So it’s ten at the back and lump it up to Joelinton then. This will be fun. Hoof it out, give it back to them, rinse and repeat. Keep the loss down to 2 or 3.

Dummett made his comeback and it managed to rule him out for 2 more games?

Glad we’ve stuck Wilson on the bench, pointless playing him v City or Liverpool.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Darkest Dungeon was free on Epic the other day, feels like a suitably despairing game to pair with watching this...

Apparently it's our best start in the premier league since 14/15, by one point less, despite one season not being in it. How's that a f***ing stat.

We’ve got nothing as per. Hoof to
Joelimpton - lose it. Man City pass it around and attack. We luckily get it back and hoof up to joelinton. Repeat again and again

Why isn’t Schär given the freedom Clark has? He’s so much better coming forward... (and Fede should be CB, Schär should be RCB)
I had the first custom w***

f*** me - not sure what cabbage head was expecting when the only outlet is 60 yard punts up top to no ones. Every week - same style - regardless of opposition . Pathetic .
