Burnley match thread - Wednesday 3rd March at 6pm

Recommended Posts

Haha, you lot almost got me there, then I realised this must be a FIFA20 simulation selection. I mean, who'd pick that back three? Also realised it must be an 8pm kick off, so the real team isn't out yet. You guys, honestly, such jokers, see you around 8 for the kick off........

Anyone coming for Rodgers later if we don't get a result can seriously suck my balls. There is literally nothing else he can do. He has done the right thing in setting us up to get at least a point. Any Brendan slander can do one

2 strikers but will they get any service? We know Burnley are a strong physical side with Chris Wood up there and with no little pace or creativity I'm worried. However pleased to see Mendy back and cannot say there are any glaring omissions given the state of the injury list

Is it? You really thought Ndidi, Mendy and Hamza would be starting? 

I did, as bad as it sounds I think Rodgers is just trying to freshen it up and hope we get an ugly win 

 

He obviously doesn’t trust Under, Albrighton has been very poor recently, so yes I did half expect it.

I'd actually sooner have played Morgan than taken Ndidi from midfield.

Huh? The Morgan that's not fit, has a back injury and hasn't played in several months?

Didn't realise he was still out. But to answer your question, still yes.

Re point 2. Ricardo just ain’t fit yet, hence why you ain’t seeing the explosive pace and tricks.
 

Think you’ve forgotten how he’s played before injury. 
 

Have to agree though I’d rather see him playing in his best position long-term but he’s our best option on the right at the minute. 

It's only opinion I suppose. He's been tried before this season on the right wing and I just think he looks a bit lost and contributes little there. I think he's any absolute star in his correct position though.

Hopefully the 3 CB's will give Ricardo & Castagne more license to get forward. In the last 2 1/2 games our full backs barely crossed the half way line. If they do, this can work. I trust in them I'm just concerned at the energy levels they have, a sharp version of this line up can get a result here but how sharp will they be?

I don't think I've ever been confident about us beating Burnley. I think thats come from the shithouse results they got against us in the championship.

Well, despite injuries, what a dreary defensive set up tonight. Same old same old dull defensive first half beckons, no flair or ambition. The back 4 even with Armarty are as good as anyone else is putting out at the moment. Ricardo and Castagne are both competent defenders so why not have Albrighton and Under in front of them or ... do we have to wait and go 2 goals down then panic and throw everyone on in the last 15 minutes?

 

This is Burnley we're playing, not Manchester City.
