It is a disgrace actually, it's fucking disgusting a team gets such an advantage regardless of our positions in the league. Not an excuse for anything, we've got the squad to twat City then make changes and beat Sunderland but it's still really poor, dont see how that can be disputed. Southampton got it even worse somehow, appalling management of the games.

It's how it is, I'm sure others have had it bad in the past.

I don't care about fairness or not. Having athletes run two games within 48 hours allows insufficient recovery time, invites injury and also does not promote quality football - which is what the premiership should be about.

They should just say no games within 72 hours and let the schedulers work it out - there are certainly enough days to do that.

After his last few performances, pretty confident with Klavan in the team, seemed to work well with Lovren too.
It looks to me as if we have signed another 'average' player. I'll hold back my complete opinion until I see the lad play

Surprised to see Firminho but the club said they're waiting on the trial. Whatever as long as his head's in the right place.

Good team, I have a good feeling about this. Wanted Sturridge to start but Origi can be blinding. I expect us to attack, attack, attack.

Llana and Mane rarely disappoint. Here's hoping we do the job  :)

With Crouch in their side we know what to expect, their forward line lacks pace so our defence can push forward that extra 10 yards and really squeeze the game in midfield.

Yep, it's dreadful, had a quick look at one of their forums and they are fuming. Hopefully it's a comfortable win.

Why wouldn't he play? There's no requirement for him not to. Besides, it's best not to talk about that.

Hughes is a woeful manager. He's like some 13 year old kid playing Football Manager.

He doesn't play Crouch all year then gets him out against a side that is claimed to be shit in the air. I mean there are another 5-10 sides who are weaker than us in that department but you never see him pull out Crouch for them. He just going by what the media feeds him.

One of the worst managers in this league.

Have to be really careful against Martins Indi, the lad has pace to burn and can hurt us if he gets in behind.

Expect Lovren and Klavan to deal with a lot of long balls today aswell, fingers crossed we don't think this will be easy.
