Thread: Burnley game a must win????

    Burnley game a must win????

    I think it is
    We need a win
    1 win in 9 is terrible form
    And the way the fixtures are this weekend a few teams can catch us up
    Brighton can go above us with a win
    They would have the same points as us but better goal difference

    Agree. If we don't get 3 points at home then we are well and truly fu(ked. I have no confidence in the upcoming games.

    I don't think we'll beat Burnley personally.

    But i also think we'll fluke enough points on what we have to stay up, also not every team below us will win all the time.

    On balance it;s probably a 'must not lose' as I also think we'll pick up just enough points to stay up.

    THIS game will show us if Bruce has the balls to change shape and change the team to go out and get a win.

    No denying i was impressed with the start he made, the bloke himself stating he didnt want to change the way Rafa had the side set up. We were getting points and showed we could battle for the full 90mins+

    But at an alarming rate, the mored time he has spent working with the players, the worse they have looked, the selections have been baffling, performances have been disasterous.
    The squad has been "Bruced"

    This game wont be easy, im sure most of us wouldnt even mind if we narrowly lost providing he changed things, dropped certain players who just dont have it and the team actually looked to attack and have a go.

    He claimed last week he was looking to change the formation and lineup but it was the same old crap.

    Get a few wins, the fans get happier, things look better, Ashley can regurgitate more fakeover stories while the going is good.

    This is very true. Itís ironic that Bruce blamed Rafa for his team not attacking more at the start of the season when, in fact, it looks like it was only Rafaís remaining influence on the team that meant we got so many points. One thingís for sure we are down next season with Bruce at the helm - we are getting worse and worse.

    I donít think Burnley is a must win game but if we win it, we are safe (somehow).

    This.

    We have looked worse with the more influence he has had.
