    Can we cope with the fixtures backlog ?

    Can we ? Will we ? Some more players may have gone, some might have come in by then. One of them may have come back from Africa with a winners medal.
    We could have done with playing Watford and winning the game. Surely we could have , couldn’t we.? What a timely boost that may have been. The games will be coming thick and fast for sure. Our threadbare squad is being pushed enough as it is.
    Do we want to stay up ? I reckon we do.How we do it ,is out of our hands and another matter.It seems a lot to ask to get the ball rolling, a couple of good results would put us all in a better frame of mind . I believe - do you ? It’s “Dare to Dream” all over again,before the dreaming turns into the nightmare waiting to happen !

    With our squad size the fixture backlog will probably prove a nightmare with our injury prone players, unless ..

    Three tips for our dozy recruitment team:

    Jason Knight - Derby - £10 million.

    Dan Neil - Sunderland - £3 million.

    Tyrone Campbell - Stoke City - £10 million.

    Boost the squad no end, all young with great sell on value - WTF are we waiting for.

    Don't go making suggestions BT, you'll be giving them nosebleeds.

    My old dad always used to say, towards the back end of the season, games in hand are no use, you want points on the board, and over the years, he was usually proved right, those stranded at the bottom with games in hand very rarely got out of trouble.

    If he was still here he'd be saying to me, 'Sorry son, your games in hand will come and go, you'll lose most of them, and you'll be going down'. Much to my irritation, the old boy was right about most things, and I think he's right about this.

    I think the recruitment team are still sampling the wine over in Italy trying to get Ramsey to reduce his 300k a week to 25k.

    Your all forgetting the Dyche settling in period as well so even if we were to sign them BT there will 3 weeks and then a cameo bench appearance for 6 minutes , so if By miracle we do sign players you can expect to see them around the end of feb - longer if we managed to get a win between now and then as loyalty to the old brigade is paramount

    I think Dyche might be rethinking on the loyalty thing, hopefully for the better.
