i so hope i am wrong

well the game against wba is on the horizon and for me this is the acid test as to where we are and where we will end up this season....i am hoping bilic has carroll on the bench for this one and starts with chic/sak upfront but i doubt he will change the side from monday nights win...it was a good win but lets face it they were just average and if they survive this season it would be a surprise so all the noise trumpeting our first victory of the season for me does not paper over the gaping holes not cracks in the team....our defence looked solid i heard mmm well when not attacked any defence would be....midfield creativity zilch and that will remain so until lanzini and better recruitment in that area is taken up..playing a true fox in the box wide left well now theres an innavotive idea....Pulis is nobodies fool and after there bad defeat last week i fully expect them to be at our throats from the get go and then we will see just how good our defence is! i hope i am wrong and we stuff them 0-2/3 but i am still yet to be convinced.

Dont under estimate Huddersfield there's no easy wins in the prem and they have more points than us and it was still a good result. Funny how its a tricky fixture before a game and a piece of cake after you've got 3 points

I agree. i think huddersfield at home will be very strong this season. their home form may keep them up. bit like burnley, no one will really look forward to playing away to huddersfield this season imo.

can't win really can we? I thought that too but I'm tagged as the Bilic lover, in the minority so I keep a lot of powder dry. Same with West Brom this week. Pulls this and that, gonna work us out because Bilic is crap, playing people out of position, there going to bounce back after a defeat blah blah blah. If we beat them, it'll be yeah they're crap, Pulis is a dinosaur, lost 2 in a row relegation candidates etc...Nobody on here said before Monday that Huddersfield will get relegated. Wagner was another golden boy, another Koeman, Marcus Silva! Started the game 5th not having conceded a goal. Play us and lose and they're relegation certainties. Oh and don't talk to me about life!!!! Cheer up boys it may never happen ; ))

Must admit Mac I'd rather Sakho and Hernandez and altho I say horses for courses, we are so far down we need to establish a settled side, formation as a plan A first so I expect him to stick on this one. Quite why neutralising Hernandez wide left is a good idea is any ones guess. Both arnie ant and Sakho are more suited to that position, there are rumours Hernandez dropped for arnie this week but that sounds absurd.

i believe hernandez can play in the middle of a 3. that is when carroll doenst play. but it doesnt make sense to drop such a good finisher when carroll plays so i can see the logic. its a case however of not really thinking about the system before buying the players. where are they all going to play? carroll and hernandez in a 2 would work well imo.
