    If we lose against Coventry

    For fuck sake.

    We don't even play in our own City. These guys actually think they've got it tough ffs.

    Max is still suspended for this one I believe bu Fadz will be back - basing team on that Drysdale played vs Nuneaton.

    Marosi
    Dabo
    McCallum
    McFadzean
    Hyam
    Rose
    Kelly
    Westbrooke
    Walsh
    Baka
    Shipley

    Subs: Wilson, Mason, Dysdale, Allen, O'Hare, Kastaneer, Bremang.

    Would love Hiwula back but not looking likely.

    For valid reasons. Not because superstars aren't performing.

    Be delighted with a draw but worry about our away form slightly, I k ow we've been unlucky in several matches with late goals but I'm not sure Sunderland is the place we will end the drought, and we have an injury hit squad

    Sunderland 2 - 0 City

    Talking about Sunderland's pathetic reason to protest.

    I can't remember a game where so many on both sides have predicted a defeat.

    If we win 7-0 we’ll have scored six.

    I reckon this has draw written all over it. Our tight defense plus their poor scoring record. Mind you at the last game, I nearly had a heart attack when I landed in the UK and checked the score to see it was 4-5.
    If he plays 3-5-2 with both Walsh and Kelly it will be a difficult defence to break down.

    Its Cov innit. We're equally capable of winning or losing this one 5-0.

    They will be seeking revenge. But while they are somewhat indifferent this season so far they are only a tad behind us if their games in hand were to propel them. But points on the board are more important than games in hand. It's a tough one this. I think we should beat them but could see a narrow defeat with us lacking that striker on the endof all our chances.
    To win wemust throw caution to the wind and go at them. For me that means O'Hare back in, Kelly and Walsh in. McFazdean in the back three. Give Westbrooke and Shipley 60 minutes under pressure to produce or Allen makes his debut.
    Go cautious and we will struggle all afternoon. Play our foootball and keep possesion. If Burge is in goal weknow exactly what to do on set pieces. Get thelikes of McFzdean up in the box.
    If wekeep possesion the crowd will get on their backs.

    Hoping 1-3 away win.

    Something has to give. It’s a toothless attack vs Burge. Could this be the game the dam breaks?

    I'll go for a 1-1 draw. I'd prefer if the 3 ex Sky Blues didn't play due to the superstition regarding previous players doing well against you.

    _________Marosi
    ___Hyam__Fadz__Rose
    Dabo__Walsh_Kelly__Mason
    ____Zain_______Shipley
    _________Baka

    Subs: Wilson, Watson, Drysdale, O'Hare, Allen, Kasta, Hiwula*

    Westbrooke,Shipley and aka our threat? I think O'hare has to be in there. I'd even drop Baka for him, he never holds the ball up anyway. Do a Pep with no big target man. Our football would do the talking.

    Probably not, because if Burge plays he'll play the most inspired game of his career yet. Probably like that old Carling Black Label advert, you know, the one with the Dambusters spoof....

    Shipley and Westbrooke combine well. Kelly has to play as the anchor. O'Hare's best/most effective games for us were as a sub.

    So like you say we either:

    try him instead of baka (don't think he's big enough or suited to it as he likes to get at people, plus he made an even worse miss than baka in front of goal)

    or

    move Westbrooke back next to Kelly instead of Walsh (which would be harsh esp after his wonder goal) and play O'Hare next to Shipley.

    Big day out last year, made a weekend of it, turned a bit silly in the end. No interest whatsoever in going again this year and not a single person I went with last year has even mentioned about going at all.

    Same as funnily enough. It's a northern game which I generally try to get to as well but just not interested for some reason.
