  1. Bolton did score 4 first game in pre-Fernandes era so a little bit of perspective.

  2. Steady!!!!, I agree with that as it means we are doing something right?, If we take more chances in front of goal we will be doing fine!!!!!. Nobody can deny we play good football now and attack the opposition more than ever, yes we are still gelling as a team but all in all not bad at all!!!!

  3. From the stats, the conclusion that comes to my mind
    Sell : Carroll, Downing, Skrtel, AggerLoan Out : HendersonBuy : Gameiro, Hazard, Samba, OtamendiLoan In(with option to buy) : CanalesTreadmill : Put Adams on this 24 by 7 and don't feed him till he improves his pace and acc(I know the fact that this guy is probably the slowest player in EPL is not up there)

  4. I actually despise fans like you, get some perspective and quit pulling sh*t out of your ass.
