I'm thinking of ditching SKY in the summer. I don't like watching us on TV anyway and I'm sick and tired of our games being switched around! I like 3.00pm on a Saturday!!!

If we’re still 2nd or top after that then I’ll start to believe fate is on our side.

Think that spell will determine if we have a serious championship promoting side or not.

But returning to one of my favourite themes.

How will we get through all those games with such a small group?
'We can wait for the next game with serenity'

'I am quite clear in my mind that one has to feel sincere love for those he leads, and if he doesn't feel it naturally, then he must learn how to feel it' Marcelo Bielsa

With Kalvin suspended for our next three games & the current injury crisis I make it we are operating on 13 first-team players which is a ridiculous situation.

It feels like we've gone back to the 60's/70's with the first XI plus one substitute

We'll need some luck bearing in mind the squad availability right now Rich

My next game is Huddersfield which comes at the end of that run. ( though if sky move it back to 5:30 my schedule becomes very very tight,

But I envisage the lineup having half the U23s by that point.

Have we ever been in such a crazy place? We havent even replaced the two we lost in the window never mind strengthen the squad.

And ironically we can find £20m for a striker but dont seem too I interested in spending money elsewhere on the team, apart from two kids who we probably picked up for buttons.

Btw apparently we have made a 4th offer for Acams now, which the Southampton board will discuss at the weekend.

They'll hold us to ransom in the end. Surely the 20 mil would have been enough as it gives them good profit for someone who hardly features. Leeds need to be careful as they might do something they'll regret later.

And some fans don't think our squad is fragile & vulnerable right now!
