I'm sure they'll manage to raise their game against us ... Everyone else seems to!

It's happened year on year... It's so often 'the best time to play them' as they have injuries/poor form etc, yet it's NEVER the best time to play them... 1982 was a pretty good time to play them mind you!!
They will but that helps us over three games close together. Are they going to raise their game three times in a row? Where does that energy come from? It’s likely to compound any minor injuries they have and leave them worn out.

Because of the postponements we’ve had we aren't in as bad a shape I don’t think, and I reckon we can outrun them.

Playing Chelsea three times in a month is probably really good training for the team.

From February onwards it will feel like playing pool having played snooker for a bit.

Bang! Pow!

If Gollini is on the way out, then perhaps use Austin against Morecambe.
