I'm in America, but I've still hidden my dog just in case.

Just in from a red-eye flight, body thinks it's 5am and I've had one hour's sleep since 6am the previous day.



Planning to spin straight through until full time. Drinking. This'll end well.

Good luck to all those on the walk to the John Smiths today. I hope your efforts are fully rewarded.

Berardi and Ayling start at centre-back. Dallas right, Alioski left according to Hay

I think we might need to outscore them today to win if you know what I mean: 1-2 or 2-3 rather than 0-1 or 0-2

Big game for White, looking forward to seeing how he does.

This is absolute insanity (moving White when Cooper is out) in my view. I’ve never questioned Bielsa, so I hope there’s something slightly tweaked from our normal formation but why on earth wouldn’t you leave white in at centre back to retain some semblance of stability with your captain out?

I think he’s thinking where the key impact is and which bit of the field you’d control first. Is it worse to have a better back line getting battered because you’re not controlling MF?

Apart from Douglas, our bench needs a babysitter.

Suspect it will be more of a back 3 today.

Yes, at times 2 with White in front and falling back in and sitting forward again after you'd think. It might suit him, who knows. For science!

Yeah, it’s equally likely that Dallas will spend a lot of time in midfield and we’ll be pretty fluid
