I have no clue whatsoever !?
At least its not Burnley away on a freezing cold Tuesday night, but 3pm on Saturday is not a lot better at this time of the year ?
A few of our guys have not quite been at their best of late so it's time for a decent all-round performance and we are currently better away from home, so I am hoping for a "decent performance". Even so this one could swing either way and we will definitely need to be on top of our game to win at Burnley. Would make my weekend if Gray came away with a brace !!!
I would love us to win but feel a draw is most likely.

I've no clue either but am cautiously optimistic. For a variety of reasons (mostly injury) we've had a number of changes (some large like Hughes going out) - some somewhat subtle (such as Kabasele sliding left in the back 3). The hope is that the chemistry will be on the uptick. For example, while we're all positive about Zeegelar's performances going forward, there have been some gaps in the back between he and Kabasele. If we get some incremental improvement there, along with the forwards getting used to where Pereyra and Carillo are going to put the ball, then we could do quite well. I think we're close to breaking into a really good run of form. Don't know if it will happen this week - especiaily as Burnley are very solid defensively, but we could.

Cheeky comment from the Pointless presenter Fulham fan here:

All I can say is enjoy mid-table in the Championship whilst we're both lording it in the top 8 of the Premier league

Good point about down our left - that has been our main weakness this season and without Britos our LB / LWB does seem to suffer lately. Need to sort that out in January.
It's funny about Hughes. Six weeks ago we were purring about Pereyra and wondering if Hughes would ever get his chance, then he has two great games and gets injured, and now we want Hughes back asap even though Pereyra is back in his place. All good news really - that the guys coming in seem to slot in pretty well, that's how you get through injury periods ... Will be interesting to see what players are brought in during the next window !! We could do with Carrillo showing some form in the coming weeks ! (I wonder if we will bring Zarate back in January as cover for Richarlison ?)

From the BBC site on the match preview page:

"With Dyche now five years into a remarkable reign at Turf Moor, Burnley must be eternally grateful to the Pozzos for their lack of judgement

They might be grateful but doubt the Pozzos are that bothered now...the media make more it than Dyche does.

Decent side. Bit worried about who will replace Janmaat after 38 mins though

hm.....

Zeeglar was a bit lucky not to be sent off last week TBH.

Must be a full back thing - getting booked/red carded.

Zeegelaar is a farkin idiot. Why go in two footed?

Our South American trio look like they're frozen, Pereyra and Rich in particular have been hopeless

I'd say so. You can't go in two footed. Thought he slipped at first but he hadn't

Looking like one of those days. A clear penalty not given and then the inevitable goal at the other end.

I wouldn't call that clear. Ball hit at him and hit and hit the top of the arm/shoulder. 50/50 job.

You can bet the crowd and Dyche were up putting pressure on the ref...

Shame we let that one in at the end of the half.

Foul was against Richarlison was it - well he probably has a negative reputation with officials after the Arsenal stuff (and even last week some pundits said he made the most of being elbowed) ..

Probably be 2-0 or something.

Interesting from the BBC: Saying Zaha dived for a penalty (mind you hard to feel sorry for Bournemouth) and reckon he ought to be banned.

It was even before the sending off, but you could tell a few of our players just simply weren't up for it. Rich looks completely out of sorts, and Pereyra was anonymous.

As I said. I think the red was soft, but Zeegelaar has left the ground with both feet, which is considered dangerous play.

These are the games where we need a proper 15 goal a season striker.

Bit like the one last night in the Championship game?

Probably be called a good honest tackle in the past but as you say not allowed now.
