But in January - I doubt DCL will come back match fit/firing immediately.
Mina - likewise and will be injured again very quickly.
Very defensive approach (again maybe understandable given the injuries and lack of replacements) from RB.
Has the game now moved on beyond that style - especially in the PL? Simms not even on the bench last night, though Gbamin was.
Biggest concerns for me:
a) relegation - not impossible given financial issues and current squad strength.
b) effect on the new stadium plans.
Iím definitely going to the Arsenal game. Another defeat and turgid performance though and I think Iím done with Senűr Benitez.
