Before we get stuck into a few hopefully well drawn thoughts on the game it would be criminal of me not to draw your attention to Blackburn’s ace in the hole.
Technically it’s sod all to do with Blackburn really, but @TheBigSam would be worth the price of admission alone if Twitter charged.
So, nonsense out the way for a nanosecond, let’s ave a look at this weekend’s slags. In the form stakes, the real Big Sam’s mob are a cigarette paper away from us. League positioning confirms this with Blackburn being only one point behind us and goal difference the reason why.
So we have enough players on the sick list to form their own team. Will this prevent the booing and groaning if all does not go according to plan? I think not.
Predictions? I still fancy us to win. Despite everything I expect us to win. An unedifying 1-0 is 11/2 -ish. For depressive money earners us to lead at half time, lose full time is about 33/1 for those seeking to find it.
