Seems to have turned a corner with the exception of a bad blip against Luton. Credit to him.

Since we lost to Wolves we're five wins, a draw and three defeats in nine. Two of those defeats were Arsenal and Liverpool which you expect although we really could have got something from Liverpool had the ref been more consistent. Other than the Luton defeat it does feel like things are changing a bit and we've a run of fixtures coming that we should hopefully pick up some more points from, even United at home doesn't seem too daunting.

Just a shame there's another fucking international break coming next month.

Settled side, and barring injuries/suspensions, gonna be this for the League:

1) Pickford
2) Patterson
3) Mykolenko
4) Tarkowski
5) Branthwaite
6) Onana
7) Harrison
8) Garner
9) DCL
10) Doucoure
11) McNeil

Virginia; Young; Coleman; Keane; Godfrey; Gueye; Danjuma; Beto; Chermiti

Changes for Wednesday night: game time for Godfrey, Gueye, Danjuma, Beto...?

Hope he doesn't make many changes for the Burnley match. One match away from a cup QF where there are going to be some lower league teams. It's a big opportunity.

Would rather win the Burnley cup match than the Brighton league match.

Yeah we are doing better and he seems to have largely settled on a first eleven that works. The football isn't anything special but its not as horrendous as it could be.

Managed DCL really well, and really responsibly. Deserves credit for that.

Many managers would've just played him injured and half fit in an attempt to save their own skins.

Agree BD!

The last three managers have rushed Dom back and it’s backfired massively

Dyche has allowed him to recover with no pressure and it’s worked

Defo deserves huge credit for that. Very impressive

He got lucky with the Gana injury. I don't think we'd be where we are if he'd been allowed to drop Onana as he'd planned.

He has kept Gana on the bench for the last two games to his credit though

Finally gave him the right tools and guess what? We look like a solid mid table team.

Shame we wrote off the first few games expecting him to somehow get points with Maupay and Dobbin in the starting eleven.

It's not scintillating football but it's functional and effective. It's no coincidence we've beaten Brentford, Bournemouth and West Ham who all appeared to be having a bad day... We're just pretty horrible to play against making teams look off the pace.

Would have been nice to have started the season with City, the shite, Arsenal, Spurs and Villa, sides that generally beat us well. Then we would have had reinforcements for the easier games.

But it's done now and hope we can continue to improve and at least start beating the poor sides of the division.

Dyche's job (barring takeover) looks considerably more safe in recent weeks.

Not sure we should have expected an instant turnaround without bumps given the job he had in front of him, but over the longer term the arrow is at least green and on a positive incline.

Honestly I wanted him gone a couple weeks ago. Thought him losing 9 of 10 matches at home is enough to see him gone.

Starting to play much better. Think if we had actually picked up a few earlier wins against easier opponents he would be getting praise instead of criticism. Next 8 weeks will tell us if we actually have turned the corner.
