Chester is a Roman city with almost completely intact walls around it's old centre. There are some lovely 'Real Ale' pubs both inside and outside the aforementioned walls. The railway station is a good walk from the centre and a long way from the football ground which is half in Wales at the back of a large industrial and retail park.

I am sure Hurst will have done his homework and will say,

They are a lot better team than their league position says,

It will be a tough game,

We need to be aware of their danger players,

It will be a very tight game with few goals,

BUT

Do not worry , I will put Oates on for the last half hour,

He will get us the goal we need.

I'm quite glad we didn't sign Jennings. He really didn't impress at all on loan last season and was surprised we spent so long chasing him this Summer considering. Seems like his Macclesfield spell was a flash in the pan.

It could be his injury,

When some players get a bad injury like Jennings did,

They are never the same again,

Also, he looks like a massive baby. Which is also why I don't like John Obi Mikel.

Wouldn't it be nice if his interview was like this -

It won't be an easy game, but being at home got to take the game to them and put them on the back foot.

Why? Last I checked, you don't win any points for the content of your pre-match interviews. Especially imagined ones!

As has previously been noted, how many managers have you ever seen who talk up their own team and claim they are much better than their opposition before a game? Pretty much none is the answer.

I find the continuing theme of taking digs at Hurst for his (pretty normal and banal) interviews really bizarre.

Exactly.

Only time I've really seen managers talking their team up is when they're big underdogs.
If we got a bigger team in the FACup I would hope Hurst would ditch unnecessary words of respect and talk up our chances.

But if Hurst gives it large in the BSP then fails to deliver, not only is the performance in question but his "arrogant over-confidence".

It also sets a tone for the entire season.
After that, any cautious talk will be instantly leapt upon and he'll be accused of being clueless regards tactics and and all over the place.
