We want to build that mentality at home, that fortress created by the fans and the way they go about it. They have been excellent. Home or away, by the way, I couldn’t question them. I think the team have responded at home and some of the away performances. They stepped off a little bit last week, but generally the team have responded and given the fans something to cheer about. You know it is not just a one-way street this - the players have to use their energy but then give the energy to the fans and I think that’s been a good balance so far,” says Dyche. [EFC]

To no surprise, it looks like Iwobi will be waiting on any contract decision until the end of the season. [soccernet]

Eventually players have choices, so we recommend they make good choices. But behind that, he [Dele Alli] is factually injured. He’s come back with a proper injury that’s going to take some time to get sorted out, so he’ll use that period wisely, I a manager you cannot control everything in their lives. Should we be following them all day? You can only guide them. He has an injury which will take a while to sort out - it will be a number of weeks,” says Dyche. [BBC]
