    Absolutely. But how many times have we seen a div 3 team go to a top club and compete. Let alone go to a team lab erect of confidence.. in a one off, I honestly think SAFC as they are now, on a crest if a confidence wave, would stand a good chance against those who have little to none

    we would get battered I've watched quite a few prem games the speed, the passing accuracy coupled with champions league finishers makes it mountain we couldn't climb.

    I wouldnt fancy Flanagan against Harry Kane like.
    A one off match is different, we'd treat it like a Cup final and probably make a good account of ourselves.
    Over a full season would be completely different. Sheff United would hammer us if we played them now

    Did anyone watch Leeds V Chelsea, last night, sorry yesterday afternoon? was like watching two colliery welfare teams, giving the ball away time after time. Admittedly they were pretty quick, but overall the football was poor.

    You're not seriously comparing us to Chelsea are you?

    I can't actually answer that question because I'm not sure what changes I would make other than Hume when we have a fully fit squad, this is a team on our best run since God knows at a time when we have probably our longest injury list for ages. We have players playing out of position but as results are going are performing better than the first choices for that position.
    I'm hoping that is down to LJ and the confidence we now have, if it is when we have a full squad we will be exceptional and believe would be half decent in the championship.
    The bottom 3 in the Premier although look **** we are know other that there is a massive gulf between the championship and even the bottom 3

    Op Question was the bottom 3 though mate. I have no doubt that most semi confident pl sides would walk all over is, but Sheffield Utd and West Brom are both dire and have zero confidence. Add the mags to that at the minute and I’d give us more than a fighting chance!!
