    Yeah it was baffling the way we allowed 10 men to pin us back so deep- we actually improved when we went down to 10.

    Much needed win but we made it loads harder than it needed to be.

    No idea how that is a booking for Emi.

    Lovely penalty- I'd forgotten last seasons penalty woes until the commentator mentioned it. Absolutely have to win from here. Utter farce it went to VAR though- it was one of the most obvious decisions I've seen in ages yet we still get 3 or 4 minutes of checks.

    Positive start going forward, concerning at the back. Same as it ever was.

    Jordan Rhodes

    The obsession with Rhodes needs to die. He's a Championship squad player at this point and would make zero impact in the top division.

    Farke getting off lightly

    The market is constantly evolving and being reset. For Godfrey we can look at Adam Webster- older, no Premier League experience, £20m. So £30m for Godfrey doesn't sound that outlandish. For Aarons look at Wan Bissaka- slightly older but more Premier League experience- £55m. We're not matching that but again £25-30m doesn't seem out of whack with the market. Buendia see Maddison- We got nearly £25m for a player with one season at Championship level. Buendia has proven he can do it at the top level and fees have inflated in the past few seasons. Again, we'll be well within the realms of £30m+ if we're sensible. I agree we don't have others at this price point- I find it hard to value Cantwell and Lewis doesn't seem to generate the same buzz as the others.

    Much better system- a touch over complex but an improvement.

    Team for Bournemouth

    With Trybull he was specifically talking about how he looks gassed after 60 minutes most games. Vrancic I think is more about his mobility and how easy he can be to go past. He made an interesting point that for him, the technical quality of players doesn't go up that much in the Premier League, but the athleticism of those you play against does.
  10. This goes back to my earlier point though about how this is some big money making exercise for Venky's. They've loaned the club £108m, plus £43m initial outlay from what you're saying. So unless they believe they can sell Blackburn for £150m or they think Ewood park is worth some crazy amount then they can only really think about making their money back by reestablishing them in the Premier League.
  11. Ryan Sessegnon was part of a pretty crap Fulham team and was in and out of the team but still went for £25m. Teams looking at Aarons and Godfrey will be looking at their potential. Godfrey is an excellent ball-playing central defender who counts as homegrown. Teams will look at those skills and think surrounded by better team mates in a team that plays more on the front foot that he'll flourish. Similarly Aarons is in a lot of ways the perfect modern fullback- fast, comfortable on the ball, able to attack. Teams higher up the league with stronger central defenders/defensive midfielders will be licking their lips at what a player like him could do and what he could become.

    I don't know if you listen to the new Michael Bailey 'On the Ball' podcast on but he had Dean Ashton on this week who was pretty upfront that he believed Vrancic and Trybull just aren't physical enough for the league right now.

    Because I don't spend my days obsessing over instagram posts from our reserve keeper? Pretty happy to stay in the 90's if that is the case...
  14. But again, how many people are buying football clubs for the ROI?
