    Press Conference

    I don't know if he explicitly said that no ones coming in, but he did say that Godfrey is available, and Klose's return to training was very near, so we're close to having four fit centre backs again. In those circumstances, and our position, it's hard to argue to bring another defender in.
  2. Adam Webster left Bristol City for £20+ m having been a mid-table Championship player, and there's inflated figures on homegrown players on long-term contracts. Most clubs won't play young defenders because their inexperience causes them to make mistakes, but I can see Godfrey and Aarons going for at least £25+ million.
  3. The following is taken from the 2019 Blackburn accounts. The Venkys bought mid-table Premiership Blackburn for £23 million and cleared a debt of £20 million. They now have a mid-table Championship club and debts of £130 million (either that or the Venkys have put in £108 million that they'll never see back). https://s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/document-api-images-live.ch.gov.uk/docs/tSxQKk0XcPCQc3WEr1T8E_YosWI9XSFQbloDm_aDRHc/application-pdf?X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Content-Sha256=UNSIGNED-PAYLOAD&X-Amz-Credential=ASIAWRGBDBV3KHQXGGXD%2F20200115%2Feu-west-2%2Fs3%2Faws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20200115T154615Z&X-Amz-Expires=60&X-Amz-Security-Token=IQoJb3JpZ2luX2VjEO3%2F%2F%2F%2F%2F%2F%2F%2F%2F%2FwEaCWV1LXdlc3QtMiJIMEYCIQD1KpL%2FUfqhoFPf9krq7Dr4ykkkn3hRZ7dPlSnBs9%2FZKwIhAOynD2I%2FgU%2ByqjR1wIP%2F79JhBn8lB3%2BhiP2yLpjwcJyFKrQDCHYQAhoMNDQ5MjI5MDMyODIyIgyCsnAwjLxWGLVlZ5wqkQNJ3RApGG4T1uZAuw414CldtGvJgQbbNvfUkVAYdqZeomPIvMLdCpbcGZ23xoGXWj4A4QKvmWDlRN5hfE%2F3pfmOH4wF%2F4TonwME7a3rtxvQdXR%2BSg8GKc0cXsnfC8SK3e9ZTjbBFAaf8Uk8N5FCMXhuiMIj%2FsqncRb40MZdx62%2FuhOsNOm2Kr94QT98gIvx%2F9bSgCMt1B4PzoQSmaS%2B2Y7kIjejr1oPzYzf1nxvz32DIKEHuKznvvH4QQKYzym%2Fkjxsz9qUt9APojyTL0lECpT3%2BQWn2mpKKnUkKl95Ptd6EFuOwomb2DgOqsq4R9TQYeqd16ZBfQDAhLneeN6B3ZJPAU%2Fwl%2BGiYWg1T6jEl4k7N65GJ8AEnYvXEx8%2B5t3MZaz%2FBt9y4bVbyYDSpC4wcPegBSQ8IYKFTGLNjURaDAsvznwisS5o0ltw6FeZiGgKi4duAuUmjmswqdVSgTZJjacTqMwzBPuxVz30A5ab%2FYjHuOhJYyfgt%2BWr11HpAfrgv4%2BD3iI7%2FaMmxG8ma%2FAOtDB%2BSzD0ifzwBTrqAWt%2FPP23KMe9gQQTMa1J%2BG1P2IDyRnhwX0Z8JOoIPFIDwbhl9ulI4dM5KESBGsf1nkqF8hbFT0UXMI8iR9%2F89Q%2BVqxbavmYm%2FHyU7T477uaLP4gCrYPOXrKB4kdEj2nNVoWXU6TUv%2BIpo22IY%2FdfSX%2FTqJUHpLvSPFvW7KtkSY7xHOURVAKgIGbhMkZfaLMGqoUTDNm7Zq2Y2K0HU1CQWdU6nTJ5BobzH3Fws43mUSnZvUFuMdg6kvpuKv7fMDLyHr97Fgo%2FeA0jJ%2BnOisU5cbpcSLlM0cNIshnR3qRESBFtyT0HrwnKjnZ4gQ%3D%3D&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=edbae12fb6b9fad67690a109e2d65384a499068e6ffd865ee8c7e7891d3de635

    Luke Woolfenden

    Sounds like Lamberts on good form https://www.eadt.co.uk/sport/lambert-scoffs-at-woolfenden-to-sheffield-united-transfer-fee-report-1-6466361 Lambert was asked about national reports of Premier League club Sheffield United being set to make a £3m bid for his in-form young defender. "You can put another three in front of that and then I might think," he replied. "Three million?! Three million doesn't even buy you a flake! There's absolutely no chance whatsoever that would ever happen. "The big lad is playing fantastically well, everybody knows it. Three million? No way. Put it this way, I won't let the same mistakes happen like happened with (Adam) Webster and the boy (Matt) Clarke, that's for sure. "There's been no interest in any of our players as far as I know, but you can't stop people putting bids in for guys." Asked if there might be any further additions to the loan signing of Preston defender Josh Earl, Lambert said: "We just don't have the money, the money is not there. Marcus (Evans) has made it pretty clear to everybody that we can only do little bits here and there. That's where the club is at the minute. We have to go with the guys who have been great for me. "Josh could be the only one. If there's something there that Marcus thought was right then I'm sure he would try and help, but we have to remember where the club is at. You know the debts and what's gone on. He can't just magic money out the air, the club has got to keep continuing to survive. That's the way it is."

    So much for them rebuilding in League One with their young players There was talk on TWTD recently that bids had come in for Woolfenden and Downes and the dressing room wasn't exactly united as a result.

    Duda signed

    Webber's spoken before about how you need a 25 man squad in the Premiership, but really only want 16-18 professionals in the Championship, primarily to allow space for young players to come through, but also to prevent scenarios where experienced players regularly don't even make the matchday squad. Hence the desire for several loans to limit the liability, and to be able to slim the squad back down on a potential return to the Championship. But those loans can often be out of favour or unproven talent.

    Lukas Rupp

    Thanks for that, guess most people missed the bit where he said he normally plays in the centre, as a 6, 8 or 10, but can play wide. Paddy's been banging on that Farke hasn't been able to get a balance in central midfield, feeling that Tettey/Trybull protects the defence but offers little going forward, and Vrancic or Leitner struggle to protect the back four, so maybe this signing is trying to address that.

    Why we will be relegated

    Lakey just likes taking the opposite position. Hence predicting we'd finish in the top 4 this season, yet in the final six games of last season he was the most pessimistic on the board, so it's hard to take him seriously. Lake District Contrary. DCB will crawl back under his rock once we start winning again.

    Nketiah seems an odd link. Arsenal pulled his loan from Leeds as he wasn't starting regularly, something he would be unlikely to do for us.

    Then I'll be the first to say "Duda, where's my car?"

    Srbeny off?

    I would expect that means the rumours that were doing the rounds at the weekend, that we've got two deals ready to come in are probably true then. Would imagine that means a striker and a centre back coming in. Though I still reckon we could do with a number10/winger replacement for Roberts.

    I presume there was a positive tweet in there which gave it away
