The article says that one of our players is going the other way ("Fotbollskanalen.se erfar att Premier League-klubben betalar en summa pengar plus

att en av deras spelare går till Blackburn"), but without naming names.

What is the math (ugh) then?

 

Vaughan plus £3-4m? ....... therefore with only a little dent in the transfer budget and a vital area solved.

 

Perfect business and Vaughan returns to the North West.

Blackburn were reported to want £4m for Ollson. So may be its £2.5m - £3m plus Vaughan?

If the story started from Expressen it will be most likely reliable. Expressen is quite reliable what comes to their own news, but it still is (dont know if right word) afternoon press paper, so it pick lot of bs from other magazines that gives selling headlines and Swedish national team player moving to premier league is always good story there.

Anyway thumbs up for this move, if true. Olsson is classy defender with still quite a lot potential to develope even better.

Always good to have your ''inside information'' Lavanche. Olsson is the player I''d like to see to compete with Garrido at LB. Even better that he can also play LM if needed. What''s your view on the current situation with Toivenon, Lavanche?

[/quote]he must be taking a hefty pay cut if his Blackburn contract is for $18m per year. i would guess that is meant to be Krone, but even that is the very top of our (guessed) pay structure.

So happy with this, if true. Been saying for a while that he is the obvious choice for our LB addition this summer. Real quality player and one of the few who can keep up with Walcott. Strong too.

If the Naughton rumours are also true, then our defense - in terms of cover, competition and variation - looks quite remarkable, especially when compared to the defense of our first year in the PL. Every individual defender offers something different, but all provide great competition for each other.

Anyone remember when Zak Whitbread was a good option?

Lavanche: do you have any more info on Hetemaj? Has that gone quiet?

"he must be taking a hefty pay cut if his Blackburn contract is for $18m per year. i would guess that is meant to be Krone, but even that is the very top of our (guessed) pay structure."

 

Indeed, this is one of countless errors in the Googe translate-sourced translation.

 

The original refers to 18 million SEK (kronor or Swedish crowns), not dollars. Which works out at about 1.8 million of our GB pounds, or 45 k/week. Very high-sounding for currently a Championship player.

MilitantCanary: Nothing new about Hetemaj yet. After Belarussia game he just stated again that few teams from England and Italy have made offer for him and that for him it is important to take next step, but still getting playing time.

Yellow Since 72: Scandinavian papers seems to know much as english about Toivonen. So what is written in pink un seems to be everything we know up here. Dont speak dutch enough to understand what they are speaking there ^^

So I would guess the situation is quite much as it is stated in media and he considers the move, but is not sure if it is the right one for him.

If all of these rumours are true then a defense of:

RB: Whitaker/Naughton.

CB: Bassong, Turner, Martin, R.Bennett

LB: Garrido/Olsson.

Would be pretty fantastic. Compare that to what formed the majority the season before:

RB: Martin/Naughton(loan)

CB: Ward, Whitbread, Barnett, De Laet, Ayala

LB: Tierney/Drury.

Infact when you look at that it is plausible to think that only Martin and Naughton will remain from that defense only two seasons ago.
