How bad was that team though !! 

The cost-cutting slide was well and truly on at that point.

And while we have this lock down we could have a live showing of Strachen v Pulis. The only way that should ever be played is behind closed doors locked away from the world 🤮🤮🤮

Over the last few years I seem to remember pictures of them building a bigger house, which I don't think was this one.. So maybe they've just finally moved into it.

I think but not 100%, they have built and now moved into a house near Manchester.

Swiss Ramble has gone through our accounts

 

Thank you for posting that. Nice breakdown of what the accounts mean for a simpleton like me. Haha. I think our player sales from this year will be around £15m mark. Flint was sold for £4m, Braithwaite £5m i think was reported (due approx another 2m from his sell on clause) and Randolph went for £4m. That will be offset by the combined 4m we spent on Stojanovic, Dijksteel, Bola n Browne.

Since there isn't a transfer thread at the mo I'll just stick this here.

Watmore seems to have dropped of the rader a bit in recent seasons. Think due to some serious injuries. Gooch has, on face of it, decent figures for this season. 10 goals and 1 assist. First season he has hit double figures.  24 years of age. I think he could be a good low risk free to look at. Albeit I actually want Sunderland to come up (Only if we stay up. No chance do I want to be swapping places with them).

I thought Watmore looked like a good little player when he broke through at Sunderland, I don't know what he's been like since his injury.

    • @TeaCider24 Think CT is trying to highlight the inconsistencies, when it comes to criticism of certain players. Rather than actually lay the blame at any one individual.
    • Looking at CT's last picture our Right sided CB was on our Left hand side of the 18 yard box, our RB was in the middle of the "D" instead of getting back into position and our RW was twenty yards behind play. Our entire Right side of defence was AWOL. Howson was caught in two (maybe even three) minds and partly to blame without doubt but three players were not where they reasonably should have been. One being caught out is one thing but for all three to be missing is simply staggering. 
    • Howson clearly didn't cover himself with glory in that goal and was also at fault. Not sure anyone is denying that. But Spence drifted across the entire pitch in the build up to that goal, marking absolutely nobody. He left his man on the left hand side to go stand behind the man he also wasn't marking.
    • Just for diggerlad: First clip is when the attack begins.  The goalscorer is circled and Spence isn't near to him but is near to another Blackburn player   This is a few seconds later.  Howson has left Armstrong and actually changes direction because he has seen Rothwell and he's thinking he is going to run in behind him.   Rothwell doesn't run in behind him and now Howson is our furthest man back.  Both Howson and Spence can see where is.   This is when the ball get's played across.  All Howson has to do is move a few yards and clear the ball but he stands still for some reason, a man caught up in his own thoughts.  Spence does the game thing as well but he isn't in a position to just clear the bloody ball like Howson is.     And who is marking these two players?  That's where our right back should be but because they have to do this stupid man to man marking thing, as soon as the opposition break or beat a man then we are in trouble.  So we can safely say that several players weren't where they were supposed to be but ironically, Spence was actually near to his man unlike some of the others, but he did switch off and that is a bad mistake to make.  It's just that it's far from the only mistake in that sequence.
    • Unfortunately mate there is about 6 other players that will need to be missing/injured before that happens.
