I watched the extended highlights from last nights game which was released by leads. No lie, there were more comments from BB fans than there were Leeds fans.

All very surreal this fandom, for a player yet to really do much in his career. pepsi sponsorships and the lot lol. If I was in the squad, id be checking my bloodline to see if I could qualify for Ecuador or somewhere.

I see £££ and if we had a decent CEO they would too. 

Exactly.

Any relatively commercially savvy organization would be thinking about how to make inroads into a potential new market of 19m people. Wasn't this the whole reason Venky's bought us....to get the Rovers brand into the Indian market. 

Sadly, we are run by Steve Waggott who counts Coventry and Southend as his previous experience. 

Another, in my view fairly obvious point, throw money at a new contract for Brereton - it would pay for itself if the club could actually work out how to create an income stream from 'Brereton Mania'.

It really isn't Harvard level business economics. Venky's if you're listening.......I'll come and run the commercial organization, for double Waggott's salary and a season ticket.

Double?!  You want £600k a year?!  Jeebus!

Given expenditure is clearly very tight, what are you expecting the club to do? Open a branch of the Roverstore in Chile? Honestly, beyond boosting our social media profile I’m not sure what we could do given the circumstances. A preseason tour of Chile is hardly on the cards. Getting him to sign a new contract is easier said than done I’d imagine.

Exactly, what a likeable lad he is. I'd written him off but I don't think I've ever wanted to see someone succeed more than him.

And on the other hand, you have Mowbray.

We currently have an on line retail presence……perhaps look into the logistics of a Chilean distributor? Perhaps look into a more club centric marketing approach? Perhaps think about selling club broadcasting rights (which we now own since leaving iFollow) to a Chilean digital agency/broadcaster? Perhaps think about having a Spanish/Chilean online presence?

It’s not about flogging shirts out of the back of a van.

Finally the media have recognised one of the Summers best stories. There is an honest admission from Brereton about his disappointing form for his first two years here. 

"I learnt a lot of things out there, different styles of play and I'm going to bring it back here (to Blackburn)."

If he's now seen the 'bigger picture' stated in that article then he will absoloutely walk away on a free in 12 months.

Wouldn't that really sum up TMs tenure. Signs a kid for a huge sum of money, never really gets anything out of him, and then he walks away for free at the end of his contract. All that money wasted.

Glad someone posted this here.  

at min 00:18 Ben orders a CHACARERO, which is a chilean sandwich made with thinly sliced steak or pork, topped with tomatoes, green beans, a few chili peppers, and optional mayonaise, served on a round bun.  it's my american wife's favorite sandwhich and, it seems, was named by the american Time Magazine as one of "The 13 Most Amazing Sandwiches The World Has To Offer". (i don't care for the green beans)

I like how the girl at min 00:23 yells "Pass it to him!" ("pásasela!"), underscoring what many chilean fans felt--that BB was not given enough passes by his team mates.

Good for him.   Enjoy your moment.  Get paid.
