I can't find the post, but I said when we flogged him for a pittance he would go on to play for Spain and here we are..

I don't want to go over old ground, but whilst he had a few weaknesses his positive attributes far outweighed those. The guy was class and produced saves he had no right to make.  Sold one of our own for a pittance to a rival. Some of the worst business I've ever seen. It's not like he'd never played a game for us and was somewhat of an unknown quantity.  Raya had exhibited massive amounts of potential.  Absolutely sickening. That we have a downgrade in Kaminski that's fairly steady no makes it no less bitter of a pill to swallow. Shocking piece of business!

If you don't want to go over old ground. Why have you just done exactly that ?

I quite clearly do want to go over old ground or I would not have posted would I? Take it as tongue in cheek or however else you want. I don't really care.

I'm generally with you and likewise predicted Raya was an international keeper in the making, even prior to him making his first team debut at Ewood.

Stop blaming the club for him leaving. He wanted out and you can't stop someone leaving if they want to.

Glad he has been called up. I hope he does well.

Yes, you can if they're under contract. That's the point of contracts. It's also why he didn't leave for free. Because we could stop him leaving, so they had to offer an amount we found acceptable. Which we did, and we let ourselves get ripped off.

Downgrade in Kaminski?

Kaminski who’s being getting into the Belgium squad for the last year or so?

In my opinion, Kaminski’s been better for us than Raya was during his time.

Raya was decent but had his shaky moments. Remember him being (rightly) dropped a couple of times.

The issue with Raya is that we initially replaced him with Walton. That was the real failure.

We didn't get enough for him.

Raya was sold to fund the acquisition of Gallagher. That worked out well didn't it?

Looking at that Spain squad.  Its a farcry from xavi iniesta villa torres casillas pique silva puyol

Is this another example of downgrading David’s abilities? It seems no matter what the lad does there’s always going to be those that will never admit how good he is. By the way he’s pushed out the Manure keeper from the Spain squad.

He’ll play for Spain one day. Not good enough for championship Rovers though.

I wouldn’t say loads of clangers, a few maybe. As bad as Kaminski’s at Fulham ? My mum could have held on to that one.

It was awful business by the club all round.

  • Pushed out the door by Mowbray's public criticism and being dropped for no logical reason.  
  • Sold to a rival who ended up getting promoted.
  • The fee wasn't great for what he was.
  • We had no backup plan and had a huge downgrade in goal until we bought Kaminski (who I rate just a bit below Raya)

Just a classic Mowbray/Venkys cock up all round really.

Looking at this sort of press I wonder why he left.

You missed the bit where he wanted to leave the club

No I clearly mentioned the bit where Mowbray pushed him away from the club with his behaviour 

He'd become erratic, I think it was obvious we needed an upgrade.  Great reflexes but cost us a lot of points with his antics.
