My god that list is terrifying mostly and when we look at the losses in recent years you can just see why they keep adding up, ridiculous.

Just reinforces the point of Why gamble on those odds when the wages can be used on something more likely to get useful. It's not building a promotion team it's just plugging gaps again to tread water.

Thing is, which odds are you referring to? The names on there include young European players as well as experienced players from the league above.

No point getting into who we sign first, apparently they're almost certain to fail:

Well done to Rich Sharpe for having the balls to put his name to that and get it in the Paper, mind you it does, correctly, give extended credit to TM for Rothwell.

All of them, especially when you've been told you are looking for experienced championship ready players although that quote can be misleading without chucking in under 30 !

We've signed a lot of absolute wasters under Venkys, not just the first one through the door.

Whittingham never been seen since but it fails to mention he was paid up to go so he's probably been enjoying a nice holiday.

At times it's like someone at Ewood looks around for players with pay off potential not play off potential - just how many have there been ?

That list of names is flat embarrassing.

Good job Sharpe didn't keep going as it was probably Carlos Villanueva in 2008, Maceo Rigters in 2007, Jason Brown in 2006, Shefki Kuqi in 2005, Javi De Pedro in 2004, David Yelldell in 2003, Sebastian Pelzer in 2002 and Ciccio Grabbi in 2001🙈

The sad list of our first summer signings probably (likely) goes on...

Hey, harsh on Kuqi!

Vorm would be perfect to work with Raya considering the height similarity, but no chance it’ll happen unfortunately.

I must have missed the Downing signing. Welcome Stewart!

And I missed Manchester United signing Dack.

For sure. Their fans ain't happy he was released. 

Where have you seen this? 

I’ve just looked at their forums and there didn’t seem to be any regret from their fans on there....

Twitter. 

Perhaps I need to extend my research on Cardiff. The message board would definetly be more reliable.

Nothing lasts forever no and of course there is that risk with older players, but plenty of 33 and 35 year olds still do well at this level and higher. The two lads did pretty well last season, so going off that would eleviate my concerns somewhat. 

I just look at the drop off in form from Charlie Boy last season and I think do we need to take a chance on two more ?

Steven Davis has signed for Rangers and Hoban is neither ever fit nor particularly good anyway.

I agree completely. He got several new contracts around transfer window time when he sulked about not getting a move. As good as he was for us he sullied his reputation through sheer greed and blackmail.

Not in Duffy's class there though!

I was so excited when we signed Rigters.

I was on holiday, saw the SSN breaking headline, stopped for a beer. I thought we'd signed a worldie.

I was seduced by the Charlie Newhouse YouTube reel.
