Ah but would any of them play for £5 per week and a packet of Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls?

Granted I haven't accounted for the mythical flex, but even so I doubt all of those players are on huge wages. Some of them, for sure. The loan players in particular are probably on a decent wedge plus any loan fee that was paid, but even so, you tend to get what you pay for as far as wages are concerned. Even if some of those non-loan players are on, say, £20k a week, that's a flat rate of about £1m a year. Add in bonuses, etc, and you may get up to £1.5m or maybe even £2m. Over the course of a 4 year contract that's still around the same kind of money we paid for Brereton alone. Add in his wage which I'm guessing is around £10k p/w and you're looking at adding another £2m to his transfer fee on top of the initial fee, and that's not including anything like bonuses, signing on fees, and so on. Obviously you can adjust the figure up or down depending on what his wage actually is, but even so, over the course of 4 years it's unlikely he's going to cost less than the likes of Maupay, Pukki, McGoldrick, McBurnie or Sharp, for example. At the very least it'll be pretty close.

This kind of brain washing really pisses me off. We were in the third tier for precisely one season, yet “we’ve learned from our first season back in the Championship” - as though we had no idea what to expect.

Any player who is thinking like this needs to be shipped out pronto.

Interviews on the official site are always platitude ridden hot air.

I stopped putting any stock into them years ago. All about their body language and effort levels on the pitch over ‘the lads are wanting to put things right’, ‘we’ve a tight knit group’ , ‘[enter current manager here] is the best I’ve ever played under.

Etc etc etc.

Granted but making us sound like a small time outfit lucky to have stayed up is particularly galling.

Plenty of fans believe this tripe too.

The Club does it because it works, some fans are so gullible it beggars belief. 

The claptrap of “our first season back in the Championship”  has been trotted out numerous times even on this MB.

I read the Bennett interview earlier today and filed it in the shit bucket.

The longer we stay out of the top flight the more and more small time we’ll become.

I mean, look at PNE.

Almost 60 years too. Let’s hope it isn’t that long. Most we’ve ever had was 26 years.

Another unwanted record that Venkys probably have in their sights!

Were the Raos originally from Padiham?

I hope TM has learned Bennett is not a right back outside of emergency in fact I hope he's learned Bennett is the ultimate utility man...starting from the bench.

Somehow i'm not so sure.

So with the same players that we had in the Championship season we got relegated on a record points haul and by GD, before, have now learned alot about the same league as if its the first time they have been there? Dack, Rothwell, Travis and Bell are the only ones that might have learned (the latter i am not so sure).

With Nyambe being away with Namibia he will miss much of pre season as he will be on an extended holiday. That probably means Bennett will play right back until Nyambe gets up to speed.

That's saying Tony prefers nyambe,  quite clearly he prefers Bennet at RB.

It's a strange one because for the first three quarters of the season (injuries aside) Nyambe was the undisputed first choice. He was unreservedly dropped and never really got back in the team. During this period he signed a new deal. One school of thought was that Mowbray wanted to shoehorn Bennett into the team. Another rumour was a fall out.

Very strange.

Still not totally beyond comprehension that Nyambe could be sold he's signed the new deal and if he has a bit of exposure in his National summer tournament there might be interest.

Mowbray could see it as a way of raising a few quid and creating a space for one of his established favs at the same time.  Whatever happens there was some odd goings on with him last season for no apparent reason.
