    Things you dislike about football.

    "....And it's Live!!!" Just feck off Tyler. I know it's bloody live. Jim White. "It's all so unbelievably exciting!!" (as opposed to Bob Mortimer on the Athletico Mince podcast "doing" Jim White, which is just superb)

    Danny Graham should start up front. Every single time. Preferably with Dack behind him. Anything else is just wrong. G’night.

    See I'm at it now! It's a common mistake!

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Goalkeeper - might be similar to Raya. Don't know yet. Right Back - would start with Nyambe. JRC and Bennett can cover. This will do I suppose. Big season for Nyambe. Centre Half - the one I was hoping for and the one that would have been my priority. An experienced 30+ year old who could organise the defence, get them set up and switched on. I don't think we got that and we certainly didn't have it before. But we did get a 6 foot 4 centre half in from Man City, rated by their manager. Leaving us with Lenihan, Williams (looks comfortable enough in there for me), the aforementioned Tosin. Also Nyambe can cover, plus there's Grayson - and maybe even Mulgrew yet. But we're one short for me if Mulgrew does go. So maybe we will bring in a free agent? Don't know. Left Back - Cunningham sounds just the ticket. Bell, Hart can cover and Williams of course. Upgraded Midfield - Johnson and Travis every week. Upgraded through Johnson. Plenty of cover and bodies here. Evans, Smallwood will do a job but you'd hope their playing time will be limited. There's also Downing, Davenport, Bennett. Attacking Mid - Dack, Butterworth, Buckley perhaps? Can take from the pool of other midfielders and forwards if need be. Forwards - Graham, Gallagher, Armstrong, Brereton, Samuel, Chapman So in summary more than enough cover up front and in midfield. Where you fit them all in I have no idea and there is a lack of width for me, but that's not how we set up. Defence: improved the left back position. Right back; as you were. Centre half is clearly the concern. I see that Cunningham and Williams played at Bristol City together so hopefully they'll have a good understanding. Would have loved to have seen that Kevin Moran, Craig Short, Henning Berg type brought in but there you go. We shall see.

    Greatest player for a Lancashire club.

    My old man says Best was the one. That’s not belittling anyone by the way. Sir Tom was a top fella by all accounts, he was in the army with my wife’s late grandad (rip) who also said he was a top bloke, as was he. Ronnie was a lovely fella, captain of England. Dougie, another really nice guy. Still goes to Ewood of course. So to contradict myself I really wouldn’t worry too much about who was the best. They’re all absolute legends.

    Sorry if I wasn’t explicit enough, when I said “two up top” I meant two strikers. Anyway, we digress.

    Massive call that, whoever the manager is.

    That would be great. I’d play with two wingers and two up top all day long in this league but I’m not sure where Dack would fit in on that one.

    If you think we play with wingers then that’s fair enough, no worries. Right sided forward / left sided forward at the best. Not out and out wingers in my opinion.

    Ah ha! Someone else had noticed! Seems a shame to shatter that illusion. Anyway, we’ve finally signed a centre half! However I expect that Man City are just agreeing Pep’s pay off package before appointing the WBAS board as their new manager. Of course I jest but it will be great to hear from so many happy posters on here now that this is finally over the line.
