  1. That’s really interesting. So basically, we have to make a net profit of £13m on transfers to bring next summers submission down to £7m loss as opposed to £20m. That’s why they want £20m for AA which will pocket them £12m plus £1m in wages. So they can then use the £5m they’ve saved in players leaving to pay for contract renewals and new signings (loans and freebies) Get through the next submission and the ffp cycle starts again, right? 🙈
  2. Mate, we are a complete dysfunctional mess to be honest. Losing millions, a manager who shouldn’t be in post, lost 11 players, placed in an embargo with no head of recruitment. Now 3 weeks away from the start of the season, 6 weeks away from the end of the transfer window and no signings..no actual kit yet, It’s poor mate. Very poor! Things can only get better! 😊
  3. You’re struggling to understand how the influx of up to £20m effects our decision making around signings? Maybe the cheap, free agents you talk about aren’t first choice and the sale of AA would mean they could opt for their first choices across three or four positions? I have a feeling they’ve been waiting for the new head of recruitment and the potential AA money to make their move.
  4. I think the way you frame this is a choice. I choose to always remain positive and it’s served me well in life. What will be will be, only worry about the things you can effect. It’s better to endure pain with a positive mindset than a negative. Negativity doesn’t serve any person well.
  5. It was a pretty attritional game. Was interesting to see some of the younger lads play who I’d not seen before. The standout performers being Brennan, Pike, Saadi and Butterworth. The latter looks a top player if he can stay fit.
  6. Looking forwards to getting over to the game today!! 😊
  7. I think that’s the only way to get himself a new contract.
  8. Mate, the owners are losing £21m a year they genuinely couldn’t give a fuck if you buy your ticket or not. Trust me, you not going isn’t hurting them, nor is it telling them your feelings. Waggots been on £300k+ for many years too so neither does he. The club is all we care about. Bitterness is futile. It’s like drinking poison every day and waiting for someone else to die!
  9. Amen to this and a lot are jumping on the bandwagon!
  10. This is bang on! I don’t get the rhetoric that “I’m not going because I want Venkys / Mowbray / Waggot out”. Does anyone think Venkys need our £400? They LOSE £21m every year. If you want to get your point across then pay £599 for a padded seat, half time in the directors lounge and attendance at the post match press conference!! You’ll be heard (or escorted out) from there!!
  11. This is a great point!! I miss the craic too… Why don’t we set up a social within here? We meet up early in one of the pubs close to the ground and start a new thing…be a lot more relaxed in person and prob improve the message board too?
  12. My post stated my belief / opinion that supporters should ‘support’ their club by turning up, paying their money and watching their team. In my opinion, the only reason for stopping should be when you are personally effected. My own tipping point was Coyle. The guy literally made my skin crawl….his actions, his words everything. I completely disengaged from the club, message boards, everything for a period of time. It was personal. There’s also times that people are struggling financially, emotionally etc…again no problems, we all make sacrifices at times. BUT in my opinion the vast majority of supporters sit in a middle band. That middle band is a place (that I sit) where we ask ourselves every summer, “should I renew?”. Sometimes it’s an easy decision - you’re flush and TM is promising the world (sigh) and other times it’s more difficult (coming off the back of a global pandemic and a terrible season). But I always renew in that situation…because I’m a Blackburn Rovers supporter and it’s my duty to do so!
  13. Where in this post do I say or suggest that you should continue going if you can’t stand Mowbray? I say if you have “specific reasons (financial or personal)” then fair enough… I think the fact that certain posters have jumped on this so defensively assuming I’m referring to Mowbray says much more about those individuals and the questions they’re asking themselves.
  14. Argh man…get back to playing with your crayons. * muted
  15. Yeah, personal reasons, the guy made my skin crawl! You seem very defensive about this as if it was directed at you? It genuinely wasn't…I couldn’t care less if you (personally) go to the match or not. Your call 👍🏼
  16. Yeah, hence why I said ‘due to financial or personal reasons’ ….there were some personal reasons for me not liking him. The point of my post was that unless there’s something really preventing us (I even went religiously during Kean’s reign) then get down to the ground and support the team.
  17. It shouldn’t matter if we were favourites for relegation. IMHO a fan is welcome to their opinion on any part of the club. Complain all we like but as ‘supporters’ we support the club by turning up…there’s a few with specific reasons (financial / personal)…fair enough. The rest need to stop bleeting, get their hands in their pockets and get down to Ewood! 👍🏼
  18. I think he’s £30m if he has 2+ years left on his contract. £20m all day with a year on his contract imo...like the part ex idea and can see that it will work with the likes of Norwich etc who will want some off the books
  19. I have to say that I’d take a punt on Arma for £20-25m if I were a lower Prem / just promoted club. He’s young, English, scores lots of different types of goals, is quick and rarely injured. I think he’s a cracking option for the clubs linked to play on the left side of a forward 3.
  20. I can’t remember him standing out in either game last season...but as we know, if all else fails, let’s sign a centre midfielder eh!? 🤣🤣
  21. Yeah and because you ain’t heard anything, then there’s nowt happening...right?
  22. Still think he’ll go and that the manager they have in their mind is in a job already...which I’m guessing is the most likely reason for delay.
