Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I think you are all wrong. There is more context here. On a simplistic level: - A player is worth what someone will pay for them to the people making the purchase . If a selling club wants twice what is offered then they aren't worth that much to anyone apart from the selling club . I think you'd re...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Millwall, Sat 11 August 2018, KO 15:00

Figure I will try to create these threads on the day after a match (or if it's weekday match a little earlier). Not the day after the match that they are about I'm assuming? Also, impressive level of agreement on the poll so far. I think we may be entering the early stages of evolution into a hive ...

In the same way I'm insisting on getting a company Maserati?

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Imagine football clubs as airtight nordic bakeware, some regularly repaired and well maintained, regularly replaced seals etc... other’s neglected and allowed to fall into disrepair. Now imagine that losing creates pressure within these containers. I imagine we wont know how well our nordic bakewar...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Sounds like there is a strong perception of a right mess behind the scenes there. It's nice to reflect on how settled things are at Rovers at the moment. Amazing what winning can do.

Re: Adam Armstrong

Hardly. He could say that his Great Dane is massive. His appetite for custard is massive. His Nordic bakeware collection is massive. None are about the club and therefore don't count in the massive list. The ability to use descriptors of size about other arbitrary objects or concepts does not an ent...

Re: The US sports thread

It's getting near the time to think NFL Fantasy League again. If anyone wants to chuck a team into the Roverstalk league, let me know ASAP so I can add you in.
