    I don't mind taking a few gambles on imported players in balance, and this year we've already signed Colback, Taylor & Blackett, so I'm happy with that so far.

    Anyone any idea on this lads injury history though? Just looking at his past 5 seasons, and he doesn't seem a stalwart........



    To put it into context, Carvalho had more game time than him last season than he's had in any of the past 3.

    Wondering if that's injury, or just better quality in front of him.

    That just counts the Europa League for some reason

    There are only 30 games a season in the Swedish league.

    THE TRUTH IS THERE AND WITH IT I GO TO THE END OF THE WORLD .

    UEL being the Uefa Europa League.

    Wikipedia has him down as playing 46/60 domestic games in the last two seasons, although that's unlikely to be right either.

    30/09/2021: It's only 8 points to the play-offs. Doesn't matter if we're 20th having lost three times as many games as we've won so far. I fancy us now that Hughton's gone.

    Is that as serious as rupturing an ACL? Asking for a friend.

    Suppose it depends on how badly you break your toe, I imagine if you break it off it probably is.

    Or if it gets sewn back on like Andy Reid's balls (back to front) or Matty Fry-up's knee (wrong leg)

    EXACT SAME BENEFITS

    It’s about mid way between that and snapping your banjo string.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    With cup/euros he seems to have played later 30s to 40 games a year, so not bad.

    Not too far off the number of games in a Championship season then. Bodes a lot better than Sow, who (on top of his injury problems) was not used to playing many games.

    Yeah, my thoughts too.

    Lots of small positive signs with this one. Like always, proof will be the pudding.

    I'm hoping for him to hit the ground running as he should be coming in ready to go with Malmo being well into the start of their season.

    Hopefully he's not one step fouad and two steps bachirou.

    Some data from Forest Analytics on Twitter from Bachirou's appearences so far this season. Pretty encouraging stuff, over 11 recoveries per 90 mins is proper Kante stuff, wins his duels at a good percentage and he seems to look to pass the ball forwards as often as possible.

    The million dollar question. Hopefully for us to improve attacking through central areas and passing through the lines the next midfield addition could be crucial to receive his passes.

    Shame he isn't about 25/26, but then he'd probably cost a hell of a lot more... Although that said, he seems like someone who's likely blossomed as he's grown into his own game more.

    Exactly the type of midfielder we need, I understand this transfer I hope he has the quality as well!

    Reminds me a little of Gueddy. If he's more consistent then he could be a very tidy acquisition.

    Seems to have right attributes for us. Seems a like seasoned pro and his experiences will allow him to transition to championship football, so seems less risky. Signings so far, although not particularly spectacular, seem a good fit for our needs and for championship, long may this approach continue.

    I had one man make me a shed and when he described what he was making it might have been a replica of the Taj Mahal for all that I knew. I just smiled and told him to get on with it.
