    All very exciting these foreign player signings, but ...

    I personally preferred the days when we had maybe one or two non-British players in the team as distinct from this season when we'll be lucky have two or three British guys playing. Yes I know British players are overpriced; yes I know we are looking for the best value players available, but I can't help but look back fondly to the days when the football teams in England fielded mostly British players. At least I could pronounce their names back then.

      We've only signed two (if you count Kerr) Anglophone players so far (Ryan)
      Albion = the never-ending rollercoaster ride of emotions!

      We have to get the best value for the hand we've been dealt.
      The alternative, spunking 40 million on Chris Wood, Tom Ince and Darren Randolph.
      (Yes I know Wood is a Kiwi)
      Lets all do the conga

      It's time you moved on. The world has.

      Agreed. I much preferred the days of Bas Savage & Gifton Noel-Williams

      It's almost impossible to find afford players in this country outside the PL who could step straight into the PL which is why so many players come from other countries where they have played at high levels and might be internationals, I guess the development squad is the future

      Burnley have something like 21 of their 25 players being british or irish.

      That's quite amazing.
