When I first read the report on us signing him I thought he was more of a Bru / Bajner style punt but the more I read and see about him the more he sounds like a superstar!
Totally excited about this one.

I still can't believe we got him for nothing. If we'd bid £1.5M and got him I would've been happy, but the more I think about it, the more amazing we got him for nothing.
i wonder who the front line up will be at Brentford, will definitely be Murphy but then it really could be any of FS, BP and DMcG. I hope for a front three with McG and FS, with Pitman off the bench, but it really must be our most fearsome strike force for years, both in quality and now quantity, when did we last have four class strikers?!

He scores goals without needing blistering pace, the bulk of his goals last season came from his experience of getting in the right place at the right time, heading the ball well and following up, out-muscling defenders and a couple of long distance thunderbolts.
I know he's (just) 32, but that's not all that old for this type of player. He could lead our line for another 3 seasons - he's in great shape, rarely gets injured, has discovered his scoring boots as a result of finally being played in the right position and continuing to work hard (both of which contradict the 'fluke season' idea that keeps popping up), and continues to be ambitious with the right attitude.
The more I think of this the less surprised I am that we rejected the bid, however tempting it may have been to get that much money. If we want their left back I hope we bid for him separately, Murphy will continue to be too important to us and we don't have a ready-made replacement for the type of football we play, and goals we score, the way Parr can replace Mings.

Anyone been here longer than I have and know if they show the other games alongside it? Is there a second channel that'll show another game like Sky, or is this it?
Was really looking forward to a 7:15am jaunt to the bar to watch us!

They're the only team in the league (other than Blackpool) that cannot move up or down at all, regardless of their result on Saturday. I see that as great news - doesn't the prize money (and presumably player bonus) change depending on where you finish?
That's made me feel slightly better as my blood pressure continues to rise; Let's hope Blackburn see it like I see the last meeting of the year before going on holiday; you're in a good mood and don't really care what's agreed as your eyes are on the clock to head home the entire time!
