    Very good start, it looks like my prediction of finishing around 15th might have been too low actually.

    The results were good wins against team that will finish midtable or below which is even better for you. The 'big 6' then Blackburn in the standings.

    Yeah it’s been a great start. Teams have really struggled with our midfield presence of Koopmeiners and Rodriguez. Hopefully we can keep it going.

    Still not bad, ten points after seven games. No shame in losing against City and Everton, good victory over a very disappointing Leicester.

    Midtable after September is where fans would have loved to be at the start of the year. Once the fixture list becomes hectic in October and December the team will truly be tested.

    I usually think for the clubs just trying to stay up their first year, losing early in the Carabao Cup is a good thing. It's not a prestigious cup nor does winning giving you a huge reward so it is more important to rest players.

    Mixed start to the season there but as expected, to be honest I think you are surpassing expectations currently, the aim this season should be avoid relegation, if you can do enough to avoid the dogfight to stay up even better, keep that distance

    Perhaps these latest results were the ones to expect. The team was over the expectations and the reality is that the season is still good. Ugly defeat at the Carabao Cup though... even if it is a minor tournament, a team like Blackburn should take it more seriously.

    Yeah it certainly makes the winter period less hectic for us. Not getting relegated has to be our number one concern.

    I’m pleasantly surprised with our start. I did just do some minor tweaks to the sliders again. Basically upped the marking for the CPU and a few other things. Feel like it’s much more accurate now.

    Yeah some changes to the sliders seem to be giving me much more accurate results of late.

    Just hanging about relegation but if things don't improve you won't be for long. 40 points usually means safety but the way the table looks, 35 might do it.

    Lillo is the man who guided Blackburn to the PL again, I think he should have more influence in the transfers. I don't know if the current performance of the team are also part of the rift, but I think it is unfair to say goodbye to Lillo.

    Once more the ownership acts like a dictatorship. Lillo deserves a monument after his great season, too bad that he is not taken into consideration for the decisions. :'(

    Four points above the relegation line. You should be careful

    The teams weakness seems to be at the back with the amount of goals conceded

    Lillo and DMC III are on a collision course for sure. Ownership has shown they are afraid to clean house 😬

    It’s going to be a battle all season to stay above the bottom 3 if we don’t get our defense lined out.

    The team is closer to a Europa league spot than relegation. Whatever the rift is about, they better find a way to solve it as the club is improving on the field.

    Really a fan of Barco, had him at a Atlético Madrid career in Fifa 18 and he really delivered. I know Fischer from his Ajax period, he was a worldclass prospect but did not made it and I think he isn't good enough for the PL. If you have the resources I really should aim at Barco.

    It is an achievement to be in the mid zone of the league table. These last results are good overall. Sadly the team conceeded too much at the back.

    On possible signings, Barco is the most interesting option, but also the most expensive.

    Think that Fischer is the most realistic signing hopefully he can make a positive impact

    I say Moses Simon. Fischer has failed in England and Germany and will not attempt another jump to those countries. MLS teams are getting financially stronger and you very rarely see an established MLS player making the jump to one of the European big leagues.

    All three certainly have there qualities. Personally I’d love Simon but don’t see him leaving Levante right now. Whether they can drum up the money for Barco is the main question. All signs seem to point to Fischer.

    The results of the team are good enough to reach the objective for a newly promoted team. So I wouldn't be worried about certain defeats against top sides. The team is over the expectations and building for the future. I have to back the manager in this sense... Lillo can't be asked for more. However, I see a sad end for him at the club whenever the season reach the Summer.

    And, yes, awful season for Leicester.

    For a promoted side the record and points are good but the defense is unbelievably poor. 50 goals allowed already is a major concern.

    The flip side is the attack is one of the highest scoring in the league. You're like a poor mans 2017 Liverpool. :)

    So Lillos tactics call for a very highline, and throwing bodies forward much like City do. Sadly our CBs and GK aren’t usually up to stopping the attacks the top teams bring. I’ve never had a defense give up goals like this team. What’s worse is that so many of them come because when a ball is cleared they clear it right to an opposing player who knocks it in 😂
