    Board wants us to reach the R32 in the Cup
    Board wants us to achieve a high league table finish
    Personally for the first year I couldn't care less for the cup, but want to work really hard to finish 1st or 2nd in the Championship.

    Good luck mate. Hope you can get them competing with the Chelseas and the Liverpools of the world nice and quick.

    Thank you. We will be doing a financial takeover in this career so hopefully that will be interesting and will help us achieve those goals

    Yeah, I saw you say something about that in the chat thread.

    I've got to say, I don't normally like when people do that because most people do it just to bring superstars to Wycombe Wanderers or someone like that, which is extremely unrealistic, but I could see something like that happening to Blackburn.

    I agree, but I mean Blackburn do have a pretty deep history, and have won a lot of silverware in their day. I also think I didn't go super over the top with the transfers, we'll see what you guys think though.
  • I did an article for that one as it was my first transfer, and will probably do one for my "big" transfer, but the others will all be clumped in one post.

    Redmond's a solid signing for your rotation. Won't set the world alight, but he's worth that fee.

    Fun fact: Nathan Redmond scored a hat-trick on his debut for the Birmingham City under-10 team back in '02.

    Good luck! Redmond is a solid signing. Interesting choice of manager.

    Good luck. Yay Venkys is gone! Would have kept Bowyer on as he is great for the youth/reserve team.
    Redmond is a good signing, will be nice to have two pacey options in King and Redmond on the wings if needed, but Marshall and Conway are probably the better options (atleast in real life)

    Good luck this should be quiet interesting, I echo Neal about the manager but it will be interesting to see what angle you take using the new manager.

    Nice idea with saying a price range instead of the exact price, it adds some realism.

    It is nice to see someone using the resource pack as well. :)

    *Messed up the writing a bit when I resized stuff, it should read if Blackburn gain promotion, Byram joins for 3 mil

    Seems like a decent concept, promotion is a must this season.

    Good luck.

    Superb young British signings especially Mowatt. Gl. Good team choice tbh.
  • Thanks for all the comments guys! I tried not to go too overboard with the signings but I do have a few more to post and they are probably the more controversial ones. Hopefully my explanations seem reasonable enough though.
  • Two great signings!
