    SaintRam got a reaction from Mick Harford in Armand Gnanduillet   
    I don't mind signing players who are burning hot in January in the hope they wont cool down until after the end of the season. That's not the worst strategy ever. Confidence plays a huge part in form as we've seen in abundance within our own squad. But it should be low cost, low risk signings that you don't mind moving on shortly after signing them.
    The mistake with Nick Blackman wasn't signing him - it was the money we paid for him and then the money we paid him. Thanks to Mr. Clement and Mr. Rush.

    While this made me chuckle; it is my biggest worry about the incoming investment. I hope MM is still the shotcaller after it comes in, I'd worry about the commitment to Cocu if he wasn't.

    Our last three seasons:
    Snog Frank Lampard
    Avoid Gary Rowett
    Marry Phillip Cocu.

    It's almost a shame he's not the owner.

    Fantastic interview, thanks @OwenB87.
    He's a brave man to take such a long term position on how the club can progress, I really hope that courage is rewarded.

    Think this deserves its own thread, very interesting interview from Cocu and a reassuring one.
    Anyone who doubts the guy really needs to take this interview on board, we're very lucky to have him and we will be reaping the rewards a few years down the line.

    You're telling me that you committed the cardinal sin of changing teams, yet you still didn't pick the one that shared a nickname with Derby? This and those trainers you flex on Instagram are making me seriously question your character.

    Don't worry; its all just talk until the championship games come.
    Take consolation in the fact that at the end of week 17 last year; Chiefs Saints SB was nailed on among media and most neutral NFL fans - and neither of those teams made it.

    When I started out as a Falcons fan, Saints were on fire. Left the Falcons and it derailed the Saints Super Bowl charge.
    Now I’m a Steelers fan, Ravens are in fire....decisions decisions 😂

    10 goals in 14 starts in League One this season so far. He's also 6'4"
    The source of this rumour appears to be 'Football Insider'; I've no idea if that's actual journalism or a rumour mill. If its the latter, the DET jumping on it doesn't make it a real link.
    All these links with big target men aren't that surprising though; Cocu had Luuk de Jong while winning at PSV, right? Quite an easy/lazy link to create (or a reasonable direction for him to look if the info that we are looking in to them is legit).

    I guarantee that the majority of Leicester fans did not think Jamie Vardy was premier league quality when his discussion inevitably came up for them in 2013/2014.

    Yes, De Jong was one of the first signings for him at PSV so I'd expect big centre forward to join here as well. I could add that I like the idea, that's how I like my sole striker as well.

    Tbf everytime Rooney moves on he doesn't talk about how he's conquered the nation he's just been playing in. Playing in the 2nd tier of English football would damage the image of a god-like footballer Ibra seems to have of himself. 
    Different kettle of fish to Rooney.

    Ah well; my plan was 3 points away from being perfect.
    If only I'd played Kenyan Drake instead of Bollywood Brown.

    Not sure critical claim and multiple award wins is failing to deliver.
    People who don't like the genre shouldn't get sold on hype; they should be more careful what games they play, and not blame a game for failing to pander to their tastes when it is doing exactly what it should be doing. I don't know anyone who loves the genre who doesn't love the game. Most think it's the best game ever of it.
    That's successful delivery.
    There are plenty of genres of games I don't buy regardless of reviews cos I know I'll think its crap no matter how good fans of the genre think it is. I think all COD games (and FPS games of that style) are bank, for example.

    I'm into the epilogue now. Still loving it all.
    Still walking everywhere (unless in a firefight), almost never galloping when I'm on a horse. Greeting everyone I pass, stopping to investigate whenever a random event appears at the roadside. It's so great 😄 
     
    Also @maxjam I agree about Rogue One. As far as I'm concerned my head-canon for Star Wars is the Original Trilogy, Rogue One and now The Mandalorian. As well as BioWare's Old Republic games, of course. 😛 
    I installed the new Star Wars game over the weekend, the genre really isn't for me. I'll probably stick it on Story difficulty and blast through it in a few hours. I hate platformers; and 3rd person action melee games - so not a great game design for me!
