Re: BFC TRANSFER NEWS Jan 2020(MUST CONTAIN LINK)

Did the Chaiman saying we bid £20m for a player over the summer "tickle" SD ? SD often spins the media and us fans some tales, often jesting too. I'd take absolutely nothing he says in press conferences ( especially regarding transfers ) seriously. He doesnt speak about players open and honestly un...

No, it was definitely you who said that Dyche isn't a brave manager.
You quoted someone saying they thought SD was a "coward" I didnt say that, so you've either made something up or quoted the wrong person.
