I described Klich as the Thomas Muller of the Championship based on his first half of last season and a passing resemblance. I think he would be a good addition.

Can’t see the issue with helping David Jones out. Think it’s a nice touch by the club and Dyche. He was a good servant, always appreciative of the fans and a good bloke. Maybe he’s a future coach in the making. Boden tweeted: Again explains David Jones is training with the club as a favour to "...

They do have every right. Believe Flood & Fletcher tried to bully them a bit a few years ago. If we were to replace the cricket field stand on the same footprint we would have to put turnstiles at the back of it which would mean a smaller stand in terms of depth. Maybe that's a price worth payi...
