The point I was making CT (not aimed at you btw) was the fickle nature of some fans (whodathunkit). Danny Ings throws a strop at not getting his move and is widely judged as being a great player for BFC. Tarkowski refused to train, as I recall, to agitate for his move to Burnley.

Re: Time to offload JBG

The only player who needs to be shown the door at the moment is Mr Gibson.

JBG just needs time to play his way into form, which he has done a few times before. Brady is a different issue, however, who needs games in his correct position. He certainly doesn't fit on the right.

I genuinely believe that Tarks would easily fit in alongside VVD, Laporte or Maguire to sure up their defences. Given he would count towards their homegrown quota too, it's surprising that they're not looking more seriously at him as an option. If we could swap for any of Joe Gomez, Otamendi, Stones...

Many of the flavoured Jack Daniels (like the honey) are actually liqueurs. If you want a decent JD Bourbon, it’s good to try the single barrel.

Alternatively for a decent bourbon, go for bullet bourbon, makers mark or Woodford Reserve, which won’t break the bank.
