Re: Who is Burnley’s most technical player

Barnes is the most gifted striker of a ball, we don't have any truly technically gifted players, Defour was the last. You need to be able to always receive the ball in tight spaces, and be able to find those passes that no-one else sees, like De-Bruyne.

Unless in a crap area house prices have gone crazily upwards - it's expected to re-adjust back downwards next year. Just stick a sign out front and it'll sell in no time - no need for agents.

A lot of people who bought new builds are finding it’s the opposite though, value on houses have gone down and now they’re stuck trying to claw back what they lie for it 5/10 years ago.
New builds are like new cars, overpriced, and lose 20% of their value as soon as they're not new.
