I was just saying to my mate at the Chelsea game that the player Joelinton reminds me of a little is Vuckic. Not an out and out centre forward, but seemingly just too big and not quite mobile enough to be a winger. Possibly a 10, but you don't get many big number 10's

Cracking strike though.

He was probably the best player at the club in small sided training games. Just had no real position and terrible luck with injury.

I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

He's been a great signing for Rovers, said at the time that it was stupid for us to let him go permanently instead of on loan, could have been a decent Perez replacement

Agree, i'd say the same about Toney as well. I know this looks like hindsight but said when we let him go it was a mistake as he had good loans before we released him.
I guess we'll find out how he'll do in the prem if/when Bournemouth sign him (linked heavily with him) if they survive.
Rafa dropped a bollock with these two and Mbabu as far as i'm concerned.

I mean there's so many great in championship but not PL league level strikers, my default is to always assume that's the case

Our mistake with Armstrong was loaning him out when we were in the Championship. We sent him to 2 direct teams in 2 years where he gained nothing. If we just used him in the Championship instead of Atsu/Diame he may have grown and been a PL player a lot earlier.

Yeah the championship was the perfect time to give him a decent chance.

Sold them both for a pittance as well. And the odds of us having a buyback clause is roughly nil
