There's a rather famous American racing driver of the sixties called Bob Bondurant. He won Le Mans, drove for Shelby, Ferrari, Lotus amongst others. Had a horrific crash in a McLaren.

Anyway. The Americans pronounce his name "Baab Baanderaan' and I'm unable to think of our new signing without calling him "Baaaan Jaanduraan" in my head.

It's starting to really get on my tits.

You live in a lovely county, but it might be an idea to find something to do, Rodders.

Terrible idea. Might catch on, and then where would I be?

You'd still be landlocked.

This is an fact.

I believe that the same is also true of B6 though, which is full of people who have things to do.

Apart from our scouting team apparently. Fnaar.

Praying this kid comes on quickly and really helps us in the second half. We shouldn’t be putting this much pressure on him, but he’s going to have to step up. And usually takes MLS players a little time to adjust. Hopefully he is more Almiron than Simon Dawkins.

I don't think we've put any pressure on him at all.  If Watkins gets injured, maybe but even then the rest of the forward line have to chip in with goals as well.

Archer's been loaned out, which is part of the problem. Do at least try to base your arguments on the facts.

There is a rest of the forward line?

Techincally Brum is not landlocked thanks to the annexed warm water port of Weston Super Mare.

That is of course true.

And I am bounded on three sides by water. Let's just call it a moat?

There's no need to be snarky really is there?

I'd agree in principle but my brother reports a disproportionately high number of noses around Malvern (true Brummies). Can't be arsed with them or the necessary hazmat protection. Can we divert around the M50?

This is Almiron's fifth season in the premier league, and it's the first season he's scored more than four league goals.  I hope to God he adapts a bit quicker than him.
