Strange signing if he doesn’t come straight in considering the money could have been used to reinforce the area of the pitch we actually need strengthening.

You could have said that about Bruno in January and Howe judged that spot on.

 

It's hardly much of an issue. Botman will be our number 1 defender in the next few years at least.

 

Of course some will cry like bairns when they don't get what they want.

Personally wasn't expecting us to go after a CB, wouldn't have been unhappy going into the season with Burn and Schar. However after watching him so far, regardless of it being pre season, he looks a big upgrade on what we have and possibly essential to the way we now aim to play?

I think Bruno was eased in because he was joining a team that was gaining momentum and players who were not previously performing, were coming alive and getting really good pitch time. 

 

With Botman he's had his entire preseason with us, so I imagine he should be ready to roll. I expect him to start, he's the marquee defender we've wanted for ages and he should start IMO.

With not having strengthened up top yet we may need his incisive passes from the back even more.

 

Never mind that, we may need to get him to pass it into the opposition net.

He will have to bide his time a little, I suspect Eddie Howe didn’t want some of the more competitive clubs to be able to scout us with him in the strongest side as he will make a difference.

Was lucky enough to be in corporate hospitality today and was sat next to Botman’s dad all game. His whole family, mum, dad, brothers, sisters and grandma all came across. Absolutely lovely family. So proud of their lad.

 

When the flag display was in full flow pre kick-off, Botman’s dad turned to me and said “I think he made the right choice!” 😍

Aww man, that's lush.

 

I think Wor Flags need an orange flag for Sven. I'll tag @Heronin this, you never know what might happen.

How many games was it before Bruno got a start? Four?

Felt like longer. I know we went on a long run and he wasn't in the team at the start of it.

Howe won't change a winning team without good reason, ie injuries or suspensions. We saw that with Bruno. We'll not see Botman start next match either.

Got a league cup game in two and a half weeks. Ideal for his first start unless Howe fancies switching formation against Man City?

They saw him make his debut and play 3 mins and at least kick the ball! Nah the atmosphere and win, perfect stuff for them to see.
