Not going to like the sight of him in a Burnley shirt but good move for him.

Burnley bid accepted by Arsenal.

Kompany clearly a fan

The potential centre half pairing of Ekpiteta and Ballard would, BY FAR, be the best in The Championship. It's a pity he signed for the Clampetts, but I don't think we've seen the last of Ballard in a Blackpool shirt. Give it two or three seasons.

Thought he wanted to stay south for family reasons.
Bit of an AVFTT myth that one, after he signed for Millwall people said along the lines of yeh that makes sense moves a bit closer to home and a full season on loan, PL clubs like to vary where their players go on loan.

We must have 2 million 🤷🥴
I imagine that is 50% of our transfer budget there or there abouts on one player, when we need about 4/5 before you factor outgoings (which hopefully pay for themselves), you then have to pay him roughly 20k per week, miles away for us at this time

I doubt that very much. He would have to be a failure at Burnley to stand a chance of us getting him.

Is £2 million confirmed or just a guessing game?
Would have been a nice addition but let’s not forget we have Marv, Keogh and young Casey (time he stepped up this season) plus a couple of part time centre half’s Husband and Thornley along with any possible loans so not sure we needed or wanted him, time will tell, remember he did Ok last season nothing more.

Big fan of Ballard when he was here and would love him back but I would say this is bargain basement shopping
for Burnley, shows they will be cutting their cloth accordingly.

I just don't understand why everyone thinks we need Ballard. Yes he's a very good player but CB is not a priority position for us at the present time. £2m when we need players in other areas? Definitely not.

I'm backing Doug and Casey to come through coached on by Blakey and Hubby. We already have four centre halves, no need to be so fixated on ex employees. I mean, you wouldn't have Quitchley back would you?
