Didn't know Kinder was a Rovers fan. He's still got the passion for the club.

Worth a listen. 

@JoeH you might want to listen to the answer he gives about the U23's at Man Utd and players like Rashford in particular. I'm glad Eric agrees with me ?

Eric was and still is a Blackburn boy. I was at school with him in the 1970’s, he was also a very good cricketer. My memory is fading but I’m sure he played for Cherry Tree for many years.

Rovers in full control won 2-1. Liverpool manager says it was the worst performance of the season so we must have done something well Gave away a sloppy goal 10 min before the end. Keeper came flappin

Chaddy, it is impossible to defend the kick-off time for the Burnley game.  It's another kick in the teeth for supporters.  I can attend but friends who work can't attend.  If I had been working I wou

Excellent performance by the Under-21's last night at St. George's Park - and what an outstanding venue that is.   We really ought to have won by more than one and controlled the game for long pe

He mentioned going to school with JohnGo in the podcast? ;)

I see the U23s and some senior players (Gally, Mulgrew) drew 2-2 with Huddersfield B in a friendly. I thought it was interesting from the article that Gally, even stepping down a level, was played on the right of a front three with Burns leading the line instead. It looks worryingly like this really is still TM's plan for Gallagher. Hope the new system suits it a bit better but I'm not expecting much.

Spanish 3rd tier.

Scanning the LT, my take is that we have secured the Greek youngster provided the medical and paperwork haven't thrown up problems.

Yes Mols has gone to the third level in Spain but CF Intercity are a two year old club with money behind them who are flying through the leagues with annual promotions

Aleesami sounds highly probable.

Mulgrew to Fleetwood is still a big ?

No current sign of bids coming in for any other Rovers players

Noticed some talk about Willem Tomlinson a few pages back on this thread.

He’s turning out for Padiham tonight against Squires Gate. 

He has at least one first team appearance for Rovers on his CV which, I suppose, is something.

It's more the 4th tier isn't it? Although described as the third tier, if you get promoted you go to Segunda Division B, and you need to get promoted from that to reach Segunda Division, then from that to reach La Liga. That's what I gathered from my quick check. LT described it as 4th tier too.

Sharpe originally had it as 3rd tier.

Strange one Tomlinson, has he had some problems in the past?

My only two memories of him are scoring a long ranger In a pre season friendly, and coming on at Peteborough away and playing really well.

Got into some strife while playing for Mansfield and was sacked.

Didn't he come on as a sub at Ewood and play well? Why do I think that game was v Man Utd? Was it a cup or a friendly?

Got it!  19/02/2017  FA Cup 5th round Rovers 1 Man Utd 2. Tomlinson played.

Really? That's moronic.

He should be the backup #9.

England Under 21s achieved a creditable 3-3 draw this evening

away to the might of the

Andorra Under 21s

Huge problem in my opinion with the England national youth set up. There’s this self-inflicting policy of “keeping the group together” whereby talents (especially in the EFL) who are progressing through don’t get chances to shine in the U19’s or the U21’s. We end up with a 21’s team full of Arsenal players.

The likes of Jude Bellingham have to wait for big money moves before they’re even considered, and people like Tyrhys Dolan can’t get a sniff for the Under 19’s, who boasted a team with about three first team apps between them. He’d have been the best player on the pitch.

Isn't Tyrhys Northern Irish?
