It did cross our minds that we might have had a transfer fee to come in for him. He’s going nowhere now. Personally I would not be looking to go in for a Dack replacement. I think we have enough. As @chaddyrovers said earlier we need a new gk, lb and cb.

I’d go for their left back - Robinson? - don’t know much about him but he was the best player on the pitch. Is he young?

Fair point Chaddy , think JB summed it up well on twitter  Link   Imagine the negotiations between Venkys and Levy. Insane. Levy: We will give you 10m. 2m upfront, 8m when we win the le

The last deal he signed was ridiculous from the clubs point of view. Nothing in there to protect us given the length of the deal. We really need to tie him down to a 4 year deal. Allow a release

Fair enough, if you've got a problem with his off the field antics and the celebrity nature of his girlfriend, I think a lot of people are re-writing history about Dack here. Barring a couple of

What a player that lad is. Had nyambe in his pocket all game and gave him nothing . One to keep an eye on

Wasn’t implying dack would be sold although the plan was to sell him in the summer I believe, an agreement he had with rovers management for a shot at the prem, that’s now in doubt. People can say holtby and rothwell but do either look like hitting the net consistently. Dack was almost a striker , I wouldn’t class either of them two as

Never thought you were tbh mate. 

Yes but until either play there we wont know but also it does allow us to go 4-4-2 maybe using Armstrong with Graham or Gallagher.

Apparently this is the suspected injury which if true is 6-8 weeks.

Cheers kamy. Either way it’s bad news and it’ll take longer to get back to speed. Above all else for what he’s done for Rovers I hope and go to bed with my fingers crossed for the lad tonight.

Thanks Kamy. So around 10 weeks out. 6-8 weeks injury and couple of weeks working back up to fitness

If its as bad as expected we definitely need a new goalscorer as a priority. As much as we need a centre back that is for competition. Without Dack we lack goals.

No. We already have enough. 

Play Holtby there or go 4-4-2 with Bennett and Rothwell wide with Graham or Gallagher or Armstrong up front as a pair. 

More than enough options within the team to cover this.

Gallagher and Brereton are not going to get enough goals to cover Dack.  Rothwell doesn't score and Armstrong blows hot and cold.  Graham doesn't work as well with the others as he does with Dack.  For me, a Dack replacement should be the number one priority in this window.

We have to disagree Parsonblue. If Dack is only to be out for 8 weeks I wouldnt replace him. 

I would play Holtby in the 10 role playing off Gallagher for Birmingham game. Armstrong and Rothwell wide.

For me, we need a keeper, left back and centre back in this window.

Dack hasn't been playing astoundingly well but has still been chipping in with plenty of goals.Not sure we could replace him without spending Premier League type money and I'd be looking at Holtby and Rothwell to step up and fill the void between them.

I'd be more worried about the situation up front. Graham imo has completely gone and Rothwell and Brereton still have it all to prove.

Wouldn't disagree with Chaddy about needing a keeper CB and LB as well though. Thought William's was dreadful last night.

Worst player for us to have injured. i would certainly take the 6-8 weeks though compared to the rest of the season. 

We do have Holtby but he is more creator than goalscorer so we would have to rely on others around him to up their game, ie Arma, Rothwell or whoever else plays either side of him. it is either that or going two up top or somehow finding a replacement (perhaps even a loan).

I think Holtby might surprise us in the next few weeks. Yes, dacky is going to be a huge miss but Holtby has real quality, which for me he shows every time he plays. He also has more goals & assists than Rothwell this season in fewer appearances.

I think we might be pleasantly surprised. Would love to see Dack & holtby together again like the hudds match

Just home now. Quick question. Was that a standard performance by Armstrong. 

Thought he Was absolutely shocking In every aspect of his play

 

 

Fairly standard although that was poorer than most. Usually offers flashes here and there and is capable of grabbing a goal.

He, like us as a team seems to struggle against teams looking to defend and counter. His pace is best utilized with us being the fast counterattacking team rather than the other way around.

He simply cannot play against teams like that. Should just save him for away games or at home against teams who come to have a go.

I honestly don't know how anybody can speculate how long Dack will be out unless they have seen the scans. Knee injuries can be hard to diagnose and the only definitive diagnosis is through a scan. This should happen over the next couple of days providing there is not too much swelling.

Pure speculation.

See what comes out of the club in the next few days.

We have proved we can play without him like at Bristol, but whether we can do that on a consistent basis I'm not sure.

“Apparently”, “suspected”, “if true”.

Yeah, I’d say Kamy has gone for speculation.

I would imagine a knee specialist has had a good feel around and tested the mobility of the joint by now and that Kamy has reliable inside information.

Of course a full scan is needed to see if there is hidden damage as well as the primary damage.
