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

So he got more points in February than Tony Mowbray did , manager material?

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

Rhodes left at a time our club had just left embargo, changed manager and he was being paid far more than anyone else in the club. The comparison ignores the context of the time.

I cannot see how we’d be “forced” to lose Dack in the same way.

In a brief conversation with a WBA fan this morning, he said any investment at their end in January is likely to be focussed on pacy centre forward attacking options to play off Austin, like the hull lad or Dwight Gayle.

Equally the noises coming out of Ewood have suggested ALL of our better players are likely to  move on if we aren’t promoted, notably our captain too.

So Perhaps in such a worrying time for our talisman - maybe simply reporting updates on his injury and not making up transfer rumours is a better use of his thread? Would’ve saved me a few text messages to Brum this morning anyway.

I think our better players are in for a rude awakening if they think they're better than Blackburn Rovers. 

There isn't one player in our side that I'd peg to play in the Prem.

How many do you need?

See the full quote - it’s a prediction on an assumption.

We should’ve got more by now for his investment, however I’d be more concerned if he’d had a decent run in the side and contributed nothing.

Dack hs an ACL tear. Operation in a week. Could be a year out. Disaster really. 

Just confirmed by mowbray 

You knew straight away it was at least a season ender.

Some players don't ever come back as the same player after a massive injury. ?
 

From a business point of view. There goes any profit until at least 2021.

Time for The Stingies to get their cash out. From a football point of view, it's happened before a transfer window... So no excuses about it ending our season will hold any weight.

Replacing Dack isnt that simple,unfortunately. 

It's not an excuse, but let's not forget what he brings to the team

Too damn right after the last couple of games witnessed.

Where are you going lads?.......

Wow. This is a straight-out, limbs-stretched wide knockout. An absolute knockout.

We have to gamble, we have to try and find the untested, unknown diamond in the rough in January and hope for a miracle to replace Dack. There is no alternative. No one - not one staff member, not one fan can believe the current team without Dack can challenge for promotion.

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

Don't know where you got your information from but it was sadly wrong as I suggested when you posted.  If it came from within the Rovers' medical department then, IMO, it's a real concern as I understand there is a big difference, and noticeable, between a torn MCL and a torn ACL.

This is a huge blow for both Dack and Rovers.

There are not many players who suffer this type of injury and don't suffer a drop in about a yard of pace - Shearer being a classic example.

Wish Dack all the best.  It's going to be a long and difficult road back.

We don't need a Dack as such. We really just need to change formation and our way of playing without Dack. Most importantly we need a goal scorer....as we currently have NONE. Which is absolutely shocking!

For all his goals Dack is yet another player that never seemed to be able to actually hit a ball. Also in some ways he actually seemed to slow the play down a bit at times.

Unfortunately we don't have a manager that is capable of changing things.

I've lost count of the times Armstrong has run down the wing with no support so has had to check back.

Years in we still don't actually have a way of playing. It's like we're still playing Champ Manager without looking at the instructions.

We're more jumbled up than this message.

I am quite certain Rothwell and Holtby could play the Dack role if Mowbray put them there and stopped faffing about with selections and formation.

Desperately bad news for Bradley and the club.

Here's hoping the operation will be a total success.

Don't be too harsh. Only a fool would think that the knee had been scanned and consulted upon the same night it happened. It was clearly hearsay.

 

 

 

...I'm not calling anyone a fool btw ?

Yet we’ll still win 4-1 every week without him, eh Merce?

Gutted for Dacky. Huge, huge loss.

I've been told that Boswell's info isn't accurate (as far as any deal agreed but perhaps interest) though he could always respond to me on Twitter and refute that. Do people think the club would have put him on the pitch if he was due to be sold? Also I like to think the players were upset afterwards because they feels he's vital to Rovers chances. Not because it's spoilt an opportunity to leave.

Its a bad injury too come back from and he's  not blessed  with lighten  pace to begin with . He will have to change the way he plays . I remember  Shearer  saying he had to change  his game after his injury . I think a good Stricker who knows the league like Billy Sharp and go too a 4,4,2 with a new left back and a quick right winger  and we wouldn't  be far off

Dack might regret not signing the contract that's been on the table for 6 months. Bad news for the club's finances too because if fit he'll just leave on a free in 18 months time.

 

...and I wouldn't be surprised if that's what happens. Wouldn't that be gratitude to Mowbray for helping him out with his self inflicted court issues.

Bigger picture here.  Dack was our golden goose.  Selling him to invest  or relying on selling him to make us FFP compliant.  No one else is worth anywhere near  in the squad. 

Not only do we lose a 15 goal a season contribution but it could well hamper our transfer spending over the next 12-18 months.  

We're not guaranteed to get the same player back after this injury either. 

So doom and gloom.
