Benched for todays game v Leeds. 

Came on as sub and did OK. 

A Southampton win without him in the starting line up could mean more time sat down. 

Didn't come on, so not sure how you can surmise that he did okay

Not surprised he’s struggling in the prem. The year he was getting all out goals we were dominating games possession/chances wise. He was never a one chance grab a goal kind guy. Summed up in the game against United early in season where he was through on goal late on for the win and didn’t finish it.

Think he’s corrected himself in the post above yours!

Always thought he would struggle - got off to a flyer with that goal but he doesn't have enough about him for that level. Pace, sure, but no tricks of note, head down kind of player, and needs a quite few chances normally. 

As for Raya, one of best keepers in PL right now.

A few on here said before Armstrong left that he wasn’t PL standard. Their views have been totally vindicated. The start of the slippery slope into oblivion maybe. 
As for Raya, well that says much about Mogadon’s talent as a manager or a talent spotter. Good luck to the lad, how I would love for him to represent Spain.

Another Jordan Rhodes.

I wouldn't write off Armstrong. He has pace and positional intelligence and a powerful strike, which are all important attributes. I seem to remember that he struggled at times with Rovers, especially, when starting out in a wide role in our team. Borja is an exceptional talent, so I suspect Armstrong might have to sit it out for a while, if they go with one forward but he'll be in the goals eventually, I guess. And, the homecoming to Newcastle might eventually happen, if he does start scoring.

I'd agree with most of that - but I reckon Newcastle will be looking at better players than Armstrong now they're loaded.

He can't finish consistently enough though and his all round contribution is poor. He will end up back at a top Championship club, that's his level.

Arma is going to notch on Saturday for sure. Hopefully a 96th minute winner. 

I will raise a glass of Claret to him on Saturday night, if he does.

Not enough about him to be a success.  He will flop and in Jordan Rhodes fashion disappear i to a life of being shipped club to club.  Adding his name to the long list of grass is greener ex-Rovers players, fortunately for him he will be rich enough to not have to worry much about it.

I am not sure that staying at a mid table (likely bottom half) Championship side would have been a wiser choice. The grass is greener at Southampton.
