‘Premier League Club’ make a 5m offer for Dolan. Do you accept it?

Back when £5m meant something, yes.

In the modern 'Monopoly money' game, no.

I'm not as high on him as many on here are, but I'd rather watch him in Rovers colours than bank an insignificant amount of money.

We'll sell him for £1m with a 3% sell-on.

He needs a new contract tonight. 4 years.

Chapman must be feeling a bit sick. 

Why would Chapman be feeling sick?

The door is clearly open for him to seriously contribute in this team. It's up to him to walk through it.

No. I'd have to think twice if it was double that. Could easily be going for more than that by January if he keeps it up though. Given how young he is I'd prefer to keep him for a few years, let the market prices get even dumber, and sell for even more having had good use out of him.

There's always the chance we have already seen his best and he will peter off, but it seems hard to envision him not growing into a very good player. I haven't been this excited about a breakthrough young attacker since Duff. Just a shame we didn't raise this one.

Got to say, I'm astounded I'm talking like this about an 18 year old we just picked up on a free who has two starts for us, but it's hard not to see him as the real deal right now. Time will tell as ever, but if nothing else his footwork is absolutely out of the top drawer.

"The manager doesn't know that" was Tony Mowbray's response to the Ryan Manning question. TM confirmed he likes the player but suggests #Rovers wouldn't have the level of finance to make that a possibility.

Seems that 2 and 2 made 5 in the way this Manning rumour has snowballed.

That’s a shame if so...wonder who the LB is that the lads reckon we’ve signed then?

That's a real shame. Hope we do have someone good on the way at LB though, we need it.

Can't see TM answering the question like that if we had a bit accepted by them or even close.

Might be a case of de ja vu to when we was told the other week that a signing had been made and an announcement was imminent. Hopefully there is a deal close though and it is someone else.

The Manning interest was typical transfer window fare. Someone made the suggestion on a forum that we should sign him, it snowballs, the local journalist mentions him in terms of historical interest but no indication that he is who we have bid for, an "ITK" frenzy of people claiming he has signed, our fans even mocking QPR fans over the supposed fact, and it all turns out to be totally unfabricated. Why the transfer window has become an absolute ball ache!

Unless he doesn't want to alert other suitors - but then again, other suitors now know he is still available anyway.
