Certain things Armstrong did spoke for themselves. Many posters agreed. I called it like it was. It's wasnt undermining him. I also give him plenty of credit when it's due. So unlucky, try again. 

I must have missed all that positivity you were showing. I must have been serving my underserved ban at that point 🤣

Whether we are positive or not on this MB bears no relationship to how we perform on the pitch though. 

We could be as positive as humanly possible but the team would still be what it is.

Just a reminder about perspective!

No. Danny Fucking-Murphy

He’s probably fed up of being sent to Middlesbrough every week.

Branthwaite is the sort of 'back to reality' signing we're used to here after talk about Whiteman and Pickering (Christ, players from Crewe and Doncaster are now out of our reach).  Short term ch

Relieved to hear your absence was due to a ban and not summat like Covid.

You keep the place lively.

Thanks man. No, all clear on the covid, touch wood. Hopefully we don't have too long a road ahead of us on that front.

So Mowbray says that we haven't bid for Pickering ?

"He said: “I don’t know about that to be honest.

“We’ve got two left backs, I’m not sure where that came from.

“We’ve got Barry Douglas, we’ve got Amari’i Bell, it would seem mad to me to sign a left back when you haven’t got any centre halves.”

Very strange comment when it's been confirmed from Crewe that we had made a bid.

Might suggest one of the following options

1 Crewe are telling porkies

2 Mowbray can't remember what bids he has made

Or 3 someone else is making the bid on rovers behalf and not told Mowbray

Yeah I read that earlier and thought wtf is he on about here, unless of course Crewe made it up to try and raise interest from other clubs and subsequent funds (unlikely). If he's said it purely to appease Bell and Douglas and make them feel 'wanted' then its a bit ridiculous.

Very strange. He's denying all knowledge, not something I eve remember him doing before. It's eithet that he doesn't want Douglas to know he was going to get fired off back to Leeds if the Pickering deal had gone through, or someone else is buying young players with potential for the 'project'.

Or Mowbray is just delusional

He’s not denying all knowledge. He’s being selective with the truth, presumably to not reveal why we tried to sign a LB when we already have two on the books.

'I don't know about that' would indicate he's denying all knowledge. I agree though this may be a case of a deal falling through, Crewe telling everyone and Mowbray going into damage-limitation mode.

But anyone who has seen the performances will know and understand why he would try to sign a left back. Even the two players in question who are trying to play in that position

I see it as one of two ways:-

i.        WE haven't made an offical bid and Crewe are trying to get a bidding war hoping any other club to make a bid. Barry Fry used Rovers several times in the Uncle Jack days to try to sell players  by announcing weve bid for players.

or 

ii.     We have bid and been rejected so Mowbray is denying were interested as not to upset our existing players and he does not rock the boat.

Mowbray won't bring in another left back, we already have 2 and he's too nice a guy to upset anyone. 

Such an admission of bad transfer practices if he has to get another left back. Won't happen.
