  1. Made up with what? Words means fuck all until we actually get some players through the door.. I’m looking forward too seeing who we bring in but come on now Paul stop trying too piss people off.

  3. Halves reversed on the back means the shirt is in quarters. It should ALWAYS be like this because that is our traditional shirt. There was only one season (16/17?) when we had true halved shirts when the "halves" were not reversed on the back, this being allowed by our stupid, naive owners.

  5. Standard stuff from Mowbray really. As ever the proof will be in the pudding and I'll try to reserve judgement and not pay too much attention to the publicity. I do get sick and fed up of Sky, Radio Lancashire and Telegraph scuttling along to the Eid in the park event and trying to get a story out of him regarding Dack. Maybe to be expected from Sky in their Premier League obsessed world but it is disappointing to see from the local media. Gives them something to do I suppose but I don't think it is being done in Rovers interests and appears to be completely baseless at this point.

  9. Yeah I love the old stuff. “On a pitch barely fit for play rovers take one hell of a beating”. Also like not one of 55,000 home fans thought they would lose. Funny they thought the same in 2002

  10. This has to be a joke. Dack is not an international footballer - it's doubtful he's even good or fit enough to play in the Premier League

  12. I agree, Dack could really benefit from sorting himself out physically and becoming more consistent in his performances.

  13. A Championship modern era Dunn is as good a comparison as you can get I think. Not on his level but similar enigma with the same build, refuelling, ego and bird issues it seems. Dunny at least climbed to the top before he fell off his pedestal this lad will never get there unless he puts the graft in.

  14. Why do we keep going in circles around this. Of course we play in halves, but at one time the halves were always reversed at the back, ergo they were described as quarters.

  15. He'll do one more year, and next summer he'll go. He's well within his rights to go next year too for me, he deserves the opportunity. The type of player than the English national side is begging for. Nobody in England's midfield takes the ball on the half turn like Dacky does.

  26. Kompany and Zabaleta were both signed for £6m (ish) within weeks of Hughes leaving Rovers for City. They were Hughes' top targets for us that summer and the wheels were in motion on both. Hence why it was such a quick double signing at City. Imagine if City had waited a few more weeks and we signed both of them in 2008 instead of Grella, Andrews and Simpson. They can join the fantasy 11 players we almost had along with Keane, Zidane, Dugarry and Lewandowski.

  28. Why are you on here clearly to wind people up? It is just standard, vague transfer talk which somehow youve interpreted as Mowbray being "absolutely buzzing" and your primary objective is to try to prove/manipulate that others would be anything but happy if we had a healthy budget and the manager was "buzzing."

  31. I was there for the 7-1 caning of a pretty good Notts Forest side, that was probably the nearest we've come to that Spurs game. Having said that Spurs then were the equivalent of City or Liverpool today. It was one of those days when that team clicked and when they did they were a goal scoring machine.

  34. Sambou another one though, playing in the same league as Joe Nuttall and Dan Butterworth. Besides the odd one or two, we have absolutely no need to be loaning players from teams that we play in the Under 23's league, where we beat teams like Liverpool, City and Spurs. Bunch of talk at a few Championship teams about Man City's Felix Nmecha, who honestly looked about as good as as Chris Taylor when they played our lot at Ewood. We shouldn't spend a dime on Prem loans (unless it's for players with plenty of first team experience like Reed/Gallagher)

  39. A few problems with that plan though. First off Mowbray might not be manager next summer if performance isn't acceptable this season. If he is here then he'll be preparing for his 4th full season which is above the usual lifespan of a Championship manager yet his scouting network will only just be delivering results. What if his successor wants to do it differently? Then it hinges on Venkys reinvesting all the proceeds of a hypothetical Dack sale which I think is unlikely given past behaviour. Then it comes down to our scouting doing what the other 23 Championship clubs aren't alread

  41. Players are wanting more than we can afford when we enquire about them is now making its predictable appearance along with the no shit Sherlock if you want to sign good players early you pay top dollar and get good players.!!!! I did mention now was a really good time to make room on the wage bill so that a bit more might be chucked at a decent signing instead of carrying players who'll contribute very little if anything. We'll sign some young ones who'll bubble along underneath and break into the side also. Goal posts are moving away from the ready made champ players it looks l

  45. The fact you’re so personally affronted by my opinion says more about you than it does me. I haven’t called any one person out. If you can justify not going to the match then that’s fine by me. ?? Moreover, I don’t need to justify myself to any of you. I don’t constantly ask for justification on all the ridiculously emotional rants on here. This is about opinions.

  46. Mowbray’s team work harder than any since 94-95?! Whaaaat? Hughes and Allardyce say hello! The amount of times we downed tools last year was galling.

  47. Utter nonsense. Underlined by your last sentence. You really think Mowbray has his team working harder than Hughes did his? You are either painted into a corner with your original comment or you are too young to remember Sparky’s side. Most players in the current side wouldn’t get on Hughes’ bench from a work rate perspective. Four teams conceded fewer goals than Rovers last season. Three of them were relegated. We also had one of our worst ever winless runs. Highest work rate since 94/95 would get you a few nil-nils to steady the ship. (The fact that you picked that season for
