  1. The best bit of transfer business we could do in Jan would be to sell Mowbray and replace him with Bilic.

  2. And yet it's amazing how often labour / starmer get criticised for being "captain hindsight". Whether you agree with what's being done or not there is a clear pattern over the last few months of 1. Labour calling for something 2. Tories condemning it as awful and an attack on our freedoms, not supporting the country and our NHS 3. A few days later, boris introduces what labour called for in some form. Yet labour are hit with the hindsight tag.

  4. But it's as simple fact, they voted for this clusterfuck - They need to own it - If by some miracle it turns out not to be a total disaster then they are welcome to crow about it, but until then - You won, get over it........

  6. I think if Gallagher was played through the middle over a season he would get you 10-12 goals. He has the attributes in my opinion to play either as a lone striker or in a front two but he has has no real attributes to be a wide right player and even less to be a wide left player. I could understand playing him wide slightly if we played a lot of long Crossfield diagonal balls but we hardly play any long balls let alone diagonal ones. Just looking back at those goals shows you that if you get him in the box and central to the goal then he is a threat. His goals this season against Coventr

  8. Anyone with an ounce of insight could have seen this coming. What’s incredible is not only that so many voted for Johnson in the first place, but that most of those who did, would do it again next week if there were another election. If the pandemic has taught us anything on both sides of the Atlantic is that government matters. Having a TV reality show host in the US and a failed newspaper columnist in charge in the UK has had cataclysmic consequences.

  10. It's going to be an incredible piece of political sleight of hand to blame the remain vote for a failed brexit deal. I don't think it will work, although I am sure Johnson, the Mail, the Express etc will try. Since Johnson won the election a year ago, no barriers of any sort have been put in his way. That the negotiations haven't worked out is simply playing out of the fundamental dynamic that you can't have the benefits of being in the EU without the costs. If you want to exit the costs you also exit the benefits. That the EU wants ongoing alignment of standards for tariff free trade is

  11. "Brexiteer" is as insulting as "Remainer" ie not at all - Remoaner on the other hand is deliberately insulting with it's moaning connotations The leavers need to accept this is their mess and no-one else’s - To claim Remainer politicians didn't want to leave, is farcical - The only politicians with any clout in this game initially, was May and the Tories - She may have been a remainer, but her "Red Lines" made it plain she wanted to leave, her problem was the shred of integrity she had couldn't square the red lines and the Good Friday agreement - She was constantly blocked by the

  12. Vacuous again. Amazing though isn’t it. The government commission an independent body - along with many other organisations who do the same and they all come to the same conclusion. We will all be worse off. yet when shown that evidence you argue they can’t read into the future. Then you tell us we’ll be better off in 30/50 years time without a clue how that’s going to happen. Pathetic Chaddy.

  17. The issue is - not that certain posters will ever acknowledge it - they clearly knew about it when they ridiculing Starmer the other week, they clearly knew the implications for Christmas well before Saturday. And yet they wait till then to tell people. Of course for some the government can do no wrong and this will be conveniently ignored. For balance I wouldn't expect them to know immediately and I have been impressed by what I have seen of our vaccination efforts - including Mrs Blue Blood. However their Christmas decisions seem really poor and late even factoring investigation time i

  19. It looks like a new strain was identified and tracked back in September by our virologists and a lot of information has already been gathered on it and release to the WHO (who confirmed they knew of it already long before Saturdays 'announcements'"). Ultimately its still the same virus as we've always had. I'd say it's a pretty good effort from the UK here, world-leading if not world-beating. Not sure why people would demand an 'apology', and why the UK's response here is being compared to a country that covered up the same core virus from the rest of the world in the first place w

  22. Definitely cuts both ways "remoaners" "libtard remainers" (not on here mind) but both sides are perfectly capable of name calling. The "shame" aspect comes from the circles you mix in. I've been in situations surrounded by people talking about brexit who were all quite clearly leavers, not knowing these people that well it was easier to just keep quiet and nod along. I'd say if you felt actual shame about the way you voted that should kind of tell you something shouldnt it? But I do agree that certain attitutdes towards certain political viewpoints encourage those viewpoints. You d

  27. Appreciate the posts on the matter. You might just be very good at sounding like you know what you are going on about but it certainly comes across that you do! Please do keep us updated about the 'mutation'. It is an alarming word to hear but it may not be as terrible as it sounds. Is it possible that if can only affect the contagiousness of the virus and not the effects it causes, ie makes it more lethal?

  28. I was just sat having a brew and sausage sandwich and my wife informed me that tomorrow is the third anniversary of her dad passing away aged 92. He was a 'hybrid' football supporter, following both Rovers and The Dingles when they were at home on alternate weeks from just before the outbreak of WW2 to his last full season in 1975. He claims he was probably the only person inside Turf Moor in 1960 to cheer all six goals as Rovers clawed back a 3 goal deficit in the last 15 minutes to earn a replay at Ewood which we won of course. He went to odd games afterwards with us, most notably at Goodiso

  29. If we are on a journey, I would love to know what the plan is when our best player, Harvey Elliott, goes back to his club at the end of the season. I’d love to know what the plan is for when our best defender, Ryan Nyambe, leaves on a free. I’d love to know what happens when a PL club takes a gamble on Armstrong. Or Dacks 18 month contract runs out. We have the best team we are going to have for a long while right now. If we don’t finish top 6 this season it’s a travesty, we are 18 months away from a full rebuild.

  31. On the “laddishness” of the podcast... I listen to/watch them all and there was something different about this one... They are usually guys pushing 40 or above, played at a lower level, who are a bit more worldly wise, been through some trouble and are now happy within themselves. But some of the stuff that Marshall was coming out with seemed to be taking the hosts aback... He’s only 29 and a far better, far more recent player than most that they get on - for him to be talking so candidly about how he has pissed it all away with no regrets was a bit jarring. The p

  32. I don't have much experience in epidemiology, so I can't say when or how long it would take to say that this mutation deserves extra attention and policies to contain it. It's a very important decision to take as dozens/hundreds!? of mutations have been detected workwide, but the vast majority have very little effect. They still aren't 100% confident about the 70% increase in infectivity, although its looking more likely by the day. From the lab side of things, it does take quite a while to analyse different mutations. If you have all the paperwork completed to work with new strains and t

  33. Lazy argument. Bilic, Pearson. There's 2. Pay them enough, they will come. One of the owners main problems has been that whilst they don't seem to mind their money being wasted on most things, they have never really with the possible exception of Lambert invested heavily in probably the most important man at the Club, the manager. Hence the reason we're now stuck in permanent no-man's land (at best) with Gary Bowyer Mark 2.

  42. So you keep saying, but whenever you’re asked how that’s going to happen you haven’t got a clue. Its also very telling that you brexiteers got it totally wrong from the beginning. You always argued that we would be better off from day 1. Any suggestion of delays, job losses etc was always project fear. None of you, absolutely none of you said it would take many years for us to see the benefits. You’re shifting your position because it’s staring you right in the face now. The consequences are becoming very real.

  43. Tony Mowbray was a player of a decent standard and has been a coach, assistant and manager at a high level. The comparison of experience for experience sake is just silly. I’m quite sure the original reference was in respect to being a highly respected manager for several years. Using Kean, should be saved for idioms or metaphors for dodgy or crooked behaviour in my opinion. The two men (never mind management ability) are diametrically opposed, in any way you can think, results, decisions, tactics, motivating, experience, personality, culpability, honesty etc Im not ashame

  44. This is the key bit for me. You can forgive a government making mistakes at the beginning to some extent but to make the same mistakes over and over again shows an unfitness for office. I would have said the same if a Labour PM had been this bad. A PM for the good times is Johnson.

  48. The Mowbray brigade on Facebook and Twitter shoot down every single suggestion on those forums, I kid you not, with a million and one reasons as to why we shouldn’t go for them, or they wouldn’t come to little old Rovers. One lad yesterday on Twitter responsed to the suggestion of Howe: ‘not for me, didn’t do well enough with that Bournemouth squad.’ Let’s forget that he took them from the 4th tier to the Premier League and kept them there for 4 seasons then. Honestly, what’s the point in even trying to reason with people like that.
