  1. This is the exact same situation as last year when Mowbray went to India. He came back and acted like there was no money to invest and suddenly we paid 2.5 million for Armstrong and another ~7 million for Brereton. Just because he isnt saying anything doesnt mean we havent got anything to spare. Lets judge him by his actions in the market first.

  2. In January Mowbray said that money had been made available by the owners for him to use if he wanted but that he had chosen not to use it, instead continuing with what we had with a view to that cash being available at a later date when it was better to do business. He either said or strongly inferred that the money would be ring fenced for later use and not lost. Last summer he spoke of a multi season project being agreed and set in motion. He spoke of the owners wanting promotion but him slowing them down and selling them the gradual build model. He claimed money was available all summe

  3. In his leaving comments “I have met the most amazing people and enjoyed many highs and only some lows in my time here. “I would like to thank everyone at the club and the fans for the fantastic support they have shown me. “I wish you all the very best and hope to see Rovers back in the Premier League where they belong in the near future.” Very classy from him, it's just a shame everyone doesn't demonstrate the same class.

  4. Because we didn't play Rothwell and Travis for half the season and persisted with Mulgrew at CB.

  5. Do people really expect Mowbray to come back from India shouting 'loadsamoney'!! Do that and he's paying more on every deal...

  7. We didn't nearly end up in the play-offs. We were top 2 most of the season and finished 9 points ahead of 3rd. 9 points Stuart. That's not nearly ending up in the play-offs, sorry. Our squad was better, as was Sunderlands this season. The difference was our manager delivered and got the best out of them. Not sure what you mean by your last sentence

  9. Yep I might be wrong but I don't recall Hanley, Marshall etc coming out with stuff like that yet there are calls to bring them back like prodigal sons. Once the writing was on the wall some couldn't wait to get away, to hell with the fans and club. Class act on and off the pitch in his time Conway, great professional example to lower standard players.

  10. Selling Dack to bring in loans is the very definition of short termism and a lack of vision. It would only pay off if we immediately got promoted. If we didn't then we'd have lost our best player and biggest asset and have nothing to show for it with the loans off to their next club in the summer.

  11. Mings? Absolutely zero chance of that, he’s impressed there in his loan spell. No chance of him coming here or paying his wages. Keogh is an absolute donkey also.

  12. I cheered almost as loudly as if Rovers had scored and then went straight on Sunderland’s forum like a vulture. I obviously have issues.

  13. Sad to see him leave but time catches up with us all in the end. He was a crucial part of that nearly team under Bowyer, and did as much as the more vaunted Rhodes & Gestede to get us back up, without getting the plaudits externally that most of us fans recognised he deserved. Latterly he was obviously a true pro, giving his all on the occasions called upon and still showing glimpses of his outstanding crossing ability (albeit not consistently), whilst when not involved showed his maturity & strength as a team player to the younger ones, who surely could not have had a better role

  14. Would be upset and underwhelmed with Keogh, he's a mistake waiting to happen for me. Don't see him as a realistic target either. Not many players on those two teams I wouldn't want for the right price but hes one of them, Glen Whelan would be another I'd be worried would be a TM player. Upgrade on Smallwood, but such a dull, uninspiring player. Watching McGinn this season really makes you wonder what if. Shows the benefits of being proactive in June and not waiting till August when everyone is watching.

  15. Absolutely driving force for them. He gets everywhere. Not ready for championship but looking at Sunderland yesterday and Leadbitter he’d be a perfect foil if we could get him a loan there. Hes good on the ball but he’s got a knack of being in the right place at the right time he’s tackles against to Dundee the other week set up the equaliser and sure he did the same at Hamilton weeks before. His first season as a pro and he’s played a big part at saints keeping them up. Needs a league one loan but generally I rate him.

  17. A mistake waiting to happen in every match. Cost Derby in play off final two or three seasons ago. Seen him 'live' on numerous occasions. To me, has a strange body language and I think he's a sandwich short of a picnic.

  18. Mings, Abraham, El Ghazi, Tuanzabe, Mount, Wilson and Tomori. 32% of the starting players on the pitch in the Championship Playoff Final are on loan. Phenomenal stat. We simply must do better in the loan market this summer. Harrison Reed was possibly one of our best (championship) loans to date but we need to get more ambitious in this area and not splooge our signings on the Rakeem Harper's, Martin Samuelson's and Jack Byrne's of this world. I'm not suggesting we built a squad with 5 or 6 loans in it, but 2 or 3 quality loans make the difference. If our team had even 2 of those

  19. God you never say a bad word about the Irish do you! Ask Derby fans if they rate Keogh, I’m not saying he’s poor but he lacks pace these days and tries to play it out from the back even though he struggles too pass the ball! He’s nothing special... And if you think we have any chance of signing Mings you’re in dreamland, he’ll be playing in the prem next season regardless of whether Villa go up.

  20. Yeah your right. Forget the venkys wanted to spend on a promotion push and he had to reign them in, forget he said there is cash left over from two windows and now it's vanished, forget that we have to sell our best players and replace them with unproven youth players. Forget that the sole aim of our club is to churn out talent for clubs with ambition, forget he said we need to sign proven championship quality players because the ones we have aren't good enough then back tracked and now we are signing players who need development, forget he said top two is the aim and then everything else that

  22. That's why my initial reaction was anger. I'm sick of being fed BS and it looks like I've eaten another four courses of it over the last 12 month. Every window is just lies, frustration and disappointment.

  23. I agree, but most critics have not been "slating" him, have they? There was reasonable concern about the offer of a new contract to a previously good player, who was obviously past it. The real issue was what this implied about where the club was going!

  24. Comfort blanket spin for the remoaners Philip. Nigel Farage 35% (his new party + his old party by concensus the same thing) Clear winner. Now declares he will fight the GE. Don't be surprised to see him in coalition with a Bojo lead government if a GE is called... but any GE would be post October 31st so not relevant to Brexit. Fact is the vote was split between :- Leave with No Deal - Farage Leave with Deal - Tory and Labour Remain - 5 parties heavily swung by the SNP in a remain country. That is a large majority for leave.

  27. 200 appearances, always gave his all. Never any doubts over his attitude and his commitment too the cause, was one of our best players for 3 years and even when his ability declined he still always did his best. Never said a bad word about the club or the fans, only ever said how much he’s enjoyed his time at the club and how he appreciates the fans support. Is that not worth anything anymore? Have a day off Rev he’s 33/34 he’s obviously not as good anymore but that happens, the least you can do is have a bit of respect for the time he’s spent here. After some of the signings we’ve had since V

  28. If the Labour Party had done what they should have done and campaigned against Brexit properly perhaps people might not have felt the need to look to vote elsewhere. The failure of Corbyn to speak out forcefully on the mistake that is Brexit sooner means that nobody who opposes Brexit really has a viable party to vote for whereas the leavers can vote brexit or tory and know what they will get

  42. What you can say is that the Brexit party basically hoovered up UKIP's votes, and a number of extreme Brexit Tory votes. Voting for people who will profit if a no deal Brexit leads to disaster is odd, but people are stupid and the masses can be swayed by a charismatic leader that provides simple answers. We could be seeing an end of a two party system as well. The public voted against changing the voting system mainly because they were told it would lead to unstable coalition governments. Good to see things have been strong and stable since then.

  43. No you’re not seeing things! Football fans were civilised then. I was sat over the wall in front of the enclosure and, unknown to me at the time, in full view of my Burnley supporting form teacher. He amused the whole class on the Monday morning with tales of my celebratory antics when we scored. To add to that, we played them in the 1960 cup quarter final at their place and scored 3 in the last quarter of an hour to draw the game. Travelling back, there were fans of both clubs on the train exchanging banter, but not a hint of trouble. How times change!

  44. Gallagher will be due to retire by the time we eventually sign him. Seriously though at under 5 million he would be a decent signing. English, right age, decent enough record on loan for the most part. He needs to move somewhere now where he can call home and get a proper run of games. Maher would be a real coup if we can pull it off. A game changer of a player. I am about 10% confident that we will pull it off unfortunately. Too much money and competition sniffing around.

  45. I struggle to see how Waggott has moved Rovers forward. IMO, there have been too many expensive crass decisions which as CEO, he must have signed off on.

  46. We've already signed his replacement in Harry Chapman........so offering Conway a fresh contract was pointless so Conway could have had his moment of glory in the last game. Conway on his day was one of the best wingers in the Championship but needed a target man. For the majority of his time we didnt have that so his effectiveness wained.

  47. Unless all this is a complex 3D chess media game to hide our financial ambitions from our opponents...TM's recent comments have been depressing as hell. Pretty much admitting Venkys arent going to help with anything, only cheap miracle buys will save next season.

  48. Wow. Harsh. He's obviously not been a world beater & I hope his place in the squad is taken by a better option, but if any player (or employee in any walk of life) gives good, loyal, professional service across a quarter of their whole career as he has done, the very least he'd deserve would be some proper appreciation and best wishes for the future, rather than a dismissive "Next".

  49. Great servant too the club, he revitalised us when he first joined and we went on that run that so nearly got us in the play offs. Found Rudy and Rhodes constantly and chipped in with a few goals. Can’t knock the guy. Thanks for everything CC ??
