  1. The goalkeeping situation really is farcical. Mowbray has previously talked about sides not selling until they have a replacement sorted, yet he has gone and sold his goalkeeper without a replacement being even remotely close to being brought in.

  2. While I don’t think Mowbray is either dodgy or incompetent, those are two words that Venky’s are going to have to go a long way to shake off.

  4. Why is it a conspiracy ? There's no need for you to jump on every post you might not agree with and come out with Anti conspiracy theories either is there. Agents work in football, more or less run the transfer side that's a fact it so it's is in no way a conspiracy to say perhaps an agent working on behalf of Derby has offered us a few players they want rid of and Mowbray is having a look rather than a scouting report suddenly recommending 3 different players in different positions from one club. Grow up !

  6. It just came over me how close we are to the new season... I'm not the type to get worked up about transfers really but leaving the goalkeeper situation unsolved with only 2 weeks till kick off is pretty amateur. Nevermind not sorting out the centre half situation too. If pre season is all about getting these new players to buy into a new style of play it leaves little to no time for them to come and settle into it. If we suppose we make our signings next week, by the time they actually sort everything out and get on the training pitch it will leave us with merely a week. After all the goals w

  7. Superb. Best away kit for years other than the red and black halves. I have mentioned elsewhere that not enough clubs utilise green for some reason. A bit of green to debut the kit at Ibrox. Couldn’t be better.

  11. This is fantastic! Really stoked for this! I wonder if the footballer they're following is Fergus Suter, the first professional, given the mention of moving towns and a focus on Darwen FC too. Unofficially he was probably the first professional when he was at Darwen, though it was illegal at the time and he claimed to be a stonemason. He then moved to Rovers and officially became the first professional when it was allowed. I've always been fascinated by the early history of both clubs. As a would-be writer, I've considered whether there was a good story to be told about Darwen's early his

  14. The defence is just as concerning. Some decent players have already moved to Champ clubs - Flint, Elphick, Lindsay, Jansson, Kalas. Ajayi close to WBA. We don’t seem to have been remotely close to any of them.

  15. Clock is ticking. Soon enough time will be up. Positions like GK and CB are not ones that can be neglected or 'put off' to a later date as we've tried doing before. Especially not with our record of goals against. A dangerous game to sell Raya without someone already here to replace him. 2 weeks on and no arrival is alarming to say the least. 2 weeks to go. Leutwiler or Fisher v Charlton will be completely unacceptable.

  18. The story of the away kit by Umbro (probably) The base colours taking inspiration from Blackburn's part in the industrial revolution which saw lush green fields replaced with the grey smoke from the hundreds of mill chimneys springing up . The accent grey pattern represents the progression of the industrial revolution, motor vehicles replacing trains and carts and leaving tyre marks on the cobble streets

  19. This is nothing like Madon said, he said it was grey with a pattern on one half and a yellow collar! This isn’t even close to yellow! Madon Out!!!!

  20. Why on earth do you think we need another central midfielder? We need that like we need a bigger stadium.

  21. I’ve always thought the club doesn’t make enough of its fantastic heritage. And anything that shows old Lancashire as THE heartland of the game and not the ridiculous notion that it is the north east with its 3 League clubs is fine with me.

ANYWAY ....... back to the transfers.... hope for a go 2 new defenders and an amazing season for myself the wife and two of my children to watch in our season ticket seats ....... we believe.... in tony we trust

  23. Yeah and that’s in spite of the obvious differences in opinion. The forum is very good imo.

  24. All I can say is that if we dont have a GK at least AS good as Raya or ideally better and a commanding CB - this place will erupt and understandably. That is the bare minimum btw, we need a couple of loans as well to shore things up and not a couple of untested kids - we have plenty of those in our own academy.

  25. Bit of a joke how much of a deal we made out of publicising our involvement in the European Market and thus far haven't even been linked with hardly anyone, never mind even bidding for someone. There are definately goalkeepers out there we could be looking at.

  33. Yet Sterling looking after his mother is ignored in favour of 'being ostentatious and obscene' without evidence. Funny that. Look at the state of this 'journalism' ffs: https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/sport/2018/12/all-times-newspaper-coverage-raheem-sterling-helped-fuel-racism

  34. Also some information regarding the club shop at Ibrox. any Rovers fan looking to buy anything Rangers fans would like to ask you not to buy it at the megastore at Ibrox. Reasons in simple our 'megastore', I.E. Club shop at the stadium is currently a no-go. We're still in a bitter legal dispute with Mike Ashley over our retail side of things, so the shop at the stadium is currently a Sports Direct that hasn't been restocked for at least two years - would respectfully ask that any Rovers fans who are looking to buy a souveneirs or anything. We would guide them away from there

  37. Why would you let your number 1 leave without a clear target in mind or at least a strong recruitment strategy in place to replace him? As I said earlier, 2 weeks until the start of the season. No time whatsoever for the new man to build on a relationship with our defensive unit (do we even have one of those?).

  38. They must have easily had > £500k of press, tv & radio coverage already...as a business proposition that is a return. I am no fan of gambling at all & PP even less but I have to doff my cap to their marketing team who have played a blinder.

  39. He's not wrong though. Watch back all the goals we conceded and look for what Williams is doing during them. I lost count of the times he was partly or entirely at fault. Poor positioning was a common theme. Did surprisingly well at CB.

  40. I've been thinking he'll turn out a better option all the time he's been here but he hasn't yet he's just a bit quicker Del is painfully slow but better in the 1 on 1's. It's one of those where if you moulded the two together you'd have a good LB but you can say that about a lot of our positions but that's the league we are in. To be a good defender you need to be a good tackler and reader of the game first and foremost. Pace, good passing or whatever else are a bonus but it's all about the basics a bit like the keeper situ, get those and you're halfway there.
