  1. If TM really wants Kipre them it’s time to call India .. sure I heard him saying I had to calm them down and if the time ever came to go that bit further to land a player they would back him ... Ring Ring ...

  2. Again it comes down to a complete lack of interest from India. No way would people like Waggott get away with the ground being in the state it is at any other club. You look at Andy Holt at Accy he has spent countless hours of his own free time up at the Crown Ground, resurfacing car parks, cleaning the place up, making small incremental improvements but putting time and effort in and the place is now clean and a tidy little ground. Either Waggott can't get the funds approved to spend tidying the place up (from the owners who care and who never refuse a cheque) or he simply isn't bothered

  5. On another note, happy birthday to Tugay, 50 years young today and could still have that ball on a piece of string. Thanks for the memories!

  10. There is evidence that for some kids stress and anxiety levels have dropped. And as for unions playing games with childrens education unions are there to protect their members. Nobody has yet been able to fully state that teachers TAs and other staff will be in any way protected. Teachers dont just stand at the front of a room and teach. Kids even when told to, dont stay apart from their mates. It's a whole big mix of a situation that NOBODY knows is safe. So unions are quite right to keep insisting on forward going plans to deal with any situation that may arise. It's not enough to say cl

  11. I've been out of teaching 5 years now, and things have changed again in that time. The expectations on what teachers will do have been enormously increased. I'm not saying that schools should not go back, merely that the rush to get everyone in immediately without any organised testing, without close monitoring of a situation, with no thought for clear steps to protect everyone in what is an environment that relies on close contact, seems to me unhelpful. Some schools have space to spread kids out. Some have plenty of room for kids to be taken for separate breaks, lunchtimes etc, to stay large

  12. Then you're arguing from a position of ignorance and for the sake of arguing. You have never worked full time in a school, while gumboots dedicated her working life to school. For a start the entire curriculum changed in 2014, plus assessment methods, plus changes in technology, plus changes in societal attitudes to children, plus changes in safeguarding protocol, plus cuts to other areas of society placing burden on teachers to do more = teaching is very different to how it was 15 years ago. Don't tell workers in a sector about their sector when your experience amounts to the s

  13. How can you 'follow proper process and structure' without coming here then? The only way to legally claim asylum is to come to Britain. It's not illegal to come here. If we were a forward thinking country, we would allow people to claim asylum from where they are (like many other countries do). Instead people have to come here to claim asylum legally, and only once asylum is rejected do they 'become illegal'. WE are the ones at fault becauseour system is shite, and yet we threaten them with the Navy when they DO see us as a land of hope and glory. And when we do provide refuge of £37

  14. Duff before Tugay for me. Duff was genuine world class around the time of the 2002 World Cup.

  15. That Basel goal is still my favourite goal that I've seen live. The chest, the touch, the casual stroll forwards before just floating it into the top corner. *chef's kiss* It makes me sad to think that I'll likely never see a player of that calibre again at the club.

  16. Thought of a solution. Every time an Elliott Bennett fuck up leads to a goal or penalty he has to do a few hours hard labour maintaining the ground. A couple of months into the season the ground will be so clean you’ll be able to eat your dinner off the floor. Eventually he’ll owe that many hours of cleaning he won’t have time to play. Win win.

  18. Just imagine how utterly desperate you would need to be to have to resort to doing that Chaddy. I advised the Gateway Protection Programme a few years ago which dealt with refugees and asylum seekers from the Dominican Republic of Congo. Some of their back stories were truly horrific, and I had staff members who were traumatised just through reading them!

  19. Well its obviously subjective and not really 'proveable' as such but I would pick Shearer, Duff and Friedel because I honestly think that when at Rovers they were the best in their position in the world at that time. Tugay was world-class, undoubtedly and I loved the little fella, but next level from Duff? No, I don't think so.

  20. With Kipre you would think there is as much upside to that deal as an attacking player. Decent chance of making a significant improvement on an initial investment of £1.5m.

  22. I suspect that we will sign someone not mentioned again. Rich Sharpe is very much behind in terms of never breaking stories and Nixons wild swings at Hofmann/McLaughlin/Iversen/Muric etc all turned out to be rubbish. Kaminski has just come out of nowhere. Not only would Kipres price have to drop dramatically but it would also require no one else to show interest even at a reduced price. Im not sure either havw even the slimmest chance of happening even if we do indeed have a strong interest. Cant see the Schmidt deal at all either. Recently given a long term deal by Werder Bremen and

  25. Forget Downing for now and just concentrate this window soley on the back line and trying to keep hold of our good players. The back line being prioritised with all available funds is long long overdue.

  31. With Kaminski landing things are looking up. If we could get Cunningham and Kipre plus an experienced CB and a promising GK that would be a very good window compared to what I expected a week ago.

  34. hoping chapman gets a chance this season,potentially he and nyambe could be great down the right,gallagher needs to play centrally with armstrong behind him or off him,having a big man up front gives you another option,what mowbray has up his tactical sleeve though is anybodies guess

  41. Not sure where the "Announce player" thing came from but its tiresome. Rovers aren't the only fans that do it, all football clubs have fans that do. Not sure why people do it but then again, I think I'm past trying to figure out why most people do what they do on social media.

  47. Honestly @chaddyrovers as a big fan of football as I know you are, you are missing out on some top quality players and some fascinating games. Tonight probably wasnt the best example (finals are often like that) but even then it was very watchable. And Neymar was crying at the end. No sweeter sight.

  49. It's a funny thing with young players. I remember reading the programme once when Marlon Broomes was supposed to be the next big thing in the youth team. Even the likes of Alan Shearer was praising him to the skies. I was expecting the next Bobby Moore going off what I read. When I actually saw him play in our first team what I saw was a very average centre back with no real outstanding assets. He wasn't particularly quick, calm under pressure, bone crunching in the tackle, a commanding header of the ball, good distribution off either foot , read the game well etc He was just deeply avera

  50. Having watched Buckley dominating U-23 football against your Liverpool, Arsenal etc, I'm very confident that he has the talent and ability to become a great player for us. Several of the senior players have publicly said they are big fans of him (including Dack). I will agree he might need to fill up a bulk up a bit, but I think the biggest transition from U-23 football has been the tempo. You have less time on the ball which resulted in him playing himself into positions where he was outmuscled. There was improvement post-covid, and I think he is a type of player which just need time an
