    Brexit

    And let's not forget that Government is only now working out the details so British people and business are still in the dark about what happens on 1 January 2021 because Government hasn't a clue either. A 206 page Border Operating Model was issued yesterday. "Model" As in rough draft which needs finishing with no idea how it scales up to the real thing. Oh and it promises a new app (Government code for £12m for Cummings mates to do nothing except waste all our time with massive adverse consequences in the real world). No doubt it will be "World Beating" ROFL Oh and by the way not one contract has been signed for anything for the between 10 and 12 PHYSICAL LORRY AND VEHICLE INSPECTION SITES needed around the UK. Which all goes to show Brexit really is bollocks- Government is proving it each and every day. Global Britain is as big a lie as £350m a week for the NHS. I was going to suggest paint it on a bus but its in a lorry park yet to be built...

    Coronavirus

    More cheating at Covid test stats. Unprocessed tests sent out but not returned are counted as tests. Similar problem in privately administered tracking and tracing. Numbers counted are traces initiated, not actual people tracked and tested.

    Woods and Cooper for sure, but yeah they don’t have any Perriera’s. Pound for pound we have better players.

    Sam Gallagher Returns

    I am still puzzled by this signing. He isn't Premier League quality and he doesn't give us much we didn't already have in the Championship.

    Championship season 2019-20

    I think we can agree Sheffield United's strategy on winning promotion was better than Norwich's and both of them were better than Villa's. Dingles had two or three return trips to the Championship before becoming a top half Premier League side. Wouldn't surprise me to see Norwich do something similar.

    Surely no brainer. Burnley go for as high a finish as possible because every place is worth something over £1m in prize money. About £10m swings between the Dingles winning and losing the next three games. Translating that into Championship terms, about 50% of Rovers' turnover if Venky's weren't making injections. From a player perspective of course you want European football. From a fan perspective, only a Brexiter would be against playing in Europe. If the dingles get into Europe it will be because they have pushed the Arse or Spuds or both out of a place and I am all for that.

    Three games from the end of the season and Millwall are a point ahead of us. Which of their squad would we take ahead of our squad on ability? We'd take their boss for his ability consistently to get more from the players he has available than our's does.

    I find it crazy that the thought of potential away days across the continent, maybe Milan, Seville, Lisbon, wherever, are seen as an unnecessary burden and youd rather finish lower to avoid it. I cant imagine youll be telling future generations about the time Burnley earnt 13.3m extra in prize money!

    Obviously an extreme example and I don't mean Rover's being in the top three ( given my allegiance, I had to put that in ! ), but I suspect the manager might think differently, based on what's at stake ... Yes it was a burden, although those who travelled enjoyed it .... I would rather miss out by one place, which will be made easier by the Manchester City decision today. If we finished 8th instead of the 15th spot we achieved last year, we'd get a extra £13.3m ... ( Overall, the figures will be down this year due to the Sky rebates etc, though ) . Keep safe and well all !

    Yeah, 99, I think you are right. Gallagher knows he needs a big game, and he should give his best efforts. He’s got talent, he just needs to show it. Davenport is getting lots of love; maybe he feels he has a lot to prove. We will see.

    Premier League Stuff

    Rovers fans want us to compete in Europe because we are are comfortable as a top division club. Burnley fans don’t want to compete because just having an invite is enough for them. They know this is a once in a generation spell for them, and once it’s gone it will stay gone. Small club mentality.

    Brexit

    From the "left wing" Financial Times British business faces £7bn red tape bill under Brexit border plan https://www.ft.com/content/fbc6f191-6d69-4dcb-b374-0fa6e48a9a1e This is just the start of the new bureaucracy and red tape costs. But at least there won’t be any EU red tape..... just glorious British red, white and blue tape. Can someone shed some light on the benefits of all this?

    Premier League Stuff

    Obviously that is a really extreme scenario not befitting of the normal sort of situation a manager has faced. I think id play as strong a side as possible dependant on if those 2 players are fit enough. So was you happy to see potential away days across Europe seen as a burden last season? And youd genuinely rather fall short of Europe this season?
  25. sympatheticclaret

    Premier League Stuff

    Scenario for next season ..... Rovers have a tremendous start, crowds are back at c.18 k by Christmas, the FA Cup draw is favorable and by late March, Rovers are one point off an automatic promotion place and in the Quarter final of the Cup, when you draw Manchester City away. Four of your 1st choice team are one booking away from a two game ban .... Dack's 50/50 with a hamstring, Danny Graham's having an Indian Summer with 24 League goals, but being wrapped in cotton wool between games. The City game is on a Tuesday night, but your next two League games are at home against Villa & Derby, the two teams above you ... what do you do ? Discuss ?

    I think TM clearly thinks it was a red. Not only are the comments, but he fined him. You wouldn't fine him before seeing the replay nor if you thought it wasn't a red. Personally I'm staggered anybody in our own camp, fans and manager, think it was a red, and even some neutrals can see it wasn't, but I'm not going to keep arguing about it. It's a game of opinions.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    While I think his time is up due to his non-firing star strikers, it is noticeable oh here that issues labelled as clearly due to his incompetence never gets a favourable mention when they go away. I was struck by Sharp’s observation that we are only one of two teams to not let in any goals at all throughout the season after the 85th minute, whereas last season, when we constantly let in late goals, it was entirely due to a rubbish fitness regime and tactical incompetence. This seasons bête noir of giving away early leads I suspect will turn out to be mainly due to having a shite keeper than anything else.
