I'm surprised that Butterworth's burst into the box from within the centre circle and subsequent cross shot hasn't prompted more comment. Excellent balance, technique and no little confidence.

Don't be sensitive. I called him the new Rooney. And not the one at Salford.

The only result of expressing opinions so obviously contradicted by data is the undermining of credibility.

I disagree with your “data”.

Mowbray up until yesterday gave young players time following injuries to his trusted players.

It’s almost like this hasn’t been an ongoing debate all season!

Credibility indeed. :rolleyes:

In fairness he did introduce Travis last season and he made a @#/? of it by displaying a lot of immaturity against Portsmouth. Now I think he did exclude Travis for too long after that, so I can see both sides of it.  I think the fact that Evans and Smallwood are such an uninspiring combination , leads to fans thinking that literally anyone would be better, but it is up to the young lads to take their chance when offered it.

Travis started vs Blades alongside Smallwood. With Evans dropped to the bench. He wasn't injured.

Travis has basically been ever present since.

For the fiftieth time.

At the minimum I would expect one of either Evans and Smallwood in the team - just never both of them please. Ideally i would like Travis and Reed as a partnership going forward but thats unlikely to happen now that the Ginja Ninja has gone back home so my second choice right now would be Rodwell and Travis.

Not sure if this is the appropriate thread for this anymore, but Nyambe has signed a 12 month extension

https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2019/april/new-deal-for-nyambe/ 

It's in the transfer thread as well. That's not appropriate either. I'm going to resurrect his own thread and pop it in there too. All angles covered!

That brought back memories Paul.  I remember Luke Staton playing for our youth and reserves - must be nearly twenty years ago, frightening how quickly times passes.  If I remember rightly he had a brief spell with Bolton after we released him and then ended up playing in Wales.

Fantastic lad and very very talented. Does lots for my company now from a motivational stand point. I wasn’t sure if he went to Ireland?

The guy has now given 13 youth players their debuts in two years. We regularly have 4 homegrown players in the first 11 and 5/6 in the squad. 

Magloire did ok. Just ok and now we have Lenihan and Williams playing out of their skin. 

Travis was given his debut BY MOWBRAY. How this came about is irrelevant. In any case, most young players get their chance because of injuries to first teamers anyway! 

Imagine if he’d piled them all in and carried on losing the last four.

You blame the manager for every action he takes which results in a negative outcome but distance him from every positive outcome. The screenshots of your posts on social media are poor from whoever is doing it but you don’t half provide some ammo at times pal.

Sounds like Chapman had a dodgy 80 mins and a brilliant 10 minutes. 

Has anyone watched him live recently. Hows his pace looking after the hamstring injuries?

Very disappointing performance tonight against an exceptionally good Everton side.  Too many players simply had an off night and didn't really turn up until the last 20 minutes.  Doyle made an uncharacteristic mistake early on to gift them a penalty and we never really got back in the game after that.  In fairness, Everton were excellent - which they have been all season to lift the title.  Davenport was probably our best player over 90 minutes in terms of keeping possession.  Nuttall was very disappointing up front and Chapman was very hot and cold - scored a good goal, had a decent effort saved but was otherwise largely anonymous.  Buckley couldn't make an impact in midfield, Tyler and Charly Doyle had indifferent games by their standards and Danny Butterworth couldn't really make things happen.  We livened up a bit when Stefan Mols came on and we went to a 4-4-2 formation.  However, Everton were worthy winners and look good to win this trophy.

I'm pretty sure I saw him play in a televised European Cup qualification  or pre season friendly match once back in the day. Him playing central midfield for a welsh team (Barry Town maybe?) against a big hitter (thought it was Real Madrid, but can't find any info about it, so guess that must be wrong). Don't recall much about it, other than he shot a mindboggling freekick from 35-40 yards that hit the root of the post (or just outside the post). Tremendous power on the shot. 

I knew his name because of earlier games of Football Manager (Championship Manager really). 

Maybe all this was a dream though, as it seems far fetched, and I can't find info that totally matches my recollection. Maybe it was the match they won against Porto in 2001/2002. At least a Luke Staton started that match (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/wales/1467218.stm).
