I'm not going to say something popular here, but fair play to Venkys for holding out against selling our most valuable players in this window. They are many things, but holding onto the likes of Lenihan and Mulgrew is at least commendable. Not many other clubs would have done the same in our position.

Not just jumping in with two feet here. It's fair play to Mowbray. The owners have saved money this window and Mowbray has got a squad together.

The owners have not invested a penny.

Agree. Just off topic, are you flooded out, Mark?

No - I'm in Dallas so about 4 hours drive north - all we've had is a bit of rain and a drop in temperature.  Down there it's been bad, worst storm to hit the US in years.  Lots of flooding in Houston and the southern coast, 30,000+ left homeless, up to 1m cars wrecked but thankfully only 38 dead or missing so far - could've been much worse.

Wait and see kind of signing. But pulis wouldn't give the kid 1st team action at 17 if he wasn't pretty good

Sounds like a real talent. Played in the premier league for the team who you would have to say have had the best transfer window of any team, so he might feel unlucky to be off on loan. Let's not forget he is only 17,so I hope fans support him.

Harper signs

Love that you typed the minimum to get first dibs. :D

A 17yo loanee. He needs to be absolutely brilliant, and hit the ground running, or he is just another barrier to some of our homegrown talent, such as Tomlinson.

Can't say I'm happy with this one. Hopefully he will prove me wrong.

Excellent signing☺

Like I said earlier would have preferred our own young players to get a chance but now he is here hope he will add something. It's a shame for Tomlinson though as you would expect Rovers to have given West Bromwich some assurances that Harper will get minutes.Tomlinson should have been loaned out though.This is what happened with Mahoney overlooked when we brought in Byrne and Samuelson and ended up leaving.

SIGN A FOOKING DEFENDER

If Lenihan and Mulgrew stay, we might not need to.

I like Tomlinson, but aren't they different types of players? Tomlinson defensive and this guy more in the front 3 off the striker?

We desperately need a big, commanding centre half. Someone call John MacNamee
