Or Dack, of course we have Gladwin to fill in for him though.

Yeah, I only excluded Dack because he hasn't had any major past fitness issues. Mulgrew and Graham on the other hand...

If we go into this season with Graham, Nuttall and Samuel and Graham gets injured we may as well just forfeit the other games. Samuel and Nuttall aren't anywhere near good enough.

That's my concern. We desperately need another decent striker. I know some are expecting Samuel to step up but realistically it isn't going to happen.

If we go into the season with the wingers we've got now (Conway) we might as well start looking at who we'll be playing in League One next season.

Without strengthening we're a bottom end Championship team. It's possible we could avoid relegation due to there being teams worse than us, but is that a position we're happy for this club to be in? Venky's are already squandering last season's momentum and good will, as I knew they would, and if we don't start well Mowbray will get sucked into that negative spiral too. 

I'm honestly pretty concerned at the moment. Hard to believe we were challenging for the playoff spots only a few seasons ago. Seems like a lifetime away now.

If the Venkys are uncomfortable with market and don't want to spend on bringing in permanent signings that would improve us and take us foward then they should be looking to sell the club

That's it in a nutshell. The ONLY use to Blackburn Rovers of them owning 99% of shares is that they invest money that the club could not pay on its own steam. If they've no interest in doing so then their time is up and someone else should be brought in to do it. Trying to run this club or any in the Championship off its own steam is futile

While it is seeming less and less likely, if we could get only Maddison and Chapman permanently and a good loan, maybe Lukas Nmecha from City we would be looking a lot better.

Btw  Maddison played for Peterborough last night and made both goals.

Just seen these two tweets from two Rovers fans. Not the first time our fan base has been split by a transfer window. Not sure which one of these two I'd be siding with, neither :lol:

I think that California Rover has taken full advantage of the change in their marijuana laws......

P.S- Butty, have you got your phone charger with you?

Rich sharpes rehashed article today says buys too, maybe higher than Dacks fee. Nixon thinks just loans.

Who do you think is right?

Think I preferred being on ignore as now you cannot stop quoting me. 

No Chaddy, the transfer window is not over but  the man that you stalk on Twitter and that you follow blindly is now talking about us only going for loans. He talks shit IMO (and many others) so hopefully he is doing the same again. 

Would you be happy if we just brought in a couple of loans by the end of the window only?

I have tweeted anyone on twitter publicly? I have spoken to Rovers fans on twitter via PM about Rovers. 

haven't I already answered this question before. I want at least 4 signings. 2 loans and 2 permanent signings. I want 1 permanent signing to be Armstrong who I rated very highly. 

I am confident and relaxed we will see 4 signings by end of the window. Would I want to see 4 loans here? no I wouldn't.

Bang on-most of them are looking at players who are: (a) injury prone, (b) wanting one last pay off or (c) have an appalling attitude and should probably be in jail.

I’m half expecting Nile Ranger and Ravel Morrison to turn up at either Wigan or Bolton, in the coming week. Darren Gibson’s managed it after all. 

Trust me, this hasn’t been the best summer so far, but I still think we’re in a far better position than some clubs. Looking back, this has probably been one of Venky’s better summer periods, after disasters from previous years!

I cant believe Gibson got a club after last season. Wigan have signed no-one I would have really want. I did think whether McManaman would be decent but did nowt last season but that was in a poor team. 

Bolton still 6 signings short according their fans. 

Birmingham aren't signing anyone. 

Ipswich signed 3 lower league players who Edwards the only I would have scouted for a possible transfer. 

Hull, who they sign?

Rotherham, like the manager there, but signings aren't anything special

QPR, have they signed anyone?

I agree but the fact remains we 9 days away from the start of the season and we haven't replaced Chapman/Armstrong, Antonnson and Payne.

We can complain all we want about being quoted ridiculous prices but that is the market we are in,the fee's being paid out is the going rate, what are we going to do not pay a transfer fee again because we are unhappy with the market?

I'm not advocating signing players for 10s of millions but if the owners have any ambition then the Manager should be given funds to bring in 3 or 4 around the 2 million mark.

You have to speculate to accumulate and if that means we have to sell a good player every season to go again and improve the squad then so be it.But we really are short in forward areas at the moment it's getting very very worrying.

 

Antonsson and Chapman didn't play the 2nd half of last season and Armstrong replaced them both. Payne had an impact but I think Rothwell has replace him IMO. 

I do agree with us signing 2 or 3 players permanent for 2 to 4 million pounds mark. Sensible investment. Armstrong, Chapman would be good investment. 

Do anyone know how long Carlton Morris from Norwich is out for? was on loan at Shrewsbury last season

One of those two, the one from the sunshine, is a Venky drumbanger and always has been he was running around other clubs and media outlets on twitter last season trying to make out they were the best owners in the football league I kid you not.

He's a loon.

Haha I'm afraid not. I'm down at 8% now so when I eventually get home and charge the useless thing maybe we'll have signed someone :lol:

What’s Chris Gregson’s handle on BRFCS? All that tweet was missing was some commentary about impending water rationing, food stockpiling, double hard bastard brexit, injuries to Graham, Mulgrew and Lenihan, Dack going awol with the entire cast of Love Island - all of which will leave us in the bottom three in April and to top it all off the Sun will then explode following 8 more months of constant sunshine - this will however bring a merciful end to a traumatic season. Venkys will still refuse to sell the club despite planet Earth no longer existing.

Well obviously, both are just rumours but who is more likely to be right?

Waggott will be thinking of ways to further inconvenience and fleece the fans!

If he's managed to put together a reasonable argument for that, then its almost commendable.

Same. I literally spend all day every day on here - I love seeing everyone’s differing opinions wether they’re positive or negative. One thing that runs through all of them is everyone wants the best for Rovers though, so that’s good.

 

Anyway, seen Max Meyer is on a free from Schalke. Out of our reach? Good player.
