Its one or the other he either wasnt good enough/not ready or the manager didnt play him meaning the manager got it wrong, pretty straightforward mate, pick one of them two options, theres no inbetween? You wont cause you wont have a go at the manager in any way whatsoever.

I have plenty of goes at him, so that's nonsense. 

Ya, maybe he wasn't ready. Would that be in the category of the "manager getting it wrong" though? Worth getting him in for a look at League 1 level anyway, he could be going to the Champions of Europe this summer. Like many players we sign, the "experts" here were on saying he wasn't good enough. If he played so little for us, I do wonder how you all formed your opinions :)

and there are also 50+ older / experienced managers who have done or do jack shit.

Think Mowbray at best is a 'has been', if he ever was anything!

It's a pathetic and defeatist argument to say there is no one better out there.

Loads of managers would snatch your arm off in the Championship if they were given £6million to find a 'quality' centre back and striker.

Sadly, for Rovers, I think Mowbray spunked £10million away in last summer's window.  The failure of the Brereton signing alone, IMO, merits his sacking. 

So sack a manager who reached our target of mid table over signing an England under 19 international that he has stated needed time to settle in. Mmm ok then.  I think the money could have been spent elsewhere, but sacking him over it? Come on

We would ALL love to do well this season but not because it gives gloating rights. What if we do badly and everyone queues up to remind you of this post?

This is NOT what the MB is for.

If we do badly what would be the point of reminding me of that post? I have never said we will do well. It's too early for predictions yet. Some of you should remember that.

Jesus wept! I'm responding to your post which said "God I would love it if we did very well this season. The word eating would be good".

I was attempting to point out how childish that was but, as usual, its lost on you. I never said you said "we will do very well". Get your brain in gear!

Please remind me never to respond to your posts, its like Biz on steroids.

You weren't very clear, as usual. I still don't get you and I couldn't be bothered delving further. You only do negativity well. 

Just put me on ignore, or remind yourself not to respond. I have better things to be doing.

What are you gibbering on about? It was the usual stuff of him "not being good enough" on here, before he even played for us, or didn't play as was mostly the case. It happens with practically everyone we are linked with or sign. 

The line was why is Mowbray signing this guy? Well we were in league 1 and a season later he is being linked with two of the biggest clubs in Europe. The move didn't work out here for various reasons, but it just shows that he was a good find. The couch scouts who don't even watch players before writing them off crack me up. 

Your sudden desperation to make everyone seem negative is bizarre. The main criticism when Harper signed was that as a 17 year old on loan, he would prevent our own young central midfielders from coming through.

When he did play, he wasnt up to scratch at that time and looked out of his depth, highlights I remember are against Crewe when he got sent off and against Blackpool when our performance level dropped after his introduction. Its quite ironic that you put this down to "couch scouts" when many of these people who have recently commented are regulars at games and saw him play to make these judgements, and you are not in a position to do so yourself. As you say, the move didnt work out.

The couch scouts say players aren't good without every seeing them pay. Is that difficult for you to understand? It seems to be ,because you are answering something I didn't say. 

How do you know the couch scouts I am referring to are regulars at games when I never named anyone? That's funny, you must have some posters in mind :)

Why the hell do you run around day after day digging out peoples posts trying to twist then to your perceived negativity then telling everyone you've better things to do ?  It doesn't seem like you do as you are the one starting the arguments.

Just accept a lot don't share your candyfloss covered views on everything, that candyfloss was seriously missing when you were wanting Mowbray out and were a merchant of doom yourself not long ago !

Get a grip pal lets get the season started we'll all have plenty to fall out over then in the meantime chill and dig out some Downing posters ready to tell us you told us so when the Teeside Messi does his stuff 😜

I don't dig out any posts like some of the petty crew here. I just comment on what I see. 

If my posts bother, just put me on ignore. What's next? Are you going to threaten to slap heads off concrete again? 😜😅

Harper played like he didn't want to be at Rovers, I would have thought that was obvious. Mowbray must have thought the same thing because he sent him back in mid season.

Maybe the lad thought he'd dropped a clanger coming and he was really unhappy, that can happen, but he showed nothing in his short stay that led me to think he was good enough for this level of football never mind the big time.

It was tarmac and no there's no point it's full of bottle jobs on here, eh.... 😅

I’m never one to claim sources, and this isn’t an insider. However my mates doing a plumbing job on Brockhall today and said there was someone posing with a shirt outside the training centre. Seen as Downing’s already done his i’d suggest this is a new signing to be announced today.

Normally not out until mid July. Said he looked like he had short blonde hair. Don’t quote me on that bit but definitely said it looked like a signing.

If it is (if doing quite a lot of work) I'm pleased at least that we've managed to keep it under wraps.

I know the days of getting a Craig Bellamy from nowhere have disappeared, but it says good things about our operation if we can keep our transfer targets and, to a certain extent, budget to ourselves.

I hope we sign someone, if only to stop the pissing contests here. It probably is Boris visiting as part of the Tory party cluster fuck contest.

Fair play to you for stepping up :) although poor chaddy never threatened to beat anyone with his keyboard or to slap them off tarmac 😅
