Evans, Smallwood, Davenport, Adam, Butterfield, Johnson, Travis and possibly Rodwell. Can't wait for our revolutionary 1-8-1 formation opening day. 

Seriously though, as I have said a few times, something has to give here. I have a sneaking feeling Evans and Smallwood will leave

I think Rodwells offer should have been given a deadline, take it or leave it.  It makes no sense to me that pre-season has started and he is over in Australia. I wouldn't go crazy if he re-signs ,but he hasn't done himself any favours. He would really need to put performances in and quickly. If he signs somewhere else I think we might look a bit silly, the fact we were waiting for his answer. 

He was given a deadline - shock the initial words have been changed.....again

Well he incorporated Travis into the team, who clearly knew the position and played it the way Tony wanted. Reed is a loanee player, so I'm glad Travis was used there more than Reed anyway! 

He had no choice with Travis. Early in the season he barely got into the squad. He played against Sheffield United on December 28th because Evans was rested having played at Leeds two days earlier. Smallwood got sent off at Sheffield and Travis put in arguably the performance of the season against West Brom on New Years Day. In the next few games Travis was outstanding and contributed a lot to a winning run. I don't for one minute believe that Travis would have got much game time if Smallwood had been available. In fact I think Travis would have been sent out on loan in January but for Smallwoods stupidity.

The relief on 80% of Blackburn Rovers football club would be outstanding if both of them were to leave. It would make me a very happy person. Harsh but true.

Make that 100%

I am pretty sure he wasn't. Where did you see that

So some nice moves upwards.

Interesting you mentioned Mosely I have vague memories of watching him for Brighton v Utd in the cup final as a kid but I'd no idea until now he started at Rovers.

Which is where the 'Harry Berry thread' is going to be so interesting in reminding each of us who has worn the famous blue & white halves. Or a Rovers' keeper's jersey. So many names!🤔🤔

Who’s called who a name? 

‘Thin skin?’ ‘Trump’ I don’t rise to the personal stuff you like stirring up with posters like blueboy, so don’t bother.

Good, I’m glad you agree that it was a flawed policy, and thankfully Waggott/Mowbray/owners or a combination do too.

 

I don’t agree at all. I think the momentum of our u23s and the difficult of paying top championship wages means recruiting and developing for the squad isn’t as simple as “oh, young lads didn’t work last year, let’s get some older heads”

From my perspective- common sense says plan is far more complex than that.

Think you are giving the club far too much credit in having a coherent, long term plan myself, but that’s your prerogative...

On the LT will have a dig! 

It was, same deadline as Conway plus Mowbray issued a sort of warning to both to make their minds up. Conway did and left.

Some and I am not putting @Mattyblue in this category, are adamant they have it all figured out even though there is loads of the window remaining.  They will complain about who we are linked with until they sign for someone else and then the player will immediately become great and Mowbray will be at fault. They will say we have no money, just like last summer, then when we spend it, some will concoct a new narrative to save face.

I think we just assumed the contract end date was the deadline.

At this point, I just don't see how we need him anyway

It was in the LT and not an assumption.

Me too.

Or alternatively, some will say that TM has it all worked out and we should get behind the lads, however rubbish a job we think he's done.

My post is as pointless as yours! :)

Where has the Joe Hart talk come from? Have I missed something?

Only ever want the best for my beloved Blackburn Rovers. . .

😁 Don't we all?

Glad to see I'm not the only one to use the club's full name, Matty! I find it provokes some sad expressions, especially on the faces of women friends!😂

Be very interesting to see how Raya does next season with a decent defender in front of him.

I hope Raya has a thick skin as he’ll get plenty of stick from Pontus if he makes an error. I remember him tearing a strip of the young Leeds keeper last season after Lenihan’s goal. I’m astonished that Leeds have let him go. There must be a story there.

Always m1. Especially when to non Rovers fans. 

‘I support Blackburn’ sounds like nails down a blackboard to me!

No, some will look at things rationally and realise the window isn't closed. 

I was replying directly to Biz anyway. Keep scrollin!

Oh, see now that’s something I haven’t actually said.

Do I think having to wait till May to go to India and agree budgets is a good strategy? No.

Do I think that the owners/pascha are completely ignoring “advice” or we have a perfect structure? No.

If I’m looking at the previous two seasons, I do think it’s a overly critical to suggest there is “chaos” in our recruitment or a constant shift of plan? Yes.

I just don’t think we can offer as much money, or are as attractive of a proposition to players as some might hope. That’s more down to current context of our club, position, debt etc- not down to Tony “too nice” Mowbray!

Had a dig, didn't find anything about a deadline, so you maybe want to provide the link? So much stuff here presented as facts with no sources.
