He divided opinion. Some praised him, some criticised his errors. 

Imagine that? People having different opinions. I’m so shook by this groundbreaking news, I think I need a lie down...

Radox-the Raya paradox!

Can't wait too see how this gets spun as a fantastic move by Preston while also blasting Mowbray for going after Gallagher 

If you actually read the posts on here, like Raya, some rate him, some don’t. 

So some will be annoyed if he goes to PNE, some won’t. 

If you’re going to call people for being negative, at least be consistent....

Danny simpson available on a free could do a job here at right back and put nyambe at centre half.

Id also have mark bunn back whos also played here before.

Nyambes main problem is that he makes mistakes in his favoured position, but he is quick enough to recover from these mistakes. If you play him out of position he will make the same mistakes but in a central position it may be more costly

Why can’t you wait? Surely we all want what’s best for Rovers.

The main reason there was a backlash with Bauer was that Mowbray said we couldn’t meet his wage/signing demands. Yet PNE can? We then later hear that it’s not wages, it’s the player’s attitude. Hmm.

Meanwhile we are still talking about midfielders despite having an awful defence and our most experienced keeper has made 5 league appearances courtesy of a contrived spell at the end of last season.

I think we are missing that pace though and i think he makes mistakes because hes always trying to beat a man whereas as CB he can just hoof it without criticism.

For mine we HAVE to give Brereton a season in his preferred position.

Gallagher is another central striker - we'd have 3 (4 really as Armstrong is much better playing in the middle too) queuing up for one position. Neither Gallagher or Brereton would be effective out wide. I also wasn't very impressed with him last time he was here to be honest.

Which is where we really need to be investing if Mowbray is buying attacking players. Rothwell and Chapman aren't enough.

What most of us predicted will happen, freebies, and then we will loan a couple of players who wont play and have a big panic buy at the end of the window, sam gallagher probably. I think they are doing it purposley, as in they sort of know they cant get a deal they want so will spunk it on a player like gallagher if need be, but our spending will be down this summer  because they will end up loaning him with a view to buy, for FFP reasons, i.e. not actually spending it until end of season so different set of accoounts

Brentford just sold another player making profit again, thats now £46 million incoming fees in 12 months and they still have an excellent exciting team.

With a dodgy keeper 😁

Tbh I think the problem we have is Dack is best off a striker  there's no way we should consider dropping Dack or shifting him so we are struggling to get Brereton or arma into there best positions

I don't see anything in the most recent posts that deserve the "Daily Bicker" label. Biz and I have exchanged a few posts holding different views, perfectly friendly and nothing personal.

Isn't that what an MB is for? I think this "bickering" complaint is overdone and should only apply to personal abuse

I actually agree with most of your posts - it was more directed at the other one that seems to like bickering on a daily basis.

Just a random though, what do you guys think we could have gotten for Alan Shearer in today's market? I mean, clubs buy 4th choice keepers for more than we got for him back in the day.

He was one of the best in the world (best in my opinion) at that time. You're looking at 100 to 200+ mil

The thing with Hart is not his stature or his ability imo, it's his confidence.

There is a genuine England International and Premier League winning goalkeeper in there somewhere, but it hasn't shone out for a couple of seasons now.

Coming down to the Championship (prime age, no less) could see him regain his confidence and form.

BUT I feel that a Ruddy or a Carson is likely to be more confident for us, and likely to improve the defence as a whole. If Hart is confident enough to bollock the defence, then maybe he can quickly regain confidence in himself too.

I'm not against his signing by any means, I think it'd be a real coup, but it is a gamble on relatively high wages compared to the less good but more solid and cheaper Ruddy/Carson.

I'd put Fraser Forster in the same category ... an England squad member not too long ago but a few dodgy performances and a crisis of confidence later and he slips to 3rd choice at s'oton now ??? ...  These are still good quality Gk's for a mid table team in championship striving to get in the play-offs , not saying we could or should sign them but I am damn sure if Preston or Sheff Wed or Forest signed them we'd be green with envy

Easily a 30+ a season striker when at us minimum 150m

Its crazy really when you think about transfer fees. Neymar went for 200 million. Bale what 5 years ago was 100 mil - so thats doubled in that time. In ten years time we could be talking about near billion players.  

Shearer at the time even with my blue and white spectacles was the best striker n the world. Batistuta was there but not in same class in my opinion.

It’ll certainly be interesting to see if they need to score 3 goals to win a game.

I don’t think Newcastle will ever sign the world’s best striker ever again.

Amazing really they he went there when he should have been playing in the Champions League. Non-Rovers fans will use that to put him behind some far inferior strikers.

I didn't mean to look like I was having a go at you, it was meant to be a more general comment. I think you can go to and fro with someone over several posts without someone telling you you're bickering or taking offence. So long as its about football! Too often I read that the bickerings putting them off and I just think its an exchange of views.

When we get someone inventing a future dispute which they "can't wait" for its a bit much though! 

So----sorry, I usually agree with your posts too! :wub:

Nothing I've seen to justify Brereton being given a season. 46 games with 10 men! :o I'm all for giving him a run at some point but It might simply confirm what most of us feel. Including TM by the way.

If he'd cost £1M you wouldn't be arguing that way.

Nah, knew you wasn't having a go and i do understand what you mean. 

Just it seems a daily process for me of wakeup, check BRFCs and Biz is countering someone. Nothing wrong with that of course as long as it stays within the boundaries.

We need a Biz for balance after all - I miss Chaddy (my own daily bicker partner).
