Tosin back on again then? Can't keep up!

It's got 'Injured in the 1st game' written all over it.

Tony knows when someone isn't good enough, hence the Nutt being on his way. Not much harm in loaning out Scott again; it's not like he's on a big wage. And Walton has been loaned out a lot but held in high regard. Not everyone develops the same.

Then how do you explain the fact that in the last year he has given new contracts to Smallwood, Mulgrew, Williams, Bennett and Evans.

It is? Was there more developments?

According to this line in today's LT article on Scott Wharton:

The first of those could be tied up shortly, with Rovers having made progress in the long and drawn out negotiations with Manchester City over Tosin Adarabioyo and hope to finally announce a season-long loan deal.

Thank you! I haven't been able to access that website for the best part of a year now. The pages never load for me. I miss it a lot. I wonder if it is because I'm located in Korea?

Anyway, appreciate the info, chief!

Honestly what a shambles!

What are we even looking for right now? A CB? Is this a CB as Mowbray said at the beginning of the club who doesn't just make up the numbers, but is going to force his way into the team or is it just going to give us options.

The message keeps changing as often as our targets do.

Quite obvious now that we have waded through our list of plan A's, B's and C's. The club is now seemingly in panic-buy mode!

IMO, our dinosaur of a manager doesn't half talk some shyte.

Good job Ajax didn't loan out 19 year old Matt de Ligt to Lincoln, Northanmpton etc.

I hope that's tongue in cheek and you're not comparing Wharton to de Ligt. Even in relative and potential terms Wharton isn't good enough. Looked way out of his depth in the league when he appeared. Lincoln were by far the best team in league two last season and they didn't want him after a couple of months, surely that's quite telling.

Fighting the apathy to get back up to speed.

So we sold a promising young keeper and replaced him with a loanee?

Still haven't signed a new CB?

Oh dear.

Tony is good a telling kids the truth, finds it hard with the seniors in the squad.

Being not good enough for Blackburn doesn't mean a player is without value. Better to get some money for him than to leave for free. Tony has made some cracking signings. Dack and Rothwell are especially absolutely brilliant buys.

Of course I'm not.

The point I'm trying to make is that I think in Mowbray's eyes they are still 'kids' at 24+!!!  Look at his comments on Reed.  Goodness me he even referred to Charlie Adam as a 'kid' after the Barrow game.

The bottom line, is if they are good enough then they are both old enough and big enough!  Peter Crouch might be tall but he has a relatively poor physique - guess Mowbray would be saying words to the effect 'he's not strong enough, centre halves would bully him'.  As I say, IMO, he doesn't half talk some real shyte.

Raya had promise but never really lived up to it. Pretty certain Walton will prove to be a better keeper. So far we have improved our attack, midfield, GK situation with Walton and Hilton, and the defence will be improved by our talented youngsters. All is good in the Ewood Hood! :-)

I was having issues in Dubai up until recently, maybe the LET has been running some controversial content!

I may be wrong on this but wasn't the Ewood pitch the recipient of a major redo over the Summer? Hence not used in the preseason.

Had a look at the pitch when I bought my season ticket last week. The pitch looks in stunning condition.

I was having problems for about 6 months last year, then one day all was ok. In the problem period, I was ok to access the LT using VPN

Good to hear. It looked ropey I saw in a Facebook photo about mid-June.

I suppose we also want to restrict use if we are going to play our 'new' passing game

Just a quick question to anyone who has see the under 23s play..... do they or have they been playing the new passing football? And is this the thought of using the young guns with some of the old guard in defence? Just wondering

Passing style of play isn't considered new at Leyland at all. I went to almost all the home games last year and honestly they line up in a 3/5 back, JRC on one wing and then Lewis Thompson (Jack Evans when fit) on the left wing. Nuttall usually plays up top with Butterworth just off him, and if the Nutt isn't available Jack Vale usually goes upfront.

They play possession football, John Buckley runs the midfield and hoofing just doesn't happen. It's easier to do against 23's players because there's less physicality in the middle of midfield to fight against - but still, the Under 23's have been breeded by Damien Johnson completely to play attractive football - it's why I'm glad he's been promoted with the likes of Butterworth and Buckley as I think he'll really help them in the first team.

Pitch not been completely re-done this season, noted in last FF meeting that next Summer is now the plan for a full re-do. They focused on re-laying 11 academy pitches and all the new building work at Brockhall.

The Premier Suite, Red Rose Suite, Jack's Kitchen and Legends all being done up to the tune of £1.3m over the next few months also. All in all, including Academy Category One status, club spent over £6m on infrastructure over past year and a bit, hence the delay in main pitch full re-lay.

What's being built? Is it part of the plan to merge facilities into 1 site?

Yep the youngsters need to be able to be integrated into the squad. But they need to.be complemented with some good strong defenders who are up to the challenge of championship football. That is who we are still sorely lacking to aid their development
