Pre-season 2019/20

Recommended Posts

We don't need Adam to put a shift in but is ideal off the bench when we need something different.

I am heartened by the reports, Barrow or not. 

The only Rovers player mentioned on the radio for the first 20 minutes was Brereton. Then we got Charlie Dack so doesn't necessarilly signal anything apart from him causing the og.

No scouts involved with Adam.

He rang Mowbray himself...

This thread is about pre season games and it's a comment about how somebody played. As we aren't playing anybody of note how do you propose we judge players?

FFS

😀 Sorry, my over zealous reaction

That has to be a huge concern if only Adam can stand out against Barrow.

I guess he has more to gain from putting a shift in though.

Stuart - how can a pre-friendly at Barrow, which we won, be in any sense, "a huge concern."

Assuming we haven’t had scouts looking at players, which as we all know is completely pointless, then you’d have to look at things like experience, fitness, potential (short and long term), most recent season, circumstances, and the contract terms they would require.

You do not judge them on performances against teams two divisions lower and more.

Even on a pay as you play he would be taking up a squad place so he needs to be able to deliver success on the pitch in the second tier of English football this season. Rodwell had some credibility because of his age and potential, while Adam would be an emotional signing rather than a sensible one. A huge gamble.

The comments about Adam have been taken right out of context. In this, the pre season thread, there has been praise of his performance because he was the best player on the pitch. I haven't seen a word on here about giving him a contract but simply praise for his display from some people who were there.

And those thoughts are pretty much echoed by Mowbray in his post match interview.

A Championship side winning  against non-league opposition should be a given.

The concern is that the only person who stood out (by far) is a past-it trialist.

I’m hoping we drop our interest very soon and prioritise bringing in the defender that we need.

And that assumes we have a keeper lined up.

Granted, and in the context of the thread that’s fair. I just hope that Mowbray’s head hasn’t been turned.

The trouble is that he’s the kind of manager who spends £7m on someone whose biggest achievement was that he gave Conway and Williams a hard time in one match.

Sorry, still pondering what your "huge concern" is.  Frankly I think you're making it up, for effect.

Feeney and Williams, get it right.

I have been away on holiday, when I logged in to Rovers on my return I have found out that the Rangers game is sold out. If anyone has or knows of a ticket going spare could you let me know.

 I'd say his biggest achievement was getting man of the match when Forest knocked arsenal out of the FA Cup... Or being top scorer at the under 19 euros.

Just a heads up Rovers fans if you can't get tickets..

Rangers had a pay on the gate stand today v Oxford,don't think you'd get much hassle if sensible.

Rangers battered 'em 5-0 btw!

I hate being a pessimist - not in me nature, guv! - but what'll it do for our, let alone the players', morale if we're on the wrong end of a scoreline like that a fortnight today?!🙄

As we may well be if current problems haven't been addressed.

It'll be a lo-o-ong journey home.

3 days after their European game I’d be astonished if we’re not playing their reserves. Therefore, a hiding is unlikely. That or truly humiliating.

Personally I'd rather avoid that - it only takes one dickhead and Rangers have plenty of those among their support. Anyone coming up on the train can nip into either Kitty O'Sheas on Waterloo Street or there's a Wetherspoons on the corner of Hope Street and Argyle Street called the Sir John Moore, both literally right next to the train station. The Wetherspoons has scaffolding around it at the moment but it is still open as usual. There are also a couple of pubs on Hope Street between those two. We will have my partner's kids with us so are likely to be in the Wetherspoons (Kittys is my 'local' and there will be no Rangers fans in there!)

Why because a load of folk think they are their ‘second club’ because they wave Union Jacks about?
