January transfer window 2020

Recommended Posts

3-5-2 is a formation that requires discipline, organization and stability. How could we ever play that when Tony picks a different team from one week to the next?

He never looked remotely good enough, a very strange signing indeed.

Can’t say I saw any of him in a rovers shirt, picked up a few of when he was out on loan. Unnecessary signings seems to be a mowbray trait

He's looking at Mulgrew for left back he mentioned. So Bell, Downing and Mulgrew. I know ,kinda funny,right? Imagine someone said 5 years ago our 2 left backs would be Downing and Mulgrew. No doubt Downing can do a job there, I personally though Hart looked athletic and could do a job,but not to be. 

Bell needs to hit heights he hasn't hit yet if he is to be here beyond the summer,but I would say the reality now is that the position is his  

Imagine if we had Downing and Mulgrew but they were 5 years younger.

Ok this still seems to be going over your head but I'll give it one last try.

I know what the context of your conversation with the poster was. But you once again trotted out this notion that Maddison being out of contract in six months means we shouldn't pay 2.5 million for him. A concept which I have debunked. Therefore you shouldn't be saying it again as any kind of argument until you have at least attempted a counterpoint to my debunking. Unless you agree with me, in which case...you shouldn't be saying it again.

Does your head in doesn't it?!!

There is no point at all in trying to discuss anything with Chaddy. He does not discuss, merely tells you why he is right

See Hart has left the building !! What a waste of money .. this time last year our manager did exactly the same thing then 4 months later handed him a new one year contract ! 
 

is there nobody above him to stop this crap ...This manager knows sod all and is doing what ever he wants ... I feel a Elliot Bennnet extension coming .... just to rub salt in the wound... 

is it too much to ask Radio Lancs and LT asking some serious questions to this clown ...

Sadly, this autocratic and closed-shop / don't ask any awkward questions approach is now firmly established as the national game. Even if you do get the chance to put a question directly to the source of any contention, their response is to blindy dismiss any notion that they might indeed be wrong, and to seek to undermine you for having the audacity to ask in the first place. It happens from Number 10, all the way down to Nuttall Street. I blame New Labour, the Tories, absent and 'absent' owners, Donald Tramp, Maggie Thatcher Giro-Snatcher and Red Ken. Oh, and the Rovers Trust can feck off too, for lumbering us with parasitic inbreds whose vision for the club appears to be anchored around a sociopathical hatred of anything truthful and transparent that might connect with the actual fans of Blackburn Rovers Football Club gawd rest it's mighty and immortal soul....As-they-sayYou-couldn-t-make-this-shit-u

At least Sam Hart may get a chance to face Liverpool in the FA cup, unlike us Shrewsbury didn't throw their game away.

Suppose Shrewsbury ain't that bad of a move but surely the better teams in league one should be sniffing around our players. 9 times out of 10 we loan them to poor struggling teams, not sure if that's a sign of us having crap young players or if we refuse a lot of deals.

Hart was never good enough. It still surprises me that so many Rovers fans thought he might be a viable option for us in the Championship.

Not a chance. 

Unsurprisingly he's gone to a mid table League One club.

Bizarre signing to begin with and not one that I think Mowbray was responsible for.

I'm calling it now.

Looks like for the umpteenth window in a row we're in for the South Korean lad Foo Kin Nowan.

You've forgotten an extension for Leutweiller

That would be no surprise either.

Made absolutely no sense giving him an extension at all. Now, he will be here until the end of his contract at end of the season, with us paying part of his wages. 
Terrible piece of business really (along with the obvious ones as well), especially when Mowbray is complaining about financial constraints in the LT....

I doubt there's much to see in the Hart deal other than another poor player judgement call.  Think they just kept him around and loaned him out to see if he shaped up a bit. You'd like to think he won't be on big wages and with a lot of time on loan there should be a contribution to that so not a huge gamble.

Trouble is at Rovers when one deal starts to look suspicious then another, they all do going off what's happened in the recent past.  Sadly football is chock full of people doing people favours and jobs for the boys.  It's what ruins it really and these days things are a lot more transparent than they were so everything is open to scrutiny.

Nonsense - we’re signing dozens at the end of the window along with every other club in the land. The oracle has said as much on here.

Can you guys keep an eye out for my interest, I've lost all mine for the remainder of Mowbrays reign and especially this (transfer) window.

Not even 3 weeks into January and just like last year it already feels like the season seems over (in both directions).

I genuinely fear that if Mowbray sees out this season and begins the next one, we will be relegated (again) in May 2021.

It terrifies me that he is considering Mulgrew for left back. We will get absolutely savaged down that flank if that happens.

I agree. Mulgrews principle weaknesses are his pace, slow on the turn, and (despite being a big bloke) weak in the air. He will be repeatedly targeted.

If we have to play him I would go 4141 with Charlie in the holding role in front of the defenders. 

--------------------------Walton

Nyambe----Lenihan-----Tosin-----Bell

------------------------Mulgrew

---Arma-----Travis-------Holtby----Downing

-----------------------Gallagher

Not sure you lose too much compared to our current 4231, and you add Mulgrews set piece quality.

Sunderland fan asking me how good is Smallwood as they’ve been rumoured to have asked about him. Good move for the lad if true.

But Lenihan is saying "Top 6 is still the aim" and Tony is "hoping history won't repeat itself!"
