He is Croatian, but yeah, we are back in Portugal again.

None the less the timing is good when we are going to Portugal to train.

Borevkovic would frighten up attackers for sure.. Rovers in Portugal so could have a look then.

Borevkovic has alot of potential, only 22 but a giant. Good in the air.

Any idea about what he's like on the ball? Possible Tosin replacement come next year?

It’s something which went on for years. Squashed by the likes of Barca who realised that top players don’t need to be beasts physically.

Cant believe the Bryan Robson one though! 🙈🤣🤣🤣

Burnley's North East scout sent him down. The same scout that sent all the Geordies to Burnley back in the day. Apparently Robson wasn't very big as a lad so they gave him a trial and said no thanks. Ron Atkinson at Villa had him on Guinness and steaks and the rest was history. Loads of clubs have let stars slip through their fingers because they thought they wouldn't develop physically.

Of course there is the other side of the coin. The bigger lads that dominate youth football, until the smaller kids catch up with them physically.

Just to be pedantic Tyrone it was West Brom. I played against him in a trial match around that time. You’re right about it being Big Ron though.

Sorry, but I don’t understand this point you’re making mate. The best players in eyes of the coaches and professionals are naturally worth more because the demand is for the best players, not the steady ones.

Its how good they are which actually drives the price.

Interesting, Mols has never been mentioned to me. Not saying he isn’t good. There’s lots of good lads.

Style over substance being pushed first is what i'm saying really, solid workmanlike midfielders are in my opinion more likely to make the grade in the championship over lightweight flair.

You've got to give them all a fair crack of the whip obviously.

Sorry mate. I knew it was West Brom but I wrote Villa, My heads going I think. My wife left the toothpaste out on the wash basin the other day and I decided it was shaving cream !

Huddersfield have made enquiries regarding Rochdale's young full back Luke Matheson.

I would take him and Rathbone straight away.

That is never going to happen in a million years.

So why isn't he in the team or even close? I don't think I have ever seen Mols even on the bench.

Precisely

Yes, Mols was always the best player, light years ahead of grayson, who has gotten ahead due to his dad,  Alex Curran was also a better player than grayson , I think he suffered a bad injury. 

I just wonder what the hell has gone on considering grayson gets a sniff here and there whereas a much classier, solid , natural footballer never gets a look. (In my opinion)

You might as well put a young lad from the youth team in if you are getting rathbone...too lightweight for me

I would offer Smallwood and Samuel in return. Rathbone has more about him than Buckley. I would cash in on Buckley, £10million to AC Milan, apparently they have scouts looking at young Championship talent.

Would you pay their wages too? Can't see Rochdale affording that , barring pay cuts

If Smallwood doesn’t move on this month (doesn’t seem likely at the minute), he’ll have pretty much thrown away 18 months of his career. 

Odd for someone, that though limited, always gave his all. Must be a nice contract.
