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)

Can't be only because his dad, old Grayson is long gone. The Grayson I've seen in the U23 is a decent footballer. Has an exceptional left foot similar to Mulgrew. While I don't think he is Championship material, I'm pretty confident he'll have a decent career as a professional footballer as his loan spell at Grimsby suggest.

That said I also think Mols is a very decent all-action midfielder who probably deserves a chance. Has potential and is probably ready to play senior football now. Not sure why nobody's picked him up loan.

Buckley was the best player in the U23 by far and I think has the most potential for the future. I didn't think he would struggle as much physically as he have in senior football, but very confident he will become great. He is the rare breed of a playmaker who can pick a pass and go past people and what clubs will pay great money for.

Hutch had a trick were he appeared to over run the ball then brought it through with his trailing leg. I'd have to see it in slow motion to see exactly how he did it. Every full back he played against would stop when he over ran the ball only to be left trailing when he accelerated past them with the ball ! I've never seen any other player do this trick. Even Sir Keith found him a handful. 

Green was a class act who's career was ended by a serious injury after his big money move to Newcastle.

Remember watching 'Hutch' destroy Rovers in a Div 1 night match at Blackpool.  It's over 50 years ago but I'm sure he was up against Newton that night.  Was on the 'spion kop' and it all got rather nasty, as rival fans clashed, with ammonia being thrown.

Little Tony Green was a magician and if my memory is correct, Blackpool signed him whilst Rovers dithered.

Three top class acts there.

Absolutely. The Bloomfield Road match was my first ever away game. Was that really the much-referenced Ammonia game?

Yes, Tommy Hutch had Keith Newton on toast that night, but it did finish goalless-if we are talking the same game i.e. if Tommy Hutch didn't do it to the England full -back on more than one occasion.

 Enjoyed watching Tommy Hutch. 

How could Rovers miss those 2? 

Hard to understand. Green especially was magic. We also sent Ron Davies home as a young player. John Mahoney who played for Stoke and Wales was another.

Didn't know about Davies and Mahoney. 

And how did we miss Paul Mariner at Chorley?

and Vardy at Fleetwood? 

Just goes to show it's not necessary to go hunting in Poland and when there are hidden gems on your doorstep.

Let’s be brutally honest not a single one of Rovers u23 squad ranks along the mediocrity that is and was Jason Lowe, that’s the honest fact!

Tell that to Paul Agnew. Remember his comments about the "emergence of Jason Lowe "being the only reason for Salgado losing his place!

Not sure why Grayson and Mols are being compared if Mols is a CM. Grayson is a CB by trade....

Your opinion is pretty much as it’s seen. Asked about Mols. “Yeah, he’s decent. Has some potential and will play”

Me “He better than Bucko” cue laughing.. “Mate, noooooo...not on the same planet! Who said that?”

I didn’t answer and changed the subject.

There’s the opinion of someone who actually is in elite football 😬

He was quick to shutdown any uncomfortable questions for his mate Kean.

Although, to be honest, he owed him everything. He was a glorified programme seller before the Venkymob era.

All about the commissions for Sheron, Honeyman and Horner @HSH Sports 

We were upgrading the squad when he gave those daft like candy contracts out.

Same manager same agents. Much like how we ended up with the likes of Anthony Stokes and Owen Coyle same agents.

Interesting.

I can see the link with managers, but very few of the current players seem to be HSH. I can see at least 11 different agencies involved with the current team.

Are you thinking that the agencies are working together like  SEM and Salamanca Ferrer over the Rochina transfer?

Careful what you wish for mate....there’s some BIG clubs sniffing round our young players now! The types who are happy to gamble £5-10m on potential anytime. 

Id prefer to let them play and kick on and then sell Dack on his return tbh. 

I would to prefer Dack if he wants to go when he returned from his injury and Rovers need to sell him to meet FFP requirements and keep our good young players like Rankin Costello, Buckley plus these centre backs coming through. We seem to have some very decent young players coming through who are centre backs.

There is always a risk but I am sure he will come back. I have seen nothing from Buckley (from limited appearances) to suggest hes going to take things by storm any time soon and I think your price tags are far fetched.

Its probably unlikely that all 3 will break through, simple probability dictates that, Butterworth has his own big injury concerns as well. We can only hope though. Buckley needs loaning out.

I think Buckley will develop in a very good passing midfielder in the future. He has the talent and skills as you can see from his appearances for the club already.

I watch the 23's regularly, and did last season. The only reason Rankin-Costello hasn't been looked at like that in the past  is purely because of his injury issues that have riddled him for a year and a half. He's twice the player Buckley is, to my untrained eye. Surprised the club(s) don't see it that way. Happy to lose Buckley for a big sum if we keep JRC.

I've watched the Under 23's a fair few times and Rankin Costello, Buckley, Travis and Butterworth always Stood out.

21, powerful centre mid

Every time I've seen him he played right wing back and right wing. Never seen in Centre mid

Nobody said that, so why lie and twist? I said Mols was always way ahead of grayson.  Grayson always played up front as a junior/youth player and Mols was an attacking midfielder.  No comparison in terms of quality.

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

seem to be looking towards that market. Wonder if we have hired a scout from that region recently?

How many times have we used this agency during our transfers in the last 18 months and haven't we used over 10 different player's agent agencies?

Mols is the best of the lot. I've been watching him since he was 12.  He's a different class to Buckley, in my opinion. 

Oh dear. 🙈

Buckley was chased by Liverpool weren't he? I don't doubt the lads ability, despite him being shown up physically he's made some touches / passes in his time that have shown he has a football brain.

How far is he away from making the Liverpool team though? 

When I watched their under 23s play Villa, they had a bald guy midfield,can't remember his name,he wasn't great on the ball,but he was far,far more athletic than Buckley. He was the worst of the centre mids and none of them are getting into that Liverpool first team any time soon . It's a great compliment if they are after him, but it's difficult to see him get near their first team.

He was involved with PNE in the 70's, I seem to remember, but I am fairly sure he was a Rovers fan in the 60's...

I havent seen his talent and skills on show for the first team if im honest. Nothing about him has made me think "we need to give him more chances immediately."

Which centre backs are close to breaking through?
