Thought you hadn’t seen Mols? 

I haven’t. It was in reference the conversation I noted above. Thought it was weird that he was so good when no one else really talks about him.

But you said you hadn’t seen anything of Mols? Seems a fair opinion to hold if someone has watched both 

As above. I haven’t seen Mols but I’ll take the opinion of a professional over those on here. 👍🏼

Which centre backs are close to breaking through?

I was talking over the 2 or 3 seasons when I mention young centre backs. 

Isaac Whitehall is doing a good job from what I've read. I couldn't make yesterday game due to illness to see the Academy cup game. 

I was impressed with Sam Barnes in the games I've seen this season. Its a shame I've not got to more sadly. 

Hayden Carter was good against Burnley game.

Who is the opinion of? Without that detail, it seems a bit of a pointless addition to a conversation only to then mock people for having an opinion based on seeing them personally. If only professional opinions are worthwhile then you wont find them on here.

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. 

Think most youngster would struggle to get into the worlds best team atm. Even Harry Wilson couldn't get a game. 

Liverpool U23 aren't that great, Rovers beat them on both occasions last season. Esp on Anfield they outplayed them. Magloire bullied Brewster, Buckley ran things in midfield and Butterworth tore them apart upfront. Jack Vale who I like a lot also had a great game upfront. 

Liverpool, Everton and United were all reported to sniff around Buckley before he signed the contract last year. You would expect the top clubs to keep an eye on U23 football. 

Callum Wright, who Leicester "stole" from us as 16 year old a couple of years ago is also on display at U23 level. Doesn't seem to have kicked on as much as expected.

Me too!

Which is why I asked Bangali Fode Koita and he said Vale is the pick of the bunch

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

Agnew was a rancid cock

You know it's not Tony who sorts out the contracts, negotiation? 

yup.

Suhail and his Kentaro / SEM mates sort that shit out.

I think unless we are going to sign a player who walks into the team then don’t bother and wait until summer and see where we are. 
 

Already we know we are going to need new goalkeepers, new left back, new centre back and likely Graham replacement for next year, are squads big enough to try the youth we have on the fringes and see how they do. We’re gonna need all the money we got for next season.

Haha why won't it??

A number of League One players at Bury were on 8k a week. Championship players at Blackburn Rovers who didn't come through the youth ranks won't be on less. I think people are very naive in terms of what players get, even at our level.

No more than 5K a week.

Nah. Definitely more.

 

Ridiculous amounts of money either way - especially when the manager barely uses them.

A quality player can play across the park! Rovers have some solid young players coming through and it is good to see.

That's where we are going wrong. Jack of all trades, master of none. We need experts, not makeweights.

A reserve player I knew from around 7-8 years back who never made a first team appearance was on 2.5k back then, and £60 appearance fee in reserve games which he said even the first teamers got if they dropped down for a game.

Richie Smallwood is a model professional. 

He did give his all (and still does, i'm sure) and the contract that he has is hardly his fault. 

Rovers supporters love to hate on their own players and Smallwood seems to be, unfairly, disliked now. 

There's a nasty, negative attitude supporting the team but, i guess, that's modern times for you. 

The King is, still, very much alive! 

You reminded me of a post on Facebook earlier today. Basically some bloke saying Bennett was past it but also qualifying his stance in that he wasn’t a hater like “other fans”.

When other fans are called haters just for saying a player is past it.

The irony is completely lost on some folk.

I would take him and Rathbone straight away. 

Rathbone is nowhere near the level we already have - ridiculous if we buy him . He would get killed in the championship

Chapman only cost in the 300-500k region, which we spent quite a while haggling with Boro on. 10k a week would be 520k every year in wages. He's also a young, injury prone player who had no Championship experience and the manager has shown he doesn't even fancy that much. I very very much doubt it is anything like 10k. Our top end wages are about 20k.

What a club who went extinct by over-paying their players paid out to some presumably fairly experienced players is irrelevant to what we pay a cheap punt.

If professional opinions were so accurate, we'd never make a bad signing...I'll go with what I see with my own eyes.
