Comparing Shearer to Gallagher is just daft. Shearer is one off striker. Best Striker in the PL history and I don't think I've ever seen a better striker in my lifetime

Why would Mowbray lie about making cash bids for players? 

Well you cant make comments like why didn't Samuel and Smallwood leave at the start of the month without knowing if they was any offers for them. 

Like I keep telling you not every striker is natural goalscorer and you can see the type of striker he is with the goals he scores.

Do what you want pal, I not bothered

I never said he is lying! I have repeatedly said we have very little money, and the manager saying we are miles away from affording our targets hardly disproves that, indeed its the cornerstone of why I think it.

And i never said they should have left. I said these meetings should have been had prior to the window opening. Maybe ask them to train with the kids, I totally empathise with them wanting to sit on decent contracts, so make it a bit more difficult for them? 

Youve avoided telling me what kind of striker is. Hes a poor one who doesnt score enough goals and who the manager seems now to be trying to convert into a winger where he is even less effective!

In terms of departures your right, but it’s more than one. Tm has been having 1on 1 meetings all afternoon , few are being asked to leave with options put to them 

Way too late for this window, all this should have been sorted out in November or December. Even if we had no money to spend there's an obvious and pressing need to shift out our deadwood and the window could have been put to good use by doing this but no doubt any half hearted attempts will come to nothing at this late stage.

It really does make you wonder what Waggott does to justify his no doubt not inconsiderable salary when we cant even get our ducks in a row in time for the transfer windows. I'd say every one has been a disaster since he arrived. What else does he have to sort out all year?

i tell thee all,mowbray has no say in the transfer policy of incomings and outgoings,of course he/waggot won`t ever publicly admit it,it would make tony look a right lemon,ask yourself why a tactically cautious manager would blow 12 million quid on two strikers,one unproven and who appears to be a duckegg and the other who`s limited,never plays his correct role and won`t get you 15/20 goals a season,im`e of the opinion that tony will resign with a pay off at the end of the season

People talk of him as young. Shearer had scored a hat trick on his debut, played for England, transferred for a record fee, got a career threatening injury, overcome a career threatening injury and was lifting the Premier League trophy at his age.

Gallagher has already played more than half the amount of games that Big Al did for us - so it's about time he learned the basics of striking.

 

 

...of course I'm mischief making but it is all true.

Goal scorers are born not made. If you were watching the Shrewsbury v Liverpool game. Whalley was through on goal twice and never looked like scoring, Cummings comes on and with more or less two touches put two shots in the back of the net cool as you like.

I've told you before on here and other social media sites. Me and Pete both told you the type of striker he is.

Not every striker is a 20 a goal striker either. Gallagher isn't a focal point type of striker. We are trying to move on from playing that way and playing differently and using Armstrong pace and movement so allow Holtby and Rothwell more space to creative 

Apart from dismantling a  10 man Sheffield Wednesday last time out, its a style of play which has looked inept and toothless for a lot of the season.

The gallagher bashing is a bit ridiculous imo, not many young lads join a team and start banging them in first season. What I see is a determination to work hard and learn. Has he paid off the 5 mill fee - not yet, but I think he will. He dropped down in level and wage to get game time, he isn’t content on sitting on a bench. Is he the finished article- no. Is he a natural finisher- no. But if he was he wouldn’t be here. What I would like to see is for him to be taught to get into scoring positions, when to make runs etc, I think that’s what he lacks. At times he is trying to do too much himself by dropping back. But that’s what the criticism of Rhodes was- all he done was finish, we can’t have it all. I have seen him score some cracking goals, I’m convinced he will come good, I ask for a bit of patience with him. Brereton is a different kettle of fish I’m afraid.....

for reference- gallagher has the same number of goals as Sam vokes this season who I regard as a very good striker. 

I'm sorry but to pay 5 million on a 24 year old striker and then have to teach him how to make runs and get into goal scoring positions beats the shit out of me.

so with 4 days to go let me recap the last 197 pages :-

no money

no transfers

no pies

no hope

And not even a European scout . But then it took us a long time to sign any body outside Teeside or south of Watford .

Absolutely pinching a living is Stevie boy. This reminds me. What is Mike Cheston up to these days? The man who said Coyle was the outstanding candidate. And Agnew. And Derek Shelfy Shaw? And Shebby, I'll call one of our senior players a pensioner in an interview, Singh? We have had some absolute imbeciles in important, decision making roles. Corrupt imbeciles too. Could easily have been a mirror of Bolton with a role call of idiots like that. Apologies for not keeping on thread.

You two wanna get a room? 😏.

Me and him have these discussions about Gallagher, how to use him and his strengths last summer before my ban was up..its just seems like I'm having the same discussions again with him. It just gets boring repeating myself to him

You mean agents and other shady characters are having a say in the running of our club and impacting on who we sign? No chance. That would never happen surely.

The fact you keep repeating yourself to him doesn't mean you're right!

Mainly because you don't engage with any points that show TM in a negative light...

I know for a fact that Mowbray and Tesco meet players for talks. It's not all done behind his back, crikey mate hes been in football a long time, he's right in the thick of it.....

It’s about learning to play with players in behind him though , when do they release the ball, do they go to the byline or more from deep, he hasn’t been given enough time to gel with the players imo. I do think he is trying too hard, expectation of transfer fee. I think rovers fans can at times be too critical of players , particularly strikers. I don’t want another Kevin Davies/James Beattie  situation where he flourishes somewhere else

The dingles got rid of Vokes at the right time. His best days are behind him now. I thought he was a poor signing for Stoke.

Respect your opinion but I quite rate vokes, granted his best days are behind him. See a slightly younger Danny Graham in him

Its impossible to try too hard. Ultimately, its difficult not to be critical of a big money striker whose strike record per minute is up there with the very worst in the league.

As a neutral, I need to tell you it's because you're almost always unable to provide him with a convincing counter argument. You repeat yourself because you don't have a better argument to offer even though your first wasn't convincing. You keep saying things like 'I already told you I think'. He knows what you told him you think, he's a smart guy. He's trying to tell you, you might well think it but your argument doesn't stack up because x, y or z. If you dont have anything new to reply with, I'd recommend you don't reply instead of repeating yourself to all of us.

Hope that helps. I'm not trying to have a go, just telling you how it comes across.
