Pretty sure Formica was one.

There was loads around that time, wasn’t the Polish keeper one too? Anyway — it was the sort of names that everyone went “who is that??” then it turned out 2 weeks later they where real and we did want to buy them.

Sometimes deals get held up 🤷‍♂️ Look back a few weeks for my Ronan Curtis post mate- get the date and then look for it being released by the press. Beat Sharpe by a good couple of days. Must read my posts with your eyes closed. 

I’ll bow down to you if I ever see you mate, we are all unworthy.

I'd be happier if we kept him. How will we ever be promoted?

I thought we were building. 

Just with the talk of ffp and saleable assets mate. I wouldn’t cash in but just trying to show the point you never know who’s worth what anymore to those claiming we have no saleable assets.

Really enjoyed reading @J*B's posts on transfers and FFP Rules tonight. 👏

Great insight. 

Hope we get both signings we want tomorrow and let forward to Boro game. 

I wonder if Bournemouth's left Back Brad Smith was an option for us before.he went to Cardiff

It wouldn't do us much good if some club was willing to pay 15 million for Nyambe. There's no way they would start with that bid, having seen us sell the likes of O'Connell, Cairney and Raya for far less than we should. They would just enter a bid of say 5 million and good ole Tony would say 'Yeh that matches what I think he is worth, and it must be their final offer, let's sell'.

Yeah remember Unleaded breaking that from completely left field. Might get some more info once we start scouting Europe properly.

Al Muhammedi was close to joining Rovers as well as Mido .. remember Rovers looked a lot in Egypt.. .. Imagine if we had stuck at it could have had a few nuggets there .... 

Valencia was a done deal until Wigan came in last minute....

John Carew came scored a hatrick and still we never signed him ...

Now it’s just TM and his local area ... 

Brentford is a club you gotta admire .....They go all over Europe .. as well as Lower league ...

Don't think any one will ever top the photo of Salgado at Northcote on here.  Was it Hughsey's grandad or something?  😂 

The guy that posted the Stanley House guest list because it included Kalinic name - along with room number and Rovers credit account at Stanley House was quite something. 

Equally the guy watching the first team train out of his office window at Brockhall and telling everyone the first 11 plus subs 24 hours in advance. 

There’s been some good times.

Some tension from a few ones here who are frustrated with me and Bbrovers. From my point of view, I think its exiting when Bbrovers have some info, dont need to know all the details, just some info I can get exited about.

And you can critisize how much you want, I just dont get why people get so angry. Just scroll on if you don't like it. It's not like i comment on every single post on here, I don't have the urge to reply to everything I don't agree with or like.

BUT for the few people who thinks it's a bit exiting, the word is still, that he i 100% sure we sign 1 tomorrow - most likely 2. I was a bit frustrated at Mowbray earlier tonight and still am, but he surprise me know and then.. Not at all as naive as he can seem in interviews.

Ignore these — what was the guy called that broke into Ewood and provided live updates as he tried to track down the board to give them what for?

I sincerely hope our season doesn't peter out due to our naivety in the transfer market like last January. 

Was it Lenihan who got injured soon after and our season ended in February?

K**n used this as an excuse for our league form. "Damaging wurselves before we've kicked a ball"

I remember watching Carew in that reserve game and thinking we've got a cracker here.

Then his agent wanted too much I think. Expensive hatrick that was.

Didn’t the Brockhall lad get grounded after it was mentioned in an interview about the teams leaking?


Remember when someone said they were flying out to Qatar to try and convince a prospective buyer to move forward and posted pics of an airport lounge straight from google to prove it

I think it was someone in Thailand

Ok I will say it once more for those in the class who aren't getting it

It's easy to pick great cheap signings in hindsight. For every one of those ,there are more bad ones. 

I asked him to tell me a low risk, cheap player that we could sign now. So why are both of you missing the point? 

That’s not what you said initially though, you then changed the question. 
Might help if you said what you meant?

It was. The day after the window shut, if I remember it rightly. And many of us pointed out this risk, with trepidation.

We have set ourselves up to the possibility of the exact same thing happening again. If Lenihan gets injured, suddenly we are having to play Williams or Mulgrew, and that won't be a good thing at all.

Doesn't sound like a CB is remotely a target, so we haven't learnt a single thing. Lenihan is prone to injuries too.
