January transfer window 2020

Recommended Posts

Ryan Manning:

A) why would qpr sell at a ridiculously low price to a league rival

B why would he want to leave playing every week to come sit on the bench behind Amari Bell??

The more we hear about the transfer goings on at rovers the more amateur it sounds.

Manning is out of contract in the summer and has only played 1 game in last 5 games. 

He would be good left back for us. 

Who says he wouldn't play?

So, QPR don't play him and won't give him a new deal.  Why the feck would we want him.?

Mowbray said he was only buying people as backup, not to go into the team.

No,he didn't. He said we sign players for competition and to help the current squad out. Meaning they won't automatically take someone's place, but that they have a chance of doing so if things go well. 

I think that is fair enough.

Also said it's likely any new signings wouldn't play this season as they need to learn the way we play and would have to get to the same intensity as our current lads.

He always says things like this though, I wouldn't pay much attention to it. He threw Tosin & Cunningham straight in, Holtby didn't have to wait too long either.

He's played 26 league games for QPR this season. He can play left back or centre midfield. He would be good signing for us.

He didn't. Competition for places he said. Plus we don't have any left backs on the books for next season.

Rovers line up Liverpool Curtis Jones for next season on loan

https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/10872690/liverpool-curtis-jonesloan-blackburn/

Mowbray did say he had a player line up in the January window but didnt happen due to their FA cup run. 

Now this would have been and maybe still will be albeit half a season to late a cracking loan.

I agree. Was he the one Mowbray mention in the press as the player we would have sign but his club still in FA Cup..

To be fair, the fact that its from Alan Nixon means that we can write that one off. He looked good v Everton though.

We needed players right away. The window has sadly quashed any flicker of a top 6 hope.

If he is loaned out, it will be to a team who have roughly the same philosophy as Liverpool. High energy press, lots of movement in front of the midfield.   Under Mowbray we are the opposite of this.  In fact, in some games this season the lack of any energy/movement has been there for all to see. Probably  or decent european team.

Which doesn't mean he will play, plus the fact he likes players to sit on the bench and earn their place before playing them

You are very quick to anyone who link any player to Rovers are you? 

Well if we don't have flicker of top 6 hope? Might aswell give up all hope and moan after moan everything if that's the case.

You are very quick to believe everything you read and harass journalists every waking hour of the day for any rumour that you can get to be fair.

A lack of necessary signings is a contributory factor to my prediction that the play offs are well away, had we made a few shrewd additions to eliminate the need to have the likes of Bell and Gallagher as guaranteed regulars in our side and bring in some added quality to boost us then maybe that could have changed but not to be.

Sadly, I was right to predict that the kitty was dry and that we wouldnt be able to bring anyone in and it proved to be true.

How was the kitty dry when we were making bids for players Manning, Curtis, etc?.

I rather discuss potential signings or player links then go over the signing of Brereton or Gallagher time after time week after week. Or the appointment of head of European scouting and where we could target. 

Harass? Another lie Roversfan99. I just ask questions of certain journalists just like alot of Football fans. It beaten another discussion about Signing Gallagher again.

Don't think this is correct. Ribeiro only returned from Angola in the last days of December to take over a club in the Portuguese Fourth Division. Pretty sure that the guy is Bruno Reis who has been at the Rovers for about three years as scout of the opposition teams.

I would look at Duncan Watmore from Sunderland as a right side player to sign in the summer

Be an excellent replacement for Gladwin in the treatment room.

We were linked with these players, we dont know for sure, indeed all indications based on Mowbrays quotes where that our bids were absolutely miles away from signing anyone. 

If there is any truth in us bidding for Manning on deadline day then youd have to again question why the bloody hell we didnt bother on the 30 days prior!
