Hoping against hope that somehow the V’s have got wind of our start to the season and will give TM what he wants before the end of the window. Quite a carrot to be dangled. Won’t happen but we can dream.

Whether we have money or don't, right now is the time to make church mice look like millionaires.

The lads have done their stuff making us early contenders. I doubt any player can look at coming to Rovers as a Championship club as anything other than a fantastic opportunity.

"We're trying really hard. We haven't got millions, probably loans I'd suggest, not enough for a transfer fee and salary. Wants to fill the squad out."

Seems to be very much bargain hunting. Wonder how we will approach the goalkeeping situation. The situation shouldnt change, we still need who we need even on a limited budget.

You look at the team today, Bell, Williams, Dolan, Brereton, Rankin Costello, Rothwell, all very good performances. Do them 6 play every week for a team that gets into the top 6? Most I would suggest possibly not. But you look at it, if we start conceding goals, Ayala comes in, one of the best defenders in the division if he is fit enough. Nyambe comes in at right back probably next week due to injury. I would like to think that we will have a different left back for most of the season, although Bell keeps his place next week. That midfield, does Johnson keep the consistency, does Rothwell nail down the spot every single week? Do Brereton and Dolan justify a start in every single game? We dont know at the moment, but even if not, Evans is back soon, Travis will be back in 3 months, maybe another midfielder will come in, maybe even Buckley will make an impact, of course Dack will come back, Gallagher will come back. Not advocating that the team all needs changing, far from it. I just like to think that with hopefully 3 new signings coming in, and the situation with returning players from injury, we might have options.

He certainly has, but he also started last season well too bud. Let’s not get too carried away but fuck me it’s exciting.

Totally agree Mellor, was about to say similar.

Hopefully he carries it on this term rather than tailing off to be awful as he did last.

Can’t wait to see Cunningham v Dolan next week! Who’ll come out on top? Unless he’s signed for us in the meantime.

When Mowbray says he hasn't the budget of previous seasons, it is worth remembering £7m went on slow burner Brereton two years ago and £5m on no burner Gallagher last season.

Doesn't mean he can do absolutely nothing this season.

Back up keeper and left back are essential. Tricky to impossible to get loanees who bench warm though so I would absolutely go flat out to get a loan left back from PL or top flight league abroad and see if we can pick up an established keeper abroad too. Make the most of the EU transition arrangements before that door closes.

Beyond that, how when fit will JRC, Ayala, Evans, Travis, Dack and Gallagher ( let's not forget Butterworth) get back into this team if it keeps clicking like this plus consider Buckley could blossom to be as good as any of them? Plus Chapman.

And that is before the possibility of any of the current crops of under 23 and under 18 really kicking on.

I know it won't happen but if everyone is fit, established first teamers will not even make the subs bench. No chance then for Wharton, Magliore, Mols, Carter, Brennan et Al..

I’m pretty sure we’ll get a keeper and a LB in before October 5th. Interesting to see how sales of Raya and King, internal sales / loan outs effect our ability to sign better players.

The Rovers management team smell blood and they’re not going to want to bring squad fillers in. The next few signings could be the difference between going up and not going up.

Go back and ask Tony!!!

Playing how we are right now, form and style, players will want to come here. Whether signing or getting loans, we can aim for bigger and better quality, should our budget allow it.

We don’t need much. As Philip mentioned we do have quite a few to come back in already. For me it’s just left back. Bell has had an OK couple of games, he’s been fine but over the length of the season I do feel that’s an area where we are going to get found out. I’m also concerned that we don’t seem to be using Nyambe as much as we should. For me he’s the best RB at the club and we need to get his contract sorted.

I don’t think I would rush to sign a back up keeper if it means we can’t strengthen elsewhere. If Kaminski gets injured we should bring in an emergency loan but if he stays fit, he plays!

Nyambe has started 1 league game, which was lost, and been on the bench for the other 2 which were won 5-0 and 4-0; I am not sure his exclusion has anything to do with contracts. Maybe the team gels better with JRC instead.

The right side of defence did look abit vulnerable when Nyambe came on for JRC. Not sure if Nyambe was mentally prepared to play at all in this game.

Away at Bournemouth is a bit more of a test to be fair. That’s been our toughest game by a long shot. Shame we weren’t playing them now and full of confidence. I think it could have made for a different game. Think Williams has been solid and got a couple of goals as well.

Think that was more about Chapman - who I thought (cross for Armstrong apart,) looked poor

Agree with that. Dolan tracks back and had also scared the life out their wing back.  When he went off, it was noticeable how their wingback attacked a lot more.  Couple of occasions Chapman didn't run back or put in a half assed tackle.

Chapman gong forward is decent back up but he just doesn't have the defensive side in him. It's clear as day in this system.

Injuries can work in mysterious ways sometimes. 

Maybe he's gonna stand up and be counted now Travis is out too.

Adam Armstrong actually turned a massive corner when Dacky got injured and look at him now!
