We do have to remember he's not playing weekly due to being a free agent, so his match fitness is probably awful. 

Everyone was saying he would be an upgrade on Bell too right? 

No, they didn't. For a man looking for a job he didn't put in a good application, to put it mildly. Stay well clear.

Intergalactic Class. 

Shame I can only like this once.

His engine was most definitely world class, but then I would say that...

Didn't even recognize him tbh and was too embarrassed to ask lol. But yeah, now i remember, Petrovic, came with a reputation of scoring good goals from midfield. Completely pants he was.

He's been the one player over the years that has always stood out to me.  I don't think he was a League 1 player.  He was so lost.  He played for some decent clubs after Rovers which was shocking (some Turkish club, Kyiv, Sporting, Rio Ave, and Almeria.)

Look, here's my view... we are loaded up front, have a major weakness at LB (maybe LF/LAM if BB doesn't continue his current form, but have plugged all of our other holes.  This squad has the chance to to go up.  Gallagher sucks out wide right, but will play there when Little Messi isn't fit or not in form.  TM has his faults, but he has steadied the ship.  This is our best chance to go up in 10 years.  Let's have fun with this season and not be at each other's throats.  This should be a magical ride.  Let's enjoy it and stop the bickering (and hope we get a new LB).

YES 

100% agreed

If Brennan continues his development, he will be a threat to Gallagher being selected as well.

Does your quote function not work? It always takes a bit of detective work to find out who you are replying to.😉

Think it’s due to have a long standing aversion to seeing a page of a thread that just contains quoted loonnggg posts with  ’This’, ‘Great post’...

Great post ........ But if that's ^ not what you're going to do it doesn't make sense not to quote. It makes the thread easier to read.

I think I may just be tired😁

Looking at some left backs in the PL, any chance for us to get any of these guys ?

- Sam McQueen

- Achraf Lazaar

- Rahman Baba

I don't know too much about these players, I guess some others on this board do ? It just seems like they are not getting any game time at their clubs.

Baba used to be great for Augsburg before Chelsea paid a lot of money for him. I had to check what he's been up to since and he's been loaned out a lot but hardly played. Guessing lots of injuries

Just going off at a tangent for a minute - it mentions a player called Lewis Baker in my paper. It says he's been a Chelsea for 16 years and has played 133 league games- non of them for Chelsea ! It also mentions a 23 year old Chelsea player called Izzy Brown who's been loaned out 9 times. They have 25 players loaned out at the moment. What's that all about ?

Luke Thomas from Leicester City or Brandon William's from Man Utd could be options. 

Cant see Lazaar or Baba being option due to wages

Dont think that theres any chance of Williams. Southampton tried and failed for him I read on deadline day.

They wouldn't guarantee playing time I heard was the reason it didn't happen.He is currently behind Telles and Shaw so don't see him playing a lot for the first team this year.

They would probably want a good portion of his wages paying that would most likely rule us out if he is made available

We do have a new player being added to the squad before December - I believe he's called Bradley Dack .........

The player who really needs to buckle down and perform consistently and effectively in the current structure is Joe Rothwell.  You have to say Bradley Johnson has been a revelation this season and Lewis Holtby is looking like the player we hoped he would be.  Both have stepped up a level in consistency and effectiveness from last season.  Joe Rothwell shows potential, is exciting when he carries the ball forward in the final third but is inconsistent and if I was facing a firing squad I would hope he was in it.

The system Rovers are playing (4-3-3) seems to be bringing the best out of the team, add that to see the really heartening performances by Williams at centre-back means that the one position I think Rovers need to sign a player to help improve the side is left-back.  As discussed there are free agents out there that might fit the bill.  I am a little concerned about the right back slot but we will see on that.

Also well done to the European scouting team as the signing of two goalies shows.

That's nothing compared to 2016 when they had 38 players on loan,i guess the idea must be sign a load of  young players or older players for cheap and loan out hoping to make a profit on them if the loan is successful.
