All players we own that are u21 do not have to be registered as far as I know. Players under that age on loan (Elliott) do have to be registered.

So, I’m assuming of the first team regulars that’s Buckley, JRC and Dolan? The rest need registering?

The Greek GK and possibly some of our younger CBs? too?

But Yes and Joe did it last night.

One spot left for Downing

Looks like it!! I suppose if you had the budget to fill it then Downing is the perfect choice...great experience, versatile, model pro, positive influence in the dressing room and still a very good footballer.

Douglas is also said to have a positive influence in the dressing room. So here's a thought; do we still need Bennett?

Just asking!😏

Thats what Mowbray has been saying, if the budget allows once the dealings have been done then he'll do a deal for a player that the deadline does not count. For the first time in a long time its a decision that made sense. No point wasting time and money on a bit part player before getting in players that were wanted but were on a deadline

I think if Bennett hadnt picked up the injury I think he may have been surplus to requirements but him getting injured changed all that

Benno is probably a gonner in the summer.

Though you can never have too many positives influences 👍🏼

He'd never get in the team.

Benno is going to be out for months so why don’t we put the hate on the back burner considering it means absolutely nothing right now.

I don’t get the hate for that guy. Sure he’s not our best footballer but he’s everything else you’d want as a human being, captain and leader.

I do think he’ll struggle to get a new contract in amongst this group though Joe.

Dont see a hate comment. All that said was Bennett main reason for being in the squad was his positive attitude and experience.

In general, there is a bit of hate towards Bennett. It’s completely unjustified and unnecessary imo.

But I haven’t seen any recently.

There isnt hate, I think Mowbray over relience on him playing in positions where the fans think there  are better players has counted against him. Nyambe overlooked for Bennett last season is a prime example. It gave him the image of a teacher's pet and it is that many dont like

Slagging folk off is deemed ‘hate’ these days. A social media-ism. ‘Hater’ etc.

Shame as REAL hate is all too prevalent in the world and silly application of it dilutes it.

Exactly. And even more so when Mani admits there hasn't been any so called 'hate' recently - so why bring up the term?

Hate is an intense dislike. Whilst I don’t believe many / any Rovers supporters ‘intensely dislike’ Bennett (why would you?), some of the stuff he gets thrown at him by so called Rovers fans is very close to the bone. Especially on social media. Those choice of words are often hateful by definition, whether they mean it or not.

Tbh I don’t think there’s been any hate on here for Bennett that I can think of...sure there’s lots of negativity but kinel if that’s a yardstick then this place is the most hateful place on Earth! 🤣🤣

Some of the stuff he gets on Social media from fans is disgusting though.

He’s definitely the teachers pet but the more you get to know him the more understandable if is. He’s just such a decent guy. The perfect man to lead our club...and he’s had a good career too. Played at the top level. Now he’s not playing and still a brilliant influence on the group.

Not many of these types around. He’ll be missed when he’s gone.
