    Very harsh red card!

    The biggest influence on our recent form has been whether Nyambe plays at RB or whether Bennett plays there. Since the start of November: With Bennett at RB: W2 D0 L4 With Nyambe at RB: W5 D4 L0

    Yes when he's played in his natural position, rather than stuck out on the wing.

    Let’s be honest, if Davenport does get a game it will probably on the wing or at right back.

    It would be classic Mowbray for Davenport to have a blinder and look like the player we've been missing next to Travis. Despite only playing due to injuries. Hope he does.

    The Godlike Genius of Charlie Mulgrew

    A positive is that at least it puts some pressure on Lennihan and Tosin to perform. If they ship lots of goals there will be people wanting Mulgrew back in.

    Not his position according to Fleetwood season ticket holders at the time.

    Bell was playing on the left wing at Fleetwood, with his performances there getting him in the team of the year. Mowbray has consistently played him out of position at LB. Similar theme here...

    I don't believe that Mulgrew was able to just ask to be sent back to Rovers. Not sure the player has much say in it once an agreement is reached. We've paid City £1million for Tosin, he couldn't just say 'oh by the way I want to go back to City'

    Mulgrew was sent out on loan off the back of Williams playing ok in a handful of dead rubbers at the end of last season. As has been demonstrated recently, Williams is a liability anywhere on the pitch and likely to be playing left back or injured. So it wouldn’t surprise me if Mowbray has thought it would be used to have Mulgrew around. I also have an outside suspicion that Tosin could get sent back to City, maybe to save money on the loan fee.

    My issue with letting the likes of Samuel, Bell, Galdwin leave for nothing is that we paid good money for them. £700k is not a small amount for a League One team to have spent. When we bought Bell he was in the last 6 months of his contract at Fleetwood. When we bought Samuel he was in the last year of his contract at Reading. IMO we shouldn’t be letting players go for nothing when they are still in their early 20’s.

    Can’t see Rhodes coming, mainly because of the wages. We’re also starting to see the failings of Mowbray’s policy of buying young players to make a profit. We spent £500k on Samuel and £200k on Bell. For them to leave for nothing at their young ages is really poor management.

    FFP Trouble

    Much more likely that Brockhall is sold off. It’s prime land compared to Ewood.

    I think the bad results had already started before the injuries hit. Correlated with Mowbray tinkering with the team and trying to play his possession football.

    FFP Trouble

    FFP is a smokescreen to distract from venkys not putting more money in. As JH says, other clubs have spent far more and got away with it. We sold Raya last year so that £3m comes off the losses. The academy costs (£3m pa) are allowed. Like the last transfer embargo, it would be convenient for everyone at the club as an excuse for not achieving any progress, and staying on the gravy train.
