    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Surprising stat that out of all clubs playing across the 4 league divisions in 18/19, there are only 9 that haven't played at the new Wembley Stadium, Rovers being one of the them. Opened in 2007. I guess there are a lot of play-offs and semi-finals played there. Still thought there would be more that haven't been. Before anyone says it, there are only 2 clubs with a game against Spurs as their only visit.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Rich Sharpe today thinks that we’ll keep hold of Dack. I was thinking that they (Mowbray and Waggot) were hoping to sell him and use the money to build and change system. Will all depend on what they hear in India, whether addition money is available or whether we need to sell Dack to fund transfers.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    I think we need: 1. Center back 2. Left back 3. Central midfielder 4. Striker 5. Winger (if/when Chapman gets injured, we'll be back to not having any proper wingers in the squad)

    Retained list 2018/2019 Season

    Put Mulgrew next to someone who is great in the air and he'd be fine. You can't discount the impact of the set-pieces. Where would we be without those goals last season and this season?

    Kits 19/20

    How much better does that shade of blue look on the shirt! Hopefully back to something similar next year. Surely can't be hard to get some blue shorts that match too.

    2018/19 Season Reviews/Conclusions

    Putting the Brereton signing aside, which for value for money has been a disaster and looks like a poor decision. Apart from that, finishing the season in a respectable mid-table position is a decent return to the Championship, I do think we missed an opportunity in the January window to bring in a few loan players to push for play-offs. Just a boost of a couple of fresh players could have kept our run going. Mowbray overall took too long to realise that some of our League One players weren't good enough. Travis and Rothwell were massively under-used. Reed was played out of position too much. We really need to sign some players to fit into the formation that Mowbray wants to play. It has been round pegs in square holes all season with our 'wide forwards'.

    The usual excuse around this time of year is that they don't know what league we're going to be in, so the STs have to wait. Funny that this year, we know exactly where we are going to be next year, yet nothing... This has gone on year after year. Does anyone actually think that Mowbray or SW stand in front of the Loons and say "guys we would be better getting STs on sale earlier"? I genuinely don't think it is Venkys doing this deliberately, its just that they don't know any better, and no-one has had the courage to contradict their ways of doing things.

    Interesting that Norwich’s ‘big money’ last summer signings weren’t necessarily the players that fired them to promotion. No Marshall or Rhodes in the team last night. That Hernandez only joined (on a free) in January.

    Norwich - tempting fate

    It was only about 3 months ago when Mowbray said we didn't have any European scouts. As much as anything else it's Norwich's transfer success that has got them up. That's the model that everyone needs to follow.

    Ben Brereton

    God awful yet again. Not the only one. But he's the only one that cost £6m.

    Brereton cost more than all of Norwich's signings did last summer. Sickener.

    Sound like a broken record but we need a proper left back! Bell just not good enough.

    Norwich - tempting fate

    Seriously. What has Nyambe done wrong? I think that when he was playing he was always one of our best players. How is Bennett keeping him out of the team?

    The co-commentator is ok. But the main guy hasn't mentioned rovers at all. Like listening to Radio Norfolk.

    Pukki is a bit of an idiot really.
