    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Exactly. I really hope we can play badly and still win for once.

    From the video, he seems like a CM/CDM who can pick a long pass, and also fill in at CB. And he loves sliding tackles.

    Let's Talk Tyrhys Dolan

    Did he do 2 Cruyff-turns in 2 seconds before laying the ball to Holtby? Thats how quick he is.

    Newcastle United away in the League Cup

    Saw the highlights. Lenihan looks quite poor to be honest. Always look to get sucked into action and leaving gaps in the middle.

    We need Mulgrew. For the free kicks.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    And we already conceded 3 in our first game.

    Curious. What qualifies a player to be "one of our own"?

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I stopped reading half way through. His comments are just too familar and feels like they are on loop since he has been here.

    Bennett or Bell. Both are poison at left back. Talking about Bennett. Saw him giving both Dolan and Rothwell some encouraging words while they were preparing to come on - which is really nice to see as the senior member of the team.

    Dolan meanwhile has been really encouraging. Lucky find for Mowbray to be honest. The young chap will learn and will get better. Rothwell and him seems to be really good options from the bench. BB started well but faded away in the second half. Kaminski did decent. His kicking looks really good. Calm and seems to like to play a Neuer-style of sweeper/keeper role. Shamed he didn't get his hands to any of Bournemouth's long range shots. Hope he doesn't end up like a Paul Robinson. Now sort the defence Mowbray!

    Bournemouth away

    Gutted to lose the game. We deserved at least a draw. Bell has been awful. You just know he's gonna do his typical cutting in, and then lose the ball. Bell and Williams are quite comical at times. Someone has to be responsible for coaching this defence.

    Bournemouth away

    Totally what we deserved. Dont shoot, dont score. Great strike from Johnson, and a little mistake from their keeper. We battled and pressed hard, but lacking abit of creativity from midfield. Good shift from BB so far. Hope we can find another way through in the 2nd half. Not too bad from us so far.

    Summer Transfer Window

    I was hoping we could get Sarr since we missed out on Kipre and Ayala. It's just strange we cant sign any defenders or no defender is interested in playing for Rovers. I really hope we have some 3rd or 4th choice defensive transfer targets which are good enough to walk into our first team, else it will be a long hard season, defensively.

    Bournemouth away

    Resigning to fate that we are unlikely to sign anyone in the next few days who can walk straight into the first team against Bournemouth. Bell, Williams are very likely to start. With Gallagher and Evans coming back, it will be interesting to see which young midfielders (Dolan, Davenport, Chapman and Buckley) will Mowbray drop from the first 18? Hopefully Dolan will get a chance from the bench.

    Leicester away

    We started with 7 players, aged under 23 and also ended the game with 7 players under 23.

    Leicester away

    Could be down to fatigue or loss of concentration. I think its his first pre-season 90 minutes against a premier league team. Definitely an acceptable display from him.
  17. yellowsubmarine

    Leicester away

    Maglorie has to be ahead of Wharton/Carter. Looked strong and fast. Dolan, Chapman and Rothwell definitely options from the bench. Not sure if we can have all 3 on the bench. JRC impressive in the attacking third, has to start next week.

    Leicester away

    Our youngsters are better than Leicester's.
  19. yellowsubmarine

    Leicester away

    Chapman has been really lively so far. We have to learn to take our chance, and shoot on target.

    JRC wow! Great skills.

    And now for the dreaded Tony Mowbray half time talk.
  22. yellowsubmarine

    Leicester away

    Has been a decent half for Rovers tbh. Took us awhile to get going. Malgoire, Nyambe looked good. Fisher, not tested much, but looked very confident with his kicking. Our best chance came from Nyambe with the cross which Armstrong was just a few centimetres away from scoring.

    They are down to just 12 players. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wigan_Athletic_F.C.#Current_squad

    Congrats to Kipre on being a Premiership defender. We never stood a chance when a Premiership club hijacks our deal. Let's move on, hope Mowbray has a plan B!

    This is what happens when you give Mowbray good money to spend. Looking at Brentford's model, they seem to be able to raise a player's value in 2-3 years and then sell them and get back what they paid for and more. Doubt Brereton is anywhere near £5 million currently.
