    Summer 2018 Transfer Thread

    I'm going to suggest a few Aussies worth looking at that based on seeing them play many times. These players fit the young and hungry mould Mowbray has mentioned and posses the talent to become solid championship players and could further develop into decent premier league players in the future. Jamie Maclaren: I've mentioned him previously but if you are looking for a zippy striker that has a decent conversion rate than he would represent excellent value. https://www.transfermarkt.com/jamie-maclaren/profil/spieler/173591 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Maclaren Brandon Borrello; Can play on either wing and after acclimatizing to European conditions, started becoming a feature of the starting Kaiserslautern team in Germany. Admittedly the team got relegated to the German 3rd tier this season but he is a really decent young player in the making. He would adapt well to the english game as he has pace and is a real tenacious player. Can play on either wing and scores goals as well. https://www.transfermarkt.com/brandon-borrello/profil/spieler/293592 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brandon_Borrello Daniel Arzani Has recently been named A-League young footballer of the year and has been called up to the preliminary Socceroos world cup squad at 19 years of age. This guy is still a bit raw but it is clear for everybody who has seen him play he has huge potential. Creates goals and also contributes he would be one to pounce on now while his value is attainable and would almost definitely spike in value under the right conditions. This one is a bit of a risk but in my view a risk worth taking. Can play on either wing or as a central attacking midfielder. https://www.transfermarkt.com/daniel-arzani/profil/spieler/399997 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Arzani I don't expect everyone to get excited about the above players as they are still relatively unknowns but i have mentioned/suggested Aaron Mooy and Tom Rogic in the past prior to them establishing themselves in europe and i think the above players have the potential to achieve a similar status as decent players in the upper tiers of English Football.

    Summer 2018 Transfer Thread

    I mentioned this about a week ago on the Facebook page but we should consider signing Jamie Maclaren from hibs if we can. He’s actually on loan from Darmstadt (Germany) and just scored another 3 against Rangers. He played for my Hometown club Brisbane Roar for a couple of seasons and is a real goal poacher. Scored a heap of goals for us. With Dack as the supply line he would score plenty and would feed off Graham as well. He’s at the right age to start hitting his peak. He’s also a former Rovers youth player to boot!

    Not sure where to put this but I thought this was a very interesting read, especially towards the end https://medium.com/@jacopopiotto/show-dont-sell-70fb07066bc4#.kznm1uked

    Advert In Indian Press

    Could we not at least place the ad in the comments section on each article of the website? That would be free and whilst not hitting as large an audience it would at least get the word out.

    Even after everything that's happened after the last six years reading this thread has made me thoroughly depressed. Anger is not a sufficient word to be used when describing how I feel about what has been done to this club. I started following Rovers in the 94-95 season as I was a striker by trade in my playing days and was memorized by Shearer. You could call me a band wagoner but i grew up following Serie A due to my Italian heritage and a born and bred supporter of AC Milan but there was something about Rovers being a small town club taking it to the big boys that sucked me in. I have never been to Blackburn or even England but have been an avid supporter of Rovers ever since, riding the highs and lows of relegation, promotions, cup runs etc. Buying shirts from the club shop and wearing it, spreading the word of this great club to lesser educated footballing folk here in Australia was something i took pride in. Now, when asked who i support and respond with Rovers i find myself saying it with sadness. I barely get to watch them anymore and have stopped purchasing merchandise etc as my form of protest from afar. It just makes me sick that the league's governing body could not only allow this to happen but continue to allow this to happen. These parasites are sucking the life out of club and there is basically nothing we can do to stop them. I'm proud of the people like Glen Mullan, Madon, amongst many others for sparing their valuable time to fight the good fight as well as others that are boycotting but turning up for protests etc. The protests may or may not achieve much but at the very least it brings Rovers supporters together in a sign of unity that basically says we may not be able to do anything at this point but you (the owners and anyone linked with them) are not one of us and we will be here long after you leave. For the people who don't protest fair enough I get it, from my position I have the comfort to know you will still be there after these scum leave. Anyway sorry about the long winded post but as mentioned above i had an overwhelming wave of depression reading this thread and thought by typing out my thoughts i may feel a little better. Sadly it hasn't really helped. RTID

    That was me donner, had big wraps on him. Still do. Also suggested Tom Rogic who is at Celtic but there's no chance we'll get him now either as his is tearing it up there for them

    Not sure if this has been mentioned or not but falling in to the 'we must hit the Venky's in their own backyard' strategy, an idea could be to template a short, concise message about what Venky's have done to our club with a link to the venky's out webpage and cut and paste this to the comments section of every news article on every Indian newspaper website. Just basically spam the comments section with this templated comment multiple times if need be. I know this probably wouldn't make a huge difference but at least (a) It will raise awareness with the people of India ( It will be a cost-free exercise to further expose the Venky's for what they have done © another cathartic exercise for us as supporters to vent our anger over this nightmare. I say a templated comment that we could all use and agree on as we want to send a clear, unified message on what is actually happening. I know a high percentage of people won't actually read it but we are talking about millions of people potentially seeing this and having a read. Thoughts?

    Is there a head figure at the FA? I think the raising of awareness in India is the priority but alongside that I think the governing bodies need to be brought further into the spotlight. Rather than attacking the Umbrella of the FA, maybe there is some benefit to be gained by diverting attention to a specific individual(s) under this umbrella. Whether it be via protests, twitter trends, facebook, media etc we should demand a response and attention from this individual so it's on the record. I believe now is the best time for this due to the Indian article being released to the wider public and the spotlight being turned well and truly on the FA.
