    Loan Window

    Antony Pilkington is available on loan from Cardiff. He's fit and would probably relish the opportunity of returning to his roots.

    Carlisle Away

    I totally agree with every word. It was a great night's entertainment and well worthwhile making the effort to go. The only thing I'd add is that defensively we were woeful at times and it was 'only Carlisle'. Defend like that in the league and we'll get punished.

    I've previously given you the benefit of the doubt before chaddy but you really are just a d1ck. I apologise for the 'personal comment' and prepare myself for the usual nonsense.... I've seen him in the treatment room at Brockhall with his belly over the top of his shorts, have you?

    No and moreover its' a ticking time bomb before Graham is sidelined through injury: he's over weight and nursing dodgy knees. I was amazed he lasted yesterday. Then what?.........Rudi Gestede on loan anybody?

    Thursday deadline.

    Wharton needs competitive games under his belt to develop further, he's not going to get that warming the bench.

    Pre Season Matches

    I and many others don't need the Everton friendly to gauge a view: without some fire power up top and creativity and pace down the flanks and through midfield in general, we're in the sh1t. That's a fact. How the likes of Caddis, Whittingham, Gladwin and to a lesser degree, Conway and Evans are allowed to seriously deplete our salary budget is totally beyond me.

    Whittingham didn't do anything period and is the stand out candidate for criticism (IMO of course!)

    Anybody know when Tony Mowbray and the first team squad are back at Brockhall after Austria?

    Dunny leaving his role at Rovers

    To set the record straight, Dunny has left to concentrate on his property development interests with Gary Flitcroft. That is fact. I wish him well, he'll always be a Rover, just like us. I can't believe some of the nonsense I read on here.

    Thursday deadline.

    That's a decent shout. He needs to dispense with the need to wear gloves (can you ever imagine Shearer wearing a pair?). A small thing but if I were a centre half marking him, I'd stick one on him early on because you'd suspect he was a soft touch. It would also be handy to have another French man in the team to keep him company!

    I agree Biz, a bit like a 'poor man's Dalglish'. I feel we haven't seen the best of Dack yet by a long chalk. If only we had a central midfielder who could play a bit and a bit of flair and pace down the flanks. Under those circumstances, I think Dack would be deadly playing either in the '10' role or as half of a front 2, if we were to play 442.

    ....And get our season tickets bought!!!

    ...but twenty to thirty million quid cash per season in making up the working capital defficiency! That's not now the case JHR is it? Let's see what the close season brings but count no chickens, I agree!

    I agree bob, I wouldn't go all out in the first year either. I feel that rather than fill the squad out with the likes of Gladwin, Whittingham, Caddis and co. (who should all be gone btw IMO) we should sign a few majors in key positions (centre half, midfield playmaker and a tried and tested pacy, tricky winger (Harry Chapman type) and a younger 'Danny Graham' type centre forward, who are all going to prominently feature in our starting eleven. The remainder of the squad should be made up of members of this season's U23s. I've only seen them play a couple of times but think there are some potential gems amongst their numbers. Next season, some of them should be given the opportunity to develop as part of the first team squad. I'm absolutely convinced that if early season ticket sales are good, Mowbray will be backed.
