    If someone had told me before the kick off that Travis would be involved in a sending off and that the scoreline would be 5-0, I would have bet the farm on us being the losers. I thought Lenihan looked good today. He is clearly benefitting from partnering such a class act as Adarabayio, and in particular his distribution today was much calmer, more assured and most importantly the ball was played intelligently into feet.

    In that case, one would absolutely expect them to sack him. If your theory is correct, his continued employment is surely untenable.

    Probably weighing up whether to take a punt on Smallwood.

    Player of the year (so far)

    Interestingly, not a single poster has mentioned Travis at all. Not even in anyone's top three which is surprising.

    Let's hope one or two of them make it, because our Indian friends certainly ain't buying any!

    Barnes is a Tosin Adarbayio type. He benefitted recently from a spell at Marine FC playing against a more rough and tumble set of strikers than he is used to. He is still only 18 and I can see him having a decent career. He is a bright, hard working, lovely lad with a good local supportive network around him. He is very much the modern silky type of defender who was a skilful attacking goal scoring school footballer a few years ago.

    Enjoyable game tonight. Sam Barnes is doing well, in answer to the above post. Tall, athletic and decent pace, he is a modern ball playing centre half. Luke Brennan is one of the younger lads and made another good cameo late on. He is a winger in the old fashioned sense. Likes to get to the byline and cross from there. Reminds me of Chris Waddle and one to watch I think. Lyons was nice and tidy and both fullbacks worked hard; Sam Hart too. Interesting to see Ritchie play the full game. I spotted Dunny watching and could definitely see a move to Blackpool on the cards for Smallwood. Presumably he played for the shop window. Nice to see Derek Fazackerley too. He is,at Oxford I believe so possibly checking a Brighton player.

    January transfer window 2020

    Garner used to get down the by line, either side as he was two footed, and put good balls in too. Sellars and Ian Miller were decent crossers as well.

    I covered that by writing that they are already extremely wealthy. This wealth, combined with an ingrained lack of ambition and fear of performing at a higher level entirely negates the lure of a promotion bonus. It isn't 1983 at Rovers anymore. They are being paid more than they could possibly spend compared to the likes of, for example Baz Rathbone and Terry Gennoe. Both of whom would have given their right one to have a crack at the top flight by the way. The hunger simply isn't there.

    I've had something of an epiphany of my own over the festive period (and there are no wise men in my version). I strongly suspected we would somehow contrive to end up with a ridiculously low points tally in the last three games, after all we were beginning to flirt dangerously with the promised land of play off glory. I am now firmly of the opinion that Mowbray (and by extension most of his players) don't actually seek promotion. Although this is anathema to us supporters, it makes perfect sense from their point of view. The manager is well paid. He has a good contract and doesn't seem unduly pressured to gain promotion. It seems that he waved away an offer of additional funding some months ago as he prefers a slow build. I am unaware of a similar precedent in football. He isn't premiership management material and knows it. Promotion would end his reign quicker than marginal progression. His personal aim this season in my opinion is a better points tally / final league position than last year. Job done. As regards the players, who amongst them would cut it in the top division? Therefore who amongst them genuinely desires promotion? Bennett? Downing? Graham? Johnson? Evans? Williams? Other than our younger contingent of Lenihan, Nyambe, Travis, Armstrong and perhaps one or two more, who else could be said to be ambitious to play at a higher level? These are already wealthy young men. There are often only slight differences in pure ability in the top two flights; much of the marginal gains come down to ambition, pride and desire. We have all worked with talented but laid back, unambitious people I'm sure. Why would footballers be any different. I know for a fact that Ben Marshall drove everyone at Ewood mad with the way he squandered his ability when he was here. They simply couldnt get through to him after having very high hopes for him. Really drove the staff nuts. It has to come from Mowbray and the players and too many of the current employees are on easy street and don't want to upset the status quo. Now that I have reconciled myself to this belief, everything slots into place and the scales have fallen from my eyes. It is clear to me why we played as though we were happy to lose today and it is also clear that we will not gain promotion under the current regime come hell or high water.

    Buckley was an absolute star in the under 23s. He has lovely technique and could probably play anywhere. He needs a good number of games in the first team to really put a marker down. He isn't particularly quick but has similar pace to the likes of Dack , Brotherston or Sellars whereby he can accelerate and body swerve well. He reminds me more of Simon Barker in style than anyone else for those that remember Barker. He is certainly on the frail side but so was Sellars. From footage I have seen, Bryan Douglas also seemed frail but was obviously a genuine superstar in a brutally physical era. (Not that I expect him to have the career that Duggie had obviously ). Buckley can be the real deal if Mowbray is prepared to persevere and allow mistakes by him.

    I think that was Martin Chivers if memory serves. Clive Allen was also there and Chris Hughton too.

    I wore my Garner one yesterday funnily enough. I played (and beat) my Burnley supporting ex-boss at Squash whilst wearing it. He is the same age as me (late forties) so remembers all too well the pain inflicted on his lot by Garns. He made several disparaging remarks 😁

    He reminds me quite strongly of Jason Wilcox in terms of his physique, movement with the ball and crossing ability, albeit on the right hand side

    I see that young Raheem trotted out the familiar "I'm sorry I used violence, that's not who I am" line which is always used when a person loses their temper and assaults another. Unfortunately, actions speak louder than words and I'm afraid that that is exactly what he is. Behind his very carefully cultivated and heavily managed public persona, Sterling has proved himself capable of unprovoked violence against a colleague. In many, many other walks of life this would be considered a matter for the police. The victim is apparently left with a cut around the eye and if that was my son I wouldn't be happy at all.
