    (Too early?) January transfer window 2020

    seems to have recovered mentally at Celtic. Looks like a good goalkeeper again.
  2. Nyambe needs to stay at right back, I see little point debating it personally. Downing could be one we look to change before the window opens simply because he isn’t a natural left back. Teams will start to target him either in the air at the back post which understandably he struggles with or by someone quick cutting inside on him. Williams offers more solidity on crosses and Bell is actually okay 1v1. Neither are the answer long term and a new left back is needed in January. Until we get one id be sticking with Downing for the home games and would maybe consider away from home picking Williams if for.

    The Scott Wharton Conundrum

    Bring him back in January and send him on loan to a league 1 side

    Bradley Dack

    If a premier league club comes in and pays somewhere between £10-15 million then I think they’ll let him go. If it’s a championship club then we’ll either crank the price up or Dack could decide to go. I’m not sure that many premier league clubs will take the punt tbh he’s great for us in this league but I’m not sure he’s quick enough to make an impact I. The premier league but you have to understand he’s going to want to have a crack at it (I’d be worried if he didn’t). Dack has options; he can stay here become highest earner and get a decent release clause in his contract In case a prem club gambles on him. He can run his contract down and get picked up on a free by a prem club in 18months. Or he can try to leave in the summer at a slightly reduced price to whoever is willing to pay then, likely a championship team with a bit of money and try to get to the prem that way.

    He just needs to stick as close to the team that started last night as he can.

    Brentford (h) - the Mowbray love in!

    When the team was announced I was very surprised. Dropped Holtby, actually started Graham and not only didn’t play Bennett at right back he benched him. Suddenly I was looking forward to the game. we played so well in that first half and the game in general that it initially confused me as I didn’t think we had that in us. but a day later I’m thinking that it vindicates a lot of what gets said on here: Rothwell should start most weeks Graham is still our best striker and should start when fit Nyambe should be right back Benno is a squad player not a regular starter. Armstrong up top on his own doesn’t usually work We shouldn’t have spent so much money on strikers who shouldn’t be in the team. we shouldn’t have sold Raya and replaced with just Walton on loan. I thought Raya was incredibly composed in his distribution and made some top saves.

    Our Current Squad

    I really don’t think the way he’s being used helps at all. The lads being asked to be a holding midfielder for Holtby who himself doesn’t look like a natural cm. Hes not a sitting midfielder, he’s a box to box midfielder who can drive forward and get stuck in too, ideally I’d place him with a deep lying playmaker but I don’t think we have one (maybe Downing). Maybe someone like Davenport (if he was playing at the required level) would be a good fit for him.

    Leutwiler isn’t better than Walton at all. ive not seen enough of Lewis Thompson to make a judgement on him starting ahead of bell. Back 3 is an option for sure. Just hope that JRC is used as a wing back instead of Bennett.

    Brentford (h) - the Mowbray love in!

    Selection is tough for this one. There’s a few people who need to be dropped Bennett, Armstrong, Gallagher. A few who need dropping but we don’t have anyone else in their position, Walton & Bell. I felt the balance of the midfield was wrong on Saturday. I don’t think Holtby and Travis make a good pair. So maybe I’d go with Walton Nyambe. Lenihan. Tosin. Bell Travis. Davenport Rothwell. Dack. Downing Graham subs: Leutwiler, Bennett, Johnson or Evans, Holtby, Rankin-Costello, Brereton/Armstrong, Gallagher,

    Barnsley (h) - the Cauldron Of Hate part 2?

    A wins a win but wow we were so poor. We were largely outplayed by a Barnsley team with one win all season. Another baffling team selection Mowbray, Gallagher our wide again when it hasn’t worked before and makes literally no sense was a highlight. The Travis-Holtby partnership is very poorly balanced. The last substitution was a bit of a head scratcher too. All it does is delay the inevitable, what pleases me though that I think the ewood faithful finally turned on the manager. Lots of Mowbray sort it out chants and the crowd were very frustrated at 1-1 and 2-2.

    Ben Brereton

    I too am sceptical that Brereton will come good and that he has yet to make any real impression on me except vs a very poor Bolton side. With what we’ve already sunk into him i think it’s worth giving him another go when fit through the middle. Especially if we try to move the ball on the deck and use his movement in the channels.

    It’s quite hard to fit 2 number 10’s into the same team especially if neither are quick enough to play wide.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Problem with Holtby is he’s a 10 and the best player we had here before his arrival is a 10.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    He brought Samuel on with 10/15 mins to go, as essentially a right wing back. He was hopeless as you'd expect and to be fair I couldn't have a go at him because he was being asked to use a skill set he doesn't have. All this at a time when we were chasing the game. Thanks for reminding me about this because it made literally no sense.

    (Too early?) January transfer window 2020

    Yep. Wasn’t deemed able to play his position as well as our now 6th choice centre mid Richie Smallwood. Reed now starts for Fulham, good call that one.
