    Season Tickets 2018/19

    Pretty sure we are paid extra by Sky for this. Not per match like a live game but overall TV money we get from them. Seem to recall that the TV Deal increased in value because of this coming in

    Bell vs Williams

    Bell for me. Think I've posted this somewhere similar but i'll repost it. when you break it down I think Bell is the better left back. Bell is better going forward, better dribbler and crosser of the ball. Bell is quicker. Bell is better in possession IMO. I believe Bell is a better 1v1 defender than Williams is, I think Williams gets skinned quite a lot. I often think Williams gets caught out of position a bit so not sure there's much difference there Williams is better in the air. Williams is more likely to put his body on the line for the cause. When going forward, Williams will underlap more and drives inside with the ball, whereas Bell sticks wider and can go on the outside When we signed Williams I remember Andy Cryer saying on twitter that he did well for Bristol City as a left sided CB in a back 3 but wasn't good enough as a left back or a centre back. Thats interesting for me as I see him as something similar, maybe being more of a Centre Back than a Left Back. With Bell the main criticism i've heard around me is that he doesn't get forward enough, but considering that he's sort of readjusting to playing in a back 4 having spent the last few years as a wing back in a 5 I can cut him some slack on this. Since Bell has come into the team he's done well and would be unlucky to dropped but Tony does seem to like Williams so we'll have to wait and see. I'd certainly stick with Bell and Williams is good to have on the bench as he covers two positions.

    Not sure if Davenport is fit yet. Hip flexor injury could mean all sorts of things.

    Rovers v Villa - 15th September 2018

    Graham can't move though, he can hold the ball and bring people into play but he's mainly effective when he's not isolated on his own. To say playing without Palmer, Dack or Rothwell as a 10 is crazy is nonsense considering the Brentford game where both Palmer and Rothwell played out wide. Think its fair to say Villa aren't anywhere near the level of Liverpool but I take your point about Dack. I've changed my mind i'd go with Brereton up top, Dack on the bench.

    Rovers v Villa - 15th September 2018

    If we're going to be on the backfoot most of the game Bennett in that position makes us more sound defensively. Nuttall was a passenger in the Brentford game so Dack dropping deep could give us an out ball and get us going on the break. Obvs not his best position but better than benching him - though maybe after his off the field shtick he deserves to be dropped to the bench.

    Rovers v Villa - 15th September 2018

    4-2-3-1 - Dack as a false 9 Raya Nymabe Lenihan Mulgrew Bell Evans Reed Armstrong Bennett Rothwell Dack Subs: Leutwiler, Williams, Smallwood, Conway, Palmer, Brereton, Graham Notes: We're going to be under the cosh in this so setting us up similar to the brentford game is a good way to go. Vs Brentford Bennett was very effective defensively stopping them playing out from the back, now I don't know if Villa try to play the same way, if so then same again. Graham to be used as an impact sub

    Pickford Gomes Stones Maguire Walker Henderson Lingard Shaw Alli Rashford Kane Change from the 3-5-1-1 that they played a the world cup. Get someone to sit next to Henderson (could even play Dier). We really are short in CM.
  9. See i agree I don't see Williams as being much better Defensively. The one area that he's better is in the air. I don't think his positioning is better I don't think his passing general ball control is better I don't think he's a better 1v1 defender than Bell. Bell is clearly better going forward. I'd stick with Bell but I think Tony will go back Williams after the international break

    Dunn I think would be a good person to warn him of the perils of his current lifestyle

    The club didn't have to stand by him after his initial offence but they did. They even covered it up for him in public. Mowbray has stuck his neck out for him and he's initially repaid that by knuckling down and taking his game to the next level . He got off lightly with just community service (he assaulted a police officer ffs!) then he didn't do his sentence. Which he's presumably lied to the club/ Mowbray about doing. He's had numerous warnings which he's just ignored. It's real F you to the club. This needs to be a wake-up call for the lad. He simply has to do his community or he's going to prison next time. But more than that he's needs to sort his priorities out now before he's telling some lads in a bar in Marbella about how he could've played in the premier league and how good he was in league 1 in the 17/18 season. Mowbray has stuck his neck out for him again and it should be the last time. Next time he gets himself in trouble he should be on his own. We can all guess as to why he's done this. If I was Mowbray I would be asking the lad to take a long hard look at the people around him.

    Like you say you'd agree that the deal is agreed at both ends its just on Boro getting bodies in first. Not sure what the ruling is on this deadline can you sign someone subject to a medical or is it a case of everything has to be done in principal by 5

    If the rumour about Albert Adomah going to Boro is correct then I think we could well be getting a 5 minute warning before 5pm

    Thought this was the case with most loans to teams lower down the leagues
