    Summer 2018 Transfer Thread

    Lets not forget we're going into a league, where champions Wolves paid £15.8m for Ruben Neves! Heck even Derby County paid £7m for Tom Lawrence!

    Charlton away April 28th

    Tony saying some players will be rotated (knocks, fatigue, beers etc) Maybe a chance to tinker too? Raya Downing - Lenihan - Williams Bennett - Whittingham - Smallwood - Bell Dack - Payne Armstrong Keep an eye out on Joe Aribo, thought he was different class at Ewood, hope we sign him this summer!

    Summer 2018 Transfer Thread

    Outs Antonsson - loan return I've liked Payne, and maybe I'd sign him if available on a free, but can return to Huddersfield on loan Chapman - Prove fitness before any deal Caddis Gladwin Ward Ins Central midfielder - Joe Aribo from Charlton please Striker - Target man type - Rudy Gestede esque Centre back Right back Armstrong back on loan (until Xmas, maybe League One is his level at the moment?)

    Doncaster Rovers 24th March

    The second pitch invasion was the one that was most frustrating! I just hope those that 'had to get it out of their system' did so last night and we can all enjoy the Oxford game from the stands! Some laughable attempts too....I saw one couple run on, slip, get soaked by a sprinkler, mud everywhere....only to be ushered off the pitch by a policeman! That said it shouldn't take anything away from what was a memorable night! My main feeling......RELIEF!!! Getting back at the 1st attempt was so important.

    Player of the Season 17/18

    Any of the names mentioned would be worthy winners! It’s nice to be having this kind of debate! So many years we’ve had little to choose from!

    A poll to run alongside the Official poll. Who is YOUR player of the season? I’ve shortlisted the main runners and riders, but feel free to add anyone else in the comments box.

    THE BATTLE FOR PROMOTION....WON.

    Grigg off injured at half time?

    THE BATTLE FOR PROMOTION....WON.

    For Wigan......a bit of rain in Bradford, a draw in the cup, then a win in the replay would make life very interesting. That scenario would give them 16 games in 52 days (not including the international breaks) virtually a game every three days.

    Rovers v Wigan

    When Morsy hacked at Dack, but he stayed on his feet, was a crucial moment. If he goes down, Morsy is off, picked the right pass, but the chance was wasted, a 3 v 2. Dare I say it, 3-1 it’s game over, 11 v 10 it’s game over. On the balance a draw the right result.

    Wimbledon v Rovers

    I don't know whether its been said already, but.... The atmosphere and event in Blues Bar last night was excellent. Credit to the club for putting it on. Will be hoping some more away games are being shown 'on beamback' between now and May.

    Walsall v Rovers

    Just bought my tickets, was going to go down this weekend but it'll obviously sell out! 2,600 Rovers fans, very impressive!! Saw on twitter earlier total away attendance this year stands at 29,700 29,700/number of away games 16 = 1,856 average away following this season! Yes, lots of local away games, but also a few sell outs. Fleetwood away for instance, I'm sure we could have taken double what we did.

    LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    League One 2016/17 (as of Feburary 5th 2017) 1. Sheffield United P 30 Pts 60 - Title Winners 2. Scunthorpe P 29 Pts 58 3. Bolton P 28 Pts 51 - Runners Up 4. Fleetwood P30 Pts 51 5. Bradford P30 Pts 50 6. Southend P29 Pts 46 9. Millwall P29 Pts 44 - Playoff Winners League One 2017/18 1. Wigan P28 Pts 63 2. Shrewsbury P29 Pts 61 3. Blackburn P30 Pts 59 4. Scunthorpe P31 Pts 54 5. Rotherham P30 Pts 50 6. Bradford P31 Pts 48 Shrewsbury and Wigan are having historic seasons, and setting a break neck pace. Rovers have 59 points from 30 games played, one less than Sheffield United had at this stage last season, they went on to get 100 points! Current pace Wigan 103 points Shrewsbury 97 points Rovers 90 points During the past decade 90 points would be enough to be promoted in 6/10 seasons Good enough to be Champions in 12/13 and 15/16 (last time Wigan won the division) Enough to be Runners Up in 07/08, 08/09, 09/10 and 16/17 (last season Bolton promoted with 86 points) 3rd Place finishes in 10/11, 11/12, 13/14 and 14/15 Long way to go yet, but you'd think if both Wigan and Shrewsbury do keep up this pace, then they deserve their promotion!
