  1. Red button is a nice addition for midweek away games (and the odd Friday/Sunday game) but nothing beats being at Ewood. Also, for the cost, I think our season tickets still represent good value.

    ROVERS v Sheff Utd

    Sorry if this has already been addressed, but did we get to the bottom of what the little scuffle (Riverside towards the end) was all about?

    Rodwell signs

    We’ll have to wait and see. Worst case scenario is he flops and can be added to the pile with Wes Brown, Johan Vogel, Dino Baggio etc TM obviously believes he’s worth the risk.

    New Kits

    Derby and Hull both releasing (seemingly needless) 3rd kits. Are we due one too from Umbro? Not that we need one, but maybe the rumours of a Navy strip are true? On further inspection.... Bournemouth, Everton, Huddersfield, Derby, Hull, Werder Bremen, Schalke, PSV Eindhoven....even Salford City!! - All Umbro supplied clubs, have 3 kits....One is almost definitely coming!!

    New Kits

    As someone who works within the printing onto garment industry...... Why 10Bet couldn't have just used a navy background is beyond me. They could have had thousands of transfers produced in navy, that would have looked better on both the home and away kits!! Black on both? Its a real head scratcher! On another note, the yellow kit probably negates the need for a 3rd strip. That said, yellow or white shorts will likely be used away at Bolton, Brentford, Derby, Preston, Reading, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday

    Where are Rovers old grounds?

    The Leamington Street ground (near Sacred Heart RC Primary - my old primary school) must have had a hell of a slope!!

    Thursday deadline.

    Sounds simplistic, but I trust Tony Mowbray. He's earned that trust in the last 18 months, combined with the type of statements he's made, the civic events he's attended and the impeccable way he's conducted himself both on and off the pitch. I don't believe he's turned down a bigger budget to reduce the pressures on himself, but I do think he realises that the club is being rebuilt a brick at a time, and needs to be treat with kid gloves. You can't undo 7 years of mismanagement in a season at League One and a summer of over spending. The process needs to be more organic, particularly if the aim (which I think it is) is to get back into the Premier League. I'm sure signing players is relatively easy, agents and representatives must be calling morning, noon and night with players who'd love a chance to play for us. Getting the right player is another thing entirely. I think the way Mowbray dealt with Emnes and Joao (both of whom reportedly turned up late for training) set the tone on how he wants the club to be run in both the short and long term, similarly with the way Gladwin (who again reportedly became a bit of a ''bad egg'' in the camp last season) behaved. Re-signing Conway and Graham (model professionals) also reaffirm this stance. In Mowbray I trust......................In Mowbray WE trust.

    Intent and proof you'll be rewarded if your performances merit it. No complaints from me. Also hope the release clause has gone up!
