  1. We’d probably get away with it in this game but it’s the bigger picture with Nyambe that’s more worrying. We should be doing everything we can to tie him down.
  2. Would be furious if Nyambe is dropped. He looked a big threat going forward at Bournemouth with his assist for Armstrong and he set somebody else up too with a cross from the right, can’t remember who. Asking him to be better going forward but then dropping him the next league game after he looks a threat in the final third? Makes no sense....

    Academy & U21s

    Dack posted a video on Instagram during the week of him and Butterworth on the bikes in the gym, they might be at a similar stage in their recovery maybe. It does feel like he’s been out forever though yep.

    I certainly wouldn't say Rothwell runs sideways; he's one of the most direct Rovers players I can remember. His first thought is always to drive forward when he gets the ball.

    Football Magazines

    I’ve still got probably around a dozen Calcio Italia magazines from between the early 2000s and about 2012. Used to get it every month. The ones from the early 2000s will be worth a few quid now I bet! Apart from that I get Four Four Two probably two or three times a year. It’s not cheap but it’s always a good read, and passes the time nicely on flights or long train journeys.

    Summer Transfer Window

    I’m glad that some players we’re after have said they want to get to the Premier League and have, by the sounds of it, pretty much challenged Mowbray as to whether he’s serious about getting promoted. For too long now we’ve had a mix of players who have had a brief taste of the PL and know they aren’t good enough and, primarily, players who are just happy to plod along in the Championship as they know that’s their level. Couple that with no urgency in the dugout and off the pitch and it’s no wonder we never challenge at all. It still winds me up now when I think about Gallagher’s Instagram post last Boxing Day - ‘10 unbeaten’ and a smiley face. This after two dire home draws and performances against Wigan and Birmingham which ensured we didn’t enter the play off spots. That said it all. For what it’s worth, under Mowbray I don’t think we’ll ever even enter the top 6 at any significant stage of the season - never mind go the whole way and get promoted. But a change in mentality and desire on the pitch would at least be most welcome. Of course first we’d have to actually sign said players and ‘get them over the line’ which seems incredibly difficult for us to do.......

    Indeed, they both like a trick but that's where the comparisons end; Rochina is a lot better than Palmer and has been a regular for years in one of the strongest leagues in the world.

    Two people think JRC will be world class? 🤣 I like him and think he'll be a good player for us, but that's one of the maddest things I've read on here - he's 21 and has played a handful of senior football matches!

    Parma late 90s were a great team yep, would love to have seen them in action. Buffon, Thuram, Cannavaro, Veron, Crespo, Chiesa.....unreal. Iconic names everywhere.

    Football Italia

    Never thought I'd see a Football Italia thread on here! I'm a big Italian football fan. Last few weeks I've been working my way through these - https://www.thetotallyfootballshow.com/feature/so-you-havent-got-any-football-to-watch/so-you-havent-got-any-football-to-watch-gazzetta-football-italia-last-lost-episodes/ . Some 'lost' Gazzetta episodes, then there are three more links at the top of that page to similar pages. Probably around 10/12 episodes overall. Not sure if there's any overlap between these and the ones on YouTube, I'll certainly be checking YouTube for others once I'm done with this batch. As a big Serie A fan who unfortunately was too young for the 90s heyday, they've been a brilliant watch. What a league - the 'seven sisters' as they were known were all littered with genuine world class talent.

    BRFCS TV - Nostalgia Thread

    A young Roy Keane discusses being linked to Real Madrid, Liverpool and Rovers. Can't see us being in a transfer battle with those two clubs again - so let's savour a time when that was the case.

    England

    Indeed, Alexander-Arnold should be one of the first names on the team sheet every game, no idea how he can be on the bench.

    Not often you see a captain of a Premier League club come out with something like this on Twitter.

    20/21 kit

    In the coronavirus thread you’ve been saying that businesses need to all start opening up now to ‘get the economy going’, ‘protect jobs’ etc etc. What’s the difference here? Apart from it’s a decision taken by Rovers so it must be staunchly defended.

    It does sound like Kipré is the better of the two, and I still hope we can get him in. But ‘brace positions’ certainly makes it sound like it’s a signing that most wouldn’t receive well at all, whereas Sarr would probably generate a ‘meh’, mixed reaction....don’t think anybody knows enough about him or has watched him enough to have a strong view either way.
