    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Hope so, but it isn't as simple as that unfortunately. Palmer for example played quite a lot when Huddersfield got promoted and also played a bit at Derby who came 6th that season, and his loan to us only lasted a few months.

    Championship season 2019-20

    Agree with that, can't see the league being all that strong this season to be honest. Not expecting much from Huddersfield either. You'd imagine WBA and Cardiff will be up there. Quite hard to call apart from that - after all, none of last season's top three were in the top six the previous season (with Norwich and Leeds both bottom half if I remember correctly) so it's wide open.

    Kits 19/20

    Indeed - this is still one of my favourite ever Rovers shirts. How hard can it be!!??

    Dann was awful in the Premier League for us. He got smaller when he jumped and we didn't keep a clean sheet until March of that season. He looked like he wasn't bothered most of the time too. Granted the club was a total shambles and we had he who shall not be named as 'manager' getting rid of all our good, experienced defenders and replacing them with youngsters or absolute jokers like Bradley Orr. He’s clearly been much better at Palace and had some good seasons there, but I’d be surprised if he ever came back here.

    Pre-season 2019/20

    That was Bury supposedly, not Rochdale.

    Bennett will be in there somewhere, plus if he does intend to play three centre backs then we need much more depth there - those three you have at CB are our only senior CBs (and that's counting Williams, traditionally a LB). It'll be 4-2-3-1 I think.

    Premier League Stuff

    In season 17/18 a few clubs you'd consider a step up from Burnley in size and potential (Everton, Leicester, West Ham for example) changed manager and Dyche didn't get poached.....and that was when his stock was arguably at its highest, being the season they ended up 7th. After that I concluded he'd be there for a long time yet, and it's looking that way (unfortunately).

    Raya joins Brentford

    He was excellent in the home game v Brentford, that save onto the bar was amazing. They must have seen enough raw ability over the two games (albeit almost all good attributes only in the first) to decide there was enough to work with.

    I think one person did and they only compared the sales, saying we need to have a replacement lined up like we did in Robbo when Brad left. I don't recall anyone wanting to sell Raya before these links emerged either, in the second half of last season every second post seemed to be people saying we need experienced competition for him.

    I thought Gallagher was alright as well, albeit it's over two years now since he last played for us and haven't watched him since. If he does sign though what happens to Brereton? Third choice striker - and we only play one up front? Assuming neither him or Gallagher are considered as 'wide forwards', of course.....

    Bradley Johnson Signs.

    Rated him a while back at Norwich, haven't seen much of him since, hopefully we can get a good year or two out of him. Davenport looked decent when he grew into the game v Swansea on the final day, and that was his first league game for a year. So Travis, Davenport and Johnson as our main three CMs sounds good, Evans will probably stay so he can be fourth choice......you'd imagine Smallwood will leave.

    It wasn't a penalty for me. There was 'contact' but that's only because her foot hit the defender's leg as she pulled her own leg back to strike the ball. The defender was just running and didn't make any kind of challenge - harsh to be penalised for that.

    Would be disappointed to see Raya leave, at just 23 and after one full season at this level behind a soft-centred defence. Interesting to compare his two performances v Brentford last season. He was superb when we beat them at Ewood, that save on to the bar was one of the best we've seen at Ewood for years. Away from home he conceded 5 and made a horrendous decision to come out for the goal that made it 3-2 - but Brentford obviously saw enough over the two games overall to think he could be a very good keeper at this level with the correct coaching (presumably they have an experienced GK coach......). Doubt it'd happen anyway but would avoid Fraser Forster, remember at the time a couple of years back thinking how bad he looked before he got dropped, palming simple shots straight to strikers and taking an age to get down to low shots seems to ring a bell. Looked poor v West Ham too at the end of last season. It may have been his first game for 18 months, but there's probably a reason for that.

    Bennett will be here and he's very rarely injured, so he'll be starting. Especially with Nyambe being at the AFCON and therefore returning to training late - RB will probably be Bennett's for the first few games....

    You should take a leaf out of @Mattyblue's book and visit some other club's forums, you'd be amazed at how well-mannered and balanced (in addition to well-organised) this is in comparison to most. And to answer the question directly - yes, fans of every club will always give their honest opinion on potential signings, and whether they're in favour or not of the deal (if it's the latter, it doesn't mean they don't want them to succeed). It'd be strange if only Rovers fans out of the entire football world did that.
