    Quite sure that Fulham game was Saturday 3pm? But yep privilege to have seen those two superb goals.
  2. In fairness he came on in the 103rd minute, three minutes of football later it was 2-4 and we knew we were beaten, the game was done. I like Rothwell, from the very little we’ve seen of him. He’s got a drive and spark about him that not many others have. Will he give the ball away more than those who play safer passes? Definitely, but those same players don’t have the ability to glide past players and create things further up the pitch which it seems like Rothwell can. I’m not sure what his best position is (consequently I'm not saying I'd have him starting every game) but I think it’s fair to say he’s deserved more of a chance than he’s had (2 league starts is it?).

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Williams' horror shows at Preston and Wigan confirmed who's the worse of the two IMO. Bell without doubt needs to improve; as it stands he's not good enough if we want to move higher up the league, but there's more to work with and there are the odd glimpses which suggest there could be a decent player in there somewhere.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Apart from the autumn of the 14/15 season when he was excellent for a few games on the wing (left wing, IIRC), I think Marshall's best spell for us was at right back under Lambert. I don't think I'd have him there now though, I'd rather let Nyambe keep developing, even if he's been picking up a few injuries lately. He'd probably offer a bit more on the wing than some of what we've got (and is a genuine winger) but not sure....still think we can look elsewhere and do better.

    Rovers V Norwich 22/12/18

    The effort was there from us but the ability, in comparison to Norwich, wasn't. They were a good outfit, every player comfortable on the ball and they put some nice moves together. We don't have that many players comfortable on the ball but they all were. Both full backs were good today, Bell more like his first game. Nyambe did what he should be doing and is certainly capable of - getting forward and driving past players. Just needs work on his final ball. Some of Graham's hold up play was excellent. Dack quiet overall. Brereton was worryingly poor. If that was an academy player, the feeling would be that they just aren't ready yet, or that they may or may not make it. I know he came on out of position again, but even the basics weren't there. Another late goal conceded too..... Also - Rothwell isn't even getting off the bench anymore which is very harsh IMO. There's no way Palmer or Brereton were better choices to come on the wing than him.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Going back a few years but Andy Cole 01/02, Stead 03/04, Nelsen 04/05, Samba 06/07 just off the top of my head were all signed in January, the first two transformed our season and the latter two were unbelievably astute signings.

    I can't imagine Rothwell is happy having only started once (I think - Bolton away) in the league. Mowbray said he was like a pitbull ready to be let off the leash, that was a couple of months ago I think so I can't even imagine how he is now. I'd say to Rothwell "I'm going to give you a run of half a dozen starts, go out there and make it impossible for me to leave you out again". He's got technical ability, a spark and a drive that we don't otherwise have and I'd like to see him get a chance.

    Boro must be dire at the moment. Beaten 0-1 at home to Burton in the QF of the Carabao Cup.

    Good post. It's all well and good saying that you aim to be at this stage or that in however many transfer windows, but having more transfer windows doesn't necessarily make you stronger. It'd be great if it was that easy, but unfortunately it isn't. Mowbray's transfer record is mixed in terms of players who have gone in and made an impact on the team, with only Reed being a regular starter from this summer's signings. If Dack leaves say next summer, plus key players Graham and Mulgrew being a year older, then recruitment is going to have to be good. If this time next year we're challenging in the top six with a team that is better all over the park then the current one then great - Mowbray will have got it right and a mid-table finish this season would have been a good base to work from. What I don't want to happen is a year or two from now to be reading things like 'we're only seven points from the play offs with a game in hand'. We had enough of that in Bowyer's second season when the previous 18 months had shown that we simply weren't capable.

    Rovers v Birmingham-Saturday ,December 15th

    We won't do anything of note in this league if we're chucking away points v 10 men last week, and against a team that looked devoid of any belief and as though they couldn't wait to get off the pitch and go home this week. We should have seen this out as a comfortable 2-0 victory. Raya - best staying on your line, never did Friedel any harm. He's won us plenty of points in the last couple of seasons but also cost quite a few goals. Otherwise he'll always have that eccentricity in him and be capable of moments like today, sort of like a lower league Hugo Lloris.

    Bentley, Duff, Santa Cruz, Jones, £17m-£18m certainly seems to be the magic price as Tom says.

    Indeed. And even if it's not racial abuse, it's absolutely embarrassing seeing groups of, for example, middle-aged men absolutely frothing at the mouth at players taking a throw-in, corner or whatever, who goes into a football stadium with that level of hate inside them? Bizarre.

    Just seen a clip of that. He's certainly short of a few brain cells.
