    ROVERS v Sheff Utd

    Mowbray has a record for getting a team promoted from the Championship to the Premier League.

    I like that team and set up. Sadly I think we've as much chance as seeing Shearer and Sutton starting tonight as we have of seeing that team.

    AFC Bournemouth v ROVERS

    I genuinely thought I was having a problem with my eyes when I watched the highlights this morning.

    AFC Bournemouth v ROVERS

    While no-one without insider knowledge can say for certain, I'm as confident as I can be that this isn't the case. The deal will become permanent in January. As regards to Rovers being able to cancel it if he gets seriously injured - I very much doubt that is the case as well. I can't see Forest agreeing to that. If he gets injured while he's here, it's our problem.

    Ake 20m too. If you include their bench it'll be over 100m I reckon.

    AFC Bournemouth v ROVERS

    Their starting eleven was definitely over 60. Lerma 25, Ibe 15, Cook 7, Ming's 8 for starters off the top of my head.

    Stoke vs Rovers MOTM Poll

    He's too old and can't play three games in a week.

    You are quite correct. But that was the best win under Venkys

    We won 3-2 at Old Trafford under Kean. *Corrected

    Meanwhile over at Deepdale....

    Did they get some 'Nearly Winners' medals? 😂

    Ben Brereton

    Some people seem to be writing him off already - based on a very limited number of minutes, being not match fit and playing out wide. £6/7m may be a lot to Rovers these days - but in the grand scheme of things it's not a big fee in the modern era.

    Ben Brereton

    Think it's obvious from what we've seen so far that he's not a winger - although hard to judge until he's got a few matches under his belt in all fairness. The stats also show we play quite a lot of long balls and rely quite a bit on Danny Graham with his hold up play and knock downs - and if he's fit, Graham starts. So I wondered if a 4-3-1-2 would ever be an option. Raya Nyambe - Lenihan - Mulgrew - Bell Bennett - Evans - Reed Dack Brereton - Graham The full backs would have to provide the width - but there is plenty of protection from that midfield three if they get caught out of position. Dack is pretty much a free-role, and then Brereton can play upfront with Graham. There are also several players in that side who can play in different positions if you need to alter the formation during a game.
  13. I went for Graham. Thought he was excellent personally with his hold up play, flick ons and knock downs. Saw a few people on the match thread suggest he was poor. Think they need to have a quiet word with themselves.

    Rovers v Villa - 15th September 2018

    https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/very-mixed-team-news-aston-15149625 The Birmingham Mail reporting 'Very Mixed Team News' for Rovers. Very mixed news. That's like being offered the opportunity to spend the night with any two women of your choice, but having the excitement dampened by the fact you've run out of Vimto.

    Bradley Dack

    What slightly concerns me - is the jump in offer. I'm hoping they've not been encouraged that either the club would accept a significantly higher offer, or the players agent has suggested he is keen on the move.
