    Academy & U'21's

    Give him a few games at u21 and see how he does. There is not a cat in hells chance of Tony promoting an under 18 straight into the first team. If he stands out at that level then put him on the bench as an incentive and tie him down. I don't understand why he hasn't been promoted to u23s if he is so highly thought of. What happened to the lad everton or leicester nicked off us. How's he doing

    Time wasting

    A few weeks ago I read that a top flight game between Burnley and Cardiff had the ball in play for a grand total of 40 something minutes. Today, Rotherham came and wasted as much time as possible to the point that it's not a tactic but embarrising. Is it time to review the laws on time wasting and what do people suggest for changes to the game regarding this issue. Something has to be done. It's just not acceptable

    Rovers vs Rotherham

    I thought that was a thoroughly entertaining if not extremely frustrating afternoon. Rodwell and lenihan were superb all afternoon and compliment each other well. Nyambe also made a big difference and added some balance when he came on. Hopefully he will be starting the next game. I can't work out bell. He just seems to casual. Like he's having a kick about with his mates. I think he needs Abit more urgency about him. Smallwood, excellent. Palmer again, didn't play badly but doesn't seem to blend into to the team. Dack was man marked the whole game but he should be coming to expect this now. Was very ineffective up until Rotherham scored and missed a good chance. Remember form is temporary, class is permanent, so not to worried. Took his goal well and had some dack-esque moments Graham was poor in front of goal again. He really needs to start putting these chances away. Overall play was ok but he should have scored at least one. Rothwell made an impact when he came on and I feel Tony's only mistake today was not making the changes a little earlier. Brereton has the crouch vibe about him. Because of his size he looks clumsy ( I know what I mean ). He provided a good assist and did well when he came on. Adam Armstrong was superb. What a performance and fully deserved his man of the match. His first touch was out of this world all game. And finally, Rotherham. They where well drilled, efficient and worked hard. I can see why alot of teams would struggle against there size and organisation. A couple of decent players to, however the sheer amount of time wasting was an embarrassment to the club, the fans, and sport as a whole. We pay to be entertained. We want to see the ball in play and two teams compete to see who comes out on top. Time wasting from the first kick is a disgrace and something seriously needs to be done about this. Another day we win at a canter but it wasn't meant to be. We learn and we go again COYB

    Rovers vs Rotherham

    Just paid 25 quid sit in bburn end because all week I have been on the e-ticketing and they are supposedly sending me an email to change my password. Everyday I have been on for 7 days and still no email. It's bad enough having to pay it. When it's their fault it's even worse. I did the same against millwall. Anyone else had this problem. Anyway I've had me moan COYB 😁

    I wasn't there against Oxford but i was there , on the pitch, against Doncaster and it was the best feeling I have had as a Rovers fan and one I will cherish for the rest of my life. Like I say, I wasn't there against Oxford but I 100% would of been on the pitch to celebrate the rare moment. In 20 odd years of going down to ewood I have never seen a pitch invasion and looked on enviously of other clubs running on to there own pitch and celebrating. It was a one off game and if you can't just take the occasion for what it is and enjoy it then I wouldn't give two hoots if I upset, offended or whatever your problem is. Years and years of divided fans , poor managers, half hearted footballers with nothing to even clap. I applaud any fan that made the day a celebration. If you where on the pitch I hope you sang, danced and had an amazing day.

    FA CUP

    What a horrible way to lose a game. Harringay put some real effort in and deserved a reply

    You could argue Kevin Davies did better , earning himself an England cap. David may was in the treble winning squad and I should imagine won a few trophies in between.

    FA CUP

    Just got in. Do I watch haringey or Sheffield derby. Choices. Decided to give the fa cup a go. Just seen a dog in the stand with a harringay scarf on. Maybe it's time to re open the dog for a quid debate down at ewood 😂

    Rovers vs Rotherham

    Beat me to it. Maybe having Tony's hand forced can unlock the potential we really have and it's a chance for other players to break up the players Tony sees as guaranteed starters and earn the shirt for themselves. It could also show how right Tony has been all season but either way it makes for an interesting game tomorrow and with all the respect in the world you couldn't ask to play better opposition at home to change it up and hopefully play a few more artists. We are going to need them to unlock what will be a stubborn well drilled team.

    Dack isn't going to Spurs and I'd be surprised if wba pay the money we would want for him. Ethan ampadu would be an excellent loan signing for any team in this league. We should be looking at him

    Always thought he looked like he had something when he was here. He went back to Swansea and was one of there best players before being relegated. I watched reading twice this season and he was the best player on the pitch. Don't m ow about attitude etc but he's quick, skillfull and exactly what we need
