  1. The January 2018 transfer thread

    Now come on BDS don't be silly. If this was true, which it isn't, splashing 300k on a defender with 50 appearances in the Indian league is hardly good business. It would be an awful move.

    Having been unfortunate enough to click on links to the Shrewsbury and Oxford forums in the past week I'd like to take this time to thank all those involved in making this page a place that doesn't give you a migraine and isn't somewhere that makes you feel like you have clicked back into 2004. Cheers fellas.
  3. The January 2018 transfer thread

    It would be great if we got all three in summer once promoted. I think that's a pipe dream though

    Maybe so Tony but MGP blessed us with some fine football over the years! What a left foot
  5. The January 2018 transfer thread

    It is all starting to resemble "normal" again in terms of Rovers isn't it JH? We are linked with players, we chase them, we get them. Barring a few in summer in which most of us said was indicative of bad planning - something TM came out and admitted, saying he had to simply build a squad as quickly as possible from players he knew. Now it seems he and the scouting team have got a plan in place for the remaining 6 months. I'm excited about the Payne transfer. He was excellent against us when we went to Oxford. I found myself watching him a fair bit and for such a young lad he had a commanding presence about him. I can only hope he, Armstrong & Chapman are on the "to buy" list should get promotion. Or should I say when we get promotion. As for all this "what Salop are up against" business it's remarkable how we are once again being accused of buying our way out. We have hardly splashed the cash in either window, instead operated shrewdly on loans, cheap end of contract acquisitions and the odd money transfer which has proven to be a fanastic success - Dack. Any fan that begrudges us for that is simply bitter.

    Will you two take your battle of the thesauruses elsewhere! It's like watching two chumps from University Challenge engage in a pissing contest. Besides, Meadows will always win Dunnfc, he has a masters in making himself look like a convoluted weirdo

    Williams is one of our weaker players. If Bell has anything about him he can unseat him very easily.
  8. The January 2018 transfer thread

    Mowbray is addressing our issues very well. Our left hand side has been poor most of the season. I'm less than convinced with Williams and can only assume he's fearing for his place after this signing. Unless, of course, the dreaded 3 at the back comes into play........... Now for another central midfielder and if you can get 4 quid for Elliot Ward snap their hand off. Maybe throw in Gladwin too for a BOGOF deal.

    All 800 of them. Big club. They have all us Blackburners concerned don't forget..............
  10. Shrewsbury Town - 13/1/18

    The demographics of the town has changed in so much that demand simply hasn't kept up. With ever rising prices (a pint of lager in the Beehive, Cherry Tree is £3.80!!!!!) and wages not rising with it has left areas like Blackburn flagging behind in terms of disposable income.
  11. Adam Armstrong

    Not paid to talk about players but assured enough in his ability to spot talent to tell us how much of a failed signing Armstrong is. Weirdo.
  12. Adam Armstrong

    You are like a broken record. You've had an explanation to what he brings but now you have reworded your question and gone again. Armstrong scored 20 goals in 40 games last time he played at this level and under Mowbray. His record for Barnsley & Bolton, both struggling teams in the Championship, is irrelevant as he is playing in League 1 now. He has form with Mowbray and form in this league. He's also won major tournaments at international youth level. If you are expecting us to sign league and cup winners in our current predicament then you are pissing in the wind. Your request of an assured forward that has consistently done it at a higher level shows your delusions. Who do you think will come here with that sort of record?
  13. Shrewsbury Town - 13/1/18

    Bolton Road way there isn't a single pub until you reach Ewood. With the Moorings, Infirmary and now Aqueduct all shutting. You have to wonder, especially with the Aqueduct, how much of it was down a decline in trade as the fan base went down. There's also the Ewood Arms which is now shut. That entire route has been shut down which makes a mockery of our "going down the Bolton road" song, really. The town centre itself is picking up. The Blakey Moor development is going to help. The town centre has some nice pubs around the Town Hall, the Drummers Arms & Tiki Monkey are small but decent stop offs. It does need investment though as you are right, Darwen does outclass it.

    That's a disservice to Blackburn. There's quite a nice little walk to Ewood with a few pubs on the way. Granted not as many as years gone by. If you want to stay around the ground the Fox & Hounds seems to be the sole survivor otherwise getting the train from Blackburn to Cherry Tree and walking that way will make a good journey. There's 4/5 pubs down that route always fairly full on match days, even now.
