  1. Well he did move, are you sure you were watching the game at Gigg Lane?
  2. And posters on here are being extremely harsh on Nuttall, he just had balls booted at his head for 90 minutes, which clearly isn't his game.
  3. Why are people surprised at Dack playing well? He's played well every single time he's put on the shirt. I'm not sure why he's here because he is way too good, he should be at the top end of the Championship at the very least. We didn't play particularly well but got the 3 points, that's pretty much it. Far convinced by Mowbray but he didn't do much wrong today. A good day all round.
  4. The next 4 games and Tony's upcoming appraisal

    His appraisal should be after every game and if we fail to beat Bury he should be sacked. In fact he should have been sacked weeks ago.
  5. Rochdale v Rovers Tuesday 7th Nov.

    I thought Whittingham had his best game in a Rovers shirt (by far) against Portsmouth. I see what you're saying but I don't think Whittingham is your man if you're under pressure, against Burnley he was pathetic, cowardly in fact.
  6. Rochdale v Rovers Tuesday 7th Nov.

    I think that Whittingham is very slow minded, he needs a few seconds to decide where he wants to pass it to (although the ball usually does goes where he wants it to go).
  7. Rochdale v Rovers Tuesday 7th Nov.

    In certain games, yes. At home against a team that came for a draw, I would play Whittingham. How many goalscoring chances does Whittingham create? Not many. I would just tell whoever is playing in midfield to give it to Dack as much as possible, but at least Harper has the energy to get up and down.
  8. Rochdale v Rovers Tuesday 7th Nov.

    He's a different player to N'zonzi, nowhere near as good on the ball but quicker and better physically. I don't rate Whittingham, he's an excellent passer & striker of the ball, but that is it. He can't create space for himself and has no awareness of where his teammates are, he needs a few seconds to think about what he's going to do with the ball when he gets it and needs loads of space to be able to do what he wants with it. He also looks like someone who doesn't want the ball and won't offer an outlet when a teammate is in trouble.
  9. Rochdale v Rovers Tuesday 7th Nov.

    There is just something about him that tells me he is going to be a good'un. Quick, big long strides, can get up and down, and carries the ball well. Remember he is only 17, whereas Tomlinson is 20 (I think). It was a strange signing and under normal circumstances he wouldn't get a look in, but I think he'd be a better bet than Whittingham & Evans in certain games.
  10. Rochdale v Rovers Tuesday 7th Nov.

    Another thing I will say is that Harper will be playing regularly in the Premier League in a few years time, he might not be ready yet but I'd give him a go in the league as there isn't really anyone keeping him out, is there?
  11. Rochdale v Rovers Tuesday 7th Nov.

    One positive is that Wharton won't be suspended for a league game... the sending off looked harsh to me, there is no way Wharton could have hurt the other player due to the (lack of) speed of the incident, Hill & Co. on the Rochdale bench should hang their heads in shame after their pathetic reaction to it ruined a decent game. Mowbray said that he was going to give some of the u23s a chance because of how well they were doing, yet only played 2 outfield players that have been playing regularly for the u23s, what was that about?
  12. Yet he signed 17 year old Harper, and chucked him into a big game away at Scunthorpe out of position , genius.
  13. Poll: Mowbray - stick or twist?

    Downing is decent, but is only on loan. Yes Chapman is a good player, but Mowbray started him once and then he got injured, hardly a good signing. I'm not a Bowyer fan but Mowbray's work in the transfer market isn't a patch on Bowyer's. Dack, Smallwood & Downing are hits, Samuel, Whittingham, Caddis, Hart, Gladwin, Harper & Antonsson are all misses imo, some of them being massive misses. Considering the resources available to Mowbray, the transfer window was a disaster.
  14. Poll: Mowbray - stick or twist?

    I'd say Smallwood is a decent signing but I agree with the rest, all awful. Yes, it is baffling, I think it is just because he isn't very bright and doesn't really know what he's doing.
  15. Poll: Mowbray - stick or twist?

    “To give people that we brought in the best chance to play in a position that best suits them,” Mowbray said when explaining the formation switch. He honestly thinks that Caddis' best position is right wing back , get him sacked!
