    Academy & U21s

    I think the problem originally for Zimba and then Burns is that the U18s didnt have a recognised striker before the season. Burns is a RW and will revert back to one next season, and the likes of Sam Durrant, Zak Gilsenan and Brandon Lonsdale are not going to lead the line as they are all too small... so Zimba was forced into the #9 role due to his size. And despite his goals has generally struggled with the physicality and role of it. Shame for him as I think he would have walked a contract had he been allowed to stay a bit deeper.

    Burns (and others) was told during the week that he was getting released. If you didn't know you can tell by his body language after his goals and also the final whistle. This cup run is hopefully going to save and make his career.

    Swansea City home

    Is there anything more satisfying than scoring in the 95th minute against a team that has time wasted, faked injuries and been general tools for 40+ minutes. I thought (their) Gallagher looked outstanding. Brereton with a positive cameo too. Sad thing is everyone knew we would be coming out of these home games with zero wins.
  4. Surprised and delighted to be winning. It's amazing how perspective is different, we look solid 90% of the time and a drubbing waiting to happen the other 10% I'd get Buckley off for Gallagher and play it long with Arma and Samuel on the wings, they seem a mess dealing with long balls. Also, I personally thought Raya did everything right for the goal as he had all the angles covered yet Armstrong scored the only way he could, did anyone expect that from him, excellent goal, no blame. Trying to forget that we were 1 goal up here last season at half time, then conceded four in the second half...

    Would you sign Christian Walton

    If "No" doesn't win this poll by a considerable landslide, I'm deleting my account as I will have completely lost faith in all of us!

    First team squad 20-21

    So after 3 years in charge we are going into this summer with only 6 start worthy, under contract, players 🤮 the best of which is crocked till 2021. Keeping all of Nyambe, Lenihan and Travis this summer is simply a dream unfortunately. Most of those listed U18's will be out of contract in a few months too, and basing retained numbers off history, at least half will be released. Unless we make a drastic decision... The League 1 tour of shame will be resuming in August 2021.

    Home V Fulham 08/02/2020

    Besides Johnson and Gallagher, I thought Downing was also poor and has largely been poor when deployed as the LW position. I do like him in CM, but played wide highlights his age and mucks up the formation. Once Rothwell is back I feel we will settle on Travis-Downing in CM.

    Home V Fulham 08/02/2020

    We are 7 games away from having our £12 million "strike force" go the entire season without either of them getting a single goal at Ewood. Sack the manager.

    January transfer window 2020

    Not making signings is pathetic. Not shipping/loaning out ANY of Smallwood, Samuel, Mulgrew, Brereton, Chapman, Buckley, is inexcusable incompetence. Mowbray, Waggo, Venus (Lowe and Benson - just because) out.

    If FFP is as dire as they will use the excuse now, then why the actual fuck have you opted to recall Mulgrew and his £16k a week, and not loaned out expensive flops/backups on loan like Smallwood, Samuel, Chapman and Brereton. That's what, minimum (generous) £50k a week. Clueless.

    The first person to write "give Mowbray the summer window" should be banned and/or committed to the asylum.

    According to the SSN website tracker, we are the only club in the entire league not to have made a signing this month. I... am... flabbergasted!

    Hearing similar positive rumblings around Ewood. Going to be a late one. Some disbelief regarding this Chelsea lad and Maddison was us, but now Hull have shipped out their wingers he will be going there. Maybe as many as 5 outgoings too. Freeman 🤞

    Cannot wait for a transfer window when Mowbray is no longer our manager!

    Sums him up. Every other club is frantically trying to do business and Uncle Tony is here daydreaming about the window closing. He's just lucky we're actually playing Middlesbrough this weekend so his "focus" can be taken both ways!
