    Honestly I've not been this pleased with a signing since Brett Emerton and (later) Benni McCarthy. I was going to say "excited", but I'm a grown man now and no longer care anywhere near as much as I did 16 & 13 years ago, and we're also no longer a European chasing Premier League team. But I'm as excited as I'm going to get. Cracking interview too! Already has a chant and will become an instant fan favourite I'm sure!

    Hopefully that is kind of the point. 😂

    Lewis Holtby

    I'd say with almost 100% certainty that Smallwood is gone when his contract expires summer (not sooner). Sounds obvious I've heard his attitude is beginning to stink up the place (he "apparently" point black refused to play in the Lancs Cup match last week when the likes of Nyambe, Chapman and Graham etc played). He is on the contract of his life, has already refused to go out on loan and will be taking said wage for the next 9 months before he plateaus into lower L1 next season. No chance he gets a new deal at present... rightly so. His one year improved extension has simply been a disaster. Next summer we will have Evans as our only "proven" cm who isn't either possibly too old (Johnson, Downing) too inexperienced (Buckley, Davenport, Rankin-Costello) or likely to be desired elsewhere (Travis). Holtby is a must sign if available, feasible.

    No brainer, if he's as good as we think/hope/remember, sign him. Downing is on his 1 and (probable) only season. Dack (and Lenihan) are (most likely) in thier last season Graham is (most definitely) in his final season Rothwell (might well be) fed up and asked to leave after this season Smallwood (99.9%) gone after this season (hopefully January) Johnson has (maybe) another season or 2 in him Gallagher, Armstong and Brereton are strikers (not wingers) Bennett is now (apparently) a RB After this season our midfield is probably left with Evans, Buckley, Butterworth, Rankin-Costello, Davenport, Chapman, Johnson and Travis (if we can keep him)... ie, Yuk. We also need money saved to buy a GK, CB (replace DL) and LB since we dont own any good ones. Holtby on a "free" and a 3 year deal should be a no brainer... especially since Mowbray loves a settling in period for (most) new signings and by god will we probably need him come January/August 2020.

    Comfortable 2-0 win in the end where we missed 3 clear chances and took our foot firmly off the gas last 15. 2nd half much better than the 1st (Buckley a passenger?) and defended most of it well (we did have 5 defenders and Johnson tbf). Bennett maybe had his best game of the season - he also wasn't at RB all game and did miss a very good chance. Rothwell... how he isn't in the XI I don't know. Dack ran the 2nd half. Tosin seemed okay but had very little to do. Mahoney was pony. 😂

    Absolute paint drying football here at home with Mowbray. A footballer should make it 2-0 there... unfortunately for us the chance fell to Elliott Bennett.

    Ahh wonderful, the crabs are back.

    Absolute Zzzzzzzzzzzzz. Manager has zero clue how to field an XI and probably can't even spell "tactics". Gallagher on the RW is beyond a joke now for me. So dull. Mowbray is holding us back.

    Cardiff-home

    HT. What an unbelievable snooze fest, as always. 6 games in, 1 first half goal (penalty). Tony Mowbray is a boring manager. Could literally buy a (second) half season ticket and you'd probably miss 3 Rovers goal. And for christ sake, leave someone on the half way line when defending set pieces. We have zero counter attacking threat. Yawn.

    Harsh considering Nyambes "chance" was alongside two teenage youth players and the crabs in midfield. Put Nyambe in the first XI and see who is better. We have some real leadership finally, Bennett simply isn't needed as he was in L1. Good win, I wish we could show a bit more desire to get a 2nd and use our brains a bit more. That stat on the Lenihan-Williams partnership is staggering, positive.

    This TV coverage is awful. Lingering on close ups time and again when attacks are happening... Going to be punished if keep giving the ball away cheaply. 2-1 defeat as it stands for me if we dont sharpen up.
