    Summer Transfer Summary - Poll

    Bad. Focus of last seasons failings was defence. We ended the transfer window letting five 1st team defenders go and only bringing in two. Including Harrison Reed, we had three 1st team midfielders depart, and we had two 1st team midfielders brought in. Our front-line saw one forward in, and one forward out. In terms of depth and quality. We failed on both counts in my opinion.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Summer Ins: Stewart Downing Bradley Johnson Sam Gallagher Christian Walton Tosin Adarabioyo Greg Cunningham X 6 Summer Outs: Craig Conway Paul Downing Jack Rodwell Ben Gladwin David Raya Joe Nuttall Scott Wharton Tyler Magloire Charlie Mulgrew X 9 Wages could be offset in January from players being loaned out. On the otherhand, it could also be offset by not being relegated! 😉

    As I just said in the Mowbray Out topic. Starting to think we should go back to a 442/4411 formation and play players in the roles they are accustomed to. To have enough players to make this happen and be comfortable for the rest of the season. We could sign the following now. Jordan Archer (GK) Danny Simpson (RB) Ashley Williams (CB) Lazar Marković (LM) These players signed on contracts until the end of the season can do so with the understanding that if they perform they will get new lengthy contracts. When January comes around we can look to move out Jayson Leutwiler, Sam Hart, Matthew Platt, Richie Smallwood and Dominic Samuel on loan or others who aren't cutting it or not getting a 1st team look-in.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    To be fair. I had this earlier. If you type out Chris Hughton on a mobile. Auto-correct rather bizarrely adds a 'o'. Question for all on here. Do people believe that the formation changes over the last few seasons have worked? When Mowbray came in, he kept our basic shape and gave the team better direction. Now he is changing the shape. tactics and method of the team for a second time in two season's and like last season it didn't work. Mowbray's attempt to change the player positions for me has been bizarre and bordering on a bonkers waste of talent. Personally think we should go back to a 442/4411 formation and play players in the roles they are accustomed to. This is what I would do if the Rovers manager at present: Goalkeepers: Christian Walton Jayson Leutwiler Andy Fisher Jordan Archer (bring in on a contract until the end of the season) Right back: Ryan Nyambe Danny Simpson (bring in on a contract until the end of the season) Left back: Greg Cunningham (start ahead of Bell) Amari'i Bell Sam Hart Centre back: Derrick Williams Tosin Adarabioyo Darragh Lenihan Ashley Williams (bring in on a contract until the end of the season) Joe Grayson Matthew Platt Right midfield: Harry Chapman Elliott Bennett Left midfield: Stuart Downing Lazar Marković (bring in on a contract until the end of the season) Central attacking midfielder: Joe Rothwell Bradley Dack Central defensive midfielder/central defender: Bradley Johnson Richie Smallwood Jacob Davenport Lewis Travis Corry Evans Joe Rankin-Costello John Buckley Forwards (who should ONLY be played as FORWARDS): Adam Armstrong Sam Gallagher Danny Graham Dominic Samuel Ben Brereton Those players signed on contracts until the end of the season can do so with the understanding that if they perform they will get new lengthy contracts. When January comes around we can look to move out Jayson Leutwiler, Sam Hart, Matthew Platt, Richie Smallwood and Dominic Samuel on loan.

    4 goals conceded in 2 games = Goalkeeper/defence isn't the problem Had the minority of possession and failed to create clear-cut chances = Midfield isn't a problem 0 shots on target, whilst four forwards were on the pitch = Everything's fine!

    Chris Hughton is really starting to look a tempting prospect.

    Which was an own goal.

    Rovers commentary team having a laugh at the moment. "Encouraging signs from the game today". We haven't had a single shot on target with four forwards on the pitch.

    Referee is having a nightmare in the 2nd half. Bennett was fouled for the 2nd goal and he's just booked Bennett for a tackle in which he fairly won the ball.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Easily one of the most humiliating days I have ever experienced as a Blackburn Rovers fan trying to get information out with regards to the clubs deals. To say it was a shambles would be an understatement. This club is in big big trouble. The attempt to sign Harrison Reed for instance has really shook me in terms of how low we have fallen. Fancy trying to sign a player on loan at 30% supplemented wages and offering to sign him at the end of the loan for under £3 million. Soton laughed it off and got the full 100% wages plus an agreement to sign for £5 million come the end of the season with add-ons from Fulham. The Cunningham deal which has been apparently worked on for 48 hours couldn't even be completed with an agreement to sign him at the end of the season should he do well for us. 3 CB's were bid for along with a goalkeeper. Haven't a clue who they are. But they were all laughed off as being too low cash offers. We are now categorically left with a weaker defence than the League One defence we had, let alone what we had last season. Mowbray know's it. Everyone in the building knows it. Whilst I don't rate Mulgrew, not replacing him with an experience 1st team CB is absolute suicide. I expect Mowbray will pay for this abject failure with his job before the end of the season. Notice Cunningham has very clearly been listed as a "left-back" on the club website. As I clearly outlined the other week when we signed Tosin. The condition was that he would a) be played in the 1st team and b) be played at CB. We are left with Derrick Williams, Tosin Adarabioyo, Darragh Lenihan, Lewis Travis, Joe Grayson and at a push Ryan Nyambe for CB. I expect Bennett to be handed the captains armband by the way.

    A couple of weeks ago we were theorising that we could/would sign Adriano or Carson. A couple of weeks later Adriano is a Liverpool player and Carson is a Man City player. 😳 Talk about back down to ground with a bump!
