    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Would there be any chance of getting the United young centre back who was on loan at villa? As they've seemed to have signed a couple permanently already. Not going to attempt his name but he's quick and can get about. Possibly a loan deal. It would show intent and I can't see any other premier league club except villa looking at him but they've already signed a few.

    I don't see Mowbray as the manager. More like a caretaker for the club and its owners.

    Not being funny or anything but this idea of players mentoring other players and almost teaching them how it's done. What's the managers role then? To hand out biscuits? Too many look at him as nice and think that's all that's needed. If he's sold the best goalie at the club with no real back up plan then it's suicide. Again defence doesn't seem to be an issue for some reason. Guess we are going down the you score 3 we'll score 4 route which is piss poor management. Just waiting for the usual "we need more supporters in the ground to push us on" sorry but if you don't show ambition on the pitch how can you ask people to show commitment off it. All I want is the club to get back into the prem so that Venkys and Mowbray can jog on. He accepted mediocrity in January and is doing the same now. Charlie Adam is basically Danny Murphy. Both bold, both on the decline and both looking for a last payday.

    I think people are judging Raya on his age instead of his ability. Brilliant at point blank reaction saves. Terrible at crosses and kicking. The crossing part has to be mostly natural instinct it's not just catching the ball but being willing to get flattened and he doesn't come across as the sort to take a smash to claim the ball. Doesn't help with an under qualified coach either but when similar errors are made after 100 games then you've to question the player himself. Any chance the goalkeeper could be the lad from Brighton who was on loan at Wigan. On Johnson. A good player whose experiencedat the level. Brings power and technique. Smallwood must be going now surely. Goalkeeper. Centre back and Striker are the areas that need sorting now.

    From what I understand about the situation at the club. You can't really paint the manager in a great light There's the fact that he came out just before the window and said he wants to strengthen the defence and bring in fresh exciting signings and has since retracted on the defence being an issue which certainly makes me question his honesty or his suitability to progress the side. There's then the situation in January where speaking for myself, I said he needed to spend the money if it was available because being a handful of points away from 6th was a position which would be difficult to get into again. Instead no one was signed and we went on a run which to me should have sacked the manager, 3 points out of 30+ wasn't it? Again if the manager is being offered high amounts to spend and he's choosing not to spend it then I'd ask why? He might not be here come December so why is it so comfortable to think it's alright I'll bring in a few lower standard players to bulk up the squad and we go again. It's a cut throat industry he should be begging for every peny to improve the team in anyway possible. Also, Raya is being used as a scapegoat because it's easier to deal with a younger less experienced player than a Scotland international who couldn't defend in league 1 but can take a decent free kick. Rovers should invent a role where they can have role on role off subs and just bring him on for set pieces. People on here who claim that everyone complains to much remember that the club are trying to shift season tickets, it's convenient that we are going to make quality signings as the tickets are released for sale. Supporters are being taken for mugs and if you want to sit there being a mug then happy clap along. Just need bowyer back now. Maybe he's already here in disguise.

    Liverpool got 10+ million for their third choice goalkeeper called Ward. If Rovers sell Raya for 2-3 million then they deserve any stick they get. I don't think he's amazing but at 23 he's worth a minimum of 5 million at least on potential alone. If brentford can't afford that then jog on. Could someone like Walton who was playing in the championship last season be someone as a loan target with any money coming in going on outfield players. On Adam. If we sign Charlie Adam, why have we signed Stewart Downing? Both bring the same qualities to me. Good technical ability but lacking in physical attributes so can't both play at once.

    Not a bad shout that. He looks far to good for league 1 and even when he came on in the final he seemed to play better than most with ease. If It was sensible wages and a decent fee I wouldn't be against it. May not be lightning quick now but he's a natural winger who if he can turn up for most of the time would be a game changer. I think a mix of youth and experience is needed this summer. Say if we sign 3-4 players. Maybe having 1 or 2 more experienced with the rest being potentially better in a year or two.

    This news page is really depressing not even a whisper of a potential signing. Is there any knowledge of if we've money to spend or not? This Dack sale might be a way of keeping prices down by suggesting we've to sell before buying with the hope of getting players in first but that's not much to inspire confidence. Would rather improve the defence over any other position. Maybe a premier league loan or two?

    Agree with this point. It's okay going with the idea of trying to give the guy some sort of career and income and many will say it wouldn't be right to boot these types of players out the door but think of it in another way. In extending a contract for someone who can't offer what's needed just to prolong their career here. You are directly ending a career of a young academy player who might be ready to run through walls to get their chance. Blackburn Rovers owe no player a career. Not from your Dacks to your Gladwins. If you play and are employed by the club then you contribute in someway or another. As for the previous poster stating that we should be out next year with the team we've got. We were in a 10+ losing run which took us from top 6 to near bottom 3. We will be near relegated next year if improvements are not made.

    Instead of McKay Stevens I'd rather get Jamaal Lowe from Portsmouth at least he's done well in the English leagues. Half of the Scottish premiership would get demolished in league 1 and I don't think even Celtic would get top 6 in the championship. Poor league with very very few quality players.

    A midfield option for us could be Joe Aribo at Charlton. Around 22 years old and nearly has double figures in goals with a few assists as well. Also think he's meant to be a powerful tall player and is near the end of his contract.

    A quality centre half who dominates and leads by example will improve the likes of Bell, Raya and Nyambe. I'd rather have 3 proven signings at centre back, centre midfield and striker than 6 or 7 maybes.

    Rather shift Bennet to the wing and bring Nyambe back in. Keep Armstrong for later in the game for his speed. Swap him directly for Bennet around 60 minutes in. Or simply put our other winger in Chapman in the team.

    Ben Brereton

    I don't believe for a moment that Brereton was the managers signing. I'm more sure it's the owners signing with a warning to the manager to put up or ship out. Although I won't lay any major blame at the players feet as he's been poorly managed this season. But...... You've got to admire the morals though yeah? Another manager who will pull the party line to keep his wage. At least that plonker Lambert called them out on it.

    Raya Bennet Lenihan Williams Bell Smallwood Travis Conway Dack Armstrong Graham I can't see him not changing the team.
