    (Too early?) January transfer window 2020

    I agree, I think Joe Rankin-Costello is MUCH more deserving of a shot over Adam Armstrong.

    I do. Chapman is nowhere near his level.
  3. Another step towards the back 3/5 we should be playing with. It's the logical step, as TM said himself last season. When you've lost all your defenders, and you're relying on less experienced players, chuck another one in there and sure it up a little. JRC, Nyambe, Adarabioyo, Grayson, Bell. Depends when Lenihan is back I guess, but if we don't have Williams, Lenihan or Cunningham, we have to stick another defender in there to even that out.

    Season Tickets 2019/2020

    I do some digital work for a coach company based on Shadsworth Business Park, there's companies out there, they're not difficult to find. Baffles me.

    There's no parallel for me having watched both on at least 6/7 occasions this season. Armstrong (whilst frustrating at times) is a much better player.

    Academy & U21s

    New partnerships announced over the last week. Just now we've partnered with New York City based Eastern FC. A sharing of training facilities, a pre-season friendly tournament held in America, opportunities for young American players to get view by Rovers scouts. Nice little affiliation that. The academy set up growing outside of the UK is a good step IMO.
  7. Can Lewis Thompson just get a chance though 🤯 he's been immense all season for the 23's, got his international call up for the Northern Ireland side and scored in his debut. A natural left-wing back, top work rate and effort, can't be any worse than Bell and in my opinion could be better than him if given a shot. Who am I kidding though Bennett will play there.

    Season Tickets 2019/2020

    We need to offer what Leicester have, a 10 game season ticket where you can pick and choose from any 10 games until the end of the season. Would definitely go down a treat with those who can't always make it due to work etc... but don't want to pay for the full year.

    Firm belief in my camp (me and my girlfriend nattering away) that the loss of Harrison Reed is a massive reason for our downfall in work rate performances. There's a lack of urgency, fighting spirit and work rate for me. I like Johnson but he doesn't get about enough. Evans the same. Downing isn't a holding midfielder because he doesn't have the legs, but is continuously played there. Gallagher and Armstrong don't put in enough effort either. In fact, minus the first 30 minutes at Preston I've never really seen Sam Gallagher chase much down. Lewis Travis & Harrison Reed as our midfield rock would've really been something special IMO.
  10. Seeing way too much Fiend. WWE just can't help themselves. If the character is ever going to work it has to be sporadic, random, shocking. It can't be every week. It won't survive over a year with the way they're booking it at the minute.

    Good timing! Hertha Berlin tickets announced. £3 and £1 for adults and concessions, ST Holders, 1875 Club Members and Junior Rovers Members get in for free. Lovely stuff!

    Fancy throwing out your own? Or just throwing me under the bus

    Barnsley, Derby, Wigan and Birmingham before January. I think we'll get a draw at Stoke, and maybe a draw at Huddersfield with a nice away following!

    Academy & U21s

    So there's some big games coming up in the rest of November for Billy Barr's men: Friday 15th November - Hertha Berlin (Ewood Park) Friday 22nd November - Manchester City (Leyland FA County Ground) Monday 25th November - SL Benfica (Leyland FA County Ground) Friday 29th November - Burnley (Ewood Park) Burnley game moved to 1pm on a workday, and also heard off a mate that it may only be open to 1875 club members too, so not going to be many in attendance for that one! Berlin game is Friday and I've seen no ticket information about it so far. As for Berlin the team, we can expect a tough game with this one. They've lost to Liverpool 3-1, but also beaten Swansea 4-1, both teams in our PL2 division. Benfica beat Berlin 2-1, so expecting the Benfica game at Leyland to be a tougher one than the Berlin game at Ewood. Burnley showed in the Lancs Senior Cup Final last season that we're a class above them, so that one should be a breeze really, and the Manchester City game should also be a doddle, with their team sitting bottom of the PL2 Div 1 table on just 6 points. Rovers beat City comfortably at Ewood Park last season.

    It's weird though because we can't beat Luton but we can beat Wednesday. We're a mid table side because we beat random teams and lose to random teams. The top 10 sides in this division (by and large) beat the teams they should, and lose the games they should. We've just beaten Sheffield Wednesday, not really an expected win for a "relegation side", but then lost to Leeds, which is expected. We're 7 points down on last season. Apply that to our final total last year, we'd have finished just two places lower in 17th. We're just stuck in a mediocrity, but for me you only need 45 points to stay up in this division most years, and we're still bang on for about 60, worst case 53.
