    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    I'm not really bothered what Mowbray or Waggott say about Dack. What does Dack say ?

    You can bet your house that barring injuries Evans and Smallwood will start against Norwich.

    He's been kidnapped by the same aliens that got Gladwin. Do either of them really exist or are they just holograms ?

    Gestede has run into injury issues, not for me.

    I agree with your point that the best defence is to be playing in your opponents half buts that's not so easy when you're playing with a back six.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    I've been a big fan of Raya's up to now but that dash out from goal yesterday had me shaking my head. What was he thinking of ? Maybe the bang on the head has scrambled his brain. If that had have been Duffy there would have been murmurings on here. Nyambe also dropped a major bollock. It's a cardinal sin these days for a full back to be taken out of the game by an inside ball. I thought Gladwin was top gun in training before he got " injured " ?

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    I did the stadium tour with Ronnie Clayton just before he finished doing it. We were talking about young players and he told me he was best mates with Duncan Edwards in the old days. He was going to be Duncan's best man when he got married after the 1958 World Cup. As we all know before that Edwards was killed in the Munich air crash. Ronnie said " We've got the next Duncan Edwards coming through the ranks at Ewood, a young lad called Phil Jones ". He was praising him to the skies that day. I can see why Ronnie thought that at the time but for all sorts of reasons Jones has never made the step up from good player to great player as he's got older. I was talking about Mike England earlier. He just got better and better and better. You could see him making progress game by game. He was what Jones should have become,

    Bradley Dack

    Roy Boy's only quality signing.

    I take off my Blue and White glasses when it comes to evaluating players. Hand on heart Mike England was the best centre half I've ever seen. Lucio of Brazil was the next best.

    If I were signing one of them at their peak for Rovers it'd be Campbell for me. As good a ' Stopper ' style centre half I've seen play for England. The guy was a colossus in his hey day.

    Another one who played for both teams - Howard Kendall.

    You're very kind. I felt a real fool.

    The source of my most embarrassing Rovers moment. When he made his home debut I was waiting outside the main entrance with my young son who was collecting autographs. I thought Jeff Kenna came out so I asked him to sign my son's autograph book. While he was signing I congratulated him on playing well. He said ' I wasn't playing today'. When I looked at the autograph it was Tony Gale !

    Damian Johnson played for Big Club also as did Jeff Kenna. It'd be nice to have those two back playing again.

    The enigmatic Jason Lowe vortex

    It's like I was saying about Marlon Broomes the other day. I'd heard big things about the lad so when I first saw him play I was expecting to see a spark of something. Maybe a little bit of David Dunn's ability on the ball or a touch of David Batty's ability to win back possession. Well, there was nothing, and I mean nothing. His positional play was a joke, he seemed to be drawn to the ball all the time yet never seemed to get it, his passing game was very limited, he wasn't a big player so his heading ability wasn't very good. I was scratching my head, what did he bring to the party ? After all those games I still don't know now !
