    Dunn joins (Blackpool) Barrow

    His appointment was another bollock. That was obvious at the time.

    Homesick ?

    I've got a pal who was equally red eyed. He's involved with FC United now for the same reasons.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    If Gallagher and Brererton had have come up through the youth ranks they'd be out on loan like Wharton and Platt now.

    Dunn joins (Blackpool) Barrow

    I hope I'm wrong for Dunny's sake but I think Barrow have dropped a bollock there.

    Is that really his name or is it a spelling mistake ? My Rugby League team once had an Australian player whose first name was Radney. The story was that was a spelling mistake on his birth certificate, being an Aussie who knows ?

    Coronavirus

    Until the virus is contained to a much greater degree than it is now I wouldn't eat in a restaurant, or a pub for that matter, if it was free. The government has made such a mess of the initial measures to deal with the virus that I fear we'll always be running to catch up. Obviously lots of different sectors of the economy were crying out for some sort of return to the " normal " but I think the relaxation has come too soon and we will pay a heavy price for that in the future, both in terms of the economy and nations health.

    Coronavirus

    There's a bus stop at the end of my drive. I live quite near to town and before the crisis the buses would be half full at peak times and there would always a few people on most of the time. We have an hourly bus service and that has carried on. Sometimes it's a single decker, sometimes a double decker. At peak times now you may get two passengers on the bus coming out of town but most of the time the buses are empty. Going into town I never see anyone at the bus stop now, previously there was usually a couple of older people waiting lots of the time. The bus companies must be losing a fortune.

    Politics

    Mm, I wonder just what happened during his spell in Russia ? Maybe he'll give the old idea of using ice bergs for aircraft carriers a go. That should be thinking far enough outside the box for him.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    I hate to say this but I'd like to bet that the Dingles have hardly dropped any points from winning positions. If they go 1-0 up they usually go on to win the game. Of course they've got two good defenders at centre half and a really good goalkeeper. As Brian Clough used to say " Nobody can lose you a game quicker than your goalkeeper, so get the best 'keeper you can ".

    They will be with Walton in goal.

    I've only seen Butterworth play once but I really liked the look of him. He reminded me of a very young David Speedie. Then he got injured. I've heard it's a back injury. Having had a long term back injury myself sometimes that can mean " you have a friend for life ". Those old enough to remember Alan Gilliver at Rovers will know a back injury ruined his career. I hope Butterworth gets his career back on track but there are no guarantees Paul.

    There's plenty of top players who came from humble beginnings. Kevin Keegan from Scunthorpe to European Footballer of the year is possibly a stand out example. David Speedie made his name initially at Darlington.

    I've only seen him play once for 1/2 hr in that " Egg-Cup " game at Rochdale. He was sent off in one of those incidents were two players both go in with a high boot for a bouncing ball and Wharton got there first and caught the guy. Their guy made a meal of it and as the incident was right in front of the Rochdale bench they all came rushing out also making a meal of it, so out came the red card. Of course 30 seconds later their guy was running around like a good 'un. Unfortunately that's football today. Going off the half an hour I saw he seemed to be quite a composed player and was always looking to find a Rovers shirt further up field with some nice measured passes. Given lots of teams let the opposing centre halves have the ball and press everywhere else having a good passer of the ball at the back is very useful. Matty Platt came on in his place and one of the forwards had to walk the plank to allow the substitution to be made. He looked a bit more of a back to basics player than Wharton but he didn't do anything wrong.

    Did the Cardiff player get an " assist " for the pass ? He should have, best pass of the night.
