    Summer Transfer Window

    The absolute last thing we need is squad fillers. You have the Academy graduates for that. Spend the money on a better LB or don't spend it at all.

    Let's Talk Tyrhys Dolan

    Nah, he's a L1 wide man.

    Armstrong has only done well for us since January, so that ratio is about right.

    Club survival isn't going to hinge on spending £10-15k a week and a £500k+ transfer fee on a Championship standard LB. If anything it's the perfect time to push the boat out if everyone else is dallying. We could steal a march on them.

    Nah, 1 signing needed at an absolute minimum, a LB. I'm happy to rely on the Academy for squad depth. Keep the door open for the youth players to prove themselves.

    I'm happy with us relying on our Academy from here. Just desperately need a competent LB. You wouldn't have to break the bank for one.

    The fact that Pike (the U23 RB) has played in pre-season and Thompson hasn't suggests they don't rate him unfortunately.

    Armstrong Signed

    I think the problem you've got with Armstrong is he's a L1 wide player. He doesn't have the footballing brain to play there. Conversely he's a very good Championship 9. Talk of him 'dovetailing' with Dack doesn't fly as Dack isn't mobile enough to play in a front 3 - you'd have to shift back to the 4-2-3-1 formation, except our CMs aren't good enough to play that.

    Sounds v. grumpy for a bloke who's team just won 5-0.

    Nah, L1 standard is a fair assessment - he was Fleetwood's player of the season. Much like Mulgrew - v.good in L1, but quickly found out in the Championship.

    Final League Position 2020-2021 - Poll

    This is like asking a lad at 2am what he thinks of the girl he's just brought home from the bar. She's a 10, obviously. On the back of this 5-0 win we're clearly going to piss the league.

    With the wages I imagine it was either / or, not both.

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Wycombe didn't set themselves up to be difficult to beat. It's a different kettle of fish if they came here looking to defend and hit us on the counter.

    Why would Chapman be feeling sick? The door is clearly open for him to seriously contribute in this team. It's up to him to walk through it.

    Back when £5m meant something, yes. In the modern 'Monopoly money' game, no. I'm not as high on him as many on here are, but I'd rather watch him in Rovers colours than bank an insignificant amount of money.

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    I think we've got enough cover upfront - I'd want to keep the door open for the promising U23s to make a breakthrough.

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Mowbray has had a blinder of a pre-season if he's signed Kaminsky, Ayala, Manning and Dolan. More so if he's found a role for Holtby, continues to play Rothwell at CM and keeps the door open for Brereton and Chapman. Look like a different team.
  18. Exiled_Rover

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    I don't think that's fair - we've never struggled to score goals at this level. If Wycombe have anything to worry about it's that they didn't trouble us at the back.

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Quiet, but the game was over as a contest.

    I prefer the Americanism "You hate to see it".

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    I think the problem Mowbray's going to have is that Dack's return unbalances this side. I'm not sure where he plays in a 4-3-3. Will probably have to go back to his 4-2-3-1 formation, which could be a shame considering how good we've looked recently.

    Great through ball from Buckley. Armstrong is also BRILLIANT when he doesn't have to think. He's a really, really good #9 at this level.
  23. Exiled_Rover

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    He can't really pull off the long hair look, but fair play for trying.
  24. Exiled_Rover

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Oh dear, the Rovers iFollow commentators are off on one. We're the greatest team in the league now, apparently.

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    I'd bring on Chapman for Dolan / Buckley for Holtby / Davenport for Johnson. Save the young / old legs.
