    He will be 22 in February. If this is his level at this stage, you can only imagine we will never see him break into the first team here.

    ROVERS VS STOKE CITY

    Maybe, but can't trust that paper. If I wrote with hindsight about that game on paper, the last 10 minutes alone would look something like this:

    Looked like more than a knock to me. He was down.

    No subs from us so far I believe? Against Derby I think we had made all our subs by this point of the game? I suppose we can't really bring anyone on as a 'defensive' reinforcement, and it likely wouldn't be prudent to switch it up and go attacking at this point.

    Birmingham look set to end Leeds' unbeaten start. 2-0 up at Elland Road.

    On that note, anyone know why Stoke were expecting their biggest crowd of the season against us? We're not the biggest draw, or with the largest travel contingent. Cheap tickets?

    Very good question! How you go in with the most defensive lineup you can muster, away from home, no pace to catch them out on the counter attack, and are 2-0 up before half time against a traditionally defensively shrewd team, I don't know!!

    Derby taking Brentford to pieces so far, 3-1. Looks like they might get the hiding we escaped.

    Would love to ask that Stoke fan how well Ryan Woods is keeping the lid on Dack now!

    ROVERS VS STOKE CITY

    I'm starting to really question some of Mowbray's signings this summer (albeit mostly ones I was questioning at the time). Not in terms of the player quality - far too early to decide that - but in terms of where we recruited and what types of players. We signed as attacking players: Armstrong, Brereton, Palmer, Rothwell. We signed to play in the defensive mid role: Reed, Rothwell (sometimes), Davenport (admittedly injured). Possibly that Lyons bloke. Yet we play Smallwood and Evans together basically every game (I think the cup games were the only exceptions?). The attacking players are increasingly struggling for game time - not a single one of the signings in that area is in the starting team today. The only player we have on the pitch who we didn't have last year is Reed, out of position. I don't understand why we collected all those defensive mids in particular since we wouldn't let Travis go out on loan either. Hopefully it works out today and hopefully it's just a specific approach for a specific game which will rarely if ever be repeated, but it is starting to make me wonder what Mowbray's vision really is. Not that I will care a jot if success comes.

    In the Championship, if you sign a free agent after the loan window has closed, the only way you can play him before the next window opens is if his contract was ended before the loan window closed.

    Probably by being a fantastic footballer. Possibly makes people a bit blind to the other stuff... Anyway, he doesn't seem like a bad apple sort in the sense of being an asshole or lacking commitment. It's his extra-curricular stuff that needs a lid putting on. Definitely got to be wondering what TM makes of all this. Could force us into accepting a lesser offer for him than we would like.

    So this is for the same offence then, the police officer thing? Why would the club announce he had completed it, and it then be extended?

    I definitely feel like our first game must be in Mordor. I also have images of our defensive mids intercepting the ball whilst shouting 'YOU SHALL NOT PASS!'

    Even that article itself is confusing...offence in September, given a year-long order, completed by the time of the article, which was in April...is the one year just the time in which the 100 hrs had to be completed? No idea how I have only just heard about him attacking a police officer!
