    January transfer window 2020

    Anyone else find the reported (rejected) bid for the Polish u-18 keeper a bit odd? We have two good promising young keepers who aren't getting a look in already. Meanwhile we very much need a senior goalie. If it's true I can only think we want to allow one of the kids to go out on loan and that the fee is chump change.

    Really is mythical at this point though. We might as well discuss our plans to play Theseus on a pegasus up front, and fund it by selling the golden fleece.

    We were. Thanks for spotting that one, though we haven't talked about him much.

    I love Dunn but I don't think he qualifies. He left the club once. When he came back it was only Bolton we beat to his signature wasn't it? And then I can't remember us having to fend off interest from bigger clubs. Great servant but I don't think he can really be used in this argument.

    I was wondering last week, how different the history of 90s football (or at least Rovers) might have looked if Shearer was a Rovers fan...

    Those six enforced changes can also be improvements if done wisely. Walton, Johnson and Mulgrew shouldn't be too hard to improve on, and Mulgrew has only even played once this season.

    Please, tell me more about being British and Northern.

    I was surprised by the post too, and almost commented on it. K-Hod is usually very even-handed and low in snide, I'm not sure where that came from. I don't see an issue with asking for the topic to go back on...well, topic. As long as you're not being a massive ass about it, which I didn't believe you were. That said, no need to withhold information from the rest of us because one mod got a little short with you. I get why you're annoyed but the truly mature thing to do would be to retract that part of your post.

    Not true that no one has left. Cunningham has gone back. He and Mulgrew probably cancel out each other's wage contributions.

    That's pretty much what I was thinking will happen. Is that based on info then or a guess?

    I can't remember a single transfer thread in all my time on the forum where someone didn't show up with a week or more to go and prematurely declare that we should 'lock the transfer thread' (rather than just staying out of it if they're not interested). I share your frustration Joe, I really do. And I still don't have faith in Mowbray. But I reckon there will still be one or two incomings, whether underwhelming, overwhelming or simply whelming. Along with a whole bunch of hard luck stories about what we 'tried' to do.

    T'other lad was Jozwiak though.

    Yeh pace isn't crucial at CM, but I'd say those first few yards are fairly important for winning the ball, with it being a more congested area. If he's not too bad at that (at our level) and can put a decent tackle in then you make him sound worth having. I still say it's not an area to prioritise recruitment unless we sell a couple of our existing ones though. But I know Tony collects them like some people collect stamps.

    Your first sentence's start shows me you took my post the wrong way. Just curious about the player. Thanks. How's his mobility?

    If he scored a hat trick last season, those were the only goals he scored all season, as his season tally was 3. 5 this season in 23 is a lot better. If you're talking about CMs only then yes that's more than ours. But it's also only in League One. I was asking what type of player he is though?
