    The Big Summer Clearout

    I think Leutwiler, Gladwin, Hart, Rodwell & Downing will all move on permanent deals I could see Smallwood & Williams going out on loan to league one sides, nobody is paying a fee for those two. Evans, Bennett, Conway, Mulgrew & Samuel will all still be in the squad I think.

    Academy & U'21's

    Yeah shame that. Leek is pretty much on my doorstep so I was thinking of going along later. It's a lovely little town too.

    Summer transfer window

    Reed should be the first name on the team sheet in central midfield, along with Travis. Both always look to get the ball moving forward as early as possible. If we persist with Smalllwood, Evans & Bennett in the same side next season then we're only going one way.

    ROVERS V Wigan

    Evans was ok until he got his new contract, now he has reverted back to type. Been having a good laugh at the club for years that lad.

    ROVERS V Wigan

    Because he'll be "fit by then" is my guess, plus no way is Tony going to risk upsetting him again.

    Mowbray’s Future

    Not sure, but I thought he played really well there at Bolton back in October with Reed alongside him, if that partnership could have got 10/12 games together then I think our defensive record would be a lot better, but for some reason Mowbray has to play one of either Smallwood/Evans, of if we're lucky both. They would be two of the first out of the door for me in the summer.

    Mowbray’s Future

    And Rodwell too, who most people on here were saying should get a 4 year deal after the Hull game. I accept that the injury's were a possibility of course they were, but all I'm saying is I can at least see why Mowbray did let Downing go out, after 3 clean sheets and 4 wins in a row, in hindsight it was a bit naïve.

    Mowbray’s Future

    Who was expecting the Bauer deal to be done? I don't recall any links with him in Jan, too many were fantasising over some weird pipe dream of signing Britt Assombolonga to worry about the defence. I complete agree that 3 of the 4 are not real centre halves, but they clearly are in TM's mind and you can tell that he thought that the four he had at his disposal would get him through to the end of the season, obviously now with Lenihans injury and Mulgrew possibly being out and our horrific run of form it looks a bad call, but I can at least see why he did let Downing go.

    Mowbray’s Future

    I think the Downing one is very good in hindsight, you have to remember that when we let him go, he was probably in TM's mind 5th choice centre half behind Mulgrew, Lenihan, Rodwell & Williams, and no doubt he wanted to get out and play football anyway, we had also just won 4 games in a row keeping 3 clean sheets on the bounce, I don't recall anyone slating the decision then. After that Hull game nobody on here could foresee the collapse that we would endure afterwards, with Lenihan picking up a injury straight away. I think it's a harsh one to beat TM with that.

    The Relegation Thread

    I think we'll finish on at least 51 points to be honest, I can see wins against Wigan and Bolton, and another point or two somewhere else.

    Summer transfer window

    Can't see that at all.

    City or Liverpool to win the premier league

    Wouldnt actually mind if the dingles took a point there today.

    The Relegation Thread

    More chance of Brereton getting a 1st team goal this season than us going down, it's just not going to happen. Next season is a huge concern though.

    Will it last though? Sure, today was a party for them, Coventry did the same and sold over 30k for there first home game back after playing at Northampton. I imagine there attendances will increase of course they will, but they wont be selling out everyweek.

    Rodwell signs

    Yes I think you are correct, probably why Bolton started to get on top in the game in the second half.
