  1. The January 2018 transfer thread

    I have never come off a game saying "Evans played well today" in the 4 and a half years he has been here, If anyone can tell me what he is good at I'd love to know, I personally think he is a complete fraud.
  2. Midfield generals

    I'd carry on with it for the rest of the season, they provided everything we have been missing for years as a pair, energy, snapping away into tackles, passing it forwards early etc. However, Mowbray did come out and say on radio lancs after the game that he see's Bennett as a wide player, so whilst he might keep it the same this weekend, I wouldn't expect to see it long term, which is a shame.

    I hope the signing of Payne, and Bennett's performance on Saturday brings the end to the likes of Evans and Whittingham going through the motions in the middle of the park.

    At this level, on paper that is a good side. I don't think Mowbray would pick that eleven if he has everybody fit and available to him, but that's another matter. Oh, and Conway over Evans on the bench for me too.
  5. The January 2018 transfer thread

    I don't think there is as much money there as we would like to think for permanent signings.
  6. Cheap Ticket Games

    Pretty obvious why they have done it. 2 reasons... 1, They think with it being a local game and a good while since we have played them in the league that they will bring a couple of thousand (they won't). 2, They think that with our good form people won't mind paying a bit more to see a winning team, and will come regardless if it's £22, £24 or £26 (they won't). Although as season ticket holders we do get good value, someone, somewhere is still pretty out of touch when it comes to match day ticketing prices.
  7. Cheap Ticket Games

    I think we'll do something near the end of the season if we're still in this position. I like the thought of doing something with the wigan game though, £10 promotional offer for the darwen end lower. Stick the pie eaters in the upper tier and charge them full whack.
  8. The January 2018 transfer thread

    I don't know, i quite like that we're aiming for young hungry footballers at this level with the potential to step up. No chance. He's back out wide for the next game, Mowbray pretty much confirmed it afterwards.
  9. The January 2018 transfer thread

    I'd love to see that. It won't happen as theres no way Chapman and Armstrong will be here next season. Also another thing i know won't happen as he will be back out wide next week, but for me Bennett has to stay in that central position. Ive not seen the centre of a Rovers midfield have that sort of energy and drive for years.
  10. Has to be Orr and Best. Both horrible human beings who were very poor footballers also. Duffy didn't do himself any favours towards the end of his time here and is probably on the next tier down from them, he did have some good games for us though and is now playing as a regular in the top flight, so you can't say he is a bad footballer. Agree with what Bazza said further up about Murphy, probably just below Duffy for me. Etuhu, Stokes, DJ Campbell & Barry Ferguson are other names I look at with disdain, but probably not hatred. I also don't like Corry Evans. Anyone saying the likes of Lowe, Andrews, Mokoena etc, have a word with yourselves.
  11. The January 2018 transfer thread

    One of the main reasons for signing Downing now is that it frees up another loan spot. Mowbrays keeps baning on about not wanting to many loans, but I think that's all he will get this month.
  12. The January 2018 transfer thread

    Only my opinion but I think Mowbray has been desperate to get to that 3-5-2 system all season. If we can get Bell over the line I can easily see him and Bennett being "wing backs" for the rest of the season. Lowe and Smallwood to form a "base" in front of the back 3, with Dack in a "free role" behind the forwards. Probably Graham and that Armstrong guy with Samuel & Nuttall on the bench. Back 3 with Mulgrew in the middle, and a choice of Downing, Williams, Nyambe & Lenihan when fit to join him.
  13. The January 2018 transfer thread

    I hope we can bring in a midfielder (not Lowe) this week, just watched Shrewsbury and they will dominate our current midfield as it is at the moment.
  14. The January 2018 transfer thread

    Did Mowbray let something slip in that radio lancs interview? I'm sure he said "we're always interested in bringing back good players to the football club" before quickly correcting himself?
