    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Called them all "screamers", 3 of the 4 took huge deflections!

    Newcastle Away

    We have been allocated 3000 tickets for this as a "initial" allocation, would have thought that would be more than enough. Doesn't state where the tickets are, but I imagine they will be up in the gods.

    Championship 2018-19

    I can guarantee you that we will not get 10 points out of them. 6 at best.

    Rovers v Birmingham-Saturday ,December 15th

    David Bentley is another who has played for both.

    Rovers v Birmingham-Saturday ,December 15th

    This is going to be one dull game. 0-0 or 1-0 either way.

    Was a horrible day wasn't it, got offered £300 for my season ticket twice walking down Livesey to the game. Quite a few cashed in from what I saw too.

    Manchester City also did it in 98-99 out of the third tier, & 99-00 when they won promotion at Ewood.

    Middlesborough away Sat 8th Dec

    Good result on paper, two points dropped on the balance of the game. Thing is, i always expect to concede a goal under Mowbray, so i feared when we went in at half time only one up that we wouldnt win. Still, we move on. Two huge home games coming up lets see how we do.

    Newcastle Away

    Always tough to predict a Rovers away following but how many do we think we will realistically take to this? I think the 530 kick off will put a load off, 1500/2k?

    Newcastle Away

    Just when you think they couldnt kill the FA cup anymore.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    As said, I could see Reed leaving us and going on loan to someone like Leeds (interchangeable with anyone in the top 6). Similar to how Jack Payne left Oxford to come to us on loan last season. If that does happen, and lets face it Mowbray is never going to break up the Smallwood/Evans combo, I'd like to see Rothwell given a chance to make that right hand side is own.

    FA CUP

    Yes pretty sure that is right with the gate split, and a potential replay to factor in too. I can't see it being any cheaper than £20 for adults. By the way last year, Newcastle charged £10 for adults and £5 for kids for there 3rd round tie against Luton.

    Away Tickets

    Which they are well within there rights to do.

    Away Tickets

    Probably category B with it being a Tuesday night, although if we were at home to them on the 29th December you can guarantee it would have been a category A. £29 sounds a lot for Sheffield Utd to be honest, but still think we'll get a decent turnout due to the boxing day game being ridiculous.

    FA CUP

    £30 is the cap on away fans for the premier league, I wouldn't read anything into that.

    FA CUP

    I imagine our demand will be a bit higher than that day though, I reckon they will give us a good whack of tickets in the usual away end.

    FA CUP

    This will be one of those where we will get all giddy nearer the time thinking we can beat them, then we'll find ourselves 3-0 down in 20 minutes. Is this right? If so that might tempt me to go, I've been a few times in that top tier and after nearly dying when Mulgrew scored the season before last I thought to myself that's the last time I'm going up there!

    Tony Mowbray Appointed Head Coach

    It's as clear as day that Bennett starts for Conway when he's back, think thats the four Mowbray would go with when everyones fit.

    Yeah i was thinking that, no way is this a reciprocal agreement, Norwich wont be charging us £20 thats for sure. As said earlier on the thread this is just a offer to entice folk to buy early or to try and get the jack walker upper a bit fuller.

    Christmas offer for the Norwich game on 22nd December.... https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/november/ticket-news-norwich-city-h/

    Also, we were 3-0 up against Stoke when Graham went off, and that nearly ended up a disaster.

    Where (& why) has the Team Spirit gone

    I think it's a terrible knee jerk reaction to just suggest that the "team spirit" has gone over these last two weeks, it has been two terrible performances but this was always going to happen at a higher level. I can point at Williams, Bell, Smallwood, Evans, Bennett, and potentially the likes of Armstrong (out wide) and Rodwell (at CH) as not being good enough for this level, you might be able to get away with one or two of them and have a decent mid table season (like we are having at present) but put them all in the same side week after week and eventually you will slide down the table. I can't understand why since Bolton away, we haven't started another game with Rodwell & Reed in the middle, I think that's potentially a really good partnership at this level that has a bit of everything. Evans and Smallwood looked like they were running through sand on Wednesday night, I thought at times last season that partnership looked a bit tired, and whilst both have had some ok games this season I personally wouldn't be starting with either. I'd like to see Bennett, Reed, Rodwell & Rothwell across the midfield, keep Dack in his favourite "10" position off Brereton for a bit, Graham could be ideal to bring on around 60/70 mins to help kill a game off.

    Wigan V ROVERS 28/11/18

    Probably the first two matches of last season, 2-1 way at Southend & 3-1 at home to Doncaster.

    Attendances

    Actually this is wrong, I have just been pointed to this when I asked the same thing on Twitter.. So looks like the Boxing Day, New Years Day, and Easter Monday fixtures won't be available on the red button.

    Just a note, but I have noticed that Sky are showing live games at 3pm on both Boxing Day and New Years Day, Now, as these days do not fall on a Saturday does this give them another loophole and mean that Sky can show all the other 3pm games on those days on the red button?
