    Bolton at home.

    Well it won’t be next season (Preston, that is, not t’other lot as they’ll be elsewhere )

    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    According to Sharpe, Chapman travelled, but obviously not on the bench...

    Well they certainly won't play on Monday then, day before an U23 game. Probably not Norwich away, 'not the right game against a top side' So, maybe 10 mins against Swansea. Real missed opportunity for their development, Shame.

    Academy & U'21's

    The 'not disrupting the U23s' is the daftest excuse I've ever heard. The whole purpose of that side and the academy in general is to provide players for the first team. Indeed Buckley or Butterworth get a game today and they will be absolutely buzzing for the U23s game at Everton on Tuesday, plus it helps Johnno's teamtalk - 'another one of you had a first team start on Friday, you're a great side etc.'.

    Academy & U'21's

    Heard him on Radio Lancs last night and he thought a few of them weren’t on it in training and needed reminding the season wasn’t over. Thats exactly why at least one young lad should be starting.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    That ‘slow down’ comment was either the most naive comment I’ve ever heard or he really is as good as bomb proof. The Championship is the most trigger happy league in football for managers. Most managers at this level would jump at the chance for the biggest budget possible because they could well be sacked by October.

    Championship 2018-19

    Good piece on Norwich in today’s Times. A combination of cut price/free foreigners and academy players. Must be a terrible flex!

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Considering one of Scotland's biggest clubs Aberdeen lost their star striker to Salford City, he'd have to take a serious wage cut...

    ‘Paul has recently been observing Brazil’s training sessions’ SFA’s press release, sorted!

    Championship 2018-19

    You reckon? I think it’s 100% an SFA type of appointment. I mean McLeish!

    Champions League 2018-2019

    At least the Champions League and World Cup are resolving them quickly. You just know it will be 10 minutes stoppage time a half with our authorities involved.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    We need an UPGRADED left back, centre half, possibly right back, central midfielder (as Reed won’t be seen again) and another striker - as we cannot go into another season with 1 proper forward (a 34 year old one to boot). That’s before you start to look at ‘adding a bit of depth’.

    Championship 2018-19

    ‘So why did you finish bottom of the group, Paul?’ ’Great country this. Lot went on before I came here. The SFA needs a wee bit of help’

    West London... and that’s it.
