    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Perhaps the keeper is Joe Hart. The Times today says he can leave on a free transfer. Im sure he’ll have plenty of offers and his wages will be high but I would be really pleased if it was him.

    Perhaps I’m not making myself clear but the £12m investment in first team regulars might well ensure future profits.

    Sam Gallagher Returns

    I totally agree Den. A £12m investment with the first team should hopefully produce a future profit.

    Sam Gallagher Returns

    I regard his signing along with BB as investments for the future. They are costly signings to be sure but in the light of deals being negotiated in the current climate they are a risk worth taking. Our manager has made a decision which I’m sure the owners agree with and I’m happy with that. I would be astonished if deals for a goalkeeper and defenders (probably on loan) were not in place by the end of the window.

    Sam Gallagher Returns

    Welcome back Sam to Ewood. One thing you must do is watch your performance against Brentford in your last appearance for us when we got relegated. You were brilliant that day and showed genuine pace and talent. Things haven’t quite worked out for you since then but Mowbray wants you and that should boost your confidence. He will set you a target for the season and I hope you can meet it.

    I’ve just spent the last 30 minutes listening to the IFollow interviews of Johnson, Downing and White. If these guys play as well as they talk then we’re in for some happy times ahead. If you want to de stress from all the transfer speculation then give them a listen. Very interesting insights into how Tony Mowbray manages, his football philosophy, his standing in the game and his target for the season. I know sometimes interviews are misleading and footballers aren’t renowned for their public speaking but these three are a credit to themselves and can be real assets this season.

    I hope Raya has a thick skin as he’ll get plenty of stick from Pontus if he makes an error. I remember him tearing a strip of the young Leeds keeper last season after Lenihan’s goal. I’m astonished that Leeds have let him go. There must be a story there.

    Just a little surprised that Downing hasn’t gone to Austria to get familiar with his new teammates. Also, Mulgrew, Evans, Nyambe, Liuetweiler, Williams and Samuel haven’t travelled for various reasons.
  10. A big thank you to everyone for putting this out. A terrific player resource and it brings back some wonderful memories. Have we ever had a “z?” Archibald would be my favourite A as he was the first big name to come to Ewood under Don Mackay. Didn’t we only have 3 sides of Ewood open then as work was being done on the Riverside?

    My thought too Philip. I’ve been trying to find any comment from Mowbray about Stewart Downing. Has he stated that he wants to sign him? It all seemed to start with a journalist from the Yorkshire Evening Post, picked up by a Sky Sports News guy then the LET “understanding” talks may take place with him. Stuart provided these links for us but does anyone have other links?

    Great work by all of you keeping us Rovers exiles in touch with events on and off the pitch.

    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    On page 15 of this thread you said that Mowbray had made some bewildering decisions with regards to his management and that you and certain others have been highlighting these whilst the manager continued to make wrong decisions. You then claimed that as the manager did make changes then these were attributed to your knowledge of the game. Thus calling into question his professionalism and that members of this messageboard somehow knew more about the game than he did. Hence my use of the term arrogant. I am quite happy to let Mowbray get on with his job but I don’t like to read on this board the seemingly random criticism of his actions without any basis in fact. I apologise to you for the use of the term arrogant as it wasn’t directed at you personally but at the way this messageboard has gone in recent years.

    MY issue is who takes the credit? This manager or the messageboard? I’m neither pro- Mowbray or anti- Mowbray but to claim a handful of posters can influence a professional manager in his decision making seems ridiculous.

    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    Perhaps the reason Mowbray chose not to play them today? Im sure he has his reasons but he wanted the win to boost the feel good factor going into the end of the season. An away win in this league surely has to be applauded? You seem to be suggesting today was a meaningless exercise but we are a professional football club with the integrity of the league an important consideration. You can’t just “throw” a couple of kids into the team and hope for the best. TM demands his team win and to jeopardise that would be foolhardy in the extreme. He knows the strengths and weaknesses of the U23’s and I’m sure he has plans to aid their development in discussions with Damian Johnson. I am delighted that we won today and hope we beat Bolton, Norwich and Swansea. I can’t believe that any Rovers fan would not wish the same.
