    New Kits 2020/21

    To be fair to the club they have little control over when shirts go on sale, they’re reliant on Umbro shipping them and then the players returning for a photo to launch. Umbro ship training kits (because players need them, along with a set of first team kits) then their big selling teams replicas first.

    They have offered refunds. They’ve also offered a solution that suits both, if it doesn’t suit you then get a refund. What’s the issue?

    I really don’t understand why. Refunds are there if you want them, however they’ve tried to find a solution that suits both, most fans would’ve bought all 9 games on iFollow which would’ve cost £90. Therefore those fans are saving. The club wouldn’t have £90 so they’re better off too. They’ve explained why they’d prefer it. £500k+ would massively affect our ability to spend this summer.

    So then you’ve saved £30 and the club has kept the £60 rather than a % of the £90 you would’ve paid to ifollow. Win win no?

    They are allowing refunds, if you don’t like the offer take your money. Would you not watch each game?

    You can get a refund. They’ve just tried to offer a solution that saves fans money as most will buy each game and also save the club money. If you can’t/ don’t want the iFollow then get your refund, simple

    No, my point is. Your refund is worth around £60. They’re giving you £90 worth of content in exchange. Or take your £60

    Always find the season tickets holders wanting extra stuff odd. You get a ticket because you want to see all the games. Your ‘bonus’ for that is your ticket is guaranteed and you get around 9 games free if worked out compared to someone buying each game. Surely that’s enough? those buying game by game spend nearly double!

    They’re giving you access to ALL games, away included

    I don’t see the problem in it. Well done to the club for sorting all this out and the clear communication! I won’t be asking for any refunds, they’ve always been more than fair, 9 remaining games free = £90 worth, that’s more then my 4 remaining tickets, on average they are around £15 a game, that’s £60, I’m £30 in profit. Another way to look at it, I had a ticket for 4 games that can no longer happen. I now have a ticket for the only way to watch all 9! Also I know by saying they’ll reflect our support with next season’s season ticket prices means they’ll make sure they’re as reasonable as always! Come on you blues, let’s get in those play offs! They will refund if people want but they won’t get full value of the £90 you spend on iFollow so it’s a win win. Would cost them £500k+ to refund everyone, they may recoup way less than half that on iFollow buys and the same people would moan they aren’t spending money in the summer!

    Rovers v Charlton

    Lots to improve upon but also some decent things too, it’s not a case of scrap it all and start again. Goals - Downing is covering and let’s his man go, he’s the free to tap in. Walton probably should’ve come for it but will have been anticipating the two defenders and attackers it went over to maybe get a touch. Lenihan should’ve won his head but Travis just lets his man go to again tap in. So so whilst the defence was generally poor yesterday, that was actually more in an attacking/ in possession sense, Bennett gave the ball away across his box a couple of times and this highlighted him, Bell needs to be more single minded when in possession, when he slows it down he takes too long to decide what to do and often loses it. Whilst I absolutely think we could improve upon these two positions and I also think the centre half pairing struggled last season, we wouldn’t have conceded but for two midfielders not doing the basics. Mowbray - had those two done their jobs we’d be debating this much less but for me Gallagher looked quite a way off th pace, would’ve liked to see him go off rather than Armstrong and pity Brereton didn’t get a sniff having been good in pr season, however his strengths do not lay in his back to goal and with Charlton being so deep I can see why he didn’t come on. Buckley was brought on to quicken up transitions as Travis needs to work on this, Rothwell was the right move, as was Graham. Whilst the formation generally worked well I think having Downing so deep and narrow can mean the opposition can solely focus on Armstrong and mark him out of it, relies heavily on pinpoint balls over hit full backs’ head and Armstrong having a perfect first touch. The result in isolation is what it is, the problem is with 4 tough games coming up it puts more pressure on them, however those teams won’t sit back against us and I think that is when we’ll come in to our own. I do worry speed in which we can transition into defence though, we still seem slow to turn and through the middle of the park I fear we will be exposed on the counter.

    Fingers crossed this gives him the gentle reminder he needed that our defence has not magically improved. Need 2 full backs urgently!
