    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    So how do you deal with , say, a dead leg that keeps someone out for a week, or a back strain? You must be inundated with claims?

    And you know that for sure? So why did the club not get paid out in the well documented court case years ago when Martin Dahlin hardly kicked a ball for us and subsequently retired? If arbitro (who has worked in the game for years) has not heard of this arrangement your statement sounds a bit sketchy to me.

    Retained list 2018/2019 Season

    It's times like this I long for a Chaddy post validating TMs decision on Gladwin.

    No brainer then and you'd think it's a deal that could be done - I'm sure the player would fancy it.

    Thought that myself, Cowley the Lincoln manager also saying he's one of the best in the division.

    He'll still stink L1 out. He's at least 2 divisions above his 'ability' level even now. It'll be interesting to see if he exercises his right to give notice though bearing in mind he struggled to find a home when he deemed himself too good for us after relegation.

    Not read back through the thread and I'm sure he'll have been mentioned but Jagielka would be the perfect player to bring in. The right type of mentor to Lenihan and a proper leader. Sadly I think his wages will be out of reach.

    Norwich - tempting fate

    It has to be said that Elliott Bennett has now regressed to little more than a tub thumping cheer leader - like a modern Howard Gayle without the end product. I mean , thst cross yesterday...blimey.

    Bell's ball retention is appalling

    Bolton at home.

    Today's game is all about Brereton for me. We need someone to step up and at least be an option for an ageing DG and this is his chance to prove he's got what it takes. Fail today and it's 7 million in the bin as far as I'm concerned.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Anyone know how the overseas scouting is progressing?

    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    Great win yesterday and one I was ultra confident in us achieving within a couple of minutes such was QPR's lack of quality. A couple of points - The selection of Rothwell has been the catalyst for this upturn of form as it does a variety of things. We can give him the ball to travel with at pace to get us up the pitch, it means Armstrong can push up the pitch meaning there is a diagonal 'out' ball over the full back and the opposition now have to worry about 2 creative players and this gives Dack more space. Yesterday, on occasion, we used the long diagonal brilliantly to Armstrong to stretch QPR - it also meant the long punt to Graham was thankfully not used. A shame we have lost Reed as he compliments Travis so well. TM must replace him with a player of similar energy and desire for next season. It's all well and good talking of 'knowing' the position but if you have energy and reasonable nous you can effect the game in both halves - especially working in tandem. So, we're now looking at a good end to the season but my overriding feeling is of an opportunity missed. TM has more stumbled on this winning formula and we really look to have underachieved in the season based on the last few games and the dross that preceded it.

    Bolton at home.

    Bolton taking the Blackburn End came just ahead of my time but was a tale I was made very aware of by older lads. I was a young lad when Chelsea followed that up by repeating the feat - they were horrible bstards too. I was always talked out of trips to Burnden as an enthusiastic 9-16 year old by my (wise) old man. I got to understand why as I got older!!

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    I don't think I'm underplaying this by saying that is right up there with anything Kean came out with.
