  1. The January 2018 transfer thread

    What an exciting squad Sir Tony is building. Pace, power, skill.
  2. Shrewsbury Town - 13/1/18

    Samuel played well yesterday. Won the free kick for the first and the penalty for the third. He also laid on good chances for Armstrong and Dack who were very close to converting those chances. Their left back couldn't handle him and should have been sent off for two yellow card challenges.

    Scrub a new CM off the list, Bennett and Smallwood were immense today. Bennett must get a run in that position - outstanding performance. Use the money on an attacking wide player instead.
  4. Shrewsbury Town - 13/1/18

    Definitely a penalty for them. Weve been well on top so far, they're very lucky to be level.
  5. The January 2018 transfer thread

    A potential frontline of Dack - Graham - Armstrong - Chapman is very exciting. My personal view is that Chapman and Armstrong will sign permanently I'd we go up.
  6. The January 2018 transfer thread

    Cracking signing. May well be the difference in us going up automatically. We'e coped this season without any of our strikers being on fire, this guy has proved he can score loads at this level
  7. The January 2018 transfer thread

    Adam Armstrong - yes, please. Would be a top signing. A striker signing was a must for this window and he's proven at this level. Lowe - not for me but he would be ok at this level as a back up. Think it will happen. Downing a permanent deal - again, a big yes. We haven't lost in any game he's played, that's no coincidence. Good defender who I think could play at championship level. Bell - Don't know much about him but widely regarded as one of the best left backs in the league. Looks like it will happen. Winger - this one is key and the area I think we'll spend cash on. Rumours were Billy Bodin was bid for but that didn' come off. Happy with the rumoured signings so far. Signing up Chapman on a perm deal would be very nice too. Don't think it will happen as he'll want to ensure he's playing in the championship next year, hopefully with us but if not he'll go elsewhere.

    I don't think too many personnel changes at this stage of the season would be very helpful at all. I agree about the likes of Evans etc not being good enough but I'd keep them until the summer. A striker is a must, we don't really have a potent striker at the moment. A pacy winger would be nice, but is not essential as Chapman will be back fairly soon hopefully. I'd send Harper back, he's not getting a look in. I think Lenihan will come into cm when he's back, I can't see him dislodging Downing in defence. A striker and a pacy winger would be enough for this window. We're going very nicely so no need for major changes. Of the loan players, I'd certainly be looking to sign Chapman and Downing on a permanent basis. Chapman is one of the most exciting players we've had for a long time. I'm a huge fan of Downing, I think he's an excellent defender. No idea how he was in MK Dons reserves, he could even make the step up a division I think.
  9. New CEO at Ewood

    I'm sceptical as to whether he'll have as much power as he thinks he'll have. All decisions will still have to go through India, but at least we have a football person as CEO rather than one of Venky's stooges.
  10. Five straight league wins in any league is an excellent achievement. I wasn't able to follow the match but sounds as though Dack and Smallwood, in particular, had good games. Automatic promotion is well within our grasp. Shrewsbury and Scunthorpe both unexpectedly dropped points. The wheels have come off for Shrews. As for January, a tricky winger is needed along with a striker. Danny Graham has been poor this season, I wouldn't be surprised if he left for somewhere like Scotland. Not to mention Chapman and Lenihan are to return in the new year as well, very strong squad. Also good to see some youngsters coming through. Promising times?
  11. Excellent, we're showing some very promising signs. Coming from behind to win will give everyone a lot of confidence. Shrewsbury are faltering, we're taking full advantage. The wheels have come off now they've got some injuries and suspensions. It wasn't long ago we were 15 points behind Shrewsbury and 13 behind Wigan.
  12. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    Very surprising set of results today. The only one that didn't go our way was Scunthorpe, but I'll take that set of results.
  13. Joe Nuttall

    Very impressed by this guy, looks like a goal machine. An unexpected hero to fire us to promotion?
  14. ROVERS v Fleetwood

    Caddis to play right wing. That's my prediction.

    Excellent defensive display. Paul Downing is an absolute rock. Certainly would have taken a point before the game, and will certainly take a point after the game, especially with only 10 men for half an hour. One point gained on Shrewsbury to boot. Good day for us.
