    The nearest I could come to that sad b'stard is that my better half couldn't believe that I'd booked 2 days' holiday to visit Trelleborg! Alone!! To be fair, cracks had begun to appear in our relationship before then.

    You mean the 'Hotbed of Soccerโ„ข' as they'd have you believe?!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ#Shakesheadsadly

    Kits 19/20

    I quite like this idea but am not volunteering to get involved! I bought my one and only replica shirt - call me a tightwad if you must! I can't get my head round why people apparently feel they have to buy a new one every season - at the start of the season when our owners sycophantically(?) tied up with the Prince of Wales' Trust but before they had permission to put the Trust's logo on the shirt. As an old fogey, I'm proud to wear a modern Rovers shirt which looks back to the advert-free days when my Dad first brought me to Ewood in the 1950s. That'll do for me.

    For a number of years I've thought The Grauniad was going downhill. This just shows how that descent's gathering pace! I had to look twice at the link to check that it wasn't from the April 1st edition.

    Heads-up for those going to Ibrox on Sunday: don't forget your rain jackets! I've just seen the weather forecast & it looks like incessant rain for the west of Scotland on Sunday!๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    I, too, was impressed by his performance in that Swansea game & hoped that display represented him turning a corner in his career. Let's hope things aren't as serious as they appeared yesterday afternoon. After last season, would only be natural for the lad - he's still not yet 21 - to fear the worst.

    So would I; it'd feel like genuine competition between the 2 keepers.

    I know what you mean, S8 &; but it's a wicked way of expressing your sympathy for the poor lad!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„ At least you didn't compare him with Darren Anderson!

    Or should that read, "The team really ought, imo, to be built around these 2."? I'm asking because I simply don't know. I'm trying not to be provocative. I'm as far from being ITK as it's possible to be and I get bemused by so many people on here making what looks like a factual statement, but is really their opinion. Isn't that how we get 'fake news'?๐Ÿค”

    Bringing in a new, reliable, keeper's a bit more than fine tuning, imo. The word 'crucial' springs to mind.

    Pre-season 2019/20

    According to the Bury Times, our friendly at Gigg Lane is expected to go ahead next Wednesday. https://www.burytimes.co.uk/sport/17763806.wilko-39-s-bury-rebuild-way/ However, another report on the same website looks at a letter that Forever Bury, the diehard fans, sent last Friday to the club chairman. They understand that the club won't have paid the necessary insurance premiums by the start of next season which would means that home League and Cup games are unlikely to be able to be played. I'm not sure if there are different rules for pre-season friendlies, though I can't imagine there would be.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Another one a bit off-topic - more Memory Lane than Summer Transfer Window 2019 - but another name I remember from the mid-60s, although I can't remember if I actually saw him play - it was A Level time & my Mum, in particular, kept my nose to the grindstone - was another Aussie keeper, John Roberts. I think he played a few games either in the 65/66 relegation season or the following season; our first back in Division Two. There's something in a memory cell at the back of my brain telling me that not only was he the first Australian to play for us; he may have been the first Aussie to play in the Football League. But I couldn't swear to that.

    We haven't had anyone with that particular talent since, ooh, about 2011! [Or perhaps that wasn't what you meant, 47er!๐Ÿ˜‰]

    Oh, tony; No-o-o-o-o-oo!!! Were you the umpire in the chair that afternoon at Wimbledon whom John McEnroe informed, "You cannot be serious, man!"?๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ Why on earth would we - would any team - want to sign the true successor to Robert Green?! Please let him not be what our grandfathers said about the GIs during the later years of World War 2: "overpaid and over here"!
