    Rodwell signs

    This does nothing to alter my view that Rodwell was a player to avoid like the plague. Is he available for selection yet or are we just funding his lifestyle whereby he allegedly drives merrily round in his £59k Merc. commiting traffic offences along the way?

    Championship 2018-19

    Some fairly harsh comments about the owners above considering They've just forked out 7m for a player to sit on the bench.

    Derby vs Rovers post match thread

    Didn't see tonight's game but the thing that has always worried me about TM is that he is too loyal to players already at the Club. All his spiel over the summer was along the lines of getting a few players in to assist the ones already there I.e. pad out the squad as opposed to improving the team. We're also drawing far too many games. Like another poster said I Can't decide whether we've made a solid start or whether it's rather worrying that we only have two wins from eight games. You do get the impression that wins will be fairly thin on the ground this season and there will no doubt be games and periods where we play well and are unlucky to lose so we will need a reasonable win ratio to compensate.

    Bell vs Williams

    Do you mean the season we were relegated and conceded goals for fun? Hardly a badge of honour for Williams.

    Bell vs Williams

    Absolute no brainer. For me Williams is an absolute liability defensively. Bell offers far more going forward, does not get caught out of position defensively as often as Williams and is a lot quicker to recover his position if he does.

    Rovers v Villa - 15th September 2018

    Yes, he set the wall up wrong. Brereton obviously isn't a right winger but did really well to nearly carve out a chance out of nothing when he was in the centre of the box at one point.

    Rovers v Villa - 15th September 2018

    Thought we were very unlucky today. Can't see how the goal we had chalked out could have been offside and I thought the free kick for their goal should have been a free kick the other way. Overall a very good performance. Thought both full backs were terrific, especially Bell who was my MOM. Only slight downsides once again were Smallwood and Evans who once again Didn't offer enough for me and Reed looked far more urgent and a cut above those two when he came on. Graham had an absolute shocker and looked about 53 not 33 today. Brereton looked quite promising I thought but looks like he needs to be playing down the middle. That would be the obvious switch. Overall very encouraging looking forward if TM makes a couple of obvious looking tweaks to the line up.

    Season Tickets 2018/19

    Absolutely, it's not a new thing at all. The exact same £10 replacement applied in the days of Saint John as well. However as someone else has said if you haven't actually lost your ST card but have simply left it at home I think you can nip into the Club Shop or ticket office and get a paper ST "exception" free of charge. I'v e had to do both in the past. Why should you get a free replacement if you are careless enough to lose your ST? The Club have to issue you the card and someone in the office has to take time out to cancel the old card, run the card off and bring it down to the Club Shop/Ticket Office etc. I Don't think prices are a valid stick to beat the Club with. The replacement card charge certainly isn't. If you Don't want to pay it, look after your card properly!

    Season Tickets 2018/19

    Couldn't tell you as I don't think pricing per se is an issue. There were also bundles of cheap tickets though if I recall correctly. As for the missing 15k from the Oxford game, how many would have been down for a run of the mill game on a freezing day in February at £10? Not many.

    Season Tickets 2018/19

    In my view the problem is not the relatively modest increase in prices but the fact that the expectation amongst the fans now is that tickets should be dirt cheap and the knowledge amongst the floating fans that there is no real need to get a season ticket to obtain value because there will no doubt be several £10 offers on at various points throughout the season and they can pop down for a cursory look on those occasions if they felt like it. Thenodrog predicted years ago that reducing prices would devalue the product in the eyes of the fans and I think he was right

    Absolutely, those that can score do, those that can't run about a bit and bring others into play. Also a bit of an unnecessary swipe at Rhodes I'd have thought. I really Don't understand this revisionist slagging him off , the history books will record him as one of our best players.

    Oh do give over. Double golden boot winner in the Premier League and Golden Boot winner at the World Cup wasn't he?

    Bolton debt

    If That's the case their games will now last three hours but there will only be about twenty minutes actual action, the remainder will consist of ad breaks and the players standing around calling the opposition names.😯

    Bolton debt

    Two thoughts on this: firstly can't believe any Rovers fan thinks it is a shame one of our Local rivals might be going bust (although knowing our luck they probably will end up with the billionaire owners referred to) and secondly this Anderson character must not be telling the truth in his statement. He must only be offering to drip feed any sums contractually due to Blumarble in instalments which are not deemed adequate or he must not be offering to pay all sums due under the agreement after allowing for interest and penalties for late payment etc. No-one would place Bolton into administration if they were in receipt of a genuine and immediate offer to pay all sums due under the terms of the agreement.
  15. Bit of a wake up call today, the key thing is how we react and whether we can go on another run. Disagree with those criticising the £7m signing up front we needed strikers AND at least one centre half for me and overloaded on midfielders instead. Always thought that as a pairing Mulgrew and Lenihan are nowhere near as good as Individually they're cracked up to be, we've always conceded plenty of goals. Need a lot better from them in the coming months.
