    Absolutely. A proper flat 4 in midfield. Bollocks to accommodating Armstrong with this wide forward nonsense. I’d have said Downing ahead of Chapman, but either would do just fine for me. Walton Nyambe Tosin Williams Cunningham Chapman Travis Johnson Rothwell Dack Graham Not a chance, but I’d love that lineup on Saturday.

    What did he do?

    Bennett is taking some time off twitter after the nonsense following the Charlton match. Got that from the horses mouth.

    Think it could definitely be a factor. I remember reading some of those features they did where they ask players questions. Lots of his team mates said Nyambe was very quiet, and a few were taking the mickey. Nyambe said at weekends he likes spending time with his family and going to Church. Kind of got the impression he wasn’t so much one of “the lads”.

    Mowbray In? Mowbray Out?

    I think we all have a tendency to overestimate how much the money they put into Rovers ultimately means to them. Yes, they are sinking cash into a bottomless pit, but it’s not like they will be making any sacrifices... Balaji won’t be considering flogging a roller to make sure the guys in the ticket office get paid. While we have a football club losing money hand over fist, one whim away from oblivion, they have a 99.9% share in a football club - to the value of about 180 million quid. As part of their wider business portfolio, and sat alongside their other billions worth of assets, not only is it not a big deal... it makes sense for them to carry on as they are. “Pulling the plug would not only be catastrophic for us, but wipe the money they have “invested” so far off their net worth.

    Seems a very poor decision seeing as he should be nowhere near the team if Mowbray bothered to pick our strongest 11

    Done well to con Sam Allardyce and Giovanni Trapattoni into being a regular fixture in their premier league and international sides then... not to mention winning Irish player of the year while doing so. Better goals to games ratio than Tugay, and of course Brereton.

    Keith Andrews was a far, far superior player to Bennett!

    Bloody hell, that’s slim pickings. I'm not overly enamoured with Lenihan’s on field leadership and communication qualities. He is remembered for bollocking Raya once, where he was also culpable. Just shows how meek they all were last season. Got to be Johnson for me. Looks the part early doors. Downing would probably be higher on my list than some of the others there too. Fully expect Mowbray will give it to Bennett though.

    The Godlike Genius of Charlie Mulgrew

    I wouldn’t either. Sat deep in a 5 man midfield he’d do a good job. Doesn’t fit our system, but I think his attributes suit that role far better than centre half. Think he found his to centre back for us due to our 9 year neglect of the defence. Nobody really knew where he played when we signed him.

    I asked my North End mate if he can do a job at centre back... ”He can do, but he’s wasted there”

    He sounds like he’s on the verge of losing it completely with some of that. We have been in football a long, long time. We see the deficiencies and where we need to strengthen. It is not as easy as getting somebody who is better than someone who is in our team who some people might want to move out of the team and someone else come in. How much do they cost? Where are the free transfers that are better than the players we have in our team and how much wages do they cost. Everybody has a name and says 'why don't you and get him?' Well if I phoned up about him and they are saying he is £20million and we can't afford him so we have to move onto the next one. And if we phone up about him and they say he is £10million well we can't afford him. Why don't we swap Tyler Magloire for the centre half at Rochdale, whoever he is, and stick him in our team and see how we get on? "You have to find players who you feel are better at doing the job. And I know people might say 'I could be better than him' I can feel it, I don't read social media or the newspapers but I can feel by the angles of the questions then you have probably been reading that. And if people have been asking those questions well it isn't that easy. "It is tough to find people who are better than the ones you have got for the money that is in your budget to improve your football team. We can all just sign players but is anybody any better? Are they going to improve? That is the job and that is how hard it is. "Let's see how we go and trust the players and try and make them better and improve them. They are good lads, they want to work hard, they want to improve and they want to get better, they want a winning team and so do I.”

    Agree, unless they are of real quality. Defenders an absolute priority though, and I’d rather have a solid centre half than a fantastic attacker at this moment.

    Bloody hell... knew it was bad, but they’re some shocking stats!
