    New Games

    Division 2 is much better in that regard, there is still some repetitiveness but it is much better in that regard with more variety. It improves on the first one in almost every area.

    If anyone is playing Division 2, I have created a clan (for PS4), it would be good to see some of you online! Clan is imaginatively called "BRFCS".

    Brexit Thread

    Big development that Mogg now suggesting that he will back May deal due to risk of no brexit at all, if he takes most of the ERG with him then MV3 might get through (even without the DUP supporting it).

    Venkys London Ltd accounts

    If only they had tuned up on day one and told John Williams and Tom Finn that they were going to invest £250 million pounds over the next 7 years (in addition to all the TV income) and charged them with planning that expenditure. I am confident that they wouldn't find themselves in the situation that they are us are currently in. What a waste.

    Those figures are scary for the simple fact that we are totally and utterly reliant on them, if they decide to pull the plug in the near future then we will be in a similar position to what Bolton find themselves.

    Brexit Thread

    I accepted the result and was not for a second referendum. However, I did not forsee the situation that we are in now, in that the negotiations being so badly handled by May et al. If they can still come to some agreement then good but if they cannot then surely they have to go back to the people and say you voted for this and now here are the options because we your elected representatives cannot agree on the way forward so you decide.

    Brexit Thread

    I just think that ERG in particular would rather have a bad deal then run the risk of a softer brexit or a second referendum. The DUP spent much of yesterday talking to the Attorney General the speculation is that he is going to clarify some of his legal advice which would then allow the DUP to change their position. All of that said, what happened yesterday was astonishing, we had ministers ignoring their Prime Minister who has now lost control, yet she still carries on. Some of the narrative in the press is that May is a trooper and is doing this out of a sense of duty. I don't buy it, this is a politician who has made so many bad decisions, just look at what she left behind in the home office (windrush etc), then she took over botched the biggest negotiations that our country has faced in a lifetime and managed to reduce her majority by having an ill advised election.

    I think that we are at the Brexit end game. I can see the ERG now faced with Brexit not happening falling in line to vote through May's deal within the next week, then we get a article 50 extension to push through all of the technical requirements. Then Tories will push out May.

    Best Rovers Team Youve Seen

    Excellent thread and some very good teams. Mine is: Friedal/ Berg, Hendry, Samba, Le Saux/ Ripley, Tugay, Sherwood, Duff/ Shearer, Jansen (before his accident)

    Cricket

    What a brilliant match. Buttler's innings is the one the best that I have ever seen, his last 108 runs came from 32 balls, just sensational. Gayle at 39 years old at his best with some amazing hitting. At one point West Indies were well ahead of the game but then 2 crazy shots in that Wood over pulled it back for England, then very brave captaincy from Morgan to give Rashid that 47th given what Braithwaite had done to him in his previous over but boy did he deliver. Fabulous entertainment.

    Mowbray’s Future

    If you look at when he was incharge at West Brom he started with just signing UK based players in his first couple of seasons before moving the club on and signing players from Europe/rest of the world, not saying that this is what he will do at Rovers of course but he been known to look at "outside the box" signings: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/west-brom-albion-tony-mowbray-12793111

    Sorry to hear that you have been seriously unwell. Hope and pray that you are able to make a full recovery.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    What Mowbray walked into was a club that was in total disarray both on and off the field. The scouting structure was completely dismantled by Kean and then Shebby. We lost all of our good scouts. This is not the kind of thing that can be put together overnight, what Mowbray has focussed on was to get the domestic scouting structure right, he now has largely done that and is ready to look at our European/International scouting network. This is not an easy undertaking. If the players TM wants to sign our too expensive then I agree with him that it is better to wait until Summer to see what can be done, there is no point wasting the limited resources that we on players that he isn't convinced about just because they are available and are cheaper. At the moment is looks like the money spent on Brereton was not the right deal to do but we can't change that now, however it is still early in his career with us and we just have to hope that Mowbray can help him realise the potential that he obviously seen in him.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Reports this morning that Southampton have received 4 loan offers for Austin from Premier League clubs, problem for them is that are they going to risk loaning/selling him to relegation rivals? However if there is Premier League interest I would imagine Austin himself pushing to stay in the Premier League. Looks like we have competition for Gallagher from other Championship clubs.

    Ha ha he has credit in the bank by turning the Dack investing of £700,000 into a possible £20 million plus return!!

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    I am sure that the owners have been made aware that these players are available but the big question is how desperate is Mowbray to sign them given the levels of finance involved and him being big on thoroughly looking at a players background to try and ensure as much as possible that he will fit into the culture within the squad that he has built. I am sure that if TM was desperate to sign them and approached the owners there is a very good chance they would make finance available but I am not convinced that he is desperate to sign them and has continued to focus on getting Gallagher.
  18. Kamy100

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Gallagher has always been the primary target because it is a player that Mowbray knows and more importantly he fits within the budget that we have left. Austin and Britt are players that are available and offered to a number of clubs but in terms of cost it would beyond our current budgets unless there is intervention from the owners. We need to get a striker in before the deadline so it is sensible that the focus is on the one that we can afford. Austin and Assombalonga would be amazing in different ways but these are complicated deals which will require more money from the owners which in itself is a complicated process and then we would have to beat a number of clubs who are interested.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    This from Mowbray is a little concerning as it does sound as though he would be open to Travis going out on loan once he has got someone in "“Like when all these clubs phone me about Nuttall and Travis, I get told the same, if and when we get the players we are looking at, there’s every chance he will be able to go out on loan". Travis is ready and deserving of a first team chance. If he is loaned out, not only is it a stupid move because he is ready to have a positive impact on our first team, it also sends out a bad message to all of the other young players at the club.

    TM tried to sign Ambrose in 2017 on loan, so this is one to watch if he doesn't go to Cardiff as speculated above by Bigdoggsteel: Efe Ambrose Leaves Hibs after Triggering Clause

    No deals imminent and Mowbray would like Loans with the option to make permanent type deals: Loans Deals Key

    Ben Brereton

    I do feel sorry for Brereton. It is very hard to make any kind of positive impact constantly just coming on as a substitute. I think @meadows has it spot on with his information that this signing is not one that Mowbray has found, more something that has been suggested to the owners. Given that information that Jim has come across it now all makes sense. Brereton doesn't get game time because Mowbray prefers to play with a big strong centre forward who can hold up the ball and bring others like Dack into the game, from the limited bits that I have sign of Brereton he is not that type of player, he looks to be a type of player who likes to get in between the lines and get in behind the defenders, totally unsuited to the way we play. If there is any get out clause (and I very much doubt that there is) then it should be exercised. If there is not then the best thing that we can do is to send him out on loan in January to a team that suits the way he plays (preferably in the Championship) so that he can gain some form and hopefully get some belief that he can play at this level. If the Brereton signing is a Venky's vanity project then it is a massive shame that they didn't just give that £7 million to Tony who would have spent in a much wiser way.

    Premier League Stuff

    After his latest antics this morning that club will not move forward until they get rid of Paul Pogba. Jose deserved the sack for his results but Pogba seems to think that he is bigger than the club and is as Jose described him a virus infecting the entire dressing room, his ego is out of control.

    Looks like it will be Laurent Blanc to replace Jose until the end of the season.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Compared to the last time we were in the Championship this season has been infinitely better and we have a manager who at least seems to have a roadmap for the future that he believes and more crucially the Venky's believe in. With a squad that is not one of the strongest in the league we are at present well clear of relegation worries and pushing towards a top 10 finish, hopefully the scouts that have been working hard can help to bring in a couple of players that improves us and then we can do the same in the Summer and evolve our squad.
