    Waggott: “We have reached a precarious point in the club’s history and, right now, every penny counts, as we try to keep moving forward against a backdrop of uncertainty and challenging circumstances.” Think this thread needs closing as regards incomings - autumn sales are on.

    Not at all. You offered up missing out narrowly on Harrison Reed as one of the reasons for Rovers failing to get promotion. Think you know there was virtually no chance that Reed would be back at Ewood for the reasons stated in my post. IMO, Mowbray's management of Reed whilst he was here was appalling and because of that, we very likely missed out on an excellent player at Championship level who showed his worth at Fulham last season.

    IMO, that was never going to happen and pure window dressing. If Mowbray really wanted him then surely he would have made his move when the window first opened and not left it until the window was virtually shut! I also very much doubt Reed would have touched us with the proverbial sh1tty stick - who the hell wants to be told to learn their trade from Evans and Smallwood and played out of position nearly every game.

    Seen some bad ones, average ones and good ones in my time. Off the top of my head, the following gave me the shivers: Barton, Ramsbottom, Butcher, Brown, Dickins, Fettis, Enkelman, Kean, Steele, Leutwiler and Walton. Stand up for Sir Roger, Arnold, Gennoe, Flowers, Friedel and even Paul Robinson.

    As I do a whole range of ......for Dummies including Marketing, Management, Psychology etc. Excellent guides for staff members!

    Sorry if you seem to struggle to understand simple statements. I said savings of that magnitude through wage savings and net transfer funds. Forward me your email address and I'll send you an electronic version of 'Finance for Dummies'.

    Out: Tosin, Downing, Graham, Walton, Samuel, Smallwood, Leutwiler and Hart. Factor in employers' NI and that's some £6million off the wage bill for a start. Net off Kaminski and Ayala and you will be a few £million in pocket.

    Hasn't the wage bill been slashed? The window is still open for departures!

    I'm not that feckin old! Look, if I hear something I post it along with names like Michel the French goalie (posted weeks ago and then Sharpe in LT mentioned) and Juklerod (posted yesterday). I think Rovers' transfer 'policy'- if you can call it that- is all over the place and I very much doubt even Mowbray knows what will happen when he walks into 'the building' each day. IMO, there will be one 'big' departure before the window closes, mainly to help the cash position and partially to facilitate a couple or so of permanent signings.

    Still think our player trading strategy is made up as we go along. Think messaging is mixed. Hearing WBA fancy Armstrong - they are a yo yo club and if they go straight back down, would see Arma as the man to fire them straight back.

    I understand Juklerod (plays down the left side in defence or midfield) who plies his trade in Belgium has been tracked. Type of flexibility that Mowbray likes.

    IMO, will be gone by the time the window closes.

    So true. I remember the likes of Geoff Hutt, Andy Burgin, Chris Sulley etc - left backs bought with washers and ten times better than Bell. Just where the feck do our scouts look!?!?

    Has there been an official update? Heard last night he's out until the new year - huge blow if correct.

    Nail on head. As I posted a few minutes ago, if you never give the lads a chance...................................

    Summer Transfer Window

    Clearly, Dolan is a very exciting talent. To me, there are two points: You have to give these you lads a chance - they are not kids at 20, 21, 22, 23 upwards as Mowbray has historically and persistently stated and managed upon. PNE didn't give the lad a chance and the rest will be history. As I've said on this MB on countless occasions, those with real potential and talent batter down that first team door irrespective of how young they are. We have a legion of 'youngsters' in the 20 to 23 year old range who many on here refer to as 'good prospects' - IMO, a good many of them wont be good enough for the Championship and they should be moved on. Football is a simple game and very often the facts are black or white.
  17. When Waggott does something to demonstrate we really are 'in it together' then I might reciprocate. IMO, diabolical stuff on ST's which will just alienate the fan base more.
  18. Not quite as I made it clear that I wouldn't buy a season ticket (with Mowbray and Waggott at the helm) even if I'd win the £62million Euro jackpot.! However, I won £150 across two bets (Rovers to win and more than 1.5 goals in the match) so I put my money where my mouth is/was. As a bonus, I also took £20 off a Burnley fan in the pub when our fifth went in. So, all in all, a nice little earner today which will allow me to add some very decent reds to my wine stock.
  19. Didn't look at that - can't review historic market. You'd be looking at more than 4.5 goals in the game and given the relativities of the two teams, I think you'd be looking at about 5/1 (6.0 decimal odds) which would have given you winnings of £50 for a tenner.
  20. Sorry but not my scene! Delighted with the result but there are bigger tests to come - sounds like Wycombe were as woeful as I thought they'd be but, having said that, you can only beat what's in front of you. Extremely profitable day and even took £20 off a Burnley fan in the pub when our fifth went in!!! Confidence and momentum are everything - let's hope positivity is now flowing throw our players' veins and we give it a feckin good go.
  21. Ryan Nyambe - IMO, you need to get away from this mad house. I do not think Mowbray has done much at all for your career development. IMO, the manager has hung you out to dry on a number of occasions and has handled you appallingly. You have great talent and potential - don't waste it!!!

    Odds vary match by match. For today (odds pretty low) you would presently (they fluctuate up and down) get: More than 1.5 goals in game (ie 2 or more goals) - 1.31- £0.31 winnings for each £ bet More than 2.5 goals in game (ie 3 or more goals) - 1.93 - £0.93 winnings for each £ bet More than 3.5 goals in game (ie 4 or more goals) - 3.3 - £2.30 winnings for each £ bet I've gone big on more than 1.5 goals in today's game. Broadly, if you'd have bet £20 / game on more than 1.5 goals / game last season (given 80%+ certainty ie result delivered), you would have been almost £200 in pocket after 46 league games
  23. Mercer

    Summer Transfer Window

    A bet that delivers with something like an 80% certainty on Rovers' games - more than 1.5 goals! Fill your boots - today will be a winner. Odds not great at 1.31 but a 31% return on £100 is way, way in excess of what you get in a savings' account!

    Getting into the play offs is pointless unless you WIN THEM!
