    Summer Transfer Window

    If I was Mulgrew, I'd be sorely tempted to keep myself fit at Brockhall and take the dosh - just like Smallwood. Bugger outposts like Portsmouth. Don't blame the player but, IMO, the incompetent Mowbray and Waggott who bollocksed the contract.

    I'm hoping to win the £20million lottery jackpot tonight. I think my hope has a better chance of being realised........................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Abandon all hope ye who enter here !!! IMO, sums up Rovers to a tee under Waggott and Mowbray. Will the last person out of Brockhall and Ewood turn off the lights.

    Really!?!?: Koninklijke Atletiek Associatie Gent, often simply known as Ghent or by their nickname De Buffalo's, is a Belgian sports club, based in the city of Ghent, East Flanders.

    If you try and fail then no one can criticise you if you've been decisive and acted with the best intentions. We only need players who REALLY want to be at the club. If the lad didn't want it weeks ago, we could and should moved on to the next target.

    B0ll0cks. It's called leadership and leading by example. I'm pretty sure Waggott and Mowbray would rocket in the fans' esteem if they did what I suggested.

    Think we should have been in there weeks ago before others even thought of it. There's our offer. Take it or leave it. If they left it, move on to next target. Life aint that complicated.

    How long had Kipre been on our list? We knew the situation at Wigan and I just think we should have nailed it weeks ago. All reminiscent of Bauer who we seemingly tracked for 18 months at Charlton only for Mowbray, allegedly, failing to close the deal as he couldn't guarantee the lad a starting place in one of the worse, if not the worse, defence in the Championship! Similar to Reed from Southampton whom I think Mowbray well and truly pi1ssed off by only rarely playing the lad in his right position as, seemingly, he needed to learn the role from Smallwood and Evans! Where is Reed now and where is Smallwood now !?!? Strewth - it does my head in. IMO, unbelievable incompetence.

    You can't even get your factual arguments correct! I said, IMO, between £15 and £20 million had to be 'saved' by net transfer receipts and cuts to wages. Going back to your point, you wheel and deal. Problem with that?

    Summer Transfer Window

    This is dire stuff, IMO. Some six weeks since our season ended and just nine days to go to the new season. I don't think Waggott and Mowbray can have any excuse for their failure to bring in any first team players other than the Genk goalie. They've had months to plan, review all options, draw up contingency plans and execute whatever they landed upon. It's b0ll0cks about Venky's and the budget stuff. If Waggott and Mowbray felt their hands were tied then they should have been honest and told the fans what the score was and then they should have done the honourable thing and walked, called a lawyer and sued for constructive dismissal.

    IMO, Waggott and Mowbray can feck off. When they rip up their contracts and work for significantly less money demonstrating 'we are in it together' then I might take a bit more notice. IMO, vacuous incompetents.

    I think this transfer window is now becoming an utter and complete embarrassment for Mowbray and Waggott. Eight days until the new season kicks off and just wtf are we!? @Paul Mani still eulogising?

    Summer Transfer Window

    Why, why, why why? The lad looks like a good meal would kill him!!! Has played 16 games in Scotland's fourth tier and wait for it, has just one goal to his name! Where does that leave likes of Butterworth and Vale. IMO, more nonsensical business.

    The State of Ewood Park!

    It's so sad to see. I think it's shocking management all round. A perspective - Smallwood off the wage bill 12 months ago (instead of, IMO, Mowbray's sentimentality) would have more than funded a new pitch! Scandalous.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Sadly, IMO, the club has lost virtually all its spark and appeal. I can't see any imagination, initiative or excitement. I think Waggott and Mowbray are as dull as ditchwater and therein lies a huge part of the problem.

    Are you Mowbray's PR man? “don’t have a pot to piss in” - let's see if any of our 'big players' have left when the window closes or what our net trading spend is!. "European network" - I think it's fair to to say Genk wanted rid and more than likely, the lad's agent has done his job in sounding out clubs known to be looking for a goalie or two! You would question the remit of our "European network" if they are actively scouting first team players in the better leagues who are playing European club football - rather like me telling the missus to 'scout' the local Porsche dealer for her next car (nice to have but out of our reach and therefore wasting her time!). Suggest you wait for the fat lady to sing before you extol your perceived virtues of club and manager.

    Summer Transfer Window

    It's worrying we have so many gaps to fill. As a minimum, another goalie, two centre backs, a left back, a midfielder and a striker. Let's be honest, two of Mowbray's mainstays (Lenihan and Evans) are likely to be missing through injury for at least 25 games per season (between them) if history is anything to go by. I'd be surprised if the stats over recent seasons don't show Evans missing one in two on average and Lenihan one in three or four on average. In midfield, Johnson, IMO, is clearly not the answer, Davenport isn't, IMO, up to it and it therefore leaves Travis terribly exposed. As for strikers, does anyone really think Brereton and Gallagher are going to become prolific overnight. Armstrong can't do it all by himself and, IMO, Butterworth wont cut it whilst I think Vale is our best hope. So much for Mowbray's evolution and solid slow build. Sadly, IMO, he hasn't even got the foundations in place.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Just over five weeks since our season ended at Luton and just two weeks until we start again! So far, we've just one signing to show for all our recruitment planning and a new Euro scouting set-up. It doesn't look good. On paper, new goalie sounds half decent although there do seem to be some questions about his ability on crosses and even his temperament. I'm happy to give the lad a chance and think he will be a big upgrade on Walton. As for Kipre, hope he still comes and I believe he would prove to be a very good signing. IMO, a far better defender than Lenihan. However, it does beg the question as to why we've taken so long to make our move for the lad and could it not have been done and dusted at least two weeks ago before any other clubs got alerted. See there's a bit more stuff on Twitter about the alleged Armstrong bid and it seems not from the 'phantom' journos! See Sharpe hasn't responded to the latest stuff (despite being asked) and you do therefore wonder if a bid is in and been accepted.
