    Not the be all and end all, plenty of players have had great careers without being brilliant at heading.

    I'm surprised that Butterworth's burst into the box from within the centre circle and subsequent cross shot hasn't prompted more comment. Excellent balance, technique and no little confidence.

    Championship 2018-19

    Given the way Sheff U took Hull apart, that might be 15 or more when Leeds kick off.

    Rodwell signs

    Definitely keep. Promoted teams usually contain players easily too good for the level they are playing in. A fully fit physically and psychologically Rodwell will come into that category for Rovers. Rodwell is where Mowbray, the physios and sports Psychologists will earn their keep... or not...

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Getting a bit fed up of comparisons to PNE if i'm being honest, go speak to some of their diehards and they are still envious of the set up and budget we have at Rovers. They still think we buy our way out of trouble, 7 mill on BB, funding a Cat 1 Academy and our overall wage bill fuel that view and compared to them you can understand it so I think it's about time they got left out of the debates. We've only been below the Championship one season in about 7 years and I don't think they can say the same so over all who is the more Championship set up standard club ? We should be as good as if not better than them in the bigger picture, i'll be expecting we should be next season.

    Or a Wes Brown situation. There must be a decent stopper type centre half in the whole of western Europe with looking at guys who are looking for a last pay day.

    If Bowyer hadn't have been fired he would have relegated us in that season.

    Has a lot of what we need, but I'd seriously worry about lack of pace at his age. Could have another Gordon Greer situation on our hands. What we need is Lenihan mk II. Only trouble we have is finding one!

    I remarked on that after watching the " highlights " video before we signing him. Obviously he was in camera shot throughout a 7 or 8 minute long video yet he never headed the ball once. Pretty unusual for a striker even in todays football.

    The only result of expressing opinions so obviously contradicted by data is the undermining of credibility.

    Rodwell signs

    Really is a no-brainer for me. As long as he accepts his position is CM first and foremost but cover for CB when needed as well.

    You've got to be careful with players that age. It really can be here today gone tomorrow. Look at Charlie boy and before that Danny Murphy. One for the old timers on here - John Radford.

    Injured apparently.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    I would agree that even though promotion was still a expectation, it can still also be very much considered an achievement. But minor point, I dont think Prestons season has been described as "amazing" by anyone. They had a horrendous start where they ended a good 10 points below us, theyve been ravaged by injuries and of course recently a dip in form has coincided with their manager being linked away. Theyve been much closer to the play offs in the last 2 seasons.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    If we could have played for 90 minutes in games we might have actually been in the play-offs !

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    I agree about Nyambe, there's a solid right back in there, it just needs bringing out.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Sunderland have been unfortunate in that Luton have been unstoppable. Shrewsbury last season started out in the same manner but ultimately fell away, Luton haven't.

    Sad news coming out of Scotland today. Billy McNeill, legendary Celtic captain and the first Briton to lift the European Cup, has passed away after a long illness. Given everything he achieved in the game, he remained a really humble, down-to-earth man. The word legend is often overused these days, but 'Cesar' was a genuine legend. A sad day for Celtic and football in general. RIP Cesar

    How about a Wes Morgan type defender and leader? Though at age 35 might only get one season out of him, but in that Kevin Moran/Tony Gale mould. No idea how long he's got left on his Leicester contract.

    Mowbray: Stay or go?

    Agree. My view - Nyambe could be a cracking right back. Great attributes and has got better season on season. His defensive positioning and composure, his original weaknesses in my view, have drastically improved. Back up would be nice - somebody capable of coming in to do a steady job as an actual right back. Bell might make a decent wing back but he'll never be good enough to defend as a left back in a 4 at the back formation. Really think we need to sign a first choice left back as a priority this summer.

    Tallest player but can't head it! Long way to go.

    Actually seems the wrong way round as well. You beat Emerald and trade the earth harp for master magic, summon and command materia and then beat ruby, trade the desert rose for a gold chocobo, which you must have already so you can get KOTR to beat Ruby/Emerald in the first place!
