    Happy Tugay Day

    They destroyed so much so quickly. Yet they are still here and we are meant to be grateful. Can’t believe we are creeping up towards a decade of these profligate misers: brilliant at spending someone else’s money. It will be a necessary but awful tragedy if they end up being here longer than Jack. Anyway... Tugay. Will we ever see his like again? Unlikely. I can guarantee one thing though, he would NEVER get into a Mowbray team, and that upsets me nearly as much. Imagine never having watched him play.

    Nothing more needs to be added from me about the great man. However, looking through those photos upsets me as much as anything. What a great club they purchased and what an act of disgusting arrogance to just throw it all away.

    Keir Starmer would be a possibility. There was a Tory MP on R4 yesterday who talked sense but I'm damned if I can remember his name.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Personally I’m really looking forward to “Tony’s moment”. And with his neck on the line no less. Until of course he doesn’t make those signings but everything will still be good. Quick: someone use the word hysteria, that’ll distract them!

    Without a doubt my favourite ever Rovers player. A genius. Thanks for the memories.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    I wonder how many times we’ll see the line ‘X who worked under Mowbray at Coventry’ this summer. Jesus wept, as you say I really hope our net is cast a little wider than TM’s former players for a change following all this scouting chat peddled by the club.

    Swiss Ramble thread on Rovers' finances

    Sheff Weds under embargo last season Derby’s sale & leaseback is being challenged by Middlesbrough. What if they lose on Monday ? Burnley went up under “he who shall not be named” with no parachute payments

    LT mentioning Lyndsay from Barnsley and some kid from Everton under 23s - who worked with TM previously. Our scouting has come on leaps and bounds 😂 Seriously though, the 'budget' and recent comments don't seem those of a team about to challenge for promotion. *Unless he sells Dack.

    You'll need your passport and visa to enter the Metropolis 😁. Watch out for the peregrine falcon. It's also on Monday.

    IMO, a mentally and physically fit Dack is a very good Championship player. Rhodes scored goals for fun at Rovers but, IMO, has failed miserably since leaving. When we first signed Rhodes and he scored a few goals, some on here were lauding him as the new Shearer - it was nonsense. I always thought his lack of pace, aggression and physicality would prevent him from hacking it in the PL - in fact, I think he's now struggling at Championship level. I see similar hype where Dack is concerned, however, IMO, his lack of pace and an indifferent attitude will prevent Dack from even getting to the PL never mind hacking it at that level. When at Rovers, for most of the time, I thought Rhodes made the most of what he had in his locker - sadly, I don't think that could be said about Dack.

    Exactly - the damage done in three months after relegation probably sewed up 50m in useless wages and pay outs.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Haha, weird. This literally never happened. Ever. Iv never said we are going to sign this player or that player. Neither have I poked fun at you about this. I did ask for some calm during the bad run when several in here were calling for the head of the manager. My point through all of this is that the manager has set his stall out. He’s shown his hand in terms of his ambition. If we are to achieve that then he will have to sign much better players. So let’s judge him and the club at the end of the window. None of this has changed and quite frankly the hysteria amongst grown men that can be created from 30 second excerpts of interviews in India is laughable. I often wonder if people read back their posts and think “How on earth did I get SOO upset over that?”

    Second best player I've seen in the blue and white halves after Shearer, just an absurdly good player.

    Swiss Ramble thread on Rovers' finances

    (Off topic be damned!) The Lewis Travis BANISHED FROM THE TEAM trope is pretty revisionist as to what Travis had actually shown us up until that point. Mowbray gave him his debut of course, and before the game in which he was sent off : Travis he had only played a total of 55 league minutes for the club. I don’t know about you lot, but I found the League One season pretty bloody stressful. There was a hell of a lot at stake. It was far from questionable or short sighted to leave him out for the majority of games after this. And then new season rolls around. Trav wants a loan, TM says you’re an important part of the first team picture here now on so forget it. Travis really hadn’t shown yetananything but promise, and the team was ticking over well enough initially, so he has to wait for his chance. Sona couple of months later... TACTICALLY, DELIBERATELY, AND NOT “FORCED” - Trav starts a league game, does well and is basically ever present ever since. If we can add the “mismanagement” of Rothwell (that has left him as our second best player) to the “misuse” of Travis (now our best midfielder), then I’m very, very, very excited to see who Mowbray can absolutely fuck up with next..

    When I see the words parachute payments all I think of is Best, Murphy, Etuhu, Orrs contract extension and Rhodes, all the lot lot, four years worth blown right there. Only good thing in it was Jordan otherwise we'd have hit league one a lot sooner. Shocking just shocking.

    Talk about United and Everton is fantasy but 15 goals and 7 assists for a team who finished 15th suggests he is not overrated at all. Parachute payments enable clubs who come down to support their high wage bill in the main. Its not just a booster of transfer budget.

    FA CUP

    I am posting this here as I just came across it on YouTube, it's just a little older than me (the game that is), we beat Burnley and it's in the FA Cup. Brilliant, just look at a full Ewood rocking. Official attendance 52,920 Notable also for the commentator referring, historically correctly, to our Quartered shirts
