  1. We seem to play much better when we have only the 1 x cdm.. personally would play 4-1-4-1 especially given the wingers we potentially have! Travis CDM Buckley/Butterworth Rothwell 2 x CM Khedra Dolan Ben on the wings Ideally a new striker
  2. He might be the key, but to date he has more chance of finding the door, than Elton John has of finding a female bride
  3. I think our biggest strength is this amazing European scouting network we have!!
  4. I would take the 2 x promotion one trick pony any day of the week!
  5. Oh what could have been if we had potted Mogga and replaced with Ismael at Christmas last year... he would have us top 6.. and yes with this squad, people would want to come and play for us.. Instead we have Stubborn Tony who won't call potential players to convince them to play for us..
  6. After he leaves I mean... post 12 months if he goes what difference does it make to him...
  7. What if... just what if... Tony is creating a shit storm so that as he leaves the next guy doesn't stand a chance .....
  8. Based purely on YouTube highlights (I know!) Dembele looks a better all round player than Obafemi...
  9. Could the Obafemi delay be a smoke screen to cover any challenge from Newcastle? And / or assuming we will have agreed a reduced fee as part of the Armstrong deal, when other clubs are asking they are being quoted a higher number than his valuation by Southampton, which is what I'm hoping is happening...
  10. Anything more than a defeat and I'll be chuffed... WBA have stepped up a level, mainly because of their manager, who we should have snapped up at Christmas last year.. he sets his teams up to play the pressing game and with significantly better players than he had at Barnsley he is going to walk this league.. From our perspective, we are clearly desperate for a striker would look at putting Diaz central and Dolan / Butterworth left.. sorry don't agree with Gallagher being central, he's just not good enough unless he's part of a duo, which no one really plays any more
  11. Any insight into this Obafemi.. personally think we are getting him, loan view to perm.
  12. Really enjoyed that, I would be happy to take a few seasons of consolidation, if it allows us to blood / develop more of our youth.. as long as we dont get relegated.. my standard out players were Dolan, Kaminski and Buckley (bar a few miss placed passes I the 2nd half). Kaminski 8 - two phenomenal saves that could have easily meant a different result. Nyambe 7 - did his job Lenihan 7.5 - always commanding Ayala 7 - seems decent enough Pickering 7.5 - looks like he has potential Rothwell 7.5 - such a talent, must be a nightmare to play against, would be in the Premier if he had better final ball. Travis 7.5 - usual industrial self. Buckley 8 - seems to be coming of age, but needs to lose the casual mistakes. Gallagher 8 - one of his better games Dolan 8.5 - all over the place, well done young man! Diaz 7.5 - played like Diaz most of the game, much more confident, but occasionally saw Ben. Butterworth looked really good, excited about him. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable return to Ewood!
  13. The absolute best we can hope for is that we strike it lucky with a manager.. any thoughts of a string structure is purely dreamland
  14. To be honest I'm desperate to watch live football at Ewood, so me and my boys will be renewing... although like many I feel totally disengaged by Mogga and the 2nd half of the season.. And yes, it is the hope that kills us!
  15. I think the fact that Tony's love child is staying is the strongest indicator that he is going nowhere at all! 😏
  16. Offering Bennett and Chapman is a surprise to me.. both have done nothing for Rovers in the last 2yrs... unless we extend Chapman and then sell him, I see no point in keeping him on as he clearly is only a League 1 player.. I'm hoping Bennett will only be on club mascot wages! Personally think the wages on both these guys could have been better utilised.
  17. Couldn't agree more.. We need someone who has a vision and thinks big, someone who inspires belief and pride in the players, a leader who wants to over achieve... Currently we have the exact opposite, someone who will always 'limit beliefs' with his excuse, apologetic mindset, non accountable language and body language!
  18. Absolute shambles that Tony is still here.. to say I was excited last week after the Bournemouth game when I heard he was going was an understatement, it was HOPE for a new start, a fresh start, yes they may have recruited a dudd, but I would always rather roll the dice and live life going for stuff than stay mediocre.. I'm hoping they're lining up a corker before potting Tony.. it definitely is the bloody hope that kills us
  19. Can we stream the conference?? 🤦🏻‍♂️
