  1. I'd like to go if the date in question is Thursday the 13th.
  2. Gareth Ainsworth would be a good shout for many reasons in my opinion: - Relatively Young, hungry and desperate to succeed - Has 380 games in management at unfashionable clubs, with a win rate of above 40% - Has a promotion on his CV - Is currently flying high in League One, not many places below us in the pyramid after spending no money and gets the most possible out of his resources - A Blackburn lad and Rovers fan. He would be willing to come here. Brentford took Dean Smith from Walsall so I don't know why this couldn't work also.
  3. Waggott in the LT states we’ve got a similar budget to last year, meaning we have probably between 5 - 10 million to spend.
  4. I’ve been informed that the home kit is due to be released on 1st July. ?
  5. Just to set the record straight. Nixon said that Rovers “MAY need a sale to do ALL they want”. In other words, we probably have a budget of some kind but if TM wants to spend big on a CB and Striker, then he’ll have to sell. We can’t keep spending net £10 million every summer, otherwise we’ll be straight in embargo. That is just a fact.
  6. Rangers fans on Twitter were saying the Rangers v Rovers game is arranged to be on the 21st. As that date has been left vacant I think it’s likely to be true. We’ll be waiting for the go ahead from them to announce it.
  7. I didn't have a clue about that either! The cheek of some who say that Bowyer could judge a player. I think it was his Dad who did all of the good scouting personally.
  8. You can all sh!t on this as a worthless twitter rumour but....... A Sheff Wednesday fan has tweeted that he was in a bar with the Rotherham United squad and the midfielder Will Vaulks said he was in talks with Rovers. There is no reason for someone like that to spread bull but you never know i suppose. I suppose we will soon find out if that is true and if it materialises or not. Think the real fun and games will start properly in 4 to 5 weeks. Lets hope it's a productive summer.
  9. He’ll ending up keeping 3 or 4 hanger ons and only signing 4 or 5. I bet only 1 or 2 of those will be first team quality. Then he expects us to progress?
  10. This is my current assessment of our situation: The Current Squad (players in natural positions only) Goalkeepers - Raya, Leutwiler and Fisher Fullbacks - Nyambe, Bell and Williams Centre Backs - Lenihan, Mulgrew, Rodwell and Downing Centre Mids - Evans, Travis, Reed, Smallwood and Davenport Wingers - Bennett, Conway and Chapman Number 10’s - Dack, Rothwell and Gladwin Strikers - Graham, Armstrong, Brereton, Nuttall and Samuel Possible contract permutations at the end of the season Out of contract - Leutwiler, Downing, Rodwell, Conway, G
  11. When I read his comments that you outline after Brentford I was also very worried. However, he completely countered that by 180 degrees in a recent interview with Radio Lancashire where he mentioned failing to get promoted with Armstrong, Murphy and Maddison etc at Coventry. He was talking about how poor their defence was and how it cost them promotion, implying he does know that improvements are needed for us to have any upward looking aspirations. Whether he can sort it out or not will probably determine the direction of this club for the next few years...
  12. Depends which players are recruited. If the recruitment is good then we could threaten the top 6. If its similar to the summer just gone then we'll probably stay floundering in mid table.
  13. Mowbray suggesting that he may chop and change the side a bit during the run in. Hints that Brereton and Rothwell will get much more game time.
  14. It is indeed. They won one match 10 - 0. Yes that’s right, TEN - NIL!
  15. Hilarious. The new Netflix documentary would have to be re-filmed next season.
