  1. Worrying contract situation, I think we've left it too late and he will run it down now losing value on any sale. Runs out in 2022 I think? Hes a top Championship striker who will go and thrive at the top level. Look at Shane Long who's made a career in the Prem and he can't finish for toffee! Arma has similar pace but scores goals for fun. A fantastic signing by Mowbray it has to be said.
  2. Kaminski is a big upgrade on Walton at a bargain price. A bit flashy with some saves but like another outfield player on the ball is a huge boost to our all-round play. The midfield 3 were superb and it shows the importance of winning the midfield battle as it allows the front 3 to play. Breo is like a new man, Dolan is the closest thing to Duff ive seen coming into the team at such a young age and Arma is a proper goalscorer - even when he plays poorly he makes an impact. Is this the start of a special season?
  3. Tony's going to have a field day with his tombola today 100%. 3 or 4 goals conceded I fear.
  4. Kalvin Phillip's, Sam Johnstone, Jarrod Bowen Johnstone Nyambe, Lenihan, Tosin, Downing Travis, Phillip's Bowen, Dack, Rothwell Graham
  5. Bar the blip in the opening 2 games we are now on the form of a top 2 side and that's where the aim has to be. We have players in the team now that demand success and expect to win and I feel that is rubbing off on the younger players.
  6. Dack plays off the striker or even false 9 at the moment. Rothwell mostly plays on the wing and neither are left footed so I wouldn't compare them to Cairney and Holtby.
  7. The Cairney replacement finally about to arrive? Holtby, if motivated, is a top player at this level.
  8. 10 points from the last 5 games you say? Promotion form.
  9. I think quite a few fans on this board are ageist against our Tony, sad to see.
  10. Spot on, people desperate to find a negative! The back 4 is strong and the front 4 exciting. Smallwood and Evan's need some minutes and are clearly backup.
  11. I imagine a tight game but we seem to have the edge over Hull in recent times so I'll go with 0-1. A miraculous away clean sheet..
  12. The main problem for me is tactically Mowbray has got it horribly wrong. We need 3 in the centre of midfield to win the most important battle on the pitch but instead we only have 2. Dack and Graham are effectively a front 2 with Armstrong and Downing not too keen on tracking back. This leaves Evan's and Johnson having to cope with the whole of Rangers midfield, always going to be a losing battle! Having such a poor defence and goalie behind doesn't help either.
  13. Slow, lacking energy and just sitting off rather than applying any kind of pressure..
  14. Spot on. He isn't a coaching genius but his man-management is right up there & that got us promoted out of a division that the likes of Leeds, Sheff Utd and now Sunderland have found out isn't a walk in the park, however big you are. We both know last season was not bare minimum touch and go 'survival' but some twist the truth to suit their agenda. These people need to look up the definition of 'support'.
  15. Neck on the line this will be a good signing. Experienced, quality, not a complete softie like Whittingham. Hes got a great engine and I'm looking forward to him picking out the likes of Armstrong, Dack, Rothwell and Graham. Now for some defenders please.
  16. Unfortunately we are 3 steps behind. Same with Mcginn last year.
  17. Mixed it with Leeds, West Brom and Derby pretty well who have all secured play-off spots this year. Yes they are over egging it to get ST sales but we have certainly mixed it with some of the bigger/better teams in the league. Our failures against lesser teams was more worrying.
  18. An idea I thought of to get money in but also give an incentive to fans would be to give a 'bonus' top up to those who preload their season ticket cards next season with money to use in the ground. Example; £50-£99.99 = 10% top up by the club £100-£199.99 = 15% top up by the club £200+ = 20% top up by the club This would bring in revenue up front for the club but also gives something in return to the fans who get a little bit extra in return for loading up their season tickets with cash up front. Am I talking rubbish?
  19. Great initiative, we should try to get as many as possible sold and look to put on a show. Announce season tickets a couple of weeks before at a fair price and we should see a few more through the turnstiles next season.
  20. Graham only contender for me. Important goals and our only striker we could rely on all season. Without him where would we be?
  21. Danny Cowley would be my shout if Mowbray leaves/gets sacked. Will Venkys even know who he is? No chance.
  22. Obviously it is difficult to comment on the training that goes on behind closed doors but I think it is abundantly clear from the lack of progress and failure to learn from our mistakes that the coaching at Ewood Park is not up to scratch. I do believe Mowbray is a good man manager but really worry that we aren't going to progress with the current coaching setup. From my understanding Ben Benson is the GK coach and he was promoted from the u18s along with David Lowe who became first team coach? Last year it seemed to be our quality of players at that level that pushed us over the line and neve
  23. Tony needs to stop with jobs for the boys and bring in a younger coach with fresh, modern ideas that can help the team. I have very little faith in David Lowe and Mark Venus and Tony clearly is not a tactical genius. I still back him at this stage but ask me again in October.
