    china

    The Chinese will do what the Chinese will do! Not a good place to 'invest' IMO.

    Blackpool

    In Receivership. What a way to run a club. The Oystons stripped the club of over 20m the one season they were in the Premier League!

    Aaron Ramsey

    Juve are still owned by the Fiat car family? Plenty of money if so but it is still crazy as others have said.

    Rovers v Cobblers

    Mid table was the general view at the start of the season. Maybe we became a little greedy? I realise this observation might be viewed as rationalisation by some. That said, the team have to do better if we are not to end down the table. Let us hope that the new players bed in with a view to a...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    I agree about Dagnall BBTC. I got to a few more games in his early days when visiting my now deceased father who was a big Rovers fan. I thought he had the potential to have a really top career. He has done well but not as well as he might have done.

    The Squad for 2018/19

    I agree RLC. Miller will be back next season so this is boosting the numbers until the end of the season. At least he is not a young unproven player. We have had a few of them and I think that more have disappointed rather than have excited us.

    The Squad for 2018/19

    Has scored. 130 goals in over 400 league games. A vastly experienced striker. Worth a punt for six months. As has been said here before, the player market is more limited than in June. Maybe that Cook type striker was nor available. I doubt Dagnll would have been signed if Miller had not been...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    He has made 26 appearances in L1 this season so clearly Keates has some time for him. An experienced player which is good.

    I may be completely wrong but this looks like another iffy one if there is any truth in the story.

    Stags v Rovers

    At the start of the season most folk here would have settled for a half way finish. Unless we have a dramatic meltdown or upsurge that still looks likely. You have to wonder, if Rovers were promoted, how would they cope particularly as Norwood will almost certainly have gone, McNulty will have...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    I see MM is still seeking new signings. It looks as if he will need a loanee striker until the end of the season. Miller may well be out for a couple of months. You just could not pick our luck!

    The Squad for 2018/19

    I suppose this all pales into insignificance when you read about the poor young man who thought he was going to sign for Cardiff for 15m being lost in a plane over the Channel Islands. Very very sad for everyone involved.

    The Squad for 2018/19

    I respect your view frenchrover but your comments beg the question as to when does a Manager deserve a press conference? I am sure that we would all be very happy if, for example, James Norwood was signing a new contract at one.So why not the Manager who has helped him to get where he is...

    We will see with the length of MM’s contract but I am not sure we want him being tempted to go elsewhere if someone were to come with a similar offer. At aged 46 he probably wants stability of employment. We can put hope that as our finances improve the club can be more measured in its player...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    Time will tell with Pringle but he seems to be very experienced (aged 29) unlike some of the younger unproven loanees we have had in the past. I imagine MM has a better sense of what he might offer. I hope it is positive. It may be as well that the pool of prospective loanees is shrinking as the...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    Given that MM saved the club by getting us out of the NL he certainly deserved a press conference.

    rovers v swindle town

    I imagine that in our current situation MM is interested in short term results. We were close to a financial catastrophe if we had not been promoted and I imagine that it will take us a season or two to get back on to a proper even finanancial keel. The key is league payments of course. In these...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    Fair comment RLC. The other thought is that if there is any spare cash then there might be a case for delaying until the summer when there will be more players available who are, hopefully. of the required standard.

    The Squad for 2018/19

    The likes of Williams and Akammadu were probably cheap ‘punts’. If they succeed, great, but if not, not much lost. As others have said, will be interesting to see what happens now. Fantastic if more money is available to convince Norwood but would numbers still be a problem? We are half way...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    A bit surprised about Cole but MM is not hanging around. Anyone remotely surplus is leaving. The Italian boy as well ? It may well be that we will see a winger signing probably on loan. Might depend on how long Smith will be out?
