Re: Scott Wharton.

We'll probably release him from his contract as that's what we seem to do with the academy players who show potential.

Re: Rovers vs Brentford

Was trying to work out the ways we can stay up. So far I have. (If I don't mention Birmingham they don't play a part.) We win, Forrest win and Birmingham lose. We win, Forrest Draw. We win, Forrest win by 2 goals less than us. We win, Forrest lose. We draw, Forrest lose. We lose, Forrest lose by 2 g...

Relegation Stay or Go

With two relegation 6 pointers coming up, we could well be relegated on Monday. I'm trying to stay positive, but I just can't see us staying up now. Coyle was sacked far too late. The key question is if we were to be relegated who would stay and who would leave. Don't necessarily need to give a reas...

Re: Tony Mowbray

Should we stay up, and I think that we will now, I can see us being in a good position next season with Mowbray. The team is looking a lot more positive since he came in, and it's being reflected in the way we're playing. Under Coyle we'd have rolled over and lost the games against Fulham and Norwic...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Looks like Abdoulaye Ba has gone to 1860 Munich on loan. So another missed target.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I guess this means we really need to hold onto Shane Duffy. I would also like to see about half of that transfer fee to go to spending towards new players. Obviously needs to go towards the running budget, but for now it's a pretty decent sale. Can't see any of that being re-invested in players. We...

Re: Owen Coyle, Rovers manager

Not particularly happy with the appointment. However I'm more than willing to give him a chance and prove his worth as out manager.

Now we have a manager in place we can start to focus on re-signing players and getting new players in.

Re: it took 5 'managers' in 5 years but - Venky's, I forgive you.

Not all of it but certainly a large chunk of it. You only have to read some of the threads over on BRFCS to see it. And it's been going on to some degree from the moment they acquired the club. Ah fair enough, I avoid going there, only seen the people on Twitter and didn't see anything xenophobic t...

Things that make me angry about Rovers:

1. The stupidity and xenophobia of the Venkys Out mob.
2. Football shirts make me look fatter.

How exactly is it xenophobic?

Re: New Manager Thread

Not sure about Paul Clement. He'd be a good choice, but I think he'll end up as Bayern's assistant manager with Ancelotti in the summer.

He was Ancelotti's assistant at Chelsea, PSG and Real so it looks likely that's where he'd end up.

Re: Hyuga Tanner

I've heard good things about him. Hopefully he'll get a new contract and be given a chance in the first team.

Last thing we want to do is let him go without out giving him a chance and it turns out he's really good.

Re: The Computer Games Thread

Haven't played FM in a while, just moved to a new flat and haven't really had much time. Also been waiting for the update to come out.

Will start a new Rovers file when it does.
