plus its only a month long loan.
Eh?
Rovers are delighted to announce the signing of Jack Rodwell on a deal until the end of the season.
Who do you think we're loaning him from? :D
They obviously edited the tweet. It now says "short term deal". Never read the actual article.

Re: Jack Rodwell

I think there's a difference in the point of career with the likes of Murphy and Whittingham though, plus its only a month long loan.

In the past we've also had success with players who appear wash ups: Bellamy, Santa Cruz etc.

Seems I'm making the same point as Dan....

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Reading, Wed, 22 August 2018, KO 19:45

Unlucky not to push the win through, though given the first half a draw is a good result. Let's hope Armstrong and Samuel aren't out for long....

Am I thinking of Heaton? I always remember Cardiff’s keeper playing a blinder every time we played them

Edit: This irrelevant because Bradley Dack
Ah i follow now. Was going to say we are neither playing Cardiff nor does Marshall play for Cardiff anymore.... My reading bad.

I’m hoping Marshall doesn’t have one the games where he’s unbeatable like he used to have against us for Cardiff

Re: Chesterfield - manager on the brink of not being so!

Works the other way too, where you turn people down because you think you've got someone starting, only for them to not turn up.

Have you not taken notice of the American sports complex? Ties don't happen unless it's after 15 minutes in American football.

Re: England Squad

I think Sterling undoubtedly gets a rough ride from the press... the old primark and bathroom stories more so than during the world cup. In a similar vein to the treatment Ozil has received in Germany it's hard to ignore his minority status as a factor. Whether it is the sole, or even main reason i...

Re: England Squad

:yeahright: It's also very easy to class everything as discrimination when you have a particular characteristic. I wouldn't know - I'm a white man who has had every privilege that brings with it and that is a very powerful mask. I think it would be rather churlish of me to suggest I know better than...

Re: England Squad

It's also very easy to class everything as discrimination when you have a particular characteristic. As an "equal opportunities" recruiting manager, bottom of the list is a white man. Which is just as discriminating as any other hiring practise. Personally, I mostly ignore that "guidance" as the obv...
