Man, I dunno. I really thought that he & Whittingham would be crucial; but in our two wins, they haven't been.

We have Scunthorpe, Fleetwood and Shrewsbury all coming up in September. They might not be everyones idea of a big game but these clubs currently occupy a higher league position than Rovers. Job done today by beating MK Dons but if i were Tony Mowbray i would be telling my players by the end of September i want to be in the top three in the league.

Hmm, doesn't really confirm nor deny much other than a senior player, but it makes the likelihood more towards Graham, given his grand start total at 2. If we get enough money for him (upwards of £3 million if it's club out of the division, £4 million if it's in division.)

If he goes I imagine it'll be more about getting his wages off the books than the fee, so I think we'd accept lower.

You're probably right, you can easily get another striker for at least half the wages at this level, and he could produce. Plus he's 31, getting anything out of him right now is a bonus.

FFP at this level is largely dictated by wages to turnover too. I'd imagine Feeney might be another who could leave.

We should do everything we can to keep Mulgrew though. And crown him king.

I think Feeney must have a negative appearance fee. It's the only way I can think he would ever get a game....

Mulgrew is essential to keep.

Graham; well perhaps we should have got someone on loan....

Obviously delighted with the win and was great to celebrate 4 home goals (when was the last time we did that in the league....)

For those not at the game it would be easy to think it was a dominant Rovers display. However, that was not the case. For large periods of the game, MK Dons looked the better side who passed it around very well at times. It's clear to see that Bennett is uncomfortable on the wing. He always drifts inside which is so frustrating when we were trying to get the ball out wide on the right but no one to play it too!! Whereas as soon as Chapman came on, he provided immediate width and looked threatening everytine he received the ball. I think this guy could be really important this season.

Samuel looks a threat with his pace and power and I'm looking forward to maybe see Dack playing him behind him with Chapman and Conway providing the width. I think that would be a very dangerous front 4 with Evans and Smallwood covering behind. Add Nyambe at right back and Lenihan partnering Mulgrew, this team should get promoted.....

The strength of a teram can be measured by the quality of its reserves. Danny Graham is one to keep.

I always measure my teram by its depth. Three fathoms last time I checked.
