I’m excited to see what Brereton can achieve this season, I think the pressure’s largely off him now with the weight of expectation now shared with Gallagher.
Lee Bowyer will be very worried. Rovers form pre season has been excellent. A young Rovers team scored four goals in eight minutes at Kendal yesterday. Yes its only inferior oposition but apart from the Rangers game Rovers have found it quite easy. Blackpool should be a harder test at the weekend but there is nothing to suggest otherwise that Rovers should start the new season unbeaten in the preseason games.
Another game, another win, and another different line up it’s starting to feel like quite a big squad in my opinion; I wonder if Mowbray is thinking of selling/ loaning those who won’t get much time in the first team.
Same. I'd argue that he didn't particularly do anything wrong last season except be judged as a 7m sub. Aside from a couple of chances missed and was rarely ever played centrally.
With a pre season and a bit of confidence I think we might start to see some of the promise we invested in.
Shame that Hart went off injured as that now only leaves Bell at LB with William's and Hart crocked.
I'm hoping so. He was one of Oxford's best players when he was there, so I was a bit disappointed with his lack of appearances for us until the tail-end of the season. He's done really well in the friendlies (including that cracking goal vs Bury) and hopefully he'll get some much needed game time when the new season starts.
