    Really? Didn't he get you promoted, 15th and now 11th with your best player out injured for half the season? What's the biggie?

    You'll forgive me if I don't regard the views of a Villa fan and a ??? fan as being entirely serious, but seeing as you asked:

    1. I expect a squad that doesn't shit itself when it gets within sniffing distance of the playoffs (zero games in the top six in last three championship seasons).
    2a. I expect a manager not to sell our first-choice goalkeeper to a promotion rival, and completely fail to replace him with somone of the same quality.
    2b. I'd expect our goalkeeping coach to be someone with first-team experience, and not someone more suited to running kids' summer training camps.
    2c. I'd expect any manager to identify weak areas in the team and use the transfer window to strengthen them. Not ignore our back line while spunking 12 million on two non-scoring srikers (but see also (4))
    3. I'd hope our manager wouldn't dig out our young players in public (Nyambe, Travis, Brereton, Chapman) while protecting his favourites (Bennett, Mulgrew, Smallwood).
    4. I expect to play our players in their best position i.e. Don't stick a 6'4" striker on the wing while there's a natural winger not even making the squad.
    5 I expect our record against 'weaker' teams to be semi-decent. Wigan: one point from six. Charlton: three points. Barnsley: three points. Brum: one point. Luton: zero points. Huddersfield: one point.

    To address your points specifically, he had to get us relegated to get us promoted (and threw the championship away by playing a weakened squad against Charlton), and a four place improvement on least season, but only three points better off. (17-12-17 rather than 16-12-18) Not really progress. Dack being injured was a blow, but his absence wasn't why we concded 6 goals in our last two games.

    Sorry to be an arse here:

    He comes into a club that is in the relegation zone, and gets a record of 5W, 6D, 3L compared to the rest of the season which was 4W, 8D, 17L) and you failed to stay up on goal difference. He then takes you back up with his first full season at an absolute canter (96pts). He then gets you comfortably safe in the Championship which you weren't when he took over. Now there's slight improvement, whilst being owned by one of the most notoriously shit owners in League football. Your net spend is 19th out of all EFL clubs over the last 5 years.

    But he should walk? What are you actually after here?

    Also - lolling hard at the outpouring of emotion from Blues fans over a player who left after a massive career total of 41 games, all in a season where they stayed up on the final day whilst losing at home

    Frank shithousing in injury time was very reminiscent of Karanka in the Boro/Brentford semi a few years.back.

    New GK in, Which was a must and looks like Clarke will come back for the season which will be excellent as well.

    Football is back! Again!

    How's everyone feeling about their team before we kick off? I'm liking the squad depth that we have now. Farke has plenty of options in every position, maybe too many! We could still lose some of our young stars, but the recruitment has been savvy enough that we have replaced them already. I would love us to win it all again, and I think we should be the front runners but this is still the hardest league in the world to get promoted from and there are plenty of other teams also in with a shout. Fuck it, top 1 this year lads!

    Happy with Marshall and Byrne, Hope te Wierik proves a good signing and obviously keeping Clarke is a huge plus. Need more attacking options so let's see with that.

    No new (non-loan) defenders for the third season running...on the other hand, this should be the season when Rankin-Costello makes an impact, and this young lad Dolan we picked up from Preston has looked a real prospect in pre-season.
    Transfer kitty is largely dependant on whether we have sell-on clauses with King and Raya.

    Good for Tony Mowbray to be allowed to spend 200k on Middlesbrough's backup goalie. More ammo for Stan to use to complain he didn't get promoted in May.

    Not biting.

    Still waiting on one LB and one CB (at least). Latest rumour is that after we got gazumped for Ayala by a Saudi club, he flew over there and didn't fancy it (and who would blame him) and might sign for Rovers after all

    Ayala makes it:
    https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2020/september/ayala-arrives/

    So now just a proper left back and another DC as a stretch goal...

    We started last season really poorly as well, Then Rooney came in and fortunes changed, Is it that that initial influence has gone or is it not that simple? I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he's manager before long

    Manager is a dead man walking from last year I think. They've signed A LOT of players (again).

    Most managers would fancy their chances with that squad...I expect them to try big in hiring maybe Hughton or someone

    I dont even know. I may become a twitter ITK and tweet likely thing that might happen and delete ones that don't come off. Maybe even add some vague responses to questions.

    Are Derby signing Charlie Austin?
    There's a few interested.

    That kinda thing

    Should write for the Derby telegraph, They had an article on deadline day on how Leeds were signing Derby target Raphina ... Ever since they went under a national paper umbrella their journalism is a disgrace.

    I imagine we were very close to signing him for 20m when we wouldn't pay 1.8m for the striker from Germany.

    I don't know where they get this stuff

    Patrick Bamford should be England's main forward by now etc.

    Don’t know why I’ve only just seen Bobby Duncan signed for Derby few weeks ago. How’s he been @son_of_foley @Peter Griffin

    Starting in the u23s. From what I can tell since he binned his last agent his attitude seems a lot better, But that's about all I can tell you at this point.

    Decent defensive midfielder. Very combative, but his passing is simple and tidy. The Premier League was maybe a step too far, and it certainly didn't help not having a settled back line behind him. I'm sad he's been pushed out of the squad, but glad he has found another club.

    Not a lot past his name. Academy kid, only 17. Sounds like a good prospect from the Rovers forum:

    Jared Harlock is one to keep an eye on - changed the game since he's come on in midfield.
    Was also impressed by Jared Harlock in midfield. Playmaker who dictated the tempo in that game. Another one to keep an eye on for the U23.
    -Harlock was the conductor in the centre. Great energy, effective passer and a lovely slide through to Brennan for his goal.

    Sounds like a ready-made Travis replacement, who might link up well with Holtby. If he works out, might be time to bin off Evans.

    Barry Douglas and Harvey Elliott in?

    Would think thats the pressure on now to be hitting play-offs. Weakish league this year. Looks like Boro and Sheff Wed going for it too

    Bloody hell, I've been critical in the past, but that has to be the best window since the Venkys rolled up. Credit where it's due.
    Not convinced by the need for a 3rd GK if he comes, but everyone else is an upgrade/fills a gap in the squad. Would agree the pressure's on to finish top 6 minimum, I just hope he doesn't revert to type and starts putting square pegs in round holes.

    I would also say Sheff Wed have to go for it, they're on -7 at the moment.

    I would like him to stay but it is a bit awful atm. I blame Rooney for a lot of it. He needs to be taking a step back a little. It's not working with him there or in this setup so should be on the bench until they can 'in training' find a way to unlock him more.

    3 at the back was looking decent. I would only change to a 4 when Bielek is back and basically have him flip between being a CB/DM/CM during the game.

    Play is too static. With 3 at the back that suddenly unlocked Clarke and Wisdom breaking lines with the ball at feet (Keogh was basically the tactical crux of our game for X years). Bielek will bring that himself in spades. Is strong enough to drop into a back 3 when needed and with him there you MIGHT get away with Sibley beside Knight. All of a sudden a central area that was dead for 10 games becomes POPPING.

    CB's moving. Dynamic CM with attacking intent. Jowziack/Ibe/Lawrence/Whittaker on wings. Decent fullbacks. You are 1 very good striker away from being competitors.

    You can only blame Rooney in so much as the Manager feels he has to play him and he will play wherever he is asked. Let's face it, We saw how he worked best in the team last season.

    I saw that. Absolutely disgusted, but unfortunately not surprised. It is Millwall.

    In other news; top of the league, having a laugh! The through ball for Josh Martins' goal will surely be flagged as pornography.

    Well I didn't want to slur an entire support, but it is Millwall - someone posted a link to one of their forums before our game against them. Bloody hell, it was like the 1970's in there.

    Norwich have gained 19 points after the 70th minute of games this season. Top of the league while still missing around 10 players with injuries.

    Mental.

    Blackburn were great today. Very unlucky to not get a point, and certainly one of the best teams we've played this season. You should be in the play offs at least at the end.
