Not good enough for Rovers IMO. I heard he played well against Birmingham as a sub but I haven't seen him do anything worth shouting about in his other appearances. For a small guy his pace isn't exactly scintillating and his positioning seems dreadful at times.

Sorry to see him go as I for one thought he was ok and better than a number of others. He might have lacked a little pace but had a good football brain which was sometimes a little to quick for one or two of the others.
Good luck lad and earn yourself a permanent move to a decent club. There are others we need to shift pretty **** quick if anyone is desperate enough.
He probably would not have got a place in our improving side.

Not to happy about this, I thing he is a decent player, we were 3 down when he came on against Birmingham and he really made a difference, perhaps not first choice but definitely better than others who are still with us, and we need cover.

I find this very hard to understand when Bowyer went to the trouble to bring him back again. Hope it works out for the lad he must be dissapointed.

strikes me as a great 'squad' player, talented, hard working and one that Bowyer can trust.
On the other hand though, he wasnt going to get in the side in front of Cairney, Lowe, Williamson, Dunn, King, Rochina and now Marshall.
The lad wants first team football (and we need to keep wage bill down), so I suppose he needed to go - Marrow is in a similar situation.

I could be way off the mark here but i reckon its a case of GB growing more confident in the type of player he is looking to sign. We all know he got a fair bit of stick initially for "bringing his mates in" but to be fair he was a rookie manager, probably with relatively few contacts within the game compared to an experienced manager and with no real clout to attract proven players. He had no choice but to bring in players who he knew. Unfortunately for Judge we are a million miles from where we were last season.

just don't think he's good enough for a team aspiring to return to the prem & definitely not good enough to play in the prem. Having said that, there are quite a few others who needed to be moved before him.

Trust GB to make the right call.

Ruffled a few venky lovers feathers the other day.
Just answer this-
Are things better or worse since they took over? Have they said sorry or admitted they got things wrong in any way? Is the long-term future of the club safe in their hands? How many thouands of fans have they alienated?

Hi VICN. If 1956 is when you started going to Ewood, mine is 1943.
To answer your questions, Yes we are in worse shape that when Venkys bought us. Being Indian upper class they will probably never lower themselves to apologise or admit they did anything wrong. A pity, because such an apology and a statement of their intentions would go a long way to reducing some of the animosity a lot of fans have towards them.
Yes, they have alienated a large proportion of Rovers fans, possibly because they haven't a clue about football and how a life long supporter sees his club.
Is the long term future of the club safe in their hands ? Unfortunately we don't have my classmate Jack Walker owning the club any more. Venkys own it and we are stuck with them.
After two horrendous years of management changes, relegation, Shebby, etc, it does seem that Venkys might have learned some hard lessons. They are definitely still putting money into the club and have just bought two decent players. We seem to have more stability on the pitch and in the backroom than we have had for 2 years or more. So what is the alternative to Venkys ? I don't think we have one. All we can do is hope that they mean what they say, and will fund our return to the Premiership where the big money and advertising is.
We seem to be going in the right direction, but it will take a few years to get there. So have faith mate. We are better off than a lot of teams.

What a stupid question, of course things are worse since they took over it is there for every one to see. Have they said sorry, I think so to the tune of £36 million quids worth last year. We don't want fancy words just action, would you prefer us to have owners who say sorry and then don't put any money in.
For the long term future are they trying to put things right and are they making progress ? I think we can all see that they have learnt some lessons and they are now making progress. The drop in fan base is similar to that of any club that gets relegated from the Premiership.

Just watched City destroy West Ham on the telly.

I genuinely fear for you in your replay. I honestly think that City will see you lot as a genuine potential banana skin so will most likely put an almost full strength side out.

Look, I'm just pointing out the facts here mungo. Even somebody as numb as you must realise you're massive underdogs for the replay. The fact I'm saying they see you as a potential banana skin is actually a compliment to you lot.

You look...I don't think any realistic Rovers fan expects us to win at City. Would you lot expect to?
Seeing as they put an average of 4 goals per game away against anybody at home, it's fair to say they'll put a few past us also.
Don't fear for us.....fear us, in March.

Any more silly comments from you.

And someone as dumb as a closet Rovers admirer like yourself should know,we expect to get beat,perhaps even a good thumping,but its not our cup final,when you play Rovers,its like your cup final,xmas prezzie and league championship all in one and losing hurts you much more than a cup tie like ours will hurt us. Its also worth remembering that 99% of the country expected us to get thumped last Saturday,look what happened.We could have even won it with a bit of luck.
