IT was good to see Josh King had the chance to showcase his talents at Wembley on Wednesday night with Norway.

England weren’t much cop but he did well.

But I am still unsure of what the future holds for him at Rovers.

He’s very quick, he’s got talent, but I think he lacks a footballing brain.

He’s got no problem using his unbelievable pace to go on a mazy run but then he’s got to look up for his team-mates.

I also think he could work harder when he hasn’t got the ball and track back more.

Of course he can get better at that and he can get better at improving his final pass too.

But I think he is somebody who, if a club came in for him, Rovers would seriously have to look at the deal.

There have been plenty of deals this week with the arrival of three new players at the club.

I’m confident Jason Steele, Shane Duffy and Ryan Tunnicliffe will fit straight in because I’ve got no doubts Gary Bowyer will have done his homework on all three of them.

He’s not one of those managers who goes out and brings players in willy-nilly.

He studies a player and he knows exactly what he wants and needs them to do.

He’s now got a useful squad which is learning all the time.

Football wise I’ve got no problems at all with the players he has got at his disposal but, as I say most weeks, they could still be stronger mentally.

To be fair, though, they are a young squad and you only get stronger mentally from experience. You can’t expect it to be there straight away.

One way of getting that straight away is buying ready-made experienced players.

But money is tight at Blackburn, like at many other clubs, and those players cost more.

The good thing about bringing in younger lads is that they are not going to set you back as much wage wise.

And if they do get their mentality right that will make them better players and, if they play regularly for two or three seasons, you could be looking at making a tidy profit on them if and when they do move on.

In many ways you are investing in your future.

Of course you still need to pick up results and it was a shame to see us lose to Wolves on Saturday.

It’s not been too bad a start, though, as we’ve had some tough games.

I would have liked more points on the board but I’d sooner be in Blackburn’s position than a lot of other clubs.
