    It's all atsu or nothing

    Well the young Newcastle winger atsu is the man we want but he has interested Celtic and forest.
    He is a talent but we have strong competition there.

    And.....its nothing.
    Not overly concerned as we should look to blood some of our promising youth ready for next season.
    Rankin Costello,Davenport and Buckley to a certain degree all need minutes under their belt,in readiness for next season.
    This is a play off sniff,next season we should be making the push for promotion.

    Rankin Costello is our future.
    What we just don't need at this club is some over paid Prem footballer, with a questionable attitude.
    Joe has showed alot of maturity in the games he has been introduced. And needs games. We need to introduce him more regularly and at the right times. Because his form will be erratic as a young player.
    He will only do all this, by having a clear pathway into the 1st team. Not being blocked by an overpaid Prem flop.
    Travis is worth about 5m+ right here & now.
    We know that because he has played. And we didn't get someone to block his chances of playing. If they are good enough, show faith, like with Trav. And you find out of they are good enough. We didnt need this Atsu and in glad it didnt happen.
    I'd have liked to see Brereton go out on loan for the rest of the season. He needs to start scoring goals again. And he won't get that chance in Rovers first team.

    There is a bright future for this club
    Of course in the summer we will need to smartly recruit but with so many bright hopefuls coming in and through,the future is looking ok.

    I agree with both of you.
    And I still have this nagging thought at the back of my mind that we shouldn't be writing Chapman off.
    Something has clearly gone wrong with him, but can he really have regressed so much that he's not even in contention?

    The whole transfer thing has become more and more farcical:
    ...a 50 million price-tag on Josh King's head...
    ...Man. Utd. scrabbling to sign a 30-year-old striker who has been playing in China!

    Bizarre.

    When Sean dyche first joined Burnley, they didn't have a pot to piss in. He had to sell their only proven asset in Charlie Austin and was forced to play the promising young players his predecessor Eddie Howe had assembled.

    You know the rest.

    I'm behind Rovers and our fledglings all the way. For me it's as exciting as new signings to see how they progress anyway.

    Good points, Saxo. Have a look at what I've written on the other current thread. I'd be interested to see what you, Robin and Champs think.
