    Robins

    Bad cobdition to play. Wind ice etc
    Long journey
    Take point all day long and move on
    Another away game sat so ill take it
    Alot of dark arts going on
    Shoild have had a pen. Absolute disgrace. Its assault
    Neither team showed quality
    We kept ball ok but playing backwards
    Max twisted his ankle early
    Callum a bright spark
    Pushed walsh firther fwd 2nd half
    Just one of those games
    Another pt to our total
    Unbeaten. Good ckean sheet run
    Fleetwood cross alot. Make it difficult
    Better weather we wud have created more chances
    We didnt use wind
    Brill turn and shot by walsh
    Max shud have thrown himself st rebound
    They tried get mcallum sent off
    Horrendus conditions. Simple as that
    We are still a work in progress
    Fleetwood squad of men
    Lets move on and play better next time
    2 wins and a draw away lately
    Bristol rovers have made signings so diff game
    May be cause to change the team
    Business might be dine b4 window
    We r teying to keep players but bids have come in
    From prem team foe mcallum. Over 1 million
    Club turned it down
    Hoowfully keep him. Its not enough for him
    Are we steing ebough to hold him? We need to be. His value will rise

    No doubting the offer isn't the final one.

    Still 3 days to go.

    Ideally sell him for a good few and loan him back. Use the money to strengthen. If there’s nothing out there, then keep him

    He is better than mason. I used to be on fence but he is. I do not wa t to lose him. It could unbalance our promotion push which is worth more to the club in thr long run

    I wonder how much robons is expecting?

    2.5m? 5m? Surely no more?

    no need to loan him back if thats the case. Heart isnt in it, same as Maddison.

    £1m isn’t a big bid really - some on here were saying we should ask for £10m.

    We are a desperate L1 club, add about £500k onto that and I think he’ll be gone

    Better than only having one left back surely? I don’t buy the no heart thing. We fucked Maddison up by shoving him wide to shoehorn joe Cole into the team

    Sell him, bring Mason in and buy a proven scorer at this level and top 2 it is.

    It's the add on stuff that will be important. Think McCallum needs a rest anyway. Put Mason in on Saturday. Let Allen loose if he's fit too.

    Was told yesterday that bid was 1.5 million.
    Let's be realistic here.
    And we knew this would come back to bite us.... with people choosing not to attend games, the club need to recoup money.
    Obvious way of doing it.
    If you aren't going to home games out of choice, don't dare to moan when we sell players.

    MR more likely to be pissed off if can't reinvest any of the money. Club would make more money out of McCallum in the summer, anyway and can then use any funds strategically re squad / balancing books. Cup run must have made more income than budgeted for (especially if we beat Blues)

    If he goes and we don’t bring in a replacement I’ll be fuming. The best chance we’ve had of promotion back to the champ, do not blow it now! If it’s the right price and it helps us bring in a replacement plus a forward, then I’m all for it.

    We aren’t going to bring in a forward we have just spent £750k on Godden

    A forward is not just a striker. A pacey winger might also add another option off the bench.

    Nothing better than things like this to see people start talking nonsense in preparation for getting outraged.

    If that’s true and happens che sara. Beginning of the season Brandon Mason was our best player so not too bothered. If it happens, be interesting if Robins brings someone in.

    I’ve been calling for a winger but with Hiwula out of favour, would there be any point?

    He’s no idiot, he’ll have a plan for if he goes.

    As for £1m, that values a “Premiership quality” player at not too much more than Godden. I’d say bearing in mind where we are £1.75m to £2m plus a loan for rest of season gets him.

    Then we can add him to the list of players who’ve left us for better things and gone on to hardly kick a ball.

    But who’s there to cover if Mason gets injured? You can’t gamble on the fact that he won’t get injured at some point during the rest of the season, then what will we do?

    He’s pissed off as he just watched a load of big blokes play anti-football against us & he knows points on the board are better than games in hand, I doubt he’s pissed about McAllum as he’s dealt with that stuff every window so far.
    I dare say he’s also a bit chuffed that we didn’t cave in, that’s no easy feat dealing with all their shit and coming away with a point.

    No it doesn’t - we would have the lowest budget in the Championship by far and could still be playing in front of the lowest attendances

    If or when McCallum goes.
    What would be more preferred a new striker or to try and get walsh in on a permanent deal?

    A striker is worth more than a left back

    Also he seems very good at using social media to build up interest in his players
