Handy lad is Dempsey, he may not be a 6ft plus enforcer type of midfielder but he's one of those who can hold his own.

Aye, few glimpses of him and Morley together and they looked strong.

Good interview with him and him saying that he was never really fit since signing.

Days of a Karl Henry type are gone. Evatt’s wanting better footballers.

The best squads nearly always have two, three, four players who could be considered captaincy material and would ordinarily be captains of other squads.

We know Rico and Gethin are two who are of that type and watching that interview I get the impression Ddmpsey is another.

That can only be a good thing.

Rovers, reporting better than recent season ticket sales of 7000. Possibly sold more than Wigan now.

Cheapest adult ticket is £399, and £30 more for new applicants.  Not exactly attractive. Cheap for kids though.

Very much so.

In our Allardyce years we had

Speed, Hierro, Okocha, Chungy, Ricardo Gardner ... these were all international team captains. Bergsson too, at an earlier phase. Add Nolan & Davies as club captains.

Youri and Stelios were never captains but had 80 and 60 caps between them.

I'm sure I'll have missed some.

Intellegent, disciplined, experienced knowledgeable people.

Straying far too close to Coyle terrority now.

 

I think it's alright in a pre-season trip that includes a bit of "bonding", during the season it would have some unpleasant reminders of Coyle.

I'd go....?, Johnston, ?, Dapo, Dempsey, Aimson, Morley.

I think it's OK, but lose our first couple of games and the atmosphere will be "interesting"
