26 Jul 2014 11:21:47
Middlesbrough are set to announce the signing off Doncasters James husband after the Rochdale game for a fee of 500,000


26 Jul 2014 14:14:11
Great piece of business, bags of potential. Don't worry George Friend isn't going anywhere before people start debating, although Andy Halliday is likely to leave.

Interesting to see we have offered Curtis Main to Doncaster for a good rate. Clearing the attacking ranks ready for two fresh faces upfront.


Boro looking at former arsenal forward
jay simpson who as just terminated his contract in thailand


Keep main for god sakes great potential one of the best left


Curtis main, luke Williams and smallwood are just not good enough for the championship get rid quick.


I agree I feel unless we have another striker we should not get rid of main as what will happen if kike gets injured first game and we have to play kamara or fewster as they will be the only ones left.


Smallwood is good enough for the championship, I rate him over whitehead tbh, he isn't as good as leadbitter or butterfield but he is still a tallent, also luke williams and curtis main aren't good enough in their positions, they are not strikers, they can't score in this leauge like a striker should, but they are fast, strong and know how to play a pass, they would be good in tomlins role or williams left wing and main right wing, but let's get off them 3, I think husband is a great singing, aswell as omerou mejias and kike they are all brilliant additions to the squad, if we haft to wait a long time for players of that calliber, then I will deffinatly be patient, UTB


Curtis Main is not good enough. He is 22 now, not a kid, and should be showing much more than he did last season. Lots of effort but no result, 6 goals in 45 games. time to be moved on.




26 Jul 2014 11:18:27
News just coming out that Boro have signed RB James Husband from Doncaster for 500K.


James Husbands a left back


What side of defence does he play?

Boro man

He is a left back cover for george friend, and also he can be left wing back when we play 5 at the bsck, great signing in my eyes, only 20 years old remember, this means that robinson from liverpool runour will not follow through, any ideas on the right back?




24 Jul 2014 18:23:09
Dean Furman will be the latest player to leave Doncaster following the departures of Coppinger and Wellens. Furman is in talks with former club Bradford City.


Would love this to be true


24 Jul 2014 22:49:18

16 Jul 2014 19:53:44

30 Jun 2014 12:06:07
Rumour that Barnsley Fc are interested in Ex Huddersfield Captain Peter Clarke after his release, also Fleetwood and Doncaster are rumoured to be interested in the big centre half.


Rumour also has him to be bound for PNE, could just be a simplistic link with Simon Grayson though.


Not saying that we are signing him, but former Brighton man Will Hoskins training with Barnsley.




24 Jun 2014 12:49:54
Doncaster Rovers winger David Cotterill is set to become Birmingham City's eighth new signing of the summer

Well.1 isn't Paul Green, Gone to Rotherham.


03 Jul 2014 16:02:37
Gilks gone to Burnley, That's 2 of your 4.


1 & 3 aren't happening 2- sharp isn't returning & 4 - Jordan Obika i've never heard of I think you mean Jonathan obika which is reported to be training with rovers

06 Jun 2014 12:24:38
Doncaster Rovers to offer £250k + James Husband for Hull City striker Matty Fryatt


06 Jun 2014 14:52:07
Maybe James husband will go if Hull offer Fryatt + 750K. Not a hope DRFC would deal under your terms.


06 Jun 2014 23:37:43
Why would you pay and offer a player for someone who is out of contract, make more sense to just offer the player a contract


10 Jun 2014 11:22:05
Well Al-24 that's that one shot out of the water. Joined Forest.


Fryatt is a free agent so there would be no fee to anyone.




03 Jun 2014 08:41:21
Hearing that Charlton and Blackpool are being linked with Paul Quinn from Doncaster.




01 Jun 2014 09:59:01

22 May 2014 16:28:31
Nigel Reo-Coker has interested Doncaster, Sheff Utd and Preston however the midfielder is hoping to move to a Championship club


Donny Rovers to sign Brian Stock as he has been released by Burnley




16 May 2014 10:50:29
Newly promoted Brentford looking to bolster their striking options may make a move for Aberdeen's Calvin Zola with defender Shaelum Logan moving in the opposite direction after completing a successful loan spell with the Dons.

Also, relegated Doncaster's Billy Paynter understood to be in talks with the Bees as he still feels he can do a job in the Championship.


Billy Paynter is not going to any other club as he said that he would say at Doncaster Rovers


I think he is actually out of contract, and is not being re engaged, so its not up to BP.


Told You!.


16 May 2014 17:28:08
Logan has been released, so no swap deal.


19 May 2014 10:44:36
Zola and Paynter are has-beens
Brentford not interested in either




07 May 2014 18:15:02
These deals have been agreed:

Billy sharp- southampton to ipswich
Shane lowry- millwall to celtic
Gabriel tamas- doncaster to millwall
Luke ayling- yeovil to brentford
Matt gilks- blackpool to leeds united


No they havent, Leeds have not agreed anything


Sharpy seems to be linked with Town every summer, probably not going to happen unfortunately.


08 May 2014 00:05:25
Ismail miller to millwall rumoured

Gary Johnson is saying that Luke Ayling is one of the yeovil key players staying for next season


Sharp always linked purely because he once said he was humbled by the Ipswich fans clapping the goal he scored after his child died. It won't happen.


If Ayling goes it'll be to a championship team


George444, Brentford will be a Championship team next season (they got promoted from League 1 this year in 2nd place)


Sorry, I was thinking of bradford. I still think it's unlikely he'll go to brentford given some of the other teams interested


We don't want billy sharp, he is old and finished, much rather we got chris o'grady


What are you talking about, billy sharp is a cracking player


O'Grady's older than Sharp haha


You what ayling will not leave the mighty glovers. #comeonyeo


Of course he will. Out of contract and best offer is 1200 a week, when he can get 2000 elsewhere, would you stay. Likewise Webster, best offer 1000, he will get 500 on top of that, and be away.


Those numbers are all wrong


I tell you what, they are NOT WRONG.


Well the numbers you've quoted are less than those players were on last time we were in league 1 so they're certainly not 'best offer'


Ah you mean the year TYFC made a loss of over half a million, The year FFP was introduced. 60% of turnover is all that's allowed. That's precisely why the "Offers" are less. Do try and keep up.


A good chunk of that loss was attributed to player bonuses and key players for yeovil in league 1 have usually be on around 2000 sometimes more


It doesn't matter what the money went on ( Bonuses, Wages, Signing on fees, Loan fees ), it went on payments to players. From last season onward only 60% of turnover can be used for such, not 120%. Therefore the wages have to be trimmed accordingly (eg drop of 50% to comply ). now do you see where I get the figures?.


Wrong about Tamas, Joined Watford




06 May 2014 18:16:54
filipe morais terminates contract with stevenage fc by mutual consent, and is due to sign for doncaster rovers by next week.


Not true he signing for Aberdeen FC when he gets back from his holidays late next week.




17 Apr 2014 14:00:23
Doncaster will sign Andre Gray from Luton and will see marc de val fernandez go in the opposite direction.


03 May 2014 17:08:55
We told you paul dickov was useless and some of you accused us oldham fans of sour grapes. Now do yo believe us!



17 Apr 2014 13:58:11
Doncaster Rovers will sign luton forward andre grey in the summer.


21 Apr 2014 15:46:41
Already apparently agreed a deal with Coventry City but i'm still hopeful it's just rumours and he stays to help us stay in the football league

They have had him on trial before, why would they now be "In for him".




31 Jan 2014 17:13:10
Conor Wickham and Steven Bouldry for Doncaster Rovers, the former on loan, the latter to sign a longer term contract


Not too sure re Conor Wickham, if he wants to play for Wednesday again! Steve Boldry's name has been mentioned throughout this window so there is some substance in this one




31 Jan 2014 09:40:28
Just spoke To Donny Groundsman Matt Gartland this morning and he was talking to PD this morning and he is hoping to complete signings for 2 players today.

Miguel Llera from Sheffield Wednesday (Transfer)
Conor Wickham from Sunderland (Loan)


31 Jan 2014 11:59:59
wickham would not sign for Donny when
He already said he wants to come back to Wednesday
If he's loaned out

No chance lol


31 Jan 2014 20:21:00
Really funny wind up post.
If Wickham goes anywhere it's back to Hillsborough where he loves it.
Llera needed at S6 as cover for injuries. Wouldn't be allowed to move to rivals



28 Jan 2014 09:30:22
Donny in for Luke varney on loan as leeds sign Leroy lita also Diouf being mentioned again


28 Jan 2014 10:12:38
Where did you here that Leeds had signed Lita

Leeds united fans website


Lita is at Brighton


28 Jan 2014 17:31:08
meet the board meeting confirmed bramhall in full control, no investment from him administration a real possibility. plans for hotel at keepmoat ( guess whose company will build that, )Richardson was a saint compared to bramhall

So overall what is the future looking like for rovers?


29 Jan 2014 17:26:27
not good, gavin Baldwin is trouble for all shareholders, too self motivated ask people what know him.

29 Jan 2014 19:20:58
the mud slinging has started, bramhall said jr not wanted by sequenta witnessed by member of Mondays meeting top table member. as the top table consisted of himself and he wasn't at the sequenta meeting, paul dickov also not at sequenta meeting, mr watsons son again not at the sequenta meeting that leaves mr Baldwin does anybody trust mr Baldwin no.

Just which company does Bramhall own then?. Not Keepmoat ( that's where most of his wealth came from, selling it ). Not that I care that much who builds or owns the Hotel/Casino. seems like a way of making small amount of cash, after all there are many hotels in Doncaster, which fill rarely. I suppose in season the opposition could stay there overnight, but there are many teams within 60min travel time in this league, so that's not about to make a bundle.


30 Jan 2014 16:30:49
4URBAN BASED IN HARROGATE, another major bujlding firm. could someone explain what bramhall and Watson spent the 17 million on not players and I suppose they won't expect it back if they left.

30 Jan 2014 19:05:29
the talk of jr being involved with Barnsley is probably off the mark, but I hope he stays involved with football he's the kind of man that is needed with his desire and enthusiasm good luck to him and I know the rovers are going to regret him leaving giving bramhall and his gang full control with no opposition

30 Jan 2014 21:25:15
John stayed with the Rovers so long out of loyalty not business sense, so why would he take on Barnsley? No chance.
Didn't get to the owners' meeting. Is it covered anywhere? From snippets I have heard, it sounds that Bramall wants out if the money is there and he is struggling to get anyone, even his own man, to be chairman.
Sequentia ought to expose the lie told about JR if that is what it was. JR is still the only one I would trust to put Rovers interests first.

31 Jan 2014 11:39:39
couldn't agree more jr was rovers thro and thro bramhall ought to expand on the so called 17 million he talks about

Not too difficult to calculate. When did they "Come on board" 2006 was it. Club lost 3 million a year covered by share issues and loans from the 3 amigos. 2014 now, so effctivly 8 years, 1 million each per year TB/DW/JR so there is your 17 ( or thereabouts for TB/DW. Though how much is "Loans" and how much is "Shares" I couldn't guess.


05 Feb 2014 12:56:08
rubbish, only loan by owner was before Watson and bramhall came on board and that is money owed to jr. when w and b came on board they bought shares owned by jr of which 9 percent was given to bramhalls desired choice of chairman whose name I forgot and also to Baldwin for the company who hold the lease to the stadium,

Check the accounts, you will see loans owed to Ryan, Wetzel, Bramall Watson, and others.


05 Feb 2014 17:21:46
my mistake I assumed that if they are adamant they are not going to pay jr back I assume that there's must have been a gift like the 10 million given to Birmingham uni to have is name above the building door

Not sure he "Donated" 10 million, as the place ( Music Centre ) only cost just over that, and there were many subscribers.
However, it was though the "Liz & Terry" Charitable trust, so basically the money was Interest on the 100 million he lodged in the trust, therefore not HIS money.


07 Feb 2014 00:58:03
For a man of his personal wealth it is a mark of his commitment to Rovers that if JR demands his £4 million, his response would be to put the club into administration rather than his hand in his pocket. He knows JR thinks more about Rovers than he does and would never do anything to hurt Rovers so is calling his bluff. He would have no qualms, I fear. Sustainability is an excuse for TB for a risk averse approach which without a lot of luck will lead to a downward spiral. We don't want reckless speculation but we need to be stronger to be sustainable and we need investment for improvement. He has the money to do it if he wanted. Another striker will probably be necessary before the end of the season if we are to score enough goals to keep ahead of the chasers. Success at this level will generate support and income and we are not too far away from having a competitive team. I look forward to seeing them tare at Brighton on Saturday and to seeing Sharp making amends or exacting revenge for the last time. A victory will give us hope.

I do not disagree with anything you wrote there.


09 Feb 2014 09:13:05
again I don't disagree there as got to be an ulterior motive for bramhall to staying at the club as for the money he donated to Birmingham uni is clear for all to see on his website. he should leave take Baldwin with him get the investment neededto sustain our current status and stop talking about casinos and hotels. furthemore the consept of club Doncaster is doomed to fail does anybody beleave that the rugby league would allow the dons into super league no. they change the rules every year to safe guard the wigans and st Helens of this world.

09 Feb 2014 19:09:49
Brighton showed that we are still short and they were beatable. Greer is their captain, remember. Our young Goalie was good and the defence looked sound until Tamas went off. Quinn was skinned second half. Billy Sharp looked anything but. Worrying! Duffy was lightweight when he didn't have the ball and Keegan was steady but one-dimensional. Coppinger still looks our biggest threat by far and Brown is dogged and put himself about. Why we pussy-footed in midfield and seemed reluctant to attack first half I don't know. Husband seemed the only one with urgency. Second half at least we got some efforts on goal. Wellens and Sharp out for Barnsley, Sharp for longer. Key time. Reinforcements?

17 Feb 2014 11:51:55
Glad to see a new striker in. Bowery did not click on Saturday but made a nuisance of himself and it was noticeable how we deteriorated as an attacking force when he went off and Cotterill came on and strolled around.
Someone more experienced might have been better but credit to the Board on getting someone in. Next few games are vital.

Predicted that signing couple of days prior. Am I ITK, nope. Just good detective work


28 Feb 2014 11:52:57
all quiet on the rovers front, not surprising been on their web sight very poor just old news, tried supporters club even worse doubt if it actually exists. viking not bad but why does it exist is it with the official supporters or in direct competition. paul mayfields bus organisation is good but confused whose side he's on. little wonder its easy for the current owners ride roughshod over the club. how quickly the supporters club forgot the good work by john ryan too busy thinking of theirselfs.

28 Feb 2014 19:48:14
Club does appear helmless and soulless at the moment. Dickov pleased with hitting targets and how great the players have been! He has been watching a different team at Brighton, against Barnsley and at Yeovil to me. Just like we know that if we are not well clear with 15 minutes to go in a game, we'll get pulled back and usually beaten, if we are not well clear of the relegation zone by the end of March, we'll get dragged back in and slide down. Will the club care or just set a new target? We are certainly not too good to go down and I would like to see more character and bite in both boxes (and in the Directors' box).
We miss JR and his passion but he has been manoeuvred out. We need energy around the club and in the games and we need to go on the front foot and playing with grit. It will be a test of Dickov if he gets a reaction at Bournemouth.

01 Mar 2014 17:58:12
bad bad result at Bournemouth but it goes to show what investment can do Bournemouth took the investment offered at the beginning of the season and now firmly established in the championship with plans afoot to move foreward whilst our leaders declined the chance

01 Mar 2014 21:25:37
We don't look up to it or up for it and that is a real concern. Bournemouth, not one of the big teams, hammered us today and we did not or could not react. That should ring alarm bells.

13 Mar 2014 22:57:15
Will we get defensive reinforcements or try to get by with what we've got? If it is the latter, the wheels will come off very quickly. We need to shore up at the back to get through the rest of the season.

27 Mar 2014 00:31:24
Pleased to see Neill is in. Let's hope that he is not injured in training before the first game. Leeds will be a big test of where we are. We need to bully them and be clinical in front of goal.

15 Apr 2014 18:36:19
I was at the Ipswich game and was disappointed by our lack of belief. Ipswich were there for the taking but we did not threaten the goal enough or get at them with a passion. What's the point in playing Sharp unless we are going to create chances for him? Why faff about with one-twos around the box when a shot and a follow-up at least would stand a chance.
Brown was brilliant yet we don't anticipate the flick-ons. If we had looked for the second ball after crosses in the second half, we would have had numerous shooting chances. Johnston has been brilliant but was at fault for their first and could have anticipated the second.
Coppinger is a different-class but Keegan and Furman are one-dimensional and shouldn't be put on the spot. Defence is vulnerable to tall strikers and I hope Neill is back to shore it up. We need to show more belief against Derby and go for the win.
Millwall will be up for it and Reading are a bogey team so we need something against Derby and we need to get Sharp into the game if we are to score.

19 Apr 2014 23:06:35
Dickov's excuse we are now annoyingly hearing time and again: we were everybody's favourites to go down! Who has he been listening to? It is not the fans' and not JR's view! We didn't want to be in this position, didn't have to be in this position and we don't want to hear this defeatism!
It has been Bramall's and Watson's view perhaps. Given the Derby showing we have nothing in us to win a game and no desire to fight, Brown apart. Milwall will be a test of guts and ralls and whether Dickov's team has got any. The excuse will be trotted out again if they beat us so Dickov and the team have got nothing to lose and no need to try. We look like the easiest team in the division to beat at the moment and those below us will get something out of the remaining games. We look worse than League 1 teams. Let's hope Brown can make it; he and Copps are our only hopes! Sharp looks lost and the team appears rudderless and without belief!

27 Apr 2014 16:53:11
Do we have the strength, desire and quality to survive? Excuses are already in. Blame refs! Blame injuries! Blame budget! Blame crowd!
We are too flaky when the pressure is on.
We need mental strength as well as physical power. They won't be hungry or prepared to put their bodies on the line and get injured. We need to be!
We need a fired-up Sharp in with a chance or two against Leicester. He should have stayed on yesterday.
Robinson is likely to miss an open goal if he gets a chance. He's gone backwards.
Brown tires in the second half but who can blame him.
Wellens will let them pass if he is unfit, as will Cotterill if he is fit. Why does Cotterill never pass to/ find Sharp like Copps does?
Keegan will be anonymous. Furman makes more of an impact but is a headless chicken.
Where is Duffy? Why keep on Neill if he can't play?
Tamas is not incisive enough. Will he ever hit the target or pick out a player in the box?
We've got to go for a win at Leicester but how?
Will Husband be fit?
Team to win at Leicester 3. 5. 2
Johnstone, Tamas, Meite, Fit Neill, Coppinger, Furman, Fit Wellens, Keegan, Fit Husband, Brown, Sharp.
We will need Duffy, Quinn and McCombe in reserve, possibly Cotterill and Robinson too.
It will be a great escape if we win, but Copps, Sharp, Brown and a fit Wellens, Neill and Husband are the only ones who could do it.
We need to be two or three up by Half Time!

03 May 2014 14:19:22
Why on earth didn't we go for it? Sharp and Forrester? Dikov's decision!
