    I remember him being quite highly rated a while ago, but the hype around him seemed to have died down a bit.

    Not sure how he has been getting on recently, but if the club want him regardless of what league we are in next season then I am sure Murphy and co have done their homework and feel that he'll be a good addition.

    They turned down £3m in January apparently, even though he had 6 months left on his deal.

    Must still be highly rated by Blackburn then. Could be a shrewd signing in that case.

    Some Blackburn fans on Twitter don't seem bothered, said he fails to live up to his potential etc.

    Not that that matters as Cooper is good at getting the best out of "bad" players.

    If he has potential that he has "failed to live up to" at Blackburn, you can be sure that Cooper will get it out of him.

    Indeed, always hard to tell the truth with what opposition fans think, half our fans hated Yates and now they love him.

    3 goals 10 assists, sounds similar to Zincs.

    Surridge is another great example. Dog shit according to Stoke fans, but Murphy and Cooper saw something in him and he's been excellent for us. Boro fans weren't keen on Spence either.

    The club will have done their research before making their move for Rothwell, of that I have no doubt.

    I genuinely have zero clue who he is but I trust Coops and Dane.

    My Blackburn mate said hes good but goes missing in games. Thats like Zinc to me but if he can replicate the stats above with some improvement from Super Cooper surely we are laughing on a free?

    Does he play Yates's position or Zincs?

    Also a case of he's not ours anymore so we can slag him off.

    Derby fans were like that with Ebosele, as soon as he signed a pre-contract with Udinese he was crap.

    Blackburn fans were desperate for him to stay in January.

    But like said, fans opinions really are pointless to listen too.

    Could have just stopped after the first sentence

    I agree, I'm sure our fan base has said similar as well about players, it's human nature.

    13th placed Stoke fans still say Play off bound Sam Surridge is wank

    Mentioned Rothwell previously on the Summer transfer thread:

    Central midfield I'd like to see us go for Joe Rothwell. There's also Josh Laurent who we were linked with earlier in the season also and our old friend Ben Osborn both available too.
    Wing backs: James Bree and Lee Buchanan probably the only worthwhile ones chasing.
    Up front: If we want pace/trickery to flank Davis/Surridge and replace Johnson then maybe David Brooks oould be tempted? Josh Bowler next option.

    So, without spending a single penny on transfer fees, the template could change to:

    Samba
    Worrall Cook McKenna
    Laryea Yates Rothwell Buchanan
    Wallace Swift
    Surrdige

    Which if we're still in this league next year, would be quite the side.
    Thought he was excellent for them when they came to the CG. Nippy little player very good at find pockets of space and laying the ball on.

    Think if we went for him he's the Garner replacement.

    30/09/2021: It's only 8 points to the play-offs. Doesn't matter if we're 20th having lost three times as many games as we've won so far. I fancy us now that Hughton's gone.

    Nixon reporting that Blades are keen given the history between Rothwell and Hecky.
