Tommy Rowe

Looks a good squad signing who’s obviously getting more game time than was expected. 

Clearly lacks pace, but does look a decent all round footballer. 

Doing a good job so far. Well done Tommy!

It would be all too easy for him to play the LWB / LB role cautiously, yet we’ve seen him:

- bomb past his marker for the goal v Brum

- in the middle of a melee at home to QPR

- brought down for penalty in the 6 yard box v Hull, as well as being a constant advanced outlet for Taylor Moore passes too

Of course he’s gonna struggle when faced up to a tricky winger, but I would say the past 3 games, since QPR at home, we’ve worked better as a team to not get him isolated.  Bowen didn’t really cause him that uncomfortable an afternoon on Saturday.

4 minutes ago, where's the joy said:

pound for pound the best summer signing of them all. Dasilva won't walk straight back in

Disagree, but very fortunate signing none the less.

I’m actually surprised how strong he is, going forward, 1 on 1. Several times he’s taken his man on near the oppositions box and got around them, against QPR & Derby he tricked his way past a defender & got in to dangerous positions in the box.

@Davefevs beat me to it by seconds, with much more detail.

Feel like he’s going to be an unsung hero this season. Been excellent whilst Jay’s been out.

He shouldn't be unsung on here. The type of player all teams need, a solid 7/10 everytime he walks onto the pitch.

I said at the time, this signing reminds me of the Alex Russell signing. He is a good player/pro who is comfortable on the ball & can cover a few positions. He also knows how to look after himself & when to commit a foul. Only slight worry is yellow cards. Has he got 3 now? Could do without a ban for him anytime soon. COYR

Rowe has 1 yellow....the one on Saturday.

Palmer has 3 though.

I think that in the scenario where Jay wasn’t injured and Nagy was, Rowe would be playing CM with Brownhill where I think he’d be even more impressive in his natural position.

I think LJ would have shielded Massengo more had the above happened.

We have great options!

Thought he also got one for being kicked in the nether regions at home against QPR? ( don’t know how ). COYR

Did not see the last game, but thought he was a weak link against QPR and Derby. Glad it sounds like he played well Saturday 👍

In what way JD.  Got exposed v QPR admittedly but Derby was pretty solid.

Another goal for Rowe today. Jay Dasilva’s gotta work hard to get back in the side when fit again.

Dasilva bound to get back in imo. Not even close the levels between the 2. Thought Rowe had his best game I've seen. But will be interesting to see 1st goal back. Was he a bit slow? 

Interesting that once O'Dowda moved the left back, Boro concentrated on our right side. O'Dowda looked comfortable I thought at left back.

Thought , considering he’s a midfield player and played his career at L1 he was excellent today - no nonsense , good sensible decisions and a good pro

I love the way he loves a tackle. Comes sliding in a mile away nicking possession and always up for a battle. Has plenty of heart and a gutsy performer.

Almost put in the perfect ball for Weimann in that lovely move down the left hand side.

Proper warrior is what I was thinking. Not the greatest footballer, but you will get everything he has to offer.

JD a far superior left back. I think Rowe has improved a lot in LB as he has learned his role but really lacks pace.

Unfortunately it means he stands off his man for fear of getting beaten and results in us conceding a lot of crosses in from his side. All first half they were targeting his side as it was so easy to get a cross in and it was no surprise when the ball came in from there for the first goal. 

Fair play to him for standing in manfully but it’s a real shame we’re missing Jay for the next 4-5 months. Also because Dasilva would have linked up with the technical play of Kasey, Nagy and Massengo beautifully. 😢

Rowe is clearly not a left back, and a back 4 doesn’t suit him, but much like Joe Bryan previously, he is a good enough all round player to be able to slot in at left wing back. He is clearly a midfielder who likes to get forward and 2 goals in 6 games, plus getting the penalty award at Hull, is a great return. In the second half, the ball he got from Weimann, then played at speed back towards Weimann in the box, deserved a touch on it and a goal. And when called upon to replace Massengo, he looked fine in central midfield.

As free transfers go, he might not quite be Pukki, but I would suggest that LJ is currently counting his lucky stars that he picked him up for nothing.

I thought he had a right old battle with Marvin Johnson today, and they both gave as good as they got.  Pretty much the same man for man across the pitch.  There were some really good tussles to watch today.

Good footballer and under rated by many when we brought him in but having seen him a few times now he’s a 100% player and gives his all as well as capable of scoring a few goals. Got to say I’ve been really impressed with him so far

He's been fantastic for us. Best signing for money easily. He's actually considered 4th best player in the Championship ratings, for performances after 5 games. Some achievement. Love the way he goes about his game. Will be great competition for DaSilva.

I. Cavaleiro Fulham 6  7.67
O. Ejaria Reading 4     7.67
J. Swift Reading 6 7.65

Really? He did as well as he could. Got a goal..but no more than a 7 for me. Eliasson, Weimann, Afobe, Hunt, quite a few better imo.

Seems to have excellent tactical intelligence on top of his natural fitness, application and affability. He adjusts well when we change shape and although may be limited as a tackler his positional sense as a LB seems solid. 

I saw him in pre-season and had quiet high hopes. He now is showing that he's just the kind of senior player this side needs.

Yep that's probably right isn't it. Who else have we had a free transfer in that period?

Bristol City’s James Milner. Sadly I missed yesterday’s game but I really like the look of him. It’s funny that the most underwhelming signings are often the best ones.

Brownhill and Maenpaa? Even Szmodics once we've seen him.

Weren’t Brownhill and Szmodics both signed for compensation fees? 

I think so. I know Szmodics definitely had a compensation fee.
