We're signing Andy Cook on loan from Mansfield apparently. Bit of a donkey stags fans?
Fucking hell, Cook and Rowe up front would be the fattest L2 pairing ever.

We've confirmed, for I think the fourth time this month, that Kayode will be staying for the remainder of the season.

Rotherham have been making the right noises about this since the window opened and we have reported a few times that Paul Warne is keen for him to stay out on loan. There is of course no such thing as a guarantee that a player won't be recalled during the transfer window, only the word of his parent club, which is why we keep treating everything Paul Warne says as news, but I highly doubt he is going anywhere.

From what has been reported in our local papers, it was never in Paul Warne's thoughts to bring Kayode back,

He is impressed with his progress at Carlisle and the player has said he is happy there.

He wouldn't get a game here because we only play one up front except when chasing a game late on.
He would have to get past Smith, Ladapo and Hirst to get time on the pitch.

If Hirst had been sent back or recalled, that might have changed things because we let Vassell go to Fleetwood, but it benefits all parties to let him continue to improve at Carlisle.

Let;s hope he comes back with a promotion on his CV.

Cook does not suit Clough style at all, but he’s a good L2 player capable of getting a goal out of nothing. Likely our highest paid player too.

Get the right pairing with him and he’s definitely a potential 20 goal man.

Andy Cook could be a terrific signing for Bradford providing they partner him with somebody with a bit of pace. Don’t be put off by his appearance or demeanour. Can score goals from anywhere in or around the box. His appearances to goals ratio speaks for itself.
Very similar to ex Bradford striker Bobby Campbell if anybody remembers him.

We've been playing one upfront in a 4-2-3-1 since the managerial change and have a trio of technical players rather than flying wingers behind that striker. We've brought in some pace as well but they haven't broke into the team as of yet. Will be interesting to see how he fits in. Certainly seems like good cover for Novak who looks like he'll be injured long term again.

He’s been playing out wide on the right for us mostly.

Cook to Bradford is confirmed.

I think he’ll do well, wish him well anyway.

He is scored 19 for us in a relegated league one side could of been more had he not downed tools when Keates was sacked he was gone after that.

As mentioned the Cook signing suggests Novak’s injury is a long term one given he and Rowe would be starters, solid enough, experienced, a no risk loan, can’t complain.

are you just trying to sign ex-Barrow strikers (Rowe and Cook) - just because you have us this weekend and you know players tend to score against their former clubs?

Very pleased with this January window:

OUT:

Ben Richards-Everton (Barnet)
Kurtis Guthrie (Port Vale)
Jackson Longridge (Livingston)
Austin Samuels (Wolves)

IN:
Danny Rowe (undisclosed - Oldham)
Niall Canavan (undisclosed - Plymouth)
Matty Foulds (Como 1907)
Jordan Stevens (Leeds)
Will Huffer (BPA)
Rumarn Burrell (Middlesbrough)
Andy Cook - Mansfield

Why on earth McCall didn’t fully utilise the playing budget in the summer is anyone’s guess.

Another winger expected to come in.

Have you released Mottley Henry?

Are these players with one eye for next season......or a quick fix for the rest of this season?

If you stick with the one up front, Cook needs to be that guy. Just a natural goalscorer and not much else. Great player though.

Rowe was playing a central midfield role towards the end of his time at Fylde, so can see him doing something similar (he has zero pace to play up front with Cook). Can stick him anywhere and he'll try and hit 30-yarders.

Strange dynamic pairing one of our most popular former strikers with arguably the most despised.

We had Andy Cook on loan from January last season and unfortunately it didn't prove the homecoming Rovers fans had all been hoping for; didn't find the net in the time he was with us and ended up on the bench. I don't know what went wrong, on his day and at L2 level, you'd think if he was deployed right the goals should follow.

The players who have signed a minimum 18 month contract, of course have been signed for next season. We have a few players out of contract in the summer who will likely leave club, allowing for us to recruit players with actual value for money.

Billy Clarke, Lee Novak, Anthony O’Connor, Harry Pritchard, Zeli Ismael, Clayton Donaldson, Sam Hornby, Connor Wood, Dylan Mottley-Henry and Tyler French are all out of contract. It’s going to give us an opportunity to start afresh, whilst having the spine of the team currently under contract.

No word of a lie, Rowe is two games into his Bradford City career and he’s tried at least 12 powerbastard shots from 20-35 yards out. He’s scored, hit the bar and pinged one from 35 yards last night which would’ve gone in, had it not have been for a great save.

He’s a fucking tractor. Well liked by fans already.

Ha, that's all Danny Rowe does but he's amazingly good at it.

Running, hold up, heading, passing, nah...

A very weird player from when I saw him play for Kirkham.

Don’t think Andy Cook even got a minute of first team football for us.
