rob lainton training at st georges park today, looked like it was with burton albion.






22 Jan 2014 08:51:35
Burton Albion to bring in two strikers from last season's squad to help with their goalscoring problems. Calvin Zola now Aberdeen and Matt Paterson currently at Aldershot are on Gary Rowett's radar, he desperately needs the extra firepower as although close to the top of the table they are just not scoring enough goals.

Alan Gow's move to Bristol Rovers is still on the cards.

Dartford hope to get Harry Crawford from Barnet back yet again on loan until the end of the season.


28 Jan 2014 20:50:14
will drive him down to u he's been usless up here

Who Zola? He was so good for Burton last season.






11 Oct 2013 02:07:25
Phil Brown was looking at bringing in Wigan Athletic defender Rob Kiernan but due to the current embargo the club are under he is unable to do so meaning the blues only have one fit central defender fit for the trip to Burton and that is Prosser!

Apricot Toast

Notts County are set to make a managerial change by sacking Chris Kiwomya. The County boss hasn't started the season in great form by winning just one in his first nine games this season. It is thought chairman Ray Trew, will approach Burton Albion over their boss Gary Rowett with Trew hoping the deal will be sorted by this time next week.


03 Oct 2013 17:37:23
I would Prefer Nigel cough as manager

06 Oct 2013 20:07:51
The rumour about kiwomya being sacked is 100% true.

Dean Smith the Walsall manager has already been approached with the Walsall chairman's permission on Friday but he has turned it down to stay at Walsall.

The only three now on the shortlist are

Nigel Clough
Justin Edinburgh
Paul Cook

Justin Edinburgh from Newport is favourite to get the nod.

Utter utter nonsense. We've played fantastic, passing footy lately and this is all down to Kiwomya. Don't forget he's done this on a shoe string after losing our best three players for nothing.

Give the man time and stop pretending you have knowledge


07 Oct 2013 17:27:21
Dean smith signed extenstion on his deal so he won't replace any1

Fantastic footie again tonight. Kiwomya next England manager. You heard it here first


28 Oct 2013 21:52:27
Notts are about to appoint Danny Wilson



31 Aug 2013 22:33:21
Burton boss Gary Rowett is interested in bringing in Wolves centre-back Georg Margreitter on a short term loan.

11 Sep 2013 20:34:58
Don't need to bring anyone for centre half got Phil Edwards who can play there and is probably the best centre half we have.

25 Sep 2013 12:29:23
Cansdell-Sherriff of Preston North End to join Burton on Loan



13 Aug 2013 20:36:40
Burton are close to signing former Southend defender/midfielder Michael Spillane on a one year deal.

Spillane is unlikely to be in Garry Rowetts plans. Michael has been given an opportunity to train and put himself in the shop window.

I'm a Chesterfield fan and I would ike to say how well your team played against us. Phil Brown set your team up perfectly, so we couldn't play. However you stopped pressing too early and allowed us to put pressure on you and score. If Phil Brown stops settling for the draw you will get promotion because your group of players are tight and quality.

But most importantly you have a excellent keeper that prevented more goals.

Caolan lavery from swfc on loan for the season

Cheers mate, appreciate the comments



11 Aug 2013 12:27:37
Bury have circulated all FL and Conference clubs the names of players available.

Pratt (loan)

Source; Burton Albions John P

First 4 are believable but the last 2 aren't. harrad is bury's main striker and jackson has just signed and does get used from the subs bench. #bury fan#

Would take Harrad back in a flash as he's a proven goalscorer at this level



06 Aug 2013 14:58:05
Burton are to follow the signing of Adam McGurk with the signing of Anthony O'Connor on a season long loan from Blackburn.



02 Aug 2013 17:53:28
Burton Albion sign Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford on a season long loan.

Brewers boss Gary Rowett is looking to conclude his summer business with bringing Blackburn defender Anthony O'Connor back on loan and also Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry on a youth loan.

02 Aug 2013 20:50:13
West brom have signed Diego Lugano on a two year contract


05 Aug 2013 09:44:37
Burton have signed adam mcgurk on a 2 year deal from tranmere


Would have thought that is a very good signing for Burton.

Good signing



31 Jul 2013 11:26:28
Burton Albion are close to agreeing a one year loan deal for Man United keeper Sam Johnstone.

It's Jordan Pickford - Sunderland on season long loan.

It's Jordan Pickford - Sunderland on season long loan.



31 Jul 2013 11:17:04
Bury set to sign Brian Jensen once current Goalkeeper Trevor Carson completes his move to Burton Albion

Not signing carson we are signing a prem keeper on loan

Carson is not going to Burton.
Burton were offered him but the club has said they're not interested.

Burton Albion are not interested in Trevor Carson full stop.

If Burton Albion turned down Brian Jensen after a trial why would they be interested in Carson? Its a no brainer!



30 Jul 2013 10:41:07
Burton are looking to the loan market to strengthen their squad for the forthcoming season.
Expect Hull keeper Mark Oxley to arrive on a season long loan tomorrow.
Gary Rowett also interested in bringing in Derby defender Tom Naylor on loan and free agent Gary McSheffrey.

Mark oxley joined oldham beginning of july on loan

Oxley has already gone to Oldham, deal was done weeks ago


Apologies, I heard premier league goalkeeper and was jumping to conclusions.
it's actually Sam Johnstone from Man Utd.

Benjamin Siegrist Aston Villa reserve keeper.

What about Shay Given?

Given has joined another team I think

Given is joining Donny Rovers on loan for a season along with Steven Ireland - Hull fan

He has not gone on loan anywhere still at Villa. So might have a chance

How about trying Luke Daniels - West Brom.



30 Jul 2013 09:36:43
burton set to sign adam legzdinz on oan from derby and loan a unamed winger

Burton are signing a keeper from the Premiership not the Championship in the next few days.



25 Jul 2013 18:23:34
john brayford bid accepted from cardiff, fee thought to be in the region of 2mil, formalities concluded on friday
burton mail

25 Jul 2013 22:16:07
is it true Brentford goalkeeper simon moore, is about to sign for Cardiff on Friday, hope not will be a big loss, reminds me of joe hart

The rumour of Simon Moore seems to be strong online. As a Cardiff fan, we said Joe Lewis was a prospect and he hasn't featured, so why go for another 'prospect'?

So what are you saying. Should we buy a rubbish keeper rather than a player who has obvious talent!

Burton been offered to sign bury goalkeeper Trevor Carson, this isn't a rumour but a fact.

Does that mean Bury have offered him to Burton or that Burton have placed a bid?

Bury letting him move, so was offered to burton, and guest what" the goalkeeper coach" at burton said he didn't fancy him, is he on the same planet as us, northern Ireland international, and he is coming off with that. We don't even have a goalkeeper for start of season.

If Kevin Poole doesn't think Carson is good enough. He's not good enough.

I trust Kevin Poole's judgement 100%

Carson was at chesterfield, they let him go kev poole is spot on.

burton to sign goalkeeper chris dunn and a unamed winger this week

He is only on trial!

Need to see more of Chris Dunn to form any opinion. A really good winger would be a bonus. These are in very short supply.

Can't see why Burton would want to sign Dunn.

Did alright when he came on against derby. and saved a penalty. could be worth a punt.

Having seen Dunn tonight I hope we don't sign him!

Dunn could be worth a punt, yes I agree, 1 old Irish punt is about his value! Nowhere near good enough for Burton.



19 Jul 2013 14:31:26
Gary Rowett is waiting to hear back from former Coventry winger Gary McSheffrey, to see if he wants to play for Burton this season.

Seriously? Would be an amazing signing.

Looks like cov will be playing at northampton this season and cov are looking at loaning a couple of young players from man united to be aged 17-18 yrs old and loaning a player from yeovil a young goalkeeper aged 18 hopefully we get good results this season

Would be a quality signing for you is a fantastic play maker and can still score a few goals but getting on a bit

A fit McSheffrey woul be a great addition and not too old at thirty.

Many, many Cov fans are sad to see him go. Yes, he's reaching the twilight of his career but capable of moments of sheer brilliance (and a few bloopers). Would be a leader for Burton

Very slow player, can't take on a player, rarely gets shots away, can't pass or cross, completely different player to what he used to be like, you can have him.

McSheffrey has been garbage since he came back. A lot of supporters never forgave him for chosing Birmingham over other suitors, so good riddance.



19 Jul 2013 13:56:15
Wigan goalkeeper Lee Nicholls to join Burton Albion on a season long loan.



19 Jul 2013 11:42:56
Deon Burton's release from Oxford fuelling speculation he could be joining Colchester

Gillingham I think.

I'm sure he was at Gillingham?


Released from gillingham, training with Scunthorpe, so close

Colchester don't need any more strikers

Signing for Scunthorpe United on non-contract terms

He has signed for Scunthorpe!



17 Jul 2013 20:22:05
deon burton will sign for bury fc for 12 months
sometime next week

Looked this guy up on wiki he seems at gillingham he made 40 apperances and scored 12 goals he seems ok

On trial at Scunthorpe earlier in the week. Scored and subsequently offered a contract.

22 Jul 2013 17:25:59
unlucky bury look elsewhere burton as signed a years contract with the iron today and hi ed you ok mate scunny champions from pc of ashby

DB is an old man in football terms at 36 his better years are behind him.

Last season he only managed 12 goals in a promotion winning side, so what is he likely to do in a relegation threatened team.?

Went scunny


Hes gone to scunny mate lol



17 Jul 2013 11:16:47
Rory Delap and Brian Jenson to sign for burton

Delap is signing for Portsmouth. Jenson could be a good call though.

Rory Delap would be a good signing, no sure about the beast though.
Adam Legzdins with Mason Bennett pehaps on loan would be excellent signings.

Legzdins would be returning to his old club but I suspect Brian Jensen will be signed as keeper and as for Mason Bennett there is absolutely no chance!

Hes not wants to be close to his family in derby and signing to be announced tomorrow so will probs be him

Delap is not signing for portsmouth cause he's signed a one year deal with the brewers

Delap signed for the Brewers this morning.

Delap signed 1yr contract jenson and rowe turner not taken on

Stunning signing, welcome Rory you beauty!!!



16 Jul 2013 23:57:23
Leaving Luton Town are Scott Rendell and Lathaniel Rowe-Turner. They've been on trial at Torquay and Burton Albion respectively and are expected to sign in the coming days. Also, Stuart Fleetwood is having a trial at Alfreton, although he's holding out for a love to a L2 side or a higher placed conference team

Rendells a great signing for Torquay and get him playing ball and you will have one hell of a striker there

Rendell I don't believe is good enough, Conference player. Rowe-Turner not being taken on by Burton.

Oh, and Fleetwood has signed a year's contract for Eastleigh!

Couldn't disagree any more with you over Rendell he has a decent record in front of goal when given a chance and we all saw what the lad did against Norwich. Showing that he can play at a higher level than conference. Although he's not the quickest of players his techincal ability is decent



16 Jul 2013 13:29:54
Burton Albion 'super sub' striker Matt Paterson to sign for Falkirk by the weekend.

Doubt he will go north of the border. Oxford, Exeter or Torquay maybe - lives on the south coast! Will be missed at Burton.

Not by the manager he won't be

Didn't he trial at Oxford last year and they didn't sign him?



13 Jul 2013 08:50:14
Burton have signed Rene Howe on a 2 year contract
Rory Delap and Adam Mcgurk to sign next week

So we could end up with Howe and Symes up front with MacDonald and McGurk on the wings.
Now that's a front line that could rip up L2.

What about Billy Kee

Excellent signing, re-sign Pato and I will be happy with Kee and Howe up front and Pato off the bench. Symes couldn't hit a barn door and Knowles is inexperienced. UTBs

Symes is garbage so happy Orient let him go. Kee and Howe could rip it up though.

Kee and Howe has to be first choice. Knowles looked better than Symes yesterday at Alfreton friendly.

Cannot understand signing Symes and no sign of Paterson re-signing? Who would you rather coming off the bench to bag the winner Symes or Pato, no competition.

Get over it man, Paterson has gone and Symes will do well for Burton, your consistent whinging is giving the clubs supporters a bad name. Albion will do well this season!

Symes do well for Burton LOL. Burton fans arguing over Symes LOL.

How do we know that Paterson didn't reject us everyone's thinking we don't want him

We see when season starts who is right

We (burton) offered him a deal with a slight increase. With pato being the age he is any English team would have to pay for him. Pato believed he'd been stitched up and is leaving to play in Scotland where the Bosman ruling doesn't come into effect. No great loss in my eyes.

Burton have NOT offered him a deal. He now needs to find another club. No great loss to lose a striker who scored 7 goals in 15 starts, winning goals against Torquay, Plymouth and Rochdale and the goal that not only secured us into the play offs but took us to the highest league position in the clubs history, yeah, no great loss. Some supporters just leave me amazed.

Surely that says it all, Burton haven't offered him anything so they don't want him. It's got nothing to do with fans not wanting him, the management don't want him, so move on.

Stunned by some of the no brains who support Burton Albion. Pato = fully commited, excellent young striker with bags of goals in him, gutted he's leaving us.

They did they offered a 1 year check back through the burton mail

Even if Paterson wasn't offered a new deal doesn't that say a lot about what Rowett thought about the player?

Well you will have to stay gutted! We have siged a better striker who is proven in league 2 namely Rene Howe. Its getting a bit tiresome reading your ramblings, if your not happy have a word with Gary Rowett, he's the manager and frankly I trust his judgement better than yours.
I support Burton Albion and I sure have got brains! You do yourself a disservice posting comments lke that.
You will be telling me next Rory Delap is a waste of money!

Rob C you troll that has got to be you! The only Burton Albion supporter on the planet who doesn't rate Paterson, lol. Get out and get a life Rob :)

Rory Delap is joining Pompey

Apparently Gary rowett doesn't rate him either

Rob you need to stop it, you are getting very boring. Paterson has not been signed on so that GR can finance a couple of 'bigger name' players, that's it, it's nothing to do with if he rates him or not, it's all to do with spondoolies. Now you really do need to get out more Mr Cudworth!

I'm not Rob C, and I never said I didn't rate Paterson, I do actually, but something has gone wrong and we are never likely to know what. He previously had some kind of fall out at Southend prior to coming to us. Its time to move on with the players we have signed. I do have a life and am not a troll and have better things to do than worry about Paterson who wa only mainly used as a sub anyway!



12 Jul 2013 12:32:34
Notts County frontman Enoch Showunmi set to sign for Burton Albion making way for Lee Barnard of Southampton.

Chris Kiwomya feels Lee Barnard will bring out the best of the new forward Danny Haynes.

Barnard won't sign and Burton don't want Showunmi

I highly doubt we will sign barnard

Showunmi does not have a great goalscoring record and at the wrong age for Burton

Rene Howe has signed for the brewers

The striker is Rene Howe who has signed for Burton Albion. Very good signing for them!



12 Jul 2013 09:50:54
Deon Burton leaving gillingham after not being offered new deal, there are several clubs following, including Oxford, Wimbledon.

No thanks woldnt want him at he dons

Insane comment still has a lot to offer, would of been quite happy to keep him at Gills

He hasn't been given a squad number and Gills have signed new strikers. He is gone.

Oxford are not after him at all

On trial at Scunthorpe



12 Jul 2013 08:38:13
Burton to sign a striker or 2 in the coming days as well as Rory Delap



11 Jul 2013 12:53:53
Burton Albion are in talks with striker Liam Dickinson following his release from Southend United.

He was released years ago so you mean after a year doing nothing

Release from end of 2011/12 season

Blimey, more clubs than Jack Nicklaus

Was released over a year ago

Dickinson was release two seasons ago.

Dickinson is at port vale

He's missing from Vale's trip to Ireland (with a poor excuse concerning passport problems) so its likely that he won't be staying on at Vale.

He has been training with the Vale whilst he recovers from an ankle op. looks like someone who has not played for twelve months

Thats because he HASN'T played for 12 months. we released him at the end of the 2011/12 season.

RM Shaks!

Dickinson was a force for Southend 2 seasons ago and it was only losing him with a broken limb in a vital game with Crawley that lost us promotion as he then missed both play off games vs Crewe, when we lost with half a team of crocks. If he has recovered from injury he would be a great catch for any League 1 or 2 teams. SUFC wish him all the best!



08 Jul 2013 21:38:07
Burton are set to include a number of trialists in their squad to play Ilkeston FC tomorrow. These include ex-Rangers striker Kane Hemmings and former Stoke midfielder Rory Delap.

Hemming is trialling with Southend and he's not good enough.

Anyone know what's happening with matt Patterson thought he had been offered a 1year deal

Doesn't look like Paterson will be with the Brewers this coming season.

Think Paterson is still negotiating his contract with Burton - he's going nowhere, was a massive influence on our fantastic season last year. GR will sign him and one other striker in the next week or two.

Paterson didn't accept the offer, and wasn't in the squad for the friendly last night. So I can only assume that he's looking for another club.

Rumour is the club have still not offered Pato a contract.

No contract has been put on the table yet. Unbelievable to leave him hanging out there after his fantastic performances for the club last season.

I cannot believe what I am reading here. Are you seriously saying that we have not offered one of our brilliant goalscorers from last season a new contract? I cannot believe that, Pato was outstanding and promised a new deal.

Great young player, great goals will score us 15+ this season when he signs.

Cannot believe Gary Rowett would not re-sign Pato after his acheivements last season, got to be a contract negotiation blip!

He wll have been offered as we would be due compensation if he does leave

He has been offered nothing, so we are entitled to nothing.

Can we have him at Torquay please? His goal was unbelievable and he ran us ragged - will have a word with Mr Knill if you haven't snapped him up. Yellows.

How do you know we have not offered him anything last time I saw anything about him anywhere we offered him something

Seems like a Paterson love fest on here, if he was as good as you are all saying he would have been signed by now. As it is, after Symes signed Rowlett is looking elsewhere.

He can't sign if he's not been offered anything.

Paterson was a breath of fresh air at Albion last season. Scored some really important goals, so the fans love him. Rowett has more money to spend this season so Paterson will only be offered a contract if he cannot convince a 'big named' striker to join. Pretty s***ty for the lad actually.

Again, if he was as good as you lot seem to think he would have been offered a deal by now and certainly before Symes got one. As it is Rowett isn't having him and he's the bloke to impress.

Its all about money. And Pato is good enough, GR won't give him 40 starts, real shame as he was excellent.



08 Jul 2013 19:58:48
Rory delap training with the brewers.

He played last night

Looked old, but composed! Would be a good addition to the squad, but not at any price!

Reminiscent of a Dave Mackay type player (even if only against Ilkeston) looked calm on the ball and can pass it out from the back.
