How many players out of our starting XI have successfully?

Neither Marcus Maddison or Jack Marriott have played in the Championship. Would you turn them away?

Simple fact of the matter is Venky's have turned Blackburn Rovers into beggars and we certainly cannot be choosers as long as they continue.

Any chance we have of success comes through risk. I'd rather have talented League One players who could surprise us all than be lacking in numbers. Something I fear we could be in the not to distant future.

 

Its a bizarre and inconsistent theory. Dack hasnt played any Championship football, hes our best player. Jason Lowe has loads, same with Hope Akpan, both rubbish. Ashley Fletcher has very little, of which all is negative, yet he wants to sign him. Armstrong hasnt been that successful in the past in the Championship, yet he wants to sign him. Chapman, has he played in the Championship? If he has, very little experience, yet he wants him. Maddison, Edwards, Adelakun? No he doesnt want them as they dont have the elusive Championship experience.

If a player has been successful in this league, then yes, its a positive. But players who have played in this league and been below the quality needed, are not better than those that have yet to play but have been very successful in other leagues, just by saying "Championship experience."

Jesus Christ, give the girl a break. Who knows what she's like? Having her character assassinated and reasons for being with her fella by a bunch of internet nobodies because of how she looks, pretty

There should be no excuses and no cliches imo. The window so far has been...underwhelming.  Do I think we’d go down with this squad? No? Is it better than the one which went down? Yes, I believe

Yeah you misrepresented opinion knowingly. Uncalled for in my book. I've tried to keep a polite profile here, doesn't seem to work so well so maybe I've been too soft.

Totally agree we are weaker than Div 1 and this transfer window hasn't gone to plan. Mowbray asked to be judged at the end of the window and I will.  He says he is confident the deals wil be done by then, if they're not the window has been a major fail. 

I did no such thing nor would I but let's not bore everyone. We will all judge the manager when the window closes but it doesn't stop people from saying things don't appear to be going to schedule(to put it mildly).

You only have to look at delli ali at spurs..played league 1 and has gone on to become one of spurs top players (most of the time)

To cheer you all up, have a look at some of the other club’s signings. I reckon Sheffield Wednesday, Swansea, Preston, Ipswich and QPR have all had transfer period worse than us....

https://www.transfermarkt.com/championship/transfers/wettbewerb/GB2 

 

Yes but they all have proved they can stay in this division (apart from Swansea who are ex-Premier League).

We have it all to do.

We will see.

You mention Hugill but they sold him in Jan, hes not the best of players and they had Maguire who looks a far better and more prolific striker and pushed them higher in the table. They are another example to us that even with little money, quality is out there.

And who has said that they dont trust Mowbray? No one has. Any distrust is understandably at the feet of our terrible owners. If we dont spend anything/a competitive amount the brunt of the blame will end up at their door. That said, there have been cheap deals and loan deals that have already taken place to show you can get decent players on a budget but thats a conversation for another day.

As pointed out previously, you are getting as impatient and panicky as anyone based on your pestering of journalists and supposed people who claim they know transfer news.

They lost their best striker. Hugill had 10 goals in half a season whilst Maguire got that over a season. so hardly more prolific is ? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/teams/preston-north-end/top-scorers

so if people trust Mowbray and trust him to bring in the right players at the right fees. 

on my being impatient and panicky? really mate you have no idea what you are talking about. its takes about 20 seconds to send a tweet. hardly panicky is it? I'm very chill out and relax person. Ive been away this week enjoying the week, weather and enjoying family. Back to work next week on Nights but I will be chill out and not being worrying about transfers.

It wasn't a poor Sheffield Wednesday squad. They had a bad run with injuries and massively underachieved after 2 play-off campaigns before last year.

We'll see on Preston. They probably won't hit the same heights but they're starting from a healthier position than we are.

 

Injuries happened during a football season. 

Lets see how well they do Preston this season. even on BBC Radio Lancashire you have people wanting Neil out last season god knows what they want if they start badly

Trust Mowbray enough to say that IF the story is true then the reason maybe the conditionality of the money. 1 signing for 8 mill and/or on silly wages would undo a lot of hard work (and not just by Mowbray).

The team is good enough to stay Up though options and backup are questionable. Next step is to build a solid championship squad and then add the "luxury" buys to push us into top 6 without being liquidated...

It's not.  

I like mowbray but the lack of activity is alarming for me. Conway I don't understand, surely a younger quicker player could have his wages.  If we lose either CM or DL we've got nothing to cover.  Graham will revert back to looking lathargic......we need an injection of 4/5 starters

Hell.
I think most people on here would accept John Marquis + Jack Marriott as our striker signings and Marcus Maddison + Graham Carey as our midfield/winger signings.
All four of them have very little if any Championship experience.

The argument of ruling people out because they haven't played much in the Championship is apparently a luxury we cannot afford.

Gwion Edwards is a talented winger, something we definitely need and at worst would be a decent option to complement Conway.

Ellis Harrison is a very talented forward who would sit ahead of Samuel for me. Would have been a decent second striker out of the two strikers we need to sign.

Yeah, have to agree there. I'm actually fairly jealous of those two Ipswich signings. Think they'd both be a good fit for us.

Must disagree here. 4/5 starters - who is for the chop?

My post refers only to staying up and the team (not squad). I agree entirely that options are thin and the squad needs more quality but first 11 should be good enough for survival.

Agreed re the quality of players needed.

I think we should be looking to replace the wingers and DG with better players from the start.

But I agree that we need another couple of starters for the following reasons. 

CB - in case we play 3 at the back.

ST - to create competition. I don’t think you can have too many goal scorers in your squad

There is absolutely nothing new in that article, not even any direct quotes. Its just a rehash of what we are told week by week. Our lack of activity even has the LT scraping the barrel in order to fill column inches.

Ummm...there is one thing worryingly different about that article lads...it's now saying at least THREE signing by the end of both windows. Sure they've always said 4 was the number until now. Now it only says up to 4.

We definitely need at least 4.

It says looking at bringing back Armstrong and Chapman but tony would rather have championship experience of which armstrong  has and then follows that with looking at a man city youngster

Depends who the Man City youngster is? If it is Jack Harrison has played at Championship level last season for Boro

Think everyone can see that to be fair.  Someone summed it up perfectly.  Two quick wide players.  A physical striker.  A striker with pace and a big dominating CB (with view to replacing Mulgrew).  If we can sign at least one winger, striker and CB permanently, then topping up with quality loans would be great.

Would also suggest a physical CM wouldn't go amiss although Travis is showing promise there.

The LT obviously know they are wringing every bit of copy out of not a lot, as they've stopped bothering with Mowbray's quotes after about 50 airings this summer.

I see it has Rich Sharpe has written it to ensure fans signing will be made. Probably at Mowbray request

Stop worrying and trust Mowbray to get signings in. 

Ive asked Rich Sharpe your point about its gone from at least 4 to at least 3?

His response is what he been told 3 to 4 signings in

Trust Mowbray, trust Mowbray - I dont think anyone does NOT trust Mowbray - Its those above him that people do not trust. So please stop putting peoples understandable nerves and worries down to them not trusting Mowbray!

I think you can count Davenport as a defensive/physical CM as well. Would really like to see a proper box-to-box midfielder that will make the deep runs into the box and finish off attacks. Seems like rare breed these days, only one I can think of in our space is Jon Nolan of Shrewsbury.  

But creativity at the front line is/should be the priority.

Not sure I'd class 3 substitute appearances as experience though.
