Jonny Evans has a relegation release Clause at £3m. Why not get him to play with his brother Corry?

 I think he would end up back in the prem. City were looking at him at Xmas and figures of 30 million bingo thrown about. Robert huth is a free agent. I'd love him to come but again I don't know how it would work wage wise

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

He’s a top half Prem centre half. I swear people are losing it.

 

No wonder people kick off when we sign a Richie Smallwood.

Ano. Even when I saw Robert huth a big part of me was saying that's unrealistic and probably is. The problem is nobody knows if venkys ambition matches Tony's.

Just what we need someone like him but I can see them going with the present centre backs and I think the idea will be nurture Lenihen till  big money comes in for him.

Tammy Abraham now he would be ideal and exactly what’s needed

Have to disagree there.

Abraham is over 6'4..a target man if ever there was one

But he isnt strong enough to be target man.

Linked with City, Spurs and Arsenal. 

Try to be realistic please

Sentiment could be our undoing this Summer. Not wanting to drop players from first XI to bench, we’ll end up replacing the loanees rather than upgrading any starters.

Fingers crossed I’m wrong. A Huth is exactly what we need. Proven pedigree and better than what we have. We need a new striker too, and a right back. And a centre mid. And two wingers.

Apart from that, we are in great shape.

Huth? How old is he?

Right back? We got 2/3 already. 

Agree on striker, 2 wingers and centre midfielder. Need Armstrong back and back up number 10 for Dack

Nope, we’ve only got 1 right back. When he isn’t fit we have to play a midfielder there.

I also have doubts about Nyambe’s ability for the Championship. Bell is probably more suited because of his pace otherwise we’d need a left back as well.

I mentioned this about a week ago on the Facebook page but we should consider signing Jamie Maclaren from hibs if we can. He’s actually on loan from Darmstadt (Germany) and just scored another 3 against Rangers. He played for my Hometown club Brisbane Roar for a couple of seasons and is a real goal poacher. Scored a heap of goals for us. With Dack as the supply line he would score plenty and would feed off Graham as well. He’s at the right age to start hitting his peak. He’s also a former Rovers youth player to boot!

Nyambe, Caddis, And Bennett/Travis can both play there.

I think the only thing for certain, is that the players we do eventually sign will be players that won't have even been thought of on here, and they will all be met with negativity at first.

Oh, and that nobody will be paying money for Corry Evans.

Jonny Evans? Tammy Abraham? Lewis Grabban? Chris Brunt?

Bloody hell. It's like playing football manager on acid. Absolutely no chance.

I don't think we'd get any of the above mentioned players but atm this IS fantasy football as we don't even know who's staying or going so how can we speculate on what we need other than writing our wish lists. Personally I'd never suggest players but it's harmless fun for some. Once the window actually opens well start to be a bit more grounded I think

I've always liked Brunt , very under rated player in my opinion. Having said that even if he were to come, which he won't, where would you play him ? Lately he's being playing more at the back than on the wing and we've already got two left backs.

Plus there's the issue of wages. Even " average " Premier League " players are on mega bucks as are lots of the established players at the next level down.

The sensible way to recruit would be to try and identify some of the better players in this division who are hungry to make the step up, and a couple of experienced championship players who have been around the block a bit and know the league.

Oh, and if that Oldham right back who Mowbray was terrified of back in Feb isn't our first signing then I for one will be extremely disappointed.

Chaddy, you are hardly suggesting that Caddis should play next season are you? 

I would prefer Bennett in midfield as well personally.

This has been our problem for a number of years, counting players who can 'do a job' in a position instead of having specialists.

We have NO good right backs just a few who can play there but rarely with enough consistent form to do so for a season if fit.

Can't see it changing it's been the make do and mend position at Rovers since Kean back stabbed his way in. From Salgado, Chimbonda, Jacobsen to ending up with kids Henley, Kane and an ageing centre half and midfielder filling in there in no time at all.

Disagree with you on us having no good right backs Nyambe has improved a lot this year and I expect him to get better.He is only 20.Would like another right back to come in but after we hopefully find Caddis a new home

Huth is a leader and we need a few more in the championship. Our overall squad needs to remain stable with about 5/6 new additions ( Chapman/ Armstrong May use up 2 of those spaces)

Caddis - not good enough for L1 let alone Championship

Travis - can he play at rb? Never knew that. Mowbray doesn’t think so.

Bennett - midfielder

What was the question again?
