I can’t comment on his time at Hamburg only rangers and he didn’t look up to much. Can’t even get in our Scotland team which is horrific for central defenders. I really think we should be looking elsewhere for central defence than Scotland . It’s our weakest area 

Not even Rhodes who was banging goals in for fun couldnt even get into the Scotland. I see the comment as relatively void.

I think the inference is that Mulgrew gets in ahead of him.

Has he tho it's up to 7m with targets met if he reaches the targets he will have been worth 7m no? 

Didn't the accounts show around 5/6 million paid down for fees last summer ? Presumably a big lump down up front on AA & BB so if another lump follows this summer which it probably will that's another big bit of wedge again presumably out of this seasons budget as that's how they usually do it at Rovers with this lot I think.

Hence why we will be financially hamstrung by that transfer for a while yet and maybe they got rid of the add ons by whacking more down upfront, common practise I believe to get rushed deals through which that one was.

What we've seen since is two wages out in Downing & Conway and one in ( probably costing the other two wages ) in Downing unless i'm missing something. So no actual extra on the wage bill from last time as of yet.

I think Strachan didn't rate Rhodes as a lone striker just in the same way some Rovers fans, me for one, didn't.  When your central midfield is poor you can't play two up front which was the ideal situation for Rhodes.

David bates can't even get in the Hamburg team and they are a  second tier team in Germany. He looks gash for Scotland too

Transfermarkt shows he wasn't involved in 9 Bundesliga 2 games last season. That includes suspension, and looking at his Twitter - an injury, so doesn't look too bad on paper.

If you think we'll be signing any of the good players from Bundesliga 1 then I've got news for you though!

Scotland, couldn't comment.

My understanding is a very substantial non target fee with add ons - supposedly Forest couldn't believe their luck.  

 

 

Don’t you just love reading the same assumptions day in, day out, for nearly a year.

There is no evidence whatsoever that it only reaches 7 million with adds ons. 

The accounts show a 5 million down payment, with it in all likelihood reaching 7 in future instalments - as that is how nearly all transfer fees are paid.

There's no assumption he has to be paid for however it's done and that's a fact as are the accounts and Mowbray himself confirming the fee.

We've loved your goal post moving assumptions on it though for nearly a year now trying to make out he's only cost a few quid so far and he's earning peanuts comparably speaking.

As usual real evidence points to the contrary but I suppose we can never rule out the late window Venky rush of blood that might agree to underwrite some more big commitment signings, loan or otherwise.

We haven't had any update recently on Ben Gladwin. No mention of how his contract discussions have progressed or if he's still going to be here next week.

I'm accepting that the team kicking off v Charlton is going to be more or less the same as the one that finished last season. I think Downing will start on the bench, we'll have another CB trying to force his way in ahead of Lenihan and Mulgrew, and possibly another CF to make up the numbers (likely to be a loan) and then that will be that.

Think Mowbray is going to do his usual routine of taking the younger lads away to Austria to see if any of those can step up, then wait and see who is available later on and if any deals can be done. If we spend close to the £10 million of last summer I'll be amazed.

Doubt there's any serious interest in any of ours at this early stage.

Gladwin contract extended till Xmas, currently injured, again.

Maybe not majority opinion but I'd much rather keep Smallwood in the squad and try to get someone to give us a few quid for Evans.

The fact we might be able to get a few quid for Evans but clearly won't for Smallwood should mean we keep him before Richie.

Goalkeeping situation unresolved. David Raya op has not been confirmed.

If not, with post op rehabilitation can understand Leutwiler situation.

Raya delayed the op so he didn’t lose his place this season and it’s highly likely Frank Fielding will be signing too

I just get the impression that if we wanted Fielding that he would have signed by now, he was released from Bristol very quickly after the season ended.

Rodwell looking like a potential last minute re-signing unless he gets a better offer after he didn’t turn up for the start of pre-season and not being included in the Austria trip...

https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/rovers/news/17728388.latest-on-rovers-contract-talks-with-jack-rodwell/

No great loss. Not good enough at CB and not got the body (or mental strength) to play CM week in week out anymore.

Not what he’s been saying so I’ve heard, could be wrong but that’s what’s been said

I've heard from people he was at a wedding with recently that he could be coming back. We should be looking to do better.
