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/

Not showing up for pre-season and having his holiday then instead? Awful attitude towards fitness and preparation, whether he is going to be here or elsewhere. That settles it for me, I now hope he doesn't sign.

I would withdraw our offer he obviously only wants to be here as a last resort. The worrying thing in that article is that Mowbray talked about his versatility, its almost like he didn't see some of his performances at centre back last season.

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.

Over 300 games in the football league, mostly at the level we're at now.

Played regularly for teams that that have finished above us in most of the past 7 seasons.

A Blackburn lad and Rovers fan to boot, we could certainly do worse.

Who he supports or where he comes from is surely an irrelevance. Jason Lowe came through the academy but we couldnt want him any further from the club. The question should be does he have the quality to improve us and aid our supposed push for a top 6 place. I would say certainly not.

Of course it doesn't really matter, I just don't think it hurts, Plus Jason Lowe isn't a Rovers fan anyway...

For me, Fielding has plenty of experience at this level and is a decent keeper. Much better competition for Raya than the Canadian, and also fits in perfectly with Mowbrays philosophy of not bringing in anyone who is better than what we have.

Maybe it will happen after all.

Rich Sharpe just tweeted that Rodwell wasn’t expected at the start of pre season yesterday. I don’t mind whether he stays or goes, I won’t mind if he leaves and if he stays then fair enough. He didn’t show enough consistency for me, looked a class above some games and invisible in others.

Sounds like we've dished out a contract of some description to Ben Gladwin who hasn't played for 18 months and wont be for the next 6 months and even then he isn't good enough for the Championship.

Don't think Mowbray will have any qualms handing Rodwell another deal even if he's not fully fit if he can fill two slots in the squad and doesn't cost much.

Easier than finding an alternative.

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 will still be on the books this time next year I bet and we'll hang around waiting for Rodwell and either chuck him an improved deal he's probably angling for or leave it too late and he'll be off leaving a hole in the squad with the excuse no time to fill it.

Is there a more relaxed manager in this div ?  Next news we'll find out he's signed a 5 year extension. I'd love to know what they were really planning on that Pune trip, my guess, same budget, same costs and invest what little headroom there might be left after what is already committed then grow the team another season.  Finish a few places higher then get ready to cash in !

So there'll be no promotion or play offs pressure but at least the pay off days seem gone.

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.

?

We put down 5m up front. JHC. 

whilst I have my sympathy for gladwin and his injury situation, it is par for the course for a lot in the UK to get bugger all when sick from work. I am beginning to think Mowbray has a soft centre, as I'd have cut him loose.

Gladwin came here from QPR and joined them at a time when they were throwing money around. Safe to say he wont have taken much of a cut when penning his 2 year deal with us. If, and it's a big if, he's only been on 5k a week, that's half a million over his contract. About 1700 adult season tickets.

Perhaps that is enough reason to be baffled/concerned by the talk of handing him a 6 month extension to enable him to get fit. If he goes down to 2k a week and signs on until January that's still nearly 60k committed on someone unable to play.

Amazing given all the talk about Ffp, balancing the books etc.

That's where I was on it, until seeing he decided to have his holiday at the start of pre-season. There's been plenty of other time to get that in. Highly unprofessional and suggests he isn't fully committed to getting in shape, for us or for anyone else. Especially worrying with such an injury prone player. I don't care if the club already knew, and frankly they shouldn't have allowed it whilst he is under contract. We're being a soft touch again.

You do know Raya is still going to our number 1 right. Fielding is back up 

As i said, no improvement on our current shite keeper. Not sure what your point is.

Mowbray will have told him "listen paddy, best buddy, top man, warrior, i want you at this club, ive already got two great centre backs in williams and mulgrew, so will play you when they are injured, when you do play ive got a lad called richie protecting the back four pal"

No surprise that a player would be put off by Mowbray's incoherent wittering.

He probably lost the will to live during the talks.

No surprises here, let's face the facts, Preston have a very capable and ambitious young manager, who is desperate to

succeed in getting them into the Premier League, or at least give it his best shot.

We have Tony Mowbray, who gives me the impression that we'll be ok as long as we improve slightly on last season.

The German lad probably fell asleep half way through their conversation.
