I think Nyambe will go for certain and I wouldnt be surprised if Dack does go aswell.

Why would he leave WBA as their number 2 to come here as a number 2?!

With this pandemic some players will be happy just to have contract

Although Mulgrew needs to focus on giving up his contract?!

A good manager would have a plan for if the departures happen. Not use them as an excuse.

Is this why we have move 4-3-3 cos Dack will leave in summer?.

We are in the summer, from what I have seen recently we have not got a plan or a working formation.

This summer transfer window will be manic, There will be a lot of players specially youngsters who will be looking for a contract/playing time, cuts will be made and prem clubs will have to subsidise majority of wages, squads will be trimmed so if there is any sort of budget bargains could become available, The pandemic will have a massive impact on most clubs but feel a big fee sale could potentially get us a few good deals coming in

It’s a shame Mowbray waxed £12 Million on two poor strikers. If he hadn’t, we might still have some money for squad improvements....

It's been a tough decade as a football club, we're used to it.

And the potential corona hole for next season.

I kinda suspect that that one will dictate the FUP relaxation more in a way. They don't know how long the problems will run on for and this makes it difficult for clubs to set their budgets accordingly for staying out of FUP. Otherwise the sensible thing to do would just be to take the largest estimated loss by a club due to covid, add a little bit, and add that to what every club can lose before the penalties hit. And I'd expect it to have been done by now, so clubs know the rules and can go about their business. The fact the issues could be ongoing means it makes more sense to kick the whole thing down the road until the picture is clearer.

Agree and i hope the FUP gets brought into line otherwise it pushes more clubs towards the edge.

My main point though was it all still has to be covered so we are relying on them for extra money or it comes out of next seasons and maybe beyond to square off extra debt taken.  Personally i'd expect a Tom Cairney,  David Raya type late unexpected 3 mill pound sale in the event of no big out going transfer that would cover the lot.

And i suspect Nyambe will be the sacrifice if so.

Ideal for a team that needs goalkeepers and defenders.

Don’t give Mowbray any more money he will just waste it. Give him a p45 and let’s get the Chris Hughton Gary Rowett show on the road with Johnno as N2.

Or with whoever they actually want as their number 2.

Bloke is 32 as well, just what we need to replace Danny Graham with....

Our transfer policy is and always will be weird. I don’t think this Terrode will come, but what I do know is we will have someone completely out of the blue and in a position we don’t really need. 
 

So expect a central midfielder to come in at least.

Wasn't we close to Martinez from Arsenal? Maybe we will revisit some of our targets from previous windows. I guess Wes Foderingham is on the shortlist.

Robin Bormuth is now a free agent.

Toni Borevkovic is still at Rio Ave.

Weren't we linked to a centreback from Hannover as well?

If only we were one of those clubs with rich owners. ?

It seems obvious that Nyambe this summer will echo Raya last summer.

Made to feel unloved here so he would be open to a move, Lowish bid comes in and we accept citing that it’s right because he wants to look for other opportunities.

We well for £2m or so and he goes in to greater strengths

It’s just so sad that we end up stuck with the likes of Bennett, at the latter stages of his career, because of his versatility and commitment over the more able, and more potential in Nyambe.

This will happen when you have players (and agents) with more ambition than the manager.

Also interesting in @Miller11’s recent post about the stable that Mowbray and most of our managers have come from. Is this Venkys doing or Suhail’s?

Ignorant owners?

Opportunist ‘advisers’?

Board members promoted beyond their capabilities?

Comfortable, autonomous manager?

It’s pretty inevitable we’ll end up with those players happy to pick up a salary and lose the ones with more ambition.

We need a real, positive event this Summer (and I don’t mean a pop concert). Get in a decent keeper and a known ex-PL striker to replace Graham and we’ll make do with loans, youth and frees.
