How do we know there is no urgency? 3 years ago.. Back 4 v Southend 2017 Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Williams,    All 4 players still at the club and 3 nailed on to start ag

I don't want to be known as ITK. However, my good friend who has strong links at Wigan believes the deal with Kipre is pretty much a done deal with us.    I hope he's right. 

West Bromwich Albion are Founder Members of the Football League, they’ve spent around 80 seasons as a top flight club (10 seasons more than us), they’ve also won numerous trophies. They are a historic

So league one he got us promoted, his second season we survived and then his 3rd season top half finish. Is that not progress?

Can just imagine the headlines now with a surname like PEAR !  
 

He communicates well and is the son of our managers pal ... If Warnock wants to get rid after watching him says it all really ..... Old Motor Mouth knows his Pears from his Apples .. he’s always had a strong Goalies....

League 1 in which we should never have been. Mowbray brought in to save us. He had 15 games and failed, on goal difference to Forest. This season Forest missed out on the play offs on goal difference. Now that's progress, though Forest won't have regarded it as such, since they'd been in the playoff positions fora lot of the season.We're supposed to tout 11th, having been 10th as the season was halted. Mowbray decided to play a whole new scheme after the restart.He threw away a great chance to get us into the playoffs, something he'd declared to be the minimum requirement at the beginning of the season.

Judging Mowbray is something you resolutely do not do.

11 points 3 wins and 2 draws tremendous progress. Don’t forget Coyle in charge most of season also

I think it’s a pretty simple scenario....

if we are looking to progress, all our signings have to supersede the players they are replacing! 
 

every signing has to improve us, it’s that simple. TM has to pull the rabbit out of the hat this summer because he simply can’t afford to replace Tosin, Graham and Walton! 
 

It’s a big issue with the Loan market, a player has a good season, goes back to his parent club and you are left looking for a permanent replacement that simply that simply doesn’t fit your budget!

Rasmus Falk looks some player .. Him & Wind look awesome players ... 

Suppose they don’t live anywhere near North East so no chance ...   Shame ... 

Falk and the keeper are pretty much guaranteeing big moves this summer with their performances tonight.

Way, way out of our league.

IMO, if Iversen, Muric and Pears are our goalkeeping options then God help us.  Doubt Warnock would touch these with a sh1tty stick. Marshall at Wigan still seems to be the best option to me followed by the French lad we are said to have watched.

Let's be honest, the value lies in Europe, however, the evidence seems our new scouting set-up in Europe has turned up nothing.  You act decisively and make your moves whilst the rest still think about it.

IMO, shambolic planning for recruitment.

Forest with the bigger budget than us? Come on lad, even if we got to the playoffs and ended up going up we’d of embarrassed ourselves in Prem. nowhere near good enough to be going up yet. 2 or 3 seasons yet atleast before we’ll even be challenging.

Look at Leeds and Sheff U how long did it take them to get out of league 1? Sunderland are struggling now as it is!! 
 

Wake up ?

Seems premature to be saying this before we’ve even signed a single player though.

This isnt specifically anything to do with Mowbray but it is never too early to get promoted to the benefit of the club. And the quality towards the bottom of the Premier League means that with some calculated and wise spending, its not unfathomable to be competitive.

Also, the notion of it being 2 or 3 more seasons before we are challenging is totally flawed because it implies that the side sticks together and gradually improves. For various reasons that wont be possible and indeed it would be likely that the core of Nyambe, Lenihan, Travis, Dack and Armstrong will all be elsewhere in 3 seasons.

Really?

If you know what you are about then you have a plan and execute it.

Seems to me, we are still groping in the dark!

Think clueless would be a soft adjective.

I think maybe the point is however that plugging the gaping holes in Summer 2019 with loan players is shambolic, because now we're back where we where then.

So really that is a shambolic long term recruitment plan.

Yes we await to see what happens this summer, but with the amount of money Walton, Tosin and Cunningham will have cost us on loan deals (not cheap), we may as well have signed a Phillips/Pears/Bass type last year instead... rather than spending a lot of money paying wages for a player who'll never belong to us permanently in three different positions.

You don’t know how much we paid. Plus I’m not arsed about owning players. I just want the best players we can afford.

Walton is split and more than likely was seen as poor. But we couldn’t have afforded to buy players of the quality of Tosin and Cunningham so I’m completely fine with those choices tbh.
