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 still can't get round Mowbray's comments yesterday. So inconsistent with the message from earlier this window.

After the Ayala deal the word was we were looking to swiftly move on to the next position, widely believed to be LB, with hopes and expectations being that a prime target would be in the building very soon.

The suggestion was that we were working through a list of priorities and hoped they would fall like dominoes.

A couple of days later Mowbray is suggesting that LB isn't a focus of his attention, and that there remains a question as to whether he uses the remaining cash on one permanent signing or spreads around loans.

That isn't consistent with what was being said last week.

I hope and pray he is playing media games here because if we are down to having to ignore positions given limited cash we are going to struggle. Loans aren't the answer and I hope that they aren't priming us for a wait until early October when we do a late dash for a couple of loans

I think the tap has been turned off all of a sudden. Was only to be expected with the current financial uncertainty, zero revenue etc. Very frustrating. And I think Tony sounds frustrated too. Maybe they’d agreed a Manning deal and then the plug was pulled.

Its like something a manager says when he making an appeal to the board for more money. That or hes pissed that the Manning deal has got out and is throwing everyone off the scent.

( Doesnt want QPR coming back asking for more money or Manning/agent.) 

I suppose the easiet thing is to say we have no money to buy anyone - clubs dont try and drive up prices.

"The manager doesnt know that" says to me that its Waggot/ Venkys bloke dealing with it and the finances of the deal.

Hmm. A few things going on there. 

1 can’t build a Football club with loan players?

2 Young players can’t sustain consistency  ?

3 anything can You tell me about Ryan Manning. No. He is a name you have thrown out at  me. ?
We are not going to spend all our money on Ryan Manning. ?

4 we’ve got no money. ? I know to the penny how much we have got to spend  ?

TBH I am relaxed if we don’t see much more movement.

Club revenue is going through the floor, so I’d rather we weren’t overstretched as some clubs are going to struggle to carry - let it not be us. 

 

I'm happy with us relying on our Academy from here.

Just desperately need a competent LB. You wouldn't have to break the bank for one.

The end of that interview seems to suggest we won’t be bringing in a new left back. Which is very worrying. It is simply unforgivable if we don’t bring someone in there. It will cost us massively.

I don't think so. Looking at Mowbray's comments to Andy Bayes, one minute he says he got no money then saying we got for one permanent signing or 2 loan signings and then he says he knows to the penny how much we got to spend. So very confusing to be honest. 

when asked about Manning he says he like the player and we were believed to be close to signing on Friday given what has been said on here and twitter so what happen to this signing. Did the selling club pull the transfer or did the asking price change, Player fail the medical or personal terms change. 

We will see in the coming days and weeks. 

We cannot sell Armstrong for any price as he is key player in us being able to get promotion or not in my Opinion

So true.

I remember the likes of Geoff Hutt, Andy Burgin, Chris Sulley etc - left backs bought with washers and ten times better than Bell.

Just where the feck do our scouts look!?!?

Didn't see him starting, was thinking more of an impact tricky sub. Yesterday against a very poor side was the right thing to do but to start against thug defenders might not work. 

How much did we pay PNE?? (?). There's got to be a song. Ok he's not "...he came from Real Madrid, he didn't cost a quid...." but we've plenty of time to make one up. 

Two adaptations of the Chapman song:


There’s a star man, playing on the wing, he came from Preston North End and he didn’t cost a thing

There’s a star man, playing on the right, his name is Tyrhys Dolan and he thinks North End are shite.

Reading between the lines in the LT it would seem TM has asked for a bigger budget and been told no by the owners.  

Or preparing the fan base for the sale of one of our star players.

Other alternative is that it is a message to other clubs, agents and players to be more realistic.
