Why does everyone think Harvey Elliott is amazing? He has a handful of senior appearances, I don’t don’t know anything about the lad but surely can’t make big statements on seeing maybe 2 or 3 matches in the league cup

Looks like a quicker Grealish, seriously.

I've not seen a lot of him myself but I live in Liverpool and he's really well thought of with their fans. Trains with the first team and was expected to be challenging for minutes this season, albeit most likely in cup games. It's a great move for him to get more game time (assuming he's good enough to oust our current options).

Rovers may or may not get in playoffs, or push for promotion. But these moves show a keen interest in building the roster to be big time. We’ve got everything on our wish list, and more, if Harv Elliott joins. I’m very excited about the Rest of the season.

They are all loans mate, as we know its shit or bust for Mowbray now.  He will need to start again in the summer.  Tonys last roll of the dice

Ideal replacement for Brereton on the left of the front three if we sign him ??

Because when transfer windows come round, no-one ever suggests we sign a particular player but as soon as we are linked with them, no matter how obscure the player is, all of a sudden everyone knows their life history, inside leg measurement and solemnly declares they are the greatest keeper/defender/midfielder/attacker ever to lace up a pair of boots and we absolutely must have them!

Harvey Elliott is hardly "obscure". 

He's one of the most highly rated young players in the country!

Elliott would be an interesting one. Not proven by any means, but a very exciting talent whenever I have seen him.

I am not of the opinion whereby you ignore opportunities to try and develop your own, there is no reason why we can't do both and I am not convinced regarding our current options over the course of a season. 

Obviously a third loan is not ideal but it seems that we are shaping up for a season whereby the focus is on promotion this season.

Must admit, I assumed Douglas was going to be a permanent signing. Disappointed it's a loan as if he does well we'll probably be priced out of a permanent move for him and we'll be back to square one again.

Not if he helps us get promoted though.

All managers know there is a season every so often where everything just comes into line and you have a really good chance of promotion.  I suspect Mowbray has told the owners that this is the season for us, based on the start we have had and the way the squad is performing together, and said I just need x, y & z to give us the depth we need, and they have said "go for it".

He knows that in this league you only a get a one season window to make it happen (two if you are lucky) before your best players get snapped up by PL clubs and you have to start over to build again ( which is where Brentford now are, having messed up their chance last season).

Going to be an interesting season ...lots of £10 payments to iFollow to come.

So, no cash injection from the Venky's and Mowbray's been pulling our legs all along with talk of 'one player or 2 loans'? Or last minute funding similar to 2 summers ago?

Something has definitely changed over the last few days that’s for sure

His contract is up at the end of the season, when he will be 32.

He’s out of contract next summer Rev so don’t worry about that. Get excited ;)

Sorry, I don't make a habit of watching Liverpool's Carabao Cup games or under 23 matches. Must try harder I suppose.

He wasn't a name on anyone's lips yesterday though unless I missed it.........
