If he were in that sort of bracket he wouldn't be on loan to us. 

 

There's going to be an awful lot of unhappy players in Mowbray's squad. As someone has pointed out, Mowbray can only pick 11.

On the other hand, the bran tub of Tony's Tombola has just got even deeper.

Stand by for more chopping and changing and different tactics every week to try and keep the camp happy.  

Jesus Christ, are you being negative to play devils advocate? If we’d signed nobody you’d be complaining that we have too small of a squad

According to my reckoning means no Chapman in the 25 Apologies if I missed anyone else

Do you have to register youngsters 

In most leagues and competitions anyone under a certain age does not need to be registered.

Does that apply to the Liverpool lad as well?

No - I don't think it does......

Check. Tony's Tombola is now defunct. 

Tony will need an algorithm to help him pick a starting XI from that lot.

Honestly if you can't see the positives in this transfer window - especially the players we brought in today - you may as well not bother.

Is a 17-year-old going to be picked over Holtby, Johnson, Rothwell, Travis (when fit), the Norwich lad, and all the other experienced midfield players on the books?

I don't think so....unless Liverpool have a clause in the deal guaranteeing him game time. 

Think he’s guna play the brereton role so most likely an upgrade

Looking like a great day of business today if Elliott goes through, and a very good window, with all key areas supported that really needed it.

Just the one issue...

The goalkeeper hoarding is ridiculous, especially if Fisher doesn't go out on loan. He should have already been sent out as we are well covered there and he doesn't look good enough to be the backup anyway, rather have used any of the other young goalies. Now we are just going to have a pissed off bunch of youth goalies if Fisher doesn't go. It would be Fisher, the Greek, Hilton when returned, and even Eastham all fighting it out for one u23 spot! Eastham probably isnt getting near that tbh due to seniority from the others, so that makes it him, Goddard and Dowling is it, fighting for one u18 spot. Too many is better than too few if it's in budget, but goddamn that's excessive.

Overall I think we have been over cautious with the youngsters going out on loan in general, and it will stall their development. Apart from that, all looking good for the first team, just hope the signings prove as good as we hope.

I'd expect the young Greek lad and Fisher to go out on loan.

 It is possible to have too many players - unless some of them are being lined up for the exit door quickly Mowbray can't possibly keep that many happy.

Agreed, but my point was given the absolute shit show of the Venkys reign thus far I'm basking in this transfer windows glory, it literally couldn't have gone any better. And perhaps we are on our way out of the last 8 yrs of shite... excited to see if Tony can do what he really should with the squad he has assembled.

I expect them all to play their part with this year's schedule. Would certainly rather have it this way than looking too thin!

This is where the team spirit and good attitudes come into play also.

Yes, he's no excuse now. There can't be many clubs in this division with a squad that size. The wage bill must be astronomical. It sounds as if Tony has been given every single player he wanted. Anything other than a top 6 place now would be a failure on his part

If you want to play football at the intensity that we have been then you are going to need a big squad. We also have a long season ahead of us and in a short space of time.

I will take that as your version of giving Tony a little bit of credit ?
