I think Trybull will find it the hardest but he will be an able backup rather than somebody that slots straight in. That said, he is in last year of contract and their will not be stipulations that he has to play an x amount of games etc. Different kind of loan to Elliott. He will have to prove himself to get a contract from us at end of season - same goes for Douglas but he should surely be in over Bell (has to be).

He isnt in his final year:

I am also unconvinced that he is coming as back up.

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

Best transfer window since Venkys rolled up.

We've filled gaps in the squad (Kaminski, Ayala), improved what we have/created competition (Douglas, Elliott), and have a capable placeholder covering for a key squad member (Trybull). Over to you Tone...

As much as we've obviously signed some quality players, I have a niggling worry. On the assumption that players only come on loan if they're going to get game time, we've got Trybull to fit in the midfield 3 with Evans, Travis, Johnson, Rothwell, Rankin-Costello (maybe) and Holtby. Are we going to rotate constantly or drop some on-form players? I'm working on the idea that Dack and Armstrong are in our front 3 somewhere which leaves 1 spot for Elliott, Dolan, Brereton, Gallagher, Rankin-Costello (I haven't worked him out yet), Chapman and perhaps even Bell wide left. Dear God that's verging on too much depth if money for wages is supposed to be tight. Would rather have signed another centre back myself....

As someone said yesterday, fixtures are going to come thick and fast this season so it could we be the team with the biggest squad that goes up.

Very different season to come.  Mowbray gets what he wants (more or less) Venkys put another 18 million into the club presumably to keep us afloat over Covid but also to cover salaries for our new players.

For the first time, Mowbray now needs to deliver.

Yes, he had no excuses now.

Well Tony....I have been one of your most fierce critics. This window looks like it’s been the best in years.....you have cracking pegs already at the club....and this week some very exciting new pegs have arrived. All you need to do is put them in the right holes ...... if you can....we will all be with you !

Love a good pegging...

Wow. 
 

That is an impressive window. And we didn’t even look like selling one of our goodies.
 

What an impressive squad. 
 

Seriously, do we have the strongest (Championship) squad on paper? Or is that just me being overly optimistic?

Maaaannnn ....

 

I know hardly anything about most other championship teams so I would have to say we have the best squad BY FAR.

Ok, i stand corrected. Pretty sure I read a lot of people saying he was.

That said, I still doubt he will have stipulations in the deal to play in the same way that Elliott might. Norwich want him gone and at his age, he is hardly going to develop further. Think this is more of a prove to us we should sign you or get yourself into the shop window for other clubs.

Yep.

A window better than we dared hope for.

etc etc

Providing Mowbray loses his square pegs in round holes syndrome, I think we'll walk it.

Just put £150 on Rovers for promotion at 13/2.

Good enough for you? 

 

Brilliant response!

Kalinski - looks sound though early days

Stergiakis - ticks the boxes as a good no 2 ready to challenge for no 1

Pears - don't get at all, IMO, bang average and a four year contract is ridiculous

Ayala - steady but brings experience

Douglas - shrewd, hope the lad stays fit

Trybull - adds to the depth but mystified why Norwich would loan him to us if such a player

Dolan - the lad excites me, could be a gem - let's see if he maintains form

Elliott - Liverpool friend has just phoned who I rate as as a good judge of football.  Reckons Elliott will blow the opposition away and help fire us to PL 

IMO, top two is there for the taking this season.  Confidence and momentum is everything.

For entertainment value Mercer is the best poster on this board. Anyone who says different is lying ?... Putting Elliott in for Brereton in that front three is a huge improvement, top signing. IFollow take my f***ing money now it’s yours. :lol:

A pleasing window and better than most of us would have expected, myself included. We have good options now.

Mowbray will have to whip them into shape and get them working well.

It does seem Venkys have allowed Mowbray a decent wage budget to get good players in the building so credit goes out for that.

Without wanting to put a dampner on a good day's business I want us to urgently address the contact situations.

We should be all set until May but after that we've a raft of players out of contract or at the end of loans. That must be addressed over the coming months or we will be in trouble next summer.

I can’t argue with any of that. The only thing I would add is that Pears seems to be on the back of Fisher leaving so I can see a bit of sense in it. Don’t know enough about him to be honest but guess he’s a replacement for Fisher and hopefully not on big money.

Ive had a similar call from a Liverpool supporting friend who has a very similar opinion of Elliott. Meant to be quite a talent. 
Like you, I hope Mowbray keeps it simple and plays our best players in their best positions. It’s not hard. Don’t over complicate things. 
Think we both agree on the window.
