Summer Transfer Window


Recommended Posts

Still a bit in shock after today. Thought we had a great window after Ayala, Kaminski and Douglas joined, then Turnbull came, and the most exciting one in Elliott. I never believed in a million years he was available nor that we afford him.

Summary:

Out: Graham (38 games / 4 goals), Samuel (15 games / 2 goals), Smallwood, Walton, Adebayaro, Leutwiler, Hart, Mulgrew, Fisher

In: Kaminski, The Greek, Pears, Ayala, Douglas, Turnbull, Dolan, Elliott, (McBride). Transfer outlay probably 1-1.5 mill all together (depending on Elliott's loan fee)

Except Adebayaro, nobody made an impact of note last season. Ayala replacing him with his leadership qualities should be as good or better. The rest should be a major upgrade on the ones that left. 

Considering Johnson, Rothwell, Hotlby, Williams looks better this year we are in such a far better shape than last season when we were close to play-offs. I even forgot Dack is returning.

The last two seasons I've claimed we've a mid-table squad, now I'll say it's top six squad. Now Tony has the squad he wants and the style he wants, so it's up to him to bring it together.

I saw that - had to bite my lips, ass cheeks, foreskin and everything else to not comment.

They completely fucked it all up, badly advised or whatever, they should have done their own research and some soul searching along the way. It's caused some unforgettable stuff, but, at some stage it would be nice to have all involved as a collective.

I guess they have tried to make amends through money

At the end of the day we are being backed and splashing the cash on deadline day, while others struggle on.

There are no others out there who will back us so why not try and get along

Didn't feel like it but it is 9 out, 9 in.

Plus Mols and White gone on loan.

Its a strange do if chaddy is called negative after a signing spree!

To be fair to him, he said beforehand that he didnt want a winger and he is sticking to that opinion. Disagreed at the time and still do but fair play for not changing his opinion ?

What you reckon to Douglas mate? You happy with that one or would you have preferred Cunningham?

Im worried about injury proneness a little with him, and lacks a bit of speed, but IMO the creativity and set pieces more than make up for it

 You should try the ICBINF - he changes tack every time Boris Johnson does a U-turn, ie at least twice a week.

Game changing window. Harvey Elliot - the coup of the day. Didn't expect that one at the start of the day. 

Overall, I'd say us and Forest have been the biggest winners in this window and look very strong. Forest have made some cracking signings. Brentford have probably been the biggest losers. 

Pffffft - don’t suggest anything other than a Brentford masterclass pal. Watkins and Benrahma for £60m vs Ivan Toney and a couple of others...and a guaranteed to finish above us apparently...?

A window in which on paper the manager has utilised fairly limited resources very capably, with 2 fees of under half a million, 3 freebies and 3 loans, and it warrants asking to welcome back the idiots owners!

I don't care if they spend £100 million in the next window, that's not going to happen. My respect and loyalty are not for sale.

I know it’s too early to say and trust me  I am old enough to know better but this window really has got me buzzing , I genuinely think this (if all our main players stay fit) team/squad  is promotion material .

its the best window we’ve had since PL days , when we got related and signed the likes of Murphy Etuhu Rhodes etc I was initially very confident of promotion even though “he” was manager ,  obviously that went to rat shit but this feels even more promising It’s just a bloody shame we won’t be there to watch it

What a busy transfer deadline day for Rovers. 4 in and 2 out. 

Trybull I dont know much about him tbh..is he ball winning midfielder or passing one? 

Douglas is a good signing. Worried about his injuries but hopefully that does happen here. 

Elliott. Isn't he a left footed winger who played on the right wing? Surprise we gone for a winger tbh considering the 6 options already we got. 

Signing Pears maybe sense now Fisher gone. Fisher needed to leave and play somewhere. Hopefully that happens now for him

6 wing options? Chaddy, If Elliott takes Breretons spot on the left of that front three then it’s a definite improvement?? He’s played on the left and the right from what I’ve read so that’s good.

 @Sparks Rover is the mastermind behind that ruse. Sparks is also Ben Whiteman...who was also on the grassy knoll when JFK was shot. This shit runs deep. 

It’s all good fun and taken lightly, but you really shouldn’t talk people out of posting what they hear. It’s not always right. It’s often in fact, nonsense. But sometimes it’s right and we will always encourage people to post rumours on sometimes being often enough.

Not sure if this is aimed at me but I wasn't talking anyone out of posting anything. And none of this should be taken seriously. If anyone has a genuine problem with anyone on here then they need to have a good hard look at themselves.

He is one of the signings that I would say I am most happy with. Ayala is the main one for me, the one I am most confident on but I am happy with Douglas.

The injuries are of course a concern and I would have preferred Cunningham, who also has injury conerns. Also, my worry is that we are in a similar position to in net a year ago, in 12 months we havent got a left back, Douglas will be a free agent but also 32. But I am happy with his signing, I think he is a big upgrade, he also can give us good set pieces which is a bonus. I dont think pace is critical and he will be an attacking threat.
