meant not many big cash signings. 

Will be interest How Rovers will use the Armstrong's money. I expect we see a couple of low cash signings from the money. 

in this wretched era of our proud history rovers operate on the basis  of selling your best player at the last minute for less than the market value,then we don`t have enough time to get a replacement in,mowbray then panics,buys someone cheap and over the hill or gets a complete tool on loan,i.e walton,on the other hand when he was given a sizeable amount to spend and plenty of time to spend it he bought two centre forwards we did`nt need,brought the excellent harrison reed in on loan then preceded to play them all out of position!!!!!!!!and to think some fans think we can finish in the top six😂

Famara Diedhou is being strongly linked with Boro and Swansea on a free transfer. 1 in 3 goal record and a powerful targetman who always seems to cause us problems and can link play too. Too sensible for Mowbray though who would have him out wide in his deluded idealistic tika taka philosophy.

Would be absolutely ideal

Brereton Diedhou Obafemi

With 

         Rothwell (dack) 

Travis        Davenport (or new cm) 

Pickering leninhan Wharton nyambe 

         Kaminski

Surely with the right management above, thats a top 6 team, aslong as Pickering is an improvement than our recent lbs

Hes on around £20,000 per week. We cant afford that.

We’d have to wait for him to sign for Boro before Mowbray would consider him.

I think we have young talent attacking players like JRC, Dolan, Buckley, Butterworth etc who can play this style Mowbray wants. 

Yes it is likely that Armstrong will go but depending how we replace him and the goals. I am looking for the team to score goals whether its Lenihan and Ayala to chip or Travis and Buckley from Midfield, or Brereton to score more this season. 

Who knows what the finances are like but I am not expecting big cash signings from most Championship teams this window and expect alot of free transfers, loans and low cash signings. 

I know how and who I would replace Armstrong with. But lets see how the club does this?

sad to hear that you arent renewing. 

I can't wait to get back to watch live in stadium football at Ewood Park. last 16 months without has been tough and something I don't to happen again

Butterworth is nearly 22 and hasn't started a game of professional league football yet.

Not a chance he makes it at Rovers.

How can keeping Armstrong equate to bottom half mediocrity? I’d sooner keep him, pot the gang of three, and get promotion. If it means letting Adam go for free it would be a bargain. How can the seasons 2nd top scorer equal mediocrity? I’m at a loss to understand your logic.

Read the post that I quoted and then my post again.

Then look at last seasons final league table.

The facts are Mowbray needs players like Armstrong, Dack, Travis etc and a host of young talent to pick from. Alongside high end young loaness just to maintain mid/lower midtable.

Shows how tough the championship is but also shows he and his crew haven't got a scooby how to make the best of what's available to them.

Just an ongoing experiment they play around with under very little inside pressure.

Best job in the Championship by a long way, easy money.

That is due to the injuries he keeps getting.He would have played more but for them 

If he can get over them then he has a chance ,looks a talent from whenever I have seen him and has a bit of aggression and nastiness about him ,if he doesn't make it in the game it won't be due to talent but like I say his injury record awful maybe just doesn't have the body for the professional game

Doesn't matter, he still hasn't played. Back injuries at that age isn't a good sign.

Don't doubt he is talented, but I would be amazed if he succeeds here.

This year make or break for him, doubt much if any will be spent on bringing players in ,he will get a chance this season if he doesn't break down with another long term injury

If we want to get promoted we need to keep Armstrong and get rid of Mowbray.

If we want to get relegated we need to sell Armstrong and keep Mowbray.

If we want to have mid table mediocrity we need to keep Mowbray and keep Armstrong, just like we did last season.

 

That's basically what has been posted. Which part doesn't make sense?

Last season proved it.

Latest 'update' on the smooth the path to transfer project is that allegedly Armstrong still has an offer on the table that would make him the club's highest paid player.

This is an interesting development. I wonder who has recently added the info about him being highest paid player into the equation? it hasn't been mentioned before....

They really must think we were born yesterday.

He would be an excellent signing
