Our Young Guns will be having some fun this season though.

Moyes rang AA up promising him more Freedom to express himself playing alongside their Bad Boys. He said "I'm Your Man!".

My thoughts on it are there's a contract on the table for reach. He's ex Boro so it'll be a good one and they'll be waiting as usual for him to decide.  It'll be set to suck up the majority of wages that have been allowed to be spent from those released.

Then it's a case of if he accepts then the few peanuts left will go to something very cheap. If he declines there's a few more shirt buttons to put towards a few better loans.

A revolutionary way to do business but as we know a good wage always seems available to anybody whose dots join the right way.

Mowbray is doing what he does best - absolving himself from any blame as he sees the writing on the wall. He has never once accepted any culpability in the mess Rovers have become for a large part of his tenure. He is a self serving, egotistical pillock and I just wish he would piss off away from my club.

He doesn't do accepting blame 

I was thinking about this actually, how all the good managers do it. I suppose it's easy for them though, Klopp or Pep. When they are winning more than not. Mowbray is a loser basically, like definitely last season. So it probably really stings to admit that. At his age though, he should be able to. He is a highly paid manager , just one level below arguably the biggest league in the world. Yet, he can't and won't. It's a very bad trait in a person.

Reach is probably weighing up his options, stringing it out as long as he can to get the best deal for himself. 

After his latest excuse making of the squad being too young, If Mowbray just ends up doing his usual of loaning other clubs' young players, then he's going to look an even bigger fool than usual.

We need players with experience and presence to help our young players along.

Can tell you're a DJ mate it took me 5 mins to think of one ref to Wham. You've dropped 3 in at once 🤣

I'd agree if the club didn't need money being brought in in the next 12 months to prevent us being sanctioned again.

If we don't sell Armstrong and let him go on a free who are we selling for 10+ million next summer?

Would we be that much worse off?

We wouldn't be forking out on 5 loan fees of say £500k and wouldn't be paying a contribution of say £20k p.w. towards said players wages. So £3.5m saved there.

Plus if any of our own players come along well, we'd have options to balance the books in due course whereas if they're kept out of the team we'll never know and their value will never increase.

Last Christmas he gave us some heart

But the very next day (or month) he gave it away

This year to save us from tears

We should give it to someone better.

(Can't stand Wham either) 🤣

Well, if he is, its taken 3 years to get there and his contract is up in a year, so he could bugger off for nothing.

Does that represent 7M well invested to you?

That wasn’t what I said, he is a championship level player now, regardless of fee or time. 

If we do lose him for nothing then obviously that’s awful business, if he signs a new deal then you can bet we’ll get our money back minimum

The LT claimed that the most we contributed to a wage last season was 10k pw.

I was guesstimating a total of £20k p.w. for five players I.e. wage contribution of £4k per week on average. Might be on the low side.

Whilst Elliott and THB were good we could easily end up with 5 like Douglas, Trybull or Branthwaite as well.

If we were chucking 10k pwk to each of Douglas, Trybull etc it's still hard to argue it's good business.

So someone through the door tomorrow then, one way or another. At least it will give us something to talk about m.

Think it’s Rothwell away, and either Reach in or Doyle on loan from City.

Has the doorman at Ewood, been made use of yet ?

The point is its not in our hands is it? He holds all the cards .Never should have been bought in the first place---nothing happened for 2 years!

But now it might his contract is running down!!

 Brilliant--you could't make it up.

Think it was said in the LT we were only contributing £2k p.w. to Trybull. Still 2k too much for me.

The rest were presumably all more expensive.
