I think the reason we failed FFP and got placed under the embargo, along with numerous other clubs, is because the club hasn't yet submitted its accounts. So it is an administrative issue, rather than the EFL assessing our books and adjudging us to be in breach of spending limits (which won't happen due to Covid otherwise everyone would be in breach).

But I think Waggott will use this to justify player sales and limited spending.

Try to convince people that we simply have to sell people and spend little to get ourselves compliant with the rules. Suits the 'never refuse a cheque' owners down to the ground.

Never shy to take advantage of a situation to direct blame elsewhere this lot.

Its very unlikely that any random website would have the accurate wages of our or indeed any players.

For example, Williams has gone and Dolan and Buckley have new deals since.

I dont doubt that there are disparities but I wouldnt use that as evidence personally.

No chance that’s accurate, Dolan may have come in around that but he’s not agreed a new deal on £600 a week when he was scoring goals in the first team.

Rovers should be offering new contracts to Lenihan and Travis

And why would they sign them?

Most us fans including me and you want the manager out, and I'm sure certain players are thinking the same.

Would you sign a new contract under a boss you have lost faith in when you could get a deal elsewhere?

more money and more job security. 

We don't know if they have have faith in Mowbray. Without being inside the Stadium we simply don't know. 

Of course I would like a change of manager and the new manager to make giving Lenihan and Travis new contracts a priority so we don't have another Armstrong situation again

Is Lenihan really worth a new contract? We've been terrible defensively for the last 3 seasons and he's been the main constant in said defence. Apart from protecting an asset that could draw a couple of million at the most, I'm largely uninspired with the idea of him hanging around on another long term contract

We aren't even in a position to offer new contracts to senior or even junior squad members, or get season tickets on sale to bring in much needed income.

The chances of us doing anything to bring in players from other clubs, especially when they would require a transfer fee and the club in question is gearing up for the play-offs, is virtually non-existent.

How and why would they have faith in Mowbray after the crash we had? 2 wins in 17 wasn't it? If they do, there is something wrong with them or they have an alterior motive

We probably wont make a signing for weeks into the window, especially a cash one, the usual. The budget hadn't been agreed. Mowbray doesn't know if he's staying. Basket case of a club.

Depends when the article was published. The other articles on that site relating to club wages were published 5 or 6 months ago. I can't see a date on the Rovers one so I presume it was done at the same time, which would fit in with Williams still being here and Dolan's wage.

Panic signings late summer it is then, apart from any ex Boro or TM's mates who we suddenly seem to get over the line without fuss.

Yes, but preceded by the usual talk about how the owners have made money available and how we are targeting/bidding for decent players but are refusing to be ripped off by greedy unreasonable players/agents.

Like Bauer and the ridiculous suggestion he was demanding £40k a week, or demanding a guarantee to play every week.

So this will all earn positive publicity but in the end yeah, it will be whoever City, Liverpool and Everton have who they want regular game time for and whoever Neil Warnock wants rid of at Boro.

Exciting times.

Young lad from Crewe and Bell on one side. Nyambe (who may have gone) and an injury prone JRC (who isn’t even a full back) on the other. 

Lenihan and another crock as the only ‘fit’ senior centre halves in the squad as it stands after Saturday.

Presumably he’s still here to oversee his fifth full season in August... and that’s the defence he’s put together.

Sharpe speculating Bell will be offered a deal. Seems likely. 

Another example of why we'll never move forwards under this management. Only ever interested in keeping HIS signing Bell yet loaning in whoever they can get to rotate him with.

He hasn't improved in all the time he's been here but he's another who gets jerked about, according to opposition whether he plays well or not. No wonder he looks half arsed most of the time.

Now likely to be rotated with Pickering next season when instead he should be let go. Pickering should be the new back up to a more experienced left back, loan or not. That's how you try to move forwards instead of jobs for the boys you like or are STILL trying to justify signing.

The other theory is that Pickering isn't a Mowbray signing, and he has no desire nor intention to use him next season, so his solution to that problem is to give Bell another year and play him instead.

With the contracts of Evans, Johnson, Trybull & Bennett all expiring, in addition to Holtby being let go, from a purely squad numbers point of view it's inevitable most of these will be offered new deals.

That's a lot of midfielders to replace in one window.

Terrible planning.

Looking at our defensive recruitments over the years I'm not sure we can afford to be picky. Chances of us getting anyone better in are slim to none imo, which isn't me saying Lenihan is a great defender, but noting our current bulletproof manager barely pays attention to defence (despite once being a defender) and has arguably never brought in a decent permanent defensive signing.

Tbf the players should be used to these crashes under TM as it's been a staple of his tenure here ever since we've been promoted back to the Championship. I don't think the players have faith in the manager getting us promoted, but I think they're happy enough to bob along in the Championship on decent enough contracts because hardly any of them are winners with any real ambition. Meanwhile if we do drop most of them know they'll get a gig somewhere else or they'll be able to keep sucking Rovers dry even if they rarely perform well (see Evans, Bennett, Bell, etc).
