Chaddy you are being daft.

If say Healey had a few offers in, would you want to move on from him if he didn't decide straight away to sign for us?

You act like it should be every players dream to sign for us

 

No its called forward planning and making sure we were ready to sign a replacement as soon as Armstrong deal was done. But Mowbray and Rovers wasted 2 weeks chasing a player who has no interest in being here. 

on your scenario, I want answer from any player as soon as possible and would set a deadline.  We have games to players. 

No clearly its not but we can't be wasting time and effort on players who don;'t want to come to play first team football

They don't excite anybody, not just me. 

There is no point me suggesting players, I'm only interested in reality, not hypotheticals.  Goals in Scotland ,League 1 or below are no barometer for the standard we need to replace Armstrong. 

Good for you then. I rather discuss potential players thats we should have been targets. If you don't want then please bother replying to me thanks. 

Also how many championship goals did Armstrong before he signed here.

In defence of Chaddy, I don't think Obafemi will sign for us.  I also totally agree with him that it's ludicrous that we are facing the prospect of not replacing Arma's 30 goals a season. Villa lost Grealish and had done their business before they accepted City's offer. Difference being of course, Grealish had at least 3 years left on his contract so the ball was in their court.

I'm also not being swept away by this decent start to the season.  We will fall away and we will struggle - none of the signings so far have convinced me otherwise.  If we don't sign a half decent striker I fear for us a little.

That's the point I am making is Rovers and Mowbray would have know for 6 months that Armstrong would have been off last January/ February. Rovers and Mowbray should have been scouting and researching potential replacements. Other teams do it but Rovers and Mowbray haven't and now its costing. Is  it so hard to plan.

Doesn't sound like he will be rotting there. He will either be here, which would be a great signing, or he will go to a better run club, with a better chance of promotion. Probably the latter 

Let him go to these other clubs then. You mention West Brom and Fulham who both signed strikers this past week so why would they need Obafemi. 

You

It's obvious imo & probably among most that Obafemi doesn't want to come. He's had a sniff at premier football and doesn't want to let go hoping there's still a chance he can make it. Quality footballer he may be but no point us having an unhappy player who can't make a decision on his future.

You said it didn't matter we had no head of recruitment for 5 months. You said the work had been done on transfers before the last guy left. Do you now admit that things are shambolic? 

You can blame the head of recruitment if you want but given we after Harvey left and we still have interim Head of recruitment in Glyn Chamberlain but the man who is responsible is Mowbray and he makes the decision the who we sign at the end of day. So is the man to blame for this summer recruitment mess

Mowbray needs sacking because he has overseen obvious regression in this last year, and Waggott needs sacking for offering no value to the club at any point during his time either. Neither need sacking purely based on petulance over a potential inability to get a permanent striker in on a pittance.

You keep obsessing about Obafemi as if Mowbray is sat there waiting for a phone call back from him, that sky sports transfer centre just regurgitates news, there is no sign that we are still after him, and you are so naive as others have said in thinking that players will come here desperate to play for us. You keep suggesting the same players, 2 are injured, (Simms, Morris) one is a player that you have only seen on youtube, (Healey) another is not a striker (Dale) and one is being linked with £5m moves.

We wont sign a permanent striker because seemingly we have barely any money, even after the massive profit on the Armstrong deal.

If you want to keep defending Mowbray and Waggott then carry on please but I won't. Mowbray has known for months this situation that Armstrong would move on was coming. So he and his staff should have been planning for months for different shortlist for different prices. Something Mowbray has mention several times himself. As we were in talks with Southampton over the Armstrong deal, Rovers under Waggott and Mowbray leadership should have been putting bids for several transfer targets. 

Keep having a go at me if you want for suggesting transfer targets and players we could be signing weeks ago if we have a proper recruitment and transfer plan from our 2 management leaders at the club in Waggott and Mowbray. Simms is almost back in transfer and had a good spell at Blackpool last season. Morris was fit 2 weeks ago so we could have signed him before his injury. I've seen Healey's goals on Youtube for MK Dons and Toulouse and he knows the goals are. Dale can play anyway in the front 3. Charles is available for 750k and scores goals. Why not bring in him? 

I'm sorry to say this but the only reason we won't sign a permanent striker is down to the completely and utter incompetence of Mowbray and Waggott failure to be decisive and do some long term planning in terms of recruitment and scouting.

For a striker I’d be asking how much Barnsley would be wanting for Cauley Woodrow, always impressed me 

I agree. Would be a good signing and someone I have mention several times. 

Have you heard anything about any potential signings or interest in players before tomorrow deadline?

Haven’t read the thread but the Brighton winger has signed and they’ve told Obafemi he has until 10am tomorrow to show intent. 

Wouldn't have signed the Brighton winger at all. Rather use JRC further forward. 

Can't believe Mowbray and Rovers have gone back for Obafemi. This is one of the main reason I would like a see recruitment and signing decisions taking away and we move to a modern day Football managerial set up of sporting director and head coach structure.

Interesting signing this lad can’t say I know too much about him but a decent cheap gamble maybe  (full name Adetayo Oluwatosin Olusegun Adio Aduramigba Iretioluwa Edun)

So the only two cash signings we've made thus far in the last two transfer windows are both left backs....

He might be a decent player. And I'm pleased to see permanent signings rather than loans. But it again strikes me that there is no serious planning to our transfer business.

I havent been convinced at all by Pickering and we do need a second left back anyway. But spending money on one would be very odd if we as expected dont sign a striker. Likelihood is that he (or Pickering) would struggle to make the bench when both are fit, just because of the size of squads.

He better be perfectly competent at RB too, because it will be bizarre even for us if our only spending this summer, the only place we permanently recruit, is twice at left back.

A backup LB (or potential first choice if Pickering doesn't deliver) is one of the areas I'd have been fine with us only loaning a player whilst we see if Pickering finds his feet.

Cracking post on the Lincoln City forum;

I think Edun will get a very well deserved move to the championship, I just hope he chooses the right team. As far as I’m aware, Blackburn are a well run club these days so think it would be a good move for him.”

thought we have very little money but have 500k for second left back? 

So clearly we do have money but Mowbray won't move on from Obafemi being his main choice. Probably get him on loan deal whilst we sign Edun for 500k

You going to admitted its Mowbray inability to move on from targets that will cost us signing a permanent striker this window?

if only he knew😆,this lad can play in the centre of the park as well as left back,that probably was the clincher in  a mowbray deal

If our sole permanent signing is this Edun, for whom nothing is confirmed so its all hypothetical, then I would question why it has been spent on a left back but also I would say that why was the budget so low in the first place, and indeed what striker could we get for that amount.

Everything I’ve read about this guy suggests he is equally strong in midfield as he is at left back.

clever signing at 500k, think this also means we have money for a striker. Quite excited to see who we get now.
