JAL answered at least one of the main questions before on this forum a while ago, and the answer to the main question is also available elsewhere provided by a different person although a little harder to find since a certain website was taken down which you apparently read. So you should have your answer already.

Now I don't always agree with JAL's sometimes OTT criticism about certain players , and think the infestation that JAL hints at, is now tightly contained,

I will use what you have said when evading questions previously to help you get the answers,   search for it yourself!   

 

Infestation of what? Yes Conning company has one player on his books at Rovers 1st team level. Yes one. 

Nuttall isnt a member of Simon Conning 2 football agencies. So why is he so against Nuttall? Just like his vendetta on Nyambe all last season. Basically cos of his agent. 

Here is Conning profile on

For a bit of balance Connings association at Rovers goes back way pre Venkys. I might be wrong but I think he was Sambas agent. That shows he can get decent players although Sambas departure shows the other side of it as it was a bit mysterious but fit right in with the times. Also his constant demands for stupid money was badly advised.

 

 

 

Bloody hell, didn't realise who he was till you said this. I met him in the woodlands when watching Rovers once, gave me a signed photo of samba, had a decent chat with him, seemed alright if a bit of dodgy wheeler dealer type.

Anyone that needs 3 different companies - essentially doing the same thing.-should set alarm bells ringing.  But hey ho. Such is the modern world.

When you dig in the murky world of football agents things like that aren't uncommon unsurprisingly enough and a lot wee in the same pots even if it doesn't show at companies house.

4 OR 5 signings to be announced by Thursday evening. Lots to happen this week. Nothing confirmed yet. Should be interesting. Rovers certainly doing well at keeping things quiet if indeed we're close to making these exciting additions.

Mowbray said 3 maybe 4 I thought?

How do you know Conning is his agent? Also why do you dislike Conning so much? Seen nothing from you to prove anything so far. No meat on any bones so far

Proof? Really? What are you going on about again

Nuttall agents are MLS same as darragh , nothing to do with conning

Mowbray said on Radio Lancashire on Wednesday or Thursday last week that he could see another 4 or maybe 5 arrivals, but one might be back end i.e. late August when the loan window closes.

I interpret that as meaning at least 3 maybe 4 permanent arrivals this week. Armstrong may well be one so another 2 or 3 required.

You aren’t the chap who was complaining about the Hull tickets are you? 🤣

 

I’d happily stick with the squad that we have now, than going out and buying for the sake of it. 

No-one is remotely suggesting buying for the sake of it. Anyway, we already seem to have more than enough such purchases-Caddid, Gladwin. and others.

The point is that we have had enough lead in time to be able to analyse our squad, then select and bring in players to strengthen key positions, especially since we are now in a higher league.

Hopefully 3 signings including Armstrong and we spend over 5 million pounds. 

 

Mowbray said he wanted 4 maybe 5 so that should mean Armstrong PLUS another 3 or 4 unless the goalposts have moved since late last week.

Venky's, goalposts moving? ...Just saying!

Not many will be happy at being lied to about a 'competitive budget', in order to sell season tickets. You choose to be fooled, that's your choice.

Interesting.

Actually, Mowbray's honesty has been crucial to me and many others.The faintest suggestion that he has been a total company man, merely covering for Venky's and spinning the financial message would be very damaging.

Personally, I would be very surprised, if that turned out to be the case....but what do I know etc

I've never read or hear anything about 4/5 players in by Thursday? Maybe end of August?

I have read TM wanted 4/5 but does that include the 3 already in, 4 if Armstrong signs?

No. He was as clear as he possibly could be that he expected at least another 4 or possibly 5 additional players in the building.

True, he didn't specify Thursday as being the point to achieve that but you would think/hope that most of those would be done by then rather than in 3 weeks by which time a lot of games will have passed by.

He did say one might be 'late on' which suggests that means later in August whilst the others will be sooner.

That target has nothing to do with those already in this summer and that interview was given before the Armstrong rumours circulated and Mowbray confirmed that deal was close after the game on Saturday.

Would be great to get Armstrong in the building today (or as quickly as possible) so that they can work on the remaining signings. This transfer window is going to be hectic this week across the board. 

On a side note - could we have a separate Agents thread as it gets quite boring and I would at least know which thread to avoid.

From what Mowbray is quoted as saying in today's Telegraph it sounds like he would like Armstrong and another three players in before the end of the window.  Those four with the three already signed would give him the '6 or 7' he talked about earlier in the summer.

He also said something along the lines of not being surprised if we make a loan signing after the main one closes.

It would be good idea imo to do this, some of the fringe players in the premier league will not be sure as of yet whether they are to be suitably involved (especially u21s that don’t need to be registered to squads) in first team matters. Last week of August, the picture is much clearer.
