If Villa don't go up, I would get in for Mings. If Derby don't go up, we could do worse than Richard Keogh. 

Mings? Absolutely zero chance of that, he’s impressed there in his loan spell. No chance of him coming here or paying his wages. Keogh is an absolute donkey also.

In January Mowbray said that money had been made available by the owners for him to use if he wanted but that he had chosen not to use it, instead continuing with what we had with a view to that cash being available at a later date when it was better to do business. He either said or strongly inferred that the money would be ring fenced for later use and not lost.

Last summer he spoke of a multi season project being agreed and set in motion. He spoke of the owners wanting promotion but him slowing them down and selling them the gradual build model. He claimed money was available all summer and the bulk of it was then spent on Brereton.

After the end of this season he spoke about aiming for the play-offs and promotion and targeting new players who would improve the team. He mentioned defender(s) coming in for starters.

Going to look a bit silly if all that was nonsense or they've backtracked again and we end up with no money or having to sell to buy.

That's why my initial reaction was anger. I'm sick of being fed BS and it looks like I've eaten another four courses of it over the last 12 month. 

Every window is just lies, frustration and disappointment.

What is nagging away at me is whether TM's likeable, decent bloke stuff is merely being used as a front to reconcile us to the long term lack of Venky's ambition.

How on earth are we a better option than the clubs they are currently at?

Said months ago that we will not be signing ready made first 11 signings, and stick by that. 

The team that lines up on the opening day next season will be...

Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Williams, Bell, Bennett, Travis, Evans, Rothwell, Dack, Graham. With a few new lads on the bench who will be waiting there turn for the next 6 months.

Keogh is a great Championship defender.

Villa won't be splashing the cash if they don't go up.

There's no denying that Berahino is a top talent, but even if Mowbray could set him straight here (which would be a long-shot), his wage demands would be well out of reach.

I can see him ending up at Burnlah.

Maybe Armstrong for Bennett & Bennett for Nyambe.

I can't imagine he will be in much of a negotiating position. He has done jack shit in 5 seasons. 

If he wanted to sort himself out, coming here with Mowbray as manager would be the best move for him. I have no idea if Mowbray would be interested though.

I heard that it isn't actually Tony Mowbray at all, but an actor done up to look like him. Madame has the real Tony locked in her basement.  Not claiming to be ITK, so make of it what you will!

Sambou scoring a cracker against our U23s this season, with Magloire making an absolute hash of things in the process.

He can't start with that side.

He is playing a highly technical side this season with 2 up front so Ben can run the channels and dribble.

 

Personally speaking, that side won't be far off the mark.

 

Chapman - Lyca new signing

Samuel - Lyca new signing

Ben B - been brilliant in training - Lyca new signing

Ben G - getting there - come Jan will be... Lyca new signing

Getting a bit sick of all the negativity on this forum atm. Ffs get a life and give Mowbray a chance to do what he said needed doing this summer. He hasn't been back a week yet from talks and you're already on his back. 

Yeah your right. Forget the venkys wanted to spend on a promotion push and he had to reign them in, forget he said there is cash left over from two windows and now it's vanished, forget that we have to sell our best players and replace them with unproven youth players. Forget that the sole aim of our club is to churn out talent for clubs with ambition, forget he said we need to sign proven championship quality players because the ones we have aren't good enough then back tracked and now we are signing players who need development, forget he said top two is the aim and then everything else that followed suggests a team treading water , forget he's set up a scouting system but we are still being linked to ex Coventry players who have done nothing.

Your right I am negative. I never used to be but I am because i can see what's happening. I wish I could pretend all is going to be rosy and we are slowly building something, we are not. I don't believe Tony can take us forward, I don't believe venkys have our best intentions and I don't believe we will get anywhere near the top six why either is in charge. 

I will stop posting and moaning and lurk in the background because I love this club and want my children to see a full ewood and premier league football and it hurts me that they will never feel the way I did when they are watching mowbray play an ex Coventry striker on the left wing and seeing darragh, dack and anyone else who has a half decent season flogged to a promotion chasing team to see the funds thrown into a blackhole that can probably never be plugged.

The last 12 months and with Tony saying they wanted to back a promotion and there was cash left gave me a glimmer of hope after what has been a horrific decade. You want to be positive fine, I say your burying your head in the sand to the reality of what we are and we're we are going....nowhere

I'm out. Enjoy your transfer thread.

If you have ever heard a politician speak and listen to mowbray you will work it out.

Same names cropping up. Talk about lack of ambition

Talk about supporters' lack of imagination while playing Championship Manager...
