Don’t you just love reading the same assumptions day in, day out, for nearly a year.

There's no assumption he has to be paid for however it's done and that's a fact as are the accounts and Mowbray himself confirming the fee.

We've loved your goal post moving assumptions on it though for nearly a year now trying to make out he's only cost a few quid so far and he's earning peanuts comparably speaking.

As usual real evidence points to the contrary but I suppose we can never rule out the late window Venky rush of blood that might agree to underwrite some more big commitment signings, loan or otherwise.

Goalkeeping situation unresolved. David Raya op has not been confirmed.

If not, with post op rehabilitation can understand Leutwiler situation.

We haven't had any update recently on Ben Gladwin. No mention of how his contract discussions have progressed or if he's still going to be here next week.

I'm accepting that the team kicking off v Charlton is going to be more or less the same as the one that finished last season. I think Downing will start on the bench, we'll have another CB trying to force his way in ahead of Lenihan and Mulgrew, and possibly another CF to make up the numbers (likely to be a loan) and then that will be that.

Think Mowbray is going to do his usual routine of taking the younger lads away to Austria to see if any of those can step up, then wait and see who is available later on and if any deals can be done. If we spend close to the £10 million of last summer I'll be amazed.

Doubt there's any serious interest in any of ours at this early stage.

Gladwin contract extended till Xmas, currently injured, again.

Why am I still seeing Smallwood in a rovers kit? The guys needs to go asap. Can't deal with seeing both Evans & Smallwood in the middle some point next season.

Maybe not majority opinion but I'd much rather keep Smallwood in the squad and try to get someone to give us a few quid for Evans.

The fact we might be able to get a few quid for Evans but clearly won't for Smallwood should mean we keep him before Richie.

If that would happen yes. Really can't see anyone coming in for him though.

Raya delayed the op so he didn’t lose his place this season and it’s highly likely Frank Fielding will be signing too

I just get the impression that if we wanted Fielding that he would have signed by now, he was released from Bristol very quickly after the season ended.

Rodwell looking like a potential last minute re-signing unless he gets a better offer after he didn’t turn up for the start of pre-season and not being included in the Austria trip...

No great loss. Not good enough at CB and not got the body (or mental strength) to play CM week in week out anymore.

Not what he’s been saying so I’ve heard, could be wrong but that’s what’s been said

I've heard from people he was at a wedding with recently that he could be coming back. We should be looking to do better.

Not showing up for pre-season and having his holiday then instead? Awful attitude towards fitness and preparation, whether he is going to be here or elsewhere. That settles it for me, I now hope he doesn't sign.

I would withdraw our offer he obviously only wants to be here as a last resort. The worrying thing in that article is that Mowbray talked about his versatility, its almost like he didn't see some of his performances at centre back last season.

Over 300 games in the football league, mostly at the level we're at now.

Played regularly for teams that that have finished above us in most of the past 7 seasons.

A Blackburn lad and Rovers fan to boot, we could certainly do worse.

Who he supports or where he comes from is surely an irrelevance. Jason Lowe came through the academy but we couldnt want him any further from the club. The question should be does he have the quality to improve us and aid our supposed push for a top 6 place. I would say certainly not.
