Not Rovers related but interesting to see what other clubs, with whom we are competing, are doing this transfer window. It was sent to me by a friend who is a long time Forest fan. 

Tugascout, interesting website name. I mean, I would, if it'd get one of them to spot a beast of a CB for us. Just hope I wouldn't then have to do TM and Waggot too.

Given the scandals about youth coaches touching kids, perhaps this is not the best website name.

So basically trying to emulate Wolves success with the Portugese lot? For what it's worth the Primeira league is pretty damn awful too bar the top few teams and diving is ridiculous.

Well that's incredibly self deprecating given Dack and Graham both scored 15 goals in the Championship last season.

 

Though we'll probably sell them both to bolster the midfield before long.

So you agree ... Spending 5m on a striker that wouldn't really improve us isn't at good return ???

That’s because most people use both pros and cons to analyse a scenario, and for all the arguments behind lack of defensive recruits - he’s pretty much turned the Rao’s and Coyles mess around to a position where playoffs look like the expectation!

Balance is great mate :) 

If you're expecting the playoffs then who is unbalanced?

Can only think of the playoffs if we sign at least 4 good uns in the positions we need to fill.

This isn’t me setting the expectation lads, it’s the club.

Its an expectation that you've embraced above! You've raised it in opposition to what I consider a more realistic appraisal.

You can't now just stand aside and say "this is what the club thinks, not me".

You've played a stinker there imo!

However, there is a caveat. Its whether TM can pull 4 rabbits out of a hat. All I can say at the minute is that I'm not hopeful from what's happened so far and its Brentford who look more likely to secure a playoff place than Rovers. They seem to be hijacking our targets!

I can post what I like.

You highlighted problems and suggested the manager lives a charmed life. As I said originally - balance is great mate! 

The fact it’s the club showing that expectation and aspiration means that it’s not my opinion either - the reality is TM and co have done well, even if a few with seriously short memories cannot accept that.

Love coming in here to see the Daily Bicker each day. 

On Gallagher, if Brentford are chasing him - must mean something right? If they can see potential and value in that signing, then we should be doing what we can to get him in before them. He obviously likes it here and has loads of mates from his time here before.

That said, if it will be using up money we could be using on a GK and CB, id be walking away.

Seen a lot of folk saying this.

Whether we sign Gallagher or not, I get the feeling that we won't be using that money on a GK and CH, when or more likely if those deals happen I would put good money on them being a free & a loan.

Funny how some who were critical of us chasing Gallagher "because there must be something wrong if nobody else is interested" are quite today. 

It sounds like we are in the driving seat insofar as this is where he wants to come. Hopefully sorted today or tomorrow and then we can focus on getting a keeper and centre half! 

I must say though, Im pretty sure our defence on the first day will be the new keeper, Nyambe or Bennet, Lenihan, Mulgrew or Williams and Bell. We may get someone in, but I don't think Mowbray will put them ahead of Williams or Mulgrew at this stage. Not his MO. Hopefully Williams continues with his centre half displays and Mulgrew ups his game dramatically.

It was pretty obvious what you were stating. Your point as I took it was that there has to have been considerable progress made by the manager since he took over because the clubs aim this season is to get in the top 6 and when Coyle left us that March we were a million miles from that expectation.

Of course you can, who'd have it any other way?

To what matters----if the club's position is officially that the aim this season is the playoffs then it had better get cracking and find the missing players capable of achieving that hadn't it?

Talk is cheap and time is precious, thus far the off season's activities are not matching the rhetoric. Would you agree?

Well, I wasn't critical of us chasing Gallagher so any who were can speak for themselves.. But how seriously are we chasing him? Several reports say he wants to come to us but its looking like Brentford will nab him.

Chasing and catching are two different things.

Finally, if that's our defence on the first day. and stays that way, our chances of the playoffs are derisory. And if Graham gets injured they're even worse than that!

To tell you the truth I am not bothered if they are free or loans as long as they do their jobs

IF IF...what if we do sign the players we want?
