Got a horrible feeling it could be Jason Steele. Played under Mowbray at Boro.

Everyone has their limits.

If Mowbray signs Steele then that’s any hope gone.

Gk deal being kept very underground, won’t be a link to this one, first we will know about it is when pictures are put up by the club. Even my source isn’t being told a definite name. 

I hope this keeper is worthy of the suspense and intrigue you've created.

An ex-Rover as well. Still under 30 though, so, hopefully not.

Agreed. Steele is crap. The end.

I’d suggest that if they’re keeping it so quiet it’s because there’s a risk of losing them. Which means they’re in demand!

Wonder what Eldin Jakupovic is up too? Leicester 3 rd choice! Thought he was decent at hull myself.

Mentioned this lad before, would be a great trialist: Heinz Lindner, plenty of Austria caps and on a free, good age of 27 and 6ft 2. 

Decent shot stopper, nicknamed the wall at Grasshoppers. Sign him up Tony!

I imagine  most messageboards up and down the country resemble the moaning/frustration on here tbf. I can't be arsed looking but will Burnley be happy signing just Pieters and Rodriguez? I very much doubt it. Preston with losing arguably their best player and only signing Bauer.

There are clubs, a lot of them who have done a lot less business than us, at least we haven't lost anyone of note either.

IF Mowbray doesn't sign a CB and a keeper by the start of the season he loses pretty much all credibility for me, but hopefully it won't come to that. I point blank refuse to believe he will do a complete U turn on his comments about defenders coming in. If he didn't bring both in hes either A) lost the plot B) been told he can't because someone is still meddling in transfers and thinks defenders are irrelevant.

 I lost belief in TM during that horrible run last season (not enough to join in with the ridiculous whinging though) If he doesn't sign a keeper and  big, nasty, preferably experienced Centre Back that would be sackable for me.

I'm sure its been mentioned, Martin Olsson appears to be available and he'd be streets ahead of any LB we currently have, maybe worth a punt!

I can tell you my future father-in-law (dingle) is furious about 'signing a busted flush like Pieters when a player with enormous potential like Bidwell was available'.

He's happy with Rodriguez, 'but for over £10m? FFS.'

In other words, yeah, all fans do this.

Reading the article on SG in the Telegraph this morning sums them up.

’According to rumours in the national press’. They seemingly have literally no contacts within the club these days. Poor stuff from the local paper.

...and to think there was praise for the LT on here recently. It's garbage.

With some people on here you might as well just hand them the shovel and get it over with.

If I don't come on for a while and then try to catch up in this thread, it's basically moan after moan from the same posters who post the same moans over and over again. There is no debating that. 

They are entitled to their opinions and I am entitles to mine. 

You are basically just after doing what you are critisicing me for doing...you do realise that 

Moaning with good reason. Not like your 'head in the sand' policy

Moaning because you want better: negative.

Accepting mediocrity and regression: positive.

I'm a bit shocked that K-Hod hasn't stepped in to sort out this little circle jerk of mutual misery. (well, when I say shocked...……….)

It's a good assumption 😉😊

Add in Samuel and Nuttal and its moves to 6-1 ☹️ 

Not saying that this is the case, but our preference to sign strikers /midfielders, when our DF is absolute bobbins, just makes me think it is possible 'others' impact our transfer policy. 

A scouting system does not take this long to reap rewards 

There'll just be a lot of in game and game to game rotating, shifting about and subbing I think.

We really just need a goal keeper. Then I think we would be set to challenge.

That means that Raya was solely to blame for the Goals Against Column.

He wasn't. we emphatically do not "just" need a gk.

Didn't Mowbray drop him for Raya?

If he brings him back after selling Raya, he deserves to be sacked on the spot.

I’ve just spent the last 30 minutes listening to the IFollow interviews of Johnson, Downing and White.

If these guys play as well as they talk then we’re in for some happy times ahead.

If you want to de stress from all the transfer speculation then give them a listen. Very interesting insights into how Tony Mowbray manages, his football philosophy, his standing in the game and his target for the season.

I know sometimes interviews are misleading and footballers aren’t renowned for their public speaking but these three are a credit to themselves and can be real assets this season.
