Reading Mowbrays comments about looking at players whose valuations at start of window were a lot higher than now , part of me hoping its is Jake Cooper he's is talking about ... I don't think I've see him linked with a single club all summer and I wonder if that's because the valuation was sky high and now it's more realistic

What's the obsession?? Genuine question. Can't say I watch Millwall regularly but as you say yourself he hasn't been linked with anyone so is he that good?? He's really tall, but so is Adarabioyo and yet people seem to be a bit negative on him already. Yet Cooper gets mentioned every day like he's the best defender in the league

I've seen him play 5-6 times and been impressed every time, he's aggressive he wins everything in the air and so dangerous from from set pieces and a thunderbolt of a left foot but he young and he's raw and he got a lot to Improve on .. He sometimes wanders into areas of the pitch you don't really want to see c/b in and If he can work on his distribution a £5m gamble the today could easily become a £20m player for somebody in the future 

 But as you say apart from an off the cuff remak from Mowbray there has been no evidence of us or anybody else being interested whatsoever

Feeling good today!  Just savouring a Sauvignon Blanc from The Eisele Vineyard which was given as a 'thank you' present - reds don't always rule!

Hardly worth mentioning as it's still Sav Blanc

Went to buy my budding 9 year old football star a new pair of boots, ‚Äúoh I‚Äôll check the Copa Mundials‚ÄĚI thought,¬†needless to say we wait on those.

My first pair came with spare studs and a handful of small nails, but you had to have your own hammer. A skill at self stitching your forehead was useful with an externally laced ball that soaked in water and gained weight. Good old days? fek that.

One of the names I have heard (from a journo and somebody in the sport) is not on your list because his contract expires in 2021. I don't think we have a chance of signing him due to his reputation and credentials. He currently plays in 2. Bundesliga after relegation last season and looking at his data on Transfermarkt his market value is huge. He's got mixed nationality and played up until this year in the German U21 team and has been a nailed on 1st teamer for his side.

If we pulled off that signing it would be an amazing coup. But cannot see it happening myself. 

I find it a bit curious that our targets for CB range from 'oh my god' expensive to Bormuth, a barely-present in his team whose contract is running down and doesn't sound any great shakes.

Still, I don't care as long as whoever we do get is the right player.

What on earth has he done to warrant that value?

When I looked over the transfer dealings in the Championship last week - and I think I only got as far as Millwall - I noticed three very young (21ish) CBs had changed hands for prices ranging from I think it was 6 million to 12 million. No idea what any of them did to earn those values either. Market is batshit.

Have highlighted the players who aren't actually wingers.

Would feel a heck of a lot more comfortable with actual pacey wingers on board. Prefer not to make do.

It's irrelevant whether they are wingers. They play on our flanks. We are not short of pace on our flanks, not even remotely.

If we want traditional wingers instead, we are going to have a heck of a lot of talent rotting on the bench.

Ability to cross the ball?

Wasn't the point he was making, he was saying we don't have pace there. We have it more than we have any other attribute in any other area of the squad.

We don't look like we intend to play a crossing game anyway.

Downing and JRC cross extremely well.

Well at this stage it would be crazy to drop the club captain for a guy we signed on loan 2 days before the game. 

Whatever about Mulgrew, it would not be a good idea to have Lenihan playing with a new partner he barely knows. Even if Adarabioyo is a better player than Mulgrew. 

It isn't FIFA 19 lads.....

What would be your new position if Mowbray did play Lenihan and Tosin for the Charlton game? Maverick move or something more... positive?

It’s good that we have finally brought in an out and out defender but Mowbray’s comments about him having to work his way into the side over several weeks are so typical that he is becoming a bit of a cliché.

On that basis, one would expect that none of the new signings will start on Saturday and the likes of Johnson and Downing will be introduced to replace of Evans and Bell. Shame for our younger lads who broke into the side at the end of last season then. Let’s see if Buckley and/or Butterworth get any game time this season then. Sadly, the only way they will get in will be cup games or dead rubbers if/when we end up safe and not in the play-off mix.

It also begs the question though, why isn’t Mowbray bringing in players who can start for Rovers rather than players who he doesn’t know whether they will actually be good enough or not. Having identified a need to upgrade he is then saying to his current League One crop: go on lads, you’ve got another chance. The new lads then have to play Tony’s Rotation Game.

Those quotes basically say to me that Mowbray and recruitment have been doing buggar all but waiting for Adarabioyo to sign for 3 weeks.

"Now he has signed we go again" (or words to that nature)

That cant be true... No wonder we get hardly any of our/the top rated targets.

I very very much doubt this is an accurate representation of what actually happened.

Love this guy. 

Best manager we've had in a long while. 

This is beyond dispute but since Big Sam the hurdle has been knee high to a cricket with at least two - Kean outstandingly, but also Coyle - whom the club would have been massively improved if they had never been anywhere near Ewood or Brockhall and been replaced by a stuffed Rover the Dog doll.

Hmmmm... Sure Kenny Dalglish (1992) and Greame Souness (2001) would agree with you ūüßź... both of whom actually won us promotion... and then a pretty significant trophy after that...

And... Since Mark Hughes. So that's Paul Ince, Sam Allardyce, Steve Kean, Henning Berg, Michael Appleton, Gary¬†Bowyer, Paul Labert, Owen Coyle. High praise indeed. ūüĎÄ

Did you actually just say Tony Mowbray is a better manager than Dalglish, Souness and Allardyce. You actually did.

2 of what you're drinking! 

Ince and Allardyce only managed us in the Premier League.

Dalglish and Souness predate Hughes.

So no he didn't say that. You misread him.

Hanley is the man!

If he is. He will need to force his way into contention which if he is hungry (not thirsty) enough will make him an extremely useful addition.

This is pointing towards Magloire going out on loan.
