I really don't get this element of Mowbray's management.

He treats older players like they need to be protected and then drops bombs on younger players. Surely it should be the other way round

Easier to bully young lads who are desperate to get their career going. They'll put up with the bullshit as they don't usually have anywhere else to turn

Could literally splice Mulgrew's name in there and it would be just as accurate! But of course those players never get named. Only the youngsters. 

Well if he goes after a respected member of the squad and the player gets the hump it could influence others in the squad and you lose the dressing room and everything from then is a sinking ship disaster with very few helping bail water of fix the hull. Flip side is a youngster who has no real relationship with the squad as a whole getting the hump wont end up doing much throughout the squad. Plus a youngster will be more willing to take on advice/criticism than and older head who will have countless options elsewhere in his mind

At this stage, I agree. But we'll be back here next summer putting the same effort into replacing all these loans, and not have any players to trade on for profit.

Ya, but we will worry about that then :)

It's typical Mowbray nonsense. Why wait until this afternoon just because the first team are training. Surely he could trust Lowe and Venus to take the training and he could have been looking for defenders from early morning.

I'm beginning to think he is a bit of a control freak borne out of his autonomy.

I’d never heard of Cunningham till this week but people seem to rate him 

Some awful quotes from Mowbray this morning through, this is a bit of a kicking for Tyler 

 

With total respect to Charlie Mulgrew at this moment in his career we are not going to beat the top teams in the league with Charlie in our team

Are we signing Ramos? Bloody loves a card.

Think I remember Cunningham playing for Cardiff but don't know too much about him. Seems an obvious improvement on Bell... Can anyone shed any light on him, can he actually defend? 

Warnock said he is one of the best left sided players in the championship. Signed for 4 million last year, so I'd hope he is an improvement on Bell!

Cunningham is a very decent signing, hopefully with an option to buy. Hanley is not really what I was hoping for but at this point I’ll take anything. That said knowing us we will get no one

Looking for them 😂 I just have an image of him outside in the carpark looking under cars for defenders. Possibly with a set of binoculars hanging around his neck.

Praying that Cunningham happens, the starting defense is now: Cunningham, Lenihan, Tosin(in a week or whatever) and Nyambe . Compare that to Bell, Lenihan, Mulgrew and Bennett. It is day and night

About 1 every 5 appearances looking at that - not all that bad. Only ever had a second booking once too - so knows how to keep cool.

Cunningham was class. The Cardiff move just didn't work out. Great signing.

Played just 7 times in the past 20 months. Is he injured?

Doesn't matter who we sign today, they won't play until October 

Yep, they'll be 'On the grass snd getting up to speed' for weeks.

He is right, but he could be saying the same about a few-er more experienced players!

Exactly!

According to what ive read from Cardiff fans - just stuck behind an even better LB. Never really been given a chance.

From what I read he was second choice at Cardiff so playing time was limited.

Preston fans say he was Mr. Consistent and the best defender they have had in the last few years. He was bought for 4-mill so I can almost guarantee he will be a big upgrade over Bell

Hope Mowbray doesn’t think that Cunningham covers both LB and CB, because he doesn’t.

With total respect to Tyler Magloire at this moment in his career we are not going to beat the top teams in the league with Tyler in our team

 An appalling and very insensitive statement by Mowbray. It might be his private thoughts but he should not be saying that about a young player in public.

What is he thinking of, and what about the feelings of Magliore?

Mowbray should get a bollocking from his boss about that - except he doesn't have one
