Am I imagining weeks ago reading that Celtic could be an option for Bell? Tierney > Arsenal, Cunningham > Rovers, Bell > Celtic? Fing hope so...!

I would say you imagined that. Arsenal got Tierney cheap at £25 million and even though I am not convinced by Lennon, that would be an especially atrocious signing for them.

Exactly. Won't happen. It's last minute agent whoring, if he'd prioritised the defence we'd have better than we currently have in by now. 

If he manages to get Cunningham and Hanley in it won't bother me when he did the business

Bell would probably get by in the SPL, but can you imagine him in the Champions League? I actually want this transfer to happen just so I can see this.

Ya, true, especially with a team attacking 85% or more of the time. It would take the pressure off the weakest part of his game, defending. 

Imagine him going from that to marking Messi in a Champions league game.

I agree to an extent. It's panic buying if he does get them in but I'll take that as it means he will have realised where the issues are. Finally. However my initial point still stands, it ain't happening.

Panic buying or holding out for the right targets? Can be spun either way. Especially as we were linked with Hanley earlier in the window. 

I hope you are wrong!

The Last win that Tyler Magloire played in for Rovers was on 12th March. The last win that Charlie Mulgrew played in for Rovers was 1st January.

The last time Tyler Magloire played and we kept a clean sheet was 12th March. The last time Charlie Mulgrew played and we kept a clean sheet was 6th October.

Never mind beating the top teams we aren't beating any teams with Mulgrew in the team.

Frightening stat but backs up everything us mere supporters can see.

Anyone questioning the Hanley signing surprises me.

He emerged from Phil Jones's shadow and became a really solid Championship central defender. Lenihan will be a good defender but he currently needs a solid defender alongside him. 

Charlie will then genuinely be used as a replacement quarter back or goal kicker to be brought on to score vital goals in the 2nd half of games.

Trust me, Hanley will cut out 30% of the goals we shipped last season. 

Just wish we were really getting him.... 

Hanley would be a brilliant signing. A £6 million pound centre half at the prime age, ex club captain, Championship winner last season. Yes please.

My God, great stuff. I was hoping for a new left back and Cunningham is better than I expected us to sign.

Bloody hell... knew it was bad, but they’re some shocking stats!

Literally never heard of Greg Cunningham before he was linked to us, but he sounds like a good signing from what people are saying.

If this does indeed go ahead, at least it's a sign that Mowbray realises we have an issue at left back!

I'm not defending Mulgrew, but this kind of "stat" doesn't tell a real story.

No, probably not. I think Lenihan was only called in after Cunningham moved to Cardiff and he hasn't been in the squad since moving there 

Two good solid country lads though.  I would say they have similarities in their aggression

Sky claim we're after Idrissa Sylla on loan from QPR.

Cunningham would be an excellent signing. I’ll believe it when I see it. Him and a decent CB today and we’ll have gone from an average window to a very good one. That’s how crucial the next few hours are.

If there was a stat that showed how many yards away he was from an attacker when he tapped in or headed in unmarked, that would tell the real story.

Did he not sign for someone else in January on a permanent deal?
