Rovers have bids in for players Matty. I have no names just that we have bids in. Source wont say any more. 

I'm pleased that there is no leaks from us. Its good then we can hopefully get our targets in. 

Mowbray said yesterday we wanted a centre back for money in if you look carefully at his words. I hope that is big money buy like Cooper from Millwall. Think he is just what we need next to Lenihan. 

 

I hope you are right with Cooper, Chaddy but somehow we know now that any bids we make are probably £1-£2million at best. I cant see Millwall falling over themselves to accept that kind of money for one of their best players at this late stage. To me, if that was going to get done then it would have happened by now. But what do I know ????

But Mowbray has previously talked about other sides not selling until they have sorted out a replacement, yet he has let Raya go without a replacement even being close.

maybe we did have a replacement line up when Raya leave but fall through like so many does these days due to number of different reasons. Like I said previous we did have a foreign keeper line up but that deal doesn't end up getting done. We have the Martinez name but a deal with Arsenal couldn't be reach either. 

So we ended up with Walton it appears who wasn't our 1st choice but is coming here. Not sure its much of improvement on Raya to be honest but the 1875 podcast suggest Walton would be a good replacement using their stats they did. Have you watch the 1875 podcast on the goalkeeper area?

That's probably what Bolton fans thought,they really are on the precipice right now.

My view on Venkys?...we're going nowhere with them and we are truly fecked without 'em.

Great isn't it.

I wish some fans would just read and DIGEST the last part of your sentence !

I think it is going to take a bid around 5 or 6 million pounds to get at least. If we cant get him Then I would look at Kyle Bartley at WBA

No mate, the CLUB have a plan to buy and develop young players to sell (strategically and if necessary) in order to balance the books whilst progressing towards promotion. - Evidenced over the last 12 months when they’ve spoken about it, Maddison from Norwich and selling ‘a Dack’ etc.

I simply used the 5 players mentioned and priced them at £10m -15m based on their age and potential and stated the £50-75m potential return.

But you keep slinging those insults pal. 

Not sure why it's so hard for people to grasp this was this not a similar model we employed for years in the prem.

Most fans I talk to realise we won’t ever particularly go anywhere with them (does League 1 count?), but yes we are totally reliant on them.

Been some 9 years, hasn’t it?

This isn’t good , I can only assume that things really haven’t went to plan. Certainly Walton is one that’s just been worked on very recently and to my belief after our number one target became non viable. Martínez was the name I was given, loan to buy. Was progressing nicely but went quiet, I can only assume it hit a roadblock that wasn’t sortable. Not at all pleased with Walton and Eastwood if that’s what it turns out to be 

So no chance of Martinez now then?

We shouldn't have sold Raya until a replacement had been sorted, now everyone knows we are desperate for a keeper so obviously the price goes up to a price we cannot appear to afford leaving us chasing after cheap second rate options.

I know most on here won’t agree, probably not bothered unless we’re spending millions on new players, but the young talent Rovers are bringing on is excellent, not only that but signing them on long contracts as young Travis has just done.

This latest bunch, Buckley, Butterworth, Travis, Magloire etc is great news for Rovers fans and proving that the money invested in the academy is working.

We are going to have to get used to the idea of bringing these youngsters through and buying one or two experienced ones as well,as the way forward, and if we have to cash in now and again,so be it, because I’ll tell you now Buckley will end up with one of the big boys for a lot of dosh.

I wonder why the Martinez deal didn't work out? Surely down to wages. The Forster link was never going to happen. I read the other day he is on £70,000 a week. Unless Southampton were to pay him something like 2 years of his 4 year deal and for him to take a payout and come here, that was never a runner. All very unrealistic scenarios. 

The issue I have now is that I think we needed a big, vocal and experienced keeper. Walton is big, not sure if he is vocal but I would have preferred someone more experienced. If we aren't going to sign a vocal keeper who can organise things, I don't see how it is an improvement on Raya and the defense in general. 

It's just even psychologically, I think an experienced keeper would help us. I would take Carson now in a heart beat. I would also even take Hart to be honest.

Seems like 50% of the forum has "sources" at the club these days so on the surface there's more leaks than ever! Or more people talking shit than ever. Might be that one actually.

When are the two lads getting announced today then? A further delay surely wouldn’t be good news.

Hoping Walton is a loan to buy otherwise it’s very short sighted by the club. Our scouting department really does leave a lot to be desired though let’s be honest. Be nice to see some fruits of its labour soon.

Have you seen our debt, well over 100 mil, they invest every month just to keep us going, have  you been keeping up with Bolton, must be heartbreaking for their fans, not sure what you mean saying they don’t invest, doesn’t matter how much people hate the owners, the truth is we need them more than they need us, sometimes it’s better the devil you know.

Their name is over the door the buck stops with them, more so if as some believe the debt is secured against their assets in India so by my reckoning it's sell for what you can get back, liquidate ( which would open up all sorts of issues for them publically )  or keep the wheels turning. Thankfully they seem able to do that and even to the point of it seems to suit their accounting process.

Think we need to step away from the generosity angle though as yet again i'll remind everyone of what was happening in the last year of Bowyers tenure and beyond.

Without meaning to have a go at Chaddy, he has form for believing people on Twitter with very spurious credentials. So his source isn't one I'm going to pay any attention to unless it starts coming up with info that actually pans out.

(And no Chaddy, I'm not saying you're using a Twitter source this time, just that I think you're a lot happier to accept rumours at face value than I am)

Walton and Adarabioyo set to sign today.

We will then look at what is left within the budget and see what we can get with the remaining budget with an experienced goalkeeper being the key and then a centre back if the budget stretches that far.

Walton must be plan 'B'. He wasn't on the radar a few weeks ago. I think he is just contingency in case the number one target eventually falls through, which seems possible as it's been dragging on so long.

Explains why the Walton deal is possibly only a loan. He might not be needed.

Priorities seem upside down to me so far. Should have been CB at all costs then see how far the budget stretches to other areas.

Bit of a daft comment. 

Anyone would want good players, regardless of where they come from, surely? If they’re academy products, even better, saves on the transfer fees!

I believe the 'roadblock' was signing Gallagher. It used up budget that was earmarked for a GK.

Mowbray expected to get the green light from Venky's for both signings but that hasn't materialised so far. Not saying it won't eventually

I admire your optimism Chaddy but shopping at B&M for a keeper having had to sell the previous one to finance the Gallagher deal doesn't cry out to me that we have £6m left to spend  but then again ………...the Brereton surprise last year !!!!!
