Mowbray’s Future

Recommended Posts

Mowbray's been able to spend a few quid but also considerably increase the 'book value' of the squad as well at the same time.  Bowyer was the only other whose done that so hopefully the ownership takes it on board.

Steady manager - steady spend = decent team, squad value and future transfer revenue on a continuous basis.

Ultimate aim a squad strong enough to challenge for promotion but able to withstand and replace the odd large sale now and again.

I know I wasn't alone in thinking that it was crazy how our managers had to fly over and bend the knee for regular meetings when contact via phone/email etc is more practical and is usually more efficient in getting answers. Started with snakey shit Kean I believe... but now even I get suspicious when they don't go over!

Cards and budget close to his chest, even if it's the square root of bugger all, is always welcomed by me.

 

I think once a year would be fine, maybe during the summer. It's the short notice change of plan here that I find odd

Ya, up to 2-3 weeks ago the word was that the two of them would be heading over. My suspicioun and worry is the Raos canceled it because they didn't have the time, read its not one of their top priorities. 

I'm almost certain that the reason it now isn't happening is because the owners have put it off or re-arranged. No way would Waggott or Mowbray dare to cancel an arranged appointment with the owners.

The concern for me is whether the cancellation or re-scheduling is simply a case of making things more convenient, or even trusting the Rovers lot to get on with it alone, or whether it is something more worrying e.g. they can't be bothered with Rovers business right now or are starting to fall silent as they have in the past.

Even if they do trust the Rovers lot, I find the cancellation odd. This meeting was being mooted since the summer and as I mentioned already, up to a fortnight ago if not last week we were being told it was going ahead. 

Surely there should be a reason given

Would be odd timing to fall silent after their backing the last season or so. I am clinging to the hope that it is just that something came up that was considered slighlty more important or one of them has figured out how to use that sqwype thingie ont interweb.

I am picturing Waggot , Mowbray and the 3 Raos in a WhatsApp group. Balaji sending smutty videos completely unrelated to what is being discussed.

A postponed meeting doesn't cause an issue for concern at all. At the end of the day if it's not reasonably practical for both sides there is no reason why, in the modern age, communication can't be done online.

We aren't in any urgent need for a face to face meeting anyway. We are doing fine.

It could be that the meeting is cancelled because no negotiation or justification is needed for TM's demands.

Ie: He's asked for a budget and they've just signed it off.

Remembered it seemed in the summer that TM had to calm them down in ters of throwing money at it. Maybe seeing that attitude from TM has made them lower their demands of him?

I am happy enough to go along with that narrative :)

Marginal gains could be seen as there's nowt in the pot in Jan aside from a few coppers to tweak in house depts.

IF that were to be true then it would make the Brereton signing mind-blowingly baffling. Let’s hope they’re just a bit tied up and have signed off on the budget already.

Good to read.

Well, not literally. The LET is grammatically all over the place!

Literally, or literarily? :D

Conspiracy theorists or scaremongering?

Could be anything from asking for more funds and TM producing one of his dossiers in support of more funds for a particular player, Venkys postponing given they've lost 50% of the share price since April and have big business to focus upon to Balaji throwing a bash instead

Who cares?

The manger is working wonders on the playing side, the least amount of contact he has with those mugs in Pune the better as far as I'm concerned, they're poison. 

Out of sight out of mind.

True. As long as they keep writing the cheques for Tony, that's the beginning and end of the input needed from them.
