If we are, according to Waggott, "around the (FFP) threshold....very limited as to what could be done" it does suggest that there's a gap and maybe subject to possible changes a decent signing could happen. But the contradiction comes when Waggott adds "unable" to invest due to FFP rules. 

It would of course depend on the structure of the payments too. £2m paid over the lifespan of a 4yr contract would be more palatable...

You dont have to come in and staunchly defend the club on any point everyone makes. Theres no reason to wait until after the QPR game. If theres a deal that we want all agreed there is no reason to drag it out. Id be surprised if we signed anyone, maybe a solitary loan, no money sadly, already been wasted.

Playing an optimistic devil's advocate, we could just be waiting on a better deal

Exactly. If we get that polish lad for 3 million, we could pay that 500,000 a year for 6 years. I read a book about eastern European football,behind the wall, Polish clubs are absolutely broke. I'm talking League of Ireland broke. 

The fact this guy has been called at his age,whilst playing there,is a very,very good sign. Poland have under performed at tournaments, but they qualify like England, with ease.

As Jal would say, whose his agent?

If it's the same as Mowbray's agent then it was probably him who recommended the signing rather than Venky's tbh.

Is it really going to be a platform to come back to Championship football playing non league football and battering teams 7 nil?

The 7-0 battering was at home to Ebbsfleet United who have same number of points as Chorley at the bottom and had a player sent off after 20 minutes not unlike Rovers on Saturday there have been no other 7-0 batterings

Sick of hearing Mowbray and Waggott on the transfer window - IMO, it's all p1ss and wind.

Think at best, there will be a couple of underwhelming loans towards the end of the window, at worse the same loans with a last minute departure of someone like Lenihan or Travis.

As for wages, those who think Chapman is here on relative 'peanuts' need to think again.  I think eyes would be opened if the wages of Dack, Mulgrew, Gallagher, Brereton and Chapman etc were published.  IMO, some of the wage levels mentioned on here are seriously understated.  Have mentioned before, Rovers also pay a whacking 13/14% in employers' NI so every £1million in wages paid to our 'stars' also costs almost another £140k!!!

well you asked about this loan deal that was close and I gave you what Mowbray actually said. That's all. No defend the club just stating what was said. 

no money? you don't know this. Just another guess from you. Rovers are putting bids whether loan or permanent ones. 

I'm sure Rovers will do a deal if its right for the club. We have been link to some players in Portugal. Maybe Mowbray will watch a game or 2 over the coming weekend.

Why? 

 

Could have had him last summer for virtually nothing,  but Tony and Tesco came across as knobs in the meeting......he signed a new deal a few months ago and was made club captain....Probably be a decent fee required now., good young midfielder schooled at Utd

I think Newcastle could be in.

I don't see Bruce signing any midfielder like Whiteman cos of his options already at the Club. Shevley, Hayden, Longstaff brothers. 

Is he any better than them?

Potentially better than all of them.  Plus Bruce inherited all of them.  I know for a fact that Newcastle are interested.

As long as you don't see it though eh?😂

Looking like we could be close to signing the Croatian centre defender from Rio Ave Toni Borevkovic.

Does anybody know much about him?

you like a dig don't you? 

Better than those 4? not for me. Still in league 1. 

Wait for him to sign here, then we see. ;)

No chaddy, you just always dismiss people with your superiority complex. You generally don't know what you are talking about, but there's many on this site who do.

Seems a slightly odd decision to sign a new contract at a League One club after attracting Championship interest he thought he was good enough to turn down. Allows Donny to price him out of a move. Unless they had an understanding or clause that lets him move for a fair fee.

Comfortably more than an Indian poultry company paid for a Premier League football club...

I’m all for a bit of Walker Trust bashing but in 1996 the world record transfer fee was £15m (Shearer). In 2006 it was £43m (Schevchenko). In 2016 is was about £100m (Pogba).

They just didn’t care was the problem.

It isnt a guess, Mowbray has said numerous times that we dont have much money to play with, that we are miles away from peoples asking prices, and Waggott said we are on the FFP limit.

I hope you are right and I can expect a series of players bought to fix problem positions but I suspect that it will be one loan max, if that.

Very good payrise and given captaincy. Very young to be a captain

Hopefully we go back with an improved offer.

 

According to the article it sounds like they have turned in down before Tony has made it :) 

Saw another report that Poznan is selling another player to Russia, suggesting they won't be desperate to sell Jozwiak.
