Due to a lack of respect on here- as above post- , I’m not for giving names anymore however my record speaks for itself, beat the media to a whole list of names, who would then publish it as breaking the next day. 
you will need to get your names off davie whoever that was previously 

some folk spoil it for everyone 

Fair enough.. spoil the names after the deadline... we wont sign anyone anyway.

Some were saying Tony is useless at negotiations. I thought we would've paid £3 million for Armstrong at the time. And Dack and Rothwell were signed for peanuts.

Tony said he was, today!

“I’m not a great negotiator, I like to be honest and tell people what I think things are worth. If I don’t want to do it, I’m not coming back with another price.

But that’s probably naïve”

“I’m not a great negotiator, I like to be honest and tell people what I think things are worth. If I don’t want to do it, I’m not coming back with another price.

“But that’s probably naïve, the world is all about ‘you’ve offered that but we know that you’ve got another two or three offers coming’.

This completely explains all past windows under Mowbray and why he will never, ever get us promoted. What a farce!

Im lost of word. My info earlier was not wrong, the deal between club was 100%, just an issue with the payments as explained. Now, in the last 2 hours, one other Championship-club has come in for the same player. The odd thing - its a bid and not for loan. Did not get specifics but was told that the bid was ridiculosy high. The club consider but rates him highly and would prefer loan.

This is just bad negotioans-tactics. The deal could have been done and officially annunced yesterday if Mowbray was a bit more cynical.

Like TM keeps saying I usually need to calm the owners down when they want to splash the cash .... 

The Recruiting department is still building so meanwhile we sit with a begging bowl and hope X or Y get knocked out of the FA cup ...

Elliot and Jones are young pups ! 
Here’s hoping jRC gets his long overdue chance .. 

 

 

 

Must be the only manager on the planet that turns down the opportunity to spend money...

What a joke. If he refuses to negotiate properly get someone in who can. No wonder we're so poor every transfer window.

Edit: Not to mention - why is Mowbray doing the negotiation, surely it's his job to choose targets and then a more business oriented person's place to negotiate further?

How unprofessional can we sound? A few comments to calm me down.

1) only add depth?!?!? Other than it being a u turn it's also stupid to do when on a limited budget rather than using what you have to improve. 

2) that said I think that translates into I won't get anyone good so I will move the goalposts (which happens a lot here). 

3) the response of integrity is to get the best deal for your employer's Blackburn Rovers in the transfer window 

4) why is he even doing it not someone higher up? Oh I give up - we are so unprofessional and a shambles. For those who say Venkys are doing it right or the current management is doing it properly this interview shows in so many ways that's a load of bull. We might not be the soap opera we were but it's still a circus at Ewood.

"Tony Mowbray says he will continue to be honest in transfer negotiations, even if it may not work in Rovers’ favour."

 

Just indefensible really, what a clown

I don’t have a name, was told that it was being kept as quiet as possible to avoid rivalry, which to me suggests it’s a decent calibre. When I get told that I don’t push for a name as end of the day my mates job is more important that an exclusive. If davie is correct though that deal might have competition now though

That's the key one for me. We should have a team of hard faced negotiators who ain't naive who don't care about being pure

Is our bid loan to buy or just a loan? 

Guess the other club is Hull or Brentford or Forest

Do you get points, goals and results for trying hard, being honest and principled?

Our youngsters are the depth. We need a striker or right winger and a left back to strengthen the starting 11.

Its like deja vu, decent chance at playoffs, team playing well, need some balls from somewhere. These opportunities for the Venkys to make their money back don’t come up very often.

That is just an embarrassing interview from Mowbray. Stick to the grass Tony, we need a director of football.
