Sure he has but I haven’t seen anything from unleaded- certainly not recently. Who did he break?

Can't remember. It's just stuck in my head once thinking "he was right".

Why didn’t we say no?

Because Mulgrew had the option to return within the deal with Wigan but had to make the decision on the date which he did. 
If Charlie had stayed at Wigan he wouldn’t have been able to move for free between now and the end of the season. MLS and Aus can sign frees anytime and we would love to release him on a free. 
He made the right decision for him, you can’t deny him that.

Having watched lots of both of them this season. Ferguson going to palace for 11 million and even worse Robinson to AC Milan for 10 million I’d genuinely be disappointed if we got less than 15 million for Nyambe. He’s comfortably the same ability wise; if not better.

Fair enough, if we are talking going years back, don’t think I was a member then

There is no doubt Dack's injury has buggered up the financial planning. The objective was to flog him this summer if we didn't get promoted and now that isn't going to happen.

Naturally at Rovers there is no Plan B.

It is laughable a team in the top half of the championship with aspirations of promotion don't have a structure in place to deal with transfers. Instead we have Tony who doesn't like negotiating.

The mind boggles.

Birmingham signing Hogan and Enobokhare. Couple of potentially season changing additions if used correctly. Thought they were in FFP bother?

Wouldn’t be disappointed with Hogan, but that Enobokhare is shite. I understand what you’re saying though. Expecting lots of last minute deals like this that have probably rumbled on for weeks without coverage.

Fair enough. I thought Rovers had to make the request to terminate the loan and he had leant on Rovers to do so.

Our transfer business must be amongst the most amateur in the EFL, let alone the Championship.

Hogan staying fit is a big gamble.

Our transfer business has been dreadful. Essentially we gambled the Dack money we thought we had at any time on Brereton and Gallagher and so far that’s been a terrible decision.
We are extremely lucky we have managed to bring through youngsters.
The next big sale will be one of Travis, Nyambe, JRC and Buckley. Let’s hope we can use their money wisely in advance to ensure we get promoted the year we sell the asset.

Yeah, not saying they are top drawer signings but Birmingham have struggled for goals all season so are doing something to try and address it with a couple of players who have been around the block in this League

Birmingham are in a FFP whole so have just thrown the lot at it knowing there’s trouble coming ahead regardless. 
 

FFP is the absolute worst thing that could have happened for a club in our position.

Don’t always get names, in fact it’s pretty rare, do get told of deals being close etc, which is then given likewise by the club. Names are kept secret for a reason 

Tell me this please, are defenders coming?

I'd be happier if we kept him. How will we ever be promoted?

I thought we were building.

I would beg to differ.

IMO, has improved but still technically poor with a limited football brain.

Really?

If that was the case, why did he reportedly take a wage cut?  If you are in demand, you call the tunes on your contract.

Because the other clubs were Preston, Wigan, can't remember the others, but there was plenty of interest. Am only stating what actually happened.

Yes, I think Armstrong is worth £7 million indeed. I certainly wouldn't sell him for any less anyway.

What a time to be alive (and a Rovers fan).

On the contrary I think Birmingham know the rules aren't worth the paper they are written on. Sheffield Wednesday are taking them to the cleaners too.

We will see - some bloody gamble is that.

It really is (though I think the owners may consider it a convenient excuse). Rule changes always seem to come at the wrong times for us. Like how the Champions League used to only be for Champions. Until pretty much right after we stopped finishing top 4. We would have had another what, 2 CL campaigns if it had been top 4 back then?

Not really. The only club to have received anything more than a soft embargo at this level was Birmingham. It took them 18 months to decide on a punishment and when they finally got round to it they knocked 9 points off them when they were sat comfortably in mid-table, it made next to no impact to their season and the slate was wiped clean and past crimes erased.

No side chasing promotion or fighting relegation has had any sort of sanction.

Meanwhile Villa, Bournemouth, QPR, Leicester and Wolves have walked all over the rules, won the ultimate prize of promotion and have had nothing but a nominal fine.

I'd say it is a gamble entirely worth taking.

Unleaded has a long history of calling transfers ahead of any local journalist. I can’t name them off the top of my head, but we are talking years of heads ups on here. 

Pretty sure Formica was one.
