I sincerely hope our season doesn't peter out due to our naivety in the transfer market like last January. 

Was it Lenihan who got injured soon after and our season ended in February?

 

This !

Handily placed it is real opportunity to kick on. Any club or its owners that was really serious about trying to get into the top 6 would make some sort of effort. 

I'm convinced these lot are more than happy to sit in the middle of this division.

By spending money we don’t have and bringing a likely breach of FFP?

For fans who doubt every move Mowbray makes in the transfer market, it’s funny how many more transfers you want him to make.

Didn’t the Brockhall lad get grounded after it was mentioned in an interview about the teams leaking?


Remember when someone said they were flying out to Qatar to try and convince a prospective buyer to move forward and posted pics of an airport lounge straight from google to prove it

I think it was someone in Thailand

I think the name was BKKrover or something similar but got found out then disappeared from the site

Hold on, i thought our owners were billionaires eager to invest? In that case we do have the money. 

If the manager's track record on transfers is an issue then change the manager or bring in someone to oversee him and his recruitment. Not signing anyone because the manager has wasted funds previously isn't the way to do it.

Ignore these — what was the guy called that broke into Ewood and provided live updates as he tried to track down the board to give them what for? 

That was Vinjay wasn't it?

If true, expect to see a low cost loan arrive imminently. As with Mulgrew/Cunningham it will be one in one out and we have been waiting to get someone off the wage bill to enable one to come in.

That isn't the case right now though is it. They would dismiss signing anybody out of hand if it was the case. That's happened before.

We aren't talking millions so keep your scaremongering to yourself.

I'll be annoyed with that. We've pissed about and persevered with Bennett in countless positions but he hasn't been given a fair go.  We should be looking to develop our young talent, not demoralise them.

Where's the other claiming we have money and are relaxed about FFP ? 

Changed his tune again I suppose !

I can live with that. Since we are supposedly about to tie someone up on loan for his areas of the pitch, it makes sense to let him out. He simply isn't going to get chances here right now so he is going to waste.

This way, maybe he tears up League One and TM is forced to take him seriously next season.

If it was between him and Brereton being loaned out though, I'd very much have preferred BB went out.

I just cant understand this at all. The song and dance that was made on here and all over his and rovers social media in his return.....never even got a proper sniff.  What is going on?

He never learned the “seriousness of the game”.

Dunno. I think maybe Tony likes the idea of a young, skilful, natural winger careening down the flanks a lot more than he wants to actually take the 'risk' on it? He should have had more chances by now I agree, but it isn't happening so I think he needs to play competitively elsewhere for a bit to try force the issue.

It wouldn't do us much good if some club was willing to pay 15 million for Nyambe. There's no way they would start with that bid, having seen us sell the likes of O'Connell, Cairney and Raya for far less than we should. They would just enter a bid of say 5 million and good ole Tony would say 'Yeh that matches what I think he is worth, and it must be their final offer, let's 

Your entitled to your opinion but you made up the last sentence to suite your opinion.

Yea it’s a weird one, he has looked a bit chubby and disheveled when Iv seen him this year, don’t know if maybe his attitude is holding him back

If you read his wiki page, he's done great wherever he's been since 2016 including here for a while....hattricks,  assists, etc.  Then he joins us on a permanent deal and his career stutters......players who arent fit to lace his boots ahead of him, played on the left when he does come on for 10 mins, no chances, mowbray and his boys club, Tombola every week......

Mowbray out.

Some were saying Tony is useless at negotiations. I thought we would've paid £3 million for Armstrong at the time.

We did. 

The fee was £1.75m rising to £3m with add ons.

What an odd thing to say. Did you think I was pretending that was an actual quote? I didn't 'make it up to suit my opinion', I made it up as a bit of a joke and to add emphasis. The entire thing was opinion, I thought that was a bit bleeding obvious to be honest. I'm amazed I've had to explain any of this.

Yes, but we bought him.  You saying we bought him off boro but because they sold him we shouldn't play him?
