still 2 weeks before pre season starts

Don't talk nonsense.

Mowbray says his priority is a goalie, he has a pot of money and, presumably, a list of options.  There is absolutely no excuse.  So Mowbray, IMO, fiddles as Rome burns.  Wont make any other signings and nothing seems to be moving.  To me, it doesn't add up.

i'm not having it Mowbrays sat there and told a player we have a pot of money.

Why not? Looks like about 5 million to me.,

I'm sorry. You did just say that GK, LB then CM is the order of priority? Not CB?

We're fucked.

Bet he thinks he's getting Tosin back on loan.

Well surely it's an invitation to both player and agent to ask for top dollar.

I think he will loan a CB, Wharton and Lenihan...and perhaps Del If we are desperate

Not really, he said once theyve sorted those 2 if they have 2m left over they are putting a bid in. It couldnt be any clearer.

Knowing Mowbray he probably followed it up with 'but if you can get yourself sorted somewhere first you do so son'

Tbf I don't think that follows. His agent knows we are going to need about 2 million for the fee, so it won't be news to him that we have a bit. All Sparks is saying we have said is that if we still have enough left after the other two (?!?!) priorities, we will put a bid in. It hardly makes us sound minted and in fact makes it sound like 'if we can squeeze you in at the end'.

He really is a fantastic man manager, isn't he?

"We really want you - just not as much as a GK and a LB, so hang fire."

Definitely a bloke I'd want to play for.

I get that but it doesn't make the player feel that wanted either.

It's a non starter now if imo.

You're going off on a tangent again and missing the point. Non of them up to the job but numerous chances aside from Smallwood who was told he didn't have one anymore but didn't have to leave either.

We've needed a pool of defenders for years and we now have a lad of our own who's proven he can hack it a lge or two below. Ideal for a cheap 3rd or 4th choice i'd say. Mowbray to his credit is well known to give people chances sometimes way beyond what he should, he's also been good to the youth.

This one just looks a bit odd taking all that into account. I'd just like to see what he can do, unless of course they are planning on signing a couple of good ones that push Williams further down the pecking order and Mulgrew off the books.

Perhaps he has ripped jeans?

Whiteman update, met Tony last Wednesday....they want him but not before they've bought a goalie and a left back.  Midfield is the 3rd priority. If there is 2m left over we will put a bid in.  We have a pot of money.  Derby are very interested too.  The player wants the championship,  not necessarily Rovers. 2m gets the player.

Must be getting that CB for free I reckon

I wouldn't be surprised. The PL money has exploded in recent years. 

Remember when Rooney getting paid £300k a week was an outrage. Now it's the norm.

Average in EPL is apparently £60000 a week, I read somewhere.

Doesn't surprise me when Asmir Begovic is on 70k and is loaned out

Actually, I can't speak for his previous clubs, but Northampton have made it clear they absolutely do want to take him in League One.

Spoke to my mate yesterday and he said their manager has been on to Wharton asking if he wants to go back and letting him know he’s definitely wanted there. At a push I could even see Tony trying to do a swap for him and Goode if he’s really not in his long term plans...

Mercer, we have 2 weeks before Pre season starts, we will be looking for what we want. If takes a couple of weeks to sort it then so be it. 

Lets say we want the Charlton keeper but Charlton ongoing problem with their ownership could be why we have got an answer yet for an example. 

Nothing seems to be moving? or things are moving but we just don't know the full or any details

Honestly don’t know, but imagine if you were a pro footballer you’d want to play somewhere you were wanted and were going to get a fair crack of the whip, so guess we’ll have to wait and see!

I think his quote was telling.  Said to me he was telling Mowbray he's staying and fighting for a start

I think you need to look at it from a business point of view here...a bit like a business needing a yardsman, an ops manager  and they'd really like to afford the star salesman if they can afford him...they already have a few average ones.  They desperately need the yardsman and ops manager....

If Mowbray was choosing another CM ahead of him then I think the player would be affronted.  From what I know he would see joining us a real big move,  from young we would have been a proler big club in the premier league in his eyes and local.

If you had to give it a percentage of happening what would you say?

Reading your posts I would go 70% likely. 

It's nice to read a post from somebody with inside knowledge. Cheers!

Thats  not fair....😀 they've done Bell I believe so maybe the LB is sorted....i thought Cunningham was coming but looks like Harris wants a look at him or I think that would  be done by now. 

I don't know but I get the feeling if we truly want the player then we are in the driving seat.  2 meetings in 12 months suggests something,  but I'm not putting my head on the block on here, Id get pelters for sure....:brfcsmilie:
