Chaddy first tells us not to worry as pre-season is two weeks away. Then he tells us not to worry because the season start is way off. According to chaddy nothing has happened because everyone is on their holidays.I wonder how long he'll stick to that excuse. I wonder how other clubs have managed to make signings in such circumstances. How for example did our transfer out of Matty Platt get done? The club's policy is 'even better don't say anything'.

Perhaps chaddy can tell us:

if Mowbray now knows his transfer budget

if he believes any players will be signed before pre-season starts

if we have to sell players before we can bring anyone in

It would appear that Mowbray knows his budget if he meeting players and speaking to clubs about players from the info certain posters have posted on here. But the only way we will know if they do an interview with local paper or Rovers in house media. 

Rovers will have staff at the club who can authorised transfers like Cheston if Waggott was away. or Waggott could sign the paperwork whilst on holiday via Docusign if the club using that. 

didn't say everyone is on holiday but a number of staff from Rovers was away on Holiday like Waggott, Slivester, Gill and Mowbray last week.

Must be nice to sit at home for three months then go on holiday for two weeks.

Or he's looked at the previous 8 yrs and made up his own mind? 

Ahhh yeah. Great argument. Not! 
 

Not even true that btw. We’ve signed a number of players from June to the last day since Venkys came in. But let’s not let the truth get in the way of a good story hey?

To be fair, we don’t know any of these people from Adam, so they could well be posting duff information. As much as any of us might want these things to be true, there’s a chance they might not be....

Yep, let’s assume that all these fully grown men are lying. Makes sense 👍🏼

Edit - Tbf at least you’ve been honest enough to admit that you think the posters are lying though.

Given the absolute car crash that has been Venkys reign its hardly surprising people are sceptical of rumours on a message board. Get a grip.

A grip of what? Your obsession with what’s gone before over what’s happening right now? No thanks 👍🏼

The trouble was the bloke he brought into replace him made Raya look like Lev Yashin.

Venkys are still very much happening to this club mate. They're the reason we're an absolute shit show.

I don't disagree Raya is better, but the way some have talked of him, especially following the Arsenal and Man City link, you'd think he was Alisson. Yet when he was with us he made errors, wasn't dominant enough...some short memories have just been reminded.

There’s people on here who have provided first hand info that we do have a budget and are making moves.

So either you’re saying those people are lying, you’ve been lay under a rock for the last week or you’re on the wind up? Which is it? 

'Making moves' can be done without having a budget.

As I suggested last week my opinion is, assuming the information about targets is correct, that Mowbray is approaching things in reverse order, hoping to get his ducks in a row ready for the approval to come through from India eventually.

He can target whoever he likes and even have tentative discussions with them but it is very different to cash changing hands.

We are good at talking. Its the doing part we struggle with.

But I am also very apprehensive and cynical about these supposed targets and how much truth there Is in them given the whereabouts of senior staff and information we have been given.

As ever. Overrated!

Massively.

Good keeper at this level, but you'd think we let Given walk out the door with some of the hand wringing that goes on here. 

Was it a mistake? Possibly - although by some accounts he wanted a massive pay rise / to leave anyway. It's not the only mistake ol' Tone has made and it won't be his last.

I've just watched two bang average teams battle it out bore me to tears for 120 minutes for a £160m prize and all I could think of (after I'd stopped laughing at Calamity Raya) is "bloody hell, how bad must we be?!"

Shite is the answer, unfortunately. Thanks Venkys.
