I think with Rovers it depends on who these agents are.

It’s getting comical now! 😂

TM sounds like a grandad trying to convince his Grandson he was in the SAS!! How many transfers have we been on the brink of completing in recent windows, then for the mysteriously disappear in to thin air!

Intriguing comments from Mowbray about the player (s) that wants us to sign a couple of targets to prove we're serious about promotion.

That's where we are as fans at the moment too. Hopefully, he does bring in some quality in defence and we can push on.

I'd much rather us avoid bureaucracy, agents and suits, back to the dark days of paying 7-figure agents fees and dealing with 3rd party groups. If we can't get Deal A and B done because of those financial and logistical type things then I completely respect and understand that.

The problem however is that so many other clubs do manage to get deals done. Are the other 23 championship clubs not dealing with the same suits, with the same demands, or is it that all 23 other clubs are just happy to pay large agents fees and deal with difficult and frustrating 3rd party groups?

I think we have discussed this before. Nobody wants to pay agents, 3rd parties or 'suits' but what we do need is business savy, reliable, staff at the club to handle this sort of thing. It's not Mowbray's job or Venus' job. Waggot will obviously have some input but the whole operation needs to be more organised. Maybe that's how the other 23 clubs work.

There's always an excuse here isn't there?

Mysterious third parties that suddenly appear just as these foreign signings are flying in for a medical.

Random Premier League clubs coming in and offering more money with our deal almost done.

In fact we've had just about every excuse going and I'm bored with it.

Its been going on for over 3 years and the situation isn't good enough. Something has to change. Our transfer strategy or system isn't working. 

would you prefer paying 1.6 million agents again? Or when agents chasing fees demands after it been agree?

We are right not to get involved in third party like West Ham or other clubs do? Third party ownership is common theme in some countries.

How on earth do you get to arrange flights and medicals without having hammered out the deal first ? Makes no sense.

As many have pointed out before, our approach to recruitment is tin pot. Mowbray and Venus should be nowhere near this sort of thing. They should provide names to the 'recruitment team' and then get back to managing the football team. It's not the 1970s!

 

Deals get done between clubs and players agent so who this 3rd party person?

The deals get agreed and then agents move the goalposts last minute thinking that both clubs and the player are too far down the road to squabble over ‘a measly £100k’....I’m actually glad they cancelled it

Agreed. Or would people prefer to be paying agents or third party people inflation fees again. Like Rochina''s agent fee 1.6 million.

Presume the foreign player on a plane over here was Schmidt (sp)? 

I wouldn't be surprised if this is the player who's told Tony to buy some quality to prove we are serious about promotion

Is it possible that some of this comes from the owners? As in they realised that they got taken for an absolute ride by Anderson etc. and are now over compensating and refusing to sanction signings with big agent pay offs? 

I mean I doubt they are as hands on as that, but I can see sending a missive from Pune saying 'no more agents'  and the club just having to try and live with it.

I missed that. Have we missed out on a target because they want to see us show more ambition? 

I was more thinking that this was the player that wants to come here but his agent is demanding too much.

Other clubs don't have Mowbray, Waggott and Venus.

“We have told the owners that we have to be engaging with other players as well to get them on longer-term contracts if we can, and if they will sign, so we can retain the assets so that if any clubs come in for our assets, and there’s been talk about some about some of our players which is good, but we have to protect them so if they do have to go, we get the right terms for them.”

This worries me. I can see another “He will be signing any day now” scenario.

IMO, a Premier League bullsh!tter.

Didn't see any challenge from Bayes at all - think you could pull any 16 year old off the street to do what Bayes does.  IMO, a waste of space as a journalist.

Why in the world would there be a domino effect for new signings? As if they're all waiting for one to sign before they will. Another total bollocks statement. They might end up signing in short order of each other, but not because of a domino effect, just cos time is running short.

Just this quote on the article:

The other player I'm talking to wants to get to the Premier League and I say 'if I sign you then that will be really positive'.

"But I have to get one or two over the line in order for them to believe that's where we're going and that's what we want to do and that's how the journey is going to be."

 

Load of bollocks most likely but the proof is in the pudding.

All signs point to Nyambe,Lenihen, Williams, Bell for Saturdays game.

When i said i think they are half hearted in their approach to these defenders they are alleged to be after i think it's because the above is TM first choice back line. I really don't think he rates those he's after as any better than Williams and that lot all fall within budget, so he won't pay them more when they'd be coming in as back up. It's how he's worked the past few years so no reason to think anything has changed.

Release the groundhog the season is here again, usual suspects in front of yet another change of keeper. The detail is in the planning.

I can just about understand the logic with Williams. But surely we can get someone better than Bell.

And Suhail and Venkys other 'advisors' plus owners who don't call back for 2 days.

Hey, it could be Shebby Singh. Wonder what that t*sser is up to nowadays?

As long as he is as far away from this club as possible, I don't mind.

Although, if he had a hand in getting rid of K**n, he should be hailed as a hero.

A real dilemma that one

Singh's presence and interference totally upset Kean & Anderson little money making racket and for that i'd always buy him a pint. It was far too late though to make much difference in the grand scheme of things and the longer he was around he began to add to it. Had his own delusions of grandeur and money making after his war with Shagnew.
