Summer Transfer Window

Recommended Posts

Typical. Just when we are all bouncing off a win Tony brings us back to earth with a thump. Given left back is pressing in terms of quality and numbers you really think getting a good one in is crucial. 

We also need a reserve keeper and a few other positions look a bit thin but surely free agents could augment that? And a left back is more important than these positions. 

What I dont get is how he can be ok with Bell but not with Nayambe either.

Interested to know who this left back is thats ‘done’ then...

Same. Don't know a name, and I never claimed Manning was the one.

Bells played today, done well but it'll be one of his easiest tests this season next one won't be. 

Clean sheet and 5 goals means the whole team and subs and manager have done their jobs beyond expectations. Tonight is one for giving them ALL a toast before the boozers get kyboshed again.

Hopefully the jerks on Bells twitter will have a night off tonight and a bit of rare praise builds hi confidence, he needs it.

He mentioned on Thursday that he had a meeting in the afternoon about signings. Im guessing it didnt go too well.

The main worry amidst the quote is that left back isnt his main worry. 

Im guessing that the left back who was deciding within 24 hours has decided to go elsewhere.

Or they are just taking longer sizing up other offers like Ayala did.

Analysing the quote a little more, we might put all the remaining money into one signing, but we don't think that should be at LB. Again, worrying. He makes it sound like we are only getting an LB if it's on loan.

We really need King and/or Raya to be sold pronto.

We couldnt compete with those 2 clubs. We couldnt afford that sort of fee, backed up by Mowbrays comments today. I dont see why he would come to a side in a similar situation in terms of where they can finish and Johnson would be a regular in our team.

I’m from Glasgow, absolutely disagree that rangers and Celtics level is drastically above ours, most of their players come from or go to championship. Think mowbray is playing the finances close to his chest but he saved a mill on kipre/Ayala triangle, also the loans we have had cost about that past few years- again we don’t have that currently. You clearly don’t get rotation is being a regular in our team, as much as say holtby or rothwell. Travis and Johnson would be tidy imo

@JoeH where are you 👀 

Can you please tell me when I said Manning was the player in question? Because I never did. Something is done, I was told that much and that much only.

Mate, I thought Bell was very poor. Gave the ball away a lot under no pressure. No cutting edge, no penetration. Was thinking all game how much better we’d be with a proper lb in place...🙈

A couple of ‘ITK’s’ from QPRs side had said Manning was done to us. Perhaps he’s had an 11th hour change of heart.

Who hasn't?

Never said you did? You did however say we’d signed a left back, which we haven’t.

Mate, I really want to enjoy tonight so have no intention of cracking open this debate again. Venkys (who have been terrible for our club) have also pumped the best part of £150m in and continue to do so. They fund the academy and so much other stuff they genuinely don’t have to.

Swag and Cheston will be trying to keep us within FFP guidelines. You’ve heard these words literally come from the manager and Swag’s mouth before but if they want more money, they only need to ask!

I hope Mowbray is bluffing and I think we’ll get some money from King and Raya sales...so let’s see.

He is hardly going to publically slag off the owners is he, and paying the bills is different to being held back from throwing loads of money on transfers.

Suppose it is just one interpretation against another.

Doesnt sound like anything is done based on Mowbrays interview. Unless hes pulled a blinder.

The bar isn't high though and he's often responsible directly or indirectly for an opposition goal. Wasn't today so i'll take that it's a plus as far as he's concerned.

Totally agree we need a proper left back i don't rate the lad at all and just hope the manager shows some more steel and gets one in. This in recent years has been a big reason why we haven't moved on as maybe we should, the old over loyalty or trying to get away with what he has when he's had opportunities to improve it.

He'll rue it at some point if he doesn't strengthen that position, we all will.

Look, people can criticise, mock and disbelieve. I think going forward I’ll be saying nothing, people love to shut down anyone who shares anything they’ve heard.

I get why people can feel conned, but I only posted what I’d been told. I don’t take any enjoyment from transfers being delayed, transfers going wrong or being given false info, I don’t know why people think that would be done from posters purposefully.

I was extremely careful only to share what I knew/was told and nothing more, I never gave a name because I didn’t know one. I’ll be saying nothing more on it, and anyone else who feels like having a jibe or a dig can cope with being ignored.

I think you’ve guessed based off Twitter and hoped it’d come off I’ll be honest.

If that’s what you choose to think, it’s far from the truth but sure, if that’s your choice.

Breathe Joe, I’m just asking if you think the source was solid. The managers interview is confusing.

Ive been on the other side of this enough to know it’s an unforgiving place to be.

People like posting carrot danglers as you did, don't be surprised if you get some stick if it goes tits up, simple.

To be fair, I think everyone appreciates inside info.

But if you put info out there, you have to expect questions if nothing materialises. If you interpret that as a jibe than fair enough but everything I’ve read seems fair game in all honesty.

“I know exactly to the penny how much money we’ve got, it’s either a couple of loans or a signing, I would suggest, and I am not sure we’re going to spend it all on Ryan Manning when we’ve got Amari’i Bell doing okay.

“We’ve got other areas I think we need to strengthen first.”

I feel sick. 🤢

Hope that's a piss take
