I might even start being a Mowbray fanboy if he doesn’t start playing Ayala on the left wing 😁

I’d sooner see Ayala on the wing than Gallagher, at least he’d win some headers off our goal kicks, and I genuinely mean that! 🤣

Douglas, Trybull, and Pears all to come in before the deadline and Downing to re-join next week. Fantastic business all round.

Quality options in every position.

On the wing is the only time Gally does win any headers. Trouble is they're usually onto nobody! He's terrible in the box with his sweed too.

Where would Downing play ? Can't see him getting any gametime in central midfield now. Waste of wages in my opinion.

We've already had a 200K bid turned down for Pears and given the manager has said we aren't going to spend £1 Million on one player if we are paying 300-400K Boro want for Pears then that is a sizable chunk of the budget. Surely the much vaunted European scouting network will have enabled Mowbray to know all about the Greek lad prior to signing. Also he did cost a fee and has a 3 year contract. To go wasting clubs funds on a third goalkeeper in one window would be crazy.

According to Sharpe and Crooke he didn't cost a fee,there is sell on and appearance clauses in the contract.

You would have to presume that the price for Pears has dropped now we have gotten closer to deadline and they want him out.

IL trust the management on this one as not seen a great deal of either but at least Pears has Championship experience and isn't going to cost a lot.

I think we would find it hard to sign a forward player who would cost as little as Pears that would improve us.We might have found a loan but any decent young player from the prem that is available on loan the parent club want guarantees that he will start or get so many minutes etc and with Armstrong and Dack to come back and the emergence of Dolan could we give those guarantees?I don't think we could 

Think it's been a good window myself, if we secure Trybull and Douglas,Ayala top centre half at this level, Kaminski looking the business, the emergence of Dolan.No player of any value sold.

In the current climate and our limited budget I think we have done very well to be honest

Best transfer window in years if we get the lb and cm in. 

The most solid sensible one since we recruited for promotion from lge 1 imo if those come off.....

Nice to see the scattergun has been put away.

Didn't we have a strike partnership that spoke portuguese to each other on the pitch (I want to say Benni McCarthy was one of them) on the grounds that the opposition wouldn't understand what they were saying to each other? Would having a German double pivot in Trybull and Holtby have the same effect?

Kaminski
Ayala
Trybull
Stergiakis
Pears
Douglas
Dolan.

Undisputedly a brilliant transfer window, with barely a few million spent.

We will be fantastic if we can get 20 players on the pitch at the same time.

100k according to Crooke.

McCarthy and Santa Cruz spoke Spanish to each other.

Thanks, that was bugging me. Must have imagined Portuguese because we bought Benni from Porto.

I stand corrected I'm sure Sharpe did say there was no fee.

Still stand by what I said it's been a very good window on the provision we complete the signings of Trybull and Douglas

Versatile back up option. He won’t be on big wages this time around.

Oh dear, think you might be in the 1% on here, thinking as you do.

What's the point in wasting money on a 3rd keeper?

What's the point in signing Trybull and lining him up alongside the likes of Buckley  Davenport as another midfielder we never or hardly ever use?

Has Douglas been confirmed? If he has then that's hopefully the one addition we really need. The other two I can't see the point of  at all but IF the senior signings  Kaminski, Ayala and Douglas turn out well then it'll be a very good window, certainly the best since we've been promoted, not that that's much of a bar to beat and it's certainly not before time either.

This is a totally different season.

Two games a week every week.

The prize goes to a club with a system and a big squad capable of playing it.

Expect many players to be appearing in 20 to 30 games.

Trybul is now the  best thing since sliced bread, I'd genuinely never heard of him until today. Must be a goodun if norwich have let him go.

Douglas if fit could do a job.

Ayala carthorse in my opinion

Dolan top lad

Goalie seems decent

Lets just reserve the celebrations until they all contribute something

Cmon Sparks mate - have a little bit of optimism about the season.

To be fair, the window could turn into a very shrewd one, fingers crossed. Not perfect but some clever additions for sure. The main dampner of optimism for me is something that is certainly not a fault of anyone at Rovers, it is that we cant go and see them play!

I can’t believe people on here don’t think we need another CM. Travis is out...Evans never fit...Holtby injury prone...Johnson i doubt will keep up his form...then you left with Buckley and Davenport and Rothwell...i think this CM lad will be a good addition

Very strange regarding Downing, would seem like overkill to me. In Trybull, Evans, Johnson, Holtby, Rothwell, Buckley, Davenport, wouldnt an 8th, even assuming that Dack will play in the front 3 be a bit much? Maybe we should loan Davenport out?

Personally, I tend to believe Sharpe over Crooke. Not sure crooke has any more inside knowledge than we have
