Summer Transfer Window

Harvey will play. No way Liverpool would have let him come here without some kind of verbal promise that Harvey will get game time, especially as they had no intention of letting him go until TM put up a strong case. Him and Dolan will compete for the right attacking spot. 

The signings today probably spell the end for Davenport and Chapman.

We might have a lot of options. But in a way it is no more than previous years. There is just a lot more balance. If Elliot signs that is

I have no idea what the first choice 11 will be when everyone is fit. That's a great sign.

Then you have to pick a bench.

Chelsea probably thought the same about Palmer. Just saying

Be extremely harsh on Dolan if he has to split time on the pitch with this lad after the way he's played

 The question is with so many players to choose from will Tony have an idea of his best XI? On his past form I don't see that as a good sign

Is a 17-year-old going to be picked over Holtby, Johnson, Rothwell, Travis (when fit), the Norwich lad, and all the other experienced midfield players on the books?

I don't think so....unless Liverpool have a clause in the deal guaranteeing him game time. 

No one can guarantee game time, but some clubs want a fee if  the player doesn’t play  a set number of games, very good loan signing.

I do think it’s different this season in that we genuinely need two players for each position. We now have this in spades...big chance!

Haven't signed Elliott yet, but I think it's similar to the previous week where we have to have the deal sheet in by 5pm.

Another positive this season, looks like we've installed a newer fax machine, maybe we've even implemented e-mail!

Elliott mainly plays on the left but can play right across the attacking positions in midfield.

I’d say rotating Dolan and Elliott at 18 and 17 respectively is a fantastic option...

Elliot a far superior player to Palmer even at 17

According to my reckoning means no Chapman in the 25 Apologies if I missed anyone else

I think Tony will go with 2 keepers freeing up a space for Chapman.

I agree about Dolan - but with so many mid week games, it would be difficult to keep fitness levels up. Though I don't normally like it - rotation will be important this season.

Elliott has to be registered in the 25- he is on loan. 

Dolan is under age so doesn't have to be.

Then it is a question of under 21 when?

Buckley and JRC have both just had their 21st birthdays. If the cut off is the nominal start on the 20/21 season, they can both be treated as under aged.

Hayden Carter Carter is still under 21, Scott Wharton isnt.

Players who are 21 whose birthdays were before 30 June include Stergiakis and Davenport

Under 21 players don't need to be registered so still room for Chapman

The Greek keeper wouldn't have to be registered either? correct?

Good to hear. 

If he slots in on the left with Dolan on the right which I'd like to see that would be harsh on Brereton who has also started well but if he's even better so be it, there shouldn't be any sentiment in football and that's where Mowbray has gone wrong over the last couple of seasons imo.

I'd expect the young Greek lad and Fisher to go out on loan.

Can't see how we are loaning the Greek. It would be to a league below and I doubt they're scouting Bulgaria down there. They won't know who the fuck he is so they're not gonna rely on him to keep goal. Fisher loan meant to be up in the air last I heard.

If he were in that sort of bracket he wouldn't be on loan to us. 

 

There's going to be an awful lot of unhappy players in Mowbray's squad. As someone has pointed out, Mowbray can only pick 11.

On the other hand, the bran tub of Tony's Tombola has just got even deeper.

Stand by for more chopping and changing and different tactics every week to try and keep the camp happy.  

TM has already said he has a decent squad but  light on numbers, he’s rectified that, there will be injuries, squad numbers about right, with probably a couple going out on loan, as well as Charlie going to Fleetwood.

Very decent window, with a mixture of permanent, loans, experienced and young ‘uns..

Only slight disappointment is that Josh King didn’t go anywhere..

Horses for courses gives us options which will be needed over a season.
