How do we know there is no urgency? 3 years ago.. Back 4 v Southend 2017 Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Williams,    All 4 players still at the club and 3 nailed on to start ag

I don't want to be known as ITK. However, my good friend who has strong links at Wigan believes the deal with Kipre is pretty much a done deal with us.    I hope he's right. 

West Bromwich Albion are Founder Members of the Football League, they’ve spent around 80 seasons as a top flight club (10 seasons more than us), they’ve also won numerous trophies. They are a historic

Very different season to come.  Mowbray gets what he wants (more or less) Venkys put another 18 million into the club presumably to keep us afloat over Covid but also to cover salaries for our new players.

For the first time, Mowbray now needs to deliver.

Yes, he had no excuses now.

Well Tony....I have been one of your most fierce critics. This window looks like it’s been the best in years.....you have cracking pegs already at the club....and this week some very exciting new pegs have arrived. All you need to do is put them in the right holes ...... if you can....we will all be with you !

Love a good pegging...

Wow. 
 

That is an impressive window. And we didn’t even look like selling one of our goodies.
 

What an impressive squad. 
 

Seriously, do we have the strongest (Championship) squad on paper? Or is that just me being overly optimistic?

Maaaannnn ....

 

I know hardly anything about most other championship teams so I would have to say we have the best squad BY FAR.

He isnt in his final year:

I am also unconvinced that he is coming as back up.

Ok, i stand corrected. Pretty sure I read a lot of people saying he was.

That said, I still doubt he will have stipulations in the deal to play in the same way that Elliott might. Norwich want him gone and at his age, he is hardly going to develop further. Think this is more of a prove to us we should sign you or get yourself into the shop window for other clubs.

Yep.

A window better than we dared hope for.

etc etc

Providing Mowbray loses his square pegs in round holes syndrome, I think we'll walk it.

Just put £150 on Rovers for promotion at 13/2.

Good enough for you? 

 

Brilliant response!

Kalinski - looks sound though early days

Stergiakis - ticks the boxes as a good no 2 ready to challenge for no 1

Pears - don't get at all, IMO, bang average and a four year contract is ridiculous

Ayala - steady but brings experience

Douglas - shrewd, hope the lad stays fit

Trybull - adds to the depth but mystified why Norwich would loan him to us if such a player

Dolan - the lad excites me, could be a gem - let's see if he maintains form

Elliott - Liverpool friend has just phoned who I rate as as a good judge of football.  Reckons Elliott will blow the opposition away and help fire us to PL 

IMO, top two is there for the taking this season.  Confidence and momentum is everything.

For entertainment value Mercer is the best poster on this board. Anyone who says different is lying ?... Putting Elliott in for Brereton in that front three is a huge improvement, top signing. IFollow take my f***ing money now it’s yours. :lol:

A pleasing window and better than most of us would have expected, myself included. We have good options now.

Mowbray will have to whip them into shape and get them working well.

It does seem Venkys have allowed Mowbray a decent wage budget to get good players in the building so credit goes out for that.

Without wanting to put a dampner on a good day's business I want us to urgently address the contact situations.

We should be all set until May but after that we've a raft of players out of contract or at the end of loans. That must be addressed over the coming months or we will be in trouble next summer.

I can’t argue with any of that. The only thing I would add is that Pears seems to be on the back of Fisher leaving so I can see a bit of sense in it. Don’t know enough about him to be honest but guess he’s a replacement for Fisher and hopefully not on big money.

Ive had a similar call from a Liverpool supporting friend who has a very similar opinion of Elliott. Meant to be quite a talent. 
Like you, I hope Mowbray keeps it simple and plays our best players in their best positions. It’s not hard. Don’t over complicate things. 
Think we both agree on the window.

Ridiculous contracts for Tonys mates.kids...a la Paul Downing...slipped it in.quietly.  Ben Benson will feel feckin lilliputian when everyonw is at training.

With so many keepers on the books, Benson is gonna lose his voice.

Clean sheet! Save! Yessss!

Oh well. Another window over. I guess we will have to wait for our annual "I was wrong" by Mercer predicting 20 million pound savings, club tittering on the edge of oblivion and all his other doomsday predictions.

Now we will "walk it".

Man is a walking contradiction, but nevertheless it is hard to feel anything but joy at todays business so I won't spoil the occassion.

Anyone else excited for the game tomorrow? Jesus, I've not felt giddy in a while.

Oh right, I misread the BBC site. Is this a big loss, or were the other youngsters better? And is there any talk of a fee?

I’m not sure he’s done a lot wrong. The turnover in our goalkeeping department is quite high lately. Benson continues unaffected. Bit of a theme at the club really.
