  1. I'll put my hands up to say I've been one of Nyambe's biggest critics over the last season or so, however he's made great strides already this season. It looks like the full season playing in League 1 has done him the world of good. He can still look clumsy in possession, but people have already mentioned he's often able to recover well using his pace and strength. My main concern with him at the moment is his use of the ball in the final third. He doesn't seem to have a cross in him, so he always has to cut the ball back to Bennett to whip it in. It doesn't take a genius manager to pick up on that and essentially limit anything meaningful coming down our right side.

    Reading between the lines, that sounds as though Chapman will be joining in January. Obviously providing that Boro sign the necessary replacements.

    Haha fair enough. I haven't seen the image. Just a lot of mentions of big cats. By the sounds of Mowbray's comments, he'll either be signing here or staying put if it gets too late in the day or Boro don't sign enough players to warrant him going.

    Just to be an arse and add to the silly Chapman destination debate, Millwall are known as The Lions. He's always posting pictures of his dog on Instagram, so maybe he's just an animal lover.
  5. - I expected Whittingham to be our stand out player last season and potentially our new captain at the time of signing. - For one of Gestede's first games with us on loan, I spent the whole 90 minutes calling him a donkey and claiming he wasn't good enough. How wrong I was. What a player; especially in the air.

    Such a strange link. I don't see the appeal of Turkey unless it was one of the big boys. I was half expecting it to be teams like Boro, Derby and Celtic for some reason. I'd have been half concerned by the link then.

    He's posted various stuff on instagram where you can see him lying around with some sort of recovery strapping on his leg. Not to say that isn't misdirection advised by the club, but it does seem very unlikely.

    I've no problem with us potentially signing Rodwell. Mowbray has made it clear that it would only happen if he accepts an affordable wage, plus he'd have a point to prove to sort out his career. As initial back up for CM & CB, it could be an absolute bargain on a free transfer. If he performs, we could have a £5-£10 million player on our books. I don't buy into the desperation comments. If an opportunity like that pops up, it's definitely something to consider. I'm not surprised that he's got a few options open to him.

    Think people have got their wires crossed with that one.. Isn't that James Husband, hence the 'Hubby' tag. They played together at Norwich.

    Rothwell, Evans and Bennett all put in a massive shift last night. They were brilliant and a big reason why we managed to get ourselves back in to the game so well last night. Rothwell in particular impressed me. Looks like we've signed a bit of a gem.

    We know that Mowbray likes his players to be versatile. Bennett, Williams, Travis & Armstrong are shining examples of that. Brereton seems to fit the mould in that he can play comfortably as a lone striker or as a wide forward. Providing he signs, I can see him and Armstrong sharing the lone striker and left foward roles in our current formation long term.

    Exactly. They're now haggling to get the best possible deal on him. As I'm sure we would do when selling any of our assets. The difference with the Bauer transfer, is that Charlton aren't in a strong position to negotiate due to Bauer's contract running down and his public statement saying that he won't be signing a new one. They're just digging their heels in for the sake of it, hoping they'll get an excessive transfer fee. That one shouldn't have dragged on as long as it has.

    I took it that we're potentially close to sealing the Brereton deal and that we're moving on from Bauer.

    Thursday deadline.

    Severely disappointing end to the window. However if either of those reported bids were accepted, there'd be a completely different mood in here. I don't buy that the bids were to appease fans. If they were accepted, the players would be here. On reflection Armstrong signing is massive for us. Along with Palmer joining that's a statement of intent. The window can easily be salvaged with a winger and a striker on loan (ideally with a view to buy), which Mowbray will no doubt be targeting.

    I'd have him back in a heartbeat.
