    Loan Window

    I think Mowbray has stated previously that every target has a set price that they're not going beyond. They don't want to be pushed around in negotiations, so that's why they've pulled out of the Bauer deal (for now) until Charlton come to their senses. Of course this tactic only works if we avoid standing empty-handed post deadline day... Us fans always want the latest inside info and in my next life I want to be an 'ITK', but for all parties involves the way Rovers for the most part have managed to keep things under wraps is for the better.

    Grabban is 30 years old and cost £6 million, and on PL wages. It's not the 'Venky's model' to pay over the odds for players with no resale value either. Besides, we have Graham on our books who's proven and Armstrong who has proven he fits well into our system, so I'm not too worried if we sign a 19 year-old.

    Like who? Personally I think Brereton would benefit a lot from learning under Mowbray and Danny Graham. A lot of younger strikers first and foremost need to work on their hold-up play and decision making, plus get that little bit of composure by getting match experience at a higher level. Knowing he'd be first or second pick here rather than third or fourth at Forest will hopefully be enough to convince him of joining, but if I read ewoodnews' post correctly, then we're only trying to agree the loan fee as Forest are not looking to sell...?

    And a great manager who knows what he's after!

    I've only watched clips of him online, but he looks to have a bit intensity in his game. A few yellow cards, proper pace, just (probably) needs to work on his finishing as his record last season wasn't the best. I'd say £6 million for 8 goals in 53 games striker is pushing it, but in Mowbray I trust. Exciting times!

    Wouldn't want to develop players for our rivals but the state of football is what it is. If we loan a Nmecha or a Harper from the PL, then I'm all for it, but when it's from a rival and without a view to buy then I'm a bit more skeptical. Older players with less potential resell value is a different matter though, although the modern game is totally bonkers and Mulgrew would probably fetch us a cool £75 million if his name was Carlo Mulagretto. 😎

    Didn't say I wouldn't. Just saying he's probably not on our radar. Doesn't have pace to burn but is still an exciting prospect despite a couple of uneventful seasons on loan in the Dutch Eredivise.

    Not really the type of player we're looking at I would imagine. Sensible move for him though...

    Where's the guy who took the day off work in anticipation? I'm not sure whether deals were tougher to make this window, or whether we really didn't want to spend anymore money but camouflaged it by having a few bids rejected late on. The way Tony Mowbray has been speaking about transfers must have left him just as underwhelmed as most of the fans. Will be interesting to hear what he has to say about the window as a whole. I wish they would just get rid of the transfer windows altogether.

    He's got nothing that really stands out in his game, I agree with you on that. Doesn't utilise his physique enough, but as second fiddle to DG I think he'd be good enough. Loan with a view if he exceeds our expectations would be the sensible move here in my opinion.

    Thursday deadline.

    Just about every Championship club looking for a striker will try for Abraham end of August. Big risk. Sam Gallagher seems like a sensible option. We know what he stands for, will chip in with a few goals and can play as on the flank as well. Not a dream signing, but we're not looking to replace Graham...yet.

  13. As soon as Conway is subbed on you just know that the opposition is going to score. For an experienced player he sure makes a lot of daft decisions on the ball when we're trying to secure three points. No aerial ability either, can't figure out why he was given a contract extension this summer.

    According to his wiki page, Celtic had three bids rejected by Hibs for McGinn in July. Do we have the funds and would he want to move here?
