    Lewis Travis

    I always feel like there is a distinct correlation between wages and our starting line up. Hence some of Mowbrays favourites rarely being dropped. Not only is it good to tie Trav down but hopefully this indicates Mowbray, like the fans see him as central to our future success

    He'll go at some point I'm sure. But I get the impression Dacky quite likes it here. I can't see him kicking up a mega fuss. He gets criticized, by myself included about his celeb lifestyle and his mrs. But shes moved up here with him. Unlike someone like Harrison Reed who always had the pressure on him to get back south. I think he's pretty settled.

    Nyambe centre back, Magloire right back?

    Joe Hart as the goalie then?

    5 is what has been reported in the press. But Wigan fans were shocked they were even sniffing around a player at that price. I've a funny feeling it's going to be a fair bit less than that, going up to 5 should he perform well. Score enough goals, make enough appearances, promotion etc. At which point he would have definitely been worth the money. I just don't think Wigan would have been looking if it was 5 million guaranteed

    Kits 19/20

    Looks pretty nice. But ruined a bit with the bet 10 sponsor being black. It would look so much better if they just changed the colour slightly or applied a bit of trim to make it blend more with the shirt. Kit looks nice though

    Matt Clarke of Pompey went to Brighton for 6 million I believe. That is for a defender who has never played above league 1

    Put Raya in a team with proper commanding centre backs and his flaws will be nowhere near as obvious. Won't be perfect but we are clearly looking at what isn't a priority position. It's all about the big ugly centre half. And if Mowbray doesn't see that as his latest comments suggest he has taken us as far as he ever will.

    Every player should be trying to impress in pre-season to start that first game. Nobody should be guaranteed a place. If Mulgrew looked the biz in the build up to game 1 I'd have no problem him starting. Issue is it doesn't seem as though it is a level playing field. If hypothetically Bauer was with us and looked a real deal I'm not sure he'd be given that same opportunity from the off. Nobody should be guaranteed a starting place but players should be picked on form.

    My guess would be nobody has been home for Rovers. Everyone is on their hols. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in a player that they really are wanted when one club could be knocking on the door and the other is saying wait a few weeks until we are back from sangrias on the beach. I'm not levelling this at Mowbray. We knew what league we were in this year a long time ago. Yet with flying out to India then a well earned break and not a huge backroom team we are always going to be playing catch up

    Probably not as long as it seems but it feels as though Mowbray has been off forever.
