    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Their name is over the door the buck stops with them, more so if as some believe the debt is secured against their assets in India so by my reckoning it's sell for what you can get back, liquidate ( which would open up all sorts of issues for them publically ) or keep the wheels turning. Thankfully they seem able to do that and even to the point of it seems to suit their accounting process. Think we need to step away from the generosity angle though as yet again i'll remind everyone of what was happening in the last year of Bowyers tenure and beyond.

    Pretty clear we are recruiting from the same old channels again if those 2 keepers go through. Now, about that actual scouting.................

    Yep we really don't want to go down that road if they start doing stuff like that then given their track record we'll never get it back.

    It's almost like he's tried his level best not to bring in an good experienced CB lol Charlie bhoy must really hold some sway.

    That's what i've been saying about 'front loading' to allow the conveyor belt to kick in although there are a lot of 'ifs' in it and as per with this lot the risk is huge because they are buying high with the 'hope' of selling higher.

    There's been plenty you're just cherry picking again to suit the 'negative' vibe. I've mentioned many times we are batting from a position of relative strength compared to a few years ago in terms of squad value that's why imo most of our signings now whatever personal opinions on the individual players do actually strengthen the squad. There's no getting away from the fact that to date Brereton is a 7 million pound sub and some fell Gallagher might be the similar and some also feel we'll be starting with those two plus AA on the bench so that's a fair argument only time will tell. Correct about the defence but it's needed sound investment as well i mean we've had Travis and one or two others chipping away at a spot in midfield and Nuttall up front but that hasn't stopped signings and money spent to try and build up those areas. The value the young defenders are creating in the squad is wiped out by signings further up the pitch who are all probably bit part players as it stands so again it's a fair argument.

    Such has been the bonkers and unexplainable nature of this ownership we have to be the only fanbase in England where an element are suspicious and complaining when we are spending millions. We also have to be the only club in the Championship who look like only buying multi million pound substitutes whilst signing frees and loans for the first 11 ??? Is it any real wonder debates rage.

    Same agent as SG so it could be a goer.

    If Venkys hadn't started pouring it in again they'd be selling assets to cover it like a few years ago something a lot are suspicious of happening again so i think the paranoia can be excused a little. We weren't far off being a Bolton or Bury not long ago and with respect nobody warned of that more than your good self you seem to have done a remarkable U turn - in Venkys you trust ?

    I think Tony has had a microphone shoved under his hooter enough times down the years to know he's speaking in public, it's being recorded and typed down and people will discuss it and question him on it. His lack of consistency these days is getting hard not to notice.

    Well there is that as well.

    That's something i suspect might happen in the next 12 months or less but first it looks like they will try and add centre half cover to his cv to get the value up.
