    Sorry to hear that you have been seriously unwell. Hope and pray that you are able to make a full recovery.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    What Mowbray walked into was a club that was in total disarray both on and off the field. The scouting structure was completely dismantled by Kean and then Shebby. We lost all of our good scouts. This is not the kind of thing that can be put together overnight, what Mowbray has focussed on was to get the domestic scouting structure right, he now has largely done that and is ready to look at our European/International scouting network. This is not an easy undertaking. If the players TM wants to sign our too expensive then I agree with him that it is better to wait until Summer to see what can be done, there is no point wasting the limited resources that we on players that he isn't convinced about just because they are available and are cheaper. At the moment is looks like the money spent on Brereton was not the right deal to do but we can't change that now, however it is still early in his career with us and we just have to hope that Mowbray can help him realise the potential that he obviously seen in him.

    Reports this morning that Southampton have received 4 loan offers for Austin from Premier League clubs, problem for them is that are they going to risk loaning/selling him to relegation rivals? However if there is Premier League interest I would imagine Austin himself pushing to stay in the Premier League. Looks like we have competition for Gallagher from other Championship clubs.

    Ha ha he has credit in the bank by turning the Dack investing of £700,000 into a possible £20 million plus return!!

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    I am sure that the owners have been made aware that these players are available but the big question is how desperate is Mowbray to sign them given the levels of finance involved and him being big on thoroughly looking at a players background to try and ensure as much as possible that he will fit into the culture within the squad that he has built. I am sure that if TM was desperate to sign them and approached the owners there is a very good chance they would make finance available but I am not convinced that he is desperate to sign them and has continued to focus on getting Gallagher.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Gallagher has always been the primary target because it is a player that Mowbray knows and more importantly he fits within the budget that we have left. Austin and Britt are players that are available and offered to a number of clubs but in terms of cost it would beyond our current budgets unless there is intervention from the owners. We need to get a striker in before the deadline so it is sensible that the focus is on the one that we can afford. Austin and Assombalonga would be amazing in different ways but these are complicated deals which will require more money from the owners which in itself is a complicated process and then we would have to beat a number of clubs who are interested.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    This from Mowbray is a little concerning as it does sound as though he would be open to Travis going out on loan once he has got someone in "“Like when all these clubs phone me about Nuttall and Travis, I get told the same, if and when we get the players we are looking at, there’s every chance he will be able to go out on loan". Travis is ready and deserving of a first team chance. If he is loaned out, not only is it a stupid move because he is ready to have a positive impact on our first team, it also sends out a bad message to all of the other young players at the club.

    TM tried to sign Ambrose in 2017 on loan, so this is one to watch if he doesn't go to Cardiff as speculated above by Bigdoggsteel: Efe Ambrose Leaves Hibs after Triggering Clause

    Ben Brereton

    I do feel sorry for Brereton. It is very hard to make any kind of positive impact constantly just coming on as a substitute. I think @meadows has it spot on with his information that this signing is not one that Mowbray has found, more something that has been suggested to the owners. Given that information that Jim has come across it now all makes sense. Brereton doesn't get game time because Mowbray prefers to play with a big strong centre forward who can hold up the ball and bring others like Dack into the game, from the limited bits that I have sign of Brereton he is not that type of player, he looks to be a type of player who likes to get in between the lines and get in behind the defenders, totally unsuited to the way we play. If there is any get out clause (and I very much doubt that there is) then it should be exercised. If there is not then the best thing that we can do is to send him out on loan in January to a team that suits the way he plays (preferably in the Championship) so that he can gain some form and hopefully get some belief that he can play at this level. If the Brereton signing is a Venky's vanity project then it is a massive shame that they didn't just give that £7 million to Tony who would have spent in a much wiser way.

    Premier League Stuff

    After his latest antics this morning that club will not move forward until they get rid of Paul Pogba. Jose deserved the sack for his results but Pogba seems to think that he is bigger than the club and is as Jose described him a virus infecting the entire dressing room, his ego is out of control.

    Looks like it will be Laurent Blanc to replace Jose until the end of the season.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Compared to the last time we were in the Championship this season has been infinitely better and we have a manager who at least seems to have a roadmap for the future that he believes and more crucially the Venky's believe in. With a squad that is not one of the strongest in the league we are at present well clear of relegation worries and pushing towards a top 10 finish, hopefully the scouts that have been working hard can help to bring in a couple of players that improves us and then we can do the same in the Summer and evolve our squad.

    New Games

    For me it is Red Dead Redemption 2, closely followed by Celeste, Spiderman and God of War. I thought 2017 was a good year for gaming but 2018 has taken things to a whole new level. Also on PSVR there are some brilliant experiences in Astro Bots, Beat Sabre VR, Tetris Effect and Farpoint. Those games alone justify the PSVR purchase.

    Brexit Thread

    An old Eaton boys dispute between Cameron and Johnson has led to the referendum that was completely not needed, they the Tories have made a complete and utter hash of any negotiating position that we could have had so now we are left facing a very bad deal or no deal scenario. We are now left facing a decision that will be bad for all of us particularly the working class. I feel sorry for the young generation that will grow up in a country which is divided, isolated and lacking the opportunities that we had when we were growing up.

    Bradley Dack

    A good season for Dack (and I think he will stay at Rovers this season, barring someone offering crazy money for him in January) will see his value skyrocket to £20 million plus, as per what Leicester paid Leicester paid for James Maddison after he had good season for Norwich.

    Must be true if the "reliable" journo said so!
  19. Sad and terrible news. Lennie after finishing with football became a teacher and was at St Silas Primrary School when my kids were there so I got to know him, he is a fantastic teacher and genuinely very nice man.

    Loan Window

    Sam Gallagher is one that we are trying to sign it would be a loan with a buy clause in January. There is a difference in our and Southampton's valuation so if we can overcome that then he will be one that we will get.

    Thursday deadline.

    Absolutely Matt but it does seem that this summer in particular the level has gone up much faster than previously. We had Wolves last year paying crazy money but the rest of the league was fairly sensible so things remained relatively controlled. Personally I would rather they carry on doing what we are doing in that we only spend what we can realistic afford to do so, it might not be very exciting but hopefully it will lead to the debt being slowly being reduced and our medium term future being a little bit more secure.

    Thursday deadline.

    There are clubs in the championship who are spending crazy money this summer, some with parachute payments some without. Unfortunately for us this has had a trickle down effect in that what we thought would be a reasonable budget is now being stretched. The hope is that as we get closer to the deadline it will focus people's minds and deals with get done and a more realistic level. Priority has to be to get permanent deals done first as window closes 5pm on 9th August. Loans we can worry about later as that window is open until 31st August.
