    Everything Mowbray seems to say and do just emphasises how many years we've been starved of basic competence.

    As soon as Waggott was not allowed to play football manager anymore things improved and it is amazing how quickly he cleared off when his fun ended.

    This is clearly one of our biggest transfer windows for a very long time - maybe since they became windows- and I can't wait to see where we are by the end of it. And there is no one better to be there than Mowbray and Venus (lets not forget how important he appears to be)

    Clearly exciting times ahead and perhaps two or three may depart, I actually think all, including Turner will stay but one thing to me is certain their replacements will be better.

    Tend to agree here.
    There clearly is some aim from SISU to be in championship next season. Did not see the same obvious enthusiasm for that in 2011/12. Maybe it's purely down to TM compared to AT, or
    some other factor. We just don't know at this stage.

    Only thing we do know is , we can easily get out of this rubbish league if we keep our concentration and support.

    Playing devils advocate here a little.. we are top of the table without Maddison... get a good fee for him and see what we can achieve with more money not that i want to see Madders go just yet but he is a saleable asset and we have done pretty well without him

    If he's as good as many people on here seem to think then he would be a valuable player in the championship next season (if we go up!) and his value would only increase surely?

    I'd be happy if we didn't sign anyone else and kept who we have now until the end of the season. If key players go then we can replace them

    I think we are one defender short anyway as Willis is long term injured. If two of the regular back four are injured then we have real problems.

    Would like to see a RB added and Turner replaced and the other loans extended. Then I'll be happy.

    I don't think we'll keep Armstrong, but am happy to be proven wrong.

    Replace turner and specialist rb

    Extend Bigi and Armstrong. Hopefully kent too regardless of Maddison fitness

    Cancel lateef and maybe buy another striker

    Extend cole also if fitness keeps up

    Just Few steps away from success!

    Why do we see Ben Turner going back to Cardiff a certainty, isn't he out of contract in the summer ? I think given the option he would stay.wouldn't cost a fee, lives local, knows we are on the up, knows under TM we will get better and he's a Sky Blue I think there's every chance he will stay

    Cardiff want him fit again. If he plays well I am sure they will offer him a contract

    He's probably on £15k a week and Cardiff want to keep him.

    Why wouldn't he cost a fee? He's still in contract.

    But that was a premiership deal I suspect, what would he command now and what do we think Cov will pay in the championship they have to compete wage wise or don't bother going up

    How can we compete with no 365 revenues and also no parachute payments. Remember Bournemouth paid Kenwyne Jones £39,000 a week to sit on the bench in the championship.

    Lateef contract is up in Jan anyway. Agree with everything else. Though I'd hold fire on a striker while we've got so many forwards not getting a game.

    If we can sign a CB we can have all our loans in the squad as well.

    ? 365 revenues ? When was the last time we had them then ? I am talking the football club, I will say it again if we can't compete wage wise why bother with this promotion charge. We have a lot of short contract players and remember championship players will expect championship wages. We can't be saying for example Maddison is worth 3 or 4 million and pay him just a couple of grand a week and there are others like him here

    And regarding Lateef reports I am hearing are he is a decent player and a real prospect. Didn't Tony Mowbray say when he joined he was one very much for the future.

    If he was very much for the future, why sign him on a 4 month contract?

    So would TM go after say Tom Pope as a striker? Would do even better in our team.

    Because that's what they do nowadays, shortism, down to finances. Just because Lateef isn't around the current 1st team means he is surplass

    Reading between the lines of what TM said today I have a feeling a striker being signed this window is very much on the cards and I doubt it will be a kid. either. Sounds to me he has his sights on someone in this league or division 2

    Exactly. Mirror group sensationalist tabloid trash. I should have expected no less from you.

    Where does it say they paid him to sit on the bench. Again. You dilute and distill everything down to try to.suit your.arguments without considering myriad variables.
