There was still quite a bit of speculation going on in the old rumours thread when it was closed.

Yes speculation concerning this summer but issues that have been discussed a number of times.

 

Like the last one this will pick up pace when its good and ready

Not completely sure why there need be a new thread. What was wrong with the other one? That said, I don't really care.

Anthony Vickers said below one of his blogs:

 

"In the summer the club should have almost £2m leeway in the wage budget to rebuild with, more if they can shift McDonald too. They are already well ahead in scouting targets in untapped, low cost markets. They are also looking at some interesting loan arrangements that if they come off could be very cost effective and hopefully provide some bright young talent."

 

So basically when all loans go back and contracts expire we've got around £40,000 a week to strengthen the team plus additional sales. And if we sell McDonald then that will be a further £35,000 a week to sign a few players(total £75,000 a week).

Yeah if we sell them as well then Mowbray will have a pretty big pot of money to play with.

The question is, is Mogga the man you want to handle that responsibility? For many the answer seems to be no. Personally I think his greatest attribute is finding talented bargains, so I'd be very happy for him to do so. And if his obvious recent weakness (tactics!) continues, then a managerial change can be made (eventually) if need be. Though that's all probably more relevant in the Mogga thread.

    • If the manager talks about bad attitude and getting rid, then that destroys any bargaining position and lowers any potential fee further. It's amateur to do that, not to talk up a player. Additionally if we can't offload and needed him to be available for the team then best to have him onside in that eventuality. Remember the euro transfer window is open much longer than the championship one, so we could have potentially had him on the books for the first few weeks of the season and still be paying him during that time.
    • 5 million in, toxic attitude out and 50k off the wage bill.. it’s a no brainer. Don’t really like Woody setting himself up to fail tho.. Defending MB and saying he wants to stay.. why do it? And why is the press officer letting those quotes go out? It’s so amateur.
    • He's the biggest shareholder in Barnsley so he couldn't actually buy us without selling his stake in them.  I like your out of the box thinking though, as always 👍
    • It's probably worth remembering that we signed Braithwaite as a Championship club.  I think jamesp is about right in what he has said really.  We signed a player for £9m and whatever he gets paid per week as a Championship club.  You can talk about parachute payments if you like but it doesn't change the fact that we're taking a hit on him after taking a hit on Flint.  It's the right thing to do but it's still *** poor on the part of the club.
