United had all Summer to get that deal done, why have a deadline if clubs can still sign players after it?

Wonder if we would have been granted a time extension if we needed it for vossen. No chance

I suppose it's like a shop closing, but letting the customers already in there go to the tills...

 

 

I'm thinking the 'under the radar' signing must have been defensive minded.

After all, the shopping list at the start of the day seems to have been:

Vossen

Wildschut

Baker

Mr. X

A keeper (if Steele left)

 

We were still looking to get 'Mr. X' done at around 4pm yesterday, and hadn't sold any attacking players. I don't need to post how many attackers we'd have had on the books if Baker had have come, but it's enough to have not needed another. My money would be on a deep lying midfielder/centre back cover - as I said earlier, a similar style to Chalobah.

One thing for sure - Gibson certainly has played his part with the transfer activities. Over to you, Karanka!

It would have been nice to identify the under the radar player so hopefully names will come to light (with a view of the January window)

The idea is that we don't identify this player so that we can continue to chase him under the radar. If the name gets out then it alerts other clubs to his availability.

 

I suspect we may well be going back in for him as soon as the loan window re-opens. Kind of makes the transfer windows a bit of a joke though when you can use the "emergency" loan system to all but sign a player and make it official in January though! :D

AV mentioned depending on squad performance we might pursue the under the radar player as soon as the emergency window opens. "@andyrubble666 may be revived but if do next week can only be 93 days. If left to Jan can get rest of season. Suppose it depends on results"

 

Separately, in his blog he said "But right-back is now covered with Fredericks in to compete with Abella for that slot – but Boro suddenly seem thin in central defence. With Gibson out and Woodgate making only a brief cameo so far (an having what is most generously described as patchy fitness) there was only Omeruo and Ayala with Hines as cover. And after a poor start to the season at the back (and with Ayala dropping a clanger or two) what had seemed a strong department now looks less than convincing. So that area may need beefing up if Hines leaves."

 

I am not sure if he was told or he is just guessing on this one, but he seems to believe an additional player is required for central defence, putting 2 and 2 together, I would say the mystery player is a central defender but will only be signed possibly depending on injuries and defensive performance.

    • I see comments referencing COVID being a disruption to preparation which I don’t deny has, but it is not the whole reason for our inconsistency. We are no different to teams in all divisions, and we are well aware COVID exists, and if we haven’t then we should have mitigation in place.  Inconstancy has been more down to team selection and tactics then COVID and the fact, well apart from the two pack leaders, anyone can virtually beat anyone right now. It doesn’t help when players are not all firing at the same time but there is more of a willingness now to work towards a common goal then previous. Look I do now believe they believe and want to make it happen.   In realty we could easily have at least another 4 to 6 points on the board and equally have the same less points so overall we are doing fairly well. OK watching us play is not for the faint hearted but that’s may be the passion in us wanting more. Listen I would rather have a win then 3 boring daws sitting on our goal line.  I did not expect to be where we are and will gladly be content if we remain there about and possibly sneak a play off spot.   
    • I agree, all 3 should have had their contract ripped up. 
    • And this one is for The Jew and his mandatory comment ... 
    • After a great away win v Forest is it now time to have a visit by our old friends Daniel Ayala, Stewart Downing, Ainsley Pears and Tony Mowbray and the rest of Blackburn. Blackburns last outing was a 1-1 draw v Stoke.  They had a game at Ewood Park postponed last Tuesday v Swansea, cause they didn't invest in a nice pitch rain coat like the Sheriff of Nottingham did, so the pitch was moister than an oister. Blackburns star striker this season is Adam Armstrong, so if we can man mark the living daylight out of him, then we should be able to beat this lot.  The viking prediction is a 3-1 win for the Boro, if we can play just 80 % as good as v Forest.  It's time to be consistent, cause we can be, and get into them play off spots!  Time for some  1: Team and formation?  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... 6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? 8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  View from the other site: https://www.brfcs.com/forums/forum/4-blackburn-rovers-fans-messageboard  
    • @diggerlad07 said we looked at him in summer as well but we were never going to compete with PL wages. Would be a great signing. Genuine competition for Paddy and Fry which neither currently has.
