If he throws himself at a trickling ball and tries to palm it away, I may be a bit more critical of him. :lol:

This is great. Another permanent transfer. A long term prospect and good competition for our No.1.

Kaminski already looks the part. This lad appears to be no slouch. Allows one of the young GK's to gain some minutes on loan.

If TM can land the LB we need and keep the current squad together I see no reason why they can't give it a real good go.

We're in a stronger position than we have been for many years. I'm not expecting miracles but I see us flirting with the top 6 throughout the season at this rate.

So much encouragement, from a on-field and player personnel perspective. Three clean-sheets in the last three, improving strength at the back, and we still have a strong midfield and a striker who can score at this level of football. Not to mention, we will start seeing some key guys returning, ere long. Indeed, much to be positive about.

As far as obtaining a strong LB, there’s still time. Until then, I have no gripes about Bell, he’s giving it all he’s got.

I agree with Bell. Can't fault the guy for giving 100% but I would like to see more healthy competition for him without having to resort to JRC at LB. I'd much rather see him making a difference further up the pitch :)

Enthusiastic Nacko seems to think we're back in for Pears, the goalkeeper from Middlesbrough... :yeahright:

Because you can never have too many keepers.

Got a Leeds mate who described him as a permanently injured left footed free kick savant, which is not far from describing Charlie Mulgrew to be honest

He was fantastic for Wolves before Leeds got hold of him. Maybe there's a bit of magic left in the tank if he can stay fit?

Hopefully, or at least offer enough of a threat to Amari'i Bell's starting position to keep on his toes and push him to keep improving

Will be good to bring him in and adds some experience and competition in probably our own problem position really. Although having said that Bell has been our best defender for the last 3 games.

All told it'll have been a very good transfer window.

Trybull... promoted to PL.

Douglas... promoted to PL twice with wolves & Leeds.

I’m hoping they can do it again. Rovers appear to be making a serious bid for playoffs or auto promotion. Too bad we lost Travis, And even though Trybull doesn’t play the same position, these additions would give us experienced, solid, Championship players who know what its like to participate in a promotion push.

I like ‘em both. I suppose we hear officially about it in the next few hours...

Mulgrew to Fleetwood apparently almost a done deal... all the best to him, he'll be a great asset at that level.

If we are signing Harvey Elliott, I like to think will be able to stipulate he does something about his hair beforehand
