Wait so other clubs are struggling with money, but yet still signing players and here we are doing nothing. It’s either one rule or the other.

The blonde in the red dress who's on now is mighty fine though.

Aren't we under so sort of temporary embargo and until we get the green light we can't sign players anyway.

Preston made what could be a good loan signing, if we ever get any money again we need to get their head of recruitment - always sign good young players and sell on for good money, recruit well from the lower leagues and are doing well in the league some would say punching above their weigh.

 

Just signed Lukas Nmecha from man City on a season loan 2 appearance for city but played for England from under 16 up to under 21 pacy winger/striker would give us an option and some pacy on the flanks.

Preston always seem to be able to bring in some quality loan players. Wish we had people capable of finding and bringing in exciting prem players on loan.

Just the EFL stopping us signing players to give the rest of the league a chance lol

Does that effect loan deals too? Still hoping we can bring in a couple of loanees, if possible, during the loan window. But I don't know if we can or not?

I’m glad the window shuts at 5pm today coz I don’t have to waste time staying up till 11pm waiting to hear some Wednesday news.  Can just get home and check the website, any news? No? Great, we can watch Michael portillo’s train journeys

I think the way the EFL are handling our situation is a total joke. I mean public statements can be made with regards to Birmingham plus they are being allowed to sign up to 5 players yet it’s all cloak and dagger with regards to us? It’s bizarre to say the very least?

Add Brentford to the list now and of course the holy grail of proper football clubs, Burnley

My understanding of it is until we get the ok, we can't do nothing. Birmingham had similar. then told yes you are under an embargo and these are the restrictions (10 max wage I believe) being one of them. if we not under an embargo then guessing we will loan in and out a lot.

Probably not wanting to get rid of a whole load of players just yet as not sure of the situation. and the ones surplus to requirements no one will touch anyway due to there wages. 

A real tough situation we are in.

 

Also there will be no big names leaving today unless it is for silly money.  doesn't work for us otherwise.

I understand the situation, what I can't get my head round is why it takes from April to now to tell us what we can and can't do?

Doesn’t look like Brum are having too much luck at the moment.....

 

Birmingham City’s move for Swedish striker Joel Mumbongo has fallen through after the EFL blocked the transfer, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Mumbongo has been training with Blues recently and agreed terms on a contract at St Andrew’s but they haven’t been able to complete a deal for the highly-rated 19-year-old.
