  1. Gibson doing a Gibson. Having another punt, pushing for Bolasie, this Argentinian and money available for a couple more. (Not a lot though) Spence going for £5m

  2. Haven’t posted much as I got the person in trouble with the club. but Brazilian lad is in talks still With the club all about agreeing fee but he’s definitely interested. Spence looks Like he is on his way out a fair bit of interest him but fee could sort our summer transfers out. 2 offers turned down for fry and he’s told club he won’t leave!

  3. “He is really looking forward to moving to Middlesbrough or the mighty Boro I hear they are called. They have a history with South America and are the best at samba outside of Rio De Janerio is my understanding. Personal details are sorted when they added weekly Parmo’s to his salary can’t wait to do the lambada in the Claggy Mac with the pretty girls. On the pitch he plays midfield but doesn’t like running So Mr Warnock style of play is perfect as they tend to bypass that part of the pitch most of the time “ **From Google Translate ** Take it as true and please don’t fact check it👍

  4. You are making it out that Steve Gibson personally scouts the players and signs them. That’s not the case at all. By all accounts we now have a South American scouting network via Leo and his contacts over there. It would be absolutely negligent of Gibson not to look into using that network. Warnock appears quite happy to me to be able to avail of these players. By saying we are after one or two is him trying to dampen down the expectations a bit. I think it’s fantastic to have a dual approach to recruitment and not be stuck in the domestic market only. I’m pretty sure that there was a lot of

  6. Centuries ago Villages had ducking stools whereby if the person drowned they were innocent and if they lived they were guilty and sentenced to death. Nowadays not much has changed sadly. Idiots posting stuff with zero information or in possession of any facts whatsoever just fuelling idle gossip. If he is guilty then let the law deal with it and ensure he gets a fair trial and whatever punishment is meted out to him. If he is innocent then this has to be his and his family's worse nightmare. If he was guilty and gets off because of the tweets and impossibility of a fair trial then the vic

  8. I've never heard of Payero before today, haven't seen one video of him playing football, and I'm not 100% sure what position he plays in. But I, for one, will be ******** fuming if we don't sign him 😡😡😡

  9. Looking at what Matt Crooks has said in his interviews and again we have a player who mentions the Premier League. I know some are just trying to be realistic about our chances of making it there and I don't disagree with those, still need to be proved that we can actually make it with this manager and this squad. But I still can't get over the fact some don't think promotion is even the aim or that even if it is, it's just some kind of pipe dream we tell people about to get them excited. Promotion is the target, to me that's obvious with Warnock in charge but also all the murmu

  12. Steve Gibson can win: He can get the club to operate with a robust, long-term strategy. My reservations are regarding his two major flaws: he likes to take over control when he shouldn't, and makes decisions without any sort of long-term strategy. He does have a track record of getting too involved in recruitment decisions (Alves, Woodgate, Downing, Rhodes etc) so it wouldn’t be a surprise if history has repeated itself. It’s notable that signing players from Argentina and Brazil goes against everything that Warnock has done in his previous promotions, and Warnock’s quotes clearly show th

  16. I would sacrifice England going out to Italy in this final on Sunday 22-0, absolutely embarrassed by the Italians, just to breathe the same air as United, Liverpool and Arsenal on a yearly basis. Not in the way perhaps the likes of Sunderland did, you want to be at least competitive enough to guarantee staying up the way we did for most the 00s. But having that base to build from as a club, I'd have England embarrassed every sodding year just to see us playing against the best 19 teams in the country every week. I miss it so much.

  17. How many here dont rate Bola and Dijksteel? They were bought from League One ... Just saying ... Players should not be measured by where from they are bought ... They should be measured how they do on and off the pitch, to do their best for the club that bought them ... So I always welcome new players, regardless of where they come from ... And then I make my own opinion, when I see them play ... 😎

  18. Been told we’ve set our limit at £14k a week for new signings. Fletcher had agreed to stay on that then Watford came in, £25k a week for 5 years so understandably chose them. I should get an update on new signings on Friday

  21. Payero might take a while to get used to the English game, he might not settle here, he might hate England or he might be rubbish. But for someone that has criticised the club a lot on here in the last few years I'm glad we are thinking outside the box a bit.

  27. For me personally its what it shows about our direction rather than the player himself. Amongst all of these championship/league 1 links, this is one that shows we are thinking outside the box somewhat at least. It just gives me more hope for the future.

NW: Is he at least a footballing neanderthal as per my preference? Scout: No boss. NW: Then why the **** do you think I'd be interested? Scout: He's a bit of a **** with a questionable attitude and checkered history, boss. NW: Perfect! Get him signed lad.

  38. Few excellent posts regarding the final and the tournament as a whole. On the pitch Southgate got basically every decision he made spot on leading upto the final. Even the decision to go to a wingback system for the final paid dividends almost instantly. That first half I felt as a team we were on top, pressed high up (and effectively) and largely looked very comfortable, limiting Italy to long range shots. 2nd half however is where for the first time this tournament Southgate got it wrong in my opinion. Our press dropped off massively and we began to retreat deeper and deeper as th

Lets do a bit of a timeline of how it has unfolded: - Man raises funds for the young German girl (who was also abused and called a Nazi and a slag widely on social media) - Man gets called a creep and paedophile for helping her (yes there are far more appropriate charitable causes) - People knock up a fake porn site screenshot purporting to be of him with a "the younger the better" quote and scroll through his Twitter and Instagram to look for anything that, taken out of context, could look creepy, which wasn't that hard considering that his character had already been assassinat

  45. I think for me it's partly about the connection to the area too. I don't hold much connection to the entirety of England but I love coming from Middlesbrough, I've lived and worked in a few places around the country and I still remember 5.5 years ago when I was living and working in London, I hit a real brick wall. I was really unhappy, I'd just moved jobs and I felt like an imposter working amongst people that I just couldn't make a strong connection with. Interestingly, there was one lad who I worked with who I remember quite well during the 3-4 months we worked together, was a Romanian

  46. Between Kadeem Harris, Junior Hoilett and Sammy Ameobi, they scored a whopping total of 5 league goals in 91 games between the 3 of them last season. Again, typical Warnock and Boro signings. No inventiveness. Just signing any old run-of-the-mill championship winger who has been gaining contracts year after year based on one good season 5 years ago and is now ageing and has no resale value. And we wonder why our debt is so high...

  48. How depressing. Season hasn’t even kicked off yet and we have been written off already. Why not give whatever players we sign a chance. Bola is a great example. He was well and truly written off and he’s probably one of the 1st names on the team sheet
