  1. I think there are a few considerations with regards to money. Firstly it seems that we do have a few million to spend, I'm guessing around £2M to £5M although any outgoing fee raising transfers may boost this. Secondly we (or I should say MFC) haven't had any income from gate receipts for six months. OK I know that includes the summer break but there were also the refunds for games behind closed doors at the end of last season so whatever way you look at it money is a very rare commodity in football outside of the Premiership right now. I doubt many clubs can afford to run the entire seas

  2. The information I got was sanogo/ morsey and Woodrow the 1st 2 have materialised ( even though sanogo failed 2nd part of medical). Haven’t spoke to them though since last week though. Still causing Roberts also but Man City want a sale not a loan

  4. Considering it took missing out on Luke Amos, Korey Smith and Williams to get to Morsy I think we ended up with the best option of the lot to be honest. Whether the striker we end up with is better than Moore, Zohore and Sanogo who knows but for me we lucked out by ending up with Morsy as our holding midfielder.

  5. If that’s the case then he needs sacking. Pulis all over again. Rather protect a 1-0 loss than actively trying to get something🤯

  6. Some interesting comments from NW on his striker, could this be Woodrow they're talking about? All comments taken from Joe Nicholson on twitter: Warnock on lack of options off the bench: "When I spoke to Steve later on. We are all aware there wasn't much to change it and we have to put that right in the next couple of weeks." Warnock on transfers: "My main choice is still ongoing, I'm optimistic as we've had this before. We may have some more news on Wednesday. It would have been nice to make three positive changes from the bench but we are what we are." #Boro Warnock on striker

  7. We are in for Zohore but wages a problem. We want both Roberts and Moukoudi back. These deals had already been set up by Woodgate but then put on the back-burner by Warnock. City want £ for Roberts in a perm, we want a loan with view to a perm. We are also in for a player from France who can play upfront and wide right, but I cant get a name. We have turned down the option to sign Murphy. Not sure if it was a perm or loan but he was offered to us. Nothing on Woodrow. Not sure of this is because it is cards close to chest or not. Things more cagey than usual.

  8. I would certainly say that Johnson should have been off as he was appalling with the ball on Friday. But even if you left him on but switched the shape then you could say you were trying something. To try nothing should never be accepted by fans, especially ours, as we've seen plenty of that recently.

  11. Hi all. New to the forum, although I've been a 'lurker' on the 'other well known message-board' for the last twenty odd years. Looking forward to chatting with you all! I'm a Boro exile now living in North Yorkshire, although I have been a season ticket holder since 1998. Got my lad into the Boro a few years ago too and we now sit in the lower west just behind the home manager dugout. Had some fantastic times supporting the Boro - the best being the Carling Cup final and Brighton home game. It's desperately sad to see how far back we've dropped over the last four years, especially as

  16. Ross Stewart? If he was his main target all along would be a twist and a half to be fair, Warnock happily let Dykes go to QPR he was the best shithouse striker up there get the feeling this is from Europe personally.

  17. Our wing-backs were rubbish, we had two potential replacements on the bench for one side, we could have pushed Dijksteel further up and brought Fry on for Spence to change the other side. It very much does sound like Warnock was trying to make a point which is pathetic, whichever way you look at it. He doesn't so far seem to come across as an excuses man, the way Pulis did, but this is very much in that territory. I sincerely hope it doesn't continue.

  18. Not really anything ground breaking but just been told we are still trying for Kenneth Zohore. We only want him on loan though and West Brom are keen to sell. Warnock also wants Patrick Roberts back, but again we want a loan so will depend if he (or Man City) get a better offer before the end of the window. Not a lot else happening, or at least that my mate would tell me anyway.

  21. I’m praying we bring in a right-back or move Dijksteel to right wing-back. I personally think Spence is a liability, defensively he’s so poor and only isn’t exposed more because of his pace at times. (His only real asset). Shocked there was no mention of him after the Watford game as for me he looked the weakest link barring Saville.

  24. I'd be surprised if it was Zohore because of the strength of the rumours linking him with Sheff Wed and Warnock sounding quite confident of this potential signing coming here. Not saying we couldn't get Zohore, but it'd surely be far more up in the air than Warnock made it sound if it was him.

  26. Ibrahima Niane and Luke McCowan were both linked with Cardiff under Warnock. A lot of championship teams have been scouting Sissoko as well. He is apparently ready to move this summer. I would have thought we are looking domestically otherwise it might be another fortnight for quarantine.

  28. If you're the sort of person who looks at stats [I am] then no, as he has only scored double figures once in a season in his career. If you're the sort of person who doesn't look at stats, then I have no idea.

TBF only WIng and Browne had a chance of getting on, and to bring Browne off he woud have to have taken Tav Britt or Fletch off Coulson has barely played in the last 3 weeks due to illness Fry has only played 60 mins against Shrewsbury since the end of last season then your down to Bola and the young lads - and they are still to prove themselves

  38. We outbid Cardiff/Stoke/QPR on Moore's wages, matched Brentford's 1.5 million bid for Goode, I assume matched Bristol's 2 million pound deal for Williams and have loaned in a GK whose apparently on 35k a week! Zohore is on north of 30k a week way beyond the 20k range we were offering Moore/Sanogo and the difference with Zohore to Bettinelli is West Brom have found club(s) willing to cover almost all of it and apparently convinced Monk to put an option to buy in as well. The only deals we've baulked at is Zohore and Phillips for valid reasons in both cases imo. I don't think lack of m

  39. His passing is too inconsistent to ever be a #10 at this level and he doesn't have the physical capabilities to be a box to box so he's stuck inbetween the 2 positions and if he doesn't get the ball near the opposition box consistently he's basically useless. I don't know the answer for Wing there's plenty of examples of players in this league who are similar early years Bradley Johnson is the one that I compare him to a little bit selfish at times, can be a passenger or a match winner. He has a great shot and decent positioning around the box but his passing range and consistency o

  40. Having given the game a few days thought I still think the following: 1. We were slow 2. No creativity 3. Boring 4. Fairly organised in the first 2/3 of the pitch 5. Basically Pulis mk.2

  41. I actually think he might have done a job behind the strikers in our 3-4-1-2 against Watford. The problem is you would have had to take off Tav to put him there so overall we might have been less effective as an attacking force. Or maybe we should have a striker off and Tav and Wing behind Britt/Fletch and go 3-4-2-1. That all being said, I still think our biggest issue in that game was the wingbacks so whilst it might be worth a go going forward, it probably wouldn't have changed a thing on the night.

  42. I think they are going to play against very different teams to Liverpool but goodness me, the only team that looked like winning for long periods today were Leeds. They never took the lead but they never stopped going. 37 to go but if they perform like that every week, they'll be comfortably mid table. But then, if Liverpool defend like that for another 37 games then they'll really struggle to retain the title.

    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
    • Have you heard any names of our transfer targets or which players we're most likely to cash in on? The Gazette seem very keen on discussing Darlow and Lenihan so it seems that there's some substance there.
