  1. This is such sad news, I'm not the best with words, but the oneBoro Forum would certainly not be what it is today without the help and dedication from VB; from the days of 606 and the Evening Gazette forum, to helping make everyone feel welcome and providing ITK snippets along the way. RIP VB 😞

  2. He was of the main reasons why I moved over from 606. When VB wrote something, everyone took note, which I think is the best compliment someone could be given on a forum like this. RIP VB.

  4. Absolute gentleman, the biggest Boro supporter around and his legacy lives on in this website, oneboro wouldn't be around as it is today without his input in the early days. Such sad news.

  5. Just an update from a journalist from South America, he does only have 1.5k followers so how true I don’t know. Mentions in another tweet that it was Neil Bauser and Leo at the meeting.

  7. I assumed Crooks was signed with Saville money. Been reported in media and those ITK on here that we got £1.5m for Sav We spent £1.1m on Crooks.

  8. As much as I would love a Brazilian here, McNair is too valuable to sell. I think most managers would have him as a first choice midfielder even if Warnock doesn’t. He’s also very comfortable at the back. If we sold him we would need another midfielder and another defender to get quality like him in both positions would probably cost more than his selling price

  9. I wouldn't sell McNair unless we were desperate for money, he's one of the first names on the teamsheet for me.

  10. I agree but him going could fund two or three incoming and right now we are short on numbers which is why I suspect that considering the financial impact of Covid somebody will have to pay the Piper.

  13. Its the "arguably" bit that is the problem for me with Paddy. Definitely versatile, he is arguably our best CB but isn't, arguably our best Midfielder but isn't, arguably our best set piece taker but they rarely amount to anything. He is very good at a lot of things but not outstanding at any. Without doubt he shows signs of being exceptional occasionally but over the years he has been here its all come in fits and starts. Much of that in fairness is down to successive poor Management rather than just the player himself but at some point he needs to nail down what he really is.

  14. I'm not trying to join in with getting him sold but wasn't there some stuff about us being open to selling him at the start of the summer? Or was it just that there was the odd link with him and a move?

  15. @SzilardNemethsCurtains Not trying to sell anybody, just wondered what people thought, don't see him starting in a back 4, with added CB cover he may not get into the 3 either, CM is well stocked and we need funds for attacking players, hence the curiosity in what people thought

  16. That's kind of what I would have thought too. Whatever we made or basically didn't have to spend any more on Saville could have gone into the Crooks deal. We've also lost a big chunk off our wage bill this summer with Britt and Fletch going, I reckon Saville was on more than Crooks has come in on too. I just don't see any reason to think we're in sell-to-buy territory yet. Certainly not selling the best players we have to fund moves and surely we're not going in to spend a great deal of money right now without knowing for a fact that: a) We can afford to OR; b) We have something

  17. Well we've already signed Crooks so if we needed to sell to buy him that was a bit of a dumb thing to do. That's surely not a realistic assumption to make? As for Ciaron Brown or Kean Bryan, again, they're not improving the first 11 as far as I understand it so why bother selling someone who is pretty emphatically one of our best players (including having the prestigious oneBoro Player of the Season 2020/21 award to his name) to fund moves for them? I'd rather keep McNair than bring in 1 or 2 players who aren't expected to start anywhere near as many games as McNair does. Not to ment

  20. It amazes me that any poster would be looking to sacrifice Paddy. To me he is in the top 3 of best players we have at the club

  21. I agree with all of this although I do think Paddy's deliveries are quite good, we just didnt have anyone decent on the end. I hope that will be different already with Ikpeazu and Crooks in the box this year.

  22. Nah i agree to a point but you know what you get with Paddy, and we need a few of these in the team. Im all for the exciting players but not at the expense of someone like him. That's just me though

  24. Very sad news. Was always exciting to see that green Vectorboro post as it generally meant some team or juicy transfer news. Seemed like a genuinely nice guy too at a time when the forum was at its peak. Rip.

  25. I suppose if one of those is then injured, then McNair can step into that gap. But personally I'm a little sceptical of his ability to play in a back 4 and I do think we can find better for those positions. Midfield is an interesting point, Warnock has mentioned he likes the 5-2-3, which would probably see McNair deployed on the left of a back 3. But where I see potential for thinking McNair is surplus is in the 4-3-3 (Warnock has said he likes). If that is our go to formation for the season, judging on the line-ups last season and who we've brought in (and looking to bring in Payero), I

  27. Think even when he plays as a CM he plays as an attacking one anyway nowadays, so it's basically the same thing really with him. He's going to be in the box whether he's running there from deep or from near the front. Yeah the Ameobi one I'm hoping is simply it's lagging behind after the self isolation and it's nothing serious.

  32. Not necessarily you, I understand why you pose the question. He was the one player who played every game last season, I think he will be an important figure once again especially if we play with a back 3

  36. Just for arguments sake his going would likely fund Crooks who has just arrived and also Ciaron Brown and Kean Bryan on the payroll thereby more adequately covering the defence and midfield. I'm not saying lets get rid but I am being realistic in that the money to strengthen the squad has to come from somewhere and we can't be expecting all these new arrivals at zero cost.

  38. I suspect the Club may sell for a few million less than that to realise some funds. That said he is contracted until 2024 so they may hold out if an interested party came sniffing. Question is who would be looking at him?

  39. 100% agree. I'd love us to sign a Brazilian with a cool name as much as the next fan... but selling any of our best and proven players to fund complete unknowns would be nuts!

  44. There's always a team that look dead and buried before the season even starts, and it's usually the same story, that they have a handful of first team players, a few kids, and a couple of old fellas doing keepy ups in the park who looked handy. They will get signings in, by hook or (more accurately) by crook. They'll probably still get relegated, mind.

  46. Agree with all of that apart from the last sentence. 100% the aim for us should be and will be playoffs. However, this is the same as probably 14 teams in the league. Not getting in the playoffs, although would be disappointing, imo wouldn’t be a big failure. I don’t think we have the players to be deemed a failure if we don’t get top 6. Our squad is also very small with next to no depth if a few injuries occur. Im not being negative as I also feel we have a good as good a chance to get playoffs then other half of the championship battling for it. That’s the beauty of this league, every clu

  47. So, with less than two weeks until their opening Championship fixture, Derby County have made 0 signings, have no senior CBs on a deal with the club, have had no more news about their proposed takeover, have a senior squad of about 12 players, are under a transfer embargo and are still waiting to submit 3 accounts to the EFL. If they don't get relegated this season I will be absolutely STUNNED.

  48. I am not usually one to get nervous over transfers as i have a “what will be will be mentality” but that will go out window if Payero does not come. The last time I was gutted a transfer had fallen through was when Subotic failed a medical as I was very excited to see someone of his calibre joining us. Reminded me of Robson/McClaren era. Payero also gives me the same sense of nostalgic-ness. (I am not sure if that is even a word but lets just pretend it is)

  49. Plus, Martin Payero is an anagram of “Repairman Tony”, which sounds as Italian AF. Doomed, I say!! 😭😭😭
