  1. I appreciate people are going to dismiss my information and think I'm full of **** but thought I would post this because of mixed reaction and comments which I fully understand where you are all coming from. I'd love to say where I received the information from and when I was given the nod to post but I can't allow it to get my friend of 20years into trouble, but what I am allowed to say that they seen Larsen in the flesh Monday and Tuesday at Rockcliffe. The situation has now changed slightly at this stage but unfortunately I'm not allowed to post an update to where that transfer i

  2. Sorry everyone, I can't go into too much detail atm with what I have been informed so that's why I'm not responding to everyone's posts. Larsen was there again today and trained. Not sure what the hold up is but he's training

  3. I've just been talking to a mate (big Newcastle fan). He was out at a do over the weekend where Dean Windass was guest speaker on mental health, life after football etc. After the do they had a few drinks. He asked what's going on with Middlesbrough, knowing he used to play for us. Windass said he doesn't find out anything and really doesn't try to get info from any teams but... He was speaking to Josh this week and josh had said he'd been speaking to James tavernier. They're apparently good friends from his time at rangers. Said something like "why is your brother going to a team t

  4. There is no such thing in this league as "guaranteed goals", and we know this from spending over 20m on Assombalonga and Rhodes, two players who were labelled as "guaranteed goals" and ended up stinking our gaff out for years on big money. As a football team we have rarely been set up to get the best out of our strikers. It has been hit and hope football for years. Asking players to just run the channels and get on the end of low % chances and create something for themselves. I genuinely believe no striker in world football would have broken 20 goals in any of our previous 6 seasons of fo

  6. What's everyone's thoughts on today's conference thats on the official website? He didn't really give much away as to transfers but did for the local journos which is interesting. Sorry laid low past few days but thought it was for the best for everyone including myself. Thanks for all the message of support on here and privately, it's appreciated and has made a difference. Intrigued to see who this striker is close to signing... I'm hoping it's a name completely off field again to help lift morale and also it's a permanent transfer. Now it's been confirmed about offe

  9. Everyone begs @diggerlad07 for an update - when he shares something then everyone goes into a meltdown saying it isn't true. Take it for what it is - you don't believe it then fair enough - but @diggerlad07's contributions on this forum have been excellent and I for one are happy reading them and if they don't end up 100% being accurate I have no issue!

  10. I won’t believe it until Graeme Bailey confirms it 3 week after he’s signed and he’s already scored 4 goals for us

  11. Could someone explain how frequent ‘media blackout’ weeks are at Rockcliffe and the significance of them historically please. I’d like to echo the sentiments towards Diggerlad and say I appreciate his input regardless of the Larsen outcome. His posts, along with RafSmog and Lurker, are always the ones I look out for. I for one think the recruitment strategy is heading in the right direction, we seem to be linked with players who I’m excited to see.

  12. Jesus *** Christ. The transfer rumours thread is Pretty painful most seasons but this one is something special. There’s quite a few on here that seriously need to grow the frick up. If someone posts a rumour you have one of three choices in my opinion a) Like it, b) dislike it or c) discount it. With a literal flick of your finger your can scroll past it and your life just keeps on keeping on. There’s no need for the name calling, sarcastic remarks hounding people. If someone truly is on the wind up he will get found out pretty quickly and then get bored with t

  13. Wilder said that Akpom didn't start because of his lack of conditioning. Which is a fair enough reason, but it's Wilder's fault for not involving him in pre-season.

  14. Well that was worth reading 20 plus pages just for the apologies being transmitted. @diggerlad07 your post was elequent and to be fair just what the forum members needed. You carry on old son we are behind you, those who wish to belittle you can simply sod off

  15. Because it was asked earlier, Ben Gibson is not coming back. Muniz will sign next week.

  16. Hi, I've been long time reader on here but decided to take the plunge and post 🙂. My hope on the Digger info and the Larsen transfer is that we agreed a fee late last week but wouldn't get deal completed in time for the opening game. Groningen and Boro have agreed to keep the deal under wraps for this week so that Groningen can't find a replacement without other teams knowing they have had a big cash injection from us. We have set a deadline of Friday for this so we can have Larsen registered in time to play on Saturday. This would explain the media ban at Rockcliffe and the Groninge

  17. I know that strikers have been the biggest topic of discussion this summer but, for me, the midfield has always been the biggest problem. This one image sums up why. This is about 8 seconds before Chris Willock scores. We have 3 midfielders on the pitch, by the way. Look at that massive hole in the middle of the park. That is where Jonny Howson should be, closing down Willock and preventing the goal. So where is he? This is when Willock picks up possession. Howson is in an advanced wide area, jogging behind him, completely out of the game. Neither McGree nor Crooks h

  18. People unhappy with the fact we’re having to wait for signings that clubs won’t sanction until they have replacements, Getting mad at Scott etc. If they are our top transfer targets I would rather we just wait and get them instead of making a signing just to appease fans. We’ve recruited very well so far, I have faith we will do so in the remainder of the window.

  19. Honestly why do people have to spread hate about completely unimportant *** If you don't want to believe possible ITK information; if you don't care about a subject being discussed; if you don't have anything nice to say.... Just move on. Even if you disagree with someone, there are decent ways to open a dialogue or have a reasonable debate without getting nasty. Personally, I love ITK info because I'm a bit of a dreamer, an eternal optimist (I don't know how I ended up supporting Boro either!) but if it doesn't come to fruition...... Well it was fun to imagine how they would've play

  22. Well when Wilder was being asked about Tav and kept saying we want him to stay but every player has his price, we knew what was probably coming. This looks exactly the same.

  23. Personally think it would be hilarious if he did sign and then we banned him anyway.. That's just me though

  24. Oh i know who he is and find your humour somewhat disturbing like your inaccurate spew you have poured into this forum. I respect the likes of Digger who put his head on the chopping block etc. What is your actual aim on this forum? Because your comedy value is certainly not an aim your fulfilling?

  34. Sorry to bring this one up again, but i'm a long time lurker and made an account Sunday morning after seeing this and all the discussion was cracking me up as it's the only thing i've ever been a little bit ITK about. Unfortunately my account didn't get approval Sunday and only just saw it had been activated. So i was actually speaking to these 2 lads and there mate pre-match in.... the Pig Iron beer garden! They were all Cockneys and Arsenal fans. Was mainly speaking to the baldy and he said they were up as one of the other two had family from Middlesbrough and that's why they had come..

  35. I love the fact that if we get Muniz and Larrson to join up with Forss, we could have one of those three-letter acronym strike forces like Barca when they had "MSN". Ours could be "FML", which, to be fair, is what I've been thinking about our strikers for flipping ages.

  38. Yes, but they're a team chasing Europe and finishing in the Top 8 of the Prem. We're a team in the Champ. The gulf of quality is ridiculous.

  39. If nobody is brought in by the weekend it just proves that Wilder thought he was ITK and clearly was just making stuff up! Doesn't it?
