  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. When Scott came we were all dreaming of him finding a Pukki for us, a player who had seriously underwhelmed in his career before Norwich. Now we are having meltdowns because that is exactly what the Club seem to be doing, recruiting Strikers with a less than illustrious past but who on paper statistically may come good. Many were envious of the Brentford model of selling their best players making the Club financially stable whilst replacing them with lower cost signings and still progressing. This to me is part of the remit given to Scott and what he was brought in for and now we are seei

  4. 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

  6. 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

  7. Tav’s an excellent Championship player. He’d been playing very well under Wilder. Hopefully McGree slots in and we use the money well. For anyone slagging off Tav, grow up.

  9. 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

  12. So golf was terrible. Bud back in for Larsen. Greaves, Hull have rejected our bids but he wants to come and it should get done later in the window. Mowatt’s a class signing.

  13. The word around Rockcliffe is that Mowatt is close to signing. He's not been spotted there yet though and he played for West Brom last night, so i'm taking it with a pinch of salt, until he's at least been seen at Rockcliffe

  14. 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!

It is tough and heavy. I don't want to make a fuss about pushing through a transfer, but I was hoping they could have sold me by now. Football is fresh and many clubs are interested. It is frustrating that they are holding on to me and that they are not helpful in this situation. And the club has heard from me that I am disappointed with them - It is frustrating tha

  20. Wilder saying he expects/hopes for a few signings in the next 3-4 days, absolutely no chance of Ikpeazu being part of his plans this season because he just doesn't fit his style of play, but no issues with him as a person. Akpom might be able to work his way back in to the club's thinking if his mentality and willingness is right, but they're still open to selling him. Basically confirmed exactly what many thought about Payero, he wanted to go home and injuries and players ahead of him performing prevented him having a full go of it. Said never say never with him featuring again in t

  21. The lad's contributed 21 goals, scoring 16 of them, in a season and a half and we're calling that all effort, little substance? He's not the best player in the world, he's not your bog standard finisher or indeed a man who can do the business for long stretches but he's better than being attributed to having 'little substance' - he's an important member of this squad, I wouldn't be selling him.

  24. I completely understand where your coming from mate. There is certain posters on here who get satisfaction when your information becomes incorrect or doesn't come to fruition. I come on here for match day threads ad I like to see how other people judge tactics and performance and I used peoples opinions on the social media channel I appeared on. I tend to just pass information on via private DM's to the posters who are genuinely interested or grateful and who are not looking for an argument. I appreciate your posts even when it contradicts to what I have heard. I can vouch

  26. 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.

  27. 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

  28. If Tav goes - he goes with my best wishes. He’s always ran his heart out for our club and if he gets a shot at the Premier league then fair play to him.

  30. 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.

  32. I'm new to this forum so hello. Been following the chat for a while and thought I'd drop my definitely not ITK opinion in. First Tav. Gutted to lose him (also agree with most that the fee seems low but we don't really know). I understand Mcgree is a different type of player but he's a good championship player and would only be in the team in Tav's position. All champ clubs sell their best players to prem clubs. I like our current model of selling players for good money when we already have their replacement in the squad- spence, Tav. Might lenihan be that for fry for next window? It has t

  34. TeaCider24 mentioned a lot of this in the other thread too but this is what I got from it jotted down in my notepad. First of all, does he read the forums? NO. He sounds like he's expecting movement this week, 3-4 in by Saturday is the hope. I'm not convinced by how confident he sounded but that might just be myself. Worth bearing in mind one of those could be Tommy Smith of course, who Wilder couldn't seemingly want to be part of our squad any more. Said he's exactly the right character for the club, the right kind of player to push Jones to be his best and also praised his ver

  36. 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
