  1. People going on about him going AWOL and trying to force a move based on absolutely nothing shows the insane level of bias there is against this kid. I don't know what it is, and I wouldn't like to speculate, but the bitterness against him is really embarassing in some sections of our fan base.

  2. They'll be fine as long as they don't sell themselves their own stadium, outbid us for Martyn Waghorn, or post memes of Daniel Levy holding Steve Gibson on puppet strings.

  3. Frankly I would be very tempted to tell Spurs to do one. They have had more than enough time to conclude this deal. Invite others to bid for Spence now. We can’t- and shouldn’t- be held to ransom.

  4. I know we're desperate for him to never play for us again, but surely breaking his ankles is a bit harsh?

  6. Debt is largely irrelevant as long as it can be serviced. It’s like someone buying a £1m house and then saying they’re skint because they’ve now got that debt. They've got plenty of money, deal is £15m up front plus add-ons

  11. Just as long as we get a keeper and 2 strikers in to play in at least 1-2 pre season games before the season starts then there's nothing to worry about imo

  12. Well first of all you don't really know if we've done anything on the striker front. And second why would we want to sign "lesser" strikers when we can sign better strikers as soon as Spence is sold which should be any time now. Of course the ones that have been mentioned can be down to selling Spence. If we're willing to pay say 7 million for Gyokeres and 1 million to loan Armstrong then we probably need to rake in some money first. You sound like you'd rather have a couple in quickly regardless of quality rather than taking time in getting the right ones in.

  14. A basic understanding of finance. You seem like a keen negotiater though, telling the richest, and only confirmed, bidder, to "do one". Let me know when you put your house on the market.

  17. We wouldn’t even be close to the play offs last year without Dijksteele. He really is that good for us.. I honestly think McNair moves to the CDM spot with a back 5 of jones, Dijksteele, Fry / Lenihan, ??, Giles Dijksteele first name on the defence for me 😍

  18. Riley McGree is going to be a key player for Boro this season I feel. It seems like Wilder has a lot of faith in him. He seemed to be everywhere in the first half sometimes playing as a 6, other times getting further forward, a lot of the play going through him.

  21. I'm just going by what one or two of the regular ITK's has said, that we are spending part of the Spence money on Gyokeres. Granted I have no idea whether it's as close as I wrote, but my point stands, that I don't think the club have been sitting on their hands regarding strikers and that our recruitment of quality strikers very much depends on selling Spence first.

  28. Spence hasn't trained this morning but the players are due back out at 2:30, so I'll hopefully get an update then. As you say, he may be at Rockcliffe speaking to the club about his future or undergoing all the necessary fitness tests that all players go through (although if a deal was close, that would seem like a waste of time)

  29. I always thought if he had to he would come back, he is not stupid even if acts immature at times. He won't want to turn up for his new club out of shape and it is only pre-season, plenty of previous players classed as problems have come back and completed good preseasons and still moved on

  30. did it come from the higher echelons of the hierarchy by any chance? you have to be rich to be able to obtain that level of debt, if you don't have the income and or the assets you wont get the loans

  32. What do you think it is racism? Or something else. You might as well come out and say it. Spence is someone that had been portrayed by our club, ex-manager's and local media as someone who was a disruptive influence at the club. It seemed obvious that he was glad to leave and has no desire to come back. I can understand that football fans (who are always biased towards their own club) have a negative impression of him. I don't think it has to be anything sinister. As for players threatening to go on strike to force a move, well that seems to be the default response of a

  34. don't usually work that way as most clubs amortise the players fees and player as an asset over the length of their contract. so you may spend say 10m on a player and give a 5 year contract so they usually booked 2m per year to each years accounts, so they would do the same and book the costs to their accounts like that even if bought before july.

  38. Not sure how anyone can slate McNair really. He’s been solid and professional, which is more than I can say for some. Think he would be perfect in a centre midfield holding role. Especially, the way wilder likes movement from all his defenders. Having paddy in midfield would provide great defensive cover, whilst the centre backs are cross crossing and wing backs flying up and down the pitch. As well as playing in defence when required. 😁 I think sometimes players get a raw deal when they are used in lots of different positions. Look at Wayne Rooney (pls don’t say I’m comparing paddy McNair to

  39. You left off the most important part of the quote! "jack of all trades master of none, but often better than a master of one." And I'd say McNair fits that, if the season had ended at the halfway point everyone would be praising McNair and wanting rid of Dijksteel, but the form flipped toward the end of the season. They both have big things to come and it's plain to see Wilder loves them both.

  41. I have it on good authority that Karius has refused to sign due to the link with Steffen Edberg being to old, he caused a racket and Iversen won’t sign because we scored against him and zack Steffen won’t sign because people keep spelling his name wrong. Luckily everyone has spelled Carl Darlow’s name right and he is due for talks tommorrow, so please, nobody mess up.

  42. I know I'll probably come across as a dickhead here, and it's obviously a tragic and upsetting event, but I don't think a Middlesbrough transfer thread is the place to discuss an ongoing shooting incident.

  43. The exclusivity period for Bassini has just ended after he failed to come up with the proof of funds, so owners now talking to other possible purchasers. If they don’t know who is going to buy club, it still seems strange to get rid of manager - any new owner could get rid of, or keep, existing manager. This leaves them without a manager during main part of transfer window.
