  1. I've read that Steve Gibson should be advised not to attend the game, and some Boro fans supporting that, I think we as Boro fans should protect Mr Gibson and make him feel most welcome in his own home
  2. Would anyone take karanka as Woody's dof? Might sound like mission Impossible, karanka bought wisely when he was allowed to and would be on hand to offer coaching advice.
  3. Karanka's becoming more and more of an appealing option!
  4. Stendel into 8s, everyone else has drifted slightly
  5. Humpty, spot on imo regarding Gibsons contract situation, he signed a 5yr last summer, which will have taken into account his status at the time, he'd played 100 times for us, was one of our biggest assets, young player with most potential, was on the fringes of the national team. Although he proved he's premiership quality, personally I don't think he's done much in the last year other than raise his profile to outsiders, everybody associated with the club knew then how good he was/is and that he would make the step up to premier league level, so it came as no surprise, a 5 year deal when sig
  6. He was out for 2 months with a calf injury and has had hamstring problems too
  7. It's noticeable that he doesn't say 'if the club sign a striker', but names Assombalonga specifically. I get the feeling it might be quite close. If we sign him it will be a record transfer fee... was chatting with some boro fans at York yesterday and we will be paying 16mil to get him... apparently His injury record is a big concern for me, no doubting his ability but 69 games (league and cup) in 3 full championship seasons isn't good, it makes him a big risk imo, and a risk that intensifies as his banded figure/fee increases.
  8. NEWS: Middlesbrough show interest in signing defender from Championship rivals Reading #UTB #ReadingFC Link http://the72.co.uk/85938/middlesbrough-track-reading-defender/
  9. Does anyone think it could be a tactic to sell first and get best market price on outgoing players rather than overloading the squad and having to settle for lower fees and/or risk being left with unwanted wage bills?
  10. Not even sure he has returned to pre season... don't know anything regarding it but he is usually very active on social Media and is quiet and never spotted him or CDP who I know has been told to actively find a new club The club were raving about him around the time of his signing, building the anticipation by making it known that he'd turned down an huge pay rise that would have made him the highest earner in Sporting Gijon's history, while acknowledging he was still recovering from his ACL. Bit of a strange one, must have been highly regarded at his previous club so has to be too so
  11. Look like your having a good ole chinwag to yourself there pal, you alright? :)
  12. Apparently we've got back nearly all of what we paid for him, not heard an exact figure as yet.
  13. Not in the Championship. In the Championship, Ramirez promoted us. I think that's a slight exaggeration, fabbrini more than played his part in the first half of the season.
  14. Except their manager & their entire backroom staff of course. Coaches and assistants often follow a manager to a new club, I don't get how that's translating to having tunnel vision because someone on twitter has linked us with green. These links are going to happen naturally, it's called *** poor or lazy journalism, like us needing a cb results is us linked with Bartley and Jansson etc. No need to have a meltdown! holy *** it was just a joke jesus christ. Fair enough, saying u don't want us becoming middleeds Utd and calling him pedantic don't come across as a joke thoug

  16. TuttoMercatoWeb are usually good with transfers, and Jose did single out De Roon for a lot of praise when we played them. Well they also say he is earning 40k and is available at 8.8 million which I find very hard to believe. Even the Gazette are saying today Boro will be looking at 12 million and doesn't even mention the release clause which TeamTalk somehow know exists. £40k is pretty much what I'd expect him to be on. £8.8m is €10m so that could be true and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he does have a relegation release clause, he was a big money signing, he will have wanted a
  17. Why would they pay a fee? It's only domestic transfers that require compensation for under 24 players. They require a small fee, Dembele was £500k I think when they got him from Fulham I'm certain dembele was on a free which is also what transfermarkt says. I haven't seen anywhere that a young player out of contract requires a fee when it's an international transfer. And who sets the fee? Is 1 pound enough? Leeds can't do a thing. Compensation for development, agreed by clubs, I'm sure Fulham agreed it through gritted teeth. Found this while browsing if it's any help: Sol
  18. Wow! He went from 34 to 32 in just 2 small paragraphs...
  19. If I was Steve Gibson I'd market him around, garner as much as we can in terms a fee, get Bens agent in the office, sit him down, help him understand he's here to be extorted by placing a shotgun on the table then proceed to explain that Ben under no circumstances signs a contract for longer than 3yrs. Sell him to the highest bidder, add the takings to the current kitty to strengthen the team so we can smash the league, establish ourselves as a premier league team for 2 seasons and sign Ben (now in his prime) back on a free. Somewhere a***st all that would be the handing over of a brown
  20. Considering that's going to be pretty much our 2nd 11, I'd have a couple of quid on that side making the playoffs.
  21. You're a closet Gestede fan really aren't you :D
  22. We have been tracking him for 2 years haven't we...? Is he getting game time at Leipzig? He appeared in 25 games last year but only had 617 minutes total. He had half that in only 5 games in the Champo before being sold. Sure I read somewhere that only 5 of those 25 were as starter.
  23. I reckon we should just play Gestede out wide with his blistering pace. At the risk of being called a bully, well played :) Being called a bully?? Why cos I contested someone getting personal?? There's always the FMTTM site if that's your thing.
  24. I reckon we should just play Gestede out wide with his blistering pace. Nah mate, just cos he's quicker than Bamford doesn't make him as quick as Traore, who as it happens is a more appropriate fit for the position. You probably planning on playing Bamford in central midfield as well are you?? :D
  25. When will people get realistic about potential targets, Burke has been liked with both Huddersfield and Brighton and I'm sure there'll be interest from more established premier league teams, he'd get plenty of game time at either of those clubs. Heard Ronaldos available too :rolleyes:
