  1. And therein lies the point... We’re in book balancing mode for the foreseeable. Mowbray v2.0. Yes, a better/more experienced manager could get us higher up the table, but not top two or winning the playoffs with our unbalanced squad. Hopefully by the summer this ‘clear out’ project will nearly be done and we can look forward to rebuilding. Soon we’ll be able to attract a talented manager by offering a decent transfer budget. In the meantime it’s going to be rough.
  2. Ravelinho has arrived. Reckon he’ll do alright for us like.
  3. Thanks for the info as always. To me this feels like a classic Boro ‘we tried, but couldn’t get it over the line’ deal. Sounds like too little too late... but hoping for the best.
  4. Leeds’ link to Britt just had to be agent talk and never serious...
  5. Let’s remember this is MFC recruitment... we’re nailed on to sign another CM to play CB 😆
  6. I feel Dyche has too much ego to let Gibson go without us paying through the nose for him. For me the only way this gets over the line is if it’s a Steve Gibson special - an ‘undisclosed fee’ that he’s magicked up from somewhere on the last day of the window after Ben Gibson refuses every other option. Should go to the wire this one!
  7. I had to sit with the Pompey fans at Fratton Park and my ‘mate’ lifted up my hoodie to reveal the Boro shirt underneath. Had to make a quick exit 😄
  8. On my way to sing my heart out for the lads. Pie and pint report to follow. UTFB
  9. Would anyone be kind enough to list the targets we didn't quite get over the line for one reason or another? Would be really interested to see it. Maybe we'll go back in for some in January.
  10. I’m guessing the plan is to get our width from the full backs Liverpool style, so I’m not expecting us to target wingers as a priority this window.
  11. I actually think we'd have been 15-18 points worse off without Randolph last year. He saved us, literally, so many times. Mejias is fine for a backup, but he's not good enough to be our No 1. The opposition just target and bully him as he can't catch or punch crosses.
  12. I'd pay double for a shirt without any sponsors, especially when they are betting sites or pawn shops. At least the kid's shirt doesn't have that problem.
  13. If 433 turns out to be Woodie's preference, it feels like we're a few players off a decent team: ------------------ Randolph ------------------ -- ??????? --- Ayala ---- Fry --- ??????? -- ------ Howson --- McNair --- Wing ------- --- ??????? ----------------- Tavenier --- ------------------ Fletcher-------------------- I'd sell Britt to fund the players we need to pull off whatever Woodie's vision is. Ayala/Flint aren't amazing, but should be good enough at this level to partner Fry. Keane isn't going to allow any 'miserable so-and-sos' so I can't see Braithwaite featuring. I'd rather develop Tav in that position.
  14. Woodie is saying all the right things; promoting youth, attacking football, honesty with transfer budgets. All the things we've been asking for. There's a clear lack of experience in the appointments, but what the hell, we'll be giving it a go and come the first match of the season the Riverside will have a buzz about it again. UTB.
  15. Just have a feeling Jokanovic will come off and be announced on Monday June 3rd. He got Watford and Fulham promoted, so why not us! Woody as #2, giving him a few more attempts to pass his badges ?
  16. Oh thank *** - he’s finally gone!
  17. It’s like the opposite of Christmas. Instead of “has he been?” it’s “has he ***ed off yet?”
  18. Really? Would our club mascot need to become a can of tangy refreshing beverage for contractural reasons? All the Red Bull clubs have red bull as a mascot and all the club logos feature the two red bulls. I’d like their investment and strategy but I don’t think I could stomach a logo change.
  19. Can we all spare a thought for Roary the Lion who would be on the dole
  20. Red Bull have done a great job with all their clubs and we fit their buying profile. I can see this happening and I can see it being really fantastic. UTRB!
  21. The best news of the day is that after the match there’ll be only be 6 more games to go... Then there’s only 540 more minutes of the most soul destroying dire b*ll*cks we’re hopefully ever going to witness. Counting down the minutes...
