  1. Being ill tonight doesn't necessarily dictate he'll be ill tomorrow. I'm sure there are plenty of things that could take him out for one day or they just don't want to run the risk of him playing with. Think you're just thinking to much into it. I tweeted Jonathan Taylor earlier and he confirmed that Chapman was ill. So nothing to worry about at all.
  2. Can't see this one happening. Got the striker now. It'll either be a big statement striker signing or nothing. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-3401614/Manchester-City-boss-Manuel-Pellegrini-send-forward-Bersant-Celina-loan-Derby-Middlesbrough-interested.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490
  3. As someone who sees more of Newcastle and Sunderland than I do of Boro these day I'm hoping they stay in the premier league. All three in the top flight is how it should be. Then the bragging rights can be decided. I'm fairly confident Newcastle will be alright. More quality than Sunderland. If the Mackems do stay up it will be through the magic of Big Sam. Nothing more, nothing less. But I hope we will all be in the prem next season.
  4. I'd like to see us go for Charlton's Johann Berg Gudmundsson. They're struggling at the bottom of the league so I'm sure he'd be up for switching relegation fight for promotion challenge. And he shouldn't cost the earth although I'm not sure to be honest. Also has a year and half's experience of the league. Plays predominantly on the right but he's left footed so could play out on the left. But he can also play any of the forward positions. He's who I think we should be looking at anyway.
  5. Albert Adomah walked past me at Darlington station this evening at about 6pm. Anyone have any idea why he would be there so soon after playing an hour earlier?
  6. Anyone think Hull, with the money they are going to get for Brady and Chester, might have a go at trying to sign Rhodes?
  7. Victor Valdes anyone? He is Spanish after all.
  8. Don't think the report from Spain on Stuani has been posted: http://www.sport.es/es/noticias/espanyol/christian-stuani-interesa-middlesbrough-4342828 Translation: The Uruguayan Christian Stuani has on the table a tempting offer Middelsbrough. The coaching Aitor Karanka club and currently plays in the English Championship would be interested in signing the player to strengthen his forward line. The English club has offered to Espanyol almost 4 million euros to sign the player. For his part, if he accepts the offer, Stuani almost double the record that currently has with Espanyol. It is a tempting financial offer. However, it would be a small step back on a sporting level since happen to play in one of the most important leagues in the world to play in the English second division.
  9. Have West Ham just signed Stewart Downing's replacement? Dimitri Payet has joined them from M***ille.
  10. But if that car could be your ticket to your dream destination wouldn't it be worth it? Especially when there's a brand new Lamborghini (or insert your own flash motor here) waiting for you when you arrive there.
  11. It's the Daily Star but still, it's another link. Story gaining momentum. http://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/449579/Sunderland-battle-Middlesbrough-West-Ham-winger-Stewart-Downing
  12. I can definitely see Downing being interested in a return. Seems like West Ham's new boss wants his own players and the board are willing to back him. Which will probably leave Downing out in the cold. Yes, a premier league side could easily get him. But maybe Stewy might just see us and think he can give us the extra quality that was missing last season to make that push up into the top two this coming season. I'm certain he would be interested and it would appeal. The only question is money. How much would he cost (in fee and wages)? How much do we have? And how much would we be willing to spend on him? But would Stewy be interested in a return? I'm certain he would. He's a boro lad and we proved last season we were close. We'll just have to watch this space...
  13. Going off the clips he looks like he would be a very good signing on a free, but on the contrary, I'm not sure about the quality of the league, and anyone can look good on YouTube I don't believe the Polish league is of a very high standard. This is just a guess but for example some of the headers he is scoring in the video he would not score in England because defenders mark much tighter and keepers are better. But what I do know is Poland is producing some talented players. Lets not forget that a lot of German players have come from Polish decent and have been poached by Germany to play for them. That isn't to say I'm an expert on the cruxes of what qualifies a player as Polish or German by the way. Just stating the obvious that quite a few of the German players have had the option of representing Poland. You can see this lad has talent. One of the goals in the video is very similar to one Bamford scored for us this season (goal @ 1:05) and we all know, and so does the rest of the country now, that he has a bright future in the game. Looks like there is competition for this guy but I would at least hope we are looking at him.
  14. Don't know what type of striker we are looking for but the ones who have been effective in the championship over recent seasons have been big, tall strong guys. Just noticed Michiel Kramer who plays for ADO Den Haag in Holland scored 17 in eredivisie last season. 6 ft 5 and by the looks of clips on youtube decent pace, a poacher who gets in the box and clearly he has a good eye for goal.
  15. Rather see Bennett or Atkinson given the chance to be honest. I can see the merit in that too. But if we are serious about getting out of this division we need players with experience who can be relied on week after week. Neither of those two have ever started a league game.
