  1. I wonder if the next set of signings won't be until the new contract period starts - 1 July. Would make sense of it going quiet apart from the City goalkeeper out of the blue.
  2. I think people like McNair are way too comfy being good Championship players. He was the one I was thinking of. Perhaps Bola might have a limit in terms of ability but I don't think he is a bottler. Our squad excluding the likes of Hall, Uche, Coulson is tiny. Bombing people out is a risk when you don't know who you will be able to bring in. Colin Todd tried it and it pretty much tore the squad apart. Edit: Sorry quoted wrong message in my reply.
  3. Reading the Gazette and Echo articles I would think we have a few more deals done than have been announced. I reads like the goalkeeper is done. But that he's pretty sure are nearly there on a few others. We certainly seem to have got things working. Hopefully it lasts longer than the Orta and Karanka model. That did well for a while and fella apart when we got promoted.
  4. That's all pretty common knowledge or at least widespread rumours in the press.
  5. Well, Spurs and him better get their acts together. I wonder how much patience we will show if it's costing us deals. Gibson vs Levy at the end of the day.
  6. The u23s have changed to u21s this season.
  7. I really cannot understand why Ameobi is on the Free Transfer list provided to the EFL but wasn't in the comms out out by the Boro comms. Surely they cannot just not say anything ever again about him. The Gazette really need to be asking for a public comment of some sort.
  8. United would ruin him. Really hope he stays to help us get up.
  9. Rob on FMTTM has been told it's up on last year's early bird. I'd expect 16k+18k and then around 20k in total by the time the season starts. We should be going up this year so crowds will be up I think.
  10. I'm more perplexed about why season tickets aren't back on sale yet. Seems bonkers to not be trying to sell them. Maybe waiting for some signings to create a buzz.
  11. But it seems we need the price playing down. Business is tricky. Going to be an interesting couple of weeks I suspect. We are 10/1 3rd favourites to win the league. Get this sort of business done and we will be favourites.
  12. Anyone think the Gazette have been asked to play things down so we get deals done before it's announced so we can get better deals for incoming transfers? As has been mentioned clubs will ask for a few quid more if they know we are cash rich. I reckon we will get a few deals done this week and then Spence will go once international games are done.
  13. Looking good. https://www.footballinsider247.com/tottenham-spence-talks-advanced/
  14. I just don't see why people are happy for Fry to go. He's a class player, loves the area and gives his all. And would probably pay for free. Do people really think we'd be better without him. McNair has to be the one to ship out if it's one of them. For me Dael can stay his whole career and become a proper legend.
  15. That's quite sad. Who went to Gibson about him? Did noone on the scouting or coaching side get a say? Very strange.
  16. Pretty sure it was because of the huge Irish immigrant population. Hence the Catholic cathedral amongst other things.
  17. I know. Zidane's lad came on. Massive and absolutely class.
  18. I hope we had some scouts at this France v Netherlands u17 match. Some class players. To avoid accusations of being sad I'm on holiday with my 13 year old and he spotted the match on in a restaurant so that's where we ate. Food was nice as well.
  19. There was an article about Spence a couple of months ago in the Guardian where all his old coaches were interviewed from being a kid. One theme - he doesn't do rules and he has an attitude. His family get a mention too. Basically if you criticise him he sulks. Forest will have just let him be for the season. Tell him he's awesome and let him do his stuff. It will not work long term as his team mates will wonder why he gets special treatment. But on loan for a year it's probably ok.
  20. I would change it slightly. Tav to LWB, Payero on right mid and Coburn up top. Watmore to come on and get the 4th.
  21. Lovely day for last day of the season. Hopefully everyone on and off the pitch gives it their all. We know something odd will happen. Probably Bournemouth not getting promoted but you never know. Worst case scenario Mackems win the play offs and we play them twice next season. Which would be nice. Bizarrely Sunderland and Newcastle are 2 grounds my 13 year old has never been to.
  22. Mini season tickets and a return of Boro Pride would be good I think.
