  1. I’ll start by saying, I honestly can’t believe what we witnessed today. It’s easy for fans to point the blame at the players for a lack of effort but for me today highlighted our depressingly distinct lack of quality in all areas rather than dwindling effort levels. Obviously it has been apparent all season but coming up against one of, if not the worst team in the league and putting on a performance like that is just unacceptable. For me personally, I sat through the last 20 minutes of the game thinking more of the money we have wasted and our appalling recruitment that I actually did watching the game as a fan. It’s just demoralising seeing players, and with all due respect, like George Friend still playing a role in our squad and the worst part is he wasn’t even our worst today. I look at the likes of Johnson playing left-back and think is that really the best we can do. We spent a reasonable fee on Bola in the summer and due to the rule change he is now available again and of course again it is easy to watch a poor team and pick out the players that aren’t playing and think they’d make a difference but surely a natural left-back would be better than playing a winger out of position. Of course it’s very unlikely this would happen but it’s some food for thought. I also noticed Dijksteel was back in training this week and after Spence’s injury wondered how far away from Dijksteel might be from contention. I seem to remember him playing for the 23’s but suffering a slight set back a few months back, another who if available I don’t think would do much worse than our current crop of defenders if given the chance. Ultimately, like any other fan I’ll be devastated if we go down but just feel completely disconnected as to what the club has become over the past 3 years.

    'Other Boro stuff'

    Neil Warnock has publicly said how much he ‘loves’ Lewis Wing, so I’d imagine he will be in the team.
  3. If anyone would be in a position to know it’d be McMahon, he’s on the unofficial coaching staff.
  4. Not really one to share info but been told tonight there is definite interest in Gibson and both parties want it to happen. This information is from the same guy that told me about Ste Walker starting against Stoke which I posted about in the matchday thread a good few days before. As I say just passing on information but makes it more interesting after Woody’s BBC Tees interview.
  5. There isn’t really anything to be misunderstood, it’s wrong on every level.
  6. I didn’t want to say anything but it’s definitely not the best thing to be posting.
  7. I’ve got a pal from Brum area and a lot of his Villa supporting mates saying word is that Britt is happening.
  8. Thanks for the info. Also, are you saying Randolph is gone for more than 5m or that it will take more than 5m for him to go? As for Clarke and Parrott, could they potentially be in not long after the Spurs game? Makes sense seeing as though they’ll be up from London.
  9. Strangely enough we’re actually favourites to sign Billy Sharp on SkyBet. To go with the other links on here, we’re also very much favourites for Jack Clarke.
  10. @DavidSJourno: MIDDLESBROUGH. Now favourites to sign Billy Sharp on loan. Wilder doesn’t want him to leave but Woodgate is a big fan and wants him in. #Boro Can’t see this being true but if we’re discussing a deal with Sheffield United could be used as a makeweight from their side.
  11. So if Roberts and Jones do come in and we go with the 3-4-3, it’d look something like this... —————Pears————— —Howson—Ayala—Fry— Spence—McNair—Tav—Coulson —Roberts—Fletcher—Jones.
  12. Been told today that young Ste Walker is starting on Friday night so will be interesting to see how he gets on.
  13. Just be told that Woodgate is on very thin ice and defeat at the weekend will see him out the door. Obviously just passing on information but it would explain the Warnock links over the past few days.
  14. Don’t know if it’s been mentioned anywhere but Alan Brazil said on TalkSport this morning he heard Woodgate was on his way out. Interesting baring in mind he’s very good pals with Neil Warnock.

    Steve Gibson

    He’s never there to start anything anyway.
  16. Wonder if we’ll look at any free-agents? Hutton was linked and is still without a club and there’s a couple decent wingers that still don’t have teams either.
  17. Don’t get me wrong we’ve made some vital additions but it’s quite remarkable that we’ve yet again not addressed the wide positions. This must have been the 6th Deadline we’ve gone into with optimism of signing some wingers and we still haven’t. It’s taken away a large degree of optimism for the season in general for me personally as well. Disappointing again really.
  18. Same guy done that tweet last year, just a wind up.
  19. Where is this Shotton link? There’s nothing on Twitter.
  20. I can see it now, Palace will come in for Britt. Not sure he’ll go but they'll definitely come in. *Edit* Spoke to soon. https://twitter.com/fleagueworld/status/1159376733830832128?s=21
  21. Steve Gibson to pull out a madness in the final few hours?
  22. People talk about losing Britt and Randolph. Losing Clayton would be just as big a blow. In this system he’s look back to his best and is definitely not as replaceable as some seem to think.
