  1. Is the winger not more likely to be Grosicki than Robson-Kanu? Warnock has mentioned he likes him in the past, and recently found himself in the West Brom team after Diangana’s injury and Matt Phillips self isolating. Makes sense for West Brom to let him go after those 2 are back.
  2. Imagine we could flog them Gestede and Shotton as part of the deal. Probably save about £50k on wages
  3. Pete O'Rourke @SportsPeteO Middlesbrough are considering a move to hijack Brentford’s pursuit of Charlton striker Lyle Taylor. #Boro #BrentfordFC #cafc
  4. The criticism towards Britt from some fans still baffles me, the reason he misses so many chances is because he gets in the positions to score those chances in the first place. One-on-ones aren't even a commonality in football and yet he still manages to get in about 10 one-on-one positions a season due to his pace and ability to run in behind. Think about it, how many times did Randolph find himself one-on-one with a striker last season? Not many. I'm not saying he's anywhere near Aguero's level but watching Aguero he misses just as many chances as he scores, because he gets that many chances due to his great positional awareness. I think people forget we're only a Championship side and there really are some awful strikers in this league, to sell Britt this late on would be ludicrous.
  5. If true that Gibson didn't want to leave, can anyone actually explain the thought process behind selling him and using the money raised to buy Flint and Saville? Looking for an actual explanation, is there some sort of FFP rule whereby we had to raise a certain amount of cash but the actual profit margin didn't matter? I actually can't comprehend why we would do that?
  6. QPR and Wigan join Middlesbrough in the race to sign former Chelsea defender Todd Kane on a free transfer

  9. Totally agree a proven goal scorer at this level, goes to a more attack minded team and he'll score goals simple as that. If Britt is the best striker in the division I'm sure we'll have lots of teams after him, maybe even premier league teams. Who wouldn't want the best striker in the division if he's available? Or maybe Blackburn is about his level. He'd get atleast 25 in a full injury free season at Blackburn
  10. I'm pretty sure Pulis' ideal system is a big target man with an out and out winger on one side and then an inside forward on the other. It's where Waghorn would have played had we got him. Vassell would likely play there.
  11. I agree in part. I think if we have pace and width to get behind defences then Britt will be really productive for us. Using the forward as we are now, like a fulcrum is neither suited to Britt or the team as our midfield dont seem able to run beyond the attacker for the second ball. I think we need to be all in for pacy wingers. Playing the same way with our midfield will get us nowhere at home. He needs good players around him to be at his best. He needs through balls through the defence to run onto, evidenced by his goal vs Birmingham the other week. Its a shame the other players aren't on his wavelength. In my opinion he's very similar to Braithwaite in that he can look terrible at times due to the awful system Pulis deploys and the awful midfield behind him. Someone like Adama would seriously benefit Britt, we rarely saw them on the same pitch however, when they did I believe Adama assisted him 3 times last season?
  12. Unless they're cashing in on Dack
  13. Britt is the best striker in the division when played in the correct system and I'd be devastated to see him go, considering Pulis will be gone at the end of this season and Britt would have been a huge asset for our next manager. We will seriously regret this one
  14. That was the idea with Monk, young manager and recently retired. Although we weren't his first job of course
  15. It might all be completed and he's going back to London to pick up his stuff? Hopefully
  16. This makes the £8 million for George Saville even more baffling
  17. He has 5 assists in the league this season to be fair to him
