  1. Marvin Johnson was a strange signing. It seemed we paid over the odds at the time and he wasnt the quality we needed. He was also one of the players named in the alleged lawsuit from the club against Monk. Middlesbrough launched an investigation after receiving information that they may have paid over the odds to sign a number of players, including Ryan Shotton, Marvin Johnson, Ashley Fletcher and Cyrus Christie. Monk, it has been alleged, failed to inform Middlesbrough of the valuations placed on them by their clubs and therefore allowed the club to pay inflated fees. It has also been suggested that he ‘passed on confidential information to Featherstone, which enabled the agent to increase his commission’.
  2. San Jose follows Jonathan Leko, George Friend, Jon Toral Ivan Sanchez, Andres Prieto, Adam Clayton, Neil Etheridge and Scott Hogan in arriving at Blues this summer. Reminiscent of our early years with Karanka and Orta. You dont fully appreciate the signings of Stuani, Nugent, Ramirez and Forshaw during that promotion push until you compare with our incomings over the last 18 months.
  3. Bournemouth have never won away at Middlesbrough Boro - Hold my beer.
  4. Disappointing result but the Carabao Cup is a distraction we do not need and adds to a hectic schedule considering the season finished so late. Warnock will have learnt a number of things tonight about his squad and what needs to be addressed in the coming weeks. After barely surviving in The Championship last season we need a 3-4 year plan to go up and I would be happy this season for Warnock to build a solid foundation and a stable mid season finish. Sounds like a broken record but it will take time to recover the from £66m spending spree by Garry Monk in 17, losing the seasoned experience of Flint, Mikel, Downing Braithwaite and Randolph, transitioning from the Pulis way of playing and the financial restrictions under the Woodgate reign.
  5. You are right. He is out for several months as of early August. Has had a lot of injuries in the past. https://the72.co.uk/178096/middlesbrough-pursuing-deal-for-want-away-toulouse-winger-wesley-said/
  6. We have tracked Wesley Said since our first year back in the Premier League under Karanka when he played for Rennes. He is very close to Sanogo.
  7. Expect to see him in a Barnsley shirt next week then.
  8. I don’t think Gibson ever wanted to leave and certainly not to Burnley. Perhaps Steve Gibson feels personally responsible for his nephews situation at Burnley and wants to make things right while at the same time improving the squad
  9. The Tooting and Mitcham fans thought he would be able to step it up to League football coming from the Isthmian League South Central.
  10. An owner who has a historical dislike of football agencies and agents resulting in past legal battles (Jonathan Barnett legal slur case) and a manager whose known to prefer player recruitment through agencies with his own family having had past relationships between club employees and intermediaries when he was manager at that club. What could go wrong with our recruitment and ‘This won’t end well with Warnock’, indeed.
  11. No, sorry. It was an attempt to screenshot the Sunderland hierarchy negotiating the Will Grigg transfer on Netflix to sum up our efforts.
  12. Woodgate in America with a criminal record and COVID Visa restrictions 😆
