  1. Bournemouth have never won away at Middlesbrough Boro - Hold my beer.
  2. 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.
  3. 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/
  4. 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.
  5. Expect to see him in a Barnsley shirt next week then.
  6. 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
  7. The Tooting and Mitcham fans thought he would be able to step it up to League football coming from the Isthmian League South Central.
  8. 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.
  9. No, sorry. It was an attempt to screenshot the Sunderland hierarchy negotiating the Will Grigg transfer on Netflix to sum up our efforts.
  10. Woodgate in America with a criminal record and COVID Visa restrictions 😆
  11. Not a good sign when the striker you are signing has been nicknamed ‘Sanogoal’
  12. That’s been known for a while, doesn’t look like anything has moved forward in the last week. I posted a comment on Page 328 regarding the Forshaw/Bamford promotion money owed and how we were looking to use this payment for a player.
  13. Dean Windass on ‘Undr The Cosh’ podcast on YouTube. Confirmed he was on £33,000 a week here in 2001 and also Boksic was on £100,000 a week with house, car and all travel paid. Had a few interesting stories to tell about his time as a professional footballer.
  14. See my past post on linked players through Wasserman.
  15. Seraino Dalgliesh and Leegreg Fer with Wasserman Agency
  16. In line with Warnocks past transfer dealings at other clubs we seem to have been pursuing a number of players who are registered to Wasserman Agency (Kevin Stewart, Joe Williams, Luke Amos, Tyler Blackett, Jacques Maghoma. Dael Fry is also registered with them) Edit - Duvel mentioned in a follow up post Max Kilman with Wolves is also with agency and has been linked. I was told we have adopted a social media/agent system for recruitment along with scouting called The Players Agent and this resulted in one transfer this summer. There is an active advertisement on there now on behalf of a Championship club looking for a CF (Target Man) with a budget of € 50,000 per month (All wages are in €) along with a Right Winger required on loan for the same wage. “TPA has been created by professionals for professionals and its aim is to provide an online environment where reliable information can be entered and found. TPA offers in addition to functions that are common to social networks - A market place for players who are looking for a new club or an agent and for clubs who are looking for players.”
  17. Bamford/Forshaw promotion clause money should pay for an additional player or we could negotiate a loan with them for a specific player....
  18. Burnley owe us 4m from the Gibson deal so consider that too when factoring in a deal for Fry.
  19. Jude Bellingham money. Friend is a leader and exemplary professional in the dressing room despite his limitations on the field. Karanka will want his influence in and around the place.
  20. Modern day and a different selection in Marten De Roon but utilized to his strengths and best position. Remarkable we came up from the Championship and managed to sign a player who a few years later would now be playing a starring role in the UEFA Champions League latter stages.
  21. Listened to the High Performance Podcast with Sean Dyche on Youtube where he talks about his philosophy and demands of players at Burnley. Its hard to believe there is an issue between him and Gibson considering the latter was thought of as a leader when he was here and it’s what Dyche looks for when signing players (Mentality, background, attitude, mannerisms etc)
  22. What is the general consensus of Neil Cox as a player here? Thought he was solid in Division 1 but struggled with the step up in the Premiership .
