  1. Big, strong Pulis type midfielder. Released by Newcastle with interest from Birmingham and Barnsley.
  2. Randolph Shotton Friend Flint Ayala Howson/Clayton McNair Downing Hal-Kanu Waghorn Gestede FFS
  3. Baggies fan saying we may be in for Hal Robson-Kanu. Primarily he is a winger but can play up front. Replacement for Traore?
  4. Not sure if it is relevant now but Forest fan told me we made an approach for Costel Pantilimon prior to him signing but he chose them over us following on from his spell there last season and his relationship with Karanka.
  5. The first manager I can remember in a long time who can be heard through Sky on the touchline giving instructions to players, he was louder than the crowd at times. The players let him and the coaching team down tonight.
  6. No there isn't, Pulis is here for 18 months He will walk away at the end of the season.
  7. I made a comment earlier in the thread about Pulis not being here in the summer, however if he is promised certain things or a significant budget in the summer and decides to stay for a further 12 months we need to be careful with his legacy, majority of WBA fans believe it will take a number of years for their club to recover from his time there. The transition to a different style of management or direction will be challenging.
  8. Appointing Pulis smacked of desperation and short termism. I reckon he will be gone at the end of the season. This requires more than an 12-18 month commitment and commuting from Bournemouth will decide it.
  9. https://www.transfermarkt.com/fc-middlesbrough/transfers/verein/641/saison_id/2017 Incredible amount of activity both incoming and outgoing.
  10. Leeds fan seems to think we are chasing Jordan Hugill along with them with his contract expiring soon. Hemlington lad who has played for Whitby, Gateshead, Hartlepool, Marske and according to Wiki worked as a barman at the ***ens Inn during his time as a semi-professional.
  11. If they cannot put in a performance on his managerial debut at the Riverside with over 30k something seriously wrong.
  12. The Ben Gibson rumour is not true and that comes from a relative. Swansea informed Middlesbrough that Monks agent sounded them out about him following on from transfer meeting with board which begged the question about his long term commitment to the club. Jenkins would never work with Monk again.
  13. 10 seasons with Stoke City, Crystal Palace and West Brom: 321 Premier League games - 319 goals – 157 of them via set pieces. In all but one of those seasons, the team that Pulis was in charge of registered the fewest number of passes in the division.
  14. I always thought Karanka would end up at Palace, Roy may be gone by December.
  15. I am a fan of Garry Monk and believe it will come good and as a realist understand we may not go straight back up this year. We have effectively replaced the entire team and these things take time. The problems from last year were deep rooted within the club from players to staff and required a clean out. I predicted pre-season we would make a stuttering start and pick up pace mid-late October.
  16. Just saw the highlights and incredible we did not concede a goal, my word. Could be a massive point come the end of the season
  17. Graeme Bailey‏Verified account @GraemeBailey 12m12 minutes ago More Despite loan offers from the Bundesliga and Middlesbrough - Liverpool could very well be keeping hold of winger Ryan Kent.
  18. Keep an eye on Jamie Walker with Hearts if Rangers cant meet valuation.
  19. Jack Colback has been informed he will be sent to train with the academy players if he does not agree a move away from St James’. Unwanted by Benitez the midfielder saw a loan move to Wolves break down last night. Colback wants to stay in the north east and has been offered to Sunderland, his old club and Middlesbrough. Sunderland have said they do not want him, Middlesbrough appear lukewarm. Hull would like him on loan but Colback would prefer to stay closer to home.
  20. No takers for Adlène Guedioura, even in the Turkish league. If he can force his way back into our team it will be the greatest comeback since Lazarus.
  21. The concern I have for this window is that our signings are not players who have been consistently challenging at the top of the Championship for a long haul 46 game season (Howson excluded) and along with that comes high expectation and pressure. I think many share the same concerns of a Plan B option from midfield and wingers if we need to switch it up. This appears to be one of Monk's weaknesses mentioned by a large number of Swansea and Leeds fans and I still think we are limited in numbers for the squad.
