  1. You would have thought loan fees to some extent would have been initially discussed prior to any serious interest/showing around the club. I think we had the funds for 1 decent loan singing it's just our first choices have gone elsewhere and we aren't (for once & good reason) prepared to panic and get someone else in.
  2. The 2 Full-backs will give us much more width this season than we have had previously and Wing, Tav, Browne, Fletcher will play much more direct. I'd still say it's a vast improvement from last season starting team in my opinion.
  3. He said you don't set out for mid-table, you 'play to win'. Keane said he wouldn't have come to Boro if it wasn't try and be near the top of the table.
  4. Dont think we will see him starting.... Browne and Fletcher will probably be the starters either side of Britt ...... Leaving Gestede as the sub ?
  5. I think it's been a decent/positive window with the players we have got out the door, youth bought and brought through, and essentially not selling any of our key players...... I just can't help but feel disappointed that we are likely 1 attacking winger and 1 CB away from a strong side that could have finished anywhere decent (Top 6). Yes ano, the target for this season is a 'transition one', but as Woody said in his Manger evening, you don't set out to finish mid table, got to aim to win it! With the couple of players we are short, it's looking less likely imo.
  6. Thought read a few pages ago that Woodgate had Browne's name in his presentation?
  7. Coulson can play either side I think (but not 100% sure) and Howson as a back-up isn't the worst position to be in IMO. Rather a CB if a defender was coming in but much more preference is on the 1 more attacking player which could be huge for us.
  8. So really that only leaves Gestede who is a must to get off the books and his contract runs out at the end of this season.... Not bad at all. Probably 1 too many with Saville, Wing, Tav, Howson, Mcnair but done good business this window to get rid of high-earners that we dont need! Overall happy with that. Now please just finish it off with our much anticipated AM/ST ?
  9. Fingers crossed.... A decent attacking player in and Shotton off the books would be a good end to the window
  10. Diangana is disappointing that we have missed out on if he has been here for a look ?
  11. I dont think I would go as far as saying it would be a very bad window... selling Fry and Britt then not replacing on transfer deadline day is a very bad window...... Yes really need a RW for us all to be happy but with Coulson, Fletcher, Browne, Tav (ish) and Johnson it wouldn't make it absolutely shocking.
  12. Just watching Sunderland Till I Die and have to say Fletcher defo enjoyed it / toughened him up and 100% got more out of his Sunderland loan spell than I thought before.
  13. It would obviously hit us hard if Britt left at this stage and more than likely lower our expectations for the season, but if Palace come in with decent money i.e. 15m + addons etc (+£40k wages saving), that's going to be hard to turn down for us in the financial position we are in today.
  14. That’s why he said Britt can take the next penalty, he knew then it was a false promise he didn’t have to keep
  15. Its got to be best to wait till the full news comes out of who leaves and who we replace them with before everyone panics that within an hour it’s gone from the best to worst window.
  16. Yeah Wembley. I was lucky enough to get semi final tickets as well. Too good to pass up but bit of money to shell out.
  17. Ha well Budapest is a good place to go! I got Final tickets. Bit pricey like but can't pass up on that, will be worth it. Didn't know that you have to buy all games you are successful for and can't pick a choose.
  18. Did anyone apply/get tickets for Euro 2020 today?
  19. Its all to do with Mel trying to make Derby a global 'brand'. Has got a lucrative sponsorship fund for being able to get Wayne Rooney in a Derby football top + advertisement etc. It's purely financial related as he won't officially sign until January to be able to play, and will continue in the American league however all advertisement will happen from now. Have to say from a marketing ploy, it's innovative.
  20. I also really like the number of permanent signings we have made rather than multiple Loans for key positions. Helps give the club serious sustainability that we can essentially build on next year.
  21. Agree with this which is what was making me think whoever it was is still in progress. If we had missed out/moved on I think Woodgate would have said yesterday that things have changed, but he didn't make any comment to it just that he is confident more will follow.
