  1. The original tweet doesn't say it's off. It says "Turnaround in the case. It is not said at all that the Rennais will join England eventually ... track in Spain still active"
  2. "Not yet done for James Léa-Siliki at Middlesbrough. There could be a turnaround. Discussions are stuck today on some points."
  3. I've never thought we use our ex players enough for transfer targets. Imagine MvB getting calls from Bolo, George, Reiziger etc. It would have some sway surely.
  4. I think the suggestion is that some of the players coming in are not Warnock's signings. So the question is a matter of trust. Does Warnock trust these signings and also the direction the club wishes to go in?
  5. I would like to think that Warnock simply doesn't want to increase the lad's profile by talking about a deal and risk another club coming in at the last minute. But unfortunately I don't think that is the case. He's clearly irked with the appointment of Kieran Scott as Head of Football and the fact that the club is looking for players who can make an impact long after Warnock's final season is concluded. It's going to be an interesting few months 'off the pitch' that's for sure.
  6. Ooh. https://lc.nl/sport/Mitchell-van-Bergen-krijgt-met-Middlesbrough-mogelijk-zijn-vurig-gewenste-transfer-26994639.html Mitchell van Bergen can continue his career in England. Middlesbrough is interested in the SC Heerenveen wing attacker. Van Bergen can sign a multi-year contract with the club that currently plays in the Championship - a level below the Premier League. With Middlesbrough, Van Bergen may get his fervently desired transfer. The English club took four points from the first two competition matches. The 21-year-old Van Bergen came over from Vitesse three seasons ago. E
  7. The rules around free transfers state that clubs will be due compensation for any player aged 24 or under who is offered equivalent or improved terms, but chooses to turn them down to move elsewhere.
  8. "But what kind of midfielder would Boro be getting in Payero? It's interesting to note the tactics used by manager Javier Sanguinetti. Setting out in a 4-1-4-1 formation, Payero would often play as the right-sided central midfielder in that midfield three." Does that actually make sense?
  9. Yes, presumably it's less straightforward because he may have been offered more money elsewhere.
  10. Sky just reporting now that Burnley, West Brom, Watford, Stoke & Swansea are all interested in Watmore. Agent talk?
  11. The 3 deal sheets mentioned only relate to PL club incomings not outgoings.
  12. Well I can beat Nketiah. We're only bloody signing Raheem Sterling as our wideman!
  13. We may have an option on his contract remember. He may do well for Dinamo and therefore acquire a value in the meantime.

    Thanks tmcc I think what this shows is that both Middlesbrough and Stockton have taken disproportionately high numbers of asylum seekers rather than taking in the 'majority'. Other authorities take 'more' but we take more per head of local population. I have to say it doesn't impact on me so I'm not necessarily concerned by it however I would like to hear the concerns of Teessiders who feel it does impact on their daily lives and why.

    Is there a link to this tmcc?
  16. I'd like to see a table representing the net effect i.e. incomings minus outgoings. That would paint a truer picture.
  17. And today Grant, his partner and their newborn are loving it at Rockliffe Hall. The Gazette story is a complete smokescreen designed to distract.
  18. Yes but only with the benefit of hindsight, come on! Look I think we share the same admiration for Aitor and what he done for us but even after acknowledging that the club let him down badly in the transfer market (both summer and winter) he'd simply backed himself into a corner with some outrageous public statements.
  19. His position was simply untenable. His criticism of the fans, the staff and the club were all carried in public which was unprofessional and unacceptable. Nobody knew who would go on to manage the team after he left so I'm not exactly sure why you are referencing his successors in an attempt to determine who we would have been better off with. Some of my best times following the team in recent years were when Aitor was at the helm and we've had nobody better since. That doesn't mean to say that it wasn't right to let him go at that time.
