  1. Like a f a r t in a lift , he just lingers and never really leaves.
  2. Not sure if we were ever really serious about Grosicki from Hull, but just read his agents comments that they plan to see out the final year of his contract at Hull, hopefully impress at next years Euros and get a new club with a bumper pay deal (he'll be 32 then). Sounds a bit risky , and also like a money grabbing so-and-so, but I guess careers are short and they need to make hay whilst the sun shines. Hopefully this ends our interest (if we had any).

  4. January this year. https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2019/01/09/report-middlesbrough-want-to-sign-romaine-sawyers-before-aston-v/
  5. Apparently a lot of Championship interest in Younousse Sankhare (at £4M) , would sort us out at LB but is also versatile for other positions. I imagine these type of player are dreamworld for us at the moment. Hey-ho , lets squeeze another year out of George.
  6. Gary Gill when asked what wingers we're looking at
  7. Do you remember Yakubu's last game? I wanted to kill him.
  8. Let's face it , we haven't got a pot to *** in.
  9. Slightly off the beaten track , but do the Football club own Rockcliffe Hall (Hotel & Golf Course) , as well as the training complex & Stadium ?
  10. Brentford seem to be doing some good work in the transfer market, today close to signing Celta Vigo midfielder Mathias Jensen. With a midfield already containing Watkins, Canos, Sawyers etc, I'm starting to get a little green with envy. With signing Pontus Jansson and David Raya also , I reckon they'll be right up there this season. Teams are improving around us , and we're standing still (or going backwards) with a rookie manager. Looking at teams you'd expect to be in the promotion mix (Brentford, Cardiff, Derby, Fulham, Huddersfield, Leeds, Notts Forest, Stoke & West Brom) , presently I just can't see us competing for top 6 , we'll be battling the likes of Blackburn, Preston, Swansea & Hull to get into the top 10. Maybe Gibson has looked at it and thought unless we invest big time to challenge for top 2 , any investment is a waste of money providing we can stay in the championship without relegation fears. ROI might be high in the club thinking this summer.
  11. Waiting for a signing or even a strong rumour of one on the horizon, is like this dude waiting for his big bucket to fill up.
  12. And he's only 29 years young, so should get a couple of seasons out of him. Deffo for a squad member, due to the positions he can fill.
  13. OK, cool. Can you say what the fee was and maybe a link also.
  14. We made a loss on George Miller , not huge in actual £/Pounds but the % knock would seem high. The fee to bring Miller to the Riverside is thought to be less than the originally-mooted £1m, but could go beyond that with add-ons, and Boro have twice saw approaches rebuffed by the Shakers over the last fortnight. Source: https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/middlesbrough-sign-bury-teenage-striker-13326411 The League One play-off contenders have made a reported £200,000 plus add-ons offer to take the young hitman to Oakwell. Source: https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/barnsley-move-young-middlesbrough-striker-15756270 Recouping a 1/4 or a 1/5 of our outlay on Miller seems awful business. Apart from Lewis Wing I'm struggling to see what young prospects we've signed on a low fee , that have either broken into the first team or turned a decent profit. Remember this guy (Mikael Soisalo) https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/introducing-mikael-soisalo-middlesbrough-academys-12740335 If the new club plan is to buy bargain prospects from the lower leagues in the hopes of coming good , I think we need to up our game from previous examples (Wing excluded of course).
  15. Genuine question though , why didn't he start for Pompey in their biggest game of the season (2nd playoff leg against Sunderland) if he's their best player. Could have been carrying a knock , but if we wasn't I'm confused why he didn't start.
  16. When you say half (1/2) wingers , do you mean "little people" ?
