  2. I would take Howe gladly in the absence of anyone better, but my point is to spend more money on a top-class manager. We could spread the net a bit wider and not be afraid of paying top-dollar for a manager who could assure us PL football for years to come. I might be idealistic but I do think it is within our reach.
  3. I fear Howe might be same-old-same-old. Lampard has the glamour factor though, and he didn't do badly at Derby. Personally, I'd look further afield.
  4. I’ve said time and time again (although I don’t post much nowadays) that there is no point in splashing money on players unless the manager is capable of welding them into a successful team. Boro’s history of managers generally consists of appointing local heroes (Mowbray and Woodgate), players with pulling power but no managerial experience (Robson and Southgate), overrated wannabes (Monk), patch-up jobs (Venables), managers who could talk the talk but not walk the walk – until he walked (Strachan), and over-the-hill dinosaurs (Pulis and Warnock). The notable exceptions are McClaren and Karan

  7. Sorry mate. My son has just retuned here from the UK and we've been very busy getting him settled in. I promise I will do better.

  11. With all due respect, I don’t think it’s quite as simple as that. Take Alves as an example. He was the top scorer in the Eredivisie (not the worst division in the world) before we bought him from Heerenveen, and they were very loath to let him go. But he was used to having the ball fed to him on a silver platter and that simply didn’t happen at Boro. Mostly he was wandering aimlessly about waiting for a ball that never came. On the few occasions when it actually did happen – as in the case of the 8-1 thrashing of a very out-of-sorts Man City, he performed well. My point here is that all t
  12. Yes, it does sound a tad pedantic really. Who knows who can succeed? We have come notably unstuck in the past by investing a lot of dosh in “goal machines” who failed to deliver after moving to Boro. Alves and Britt spring to mind. The transfer window has always been a lottery, and even more so now.
