The Summer/Autumn transfer thread 2020

I think that Shane Duffy is possibly out of contract at Brighton. He would be a good addition as a Warnock Centre Half

Ok he must have renewed. He signed a four year deal in 2016 so I thought it was up this year.

@Blanco happily take Duffy if he was available. Good defender.

I think if Gibson comes him and Fry at CB would be a good pairing.

We then need to replace Shotton who will leave given he wants to go back to Midlands and widely reported to be on a good wage. I think Friend will be the 4th CB at the club.

Warnock strikes me as someone who might offer Richard Keogh a lifeline. Keogh is 34 next month but ticks all the boxes of what Warnock wants in a defender. Would not hugely surprise me if Warnock offered him a 12 month deal to be back up tp Fry and Gibson / a experienced leader amongst the team

I also wouldn’t want us to sign Keogh. A solid defender in his day, but past his prime and with his bad knee injury he’s going to be a liability.

Am I the only one not bothered about Gibson coming back? Don't think he's looked half the defender outside of AK's system.

Not at all. I think he would be too expensive too. But if it doesn’t take away money from the transfer and wage budget the id happily take him though.

He’s no finished, he’s only 28

He’s turning 34 in August. I wouldn’t even have had him in his prime.

I like us to have a look at Rob Dickie from Oxford, 24 year old no nonsense center back who's contract ends 2021, I think he'd be a real good signing and definitely fits our transfer strategy

I’d like us not to look at lower league players this summer if we want to strengthen the first team.

    • To be fair, all of the players who we have been linked with so far make sense. I don’t think we’ll see many mercenaries come to Boro for a pay day, which I’m pleased about.    Touch wood; all the signs seem positive so far in terms of who we’ve been linked with 
    • Ashley Fletcher. The fact he’s overcome so much pressure and “down moments” with us, yet he has still come out stronger on the other side is really admirable. I think that’s a very under rated quality for a footballer to have. I bloody love it seeing him play with confidence and his hard work paying off. Go on LAD!
    • Fletcher.  I honestly think he is our best striker now.  He had a difficult start here, with fans on his back because of his price tag, but has persevered and developed despite all the inadequacies in our coaching set up.  I really like how he and Tav link up.  I am looking forward to seeing how he develops under a manager who knows how to coach players and inspire confidence in them.  
    • To be honest I find it difficult to pick a favourite out as we are at a stage where we have no consistently outstanding players though many are very capable in flashes...I like Johnson going forwards but he terrifies me near our penalty area...Fletch is improving all the time and with a partner that would pass to him, he could improve a lot more...Tav is beginning to show his potential ...but agree with Blanco, Saville very underrated and reminds me a lot of Mustoe...so probably one of those three depending on the game...."deep rums".?..I'll have one of those 
    • Friend also for sentimental reasons. I have a soft spot for Dijksteel  for reasons unbeknown to even myself and want him to do well. I really liked Ayala as I felt much more confident in our defence when he was a part of it but the way he departed left a bad taste. My favourite player growing up, despite my username, was actually Gianluca Festa. I like players who play in a way which shows that they care about this club as much as we fans do. Festa did that. There been more since him, George being one of them. His legs have gone but I know he gives a sh*t about this club just as much as the rest of us do.
