I think it's just that Tav makes the whole team look better right now, been sublime under Warnock.

He has, it really baffled me that warnock was so hesitant to play him - he only got to start the last 3 games despite looking consistently excellent every time he came on.

The bit earlier about Wing from the start vs a sub rings true. Same used to be the case for Tav. But Tav now influences when he comes on as well.

Wing needs more coaching. Way to early to be sending him on his way. He cost nothing so we don't need to get anything back.

Since the restart without checking stats I don't recall there being much game time between Wing and Tav on the pitch at the same time. Under Warnock Tav has been one of the stand outs without any doubt but before Warnock's arrival, under Pulis and Woodgate when the two have been on the pitch at the same time they do seem to have telepathy between them and read each others game well with some slick inter-passing.

Selling players you've paid nothing for is a really good thing for the finances and FFP. I'm guessing he is worth 0 in the books so it's all profit. That's why it's really great to regularly sell a homegrown talent or find someone on a Bosman that turns out to be brilliant.

Can't believe people are genuinely saying Wing is better than Saville. Wing at best should be used as an impact sub when we need a goal against a tight defence, he's a great option to have vs teams that play a low block. Other than that I really don't rate his ability, he can definitely improve and I'm sure he will with another full pro season. Saville will be one of our most important players next season and it's obvious Warnock rates him as well.

This. Also it's difficult to quantify the effect a player like that can have at creating holes behind the defence. If they're focusing on him whenever he's within 30 yards of the box then Britt and Fletch should be able to exploit teams with clever runs in behind.

Didn’t we try that though at the beginning of the season. This isnt a criticism of Wing by the way. I like him. I would like to see him With better forwrds in front of him.

I believe it will be NW's way or the highway. I can't see Wing or McNair having the work ethic and pace for NW or staying if we get offers we deem acceptable. Other plays he wants to keep will only go if the money makes it good business etc.

At the start of the season wasn't JW trying to make him work as a deep lying playmaker?

Yep, that was his hope. Completely took away his threat by trying to turn him into Boro's Pirlo.

I thought it was stupid at the time but in retrospect it's even stupider. Way to nullify a player with one very clear and obvious threat to his game.

I have whacked it on the front page of this thread too, I hope @Smogzilla doesn't mind me editing his post & thanks to @Snowblind for writing it out!

This is something we go through every year, whether we need a "roundup" post/thread. lol

Best laid plans and all that!

You know this thread has a mind of it's own and a round up somehow always gets swallowed during the process

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
