Love hearing Warnock talking about transfers, someone who knows what he’s doing and has the confidence and experience to say what he wants! The bit above about the scouts showing him two CBs with the best stats and him saying no when he looked at them play - can’t imagine Woodgate or others daring to do that!

Brad young would be a fantastic signing. Watched him a lot at my local side Billingham town and he's got massive potential, vocal, confident and commands his area. Worth a little enquiry

Also been nice to see some honesty, do get the feeling that Warnock is about to see our fantastic recruitment team in all of its "glory". Encouraging to see he's been putting the pressure on Gibbo and Bausor to get deals over the line

Is EFL Hub reliable for transfer news?

10k followers, one of them being Gary Neville so might have some knowledge to it.

Doesn't really say anything none of us couldn't guess though.

Absolute rubbish. Gestede was a crap player but he was not picking up a wage with zero work, there's a sodding difference. Us paying him too much money is absolutely sod all to do with what he gave us back in his lack of quality contribution, we gave the lad a stupid bumper contract because our recruitment practices were and still are a complete shambles.

Every single injury he's suffered at this club, he's worked to come back from and make himself available and tried to contribute something. And every manager has put him in the team at one time or another despite those issues. He's not sat on the sidelines picking up a paycheck for nowt as some would like to believe in order to keep up this stupid vendetta against him.

The problem with his lack of ability is an US problem, it's that our scouts didn't give a toss that he was crap before we signed him, it's that our recruitment team thought he was worth the money we pumped into him for 3.5 years, it's that we never thought for one second that we'd have to deal with having to sell him before offering him a contract for far too long. He didn't improve our first team or our squad and we gave him a contract that was completely unbefitting of what he was capable of. That is on US.

Everything he's said regarding the short term renewal is absolutely reasonable in terms of protecting his career from this point forward. A player shouldn't be asked to potentially give up the entirety of their next contract for a significant amount of time 'just because'. In that situation, he asked for some protection. We quite rightly said no to that and thus so did he. There's absolutely nothing unreasonable about that result from either side.

And just to add... he holds absolutely no connection to us and he's had nothing but abuse for his limited qualities the entirety of the time he's been here. 99% of Boro fans have been gasping for him to be sold for most of his time here and given him *** for not moving on for being too greedy or whatever. The lad made the decision not to renew for another few weeks and he gets pelters for that too. Utterly incredible stuff.

HA. I literally never said he didn't work. Or that he didn't try to recover from injury. Or that he sat on the sidelines trying not to play. Or that he should extend his contract 'just because'.

And if you think he's had absolutely nothing but abuse from the club, then you're really not that clever. 💵💵💵

He doesn't owe us anything, contractually. But I do think that morally he did. But I guess morals mean v little in this day and age. In fact, I'm actually a bit worried that if I drive into work tomorrow I might get a puncture and it'll cost me a buck to get fixed. Think i'll give it a miss, the money the company has paid me historically is irrelevant.. not the best analagy in the world, but demonstrates my point (just about).

But we can agree he was crap. That his initial recruitment/contract was our fault. And it was in the best interest of all that thankfully he did reject our terms. But it did, however, have the potential to be the difference between relegation and survival - which is why I'll always think that he let the club down.

If Stoj is moved on what a colossal waste of money that would have turned out to be.

Not like us at all 🙂

That Blackpool lad looks like a decent no risk signing. I would also like us to look at Ryan Hardie from Blackpool too. Think he would be a great 60-70 minute sub option. Thought he was excellent at Argyle last season.
