Very much off topic. But that Bucket family never sat right with me. Pretending to be bed ridden no doubt to claim extra benefits in some sort of weird wife swapping lifestyle (must’ve been upsetting for the kids) With Grandpa Joe feigning poverty but breaking out his suit as soon as there’s something in it for him  🤨

"Boro are willing to meet Spurs’ demands, although it remains to be seen whether the lure of remaining in London with QPR proves too strong to resist.

Amos has spent most of his career playing as a defensive midfielder, but he can also operate in a more attacking position or as a centre-half or full-back.

His versatility is regarded as one of his biggest assets by Warnock, with the Boro boss actively targeting utility players this summer. "

Confirmation from the Echo we're trying to get Amos, looked around and it seems like Tottenham are after around 500k for him with some add ons so he wouldn't break the bank. They also make it sound like Goode has cooled and Northampton are trying to hold out and raise the price which we are hesitant to get involved in.

Is Amos any good? Never really seen him play. Only 23.

Must have had a tough paper round then cos he looks a lot older than that!

Sorry been away with job. Spoke to friend updates I have

gibson:  still in talks with Burnley Not dependant on fry His is willing to take a huge wage cut!

Amos doesn’t want to leave London so unlikely there but he has had talks.

McNair in talks with stoke and a couple of other clubs including Celtic but stoke need to sell 1st.

Roberts still at target but want to wait until after champions league. 

Gunter been to rockcliffe but has a lot of options.

hasnt played that much but spent a full season at QPR after which he has become Warburtons top target. so he must have shown something to impress.

Seem to remember Amos being the best player on the park when we played QPR at the Riverside. Was always looking for the ball and keeping the play ticking which I think we miss massively. I’d definitely be happy with him, especially for the price mentioned.

Don't see the point in Gunter unless club has a nice offer for Spence incoming.

Mediocre championship player at the end of his career while imo we have two very promising players in Spence/Djiksteel already for RB. 

Would still love to get Roberts back. Think there is more to come from him.  

Amos for Mcnair could be good business if we get a silly fee for Mcnair and if we could get Gibson in him along with Fry/Hall would be a decent set of CB's to start with.

Glad to see we are still after Roberts. Maybe he’s our no.1 target from the prem on loan that Warnock was mentioned wouldn’t know until late August.

    • Agree with Sandy..  we are inconsistent but some of that is relative inexperience and hopefully that will decrease. Hopefully we can get a few more U23's out on loan to push them on a bit and fill the squad up for next year..  we have the makings of a good team and if we can get the final pieces of the jigsaw, then we will be there or thereabouts . Would also like to mention that discipline seems to have improved significantly, halfway through season and only one red card, which was rightly overturned and most of the yellows were for "proper" fouls rather than dissent or other daft stuff..  Sam will always be Sam but having watched Souness, Kennedy, Glover, Hammy, Boam and other nasty boys, he is very mild compared to them and I think all good teams have someone like him, so I think it should be acknowledged he is the best Egyptian we've had   
    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
