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

Sounds like I was right with that being my suggestion for who our top target is, Warnock said we have to wait til the 24th and the final for it is the 23rd. So the sooner City get knocked out, the better, I guess.

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

Cross Morgan Fox off the list if he was ever on it.

Here's the thing with Amos all signs point to it being obvious he goes to QPR he got plenty of gametime there last season, he lives in London so wouldn't have to move and Warburton believes in him. So I'm a little surprised Warnock's even trying to get him maybe he just thinks for the price it can't harm to try but it just seems like he'd obviously choose QPR to me.

Is Roberts part of their squad for the Champions League?  I assumed he wasn't so it would therefore be irrelevant to him?

i agree, cant see him coming to boro, would be some coup if we could get a london lad to leave and move to Middlesbrough. The only way its possible is if hes motivated  by money and we offer more, but i dont think were in position to do that as looks like QPR will have some funds after their sale Eze which it seems will be around 20 mil.

Yeah I'm not sure what the relevance of the champions league final would be on Roberts- theres no chance he will be involved in city's squad next season and they have been doing plenty of other business so its not like they're hanging around.

Maybe there's a chance Guardiola will be on his way if they don't win the CL?

I can't imagine any incoming manager at Man City would want Roberts, but anyone coming in may want to assess their squad.

I mean its possible. But the same logic would apply to new signings if that was the case - spending 40/50mil on players that might not fit into a new managers system?

It could be Roberts wanting to discuss his future at the club before he makes any decisions I suppose.  At some point he's probably going to want to leave permanently rather than just going out on loan all of the time.

I feel if we get Roberts back and it probably will be a big if then we will have a farbetter player on our books than last season.

We know that he is far too selfish at times but Warnock could be very good for him in terms of his overall game and contibutions

Hes not...

I guess they just want to focus on the champions league before deal with out goings?

It doesn't make any sense to me that they want to concentrate on the Champions League before releasing people, as they have just signed 2 players [Ake and Torres] for about £60m.  They will almost certainly be part of the 25-man squad next season, further pushing Roberts out of the picture.  Why can they concentrate on incomings but not outgoings of peripheral figures?

Could it be another team and another reason to wait until the 25th?

That's pretty much what I was getting at, yes. I didn't mean to say he was going to be involved with their squad as I'm pretty sure he couldn't be even if they could register more players for it, given he's played for Norwich and us already this season.

But I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest City might want to discuss his future with him or perhaps vice versa after the season has completely finished so all relevant people can be involved.

It's not like this is unheard of in football, a team waiting until the end of a season to discuss a situation with a player. Just because City have this big group of people who deal with recruitment and sales doesn't deny Roberts the time to sit down with his manager. After all, they have only sold Sane so far this summer and that was after 2 years of contract talks that came down to Guardiola publicly saying he wanted to leave back in June, before Bayern got him.

I suspect that when the decision is made regarding Roberts, the move will be finalised pretty quickly, regardless of where he ends up. But that they're probably only focused on first-team matters right now.

Perfect scenario window for me would be 

In

Hart

Gibbo

Friend renews

Blackett

Hall

CDM enforcer (Mokotjo from Brentford?)

Roberts

Gnanduillet or Chris Martin

LW who's comfortable as #10 Fabio Borini's contracts expiring 😄 

Out

Saville or McNair 

Britt if someone willing to pay instead of losing on a free, if he goes funds Kieffer Moore or someone

I wouldn't mind us going for;

- Jacob Brown from Barnsley

- Cedric Kipre and Joe Williams from Wigan

- MaCauley Bonne from Charlton

All fairly young too. I can't see them being worth that much although I imagine Brown at Barnsley will have interest from Championship clubs and Kipre I think West Ham were linked with.

    • Do hope his training ground nickname is Willy Kok or I'll have lost all respect for our lads.
    • Scene 1: Int (Night) [It’s 3am in a kitchen lit by the glow of the moon. Neil Warnock walks in yawning, wearing Paddington Bear pyjamas and fluffy slippers. He opens the fridge and takes out a bottle of milk. When he shuts the door, a ghostly white apparition has appeared behind it] WARNOCK [dropping the milk]: Jesus Christ! APPARITION: Not quite. [The ghostly white features move closer] No use crying over it, though, eh? WARNOCK: G…Garry? APPARITION: Yes. It is me. Garry. WARNOCK [looking around wildly]: How the hell did you get into my kitchen? MONK: I go wherever I want, and nobody ever seems to stop me. I find it quite peculiar. Middlesbrough…Birmingham…Sheffield Wednesday…Sky…I have the ability to slither in without invitation and then hang around until the scales fall off people’s eyes and they see me for what I really am. WARNOCK [composing himself]: So why are you in my house, Friar Took-all-the-money? MONK: I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed watching the Rotherham game on Wednesday. WARNOCK: I bloody didn’t. I had to fill the bench with kids. They had an average age of 11. MONK: No, I didn’t enjoy watching Middlesbrough. I enjoyed watching Rotherham. I get a certain pleasure from watching teams getting relegated. I mean, I get a lot of pleasure. It gives me a semi-final feeling. WARNOCK: Well, you certainly gave relegation a good go with my lot. MONK: I did my best, but my plan didn’t work at Middlesbrough. I was hoping to bankrupt them, but Mr Gibson found a Post-It note with my calculations of how many strikers I needed to buy to guarantee liquidation. He made me leave before I could finish the job. I did hope Tony Bent would finish what I started, but he spent all the money on defenders so they ended up drawing every game 0-0. Even the village idiot couldn’t find his way to League One. And then you came along with your mid-table mediocrity. [Hisses] You hero. WARNOCK: Hero? We’re tenth. And we’re bloody broke, thanks to you. I only found Watmore cos he was working in the local Sainsbury's garage when I went to fill up the Montego. His signing-on fee was a Big Mac meal cos he hadn’t eaten for three days. MONK: You’re still not going to be relegated, though. Such a disappointment. But my greatest project is Sheffield Wednesday. I've really put them through it, haven't I? Oh, that's managers for you; they always know which buttons to press. WARNOCK: The self-destruct one in your case. I still can’t believe what a shambles you made of that transfer kitty. I’m having to let Fletcher and Assombalonga leave for free cos we can’t afford to pay them any more. We've even prised all the 50p pieces out of the electricity meter, and it's still not enough. MONK [runs his tongue over his teeth]: I did my best. In the end, I couldn’t get Boro relegated, but I sowed the seeds of the club's decline. They'd be established in the Premier League if I hadn't buggered up the finances so much. Which means you'd be a Premier League manager, instead of a Championship one again. It was all me, Neil. It’s always been me. The author of all your pain. Scene 2: Int (Night) [The Warnock marital bed. Mrs W is wearing a Bri-Nylon nightie and an eye mask, sitting up as her husband rolls around screaming] MRS W [shaking Warnock awake]: Neil? Neil? Wake up! WARNOCK [trembling]: Oh God, that was awful. MRS W: The James Bond dream again? WARNOCK: Yes. But this time, the baddy was a snake. MRS W [calmly]: Oh, it was Monk this time, was it? You really need to stop eating Stilton before bed. You know it gives you nightmares. WARNOCK [rubbing eyes]: I'll give you nightmares. Have you seen my injury list? [Ends]   Match details: It’s a 3pm kick-off on Saturday, at ‘fortress’ Riverside.   Form guide: We’re mired in mid-table mediocrity, but Wednesday may be about to follow Boro’s example of being relegated due to a points deduction. At least their descent will be less high-profile than their near neighbours United, who are about to follow Boro’s example of being relegated with less than 30 points.   View from the other side: No MDT from the familiar-looking Owlstalk forum yet, but there is a thread called “Colin loves us really”, which is worth a read.   Questions for the audience: 1.       Who makes your starting XI? 2.       Given Connor Malley’s man-of-the-match debut, which other youngsters would you like to see in the squad/team? 3.       If you could only choose one, would you prefer to see Wednesday or Derby go down?
