Do we stand a much better chance at getting promotion than QPR?

Grant Hall seems to think so

I wouldn't mind Mendez-Laing from Cardiff.

Younger and also only has 1 year left on his contract.

Having seeing both Hoilett and Mendez-Laing a lot over the last few years I'd definitely prefer the former, much more consistent and rarely goes missing in games.

If Hoilett signed a new contract when Cardiff got promoted to the PL, he will probably be on far higher wages than we can afford. Plus i would imagine Cardiff will want quite a high fee for him even if he has only got one year of his contract still to run.

I don't think there is much in the story anyway, it is just the Gazette filling pages. The headline says we have identified him as a potential summer signing, all that means is we have written his name down on a list of possible targets.

 

I don't know about that. The Gazette have broken this story, as far as I'm aware. They're very rarely first with transfer news, and normally only report it and attribute it elsewhere.

The fact that they've confidently announced this link makes me think they have some solid info from somewhere. It wouldn't surprise me if it was quite close.

Is hoilett the only player the gazzette have come up with themselves? Interesting if it is

All I could find on his wages was when he initially joined he took a huge cut from his QPR deal and was on 20k per week 17-18, then came promotion signed a new deal consensus seems to be at most he's on 25k a week right now at Cardiff. Their fans seem to value him at around 2 million if that's an indication of Cardiff's stance this seems immensely doable to me?

My guess is we'll offer him less per week than what he's on maybe around 20k and balance that by offering him a 3 year deal, the figures don't seem too crazy for me and like Tom said the Gazette don't pull the trigger on this stuff lightly.

He's got a peach of a right foot would be a great fit roaming around Britt I think he'd be a great signing for us.

If Ince was on loan, and we were only paying a portion of his wage, I'd take him. Ince and Hoilett on either flank would be the most natural width we've seen at the Boro for many years.

Sounds far too costly for our bank account though.

I wouldn't touch Ince with a barge pole, personally. Hasn't been good for ages. Give him a chance if he turns up like anyone. But I wouldn't expect much from him.

Archetypal Warnock signing then, aye!?

I know what you mean as the Gazette daren't write anything that might upset the club. So they don't usually print anything about transfers like this unless there is something in it.

But it is just that their wording is so non committal and vague when they say "identified as a potential summer singing".

It is rare EG break transfer news without a degree of certainity. Also in article confirm we want Luke Amos.

If we could manage hoilett on the left and roberts on the right id be very happy to be honest. From what we've had in the last few years thats a massive upgrade.

    • 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.
    • Classic Dani 🤦‍♂️
    • My comment about the £20K a week contracts was in response to Grimsby Boro's revelation that over 150 championship players are to be out of contract in the summer meaning that those players whose contracts are ending will be highly unlikely to find new suitors willing to meet let alone exceed their existing deals. The implication being that Boro and other cash struck clubs could pick up  players this summer at a lot lower cost than they are presently being paid or indeed may be offered elsewhere if they are presently at Boro. Nobody likes to see anyone down on their uppers. Whether you earn £200 a week or £20,000 we all live, budget and mortgage within our means. For me personally it has been heart breaking to see the Maserati, Lambo and prancing horse all repossessed along with the 70 foot Yacht anchored in Monaco. The penthouse in Vegas is also going for a song if anyone has the odd £2.5M spare before the bailiffs move in. At this rate I'll end up in a four bed detached in Ingleby with a Mondeo on the drive. As I type the wife's red soled shoes are up on ebay and the girlfriend's Rolex is on Gumtree. I just hope the mistress can hack the Travelodge instead of the Grosvenor.
