Take your tent and get to Rockliffe, stat!

Is that what the police refer to as "loitering within tent"?

The update is also on the first page and is being kept relatively up to date - every couple of days or so.

I would love John Lundstram at Middlesbrough. Not only is he a FPL legend after his heroics last season but he would fit nicely in midfield. However, there is absolutely no chance that he drops down to the Championship though.

Aye, there's 5 PL clubs enquiring about him apparently.

It’s worth adding that Ben Gibson’s Mrs is a model and spends a lot of time in London for her work. Although Boro will be his main choice I don’t think he wouldn’t completely consider a different move should a London club come in for him. Granted Norwich is just as long a commute as Boro but it’s worth noting if other links start to materialise.

State of play on the incomings from the latest reporting:

Kieffer Moore - Cardiff haven't matched his personal terms, Gazette say Boro sources think it's near 50 50 who he would choose but Warnock is hopeful.

Luke Amos - Boro and QPR have agreed to Spurs' price, TalkSports QPR fan and senior reporter says Amos is set for QPR but that was 3-4 days ago gone pretty quiet. Warnocks not given up, still pushing to get him.

Charlie Goode - Northampton's asking price of 1 million putting everyone off as it stands.

Junior Hoilett - Warnock has opened talks with Cardiff about signing Hoilett, given his relationship you'd think he's sounded Junior/his agent father about it. No indication yet of the price or what the deal would look like.

Guess it's a day to day thing with alot of these but seems reasonable Warnock wants these names off the board in the next week one way or the other so he can move on as we get into pre season.

I know its early days still but its alittle concerning that Hoilett is the only winger that we've been linked with

If you're a footballer and your girlfriend isn't a model, you're doing something wrong! 😉

I'll tell you a little story. The night before the play-off final we stayed in the Watford Hilton. I was surprised to find many Norwich fans staying there also. It turns out that it took them as long to get to Watford from Norwich as it did me from Teesside. Geographically, Norwich is in a hellish place 🤣

    • The thing that gets me is if Swansea had sportsmanship they would of let us walk the ball in for a draw like Bielsa did a few years ago but they didn't as they are cheaters hope they aren't promoted horrible club with cocky fans who are attacking Bolasie asking for VAR 
    • Straight down the middle. He would have saved it if he'd remained his normal  statuesque self. He must go at the end of the season. Dud!
    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
