Another defensive player. Are we going to go through another window where we don’t address our creativity fgs. 

We've literally just been linked with a Murphy brother.

Wouldn't be a transfer window without you wetting the bed 😂

I'm behind this link, I really want us to sign a proper defensive midfielder to play him behind howson and tav in a three. What I dont want to see is a defensive midfielder alongside howson and saville. That would be very pulis.

If we're signing defensive players on frees, it might mean we'll spend more on attacking players.

I think this is absolutely the case. We know we've tried to get a LB on a loan, a 6 figure fee for Amos and at CB we're bidding around 750k for Goode right now, then GK the favourite seems Phillips whose price is set at 800k we're not breaking the bank making any of these moves to bring in defensive bodies.

Offset the GK outlay with a Pears sale you can see the logic for Warnock, Murphy on a loan then maybe Hoilett and a 1-2 million pound striker you could be looking at a Karanka era splurge of around 4-5 million which I don't think breaks the bank especially if we can squeeze a couple of sales in there.

All successful sides are built off a solid defence, plus hes said he wants upto 6 players so I'd imagine 1 or 2 will be attack minded players

Seems like more rumours today than the past 2 weeks combined. I suppose a lot of players have been on holiday and now they’re back their agents are getting down to work.

Totally agree but in the last couple of windows we’ve brought in a lot of defensive players and always leave it too late to bring in any attacking players. I just hope history does not repeat itself.

Decent age. Championship experience. Free. Combine that with getting Grant hall on a free and thats a pretty tidy start to business this window.

Neil Harris is heavily implying we offered Moore better wage terms than he has signed at Cardiff.

"I'll be honest, he could've taken more lucrative offers from elsewhere in the country, but he wanted to come and play for Cardiff and he wanted to come and play for me. That's a big thing."

Guess that Cardiff pull for Moore did mean something, even when we offer the most money to players they find a way to go elsewhere! Sounds like we really are backing Warnock to the hilt though especially if it's true that Moore isn't even top 2 on the list...

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
