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 😂).

Look at the transfer market, look at the state of football in general and look at what Warnock has said in the press this week, this is entirely fans creating their own hype and then getting depressed when it doesn't happen.

It's literally the same pattern every season: hype from manager saying he wants additions>posters harassing ITK posters>taking every whisper as gospel>disappointment when players don't sign straightaway>blame a fabled recruitment team

Rinse and repeat every year

i know the transfer markets bad, im not blaming warnock, im just saying i dont think unwarranted that some fans are once again annoyed  by the clubs transfer dealings or lack there of. 

also we have had good windows in the past before relgation, signing plenty of players, this saying we need to sign players and failing to do so is a fairly new problem that arose during the pulis era.

Apparently it's a 2 year deal with an option for a 3rd. Seems like a great deal for him.

I wonder if we offered a shorter term? At his age the longer the better

If that's true absolutely no wonder he'd take that, there's no way I'd have been offering him a deal till 34.

If what we are led to believe is that we have some money this summer, then I can understand for once the "lack of activity". The longer fans aren't allowed in the stadiums the more desperate teams are going to be to stay afloat financially meaning selling may become more essential in later weeks. Also with free agents I think you will see more power in the clubs hands than the players when negotiating deals.

Have to agree to disagree on this one, our recruitment hasn't been great but our circumstances have changed, we have no parachute payments and we as a fan base need to accept that.

Signing players is not easy for a club of our position and that is especially so in this climate, we can't compare to when we were the biggest spenders in the league

That said its not ideal preparation for the season not having players in for the start of it.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
