Nothing new then....throw enough **** at the wall. I’m on about Nixon btw not yourself, he tends to just report on stories which are already in the public domain. 

The longer we go on with no news the more concerning the situation will become. Have no doubt that Warnock will be chewing Bausor’s ear off to get players in but let’s face it we don’t have the pulling power we once used too. No parachute payments and we probably have to sell before we can buy.

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 😂).

Hope this Glazer is a proper ball winning, nasty, defensive mid if the link is true been missing that what Clayton did 2014-16 for us 

Midfield 3 of Tav---Glazer---Howson behind a front 3 of Hoilett---Fletcher---Murphy? Now you're talking 

All ifs, buts and maybes with our recruitment though

Absolutely, that's why I think it'll be one of those two.

I honestly thought the Glazer link was his agent trying to get him a move to Watford. Watched a video and he certainly seems to graft. Even when 3 up in the 90th minute he was still quickly closing down. Seems to have a good work ethic if that video is representative.

The Murphy twin that was at Sheff Wed last season.

The Newcastle lad? I thought they paid about £8m for him a couple of years ago. Could sort out the right hand side if we fail to get Roberts back

Boro and Bristol City are ‘battling to sign’ Wigan midfielder Joe Williams in a £2.5m deal, reports @TheSunFootball.

Ok so he's a central midfielder whose good around the box, either someone's getting sold, Bulkhaul's making record profits we don't know about or the Americans are paying.

Good player though, if it's true.

Meanwhile, Bristol City and Middlesbrough are battling to sign Wigan midfielder Joe Williams, 23, in a £2.5m deal.

The Robins wanted to take the former Everton youngster for less than his fixed fee but Boro have come in to raise the bar.

So it's a fixed fee of 2.5 million no higher due to relegation, the way Nixon writes it we've swooped into Bristols negotiation and inched closer to that fixed fee with what we're offering.

When I posted my stats graphs, I actually compiled the stats for Williams and Mokotjo, neither were particularly standout. What I will say is Williams is only 19 so has plenty of potential. Mokotjo was really poor (statswise).

Where did you get the data for the graphs dan. You should put them up for each we are linked with for comparison. Good work 👍

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
