I notice Curtis Main has scored tonight for Aberdeen in a European competition

Christ, I didn't realise he was at that high a level still.

He's got a fairly similar record to most of the players we have been linked with recently.  If he was Scottish and had never played for Boro we'd be just as enthusiastic about him as Ross whatisface from Ross County.

Not really.  Shankland is the one that keeps popping up - his record is far beyond Main's.

Ross County nonsense was from that troll.

I'd love us to sign Shankland, but I was comparing him to people we have actually been linked to like Ross Stewart

Can you show me some actual links to Shankland - I thought the link to him was from the troll.

We haven't actually been linked with any of them to be fair, it's all just rumours off here or other forums

That said even Ross Stewart has a record better than Main's

No.  But that's the name that people keep mentioning.  

Ross County was a Thor special and thus complete nonsense.

I’m guessing as Stewart didn’t show and Sanogo is the one taking the ***.

We need a manager that appeals to the players.

Notice Karanka has started raiding Spain for Brum.

    • 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.
