I've no doubt he's earning a bit of dosh here but why waste so much money on one year of Neil Warnock? It makes no sense if the whole reason he's here is to get us through cutting costs. Exactly the same way it didn't make sense when we paid Pulis a fortune to do it.

Just seen your other response, nvm hah.

Just trying to look at it from different angles

Nice, save the money and move some of the u23 guys up 

The club did say last year that was going to be a central philosophy at the club. We seem active in recruiting for the younger teams. When you look at the First team pics A few have been added from the u23s. That said we cannot throw more of them in until we add a few with more experience, steel and aggression.

Think he's on about Clayton but they haven't actually signed him yet.

Wouldn’t surprise me to see them sign Ayala as well

Doubt AK would want him after his comments about Ayala's mystery injuries

id counter this by saying how many other squads barely survived relegation last season with a thin squad, and have lost 5/6 senior players this summer while only bringing in one replacement?  i dont know the answer but i  assume not many, and for me, thats the real worry of this transfer window. 

Barnsley, Birmingham, Luton and Huddersfield all finished below us, three of them have signed 1 player and Birmingham have signed 4.  The transfer window still has a few weeks to go yet.

Leko is the only one I'm a bit bummed by, at 1m he seems like great value.

    • 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‚Äôt 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.
