Why all this Britt hate we been over this time and time again we don't play to his strengths he is lucky to get 1 chance a game thus as he is a championship striker inorder to score he needs multiple chances so does miss a fair few.  But if he was one shot one kill he would not be at Middlesbrough 🙃. Warnock is trying to get his confidence back by him being made captain so he feels like the main man that hopefully leads to his best goal scoring season for us 🥅

Exactly. We did over pay for him but that's not the lads fault is it? He is as good as any striker in this league.

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 😂).

Fair criticism is not hate....for his fee, he should be more involved ...trying to win ball, making runs to create space for others...passing to people in better positions..not just hanging around in the middle of the pitch..if he put himself about as much as his team mates, he would score more, but his movement is usually in areas that make him easy to block out ...you can't play to one person's strengths without weakening the team overall as every opponent will know how to neutralise us, if he can become a team player then we will be much more dangerous ..he has the strength to hold the ball and play people in, he just seems to lack the inclination sometimes

He quite often does put himself about though, especially under Warnock his work rate has gone through the roof.

I don't think he's the best keeper out there but for our budget I'm happy with him, also has a year left on his contract (but Fulham hold an option for an extra year) so if he does do well good chance we could make it permanent which is always nice with loan players.

I'd rather take him than pay over the odds for Phillips.

So maybe Warnock was not bullshi**ng us when he said I did not ring Charlton about Phillips. They mentioned him to me.

Stoj can have any form of worldie he wants. Warnock does not want him.

    • I don't really equate that Schick goal as being a 'screamer' from distance, though. Same with the Beckham goal from the half-way line. If I'm remembering correctly, Charlie Adam and Xabi Alonso scored similar ones, those goals took skill for sure but I just wouldn't put them in the same 'long-range screamer' category of those where the keeper was actually in a position to try to save the shot. Like those where the player spots the keeper off their line and give it a go and the keeper just tips it over. The first thing that comes to mind to me is what the hell was he doing so far off his line to begin with. Might make a Herculean effort to sprint back and adjust his body to tip it over but was often their own fault for having to do that at all!
    • We paid nearly 3mil on akpom last summer and we were more hamstrung with wages then, so I'm not sure it can be ruled out

    • just because we get one doesn't mean we can't get the other ...    Smith only fills one hole
    • no, we're not paying 1.2m for Smith.
