Warnock's pre match press conference is tomorrow I think will probably get clarity on anything other than Bettinelli being close or whether he was talking about Bettinelli as the 1 arrival expected before Watford.

Sanogo is the one he was talking about, I think Bettinelli has moved quicker than expected as Fulham seem to be homing in on their own GK target.

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 😂).

Of course we have to sell him given the situation. But the situation being that we hired a keeper we don't want and a manager who's only here for a year leaves me feeling very uncomfortable about letting Pears leave this summer. If we had a long-term manager in place and he made this call, I wouldn't be anywhere near as bothered.

So, what if he signed a long-term contract, sat on the bench all season and a new manager comes in next year and feels the same about him as Warnock? 

Warnock's approach is a breath of fresh air. No messing about. You are in or you're gone.

It sounds as though Pears has made the decision as he wants first team football.

I Don’t get it about Pears at all, he’s never given me any confidence  .. Stoj is a better keeper and Betinelli is an upgrade on Stoj so we have moved forward .. incremental improvement is what we need , it’s what Aitor preached and instilled in the club and it worked until we got a load of money and tried to make a step change. Given our current budgetary constraints it’s the best approach. 

I would think Warnock knows this and being a canny operator thinks he can probably get a uptick in results that far outweighs the investment we seem to be making or capable of making at the moment.

if he does achieve the above his reputation will be enhanced or at least intact at the end of next season..

Sanogo will either be an addition to a long line of Boro Striker flops or become a surprise package under Warnock. He replaces Gestede in the squad so we certainly can't be any worse off but financially we will be considerably better off so that's a positive in itself. If we insist on having a permacrock non scoring Striker in our ranks it may as well be a cheap one.

From what I saw, Pears put in more than a few good performances. Yes he made mistakes, but he's young and it was his first real run in the senior team. I reckon he could have come good and been our first choice keeper in another season or two.

But circumstances being what they are, I guess we couldn't wait to find out...and seemingly he didn't want to wait either.

Its just sad whenever we have an academy lad who looks like they could become a permanent fixture, only to end up being sold.

Maybe because Sanogo comes in with no expectations he might actually turn out good? Here’s hoping that the striker formula is reversed. 
 

Happy with Bettenelli also. I think he will offer a sturdy pair of hands and it’s no shame to lose out to Rodak either. 
 

Hopefully get Morsy and Woodrow over the line and I think that it’s a relatively cheap window but plugging some solid players in gaps. 
 

By far a completed squad, but certainly one which will move in the right direction.

I would like to see something original like a large cake being wheeled into the press conference and pulchritudinous young ladies leaping out with shirts showing the names of the new players...................but I am never that lucky so it will be the usual Bausor photo ...no imagination....Snowy should be able to cast a proper unveiling..featuring several close ups and optical effects...and some glimpses of the players as well

I've everything crossed for this one. I remember in football manager (I think 2010 or 2011) he fired boro to champions league glory as one of the best strikers in the world under me. Ill settle for the championship for now and think about the champions league in 2 or 3 years time!

He's like Bambi on ice, hopefully hes gotten better since I last saw him, would be buzzing with Woodrow and a new deal for fletcher
