The Summer/Autumn transfers thread 2020 aka TURN DOWN FOR WHAT(more)

Recommended Posts

Our announcements are always 12:30 or 5:00. Perhaps Bettinelli 12:30 and Sanogo 5:00?

So who do we still have and actively working on?

Morsy, Woodrow, Robert's? Anyone else?

Assuming Sanogo and Bettinelli are done.

RAF, Lurker?

How many previous managers are now having the same problem, they seem fine being able to get the players up here even staying over so i dont see the 'club or area as the problem' only my view but its got to be when they sit down to negotiate, if going by what we are led to believe we have healthy wage budget to use so maybe the main issue is the agent fees and we know how gibson feels about these.

Scott Wilson said no other signings apart from Bettinelli expected before Watford game

This Sanogo must be taking the mick if we're still negotiating after all this time.

It doesn't sound like we are still negotiating, it sounds like it's only the medical left

This is my feeling as well. From what Warnock has said though the agents and players are living in cloud cuckoo land. Obviously he has got to put a positive spin on it but to be fair I don't see all these players we've "missed out on" rocking up anywhere else on huge bumper contracts (except Sheff Wed apparently...). There are loads of free agents around that seem to be struggling to get signed as well. They don't seem to realise we are in COVID times and everyone is going to be cautious with their money.

Give it some time, things will start moving towards the end of the window. Just hopefully they'll start moving for us too.

I read an article this am stating numerous clubs in the championship are facing bankruptcy due to HMRC demanding their deferred tax. This amounts to 4-5million per club. This is bound to have an impact on our recruitment I would have thought. If HMRC are going to push this I am sure there will be bargains to be had later in the window if we are in a position to add to our costs. After reading that I am more resigned to having to wait.

People have been saying that he's been due for/doing his medical for days.

Not that I'd expect him to play against Watford, he'll be very short of match fitness with the amount of time he's had off.

FootballInsider have been a step ahead of our locals this summer they broke our Morsy interest and Sanogo talks so if someone's told them he's set for a medical Thursday evening I'm inclined to believe it.

Warnock says Grant Hall was agreed basically before he came to the club, which is interesting.

    • Well it's game day and finally I am looking forward to watching the Boro again. Yes the games come thick and fast but it is a bonus when you really do look forward to the matches. Such a difference a year makes. 3 away points are due so why not today? UTB!
    • @Redcar Rioja I'd start with the same team that started against Derby, partly for the reasons you mentioned above in terms of ability for NW to control the game. But also I can imagine the first 60 minutes of today being a very tight game. Huddersfield play a similar style to us in terms of a man to man system (If you believe the Brentford head coach), and I can envisage them being compact in defence and matching us 1 on 1. With Roberts, Tav and Whatmore behind the lone striker they (in my opinion) are more likely to unlock a compact defence than if Johnson or Spence were starting. If we can entice Huddersfield to push forwards and move away from their marking style later in the game, that's when I'd bring Johnson and Spence on, that way they can exploit the space that will open up. If we can nick a goal before that point Huddersfield may open up sooner in pursuit of the equaliser.  I think the first goal today will decide the winner of the game. I have a hunch we'll win this game 0-2.
    • Wrong George, I meant Saville, where on earth did Friend come from???? Subliminal thinking, instinctively programmed for years, that of course and I hadn't had my coffee yet! 😁 Clearly gone but not forgotten.  
    • Oh dear mate. I have some bad news to tell you about Friend 🙁
    • With the amount of Subs now allowed I wouldn't be surprised if NW threw the gauntlet down to Roberts and Watmore after the Johnson and Spence cameos the other night and started with them again. With match fitness a question mark over both I would guess he would rather start with them and then plan to take them off when tiring rather than maybe having to put them on early as a Sub if an injury occurred. Warnock seems very protective of his players and the risk of them picking up injuries which is why I think he may start with Roberts and Watmore as it gives him more in-game control. The obvious choice would be if he started with those that finished on Wednesday night but I suspect he will want to keep morale high across the squad and keep faith in Watmore and Roberts knowing that he can fall back on Johnson and Spence. Whatever he goes with he has my confidence and trust which is something I don't think I have felt about a Boro Manager in a very long time.
