Why has all this information come out about his fitness now. Surely if he had been here a while those ITK would have said something before the deal broke down. Just wondering.

Someone else lined up I reckon

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 😂).

I met a scout last season.

On the train back from Birmingham away there was a fella opposite me and my mate sat with all sorts of notes, formations, charts etc. He started chatting to us and asking what we thought of the game (if anyone remembers, we were *** atrocious). Anyway, I naturally ask if he's a boro fan. He says no. I ask if he's a Birmingham fan. He says no. At this point I'm thinking he's some journo. He then starts asking what we think of some specific players. First it was Bamford, I said I loved him. Then he asked about Saville - now, I currently think he's decent but at the time I thought he was poor so slagged him off a fair bit. Eventually he mentioned that he left at 75 minutes, at which point it clicked that he must be a scout. Finally managed to pry it out of him that he was a Chelsea scout looking at Jude Bellingham. Said he'd scouted Bamford and Saville back in the day - I felt bad for slagging off Saville so much lol. Obviously he's on the more glamorous end of the scouting spectrum but from that experience it looked like a pretty sound job.

 

EDIT: He said he hated stats. That was why I started writing the post cause thought it was interesting to hear that from a scout. Somehow forgot to mention it...

Patrick Roberts would be my No.1 target now Sanogo's fallen through. He's not a striker but would provide us with a different option behind the strikers.

Aye, could play as a 10 in a front 2, but with a slightly deeper Free Role. Tav linking the midfield and attack would give Roberts the freedom to float into wider positions on occasion too.

Mejias to Dinamo Bucharest is a season long loan wtf, I thought it was a free transfer?

Didn’t the website that linked the transfer say he would become their highest earner? I wonder if we had to do it as a loan because we are paying some of his salary? ( I know we could pay him off, if that is case, but there could be tax issues or the like that affect that option)

Do you mean similar to the role Braithwaite played at the start of 18/19 behind Britt? Cause I'd definitely back Roberts there.

Actually, aye. Plays to Roberts strengths moreso than it did Braithwaite too, and seemed to get a lot out of Britt too.

We currently only have 2 senior strikers at the club, so even if we could do with Roberts creativity we certainly still need a striker. We can't go until january with only Britt and Fletcher.

This'd do... Can rotate those front men as needed. Roberts unlikely to play 46 games, so still plenty of chances for others. Screenshot_20200911-130508__01.thumb.jpg.10f590da6b6dd73ea88f955da0f4caec.jpg

F me, Hoffman can do one. guys i remember watching the cherrys back when he was there and i swear i have never seen a striker as *** poor as him on tv ever. he couldnt trap a bag of cement, his second touch was a tackle, etc etc. absolute garbage. i recall someone at the time even saying they knew he'd fail over here. might have been one of the danes.

He’s never played for Bournemouth and I doubt anyone knew much about him before he played over here.

    • West Brom are about to appoint Valerian Ismael from Barnsley as their manager. I'd say that could potentially be a good appointment.
    • Kind of ironic that Boro then ended up in a similar situation with Karanka...though I'm guessing he was nowhere near as bad as Magath.  
    • Be proud and be strong. It does hurt but never forget that he's a dad and you're a grandad. Always say her name and never ever forget her. You never will. I am a proud dad of 4 beautiful children even if one is an angel. Be strong and remember that people around will always care. Much love and support.  Trekkers xxxxxxx
    • Really poignant for me this.  My eldest son's partner had to give birth to their first child yesterday even though she had passed away in the womb on friday.   Tragic and devastating for us all but the way in which he has handled himself in the last few days is incredible.   So whilst it hurts like hell, a very proud father.  
    • I'm surprised that Gestede has actually managed 178 games in his career so I just checked and according to Wiki he has managed 284 games over his entire career which for a 32 year old isn't many. Smith at three years younger has played 410 games so at least he may be available for selection instead of sending in a sick note. They both seem to have a 1:4 ratio which isn't great but much more useful if fit and available and that's before we consider the respective costs involved for fees and wages.
