Change the topic title to (we broke the Morsy code) 

I hope we can expect Inspector Morsy to use his impressive detective skills to figure out how to break down opposition teams.

Good news from the Boro today now cap it off with a win and watch them come running to sign

I'd just reject them all out of spite, even if it harmed our chances 😂

Maybe we should try doing something else then?

Direct diagonals and crosses in the box has been his way his whole career I don't think he'll change his ways now CT as the saying goes you can't teach a 71 year old shithouse new tricks we just have to hope we get a Glatzel or Zohore rather than be stuck with a Madine come October.

Yeah, which is why he shouldn't be our manager 😒

Who's next in the door after Morsy? With Sanogo's deal falling through are we likely to push harder for Woodrow? I'd like us to get a left-footed CB as soon as possible too.

Just hope the only advice Mido inevitably gives him is where to live, if Mido starts giving him parmo recommendations we're doomed!

I wonder how low the fee is there's speculation Wigans end we paid 450k with 45k going to Chesterfield as a sell on 😬

What a steal if true

But who else could we have realistically got in, in time for the start of the season (also bearing our financial limitations in mind)?

Anyone who can make us a decent mid-table team, until such time as Gibson feels ready to start being more adventurous, is okay by me.

Old-fashioned can still be effective...if not pretty or hugely successful...

We could have got lots of people in realistically.  What financial limitations do you think we have that the rest of the football world don't?  Outside of top flight clubs in a handful of countries, and the odd exception with rich owners trying to figure out how to circumvent the stupid FFP rules, everyone is in the same boat. 

Warnock isn't here to make us a decent mid-table team. 

I don't even know how to respond to the Gibson feels ready to start being more adventurous bit.

I agree with this, I'm not expecting miracles this season, but I do expect a better season than last. Warnock will definitely steady the ship, much more so than pulis.

Genuinely don't see the issues with diagonals and getting balls into the box

It's crap football would be my main issue 👍

I wasn’t over the moon with Warnock either but I’ve warmed to him. I don’t think I’ll ever be thrilled with that sort of appointment but it is what it is. 

Out of interest, who would you have chosen?

I'd rather play "crap" football and win ugly than play "good" football and lose to "crap" playing teams.

    • You wouldn't even get £2million that's the problem with 6months to run on contract but yeah I would get shot. Feel sorry for him as he's played as a lone striker more or less throughout his time at us and we have used him as a target man and that isn't his strength, however he constantly misses easy chances. Very poor signing especially you put into context he is our record signing 😂
    • I do wonder if Howson's new deal frees up some space on the wage front. Cant see why we would offer a new deal otherwise. 
    • Apart from possibly extending Watmore's contract I see precious little happening in this window
    • I’ll be paying the cash for this. I should’ve just bought the bloody season pass....   either way, I can’t see whatmore and roberts both starting, but I’m all for this being a Roberts game. I reckon we will be pressing high up the pitch, so having him on the ball in the final third would be perfect. Aside from that, both saville and McNair were visibly struggling towards the end of the last game, I reckon there might be some rested legs....
    • If we can offload someone then fine, I'm not sure how likely it is though.  Assombalonga will be on too much money I'd have thought and why pay any kind of transfer fee for a player you can get on a free transfer 6 months down the line.
