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

Recommended Posts

theres one glaring type o player were desperate for and thatsan attaing midfielder or rather a lin player from midfield to the attack. someonethat can dictate things if you like. 

juninho,merson tomlin,souness,are all such playersthat stand out on previous sides that filled this role. its all well crying out for wingers but for every downing theres a hamill. its pretty much a lucy dip how well they will perform and how consistantly. 

morsy may ea important addition as he is capable of controlling the rear and centre part of midfield from wat ive seen of him,but the gaping void is still 15 yards higher upfield .

not convinced tonight with spence and his positional sence. hes extremely raw and we needto strengthen the squad in the role he filled .

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 😂).

Not sure why we are looking so hard for two strikers as a priority. You could put Harry Kane and lewandowski up front for us and we wouldn’t score. It’s the creativity which is the problem, Britt and fletcher are perfectly good strikers and I reckon many teams in the league would like a front two as good as them!

We had creativity and width at the back end of last season with Roberts and also recently with Traore so I wouldn't say it's been 3years, but yes I agree we need a lot of pace and directness in our team.

I personally think we need more than just one option in the squad. From memory, Roberts and Traore weren't in the same squad.

True Forest have just spent that Matty Cash money to get him. But I feel Gibson is using Financial Fair play to no longer invest in the squad like he use to. 

Gibson puts in the maximum that the rules allow, hence he wants everyone to play by the rules.

We have always struggled to sign width and pace, I know they are rare commodities but we don't even get bad ones

last time was when we had caroyal and adomah, i think they score 20 goals between them until caroyal got injured and pretty much finished his career

Roberts aside, I can only think of Marvin Johnson as an attempt at purchasing a wide player. It's actually mad

i think Johnson has been at the club long enough for us to know that he dosent really play any position.

We’ve still got other targets, and I’m hoping that Neil (Bausor) can get one or two over the line in the next few weeks.

Sounds like there's no more watching videos to be done and we just go down the list he handed to Bausor.

I am interested to see the names that come out for the striker targets in the next week he missed out on a guy he's eyed for 3 years in Sanogo, an opportunity signing in Moore and probably priced out of Zohore will be interesting what player crops up.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
