We could always get some and then play them.

I would prefer us to play with wingers. But it’s not going to happen.

Quite probably right but it should be happening.

Itll be bonkers to not sign any like

Forced into a new formation because of garbage recruitment so instead of fixing the problems we'd accentuate them, fill the squad with wing backs and no full backs/wingers for the next manager even though our current one, in an ideal world, wouldn't play wing backs 🤯

I know its early but the way Boro play with wing backs we will be damned lucky to avoid relegation.

I’ve seen the wing back system played well, Chelsea being the main example. When you watched that team Alonso and Moses were causing problems for 90 minutes, our wingbacks simply aren’t good enough to make the system effective.

Blackwells comments of needing 2-3 more signings indicates that he either doesnt have a clue, or isnt telling the truth, otherwise it will look like we are panicking.

I don’t mind wingbacks in a back 4, either playing 433 or a 442 diamond, but I hate the idea of playing them with 3 CBs in a 532, that just leaves us short of any creativity.

Neil if you are reading this, death or glory man, death or glory!

It isn't even as though we need to buy people like Murphy for millions of pounds.  Mowbray found Carayol for a fraction of the cost to bring Murphy in and although it didn't work out in the end, he had one great season with us.  There must be hidden gems in the lower divisions.

Why?

Warnock said the exact same thing.

Because we need at least 5 sihnings not 2-3. If either Blackwell or Warnock think that is going to sort our problems, then they are both deluded. I understand it might be down to the lack of money but its a fact.

Blackwell's words were:

"For me, looking at it I would say two or three, maybe more, to give us that little bit of strength in depth that we need"

I think it goes without saying that the management team would like more than 2-3 additions, but it probably won't happen.

They'll take as many as they can.

If we end the window having made 6 signings, and don't sell any players, it'll have been okay.

Not a great window, but we'll have had worse.

if we add 3 quality players in the right positions it improves the whole team, adding 5 would disrupt it - though there isn't much to disrupt.

Thanks. I never heard that he had said  "maybe more". I can understand 2-3 if we cant afford any more than that, but we do need more. I understand we might have to make do with less.

there will probably be more from the written and radio press interviews, that happen after the main press conference.

As has been said on here cards will be being kept very close to chests.
