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 😂).

That is near enough our whole tally last season from three players...

Tbf am not asking a lot from them 3 forwards. Am asking britt to add 4 goals to his tally in what i hope will be a season where he plays more.

I reduced fletchers tally as i think he and Akpom are the two who will rotate more to partner britt

I agree it’s not too much to ask. Just thought it was funny to put into perspective how *** we were last season again 😂

Assuming we stick with 5-3-2, which is absolutely inivtable - I wonder if it's Warnock's intention to play 2 'creative' midfielders behind the 2 strikers, with Morsy as the pivot. As oppose to Morsey being 1 of 2 primarily defensive CMs and a #10 making up the 3.

Tav, Browne, new AM - and, very much a push to call either traditionally creative, but also Wing and Saville - making up a 5 competing for 2 'creative' spots. With Howson very much the utility man to plug gaps / Morsy's back-up, as oppose to start.

I could get behind that more than 2 out-n-out defensive CMs in this system.

Don't think we have to stick with 532 to be honest 

523 {343} is also an option with what we have.

I’m looking forward to seeing akpom, sounds like he will add something we haven’t had in the team for years. He will sit deeper and allow Britt to move further up and play his more natural game. When I first seen we had bid for akpom I admit I was surprised but now I’ve looked closer it makes sense.

For those of you who have not seen this lad play, I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised. A really good signing at a reasonable price, now let’s work on changing our plodding midfield to give our strikers a chance

He'll suffer from a lot of neck injuries in that case as he watches the ball sailing over his head over and over again.

I imagine he will be the target of the long balls so maybe more head injuries than neck.

Are we actually a long ball side though? 9th highest in the league according to who scored, less than Birmingham and Karanka ball

9th for Long passes but 20th for short passes. 14th for average possession and 5th for aerial duels won. I'd say those metrics probably point to us being a long ball team.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
