In his BBC Tees interview he sounded very confident on another as well.

I'd not heard that clip from Warnock before, sounds like he's wanting to ship Marcus Browne out on loan again.

Yeah I was surprised by that discussion from Warnock that him and Browne don’t really fully know his best position in this team and preferably, he would be out on loan again to play a full season. 

Did say he has been impressed by him as well and if he can slot him in with Browne being happy with a new position he might be decent  

Guess it depends who comes in but he remarked it will be a very last minute call, not sure if he actually said January at the very end but not 100%.

I thought the same about Browne. He’s always played in midfield hasn’t he? Either out wide or through the middle but Warnock seems to see him more as a forward? It’s a shame for Browne because I think he could be very good for us.

Fantastic news about Patrick Roberts, any indication on the position of the other player he was confident on?

It’s brilliant news regarding Roberts. I’m assuming that is why Warnock has publicly stated that he is open to Browne leaving on loan. I’m sure Roberts signing imminently indicates that the 4-3-3 formation is going to be the template now, so we may be looking for another winger and a more solid left back. That’s in addition to us clearly needing another CB too.

"It will just give us something different. I thought he had some good games for us last season, and I thought he had some mediocre games too. The thing is, he’s not going anywhere else.  I think Manchester City have made that clear to him, so once many again, it’s up to me to get the best out of him.  He might not start every game, but we’ve got so many games coming up and we only had 18 players today so we are very thin."

Christ, it doesn't sound like he was overjoyed at the possibility of coming back 😄

Mentions roberts then pauses and says "probably another one as well"

He does sound confident there but in the Gazette piece he says there's no other deals close

And he says that he wants Roberts to play behind the striker (not strikers) in the 3-5-2 formation

Hmm. Maybe when he was talking about the other signing he meant before the domestic window closes?

Sounds like we wont be seeing Tav central very much he said he thinks he's better with a line by the side of him guess he's a wingback option now?

He's not wrong on Roberts' consistency he had some very mediocre games for us but he's different than what we have and off a striker he could be deadly.

I actually agree with him on tav. We've seen a lot of him now and a couple of previous managers have said his best position is in the centre but I think his best and most effective games for us have been wide. He's a winger imo. Not convinced of him in a right wingback role though, its going to give dijksteel a LOT of work to do.

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
