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 😂).

@Changing Times. Warnock said he plans to use Roberts where he been asking Tav to play. So what he referring to as the "hole" is what we fans understand to be the advanced central midfielder out the middle 3.

Thus its been Howson and Sav with Tav further up supporting the 2 strikers.

I assume when Roberts plays it will be him and 2 out of Howson Sav and Morsy. 

A 3.5.2 or 3.4.1.2 if you like.

I hope Roberts doesn't mean Tav is benched as Tav shooting at the goal got us the goal against Barnsley. 

Didn’t he set up both goals with his long range shooting?
 

Personally I’m not fussed about Roberts, he’s too selfish on the ball, he needs to learn to pick out a decent pass, rather than running down blind alleys.

If Tav is playing RWB I can't see him being benched for Roberts, who is certainly not going to play there.

Although I'd ideally like two specialist wing backs if Warnock wants to continue with 3-5-2 we should have enough to comfortably secure mid table if we get Roberts. I don't think we are going to see much of the 4-3-3 formation as he seems to like playing Akpom and Britt together up front and neither can really play out wide. I know a lot have said that Akpom can, but looking at his stats on Transfermarkt he's never really played on the wing. I suppose we could also play a traditional 4-4-2 with Tav and Robers on the wings. But let's get the Roberts deal wrapped up asap and move along.

Mate if you think we wont get comfortable mid table without roberts you are mental. its pretty obvious we will be top half anyway. i've seem champo football for years now and even though we have been badly let down in the wing backs positions so far and still kind of out of sorts.  we still look hard to beat and have been the better side for the majority of all the games so far. lighten up, we'll be pushing play offs as it is, i guarantee it.

Ben Godfrey, ex-Boro academy, has just signed for Everton from Norwich.

I never knew we had him. We usually get it right when releasing youngster but he one we got wrong i guess...

I don't think we will be comfortably top half with the current squad. I don't think that's mental at all. As you say we are not blessed with real talent at wing backs, we have very little creativity and pace hence we are very predictable. Top that off with a threadbare squad that's only a few injuries away from fielding acadmy lads with not real experience. To think we will be pushing for play offs with this squad is metal😄
