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😄

    • Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.
    • Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers. Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.
    • It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are.  If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him. Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.
    • I think you are reading and interpreting what you want to get angry about rather than what i actually said. I expect every manager to have his approval on all signings even Warnock, even though he wont be here in a years time. Peltier was signed as cover for Fisher who we knew was out for a long while, we absolutely needed him. He clearly can plug a gap, not ideal, but he did ok at LB. we absolutely needed another CB. McNair is useless in a back 4 but ok in a back 3. Like I say, I expect every manager to plan for their team and have their approval over the choice of an owner. As for Scott, we have no way of knowing how successful he will be, what his Job description is or how much autonomy he will have, you are peeing in the wind if you hazard an answer. Gibson has always been hands on,, i don’t see that changing sadly. Since 2006 the owners vision has been wrong more than right, as have his appointments. Don’t take that to mean I am ungrateful for his efforts, without him, we’d not have a club, but goodness me he is due a right decision. I know he is trying his utmost but is having to do so with an imbalanced squad. He does not sign players, that isn’t his job it is Gibson and Bausor that do a deal or walk away. They have tried hard to fix the final third with more pace, flair and finishing, unfortunately the defence has been holed as a result.    I am not suggesting Spence and Coulson were great players, but they are better than nothing. Are you suggesting Warnock prefers Jones as a LB to Coulson? He doesn’t, he is having to make do and mend.  We have no holding midfielder. Howson is doing a job but it is not his best position. He is not refusing to sign foreign left backs at all, you are spinning his comments. He said they haven’t found anyone that fits the bill after being unable to fund UK based LB’s. Why you interpret it as a refusal is odd when he had no say over Morsy and some other signings is beyond silly. Getting a player to agree to come knowing they are going to be mere cover, from abroad especially, in a pandemic too, when you have no money, will not be a doddle, it isn’t like a pic and mix at the cinema.    Get off his back and support his efforts for now, he is not trying to set us up to fail, he has the best record of any manager in the league, but that was with his mix of players, blame the players for their part in the poor performances too and the goals we concede. Warnock deserves some criticism but it needs to be for his failures, not those of others. You can rejoice his departure come May which isn’t long for you to wait. 
    • Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around. Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously. Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.
