Wait what! Damn I shouldn’t have become a plumber after watching all those scenes with pretty girls answering the door and helping getting the job done. 

ARE YOU SMOGDANE IN DISGUISE?

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 😂).

Purely speculation but I have just allowed a Leicester City fan to join the forum, maybe he has news or a comment about potential players going there or from there to here! to you, to me suits you sir🤪

I’d take Damarei Gray thank you. Or just Albrighton 😎

Baba Rahman is interesting very attacking full winger played as winger but spent more time on the treatment table than Kevin Thomson😂

My guy said he was a very good crosser, which we all know we are lacking right now!

Honestly amazed how long they are taking to announce Roberts, especially after Warnock openly admitting it was pretty much done. 

Don't think there's a rush. When are the players back for training?

Is it just Boro fans who believe literally everything they read on the internet? Or are all football fans like this? 

If the club fail to make the signings we read about on the internet we are calling for bausers head as his negotiation skills mustn't be up to scratch 😄

What would be the point?  We sign Roberts to take the place of a midfielder and then we sign another midfielder when we have one fewer spot available in the team?  Unless we are switching it up to 4 at the back I guess, then you might want 3 in midfield and Roberts playing further forward?

I agree, it probably is lazy journalism but I think Browne will be off and probably Wing. Replacing those two with Roberts and Mowatt would make sense.

As for Roberts I have no idea why it hasn’t been announced yet. He’s been training for the last two days, maybe they just don’t see making an official announcement as a priority?

I feel like it'd be worth loaning Wing out considering he can't get in the side now.

Saville will probably be rested against Reading, but I'm still not sure Warnock would play Wing.

I actually forgot Wing played for us!

I hope we get that Baba or a LB in so we can go back to playing 4 at the back 😄

we'd definitley need a decent CB on loan for that formaion to be sustainable.

Maybe it's Benković eyeing up his next move 👀

    • 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.
