Roberts has taken the no.19 shirt as he did last year for anyone who keeps an interest in squad numbers.

I think the pic of him holding the shirt was taken last week. 

He's wearing the same hoodie as the picture of him getting out of his car, from last week

 

Well if we are paying most of his wages, a weeks delay in a not insignificant saving. I do wonder whether that is one reason most of the loans from Premier League seem to be waiting to the last minute. I know a lot of transfers do get done on deadline day, but these potential loans are a bit different - it’s as much about getting the right experience for the loanees and playing time and its not as though the PL clubs are waiting to finalize their signings before deciding  who to loan out.

I like to think the word allegedly is the key word 

Not really, I was more concerned about the intent from the club rather than the belief in its truth

Absolutely delighted that he has re-signed. It was the bit of business that I wanted us to do most this transfer window. Fingers crossed he can keep himself fit. If he does, I think he’ll be a big player for us this season!

always up for saving a weeks wages.

It could well be, will be interesting to see the movements in the last 3 days. There's a lot more players looking for moves and clubs than usual this year.

I'm well excited for the season now Roberts is confirmed. Neil Warnock is taking us to the playoffs.

Warnock never seems to be that excited about Roberts, I’d put money on him not starting at least the first couple of games.

He’s been training with us since early last week. I have no idea what the hold up in the announcement has been but he has been around for a bit now so should be good to go for Saturday.

 

I wonder if we’ll see us revert to 4-3-3 ?

Warnock already said he sees Roberts as 1 of the 3 man central midfield in a 3.5.2 so you wont see us change formation u don't think. Might look like a 3.4.1.2 with Roberts in the hole but think either way wing back system will remain.

    • Add to that we could probably have signed Bowen instead of Fletcher/Britt.
    • Got to be putting derby to the sword like teams were doing to us last season. Although at least our ex-pro manager last season had done some of his management badges. Sounds like Rooney just has his 1.5 GCSEs (PE and the first half of legal studies - I hear he's helping his wife out). I dont believe you can be an effective manager these days from on the pitch, especially when you're thick as a plank.    It's a shame we won't have fans in the Riverside, I imagine some of the chants aimed at Rooney would have been amusing. 
    • Bamford Harrison Braithwaite adama  This was a genuine option 2 years ago. 2 years!
    • A single goal by Huddersfield would have doubled my bankroll, but I'll take the 15,86 £ plus 😛 Bankroll is now 216,33 £  
    • Here we go as these Championship games are coming thick & fast & we can put our latest, unfortunate defeat behind us, move on & put another unbeaten run together, Neil Warnock wont let any of the player feel sorry for themselves after Saturdays defeat   And what better way to respond than to have a consecutive home game, they maybe struggling at the foot of the table but if we treat them with anything but respect they’ll turn us over   We’ve had some cracking games with Derby over the years at home, beating them 6-1, 5-1 even reaching our 1st ever FAC SF after winning at the baseball ground but its league points we’re after to achieve our goal of forcing our way in to the playoffs   Our 1st meeting between both teams on Teesside was back in 1903, our last season & penultimate game at Linthorpe road when the mighty Boro won 3-1, which included the final penalty taken on that ground   Since then we’ve met 147 times in total, Boro winning 64, drawing 34 & losing 50   Did you know we have scored 3 hattrick against Derby County George Camsell in 1929 John O’Rourke in 1967 Ravanelli in 1997   Represented  for both teams   Sir Bruce Rioch Colin Todd Ohhhhh Ravanelli Mikkel Beck Malcolm Christie who scored the only goal & very, very late goal at home to Brighton to start our carling cup run Chris Riggott David Nugent Ryan Shotton Ohhhhh Ravanelli Cyrus Christie Benito Carbone
