That's it, whoever comes in will be 4th choice, and will be on wages that reflect that. A very limited amount of PL loan strikers, or a few older ones who won't play at their current clubs are realistically the only players that will fit that bill. Lee Gregory is pretty underwhelming, but looking logically he's the exact type of player that you'd expect us to go after, particularly as I assume we've exhausted plenty of other options.

I think it is important to note that the rumour came from teamtalk which means that lee Gregory is definitely not coming here

Yeah I find it mad that people think we would get a loan in who would play over your captain, last seasons top scorer and a player youve spent a couple of mill on. The addition will be a different type of player to what we have and allow us to play in a different way, its not going to be a world beater

It appears that Marcus Browne is staying at Boro according to Karl Robinson at Oxford so I don't think we need another Striker. We already have Chuba and Britt and Browne needs an opportunity at some point. His Bournemouth cameo was enough to suggest that he knows where the net is. He is far more flexible than a Gregory or heaven forbid another lead weight like Gestede so I'd argue that a fourth Striker is a totally unnecessary extravagance especially as Fletcher will be back at some point albeit probably late November.

We need strengthening in other areas like at CB and LB and I'd rather our direction and energy went into getting those two over the line.

If we get anymore players in, I am happy.. But I doubt it.. 

 

Hall, Bettinelli, Morsy, Akpom and Roberts.. 

It's actually quite ok, but we need more, cause winter is coming! 

Don't get your hopes up...I don't see us signing Jon Snow... 😉

Glad Browne is staying, just hope he gets more game time off the bench if he's not starting.

Mentioned it before with games coming up thick and fast most of the squad will get plenty of game time.

Like you am pleased he is stayingand hopefully he feels as if he does belong

Wonder if we might go back in for sanogo on a short term deal, unless he's signed for someone else like

I don't think so, mate. If he failed a medical and we weren't convinced he was gonna be ready for it right now, it feels a bit pointless doing a short term deal for us. We'd just be paying for his recovery.

Wednesday apparently after Jack Marriott on loan. Would anyone take him as a 4th choice forward?

I doubt he would be happy being 4th choice

    • 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
    • You say that mate but he has perfectly good winger in Roberts sitting on the bench while he plays a young right back there. If he is expecting the likes of Bolasie and Grosicki to do the hard graft that I'm assuming he doesn't play Roberts for then I think he'll be in for a shock.
