It’s probably cos they haven’t got a photo of him for the announcement 😂

😂 ... but in truth if it was last minute and Bolasie was still in Everton then meby, just hopefully meby the delay could be him racing to us for a socially distanced picture 😬

If they believe they got everything submitted before 5pm and agreed terms how can it be taking this long for the green light 😞

We had a player signed and didn’t manage to announce him for nearly a fortnight so fingers crossed they aren’t pulling any of those moves.

On deadline day? I doubt even Boro would do that.

No, we had until 7pm to get the paperwork in. We could technically announce it tomorrow if we wanted to.

We can announce whenever we like as long as the deal is done. Could announce in the morning if they really want to tease us.

So it looks like we missed out on a defender (LB), what free transfers are available? Anything decent? 

If we’re after a centre back, hear some fella called Ryan shotton is available... Reckon he fancies it?

Given the fact that the deal for Roberts was announced on Thursday 1st October confirmed by Warnock on the 3rd October and announced by the club on Monday 12th October you'll be looking at the end of the month for Bolasie.

I wouldn’t be surprised too much if Shotton ended up back at Boro. Wouldn’t be disappointed either

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
