What the hell is that green light. Just get it done. We currently have one senior fit striker and are playing two games a week. Unless he's trying to sign Sturridge on a 100k 4 year deal then give him some reinforcements.

The green light is the same one we gave to sign Assombalonga, Braithwaite, Fletcher, six months after signing Gestede and Bamford.  The green light should never just be given.  Who is the striker?  How good is he?  How much will he cost?  How much is he likely to play?  Are we going to end up with one up front and three strikers sat on the bench?  You've got to do things the right way or you end up paying for it somewhere down the line.

Neal B gets a lot of bashing on here. But he is also responsible to ensure the club keeps in compliance with FFP etc. I am sure he has made mistakes along the way but sometimes I  think when things don't happen it happened for the better e.g. a gready agent or player. 

It will be interesting to know what player(s) Warnock wants but question is where is money coming from especially considering no ticket revenues.

Why is anyone still a free agent when we have been through a long transfer window? Unless they have been injured with a long term problem, then the only logical reason is that they want more than any club is willing to pay. (Either in wages or length of contract etc.). That being the case, either they aren’t good enough in the eyes of most managers or they are thinking that by waiting some club will be desperate and pay them over the odds. On that basis, Hopefully Warnock won’t sign them if it’s the former reason and if the latter reason  we aren’t going to sign them without long negotiations and making them more realistic.

its not even as simple as saying let’s sign someone until the next transfer window.  Anyone decent still free will want long term security - a contract until Christmas isn’t much different to the short term contracts a lot of them refused to sign in April/May. Sign the wrong player now and we will be stuck with a long term liability.

Nailed on to be Niasse imo, I’d be happy with him or sakho tbf. That said it will end up being some random German or something.

As things stand come the end of the season we will have only one striker, thats akpom. Both fletcher and Britt will be out of contract unless we can get one or both to sign new deals.

I’d imagine we have options to extend for a year.

The only time I've really watched Niasse was when he was on loan with Hull in the Premier league and he looked pretty good. 

If Warnock could get the best out of him he'd be an excellent signing.

    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
    • If you dont mind a short drive get yourself booked into Art La Vey up towards Newcastle. That guy is head and shoulders above most in Boro. Mark at Nothingsacred in Stockton is class if you're wanting some dotwork done

    • Knowing the quality of the Daily Fail, they probably have Fulham as the Premiership club wanting him. It boils down to the lad's views on his future, his contract ends there ends in the summer, so everything in his hands, If he does not fancy move, then "agreement on terms could not be reached. If he wants away, not a lot we can do to stop him but there are not that many top rem teams looking for keepers, so it should be fairly easy to work out likely suspects, assuming not jut agent talk trying to get us to make decent offer in future
