I'm happy with Grant Hall. Typical Warnock signing, knows the league, captain for QPR and strong in the air.

Finalise Gibbo now and that's our two first choice CBs sorted.

Finalise, sounds like there has been some movement?

Genuine question - not trying to have a dig, just genuinely curious.

Who was the last player we signed that you were genuinely happy about? Has there ever been one?

Can we all do this, and can you start a thread for it?  Can I say more than one person, can we just name players we expected to be good before they arrived who didn't let us down?

Feel free mate 🙂 Take the idea and run with it.

Still hoping for pace and width, bit of creativity.

Been waiting a long time for this though so what's another transfer window!

Well the gazette mention creative midfielder and width so 🤞. They also mention attack and another CB. Dont see any mention of a Left back though.

Gibbo was pretty much sorted before Woody got the boot... whether it will go through now is up to Warnock, I guess.

Always think its a good sign when you bring in another sides captain. Implies they have qualities off the pitch too. And we definitely need some more  leaders.

Was gibbo still training with us when warnock came?  Surely it must, experienced center back, leader, club at heart

Yeah, was gonna say, he's apparently turned down £12k at QPR and what, he's gonna accept that or less here? No chance.

Late to the party here, but didn’t that information state that he demanded 12k at qpr but they offered less. He may have seen that he can’t demand that and accepted 10k here.

Warnock told him to go back as h couldn’t use him for the run in anyway.

last time we had this it was Carayal and adomah in the 13/14 window and they both went on to get 20 goals between them in their first season before an injury ruined carayol.

Season loan with a view to permanent

Will likely still take weeks to get over the line what with the whole "in Croatia - 14 day self isolation upon return" thing he has to go through now.

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
