Looks like the next Ravel Morrison. Plenty of promise but can’t settle. I can’t see him becoming a succes in the championship.

Very unfair comparison that. Has Morrison played 20 goals in a season before? Whereas halilovic has  atonne of top flight experience at a younger age as well as a full international with Croatia. Hes been around but most of those have been loan moves with more success than anything ravel ever managed

So far he got a move to one of the worlds biggest clubs at a very young age, didn't make a breakthrough and has been around. At 24 years old Birmingham in the Championship is his 9th club. At that age Ravel had "only" been at 7 clubs. Since may 2016 he's had one sub appearance for Croatia in a friendly. The kid has talent, but it looks like he has gone massively backwards and can't live up to his hype, which is probably why he has never been able to hold down a place at a club and has now signed for a championship team on a free transfer. So yeah, I do see a lot of similarities. Maybe not in their personalities but professionaly.

    • 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.
