And Toulouse have just actually been relegated relying on Sanogo. Really great effect he had on that side.

You mean Toulouse the top flight side in France, yeah? 

You do realise we were just in a relegation battle in the second division in England

Britt was great in the run in. Fletch was standing out even in Woodgate's side earlier this season. With the right manager, no reason we can't get the best out of them. The problem we have right now is not with our strikers.

*Boro don’t sign anyone*

“why can’t we just sign someone for the love of god”

*Boro close to signing Yaya Sanogo*

”What a stupid move why are we signing him?”

Yes the top flight French side, have you watched any of the french league outside the top 4? It's *** horrendous.

Sanogo contributed to a huge 22 total goals scored by Toulouse last year, lowest in the division by a long way. For context, Britt and Fletch got the same amount between them last season as the entire Toulouse side.

We are long overdue an unflattering signing that surprises and pays off so I'm always hopeful the next guy (maybe Sanogo) can be that guy. I wonder what sort of reaction Uwe Fuchs would have got when we signed him.

Do people really think we'd have scored more the past 2 seasons with different strikers even though we have/had the most uninspiring attacking midfield and winger options in the entire league?

I hope that's not true, can't see anything good out of a player reading a fans forum. We all have our own opinions but there's absolute nonsense spouted on Internet forums as well. In reality we couldn't lace the boots of the worst Boro players either if we ever got the chance 😂

Wouldnt be suprised if at some point they were sat around and someone said 'Ive heard there is a OneBoro forum member who lurks in this changing room' and all eyes swung to Kike Sola

Agreed, our strikers are definitely not the problem.

This is the key question. We can buy all the strikers we like, and talk about how our strikers don't help the rest of the team all we like, how about the rest of the team helping the strikers? How about actually creating chances?

I for one welcome the Yaya Sanogo redemption arc happening at Middlesbrough FC.

Do you think this is because of, Sanogo or is it maybe because they had back to back managers who couldn't organise anything close to a competent attack?

As the number 3 striker what's not to like, strong, pacy, different to fletch and Assombalonga, much like the blackpool lad most wanted.

Benrahma was arguably the best player in the chamionship last season and he came for Ligue 2, Matheus Pereira came in with a poor Bundesliga record and once again was one of the best players in the league, Diédhiou from Bristol came for Ligue 2, Niclas Eliasson came from a swedish league.

None of these players had stand out stats and have done very well in the championship, this ideal that they must have a glowing record to sign for a second division club is nonsense
