I can't see how there would be anything in this but Middlesbrough rumour on here linking us to Karlan Grant the Huddesfield striker along with Dillon Phillips the Charlton goalkeeper.

Grant would cost a fortune, not a chance that's true

I wonder if he's got them tied to the beds and locked the door.

It just shows how far we have fallen when we are getting exited about signing players like Sanogo and Stewart. A few years ago we wouldn't even have bothered discussing them hardly as they would just have been back up squad players, now it's the best we can sign if we can manage to get them to sign that is. I am not very exited about either of them, but if we can sign Gibson or Roberts i would be a little bit excited.

No one was excited when we signed George Friend from relegated Donny or Grant Leadbitter on a free from boring Ipswich but they turned out pretty well. Players like Stewart can thrive in the right set up.

Good point which raises a question can Boro be the right set up for possible incoming players?

Honest opinion please.

I believe so, forget about the outer edges of the club, but certainly coaching could very well produce a more consistent Boro this term

Yes I agree Alan, Warnock knows what he’s doing. I think it’s interesting that he changed the GK coach and now talk of a new GK coming in and Pears leaving has disappeared. Did he feel that the coaching is all that was wrong with the keepers?

I think the coaching staff is about as good as we could hope for with players that ultimately haven't produced that much during their careers so far. This season, anyway. God knows what happens when Warnock leaves. We've no idea what kind of manager Gibson will try and get, how soon he will be looking, whether they'll be rookies, experienced or in between.

Still, with someone like Sanogo, it's worth saying he's been around the block a bit now and has still never consistently produced anything. Warnock is a good manager but he's not a miracle worker. Here's hoping Sanogo actually has something to him that improves our squad and isn't just being signed on his youth team potential from a decade ago.

I did not know that are we talking about Leo?

No he replaced Danny Coyne with Ian Bennett a couple of weeks back. There might be nothing in it but it’s just something I noticed

As they say let's judge this like game by game or season by season!

Talking about Leo does anyone think that he just might join up with the Brummy boys?

Nah, Karanka has his backroom team sorted and I think his strongest connection is still with the fans here.
