The Summer/Autumn transfers thread 2020 (Akpom signs)

Recommended Posts

Cmon bring Chris Gunter in already Warnock, hes a good solid right back at this level on a free transfer, even if you kept him as a no 2 at right back and played Spence because he can also play Lb so would be good replacement for Friend as well.

He was the calmest player on the ball I've seen in years in a boro shirt and recycled possession well

He was probably calm because he couldn't be arsed.

Bar the opening 2-3 games he was so lazy.

We already have Dijksteel though. Spend the money elsewhere where it’s really needed.

George Friend has undergone a medical and agreed personal terms over a move to Birmingham, per @footyinsider247.

Always thought he would just be a squad player next year for us but I’m pretty gutted about this. It’s a big loss. You always knew he loved the Boro and would give his absolute best - the last 9 matches proved that and signing the extension. Who else currently do you think has the same affinity to the club? Just the young local lads I would guess.

Preston have supposedly been quoted £500k for Macauley Bonne from Charlton. I'd be all over that...

11 goals in a poor Charlton side is not to be scoffed at. Can play as a CF or a 10 - canny little player.

You boys sound like my late Father in the 70's He used to moan all game About Graeme Souness hovering around the defence and doing nowt...I pointed out he was spraying pinpoint passes to our forwards...His reply "that was luck"

Which was his second game, and home debut.

I messaged my brother after the Leeds match saying we'd made a great signing and how good he looked.

But he swiftly declined after that, he was a big part of that 6 game losing run.

Maybe he was better away from home, I only went to the Rotherham match last season, so I can't fully comment on those matches, but he was poor at home and coasted on past reputation and a promising introduction.

I thought Mikel was leagues ahead of what we had at the club but why we’re discussing this in the 2020 summer transfer thread I don’t know.

He’s apparently signing for Stoke anyway.

Probably because there are no transfers to discuss. Not even any rumours it seems.

I'm surprised there's been no more on Pears - either on signing extension or leaving. 

I'm think the efforts at the moment are on left back, centre back, defensive midfield and a striker. 

Our squad looks very thin with training starting on Monday. I bet the club thought they would have more in by now.

It's a crazy window.

Stoke doing very well to get players through the door this summer. 4 decent signings all done quickly. I don’t believe that we’re not trying our absolute best to get signings done but it’s starting to become a worry when our rivals are managing what we can’t.
