Goodbye Ryan Shotton and thank you?

Recommended Posts

With all of the build up and excitement of yesterday gave little time to discuss the announcement of Ryan Shotton leaving the club and declaring he is moving onto a new opportunity.

With Covid 19 obviously no opportunity to wave goodbye to the fans though I am sure there must be twitter comments circulating from him.

Thanks for your time and effort playing for MFC Ryan and personally I wish you well moving on.

You are my grandson's favourite player and you were brilliant with him when he went to see Boro for the first time, but he is a growing lad and knows he will not see you again in a Boro shirt and his attitude was "oh well".

Personally I thought Shotton was a decent enough player and think he would have improved more under Warnock as there were signs with his last two performances.

However he wanted away, can't blame him so all in all best of luck to you

Thanks John OP edited but surely it would be what Geordie guys say? Could be both depending on how the o is pronounced!

Shame. Probably the best defender at the club.

I think that says more about the defenders we have at the club than it does him..

I thought Ryan Shotton was all about the long throws and I think it’s only recently watching him that I appreciate him for being a good defender. In the centre when not on the right he does really well. It’s a shame that he’s moving on, but another player who I don’t think we got the best out of whilst at the Boro.

I always quite liked Ryan Shotton as a player, but you often could see his limitations. I hope he finds a club and he isnt the worst player we have waved bye bye to.

A limited defender with at least one heart in mouth mistake a game in him, but what he did do he did very well. Can't fault him for dipping out a little early if he was as wrecked as Warnock was suggesting he was. 

That's a lot of money saved however, so best for both parties. Wish you all the best Ryan Shotton!

Always did a job for us, and never hid.

Wasn't amazing but he was a decent signing, now we look like staying up I can wish him well in his departure.

I can't blame him if he really was battered.

An honest assessment of a player who least was always committed when he played.

A limited player who always had a rick in him, but he tried his best and was easily our best defender after Ayala (though I realise that's damning with faint praise). Plus, the long throws were a useful weapon, and he rarely complained about being played out of his best position of CB.

I totally understand him wanting to move back to the Midlands - if your heart's not in a particular part of the world, you'll never feel completely at home there.

We really need Friend and Fry to rediscover past form now we've lost Ayala, Shotton and Moukoudi in the space of a month. Or - and here's a radical thought - we could sign new players from a division higher than League One?

Quite amusing that the rumour from MONTHS ago about him returning to the Midlands turned out to be true!

Shame to see him go. I thought he was one of our better CBs. But he has to do what he feels is right. If there are better opportunities out there, you can't blame him.

Wish him all the best...just hope he doesn't end up playing against us any time soon.

    • Ashley Fletcher. The fact he’s overcome so much pressure and “down moments” with us, yet he has still come out stronger on the other side is really admirable. I think that’s a very under rated quality for a footballer to have. I bloody love it seeing him play with confidence and his hard work paying off. Go on LAD!
    • Fletcher.  I honestly think he is our best striker now.  He had a difficult start here, with fans on his back because of his price tag, but has persevered and developed despite all the inadequacies in our coaching set up.  I really like how he and Tav link up.  I am looking forward to seeing how he develops under a manager who knows how to coach players and inspire confidence in them.  
    • To be honest I find it difficult to pick a favourite out as we are at a stage where we have no consistently outstanding players though many are very capable in flashes...I like Johnson going forwards but he terrifies me near our penalty area...Fletch is improving all the time and with a partner that would pass to him, he could improve a lot more...Tav is beginning to show his potential ...but agree with Blanco, Saville very underrated and reminds me a lot of Mustoe...so probably one of those three depending on the game...."deep rums".?..I'll have one of those 
    • Friend also for sentimental reasons. I have a soft spot for Dijksteel  for reasons unbeknown to even myself and want him to do well. I really liked Ayala as I felt much more confident in our defence when he was a part of it but the way he departed left a bad taste. My favourite player growing up, despite my username, was actually Gianluca Festa. I like players who play in a way which shows that they care about this club as much as we fans do. Festa did that. There been more since him, George being one of them. His legs have gone but I know he gives a sh*t about this club just as much as the rest of us do.
    • Friend for sentimental reasons... I have a soft spot for Coulson as well.. I love those merauding deep rums he can make.. From wing back.. He can unfotunately not do it as a winger, yet...
