Good news. If we get him and Yannick in and with the impending return of fletcher that should strengthen us.

Warnock said he ideally wants 2 wingers but unsure if he including Watmore as 1 of them 2...

Football Insider have said Yannick will sign  for us in Jan. deal agreed and not a loan.

 

if that’s the case I would guess at a six month contract with options

Nothing in the Football Insiders article about it not being a loan?

You got a link for this please? I just read article other day about we will be interested in Jan. Not seen an article which is more definitive in terms of him coming here and length of contact?

Funny to see that both Kevin Stewart and Sanogo are still without clubs. Didn't Stewart *** us around shopping for better offers? Didn't exactly pay off for him.

Sounds like Roberts is gonna head back to City.

Exciting footballer not wanted at Boro. There is a surprise.

Shame, but I imagine the wages we are paying him will cover the wages of Bolasie coming in (in January) and the new deal for Watmore. 
Both of which will be ahead of Roberts in the NW pecking order.

I wonder how much we have been contributing to Roberts' salary.

As a complete guess, I reckon we'd be paying between 30-50% towards it. Another complete guess but I reckon he's on £30k plus a week at City.

Not sure how accurate this is but it’s the players at Boro wages

It's such an odd thing. I'd guess we'll only get a fraction of what Warnock thinks about it all if and when he does leave, similarly to his comments about what he did when he came on recently. If it's something about his application in training then really for the good of Roberts career, he may just choose to keep it mostly private. If it's to do with how he fits into Warnock's team well, two things:

1) He fit into the team just fine when he played for us under Warnock last season
2) Why bring him back at all if he didn't fancy him as a player?

The question really is what's changed since last season? We certainly haven't brought anyone else in who's better than him at what he does and if he doesn't think he's better than what we already had by the time we finally brought him back, why sign him at all? Was Roberts not exactly what he was after, just next down the list?

    • Yeah we haven't helped ourselves on the penalty count.
    • Probably 😂
    • I think it's terrible man management and smacks of someone who is more concerned about looking after himself.  The rotation earlier in the season was also weird. I personally wouldn't have been playing Assombalonga once the transfer window had closed certainly, for the reason I've already stated that Akpom needs to be playing.  I mean, we've got what we've got out of Assombalonga now.  People will have differing opinions on it but to me we got exactly what we bought - a striker who will get about 15 a season.  We didn't get what we paid for however, which was something more than 15 goals a season.  Continuing to play him serves no purpose, and think about it from Akpom's point of view - he's behind players who will probably be leaving in the summer.  Add that to what Warnock has said and it's hardly going to give him a confidence boost. The fact that the recruitment team are recommending players that aren't suited to the manager's clearly well established type of play isn't pretty *** ridiculous mind.  Another reason why I want Warnock gone though, not because I blame him for that as I absolutely don't, but because I don't particularly want him putting it right.
