Seems crazy taking Bolasie when there are so many world class home grown international superstars desperately crawling over glass to play for Boro.

For me he fits the criteria:

better than what we have

will come here
 

 

Potentially, better than what we have and

May come here

Can’t believe that people on here are condemning a possible signing because of rumours that he dealt drugs.    One thing or squad is crying out for is someone that can distribute well 😳

Fletcher is close to signing a new contract.

Warnock confirms Bolasie should be involved v Norwich but won't start.

said there a chance one more might arrive by weekend but hopefully by Monday.

Confirms the two we lost out on this week weee both involved tonight for they respective teams.

Confirms he looking for a RB and another attacker. Does not want a CB now Hall back. Hopefully the RB is comfortable at CB too Aka like Kalas or Da Laet

Who do we reckon the two players were? Vydra played a few minutes tonight so him and one other?

Oliver Burke?

Burke been playing pretty consistently, won't be him. Vydra seems like the most likely now that Barnes/Wood and JRod are all fit. Not sure on the other one.

He said they were on the bench tonight so don’t think it was Vydra. Probably Keinan Davis and Kebano?

Did someone on here say we were trying to get Kelechi Iheanacho on loan last summer?

he was on the bench last night and isn’t getting much game time

I am afraid the wheels are coming off now for this season. Overstretched small squad - and now the birds are coming home to roost. And the answer to this is Bolasie?

To be honest, I thought we had improved as a football club. Now? Doubts are setting in

You're absolutely mad if you don't realise Bolasie is a very good player at championship level

I completely agree. Just a shame it's going to take a month for him to get up to speed imo as I don't think we will see the best out him until at least March which doesn't give him enough time to make a massive impact I fear.

From the Echo:  

“I think he can do an (Michael) Antonio,” he said. “I’ve always thought, since Crystal Palace, he could do the type of things that Antonio has done at West Ham. He’s quite capable of going up front.

“He doesn’t know what he’s doing some of the time, he hasn’t got a clue, and Antonio is the same. They’re quite effective because centre-halves don’t know either.”

Warnock has a lovely way with words.

👋 Neil, I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing on the football pitch either, can I play at the weekend. (P’s I’ll be a lot cheaper than Bolasie)

Mad if I don’t know he is a decent Championship player? Hardly worth biting to this outrageous comment.

Lets be clear, on all known knowledge of this guy, his 21 games in the Championship with Villa he hardly covered himself in glory. Dig a bit, the general consensus of his time was he played 2 decent games, scoring 2 goals. So moving on by 2 years you believe he is decent?

Comical. What I see is a hope and a prayer from posters believing this guy can do a job for us. Desperation personified.

    • Warnock shouldn't abuse referees. But I don't think boro fans should be calling our manager expletives online. It makes us all look silly. I imagine if we beat Sheffield United 3-0 then nobody will be calling him a p**** then. He won't be here much longer.
    • Our performances have been so bad this season that I now think Warnock leaving is the best thing all round. Our midfield hasn't been fit for purpose for most of this season as Warnock doesn't know how to get the best out of the players at his disposal. If the going gets tough then I doubt Warnock will dig his heels in to stick around for a mid-table at best kind of season, so I'm sure there's a good chance that he'll leave if there isn't an upturn in results soon. There's two more games against Sheffield United (home) and Hull City (away) before the next international break - which would be a good time to make a managerial change - so our results before then could decide whether Warnock leaves or not. Whilst Crooks has probably been our best performing central midfielder this season, I think him him being part of any three man midfield, especially with Warnock's direct tactics, massively reduces our fluidity in possession and just leads to our midfield three not functioning to anywhere near an acceptable standard. Last season we were far more fluid in possession without a unique "Warnock style" midfielder like Crooks. Something has dramatically changed in midfield from last season as we've got so much worse. I don't think the goals he has provided has been worth the negatives. Any three from Howson, Morsy, Saville and Tavernier last season performed to a far higher and consistent standard than any three this season so far. I can see the positives that Crooks adds to the team in a midfield role such as him pushing forward from midfield to be a targetman for flick-ons from Lumley's long kicks, and a very good aerial presence in both boxes in open play and set-pieces. However, aside from them, I think he really limits us as a team as the ball doesn't flow well with him in there. With three central midfielders we should be far more patient on the ball and allow our shape to open up far more with fullbacks overlapping, wide midfielder having a more infield position and midfielders playing through the thirds with quality. Instead everything in midfield is disjointed, messy and scrappy for us - with minimal quality as a unit. We've played our best football this season in the home game against Blackburn with Howson, Morsy and Tavernier in a midfield three - with Crooks playing as a targetman in strike. Kieran Scott must be tearing his hair out after watching how smoothly Norwich's midfield in their two promotion seasons move the ball around and progress it into the forward areas. Siliki and Payero both still adapting to the Championship won't help matters either. Whatever the cause is, the problem of the midfield is abundantly clear so it needs to be resolved as soon as possible.
    • No, I'm saying that there's a great deal of hypocrisy to try and stand up for the right of a person not to receive abuse when the person you're talking about is Neil Warnock. The man hands out dog's abuse every game. It's not whether he can take it or whether he deserves it, it's that if he can't then be shouldn't be throwing stones himself.
    • Are you saying warnock deserves to be called obscenities from fans of MFC? Because I don't think he does. 
    • Is this what you say to Warnock about the referee every week? Bloody hell.
