Not that Derby are selling they senior players it seems but no one in they team excites me to point I would think they would make a significant difference to our weak areas.

As someone said Bielik is a good player but we ok in CB ans DM positions as far as starters are concerned. Out wide and up front they not got anyone I would really want.

For me Jason Knight is one of their better players. Only 19 as well, I think he has a big future in the game. He would be the one for me.

Good shout that. Seem to remember he looked bright against us.

I'm sure Knight will have prem teams interested in him. Especially if Derby are skint and need to sell quickly.

Guilbert would be a quality signing, he's good enough to play in the prem in my opinion.

Would anyone take Wayne Rooney? 

He would be a modern day Bobby Murdoch ! Warnock probably would take him !

Assombalonga could be going to Turkey. Not sure which club but it’s looking likely that’s his destination.

This window ?

Yep. We want to recoup something on him and get him off the wage bill.

I'd be shocked if he accepted going to Turkey.

Probably one of the few places he could still pick up £40k/week. On paper, at least. Turkish clubs don't have the best track record of actually paying their staff. Or dealing with racist fans.

Still though. Stay there 1.5-2 years, keep picking up a pretty penny, come back to the Champo for the twilight of his career. He'll be sorted by then.

Aye, today James Nursey from the Mirror said there’s interest in Assombalonga from Turkey. I still think he’ll end up at a domestic club like Bournemouth or Fulham.

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
