The January Transfer Window 2021 AKA "Didn't we do well"

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.

Yeah at the end of the day, if he wants to keep his wages higher, he's not gonna get even close to what he's on here in England unless a Prem club is desperate and doesn't mind paying big wages for a lower transfer fee. I'm not at all shocked by him moving to Turkey if that is indeed where he's heading.

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 read the Mirror thing as pure speculation that we wanted to offload him now if we want to recoup some money before his contract runs out, and that there could be interest from the CHampionship and maybe Turkey.

That is some wallpaper...

It's probably £100 a roll as well. If you look really closely at the photo, you can see it's stained with the tears of the Turkish decorator who had to try and hang it without ripping it.

Not sure they’re going to sell the manager mate 

It would really confuse things that’s for sure.

We also might have known that Mejias is the type of guy to wear beige chinos...

Interesting. Dinamo said he was joining a British club. Guess that was just some misinformation!

Must have got lost in translation. They probably meant brute-ish. He'll be gone without pay before the season ends.

EFL interest is supposedly Derby but they have no money..

    • 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.
