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

Hasn’t it been “imminent” for the last two months? Everyone keeps making the right noises, but if I were a Derby fan I’d be pretty worried until it’s signed and the new owners have actually shown up and pumped money in.

If you are negotiating to buy anything and you identify that the seller is very eager to sell and then becomes even more eager as the weeks go by you start to become either suspicious or you see an opportunity for a knock down price which gets cheaper the longer you leave it. Or maybe the Sheikh is a penniless fantasist with delusions above his pay grade. Business is business and I can hear his elders telling him to make them sweat and squeeze their cohones just a little more and when you see the tears then you know you have them where you want them.

If Derby can structure something for Britt (which lets face it would be extremely doubtful at the minute) they may want to factor in a swap of some sort in lieu of cash. Could be a good opportunity for us to pick them over.

Britt is still remembered in those parts for saving Forest a few years back with I think from memory was two goals on the final day of the season. If he can keep them up they will regard that as very good business. Maybe they can get him sponsored as a Coaching come Player addition the same as when they "manoeuvred/massaged" the rules with Rooney?

Call me old fashioned, but beige doesn't seem like the colour of the God of Hellfire... 🤷🏻‍♂️

Imagine Dimebag Darrell or Kerry King wearing beige chinos. Hellfire ≠ Beige Chinos.

Does Borodane look like either of these demons? Because otherwise, I'm just not sold. 🤘🏻

Now Slayer are sadly no more, maybe we could sign Kerry King as a defender. He might not be very mobile at his age, but it'd be a brave opposition striker who tried to get past him...

    • 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.
