Fletcher is close to signing a new contract.

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 😳

The good thing is that Arthur (the true GOH) came from Whitby 🙂

Met Arthur and his crazy world and had a quick chat with him before he went on stage at the music festival in Boro in the early 2000s.

We are being linked with Connor Hourihane this morning. Not sure if we need him, and I think it’s just lazy journalism, but you never know. He’d be a massive improvement on Wing.

He’s on 30k a week at Villa. I doubt if we would be shopping at that level for a midfielder

Maybe Villa could see some sense in splitting the wages. Get him in the shop window.

Excellent set piece on him Hourihane but apparently he set for Swansea. 
 

If we get Bolasise and Diedhiou in and Britt out I would class that as a successful window on top of Watmore signing.

Villa want him gone on a permanent basis so I can’t see any split deal on wages

Only way I can see it is if it goes to the wire on deadline day. If there's no permenant deal, send him out on loan to the club willing to pay the highest portion of his wage. If we could get him at 50/50 it'd be decent, but I imagine there's be clubs panicking and willing to pay more than £15k of his wages.

    • Ha! Yes - Warnock doesn't strike me as a "Golden Thread" kind of guy. I guess the idea had to be abandoned once he was brought in. But other clubs have made similar philosophies work for them and I'd hope it is resurrected in the near future. Though maybe, as you say, our chairman and board simply aren't smart enough to see the benefits.  
    • Do you have a link? You probably posted it earlier but I'm very lazy 
    • I think the fact that Bevington left within months of that woodgate press conference and then woodgate was replaced with Warnock a couple of months after that shows that it was likely a difference in philosophy between the chairman and him. I could be wrong but knowing the personality of Gibson it just seems that that was how it probably went. 
    • Ha ha No I was the one who was shaking his head at the comment! Would be good to get your opinions on the station 👍👍. I was the one who was blasting Warnock 
    • Either that or they had the idea, but then were completely clueless as to how to implement it properly. Its all very well having an idea, but in order for it to work, you then have to draw up a detailed plan of what needs to happen and who is going to do which tasks. Stuff like costs and timelines also usually figure in there somewhere. We heard a lot about the idea, but very little about its execution. If they wanted Boro to be the English Ajax, maybe sending someone over to talk to the club and look at their methods might have helped? 🤷‍♂️ For the record, I really wish it had worked. I would have loved to see our academy finally fulfilling its intended purpose of turning out youngsters good enough to step into the first team and push the club onwards, instead of paying over the odds for big name players who probably don't really want to be there.
