Dan's Summer Transfer Thread. Aka: " Post Mortem Time""

Maybe just maybe the club and manager are putting the squeeze on to push his buttons to help sway him, who knows.

So the manager has been trying to push his buttons to help sway him into a move away... since 3(?) months before the end of last season?

If he was all about doing the smoke and mirrors crap for positivity, he wouldn't have slammed the basic assessment that he was even worthy of being called a striker before the season was over. The only person he was trying to make look good at that point was himself.

Tav played 4 games after the new year and Fry was out from April

Tav can't be relied upon until he can play a rub of games proving his fitness.

Fry has been back in this season and we look just as clueless defensively now as we did at the back end of last season.

Didn't we bring in 3 brand new wingers in the new year who could have taken Tav's place?

Maybe he should've signed a back up CB in that time, instead of leaving us with only 2 in the squad?

Weird how the manager is in charge of building his team and then bemoans the... lack of depth in his team.

Warnock has signed 20 senior players since he joined us 14 months ago. 

Let that sink in. And people are still talking about how injuries have been the problem.

We'll finish 12th this year and he'll still bring up Branthwaite kicking Fry in the head.

He's never been the same since! Would've gone up there and then, are you with me?

Vomit.

We also brought in Kebano, Bolasie and Mendez Laing in the January window, not many managers had that level of support in that window. 

I actually think Warnock did really well up until Xmas last year, I think he overachieved with the players that he had. After Xmas I felt like he underachieved with the squad we had and by April it seemed like he and the club had virtually given up.

Wonder how much Camarasa would cost us? 

His contracts up next summer and he's back from a long injury, would surely help our midfield and help Payero "acclimatise" as well

Well yes, why not, Warnock knew then he was not up to it. You could look at it as a positive for the player, being honest with him that he had no future at Boro and advising him to look for another club, is another way of spinning it. Forward planning is far better than last minute spur of the moment decision making, well it is in my eyes. In order to buy the club needed to free up wages and recover some funds. Why keep an asset you wont be using? You do what you can, football is a murky world as fans we do not see or hear about most of it, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t go on. Players and their agents are just as selfish as managers and clubs.

Wouldn't get too concerned about this season. It's clearly a transitional year, bed in some potential foreign superstars whilst establishing a secure Championship position.

The interesting bit will be who the next manager is.

We're due a local legend... 

Downing?

Forgot we were the only team in the league who had to deal with injuries. 

Your anti-Warnock bias has always been there (ever since you called him out for being pro-Brexit and that was a reason you gave for wanting him to be the manager).

By all means come after him when we’ve lost a load of games or whatever but not when we are still in August…and we’ve only lost one game and drawn away from home with Fulham. 

we lost Fry, Tav and Dijksteel last season which were huge losses coupled with the fact that he had players like Britt and Fletcher who didn’t give a ****. 
 

Is this what it’s going to be like after every game we don’t win this year?

    • Give over mate.  You know what I'm talking about, you've seen it as others have.  At least one of the bloody mods was doing it as well.  Is this how it's going to be now, mods acting dumb when things get called out? Can I ask a question, is it possible in your opinion, that some people will end up being reported more than others, but that the reports might not have any real merit to them?  Genuine question.
    • The results today were pretty decent again. If we beat Blackburn on Monday then we're only 4 points behind 2nd placed Bournemouth, who are on poor form and have looked awful for the past two months. QPR are in great form at the moment so seem to be in with a shot of 2nd spot.
    • As long as the people who were upset with the comments were similarly upset with anti English comments we've had from some of our Irish members then I actually don't have an issue with them complaining.  But I'd bet all the money I have that not one of those people complained when it was going in that direction.  That's the crux of it to me, the offensive behaviour only goes one way, and the mods have never stepped in previously to do a thing about it, whatever is now being claimed.  They decided to step in this time though, and I'm certain that it was because it was me.  As it was pointed out to me privately some time ago, lots of people are just waiting for me to slip up and cross the line, and unfortunately, some of those people are mods 🤷‍♂️
