We've had Wood in and around the first team for the last year. Our best player this season is from the academy and made his full debut 4 games ago. We have had an 18 year old academy product come on from the bench yesterday.  We had loads of academy prospects play in preseason: Malley, Hackney, M Dijksteel, Sivi, Robinson, James

What the *** are you on about

Pre-season...

Okay smart *** - tell me exactly how many minutes all those players combined have played in competitive league or cup matches for us?

Bet its not many...

Since you clearly didn't understand the question: making the step up means establishing yourself as a regular first team player. Or at least making the bench and making regular sub appearances...in competitive matches.

Jones isn’t really from the academy.

He was signed to the u18/ u23 squad and progressed from there. Still counts as a product of the youth system.

Sorry but if you think we should be pumping out a couple of Downings and Gibsons every year, you're deluded. In the last couple of years Coulson, Wood and Spence have all made the step up to the first team in competitive league or cup matches

In what way? He was in the academy for two years as an under 23. Just because we got him from somewhere else doesn't mean he's not from the academy

This transfer thread has gone way off beam. Is all the verbal jousting and aggression necessary? This board was a clear cut above other Boro boards. Sadly it is descending into no better if the current posts are now representative.

This is no different to any other transfer thread that has ever been on here. 😄

He signed when he was 20 years old, and has been out on loan twice. He’s not exactly a ‘typical’ academy product like the other players you mentioned, where they’ve literally been nurtured through the age groups. That’s all I’m saying.

My day... Wake up 10 new pages on oneboro, brilliant!! Continues to read 10 pages of bickering about Neil warnock, not much transfer news. 

Few hours later checks oneboro, 10 new pages, still thinks brilliant. More bickering. 

This goes on all day! It's the hope that kills you! Haha

I've followed this forum for a few years now without really posting, however this year seems to be really low, despite the positive transfers and the Scott appointment. Lets try some positivity boys, it honestly does not hurt. We all want the same outcome. UTFB!!

I have largely seen this board as a place where debate could take place - one of its major strengths.

He can't be as dedicated as Payero, he's still not following Middlesbrough on social media, Payero was following Boro nearly a month before he finally arrived.

Booooooooo.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
