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

The report says the player prefers to join the French side. Therfore us as a club haven't provided a good enough proposal to the player that makes him favour us. Therfore it demonstrates a lack of ability to sell Middlesbrough Football Club to players. 

Hardly.  Maybe they just have a better financial offer that we can't/won't match.  Maybe he just fancies Ligue 1 over the Championship. Maybe he just really loves croissants.

Nothing adds up to Bausor failing to sell the club to him or, in particular, Muniz.

So let me get this right. 

No one had heard of kid before and was complaining. Then comes along a top Tier team and complaining. Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

A lot of people blame boro hear. But honestly if I was that player and a top tier came in I would be doing same.

I doubt Van Bergen has even heard Warnocks comment. People just using it as a stick because they desperately want something to beat Warnock with. Van Bergen is probably happier playing In a higher league for more money, just a thought, no that can’t be it, that wouldn’t sway him surely 🤔

We are a second tier team trying to shop in the bargain basement of a pool with potential to play at the top level. It shows ambition, but agents do seem to be using us to tout their player around to the highest bidder. We naively allow time to drag hoping we can get our man while behind our backs the agents are at work. Still it is far easier for some fans to blame a 72yr old experienced manager than face the truth i guess.

Why are people assuming that a small club in France’s top tier can offer more than us? Have you seen the financial state the french clubs are in at the minute with the TV deal situation?

Sorry but Warnock's comments are indefensible. Lets say he had read Warnock's comment, which its totally plausible that he did considering it was all over twitter, are you telling me he'd actually want to come here? 

When Warnock got his 'top priority' signing, we ended up with Chuba Akpom. Now the club are looking at signings perhaps beyond Warnock's reign, which won't last longer than a year, he's going on record saying that its nothing to do with him, which you can subsequently infer from that he isn't at all arsed about him coming here.

I hate to bring it up again but Hugill was dealt a very bad hand in his year here and he’s very underrated as a result. He was just as isolated if not more than Negredo was under Pulis. As we always say Ronaldo would struggle to score goals in some of our past teams. 

Look, he scored 6 goals in that season, a couple of them were penalties.  Assombalonga was just as isolated and scored 14 goals in the same season!  Hugill has never scored more than 13 goals for anyone in his career.  He's never been a regular for any team at this level that finished in the top 6.  No bugger seems to want him for more than one season, and it can't be because he's too good, can it?  He's an ok to decent striker at this level, West Ham overpaid for him, and now he's bouncing around from club to club trying to keep his career on track otherwise he will hardly be playing. 

He couldn't get in our side regularly while he was here, he couldn't get in Norwich's side regularly last season, he was a regular for QPR when they finished 13th, he was a regular for Preston when they finished 11th, he actually left Preston half way through the season when they finished 7th, and they were 11th when he left!  I'm not saying they got better because he left but they clearly didn't get worse.  If he ends up being a regular for West Brom then it will give him the chance to do two things he hasn't yet managed in his career - score a good amount of goals, and help a team get promoted as a regular, which seem to me like two things we'd be wanting in a striker, if it's at all possible, especially for the kind of money he is on.

Surly we are a better proposition than a small club in France who play in a farmers league it's hardly Monaco or PSG in for him. We are meant to be getting promoted this year to the best league in the world if we make the signings like MVB yet for some reason we can't make players excited about this project!

We’ve signed 9 players this window. One of the most in the championship. There’s a week to go ffs 😂

Sounds good but haven’t six of those been free transfers which are presumably straightforward. A better measurement would be I guess how many have we tried to actually buy from another club and have succeeded, Payero, Ikpeazu and Crooks minus Munoz and Van thingy

It would have been an exciting signing like.

He's absolutely rapid, skilful, creative and good at carrying the ball.

Exactly what we need, players who can take people on.

Onto the next one. 

This could well be the 10th transfer window in a row where we fail to address the problems with our squad.

Lumley, Daniels, Bamba, Peltier, Ameobi, Olusanya

Hardly difficult deals. I can't imagine lots of clubs we're interested in the majority of them

I'm not convinced that a middle tier team in Ligue 1 will pay any more than we will, honestly. Aren't a lot of teams in France struggling for money?

Also, I'd be fairly confident putting money that someone important in the Van Bergen camp heard NW's comments, whether Mitchell himself or his agents.

    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play. 
    • Have a great time, that man. Hope the boys make you proud ,Enjoy the Legends Lounge & the party. .........  Travelling is a complete pain these days. Im off to Tenerife next week via Stansted so i need locator forms going into Spain, PCRS test & locator forms  coming back to the UK & again a locator form coming back to Ireland. All worth it though........... I love the way people on Forums ask "Does anyone know a bar in "wherever" where i can watch the match. In other words- I am in "wherever" & i want everyone to know it,  BTW Does anyone know a Bar in Costa Adeje where i can watch Sky Sports?!
