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

It is weird that last week we had deals agreed for a LB, Sporar, and Van Bergen, and we're sat here instead with a kid from non-league.

Think we suffer a lot from our reputation for playing boring football, Middlesbrough's location, and our disjointed CEO/chairman/manager/analyst royal rumble mess at deciding who to bring in.

Shush we're still close to the LB mate, it's been two weeks on but we're still close.

We’re just testing to see how many times we can try to change the deal before the selling clubs walks away

Disappointing but we don't actually know what's gone on behind the scenes, do we? 

We do seem to struggle with getting deals over the line - but as others have said, it makes it harder when we're fishing in the same small pond as hundreds of other clubs.

The lad from Belgium is a left winger and we definitely needs someone who plays on the right. Tav can’t do it because he is constantly moving into the centre of the pitch where Crooks is leaving us with no threat on the right whatsoever.

Wonder if we agree terms with the player a few times just so it looks like we're working on more deals.

We lost out on two strikers while chasing Muniz cause apparently we can only work on one deal at a time.

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. 

 

 

Or put more simply, he isn’t involved in the negotiations, which is the truth, the money side is Bausor on Gibsons behalf. I accept it was poorly phrased nonetheless. Pulis and Karanka made similar comments. How can Warnock field questions when it isn’t his remit? 
 

I think our naivety has been shown several times over holding out in hope we get our man while agents tout players elsewhere. He is going to a top division cclub, probably on more money, that WILL almost certainly be the pull over a 2nd tier English team, the truth hurts but there we are, but Warnock is a convenient Piñata I guess.

on Van Bergen, we shouldnt worry yet, one news outlet has come out and said something.

Even if we don't get him, at least we are looking at the right type of players in the positions of need.

No! We must all panic and gnash our teeth! Hitting out blindly at the unfairness of it all.

    • Pleased with the result! Some good performances all over but Payero, Sporar, Crooks and especially Bamba stood out for me, and it was good to see Lumley keep another clean sheet. I’m still not convinced that we’ll finish the season where this squad should but you can’t argue with a winning team so I won’t!  UTB

    • At least my quest to watch quest has been a bit more fruitful of late🙂
    • There are huge questions over how many players get injured under his coaching (we have an entire back five out atm), strong evidence of a bullying culture among his staff, and lucky-dip in-game tactics. I accept we're in far better form than you (and much higher up the table), but we've endured some absolutely atrocious performances this season. With the talent in our ranks, it's been perplexing to watch us hoofing the ball to the opposition keeper time and again. Warnock is leaving at some point this season, so we're basically marking time til then. Whenever he leaves, I don't think anyone on here will shed any tears, or feel as warmly towards him as you guys clearly do. If you want him back, we won't protest!
    • Speak for yourself DK I am certainly getting carried away after all this has not happened for a while and also perhaps drinking some CS has helped🤢
