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


Recommended Posts

Fancy us to make a cheeky bid for Jed Wallace this summer, his contract's up next, recruitment team's targeted him before and he seems very much the type of winger Warnock likes.

By the way did you guys know that the summer we bought Saville we also tried to sign Je..... 😉

James Collins has signed for Cardiff kinda glad as we don't want a 30 year old coming who legs will go and be crippled in a year's time 

As glad as I am not to have signed him right now, I don't think we've quite avoided the the latter thing still happening. Plenty of time for Warnock to find another.

He would be great addition he's scored or assisted about 20 goals in the last 2 seasons. Is just 27 played in almost every game every season for like his entire career. Be great addition

Very surprised he's still there to be honest. Thought at least one of the teams on the way to promotion the last few seasons would have taken a punt.

Hopefully we are the club that's targeting promotion who takes a punt on him 😉

Lumley on a free is a solid signing if not unspectacular, but I am reserving judgement, just because of the shambles last season.

Would love him and Stojanovic to fight it out for the number 1 spot, but I don't hold out much hope of that happening. 

If Stojanovic does leave, I'd like us to target a more experienced goalkeeper (Ruddy at Wolves would be my choice) to come in and provide competition. Might be good for Lumley's game too, to have an experienced head to train/compete with.

Currently watching the Lincoln V Sunderland game, Wyke is playing up front and has been non existent. Not even an aerial threat....

 

He’d fit right in 🤣

My mate who is a QPR fan, says Lumley is still young for a keeper and thinks he will do well for us. 

Not the best at crosses and set pieces into the box but is good at shot stopping and 1v1's. 

I wish him luck and hope he will be good for us!

I hear you, but he can stop shots ... Bettinelli couldn't 😂

To be honest I'm not jumping for joy at the signing of Lumley but he's on a free and has championship experience. He's also young enough that if he's a success he might have a resale value.  

I also wouldn't be surprised if another keeper came in to challenge for number 1

While that Sunderland keeper Burge who we were linked with has just conceded through the ball rebounding of a pressing forward he struck kicking the ball upfield 🤣🤣🤣🤣

I don't think Bettinelli was good at shot stopping, 1 on 1s or kicking, so he's an upgrade even if he is poor at crosses.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
