Some of these guys have to be being deliberately dense, it's not that hard to understand. I'm glad there's at least one person in here that understands where I'm coming from.

Brunners

I fully aggree that it's a fine thing to post the full twitter link .. I don't think many posters can disagree for real on that part. 

I just think, that some people might see your way of telling people what to do lacks a little respect, as it's grown ups you talk to... Not naughty scool boys. Just a tip.  It is possible to be polite and/or witty, while telling people how to do specific things, the way you would like it.

I'm really not wrong. You are comparing someone posting information that they get personally, and have a long history of posting it on here that you can look up if you're interested to see how often they're right, to someone just copying random unsourced tweets and relaying them here without any credit. 

Imagine getting this upset over somebody else being asked to POST A LINK 😂

Oh I'm having the time of my life here mate.

I'm not the one getting upset, am I Brunners?

So 12 incomings I think? 

Most of them were needed and I'm always excited about seeing the new players but I hope it doesn't take too long to settle them all in. 

Warnock has got a challenge on his hands.

Gazette just wrote on the live transfer updates page that incomings look like they're done

If that’s the case, it’s a bit odd we haven’t got a left back in. 

Anyone got a link to all the free agent LB’s?

Incomings 'finished' at Boro

As things stand, our understanding now is that Boro's summer signings will finish with that capture of James Lea Siliki.

Our information right now is that there won't be anymore incomings before tonight's 11pm deadline.

Never say never, of course. The club won't close up shop and go home. If an unexpected deal presented itself they'd move, but with less than two hours to go until the deadline, that's highly unlikely.

We are still also awaiting confirmation of Sam Morsy's exit for Ipswich. That one is expected to be completed before 11pm and that should complete Boro's summer transfer window.

Isn't many you'd sign only really Bryan.

Sky built up the Deadline day really well but have ruined it with the likes of Jim White, Kaveh and Dharmesh thinking they’re the dogs ***.

It has been poor and overhyped for at least the last 10 years, since Robinho and Berbatov made last minute moves.

For me we definitely need another left-back.

and one more option for mid/att

But other than that the squad is looking good.

I'd have liked McGrath and then a LB on a free if not Bidwell.

Two short for me but that's it.

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
