Offer has been accepted bauser has had his critics but he has pulled masterstrokes on both of these.  Now over to you Leo!  Payero small issues look sorted should be an announcement tomorrow or f

Not been keeping up but Sporar should be sorted by Tuesday 

Gibson doing a Gibson. Having another punt, pushing for Bolasie, this Argentinian and money available for a couple more. (Not a lot though) Spence going for £5m

Only thought if he goes to forest is we must be having their eyes out with a huge loan fee and some kind of purchase obligation or performance based clauses because we know they're desperate. Especially with them being a division rival.

Guess the only thing which would make sense is that the club still rate him and think he will get more game time when Warnock leaves

This could be the reasoning behind a loan alright ūüĎć

If we tried to sign Ivan Alejo today could that mean we'll be in the market for a free agent winger as well as a left back?

Not sure who's available beyond NML or Josh Sims.

No offence to Phil but is he literally a journalist who just retweets other sources?

I unfollowed him when I realised that and he started posting a lot about Newcastle, after asking people what the best sources for Newcastle transfers were.

If Spence goes it leaves us with only 7 defenders including Samba 

I know we've signed some old faces as defensive reinforcements this summer, but Christopher Samba would take the biscuit! He's an actual relic.

He also supports Liverpool because Boro are a small club.

    • Kieran Maguire did a breakdown of each championship clubs 20/21 accounts when they were published earlier this year. Bournemouth‚Äôs average weekly wage was ¬£27,500, ours was ¬£12,500. They‚Äôve¬†managed to retain the vast majority of their squad since relegation with Danjuma being the only major outgoing. My argument with Mitrovic was only to say that¬†just¬†because a player is surplus to requirements doesn‚Äôt mean they are not good enough. I‚Äôm also shocked that you think Howson - our player of the season - should be easy to replace. Obviously you are entitled to your opinion, but I personally wouldn‚Äôt be shelling out for another midfielder when I feel there are much more important positions to fill. Of course a lot depends on the budget we are working with, but I think we need two¬†strikers, a left wing back (maybe even two), a right wing back, a centre back, and a goalkeeper. I just can‚Äôt see us filling each of these positions and getting another midfielder in. I don‚Äôt even think in the grand scheme of things that our midfield was that much of an issue last season, it was an inability to score and leaking too many at the back that ultimately cost us.
    • I don't think they do have an embarrassment of riches, which I suppose is another point I'm making.¬† Bournemouth weren't that good this season, they rarely impressed me when I saw them, and didn't impress me much at all against us. Mitrovic has had a fantastic season at this level, but he still might not be good enough for Newcastle, I'm not really sure what argument you're making there?¬† He scored 3 goals for Fulham in the Premier League last season.¬† Either side of that he's scored 26 and 40 in the Championship.¬† All that proves is that he's more than good enough for this level, which is lower than where Newcastle aimed to be when they sold him. I am realistic about incomings, I'm also realistic about our current players.¬† Howson was the worst of the three midfielders last season, and needs to be replaced in the side.¬† It shouldn't¬†cost much at all to bring in a better player than him, he's not even our best midfielder let alone one of the top midfielders in the Championship, so replacing him really shouldn't be difficult.¬† If the club can't replace a bloke that wasn't that good to begin with when we signed him then what chance have they got of improving the rest of the team adequately enough to win promotion?¬† A GK, a midfielder, two strikers, left sided player.¬† Those are our priorities, that's where we need to upgrade in my opinion.
    • Poor article that. 10 mill for Spence? Coulson a Teessider? Come on Craig Johns ffs¬†
    • https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/middlesbrough-loan-exit-round-up-24049100 ¬† This article mentions we are releasing Ste Walker this summer. His release is no surprise but dont think club have confirmed his release. Article again mentions figure of above ¬£10m for Spence. Echo saying ¬£20m. Hopefully somewhere in between.
    • Bournemouth didn't spend much last year, probably about the same as we did I think? For some reason they clearly rated other people ahead of the lad.¬† Nothing wrong with that of course, and it doesn't need to be a reflection of his ability.¬† My issue would be if he¬†was our sole midfield signing, then we'd be putting a lot of faith in someone who was taken out of the Bournemouth side for whatever reason.¬† At some point we need to be bringing in players who will replace those we already have otherwise we're just not improving.
