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


Recommended Posts

He wanted to stay until he got a better offer elsewhere is clearly a man just in it for the money

To be fair, if we weren't the first ones in the door to sign him up then it's our own fault he decided to leave. Let someone else sell him the dream instead of solving the problem ourselves. It's his future, he doesn't owe us anything.

Enjoyed his time here, was a bit disheartened how the club handled his situation and said they will offer him a contract only when he had six months to go on it. He wanted to stay but by that time other clubs showed an interest. Big respect for Warnock, says if he was a boro fan he'd be really excited for the future especially with out youth coming through. Says some of the stuff from the press written about him and other players at the club is bull. Squad and dressing room is fantastic. Made freinds for life up here and will come watch when he can. He said he is a bit disappointed as he would of liked to have stayed here.  Pretty much confirmed Watford move which came about after us taking to long to offer him a contract. Said people questioning his commitment are wrong he desperately wanted to play when he came back from his injury. 

 

Have to ask ourselves in this situation, if you have a player under contract who you want to keep, why would you tell him to wait until the point at which he could reasonably be expected to start sniffing out a new contract and, in the case of clubs outside our nation, actually be able to speak to the player legitimately.

Whether you wanted Fletcher to stay or move on, it doesn't take away how bloody amateur our club is at handling contract situations.

What he's said is we told him to wait until 6 months from the end of his deal. Why do you think we told him to do that?

he's no great loss. I'm glad to see him gone tbh.

I mean, until we replace him he is quite a big loss as there's no striker there to actually step in. But either way, if the club wanted to keep him but told him to wait that long for a contract, it's on us and not him that he left.

Yeah bolasie will be a boro player shortly. Not sure why everyone thought he would be unveiling our shirt. Next few days more will be revealed.

Didn't you say 1st July?

He was out injured for a long time before Chrsistmas, wasn’t he? I guess if they were worried about long term prognosis that could have influenced thinking. After all if he had got him contracted for another 3 or 4 years and he hadn’t recovered properly, then everyone would be criticising the club. You can understand them being cautious until  they had definite news of recovery - even if type of injury wasn’t usually a long term issue.

So got some snippets today, 

Fry talk is just speculation and unless a bid of over £20million comes then it won't be entertained, however there is a key player that we have said can move on if we get a respectable offer ( sorry unable to game the name of the player).

Mendes gomes interest has cooled along with quite a few championship clubs as Morecambe want close £2million. They wanted £1.5 in January but have since exercised their 1year option in his contract.

Bolasie deal way way way off. Talks have begun and he's open to coming back but his agent is touting him round everywhere as you would expect. Wanting a 2year contract with 30k wages which we simply can't afford.

Spence wants to leave again and it's likely he's going to be sold.

I would say our desirable key players were limited to Djiksteel, Fry, McNair, Tav and maybe Watmore. Out of that group I’d imagine McNair would be the one most likely to go

Money on McNair for me.  Other's thoughts?

Personally I was thinking McCnair as will because he would attract a biggish transfer fee, but it could be Saville even though we would take a massive loss on him as there was issues last season.

Spence leaving and Fry staying is extremely positive. 

I've even offered to drive Spence to wherever he wants to go to save him some scooter money.

    • 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
