Looks likely that Smith from Rotherham will be next in.

I think it's nailed on or as nailed on as deals can be.  I'd be more surprised if he wasn't a Boro player next season than if he was, put it that way.

"No Boro approach for City recruitment chief Scott"

"Norwich City have had no contact from Middlesbrough regarding a potential sporting director role for head of recruitment Kieran Scott.

Sun Sport claimed over the weekend Scott’s ‘talent-spotting’ reputation has alerted Championship Boro, who are now ‘mulling over’ offering him a sporting director role.

That is news to City, who have yet to receive any contact from the Teessiders, who finished in mid-table under Neil Warnock last season 13 points out of the top six."

So Bolasie is average at best. Hoilett would be average. Your words. If anything, that rates Hoilett higher than Bolasie, implying Bolasie 'at best' is equal to Hoilett. Nonsense.

Bolasie played in 15 games, scored 3, assisted 4, whilst not match fit.  Over a season that'd be 9 goals and 12 assists. If that's average I'll take average. 

You're winding yourself into circles there, I said they were all average at best for us last season. Hoilett was below average last season and on anything but a free and mediocre wages I wouldn't bother but his record under Warnock is by all accounts decent.

Also come on, you can't just equate that because he got that in 15 he was automatically getting the same across the season especially with his injury record. He played averagely in a poor spell for us, I say this because Johnson in his first 18 games got 3 goals and 4 assists and yet he was replaced in January and subsequently not signed in the summer

Boro, along with Sheffield United, West Brom and Blackburn Rovers, are keen on Toulouse striker Rhys Healey.

Hate to say it but that name was mentioned by the poster a couple of days ago that was getting slated and blocked. (As far as I can remember).

He has already written off one set of £100m in debt.

Genuine question (not having a pop), when did he do that? 

As far as I'm aware he's not written the debt we owe him off, as it's all owed to the "parent/group" company.

It was a few years ago now he issued new shares and converted the debt.

    • Yeah I didn't think Gary went after Boro at all. Deluded sheep botherers heard one soundbite in isolation and decided that he did for some reason.  He was more asking how as a football community have we got into this situation... How has someone like Morris been allowed to do this. And how can we stop it happening again? 
    • I’m surprised that they still allowed tickets to be sold without announcing some form of checks for this match. It’s not like it wasn’t going to be popular....
    • I think Gary Neville's statement was really good. I thought he spoke with balance and ultimately aimed the questions at the right people, really. It's the view of football in this country and how we manage that situation. He said clubs should be like listed buildings and in one respect I agree as the culture and history of football is huge in this country. But also, you can't afford the government to look out for them when they're also ran by massive risk-taking owners. Which is why we have a Fit & Proper test and FFP and all those things, to try and protect the clubs from the people who run them. But whilst those things only provide an obstacle that these bell ends can overcome, you aren't really protecting anything. And whilst football clubs are like other businesses, that legitimises our claim because Derby have been run like a regular business, not like a club that cares about staying alive. And when the crap hits the fan, they want all the protection in the world, they want MPs to stand up for them, they want local media to challenge us because we're being ***, they only want to pay 25% of their deferred bloody tax. Whilst that's the situation, we should treat them like a regular business. If they want to be treat as part of the football family, they should have acted like a part of it to begin with.
    • So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?
    • tbf Gary didn't belittle the claim, he said if football is a family then the clubs would drop it, even if the claims are legitamite. He also then pointed the finger back at Mel and the administrators. It was clear he was generalising and didn't have the full facts, but he was basing his responce on what happened to Bury. However, that was a much milder screw up than Derby, so not a like for like comparison
