So you just pull out?

Yes. Can we really afford to tie up 5.8 million in a player that may/may not get a work permit in 12 months time? Unless Banfield and the player is willing to default ane payments until he gets a work permit. When we at least still need 2 strikers, 1-2 wingers and a midfielder at least.

2 months ago Warnock: “we’re not signing anyone that we haven’t seen live”

now: we’re signing some lads that Leo has recommended that no one has ever  heard of before. Btw Leo is the guy Warnock has trusted with literally nothing but prepare subs

We have no idea if we have someone we trust over there who has watched them live. Just because NW hasn't watched them himself doesn't mean we haven't been watching them.

We do know that Jepson went “abroad” to watch games in April. Not sure there was any confirmation as to where that was. Certainly the assumption was in Europe, but that’s not necessarily the case.

Do we remember when he went? Do we have any detectives that can work out if Payero happened to be playing games in that time period? 🧐

NW can spot whether a footballer is any good off 30 seconds on YouTube.

I remember he missed the Rotherham game in March/April-ish time as he was quarantine after a trip.

my mind seems to think he went on one earlier.

edit:

quick search on Google and it was December warnock mentioned the foreign gem and we planned to watch him in January

I don't know if it's just me, but is his profile picture a face photoshopped onto someone elses body?

    • 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.
    • Bournemouth have an embarrassment of riches. Just because they deem a player to be not good enough for them, it doesn’t mean that we should turn our noses up at them. Mitrovic was deemed not good enough for Newcastle who were struggling at the bottom of the premier league at the time, he went to Fulham and has set a frankly ridiculous scoring record which could stand for decades. We need to be realistic about incomings. I think we all accept that we need to bring in several players, and given how well Jonny played last season is it worth the amount it would cost to bring in a better player? We can’t afford to upgrade every single player in the squad so we need to prioritise imo.
