He played those two and Coventry and maybe more ... Then he returned to defense, cause Fry was injured

I just can't see him back in midfield as Warnock seemed pretty unsure on his as a midfielder, I'd be happy either way

Chuba Akpom put up a picture on Instagram 2 hours ago, where he was in London .. Don't know if this means something.

Could be flying somewhere, could just be going to the final.

Chuba family all still live in London so it could be simply a weekend at home for him during the weekend of the final.

I have nothing against Chuba but it was a mistake to think he fit our style, so if we can recoup and he gets a good move then all the better

Exactly, he’s done nothing wrong for the fans to dislike him (unlike recent others) but it just hasn’t worked out and we appear to have overpaid, which again isn’t his fault.

Does this mean the rumored return from retirement ex-Forest player Bryan Roy will never allow us to have a front three of

Roy - Chuba - Brown ?

Mind you we'd definitely have the most "offensive" forward line in the league! 😁

 seen this in the evening Gibson.  Incase anyone was missing hearing anything about Martin payero. https://c.newsnow.co.uk/A/1087204384?-11183:811

"But what kind of midfielder would Boro be getting in Payero?

It's interesting to note the tactics used by manager Javier Sanguinetti. Setting out in a 4-1-4-1 formation, Payero would often play as the right-sided central midfielder in that midfield three."

Does that actually make sense?

Yes it makes sense. 

They played one DM with two CMs in front of him and Payero was the right sided one of those two.

@PsychFur. I get the confusion. The 4.1.4.1 makes it sound like there were 4 midfielders with one sitting but they then go add Payero was on right hand side of a midfield 3.

Yet the formation makes no reference to 3 midfielders. It makes reference to 4 midfielders.

All that said @Brunners has nailed the explanation. If he comes he will probs play in a midfield 3 with Howson and Morsy. NW seems keen to play Howson and Morsy together and if he does I do wish Morsy is the sitter and not Howson.

Are many folk from here going to the Q&A evening with NW? If so and he takes questions from the floor can someone please ask him why he playe Howson as the sitter and Morsy as the advanced one given both they careers to date Morsy has been the no.6 and Howson a no.8.

Even now despite his age I would back Howson to score more than Morsy as I feel Howson is more composed in front of goal than Morsy.
