Maybe it's not true?  None of the ITK types on here managed to mention it, despite all posting over the last few days.  Mind, they also didn't get Paterson either.  They have been pretty spot on telling us things that aren't happening though 🤺

Maybe it’s not true. I love the ITK info like everyone does but my personal opinion is that info has been kept very quiet this summer, don’t think anyone mentioned uche and peltier deals.

To be honest if he doesn't want to come we don't need him as Warnock wants players who see boro as a massive opportunity to elevate their career. This guy has accepted an easy life staying in Luton doesn't have the ambition to try be a premiership footballer that's his choice we can't force it.

Karanka did accept it, on multiple occasions.  Does someone really need to provide you with a paper trail to prove that Karanka didn't want Downing or didn't want Rhodes?  Just out of interest, how do you think they would they go about just not accepting it?  What would they do exactly?

Where did he accept it? And yeah to be honest, I'd just like one viable quote because honestly I think it would have been pretty well publicised if Karanka came out and said Gibson made signings without his say.

It's mad how it's just accepted as fact within this little echo chamber of negativity that is this forum, properly strange

That to me suggests it wasn't Karanka pushing for Rhodes, especially as we loaned him out less than a year later after paying 10 million

Seem to remember Karanka raving over McCormack and Grabban not Rhodes

There have been viable quotes but you are disregarding them. If you are looking for a quote where a manager says I didn't want him then you'll probably looking for a while as managers aren't likely to come out and say it as bluntly as that.  What they will do is make it clear that the transfer was someone else's idea.  But I'm sure if you look you'll find quotes that suggest that Karanka was less than impressed when we signed Gestede and Bamford in that transfer window.  I think I've put a few of them up here in the past.  It's mad how some people are completely unable or unwilling to read between the lines when it suits them.

Copied and pasted this from the article:

Karanka, who had a summer bid for Rhodes turned down, said: “When we tried in August and at the end we couldn’t bring him here, we started to work with the new players.

“At the beginning of January he wasn’t on the list as I didn’t want to spend that amount of money when I needed different positions – a midfielder, a defender, and when Diego (Fabbrini) left I needed a number 10. For that reason he wasn’t on the list but at the end, when every player I had asked for arrived, we tried again and we were right.

“I don’t always want to speak about Steve as I can’t say any more good things about him. When you’re not expecting anything more he arrives with Jordan Rhodes.

Sounds to me like Karanka was fully on board with going for Rhodes in the summer, but just wasn't expecting it to still be happening in Jan

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
