Yeah I can see Kebano maybe looking elsewhere should they keep the same squad. I don't know how keen they will be to loan him out to a divisional rival, though and I'm not sure we can afford to buy him permanently.

His contract expires at the end of the season. Doubt he would cost too much

Reports in Turkey this morning that Besiktas have agreed terms with Akpom and they have begun to negotiate his price with Boro. I'd take anything over 2 million myself it has not worked out for him at all here.

Same pal. Albeit NW was dismissive of that link. With Payero he was not dismissive, just being coy.

I don’t think we could complain if they only offered around 1 million. 2 million or more and we’d be doing them over royally. Fingers crossed!

was reading the opinion of a couple of fulham fans on reddit yesterday, and they were both in agreement that as far as wingers go, Kebano is actually arguably one of their best options.

We stupidly sold Bamford to a rival so who knows we may get lucky and they do the same. Mind you they still have a Premiership quality squad whereas at the time we had a shower of the brown stuff so probably says more about the state of planning and thinking of Boro.

Looking at what Matt Crooks has said in his interviews and again we have a player who mentions the Premier League.

I know some are just trying to be realistic about our chances of making it there and I don't disagree with those, still need to be proved that we can actually make it with this manager and this squad.

But I still can't get over the fact some don't think promotion is even the aim or that even if it is, it's just some kind of pipe dream we tell people about to get them excited.

Promotion is the target, to me that's obvious with Warnock in charge but also all the murmurs coming out from the club is that this is once again an attempt to take this club up, not to be a safe mid-table side whilst we go through some kind of transitional period. I feel pretty justified in my view that we should view and judge this team as a team looking at trying to get promoted this season and finishing anywhere even outside the top 6 should be viewed as a pretty big failure.

We don't do positivity around here

Agree with all of that apart from the last sentence. 100% the aim for us should be and will be playoffs. However, this is the same as probably 14 teams in the league. Not getting in the playoffs, although would be disappointing, imo wouldn’t be a big failure. I don’t think we have the players to be deemed a failure if we don’t get top 6. Our squad is also very small with next to no depth if a few injuries occur. 
Im not being negative as I also feel we have a good as good a chance to get playoffs then other half of the championship battling for it. That’s the beauty of this league, every club has the chance to believe this year could be there year.
