Jovatic is moving to Hertha Berlin ūüėě there goes that completely legit link

BL did everything in his power to persuade the Montenegrin hitman to link up with Warny, but in the end the cultural flair of Berlin proved too much. 
 

So close yet so far

I think your final sentence there is key, Fry and Hall won't be fit all season judging off recent history. That said going off pre season I think he's likely to start in midfield alongside Morsy and Payero (if he comes), Crooks will be higher up the pitch

I suppose if one of those is then injured, then McNair can step into that gap. But personally I'm a little sceptical of his ability to play in a back 4 and I do think we can find better for those positions. Midfield is an interesting point, Warnock has mentioned he likes the 5-2-3, which would probably see McNair deployed on the left of a back 3.

But where I see potential for thinking McNair is surplus is in the 4-3-3 (Warnock has said he likes). If that is our go to formation for the season,  judging on the line-ups last season and who we've brought in (and looking to bring in Payero), I'm not sure McNair starts in a 4-3-3.

If we go 4-3-3 I reckon we'll see Crooks effectively take up a similar role to what Saville had last season. He'll be encouraged/allowed to step up from midfield (with the ball) and press (without the ball) alongside the lone striker. Think Morsy will be a starter most games and we know Howson is one of Warnock's favourites.

With Payero coming in, Wing potentially staying (obviously he may yet leave) and a few younger lads (Malley, Hackney) around the squad, I can see why the suggestion McNair is a sellable asset comes into consideration.

Joe bennett is still available on a free. Wonder if Warnock will be tempted the longer Bola is out

Probs not imo. Think Warnock wants a full back who can also play CB or visa verser hence the links with Bryan and Brown.

that's  a good shout, if he's recovered from his serious knee injury

I'd sign Joe Bennett tbf. Good player at this level.

Just an update from a journalist from South America, he does only have 1.5k followers so how true  I don’t know. Mentions in another tweet that it was Neil Bauser and Leo at the meeting.

If we’re moving on to this deal then Payero’s must be done.

I don’t want to get my hopes up too much about Muniz because if there’s teams like Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan sniffing then I’ll be amazed if we manage to sign him.

    • It's an abandoned proposal from the early 2010s, sadly.
    • Teesside Park is over a mile from Riverside..¬† you would need Middlehaven (formerly Cargo Fleet)...¬† Metro just fancy name for local rail services¬†
    • Out of interest is this Tees Valley Metro for real? And if so where is the Teesside Park Station located as it must be very close to The Riverside?
