What you going on about¬†ūü§£

Also you called me pedantic earlier when yesterday you brought up all these stats to say "Akshually i think you'll find they scored 16 goals not 15¬†ūü§ď"¬†or whatever and you were wrong anyways

I wasn't wrong, you were counting players that weren't shown in the graphic.

Do you think Woodgate would have managed 3 games in a week?¬†ūüėÖ

No mate, but the season in question we had ayala, Gibson, Kalas, r Williams as well as woodgate. We also had fry coming through and de laet who could play CB from January. We also only played 2 centre backs.

That's why I'm not worried though. Just because Bamba is going to turn up, doesn't mean he's first or even second in line to go into the side if we lose a couple of defenders.

By all accounts, we are after 1 or 2 other potential left-sided defenders and in both Bryan and Brown are looking at 2 players who can play centre-back. Even at this moment in time have Hall, Fry, McNair, Dijksteel and Peltier at the very least before we even think of Bola or Bamba or anybody else coming in. Discounting Wood here as I suspect he'll go out on loan.

I just don't think Warnock is sat there thinking Bamba is first or second to be called in in case of a crisis right now. He won't play him if the others are available, he's there for big emergencies and probably for cup games where he won't want to play the first team players and would mostly be there on a super low budget contract to help around the squad.

I mean this whole teaching the kids how to play football that people overrate about senior players

If we bring him in as a basically a player/coach type gig then whatever but if people think signing Bamba means back ups sorted then I pray Fry never gets injured

As per the above, look at our list of defenders and the fact we're looking at another 1 or 2. I don't see why anyone would look at this potential signing and think he's gonna be playing unless we have a huge crisis.

and this year we'll have Fry, Hall, McNair, Dijksteel, Peltier, Bola and probably one of Bryan/Brown all ahead of Bamba.

We really need another keeper unless we want another Bettinelli in goal this season.

Stoj wants to leave and who the *** knows what's happened to Sol Brynn.

Have you really decided Lumley is another Bettinelli?

Well I have no problem if we bring in a really solid CB that would compete for the 1st team spot as presumably he'll be on a pittance

I haven't seen much of Brown or Bryan but apparently they're more LBs who can play CB, I'd rather us keep Coulson around and bring a solid out and out CB in personally

This is how I'm viewing it as well. I know you were allowed to name a larger matchday squad last season, but it was pretty common that every fit player we had was involved. This year I'm hoping we have enough depth that we can actually afford to leave players out altogether, and only call on them when we need to. If we sign Bamba, this is where I imagine he'd fit in.

Say we lose dijksteel to injury and fry gets suspended for 3 games. Were playing someone who plays 3 at the back so we want to match up. 

Immediately were looking at 

Peltier hall McNair bamba Bola (assuming Spence is sold and fishers injury is as bad as it seems)

A back 5 with a 34 year old and a 36 year old who haven't been playing. With no one on the bench. We might well sign another but for right now, that's not the case. Who's to say bamba isn't the back up to one of those other signings if they don't go through and he's the only one we end up with? That's what I'm worried about.

It's all hypotheticals for now, but I don't see the value of someone who can't step in and be an able deputy long term if things go wrong.

you're more likely looking at 

Peltier - Hall - McNair - Brown/Bryan - Bola

Like I said, neither of them have signed, bamba could well be considered an alternative rather than an addition. Well have to see what the makeup of the squad is at the end of the window.

There's a lot of assumptions you're making there though, mate. 1 player being sold and not replaced, 1 specific player being injured and another suspended. You know how I said big emergencies? Huge crisis? This is that scenario.

I don't see why we'd sell Spence and not replace him, either, really. He's played a lot in pre-season. Peltier was Fisher's cover apparently so I'd think Spence would be replaced.

Okay so my assumption that we'll sign one isn't allowed, but your end of the world assumptions are fine? 

At the end of the day if what you're suggesting happens, that's a freaking unfortunate crisis that might cause Bamba to have to play, yes. The likelihood of all of those things happening seems incredibly low.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"¬†¬†¬†
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts.¬†
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.¬† ¬† We all know it‚Äôs the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren‚Äôt clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again .....¬†
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.¬† That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.¬† Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
