We are such a depressing fan base, we should add a signature to each post with the contact details for Samaritans

I get we have had a poor few years but isn't football meant to be a distraction to the ills of the world

Samaritans put the phone down when you identify yourself as a Boro fan!

What is the current situation regarding the "flair" South American signings we are all hoping to arrive at MFC.

To be honest I always think that if we have not captured the player within the first fortnight of declaring an interest then it never seems to happen.

The two lads already mentioned might just might come to Middlesbrough on holiday

Muniz is probably going to fulham it seems. Probably be more news tonight. Payero deal has small financial complications according to Warnock, should be sorted though. The other South American signings no one even knows the names of. Lazaro has been mentioned, but only by an itk not any media reports iirc

To be fair, in the last few years on here, a fair few people have fallen out of love with it, especially those who spend a lot of money to watch it every other week and have had to put up with Pulis, Woodgate and Warnock. It's more like a bad addiction than a distraction at times.

The saga continues.... We have gone in with improved offer hoping that Flamengo pull out of negotiations with Fulham!

Fulham offering player around 25-30k a week where ours is believed to be just under 20k.

Fulham will just match whatever we throw at them, like earlier

For an untested 20 year old with very little first team experience, that seems like a very dangerous gamble for us.

At some point they can't afford to, not without selling. It's why they're trying to do so many offers as loans with obligations.

I do get that I really do but a hint of Ali Brownlee optimism wouldn't go amiss now and again

I'm guessing more upfront and smaller instalments in exchange for a lower sell on %.

At this point before last season, we had signed Grant Hall, whilst losing Friend, Ayala, Shotton, Gestede, Morrison, Pears and Clayton plus the loanees.

We didn't make a second signing until the day before the opening game.

This time we've lost Johnson, Fletcher, Assombalonga, Mendez-Laing, Archer, Saville, Wing and the loanees, but have already brought in 5 replacements with more on the way, the season doesn't start for another 11 days and the transfer window doesn't shut for well over a month.

We're in a much more stable place than the start of last season financially too.

Yes but its the quality or lack of it we have brought in so far that worries me. Would not of been bothered on jot if we had not signed any of the players we have so far.

    • Yeah I didn't think Gary went after Boro at all. Deluded sheep botherers heard one soundbite in isolation and decided that he did for some reason.  He was more asking how as a football community have we got into this situation... How has someone like Morris been allowed to do this. And how can we stop it happening again? 
    • I’m surprised that they still allowed tickets to be sold without announcing some form of checks for this match. It’s not like it wasn’t going to be popular....
    • I think Gary Neville's statement was really good. I thought he spoke with balance and ultimately aimed the questions at the right people, really. It's the view of football in this country and how we manage that situation. He said clubs should be like listed buildings and in one respect I agree as the culture and history of football is huge in this country. But also, you can't afford the government to look out for them when they're also ran by massive risk-taking owners. Which is why we have a Fit & Proper test and FFP and all those things, to try and protect the clubs from the people who run them. But whilst those things only provide an obstacle that these bell ends can overcome, you aren't really protecting anything. And whilst football clubs are like other businesses, that legitimises our claim because Derby have been run like a regular business, not like a club that cares about staying alive. And when the crap hits the fan, they want all the protection in the world, they want MPs to stand up for them, they want local media to challenge us because we're being ***, they only want to pay 25% of their deferred bloody tax. Whilst that's the situation, we should treat them like a regular business. If they want to be treat as part of the football family, they should have acted like a part of it to begin with.
    • So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?
    • tbf Gary didn't belittle the claim, he said if football is a family then the clubs would drop it, even if the claims are legitamite. He also then pointed the finger back at Mel and the administrators. It was clear he was generalising and didn't have the full facts, but he was basing his responce on what happened to Bury. However, that was a much milder screw up than Derby, so not a like for like comparison
