Anyone else rather invest time into Spence than giving a past it Hoilett a chance? 
 

Id rather have Coulson play as a RW option for a year tbh. It’s absolute fantasy land that we will get promoted next season. Blend the youngsters with experienced pros in a proper system and let them flourish. What is the point of signing a past it player who will not be good enough for the premier league anyway if that’s our intended goal?

Yep me too. Hoillett has been around since 2009 and has never broke 10 goals in a season and he's only broke 10 combined goals/assists in a season twice (one of which being in 2011). He's got more career yellow cards than assists.

I've always thought he was very overrated from the eye test and the stats seem to back that up. The fact hed be 31 when he signs is just an added issue, but his actual ability is the main sticking point for me

I have never understood the logic of “why are we signing someone for a promotion push who wont be good enough for the PL” 

Can we at least get to PL first?

Every single team that gets promoted has some players that are not good enough for PL but definitely good enough for championship. Idea is to build a team for promotion.

And in relation to Spence and Coulson being wingers. Just absolutely no from me.
 

This board has rightly criticised Warnock for using spence as a winger this season so lets not suggest doing something which we as fans have rightly been criticising all season

@Borolad1876 i agree. Kebano was ok but not too fussed on him.

Bolasie in his 15 appearances got 3 goals and 4 assists having not kicked a ball for 6mths prior to arriving. Over a full season with a proper season I would be confident he could get close to double figures for both goals and assists. BUT if his wages are too high then I wont lose any sleep over him not coming as he not the be all and end all for me.

NML for me is a strange one. I cant help but think with a full pre season he could prove to be very useful. Odd thing to say has he done next to nothing since being here but his personal circumstances over last year probably had a lot to do with that. He strikes me as a Watmore in that he a very low risk option financially where the rewards could be similar.

Not overjoyed by this Hoilett news by any stretch, but like any new signing who puts on a Boro shirt, i'll give him a fair crack before judging him. Hopefully it's only a short term contract to see if he's worth it.

    • 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’s 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’t 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.
    • My view of NW or any other manager is based on KPI in the case results which if plotted on a scatter chart would have Snr management panicking. The failure is in constancy, quality, communication and leadership, and the last three games although favourable, still reveal work to do.  Of course there are fans who remained loyal to NW and some will be swayed and fall back in line by recent form, but one thing I’m pretty sure of, love him or hate him, he is here until the season finish’s.  NW is going to provide plenty of material to keep this forum interesting for a while longer.   
    • That's true but for the first time today I saw the seeds of a good side forming and a week on the training pitch can only make things better....I hope I'm right
