How is that obviously a buy and sell club then?

We've not made a major sale in 2 years, and by your timescale we won't make another for a year yet.

We sold Saville 🤭

It's obvious BORO are now a buy and sell club , Gibson can't fund everything , Fry and Tavernier gone next season unless promotion which is a long shot. 

To be fair I think that bit is likely to be true but that's what happens when you're a Championship club with players who might be able to make the step up.

On the subject or Sporar its maybe worth thinking back to Pukki's time at another Club who also play in green and white shirts.

"Pukki's first season at Celtic was considered something of a disappointment as he struggled with form and failed to fill the void left by Gary Hooper who had left at the start of the season. Pukki himself later acknowledged the lack of impact he had made, admitting he initially felt playing in Scotland would be "easier" than in Germany. He found the speed and physical nature of the game in Scotland difficult to adjust to, and stated "Scottish football is not easy."

After that disastrous spell in Scotland with Celtic fans writing him off he has done OK since. There have been more than few times where Boro fans have opined why can't we uncover these hidden gems? Sporar does seem to have a similar flawed so affordable history.

Sporars goals per 90minutes are pretty good

But it's against weak opposition for two of the top sides in that league so you've got to factor that in.  His record in Slovenia and Slovakia was excellent though.  It seems a bit odd that he didn't start more for Braga when he went there on loan but if his issue is playing in Portugal then that loan wouldn't have made things any better for him.

his goal to 90 min ratio was still the 2nd best in portugal, 0.48 goals every 90 minutes is good enough, all beit in limited game time

Yeah it was one goal every 187.5 mins but it's the limited game time that bothers me a bit.  It feels like he's basically coming on often as a sub for good teams, grabbing a goal sometimes, but he isn't being selected to play much from the start for some reason, even when he went out on loan.  So his goals per minute record looks good but he still can't get into the starting line-ups.

We adore Tav .. but he wouldn't be a starter for a club like Westham ...

We aren't talking about teams like West Ham though, are we?  And certainly not a league like the Premier League.

You could say the same about Akpom. Maybe this season, in front of a crowd, if we keep him, he may realise his potential.

Just to go back to some comments a few pages back, is it common knowledge that we’ve had an offer on the table for Bolasie?

I kind of assumed we’d moved on to other targets with a view to possibly returning to him with an offer at a later date if nothing else materialised.

    • 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’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.
