the financial reality will hit him in 4-5 weeks and he'll have to accept something much worse or end up in Australia 

Just like the financial reality was going to hit Fletcher, and then he signed a 5 year deal with Watford.  If he's turned the deal down then either it was a lot lower than he was already on or he 'knows' he can get better elsewhere.  I don't believe that wages across football are going to decrease.  I think what might happen is that clubs will be a little more circumspect when it comes to throwing money at just any old player but it won't be as common as you'd think.  Salaries will end up being roughly the same overall.

He might not get better offers a couple months into an ACL injury, think that's the key difference between him and Fletcher.

He turned the contract down mate.  He already knows what he's likely to get elsewhere and it's more than he was being offered at Cardiff otherwise he'd have just signed for them.  It's not any different to Fletcher, who was almost certainly offered less to sign on again here, but he knew he could get a better deal elsewhere.  The injury is an issue but the situation is no different.  Players know what they have a chance of getting somewhere else, and if the Cardiff offer was a sizeable reduction, which I reckon it probably was, then he'll believe that there's more money somewhere else, and there probably will be.

Just because we were linked last summer with him.

sam clucas has been told he is free to leave Stoke if he can find another club. He has another year in his contract but Stoke want him off the wage bill.

Clucas was one of the five players Warnock named as “his 5 to watch” for the season in an article he did last summer for a paper i think.

Nelson of Cardiff

Lolley of Forest

Toney of Brentford

Delefeou of Watford

and Clucas of Stoke

Boro have enquired about the services of Clarke Harris from Peterborough, according to a Peterborough fan friend of mine, us and forest said to be interested. I would love him here.

West Brom, Sheff Utd, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Swansea and Rangers have all been linked with him. 
 

The reported fee is upwards of £6 million so unfortunately I don’t think there is even the slimmest of hopes of us getting him.

Be lucky to get him for that. They were quoting 8m for Dembele when we enquired last time lol

Liverpool willing to loan out Caoimhin Kelleher for experience. We're after a keeper and he's looked solid whenever he played for Liverpool, kept a few clean sheets. Also his kicking is really really good which is right up Warnock's street.

We should be all over this surely?

Depends on if we're set on Lumley being our number 1. Liverpool are pretty notorious for their rules on how much their loanees need to play, so if he came he would likely have to be number 1.

Aye that was my worry, especially with their loan policy. Obviously don't wanna write Lumley off before he's even had a chance but would be nice to have 2 viable goalkeepers.

your trying to stawman the arugment by claiming people are demanding exciting players, nobody is saying that( or at least im not saying that) , were just pointing out the fact that robson- kanu is a bang average on a good day and his stats prove that he is generally a poor player.

you keep mentioning 10 goals like hes done that consistantly, as i mentioned previously, hes done it once in his entire career and actually only averages 5 goals a season and has scored more than 5 goals only twice in his near 15 year career. his assists stats are even worse, 4 a season on average.

and these averages are based on a 46 game season, its highly unlikely he will play every game so he'd  most likely end up  getting 3/4 goals and 2/3 assists based off his average. 

but for the sake of argument, lets say he does play every game, here is a list of boro players from  who have a better combined goal/assist ratio based on last seasons stats (averged over a 46 games).
Mcnair, morsey, Johnson, saville, tavanier, kebano, bolaise, watmore and ashley fletcher.

that should say it all really. stastically he is not just poor, but as iv now shown is no better than what we've already got/had at the club.
 

 



 

I'm confused because you literally used the word excite

Zach Hemming as no.2 to Lumley? Just seen his (double) save of the season

No chance. Warnock already said as such.

He'll be singing his praises when the window shuts and we've signed no one else
