Can we buy Peterboroughs scouting team instead?

HES 20 YEARS OLD.  I've said this so many times, the majority of players his age haven't even made a first team appearance yet and are still developing in the underage groups or in the lower divi

Some rare positivity from me, but I don't have a problem with the Lumley signing at all. He's young for a keeper, on a free, has a point to prove and by all accounts has a good attitude. We know

A mate of mine is a palace fan, he says that bolasie is open to going back there, it's on some Amazon program about them he watched.

Of course bolasie would be open to going back to the PL, but he didn't exactly rip the championship to shreds during his admittedly limited game time with us and I dont see them taking him back

According to news warnock has made contact with 5 players and I'd confident, we know one is bolasie, possibly jed Wallace, mpanzu, who do we think the other two are? 

Probably half the Sunderland squad, Bulge, Hume, ONein, Wyke and Jordan Jones

In seriousness Hume, Wyke, Williams, Bolasie and probably Chuks

i agree too , but my main annoying thing about all 3 is that theyre not giving us what they gave thier prevuios club. Howson had an eye for spectacular long range goals, Saville made late runs into the box and scored far more frequently and Morsy was a good solid defensive midfielder like clayton was in his prime here. all 3 have become centr-line sideway passers and with no subtlety in thier intentions. Wing i loved for his spectacular long range shooting and goals but midfielder wise there was no more to his armoury and he developed into what he was prior to us signing him..... a northern league class player.

Couldn't agree more, although you're maybe being a bit hard on Wing. Over the years, we've signed some great players who just haven't delivered when they came to Boro - too many to be a coincidence. We seem to be serially shøte when it comes to developing players. So where does that come from?

Found this tweet. Who is Stock Hudson? Sounds like a pornstar

L'Inter è forte su Stock Hudson laterale mancino inglese del Middlesbrough (Pedullà)

Used Google translate. Inter are strong on Middlesbrough's English left-handed stock Hudson (Pedullà. Looked online found a website for Spanish team called inter  no player listed. But the main thing was a company called stock Hudson worth a lot of money. Cash injection. Lol 🤣

I think it will be an Italian journo called Alfredo Pedulla. He has 200k followers. But I cannot find a tweet from him that mentioned any of our players.

    • Just looking at the actual comments made by BD, a couple of things come to mind. For one, the comment BD responded to was the one suggesting we go to the foreign market to buy players, not them. Secondly, BD has said it wasn't personal, that it could have been phrased better and I guess that's up to you whether you believe that or not but it's worth remembering that whilst they demonstrate excellent English skills, they aren't English and perhaps it would be mindful to think about that before jumping on them. Finally, BD is right, people do make comments like DR said. To look at the European market where better, cheaper transfers can be found, DR isn't alone in that. A lot of people do and have done even in the years following the original vote. That will be people all across the ~50/50, of course and it stands to reason there will be plenty of people annoyed by the fact 'we' voted that way not just for, but inclusive of the way we wanted our football club to be run. But ultimately BD is right that it is at the very least naïve to think we can operate in that market the way others have done in the past. We'll see how the laws around work permits change from here on but we left the EU and lost the freedom of movement and that inevitably brought challenges to recruitment, not just in the football industry. If you remember the time around the vote itself, immigration was a bloody huge topic so I'd be surprised if it changed that much. After all, why should footballers be any different? There are arguments for and against the long-term effects too, perhaps the development of players in this country can improve with a league less saturated by foreign talent. But opportunity isn't the only thing that drives the collective improvement of football, even at our level. There can surely be no doubt that the influence of foreign, especially European players and coaches has been felt in English football. Previous to us leaving, that was just less chance of us bringing those people to the Championship and lower levels. It feels like that gap to talent is only getting made bigger between the top level and below with these changes in the long-term. The best teams will still be able to justify bringing the best players and coaches in, we might less capable.
    • With puns like that you should emulate Ukraine's no. 25....  Positively Netherlands 13 :)..     good end to end game..  Ukrainian keeper MOTM  
    • borodanes point on Brexit is stating fact - get over it people - you voted for it! As for previous signings Woody seems to have done ok but was hounded out by the keyboard warriors who are better than him . Similar to Mogga really but ..... As for the “uninspiring” potential signings perhaps someone wants to Chuck a few million to Gibbo so that he can sign a world beater or two ...thought not! the World is in a bad place and my only hope is that there is a Boro in 12/24 months time as there will be teams that go under. If we offer x and a player wants y then we say thanks but no thanks and move on. If that means a Wyke or a Smith is wearing the shirt then I am fine with that                        
    • Netherland's no 25 is really pulling up trees...
