Just wish the crowd had been there for him! Would have been even more special then.

With these youngsters ... And if we can keep Bolasie and Kebab ... Plus add a few extra players ... I am looking forward to next season ... I know a lot of you are not, but that's not gonna spoil my o

Just for a minute imagine being in Josh Coburn's head at the moment. You are 18 years old, your gaffer has the belief in you to put you into the first team and you score with your speciality a header,

Warnock has previously described Coburn as John Stead like and you can see why from that goal and performance.

really pleased for the lad. 

It'd be great to have a Jon Stead-type player, but what we really need is a John Wick-type player. That'd make matchdays worth watching again...

I definitely think we've seen somewhat of an upward trend with his match fitness levels. If he's willing to take the big paycut I'd almost certainly have him back as it stands. Remains to be seen whether we will have the resources and pull to snap him up whilst also funding other important transfers though. He seems happy but he generally seems like quite a positive person anyway.

Very busy collating end of year accounts so not watched any football today but did look at the stats. 
I believe in our youth and we have seen many a superstar get a break around 17 / 18 years old so why are we holding back? Why is NW so hesitant putting energetic young players on when we have had some good games when they have been given the chance. NW just brought in a squad of underperforming players and a keeper that that’s cost us around 9 points this season so I just don’t trust him to guide our youth in modern football.

That just isn't true.

Our expectations for youth players are often warped by the rise of the occasional teenage wunderkind.

The reality is that the vast majority of players don't see proper 1st team action until their early 20s. 

Plenty of world class players were absolutely nowhere in their teenage years.

While clinically slaughtering the entire opposition team might guarantee more wins, I think the FA might take issue with it...

My mistake I assumed many a super star would indicate the few not the many as not everyone can be outstandingly successful. I understand and appreciate what you imply as there is a great physical difference between 18 and late 20 year olds and there is a fine line between being ready and nearly ready. I do love the energy, the speed they bring to the game. 
NW coaching today’s footballers is akin to Sterling Moss and Hamilton, both great but in different decades.

Been out all weekend and way too lazy to read through the whole thread.

Would anyone be a saint and summarise the game for me? How we played, who impressed, who didn't?

Cheers in advance!

    • 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¬†na√Įve 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.

    • 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 ‚Äúuninspiring‚ÄĚ 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 ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†
