We're a yoyo club. We're just doing the 'walk the dog' trick at the minute...  

You have to remember that whatever Siliki is doing right now, he's playing under a manager that likes to completely bypass the midfield. Yesterday we resorted pretty much entirely to hoof ball. Sorry

Scott wasn't the Director of Football at Norwich, he was Head of Recruitment. His job was to identify good players at low prices who would improve the team. He did that successfully. He migh

He is hardly going to come out and say that he is looking at the direction that we intend to go with the management/coaching team whilst they are still in place...

 

...although I'm certain that's an area he will be addressing

Aye, that was just the usual ‘welcome’ interview from the club. Same as the player ones. 

Hopefully BBC Tees have him on one night for an hour or so. That will no doubt delve deeper into his vision and what/how he wants to go about his work.

Soft soap interview. He's Head Of Football. Recruitment is only one part of that. We will see his work when it comes to Warnock moving on.

I'm still wondering who the old face in a new role might be. I wonder if Scott is going to build a team under him. Almost certain I would think. It will take months and years for it to take shape. Hopefully we can have another good window in January and then start to plan for when Warnock moves on in the summer.

It will actually be easier if we are mid-table in January and everyone agrees a change is needed. I would guess Scott has an idea of coaches who he would like to see coming into Boro.

Warnock basically confirmed Siliki was Scott’s signing. If that’s the case I reckon he was involved in most the signings/ links abroad 

Proof, as if any were needed, that Scott has indeed been working for us while on "gardening leave" at Norwich.

I agree. Some posters said there was  no chance. 

I think those poster, myself included, said that he wouldn't work undercover without there being a clear understanding between Norwich and Boro. I refuse to believe that Boro or Scott would actively work together without Norwich's knowledge.

I doubt Norwich saw him offering Boro some support prior to joining as a conflict of interest, considering we're in different divisions and pursuing very different targets. Plus, without assisting us, he'd have been sat twiddling his thumbs throughout an entire transfer window, which would have been a waste of his talents.

It's the most overt acknowledgement yet that we are planning for the future, and when was the last time Boro fans could say that?

I never said he *was* working undercover, I just said he clearly already was working for us before he "officially" started.

    • A retired Shay Given gives us 15 more points than a season with Lumley
    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
