Lumley?

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

It can't just be me that has rarely watched McGree or not noticed him when I did watch

Is he worth the reported fee? Surely spells the end for Tav spending that much

Very possible. But as all Boro fans know Gibbo goes all in when he feels there’s a real opportunity for promotion, he must be feeling that under Wilder right now like we all are

Can see where the tav comparisons have come from. Left footed, good engine, drives forward from midfield and gets you up the pitch. Hoping this doesn’t spell the end for Tav though.

Looking at McGree on youtube he looks like he could easily take Tav’s place… if Tav goes.

His corners are better for starters.

(Thanks to the Celtic fan who put it on)!

Albeit only highlights but Tav is the clear better footballer for me

If Wilder's pushing for him though I trust him

Looks a snarly Terrier like grafter. I gave up watching the video after 4 minutes, he appears to show a lot of passion and determination but Tav is more composed on the ball. Maybe he is more of a new Grant Leadbitter (happy with that) after watching those clips rather than another Tav?

His corners do look far better than Tavs and if he chips in with a few goals then overall on paper it is probably a tick in the plus column.

Our Midfield is now pretty stacked. 
 

Howson/Boyd-Munce

Crooks/Payero 

Tav/McGree

- Payero

Potentially may be going out on loan (no option to buy) if we get 2 players in and our T&C's regarding his full wages are covered. His preference is to back to Argentina but clubs can't afford his full wages but interest also coming from German and Italian clubs who can cover his 18k wages.

Deal is to get him 1st team football and come back for the summer.

Deal makes sense especially if we don't renew Howson contract although talks have begun on that front but it will be even further reduced terms.

Not sure if people are aware but Howson's last contract extension under Warnock, he waved goodbye to 10k a week so the club could afford to sign Duncan Watmore. True reflection on what a top guy Howson is.

Oneboro everywhere. We're massive.

We are oneBoro how many more times!

BTW just had a couple of new forum members from Glasgow join up I wonder why?😉

I think there will be some banter aimed at DZ if I am honest! which is why I have approved them😁

This feels very similar when plenty of new faces arrived under Karanka and when we thought all was done suddenly more arrived.

Not getting too excited as there will be twists and turns but Lundstrum could be the icing on the cake

Would others agree that we are not going to see JLS in a Boro shirt again?

Would be sad to see him go but Hernandez looks a casualty in all of this.

Writing on the wall for Tav now seems very possible.

Payero what an inigma since he has been here but again another casualty alongside Hennandez.

 

Hall most likely going I would suspect, when will the cull begin, sooner rather than later?

Boro Fans:   All we do is sign centre midfielders can’t our scouts sign anyone else

Also Boro Fans: Yey!!!! Three New centre midfielders

In fairness we've spent the last 6 years playing as if we didn't have a central midfield, so it was a valid criticism.

Now our style of play relies totally on having 3 high quality CMs, and we look like we might soon have 4-5.

    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view  
    • Maybe if he was Slovenian and not from our academy he'd be the best thing since sliced bread 🤷
