I keep logging in to check on the transfer thread...but then I remember that we have shopped early. I love competence...but it's so less exciting.

“The January Transfer Window thread 2022 - Any other business?”

“The January Transfer Window thread any other year - Any  business at all?”  Hey - it’s not 31st January 8.00pm yet - just wait and see.

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

I used to love Quickly Kevin but as soon as it got a Patreon it just seemed to disappear up it’s own **** a bit. I really struggle with the forced Scull laugh.

best football podcasts

Boro Breakdown - best Boro specific pod. 

Golazzo - has the Channel 4 music and James Richardson, amazing for anyone who likes Italian football - episodes have run dry.

Second Tier Pod - championship specific pod, usually very good and everyone gets some coverage, although the Derby bias is starting to slip out a bit

Ignore my Second Tier Pod recommendation  - theyve just gone in two footed on Gibson calling him "pathetic", "petty" and a "bully". so that's the end of that"

@ScarBoro i do like an optimist 

The business already done has made me pretty optimistic. I wouldn’t be surprised though if there is still  last day activity. Sometimes clubs insist on getting their other deals done before selling/buying your player or the one you want.    Think Siliki could be a last minute deal by someone for example, trying to get him on the cheap and us wanting to get at least part of his wages off the books.. 
With what we have already  done we can afford to be relaxed about it. Difference this year is that any more deals will be the icing on the cake, not a stale mouldy old cake itself.

That's massive news, changes things fundamentally for a lot of top clubs.

Read earlier it's specifically for players over 21, so clubs can still loan out all their 300 18 year olds every year, they'll just have to sell them earlier in their career!

Chelsea screwed

Not really. They'll just sell 30 fringe players to lower league clubs in the next couple of windows, and carry on bidding stupid fees for senior squad players thanks to their dodgy-AF oligarch owner.

And that is the correct way to do it, it lets youth teams get players much needed experience. But will get rid of hoarding players! 👌

It's so boring with boro having done their business early. There is no transfer sagas at all to discuss 

efficiency is boring 😞

@boksicdink do these people not know we Teessiders can carry a grudge to the grave, just look at Clough/Taylor

Oh yeah i've unsubscribed now, i'm done with them. 

Hope the Boro Breakdown Podcasters (if they are reading) end their association with them too

few buy-back clauses and they will almost carry on as they are now

In Chelsea's and other such hoarders cases maybe a few more players will get close to their potential by getting themselves clubs at a better place in the development curve.

    • John Ruddy been officially let go by Wolves it seems, I wouldn't be totally against him signing. Was always a Good Championship level keeper for both Wolves and Norwich. I read something regarding George Friend a few pages back the other day and I would be totally all for it, would add some great leadership and the fans would surely be right behind him still and as a left sided centre back I think he could do a real job for us even if just as a back up option. Also heard the Rhodes rumors and I personally believe he is a perfect Wilder Striker, such a hard worker and a great finisher. Which leads me to my final former Boro player, Ben Gibson. I again would love to see him return and think he could flourish in the left sided centre back role for Wilder's system. I do think the best options for those outside centre back roles are more suited to a full back converted/secondary centre back but at Sheff United Wilder didn't always have that option and was still greatly successful. If Fry was to leave Gibson would be great in the middle of the 3 of course.  
    • Very strange move, but apparently it's a three-year contract and for good money. He'll finish is career mid-table in the Championship.
    • Nothing mate. Just a hunch feeling. 
    • Heard something more or just speculating?
