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 like the idea that we have three senior goalkeepers, another few younger prospects, and we need to bring a new goalkeeper in on loan 🙂

Honestly it's got its logic I suppose. Brynn, James or Hemming could be our GK of the future, but Brynn & Hemming are both doing really well on loan, so it's probably worth letting them continue their good form for the rest of the year up in Scotland. As for Brad James, is he even back from his elbow problem yet? Haven't actually heard anything about him all season.

If Wilder doesn't like any of the 3 senior GKs we have, getting in a young loan GK till the summer when he can properly assess our three youngsters isn't the worst thing in the world. 

Personally believe Sol Brynn will be our number one next year, just something about him I really like.

Based on what?

I cant write him off because ive not seen enough of him, I dont even know if he is actually a footballer or not!

 

Based on his history playing in the top tier of France, rather than his disjointed first half a season with us. Whether it's adapting to the new league, the being away all the time due to internationals, home sickness or simply couldn't do what NW wanted, it's difficult to say, but his history playing for Rennes suggests he can succeed in this league.

Agreed.  He has shown nothing so far to base any opinion on.

you're allowed to base an expectation on his history, so my expectation is he will be better than he's shown so far based on his history in France.

I wasn't being critical of him I was just stating a fact that he hasn't featured yet but your right his history is a relevant consideration

At some point I'd like to see a manager come in and improve the players he's got, I'd like to see some signs that he can develop a style of play without needing to sign 15 players. 

Karanka did it and when he showed that he was able to mould a team with a good shape and pattern of play THEN he was backed in the transfer market.

I don't like this idea that a new manager comes in and immediately has to rebuild, the general consensus on here was that this squad was capable of playing more attractive football and it was underachieving. Now it needs massively changing? 

Its the same with every appointment revolution rather than evolution and that's what everyone has been complaining about. Let's see if Wilder can find a way to get the best out of players like Tav, Watmore, Hernandez and Sporar there's a bit of flair there.

Alright add a couple of players to it fair enough but I don't see the sense of ripping everything up.

Karanka signed 9 players in the winter of the season he took over from Mowbray.

Is that right? I remember him getting a few players on loan but don't remember a load of changes.

Woops, 7 actually, I counted loans to permanents twice by mistake.

Ayala (technically Karanka but that's more on Mowbray), Tomlin, Chalobah, Omeruo, Graham, Meijas, Given.

But the point stands.

6 then and 5 of them were on loan! Ayala was definitely signed by Mowbray. More than I thought actually, do you know how many players left the club during that spell?

13, I think, but I'm counting at the match, though some were youth and goalkeepers.

It has all the transfers and dates in this article.

Agree with this 100%

    • What's been ignored in all of this transfer noise is , a striker scored on his debut ,  COB
    • Found a Dutch defensive midfielder Mees Hoedemakers who may fit the requirements, unfortunately again in the highlights his defensive ability not shown.  The Italians in the previous post and this player have valuations of 1.2 million euros or less if Transfermkt can be believed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTj5iZhK0Rs Also an Australian box to box midfielder I'd recommend Boro have a look at is Angus Thurgate, a big improver last season, became more of a threat going forward and  definitely handles the defensive side as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGb-QtRhfas
    • Choudhury looks he would be a top signing if he wants to come here, someone said he's rejected us twice though. Here are two other defensive midfielders I've come across on database searches, both Italian. Pity that their short highlights don't include their defensive efforts, but they both look like they can control play in possession well. Both also have been loaned extensively by their parent clubs, they might be interested in a permanent home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do1xIWsDD8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYhm0Rt6PTk
    • Clearly Parker not the only coach that isn’t in charge of recruitment 
    • Just a thought but....   General concensus is we need a lcb and at least two midfielders. And in reality the only ones we've been "linked" with are greaves, choudhary and hannibal. All British based players. We also need at least one more striker, and we've been linked with hoppe, Henry, larsen to name but 3. I wonder if there are possibilities of us finding a gem or two for the defensive and midfield positions from abroad too. Especially given the eredivisie link and we have only really been linked to 1 player from the Dutch league.
