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

Honestly not sure why people are that bothered about Lumley. Can be improved upon sure but we've had plenty worse than him.

Put it this way, if the window closes and Lumley is still between the sticks, I don't think that's going to be a significant factor between play-offs or not. He certainly wasn't the reason we lost on Monday night.

Though it as a nice change of pace that my only real frustration is that the club is struggling to move players out, rather than the usual last few days scrambling for signings.

Browne is a good decent player but injuries have not been kind these last few seasons, I doubt many clubs would be willing to match his current wages with his record if I’m honest. He needs a good run to get match fit and show himself and everyone what he can do.

its looking like it might be a loan move for him and I think if I was honest an 18 month loan till the end of his contract would be better for all, the loan club pays say 2/3 current wage we pay 1/3. He doesn’t loose out financially, we get a player in the shop window and every t/fer window we retain the right to sell. He has done nothing wrong and who knows a good run somewhere and he might show Wilder he was wrong.

I like Browne me just been unlucky with injuries. Like must of hit him mentally to of just came back scored last moment equaliser against Bournmouth then injured straight after to be out for over a year again. I think he has more ability than Colony like if he gets fit

I follow him on twitter and he comes across as a nice lad, he interacts with the fans on there and has a good sense of humour. Shame it hasn't worked out for him, mainly due to injuries as I think he has potential if he can stay injury free.

The money just isn’t there to take risks financially on transfers unless your in the Premier League and even then it’s tough. Any chance a club has to try and get a lower price will be used, and imo that’s fair, the number of players available outstrips demand as clubs are beginning to realise that the Academy Model is now a potential gold mine or black hole. 

Contracts pre covid and post covid will probably bear no resemblance to each other and that’s not good for clubs or players, but it’s something that’s been needed for a while as the wages of some youngsters at certain clubs are more than the wage bill of some clubs, agents/ players and clubs are going to have to accept this, it’s not all covid fault but it has brought it to a head.

So we are still after a couple more, trying to shift some out too.  We were all delighted with early business.  If the next few days ends up with a couple of missed incomings are we still happy?  I think I would be.  I certainly don't want a couple of panic buy deadline day players.

I think it’s been a good window regardless if I’m honest. I wouldn’t say no to a left footed CB but I don’t think it’s crucial if the right player isn’t available.

Pretty much this. Would hope we can shift a couple more out but im not exactly losing sleep over it.

    • 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.
