Wilder said we had a couple outgoings sorted already. Might the second be delayed if the player was one that got COVID. Would put it back 7-10 days for medical.

maybe same for incoming, maybe a couple of days if we closed hurwoth etc..

Or an outgoing delayed (Tav) until his replacement is confirmed?

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 suppose if you are getting 8-10 million for Tavernier and replacing him with one of the above for 2-3 then that looks pretty shrewd business to me.

No chance in hell we are paying that kind of fee for those players. I would certainly be disappointed if we paid that kind of fee for those players although I’ll admit that my knowledge of them is purely on paper so I could be very wrong but their careers don’t really warrant a significant fee.

In fact, if his fee was tiered in terms of how many goals he's scored, then why would they sell him to us now rather than at the end of the season when he's scored more goals?

And if we aren't likely to buy him if we get promoted, which goes against the terms of the deal that were leaked, why would we buy him halfway through a season, when we might not want him at the end of the season?

If we sell a player now it's because we want to sell that player, for footballing or financial reasons.  I doubt it's to pay for a player we already have playing for us.

If Leeds and Newcastle are trying to improve their squad in an effort to remain up or longer term to ensure that they have a competitive squad if they come down and have identified Tav as ideal then I would guess that Boro will look at it purely on a Commercial basis.

If the money offered is acceptable Boro will sell but I doubt we have a need to sell and certainly not as you say to pay for someone else that doesn't need paying for as yet. If the offer is too good to refuse, very likely with Newcastle's clout (and helped if Leeds are also bidding) then I reckon he will be sold and the links with the St. Mirren and MK Dons lad would make perfect sense.

We’ve got 13 days until the next league game and already have Payero to fill in so if we have received an acceptable bid I think it’ll just get done.

I don’t. We probably don’t need to sell and we don’t owe anyone any favours, so why not wait until we have an acceptable replacement lined up? Also if both Newcastle and Leeds are interested in Tav then a bidding war is very much in our interests. I think it would probably make more sense to sell at the end of the window to be honest.

Hit the nail on the head watched an interview with andy scott the new recruitment bloke we are getting said Brentford’s success was down buying early in the window to replace what they would sell late in the window at a higher price

What if Newcastle have bid a lot more than we want ie 15 million but they want their players in early due to their predicament so have set a deadline for Tuesday. We might not be able to ‘afford’ saying no.

Must be a silly offer for us to consider selling now (if we are). No point otherwise.

On another note Aaron Connolly must have the smarmiest/most dislikeable face going.

Don’t worry you will grow to love his smarmy face when he starts banging the goals in 😜

Prob sell for anything around 8-10mill.

That would be too cheap for me. Minimum should be 12m or we should keep him

    • imo, anyone who criticises Marcus T either doesn't see us playing very often or doesn't have a particularly good understanding of the game. Not meaning to sound harsh, but his contribution to the team is very clear to see. He's not perfect by any means, but then not many players are, especially at this level. If you're just simply looking for players to criticise then there are usually about 8 or 9 players you should start with before Mr T each game  
    • 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
