God, losing that "e" is a dangerous game......

My thoughts really. Being a manager nowadays is as much about PR as anything else. He judged this one wrong, even if he has no intention of going anywhere. I certainly won't hold it against him, but can't help but feel the more negative cohort of fans might if results aren't up to scratch. He's just made his life a lot harder for no real good reason.

Exactly!

Even if he felt it was a stupid and unnecessary question, he could have said so and immediately squashed any further speculation by giving a definitive answer. Its not that hard.

Instead he just came across as a Fergie wannabe where, telling them what questions he will and won't answer.

If he was to go I would be looking at Daniel Farke who is currently unattached.  

I see where you're coming from, but we'd just have to ditch him if we got promoted.

Dyche all day long.

In all honesty it would be interesting to see what he could do at a club with some ambition, willing to loosen the purse strings a bit.

It would just mean we kiss goodbye to re-signing Ben Gibson...

Me.  I don't have any inside information though, I just wanted to keep the drama going on here.

Daniel Farke and Reiziger are the standout, realistic options for me.

Reiziger would give us access to the Eredivisie market, with potentially Ajax and Manchester United loanees next season as well, with Ten Hag heading there.

If nothing is happening then there's no need for a public statement, IMO. But I would like it if he answered the question straight when asked.

There is something happening though, isn't there?  Boro aren't oblivious to what is being said on forums like this, on social media everywhere.  Wilder won't be oblivious to it either.  I'm a little surprised that the Gazette weren't given access to do a short interview with Wilder to knock it all on the head.  Of course you can't do that interview if there might be some truth to it all...

Hes a manager who will be in demand. Will they have to put a statement out every time a lower Premier league job comes up?

He was a bit daft in the press conference but the reaction is silly now. 

No but every time you have a manager linked to another job you are likely to want to say something about it.  Why wouldn't you?  I don't see any benefit to staying silent in that situation.

Unless of course CW thinks that he can keep Burnley up…I presume that is what the owners have in mind, why else would they have sacked Dyche?

I don't think they really know what they are doing.  With a handful of games remaining, and your stay in the Premier League on the line, you'd think you'd know who the next guy is before you sack the current one.

I think you just need to heed my words, when you unravel and unwrap everything, a unicorn without its horn is just a horse.

I can't heed your words mate.  I've been fooled too many times before.  It's made be the cynical *** that I am today.

    • 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.
