70-80 percentile chance of being shizer in the championship. If Balogun struggled I don't think Parrot will be much better. We need a couple of proven strikers where we know what we are going to get out of them most weeks.

im not saying for him to be our first choice, wilder likes 5 strikers, we have Coburn and Watmore (tho wouldnt mind Coburn getting a full season of game time on loan somehwere) who can be back up, i think parrott would make a good back up with them. Then sign two more strikers who are likely to lead the line. 

he had a good season last year and is only 20, He is getting good international experience with the ROI and has experience. Seems like he's ready to make the step up to championship level.

Really need some signings for the sake of this thread 

I only come to the thread to see what club teacider was getting transferred to in the summer and it don't even tell you, so don't expect any boro signings as well

The Payero situation was never going to end well. Gibson signed him, didn’t come from Warnock, Scott or Leo. 
 

I was told from someone outside of the club that he’d been offered around for much less than what we paid.

What you're saying doesn’t make any sense. I know why you’re trying to be smart but there is a difference between off the record talks and sanctioned talks where the player actually agrees a contract and it hits the media. I don’t doubt that Spence’s agent will have sounded out several agents from other clubs since January and now we’re apparently confident enough about a deal with spurs that we are letting them talk contract talks with the player 

The hypocrisy is strong in this one.

That's quite sad. Who went to Gibson about him? Did noone on the scouting or coaching side get a say? Very strange.

Great. The man just can't help himself. Stuff like that will always hold us back.

Not saying it's wrong, but why would Steve Gibson himself go out of his way to make sure we sign an unknown player from a mid-table team in Argentina?

He'll have been recommended him from somewhere, unless he's just got a much more niche interest in foreign football than the average Brit.

Gibson signs everyone, there is no way Gibson just plucked Payero out of thin air without a recommendation and thorough scouting of him.

Regardless of who recommended him, it's a still a problem if Gibson didn't consult the manager and the head of recruitment. It's not only a bad move internally but it doesn't help the player either.

Warnock certainly hinted at this with some of his comments on Gibson liking to sign a South American.

I remember a journalist talking about the signing at the time saying it was a strange one as the clubs in Portugal, Spain and Italy extensively scout the Argentinian league hoovering up talent.

To get to 21/22 year old and not be in Europe hints that no club though he was worth the gamble.

He did consult them.

Warnock said himself in press conferences that he'd spoken to Payero a few times before he finally signed.

Though they might well have said they didn't fancy it and Gibson sanctioned the transfer anyway.

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
