I thought Darlow was 28 going on 29 but he 31. 32 in October. Albeit these are usually a goalkeepers prime years so here is hoping.

Yeah he's the prime age for a keeper.

Anything from Alan Nixon in tomorrows paper about is? He usually teases information on a Saturday evening?

And to be fair to him he been good for information this year. First one to call Lenihan and Roberts. And the Heaton rumour definitely had mileage as well as it seems he was on our list but we have gone for Darlow.

I don't know if this was mentioned today already but looks like Bale signing for LAFC and not Cardiff which, IMO is a huge boost for the Championship him not being upfront for them.

 

Too chime in on the McGoldrick, I think he is a fantastic short term deal for us. Knows Wilder, vice versa, brings leadership which we have lacked so obviously since Leadbitter left the club. Seems to always give 100%, scores goals and can be a handful for defenders.

 

With the addition of Lenihan as well, I like to think we are adding the leadership we have lacked. Maybe Friend as a back up LCB now, I'd be all over that personally but maybe just me.

 

Add in an experienced GK and a few ST's that score goals at this level and we are slowly but surely putting together what is clearly a Wilder team that I think is more than capable of getting us Promoted.

I agree on everything bar Friend .. He's done - He has no legs and couldn't find a way into a very weak side last season

To be honest I haven't seen enough of Friend recently, such a lovable guy and left footed lol. It's a heart over head choice probably.

Didn’t one of the ITK posters share something on a possible return for Friend earlier in the summer? 

That's what I thought was said, was seen with Neil Bausor I think? I think he has something to add in a back up position but again possibly heart over head.

To be fair, every move Boro make at the moment you think is fantastic so you're hardly one to talk.  I wouldn't call Lenihan or Roberts exciting signings but people seem reasonably happy with both.

I appreciate that optimism will be very difficult for you to understand so I'll try my best to explain mine for our recent signings. As one of Steve Gibson's biggest critics due to his complete lack of long-term vision, I'm delighted that he's brought in Scott to run things behind the scenes. I'm excited because of the long-term vision that's underpinning our recruitment, which I can see it in the signings so far this summer and even in the January permanent signing of McGree. Though, I was undoubtedly too optimistic in January regarding Balogun and Connolly as I thought they were exactly what we needed, but I got that very wrong.

My point is that signings who aren't exciting names such as McGoldrick as our 4th choice striker doesn't really warrant being met with such extreme negativity. He's been written off by a decent section of fans as a bad signing because he's not an exciting name; Without any regard to our system, squad role, budget available and what sorts of characters Wilder wants etc.

That’s right, I’d seen him in Yarm with Bausor and then the next day someone came on here and said he was coming back

    • 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.
