Jean-Paul Boëtius, a Dutch winger/attacking midfielder.

Can't see there being anything in that personally.

I don't think he had more than an average game in his time with us, and more often than not he was poor. I don't think he would have made a difference. But a decent, fit back up to fry could have done. Just have to learn from it and strive for the 2 for every position model that karanka had, with your woodgates, bambas, peltiers of the world coming in for an odd game here and there, and every for 3 games in a week.

Hall is another one of those pointless Players I thought we should never have signed, mediocre to not bad on his day at this level, experienced to a degree but injury prone.

He was available however after the Bournemouth game and had to be better than a cream crackered Bamba at the time. If we didn't sign these types of players in the first place we wouldn't find ourselves in these situations.

Last point is nail on the head. But it goes to show how hamstrung wilder was by what the previous manager did. He had these players in the squad that he had zero use for or desire to put in the team so he had to play the same 11 every week and they were busted by the end of the season.

You can point to his signings in Jan and of course they didn't do the job, but we couldn't just go out and sign a whole new side when we were stuck with so many of the previous regimes players. I'm reasonably confident that if we replace those players we'll look a completely different team, with the ability to rest players when tired.

Pretty much agree with all that and I think that is where my concern about the current link with Clark is apart from me not rating him. I get the experienced leader thing especially at the back but I just wish we would stop signing so many "wise old heads".

I think it's a lazy link that's come up because he's at Newcastle and we need a centre back. I don't want him, and I really don't think he's on wilders radar. If he wanted some experienced defenders I think he'd be looking at his old sheff utd lads. I think he'll be sniffing around enda Stevens in particular.

Here's the video we shouldn't show to people we're trying to sell Lumley to 😂 

God he's horrendous

Bettinelli surely wasn't that bad was he? Managed to purge most of his games from my memory thankfully

It's truly awful watching that. As bad as our forwards are you've got to say Lumley cost us more points than anything else this season. Horrendous player.

Lumley is horrific but from what I remember Bettinelli was worse, at least Lumley had some alright games. Bettinelli used to spill every shot that came near him and barely made any saves.

6 goal involvements in 30odd games and plays in positions we literally have no chance in seeing him in. I think there's a very good chance we are interested it sounds bang on for us that.

I wonder if he can run through brick walls n all?

Honestly I think he must have had some sort of mental breakdown. There's no way he was that bad when he got a call up for England only 2 years before it's just not possible or was it?

This, he made Lumley look like a reasonably competent keeper.  His spills of what should have been easy takes, either ended up in a goal or pen for the opposition and I'm fairly sure one of them resulted in Morsy getting sent off.  His positioning was awful as well, especially for that goal away at Huddersfield.

Literally only his age. 35 in Nov that counts against him. Also released Luke Freeman. This was the lad at QPR who played that no.10 very well but has really struggled since moving to Sheff Utd for big money.

    • I just don't think we can criticise the man management here without being privvy to the conversations behind the scenes. You don't know if those players have made the decision to not train with the side. It does now seem like an error not to have him involved earlier, but that's with hindsight and without the benefit of the full story. so... Just one of those things for me, no one should be getting particular criticism for it. 
    • I don't know whether I'd be shocked or not to hear Akpom is on that much. Shocked because I'd be surprised we spent that much at that time on a single player's wages but also not that surprised because this club has wasted all kinds of money on wages. I don't get the feeling Wilder would have taken one less player on his pre-season because he had higher wages, though, if he thought he was a good player, particularly given the striker shortage. I can't see the club being very bothered about one year of a £20k deal either (so much as to block Wilder from using him), it's entirely dependent on whether we could actually sign better for less than the £1m in wages we would have committed to that player and that £1m was unlikely to be recouped entirely because who else would pay £20k a week for him? We'd be paying some of that and it would likely have been another loan deal. I very much believe Wilder didn't want him here and it's only as the window has continued to move at a snail's pace that he saw fit to bring him back into the fold. I don't think many Boro fans would have wanted Akpom to stay either so it's hardly a surprising situation that the manager wouldn't, it's just I'd expect the manager who is paid to get the best out of our squad not to dismiss a player he's ultimately never seen anything of in training, especially when he's under contract. Now it seems like he sees some value in him. Perhaps it's not his perfect striker but he's contracted at the club and at a time when we've struggled for forwards, a full pre-season could perhaps have helped us start the season better. In a perfect world, Wilder would have had his other targets in and Akpom would be gone but you know, baby and bathwater and all that. Feel like that's one of my favourite phrases at this point.
    • Prediction for the Week: Hoppe and a midfielder on loan. Feel we need 6-7 signings to compete and have enough depth for January. LCB, CDM, RCM, ST, ST, ST at a minimum. Ideally another LCM and a creative wide player to rotate with Giles & Jones. Personally, I'd move Bola & Watmore on if we get offers of 500k-£1m.
    • I disagree. Part of the pre-season is to build the team bond. If you have people who aren't wanted, they most likely won't really be the happiest campers around the rest of the team. That makes them slightly toxic, I'd guess. I would think that Akpom was very much hoping for a move, as were the club (big wages for a player who isn't in your plans). From Chuba's point of view, his only time playing here was for a manager who didn't play a game which suits him. If moves fell through, then maybe it started to make more sense to bring him in for a short while to build up numbers. After all, he's more likely to play than Uche. Does seem like our recruitment was maybe more forward thinking in selecting him than we've been giving them credit for.
