Trying to find the quotes now, but it was either as a pundit or when he was Cardiff manager saying he'd love a player like Lewis Wing.

I believe it was when he was a guest on the FL highlights show.

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

I'm struggling to find it right now, because every search is coming out with Warnock's comments on loaning him out.

It wasn't excessive praise or anything, but he definitely commented on how he'd have loved a player like Wing.

I've got a feeling it was the period between being sacked by Cardiff and hired by us, where he did punditry on Sky Sports.

 

Here it is

It was. You are right. He said Wing and Paddy are a mangers dream and he always been a fan of both.

Hahahah.

I'd forgotten the Gestede quotes, that's even funnier.

"When you needed him, he was good".

Warnock enters the Boro job in a relegation battle and his first act is to say "*** off, Gestede".

It was Gestede who essentially told us and Warnock to f**k off.

Warnock wanted him to play but he said he not risking injury as come summer when he a free agent he would not get a club so would only play if we offered him a new deal.

Gestede refused to play beyond his actual contract, which whilst a bit *** I can understand, Warnock sent him home before it actually ran out.

He started in Woodgate's last game.

I had no problem with Gestede being sent home early, I just find the clash with his comments on Quest funny.

I think Payaro will be the one that threatens Tavs position in the team and it'll hopefully get Tav shooting on all cylinders again. 

Tav is a supplier and should be judged on assist and creativity. Tav return shoots to conversion is exceptionally poor but reading the stats alone won’t reveal the true picture as to why. Although there are a few of our players that lack that required finial decision making skill. Wasted shots are unproductive and it’s an area a manager needs to correct. A few options to consider, defined roles, fitness level, leadership, game plan. 
I think Chris already knows who, what and where needs improvement and I also believe he has the power to make changes. I think we are seeing improvement within the current squad but I also believe we won’t be seeing all the same faces come the start of next season.

I forgot he played for us in the cup, so it was definitely the right decision to recall him early and try and get him up to speed.

Easy in hindsight to say, but it shows how unwise it is to play someone in a cup game before the August transfer window closes if you are at all likely to loan them out. If the loan doesn’t work out and they aren’t good enough to figure in the second half of the season for the parent club, then the player is kicking his heels for half a season. Seems Wood could have the worst of all worlds. Hopefully Wilder will see enough there to be able to use him over the next few months.
Perhaps the rule needs changing to make it 2 clubs only from the date of closure of the August transfer window. This would allow clubs to assess players early on, but still allow players to play all season through a couple of loan deals

I'd prefer to be starting Wood than Peltier when he's available, I don't think we will be achieving much this season its a bit of a free hit so getting an incredibly promising player some game time should be the priority.

I hate these weeks without a midweek game when we look like a team with new energy and ideas. 

Think of all the wonderful things he's installing on the training pitch though!

Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.

    • But if they didn't have a good enough squad to best ours and anywhere near as much investment as we had, why were we even so close to them at all so that they could beat us by a single point? By the end of the season there was only 1 point in it, Waghorn earned them 12, so what? My point is it shouldn't have even got to that stage. We should have been comfortably in the play-offs if not challenging for further beyond that. We finished a whole 16 points off 2nd place, we weren't even close to challenging for automatics by the end of it but our club at that stage should have been right up there. There is so much that we did wrong to end up where we did in those 2 years that it feels in some way a justified finish, to me. My personal feelings coming out of that season were that we finished where we deserved to. Knowing that Derby finished above us and that they cheated doesn't make me revisit that season and think any different because I'm significantly more bothered about what we do over the course of a 46 game season than any other club, cheating or not. It's not like they filled their squad with supremely talented players, they got Martyn Waghorn ahead of us and we were annoyed about that, that says more about our ***-poor recruitment, to me.
    • Agree that we need to get back to dominating teams but boy it is exciting waiting for  team sheets and subs announced am sure we are going to start clicking very soon. Those SU posters were spot on and Boro will be watched by others much more than before 
    • I agree but I also feel it's hard to justify moving him around when he's playing his role to near perfection. Payero has to come in and show us that we're missing out without him in the side to justify any change to the way Crooks plays.  Not that he'll see it but my apologies to our favourite palm tree for ever thinking he was just going to be a big lump shithouse. He's the 7m midfielder we paid Millwall for.
    • I think Crooks said he sees himself as a DM
    • I appreciate what point you’re making, but how does that detract away from his poor record in front of goal? I really want it to work out for him, because it will ultimately benefit our club.   Regarding the coaching point, surely you’d still have the fundamentals of a footballer and their technical ability so it wouldn’t matter what system they’re being used in. He was clean through on goal during Warnock, Woodgate and Pulis and has never been a consistent scorer in either. Is that bad tactics? Or is that composure?    I think where he looks better under Wilder is being taken away from that role, so he’s ticking things over rather than being asked to create and score more.    The early signs are positive for him in Wilders system, and I think he will benefit for sure.
