Dutch Interview with Van La Parra about his transfer, put through google translate:

 

http://www.elfvoetbal.nl/Binnenland/274982/Interview-Rajiv-van-La-Parra-Wil-mensen-bij-Middlesbrough-blij-maken

 

In the 2016/17 successful season, during which Huddersfield Town won the Premier League via the Play-Offs promotion, he came to forty appearances. Last season, La Parra played 33 games at the highest level. But in the current year his series suddenly stopped at five matches in October. "The manager (David Wagner, ed.) Chose a different way of playing at that time. A system without outside players. From that moment on I fell outside the team ", says the 27-year-old left winger opposite ELF Voetbal.

 

SURPRISE

"The reason for me is a big question mark. It really came as a surprise. The trainer makes the decisions. As a player, you respect those choices. I then neatly indicated that I wanted to be rented to a club where I could go for minutes. Then everything went fast. Middlesbrough and Leeds United immediately reported to my agent. "

 

 

 

Leeds United is the leader of the Championship. Middlesbrough is in fifth place, a position that would mean placing for the Play-Offs at the end of the season. "Middlesbrough was something more concrete than Leeds. They did everything to get me in. I immediately got a good feeling about it. I also wanted to stay in England. I did not hear anything from the Premier League. But I actually like to fight for the prizes again. "

 

TO PROMOTE

The goal at Middlesbrough is clear. "Returning in the Premier League. The club is large, lives in the city and has many fanatical fans. I know that now, haha. I hope to make them happy. From the players I know two boys from Wolverhampton Wanderers, where I played with them: Danny Batth and George Saville. Yesterday (Thursday, ed.) I participated for the first time. Previously not allowed, because there was a risk that I would get injured and Huddersfield Town then did not give permission. "

 

Van La Parra will for the time being stay in Shipley, located fifteen to twenty minutes from Huddersfield. "It's an hour and twenty minutes to Middlesbrough. Unfortunately not via a highway, but it is to do. The club is busy arranging an apartment for me in the city. If I am tired or we have a late game, I can stay there. "

 

TERENCE KONGOLO

At the end of the season, the former player of Feyenoord and sc Heerenveen return in principle to Huddersfield Town. "We have not agreed an option to purchase. Unfortunately, I could no longer personally say goodbye to the boys. But at Huddersfield we have a group app with the players. In it I wanted everyone success and I got nice reactions. Only Terence (Kongolo, ed.) I still speak daily. He now plays weekly. In our new system we start with five defenders. Terence can go to bed, haha. "

 

Van La Parra was forced to watch television on New Year's Day against Derby County, because he was not yet eligible for play. "Saturday I can make my debut. Then we play for the cup (third round FA Cup, ed.) At home against Peterborough United FC (from League One, ed.). I am fit, but not yet matchfit. Of course, I did not play for three months. Hopefully I can make a debut on Saturday. I am going to work hard on the training sessions. I hope to entertain the public here. "

Interesting to see that Leeds were also interested. I assume he thinks he will get more game time with us.

Danish Interview with Braithwaite about his transfer - translated:

 

https://www.bold.dk/fodbold/nyheder/braithwaite-passede-ikke-ind-i-middlesbrough/

 

Braithwaite: Didn't fit into Middlesbrough

 

Middlesbrough's playing style did not suit Martin Braithwaite, and therefore he seized the opportunity as a switch to Leganes became possible.

 

Martin Braithwaite has switched Middlesbrough with a six-month lease in Leganes in Spain, and there are several reasons for this.

 

One of them is that the Danish national team attacker had difficulty adapting to the system that manager Tony Pulis practices.

 

- In Middlesbrough I couldn't unfold myself. You don't want to play the kind of soccer where I fit in. You would like to play more physically with long balls, which is probably not where I am the very best, he says to Ekstra Bladet.

 

- It made it more complicated to score goals. But at the same time, I'm also not a man of excuses. I always have to score goals. No matter what system I play in, Braithwaite says.

 

He also says that it was not planned that he should change now, but the opportunity arose, and now he looks forward to six months in an exciting project.

In the Inside Matchday for the Peterborough game, it looks like it's Britt doing a lot of talking in the pre game huddle - didn't really expect that if I'm honest.

Leadboots had said he was delighted Britt got his goals afterwards too. The players at the very least seem to like having him around.

He’s very well liked and is happy here. Literally the only reason he’d move on is Pulis at this moment in time.

I heard Britt just left the club housing and bought himself something in the area, that doesn't sound like someone wanting to leave.

I just watched the 'Inside Matchday' from the Peterbrough game. During the warm up when the players did their huddle, it was Britt doing the talking. Maybe his influence in the squad is bigger than people realise.

So, er, this is awkward, but that's exactly what got us talking about Britt in the first place, me pointing that out.

From snippets of players social media, Britt seems like a pretty big personality and popular player within the dressing room. Usually plays with a smile on his face too. Hope he's not swapped for Wickham tbh... seems kind of pointless

    • 1.       Did Sunday’s game make you wish you’d never got into football in the first place? No, but it was the lowest I've felt after a game for a long time, probably compounded by lockdown etc  2.       Since we lost the last game, should we be expecting to win this one? Yes, NW will have them firing and I think we'll see a performance similar to the Forest game. 3.       Can you name eleven fit Boro players and put them into some semblance of a formation? 3-4-3 Bettinelli Mcnair Wood Bola Spence Howson Saville Coulson Roberts Watmore Akpom 4.       If we could resign one Boro player from the last ten years, who would it be, and why? If we could resign someone at the same age/condition we signed them initially then i'd say Leadbitter. I think he'd thrive under Warnock and bring some much needed leadership. If it's someone who's still in the game then it would have to be Traore. 5.       Have you been in an accident in the last five years that wasn’t your fault? No.
    • 1. No, but it completely ruined the match for me and I'm still angry now. 2. It's a game we absolutely should be winning, but then so was Birmingham, Sheffield Wednesday etc... 3. Bit worried about Wood likely starting after his performance yesterday, but I expect he'll be better prepared this time. 4. Traore, he'd tear this league apart. 5. I actually don't think I have!
    • It seems most January windows end with Gibson having a call to make on what he wants to do. I hope we have a Jordon Rhodes/Ramirez week rather than  a Gestede week.
    • I think I will still be in shock and disbelief about the last game till after this game, regardless of whether we win or lose. 
    • 1: No, but I was close to vomiting. 2: Yes 3: Bets, Hows, Wood, McNair, Bola -- Morsy, Saville, Watmore, Roberts, Britt, Chuba 4: Bamford - He is what we need at the moment .. Someone who can finish and make it look clever at the same time. 5: No accidents
