Why?

They'll get them in, or they won't, and it's not Woodgate's responsibility unless they choose not to come because of Boro's results.

I agree, not everyone is that rational though. He will get it in the neck regardless of his involvement, I can just see it now "we identified targets in August and still didn't sign them" ect

And if anything, that should come back to bite the people responsible. If we're that prepared for January (and given our intention to avoid spending a few weeks ago, you'd have to assume we are) then I think the expectations for January have gone up and indeed, that doesn't land on his shoulders. Though I also don't think Moose is far wrong in saying some will think it does.

If we get to January and we are muddling along in mid table, then they wont spend money. Only if we are in danger of going down will they bring players in. Its as easy as that!

I think the club might be more likely to spend if we're somehow in the upper echelons of the division come January. If they think play-offs are a reasonable goal and we look good against teams around us, we add one or two more and push for it. I also think that's the only reason they'll keep our best players.

    • At his age he might actually like a 2-3 day working week. But I'm fairly convinced that Warnock isn't the answer to our DoF prayers. If he is the one putting together our recruitment strategy he might as well also be manager.
    • D'oh! I meant £100,000,000 as a selling fee, but I forgot some of the zeroes. Mind you, I should be used to seeing lots of zeroes this season. Goals for, expected goals, marks out of ten...
    • I can't imagine Warnock behind the scenes. He's too steeped in the pitchside mentality and he loves training too much to put his feet up in a windowless office somewhere in the Riverside while someone else gets to shout at the defence. He'd end up telling the manager/coach they were crap (which they probably would be, knowing our recruitment) and then either him or the manager would have to leave 'by mutual consent'. Then all the long-term strategies we'd put in place would be tossed up in the air, and we'd have to start completely afresh. Actually, that sounds familiar... 
    • i assume you mean 100k a week cause Sancho is definitely worth more than £100,000 as a sale price 😛
    • The same world in which Jadon Sancho is worth over £100,000,000 and the same world which pays Mesut Ozil £270,000 a week to not give a rat's ass about Arsenal. A very, very wrong world.
