“I'm smiling down the phone and saying 'Okay, but I don't think Middlesbrough will let me go'.”

I though pulis forced bamford out.

Bamford was obviously very happy to leave. Getting 10 million for him was good business imho.

I just don't understand how it could be the case. If they'd got so wankered on a Thursday that they had to call off a game on the Saturday I think Gibson would've sacked Robson on the spot. Gibson/Lamb first contacted the FA at 10am on the Friday before the game was due to be played on the Saturday, I don't see why with this amount of notice the club doctors/medical team couldn't have had any hung over players on saline drips to re-hydrate them long before kick off.

Fair enough, probably rubbish then.

Pretty funny that they fed him the line about wanting him to be their main striker. Also laughing at the fact they thought they'd taken away our best player.

But, no sour grapes from me. I'm indifferent towards Orta anyway.

Orta who. I liked Bamford and better used would have made a bigger difference but as in football players come and go and the club moves on.

What else is interesting is Leeds decided bamford was there number target so Orta called bamford to see if he would be interested in a move.

Isn’t that tapping a player up?

Just thinking about the amount of players we’ve had in last couple of seasons deemed not good enough by either the manager or the fans who are now regulars in teams doing much much better than us. Besic playing for Sheff Utd tonight, Harrison, Foreshaw, Bamford all in the starting 11 for Leeds most weeks. Fredericks a regular for West Ham. How do we keep getting it so wrong? 

Even Orta who many supporters blamed for our PL failure is an integral part of the Leeds set up.

Sometimes players can suit one team, style or manager and not another. Sometimes players gel well with other players better. 

Saying that though, I can't think of too many players who have come here and made their previous clubs scratch their heads. Maybe Besic the first time, Gaston and Bamford in his last couple of months with us?

You know when we signed Harrison on loan I thought we had him on a 18 months loan deal so understood why Pulis never played him as was allowing him to settle but then summer came around and he was off what a waste of a half season wage and probable loan fee

Apparantly there are only 12 people living in Benin and the former player/coach is now just coach, so they have called upon Big Rudy!

    • Issue is that someone on this forum is very very well connected with the club and I don't think it's fair when someone posts complete lies which puts the club in a negative light.  Yes, we all get information wrong and I recognise that and understand that but I don't think it's fair that fans are mislead into believing posts which are made up. I know the poster who is very well connected to the club and I am sure the admins will be confirm this. I have always been happy to reveal where I get my information from and take the criticism when it's wrong which it has been, but I am sure if he revealed his source then you would understand why people get annoyed.
    • Have to agree RB. There are no positives whatsoever in relegation. None
    • There are no positives, if we do get relegated we would get rid of the high earners but we would be offered a lot less for the players than their market value, beggars can't be choosers. Season ticket prices would have to fall, but fans may start to think the chairman  has pulled their pants down once to often so I  see a fan backlash. I think it would be a complete financial disaster, and who honestly would want to invest financially into a club where the owner has shown how incompetent he is  time and time again. We would struggle to come back up we should be a lot better than this, its criminal that we have to talk about it but its a possibility..
    • If you get it right in League One by creating a winning mentality and smashing the league it creates a certain environment and positive feeling around the club. Look at modern day Leicester, Norwich, Bournemouth and how the foundations built in League One propelled them up the leagues. Personally based on the current structure of the club and the decisions of the last 5 years relegation for us would be an absolute disaster as the gap between Championship and Premier League grows. You get it wrong and you end up like Sunderland, Blackpool, Ipswich or a Portsmouth destined to remain a lower league club without significant investment
    • Middlesbrough vs QPR (H) The year is 2012, the headlines read:   "Queens Park Rangers have sacked manager Neil Warnock after a run of eight Premier League games without a win. The 63-year-old took charge at Loftus Road in March 2010 and led Rangers to promotion last season, but leaves with them lying 17th in the top flight."   Neil is left to stew in a fit of rage: after catapulting QPR into the Premier League, he's been sacked halfway through the next season before he could even recover from his new years hangover! He begins plotting his elaborate revenge, after 8 years and 6 (largely irrelevant) jobs later he finally has the chance to prove himself by keeping a relegation threatened team in the league, whilst doing it against the team that didn't believe he had that survival instinct in him. This is the story of Neil Warnock's redemption!   Matchday Information Sunday 2pm brings us a do or die clash as Warnock’s Boro failed to keep some momentum going against fellow basement dwellers Hull, the hiring of Warnock has failed to arrest the slump in matchday ticket sales as the attendance is staying steady around the 0 mark. We have home advantage for this, if that still makes a difference… After being excited about football starting again, I am now equally excited for football to be finished again. With QPR having nothing to play for - losing all 3 of their fixtures since the return - can we take advantage of their bad form and seemingly indifferent performances? The good news is that at this end of the table one positive result will give us a massive amount of breathing room.   The Reverse Fixture Earlier on in the season – We played to a 2-2 draw in a period of 10 games without a win. We’ll all be hoping that the Hull game isn't the start of a similar run of results. There’s only so many teams left who can let us off the hook by going into administration.   Injuries Both sides have a clean bill of health for this one.   View from the Opposition https://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/queensparkrangers/forum/260261/middlesbrough-sunday/#27   Questions Score predictions for this one? Lineups for the game? Will Warnock keep us safe? Will he be here next year if he does? Do we even deserve to stay up if we rely on other teams being handed points deductions? Do you prefer to have your Saturday ruined or your Sunday ruined?
