'Other Boro stuff'

Pulis on his time as Boro manager:

 

Raised £50m but how much of that did he waste on signings in positions we didn't need? How much did he get from the club personally as our highest paid manager, and a supposed cut of sales? Bonuses for hitting playoffs? How much did we miss out on by not even trying for promotion when we made said playoffs?

Talk of a tighter knit squad but only tighter in the sense that they all play in the middle of the park. Talk of trimming the squad but eliminating all the wide players and replacing them with more central players is not the way to go about it.

Half truths and PR spin. Would expect nothing less from that charlatan.

Coulson out for another 4-6 weeks.

Howson and Friend out for weeks yet too.

Ayala's fit and in contention.

That's a serious blow for Hayden ? Hope he comes back fit and firing on all cylinders and wins his spot back!

Nothing against him, but I'd not mind if he struggled to get his spot back.

It would mean Bola was actually playing well and was a solid signing.

For sure, and I think Woody has shown enough confidence in him that Bola will have to be playing really well to keep him out and I think from what I've seen of Coulson so far, it's justifiable.

The Times are reporting that Middlesbrough are going to sue the EFL over failing to enforce FFP properly with regards to stadium sales.

And what exactly are we suing them for? Sounds like Derby haven't broken any existing rules to achieve a higher position than us. To say they achieved 6th over us because of that £40m is also not just bull *** but we'll have a job proving that.

Even if we achieved 6th, so what? Will the EFL look back at last season and think 'well if they did finish 6th, they could have been in the Premier League now'? Surely not. Not one of our fans feels as aggrieved at our position as Gibson seems to be.

He's going on a sour rampage after wasting our money over the last 2 seasons on players who were not worth relatively what we paid for them and paying a manager a *** ton to do a job he was incapable of doing, who then came out to say achieving 7th was better than our previous league finish. The fact he's on this vendetta against everyone else seems to further prove he's not going to accept the mistakes he has made.

He'd do well to keep his gob shut and focus on winning back the support closer to home who are paying for cleaning up his mess. I've never seen so many fans question his running of the club to the point of wanting rid as I've seen this year, he should really acknowledge that before pointing fingers.

    • I disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
    • Played as a striker he was a immense. A proper poacher and could shoot from distance too.

    • and replace him with who? Ivan Toney at a higher price who is unproven in the championship? We can all see that Brit is not perfect but replacing him is much harder, especially when good strikers are the most saught after commodity for teams in any division
