'Other Boro stuff'

Recommended Posts

We spent £1.4m this year, on agent fees alone, doing the following deals:

Dijksteel, Bola, Browne, Stojanovic, Mejias, Burrell, Jones, Folarin - permanent signings

Roberts, Nmecha, Morrison, Moukoudi - loan signings

Fry, Coulson, Tavernier, Wood, Liddle, Sykes - updating existing contracts, or signing new ones in the case of Wood and Sykes.

Randolph's sale.

Money well spent eh?  I'm trying to work out where that money has gone exactly.  The inclusion of Randolph in the Boro section suggests that we paid an agents fee for his sale, which was nice of us if that's the case, but I can't be sure if that's right or not.  It could just be how it's been input.

The previous year the figure was £2.6m, while we were doing that belt tightening thing under Pulis.  Interestingly, despite Monk and his agent apparently trying to scam our brains out, the figure was actually lower than that under him at only £2.5m.  The Premier League season was a touch lower still at £2.4m and the promotion season was a paltry £340k.

It'd be great if you could see a full breakdown of it all, including the specific amounts for each transaction.

 

Where are you getting those figures CT? 

Could you send me a link please?

Any thoughts SDS on the current situation regarding Warnock? Will he be here next season? 

Might be, pretty sure he will be but maybe not as manager.

Good chance, alot depends on us staying up but dont be surprised if he is here next year in background.  Looks like a massive change of direction next year throughout whole club top too bottom. All depends on survival though

Sounds just like what’s needed. I think we have a far better chance of survival now than we did on Woodgate”s watch so hopefully exciting times are ahead 👍

We just had a massive change in direction last summer.  Turns out it was more of a downward one than anything else.

Cheers @Islander and @Changing Times missed the Gazette article this morning Gazette. Was wondering what I missed in this thread to prompt CT's post! 

Hope you're both keeping alright?

I'm good thanks mate.  Yourself?

I was just reading through that stuff and thought some of it was interesting so I popped it on here.  I can't quite believe what we've spent this past year given the business we've done.  Football is mental.

Nice to see Warnock sees we have no leaders...all of us have seen this.. we dont have a true captain..  4-4-2 tomorrow. Britt Rudy up top I'm thinking.

Always time for the arrival of Captain Hindsight!

Another massive change in direction from top to bottom. Didn’t we have that with Karanka? Then Pulis? Then Woodgate? Hopefully a DOF and time for it to work.

    • If I were a pessimist I'd say that 3 points are essential in this so I'd be predicting a 2-1 loss in typical Boro fashion... Although as a self proclaimed optimist I'll say a tough grindy 2-1 in our favour!
    • The thread title is probably my fault - as @Changing Times says, I'd posted a thread asking if it was time to abolish the FA. Maybe we need to keep that thread at the top of the board, so the correlation between that one and this is more obvious? Then again, apart from the title, nothing that's been said over the last four pages would come as a surprise to anyone at MFC. It's not like we're talking about chasing SG out of town with pitchforks, or hanging an effigy of him from the Transporter Bridge. Everyone knows what we achieved in the Noughties, but there's been one misstep after another for over a decade. That needs scrutinising, and our supine local press clearly isn't up to the job. Incidentally, since people in positions of authority apparently read this forum, I'd like to say hello to anyone at Red Bull who's reading this. Your drinks are excellent, and we would be delighted if you bought our club. Pleeeeease?
    • Considering we've had to play the top four sides, with a paper-thin squad and none of our transfer deadline day targets plus several injuries in key positions, I think we've started really well. Even the best managers need time to work their magic - Aitor tightened us up defensively almost straight away (as has Warnock), but it takes far longer to work on attacking flair, intuitive passing and clever set-pieces. Also, the team's confidence will be rising with every battling draw, sneaky win and clean sheet. I've seen mediocre teams on paper go on incredible runs because confidence is high and so winning becomes a habit. I wouldn't bet against us becoming one of the league's form teams as the season progresses, especially if we can sign a CB, LWB and CF in January.

    • Judged on who we have faced I think we have had a much better start than a lot of us would have said earlier.
