Transfer Rumours, Summer 2014 "Didn't we do well!"

Recommended Posts

Wouldn't be surprised to see Luke Williams/Adam Reach released in the summer or sent out on loan again. It looks like we've got another batch of talented youngsters coming through so if the likes of Reach and Williams don't grab their chance they will be moved on to make way for other youngsters.

Well, it's tough.

 

I'm on the fence, part of me wants to bring in guys who can constantly challenge for first team time because competition is always good, and if a player goes into the season knowing he's first team choice he might not work as hard.

 

On the other hand, having a consistent back four does wonders for chemistry and often performance so maybe it IS better to have a definite starter and then just competent back up.

If a player is a focused professional, which I'd like to think Friend is, then we should be able to have faith in them to keep their standards up. His form under Mowbray is a concern though. Karanka has said he wanted a smaller squad so the likely impact of that will be us shedding some natural back up depth in order to have a higher quality first choice player. So we might well have to settle with some compromise like us having to rely on Gibson and Reach being the back up to Friend at LB.

What is the situation with young players for next season? Who are the names we might hope to start pushing through? Morris and Jones we know a bit about by now, but who else do we think might start making a claim?

Sky sports says that Kitching lad is getting a new contract so he might possibly be more involved next year too.

From the Gazette-

Aitor Karanka has changed his mind about the kind of players he wants to sign in the summer.

 

His initial intention on taking charge of Boro was to eventually bring in talented young Spaniards to strengthen the squad.

 

But now he recognises that the Championship will be too demanding for that kind of player and has turned his attention to other options.

 

Karl Henry and Ishmael Miller?

Nooo our spanish revolution is over before it even began :(

 

Does this mean we're going to fill our team with the same sort of boring player that hasn't worked so far?

 

More grant leadbitters and dean whiteheads wooooo

Matty Fryatt is out of contract in the summer.. he has proven very very good at this level. Likely to be alot of interest in him however!

 

Very good shout and could probably play as number 10 if needed.

He's a bit injury prone isn't he Callum Wilson? Struggling with injuries a lot this year? Not great at such a young age.

    • Sadly Boro are not just relying on Barnsley losing more games than them, Bournemouth and Cardiff have to as well. Full marks to die-hard fans for optimism  but it looks like 8th at best. And for all Warnock's complaints, it is 46 games that will give us our final position. I can still remember his rant about Tevez and Mascerano's suspicious appearance for West Ham which sent Sheff Utd down. Seemingly nothing to do with Sheff Utd were there because they had been crap all season. 
    • Probably where my confusion lies as i recall he got praise for one season. Either way he can leave as I feel he is preventing the progress of Brynn by being 2nd or 3rd choice here.
    • Congrats to Rangers on winning the Scottish Premiership I know it’s a Micky mouse competition and just shows how easy Celtic have had it for 10 years 
    • He did get it in the season before, in League One, but he imploded at the end of the Championship play-off push season.
    • His career nosedived with some howlers down at the Den. In fairness he seemed to be doing OK and even became the Millwall Player of the year once but then hit some really bad form, became a liability and was dropped and never really recovered. His positioning became very suspect as well as coordination and flapping. I'm guessing the harder he tried the worse he became. It's possible that he may rebuild his confidence and now would be a good time to do it without crowds breathing down his neck and without pressure because lets face it the Play Offs are all but gone. We may as well see if there is something still there or if he is still as bad as the end of his time at Millwall. The constant changing of clubs since and his inability to get a regular start at any of them would indicate that he hasn't convinced several other Coaches and Managers.  Dimi didn't exactly impress when he signed but the rest became history so I guess no harm in giving him a try, if he is worse then it becomes an easy decision in the summer regarding the pair of them. https://newsatden.co.uk/71877-jordan-archer-leaving-millwall-plus-news-of-other-released-and-retained-list/
