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

Recommended Posts

99% chance Steele will be gone by the deadline

 

Could well be saying his goodbyes at Rockliffe as we speak

 

Heres hoping. Ill be sad to see him go, but if hes not in the plans its essential to get his wages off the books.

Hope theres some kind of clause in the deal for Steele that allows us to recall him at some point if he impresses at blackburn and karanka is willing to give him a shot at competing for a new contract. Still convinced that he will have a good career, i think we made a mistake letting him slip of the radar tbh. We could be looking at big bids from premier league clubs now instead of a low key loan to blackburn with the club resigned to the fact that we will lose him on a free next year

Middlesbrough fans are crazy: 'Better than Falcao transfer'

 

Jelle Vossen plays since Monday afternoon officially the shirt of Middlesbrough. Fans of the English team respond overjoyed at the arrival of the ex-Genkie. "Better than the attackers ***nal," "The problem with Radamel Falcao is that he is not a Jelle Vossen," ... It's just a few of the comments that have appeared on social media. We selected the best:

 

That's mine

Pleasantly surprised we got the two deals done early and with minimal fuss.

 

Would be a shame to see steeley go, but if he's not playing and is on decent wages for a goalie...

Ok well that's the way I see it. You can choose to see it differently if you want.

 

No need to be so aggressive though. Have noticed it in several of your posts. It appears you have some kind of vendetta against me, which is fine I guess. But just because you disagree doesn't mean you're right. Sometimes you can express your own viewpoint, alternative or contradiction without turning it into an attack.

 

Anyway, regarding Liverpool. Yes it was a diamond at times. That's the point. It's interchangeable. Essentially it was 4-3-3 of sorts, but positionally it rotated, with Sterling in advanced positions when need be. Sterling could have got several goals that day. Ok, it's not really a case of three traditional centre forwards, but then some of our own strikers have been touted as capable supporting strikers too. Again, at times. Not exclusively. And I'm not saying it will work. Just that it might. And we might go down that road.

 

There was nothing aggressive about my post. You're talking nonsense in my opinion so I called it nonsense. Sterling isn't any kind of centre forward and Liverpool don't play in the way you suggested. I have absolutely no kind of vendetta against you. I barely look at who the poster is when I read something. I'm interested in what is being said, not who's saying it. I believe in your case I've disagreed with two things you've said recently, if it's more than that I can't remember. One was something to do with Tomlin and one is today. Hardly a vendetta is it?

 

Going back to your point, Sterling could have got several goals yesterday getting forward from midfield, not from playing up front. It's completely different to what you're talking about and you know it is. I have no idea whether it could work for us or not, I don't even know how Vossen plays yet because I've never seen him and I haven't seen that much of Bamford either really. I think it will be very interesting to see what exactly Karanka has in mind in terms of our shape etc. We've bought two wingers this summer so it would seem strange to then move to something that doesn't really use them. Clearly not all of the signings are going to be in the side at the same time however.

 

Certainly more then twice, but whatever.

 

And, no, it's not all that different. If you have a player who can be creative and score goals, then great. You don't have to chuck a 'midfield' or 'centre forward' tag on him. If in the three you can have one ever so slightly further up who can win headers, hold up the ball and play the others in (Kike) or one who can be creative to the other two (yet to be seen), then 3 up top works, regardless of the positional tag.

 

For me, Sterling is not just a midfielder.

 

You're right. We don't know that much about Vossen. But I've seen enough to see he has some creativity in him. And I know that he can play behind the two because he loves that supporting striker role. I know this because he is my brother-in-laws best friend. That last part may or may not be true.

Goal also understands that Middlesbrough are looking into the possibility of signing Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman to replace Steele.

    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.  
    • As far as I can tell it's the only argument that they can even try to make, and even that's weak AF.
