I said it was clearly bad and fake haha I just wondered why people think its a good idea to post crap like that.

I would be interested as to when the players are told of new signings. I would also imagine a player could get themselves in trouble for revealing a signing before it is official given how it could compromise a deal.

I doubt players would get told of any incomings until confirmed.. They might hear bits and bobs, but why would the club keep them up to date with transfer gossip?

So people see a text from some random person who can't even spell a players name right and people believe it?

 

Makes you wonder.

I doubt anyone actually believes it, but that shouldn't stop anyone discussion potential targets.

True, I always love seeing the wild and wonderful names we are linked with at times and admittedly I'm not much of a Twitter user so I don't know the reaction to this particular tweet, it's just crazy that there are people who might get sucked in by it.

People believe what they want to believe. If it's a positive tweet, like a new big name signing for us, people will want to think it's true.

 

Conversely, if it was a tweet saying we were selling Ayala and Friend to Leeds for half a mill, people would be a lot quicker to doubt it, because they wouldn't want it to be true.

That could be legit, Leadbitter is a Mackem, it's hard to type when you've got 4 fingers on one hand and 7 on the other.

Middlesbrough are now into 5/4 from 5/1 to sign Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes.

Not that it means anything but the plot thickens, or it could all be a smokescreen for he who shall not be named ;)

Us being comfortably sat at the top of the table will make bids on condition of promotion look far more appealing to other clubs. Blackburn were nearly tempted before so maybe if Lambert doesn't rate him then a deal could be tied up pretty quickly. I'd much rather have Bamford though.

 

Carayol and Wildschut will raise far more money than was speculated earlier. Wildschut has proven that he is a very good player at League 1 level and many Championship clubs will think he can make the step up Just 18 months ago we thought he was good enough to succeed in the Championship. Yes he's technically poor but wingers with his pace and power are in very short supply so will have plenty of interest. A structured deal from Wigan with a promotion fee will be a decent sized deal. Competition from Championship clubs will only drive his price up. Carayol's lack of drive to track back is massively holding his career back. Getting the boot from Huddersfield could turn out to be a blessing in disguise for him as the dent to his pride might make him realise that he has to do the hard graft out of possession otherwise the manager will soon get rid of him. Another Championship club will snap him on up on loan. He's got promise but he needs to do the basics better if he's going to succeed in the Championship.

 

I'm certain that these two players are not going to bring in more than 600k combined. We have no use for them and other clubs know that.

It's because of all the nutters that have stuck money on it after that tweet :) don't think a lot of money has to be put on for odds to change on a championship transfer.

 

Tomorrow friend and Ayala will be even odds to join Leeds.

You say that Borodane but then I remember we sold Bennett for like 4 mil and got Friend for 100k. We also got ridiculous sums of money for Emnes and Juke. :D

I wonder what is the most unlikely but most believable transfer rumour out there? :D

    • Two scoring draws last term between the teams and always a close call before that. Forest you would expect to shrug off their poorish start and to progress, but they will also be desperate to start winning. However I would suspect Houghton will be content with a point at the Riverside but for Boro we need to start winning back to back games and I believe we will be too much for Forest and achieve a rare event of late. Maybe travelling teams will be showing a bit more respect towards us as a whole but I do think the game will be very different than seen against Coventry. Going for a home win though at start of season would have been ok with a draw  
    • Forest have so many attacking options, IF we win this it'll set a great marker for where we are heading.
    • I can see Spence dropping to the bench and one of bola or Johnson stepping in, with tav on the right. I assume that was the purpose of the subs the other night. roberts back to the bench as well perhaps.... if no akpom, I’m comfortable with Browne starting, he has done everything asked of him so far. Midfield and defence picks itself, barring injury 
    • So I've seen lots of highlights recently where both penalties and red cards were given, I thought they'd moved away from red cards if it was a penalty, or is it still a red card for being last man?
    • Hopefully Akpom is fit and if he is I would go to a 3.5.2. I would also bring Coulson in. I want him to succeed here and NW said he looked bright in training. Betti Dijk Fry Paddy Tav Howson Morsy Sav Coulson Britt Akpom I would love a win but i rate forest. Would not be too disappointed with a draw.
