DEADLINE DAY IS OVER! THE TRANSFER WINDOW HAS SHUT!

 

Who saw this coming? Be honest. Purely on the calibre of player that Boro brought in, what an incredible window this has been for the club so far!

 

The late rumours that never came to fruition:

 

  • The club are rumoured to have tabled a £20m bid for an player; who the player is or if this is even true is anyone's guess.
  • The future of Jordan Rhodes is still very much up in the air. Boro are believed to be willing to let the player go permanently only if a club matches their valuation; Norwich are rumoured to be interested. There have also been a number of loan bids tabled but this doesn't interest Boro. If the player is to leave, who, if anyone, would Boro bring in as a replacement? Nobody knows.
  • Thomas Mejias is being lined up by Getafe as a potential replacement if their current #1, Guaita, completes a move to Sunderland. 

Other Stories of the window:

  • One transfer that has perhaps been overlooked is that of Juanjo Vila, a world leading expert on video and data analysis in sport. His analysis and input could and should prove invaluable to AK.
  • Contract extensions have very much been the flavour of the window as well with Ayala, Gibson, Friend, Foreshaw and Fry all being given new long term deals of varying length!

Well, having just seen our first proper transfer link I thought I'd start this up.

 

Middlesbrough are watching Gent-striker Laurent Depoitre. His contract runs out in 2017, but no offers as yet. #boro

Oh this seems premature as so much will depend on the next few weeks both on and off the field.

 

That said boro fans might want to load football manager and have a butchers at Braga.

Haha I saw this and my first thought was "KM is gonna be ***!"

 

Yep same here. I think the moderators have a moral duty to delete this thread ;)

Tut tut, Will. What have you done!? :D

 

Agree this is slightly premature though I think there's argument that this time there is only a List A and not a List B this time round for players for next season. Aitor may not be able to have a List B next year. List B may well consist of potential new managers.

Moral duty to delete this thread?

 

If I do there will be moans and groans

 

If I don't there will moans and groans.

 

But on purely a personal level this is far too early for this type of thread and tbh not even worth thinking about until we know where we will be until all is finalised.

 

I could simply lock it or hope that Will might just simply delete it himself.

 

I also realise that KM will be desperate to start this type of thread but guys really this early?

 

Any one with a good suggestion about this please say so or those in favour of locking this for at least a while please indicate

It's a rumours thread though, if rumours are starting to circulate then why not have a thread to discuss them?

Surely anyone can start a thread about anything they want, isn't that the whole point of a forum?

 

Leave it be, personally I hate the transfer threads, but I recognise the poster's right to start one.

I don't think it's too early, the season ends next week and besides we're already being linked with players. Plus it'd be interesting to discuss who we might target depending on whether if we'll be playing Premier League football or not next season.

    • The problem I see is that we could still leave ourselves hanging if we want two and only sign one. It definitely feels like we could do with a couple of quality additions at the back. And if Gibson goes to the wire, we could leave ourselves in the lurch as our other targets, ones not just us are after, will move elsewhere. The lad from Leicester in particular seems like someone with a bright future and a decent career so far too, I'd be disappointed to see us miss out on signing him because we sign Simpson and we throw everything at getting Gibson and falter. I know some on here have switched off already for this season but I absolutely want to see us go for it so long as we can. I see very little point in switching off so long as we don't kill off our summer plans by doing so, let's finish as high as we possibly can and hey, even top 10 would be something after our start to this year. So yeah, I'm sceptical of Gibson signing without any cheap permanent by the end of it but by all means, get as much quality in as we can and give it a go.
    • D Blackburn  v  Q.P.R. H Brentford  v  N/Forest. (no scorer.) A Cardiff  v  W.B.A. H Hull Cty  v  Huddersfield. H Leeds  v  Millwall. A Luton  v  Derby. A Wigan  v  Sheff Wednesday. H Reading  v  Bristol City A Tranmere  v  Sunderland.. D Rotherham  v  Ipswich Twn.
    • I am not saying this because it seems the Gibson deal might be drifting away from us but I am quite relaxed about the whole situation. i think the reason for that is we seem to be eyeing some decent alternatives in Benkovic and Simpson who both come with a lot of promise. For once we not put all our eggs in one basket. I know club are looking at two CBs but if we get 1 of the above 3 in I will be happy with that. if we dont get either of the 3 then I will start to worry. Oh and i still got hopes our beloved boro will make a out the blue type signing for the top end of the pitch. Ideally more Lee Tomlin out the blue and less Adlene Guidioura out the blue.
    • Hey don't get uptight about it I was just pointing out to Smogzilla  a fact and how I see it. By the way there really is no effort in doing this, it just pass's some of my spare time and it keeps my brain active since I retired.  
    • The finances always had to be right for this deal to happen in this window and were a long way off from that happening from what I was told Thursday. What's the point in spending a million pound plus wages on a six month loan deal when we are not going to be either fighting relegation or fighting for the play offs. Deal could still happen yet but I expect us to push hard for permanent transfer in the summer. Ps whoever said Gibson had a medical over the weekend was talking utter cr@p
