AK has mentioned him personally on separate occasions. He coached him in the Spanish u23's didn't he?

 

Yes, he's mentioned how good a relationship they have and that he's a great player. It's not beyond the realms of possibility.

AK confirms De Roon is expected to return within a week or two so he could feature at West Brom, if not, definitely vs Palace. Good news.

 

Great news. I was worried when he went down as it looked as though he could've done more than just tweaked it a bit.

That's good news hammy's are always a dodgy one.

I can only dream that with Everton being in for another winger, there's a chance Deulofue is available...

 

He's one of their key players and we wouldn't be able to afford him anyway, plus he'll have bigger aspirations than Boro

 

How could anyone have bigger aspirations than to play for Boro, it is just not possible :D

We've been linked with Grenier a few times over the past couple of months. As with all these CM rumours leaking out now I think they were players we were looking at before we signed De Roon. Don't think we're in the market for another, personally.

I thought he was more a number 10/Attacking midfielder?

Yep, No 10 and right wing. At least he is according to Wikipaedia for what it's worth.

 

I was using Transfermarkt, which is much more reputable. Admittedly though I wasn't looking very close and he plays about mostly as a conventional CM and sometimes as a CAM. Sounds a bit like Forshaw to me, still not what we need. Definitely not a winger anyway (played one game at LW three seasons ago).

    • I actually think he’s improved significantly since he was dropped for that one game a while back. 
    • It’s not necessarily criticism (the way I see him), it’s more frustration. He has everything to be one of the best players in the league. He just needs to improve his end product. Personally think he should be getting double figures for goals and assists every season with relative ease with the ability he has. It’s great that he’s a threat and getting in shooting positions, but unless he actually improves his end product it’s not really helping the team. Just think he could really reach that next level with a bit of composure. Saying that, if he did improve his composure, he’d be a premier league player - quite easily.
    • No not quite I’m more the posh south Dublin accent 😃 but agreed, definitely wouldn’t say it to her face 😂
    • I think for like the final 35 minutes of the first half we were really good. Second half we tailed off a little bit, especially after we changed shape again and went back to the 3 at the back. Was speaking to a Barnsley fan on reddit about this and apparently this is a huge problem for them. Their manager refuses to adapt or make any changes to a style that clearly isn't working, they create barely anything and leak goals due to their high line. Because he spent like 70%+ at RB, where he was actually pretty good. Think he struggled during his time in CM, yet again. Whether it's at RB he can see the whole game in front of him or what but he definitely looked far more comfortable there.  Wait, really? For me, Crooks was far and away the best player on the pitch! He was absolutely top notch last night I thought.
    • After writing my original comment about terrible shooting accuracy I watched highlights of MU and Atalanta. Rashford first three shots were as bad and off target as most of ours. Fourth one was a beauty  though and scored. So perhaps the overall point is that most players/teams need to have  at least 10 or 12 attempts to score a couple of goals. (Ronaldo on the other hand had four attempts and four on target  - still “only” one goal though!
