Has anyone got anything on this De Roon guy?

 

I must admit I literally know nothing. Is he potentially worth 12m Euros? Is he a like for like Clayton/Leadbitter?

 

I'm personally hoping we see more of De Sart this season, so bringing another midfielder to compete with those three and Forshaw seems a bit excessive?

I think the Rhodes debate certainly is interesting. Personally I definately think he needs a chance next season, and not just a few appearances in August. He has an exceptional record in the English leagues and that warrants a shot at the Prem. Personally I think it's a case of people wanting something new and expensive rather than appreciating what we have already. If we signed someone from Belgium or Holland tomorrow with that record there would be endless creaming on here.

 

It's interesting and very relevant if that newspaper article is correct.  We're talking about selling a player we just signed who also happens to the second most expensive signing in our history or possibly the first if all the add ons are taken into account.

 

If his record was in the Dutch and Belgian second divisions would people feel the same way though?

I think Forshaw may be sold.  I'd be surprised if de Sart got a lot of game time unless he's doing great things in training I guess.

All I know is he won player of the season last season. I don't think de Sart is ready for the first team and that's why we seen so little of him last season, I personally think Forshaw will be off. We definitely need another midfielder in my opinion.

I don't think anyone would be happy if we brought in someone from the Belgian or Dutch second division. The Championship is more or less of the same quality as their top leagues barring a few teams, so I'd rather compare Rhodes record to those strikers in the top leagues of said countries. If we brought in someone who had scores 20+ goals in the last 4-5 seasons in either of those leagues I'd hazard a guess and say people would say we are showing ambition, we've made a real coup etc. On paper Rhodes should be good enough but It's impossible to say if he can carry that goalscoring ability into the Prem. Only time will tell and that's why he should at least be given a chance.

 

If people are not ready to give a guy with Rhodes' credentials a chance, then as a newly promoted team, I struggle to think who they think we can actually attract.

I don't think I'd be quite so quick to write off De Sart, when we signed him I saw a lot of Belgians singing his praises saying he's destined for great things. A loan to the Championship wouldn't necessarily surprise me, but I get a little bit of a feeling he may be coming in as an understudy to Leadbitter (or Clayton) and might get more chances this season. Just a hunch.

 

Forshaw I agree with you though. It's so unfortunate for him as he's a decent player, maybe technically better than Leadbitter, but he won't get game time this year I don't think. Maybe he'll be happy sitting on the bench for a Premier League team hoping for a chance again, but I doubt it tbh.

Maybe we are reserving some of the money for January?

 

No point blowing it all away in August. January will give the current squad the chance to improve and test themselves. If it's not working, change your approach in January.

What sort of fee would we get for Forshaw? He hasn't exactly done enough here to justify even what we paid for him

Can't see Forshaw staying either. There is about 10+ games less next season, so his chances are only going to be less, and even more so if we bring in someone else to add competition to Leadbitter/Clayton.

 

I'd like us to test the waters at derby and offer him as a part exchange for Hughes or at Leeds for Alex Mowatt who also looks like a great talent. In a straight transfer I reckon we could recoup 2 million or more.

***nal RB Callum Chambers is available for loan and attracting interest from a number of clubs. Think we are one of them????

The problem with trying to sell Rhodes wouldn't be just trying to recoup the majority of our transfer fee back, but also would other clubs be willing to match Rhodes wages, personally I don't think so.

 

I also feel Forshaw will be off, someone will get a good footballer and If he does go I hope he does well.

Marten de roon

 

 

Looks like he can read the game pretty well and eases players off the ball rather than diving around, doesn't show much of his passing range like.

De Roon would cost between €12-15m with Atalanta looking to sell.

 

http://www.gazzettaworld.com/news/transfer-market/atalanta-de-roon-middlesbrough/

 

they paid 1.5m Euros for him last year - no way we'd pay more than 5m

 

Maybe he has some sort of release clause in his contract? I read somewhere that Napoli have first refusal on him, I don't know why.

 

Because Italy is a complete *** show of agreements between clubs

    • I looked on Windows website and it gave me an iso file to download, I just assumed it would work off a flash drive haha
    • What do you mean by you installed the Win8 iso onto a flash drive? The iso is meant to be burned to a DVD-rom.  It should be an executable file for a flash drive.
    • In no particular order:   Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood!  
    • Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB.   I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now 
    • God, I couldn't even pick just three.  Lots to choose from over the years, including some of the great choices selected above 👍 Hendrie's two against Luton, bye bye Ayresome but hello Premier League and The Riverside.  Ravanelli at Wembley 96/97, it looked like we were going to do it finally but then we didn't.  Festa, a whole week later, at Old Trafford against Chesterfield, when it looked like we'd avoided an absolute catastrophe only for history to repeat itself.  Rav's last minute penna winner against Villa at the beginning of the week of destiny.  The whole first 5 mins of the Liverpool League Cup semi final in 97/98.  The first few minutes of the second half against Oxford in the same season.  Festa's last minute equaliser at Southampton when we were down to 9 men for a 3-3 draw in the 98/99 season and Brian Deane's goal to put us 3-0 up at Man Utd a few weeks later - I think that was the last game Man Utd lost that season before winning the treble - "We're gonna win the league", well maybe not.  Boksic twice up at St James park against the Geordies a couple of seasons later.  01/02 season against Man Utd in the cup, hardly any bugger there because there was some argument about the ticket pricing and the fact that it was a lunchtime kick off on the telly, two goals in the last 5 mins to win it, hurrah!  We had some good times against Man Utd back then for whatever reason.  Speaking of which, the following season at home against them on Boxing day, all three goals were decent but the Job one at the end to clinch it because of the second or two it took for Maccarone to head the ball across to him was nice.  Same sort of reason but earlier in that season, against the Mackems at home and Nemeths second goal (our third) when he kind of ran through on his own to score in front of the North Stand - I think it was just the sense of anticipation really. 03/04 season in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.  The first 6 or 7 mins as a whole but I was partly hysterical throughout the entire game really when I think about it.  It was ours to lose after that start and unfortunately we seemed to experts in finding ways to do just that up until that point.  Same season, scoring twice in injury time maybe to get a 3-3 draw at home against Leicester and another win at Old Trafford, Juninho scoring twice with his head! and Job getting the winner after Man Utd came back to level.  How did Man Utd win so much back then when we used to give them a going over on a regular basis?  Weird, football, isn't it?  04/05 season, not a goal but Schwarzer saving that penalty at Man City in injury time on the last day of the season to get us into Europe again has to be right up there.  The following season has to be the European goals already mentioned above, the games as a whole were mental but scoring late on to win not just once but twice is about as crazy as it gets.  Humping Man Utd (again) and Chelsea was also a lot of fun. After that point things got darker and those amazing moments never seemed to come around, at least not for me anyway.  There were always odd games or whatever but we were in decline and you could feel it.  We had some good games under Mowbray and obviously we were in the hunt a couple of times during seasons but we always fell away.  I think you're probably waiting until the 14/15 season for some more great moments - Leadbitter's freekick at Huddersfield was fantastic, Bamford's goal at Derby and the own goal at Norwich, the play off games against Brentford.  I stopped going away from home by this point though so most of those weren't experienced in the same way, the home play off game of course was though.  Following season, both games against Brighton had goals which got me going and against Derby over Xmas with the two goals in two minutes.  Nugent against Hull and Forshaw against Reading, mental. Probably loads I've missed out as well.  I think I just enjoy us scoring goals in any circumstances 😀
