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 don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
