Summer 2016 Transfer window

Recommended Posts

With grants injury I don't think we'll move any cm on now. Also wouldn't be surprised if de sart is first choice by seasons end, he's supposed to be that good.

 

Im just looking at room in the squad if we keep 5 midfielders it probably means we cannot sign a winger. I dont see Karanka selling stuani either.

De Sart won't be moved on. There's a lot of positive murmurings about him of late.

Coentrao for the LB position? Out of favour at Madrid, knows Aitor well, sent out on loan last season.

 

Used to really rate him a few years back, if that's the player we got I'd be over the moon. I don't know why he's spectacularly fallen away at Real though.

this current squad is about as close as i can remember, if ramirez, subotic, negredo and barragan deals get done anyhow.

 

get these deals done consolidate in the league this season. next season will be the big one where we kick on for real.

 

Couple of fairly substantial 'Ifs' there though isn't there,

1) getting those deals over the line

2) getting them to gel and play well enough to allow to us to 'consolidate' our position.

3) And then actually kicking on next season (assuming it hasn't all gone tits up).

 

To be honest I think the above is the aim of just about every team that gets promoted, with the exception of burnely who seem to be satisfied with being average and buying averagely.

 

I'd probably say our European squad had better individuals (viduka, Southgate and errr parnaby) supplemented with some poorer players but this squad would have more quality distributed through the ranks

I think the De Pena will be the most difficult to move on but he is far from good enough for the 25

Question, how many of the new players have played in the AK formation before ?

I think that only really matters for the attacking players, midfielders play with a partner in many systems and a back 4 is a back 4 so the defenders will be fine I imagine

Reading want Reach on loan and have enquired. Such a tough one for me

On weather we keep or get rid. I think every player deserves a chance this pre season, De Pena included.

From who? I've literally only seen it on here?

There was a comment from one of the gazette lads the other day saying something along the lines of "We don't want to get too excited but there's whispers that we could have something very special on our hands with de Sart"

I think stuani could go if an offer comes in at a reasonable price karanka would be more than happy to sell to free space up in the final squad to bring in a new winger personally I think reach could do a job there this season.

    • I think its either Bettinelli's agent trying to rack up interest (which is his job in fairness)  or lazy journalism or more likely a combination of the two. Dimi had an incredible record here for clean sheets in a season but it was a similar story to now with the organisation of the defence resulting in the Keeper having little or nothing to do. No disrespect to Dimi but he was hardly the most athletic or agile Keeper I've ever seen in a Boro shirt, although no worse than the medal bedecked one who came in after him which proved how playing behind a good team can make a keeper look great. Most Keepers would do well behind the current Red barrier in front of them. Bettinelli's vocal skills does add to that sense of impenetrability probably as much if not more so than the actual amount of work he has to do keeping shots out. Decent keeper who I would prefer to stay but I would be more concerned about losing Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Bola, Friend, Howson etc.
    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
    • If you dont mind a short drive get yourself booked into Art La Vey up towards Newcastle. That guy is head and shoulders above most in Boro. Mark at Nothingsacred in Stockton is class if you're wanting some dotwork done
