From what the Echo are saying it's pretty much a done deal

I know nothing about the lad, but is he a likely squad player or somebody to slot into our development team for us to look at?

It's really hard to gauge players from that level or lower, Jed Wallace was a superstar in that league and didn't cut it at all in the championship, Vardy was good in a lower league and next thing you know he's scoring 20+ for the premier league champions. My guess would be that he'd initially go into the u23's but if he impresses then he'll become a squad player pretty quick.

Didn't you try to start the January thread in the middle of September?   ;)

 

Besides, I don't think it is. We know where we'll be playing our football next season, we have a decent idea of who is going to be leaving, and we look like we're on the verge of making a signing.

Flaming heck, Jed Wallace; I was banging on about him when at Pompey, his career has crashed at Wolves (is he even there!)

I don't know if this is a worthwhile suggestion or not but I was thinking it might be useful to have another transfer thread with just the actual deals we end up doing? Sort of like a concise transfer thread really.

I have seen this lad twice this year and if this is the standard we are looking at my heart sinks. Mark Yeates mk2.

A sticky would be good that only the author or mods can edit to update ins and outs

I don't think he's being signed for the first team, more of an Adam Reach signing in my mind.

    • Adomah, Grant and Stuani would make a difference. Tuncay looked the part but as a club I felt we never really benefited from him to his maximum potential. The little fella is an obvious but he would be clogged to death in the Championship so Merse would be a better option. Traore was fast and exciting but that was it, he reminded me of one of those Burlesque dancers, plenty of teasing but nothing to show for it despite all those twirling tassels and mesmerization.
    • The Evening Gazette will surely report on the story soon. It’ll be another opportunity to reiterate for the hundredth time that no one wants to buy us and how we should be eternally happy to have Steve Gibson in charge of us. After all, it has been a good few weeks since their tongue was that deep in there.
    • I’m going to be cheeky and suggest a player from each manager in my recent time.   McClaren era = Gareth Southgate - a leader and a rock at the back. Mr dependable. Southgate era =  toss up between Johnson or Woodgate, but I’d have to say Woodgate for the same as Southgate. Oozed class and as much as I can’t stand him from his stint as manager. I can’t take away his defending quality. Special mention to Johnson for his natural width and quality at this level. Strachan era = Barry Robson. Hard working and always put a shift in. Not dripping with quality but the best of a horrendous recruitment period. Seriously, go back and have a look at some of the names...if you dare. Mowbray era = tough between grant or George. Both got at great prices and both did terrific work over their time with boro. Maybe Leadbitter shades it for his leadership ability which I feel friend lacked this season. Karanka era = Clayton in his prime. Played the holding midfield role to a t. Always felt like he had more to offer going forward but his responsibility reduced his impact further up. But I’d still say a Clayton in his prime with us is streets ahead of what we had this season.    Monk era = Braithwaite. I’m coming round to the idea that Pulis painted him out to be a bit of a snake and it’s not actually true. Sure he could have worked harder and fought for the shirt a bit more, but playing Pulis ball didn’t suit him and rightly so, he called him out on it. He had good quality though and how a team of Braithwaite, Bamford and Britt didn’t get us promoted is criminal.    Pulis era = Traore. When it was good, wow it was amazing. I’ve never seen a player as explosive and good at dribbling than him at boro. And we never will either. I also love how he grew under Pulis and was a player who you really wanted it to click for.     
    • I'm with Wilson, I'm a tuncay stan. I think if I had to pick someone who would make the most DIFFERENCE right now though...hmm, that's tough, especially if you can't pick TLF.  Gaston would bring creativity that we need. Traore is always a good answer too... And I can't believe I'm saying this because I mocked him for being nothing more than a shouty man, but we need Grant Leadbitter and his shouty man attitude right now too.
