If that's true about Braithwaite what a stupid decision, £9 mill up the spout unbelievable.

 

It's not the worst decision to take now. If he's not part of our plans going forward then he's better off somewhere else, hopefully accruing value.

 

If it means Younousse Sankhare coming in the other direction, I'm all for it.

Looks like Braithwaite is off to Bordeaux on loan.

 

Bloody hell, more money wasted.  It's like we go out of our way to do it.

Nottingham Forest and Cardiff are in talks over a swap deal involving Jamie Ward and Lee Tomlin. #nffc #CardiffCity #DeadlineDay

 

Isn’t Karanka supposed to have fallen out with Tomlin?

 

Yes. Tomlin was boasting about Bournemouth being interested so Kranky sent him home with a 'stomach bug' then he left. Being reunited would be interesting if true.

My take on this is that the mistake was buying in the first place, not what we do with Braithwaite now. He's not a bad player, it was just bad management/planning with our incoherent buying strategy.

 

Hopefully Pulis will kick the club into shape.

Have you seen Younousse Sankhare play a lot then?  What's he like and where does he play?

 

The papers say left side, either wing or left-back, but someone earlier in the threads said they'd looked at his stats and he hasn't played on the left at all.

If like you say we get someone coming the other way fair enough, if not its an awful deal, we're getting nowt out of it.

I wonder if it's true that we told Braithwaite that he'd be played as a striker, the stories seem to give the idea that he was under the impression that would be the case which is why he's unsettled because he hasn't played as one.

 

I like him, I think he has a lot of talent, I'm sad if it doesn't work out for him here :(

He plays centre midfield from what I've seen of him at Lille/Bordeaux. Strong and a lot more mobile than Leadbitter/Clayton.

    • Yes I would agree with this if mid table like a month ago but as now we are heading league one we have to cut losses sack Woodgate get a Warnock in to keep us in the Championship. As if we get league one football it's a very long way back!
    • I enjoyed the game tonight tbh, despite it being freezing. I thought we went toe to toe with Leeds for the most part and could have quite easily nicked a goal or maybe even two on a different night. I'm not ready to completely write Woodgate off just yet - I think until he's had a proper chance to balance the squad to his liking over the summer & also get rid of all the various high earners (who've been pretty uninspired for several managers over several years now), it's kinda difficult to judge the poor bugger. He's clearly not doing a fantastic job, but I think a lot of managers would have struggled with us this season - espescially given the task of relying on youth and completely overhauling the playing style, but with pretty much the same core group.. All the young players will be a season better next year and hopefully the same will go for Woodgate. Assuming we make some positive moves/changes to the squad over the summer, we can start to build from there. Although I appreciate that it's fashionable to be negative on this forum, so with that said; Woodgate out!
    • The Forrest games on Monday this gives the club a long weekend of double training sessions. As honestly Gibson needs to say Woodgate will you resign if he doesn't sack him then get a Warnock in who be here 9am this morning getting them players drilled for 4 days. I reckon if this happened by Monday night the Boro will be transformed and may beat Forrest. But nope this won't happen the players will laze around for 4 days doing pre season like drills then stuffer another L on Sky. I don't actually think Boro have won a game live on Sky this year
    • Don't really want to see George  playing for us anymore, he has lost it totally. Food for thought I do not imagine for one moment that Ben Gibson will be donning a Boro shirt if we do go down
    • 352 britt and fletcher up front, howson or spence rwb, tav in the middle where he was doing well.
