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.

    • This says it all to me.. "Steve knows what the situation is. He’s not daft. He has been in football a long time. He knows the crack.” What the absolute hell is this club?  It's like he's some lad from down the club who's having a go at running the Boro.  Oh hang on.. Club is knackered boys and girls..  it's just a load of lads having a lovely time.
    • I don't have a huge problem with a player being dropped for acting like a *** behind the scenes so in that sense I'm ambivalent about it as I think he deserves to be in the side but if you're a *** then tough luck.  Where I would have a problem is if his poor behaviour is directly linked to being dropped undeservedly in the first place then I might have a little sympathy with him.  If that is the case then it would feel like a manager trying to exert control on the group by singling out an easy target - a young lad who hasn't played much and by all accounts is a bit of a loner and probably isn't right at the heart of the group in a social sense.  I would also have a slight issue with us signing a bloke who has spent his career doing the same and worse and then making an example out of Spence.  It feels a bit like we're sending mixed messages there.  The argument that he did it before he signed here doesn't wash with me, you're still signing a player with a history of the same thing.
    • Well in that case: Woody we don't hate you. You're just not competent enough to guide us out of this relegation battle. Please resign.
    • Forest can't break down teams who sit back and let Forest attack. It's happened to them so many times this season and that's how we should aim to play, on the counter attack. Maybe we'll somehow fluke a draw or a win cause Forest have been a bit of a charity to *** teams this season. But let's be honest, we've got Woodgate in charge so it'll most likely be a 1-0 loss.
