Summer Transfer Window 2018.


Recommended Posts

Rumour going round that we're in for bakary sako.

 

Also Nixon reckons a load of clubs are after Wilson on loan, I'd imagine we're one of them

 

Don't blame us, I'd prefer me over Sako every day of the week. I think my agent might command a pretty large signing on fee, though.

What’s this Harry Wilson like?

 

7 in 13 for Hull last year, pretty sure their fans love him

 

Does he play LW?

 

Right wing cutting in.

Very technical, cracking player.

 

Sako would be about as tailor made as we would want at champo level, however his injury record is again poo. Certainly noticing a trend with our linked players.

I saw something about Sako being on 90k a week wages.

Not surprising, didn't he go to Palace on a free from Wolves? He'd likely have got a much bigger contract because of it. Similar to now tbh.

Is sako a free agent now? We can afford to spend a bit more on his wages if he is

 

He is a free agent. Even if we sign him on those wages it would be £15-17m on a four year contract, which is what we were looking at Ritchie's fee alone, his injury record is atrocious though so it's a no for me...

If we signed sako and bryan and didn't sell anyone I think we'd be as well placed for promotion as we ever have been. Obviously there's a couple of areas we could improve (right back and centre mid would be my two) but I do think that the players we have for those positions are good enough to not dent our promotion hopes significantly.

@Boro: #Boro trio @BrittOfficials, @bengibson1993 and @HarryChapman101 miss out due to minor niggles sustained during the week.

 

All three of them off then...

Chapman suffering a knock is no surprise, it's been one of his biggest issues getting into our team. Gibson could be trying to avoid injury scuppering a move. Britt could indeed just be having a strop.

What about Ayala's annual summer break injury? He is not in Austria, but at rockliffe...

 

Britt and Pulis might have had that fall out after all...

 

Chapman and Ben ... sold I guess

    • Aw come on, Transfermarkt only has him down as being worth €17m! 
    • Bournemouth, Southampton, Leicester City ,Sheffield United, Norwich, Watford, Burnley, Leeds, Aston Villa, Wolves, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Fulham, West Brom we used to be on a very even par with them all and I would suggest above par at certain times. In relation to this season where the hell did it go so wrong with those teams above though yes I accept that we will be playing against 3 of them next season we all know we did not set the world alight with last seasons relegated clubs. Ok yes I am living in the past somewhat but still believe we could still be at their level and competeing with them all
    • In fairness to Gibson, he's not likely going to invest a lot of money while Warnock is in charge. I expect he'll be given a modest transfer budget...just a bit more than he had this season. Its not going to be another Garry Monk spending spree, thats for sure. At the moment I think the club is in damage limitation mode until they can get fans back in the stadium and money coming through the turnstiles. I think its a case of better the devil you know. We're not likely to improve much next season, but another mid-table finish will do while the club gets back on its feet financially and is in a position to attract a better standard of manager. I mean, if you were a talented and ambitious manager, would you look at Boro as a good career move right now?  
    • Indeed. We can point to lack of quality and strength in depth, (which definitely were factors), but how often did Boro concede ridiculously soft goals, either due to inept keeping or defending...basic schoolboy errors? If we'd at least been decently organised at the back, (not watertight - just decent), we might well be looking forward to the play-offs.  
    • We finished exactly where I expected us to, in all honesty. Always found the talk of play offs baffling when we just about stayed up last year and didn't improve the squad in any meaningful way.  You can get promoted with average players and a great manager (likes of Leeds, Sheff Utd, Burnley) or you can just have a bigger squad with much better players than everyone else (Bournemouth, Watford, WBA, Fulham etc). Then you get Wolves, Norwich, Newcastle that have both and walk the league.  We had the money to make a bigger, better squad than everyone else and blew it... We've also had about 5 opportunities to get the manager right. Now we have neither and that won't be changing over the summer, so I think people need to be realistic. Is Gibson working behind the scenes to bring in an ambitious, upcoming Bundesliga manager to take over Warnock's steady mid-table ship? Find it hard to believe personally.  Foreign billionaire fancies an investment in the north east? Again, highly doubt it... and careful what you wish for anyway and all that. We're a mid-table Championship side until a big catalyst comes in.
