Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone think Middlesbrough fans (In General, not individually) think the club is much better than it is. I think it's quite arrogant to suggest anyone is our rival at present, and more arrogant to suggest we will be promotion candidates. I've seen very little up to now to suggest we will be. We have signed two tall players and in the one preseason game thus far (I know it's only 1 but first impressions and all that) we played back to front quickly. A policy which pulis has proved he can make work when trying to avoid relegation but very rarely leads to great promotion pushes.

 

Someone previously said that at present gestede would be starting the season. The only way that isn't true is if we buy another big target man. I can barely see Britt getting a kick so get rid....pulis clearly doesn't fancy him. The downside is that it will free up the money for pulis to sign another beanpole

 

every teams fans think their team is better than it is, because it is to them i guess.

 

its not arrogant at all to hope we are in the mix for promotion and guess our rivals. after all we ended up 5th last season and were basically useless, had a complete change in philosophy half way through and that basically made several new signings from the summer redundant. pulis was still stuck with a load of players he didnt like and managed to still improve on monk with monks players. shows you what a joke monk was i guess.

Before the Season starts I always think we're gonna be Champions,two weeks in and the wheels are off,BUT this season is going to be different right,

Exactly this.....only this season I have zero confidence that we will be anywhere near promotion.

We’re one of the few teams actually spending money. Flint and McNair are both good signings, so the squad is upgraded but we still need key positions filled (LW, CM and RW depending on Adama). The usual teams around us like Derby and Villa are having major budget cuts. Other than Stoke I don’t think there’s much in the teams relegated. So I don’t see reasons to not be optimistic,

I always begin the season expecting to finish around 7th or 8th, that way if we do better I’m pleasantly surprised, if not, then i’m not disappointed.

At this moment we have a team that’s finished fifth and added two players. So why zero confidence

We should be there or thereabouts this season. If it's looking like we won't be then this place will be an interesting read in 4 or 5 months time.

We need a couple more big lads and a set piece specialist, add those to the players we have and we’ll be feared by every team in the league.

I think we're in with a shout with the team we've got, I think we're one creative player away and I think that'll be addressed closer to the season starting

Add Joe Bryan, Ollie Watkins and forrestieri and I think we're laughing

Because I'm not naive enough to think we will have that squad at the start of the season or that the players there suit the hoof ball stuff we will be playing. We are also massively unlikely to sign the "creative midfielders" that people say we are short of as they aren't really pulis players and don't suit hoof ball. We are likely to start with 9 or 10 6ft+ players and no one with any great technical ability.

 

I would be confident with this set of players if we had a progressive manager

Do we actually have any credible links atm? I've seen Bryan for 10m - I don't see us paying 10m for a left-back... and Chris Wood if Britt leaves - I don't see Britt leaving..

 

Seems like nothing much is going on.. waiting for sales?
