Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Explain why we played 3 at the back in 2nd half of the friendly then? Also didn't pulis play 3 at the back at WBA last season?

 

Easy

 

We didn't. Next question?

Slightly off topic, but I would just like to take this moment to remind everyone KM once turned his nose up at a certain Harry Maguire in the Summer Transfer Thread. Never forget.

 

Yeah when he was at Hull I think we looked at him,When he scored for England I though just our luck A Boro reject

 

I know it's fun to mock KM but in fairness it wouldn't have made the slightest bit of difference to us had we signed him.  We'd have still been relegated.  Gibson and Chambers were a perfectly decent pairing for us, our problems were pretty much everywhere else.

We'd have had him last summer and probably sold him for double what we paid. That said we'd have most likely blew that money on crap anyway!

Bryan from Bristol is interesting... but he’s only 5ft 7!

yep we enquired about him and hull told us hes not for sale. did we offer 6 million? or was that my imagination?

 

At the time Maguire was very much for sale and we were expected to get him, then Hull ended up with no CBs due to injury so Bruce couldn’t let him go, actually started playing him and the rest is history

Tyrone Mings is apparently on the radar of Forest,hope that we are all over that.

 

An upgrade on Friend at least.

 

Oh and he's dead tall and loves a long throw in..

Who knows what level he is at now. I checked up on him a few weeks ago and he has hardly played in two years. I’d much rather have Bryan from Bristol.

Let's not make out that Harry Maguire was the complete defender he was then that he is today. He wasn't even a starter for Hull City at the time. I raised concerns at the time because we needed PL experience. Had we signed him it wouldn't have made much difference anyway.

Just to add to the Bryan story... Fulham are interested as well but would him and Sessegnon work in same team? Leeds are looking to get Vydra and Hugill done before they look any further... the longer it goes in the window the more interest will increase in my opinion... also don’t be surprised to see Friend used as left sided CB at times

Who is KM ?

He was the world's original scourer of all things internet based around potential Boro transfers. Be it twitter or the forums of the third division in Poland he would find a Boro link. He also stayed in a bush outside the hospital Boro players have their medicals up to 2 weeks prior to deadline day to get the exclusive.

 

Other people got wind of this and began stealing his exclusives. He was broken man and began criticising us being after players like McGuire. He went into the wilderness for months shortly after January 2017. Some say he was kidnapped others that he got married. He has recently made a return to the forum but we will never know if he will ever be the same.

 

A long story short he found lots of transfer rumours on the internet and wasn't happy about us potentially signing McGuire.

As long as he won't be used as LB anymore

Friend was a CB at Donny. Would actually make a lot of sense.

    • It was hardly a massive change last summer. We signed 3 league 1 players and the first team squad hasn't changed that much. This summer however we are finally rid of the high earners that didn't really offer much on the pitch. There are some serious wages going out of the club. A perfect opportunity to build a balanced squad - but how many times have we said that over the years.
    • Woodgate didn't make us competitive as he was way too inexperienced, so maybe it would be a decent move to have Warnock assist when we do interviews. Obviously it won't be necessary if we are talking to experienced managers like Hughton, but if we target young or foreign managers, it might be a good move to have someone experienced assisting with interviews. I can't for the life of me imagine Gibson and Bausor asking the relevant footballing questions about how the manager works on a day to day basis and how he prepares his squad for games. You need someone who can really grill the potential manager with relevant questions.
    • That would have been a very "typical Boro" moment - one of our guys getting sent off while the ref remained blind to all the shenanigans from Millwall.
    • That is my worry too. Hopefully, if Warnock keeps us up and decides he fancies another season, he might be able to convince Gibson its time for a change of plan...or even to have one in the first place...
    • Well if we survive and its still an if at the moment. I dont think we have any alternative but to employ Neil Warnock if he will take the job. This is particularly because of the scare we have had this season. We cant have that again and I dont think that Warnock has let it happen again once he has properly got hold of a club. Some people may say well what about the seasons after, well Boro have never been able to plan ahead and it would be even more difficult in our current position. I dont want to suffer this again but i think proper recovery may need gradual progress. So Warnock as manager, its a Yes from me.
