Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Boro’s recruitment team have identified Hugill as the best option after Vokes, 

 

A ringing endorsement if ever there was one  :nervous:

We went through a phase of signing injured players or those who had recently come back from serious injuries and now the latest phase we seem to be going through appears to be Sunderland players or ex Sunderland players  :idea:

The N’Diaye link is a strange one. Not sure if he’s what we need and seems to be more of a defensive midfielder if I remember correctly. Had a great loan spell at Sunderland a few years back as well, just don’t see where he would fit.

 

He's better than Clayton. I think that's the long and short of it.

I agree.

Raf can you tell us positions? Are these the ones we’ve been playing the waiting game with?

 

•Blink once for winger

•Twice for full back

•Three times for any other position

I agree.

If we signed him and our chant wasnt "N'Diaye will always love you"(Whitney Houston). I would be more disappointed than when we sold Bamford or when PJ was blinded by a paintball in Byker Grove.

If it gets to deadline day and Traore's still here we should just unplug the phones and wait for it all to blow over.

 

Take him down to The Hollywood Bowl. It's safe and familiar.

How brutal is it going to be sat there with sky sports news on all evening, especially if there’s the slightest rumour.. which there will be because Twitter exists..

wasnt me sorry.

 

2 transfers have progressed today might be some announcement soon on 2 players still a hell of a lot going on.

 

Fair enough, I know you've said previously that you won't name names but are these players likely to be met with positive reaction? or very meh?

Waghorn is left footed, can use his right and is good in the air. He got 16 goals and 13 assists last season, with some of those coming from taking corners and free kicks.

 

He's definitely not a winger, but maybe he's Downing's 'replacement'.

 

He can take left footed set pieces, but also make runs latching on to Traore 's crosses in open play. With Friend anchored to the back four and three in midfield he wouldn't need to track back much.

 

------------------ Randolph ------------------

-- Shotton --- Flint --- Gibson --- Friend --

------ Howson --- Clayton --- McNair ------

--- Traore ---------------------- Waghorn ---

--------------- Gestede/Hugill ----------------

 

That could be the plan.

 

If it happens, Bamford has paid for Waghorn.

 

(no room for Britt in this predicted line up, I can't see him getting much game time from Pulis once Gestede is fit).

 

And all this is based on Traore staying... which I am pretending he is 100% until further notice.

Not with his shoulder, he’d never have dislocated it if he hadn’t spent so much time bowling. :)

 I heard he dislocated his shoulder from practicing throw ins, as he has to take them from the right instead of Shotton...

    • I agree with you mate. I think Roberts needs a rub of games. This idea of throwing him in here and there is unfair on him and neither will it see him produce his best. He might produce some mediocre performances to start with but give him a run of games and then see what he can do. If he fails to produce over a run of a half dozen games then by all means pass judgment For what it is worth i would be looking to get someone in on left who can cut in. A roberts equivalent almost. Bolasie would have been a good fit. 
    • Historically this is the sort of team we struggle against, but it is in our favour that they will not be coming here for a point as only a win benefits them. If we use the pace we have effectively and sit on their danger men, then the odds should be in our favour as I cannot see Warnock settling for a draw in this game. Might not be a big win, but if we can get a goal in the first twenty minutes, their confidence will not be boosted and we won't be on the edge of our seats for 90+ minutes. 2-0 should be possible and anything extra would be great.
    • The way the results went last night a win is now imperative if we are to keep momentum and belief going. A draw or perish the thought a defeat would be nothing short of disastrous. It does make you wonder "what if" at Blackburn had we seriously went for it. Of course we could have and then equally we could have lost but at some point NW has to start delivering a few wins which means he needs to change things at the sharp end. No better time to do it than tonight against what is currently the worst team in the Championship.
    • Derby bottom of the league with one win, and a crap  goal difference, it'll be very disappointing if we can't turn these over especially on our own patch, anything other than a win is a failure IMO, and not acceptable.
