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 disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
    • Played as a striker he was a immense. A proper poacher and could shoot from distance too.

    • and replace him with who? Ivan Toney at a higher price who is unproven in the championship? We can all see that Brit is not perfect but replacing him is much harder, especially when good strikers are the most saught after commodity for teams in any division
