Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

I’m assuming Ripley will be going out on loan again then. I sort of wanted to see Ripley be our back up keeper this year but it is probably better for him going out on loan and getting game time rather than sitting on our bench behind Randolph all season.

 

I'd be surprised if its a loan this time. He's 25, he needs to start making a career for himself.

Why would anyone expect to see Ripley involved here? The lad was dropped by Burton and then by Bury. He hasn't lived up to the hype.

I’m sure TP has 4-5 players he wants in 4-5 positions. Some more important than others but if the less important ones come up first then they get done first .

Unfortunately for some supporters signing a GK now doesn’t mean we are still working on the problem positions it means we have no intention of signing players for the problem positions .

I’d love to watch these people shop. God help the other half if they put the chocolate in the basket before the bread

Is Ripley even THAT good? I know Burton had him behind veteran Bywater at the beginning of last season and I don't know too much about his loan to League One. But the is obviously a reason for his lack of progression be it his own ability or coaches not fancying him

Middlesbrough will sign a player today. Goalkeeper Andy Lonergan joining on a free transfer.

 

WTF are we doing?

 

Maybe we've received a sensible bid for Ripley (or in some way, his departure is expected) and are just signing someone on a free to cover for his departure. Makes sense to me. Gives us a bit extra in the kitty and whilst it's sad to see him not make his name here, he can't even get in ahead of Dimi in the pecking order so it doesn't say much for him.

 

This wasn’t a WTF angry response haha more tongue in cheek than anything. Don’t have a problem with at all :).

    • The Irish health department released this graph today showing the effects of social distancing and lockdown. It's interesting as (if accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise) Ireland should be looking at about 15000 cases today but we are currently just shy of 3000 cases. Looks like we are flattening the curve here before we've hit critical saturation of the hospitals.       
    • A new study by from Imperial College London estimates that up to 2.7% of the UK population may have been infected so far - that's about 1.8m people if it's correct.  It's a statistical model though so you have to keep that in mind.  Also says that between 20,000 and 120,000 lives might have been saved across the 11 European countries they were looking at thanks to the measures put in place so far 👍
    • A quick addition to this interesting question, probably for the older supporters in part 1, but everyone who has travelled to support in part 2. part 1 when answering the original question I found that our time at the Riverside has been filled with great goals but when thinking about it I found that the goals that made me most exhilarated and hyper in my celebrations nearly all came at Ayresome Park, now I’m old enough to have been an active supporter over the 2 grounds but I do believe the sheer joy and communal togetherness of a Boro goal at Ayresome beats that at the Riverside. part 2 I also chose a goal scored away from home too, and I was wondering if anyone felt that goals scored at home or away brought out different feelings of joy and excitement. For me, I’ve been on many a thankless away trip but there is something genuinely special when you score away from home, whether it be a Bernie Tap in or a Karambeu missile like he did at Valley Parade, there all special but an away goal is like a good pint that comes with a chaser imo. You can never count on them but when they come everyone of them is welcome.
