We'll end up getting a decent amount of money from our sales (Fabio 1.5m, Bamford 7m, Traore £14m ish after Villa's cut, Gibson 14m ish, plus whaterver Barragan went for), at least it gives us a better chance of filling problem positions

If we end up losing Gibson and Adama :liar:

 

I can stomach Gibson but we're going to need a lot of players in if they go and on top of that potentially still Britt, Braithwaite, Johnson, Fletcher and Leadbitter, going to be a huge turn around in the last week of a transfer window.

Yeah we'll bring in lots of money and then waste it on garbage like we usually do I'd expect.

The info I used to get was from someone high up. Doesn’t divulge anything anymore.

 

What I’ve heard today is from a player. Hopefully it’s wrong and I’d be love to be proven incorrect.

I’ve never ever been so pessimistic going into the start of a season. I’m dreading this season to be honest. I’m already getting that feeling of I can’t wait until next season and this one hasn’t started yet. I want to be positive but there’s nothing to be positive about. We are losing all our best players and look like we will end up with a team of plodders. I really think attendances are going to take a major hit this season unfortunately.

    • In fairness to Gibson, he's not likely going to invest a lot of money while Warnock is in charge. I expect he'll be given a modest transfer budget...just a bit more than he had this season. Its not going to be another Garry Monk spending spree, thats for sure. At the moment I think the club is in damage limitation mode until they can get fans back in the stadium and money coming through the turnstiles. I think its a case of better the devil you know. We're not likely to improve much next season, but another mid-table finish will do while the club gets back on its feet financially and is in a position to attract a better standard of manager.
    • Indeed. We can point to lack of quality and strength in depth, (which definitely were factors), but how often did Boro concede ridiculously soft goals, either due to inept keeping or defending...basic schoolboy errors? If we'd at least been decently organised at the back, (not watertight - just decent), we might well be looking forward to the play-offs.  
    • We finished exactly where I expected us to, in all honesty. Always found the talk of play offs baffling when we just about stayed up last year and didn't improve the squad in any meaningful way.  You can get promoted with average players and a great manager (likes of Leeds, Sheff Utd, Burnley) or you can just have a bigger squad with much better players than everyone else (Bournemouth, Watford, WBA, Fulham etc). Then you get Wolves, Norwich, Newcastle that have both and walk the league.  We had the money to make a bigger, better squad than everyone else and blew it... We've also had about 5 opportunities to get the manager right. Now we have neither and that won't be changing over the summer, so I think people need to be realistic. Is Gibson working behind the scenes to bring in an ambitious, upcoming Bundesliga manager to take over Warnock's steady mid-table ship? Find it hard to believe personally.  Foreign billionaire fancies an investment in the north east? Again, highly doubt it... and careful what you wish for anyway and all that. We're a mid-table Championship side until a big catalyst comes in. 
    • I just can't see where the money is going to come from judging from the club accounts and Bulkhauls horrendous year. Unless sales are happening
    • As mentioned above I do feel the lack of depth and quality in the first half of the season had an impact with us unable to rotate and rest players in our squad meaning we struggled in the 2nd half of the season. The likes of Mcnair were playing 4 games in 8-9 days with the international breaks but we didn't have any option to rest him given injuries and lack of quality to cover him. I think we were only a point off Watford when we got to January. Unfortunately our 3 loanees came with a lack of match sharpness requiring time to settle and then we lost the likes of Tav Dijksteel and Fry at important parts of the season. I agree with the second part I do worry with giving Warnock significant money considering he has probably got no more than 12 months left with us. It would be a huge gamble and if it goes wrong it sets us back another few years. However we need a fair few signings to even get on par regarding the standard of our squad for this season.
