Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

 

Apparently? Which source is that one?

 

Birmingham fans don't believe there's anything in it. Are they not under an embargo?

 

It’s crazy season no one knows what’s going on anymore

 

Was reported that Brum have been given free reign to sign 5 new players before the window starts so any interest they had in our players could now be followed up.

Sky Sports just making a story out of nothing, then. Not for the first time, complete amateurs!

It's terrible when people do that, isn't it?

FREEMAN TALKS END

 

We reported earlier today that Middlesbrough have made an enquiry for QPR’s Luke Freeman.

 

But talks appear to have ended abruptly, with one club source insisting the midfielder is not leaving Loftus Road in this window.

 

Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes also insisted on Twitter earlier this week that Freeman is “not for sale”.

Their chairman is already getting grief from their fans so this might be a ploy.  Walk away, state again that he's not for sale, we come in with a stupid amount (as is our wont) and then he can turn round and say "well we wanted to keep him but boro just blew us away with the amount they offered"

Alternatively, he might not be for sale.

Hugill is a Boro fan so its a no brainer he would want to come here and play regular football rather than sit on the bench at West Ham.

 

His scoring record is at best average. If he scores more this season than Bamford I’ll show my *** in the window of the artist formerly known as Binns.

 

He may be a Pulis type player, but that just means ‘runs around a lot, puts himself about a bit’. Give me Paddy every single time.

 

Yeah, tell me to forget him and move on. I won’t. I would have rather got rid of Pulis than Paddy. Built a team round him.

 

Still, I’ll always have his showreel and that goal against Derby.

 

*** you Pulis!

Maybe, but Les Ferdinand was in one of the London papers this morning saying that QPR fans need to come to terms with the fact they're a selling club

Hugill is a Boro fan so its a no brainer he would want to come here and play regular football rather than sit on the bench at West Ham.

 

His scoring record is at best average.  If he scores more this season than Bamford I’ll show my *** in the window of the artist formerly known as Binns.

 

He may be a Pulis type player, but that just means ‘runs around a lot, puts himself about a bit’.  Give me Paddy every single time.

Hugill is a targetman, they generally do score less its their style. why did west ham spend 10mill on him but lesser clubs would only loan paddy? if like you suggesting paddy is so much better is true the seems a bit odd that the boro lad is valued by a club more highly.

 

there is more to football than prancing about looking good and scoring a few goals. just like there is more to football than being the big man up top causing problems with your strength etc.

 

the style difference i'm not bothered about. i'm bothered that paddy wasnt a great fit in the team and hugill might well be. i'll take hugill thanks. hes better than what we have/had(paddy) to play how we play. he'll be more effective for us.

 

we are going to be that horrible physical team with added quality that nobody likes to play against this season. enjoy it.

So why are West Ham selling him having barely played? Hugill is a lump - that may work for us but let’s not pretend he’s a world beater. One decent season means nothing - hence why losing Traore is annoying but not the end of the world. Bigger issue is what sort of team we’re left with.

I suppose it's the same reason they never played Snodgrass.

he was totally useless last season for villa. if you cant get in west hams team they the champo is to hard for you i guess. ::D

 

ps i was taking the mick, snoddy stats = Goals 8, Assists 15.

 

if we sign hugill please everyone get behind him, hes local and no doubt his mates will look on here and things might get back to him. negativity is like a virus.

Of course - will aleways back whoever is playing. Love a boro fan playing for the club - making Gibson’s potential loss all the more painful. However, I am worried about the way the club is being run - we seem to be in a bit of a mess. I guess not having the relationship with the gazette means the club is a black box - which makes trusting them now all the more difficult....

    • No and its not healthy. I've seen posts on fmttm today with people saying they'll back Gibson even if he takes us down. That's fair enough but how long does this unconditional support continue?  I think some would let him take us down to non league and still chant his name in the ground.  I think people look at clubs like Sunderland and Coventry and worry that we could end up like that. They never mention clubs like Leicester and Wolves who have been similar sized clubs to us for the last 30-40 years.  It was always seen as sacrilege to criticise Gibson and it would have been madness to even think about him leaving, but I think he's gone stale now. I think if the club wants to be a club competing at the top end of this division again we either need a new owner or he takes a back seat and leaves the strategic running of the club to someone else.  Gibson is probably the best thing to ever happen to this club, the journey from 86-06 was incredible but things have gone completely stale. It feels like we need new ideas at the club now. 
    • Please put everyone right then Mr Noitall with your wealth of knowledge 😉
    • You'd be picking fights too with the likes of Woodgate and Downing causing discord in the dressing room.
    • We’ve got the following problems -  1 - a manager with no long term attachment to the club. He will try to do his best but ultimately it’s not the same knowing he won’t be here next season.    2 - a squad of players who are coming to the end of their time with boro. Some are on loan and some are moving on. Reality being that they don’t care about the shirt and will leave boro when we go down anyway. Can a manager who isn’t attached to the club long term motivate players who are about to leave? The last two games would suspect not.    3 - our style of play has again changed with a new manager. Evidence would suggest that it isn’t suited to our players. (We can’t cross or score from set pieces).     4 - coming out of COVID is always going to be tricky, but we are going down without a whimper. It literally feels like De Ja Vu form the prem season when we played Swansea today. Just waiting for that moment to come where the players are revved up and raring to go. Alas, it didn’t come.    5- the final problem we have is that teams around us are picking up points. They look like they want it more and it just pains me to see us shaft it each time we play a game.
