Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Fletcher has Traore’s brain with Shotton’s touch. He has the physical attributes (pace, power) to make it but he never will as he doesn’t have the mental and technical attributes to match.

 

That’s what people were saying about traore a yr ago

I refuse to believe anyone ever said that Traore had a bad touch. The ball sticks to his foot.

Unlike some people I want all our players irrelevant of history to do well.. because them doing well means boro doing well... come on BORO

 

You can still want someone to do well even if you expect that they probably won’t. There is a difference, you do realise that?

 

I haven’t read one person say that they don’t want Fletcher to do well. I’m sure everyone would be over the moon if he finished the season as the Championship’s top scorer. However, having seen him play, I suspect he probably won’t.

 

Optimism vs pessimism. So if he doesn't at least i've got 100% behind the lad vs bashing him on forums like this, calling him a donkey etc.

Fletcher seemed to do well for Sunderland's in their televised games towards the end of last season so I'm feeling a lot more positive about him than when he struggled to impose himself here. Once he regains his confidence fully and adapts to the physical nature of competitive football I think he has every opportunity to come good if he has the right mentality.

No Waghorn for Ipswich.

But Freeman starts for QPR, and Bryan for Bristol.

Fletcher is younger than Lewis Wing ffs, shocking some of the stuff said about him on here.

 

Exactly. The lads a kid and a prospect; people are willing to give players like Wing and Chapman a chance but have already written off Fletcher.

 

And it's funny that some of those saying "it's not about the fee..." are the ones who bang on about it every time Fletcher's name is mentioned! ;)

 

You could also argue that people only think he's a prospect because of what he cost, if we'd brought him in on a free transfer he'd barely get a mention.

 

I can see the argument that he's got some of the physical attributes to be a player but you need a lot more than that to succeed at this level.

 

We are talking about Adama here, right? :P

But Traore had a great touch and amazing dribbling ability to add to his pace and power. All he needed to do was add crossing or shooting and he was going to be a threat. Fletcher needs to add a first touch to his game to succeed and that is something that’s very difficult to coach. Here’s hoping he does though.

View from the Ipswich end on Waghorn:

 

Waghorn not even on the bench for #itfc. No surprise. His sale is key to Hurst signing the players he wants over coming days. Injury not a risk worth taking for one game.

Are they even bothered about him leaving?

They're turning 200k into 8m. Why would they be?

Why would their fans care about getting £8m? Not like it’s going in their pockets.

    • I'm simply going by the fact that it doesn't seem to mentioned anywhere that they haven't been paid.  The Charlton forums I looked at haven't mentioned it and generally you'd expect to see it there.  It's not like that kind of thing stays secret for very long, and with all of the grief he's getting, it would be reasonable to assume that if he wasn't being paid, that he'd say so to defend himself.  All he's said is that the decision has been a really difficult one for him to make but that his fear of injury is such that he doesn't want to play, and that he knows he'll be seen by some as being greedy.  It's also perhaps worth pointing out that he was missing for two months earlier in the season after being injured playing for Montserrat and I assume he still received his Charlton wages then as well.  All in all, he'll have played about 4 months for Charlton this season but been paid for all 12 months, unless they refuse to pay him this month, which they should.
    • Apart from some unfounded speculation on here I have seen nothing to suggest he hasn’t been paid. Do you know that he hasn’t been paid? If he hasn’t, then I’m surprised he hasn’t just said so, instead of saying he can understand if people think he is a money grabbing player with no loyalty, but hopes that people will forgive him for only thinking about himself.  There is nothing to suggest he hasn’t been happy taking his pay during the last few months without lifting a finger and now he can only think about himself. 
    • Report on Moukoudi which can be filed in the section 'complete bullshit' https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2020/06/04/report-woodgate-signing-already-facing-middlesbrough-exit-pl-clubs-will-bid-9m/
    • Where is the evidence to prove he has or hasn't getting paid? I haven't personally seen it yet.
    • Aye, it does put it all into perspective when you say it like that 😰
