Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Surely if Traore was having his medical this morning he’d of signed and confirmed by now? Anyone know what’s happening with this one? Has he been spotted anywhere up here in the past hour or so ?

Record signing and they just say "Hey, he's signed, ta'rah"?

 

Not in this day and age. As I said, even Derby will have some social media crap planned and they'll want to announce it at the right time in the right way to get the most likes, retweets, etc. etc. Social media marketing is making the most of transfer season nowadays.

Bolasie, Besic & Hugill all on Boro’s radar. Going to be a busy few days at Rockliffe.

It's funny cos since the play off semi final defeat I thought I'd prepared myself for Gibson and Adama's exits.

 

But now we're here it doesn't half hurt :'(

Aside that cruciate injury Bolasie has been pretty consistent in putting in 30+ games a season I'm not too worried about his age/condition, when he signed for Everton it was widely said he was coming into his prime that was just 2 years ago so if we pull it off for me it's an upgrade on Adama or at least on the Adama at the ability level we sold him today. The last time he was in the Championship he did only get 7 assists 4 goals but on the other hand that Palace team was pretty poor no one expected them to go up so you'd hope for a better return in a team like ours with our 30 million pound strikeforce.

 

If we pull Bolasie and Vokes off I think we're definitely well set then bring in a Hugill on loan for extra forward cover we'd still be a creative mid short, LB and a RB but we surely can't just take in 40 million and supplement it with loans left right and centre that's madness. Bryan would actually be close to perfect for our needs he can provide a defensively sound option at LM and cover for injury/form for Friend I've been hoping we win that battle rather than Waghorn to be honest. Another window where you think at the end we still seem short in x, y and z though will be a *cking shambles so we'll see can't imagine there's been too many times in the clubs history where we've had balance sheets like we have right now though I mean we ended last summer on net barely spending much same goes for when we were promoted is it an overstatement to say the club itself has never been richer than right now after these sales?

    • We have an official Fifa Esports player now! he's currently guided us into the last 8 of the Ultimate Quaran Team tournament being run.   He has beaten Huddersfield, Walsall, Central Coast Mariners & VVV Venlo so far.
    • 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.
