Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Ffp places restrictions on what owners can put in, given that Gibson already donates the maximum amount what would the foreign guy bring.

Usmanov selling his shares in ***nal to stan kronke. He is unlikely to invest in another premier league club according to ssn. Never said anything about championship clubs. I've never wanted us to have a foreign owner but wonder if he has any interest in investing lower than the premier league

 

You want a shady Russian buying into the club in this climate?

 

It has been a pretty hot summer hasn't it? :cheese:

Hugill is signing

 

Source?

 

Can’t say specifically but from someone very in the circle of that deal. As cringe as that sounds

Not saying I want it, but might bring in a more ambitious manager than gibson.. let's face it, As great as Gibson has been for boro, his managerial appointments have hindered us on multiple occasions.

Hugill's a bit like an Ashley Barnes type he's got a strong build uses it well and isn't the tallest but makes up in effort won't hurt to have him around he could do the job Nugent did the year we got up except he's still got legs and youth.

 

Not convinced about playing him out wide though think he's best not in a two necessarily but off a striker who'll make runs off him but we'll see I'm ok with it as a signing so long as there's a Vokes type coming in for striker as well.

I disagree on the managerial appointments. We cry out for the next best young up and coming manager and he gave Garry Monk that chance and he failed, he will also fail again at Birmingham I believe by trying to rip the core of the squad. 

 

Aitor Karanka was a masterstroke and a huge risk that payed off.

 

Steve Agnew is someone Gibson obviously admires but he realised he wasn't quite ready.

 

Tony Mowbray saved us.

 

Gareth Southgate is now England manager so shows he clearly had the promise.

 

Steve McClaren was also a great appointment.

 

Strachan and Monk have been the only poor appointments in the last 10 years and arguably Southgate but was harshly sacked. 

 

I think it is very harsh to question his appointments.

I know the family vaguely but I've not heard anything.

Not to say it isn't happening of course.

It's so difficult to succeed at the top level of football, it's easy to pick out those who have succeeded as an example, but no one picks out the countless others who fail.

    • Or maybe there won’t be one. We can’t keep everything under lockdown until the virus is completely gone or there is a 100% cure. Obviously money is a question because a lot of jobs depend on the football industry but the professional sport itself is a very safe environment for everyone that’s in it.  The governments around Europe are simply starting various businesses up that is deemed safe and professional football behind closed doors isn’t dangerous in any way. 
    • I suspect much of  the league is going to be in a similar position. We're quite lucky to have so many players running out of contract just as this economic crash is coming. I can see most of the league desperately trying to cut their wage bills.  Biggest downside is no one will be willing to spend money on Britt.
    • I would have said they were on a revival before the season was stopped. They were sixth in the form table over the last six matches. That was what seemed strange about the previous manager leaving - unless they had already lined Nathan Jones up to return? So  it could go either way for them. I guess for all clubs it’s like a new season starting, what with long term injured players returning and the fact that some players seem to start a new season quickly whilst others take time to get their form and settle in.
    • Haha, just wait until the inevitable second wave hits us. Some serious questions will be asked.
