Summer Transfer Window 2018.

TP: Adama was my best buddy. At the beginning he looked a bit sullen, at the end he was bright. I hope the fans realise the want to play in the PL @ the top level. I don’t know if it’s a done deal, I’ve just come out of the dressing room.

If we’re now playing wing backs, why oh why did we sell Christie! We can’t have Shotton playing right wing back surely

What did he say about Braithwaite? Someone elsewhere suggested as though it sounds like he will be going as well.

The only thing I've seen so far is:

 

TP: Martin has done well, Britt did well for an hour - tired toward the end. But to pick one would be unfair.

I think we just played 3-5-2 in that game to match up against Sheffield United. Nullifies them well because we had a more talented player in every position.

He basically repeated his "you have to want to be here" speech when asked about Braithwaite on bbctees.

Precisely. We did the exact same in the 2nd half at Bramall Lane last season and pretty much dominated them after a shocking first half. He adapted us into a formation that suited playing against them and he even changed us back by the 2nd half when Woodburn came on. They lost their shape so we went back to something we knew and understood better. Then we were pretty much playing 5-4-1 at the end.

I'm more confused after reading all his comments than I was before he talked to Gibson which is good but I mean we're at Tuesday we've known the state of play on Adama, Gibson and Waghorn since Saturday not sure what's meant to have happened in between. It just feels like given the choice between us who have George Friend in the team and Villa who have Neil Taylor if I was Joe Bryan I'd probably choose Villa just because I can see an easier path into the team.

 

I think we need 3 permanents by Thursday and if we're going to throw around Braithwaite still leaving then the loan market talk rings a little hollow I mean we'd be fighting half the league for the same loan targets from the Prem I don't see how we can fill all of our gaps with loans unless we make 3-4 permanent signings of top end targets we'll see.

Sounds like Braithwaite wants away still.

No Championship fixtures until Saturday now so we should start seeing some real action tomorrow

So this is what he says about Braithwaite

 

"Everyone wanted Adama to stay. Everyone wanted Gibbo to stay. Everyone wanted Patrick to stay. But that's not the world today that we live in. You know, if the lads are offered stuff and they wanna go, it's very, very difficult to stop them."

The presser has just gone up. 2 things of note, first that someone asked about Braithwaite's future and Pulis responded saying something along the lines of:

 

"Everyone wanted Adama to stay, everybody wanted Gibbo to stay, everybody wanted Bamford to stay... but players get offered things and they might want to take up those options"

 

The other thing of note, I detected a certain Phil Tallentire in the audience, his very distinctive tone... are the Gazette allowed back in altogether? Or are they just choosing to send Phil and Vickers now and leave Dom out of it?

What’s he trying to say? That if a good offer comes along Braithwaite wants to move and we can’t stop him? I suppose that’s the reality of being a championship team and not a top division team.

I dont think the Gazette were ever banned, just those 2 individual ones so the whole gazette decided to do a boycoutt or whatever.

    • I would go with following Pears Shotton Harold Friend Howson Paddy Wing Tav Coulson Britt Fletch Not against Spence but we need to get back to being strong and that back 3 has good experience and 2 out the 3 are naturally centre backs. So hopefully that offers the solidity we need Harsh on Sav but i think we need Tav in team as he carries the ball well from CM towards the strikers. And the link between midfield n forwards of late has been non existent. I deliberated whether to play Ravel or Britt with Fletch. Gone with Britt in hope of extra firepower. I am hoping Tavs inclusion means creativity of Ravel is less needed. Nmecha n Rudy not done much of late. I accept neither has Britt but hoping thats down to him feeling his way back after injury. For all his faults his record in this league is good and i hope he can find the form he showed towards in last 6 games of last season where he went on a run.
    • I’m going to work it out tomorrow! It’s not dead.. 
    • More than anything I hope we win. Not sure of what team he is going to put out or what formation he is going to play and I suppose it doesn't really matter if we get 3 points. It has been a complete waste of a season for me. I can normally see the positives in most things, even Pulis, but we just seem to be drifting into ever increasing mediocrity. 
    • Playoffs here we come 😜
    • 3 points    1-3 to The Boro!
