No word of any outgoings? Would mean The Ass still being around and Fletcher perhaps going out on loan.

I'd rather have Byram than Martina, but either would suit what we need in that position.

 

That still on, yeah I'd agree with you there.

Looks like no left backs on the way

 

Aye... went to put the squad together and that did concern me. Unless he's considering Downing at LWB in the 3-5-2 an alternative?

Hardly surprising since Friend has been captain.

 

can Martina play RB and LB?

Martina's a RB/LB after Allardyce converted him to cover Baines' injury last season he played 20 odd games in that position and did alright.

I imagine if Martina does come in, that ends any further recruitment for defenders. He covered for Leighton Baines at left-back despite being a right-sider naturally. He covers a fair few positions for us if needed.

If we land Besic and Freeman,

 

Besic, Freeman, Howson, Clayton, McNair, Wing

 

Has to be one of the best pool of CMs in the league?

 

You forgot Leadbitter !

Leadbitter's too busy pointing and shouting at the lifeguard to be considered part of the pool.

The Byram thing is interesting though because apparently West Ham only want to sell him not loan him out, which is what Forest are offering. So maybe we're buying Byram for RB and loaning Martina as cover for both full back positions, he could be this years Martin Crainie

    • I think its either Bettinelli's agent trying to rack up interest (which is his job in fairness)  or lazy journalism or more likely a combination of the two. Dimi had an incredible record here for clean sheets in a season but it was a similar story to now with the organisation of the defence resulting in the Keeper having little or nothing to do. No disrespect to Dimi but he was hardly the most athletic or agile Keeper I've ever seen in a Boro shirt, although no worse than the medal bedecked one who came in after him which proved how playing behind a good team can make a keeper look great. Most Keepers would do well behind the current Red barrier in front of them. Bettinelli's vocal skills does add to that sense of impenetrability probably as much if not more so than the actual amount of work he has to do keeping shots out. Decent keeper who I would prefer to stay but I would be more concerned about losing Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Bola, Friend, Howson etc.
    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
    • If you dont mind a short drive get yourself booked into Art La Vey up towards Newcastle. That guy is head and shoulders above most in Boro. Mark at Nothingsacred in Stockton is class if you're wanting some dotwork done
