I would be over the moon with Byram, I've wanted us to sign him for years, tidy player.

 

Byram would be awesome - he must have been mentioned in nearly every window for the last 3 years.

 

And imagine Karanka's frustration if we swoop in!

 

Do it Boro - we've got the funds.

He's hardly a first team player at Everton, he's behind Digne and Baines at LB and behind Coleman at RB

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

 

Don't see it personally. I think it will be one or the other. Probably Martina.

Aye, I wouldn't drop a division on loan to play back up personally.

 

exactly, no way would anyone with any ambition as a footballer be a first teamer (okay might be a backup but still first team squad with a good few appearances in the prem) to drop a division to be the same. he'll be first choice for us.

It could mean Shotton to centre-back if Martina comes in, too.

BBC reckons Bolasie to Burnley

 

To be fair firms like BBC and TalkSport won't even put up any transfer business unless its someone going to a Premier league club.

 

TalkSport's "North East" report this morning was embarrassing.

Aye, I'd imagine Shotton would be in the mix for CB and RB with Wood there as the 5th option in the centre. Shows just how much one signing can do for a squad.

I just popped in to talk about Martina... Now my best mate is an Everton fan, in fact 4 of my close mates are, so I end up seeing plenty of them.

 

My mate describes Martina as the worst professional footballer he's ever seen and can't stop laughing that we're looking at him. I've seen a fair bit of him and honestly, he absolutely appalling. I have no idea what we see in him, he genuinely is terrible. You know that saying "he's got two left feet", Cuco plays like he's got buckets at the end of his legs.

 

Having said all that; Freeman, Besic, Bolasie and Wallace would be really good additions, so you take the rough with the smooth I guess! If Bolasie can get near his pre-injury form he'll tear it apart, and I don't think anyone needs me to tell them about the other three. Really happy if we can get those over the line.

    • Adomah, Grant and Stuani would make a difference. Tuncay looked the part but as a club I felt we never really benefited from him to his maximum potential. The little fella is an obvious but he would be clogged to death in the Championship so Merse would be a better option. Traore was fast and exciting but that was it, he reminded me of one of those Burlesque dancers, plenty of teasing but nothing to show for it despite all those twirling tassels and mesmerization.
    • The Evening Gazette will surely report on the story soon. It’ll be another opportunity to reiterate for the hundredth time that no one wants to buy us and how we should be eternally happy to have Steve Gibson in charge of us. After all, it has been a good few weeks since their tongue was that deep in there.
    • I’m going to be cheeky and suggest a player from each manager in my recent time.   McClaren era = Gareth Southgate - a leader and a rock at the back. Mr dependable. Southgate era =  toss up between Johnson or Woodgate, but I’d have to say Woodgate for the same as Southgate. Oozed class and as much as I can’t stand him from his stint as manager. I can’t take away his defending quality. Special mention to Johnson for his natural width and quality at this level. Strachan era = Barry Robson. Hard working and always put a shift in. Not dripping with quality but the best of a horrendous recruitment period. Seriously, go back and have a look at some of the names...if you dare. Mowbray era = tough between grant or George. Both got at great prices and both did terrific work over their time with boro. Maybe Leadbitter shades it for his leadership ability which I feel friend lacked this season. Karanka era = Clayton in his prime. Played the holding midfield role to a t. Always felt like he had more to offer going forward but his responsibility reduced his impact further up. But I’d still say a Clayton in his prime with us is streets ahead of what we had this season.    Monk era = Braithwaite. I’m coming round to the idea that Pulis painted him out to be a bit of a snake and it’s not actually true. Sure he could have worked harder and fought for the shirt a bit more, but playing Pulis ball didn’t suit him and rightly so, he called him out on it. He had good quality though and how a team of Braithwaite, Bamford and Britt didn’t get us promoted is criminal.    Pulis era = Traore. When it was good, wow it was amazing. I’ve never seen a player as explosive and good at dribbling than him at boro. And we never will either. I also love how he grew under Pulis and was a player who you really wanted it to click for.     
    • I'm with Wilson, I'm a tuncay stan. I think if I had to pick someone who would make the most DIFFERENCE right now though...hmm, that's tough, especially if you can't pick TLF.  Gaston would bring creativity that we need. Traore is always a good answer too... And I can't believe I'm saying this because I mocked him for being nothing more than a shouty man, but we need Grant Leadbitter and his shouty man attitude right now too.
