Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure Johnson was kept about as a reserve left back. Might suggest the new full-back is nearly sorted..

Pogba? Keep dreaming guys.

 

Don't you rate him like?  I think he's pretty good and probably a step up from Wing.

 

Pogba is probably on AT LEAST £50k per week at United. He's going to want more than that to come here. Too expensive if you ask me.

 

He probably is a step up from Wing, but too much of a gamble. If he get's hacked off and stops trying and then we're lumbered with him. Better off sticking with Wing - IMO.

We certainly don’t need to make the club a graveyard for expensive flops.

Think Pogba just needs to feel loved and know what his role is. TP can do that no probs.

You know people are getting bored when the idea of Adomah and Tomlin returning starts to sound exciting

 

As much as people dont like ex players coming back, Tomlin would 100% add something to our team, he scores and creates goals regularly in the Championship. He obviously has games where he goes missing or starts dropping too deep as we've all seen, but if we want a proven attacking player he's as good a shout as any. I feel like if we keep Braithwaite them 2 could play very well together, Braithwaite is a yard ahead in the head than most of this league, Tomlin also has a very good football brain and I could see them really linking up well behind Britt/Hugill. All depends on what type of shape he is in and whether he would put in the hard yards that TP desires.

It's staggering to think quite how streamlined Pulis has got us since taking over from Monk's mess. We still need to spend some serious money to add some much needed quality into the squad though. The financial job that Pulis has done deserves some huge credit - independent of results (which are good anyway). It's very reminiscent to the way Sean Dyche had his Burnley squad very streamlined and efficient. Even when Karanka was doing well here I would still cast an envious eye over at the superb job Sean Dyche was doing at Burnley. Our wage bill will surely have plummeted under Pulis too too. All-in-all we're in a fantastic position on and off the field considering where we were 8 or 9 months ago.

 

Significant permanent transfers:

OUT: Christie, Fabio, Gibson, Gueudiora, Forshaw, Traore & Bamford (£50 million?)

IN: Flint & McNair (£12 million?)

I fail to see how that's a good thing pmards. Clubs with that type of transfer business rarely go anywhere but backwards. We've seen it before at Boro.

Round.

 

Cardiff bought him and then shipped him out on loan a few months later.  Forest had him on loan and presumably don't want him now.  Bournemouth bought him from us and then shipped him out a few months later.  Bristol City had him and sold him a year after buying him.  We had him for 18 months and then sold him.  For such a talented player it's amazing how many teams get rid of him shortly after acquiring him.

 

I doubt Pulis would see the value in him anyway, doesn't feel like his type of player.

A bit like Bamford I suppose CT, he's going club to club at a similar rate. I agree that I don't think he's a Pulis player either, but we could do alot worse than him IMO.

Just read the article in the Echo and if it’s indeed true that Besic and agent doubled their demands after AB agreement was reached then ultimately I hope we don’t revisit it as it’s obvious that money is the motovation. Also says were trying for Bolasie as well but probably not before The end of the month

Need to just pay whatever we need to for besic, it’s going to happen with every transfer now that clubs know we have money. Besic will more than likely be the difference between playoffs/mid table

Think we have to agree to disagree on this... don’t think he is worth 50k a week and 1million pound payment to his agent. That’s just my personal opinion. That said we do need another 4/5 through the door urgently.

100% the wrong attitude. Do that and we'll never be able to move any players on. Pay what we believe they're worth

This kind of attitude is what got Sunderland in a mess

    • That's one of the reasons I don't think he'll get sacked. You saw how easy our fans were swayed in the summer by one press conference and a handful of Gazette articles.  If we got relegated we'd just have a massive PR campaign from the club and Gazette and by August our fans would be raring to go again. 
    • Don't know if this counts as other boro stuff, but media saying Barcelona are trying to get Braithwaite hahaha
    • I don’t think Woodgate will get sacked this season, Gibson has faith in him and wants him to develop as a manager. As long as people buy season tickets, Gibbo will keep him in his role. If you want him out, you know what to do.......
    • I honestly don't see us being cut adrift at any point.  As bad as things have been, I still think we'll scrape enough points together to keep our heads above the bottom 3.  To answer your question about how bad things would have to be for Woodgate to get sacked, I'm not sure whether he'll even get sacked if we fall into the bottom 3 or get relegated.   
    • The short term vision of the club is to offload the high earners at the first possible opportunity. Is it any surprise that those players aren’t exactly killing themselves for the club’s cause?    The medium term vision, although not popular with many supporters must be to bring through young players, the likes of Spence and Coulson and flog ‘em for big bucks.   The long term vision? Gibbo wants to own a unicorn farm and he’s going to put Woody in charge. The money raised by selling unicorns will go towards buying top English talent that will propel us to the promised land.
