Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Gianelli Imbula has been told to find a new club by Stoke, wonder if we could maybe get a cut price loan deal. He'd be decent back up and if he was up for it definitely better than our other midfielders.

 

Remember watching him at the Riverside when we drew 1-1 and I thought he was the best player on the pitch.

 

Same. Will probably end up back in Ligue 1 or La Liga and if he's deemed surplus to requirements at Stoke, you have to wonder if his head is really in it for the Championship. But the player I saw that day at the Riverside was light-years ahead of anyone else.

 

Rumours Sevilla are looking to replace Steven N'Zonzi with him, though. N'Zonzi is heading to Roma.

Club spunks money on players, criticised.

 

Club doesn't spunk money on players, criticised.

 

Incredible.

 

Always the way mate. Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

 

Yep it’s the same as the give the youngsters a chance/ why haven’t we loaned in any young hungry players from the premier league? Argument.

That's not the point, mate. The point is when when some people hold the same opposing points of view. Some people want and simultaneously don't want the club to spunk money on players. Same for developing your own and then signing other young players. If you're one side or on the fence, that's fine, people will disagree but that's opinion. It's the hypocrisy which winds people up.

Absolutely, it’s an argument against hypocrisy not against differing opinions, opinions are like *** holes, everyone’s got one.

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

 

That last parts makes me think the club are going to wait till the end of the loan window before making any moves!

Do they think their more likely to get better deals?

Have they learnt nothing from the transfer window?

My god! Get the bloody players now!

 

It’s probably because players like Bolasie want to stay in one of the top divisions so want to wait and see if a club from abroad comes in for them.

People will look at this has them only coming here as a last resort but for me that’s the type of players we want. We don’t want players that are happy to stay in the championship.

So we'll probably wait for Bolasie until the last day of the window, when he tells us he still doesn't want to come here we'll be left with about 3 hours to find a wide player.

Bloody hope not. Hope the club has learned from the Jesé/Bojan debacle.

Think we'll wait for Bolasie until we find someone else, I don't believe we'll have all our eggs in the same basket.

Trying to sign players considered not good enough for other Championship teams/recently relegated teams doesn't exactly scream ambition. Negative.

 

Absolute rubbish. DZ. There’s many reasons a person doesn’t make an impact at a club formation/style/position. There might be a fringe player custom made for what TP wants him to do. Also I don’t remember many people calling Wolves or Burnley negative when signing our players from a lower league. Added to that there’s hardly a plethora of premier league players wanting to

a) Drop a division

b) Move to Boro

 

But you do get points for the Opta style one word sentence:)

 

My post was laced with sarcasm :)

 

Misinterpretation.

Has anyone seen the report regarding Fabios transfer: https://www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk/sport/football/middlesbrough-fc/defender-paid-50-000-of-his-own-money-to-force-through-middlesbrough-exit-reports-1-9300219

 

We're certainly not just throwing money away for the sake of it :)

 

I reckon that sort of thing probably happens quite a lot - players foregoing signing on fees or taking pay cuts are essentially the same thing , I suppose.

    • I don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
