Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Transfermarkt has him playing RW far more than any other position.

As much as I would like to see us sign an out and out wide player I think we should trust Tony Pulis with this one. He knows what he's doing and what he wants. Still think we will sign one out and out wide player before the window shuts.

Might be wrong but I thought he played wing a lot at lower levels when he was younger but changed to a more central role as he got older/in the prem.

A right footed Downing then

With Zaha and Bolasie playing out wide he moved inside if I remember rightly

and Pulis likes players who can play multiple positions, gives him flexibility on the pitch without having to use his subs

This is what I thought. Last 3 or 4 years I'd say he's almost exclusively played centrally

No offence intended, but with less than 72 hours of the window remaining I can't believe we're talking about Rich's Sunday league career.  :disappointed:

 

Nothing else going on :)

Echo saying Saville's close probably way ahead of Friday at 5pm because Millwall are close on his replacement also saying Pulis wants at least 1 winger in. Echo seems bullish that we tried on VLP but also that Rafa Silva is not a target so Nixon's got the past week half right I guess, if the Braithwaite departure happens that 1 winger who comes in has to be a very decent player whether it's Nkoudou or a PL level player to replace MB I don't see Pulis as the type to loan a youngster from a big club like we did with Harrison.

 

Interesting that there was no mention of Rafa Silva in that article, perhaps the echo are back tracking on their initial bullishness.

 

Also interesting to see that Braithwaite is by far our highest paid player...

 

That is very interesting... it does fit the pattern of offloading whatever the club can to improve finances. 

 

The quote from The Northern Echo:

"Spanish sides Girona and Leganes have expressed an interest in Martin Braithwaite, who is the highest-paid player on Boro’s books by a considerable margin"

 

I'm sure if he does go, we'll hear from the Tony 'PR'ulis:

"We only want players who want to be here'

when in all likelihood he's probably been told to find a new club, to get his wages off the books.

 

Another theory, are the Echo becoming the new club's PR spin agents? "Ooo look we're after Rafa Silva" then nothing.

 

Another theory, is Tony Pulis being incentivised financially to put the club in profit as part of his contractual remit?

Are we still talking about Rich?

We should be hoping he's being classed as a central player and not the "dynamic winger" we're supposedly after

I really really hope Puncheon isn’t the answer to our winger problems. Or a replacement for Braithwaite.

To be fair, the Echo never said we were after Silva, they strongly denied it.

I would be fairly content with Puncheon and Saville if we keep Braithwaite. Granted I don’t know much about Saville but all reports on him points to a top championship player with versatility and if we are going to play with three midfielder we need quality cover. If we can move on Johnson and Leadbitter and find a good loan with development potential for Fletcher then all good. Perhaps a decent loan for some of the fringe youngsters like Chapman, Tav and some of the very young ones. Think Chapman would benefit a lot from a season or just 4-5 months under Mogga in the championship.

    • Heard Boro and few other clubs were not in great shape at all financially due to this situation. EFL loan has been covering them for March
    • Have any of ITK board residents bee  given any snippets of transfer news? Anything whispers in terms of players we might be looking at? Or any players close to sign new deal etc? 
    • And it’s the only cup that was open to all the teams in the world without the distraction of their own leagues. Come on BORO 🤪
    • He could genuinely win boro a cup. I am glad he has been able to make a name for himself though 
    • 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.
