Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

and I'm guessing, because we are nice old boro that we will be letting him go for less than market value, much less than we signed him For, and we are going to replace him with someone not as good but for the same price, if anyone at all.

 

On the plus side we have had a great start and the balance sheet looks incredible!! :P

The bit of hope i'm holding out for following the comment that we're not getting the players he wanted is Rafa Silva.

 

He's been one that our scouts have looked at for a few years so hoping there's something in that.

Not convinced it's Puncheon coming in then if TP said the players that will come in aren't his targets.

 

What do you mean aren't his targets? Is that what he said. So we're going to sign players who the manager doesn't want?

 

He said unfortunately he's not going to get the players he wanted but is happy for added competition.

This was the first thought in my mind, isn't an obvious TP player so hopefully he is one that is coming in.

Pulis just out here throwing bombs, Jesus.

 

We've gone from Ritchie one wing Bolasie the other at 15 million each and big wages to maybe Puncheon and I guess... Downing?

I'd let Braithwaite leave if a few conditions are met first because he's a bit of a *** always requesting to go all the time. Don't understand why he bothered signing in the first place and I don't believe his problem is because we changed from Monk to Pulis.

 

We get our money back. The £ is weak against the € so why should we be accepting less - they can pay what we paid for him initially. Also they can have him on loan but it has to be an obligation to buy in the summer at the latest.

I will say I really enjoy how open and honest TP is... can imagine top brass aren’t so pleased when he tells us we aren’t saying who he wanted however but fair play to the man

Well there’s not a chance we’re going to have enough depth this season. Also, we’ve sold our 4 best players and, as it stands, adequately replaced 1 of them (2 if you want to be generous). Marvellous.

I'm guessing that Saville, Puncheon and a backup LB just became Saville, Puncheon and a winger because Pulis just said we lack pace in wide areas once again yet neither of the 2 we're strongly linked with have pace in wide areas.

Such a depressing transfer window. At least we should have enough money to challenge at the top end of the Championship for a few seasons... we must have pulled in £50m and spent just over £10m.

I'm a little bit suprised people are shocked by braithwaite. TP made it clear in january he didn't want to be here and i don't see how his mind could of changed.

Gotta say i, having actually watched the conference, dont think his comments were as downbeat as portrayed on here. He said a couple of deals were close

 

Losing Braithwaite would be a blow though.

On Braithwaite I guess it’s clear he has been playing for a move.... or is that cynical of me?

 

Cynical? Nah. But I think Braithwaite is being very professional about this. He's been playing well for us recently and he's not refusing to play or show poor attitude to force a move.

 

It's still disappointing, but fair play to both Braithwaite and Pulis for being honest about the situation. 

 

And shame about Braithwaite wanting to move on. I'm guessing he hasn't settled too well on a personal and/or family level. His wife is French, maybe she's not into parmos.

    • 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

    • Knowing the quality of the Daily Fail, they probably have Fulham as the Premiership club wanting him. It boils down to the lad's views on his future, his contract ends there ends in the summer, so everything in his hands, If he does not fancy move, then "agreement on terms could not be reached. If he wants away, not a lot we can do to stop him but there are not that many top rem teams looking for keepers, so it should be fairly easy to work out likely suspects, assuming not jut agent talk trying to get us to make decent offer in future
