I saw someone on twitter ask skybet for odds on Tim Walter being Boro boss about 2 weeks ago

 

Said someone in the know told him he was having talks with the club

Graham Potter set to become Brighton's manager.

 

His name has been consistently mentioned on here, hasn't it?

 

Think he was mentioned as a want before he went to Swansea. Cant remember any links though.

Another club to compete with for a new manager. Think it's a big risk for Potter and Brighton tbh.

Had a few drinks with my source last night and only got a small update... interviews begin on Tuesday but being held in London by Kenyon and Gibson. 8 has now become 6...2 priced themselves out. Doesn’t expect announcement until first week of June. We defo don’t have much to spend on players... he said he wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of the older guard moved on... club wants a complete reshape. Gibson has realised to many players have been at our club for a payday. In terms of names... told we are after a foreign coach if possible but was also told woodgate is also high in SG thinking. Will add more into the transfers page as bits and pieces on that as well

No mate he was honest to say he can’t guarantee names are correct so would rather not say anything until he has something concrete

Interesting stuff. It sounds like the process used for AK. Actually assessing the candidates and their ability and interest in Boro. Expect loads of PowerPoints explaining why Randolph, Fry, Wing and Tav must not be sold.

 

Re people pricing themselves out I imagine they may include Arteta, unlikely to be Cowley, Walter.

 

So are we talking

 

Cowley

Walter

Woodgate

Karanka

who’s the other two?

Hughton, forgot him. Would Jokanovic be in the too expensive list?

The Dutch options Reizeiger and GVB would hardly be in the too expensive bracket?

I thought Reizeiger was getting promoted at Ajax. Just speculating In my head. Happy for names to be added removed. I wonder if we can get a consensus by the end of the day?

 

Kompany now he’s left City?

    • The problem I see is that we could still leave ourselves hanging if we want two and only sign one. It definitely feels like we could do with a couple of quality additions at the back. And if Gibson goes to the wire, we could leave ourselves in the lurch as our other targets, ones not just us are after, will move elsewhere. The lad from Leicester in particular seems like someone with a bright future and a decent career so far too, I'd be disappointed to see us miss out on signing him because we sign Simpson and we throw everything at getting Gibson and falter. I know some on here have switched off already for this season but I absolutely want to see us go for it so long as we can. I see very little point in switching off so long as we don't kill off our summer plans by doing so, let's finish as high as we possibly can and hey, even top 10 would be something after our start to this year. So yeah, I'm sceptical of Gibson signing without any cheap permanent by the end of it but by all means, get as much quality in as we can and give it a go.
    • D Blackburn  v  Q.P.R. H Brentford  v  N/Forest. (no scorer.) A Cardiff  v  W.B.A. H Hull Cty  v  Huddersfield. H Leeds  v  Millwall. A Luton  v  Derby. A Wigan  v  Sheff Wednesday. H Reading  v  Bristol City A Tranmere  v  Sunderland.. D Rotherham  v  Ipswich Twn.
    • I am not saying this because it seems the Gibson deal might be drifting away from us but I am quite relaxed about the whole situation. i think the reason for that is we seem to be eyeing some decent alternatives in Benkovic and Simpson who both come with a lot of promise. For once we not put all our eggs in one basket. I know club are looking at two CBs but if we get 1 of the above 3 in I will be happy with that. if we dont get either of the 3 then I will start to worry. Oh and i still got hopes our beloved boro will make a out the blue type signing for the top end of the pitch. Ideally more Lee Tomlin out the blue and less Adlene Guidioura out the blue.
    • Hey don't get uptight about it I was just pointing out to Smogzilla  a fact and how I see it. By the way there really is no effort in doing this, it just pass's some of my spare time and it keeps my brain active since I retired.  
    • The finances always had to be right for this deal to happen in this window and were a long way off from that happening from what I was told Thursday. What's the point in spending a million pound plus wages on a six month loan deal when we are not going to be either fighting relegation or fighting for the play offs. Deal could still happen yet but I expect us to push hard for permanent transfer in the summer. Ps whoever said Gibson had a medical over the weekend was talking utter cr@p
