The Transfer Thread.

Recommended Posts

Not expecting anyone in today, other than an obscure defender on loan that we'll be Googling.

 

Adama Traore and Yannick Bolasie... can't see either happening. Feels like classic Boro transfer window 'PR'.

 

Traore: They just broke their transfer record to sign him off us. Can't see them loaning back 6 months later.

 

Bolasie: Wages too high in the summer. Maybe a 5-6 month loan is more affordable, but I think we'd have tied this up by now if it was going to happen.

 

Expectations at an all time low.

 

'Success' for me would not adding any more defensive centre midfielders.

If anyone's interested, upon further investigation it appears that the flight from Cardiff is related to a meat company.

we've found a way to make some money back on Rudy Gestede?

I won't be against Bolasie now that he is match fit. With the clock ticking down and if no Prem teams come in maybe Everton are ripe for the picking and we can negotiate to split his wages. Agree to pay the wages in full if we are promoted. He is no use to them sitting in the reserves.

Sheffield United have, as expected, signed Scott Hogan from Villa on loan.

I think heads will roll if we don’t sign some form of attacking additions. It would ineptitude of the highest order.

Who's heads? Gary Gill and Bauser are absolute Teflon in the eyes of the club, it seems.

We're not attempting to bring in Bolasie or Traore according to the Gazette.

 

Think everyone might need to lower their expectations today.

So the Gazette have insider sources saying Bolasie burned his bridges in the summer, Traore's a no go, Hull local press is saying Grosicki's out of reach because of what Hull are demanding, Birmingham are not interested in selling us the flu let alone Vassell because of our court fight and the gymnast's still on the books because he didn't fancy Millwall.

 

And Aberdeens evening news confirms Aberdeen did field a recent enquiry from Boro about McKenna they quoted them what they quoted Stoke 8 million pounds and they haven't heard back.

 

For people saying 'everyone else is struggling', Forest could end the day with 3/4 top quality loan signings and West Brom entered today wanting TWO wingers they look like they'll end up with Montero and Murphy who are these other teams that are struggling that are near us in the table?

 

We've lost LB cover in McQueen, CB cover in Batth, we have 1 striker out of 4 that Pulis remotely fancies and right now nothing's looking good.

I honestly think something is going on far beyond what we all know. In a normal business our recruitment team would have been pumped by now.

    • Steve Gibson's primary concern is to have total control and likes to see the club as his vehicle to give his mates jobs, which vicariously gives him power. Gibson, akin to his Tory leaning ways, is obsessed with power and controls the media by keeping the Evening Gazette and BBC Tees toting the party lines. I don't blame the Evening Gazette sports team, it's just Gibson and the Club using their power to remove any meaningful scrutiny that the club have. The Club have got Neil Maddison on the payroll with his job within the club. Slaven got sacked in that role after becoming too outspoken. Gibson is doing everything in his power to avoid scrutiny. If he bothered to put the same practices that he puts into avoiding scrutiny, into organising the club into being successful on the pitch then we wouldn't be in this mess. There are many parallels between how the Club control the media and how the Tories get an easy ride from the right wing press. The only time when we've been successful in the past decade is when Karanka and Orta took control away from Gibson. Either side of Karanka being here we've wasted money on garbage signings and knee jerked between unsuccessful managers who were either unproven and unprepared to be a manager or dinosaur managers. I also don't like how when Karanka and Orta left Gibson got the Evening Gazette to launch a smear campaign on them. It was very dirty by Gibson. The way I think Gibson views the club is that as he puts loads of millions into MFC then he can do whatever he wants. The mantra is basically that the fans are meaningless and that Gibson is infallible like a medieval King or Pope. I think the Club would be by far better off if there was more scrutiny of decisions, both within itself about appointments to senior positions, like could anyone have warned Gibson about appointing Woodgate and Bevington into such influential positions?, and externally through the media; There were eyebrows raised on here about both those appointments, yet the club saw no issue and the Evening Gazette and BBC Tees didn't scrutinise the decisions. It has just produced propaganda on behalf of Woodgate and the club. We're teetering on the brink of relegation to League One, and its abundantly clear that Gibson is completely mismanaging the club. We desperately need a Director of Football in the Summer to take away the power from Gibson's incompetent hands. Hopefully we can somehow salvage this season so that we're not walking out as a League One side in August. It's incredibly worrying times.
    • Yeah I probably agree with you there.  Wouldn’t be surprised if he went back to 5 at the back and had Coulson as wing back. That way we could still get his threat going forward. 
    • Breaking... We have a New manager!!
