The transfer thread has been as eventful as Boros incoming transfer activity.

 

There's still time  :D

Our parachute payments ending at the end of this season seems to have played a huge role in us limiting our signings to short term deals and loans. It's a decision made by those within the club, such as Gibson, to try to deal with us still having lots of poor value for money players that we're lumbered with, and we're going to struggle with even more next season without the parachute payments. Gibson's faith in Pulis will have taken a knock after his ineffective recruitment on permanent deals for Flint, McNair and Saville. Plus our chances of promotion are looking pretty low right now.

 

Steve Gibson's daughter Victoria's boyfriend Joe has been saying on Twitter that our parachute payments ending are the reason for us not spending even more money. So I'm fairly confident that this is the rationale for it.

 

I don't blame Gibson for not spending money now, but for him making so many bad decisions that have led to this, arguably, sensible longterm business decision. The lack of investment this window is the result of trying to clear up the mess left from chronic mismanagement over previous years. We're in a mess predominantly because of that splurge in Summer of 2017 ( shortly after the Gueudiora and Gestede signings). Gibson's reputation is rock bottom. I can't remember it being quite so low. Pulis leaving will be welcomed but I won't rejoice at it because we've got far more fundamental problems that concern me in the long term such as Gibson's ability to make sensible decisions.

 

We were trying to sign Maja the other week?  Were we going to pay Sunderland in vouchers to Rockliffe Hall?

 

There are different reasons as to why we haven't got anything done, it's not just one blanket reason.

So you've seen my pugs pulling me wherever they want to go?

Just glad you didn't mention the missus, the leash and my gimp mask - then I'd be concerned

I'm assuming (as I couldn't possibly know) that if we signed Maja then we'd have let a striker who's a huge earner like Assombalonga leave on the sort of deals we were getting offered today before pulling the plug when we realised we couldn't sign another striker. I predict that the financials of signing Maja and then selling Assombalonga would have been a pretty significant cut to our budget.

I have to say it’s so disappointing that the majority has been led by idiot boys like randy sandwiches who only like to stir trouble under every circumstance. Grow a set and make up your own mind. We’re going up .....

Just bothered myself to scour my posts to see who I had the £100 bet with and as you obviously know - IT WAS YOU!!!!!

hahaha - what a knob you are

Possibly but I don't believe that's why we didn't sign Maja.  Don't get me wrong, we've clearly got players on ridiculous contracts.  Ridiculous relative to their ability and ridiculous for us as a Championship club.  I think there are other things at play however not that I can prove it of course! :)

I think he's had a few drinks perhaps.  I wouldn't take anything to heart and I wouldn't make equally impolite posts.  Better to leave it and then if you're both still raging tomorrow absolute rip each other's heads off on here so we can all enjoy it.

I take nothing to heart on here mate and I'm certainly not raging (Jesus if Pulis resigns tomorrow it could be the missus's 2nd lucky day this year), I've also had a few drinks - I just think if someone makes a personal attack its fair game for retorts - yes I'm being impolite and yes you're right if you're suggesting I'm lowering my usual high standards.

Theres no need to do any head ripping tomorrow - he needs to be at work to earn that £100 he owes to a charity of my choice and I'm not going to be nasty to a charitable person now am I?

But don't rip each other's heads off in the SmogDane fashion.

Thank goodness that another SKY sponsored transfer window is finished. We are fifth, 7 points off second with a game in hand. Leeds pay Norwich and we play WBA. We have a great squad. Let’s get back to football.

With reference to cutting the cloth and GS bad decisions i had made similar statements in another post. We are basically tailoring the club to suit our business plan, that being a Championship club. I don’t see it as a problem as long as we see decent football.

During the transfer window it was revealed today that Pulis newly assembled recruitment team had made a fundamental mistake interpreting requirements which was only revealed late into the transfer closing window. A spokesperson stated having dispatched scouts with knowledge of local language to Newcastle they had indeed succeeded in finding several mingers but nothing that suggested racy. The error was only revealed when a tea lady pointed out the mistake that “ pacey wingers” and “ racy mingers” were not one of the same. Over to you Steve...

    • Alan Nixon saying Randolph may have to be sold to raise funds in Jan. West Ham are among this said to be interested.
    • Yes we have noticed buddy. 🤣🤣 You deserved a medal for last season you were the strongest in the league. Held everyone else up all season.   😁
    • Gestede lent them to Britt stating "as long as he gives me them back soon"
    • Well I'm pleased with the result. From all accounts we missed a fair few sitters again. So it's not just Britt. However, it sounds like we played a decent game. Charlton are a competent side. Granted they have issues with injuries at the moment. But then again so do we. So to come out on top is a big lift. I am well happy that the youngsters took their chance. This is exactly what we want. Hungry, work hard lads who are going to give their all for the duration of the game. Good result. certainly one we needed and the table looks more palatable now. Hopefully we can keep it going. Well done Boro. Keep battling and we will get out of this mess.
    • Another refreshing thing about today was that players showed the right emotions when they didn't convert chance....no cheesy grins...Walker actually thumped pitch in frustration when he realised he had delayed too long and Tav had head in hands.....but they both got on with it afterwards and made sure we kept possession when we needed to.....and fair play to Pears for being a virtual spectator for 75 minutes and still producing a couple of good saves.....and we are getting the points from the teams we need to be getting the points from......we might not have turned the corner, but the fog has cleared enough for it to be visible would settle for a point against Forest...but that would be a bonus....though Millwall showed that if you go at them with speed, they can be upset.....
