The Transfer Thread.

I hate to say this, but are the fans visibly showing that they want Pulis out?

 

If not, then maybe it's time we did.

How about Pulis walking... That's what we want.

 

That will come

 

As I said last night, I don’t think there’s a hope in hells chance that he will quit whilst there is a possibility that he might receive his big fat promotion bonus.

 

We will see after he has played his hometown club.

Of course it won't.

Basically sounds like the club are skint but why not say that instead of promising to sign attacking players? Looks like it will be all downhill from here now!

 

This is my gripe. If we are skint (and I still can’t believe we are with all the incomings we’ve had through TV money, parachute payments and player sales over the last number of years) just let the fans know. I’d be a lot more inclined to get behind the team with full knowledge of the situation. As it is, we continue to be lied to by being told we are going after attacking players in order to sell tickets.

Here's the thing. The EG are simply a play thing for the club. If not they would ask serious questions. So when the EG puts out the interest in certain players they are clearly lying if the club is broke. So the club is basically lying. To the fans.

 

If the EG were telling the truth and we were in for certain players then we aren't skint and TP (Gibsons chosen one AND spokesman for the club during press conferences) is lying. To the fans.

 

Ultimately the club are lying to us. For their own good.

 

I'm not sure an institution should treat it's paying public and followers in such a way.

The club are skint, people have to realise that. I think if we had managed to move Gestede on, we would have maybe bought an attacker in, that fell through early in the day so the best bet was to go and have a few pints.

 

Millwall didn’t want to sign Gestede because they didn’t want to strengthen a rival. ;)

That’s an interesting point.

Pathetic.. Absolutely pathetic.

 

Everyone involved in running the club can take a long walk off a ***ing short pier.

I just wish they'd have told us! I agree with you though, they were obviously trying to move players out to free some cash up... considering we're apparently making losses of up to 20 million a year!

 

Haha! I'll admit I was quite furious that Gestede refused to go! Also amazed that someone else wanted to take him :')

Similar levels of interest to the points made on Wednesday night that he would be leaving today if we didn’t sign anyone yesterday.

 

I won’t hold my breath...

Imagine being able to take off from work and go to the pub because you've decided you're not going to try today.

 

Nearly all our rivals above and below improved their squads whilst Tony and his staff failed to find and persuade literally anyone to join the club. Worse yet his boss seems to be fine with this?

 

Real encouragement for the fans there.

It's so sad that one man (and maybe a few in the background) can sap all of the joy and happiness that you had for a particular thing. I can take frustration on varying scales on differing weeks but under his stewardship I can't even bring myself to listen to the matches, never mind attend them. I have found myself looking for excuses to do something else.

Assuming the landlord isn't a member on here, and none of the OneBoro members were in the same pub. I would have gone nuts with him had he turned up on deadline day to the pub I was drinking in knowing the huge gaps in the squad. And I'd have ensured everyone on here knew where he was too. Pathetic

I can quite believe we're making losses like that with some of the contracts we have players on, some that don't even make the bench...

    • He'd be on a free as he left Forest in October so that's no surprise. He also scored against us in April...
    • Alexander Milosevic according to someone on another forum but that would be January not in the summer.
    • 7 definitely has to be the target! Have a feeling we will fluff one of the home games and get an unexpected win against Swansea or Preston.
    • Is it possible Gibson might be coming in on loan to replace Ayala who might be sold in January and we will then look to replace Ayala more long term in summer?
    • Since losing at home to WBA 1-0 in the final minute, on the 19th October, the Boro have played 9 games losing 2 of those games, we now sit 4 points above the relegation zone with a better GD than the bottom 4 teams, things are certainly looking better than a few weeks back Swansea, sitting in 11th place on 31 points are winless in the last 5 games, Boro are faring better with 2 wins, 2 draws & a loss over the same period The academy players who have been introduced this season have played their part, but the main area we are struggling with, which needs to be addressed in January, is that of a goalscorer Pears is deputising well in goal, Spence has come in & done a commanding job, Coulson who has performed so well this season, along with some of the experienced players, McNair continues to improve & excel in his midfield role, not only making that excellent pass leading up to the penalty but converted the spot kick himself, Ayala a commanding centre half, who, IMHO, is a must to be kept & offered a new improved contract  Are we slowly seeing the Boro turn the corner? Are we starting to gel as a uit    The 1st fixture away to Swansea City was on the 12th September 1925, Boro losing 4-0 Swansea City v Boro fixture will be the 47th fixture in South Wales between the 2 teams with the following record: Won 19 Drew 10 Lost 17 Goals scored - 94 Goals against - 83 Did you know: 18th December 1926 Boro 7 Swansea 1 & 21st March 1959 Boro 6 Swansea 2 both George Camsell & Brian Clough scored 4 goals each After signing for Middlesbrough on a wage of £25 a week, Mel Nurse made his debut against Grimsby Town in a 4–3 victory. Within a week of joining the Boro he was made captain, during a night out in his time at the Boro, Mel Nurse was once mistaken for train robber Ronnie Biggs, he was pulled over by police & questioned before his real identity was established   Some players who played for both clubs: Bill Harris - Born in Swansea & signed for them when leaving schoo but never made any 1st team appearances, signed for Middlesbrough & between, 1954 - 65, played 378 games, scoring 72 goals Mel Nurse - 256 appearances for Swansea scoring 19 goals, 113 for Swansea scoring 8 goals Phil Boersma - 47 appearances for the Boro scoring 3 goals, 18 for Swansea scoring one goal John Mahoney 77 appearances for the Boro scoring 1 goal, 110 for Swansea scoring one goal Dimi Konstantopoulos - Played 4 games on loan in season 2008-09, played 98 games for the Boro between 2013-2019 Danny Graham - 33 appearances for the Boro, scoring 7 goals, 54 appearances for Swansea scoring 15 goals Leroy Lita - 78 appearances for the Boro scoring 20 goals, 18 for Swansea scoring 2 goals Marvin Emnes - 141 appearances for the Boro, scoring 24 goals , 11 appearances over 2 different seasons scoring 3 goals, one being a match winner v Cardiff Kyle Naughton - 15 appearances on loan for the Boro, no goals, 151 for Swansea scoring 3 goals Connor Roberts - A season long loan from Swansea last only one loan appearance for the Boro, his contract was terminated & he returned to Swansea, 66 games for Swansea, scoring 5 goals
