People will be surprised at who they are. I'll refrain from names as its quite fresh and end up burning the source (sounds suspect i know lol. Not trying to be cryptic). 

Saville.... Flint....Britt

Not bothered about Saville, certainly not bothered about Flint, but i'd be surprised to see Britt leave unless we're somehow replacing him with similar.

If the plan is to rely on Fletcher/Gestede well, that's not good.

He wasn't in todays gallery, no. He could have been doing first day tests or something though, so I think tomorrow will be one to watch out for.

I wonder if he is actually there... was today due to be his first day?

Whatever my opinion on all things Boro I couldn't see any scenario where the plan would be to rely on Fletcher and Gestede ?

Ayala and Friend would be relatively surprising, as would Clayton I suppose. Just because they feel like they're part of the furniture by now. As soon as he makes an appearance, Friend will have played under 7 Boro managers (including caretakers). Not many recent players can say that! 

The first two should have been out the door before now so I don't know if I'd be surprised or not if they left.  I can't see them being cut price however as I doubt they'd be worth much anyway.

I know it's been mentioned elsewhere, but Bristol City have signed Kalas on a permanent deal. They've played a blinder to upgrade from Flint for essentially £3m.

If people are going to be surprised then I'd say Howson, Clayton and one of Ayala/Flint.  Maybe Shotton if he's on daft money.  They are all probably on decent wages and a few of them probably wouldn't command especially big fees if we were willing to let them go to get their wages off the books.  I'm not sure how many players leaving here would surprise me but surprised at a cut price deal then you'd have to think those lot and perhaps Assombalonga?

They could have just put a shirt on a traffic cone and saved themselves even more money.

    • This is what I would want to see. More of a 3-5-2 which has worked for us at times this season. I feel like we need Howson in midfield as our midfielders are just useless and lack any leadership, he can at least make a tackle. Saville to start if we want more balance or Tav if we wanna go for it. Roberts behind the striker and just let him run at them on the counter attack, maybe him and Britt could get something going. Let Spence and Coulson offer our pace and width as wingsback.                                          Stojanovic    Spence - Fry - Moukoudi - Friend/Shotton - Coulson                          Howson - McNair - Saville/Tav                                       Roberts                                               Britt/Fletch                             Not that it matters like, don't have much hope for this game.
    • Half-way through Mad Men and just started series 5 of The Bureau, both excellent. 
    • Warnock's had a good shuffle of the pack now. That's the desperate hope that his selections will finally click and maybe lady luck will smile on us too.

    • At this point I'd usually go check out how Millwall were doing and figure out how we could beat them. But whilst Stoke wasn't exactly a masterclass, the last two games in particular have left me bereft of confidence in this side. This squad isn't built out of League One quality players and yet the lack of quality coming from players at the moment makes it look like they are. Our passing and movement is so key to the way Warnock wants us to play but I just don't think anyone is really tackling this task together right now. We see some individual quality on display, particularly from Roberts and Britt at times in the last few games, but it's just not coming together as a unit. The final ball or decision is made too late, too strong or too weak. I agree with some others that I don't think that effort is necessarily the issue... it's just quality when and where it matters. We don't have a single player in the squad right now who's capable of planting a ball on a player's noggin on a consistent basis from a dead ball, never mind when in the flow of play. Still, the team? Hopefully Spence is back... this is what comes to mind. Stojanovic Spence Fry Friend Coulson Tav Howson Saville Roberts Fletcher Britt
