Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

He only played because Pulis saw him as versatile.. right back, left back.. I like him but 20mil is 20mil.

Other than a short period in September/October when Pulis put him on the bench, Fry played pretty much every game until the last few when he was injured.  Coincidentally, our other two young players also took a break around that time after starting the season although their breaks were a lot longer than Fry's.

Ayala isn't the same player he was 4 years ago and performs short of that level.  Flint is no more than a big ok defender at this level who is supposedly dangerous from set pieces.  I'd have picked Fry ahead of either of them last season.  He even managed to be a better right back than Shotton was.  £20m is £20m and if that's what they end up offering then no doubt we will accept but we'll have a worse squad without him in it.

West Ham have tonight sold Sam Byram to an unnamed Championship club for £750k! It’s very unlikely it’ll be us but what an absolute bargain at that price. 

Its sounding like its Nottingham Forest on Twitter.

I think it's Forest.

I mentioned Byram a few weeks ago. He was on loan with them last season and there have been strong rumours since his loan ended about him heading back. For £750K that is a great bit of business! Shame we are skint at the moment otherwise we should be all over that!

Maybe Woodgate has decided Howson, Shotton and Spence are cover enough at Right back? Likewise on the left Friend, Coulson and Reading. He did say he would play young players if he felt they were good enough.

Must be the injury that has lead to a lower price?

Could well be. Plus West Ham have been active in bringing in players this summer, so he may be part of a fringe group of players making way.

Yeah could be clearing some space on their wage bill quite possibly.

Saw on twitter he was apparently on 25k so yeah, may well just be cutting their losses on that.

Probably out of our reach then right at this moment in time although I think the club have got to be focusing on other positions anyway ?

Fry might have no interest in leaving but he might not have a choice if we accept a bid. Might reconsider then.

As for Howson at RB. This might not be view shared by my fellow boro fans but i liked Howson at RB. He got up and down that flank very wel, his delivery was better than Shottons from there. He scored and got assists from that position. And i think he said he enjoyed playing there and will getter better more he plays there. 

Would prefer someone specialist there but if needs must am happy with him there.

Oh it looks like am not alone in being ok with Howson at RB. Thanks for not leaving me isolated boys&girls and showing me support. Thought l I would be like a striker in a pulis team with that view.....alone.

He was a little exposed yesterday, mainly because of a lack of positional sense from Tav. Better teams will punish us if that is going to be the right side. I suppose the circumstances we find ourselves in we are probably have to use what resources we have as best we can. Looking forward though I believe all 3 of our current right back options are all out of contract after this season so unless Spence comes up trumps we will probably look at a genuine Right back next year.

Turns out it isn’t Forest. I know West Brom have been linked but nobody seems to have a concrete answer.

Seem that Huddersfield have loaned Grabara from Liverpool. I was hoping he would be our replacement for Randolph if we end up selling him. The lad has got unreal potential. Think he’s going to be next seasons keeper of the season in the championship.

    • What do you mean by you installed the Win8 iso onto a flash drive? The iso is meant to be burned to a DVD-rom.  It should be an executable file for a flash drive.
    • In no particular order:   Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood!  
    • Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB.   I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now 
    • God, I couldn't even pick just three.  Lots to choose from over the years, including some of the great choices selected above 👍 Hendrie's two against Luton, bye bye Ayresome but hello Premier League and The Riverside.  Ravanelli at Wembley 96/97, it looked like we were going to do it finally but then we didn't.  Festa, a whole week later, at Old Trafford against Chesterfield, when it looked like we'd avoided an absolute catastrophe only for history to repeat itself.  Rav's last minute penna winner against Villa at the beginning of the week of destiny.  The whole first 5 mins of the Liverpool League Cup semi final in 97/98.  The first few minutes of the second half against Oxford in the same season.  Festa's last minute equaliser at Southampton when we were down to 9 men for a 3-3 draw in the 98/99 season and Brian Deane's goal to put us 3-0 up at Man Utd a few weeks later - I think that was the last game Man Utd lost that season before winning the treble - "We're gonna win the league", well maybe not.  Boksic twice up at St James park against the Geordies a couple of seasons later.  01/02 season against Man Utd in the cup, hardly any bugger there because there was some argument about the ticket pricing and the fact that it was a lunchtime kick off on the telly, two goals in the last 5 mins to win it, hurrah!  We had some good times against Man Utd back then for whatever reason.  Speaking of which, the following season at home against them on Boxing day, all three goals were decent but the Job one at the end to clinch it because of the second or two it took for Maccarone to head the ball across to him was nice.  Same sort of reason but earlier in that season, against the Mackems at home and Nemeths second goal (our third) when he kind of ran through on his own to score in front of the North Stand - I think it was just the sense of anticipation really. 03/04 season in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.  The first 6 or 7 mins as a whole but I was partly hysterical throughout the entire game really when I think about it.  It was ours to lose after that start and unfortunately we seemed to experts in finding ways to do just that up until that point.  Same season, scoring twice in injury time maybe to get a 3-3 draw at home against Leicester and another win at Old Trafford, Juninho scoring twice with his head! and Job getting the winner after Man Utd came back to level.  How did Man Utd win so much back then when we used to give them a going over on a regular basis?  Weird, football, isn't it?  04/05 season, not a goal but Schwarzer saving that penalty at Man City in injury time on the last day of the season to get us into Europe again has to be right up there.  The following season has to be the European goals already mentioned above, the games as a whole were mental but scoring late on to win not just once but twice is about as crazy as it gets.  Humping Man Utd (again) and Chelsea was also a lot of fun. After that point things got darker and those amazing moments never seemed to come around, at least not for me anyway.  There were always odd games or whatever but we were in decline and you could feel it.  We had some good games under Mowbray and obviously we were in the hunt a couple of times during seasons but we always fell away.  I think you're probably waiting until the 14/15 season for some more great moments - Leadbitter's freekick at Huddersfield was fantastic, Bamford's goal at Derby and the own goal at Norwich, the play off games against Brentford.  I stopped going away from home by this point though so most of those weren't experienced in the same way, the home play off game of course was though.  Following season, both games against Brighton had goals which got me going and against Derby over Xmas with the two goals in two minutes.  Nugent against Hull and Forshaw against Reading, mental. Probably loads I've missed out as well.  I think I just enjoy us scoring goals in any circumstances 😀
    • In order of age: 1. Ravenelli's in the FA cup quarterfinal that guarnteed we were into our first ever FA cup semi. 2. Zenden's penalty in the league cup final 3. Nugent's goal against Hull
