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.

The dream of a Hugill return is still on.

Didn't they want like £6m or something daft like that?

No idea. I know it's all about return on investment and all that, but if they are selling Byram for less than £1m, it would take some brass *** to try to get anywhere close to £6m for Hugill

If howson is the rb maybe we will be sticking with the 352 where he actually did alright, or 343.

That's your worst attempt yet mate ?

I do like selling Britt and playing him against Luton though ?

Our club is crap.  I hope we do get some kind of investment.  It is what it is

If your priority is us getting investment and spending money, then you completely don't get what our club is about. I would rather stay in the championship for ten years with ups and downs and keep our identity under Gibson than sell out to a foreign investor.

The need for instant success is ridiculous

Keep your hair on man.

 

I never once said 'its my priority'. I have been following Boro since Ayresome park and have experienced pain before.  As for keeping our identity, by that you mean the feast to famine of how we have been operating for a good number of years.  Well I disagree, I don't want my club to do that.  I also didn't mention a foreign investor, I also never said I want instand success.  Wrong end of stick and manipulating words come to mind.  Out club is a joke at the moment, I'm actually glad woody is head coach, I can't wait for the season to start but the fact that we are having to sell before we can buy (AGAIN) is a tad frustrating, I'm a project manager and we have a thing called 'lessons learned' after a project.  The club need to give it a go as we fail over and over again.  

 

But yeah let's keep doing it mate, as long as we keep our identity, we won't have a bloody club if we carry on like this.

Is he though? Or is he just trying to create a sustainably ran club that fits within FFP in a reality without parachute payments

    • I mean those are some pretty dreadful collective ratings for the players. I think it tells a pretty accurate story. Individually, players were not at the races and didn't give a toss on Saturday. But the changes to get us back into the game were ultimately more diabolical in terms of taking action. Don't quite know why the Gazette have decided to go along with the whole 'more forwards but somehow still no chances' piece that Woody came out with. You don't automatically solve your creative problems with more forwards and you certainly don't solve them with strikers like Britt and Gestede.
    • Just want to say good luck tomorrow lads, you have a busy week ahead. Hopefully will be watching it all play out on BT Sport.  
    • End of this season players will be leaving  has their contracts come to an end. Other players will also be leaving wanting away and will be fetching hardly any money to the kitty. Woodgate will more than likely stay on because he is one of the cheapest about and although he has managerial status, seriously the backroom boys will still be running the show. Possible drop down a division losing loads of turnstile funds. I reckon in one word I would say the coffers will be empty and "Survival" is the medium/long term vision here.  
    • I don’t understand how people can say that Gibson is not a footballing man. He’s been involved in the game for nearly three and a half decades. If you think he’s not a good footballing man well fair enough that’s your opinion but he is definitely time served at this point which qualifies him as a footballing man in my opinion.
    • I have to say I echo what @Changing Times and @p_mards have said in regards to appointments in key areas. In my opinion the biggest threat to having a consistent long-term vision is Gibson himself. He is not a footballing man and thus the decisions he makes are by and large poor. The sooner he relinquishes a bit of control over the footballing decisions the better. Getting a director of football into the club would be a good start. As we would then have a football person making football decisions.
