Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Is that the gazette already writing this season off then, already looking at next year ?

From the Gazette 

"Some big earners leaving next summer will free up space on the teamsheet and in the wage bill for Academy graduates or young, hungry players may chime with the new strategic planning to make the club sustainable" 

It's virtually copy and pasting articles from the Southgate era.

Come this time next season I predict 90% of the first team squad as it stands today won't be in a boro shirt

That in itself doesn't bother me, just hope we can replace them with better players eventually.

I think the shift in club philosophy is that academy players need to be given a chance to play first team football... the whole remit of the academy was / is to find enough quality players that when we sell they ultimately help self sustain the club... that however in my opinion is a dream that very rarely becomes reality

Not a lot to spill mate. Thoughts are that it will get a lot worse before it gets better. Not info just personal opinion.

Damn, I hoped you had something positive but .....

Yeah the reality is we'd probably end up being like Crewe used to be, a lower league feeder club. 

Gibson might be happy with that though if we were full of local lads.

Got the feeling that if MB goes it won't be until after our window closes. Then it will be a cheap loan or a very cheap buy option. Every one buying seems to accept we're skint every one selling thinks we still have money hidden under the sofa.

I believe the window for permanent and loan signings in this country closes at same time this year, estonpidge.

Rest of Europes transfer window is 31st August though i think. Thus if MB goes after our window closes we can't replace him even with a loan until Jan (unless we sign a free agent).

I think burnley are after a danish talent at right back. Joachim Mähle. Will be a good signing. But might make it easiest to strike a deal for Fry; cash plus Lowton.

I meant he will leave as, not we'll replace him with

On the topic of Braithwaite... has anyone watched the training video uploaded today, know its only small clips but he looks a couple of levels above anyone else. If only we could facilitate keeping him somehow, as he really has the talent when playing in a good footballing side. 

He's probably happier to be back now that Hugill and Pulis have gone. Maybe he's waiting until we play Wigan so he can get his revenge on Hugill, haha.

    • Please put everyone right then Mr Noitall with your wealth of knowledge 😉
    • You'd be picking fights too with the likes of Woodgate and Downing causing discord in the dressing room.
    • We’ve got the following problems -  1 - a manager with no long term attachment to the club. He will try to do his best but ultimately it’s not the same knowing he won’t be here next season.    2 - a squad of players who are coming to the end of their time with boro. Some are on loan and some are moving on. Reality being that they don’t care about the shirt and will leave boro when we go down anyway. Can a manager who isn’t attached to the club long term motivate players who are about to leave? The last two games would suspect not.    3 - our style of play has again changed with a new manager. Evidence would suggest that it isn’t suited to our players. (We can’t cross or score from set pieces).     4 - coming out of COVID is always going to be tricky, but we are going down without a whimper. It literally feels like De Ja Vu form the prem season when we played Swansea today. Just waiting for that moment to come where the players are revved up and raring to go. Alas, it didn’t come.    5- the final problem we have is that teams around us are picking up points. They look like they want it more and it just pains me to see us shaft it each time we play a game. 
    • I was going to suggest Vatican City FC, but seems that they only have a national team and the head honcho supports Argentina....not that its helping them much either
