We're definitely interested but can't imagine us signing him without either Gestede or Fletcher leaving 

Pretty sure we’ve been trying to offload Gestede for a while now but no one wants to pay the fee for him - unsurprisingly, of course..

The 1 constant in links with Boro this window is the strikers we've been linked with are all costing 3-4 million I don't remember any links with loan moves for striker targets the opposites true of the wide target Kent/Diangana even Boye as it turned out are all loan targets and judging by the Carter-Vickers link if a CB comes in it's probably going to be a loan.

The best price I could find for Toney in the press was 2.5-3 million pounds, Frey's price has dropped to 3-4 million euros it seems that we've allocated alot of the budget to letting Woodgate sign his own striker is my interpretation of what's going on.

I'm fine with loans bulking us up at CB/Wing positions so long as they're Diangana/Vickers types and we don't get too far down a loan list to Sims/Brown types. Dijksteel and Diangana are the 2 keys for me they're the straight in the first XI signings a CB would be nice Woodgate getting 'his' striker in is something Monk and Pulis were allowed to do as long as they're not stupid money and on 30k a week Im all for it.

I suppose we cant tell what is going to happen from a contracts point of view but Ayala, Friend, Shotton and Howson are all out of contract after this season. If they all leave our only CB with experience is Fry and he is possibly seen as a saleable asset at some point. I trust Woodgate to know what he needs as a CB and whether Stubbs / Woods will be ready. Ideally I would like a permanent signing at CB and at least 1 RB permanent. As has been said earlier on the thread if we cant shift Gestede / Fletcher I cant see us signing another CF on a permanent,  A couple of pacy front men on loans may be the way we go. Ideally if you are trying to build something you want to put the foundations in permanently but our financials probably mean we have to do it piecemeal. We definitely need a few bodies in though and a few of the kids to develop on loan to reduce the need for new signings again next year.

Nobody even wants him for free mate, let alone paying a fee.

In terms of contracts... I don't see us renewing any outfield player over 32 for anymore than 1yr.

Surely get Ayala tied down for another 2/3 years, can’t let him go for nothing. And Howson still runs like a player in their prime so I’d imagine we’d be fine giving him another 2 years

Ayala is only 28 though so doesn't fall under the same umbrella of players.

What's your thoughts on the Ivan Toney link?

Does Var come into the championship next season? That may be one reason not to keep Ayala.

If it was £1million up front and £2-3million performance/promotion related reckon we would pay that?

Be interesting to see if that's the case. The Northern Echo seemed to suggest there was some immediate incomings, so seems to be some substance to their article.

It's a bit like Boye. If we shift one on a perm then possible. As I don't see us shifting g a forward I thi k it will not happen.

    • Hi all, just after a bit of help. I'm trying to reset my laptop. It is a fair few years old now and has been through the ringer, a fair few times it has hit the wall and I have managed to fix it by myself, but this one seems beyond my capabilities.  This issue has been going on a while but I'm only just getting round to it since I finally have some free time. When I turn my laptop on, It makes the noise as if it is loading, but I just get a black screen (it is still backlit but nothing ever appears). I have tried the Novo one button reset, which actually brought up a screen for the first time in lord knows how long.  However, no matter what option I choose, it then goes back to a black screen.    Anybody with any ideas at all on how to fix it or what's wrong? I was using it as a media server for Plex before it left so there were a lot of files on there that may have corrupted if that helps diagnose it at all?   Thanks in advance
    • Gazette seem to be suggesting club and JW want him to stay given his influence around the place. I should have added the above post was not my own prediction of who will stay or go but more what Gazette are seemingly suggesting. 
    • The police struggle with their duties during a short spike in crime on a regular day. That, along with the government's long desire to portray the changing face of crime and how we increasingly need to change to fight more digital crime, is going to be a factor in how many coppers we have on the streets to enforce these things. The government has now been forced to accept that enforcement may be needed to keep people indoors, which goes drastically against their ideal distribution of officers. Going significantly against their ideal setup is becoming quite a theme during this pandemic. As I said earlier, this doesn't mean higher levels of lockdown are on the way, what it may mean is that higher levels of enforcement will be dispatched in order to enforce the current lockdown procedures.
    • Why would we want Friend to stay, He was a brilliant player, now he cannot play three games on the spin. 
    • Just catching up on some Gazette articles and it seems picture with the out of contract players is become a bit clearer if Gazette are to be believed Set to stay: Howson & Friend Club want to stay: Ayala Set to leave: Shotton Clayton Johnson & Rudy I think Ayala staying really is 50/50 at moment.
