Imagine the scenes in Boro if Shotton, Saville and Gestede all leave in less than 3 days.

Wow, Charlton fans really hate the owner don't they?

I guess we should really appreciate big Stevie G after all.

This has all the making of our best transfer window in years, it also has the making for extreme disappoint. Life of supporting the Boro ey

If true that Gibson didn't want to leave, can anyone actually explain the thought process behind selling him and using the money raised to buy Flint and Saville? Looking for an actual explanation, is there some sort of FFP rule whereby we had to raise a certain amount of cash but the actual profit margin didn't matter?

I actually can't comprehend why we would do that?

Saville is shocking, to think we've paid roughly £7/8m for him is madness. Look at players people get for peanuts that are way better than him. Norwood £2m to Sheffield was a prime example. Pulis bought utter garbage, only one with any potential is McNair.

I don’t think that Saville or any other player for that matter is in any way responsible for the amount of money paid for him. I don’t think he is worth 8m but he’s not the worst player I’ve ever seen either

I can think of roughly 1.4 million reasons if the rumours of Pulis taking an 8% cut of transfers is true

They are very uncomplimentary towards Middlesbrough. I wonder how many have ever been to the area.

I lived in Charlton for a few years. I wouldn’t say it’s a downgrade to move up here at all!

It's because whenever Boro is mentioned on the news, they show a picture of the ICI. 

 

And that's about as much interaction with the town that 95% of away fans have

Gibson did want to leave. It’s a complicated situation. Not all the Gibson’s get on.  Made the situation tricky.

Tbf when I travel to away games I try to have as little interaction with the locals too.  Lol

Yeah there's a lot of aggro between Steve, Mel and Debbie ?

I can 100% guarantee that it was SG that was responsible for us selling Gibson.

Steve and Ben don’t have an issue.

Gibson’s agent was touting him around for weeks before the story broke. No problem with that as he wanted to stay in the Prem. The problem was that he chose the wrong club he could have gone to Southampton where he would have been much better off but chose Burnley. I did hear that the decision was influenced by the fees his agent wanted.

Looking like we are making good progress, at long last some younger pacey player's. 

Get three /four more and it will be encouraging

    • They have offered him a new contract this week to try and stop him leaving. Be interesting to see what happens with that.
    • Let's not go crazy, howson was man of the match more for his defensive performance, he made zero successful dribbles and his pass success rate was only 58%, only morsey and bettinelli had worse. Our players always get better when they're injured!
    • EG have ran an article on Diedhou still not signing a new deal with Bristol City... Could have legs that one. 
    • 1: Team and formation? Same same. Can't change after such a showing. I'd like to see Tav central with Johnson on the wing but I can't drop any of Sav, Morsy and Howson after wednesday. 2: Is it good to change a winning team? Depends on circumstances but generally no. 3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy? Think he will give it a bit of a rest and avoid a card. 4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance? Yes. He'll bag a brace. 5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... It's certainly looking better now. 6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard? Not even a contest. Maiden all the way. 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? I think we can, but I'm afraid we'll just miss out. 8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)? No idea. But my guess is Kebano.
