I think if were all being honest this is a very realistic valuation for fry, however the transfer market is in no way a realistic reflection of players values, if Bristol got 20 or so for Webster then we should be demanding 25 for fry.

Welcome to the forum CB let's hope Boro do as well as we are in transfers!

JW said he does not see Tav as a winger but a CM i believe,

Yeah as do I honestly but having him still gives us that option of using him as a back up wide man, if we loan him out we've got Johnson and Browne as our only actual wide players

Think a loan would be good for Tav' get him some game time he'll currently struggle to get with us.

Why, yet again, have we left it so late to sort out our wings, something that we’ve been needing to fix for (it feels like) the last 10 transfer windows!?

A season's loan at Barnsley might be the making of Tavernier to be honest. I'm a fan of his, and he's never let the team down when he's played, but if he can't get into the team ahead of the others we have, he might need to impress Woodgate from elsewhere. Wouldn't sell him on a permanent though, unless it was £7m or so. 

Understand what you are indicating there Tom but for me a big no would prefer his talent here with us not elsewhere.

Besides I am sure he will be involved in the cup game next week and it will be up to him to put on a show that ensures that he remains in Woodgate's thinking

i think Tavernier is right up there with Fry when it comes to potential.  i really hope he stays here.  the advantage Fry has  with our current squad is the players he needs to compete with to get first team starts.

Hmmmm not so sure, if utilised properly and encouraged to do so then I honestly think Coulson might fit that bill. Appreciate that many others may disagree but hey I disagree with most about Adam Clayton:classic_sleep:

I don't think you can compare this transfer window to others previous to this, for the first time in a while we have attacking players interested in coming to boro. So where one attempt has failed I think there will be several other "plates spinning"  for want of a  better phrase.

I agree. And judging by the players we've been linked with this window it's not like we haven't been trying to fill these places either

totally agree. Think selling Tav would be criminal at this point in a transfer window. I do think for 20mil + with a b.gibbo shaped incentive coming in return for the season, wouldn't be a bad deal

    • This to me feels very much like the Mowbray era of the type of job he asked to do, get rid of the big wages in players like  Britt for example bring in players who can do the same or better job for less and get competent coaching staff in who know what they are doing. I think personally Gibson trying to replicate the way he got promotion last time by getting someone in to balance the books and then have one big push towards promotion with the next manager.    If i am right, will that work? time will tell. 
    • Yeah,it still goes on,massive money changing hands there, Best of luck trying to drive past one on a narrow road,its like they own the rd & you have no business on it whatsoever, I tried it once and i threw it over a ditch!! Harder than it looks to follow to contours & falls on the rd.
    • As far as planning goes the Golden Thread was going to be how Boro would do things going forwards but the thought, logic and implementation of it was farcical. Gibson may (or may not) have wanted Pulis to stay on but it was impossible for Pulis to stay, there was already a Pulis out banner, social media meltdowns, inflatable dinosaurs and our season card sales were going down faster than Sunderland. That MFC are not very good at planning and that their Woodgate strategy (like Southgate) was flawed and amateurish beyond belief I think is a given. With a distinct lack of personnel changes in senior roles since at the club since (indeed one less) I doubt a new plan would have much more success. It is possibly better to have a wily astute manager who can source his own players via his own contacts etc. and set up a team to do what he believes will garner a promotion bid rather than try again to implement a new dawning under those given constraints and maybe to his credit SG has accepted that. The "personal circumstances" I think was pretty clear, people talk about Steve Gibson's lack of it yet you eloquently proved why he has far more of it than anyone on here. If it was that easy we would all be doing it and so would every Club in the country, I struggle why you failed to grasp that but then I have to admit that I struggle generally with a lot of your thought processes. I guess we are just wired differently. The "future" with any Championship Manager is around twelve months at best (I think the average is actually less) because the demand for instant success doesn't permit for longer. Fans inevitably get restless and want a new one and they want it now, or worse they didn't want him in the first place (Woodgate, Pulis, Monk etc. etc. just with ourselves). A plan with a particular style of football and type of playing personnel etc. is a great ideal and I'm not against it but that brings us back as to who implements the plan and for that and Boro see Woodgate and the Golden Thread. Steve Gibson has made many mistakes, some absolute howlers and his seemingly narcissistic style of control hasn't ingratiated himself very well with those under 45 years old (let alone those of us older) but if you think he is bad then I guess you didn't live through the Charlie Amer era. As Mogga would likely say "it is what it is". As fans we have two choices, get behind the team and make the best of it or walk away and watch Champions League on the telly instead of Championship at the Riverside on a cold wet Tuesday which is a typical Boro trait when times get tough. That's not a dig at anyone, I refused to renew my season card after Pulis and the Club hoped that myself and others would renew just on the basis that Pulis had gone, it worked for some but others held their nerve waiting to see who was the successor. When it was Woodgate I walked away for a multitude of reasons and that as much as anything was another reason why the announcement of his appointment was delayed for fear of losing even more Season card renewals. I have no doubt that some may decide to walk away now and if successful many will come back in time.
