Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Recommended Posts

We missed a trick with Dijksteel , we should have given him shirt number 02 and asked a major telecoms provider to chip in with his wages. 

Or maybe Mr Whippy could sponsor our new striker if we give him the 99 shirt

The striker is the least important of the positions but we are still looking.

I'd say goalkeeper was least important personally.

Says who?

Club source.  Must stress its least likely position to get filled but you never know where you will end up with targets etc.  Striker would mean we missed out on wide player and fletcher would be used out wide.

Meaning least important of the 3 positions we are actively looking for

I think the 32 Red multiple sponsorship deals and preferred client views is an issue for the EFL rather than Boro. 

Not that boro shouldn’t wonder why their main shirt sponsor is also main sponsor of our rivals, but we were not the first to take the gold of 32Red so I can assume boro happy just to get the most gold for shirt rights.

Sadly enough, just feels rather wrong that they're now funding a rival players wage deal as an FFP loop hole. No wonder Gibbos spitting blood about it

Last season has shown that clubs can circumnavigate FFP with a bit of creative accounting. 

If teams can outspend us then we are really up against it, we just have to be better at recruiting than them and find hidden gems. But the way things stand we can't compete financially with clubs like Derby at the moment.

I don't think he has delivered what we expected, however in mitigation he was used all over the place by Pulis and there are rumours he is homesick. Sometimes moves just don't work out. 

Completely agree. Saville is the current boo boy, he seems to have replaced Downing. Granted he didn't set the world alight last season, and certainly didn't justify the fee, but he isn't a bad player. You don't go from scoring 10 for a struggling side to being a bad player in the space of a few months. He was used atrociously by Pulis last season so I'd be more inclined to judge him after he's had a run in the team this season. Also he didn't settle well when he first signed, but has now bought a house and his mrs has set up a business in the north east. Give the lad a chance, he's still 26 and still has his best years ahead of him.

Full house at training.

That's odd, seeing as we're apparently an absolute shambles of a club who are hell bent on selling anyone of any value and will be lucky to be able to put out a 5-a-side team against Brentford.

He got 4 goals last season from a defensive team, and only joined us a few games in and didnt play every game (I think 28 starts and 6 sub appearances) - he still finished out top scoring midfielder. Not sure what people expect tbh.

We have more than proven that throwing money at something does not guarantee success.

    • 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.
    • The preparation for a specific match is probably a bit more important than we think. That is also what separates the good managers from the bad. The ability to drill into the team how to beat an upcoming opponent. We were woefully prepared under Woodgate and that has changed dramatically under a more proven manager. Granted he also gets outsmarted or gets his tactics all wrong, but I'm not going to deny that a lack of proper preparation with the team had an adverse effect on how we dealt with Birmingham. It was a woeful performance though so I'm going to split it 50/50 between inconsitency and lack of preparation.
    • we are inconsistent but we have Big J back in midfield.  first game back and it was like he never went away motm by a mile. when some of the younger lads are struggling to pass 5 yards he gets the ball and slips his markers carries the ball miles, plays in key passes making it look easy. he surely has lifted squad coming back into the team.  results will improve now. wouldnt be surprised to go on another winning run now. think we'll beat norwich to. they rode their luck last time out. we'll have them this time. blackburn have fell away we can win that one to.
    • Need to get back to winning ways at home so massive game and certainly no sentiments for former Boro associates. We are hot and cold with results so need to be hot, hot, hot again!
