Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

I think Woodgate has learned from past transfer windows. We are always hearing we are aiming to get 3/4 in coming up to deadline which we invariably fail to do and fans kick off. But by saying we are only likely to get 1 target in then ending up with 3/4 the club will be hailed as heroes. 

The tell is he himself bemoaned a 'thin' squad 6 days ago saying he needed a 'few' in since then we've signed 1 in Dijksteel.

My guess is Vickers is correct we're after a specialist RB that isn't Hutton and a Prem attacking midfielder who can play striker if we only get 1 it'll look par if we get both it'll look good. I think if we get a pacey prem Winger-Striker and a RB we're pretty well covered everywhere except actual CBs but if he believes Friend's genuinely going to be a good LCB we have to go with it.

SDS, it’s Dijksteel at Rockliffe

For all those asking about these 4 players at rockcliffe just before weekend. I have done some digging appears it was bola Browne and 2 premiership loan players, sketchy with details but I believe the

If it's anyone, it may be Kent. It sounded like one we were struggling to get sorted. Which you'd imagine the Kent one would be. But he fits the bill of the type of signing we should be making still.

Bit of update... batted off enquiries for Britt Dael Tav Wing today..  not actively looking to sell though if the offer gets stupid people will be sold. One more is a winger / ST. The other RB will probably be Hutton as he is a free agent so less pressure to get the deal done by tomorrow. We are not being held to Ransom. Refreshing to know we aren't being used as a payday though I still think there will be a twist in the tail.

How bloody hard is it to sign a proper winger? We havent signed a winger thats slotted into our first 11 since we brought bloody Stewart downing back.  And even he was in and out depending on the manager. Let that sink in.

    • Ha! Yes - Warnock doesn't strike me as a "Golden Thread" kind of guy. I guess the idea had to be abandoned once he was brought in. But other clubs have made similar philosophies work for them and I'd hope it is resurrected in the near future. Though maybe, as you say, our chairman and board simply aren't smart enough to see the benefits.  
    • Do you have a link? You probably posted it earlier but I'm very lazy 
    • I think the fact that Bevington left within months of that woodgate press conference and then woodgate was replaced with Warnock a couple of months after that shows that it was likely a difference in philosophy between the chairman and him. I could be wrong but knowing the personality of Gibson it just seems that that was how it probably went. 
    • Ha ha No I was the one who was shaking his head at the comment! Would be good to get your opinions on the station 👍👍. I was the one who was blasting Warnock 
    • Either that or they had the idea, but then were completely clueless as to how to implement it properly. Its all very well having an idea, but in order for it to work, you then have to draw up a detailed plan of what needs to happen and who is going to do which tasks. Stuff like costs and timelines also usually figure in there somewhere. We heard a lot about the idea, but very little about its execution. If they wanted Boro to be the English Ajax, maybe sending someone over to talk to the club and look at their methods might have helped? 🤷‍♂️ For the record, I really wish it had worked. I would have loved to see our academy finally fulfilling its intended purpose of turning out youngsters good enough to step into the first team and push the club onwards, instead of paying over the odds for big name players who probably don't really want to be there.
