"Trying hard to get another signing in"   I thought it was signings as Woody said we had a thin squad.  Are we now down to 1 signing in the works as other targets haven't come off ?  

 

 

We signed Dijksteel today.

Even I'm waiting for the twist.

I think at least one big player will go. I can see a team panicking and paying stupid money which we’d be stupid to reject

There comes a time in every transfer window when even stupid money should be rejected. Money doesn’t win you points.

That’s true. Depends how early an offer came in

Depends for me on what the goals and objectives are. If the aim is to be mid table/have a run at the playoffs, then selling for silly money has to be considered and replenish the squad the following summer. If the sole aim is promotion, then it has to be rejected. 

Only the hierarchy can answer that one unfortunately

    • Sorry, it wasn't an automatic increase to his salary, it was an automatic extension on his same salary.  
    • Hi, sorry I've been busy with work the past few days. Probably easier if Marvin throws something together. Sorry about that!
    • We've signed decent players, sure. But whens the last time we signed a player, got something out of them and they went on to play at a higher level due to his time with us? I'm really struggling to think of any since we've been relegated. Which is pretty damning in itself
    • In fairness and on reflection, we have actually signed some good players in recent times . I think the problem is either getting the best out of them OR playing these players in positions and systems which don’t fit them so that they under perform. I’ve said it before but I really really hope that who ever we sign actually fits into 2 formations that we are aiming to play. If we sign Jordan Rhodes and play him up front again I’ll flip 🤣 and it will show we haven’t learnt from our mistakes. 
    • It was inclusive of the end of his Boro career, surrounding the contract situation which stopped Pulis from starting him, even bringing him on in the first half on occasion. He said something along the lines of having a gentleman's agreement for a new contract that led him to waiving the automatic increase to his salary so he could play again... then the new contract never came.
