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

I have it on good authority that Marcus Edwards is going to be a Boro player by 5pm tomorrow. If this doesn’t happen, I am to instantly resign from the board. Hang up the ol’ posting boots and die on this hill. Marcus Edwards. Tomorrow. Or I’m gone.

There is maybe 5-6 players who fit Vickers description of this mystery target that seem available and realistic the only 1 I've seen linked with a club is Izzy Brown and Stoke.

For those catching up our target is a young, pacey attacking midfielder who can play striker as well on loan from the Prem according to Vickers.

Hopefully you are correct. Looks like he may be a good signing

@Smoggydownsouth Out of interest how has it gone from us wanting maybe 4 in to just the one, have all our top targets turned us down and we weren’t prepared to go for the 2nd choice options in those positions?

Prices change mate..  players change mind... loads of factors in a deal

But presumably we still want four players otherwise why did we want them all in the first place?  The specific players that we wanted might not be an option any longer but we must still want four players if that's what we wanted.

Expectations change as we realise deals cant be done.  They were all in the pub with Pulis last time!!

Except if the specific players you wanted aren't available anymore, maybe you no longer want 4 players? Maybe you don't want your 2nd or 3rd choices in those positions, and therefore you no longer want those players, now you only want 1 player that you know you can get in.

If those players became available again and wanted to come, we'd go back to wanting 4 players.

You always try and make things more difficult than they are.

    • Absolutely no chance I would be paying that. He is 30 and has 12 months left on his contract i read. Defo needs to be a 6 figure sum and not 7 figure sum.
    • £1.2m is the figure being quoted so we'll probably get ripped for for £2m knowing us  
    • If Smith signs i would imagine he would certainly be arriving as back up and not main striker. Secondly 10 goals and 3 assists for the team that finished 2nd bottom in league imo is not the worst record. Yes he wont get pulses raising but Kieffer Moore hit 10 goals for struggling Wigan last season and in a better team his return was better and we (whether people like NW or not) are better than Rotherham. I am not for one second suggesting Smith will score 20 goals for us like Moore has for Cardiff but he would not be worst back up target man if that is what he arrives as given his numbers last season.
    • 224 but ran out of time 🤦‍♂️ It felt like I spent 5 mins just trying to remember Mark Summerbell's name, which wouldn't be so bad but he wasn't the person I was even trying to remember.  I was actually thinking about Steve Baker and the League Cup semi final against Liverpool when he did that man-marking job on Steve McManaman.  I think Summerbell was the lad who was going out with one of Robson's daughters while he was playing for us?  Quite a few I didn't get from the last 5 years or so really.  Didn't even get a couple from the current squad 🤭
    • Doesn't even hold him in high enough regard to tell him the truth about his future when he signs a contract waiver, according to Downing. I imagine that feeling is, or at least was, more than mutual.
