Britt Assombalonga to #mfc. £15m transfer fee, 4 year deal at £40,000 per week. Total cost = £23.3m

 

Wayne Rooney to #dcfc. £0 transfer fee, 18 month deal at £100,000 per week. Total cost = £7.8m

 

We're just better in the transfer market. End of!

I hate to say it but they do have a point?

Didn't Rooney have 18 months left on his DC United contract? If he is joining in 6 months wouldn't he have had a year left? Can't see Derby not having to pay some sort of fee for him.

It might be worth waiting to see what Rooney actually does in this league. He's been playing in the MLS for a while now and whilst it is improving it is a long way of the physicality and pace of any English league.

 

The other point as others have made is that through the duration of Britt's contract he will be worth something, probably in excess of £10m, whilst Rooney is/will be worthless in terms of a transfer fee.

Apart from Braithwaite we have shifted no other players out so far which is as interesting as waiting on arrivals.

Someone mentioned the fact that only 3 league 1 players have arrived thus far and personally I think the lure of coming to Middlesbrough is not high on the agenda of others we possibly are hoping for. That may change depending on what others perceive in the work in progress achieved from Woodgate and possibly it will be the winter transfer period that will be active.

If there is movement away from the club today then yes I would expect some arrivals but we maybe very quiet until 5pm

How come the deadline ends at 5pm and not 11pm as makes it tight for clubs to bid for a player on the morning and get them in by 5pm

They've had 4 months to do business. If 6 hours means a deal can or can't be done, then those people in those positions shouldn't be in those positions.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
