What do you mean 'come back'? There has been no official bid for Assombalonga reported at all. The club has said time and time again this summer we don't need to sell and we don't want to sell our best players. So far that has been the truth. Britt's going nowhere.

SDS has literally just said he could be going so obviously there's something going on. And the not needing to sell is false, I was actually told this last month. I agree that the club don't want to get rid of key players but if the offer is a lot of money then they might take it.

yes you can do, but this video was made in one season of all his terrible misses as a 15 million pounds striker, and yes you can keep using the pulis excuse, but he still created chances many which fell to britt and many that missed. 

like I keep saying, happy for his to stay, but hes not worth 15 mil and theres plenty of strikers out there that we could sign for a fraction of the price that have scored roughly the same amount of goals. 

Again with this.  All it demonstrates is he gets into positions to score. 1 in 2 last season, in a defensive horrible team, with no support and no creativity.

And in 5 hours?

I don’t agree, you pay for proven in this league and that’s what we’ve done. Britt playing in a team that creates chances in this league would score 20+ with ease. 

We’ve not had names mentioned for players who people feel will do as a good a job or a better job - any you feel worth mentioning?

Is Bristol city possibly the one who have bid for Britt? Looks like they aren’t getting Reid either

If Shotton goes the club must of reduced the wage bill by 200k a week on player's that offered very little last season and won't be missed.

Including the manager it's more than that.

On the bright side that young PL AM/ST is still in play we knew it wasn't Murphy or Ibe so 5 hours to go seems like that's still on the table.

Fingers crossed.... A decent attacking player in and Shotton off the books would be a good end to the window

Is it really the end of the world if we lose Britt? If silly money is offered I think we would be stupid not to take it.

Is a confident Fletcher playing through the middle going to be not too much dissimilar in terms of goals? He has never really been given a consistent run in the team. Robbie Keane might just be able to squeeze the best out of him. 

I’m just going to sit tight and wait to see what this season holds for us, with or without Britt.

I wouldn't be too bothered about giving Fletcher a run, I like him but if he gets injured then we're left with Gestede as back-up if no one else comes in.

Man this deadline day has all the hallmarks of previous deadline days where we fail to get that last player in that we really lack ie. a winger. I'm not massively fussed with us not replacing Shotton before january. It'll be crucial to just get him off the books. I also don't think Britt will be leaving. Of course he "could" if ridiculous money is offered but less than 5 hours until the window closes and he has to undergo an extensive medical test because of his medical history. Sure Marseille could have it done in England, and their window is open for longer, but we'd want it done today to sign a replacement. I really fail to see us going into the season without a capable replacement and that's just not going to fall into our lap. Gayle is the obvious candidate if we recieve a massive cash windfall but still that's probably a signing that is too expensive even on loan.

Predictions is Shotton is leaving and we don't sign anyone. It would be OK with me, but it'll leave the entire window a bit meh as we haven't adressed the wings/creativity good enough and we've mainly signed league 1 players. Biggest positive is that we've shifted some poor high earners.

he never has scored 20 goals in this league so to say he would with ease is abit of stretch. 

and it terms of players to bring in, im not in the scouting department  as much id like to be haha, but as I pointed out 18 players scored 14 goals or more last season. top scorer was a free transfer, two of the top 5 were loans and the rest of the top 10 added together only cost a few million more than what we paid for assombalonga. 

 

theres bargins to be had, and were not a club who can afford to keep a player like assombalonga especially at goal to game ratio hes offering.

If we say 240k a week that's 12 million a year in wages alone. Mindblowing.

    • Yes I would agree with this if mid table like a month ago but as now we are heading league one we have to cut losses sack Woodgate get a Warnock in to keep us in the Championship. As if we get league one football it's a very long way back!
    • I enjoyed the game tonight tbh, despite it being freezing. I thought we went toe to toe with Leeds for the most part and could have quite easily nicked a goal or maybe even two on a different night. I'm not ready to completely write Woodgate off just yet - I think until he's had a proper chance to balance the squad to his liking over the summer & also get rid of all the various high earners (who've been pretty uninspired for several managers over several years now), it's kinda difficult to judge the poor bugger. He's clearly not doing a fantastic job, but I think a lot of managers would have struggled with us this season - espescially given the task of relying on youth and completely overhauling the playing style, but with pretty much the same core group.. All the young players will be a season better next year and hopefully the same will go for Woodgate. Assuming we make some positive moves/changes to the squad over the summer, we can start to build from there. Although I appreciate that it's fashionable to be negative on this forum, so with that said; Woodgate out!
    • The Forrest games on Monday this gives the club a long weekend of double training sessions. As honestly Gibson needs to say Woodgate will you resign if he doesn't sack him then get a Warnock in who be here 9am this morning getting them players drilled for 4 days. I reckon if this happened by Monday night the Boro will be transformed and may beat Forrest. But nope this won't happen the players will laze around for 4 days doing pre season like drills then stuffer another L on Sky. I don't actually think Boro have won a game live on Sky this year
    • Don't really want to see George  playing for us anymore, he has lost it totally. Food for thought I do not imagine for one moment that Ben Gibson will be donning a Boro shirt if we do go down
    • 352 britt and fletcher up front, howson or spence rwb, tav in the middle where he was doing well.
