I can't be arsed arguing with you, all strikers miss chances. Britt's shot:goal ratio is actually quite a lot better than the higher scorers in the league from last season, he was just provided with fewer chances than them and had less game time.

 

How about we give him a season in a team that actually creates chances for him then judge him?

iv said im happy for his to stay, my argument for him to leave is based more off the fact were finically in the shitter and regardless of whos manager he hasn't been good enough. 

but yeah if he stays, we should hopefully see more from him with the style of football woodgate is playing.

Buying Ivan Toney for more than we paid for Fletcher? Madness.

Fletchers price 5+2m addons isn't really that crazy when you see some of the clubs dumping money today.. teams spending 7-8 on foreign 2nd division imports..

BTW now that he's grown up a bit Fletcher is worth that money on current form.

I suspect Toney would be the buy to replace Britt, if he were to leave.. which I don't think he will.

These boro fans who complain about Britt do know that he is a goalscorer right and to replace him would cost more money... Scored 15 goals two seasons in a row and will score 20 this season. Clowns

I disagree entirely.

This is where I'm at.

 

We've brought in £10m in transfer fees so far and cut, at least, £200k a week off our wage bill. How badly in the *** were we for this to not be enough?

We can lose £13m per season. 

Parachute payments were £35m, if we broke even last season we need to save another £22m. So that's about right.

If the money's there the first thing I do tomorrow is give Fry a new contract offer top him up to what Shotton was on he's so important for us.

He signed a 5 year deal last April there's no need to be giving him more money when he's apparently happy to stay and still has 4 years to go

Can’t believe Toney is even being discussed as a replacement for Britt, would be inexcusable. Spending £7m on a young premier league talent is one thing but spending £8m on a LEAGUE 1 striker is bonkers, and would go against the clubs policy off extremely overpaying for bang average players

This, I swear we still haven't replaced Adam Reach on the left and Adomah/Traore on the right 

Adam Reach? The lad never even nailed a place down for us

Season 14/15 - 5 million loss

Season 15/16 - 23 million loss

Season 16/17 - 31million loss

Season 17/18 - 2 million loss

Season 18/19 - 22 million profit

Season 19/20 - 4 million profit

 

This is just transfer fees.

Anyone who says that Britt hasn't been good enough is absolutely deluded.

If we sell Britt without a replacement, I reckon that knocks us down the table at least 5 or 6 spots. Replace him with Ivan Toney and that's probably down 12 or 13 spots....

14/15 he was starting fairly regularly and playing well, just lacked a bit of confidence to get at players and the crowd started getting on his back for cutting back to pass it instead of taking on the full back

So we started playing Tomlin on the left, loaned him out season after and played adomah on the left stuani on the right when Stuani wasn't really suited there

I don't think he'd be happy with Harry Kane as he misses some right sitters

Do you trust our scouts to find another guaranteed 15 goal a season striker?

 

You also neglected to mention that Britt only played the equivalent of 32 full games last year because Pulis had a hard on for Hugill in the first half of the season.

I trust our scouts, I’m just not sure if I trust the contract makers, or if my faith in them is misplaced as they working with Gibson’s Transfer in Rules which when offered to potential customers resemble “magic beans for your nice good cow”

( no offence meant, comment was for humour not for accuracy)

    • Someone edited the referee's Wiki page! 😂
    • I think (and it's been said a million times) that it's beyond the manager.  Meaning it's the club and what it wants to achieve long term.  I'd take farting around the championship if we had a vision.
    • I'd rather have Pulis back and Britt given a 10 year contract on £100K a week!
    • They both contribute or contributed little to nothing, like I said I am not remotely interested in what they may or may not have done in their careers before they joined us. From what I have seen to date NML isn't offering anything special or indeed better than what we already had.  Excuses are exactly that and NML's lack of playing time is now a Boro problem in the same way that Morrison's lack of playing time was. Their individual circumstances/excuses prior to coming to Boro are different but that isn't my argument or of any interest to me come to that. I'm only interested in what I see and both of them look or looked off the pace and not ready for competitive Championship football. NML may come good and there is probably more chance of that with him than there ever was with Morrison but I would rather not see him involved unless he is selected on merit. 
    • I think, unfortunately, that our defensive and midfield players are mostly brain dead. Unless they've been threatened with castration by Warnock, why else would they persist in lumping the ball forward at every opportunity when it was patently obvious that we were hardly ever going to win aerial battles against their defence?
