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)

    • 1: Team and formation?  If we want consistency in performances & results, it starts with consistency of teams. Never  change a winning formula I say. Same as the Forest lineup, unless injuries / fatigue make changes necessary. 2: Is it good to change a winning team?  See above answer. 3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Probably - cause refs are stupid. But Samwise doesn't help himself either. Is he one of those players who just isn't as effective if he doesn't "put himself about", as pundits like to say? 4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  We have to hope so. Its the old cliché that goals breed confidence. Score one and more will follow...hopefully. 5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for...a goal contributor? 4 goals and 4 assists so far. Is that what we bought him for? I always did wonder... Well, the more, the merrier as far as I'm concerned. 6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Both. Maiden have definitely been the more consistent and have more interesting songs (if you're a fan of history, warfare, mythology and the usual prog metal subjects). Leppard wrote too many ballads and chased commercial success, but wrote some absolute belters. 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper. If we keep within reach of the play off spots...can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? I think this is what most of us are expecting. Personally I'm still worried that we're not consistent enough and could fall away, being typical Boro and losing games we should win. But would be happy to be proved wrong. 8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  I'll leave this to the ITK faction. Your guess is as good as mine. 🤷‍♂️

    • Also should read Boro V Blackburn as we are the home team! But if true @SmogDane the Rotherham m/d thread is yours to do. Also AK is not our Manager
