Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Recommended Posts

I'd desperately be looking for a CB right now. Wood has not looked anywhere near ready when he's played.

Elyounoussi was a loan, the player wasn’t interested though

It is but we now only have one senior right back at the club and two senior central defenders.  Howson isn't a right back and Friend is essentially being shifted from left back because he's too decrepit now (no offence if you're reading this George ?)  Having players who can fill in is all well and good but if you need them to fill in for months then it can be a problem.  Still, absolutely the right thing to do ??

Coulson can play either side I think (but not 100% sure) and Howson as a back-up isn't the worst position to be in IMO. Rather a CB if a defender was coming in but much more preference is on the 1 more attacking player which could be huge for us.

Anything that rids us of Gestede I'd be happy with

Not a chance we’ll manage to get rid of him with his wages

Our squad is so thin. Not only body wise but quality in depth aswell. If Shotton goes we literally have 2 senior Cb’s, one of which always gets injured.

still lacking 2 attacking players imo, we have been crying out for wingers the last 2 years, for both sides. We’ve signed one in Browne who looks a quality player but we really need someone else.

George was a CB before he joined us. If Wood, as a top academy prospect, can't be 4th or 5th choice, when is he going to ever get a chance?

Shotton isnt the worst but he simply doesn't suit the football we are trying to play and would end up being a liability, it's a good signing for Wigan in all honesty 

Pretty much sums up my feelings on him.

Coulson looks very left footed to me and he's just starting out in the first team.  I can't say I'd want to see him moved to right back at this stage but it's a lot of 'what ifs' of course.  I think we still need a few players in.

    • 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.
