Marvin Johnson is our fastest player? How have you worked that one out?

 

I was thinking that...he’s pretty slow for a winger

You think we got spoilt last summer? Really? Yeah I long for the days of selling our best players and blowing the money on s hite.

I feel like some people have been spoilt over the past couple of seasons as in not just last season

He's our fastest player and created goals in preseason and our first game... it's like people can only see a player is good or bad, there's no inbetween... he could be a useful player for us without setting the world alight.

I've said many a time he should be a squad player for us, cup games and off the bench and someone much better starting

Not getting anyone else in is disappointing, but the players that have come, along with the new direction and footballing philosophy is very positive. 

Much happier with where we are now than where we were this time last season.

But we HAVE given it some attention, we signed Marcus Browne. Yes ideally we could probably do with one more, but when you don't have much money to spend, you're limited in the movements you can make. Next summer once most of the high earners (read: Gestede) are gone, we might have more freedom to make further changes.

Look I get it, I bought into the whole buying cheaper players with potential, I’m happy with every player we’ve signed and looking forward to seeing them on Saturday. 

Yeah the eze thing became a bit of a meme but I wasn’t expecting or even wanting ‘big names’ or for us to throw money about. I just wanted us to have a front 3/4 you could look at and think yeah that’s gonna cause anyone problems.

Charlie Austin signs on a perm for West Brom, fair play that's a great signing.

Who's faster than him in our squad? Maybe one of the new signings? Johnson is a fast player...

Can’t see them not getting top two with their squad and manager

There are better and less condescending ways of making your point RM within your first paragraph. The rest of the content totally agree.  

I am aware there are better ways but I chose not to use them ?

No idea, I was interested to know how you could say Johnson is our fastest though, I've never seen him run anyone tbh.

But he is though, Fletcher and Browne will end up starting on the wings for us.

So what is Marcus Browne? What about the attacking, pacey fullbacks which we were desperate for?

The attitude that our fans are owed something or that we should just spend money we don't have is dumbfounding. Yet you'd be buzzing if we got some untested prem youngster if you'd heard of them on football manager.

To me, on Friday We looked like we were running Luton Ragged,its just that we were leaving ourselves exposed at the back

I've heard he is good at curling them in the top corner.

People are just emotional today. 

I think we've had a good window. One more wide player would have moved it from a good window to a great window. We finally have young attacking full backs, and Marcus Browne (based on limited data granted) looks like he is gonna become an integral part of the team.

People are just upset that we won't pay loan fees anymore.

Clearly we will pay loan fees we just haven't done it today so far.  Do you really think the club were actively pursuing these deals without knowing there would be a fee attached to them?

    • This to me feels very much like the Mowbray era of the type of job he asked to do, get rid of the big wages in players like  Britt for example bring in players who can do the same or better job for less and get competent coaching staff in who know what they are doing. I think personally Gibson trying to replicate the way he got promotion last time by getting someone in to balance the books and then have one big push towards promotion with the next manager.    If i am right, will that work? time will tell. 
    • Yeah,it still goes on,massive money changing hands there, Best of luck trying to drive past one on a narrow road,its like they own the rd & you have no business on it whatsoever, I tried it once and i threw it over a ditch!! Harder than it looks to follow to contours & falls on the rd.
    • As far as planning goes the Golden Thread was going to be how Boro would do things going forwards but the thought, logic and implementation of it was farcical. Gibson may (or may not) have wanted Pulis to stay on but it was impossible for Pulis to stay, there was already a Pulis out banner, social media meltdowns, inflatable dinosaurs and our season card sales were going down faster than Sunderland. That MFC are not very good at planning and that their Woodgate strategy (like Southgate) was flawed and amateurish beyond belief I think is a given. With a distinct lack of personnel changes in senior roles since at the club since (indeed one less) I doubt a new plan would have much more success. It is possibly better to have a wily astute manager who can source his own players via his own contacts etc. and set up a team to do what he believes will garner a promotion bid rather than try again to implement a new dawning under those given constraints and maybe to his credit SG has accepted that. The "personal circumstances" I think was pretty clear, people talk about Steve Gibson's lack of it yet you eloquently proved why he has far more of it than anyone on here. If it was that easy we would all be doing it and so would every Club in the country, I struggle why you failed to grasp that but then I have to admit that I struggle generally with a lot of your thought processes. I guess we are just wired differently. The "future" with any Championship Manager is around twelve months at best (I think the average is actually less) because the demand for instant success doesn't permit for longer. Fans inevitably get restless and want a new one and they want it now, or worse they didn't want him in the first place (Woodgate, Pulis, Monk etc. etc. just with ourselves). A plan with a particular style of football and type of playing personnel etc. is a great ideal and I'm not against it but that brings us back as to who implements the plan and for that and Boro see Woodgate and the Golden Thread. Steve Gibson has made many mistakes, some absolute howlers and his seemingly narcissistic style of control hasn't ingratiated himself very well with those under 45 years old (let alone those of us older) but if you think he is bad then I guess you didn't live through the Charlie Amer era. As Mogga would likely say "it is what it is". As fans we have two choices, get behind the team and make the best of it or walk away and watch Champions League on the telly instead of Championship at the Riverside on a cold wet Tuesday which is a typical Boro trait when times get tough. That's not a dig at anyone, I refused to renew my season card after Pulis and the Club hoped that myself and others would renew just on the basis that Pulis had gone, it worked for some but others held their nerve waiting to see who was the successor. When it was Woodgate I walked away for a multitude of reasons and that as much as anything was another reason why the announcement of his appointment was delayed for fear of losing even more Season card renewals. I have no doubt that some may decide to walk away now and if successful many will come back in time.
