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. 

big ask though for a finically crippled club, how many teams in the league have a front 3 like that? no many.

fear not.. DS...in less than two weeks, he can see his hero.....tell him that you can't make it Saturday because you've been naughty

Ha ha in less than 2 weeks he will have a new favourite Boro player. Why Shotton then I guess only he knows, certainly not encouraged by his father or myself.

I think it possibly was due to his different hairstyle more than anything!

As a long time lurker I would just like to say there are some utter fannys posting with completely unrealistic expectations of what the club can and will spend. 

 

For me, this has been a far better window than expected. We finally have natural right back for the first time in 3 or 4 years. We have a fast left back, a new left winger, there are opportunities for youth and young players to shine, we have got rid of some high earners and we have (so far) kept some key players. 

 

 

Are you Ron who posts on the gazette or are you old man Ron from twitter or are you some Ron I don't even know about lol

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

And there's the problem. Fletcher still isn't a wide player.

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? 

*** hell you have to argue everything don't you. Yes they knew there would be loan fees. No they didn't know they'd be so much. They've been priced out of players, *** happens.

He's only been at the club for 2 seasons for a start and played 17 games for us but if that's enough to write him off then sound

It's hardly a ringing endorsement of the bloke though, is it?

Well that's the thing isn't it? Look at the way the rest of the league is preparing for this year, they're preparing for a fight at the top. The way we did 2 years ago. They're preparing for a promotion hunt. No matter what Woody or Keane say, the club as a whole is not preparing for that. They've asked for patience for a reason; they don't expect promotion this season.

Now if say we come to January and we're in and around the top 6 with one or two clear problem positions, we might be more open to dealing on the loan front. We'll have half a fee to pay and we'll have justification to throw a bit of money in if needs be. I think that's how this season is going to go. I think Woody needs to prove the concept works, he needs a few months to show what his team can do as is. Loans aren't what we need to do that. If it's working by January, he'll get some backing.

Didn’t woodgate literally say promotion was his aim? 

?

So what you said was a lie then?  And now you're getting angry about me exposing you as a liar ?

Excited to see Browne this season. Fletcher on the wing though just pains me. It could work if the LB bombs forward and is effectively our winger. But for me Fletcher is so much better central, round pegs in square holes...again

You would have thought loan fees to some extent would have been initially discussed prior to any serious interest/showing around the club. I think we had the funds for 1 decent loan singing it's just our first choices have gone elsewhere and we aren't (for once & good reason) prepared to panic and get someone else in.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
