Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Recommended Posts

He says he read about Shotton to Wigan on Gazettelive?

In one breath he's an absolutist manager dictating specific narrow targets in the next he's a powerless head coach who's starting CB being sold is news to him via the Gazette website?

Honestly I don't know what's going on if the aim this season behind the scenes is reshape and restructure completely they should have sold Britt and Randolph why have those players if the stated aim in the backroom is midtable?

Bevington was supposed to integrate a 'Boro DNA' as part of his job description our academy's in great shape already without him and Woodgate's shown there's a pathway I'm just confused why our recruitment head is remitted with that task I'd still prefer an outsider 'recruitment head' who we have faith isn't limiting Woodgate or the U23s recruitment options we need to open up to foreign scouting again in a serious manner Woodgate wont get the tools he needs on a tight budget by taking ex Sunderland defenders as trialists with the 23s and paying top dollar for some of the best League 1 players the club will need to seriously look for the 500k-1.5 million players from foreign leagues in the near future I'm not sure the current setup allows that.

"I read that (about Wigan), I read that on GazetteLive, I was finding out more from you than I was anywhere else to be honest but I didn't know anything about it," he said.

Excellent communication within the club ?

Lines up with what we know - he was also totally in the dark on the Braithwaite stuff too.

The thread title was changed to 'Post Mortem', which is something that occurs after the main event. The window was closed about 48 hours ago. You can't even get a real post mortem done in that time!

Yes Will. I don’t understand why someone would want an active thread shut down. Just don’t read it if you don’t like it.

I personally think that there should always be a transfer thread open. Just because the transfer window has closed doesn't mean that discussion has to stop too. 

Imagine if the club only talked about transfers when the window is open we'd be in a much worse/the same position.

were loans dependent on offloading Shotton?

They may well have been. We could be maxed out on wages and were hoping to move him on in order to bring in others.

    • Looks decent on his highlights video, so did Dong Gook Lee and Alves though!  
    • I suggested Gnanduillet as a cheap Gestede so we can use our money on creative midfielders, I thought Fletcher and Britt were brilliant since the restart personally and is more than a good enough strikeforce for top 10 They could both score 15+ if we sign 2 wingers and a number 10 type player, Britt's best season was when we had Traore Hardest bit is fitting them into a formation could play Fletcher on the left in a 4-3-3 with Britt up front or Fletcher just off Gnanduillet in a 4-2-3-1 or Fletcher lone man with 2 wingers who like to cut in similar to Fulham  (Cavaleiro - Mitrovic - Knockaert) and Tav as an attacking CM in a 3 of him, Saville and Howson  
    • I don’t think the issue is the strikers, you’d struggle to find 2 better than them at this level on a budget. For me, the goal scoring problem is more from the lack of pace and creativity out wide and in midfield. I think that’s where the priority needs to be once we’ve sorted the defence because at times the forwards looked like they were playing a different game by themselves. 
    • Again, i think any player through the door this window will be suited to a certain style of play under Warnock. I hope and pray that we are now past signing players who “look good on paper” but then don’t suit how we play.    Telling that we look at the stats model for signings, but Warnock dismisses the players based on his experience. Data can only give you a certain view point, which rarely beats experience. Hopefully we find a happy medium, but if Warnock likes the look of him and thinks he could utilise him then I trust his judgement more than Woodgate. 
    • How reliabe are the links? Yes from me 3rd different to Britt and fletch
