By football men I mean suitably qualified or experienced in scouting players. 

Neither have any background in identifying players yet they are apparently part of 'the committee'. 

I brought all this up when everyone was wetting themselves with excitement about this great new era that was beginning. Guess what, we've been poor in the transfer market again. 

Maybe step back a little and realise what our problems are because it certainly wasn't in spotting players, I actually think they did a good job in that regard. It's just a shame Gibson couldn't or more so wouldn't back them.

The three we have got in, we have done well to do so and at good prices. By all means the players we had set up to bring in would have improved us too but you can't blame Bevington or Bausor for the rug being pulled out on them

Would anyone be kind enough to list the targets we didn't quite get over the line for one reason or another?
Would be really interested to see it.
Maybe we'll go back in for some in January.

As far as I know there was two on the final day and the way that went down, you can only assume more throughout.

Seems Boye was lined up, same with the lad on loan from Southampton but it's mixed reviews on whether he turned us down or Gibbo pulled it

The mystery PL loan target that fell through on deadline day is still a relative mystery the Gazette has since said Ibe, Wells and ElYounoussi were not under serious consideration and they were not the guy Woodgate thought he had Wednesday night but who opted against moving on deadline day.

Is that after we pulled out on deals though?

They were the two shown around rockliffe iirc so we definitely were in for them. Think loan fees got too large.

Sorry, I thought your original point was on who we went in for but couldn't get. My apologies

Find it hard at this time to get over the feeling that it was absolutely shameful after such endeavor to get into the Premier League Karanka was not backed in that January transfer window, fast forward 6 months and we give Monk close to 50 million. 

We seem miles away from a team such as De Roon, Traore, Negredo, Ramirez, Valdes, Gibson and Stuani.

It was pretty much downhill from there on. The financial mess we're in now really worries me. I have a lot of respect for Gibson but he has made some bad decisions in the past few years, should have backed Karanka and not thrown all the money Monk's way. Things could have turned out so differently.

Agreed, the more I think about it the more that Jan window looked like a "FU" to Karanka - what was Gibsons lie, I mean statement on promotion (just before season tickets went on sale)? "were not in it to survive - we're going to give it a right good go"?

Might be a very good idea as there tend to be zero goals at the end of the pitch he plays in.

Quick question, it may have been mentioned earlier. But does anyone know the lengths of Browne and Bola's contracts? I noticed on the club website that it wasn't mentioned. But Dijksteel and Meijas' contract lengths were mentioned.

    • Boro flashback this day 22nd November 1986                       Newport County 0 Boro 1 The face of advercity bandwagon is rolling on brilliantly & gathering pace, up to the Newport game we had played 16 league games & suffered 2 defeats, along with 4 league cup matches & one defeat against a team in a higher league & in to extra time, this from the same 12 players who had no summer practise matches, no friendlies, just training in local parks with jumpers as goal posts, the season was far better than the most optimistic of us Boro supporter could dream of  Bruce couldnt ask for any more from his players With the clock ticking down to the 90 minutes mark & the game finishing goaless at Somerton Park, it was looking like our 1st ever fixture on this ground was to be points shared, but, the mighty Boro & Boro legend Mogga had other ideas, we have a corner & with time almost over 'Tony Mowbray' nods home to score the vital winner & the ref blows the whistle, its full time, we take all three points back & the Boro fans, with the 5 hour journey, 300 miles back to Teesside to look forward to are ecstatic  Brucy Riochs red & white army team is Stephen Paers Brian Laws Colin Cooper Tony Mowbray Gary Parkinson Gary Pallister Bernie Slaven Archie Stephens Alan Kernaghan Gary Gill Stuart Ripley SUB Gary Hamilton on for Alan Kernaghan
    • Spurs might finally win something though, so maybe it's a tradeoff they are willing to make.
    • Narrow win here for me I reckon. I'll say 2-1, Britt and Ayala with the goals
