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

Belgian lad that had a change of heart too.

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.

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
