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.

    • Excited by Gibson and in particular Benkovic who is very highly rated by many in European football. The concern which has been raised by a few people in this thread is why invest significant money on these loan deals when this season in all likeliness will end up as a dead rubber season. I would much rather have Gibson, Benkovic and that caliber player next season if we are going to make a push for the playoffs.
    • We won't be going up this season and we won't be going down. I just hope all these loans have a 12 month extension or automatic buy option, otherwise we are just throwing good money after bad.
    • The problem I see is that we could still leave ourselves hanging if we want two and only sign one. It definitely feels like we could do with a couple of quality additions at the back. And if Gibson goes to the wire, we could leave ourselves in the lurch as our other targets, ones not just us are after, will move elsewhere. The lad from Leicester in particular seems like someone with a bright future and a decent career so far too, I'd be disappointed to see us miss out on signing him because we sign Simpson and we throw everything at getting Gibson and falter. I know some on here have switched off already for this season but I absolutely want to see us go for it so long as we can. I see very little point in switching off so long as we don't kill off our summer plans by doing so, let's finish as high as we possibly can and hey, even top 10 would be something after our start to this year. So yeah, I'm sceptical of Gibson signing without any cheap permanent by the end of it but by all means, get as much quality in as we can and give it a go.
    • D Blackburn  v  Q.P.R. H Brentford  v  N/Forest. (no scorer.) A Cardiff  v  W.B.A. H Hull Cty  v  Huddersfield. H Leeds  v  Millwall. A Luton  v  Derby. A Wigan  v  Sheff Wednesday. H Reading  v  Bristol City A Tranmere  v  Sunderland.. D Rotherham  v  Ipswich Twn.
    • I am not saying this because it seems the Gibson deal might be drifting away from us but I am quite relaxed about the whole situation. i think the reason for that is we seem to be eyeing some decent alternatives in Benkovic and Simpson who both come with a lot of promise. For once we not put all our eggs in one basket. I know club are looking at two CBs but if we get 1 of the above 3 in I will be happy with that. if we dont get either of the 3 then I will start to worry. Oh and i still got hopes our beloved boro will make a out the blue type signing for the top end of the pitch. Ideally more Lee Tomlin out the blue and less Adlene Guidioura out the blue.
