Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Recommended Posts

Browne's was revealed as a four-year contract. Bola's wasn't mentioned anywhere I don't think but I'd guess probably a three year contract.

I’m sure I seen somewhere that Bolas was a 2 year contract.

Yeah I remember that because it seemed odd at the time, was it 2 with the option of a 3rd year?

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"? 

 

Aye, apparently Karanka wanted different targets but instead had Gestede and Bamford handed to him. That season baffles me completely, we got rid of 3 perfectly good strikers and replaced them with worse (barring Negredo)

I think the Gazette mentioned both contract lengths, but find it strange that there is no "official" confirmation. I know Arsenal would never reveal contract lengths under Wenger, but they would do it for every transfer. We seem to have done it for Bola and Browne, but not Meijas and Dijksteel.

Not sure if there's truth to it, but a few FMTTM posters seem to think we're offering a deal to Callum Roberts, a 22 year old winger from South Shields who was released by Newcastle.

Apparently has played for our U23s this season twice already

Just on a side note, going back to the appointment of Woodgate, all the talk about the 'interview' process, the ex Fulham Manager etc., if we are as 'skint' as we seem to be was this actual fact or fiction?

Why would we even go down that route in the knowledge we couldn't deliver the transfer budget necessary? was it simply a PR exercise to appease the fans?

It certainly looks that way.

I think fiction because I believe Gibson wanted Pulis as his first choice.  Everything else has followed on from his failure to convince him to stay on.

    • Not really one to share info but been told tonight there is definite interest in Gibson and both parties want it to happen. This information is from the same guy that told me about Ste Walker starting against Stoke which I posted about in the matchday thread a good few days before. As I say just passing on information but makes it more interesting after Woody’s BBC Tees interview. 
    • Just got back (found a nice pub after the game). Eerily similar to the spurs game earlier in the week. Preposterous first half full of errors, lying deep and conceding the midfield. Second half was end to end. Boro supporters in full voice, home fans mustering little. Roberts was excellent, he didn't stop running. Fulham looked dead good though, It took us a full half until we could scare them. I'd like to think a draw would have been fair but I think Fulham were just better (and so they should be). Onwards and upwards.
    • I always thought Reece Oxford was a DM? I swear that’s when he played in that game against arsenal.
    • Woodgate also said that he would have loved to have played a back 4 tonight obviously couldn’t since we only have 1 for centre half.    Personally think Woody wants to go back to the original plan of 4-3-3 as soon as he possibly can.
