Is that the gazette already writing this season off then, already looking at next year¬†ūüôā

From the Gazette 

"Some big earners leaving next summer will free up space on the teamsheet and in the wage bill for Academy graduates or young, hungry players may chime with the new strategic planning to make the club sustainable" 

It's virtually copy and pasting articles from the Southgate era.

Come this time next season I predict 90% of the first team squad as it stands today won't be in a boro shirt

That in itself doesn't bother me, just hope we can replace them with better players eventually.

I think the shift in club philosophy is that academy players need to be given a chance to play first team football... the whole remit of the academy was / is to find enough quality players that when we sell they ultimately help self sustain the club... that however in my opinion is a dream that very rarely becomes reality

Not a lot to spill mate. Thoughts are that it will get a lot worse before it gets better. Not info just personal opinion.

Damn, I hoped you had something positive but .....

Yeah the reality is we'd probably end up being like Crewe used to be, a lower league feeder club. 

Gibson might be happy with that though if we were full of local lads.

Got the feeling that if MB goes it won't be until after our window closes. Then it will be a cheap loan or a very cheap buy option. Every one buying seems to accept we're skint every one selling thinks we still have money hidden under the sofa.

I believe the window for permanent and loan signings in this country closes at same time this year, estonpidge.

Rest of Europes transfer window is 31st August though i think. Thus if MB goes after our window closes we can't replace him even with a loan until Jan (unless we sign a free agent).

I think burnley are after a danish talent at right back. Joachim Mähle. Will be a good signing. But might make it easiest to strike a deal for Fry; cash plus Lowton.

I meant he will leave as, not we'll replace him with

On the topic of Braithwaite... has anyone watched the training video uploaded today, know its only small clips but he looks a couple of levels above anyone else. If only we could facilitate keeping him somehow, as he really has the talent when playing in a good footballing side. 

He's probably happier to be back now that Hugill and Pulis have gone. Maybe he's waiting until we play Wigan so he can get his revenge on Hugill, haha.

    • Personally I would have liked to see Stokes score more last night, fully accept the circumstances, but if we are too passive and cautious this too can assist the Aussies. One thing for certain we can not rely on Butler getting runs if he comes in early today
    • We really need both stokes and root to get a century, not too confident with the rest of the batters left
    • Well very pleased to see England close the day on 156-3. Very controlled and patient batting for most of the day from Root and Denly have gotten us to this stage. Stokes in the last hour of the day came into bat at 5 in survival mode and made 2 runs (not out) off 50 balls. The first session¬†of tomorrow's play will decide the outcome of this test match (and the Ashes). If Stokes and Root can survive the first 8 overs of play unscathed. At which point the new ball is available to Australia. They will then have to contend with the new ball and the threats that come with it. If they can get to lunch unscathed after the new ball I think that is when the test becomes ours to lose. At this stage I'd happily take England scoring 30 runs all session if it meant losing no wickets. It will also be England's highest ever run chase if we are successful.
    • Our problem has been that we just don't score goals, we've been amongst the lowest scorers in the championship both pre and post our 1 season recently in the PL. This season, although it's early on, seems to be going the same way. While Britt does get goals, he's not what you'd call prolific, we've been set up as a defensive team for a few years now through different managers and scoring has been an added bonus to not conceding goals.
    • No worse than some of the goals our players have missed, and he also scored today. Hugill has scored 3 goals so far this season. That's more than our top scorers. Imagine if he'd scored at the same¬†rate for us as he is now - we might have gone up! Not sure what we do to our strikers - they always seem to do well for everyone else but do less well for us. Bamford a possible exception as he did well for us, although he's really banging them in for Leeds at the moment.¬† ¬†
