January transfer window 19/20 season Post Mortem

To go back to the original topic though, I'd rather we didn't extend Shotton's contract and let him go.  £15k per week or more, it's still a decent chunk of money to risk being stuck with the player for another year.

Much rather debate ability on the pitch than exact wage numbers of players. If Shotton was the lowest paid player at the club I’d still want him out

Of course that's what some players do, I'm not disputing that and that has nothing to do with my point.  You still have to pay the £2000 signing on fee is my point.  Say the contract at the council is for 1 year then you could just as easily offer a pay rise to £538 per week for the year with no signing on fee and you are paying the same amount as £500 with a £2000 signing on fee.  You still have to pay whatever the person wants to be paid, it's still in your accounts as wages, it's just a different method of the money being paid out.  I can only guess there's some tax benefit to a signing on fee otherwise it makes absolutely no difference at all.

It's probably a benefit to the players if they leave during there contact.

I see the football accountants are out in force tonight.  I would assume most fans could not give two hoots as to the make up of a players salary package. I would also assume the majority of fans chatting on a fans forum have no idea to the facts and figures of individual players packages. As a Boro fan I want the best for our club but have no interest in the minutia of players wages, as long as the player is good enough and the club can afford him I'm more than happy.

I'm think that the payments are staggered throughout the contract so you get some each year of the deal?

Don't read it then, makes no difference to me.  Players being good enough and whether the club can afford them are one of the reasons we're 17th in league.  You'd think that would be obvious but some people still don't seem to get it.  I'd prefer if this stuff wasn't important as well but it is and while it is, I'm going to take an interest in it.

And we are where we are because the players haven't been good enough and the club can't afford them.

Regarding Shotton, apparently like Gibson has apparently done with Downing, the Stoke board are keen to see Shotton return to the club, see him ending career there and having further role as coach/scout/ recruiter of local talent around the Potteries, however their views are in consistent opposition to the views of multiple managers, but O’neil Is apparently more open to this but as a quid pro quo for signings in the summer.

so we are in the same boat as everybody else then

Hope the boat sea worthy and powered as Boro often sail in creaks without paddles and at times self made holes below the water line. 😂

Aye, at Sunderland the cry went up when the ship started sinking to “Bail Out” From the owner downwards everyone who could took that literally. 😂

sadly like at all clubs it’s the fans who end up wading through the creak to save the ship.

I wonder how much Ryan Shotton earns per week. 

If only we could find somewhere to discuss this hot topic.

    • Yes I would agree with this if mid table like a month ago but as now we are heading league one we have to cut losses sack Woodgate get a Warnock in to keep us in the Championship. As if we get league one football it's a very long way back!
    • I enjoyed the game tonight tbh, despite it being freezing. I thought we went toe to toe with Leeds for the most part and could have quite easily nicked a goal or maybe even two on a different night. I'm not ready to completely write Woodgate off just yet - I think until he's had a proper chance to balance the squad to his liking over the summer & also get rid of all the various high earners (who've been pretty uninspired for several managers over several years now), it's kinda difficult to judge the poor bugger. He's clearly not doing a fantastic job, but I think a lot of managers would have struggled with us this season - espescially given the task of relying on youth and completely overhauling the playing style, but with pretty much the same core group.. All the young players will be a season better next year and hopefully the same will go for Woodgate. Assuming we make some positive moves/changes to the squad over the summer, we can start to build from there. Although I appreciate that it's fashionable to be negative on this forum, so with that said; Woodgate out!
    • The Forrest games on Monday this gives the club a long weekend of double training sessions. As honestly Gibson needs to say Woodgate will you resign if he doesn't sack him then get a Warnock in who be here 9am this morning getting them players drilled for 4 days. I reckon if this happened by Monday night the Boro will be transformed and may beat Forrest. But nope this won't happen the players will laze around for 4 days doing pre season like drills then stuffer another L on Sky. I don't actually think Boro have won a game live on Sky this year
    • Don't really want to see George  playing for us anymore, he has lost it totally. Food for thought I do not imagine for one moment that Ben Gibson will be donning a Boro shirt if we do go down
    • 352 britt and fletcher up front, howson or spence rwb, tav in the middle where he was doing well.
