@Lurker, @diggerlad07 @Smoggydownsouth and all the other ITK posters. Thank you for all the ITK info you guys share. Think i speak for everyone when i say it is much appreciated. Without it the l

Roberts is done. As someone has said, Ayala is on £25k a week. Don’t know what he’s been offered but I can’t believe it would be £5k. Randolph is gone, assume it’s West Ham.    5 more

noticeable that Saville's poorer games are often when Johnson is in team...spends more time trying to bail him out than winning the ball and pushing forward...then gets hammered for the mistake he is trying to put right....did well in the aggro at the end though..looked like he was trying to keep the Birmingham guy from losing it altogether

Saville wasn't great yesterday but not many were. He has absolutely been much better in the recent run, though, he actually started to stand out a bit which is some progress from where I've felt he's been at for pretty much the entirety of the previous year and a bit of his Boro career. Glad to see it!

Think it’s clearly mcnair that guy is talking about, would be disappointed to see him leave tbh.

If he does go does that mean we need 3 defenders with at least 2 being centre backs? That's a heck of a lot of transfers to see through. I guess we keep Shotton just to see us through to summer.

Bamford for Britt straight swap.. No brainer for me. 

But would never happen

It honestly wouldn’t shock me if it did, I wouldn’t hate it but at the same time wouldn’t mind us looking at younger/cheaper options. Shankland up in Scotland for example.

I am not convinced they're even interested in Britt, this is purely agent talk to try to pressure clubs on other deals

    • They've had 5 shots on target both their games (25 shots in total), so they've not just passed the ball sideways. England have managed 3 shots on target across 2 games (13 total). They've been unlucky in both games, some very good goalkeeping and having morata up front has hindered them. 
    • Spains second half vs Sweden and quite a large portion of the game vs Poland they had all of the ball but did almost nothing with it. To me, they don't pass the eye test and I expect them to get knocked out pretty quickly (if they even make it through). They can't seem to finish, they spend all their time passing the ball sideways and their defence is incredibly suspect.
    • Huh huh, huh huh... You said Onlyfans .. huh huh ...  
    • I'm pretty sure too. If any coach / manager openly talked about throwing a game, one Tweet would be all it took to cause a huge scandal and put that person out of a job. But a canny one might pick a certain team and tactics that would guarantee they'd struggle. The players might think something was a bit funny...but there would be no proof of any shenanigans. 😉   In England's case though, I have to say Southgate strikes me as too honest a person. I'm sure he has way too much integrity to even consider something like that. But his cautious nature, team selections and tactics could end up having the same result. 🤷‍♂️  
    • Exactly... and even if we do draw and get an 'easy game' in the next round, there's  no guarantee we win it going in on poor form. Plus we would only have to play a strong team in the following round anyway, with Italy Belgium and whoever wins France's group on that side of the draw. You can't hide from the best sides for long in the Euros. Tonight's all about a good performance and getting the fans back on side for a home tie in the next round. It's guaranteed to be a tough game but we might as well fly home now if people are too scared to play Germany in a one off game.
