Graeme Bailey saying we have an option to buy on Moukoudi 

SDS saying the opposite and I am more inclined to believe him. Makes you wonder who Bailey's source is at the club?

West Ham and Villa wanted him and one of the clubs offered 13 million pounds for him which was rejected by S-Etienne. We know it is a loan at this stage but these types of players are the ones we should be going in for and we should be optimistic we can attract such a player

I feel when we clear out in the summer with the big wages and FFP in line we can attract some serious talent.

Nothing of the sort.

No club is obliged to sell any player. I'm simply saying that what has transpired over the last couple of weeks makes no sense.

With hindsight, neither does Gibson's move to Burnley...


He was signed to replace left footer Ben Mee, but then that deal fell through. Burnley's have a fantastic injury record so there was just no way into the team. What is surprising though is that Gibson doesn't even make the bench.

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
