January transfer window 19/20 season Post Mortem


Recommended Posts

Good to see us move early and bring in a player in an area we are short in. I'd also say he is a definite improvement on Browne and Johnson.

But I am a pretty unenthused about Roberts. He has never really performed other than at Celtic and as Boro fans we know how well players from the Scottish league tend to do.

I do hope that I am wrong though as him doing well in turn will probably mean us doing well!

Sorry I just needed to see kids as off to London tomorrow until saturday.   Randolph - West Ham tried to renegotiate with us and wanted a loa  as they couldn't be sure with injury... woody s

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

I guess this means the end of Marvin Johnson and probably Spence if Clarke comes as well.

It'll be interesting to see what formation he goes to if he gets the wingers he craved preseason. Personally I'd love to see Spence and Coulson as the 2 fullbacks in a back 4 and move Howson to battle with Clayton for that DM slot.

Spence is a RB and given Dijksteel injured he will still be involved imo as he only RB we have. Even if Howson plays RB spence will still be needed imo

If playing 343 you would have Ayala, howson and fry at the back, coulson, Spence, wing/tav, Seville/mcnair/Clayton in midfield and Roberts, Clarke and fletcher up front Maybe?

Roberts is maybe the first coup signing we've made in 3 years? If we get Clarke, a striker and a centre back in... Well they aint being signed to finish 13th I'd suggest there's a whiff of ambition in Roberts/Clarke.

If Clarke comes in then it becomes even harder to pick the attacking players. Can’t leave out Tav with his form

Really hope any signings coming in don’t displace the promising youngsters we have coming through. Tav and Coulson have been amazing and have to keep their spots, Spence has looked equally impressive in a slightly shorter sting.

 

Really happy with Roberts signing and I hope Woody has a plan to fit him in without dropping the players above.

Spence and coulson should keep their places you would think. Tav has been amazing recently so it would be hard to leave him out too. Lovely to have some options though now

    • Under normal accounting standards for intangible assets, transfer fees are amortized on a straight-line basis over the period of the players’ contracts. This was how Derby got into trouble by assigning a residual value to reduce the annual amortized cost to the club. Let's say you are allowed to defer the payment, the costs would have to be assessed over a reduced period and therefore be higher in the out years, big risk if you don't succeed.
    • Surely depends how they account for the actual transfer fee payment, can’t remember if they put it through operating costs or not (and Cba to check right now). If the transfer fee is incurred in the P+L as it’s paid then there is definitely a FFP benefit to back ending payments. 
    • It'll be a loan deal for a year as Mr_Maz says.  If it's got any link to FFP then I can only think it's to help Fulham's FFP position for the coming year.  I don't believe they've sold anyone for any serious money so far, and they would ideally want to keep the net transfer spend as close to zero as possible, as their wage bill will be higher than the parachute payments they receive.  If things don't go as they plan this season then they will probably sell players next summer, which would balance things out for FFP and also cash flow, so the transfer of Wilson then will be fine.
    • https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/cardiff-city-youngster-who-really-21140778 If I was a Cardiff fan I'd read those paragraph's as Brown will probably be gone and Boro's rejected bid wasn't far off, it would be interesting if we sign him AND Kean Bryan. It would definitely add some depth to our left side especially if we're looking to play 5 at the back more often than not.
    • “He is really looking forward to moving to Middlesbrough or the mighty Boro I hear they are called. They have a history with South America and are the best at samba outside of Rio De Janerio is my understanding. Personal details are sorted when they added weekly Parmo’s to his salary can’t wait to do the lambada in the Claggy Mac with the pretty girls.  On the pitch he plays midfield but doesn’t like running So Mr Warnock style of play is perfect as they tend to bypass that part of the pitch most of the time “  **From Google Translate ** Take it as true and please don’t fact check it👍
