And it hasn't made Sky Sports transfer centre yet so clearly not happening.

Whilst appreciating that the OP could be just on a mindless wind up to fill his pointless day, even if we didn't sign this player I wouldn't be upset.

15m for a man of such a questionable fitness record would concern me.

Easy, what does it matter to you, or any of us what the club pay for him. If they deem it to be worth the money they'll pay it. If not they won't. It makes no difference to any of us whatsoever.

Wow - was told last night by very reliable source Boro has told Assombalongo agent the deadline for agreeing to join had passed and we were out of here. Seems he realised a good offer when he seen it and came running and has now completed the deal. Tough negotiation seems to be Boro's new approach UTB

He is exactly what we have been missing for too long now. A strong direct no nonsense centre forward in the mould of Yakubu and Hasselbaink.

15M is a bargain for a proven centre forward at this level with his best years ahead of him.

Cannot wait to see our dynamic attacking force of Assombalonga with hopefully, Traore.. Braithwaite and Ramirez playing in behind him.

Easy, I rate Bamford very highly and I think him and Assombalonga could be a great partnership - or possibly a great front 3 with Braithwaite if that's how Monk decides to play.

As for the comparison with Rhodes, BA's goals are similar to the type of goals JR scores, but personally I think he has more in his all round game - basically he's stronger and quicker.

Anyway this transfer excites me and is the one I've wanted to happen since relegation was confirmed. It'll be interesting to see who else is to come in (Ojo?) and who might leave, but at the moment a potential front 4 as follows gives me a little twinge down below!

Ojo-------Bamford-----Braithwaite
--------Assombalonga--------

Pace, guile and goals!!!

You can always count on WillMunny for a well thought out and balanced assessment. [^]

Still, I've got a bad feeling about this one. His goals are scruffy in the main. No brilliant finishing or electric pace over the top. He's a fox in the box and we already had the best one.

So you don't like him as a footballer. That's irrelevant, Monk obviously likes him and he's the manager not you.

"His goals are scruffy in the main." Reminds me of the goals Slaven scored.

"He's a fox in the box and we already had the best one." Not when Monk became manager we didn't.

His record speaks for itself at this level.

the only things that you need question are:
Will he suit our system/style this season? Only Monk and those close him know the answer to that question.(but you would guess he does otherwise why are we trying to sign him).

Is he good value for money?

Could we have got better for Wages and Fees?

What is his fitness/body like after the injuries?

The fee to loan Ings for a year would be considerably less than the deal for Assombalonga. If he stayed fit and recaptured some of his Burnley form he'd be a hit. However the likelihood would be he'd get crocked and we'd have to pray that Bamford, Gestede, Stuani and Braithwate (if they can actually play there) are good enough up front.

At Swansea he was buoyed up by the work done by three excellent predecessors - Rogers, Martinez and Laudrup. Failed to get Leeds into the play-offs last season - I saw them play Reading and they were atrocious. Anyone who puts Rob Green in goal must have a screw loose. Mark my words - Gibbo has dropped another clanger here.

Under Monk they finished 8th. Not sure they were that high under any of his predecessors.

Anyway, clearly you have some strange loathing of the man so it's little point engaging with you any more on this.

My mates who support Leeds said he transformed the way they played and were, to a man, gutted when he left.

But again, you have a blind spot regarding him so nothing I can tell you will change your mind. Hope you can get behind the team though.
