Well we’re out of the World Cup , absolutely gutted but proud of how played and I think the national teams future looks brighter than it has for some time.

Now my immediate focus has turned to Boro , hope we get a couple of quality signings and ‘smash the league’ cant XXXXXX wait. 3 weeks to go

Window shuts 4 weeks today I think, if Traore is still here then I'll up my enthusiasm, at this point I'm struggling to muster absolutely any enthusiasm whatsoever.

Annoying isn’t it Exiled, and yeah keeping Traore and playing Bamford as our striker with a quality midfield addition, left back and a player for opposisite wing to Traore and I think we would be laughing. Don’t think that’s how it will go though, I think he sees Bamford as a wide left forward which is a massive waste , he isn’t nearly as effective as he is as the main man down the middle.

As the squad stands, I dont see us as finishing in the top 4 let alone the top 2, so cant get excited.

We need a left winger, a left back, a striker, maybe 2 and a creative pacy midfielder/number 10 and if funds allow, a right back too.

Sell Britt, Gestede, Johnson, Braithwaite and Fletcher.

If all that happens I might get excited. I am not convinced it will though

We can not go up with Bamford up front playing the way Pulis wants us to. Write the season off if Paddy starts up there I am afraid. However, I am totally confident that won't be the case.

How can you not be excited??

Apart from Besic, we have the same squad as last season, with a couple of very good signings!

Thats the squad that Pulis took from mid table to Playoffs in half a season.

Im very excited!!!!

Jayjay, do you not remember bamford scoring a lot of goals as our main forward until his injury against Bristol City ? Was probably Pulis best spell as our manager too in terms of results and it was the best we had looked all season in my opinion , not sure why your so convinced Bamford has to put weight on to make him a centre forward.

I said he needs to improve his strength. He is not a presence up front and I can guarantee that he won't play up front barring injuries. I have to agree with Pulis on this if indeed it goes the way I am predicting. We need someone more suited to doing the job up there.

If Pulis gets the results he got in his last 12 league games - we will 83 points next season which is a top play off place. He has bought 2 decent players so far which should improve us a bit further.


Looking at the team that finished us above us and knocked us out of the Play offs - Villa - they are forced to sell their better players. Teams coming down for the EPL - Swansea have sold some of their better players and a couple of WBA ones have gone.


I am more upbeat that last season on our chances, a season when many Boro fans were predicting promotion based on buying players who they did not know and had not played in the Championship and a relatively inexperienced manager.

Am I the only one that thinks our squad as it stands is quite good and, without the stuttery start we had last year, will probably be one of the pacesetters?

Obviously if people leave a lot will depend on how we replace them, but if the season started tomorrow I would be fairly confident of automatic promotion.

Fair assessment that redwurzel.

I agree with you atypical. i think we are only a left winger and a striker away from having an excellent starting XI.

Squad wise though we need cover for GK, both FB positions and possibly on both wings unless Chapman and Wing/Tavernier break through at last.

Thats all well and good redwurzel, but where is the creativity and pace?

We were pretty much one dimensional in the second half of last season and that, as yet, has not changed one iota

And here is me thinking there were still just under 4 weeks left of the transfer window to bring more players in. I must have misread that Pulis article in the paper saying we needed more class and creativity bringing in to really kick on this year as well.

I saw it. I was merely reminding him how long is left in the window and of Pulis' comments the other day in the newspaper. What is the point in saying "as yet" when there is a clear intention to improve the class and creativity in the squad and lots of time left to do it. But i think you already understood my point but are still a little peeved from something I corrected you on the other day. Lifes too short pal. Let it go.

Part of my confidence comes from the fact we're in for Ritchie, Vokes and Besic. Sign all 3 of them, or some very similar players, keep Traore and sell Britt, and I think we are strong favourites TBH!

We won't sign all three of them because they would cost the best part of £35M at least.

I would take Besic and Vokes and then maybe look at someone like Phillips.

But we may sell Gibson? Get £20m for him and its an outlay of only £15m, which we might get the best part of back for Britt.

We have spent £10M already don't forget. I agree with you in that it would be possible if we got £20M for Gibson and also managed to offload fringe players like Braithwaite, Johnson and Leadbitter.

Whatever happens, I have 100% trust in Pulis to get it bang on.

So thoughtful of you to remind me jayjayb [8)]

My comments were in response to redwurzels post though and he stated he was currently more upbeat about our chances (present time) hope that helps.

Pulis may well have intentions to improve creativity. Intentions and occurences are too different things though. Just ask Karanka about his intentions in January 2017 and move forward to what actually occured by February 2017.

Wasn't it something to do with acting like a chav exiled? I seem to remember you getting agressive and saying something like "ere, run along kidda" or words to that effect.

I was only joking about you having a BMX and tucking your white socks into your tracky bottoms though kidda innit!

I'd forgotten about it until I realised you were still obviously a bit sore from my quip. I take it back if it upsets you that much. I don't want to upset anyone. Not in my nature.

Haha, I'd check back on that if I was you. Seems you have some pent up aggression because I put you in your place. I'd let it go mate. All this anger seems to be eating you up inside mate and it's obviously ruining your time spent on here. Personally I'd forgotten all about it until you just mentioned it. Let it go mate, you'll feel better for it.

How have you got me "sussed" (is that some of your street talk again kidda?). You can't be older than 20 so our paths will never have crossed even if you do live in the same area. My son might have given you a good hiding for being cheeky though i suppose! he can't abide chavs either!
