transfer targets already gone
 
 
Pulis just said in the press conference that a few of our targets have already gone.

Wonder who these few are?

So frustrating how slowly our club moves in transfers.

Only themselves to blame

If they were ever there to start with that is

He is managing expectations, we probably just dont have a financial pot to pi$$ in

Looking at championship alone, Benik Afobe, Oliver Burke, Ross Mccormack (we love a good project), Gary Madine, Kieran Dowell...unless we are looking at bargain bin.

Agree with Coluka

Reminds me of when the gazette sellers in town used to have those headline boards and you would eagerly buy the gazette when it headlined 'Boro new signing' only to rage as you flicked to the back and heard about how some middling midfielder returning from injury would be 'like a new signing' haha.

Marcus Maddison hasn't went anywhere yet.
He played for Peterborough on Wednesday.

At least we were making an effort [^]

"Wonder who these few are?"

I think by 'gone' he means unavailable. I mentioned before Traore didn't want to come back to Boro so soon - he's only just gone to Wolves. We wanted him on loan, Wolves were willing, but the player (or agent) thought it was the wrong move. So, he's gone.

Benik Afobe was a loan with the transfer agreed, lets not make out like he was available. Equally he has hardly set the world alight for £12 million, lets be realistic

He must be talking about Aleksandar Prijovic who signed for Saudi Arabinan club Al-Lttihad late last night or this morning.

We had been strongly linked with him. Shame as he is a top goal scored 9 in 13 games this season so far in Super League. Also has 4 goals out of 6 games in Champions league qualifiers.

One was the Sørloth from Palace (dodged a bullet there) and I'd guess Puncheon was another.

Defoe was an option certainly.

He said we've missed one or two. It begs the question: Dooesn't he know if it's one or two?

If it were these two I'm thoroughly happy albeit slightly worried if we have targets we consider inferior to those two muppets [xx(]

Pulis obviously means defoe and puncheon. Two old expensive crocks ..just like bolasie...can you see his liking for experienced players. Hardly inspiring stuff from the boro scouting team!

I am not overly fussed about any of the above. I know pulis knows more than me but I don't see any of them making us instantly more creative.

I have said before we have enough at the club to score goals. It's the XXXXXX tactics and formation that's holding us back. I don't overly see that changing just because we sign a winger or two.

I would love us to take a punt on Maddison. He's not signed for Derby but he linked up so well with Marriot last year they could go for him. I think at 1.5 - 2mil (ish) he's worth a shot. He's pacy and direct with a bit of an attitude who probably needs a step up a division[^]. He's an assist / crossing machine.

I really believe he will sign for a Derby or Leeds (both linked) and do well. He's not a Marvin Johnson who had stats that were not a patch on maddisons.

One was definitely Sørloth, he said he had an offer to come here on loan before heading elsewhere

Its always been difficult attracting players to the North East , any decent players who are available are bound to have a number of clubs after them , some can pay more than us ie Villa , some are more attracted to the Southern/London clubs [:O] not sure why [:D]

In all seriousness who had ‘gone’ that any of us think would make a real difference?

Isn't that just a phrase? Don't let that stop you from having a dig at Pulis though [V]
