Player Recruitment
Remember the story reported when Mowbray was Manager? Something along the lines that Boro's recruitment intel was non-existent and that he had to go back to his own roll-a-dex for information.

Somehow, at the time it seemed bad but not that bad. The team was in khaos and Mowbray's comments just seemed to reflect this.

Given the general improvement in standards under Karanka did we naively think other areas too would have improved? Personally I hoped a big chunk of the premier league 'windfall' would have gone on strengthening this department.

In actuality it looks like we are back to the Mowbray days (less the roll-a-dex).

What a waste!!!!!

Player Recruitment
To be fair Mowbray brought in Friend / Ayala (OK technically Mark venus) / Leadbitter. I thought Ledesma did ok for he cost.

The thing with mogga was he didn't really have much money to 'blow'. I guess Juke was a bit of a flop but still only 1-1.5mil. Mogga was getting by off Alex Nimley (best young player at city[rle]) and Big 'ish' Miller etc.

Karanka had his fair share of flops who cost more. I guess that's the hazards of having money. If it goes wrong it really goes wrong... See Saville / Fletcher and Rudy.
