Summer Transfer Window

Recommended Posts

We've needed a class CB for so long that it's a massive relief to get Ayala.  I'm hoping he will also bring the leadership qualities we badly need.

Fantastic signing, now all we need is a left back, a backup GK and a backup striker for Arma and we are in BUSINESS. ;)

They are free because somebody didn't think they were worth a new contract.  Hope they prove people wrong.

I don’t understand this mentality 😕

Why not? Ayala is very injury prone and according to Boro fans, like a cart horse. 

Dolan looks promising, but he needs to devlop.

We aren't getting closer to promotion.

Williams has to move on for me huge liability.

I have no issue with him as third choice. I have more concern over Lenihan as our starting CB. Not convinced.

Come on, i am quick to criticize but we could have not done much better than Ayala at this level. Even most Boro fans say he would walk into their defense. He has niggles, sure, but dont most of our backline? Really cannot fathom anyone being upset at this signing. 

No issues, just I don't think he's as good as people are believing him to be.

Great signing Ayala.  

Sign a good left back.  

Tosin back on on loan and a midfielder and it would be dream window.

 

 

I was thinking the same, Tosin alongside Ayala, with Cunningham (or similar standard LB) and Lenihan going to back up, would be a serious upgrade.

He wouldn't even be 6th choice for me.

Looks good, some great distribution from the back, chips in with goals, good defending.  Do they have a blunders highlights?

Looks very strong, at least as much so as Lenihan, and a lot better with the ball at his feet than I was led to believe previously. Especially some of those turns and dribbles! As long as his legs aren't going yet, this should be a good signing.

I do wonder if 3 years will prove a year too far as presumably one of our best paid players, but right now we simply need some quality there so I'm happy.

Great to have signed a quality experienced CB.

Could not have done better in the circumstances. 

Would love Tosin back also, and Cunningham hopefully.

Good CB should play on till 33-34 no problem.  Mulgrew not really a CB.

It always, always depends on the legs. Nous can make up for that a fair bit, but given how many goals we seem to ship on counter attacks, I'd be very worried if any of our defenders got slower.

There's playing on, and there's being first choice. 15k pw or so for a third choice CB will be a problem...hopefully one we don't have to experience though, certainly could still be top notch by the end of his deal.

Trav May require surgery. I’d get James Garner in on a six month loan now so we have cover, or fuck it and spend the £2m for Whiteman.

That could scupper move for left back though 

 

I think I could cope with Evans Johnson Buckley and Davenport for 6months more than I could Bell for another 6months

That's very, very bad news. He hasn't looked entirely on his game, and I was saying a day or so ago that I wondered if he had an underlying recent injury issue of some sort holding him back a little. I wonder if he was getting a bit of wear and tear there and it's just gone tonight.

I wanted us to bring Garner in anyway, but especially so now. I was reading earlier today that he scored 9 in I think 12 or 13 for Manure u23s. Some going for a midfielder meant to be in the Carrick mould.
