    To say he is only 19 now he was used a lot last year. It is only because of the new experienced strikers they have now that are keeping him out of the starting line up.

    Seems sensible to me. 😀 If I suggested 9m then the message board would go mental saying why is the club paying so much for him. Let’s keep it based on the facts (albeit from Nixon) otherwise people will get carried away. 👍

    Where has the £7M come from I thought that it had risen from £5M to £6M? Either way Mowbray is not going to pay that much outright just like he didn’t pay £3M for Armstrong. We would be paying for potential, which is fair enough, so it will be a lowish figure with lots of add ons,subject to success criteria. This will to get to a final potential figure that Forrest would be happy to disclose to disgruntled supporters, just like we did with Newcastle. It won’t be a flat fee of 4,5,6 or7 million. Mowbray won’t want to take too much of a gamble. Payment based on delivered success like promotion or playing for the full England team is fair enough and would be reflected in his increased value.

    I asked the question to some Peterborough fans and they said that the majority appreciated what he did for the team ie goals and assists, but he dived a lot wouldn’t tackle and didn’t track back. Although I would love him to join us for his end product, I can’t see how that behaviour would go down well with our team.

    You and me too. That is going beyond tongue in cheek.

    Tony won’t want to risk buying him until he is convinced he is the same player that he was before the injury. That’s why I think that he is playing the waiting game. I would expect him to come in on Monday as a loan with a view to buy in January. Being in his last year of his contract Boro would most likely prefer a sale if they don’t want him anymore so it makes sense. We certainly need a player like him when we are chasing a game.

    I’d go with the same as you but Gestede instead of Smith. Gestede and Chapman on loan.

    Maddison (sorry I keep going on about him) was brilliant last year in those circumstances repeatedly playing superb balls over the top for Jack Marriott to run on to and score his goals. Armstrong is the same height as him, just as quick and probably a better consistent finisher. That’s why I think Mowbray will be trying to sign Maddison, in my humble opinion.

    Very good point

    So do I.

    Maddison and Nmecha now please.

    That may mean Rudy Gestede could be surplus to requirements. As long as he is not a crock after his injuries, he would be an excellent cheap target man to get in. Thoughts?

    Gallagher probably.

    If Middlesbrough would agree, we could get him on a season long loan with an agreed purchase price. Then we would get best of both worlds i.e. he’d be tried and tested. Even though his contract would be up they would still be eligible for compensation, so an agreed price at this stage may work for both parties.
