The financial situation we are in dictates the type of player and where we have to look. Our marketplace would be; the out of favours, the young kid with promise, the old good oldie with hopefully a couple more years in him or scour the backwaters of europe for a cheap talent on nothing wages. Until we reach the land of milk and honey, that is our lot and no amount of profligate spending will bring that land nearer. So, for now, let's just back the powers that be and if it's next year then so be it but whenever it is I don't want to watch a yoyo team, spanked by every prem team and straight back down again. No let's hope that what we have plus the "ones for the future" will give us a fighting chance when we go up. Yes I know some of us will not see 50 again so Radz, let's not hang about eh.

I disagree. I reckon. 3-5 good ones for now would have cost less than the 10 maybes and 37.5 for the future ones we bought. let's get up before building for the future. Arse about face i reckon!

The Foreshaw debate is down to 3 things, Pedigree, we think he has that, Fitness, can he still play to a good enough level and then Form can he produce on any given day. They are the questions that need answers. Think the Fitness question is answered in the medical . So if he passes that it will be down to him reproducing some form in our current system. Pullis probably got rid to free up some wages and most likely thinks he don't suit his system or style of play.

Pulis also suspected to need to get rid of players before bringing others in so he had to make a choice.

18 Jan 2018 13:45:00
Lets see how he goes eh? Please.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 13:56:52
And we don't want the Pulis type of play do we? So he may be an excellent signing?

After final whistle against losing at Newport County aorta should have been straight onto their chairman about signing Wilmott. The guy was class. No more mention about the links to signing Peterborough midfielder, would love Clayton to re-sign. Can't understand our transfer policy of bringing in youth for the future when you need quality senior players to drive them on. Plenty of players who know and can hack it and shine in our league who won't break the wage structure. Glad we are moving some players on who clearly are not good enough. Onwards and upwards, here's hoping for signing of a decent striker who we have actuallly heard of.

God, I hope Aorta isn't buying players that would give me heart failure! 💔😂

Bit hasty to sign a player after 1 performance. my nana could have looked good against Leeds that day we were so poor.

Newport and peterborough. That good?

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 12:00:16
a centre back like James Collins would be great for this league, imo. Doesn't get much game time with west ham either. And a striker like Maupay from brentford who seems to be back up to Vibe. (Also scored against us recently)

Agree0 0Disagree

Great to see that the club have announced the £220k for Toby Nye's treatment has been raised and will commence next week. The Chairman, staff and fans have all contributed to raise £175k and the final £25,000 was donated by Sammy Saiz (may have been a club fine for gobbing on a Newport player but who cares) . Fantastic gesture, which shows we are one big family. I can't remember the last time this club felt so together. Ffs I'm welling up now! #ALAW. MM

Welling up again MM? Are there any occasions when haven't you had to be consoled by the SIL or at least wipe a little bodily secretion on a pair of her lacy numbers?

I hope Forshaw does well but there is always a doubt when players drop down pecking orders. Lasogga was top once, Bridcutt was great but he slipped down as hasn't reached his former heights. There are lots of players who have a good few seasons then fade never to return. That's the danger of getting players who lose favour. They are exceptions - like Ayling of course but there are not too many. Forshaw had got out of favour before Pulis arrived. The new manager has done his assessment and agreed with his predecessor and has got rid. One would assume that if we were to play against Middlesborough or teams with equally good midfields Forshaw wouldn't be as good as his opposite number. I believe Pulis is a better judge than Orta or Christianson. As always I hope I and Pulis are proved wrong.

Sanchez was out of favour at his time at Barcelona, was used very little by Pep and sold on to Arsenal. He came to England and has looked world class, even Pep wanted to resign him. Forshaw seems like he has a lot to prove, can we at least give him that chance. We have for the last few seasons taken chances on complete unknowns from various leagues with the majority being poor or out of their depth in this league. At least Forshaw has experienced this and a higher league with some success.

{Ed001's Note - Sanchez wasn't so much out of favour as he was disliked by Messi. That was why he was out of the team and sold.}

If that were true Hesslian we would not have signed Wood as he was a Leicester cast off. Didn't do too bad out of that deal. Sometimes it does not work for a player at one club but can be a good player at another club.

Why o why is there so much negativity- we needed a left back, got one we needed a CM, got one - now we are looking at strikers, i hope we get Messi or Kane or there will be more dissatisfaction

18 Jan 2018 09:48:36
Don't fancy Messi or Kane 😎

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 11:23:28
Agree. Messi is too old now. We need youngsters for the future. And Kane he's a flash in the pan.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 11:54:10
Isnt kane a southerner? Want english please. No kane or messi. And you can forget ronaldo or augero. Bloody foreigners. Plus they've never played chamionship football. Wont adapt to this league.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 12:18:30
Would be handy if you had a replica shirt with O'Kane written on it. just rub off the O'

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 12:40:11
Kane's is not proven at this level. Ronaldo and Meesi are the wrong ide of 30 and Aguero is too injury prone. All a massive gamble and one I don't think we orta take!

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 12:45:26
Does anyone actually have a shirt with O Kane on it?

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 13:16:00
O'Kane has a few Brightwhite.

Are they not the same player. Thought he was pulling a double shift.

Latest guess from the press for our new striker seems to be David McGoldrick of Ipswich. Thoughts?

Agree0 2Disagree

18 Jan 2018 11:46:48
Must be in the Daily Sport that one? ! At least I hope it was, because I would not like to see that one cross the line!

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 13:18:42
I wish it was the Daily Sport, at least there would be something interesting in it. Sadly just a carp website who are likely to just make up rumours rather than have any actual facts. 1. work out that Leeds need a striker
2. find striker at another club that could conceivably play for Leeds
3. write report linking Leeds to said striker
4. column inches filled
5. repeat with another striker
6. if any of the strikers linked actually move - claim the 'you heard it here first' credit

Amazing how some on here want players with championship and premiership experience and when we get them they become " cast offs " and other clubs rubbish. You can't win sometimes

Well said wex, total agree.

Gotta give boro guy a chance. I wanted someone who can run a midfield. Get stuck in and pass the ball. Seems this guy can do that. Form a bit sketchy but he has the experience in champ and prem! $2m a bit steep though. A bang em in striker and i reckon we could be in with a fighting chance of top 6.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jan 2018 23:19:54
All transfers except free ones are cast offs. Even Neymar. He was a Barcelona cast off.

Agree3 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 07:31:59
Yes Forshaw hasn't been playing much under the current gaffer but sometimes certain players aren't for a certain manager and it works out better at a different club with a different philosophy and a slightly different role. Just because he isn't for Pulis doesn't automatically mean he won't do a job for us. Everton just paid £20m for Walcott who wasn't getting in the Arsenal team - does that mean he is hopeless, a 'cast-off' and won't do well?

Agree4 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 10:05:05
js walcott means we can go get aaron lennon

Not good enough for Middlesborough. Enough said. He is probably another one who has had his best days,

Agree1 11Disagree

17 Jan 2018 20:23:18
Boro just got a new manager who prob is trying different things with the players snake bought. And Forshaw had an injury earlier in season too. Hadn’t played in about 5 weeks but is fit and ready to play again. A good solid experience midfielder in this league was what we needed so let’s wrlcime him as in my opinion it’s not a bad signing. MOT . just a good goal scoring experienced striker that will get 20 goals by end off season. Should do the trick. ⚽️⚽️⚽️👍😃

Agree5 0Disagree

17 Jan 2018 20:49:53
Had his days at 26 yrs old ? That's me screwed then

Agree6 0Disagree

17 Jan 2018 21:36:24
I'd be crap at boro as well Some players grow when they wear white My lad likes them scouse folk. His reaction when they signed the Ox wasn't repeatable I said at the time, maybe he needs a manager that believes in him, maybe Klopp sees something in the Ox. Currently my lads favourite player Now. Maybe TC can get this lad back to his previous form If so £2m is a good punt

Agree4 0Disagree

17 Jan 2018 23:21:09
I think Forshaw will turn out good for us for sure! 😂

18 Jan 2018 00:17:15
We will see!

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 02:50:31
You know how Pulis plays his teams. Unless he's a 'break yer legs' sit on defence player - he won't make the grade. Forshaw can pass the ball -no good for Pulis, could be good for us.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jan 2018 03:11:22
Gave you a thumb up george!

We needed cover in midfield now we have it - nuff said - can't argue with that.

I see what you did there George, very good.
