Chris Wilder Press Conference

I got the impression those 2 signings were a lot more advanced than 'we've made bids'.

Wilder on Saturday evening made out they were virtually a done deal and he said both nearly made the squad for WBA.

If they were only at the 'bidding' stage, then they were nowhere near being close to the squad.

Either Wilder was lying last Saturday, or something has gone amiss.

I'll be disappointed if no journalist/reporter asked him about it.

It's the elephant in the room.

And also are those deals still likely to happen or are they now in doubt or off the cards completely? He doesn't have to name names so can't see why it'd be a problematic question.

Seems like an obvious one though.

Exactly.

It's just such an obvious topic that most (if not all) 'Boro fans want to be updated on.

Honestly can't get my head around peoples anger at our lack of signings. Yes be frustrated but what do you want the club to do? pay 15 million for Britt or 7 million for saville and cripple the club for years just for the sake of having someone through the door!!!

I take the delay as a positive, shows we have a high bar and are aiming for tough to get signings.

Fair enough, the very first question was about the 2 or 3 being close.

No pressing him on the details when he deflected with his answer though.
