Fletcher out until February

Jesus😕

No wonder we wanted a forward. Its Ok we can get one in Jan. Hope Britt and Chuba can stay fit playing 3 games a week for the next month.

You seen the free agent list in the gazette? About 10 goals between them🙄

3 games a week? Not really. 2 games a week and then the international break in 4 weeks time.
We have sat - Tues - sat for the next 3 weeks. Then sat - wed- sat after then international break.

Then the Xmas period and FA Cup (I really doubt we will be bothered).

That's a lot of games with 2 CFs. You are asking them to stay fit and be rotated until Jan at the earliest. I would say that's a bit of an issue looking at the frees names bounded around. It's almost negligent not getting a forward in. I'm not even sure Bolasie would have been the answer with Fletcher out.

I guess we could go 433 with one forward and Roberts and Tav or Browne wide. That would ease the workload.

Im pretty confident our Neil will be ripping his hair out😂

I wonder if the decision to allow our only other striker to go out on loan to MK Dons is now regretted ?.
I don’t think any ‘free agent’ brought in would be other than a bench warmer anyway.
Better the devil you know at no extra cost.
Walker must be gutted too.

It's quite clearly 2 games a week so I'm not sure why people think it's 3.

The week runs Saturday to Friday... We play 2 games in that period.

If footballers can't play 2 games a week then they shouldn't be footballers.

The issue comes if we get injuries but that's for Warnock to deal with.

I've spent my ilfe thinking sat - Tues - sat is 3 games a week. I've learned something today👍

I hope a member of the press picks up Warnock or even Klopp when they moan about it. I don't think I've yet seen Martin Samuel saying 'it's actually only 2 games a week Jürgen' 😂 (what he should be saying is stop wearing your Rolex upside down.... Sorry I digress as it annoys me on Sunday supplement)

Betinelli/Stojanovic/Brynn
Dijksteel/Spence
Fry/Wood
McNair/Hall
Bola/Johnson
Roberts/Folarin
Howson/Wing
Morsy/Saville
Tavernier/Coulson
Akpom/Fletcher
Assombalonga/Browne

Maybe our business was done and it's only the injury to Fletcher that has had us looking to bring in a left winger?

Warnock said he was finding out about the extent of Fletcher's injury on Friday after the press conference. I wonder how it figured as Boro weighed up the options with the window about to close.
