We have just got to accept that a was a complete rollocks selling him so cheaply, and to Leeds of all clubs.
Bamford and Traore in the same side. Some people are never happy.
The money we've squandered on strikers and that conman goes and flogs off the only decent one (which was blindingly obvious to anyone who believes football should be primarily played on grass, not in the air) because he has the nerve to suggest he should be playing up front instead of the human/donkey hybrid Gestede. To Leeds of all clubs too.
OK Gaz, name me a better Boro one since 2008?
It's not close.
(As for Maccarrone, the most he scored in any league season was 9).
Bamford has 6 already.
Thankfully most Boro fans appreciate how very very good Patrick was and is and wish him well.
Most have already realised that pulis poured petrol on the bonfire monk built.
Bamford wrote in an article last week that he struggled at some clubs because he thought the managers at those clubs thought because he was middle class everything had been put on a plate for him in life and thus they didn't beleive in him. He said he had no problems with foreign managers, they didn't seem to be affected by the English class system, so I think we can take AK out of the criticism, but it does leave a potential question mark over TP's and GM's judgements of him. Why sign 3 strikers when we already had 2. Surely 4 is enough?
Its a shame how many good strikers we've wasted because the manager/head coach wouldn't just play them as a bloody striker. Stuani, Bamford, Rhodes, Maccarone to some extent, Fletcher last season out wide.
Garry Monk. What an absolute pudding. I don't think any single individual has set the club so far back. Took the achievements of the previous 4 years and p****d them all up the wall. If we had appointed Pearson we would be playing in the premier league today with bamford and Traore in the team. Despise the bloke.
I'd have been a lot more accepting of that if he hadn't have then gone and pi$$ed a staggering £7m up the wall to get George Saville.I think the club was desperate to save money and that was part of Pulis' brief.
Unfortunately that usually translates to the best players leaving, whilst the club are left stuck with the ones they would ideally want to move on. Its a short term view and, in this case, one which the club I'm sure has regretted more as time passes.
