We all saw the debacle on Saturday we all know what’s wrong wilder knows what’s wrong.. so I think we are getting the stage now where instead of quibbling over amounts and lose time and therefore more league momentum we need to go and get the players wilder wants.

If he wants Larsen who clears wants away go and get him as losing out now will cost us in the long run anyway.

I’m not talking about blowing vast sums on punts I’m talking pay that little bit more to get deals done quicker.

The problem with get them by paying top € is as we've seen before, when they flop & we're stuck with a lemon on a big long term contract..

The little I've seen of the Norwegian fella on YouTube, is: all right root, & defending has been very average.. so would be a punt of Alves proportions..

I’m taking in general not just about strikers as we do seem to think saving small amounts over time ( look at hope at 2.5m) it’s clear we quibbled over that one but is this tactic really an advantage is it not better to pay that bit more ( again not huge sums) to get them in quicker.

I waiting to get the reduced fee a false economy in the long run.

It’ll come down to Gibson - don’t think he likes being held to ransom. Maybe Groningen moved the goalposts when we thought a deal was nearly done

Why are we concerned about over spending all of a sudden? We over pay on every deal. George Savile 500k, 12 months later we pay 7m, then more or less give him back. Payero, 12 months later give him away on loan. Britt 15m goes on a free. Etc etc.

it might be as much about financial fair play rules as it it quibbling over a few quid here and there. We all know we need 4 or 5 more players, paying over the odds for 2 means les in the FFP kitty for the others

Gibbo has plunged..plunged....and plunged again in the past...
We have become used to having a brilliant chairman....( I know he's not perfect) but I wouldn't want anyone else at the helm...
So...we just have got used to gibbo overpaying for *****...maybe he's just had enough of that and assombalonga was the icing on the cake
So I'll trust in gibbo to deliver once again and support the boro through thick and thin painful though that can be
As for wilder I love the bloke...he will take the boro up I have no doubt

One of the issues - maybe - is that we don't have £25m to spend (FFP) and with the transfer kitty we can't afford £12m on one player.......plus £5.5m on Forss and Hoppe and now absolutely desperate for 2 CMs. Which even with loans, could cost us a few million.
So easy for us to say just pay the £12m, but when we are getting pumped every away game because our midfield is being dominated/ over run.......have to look at the big picture and which areas need strengthening the most.

Jedi - The current situation according to this board is Groningen want 12m Euros and we have offered 9m Euros. Bologna supposedly were interested but lost interest when we offered 9m Euros, but might be intrested again if they sell their main striker. So I expect you would offer the 12m Euros?
