So there you have it! Newyddion's Official Transfer Rumours™ of 2021

I do think we will re-sign Marcus Bettinelli, Ryan Alsop seems like a decent alternative to Jordan Archer could provide some decent competition for Betts and could step in if needed. Sean Morrison is the extra defender and leader that we've been crying out for (perhaps a player that Warnock could pass the torch along too?) Hayden Coulson sounds like he's off but still got until the end of the season to stake his claim. Andrew Hughes, steady eddie and a proper left back, nice to have the option and the cover.
Marvin Johnson has been unlucky not to get more game time during his time here and think he will move on for a new challenge. Adam Reach would be the perfect replacement for me and was sad to see him go. Never go back.. unless it's for Adam Reach.

Nathanial Mendez-Laing, I thought he was here for the long run but wouldn't be surprised to see him move on for more money. Kadeem Karris is out of contract and could do a job for us. Lewis Wing looks like he'll be off in the summer, Alex Mowatt out of contract, i'd be surprised if he hasn't already been considered. might well be in higher demand with Barnsley's recent turn of form might be one to watch..

Neeskens Kebano to much quality to keep hold of surely, Fulham would want a decent wedge for his services in any case. Nick Powell out of contract can produce at this level and his wages might be manageable with no transfer fee to contend with.
Yannick Bolasie, the enigma. Long sort after, always very much in demand, Again I would be surprised if we could meet his wage demands. Josh Windass going into the final year of his contract at soon to be relegated Sheffield Wednesday might be an option. Pretty sure we were linked with him previously.

Ashley Fletcher.. what a disappointment had high hopes for him when he arrived, but just lacked that bit of nastiness to push him to the front of the queue. No sooner had he hit his peak with boro than he struck down with injury. Wish him the best of luck at his new club. Sammy Ameobi, tall, unfashionable and perhaps lacking defensive contribution. I liked him while he was here and like the look of him every time I see him. causes problems. I would hate to have to defend against him.

Britt - lets get FAMARA DIEDHIOU!! can't wait, fingers crossed. a goal scoring striker!

Chuba Akpom, don't think he's lived up to expectations, whilst i'm not writing him off I do think we might sell him to get a bit of extra wriggle room in the summer transfer window.
Charlie Wyke.. I think he could do a job for us. I can see him coming back to settle some unfinished business!

There it is.. al in fair warned. Easier said than done. Pragmatic. Within budget imo and more accurate than the papers (as ever) no ITK info it is what it is. Hopefully we can keep hold of some of the loan players. Looking forward to seeing Marcus Browne back next season. Hopefully Nathan Wood goes back out on loan and we manage to keep hold of Fry, Tavernier and McNair.

Akpom, Wing and Coulson to bring in some cash for Morrison, Hughes and Windass.. it could happen?

Archer for Alspop? Missing for Morrison? Hayden for Hughes? Neeskens for Nick? Ashley for Ameobi? Chuba for Charlie? right i'm off to put a cheeky tenner on Boro to win the playoffs at 200-1 UTB!

PS: good luck to the oneboro forum.. remember it's ctrl+c then ctrl+v

that team would be relegated by the end of February.


if we didnt have Britt and Fletch you'd be shouting for 'em !

P.S remember its a team game, not a name blame game.

what team?


GK Bettinelli/Alsop

RB Fisher/Dijksteel
CD Fry/Hall
CD McNair/Morrison
LB Bola/Hughes

MF Tavernier/Harris
MF Howson/Morsy
MF Mowatt/Saville

RW Watmore/Spence/Browne
FW Diedhiou/Windass/Wyke
LW Powell//Reach/Ameobi

Looks like a solid 25 man squad to me. IF we can't keep hold of Kebano, Bolasie & Mendez-Laing

Holes plugged up and goals brought into the team.

No chance we bring Bettenelli back.

Wing will be sold, as will Coulson and I believe the first premier league club that comes sniffing round Spence he'll be gone too with a sell on clause inserted.

exactly !


is the 28 club, the number of points they would collect in a season 2️⃣8️⃣

what will be interesting is how many on your list will actually turn up -


🔚🔙🔛🔝🔜✔️
80-88 points with that squad imo.

maybe none of them will turn up? it's some stab in the dark if they all do. still more accurate than the papers tho x

Ched Evans is 33 this coming winter , I will be gobsmacked if we sign him. Grafter or not, he is not building for the future .
That said , it does look like a Warnock team , big and experienced.
Personally I prefer the Brentford model and would prefer a mix from
Famara Diedheiou CF - free
Haji Wright CF - £1m
Michael Smith CF - £1m
Charlie Wyke CF - free
Isaac Mbenza - RW CF - free
Siriki Dembele LW CF - free
Dion Charles LW CF - free
Jerry Yates CF RW No10 - £2m

Britt doesn't want to be here, Fletcher hasn't signed a new contract. I like Ashley Fletcher and I'm sure Britt will score a bolt load for his next club. I'm not playing the blame game, I've said I hope we keep hold of the players we have in on loan.


Diedhiou 10
Windass 7
Evans 10
Powell 12
Reach 6
Ameobi 3
Total 48

Britt 5
Bolasie 1
Akpom 4
Kebano 1
Johnson 4
Fletcher 4
Total 19

Looks like over twice as many goals on paper.. no doubt Britt will score more than Diedhiou next season. Bolasie is a total don. Akpom has only been with us five minutes, Kebano is prem quality, I don't think we could afford him, Johnson has been class for us every time he's played. I love Fletcher and think he could still play in the prem one day.

If I was involved in boro's recruitment, those are the players I would go for.. I'm not, I haven't heard any whispers, I'm not claiming to be some big deal or some hot shot. It is what it is. Just some football message board doyle.

4 Hall

Michael Smith 9
Haji Wright 9
Jorge Grant 15. 11 assists
Mbenza 5 - 8 assists
Siriki Dembele 8 - 12 assists
Dion Charles 18
Jerry Yates 20
Okenabirhie 12
Carlos Mendes Gomes - 12 3 assists
Rhys Healey 10
87 goals from the top 6 scorers , but also worth considering , the other 2 had
13 goals , 20 assists between them , Grant also has 11 assists -Makers and takers .
= 100 goals , 34 assists .
Beat that Newy lad .
Add Charlie Wyke and his 26 goals and 5 assists
and Joe Pigott and his 16 goals 5 assists in a poor team
and it looks even juicier .

I don't think we'll go that route tbh too many young lads in the mix. I just don't think we'll be building for the future, I think we have quality young lads in the squad at the moment and I think some battle hardened experienced solid champo players will be drafted in 2/3 year deals for lads who can have a good crack this season and next, decent sensible wages, tough enough to make the step up or move to another champo side.

Fry, Dijksteel, Bola, Tavernier, Spence & Browne as the young guns a few older heads in there to bring them on. the majority of the squad at their peak to do a job and no sitting on eggs waiting for them to hatch.

13 goals , 20 assists between them . Makers and takers . = 91 goals , 20 assists .

Mbenza looked class against us and I'm a big fan. I've stuck with Djed Spence (in my own head) first season testing the waters as a right winger further up the pitch. I think he will come right under Warnock.
Would Warnock be up for coaching the defensive side of the game into Mbenza? Would he need to? Like I say i'm a fan and would like to see us go for him a prem club comes in for Djed.

Siriki Dembele looks the part too, short and young.. doesn't strike me as a Warnock signing GREAT SHOUT tho

We both could add Boros home grown goal machine on a free to our lists
Charlie Wyke - 26 goals , 5 assists , but some are against it .
Me , it's a no brainer , no fee , give him the chance to play for his home town club, if it doesnt work out , he will still get a move elsewhere , and more than likely , for a fee , so no risk .
