2m 'offer' is a no-go for Julio
TONIGHT'S CARLING CUP SECOND ROUND PREVIEWS Boro v Northampton, 8pm
By Simon Bird 29/08/2007
Boro take on Northampton tonight with boss Gareth Southgate warning clubs to keep their hands off Julio Arca.

The Argentine midfielder is a target for former club Sunderland where he was a cult hero but Southgate is refusing to sell.

"It wasn't strange Sunderland were linked," said Southgate. "But there is no way he will leave, he is one of our most important players. "2m was mentioned but it would take about five times that now."

Southgate meanwhile, has signed midfielder Mohammed Shawkey from Egyptian champions Al Ahly for 250,000 after a glowing reference from international teammate Mido.

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:10
re: GOOD MORNING

O_B

I heard a rumour we are after c/b who can play l/b as cover for Taylor aswell?.

Orlando2Boro Posted on 29/8 6:12
re: GOOD MORNING

No sadly I think Alves and Kone are not coming. Kone is going to Seville and will be announced today. Alves is in the news and back training with his club, not a mention of boro. Kone is going to Sevilla for only 6 million pounds. Surely we could have matched that. I think we are looking on the cheap.

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:12
re: GOOD MORNING

Plodding on as usuall. looking for that lotto win that never comes. As long as ive got the Boro to keep me happy i'll be fine, hows you anyway?

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:13
re: GOOD MORNING

O_B

I agree i think we could unless he now has other targets.

Orlando2Boro Posted on 29/8 6:14
re: GOOD MORNING

Does Stenfonvic play l/b and c/b? I heard a rumor awhile back we were in for him for like 750K.

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:15
re: GOOD MORNING

PAC79

I'm very good thanks looking forward to the match tonight .

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:16
re: GOOD MORNING

Why the Fook would we be after a CB? POG, WOODGATE, RIGGOT, HUTH, WHEATER! LB TAYLOR, ARCA(maybe), POG.

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:16
re: GOOD MORNING

O_B

I'm not sure about l/b mate but he certainly plays c/b.

Orlando2Boro Posted on 29/8 6:16
re: GOOD MORNING

Gets back to that "masterplan" if they had a list and knew who they wanted why the foook is it taken them to deadline to get a deal done? I love the guys we have bought in but now it is looking like panic time.

Orlando2Boro Posted on 29/8 6:17
re: GOOD MORNING

I agree Pac79, we have Arca and POG to back up Taylor. Need a freaking R/M and Striker.

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:18
re: GOOD MORNING

Sorry Ray didn't mean to shout. You goint tonight?

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:18
re: GOOD MORNING

PAC79

Thats the problem though Poga out till Christmas and i dont think he has any intention of moving Arca back as cover as he's now made l c/m his own .

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:19
re: GOOD MORNING

O_B

I agree why wait till now .

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:20
re: GOOD MORNING

PAC79

Yes mate i'll be there .

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:21
re: GOOD MORNING

R/w why has that not been sorted ffs thats what gets me .

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:23
re: GOOD MORNING

I think our best central mid is Rock and Arca but if injurys happen he has the possibility of playing Arca at LeftBack. I like Boatang but to go forward i think we have to look at these two(not many people are fans of Rocky) i am!

Orlando2Boro Posted on 29/8 6:24
re: GOOD MORNING

What is up with this guy Antunes that we might be after? It looks like he is a c/b.

Orlando2Boro Posted on 29/8 6:25
re: GOOD MORNING

Looks like we are gonna sign Swanky.

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:26
re: GOOD MORNING

PAC79

I agree with that but as i say i dont think the Gate wants to disrupt Arca now he looks very good were he is.

Timboi Posted on 29/8 6:27
re: GOOD MORNING

Morning Ray!

Feeling a bit tired today so a coffee (nothing too strong as I'm not used to coffee - strong ones make me a bit jittery) will probably be ideal.

I'm working off-site for a couple of days and won't be back until the transfer window is about to shut. Here's hoping we do some nice business whilst I'm not looking!

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:27
re: GOOD MORNING

O?B

I dont whats happened about him it's gone quiet.

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:28
re: GOOD MORNING

For 4 years we have needed a right mid. Our strikers went and i think we have possibly replaced them. but 4 years on we still need a right midfielder! Everyone says its hard to find a left sided winger we got 3! but a right sided one!

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:28
re: GOOD MORNING

O_B

Shawky sounds like a done deal 250.000 .

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:30
re: GOOD MORNING

Tim

Morning mate how are you? . A coffee not to strong there you go . Lets hope for at least a couple of signings yes .

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:31
re: GOOD MORNING

PAC79

I know when we let Morrison go i thought we have someone ready but no .

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:33
re: GOOD MORNING

sorry Ray but add 1mill infront of that. Talks was the two of them for about 3M. Supposedly we pulled out the transfer of the striker.

Middlesbrough to hold Adriano talks today
tribalfooball.com - August 28, 2007

Middlesbrough will hold talks with Inter Milan striker Adriano today.
Adriano has been made available by Inter and is in negotiations with Manchester City and West Ham. The Sun says the Brazilian will also speak with Boro officials today.

Ssn report Adriano rejects whu.

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:35
re: GOOD MORNING

PAC79

I know it did but strong stories 250.000 for him but obviously we will have to wait and see .

Orlando2Boro Posted on 29/8 6:36
re: GOOD MORNING

He rejected WHU because it was a loan and he doesn't want to go out on loan. Man City is talking about 70K a week. I don't think we will pay that.

Middlesbrough won't scramble in market - Southgate
tribalfooball.com - August 28, 2007

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate insists they won't be scrambling for any new signings this week.
He said: "I am comfortable with the squad I have got. You are always looking to strengthen if you can, but it depends on the right players coming available.

"If that doesn't happen then I will be in no rush to spend what little of the transfer fee comes my way.

"We will have 15 or 16 league games to play before January and I will use the opportunity to assess the squad and see if we need to make any improvements then."

Orlando2Boro Posted on 29/8 6:39
re: GOOD MORNING

CRAZY!

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:39
re: GOOD MORNING

Quality! would not say no. Mido and Adriano up front. Just a thought and ive mentioned it to other Boro fans how about Aliadier? sp? on the right? He has one thing more than that the other managers have tried with strikers, Pace.

Timboi Posted on 29/8 6:41
re: GOOD MORNING

If Man City offer 70k, that's us out, unless Adriano likes the look of Boro and we can guarantee him first-team action (we can't but more likely than @ Citeh).

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:41
re: GOOD MORNING

PAC79

I said that on sunday night Boateng r/w is a fooking joke.

Man City's Samaras on way to Middlesbrough
tribalfooball.com - August 28, 2007

Manchester City are set to sell Georgios Samaras to Middlesbrough.
The Greece international is expected to join Boro in a 2.5 million deal, says the Daily Mail.

Timboi Posted on 29/8 6:45
re: GOOD MORNING

100k? Well that's us definitely out, I'd say. How desperate do WHU seem lately? They've been throwing stupid money at people but keep getting turned down.

Ray - although I'd preferably not play George on the right again, he did surprisingly well IMO. If we get a decent right-wnger, I can't see where George is going to fit into the first team unfortunately.

Middlesbrough join Everton interest for Bolton's Nolan
tribalfooball.com - August 28, 2007

Middlesbrough have joined the interest for Bolton Wanderers captain Kevin Nolan.
The Daily Express says Boro have joined Everton in the race for Nolan, who could become available at Bolton for 5 million.

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:48
re: GOOD MORNING

Ray192
I agree Boatang as Right Wing is a Joke. but nobody,not even the barcodes can say he had a bad game on sunday. As a Right mid Yes, as a winger never.we need someone to get down the line and cross the ball. And for all the people who slate Downing, get a life, a home town lad who does good and all you can do is get on his back!

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:49
re: GOOD MORNING

Tim

This is the problem now Gareth must be strong enough to tell him he's not in his first team now instead of giving him a roll anywhere to keep him happy . Yes he did play well but imho if we had a r/w on sunday we would have won thats the difference.

ray192 Posted on 29/8 6:51
re: GOOD MORNING

PAC79

As i just said to Tim

This is the problem now Gareth must be strong enough to tell him he's not in his first team now instead of giving him a roll anywhere to keep him happy . Yes he did play well but imho if we had a r/w on sunday we would have won thats the difference.

from what ive seen of Nolan i like him, dont know if thats what we need tho?

Neither do i he doesn't play r/w as far as i know anyway?. Very good player though box to box who can score aswell .

Middlesbrough boss Southgate: Dong will get 90 minutes
tribalfooball.com - August 28, 2007

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate intends to hand South Korea international striker Dong Lee Gook a full 90 minutes in tonight's Carling Cup tie with Northampton.
"We'll have to see who's fit, I don't want to make lots of changes but might be forced to make some," said Southgate.

"Dong Gook needs 90 minutes under his belt for his sharpness."

PAC79 Posted on 29/8 6:58
re: GOOD MORNING

I agree with you both, unluckily Gareth gave Boatang the Captancy, maybe i say that wrong because at the time that was the right decision. but we have moved on. I am still a big Boatang fan, he cant pass the ball but he suprised me with a fantastic cross field pass on sunday. i think his best hope for the coming season will be Sub appearences.
