MORRISON SWITCH AGREED
Posted 04/08/07 20:14EmailPrintSave



Middlesbrough have agreed a fee to sell midfielder James Morrison to West Brom, Boro manager Gareth Southgate has revealed.

The 21-year-old was a member of Boro's 2004 FA Youth Cup-winning side and made his first-team debut, aged 17, the same year.

Under former boss Steve McClaren he also started in Boro's 2006 UEFA Cup final defeat to Seville.

But he found it difficult to break into Southgate's starting XI last term, making just 15 league starts for the north-east club.

And Southgate has admitted Morrison's desire to play a greater role could see him head to the Coca-Cola Championship club.

"He's down at West Brom having talks and they've agreed a fee with us," he told club website www.mfc.co.uk.

"It's a difficult one because with young players you want them to come through into the side - at the moment we are just waiting to see what he wants to do.

"It's whether there's a better guarantee of first-team football for him."

Southgate added: "We will know more over the next couple of days as to what he wants to do."

Portsmouth boss: No Yakubu move
tribalfooball.com - August 04, 2007

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has played down interest in Middlesbrough striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni.
"I like Yak, I signed him the first time round at Portsmouth and he was a good player for me," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.


"But there is nothing in that, I've not made an offer for him."

Though Redknapp has been active in the transfer market to date, he is prepared to spend again, if the right player is available.

He added: "You never know, you're always looking to improve.

"If the right player came along that would really give us a big push at this stage we would do it.

"You never sit back and think we're okay. We've changed in the summer and brought a few players in.

"If we're looking to finish as high as we did last year, we still need to keep improving."

re: GOOD MORNING

Anybody know much of him? .

Middlesbrough and Fulham will battle it out for Watford defender Jay DeMerit. The Cottagers are already set to sign Hameur Bouazza from the Hornets, and could cause Aidy Boothroyd more pre-season problems. American DeMerit is keen to stay in the Premiership and would welcome a move to Craven Cottage. However, Gareth Southgate has now entered the race. Boothroyd plans to put DeMerit amongst the clubs top earners when contract negotiations start next week. But DeMerit is keen to keep progressing and explained: In three years Ive gone from nothing to playing in the Premiership and Copa America. I still have a lot more to do. Im very happy either way but am considering my options.

Morning mate how are you? . Any news for me? .

Orlando2Boro Posted on 5/8 6:59
re: GOOD MORNING

I saw Demert in the Copa America. He is not a regular on the USA national team. we sent our B or even C team to the Copa just after winning the Gold Cup. He works hard. Never played in the MLS I don't think, went overseas. Like most USA players he played in University.

ray192 Posted on 5/8 7:03
re: GOOD MORNING

O_B

Not very promising then as such?.

Orlando2Boro Posted on 5/8 7:17
re: GOOD MORNING

I was hoping we would buy Szetela for 25K and Eddie Johnson for 1.5 and if we are gonna go after Demerit then I doubt we will bring in 3 Americans. So no chance of the other two which would be great talent for the money.

ray192 Posted on 5/8 7:21
re: GOOD MORNING

O_B

Tell us more of the other two then please mate .

morning ray , morning everyone.

nice and sunny in Acklam on the cotswolds

any chance of some brekkie ray

bloody cooker broke only 9 months old as well

looks like i was right about morrison going to the baggies eh as i said on here 2 weeks ago .

Shame i seemed to be wrong about deco

Orlando2Boro Posted on 5/8 7:32
re: GOOD MORNING

Danny Szetela came out the same year as Adu so all of the hype was taken by Adu. He has ton of skill and play defensive midfield or attacking like he did at the U-20's world cup this year. He score 3 goals. Could have gone to Everton a few years back when he was 16 but turned it down to stay with family. At 25k it is not even a gamble. We are in the hunt for him but he wants to go to Everton.
Eddie Johnson is a goal machine. The only problem is he has to be in the right state of mind. If he loses confidence then he is a waste of space, but when he is on like he is now and was in two years ago he scores goals like crazy. His first international he got a hat-trick. He was won the golden shoe at the youth world cup. He is the first MLS palyer with back to back hat tricks. Lots of people don't rate him because he plays in the MLS but he has pace, good in the air and plays well with his back to goal, also creative. I think he will be a major star if he gets in the right system in Europe.
Remember this is coming from a guy that booed him in 2006, big time. So he has changed my mind.

Morning Ray from Lapland. A bit misty here, but the forecast is for 26 degrees over the coming week, so I'm geting my trollies ready.
Good to read the reports of swift attacking football on Saturday, though I'm convinced that tales of two Yak headers in 5 minutes are a wind up.
Pint of Yorkshire to go with my reindeer sarny mate.

re: GOOD MORNING

i have heard this week we are going to sign 3 players . don,t know who or when but its going to happen.The lad who tells me this is on hol now till thursday but he has been pretty good so far .I text him last night about morrison and to ask if he heard anything about the players that are supposed to be coming in ,still waiting for a reply
i think at least 1 is going to be a loan signing though in defence.

re: GOOD MORNING

All good here Ray. Ta.
I hope our bubble doesn't burst next week. Given the inexperienced back line, we shouldn't be too surprised if Blackburn are too strong for us. However, when the likes of Woody, Pog and Huth are back, it will be some team.

10 CLUBS FIGHT FOR WONDERKID
EXCLUSIVE 10 clubs fight for Argie wonderkid
By Paul Smith 05/08/2007





Wonderboy Franco Di Santo will arrive in England this week and take his pick from TEN Premier League clubs chasing his signature.

The 18-year-old Argentine striker is hailed as the one of the world's top emerging talents.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea all want to discuss a one-year loan deal.

Advertisement
That would cost them about 500,000, but the big deal would come next summer when Di Santo would cost around 10million in a permanent transfer.

As well as the Premier League's big four, Di Santo is also wanted by Middlesbrough, Everton, Tottenham, Portsmouth, Blackburn and Manchester City.

The 6ft 4in youngster plays in Chile for Audax Italiano and has been described as the most exciting talent to emerge in South America since Diego Maradona.

Youngsters given challenge .

Southgate challenges Middlesbrough kids
tribalfooball.com - August 19, 2007

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate has challenged his young players to prove themselves good enough to keep the club's foreign signings out of the first team.
"Foreign signings are a fact of life because this is a global league," he said. "English lads are no longer just fighting with lads from Ireland or Scotland or Wales like it was historically.


"Now you can bring in the best talent from around the world, so it's a tough challenge for young players from this country.

"But they've got to make sure they embrace that challenge."

Boro's injury problems have forced Southgate to regularly dip into the club's academy for his matchday squads and he will continue to give local talent a chance to shine.

"At Boro, we've brought through a vast number of players from the academy into the first team," he said.

"Whether ours are better than anybody else's I don't know, but what they've had is an opportunity.

"Without them, we'd have been very short. It also give our club a bit of a heart beat to have players form the town.

"Boro are the sort of club that has pride in its local talent.

"But the challenge facing these players is to fight off the foreign invasion and make sure they are vindicated.

"They commit themselves to that challenge."

tribalfooball.com - August 19, 2007

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate has revealed he's been assured of his job by chairman Steve Gibson.
Both his predecessors, Bryan Robson and Steve McClaren, were given five years to turn the club around by Gibson.

"I'm very fortunate, I've got a chairman who deals in realism, not hysteria," said Southgate.

Barnsley are waiting for Middlesbrough's injury crisis to ease before moving for young centre-half David Wheater.
The promising 20-year-old, who had been due to spend the season on loan, has been drafted into a weakened first team at the Riverside - and his form may have given manager Gareth Southgate second thoughts on his plans.

Cheers Ray, that's hit the spot.
Had a busy old summer so far. Been on my jollies (managed to hit the only 2 nice weeks so far, just as well as we were camping)
And have been here there and everywhere with the eldests footie team. So not much time spent on here (Probably a good thing really)

re: GOOD MORNING

Sunny Devon. Had a great time and got burnt to a crisp
The teams been doing well, last of the summer tournament next Monday. Then the first at 11 a side the week after. Can't believe how quickly the summers gone. And can't believe how small my son looks in the HUGE goals he's going to be in from the start of the new season . Good for the strikers though!

Hello, can I get a cheese scone here?

borokaza Posted on 20/8 9:24
re: GOOD MORNING

I'm afraid eating more isn't the answer to this one, he's already one of the tallest in the team, there's just a huge size difference between the 7-a-side goals and the 11-a-side ones.
He'll grow into them eventually though.

Orlando2Boro Posted on 20/8 9:53
re: GOOD MORNING

If Sunderland bid 5 million you can't turn down that money, they just have to get their finger out and start signing some new people before deadline. Which I think we will see at least 4 come in. I still say we are in for Davies on loan.

Middlesbrough, Bolton keen on Celtic outcast Gravesen
tribalfooball.com - August 20, 2007

Middlesbrough and Bolton Wanderers are eyeing Celtic midfielder Thomas Gravesen.
The Denmark international appears to have little future at Parkhead after being criticised publicly by Hoops boss Gordon Strachan in preseason.
