The other 'spectacular signing'....

Will be revealed by the end of next week, and if we get him it will be brilliant.

Plays in Germany, and is naturally a centre-midfielder

We'll also be paying a record fee for him.


Furthermore, a right-sided player thats being brought in will also be coming from europe, and a league that hasn't finished yet.

Both players are the same nationality.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Don't you just hate it when they don't give you enough to make an educated guess and leave it that loose that we could sign anyone and they will say I told you so

A central mid-fielder from Germany and a right-winger from Europe

Ok my guesses are Rafael Van Der Vaart of Hamburg and Wesley Sneijder of Ajax [not strictly a winger but could probably play wide]

Next please

who is marcus the carcus?

im the guy who posted up a while back in my involvement in a transfer of a premiership player to a major european club. (which is still going to happen and will prove you doubters wrong about my reliability!!)

other than that, im chairman of the Northern Ireland Middlesbrough Supporters Club - hence the name NIMSC

I talk crap a lot, but both this 'rumour' and my previous story about being a middle-man in a premiership player's move is genuine.

'league that hasn't finished yet' - Must be Spain.

Riga has signed a new deal, but he and rafael Van der vaart of Hamburg?

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

If it is Mintal, then I'd seriously be considering that Gareth has replaced MacKay with a copy of FM.

Struggle to find another Slovak though... although the Norwegian League is still going, so it could be Marek Sapara at Rosenborg.

All complete guesswork of course from a probably bull first post!

NIMSC Posted on 13/6 12:22
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

re: boro hp's post...

You'd be suprised how many clubs actually do use the Football Manager database for scouting. Personally, im the Northern Ireland based researcher for FM and is one of the main reasons I hear things before even the media get wind (knew of Nani's move to Man Utd 3 weeks before it was first reported)

You'd be suprised how many of my counterparts in other countries are also scouts for major European clubs and many also work for FIFA or UEFA. One such example of a manager putting to use the 'CM/FM' database was a phonecall I got from Lawrie Sanchez when he first took the Northern Ireland job, asking me to research for players who hold 'British' passports and hence could qualify for any of the home nations. Never came to anything, the likes of Calvin Zola just weren't the players he was looking!!

Thank f*** he didnt go down that avenue in the end, and he actually managed to put together a passion-fuelled N.Ireland team.

dave_catching Posted on 13/6 12:25
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

All the western european leagues have finished apart from spain. Just the scandinavians and Russians still going, but that's more because they've just started rather than nearly finished.

The Van De Vaart call is plausible mind. He's had a few years at hamburg. They finished 7th, but had a very good 2nd half of the season. He might fancy something new.

Can't see him being a 'record fee' more than £8.15mill though. He supposedly went to Hamburg from Ajax for £3.5mil + % of sell-on fee.

i can see Paylor going with it mind.

pogroy Posted on 13/6 12:26

NIMSC, in your opinion how good are these signings going to be?

dave_catching Posted on 13/6 12:27
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Boro_HP Posted on 13/6 12:28
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Re: NIMSC

I can quite see that. After all it is just a big database of players worldwide, pretty much an invaluable tool for any manager. Not only that, but it gives you hints as to the current contract/wage of targets, as well as recent history.

I'm sure there are more 'professional' ones that cost a huge order of magnitude more (opta or the like) but for 29.99 its really a bargain. Certainly as a starting point for a scouting team its not bad, you can do a lot worse than pull some of the better names out of the system and get your scouts to assess them for real.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

posted about a month ago that Rafael Van Der Vaart was possibly available.. rated as a top creative player.. thought he'd just moved to germany last year..

Dutch international.. could be a quality signing.. tho can't say i've ever seen him play..

NIMSC Posted on 13/6 12:34
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

the centre midfielder would be a brilliant signing and would certainly be exciting, although suprised at his potential willingness to join us without the prospect of European football, however, we are putting an extremely good offer on the table to him from what I hear. The club he's at are also willing to listen to offers, but with Hargreaves value touted at £16m and this player potentially being rated higher in germany, i think the offer we're making to the club is a 'bargain' for us, despite the record element.

i dont know much about the right-sided player, but what i've seen of him, he stood out for his club.

Big_Shot Posted on 13/6 12:34
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Wherever he is, Van Der Vaart signing for the Boro will finish forza_boro off.

dave_catching Posted on 13/6 12:36

A_New_Era-Damit guessed the right winger as a player who plays in the Dutch league, which finished 2 weeks ago. if he is right the clue was wrong.

I'm sorry but i cant believe that Van Der Vaart would join us. Sky sports news only last week claimed Arsenal were interested in him and Juventus etc have tried to sign him in the past. If Gibbo pulls this one off i will be amazed.

jeff_potato Posted on 13/6 12:43
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I read an interview a while back with a Chelsea scout, they too use Football Manager on players from the key leagues because the statistics are so accurate in some cases that they can pinpoint exactly what they're looking for.

Also, didn't one team give the production company a serious phonecall as to how they got all their wage structure? Can't remember who it was.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

NIMSC - I realise you don't want to give out too much information in case the deals fall through and of course we all love speculating who our next signing is going to be

In fact most of the people on the boardspent yesterday afternoon watching Sky Sports News while typing away furiously reading the messageboard.

But could we please have some better clues...please!

kermit_the_smog Posted on 13/6 12:49
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I'd be amazed if we signed Van Der Vaat, i'd have to applaud the management for that. But, can't see it personnally.

However, gazette says we're trying to complete a double Turk swoop including a central midfielder? (The other obviously Tuncay)

Gaizka_Mendieta_14 Posted on 13/6 12:51
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I think football manager is a clever way to discover players, why not use it?
Harry Redknapp uses it to spot talented players and look at some of the players he has signed for Pompey.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

If Marcus_the_carcass is right I'll drop my bacon sandwich...Bastian Schweinsteiger would be a phenomenal signing...easily 'spectacular' and they have just signed Ribery so do Bayern want to keep him

Maybe Huth had a word with Gareth and said he was available!?

DialADuck Posted on 13/6 13:06
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Or

Diego - Werder Bremen

Elano - Shaktar Donetsk (i think he's a winger anyway)

Vinny_Garstroke Posted on 13/6 13:33

Odonkor has always looked like Germany's equivalent of Shaun Wright-Phillips.

Brick_Tamland Posted on 13/6 13:37
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Two weeks ago I read in Kicker Zeitung an article about Schweinsteiger in which he laid the blame for Bayern's failure to defend their title firmly with their coach. Wonder if this means he is on the way out if the right bid comes along?

damit1968 Posted on 13/6 13:39
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

What the Shaun Wright-Phillips who scored over ten goals in his last season for Man City?

Anyway, SSN are now saying the other Turk is a winger so NIMSC is probably talking cobblers

Whitebait Posted on 13/6 13:55
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Riga and Van Der Vaart

Yes Riga signed a new contract and yes he was born in Ghana but contracts mean jack these days and he represented Netherlands in the Under 21s and hasn't played a full international yet for anyone I don't think, correct me if I'm wrong.

ravsplumber Posted on 13/6 14:09
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Just back from TOTT so feeling ultra-delusional today. I'm going to go for two names already mentioned on here, Diego and Joaquin.

COME ON BORO!! It's SAMBA TIME!!!!

boromaff Posted on 13/6 14:12
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

the right sided player could always be a full back: -

Diego and Dani Alves, or Diege and Cincinho

Surely not?

damit1968 Posted on 13/6 14:14
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

ravsplumber - the game involves naming two players of the same nationality.

A central midfielder playing in Germany and a rightwinger [probably] playing in a league that has not finished yet [probably Spain]

NIMSC appears to have gone home, if he hasn't has anyone got the right answer[s] yet?

Jonathan11 Posted on 13/6 14:18

Brick_Tamland Posted on 13/6 14:35
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I doubt Bremen would let him go.

If I was to believe any of this then I would go with Schweinsteiger and Odonkor. I don;t think people appreciate how much coverage the Huth transfer got in Germany last summer. He is very popular in the national side and is seen as the partner for Per Mertesacker. Along with Ziege, Boro are quite a well-known name in Germany.

Chelsea's Head Opposition Scout is a former Champ Man (Footy Man) addicit. (Andre Villas Boas). He's only 28 but he compiles reports for each player as well as DVDs. They was the leaked report that was floating on the internet about Newcastle which he put together.

Chappy_112 Posted on 13/6 14:46
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Elano is the best partner along with the Diego one if you ask me. He's quality on FM as well and is a right midfielder. The Ukraine league hasn't finished either.

Jonathan11 Posted on 13/6 14:47
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

'mon it happening. He's only at Shakhtar too and i've not seen him linked with any big clubs.

Guisboro Posted on 13/6 14:52
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I saw Bremen v Cela Vigo in Uefa Cup back in March as I was in Bremen with work.

From that game I have to say Diego certainly didnt stand out, but while that opinion is obv only one game, it's better than rating him from Champ Man

ravsplumber Posted on 13/6 14:53
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Chappy_112 - you're right the Ukrainian League has a 3 month winter break and that's why they're just finishing up now.

Diego and Elano it is then!

COME ON BORO!!! IT'S SAMBA TIME!!!

Jonathan11 Posted on 13/6 14:55
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

He's very good, Guisboro. Scored 13 league goals for Werder last season and it was his first season, including one goal from inside his own half. He's quick, got great skill and he's good in the air too, as evident by his goal against England.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

See I look at the Bayern squad and I see them with Schweinsteiger and Ribery as their only wingers, so I can't see them getting rid of Schweinsteiger for that reason alone, having both on each wing is probably the idea.

Guisboro Posted on 13/6 16:19
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Odonkor - Trev to his mates - only joined Betis for € 6.5 million, signing a 5 year contract in August last year, and only played 11 games due to injury.

Bit strange Betis would be selling so soon after getting him and missing most of the season through injury.

Link: "Trevor"

NIMSC Posted on 13/6 16:21
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I wasnt going to come on and blatently say "We're signing A and B"

Amazed at how many responses have been given here, but certainly along the right track. Whilst 'Tuncay' may not be seen as a spectacular signing by a lot, the next one (assuming this deal is done by the end of next week) is brilliant and would make the Geordies extremely jealous.

Im not going to confirm or deny which players it is, but they have been mentioned on this post.

Obviously you've got to pick out which ones would be regarded as 'spectacular' and certainly three centre midfielders touted here would be.

On another note, found Wakey's post extremely amusing.

And contrary to another post, I was making the opposite journey - home to work, rather than heading home from work :P

Jonathan11 Posted on 13/6 16:21
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Odonkor seems injury prone reading that.

"His Bundesliga debut took place in early 2002 against FC St. Pauli. He had become a regular in the Borussia Dortmund line up, wearing shirt number 11, before being diagnosed with a cartilage injury in his knee. After his rehabilitation, he additionally had to undergo inner meniscus surgery which meant he made only one appearance for Dortmund throughout the remaining season."

"Odonkor moved to Real Betis in late August, 2006. He was purchased for € 6.5 million, signing a 5 year contract. He was officially unveiled to the press on September 8th. Odonkor missed a large portion of his first season at the club due to a serious knee injury picked up on international duty."

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Deals very much alive guys and one will be completed by Friday all being well despite the individual officially talking to three other clubs I'd still be hopeful we'll get the player.

Of interest too at the moment... the Smith rumour is true, an official approach to man utd has been made AND permission to talk to the player is granted. However, Ferguson would like to keep the player, and any other players possibly leaving man utd till at least a week/two weeks into their pre-season training schedule. One to definately follow in the media though.

NIMSC Posted on 18/6 18:46
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Im not confident Yearby, but the club are. The other three, on paper, are much bigger clubs and offer european football.

As i've stated already, the centre midfielder would be 'spectacular'.

The right-sided player's season is now finished. I've heard nothing more since last week about our interest in him although.... another right-sided player, again playing in Europe has been targeted.

Basically for the right-side, boro have earmarked three players. The one I mentioned intially WASN'T the club's first preference, however, their first preference is understood to be available now, according to press reports in his own country at the weekend/end of last week. That being the case, I'd suggest this may be the reason our spanish-based player link has maybe gone quiet, but certainly not dead.

The third player we targeted for the right is young, enthusiastic and playing in england. Certainly the most realistic move of the three, but wouldn't be 'spectacular'.

NIMSC Posted on 18/6 18:48

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I'm know round these parts for being very anti Routledge so I don't rate him at all. I have a bit of a problem with diminutive pacey wide players with no end product. They seem to get away with not performing as they seem to catch the eye more, whilst far superior players like Downing get all the flak.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

My guess would be Lincoln as well - can't say if it's spectacular or not because I haven't seen him play.

Got no idea on the right sided player - although he would have to be another Brazilian if my first guess is right.

According to my logic, the Spanish target was Mustapha Riga? And the players are the same nationality from the original post, Riga is Dutch correct? Therefore the spectacular midfield must be Van der Vaart?

And also the young ambitious English player that wouldn't be spectacular? Giles Barnes I reckon

Brick_Tamland Posted on 18/6 19:24
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Through a process of elimination it would sound very much like the player we are after is Schweinsteiger. I would love to see him here and I'm sure Huth will be doing what he can to persuade him to come. Anyway, I guess we'll find out. If we don;t get the player in question, NIMSC, are there other midfielders who are targets? Did you hear anything about the Icelandic right-back?

HepDude Posted on 19/6 8:06
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

One problem with all of this "signing" is that you can't guarantee weekly football to 12 big names.

While we certainly don't have 12 big names yet, nevertheless we are running out of places to put people on the field whom we are paying more than 8 million for:

Tuncay - has to be guaranteed starting place
Yakubu - If he is still there on Sept 1st, likewise
Mr Spectacular - Our new record siging will start
Downing - A lock if he is still here
Mr New Right Wing - We are more desperate for him than anyone, a starter for sure
Boateng - No defensive midfield signings even rumored
Woodgate - Of Course
Huth - We paid millions and bent the rules for him to ride pine ? Not.
Pogatetz - Our top defender of last season
Arca - Our top player of last season
Land of Oz - No new keepers even rumored

Uh Oh, No Right Back !! And Aliadiere is once again to be the King of the League Cup ??

In other words, why would we pay a record fee to replace Arca, when we need a right midfielder and a right back ??

BTW, MFC could have sold out the season tickets by simply having Mrs. VdV agree to attend every week, even if her husband were not coming here. :-)

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Slight problem with your post HepDude. Southgate has yet to come out and say "Boateng is very much part of my plans - he will be captain next season". Take out Boat, drop in new signing, job's a good'un. And you've already said we need a new man for the right-wing... Are you saying we might have too many good players to keep them all happy? We need competition for places, in my opinion.

IF it is schweinsteiger. whos another german in spian?

Jonathan11 Posted on 19/6 11:31
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Don't think there is one.

heaton_mersey_boro Posted on 19/6 11:42
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Odonkor (sp) at Real Betis.

Only signed last summer for £5m.

Jonathan11 Posted on 19/6 11:46
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

He's poor though, and injury prone.

From 07/08 onwards there'll be Hildebrand and Metzelder in La Liga but I can't think of any Germans aside from Odonkor at the moment.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

NIMSC posted 18/6 @ 18.28 that it's not Odonkor

If there's no German right wingers in Spain, are we therfore saying it's not Schweinsteiger ??

dan87 Posted on 19/6 15:40
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

are there any dutch wingers in spain?? van der vaart would be spectacular, wouldnt it??

MarkW_21 Posted on 19/6 15:43
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Odonkor (sp) at Real Betis.

What does (sp) mean?

dan87 Posted on 19/6 15:57
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

spelling (he doesnt know if he spelt it right or not)

Hewlee Posted on 19/6 16:06
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Dan87, Riga is dutch ;)

But as stated earlier by NIMSC were not after him anymore, could it be Wilhelmsson (sp)?

HepDude Posted on 19/6 18:00
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

While it is possible that Boateng may not start, none of the players mentioned play Boateng's position, so it doesn't change the situation. This Spectacular Signing is for a position (Arca) where we don't need anyone. If you move Arca to Left Back, then it doesn't leave a starting position for either Pogatetz or Huth.
It makes even less sense when you think that Tuncay can also play central attacking midfield.
I'd rather we spent 10 million on an outstanding right back.

Jonathan11 Posted on 19/6 18:01
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Hadn't the league he was playing in finished when NIMSC originally posted?

mfc_4_ever Posted on 19/6 18:20

yes so it must be a brazilian because there arent any dutch right midfielders.

diego/lincoln ???

Don't know if he's the spectacular signing but i've just heard from inside the club we have agreed a fee for smithy.

pure luck, seen an internet advert around six/seven years a go. Was unsuccessful at first but assisted the guy who did get the job. He stepped down when the CM split occured and I stepped in at the top.

Brick_Tamland Posted on 20/6 1:52
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Hi NIMSC - no doubt you've come across a player called Thiago Motta. Heard anything about him in the last few days?

NIMSC Posted on 20/6 10:56
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Right...

time to spice this up a little.... been gagging to say since last week and nothing to lose now by revealing the facts...

1) The centre midfielder is Rafael Van Der Vaart. His agent has confirmed that he will be leaving Hamburg this summer. Boro facing tough competition from several 'bigger' clubs though.

2) The right midfielder was Mustapha Riga - although has gone cold at the moment due to the emergence of...

3) Ajax's confirmation that Wesley Sneijder is available for transfer. Both clubs are in discussions although Lamb has not met officials yet. Correspondence has been by phone and email believe it or not. Lamb will not be moving in on this transfer until TWO others are completed, hopefully by the end of the week.

4) The young midfielder we also targetted as a possible loan move but also a permanent option is Chris Eagles.

5) The Alan Smith rumours are 100% true and a fee was agreed yesterday.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I would be over the moon if we got Wesley Sneijder.

Of all the rumours that's probably the most credible since we know he's definitely leaving Ajax.

Would of thought Europe's elite would be lining up for him though.

mfc_4_ever Posted on 20/6 11:32

pogroy Posted on 20/6 11:45

i think the team i posted would break the top 6 as long as the right back was of good quality, very unlikely to be true of course, but still stranger things have happened

whos is classed as the spectacular signing nimsc? vdv or sneijder? and how much are their clubs looking for?

damit1968 Posted on 20/6 17:41
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

So the team next season is going to be

Schwarzer
Rightback Woodgate Huth/Pogatetz Taylor
Sneijder Van der Vaart Arca Downing
Smith Tuncay

Subs: Jones, Huth/Pogatetz, Cattermole, Johnson, Aliadiere

and we're selling Yakubu, Boateng and Rochemback to make way for this influx

It was a good thread while it lasted, shame NIMSC had to 'out' the players involved

smoggee Posted on 20/6 17:56
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

i want this all to be true NIMSC so not trying to pick holes in your story.But the bit about our interest in riga going cold because of sneijder becoming available doesnt make sense. surely we just stopped going after riga when he signed that new 3 year deal?

Brick_Tamland Posted on 20/6 18:37
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I doubt that we will be selling Rochemback. Boateng might possibly move on - perhaps Sunderland?

amelvg1 Posted on 20/6 22:38

will we know by friday nimsc if the deal/deals are on? as u sed in earlier posts

BoroMod Posted on 20/6 23:17
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I seriously hope this is true, it would be incredible. I'd settle for one of them though, ideally Sjneider as he's right sided.

Bukowski_MFC Posted on 21/6 4:47
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

NIMSC - Do you have any idea which right-back we're looking to buy? Are we after Jagielka?

HepDude Posted on 21/6 5:03
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

According to his own official web site, F-ing wesley sneijder is a f-ing free agent: " Contract tot: 2007 "

It makes sense to go after all the free agents early in the Transfer Window... you can always find someone to take your 10 million pound cheque on August 31st...

However, Ajax would not be involved other than in terms of paperwork...

Sneijder definitely isn't a free agent.

Brick_Tamland Posted on 21/6 16:31
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Any idea which player Boro are trying to bring in, NIMSC? I thinkuYou mentioned in your post that the Netherlands and Hamburg weren't Keith Lamb's next ports of call and that he was trying to some other business beforehand.

as much as i would love to see sneijder or van der vaart here. i just dont think they would come to us. hope im proved wrong.

HepDude Posted on 21/6 19:23
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I finally found a quote from the player saying that he expects that Ajax don't want him to leave on a free in two years, so he is not a free agent, and his own official web site is wrong. :)

I know this is all good fun, and god knows ive loved this thread.

But i do hope some fans dont take this and the names mentioned here too seriously, because in the end I fear it could lead to disappointment, which would lead to frustration with the club and disillusionment amongst fans again.

We will do well this year without most of the names on here, have faith.

The more I think about this thread the more I come to realise we haven't really a cat in hell's chance of getting most of the names mentioned. Sorry NIMSC if you're reading, I certainly enjoyed reading the posts and I'd love it if we did sign somebody of their calibre but I'm putting them out of my mind now and ignoring transfer tattle.

HepDude Posted on 22/6 1:45
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Thanks for posting the Youtube link - because I am now not interested in Sneijder. Yes, he seems an excellent player.

BUT in every highlight, HE IS ALWAYS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE PITCH.

We are the Surpreme Rulers of the Left Sided Players. Even Tuncay likes the Left Side (check his videos). Yakubu likes the left. Downing, Johnson, Arca, Pogatetz, Taylor. We don't need any more players on the LEFT.

Jonathan11 Posted on 22/6 2:03
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Fear not, Wesley is a natural central midfielder.

Not like we'll be signing him anyway.

Though this has been the best thread of the supposed "rumours" threads and all that. I salute you NIMSC.

dan87 Posted on 22/6 2:03
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

would definately be spectacular, but could we afford VDV and sneijder unless we sold yak???

Jonathan11 Posted on 22/6 2:11
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Having spoken to a Dutch mate of mine, he says that it actually has been reported in Holland that we are interested in Sneijder. Not heard anything of that in the UK though.

dan87 Posted on 22/6 2:20
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

maybe itll hit the press on friday or saturday here. as long as w sign the tvvat tho, would be great for our right hand side, not the quickest tho.

Jonathan11 Posted on 22/6 2:27
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

As I said, he's naturally a central midfielder.

HepDude Posted on 22/6 2:38
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Exactly. And NIMSC has him as our "right sided" midfielder purchase.

If we get VdV and WS, we still need two (or more) right sided players (like Geremi).

dan87 Posted on 22/6 2:42
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

if we got these 2, i cant see us adding anymore players to the midfield, competition will be fierce. especially when you consider the other players we've signed can also do a job on the right wing if need be.

--- Post edited by dan87 on 22/6 2:43 ---

HepDude Posted on 22/6 8:17
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I'm saying that it wouldn't work - VdV, WS, Tuncay, Arca, Rochemback, Boateng - all central midfield players. We had plenty of player who were not right midfielders who we said "play on the right", and none of them did so - they went into the middle.

We need at least one player like Geremi who is a right side specialist.

marskephil Posted on 22/6 8:28
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I've just seen this on Football Rumours, can't see it myself at that price and his age.

Middlesbrough Have Pulled Off Transfer Coup Of The Year. Not Jonathan Woodgate For £7M. Not Tuncay Sanli For Free. Juan Roman Riquelme. £11M

Parmotastic Posted on 22/6 17:19
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

NISMC couple of questions

"3) Ajax's confirmation that Wesley Sneijder is available for transfer. Both clubs are in discussions although Lamb has not met officials yet. Correspondence has been by phone and email believe it or not. Lamb will not be moving in on this transfer until TWO others are completed, hopefully by the end of the week."

couple of questions - were the two signings that needed completing before we went for sneijder, alaidiere and tuncay ? = if so are we after him now ?

and

"5) The Alan Smith rumours are 100% true and a fee was agreed yesterday."

was the price we agreed more or less than what the scum up the road have offered ?


you might not know but ita worth a shot

HepDude Posted on 22/6 18:02
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

The only Riquelme rumour is to Everton.

Someone seems to think that we should go from fielding 11 left midfielders to fielding 11 central attacking midfielders.

Evidently, only central attacking midfielders are "spectacular" these days, not even strikers qualify any more.

RIGHT SIDE !

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Right.... we are signing a player in the incoming week. Whether its one of the two originals im not sure. My 'channels' of communication are quiet at the moment which is a tad worrying but on the other hand, hope is not gone until we see something concrete from the players themselves or their clubs. re: both van der vaart and sneijder - nothing has been confirmed about either yet.

If he had a choice between Juventus and Middlesbrough, I know where I'd be going (well it would be boro obviously but from a dutch point of view...)

Right, im off to help a local player make a move to the continent :)

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I've read a little about Van Der Vaart and Sneijder.

VdV seems to be the sort of inconsistent player that we would like to get away from signing. Also, I don't see why Hamburg would want to sell him.

Sneijder, on the other hand, is consistent, had his best year yet, has requested a transfer, and is talking to Spurs and Villa. I think he might go for 10-12 million pounds, though. I'd have to rate his financial value as more than VdV, although VdV's market value may be higher due to usual cr*p like famous wife, better PR staff, etc.

They both would play in the same one position, I can't see why we would want to buy both, and we can't afford both, in any event.

curtis_fleming Posted on 26/6 9:16
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Gullible;
–adjective
-easily deceived or cheated.

1793 (implied in gullibility), earlier cullibility (1728), probably connected to gull, a cant term for "dupe, sucker" (1594), which is of uncertain origin. It is perhaps from the bird (see gull (n.)), or from verb gull "to swallow" (1530, from O.Fr. goule, from L. gula "throat," see gullet); in either case with a sense of "someone who will swallow anything thrown at him." Another possibility is M.E. dial. gull "newly hatched bird" (1382), which is perhaps from O.N. golr "yellow," from the hue of its down.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

a week now and not word in the press about these players.wheres nimsc gone.

kermit_the_smog Posted on 28/6 22:46
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

We will not be able to afford Smith, Van Der Vaart, Sneijder and a right back.

I highly doubt we'll sign either of those midfield players.

We may get Smith from that list, but i can't see either coming here.

NIMSC Posted on 1/7 20:57
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

well really suprised nothing done yet...

.... dont dismiss this 'rumour' just yet.

been in london the past week but will get things up to date tomorrow.

right back deal will be completed this week but interesting developments to come re: the midfielders AND Smith.

kermit... you're clearly underestimating boro's current transfer kitty. just because we haven't been splashing 'stupid' money so far, there is an extremely comfortable amount to work with and Im expecting us to be successful in bringing in FIVE more players during July, and hopefully early in july too.

bring it on.... :)

Brick_Tamland Posted on 1/7 21:33
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

This thread is worth an intermittent hoof from now until the end of August. I'd like NIMSC's top names to be linked with the club as it would restore my belief that amongst all the wind-ups and half-baked rumours there are a few people out there who DO have a source connected with the club. That very small percentage of people make silly season fun. Certainly better than uninformed debate on islam and lists of favourite songs.

Bukowski_MFC Posted on 2/7 3:01

PAC79 Posted on 2/7 5:36
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Just going back to thread number god knows what, it said we were waitng on two transfers before going for the intended targets, are they both incoming? just makes me think one of them was possibly Saviola(free) who if im correct was hoping to have his future sorted before the tournement. With that in mind wouldn't it sugest Yak would be on his way out freeing up the cash for Schwienstieger and whoever else. good business and very little spent.Guess its just another dream.....

What be the latest, NIMSC?

HepDude Posted on 3/7 0:44
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

PAC79 - "Saviola" was made up by someone who admits to making it up. There is no "Saviola" rumour that is based on anything whatsoever. Note that Smith is saying "I want European football", and Gudjohnsen turned down Newcastle. Saviola is certainly not going to a club 12th in any table.

yep, im lurking... but know absolutely zilch at the moment. been busy and not being doing any of my research work in the past two weeks so not been in contact with those in the know.

trying to get the actually N.I.M.S.C. kickstarted again for the new season. A lot easier said than done. Whiteant... fancy helping?! :P

NIMSC Posted on 9/7 10:43
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I bring you today some news....

Rafael Van Der Vaart deal is 'dead'.

Van Der Vaart was due to meet Hamburg officials this morning for 'crisis' talks, which would suprise anyone who seen football mondial this week where he seemed so happy! My understanding is that he has committed himself to Hamburg for another season and will captain the club.

Sad news really as he would have been brilliant, im just regretting naming the player now as I look like a fool.

However, willing to stick my neck out and bring 'fresh' news today re: other potentials signings, im adament, at least THREE more signings are on the way, and possible up to five.

Mr Lamb has been off on his travels again and looking forward to bringing home the bacon later on...

Bobby_Mington Posted on 9/7 10:48
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

You did right in naming him, you would only have got hammer if you didn't.
What other names can you give us?

Ste_1986 Posted on 9/7 11:57
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

van der vart was captain last season !!!

sambaDTR Posted on 9/7 13:11

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

A) How you know so much - suprising a lot, and none of what i've said so far has been proved wrong. saying that, none of it has been proved correct but i can't argue with that.

B) How we are going to make a signing with the squad in Austria - Keith Lamb, next question...

C) Are you related to Pauluka - No. However I may replace him as the resident tipster. Back at your peril.

D) Can you provide proof of how you claim to know all this - No.

E) Why you continue to wind us all up - Its winding me up at the same time, a boro fan after all and when I hear the things I hear and can't share them in full or how I hear them it does my nut in!

F) How much of a semi on do achieve by doing this - I leave my semi's for the girls on office-beauties.com - we all have our weaknesses.

finally you guys worked it out last night, didnt think the cryptic bit would take that long, especially as the same player had already been touted on here that day!

redtiger, dont worry - outlined why i hear things a lot earlier in the thread - dont hide the fact that im also a (just graduated) student from lisburn!

NIMSC HAS BEEN RUMBLED FOLKS!!! His name is Mark **** (Ill not say his name for obvious reasons) who is 22(ish) from lisburn as he said, like most of my best mates are. In fact a very good friend of mine who is also a FM scout from lisburn concured that he would not no any more than the average punter. Just a cheeky irish student wind up im afraid.

mr madrenswillie...

your sounding like im being secretive about my identity - read the blooming thread - i dont mind saying who i am!!

Mark Hill, 22 from Lisburn... myspace... http://www.myspace.com/boromark (although dont really use it!) bebo.... http://niboro.bebo.com

Hmmm... other FM 'scout' from lisburn.... baring in mind im in charge of who i bring in locally to help with the research the only one who could come under that description would be chris parker... whos from moira... and chris only helps out with glenavon fc research. Chris would not be involved in travelling to London to meet with the other head researchers from round the world, many of who work for FIFA, UEFA or individual clubs in europe.

Slur if you want, but you're not highlighting anything new to the posters on here and im certainly not 'afraid' to say who i am!

Random though that you should ask have i ever been to Africa?! mmm no? Australia yes, but not anywhere in africa?

Whose next?!

As for the africa Q. that was because i thought you where my friend who has done work for FM and has been to africa, not sure if he is from lisburn but he is from around that area. Not chris though. Read my posts correctly please i had the decency to read your rubbish thoroughly.

ah my dear boy, you're completely overlooking the fact of the role i play in sports interactive, who i have met, who i have regular contact with and the role im playing working with other clubs outside the UK.

are you and you're friends with and in contact with me 24/7?! what i know and find out has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the NI Middlesbrough Supporters Club, despite my name - yes in that capacity, i'd know nothing more than the next boro fan. it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to with my individual role as the Northern Ireland Head Researcher for FM, in that capacity my research and contacts are confined to just northern irish clubs, and they're not going to be passing on boro info! that role though has allowed me to meet and become friends with a number of people across europe though hence why i find out things and I am in regular contact with these people who DO know and find out things on the continent before much of the media does.

As I said, slur away, but back up what your saying other than 'i know you and so do my friends' - how much do you really know me?! not much obviously

Have you heard anything about Wesley Sneijder??
He really would be spectactular, 18 goals from midfield last season..

Wilhelmson
Boswinga (right back)
and Wes would be perfect for us and we really would have a great squad ready for next season...

GibbosEmpire Posted on 10/7 23:46

Sneijder is off to Fiorentina.

HepDude Posted on 11/7 0:03
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

quote:"NIMSC, are you sure Wilhelmsson is coming to us? All accounts reckon hes off to Man City"

Not true.

His agent specifically said that "reports that there have been bids from Spurs or Man City are untrue". When asked about Boro, his agent said that he could not comment on that.

Sounds like Boro are in negotiations with him or his club.

He is exactly what we are missing, too, would be a great signing. A very pacey right winger.

I remember the day when rumours consisted of "Player seen at Teesside Airport / clubshop / A19 / Hurworth / Tontine" etc, and that was that.

Shot down in a fraction of this one.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

So NIMSC, Wilhelmsson will be a Boro player by 27/07?

I'm guessing, if he isn't, rather than admitting your a complete wind up merchant, the deal hit a snag, watch this space... etc etc!!

trodbitch Posted on 21/7 21:11
re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Let's be honest, I believe these rumours as much as I believe NIMSC when he tells us about how he is brokering moves for players and is the Northern Ireland representative for the Football Manager game. I real life Walter Mitty character.

NIMSC obviously has a real contact on the inside because he got it spot on, except that instead of Wilhelmson its Young and instead of the deal being done some weeks ago it looks like it might be done in the next couple of weeks. Keep up the good work NIMSC. Is Sneijder really Gera?

So, 450 posts later and im a bit of bored of it all now. good fun for a while but dragged out far too long.

Any transfer touting I did on here was all poo. Complete crap that came from my imagination.

Now that I've got that off my chest... in response to trod... anything else i said that wasn't middlesbrough transfer related is 100% true i.e. I have been involved in two players potential moves this summer at other clubs, I am in regular contact with scouts across europe and representives at fifa and uefa, and I am the football manager guy that I claim to be. As for boro though, unfortunately I know as much as the next boro fan... now, all those people who want to say 'told you so' may do so now... maybe we'll exceed 500.... no hard feeling eh? just a bit of friendly banter :)

Why do i feel so dissapointed when i knew it was made up all along?

NIMSC do like pulling the wings of flies and burning spiders with a magnifying glass as well.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

right... don't take it to heart guys... its a light-hearted internet forum, not the bloody bible!

and mark... wise up! banned for what, starting a rumour?! if you were to take that action with every rumour-munger on here, we'd have about 5 posters left - not my fault if this particular rumour took off!

Latest news, sorry it took so long, I've been abit busy tieing up the loose ends of Ronaldinho's move to the Boro, I can confirm that NIMSC WILL be hated by everyone on this forum for being a complete t!t.

What a sad indidvidual. I am no more inclined to believe his football connections fantasy than I was the transfer stories.It just shows how desperarate Boro fans are for success that he was given so much attention.

There are official sources - mfc.co.uk

There are semi-official sources - Gazette, Sky Sports

All other sources have no credibility - how can some FMTTM post claim to actually know anything ? By their anonymity, they are automatically NO ONE.

So all FMTTM talk cannot have any credibility.

Enjoy.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

NIMSC is a sad fooker, but ANYONE who believes this shitt enough to drag it out to over 400 posts is just as stupid as he is. Dont believe anything till you see the press conference

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

NIMSC is lying. He got found out for posting our targets on the messageboard. Southgate was worried it would signal our interests to other clubs and up the price of our targets. When Sneijder was talked out of coming to Boro NIMSC was told to shut this thread down before it did more damage.

Any credibility was lost when he said he rated Wayne Routledge.

I think I prefer "you are a grade A qunt" if that's ok.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

I've no problem with what NIMSC has done. he's broken no laws, nor hurt anyone.

If people want to beleive what is put on a forum then more fool them.

It's nice to dream and a few people have done that on here.

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

It's not NIMSC's fibs that get my goat...


It's Steve Gibson's lies to the fans about us signing 'spectacular' players that really gets to me!

re: The other 'spectacular signing'....

Why do certain people on this board feel the need to spout utter sh~t to their fellow Boro fans hoping they've tricked them into believing their boll~cks?

I just don't understand that "aren't I a smartarse" mentality at all.
