re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Ya can't just say that.. we need names or links..

Good centre half, Geremi and a striker would be good.. first two priority..

20_Briggsy Posted on 30/1 13:18
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Well the 2 dont need any introductions.

Big_Shot Posted on 30/1 13:18
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Balde and Celades or Geremi then. Be interesting to see if Balde is playing for Celtic today.

Buddy Posted on 30/1 13:26
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I've just spoken to someone to try and confirm Briggsy's story. All I could find out the two definites are for what we would all agree are the problem positions, one from a Scottish club and the other has a Premiership winners' medal. These are presumably the ones Briggsy refers to as needing no introduction.

The possible third is apparently frustrated at a lack of first team opportunities, having only been used once as a sub this season as far as my contact knows. The extra bit of info is that he plays in a position that has been the subject of much debate recently.

20_Briggsy Posted on 30/1 13:27
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I cant deny that buddy.

micky_k86 Posted on 30/1 13:29
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Keeper or centre forward????

And Geremi hasn't won a Prem medal.

ScarboroSmoggy Posted on 30/1 13:29
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Balde, Geremi and.......................? Name the 3rd one then.

Boro85 Posted on 30/1 13:30
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

"has a Premiership winners' medal"

Hmmm that means it isnt Geremi then doesnt it?

re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Said he HAS a premiership winners medal mind. So providing we sign him tommorrow he wont have one. He might be getting one but he wont own one yet.

Big_Shot Posted on 30/1 13:34
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Has a winners medal will probably mean someone like Djemba Djemba, although I'd prefer Fortune.

Watch it'll be Tim Sherwood or David Batty.

20_Briggsy Posted on 30/1 13:35

Djemba Djemba hasnt one either!!

Has Geremi played 10 games or more in the league this year? Isnt that the amount they have to play to get a winners medal?

Big_Shot Posted on 30/1 13:42
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Balde is playing for Celtic today.

Boro85 Posted on 30/1 13:45

Doesnt sound particularly promising if he's being allowed to play for Celtic today then.

Big_Shot Posted on 30/1 13:46

Yeah I wouldn't of thought he'd be playing today if he was joining us tomorrow.

re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Talking of Kevin Poole did you see the howler by the Colchester keeper on MOTD last night.

With Pally on there I thought hed mention the game at Leeds in 89 when Parky passed back to Poole. He went down on one knee to pick the ball up, the ball hit a divot, went over his shoulder and in. We lost 2-1

Laughed? No

I've given you 2.

Like I said the third is only a possible, but certainly very likely. Lets just say he plays for a north east team.

re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Got to be bellamy then??

also - on radio five 20 mins ago they were reporting Balde as very likely - Martin O'Neil said Balde had been very impressed by the Boro set up (and the £30k to £40k on offer i bet) - they reporting todays game as a very emotional one for Balde as it is likely to be his last for Celtic.

Freedom_Bear Posted on 30/1 14:30
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

The bear knows Celades is very close to signing, Balde will sign, and believes the 3rd to be Bernard.

The bear does not believe Geremi will be here, which makes the bear sad.

Nisko Posted on 30/1 14:30
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

The Bear's a Boro fan??

Also, was the "finally" to Butt or Bernard?

re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

isnt he out injured for ages?

and how much would we be expected to pay for him,

and also where would he play, id rather have boateng in my midfield. would he take parlours place? zendens place? downings place with zenden on the left?

bad buy if we get him far too injury prone.

Totality Posted on 30/1 14:32

But he is deffo the third.

borodrew Posted on 30/1 14:38
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

on mfc's site mcclaren said weve made geremi an offer and its up to the player, and theres still a chance with balde so that looks like the lot if they both come/.

ThornabyBoro Posted on 30/1 14:40
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

bellamy would be a good signing on 2 fronts - firstly he is without doubt a VERY good player and secondly the jawdees would be gutted - most would prefer to keep him and lose souness.

balde, geremi and bellamy would be worth getting out of bed for on a monday morning tomorrow in my opinion.

here's hoping.

20_Briggsy Posted on 30/1 14:41

2 certanties and 1 possible borodrew.

borodrew Posted on 30/1 14:44
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

i wouldnt want bellamy, simply because for 6 million you can get yakubu, who scores more goals, and is all round better i think.

Totality Posted on 30/1 14:46

Revol_Tees Posted on 30/1 14:54
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I hope this isn't just a big wind-up.

I'm strangely excited at the prospect of signing Bellamy, even though I hate him. He is a good player and Newcastle fans would be bitter.

But with Hasselbaink and Viduka in our squad, how could we guarantee Bellamy a first team place? And how could we guarantee him a first team place playing in his "favourite" position? And if we couldn't, what would stop him refusing to play for Boro and causing the same havoc he has at Newcastle?

Boro85 Posted on 30/1 14:56

20_Briggsy Posted on 30/1 14:57

re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I wil toss another so called "rumour" in the pot.
Boro wont sign Bellamy. He is off to Blackburn in a part ex deal for Brett Emerton.
Boro are more likely to sign Bellion.

20_Briggsy Posted on 30/1 18:45
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

This from a NUFC unofficial fans site.

'We hear from our sources in the Midlands that Craig Bellamy has rejected the move to Birmingham City. More on this when we get it.'

Middlesbrough Posted on 30/1 18:48
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Craig Bellamy.

Middlesbrough, Everton, Birmingham and Blackburn in for him.

br14 Posted on 30/1 18:55
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Not sure how any of these moves is "firm" when most likely the players themselves havent decided yet.

All of the aforementioned targets will have multiple offers on the table and will be choosing the best deal for themselves. Why decide until you have to? Hence all the last minute moves each season.

Makaveli_Tha_Don Posted on 30/1 19:06
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

we need big sighnings not 29 year old players from scotish leagues, we need big names who play well week in week out, skillful players with the concistancy of boeteng.the players that run out this saturday did nothing, boeteng must have watched the game in shame, the lack off effort from his team mates was shocking.he give 110% every time why cant the rest.

If we get any of them players, they won't be able to help us i Europe having already played there for their current clubs. Unless they help by allowing us to rest players for League matches, which'll be a bonus.

BOBEND Posted on 30/1 23:46
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I've heard Balde will sign in the morning, Boro have agreed a fee with Chelsea for Geremi but he is holding out for more money but the club won't increase there offer and it looks 50/50 at the moment, SMac is totaly p!$$ed off with Geremi after the club spent 8 weeks trying to get him due to encouragement from his agent and now he might not want to come and we don't have an alternative. Sorry the Bellamy link is non starter according to my source!! Could be wrong though.

BoroMod Posted on 30/1 23:58
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I'd like Geremi back, but not at any price. We can't be held to ransom by someone we wouldn't even be going after if we weren't desperate. Haven't seen much of Balde against decent teams but i'm sure he's better than Coops. The great servent that Coops is and was, he is starting to really show his age now.

Don't want Bellamy, would still love to see a top striker come in though.

we_have_overcome Posted on 31/1 0:01
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

We definately need another striker as Viduka's back is knacked.

Had it from a good source that they are putting in insurance claim together to get some money back on him.

It will soon be Christmas as well. Oh the joys of being a Boro fan

re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Briggsy is 100% correct.

Balde has passed a medical, Geremi is having one today.

However, personal terms are not yet agreed.

Oh and I am very, very sorry to say that Bellamy may well be joing us. Gutted.

Pauluka Posted on 31/1 8:59
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Scoea - And who is your informant? Or is this another rumour similar to the Viduka one you just through out?

scoea Posted on 31/1 9:02
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I haven't thrown any Viduka rumour out have I?

Pauluka Posted on 31/1 9:03
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

The injury one you have

scoea Posted on 31/1 9:05
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I've said that it isn't true if that's what you mean.

Pauluka Posted on 31/1 9:07
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Yes that's what I mean. You say this is not true. But you also say certain players are signing for us.

All part of the rumour wheel I suppose. At the end of the day EVERYONE is just speculating

scoea Posted on 31/1 9:08
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

I'm not.

Pauluka Posted on 31/1 9:09
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

So who is your informant on the Bellamy one?

Or are you going to be like everyone else and say "I can't reveal them as they may get in trouble"

Bellamy ?

No!

Whilst some of our players can be poor, I like the fact we don't have any d!ckh£ad$ at MFC!

He is trash.

Fast, competitive trash. But trash! With dodgy knees, dodgy temperament, and fewer goals than people might think.

Billingham_boro Posted on 31/1 19:43
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

No, but you did hint at the 3 players being;

Geremi
Balde
Bellemy

1 is staying at chelsea
1 is saying at celtic till the summer at least
1 is joining celtic on loan

So looks like your 'source' got it wrong didn't they Mr.Bigshot.

20_Briggsy Posted on 31/1 19:45
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Hoof again, just for all the people that haven't seen briggsy's stupidty.

Bellemy has now gone to celtic.

bungydinsdale Posted on 31/1 23:00
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

He'd better be cacking himself...I bet my half a million dollar home on us getting at least two new players this window after his recommendation at 1.33 yesterday...my kids are starting to panic that he was just bullsh888ing as they will be out on the streets in less than an hour...
we'll be turning up on your doorstep Briggsy soon...
can you not see how irresponsible it is to post stuff when you know it is not true, Mr Briggs???
As a result of your having a laff with your fellow boarders I am now faced witht he very real prospect of Mr Ladbrook taking possession of my lovely, four bedroom home, with outstanding sea views, privacy and space...and my kids losing the only place they have known as home...bastid...
have you no thought or care for the well being of others man???

20_Briggsy Posted on 1/2 6:28
re: 2 or maybe 3 players to sign

Sorry lads, hands up. I was wrong. The information I was given was on good faith. I was just passing on that information, no crime there. I'm not the first to make a mistake and certainly not the last.

The club were very hopefuly of signing 2 players I'm led to Believe. Balde we will sign in the summer, and as for Geremi, we had offered him a deal and he didnt take it up. If you ask me he's very silly for not taking it. He'll be very lucky to play more than 5 games for the rest of the season. This is the transfer I'm most dissapointed about.

We've still got the squad to meet our expectations for the season. We're still top 6 and in the last 32 of europe. The club will be just as frustrated as the fans are about not bringing anyone in. I'm convinced we tried everything we could to bring someone in, but theres only so much you can do, we wont be held at ranson.


Once again, sorry lads.
