    Surely this is why we bought Cummings anyway, can't see us bringing in another striker unless Velios goes..

    Teams are never build up top to bottom.
    It's the other way around.

    A good team starts from its defense.
    You conceded 72 goals last season?
    Seriously? If you lose 15 goals of Britt you can gain them just by a better defense

    Defense is something not attractive but what you can count on it if you have it
    Solid dm and cm are what you need to improve both defense and offense.
    Not a striker

    Come on, honestly, would anyone one of you turn-down a sideways move to another job at the same level as your current one, to a company with more prospects, for (potentially, at least) double your salary?

    and after just coming back from long term sick not knowing 100% that you could be struck down again.

    I would find that really hard to turn down, however i would say no, if it meant relocating to Boro, Hull, or Burnley!

    That'd make me more likely to move, knowing that I may not have the opportunity again if a serious injury hit, & that earning as much as poss in as short a space as poss + signing on fee should be snapped up.

    How do you know a combination of Cummings, Vellios, Clough and Brereton (none of whom have had a settled chance to prove themselves yet) wont contribute just as many goals in Britt's place? Supplied by a stronger midfield procured using the funds the club receives should Britt go?

    For me the key measure of how successful/messed up this deal is for the club is how we use the talent we now have to play with in the forward positions, and how shrewdly we reinvest some of the proceeds to improve the squad as a whole - plus we find ourselves in a position of having time to reinvest and not rushed into panic buys on deadline day.

    As for Britt I'll be sad to see him go and it's a shame we've never really seen him at his very best for an extended run, but good luck to him. If he can stay fit Boro will surely be favourites for a top 2 spot.

    Always liked Britt, will be a huge loss when he goes, wish him all the best, comes across as a decent guy, i like him.

    What i don't like is the agreed fee, yes £15m (if correct) is loads of money, however is this value true in today's climate?

    Jacob Murphy is just about to go from Norwich to Newcastle for £12m, he is a winger, a couple of years younger, not played as many league games as Britt. By default Strikers command the biggest fee's.
    Should the gulf in price be larger? or is this simply down to how much a club is willing to pay at the time?

    I think you have to have some perspective, chuck ffp in there, the way fawaz has run the club into the ground for years, that that marinakos has only been here for a few months pretty much seals the deal

    Club confirm he had a release clause which Boro met.

    May I be the first to congratulate him on his dream move to a second division football club.

    He probably hadn't paid for the thing anyway.

    Football agents are parasitic scum, a cancer on the game.

    They should be regarded beneath dog shit, because that's what they are.

    And, should I ever chance to be in the same room as Mr Jarman, I will take great pleasure in telling him this to his face.

    Despite the release clause, it's a fantastic piece of business.

    15m for an often injured striker is great value for us. Especially this early in the window.

    Spread that money over 3 or 4 players plus their wages. CB, CM, a winger and a striker. Let Brereton loose next year, too, he's a potential 20 goals..

    As sad as I am to see him go, at least now its over the club can hopefully concentrate on re-investing some of that money into some much needed signings in key positions.

    Agreed, shambles. Although Hassan was probably just out of shot holding a packet of baby wipes

    Why would he want to go to Boro, over Forest if not for money. Footballing terms I can't see this as a step up for him. Just my opinion.

    Good player when not injured, but if he does not want to play for us then I wish him luck and hope we get to welcome a player that actually truly wants to play for our club.

    Personally I think he will get a rough ride on his return if he,s not injured
