Burnley Middlesbrough and Brighton have all agreed terms with Tottenham winger Alex Pritchard for a 6 month loan deal. Unless he changes his mind at the last minute he's on his way to turf moor.

So with confidence likely to be at its lowest for 2 years, and the discontent of nugent and Co at the breakdown of the Rhodes deal, do people fear Sheffield Wednesday in the playoffs? For certain we will be in this. competition again this year and I feel Wednesday are stronger than boro now, any thoughts?

Think we will go up automatically this year. Still think we have enough to get over the line. We have just got to hope that Karanka and co have an alternative up their sleeve. Do have concerns about the volume of players who can play in the front 3 positions. Downing/ Ramirez/ Adomah/ Kike Sola/ De Pena/ Forshaw/ Stuani. Not a lot up top apart from Kike and Nugent. Not the best in my opinion. Either clear one or two out and get a big loan in or move Stuani up top instead of Nugent or Kike and see what happens. More than enough in 3 behind as mentioned previously.

Yeah but they've tried to get Jordan Rhodes to get the goals and not bad service to have behind him.
I wish Leeds had that many options up top, I wouldn't be moaning haha.

Warwick why so negative, we got this far with out either Rhodes or McCormack were 2 nd
in the league and a game in hand on the leaders which if won were BACK to top of the league, our defence is the best in the league we have a very good midfield often described by the men who know to be the best in the league so we're not doing to badly are we, IF we carry on in the same vain we will be promoted I have no doubts about it, yes it would have been great to get either one of them but we didn't so we move on, personally I would have Stuani as our number 9 he's a better finisher than Nugent, who in my opinion runs a lot with little end product I do like him but we pay him to score goals and he's not suited to one up front whereas I think Stuani is a better fit, There's a trick up the sleeve yet I think but if not then what we have is what we've got so get behind them and hope the little hiccup were having has been ironed out on the training pitch in this break and we come back stronger and focused.

Come on pal. We are having a miniature wobble.
The Rhodes deal isn't 100% dead. Boro pulled out because his agent moved the goalposts on bonuses and his fee.
Also another target became available also so We are pursuing that also.
If Rhodes reduces his demands he will sign, if he doesn't expect to see another top striker sign tomorrow.
On Wednesday, decent side but no depth. Yet. They will be stronger next season and will probably go up then. Injuries to Hooper or Forestieri could cripple them.
Have faith, Utb.

Bit of a relief Rhodes deal breaking down, it didn't make financial sense at all, boro now looking at on loan option of Cameron Jerome following Bamford going to Norwich with Glenn Murray another option if he doesn't go to Brighton.

I still think Middlesbrough have enough quality to go up. Update on Pritchard he's now going to west brom.

You have to all forgive my over negativity, not the club's fault, we've really tried, great chairman, and good players who play with passion. I just don't think as we stand that we have enough going forward. I think our strikers are average, our midfield trio behind the forwards are talented but lack pace, apart from adomah who is very inconsistent, and ramirez has barely played for 2 years. Listen I hope your all right, the fallout from this falling through could be very damaging. We have done wonderfully and of course if we repeat our 1st half of season for we will go up, but we are relying too much on inner steel rather than talent.

If you look at what I said in the summer he his now top scorer and I was laughed at for suggesting grey we have no chance with Hernandez and we have had a pop at the rest and failed why don't we get naki wells pay 4-6 million plus kike on loan for the rest of the season he's scored the same as Rhodes and will be a fraction of the price.

Am I on the wrong page? I thought this was BHA rumours.
