11 Jan 2017 10:28:32
Why would we recall him from a loan at a championship club to send him to Hartlepool he's far to good for that level he's development would be better helped being at a championship club

Just read that Gustede is in Middlesbrough to complete a medical at Aston Villa, hope that's not true.

Signed sealed and delivered.

03 Jan 2017 10:11:19

07 Jan 2017 18:25:41
Linked with bojan and Bamford as well now

23 Dec 2016 17:15:04
Rangers want Grant Leadbitter to replace Joey Barton.
Leadbitter is the model professional and would be a perfect fit . £2 million bid will be enough for the Boro club captain.
Expected competition from Forest, Leeds and Sheff Wed.

19 Aug 2016 17:03:08
Newcastle to use the Sissoko money (£30 million ), to raid neighbours Middlesbrough for:
Ayala £16 million
Leadbitter £4 million
Rhodes £10 million

They see these as the new spine of the team to get them up.
Heard it from a man in the know.
May also ask for Nugent £4 million.
Boro will let it happen I was told if it happens soon, so they can get replacements in.
Any reason it hasn't gone on the board?

26 Aug 2016 13:20:12
Why would Boro sell Rhodes less than 6 months after he came for less than we payed and why would they let Ayala go who will probably be the next captin plus he's just signed an extension until 2020.

27 Aug 2016 18:36:44
Don't believe it.

21 Jul 2016 11:35:55
Martin caceres to boro free agent at moment heard ot from a good source?

06 Jul 2016 21:10:58
The Boro rumoured after Robin Van Persie and Victor Valdez (keeper)

07 Jul 2016 09:01:52
i can see valdes but van persie not so sure!

08 Jul 2016 10:08:14
Subotic and negredo the club have said no interest in rvp.

10 Jul 2016 00:16:09
I'd take RVP over Negredo.

Although if you're done with Nugent, Leeds will take him haha.

10 Jul 2016 21:22:41
Well tbh either would do, I believe that if we got one of them strikers season tickets will go through the roof, that's what the fans are craving.

21 Jul 2016 11:39:01
Boro now interested in martin caceres free agent after breakdown of subotic deal who was released by juve but wages may be a stumbling block.

16 Jun 2016 21:09:29
Anybody heard the rumour of Balotelli going to Boro on loan?

16 Jun 2016 22:29:48
Most media figures are reporting he's off to Besiktas so I doubt it.

17 Jun 2016 09:59:15
Anyone heard the rumour pigs can play darts who makes this s*** up make it believable.

{Ed001's Note - have you never seen Animal Farm? ;-)

17 Jun 2016 12:17:06
I did read the book by George Orwell. Oh. that Animal Farm!

Speaking of animals, Lee Cattermole returning to Boro - 5m.

19 Jun 2016 14:07:36
No chance of Lee Cattermole think he's still barred out of Yarm anyway, we have 3 midfielders who are just as good as him anyway keep the 5 mill he's not worth the trouble anymore.

06 Jun 2016 15:13:37
Barnsley striker Bradley Ash has been linked to a shock move to newly promoted premier league side Middlesbrough. he was spotted earlier at the river side ground apparently for talks over his contract details. the fee is rumoured to be around 500,000 pound and ten pence. Bradley ash is a prolific goal scorer with his 32 goals for Weston super mare.

06 Jun 2016 15:48:25
This just isn't funny no chance him joining a club higher than us he isn't good enough.

07 Jun 2016 10:13:08
Top bantz but nah definitely isn't coming like because he wouldn't go to the riverside he would go to rockcliffe hall.

18 Jun 2016 14:12:42
Apperently George friend could be on his way and baba coming in? Also rashford on loan a very good possibility.

19 Jun 2016 14:09:50
Absolutely no way George will leave, He's the best left back in the league, loves the club, loves the fans and the fans love him, His ambition is to play in the Premier league and now he is.

20 Jun 2016 00:48:16
Well we shall see, I hope not but who knows if a bigger club comes knocking?

20 Jun 2016 15:40:25
Why would friend leave now after all the interest in him last few years and he's stayed with us don't see why he would leave now.

20 Jun 2016 20:11:13
Just something I got told thought I would pass on.

29 May 2016 13:41:31
Middlesbrough are ready to sign 3 players on a free transfer after initial talks with all three players were promising, they include midfielder Clement Chantome, defender Bernardo Espinosa and attacking midfielder Gaston Ramirez.

The club will also hope their rigorous scouting of France pays off as they look to wrap up deals off Aissa Mandi and Clement Grenier.

01 Jun 2016 22:44:57
Would only have rb rest are free for a reason and also french players are nothing but a sick note and a proven one at that.

08 Jun 2016 06:35:46
Updating of MFC potential targets:
Westwood (updated)
Arbeloa (fair chance)
Mandi (advanced talks)
Bernardo (choice between middlesbrough fc and sporting gijon)
Bedimo (fair chance)
Praet (accepted an offer from Sevilla however still has a decision to make)
Pritchard (fair chance)
Fischer (officially signed as a MFC player now)
Llorente (Good chance)
(Are any of these new players we've enquired about at boro's standard of calibre and would they do well at Boro? ) Comment below (or above)

27 May 2016 00:57:15
Middlesbrough want anderlechts Dennis praet. Boro also interested in Lucas Perez but face competition from Leicester.

28 May 2016 09:17:48
Updates on Targets:
Ramirez (free agent)
Praet (90% close to signing for Sevilla)
Fischer (officially signed as a MFC player now)
The latest one to be linked is Clement Grenier
(watch this space for updates on any more enquired players)

29 May 2016 14:48:11
No chance with any of them would be nice like.

30 May 2016 12:20:39
Why is there no chance with any of them, utfb? What a ridiculous comment to make.
All the above names he's mentioned have been linked with the club.

01 Jun 2016 08:12:04
Updating of MFC potential targets:
Westwood (updated)
Arbeloa (fair chance)
Mandi (advanced talks)
Kalas (unlikely)
Bernardo (updated)
Skrtel (fair chance)
Bedimo (slim chance)
Ramirez (Heading to Uruguay)
Praet (accepted an offer from Sevilla)
Pritchard (fair chance)
Fischer (officially signed as a MFC player now)
Perez (off to Leicester)
Llorente (Good chance)

(Are any of these new players we've enquired about at boro's standard of calibre and would they do well at Boro? ) Comment below (or above)

01 Jun 2016 15:52:45
If Skrtel was happy to fill in behind Gibson and Ayala then i'd pay £6 million for him. He has experience at this level and iv always thought he was a good player. I think Pritchard would be a good signing as he can play in all att mid positions. don't think either of them would be starters though. Llorente too would be a good signing, 6ft 5inch striker to bring on when we need to go for it wouldn't be a bad option. Again he is an experienced player.

02 Jun 2016 13:05:10
Prichard would do well but Westwood would be a decent number 2.

07 Jun 2016 08:12:03
Fischer has not officially signed until International transfer window opens nothing hs been signed.

25 May 2016 09:02:27
Ipswich Town are set to start there summer business by completing 2 deals before the end of this week.

Adam Webster from Portsmouth is set to sign for £500k + Matt Clarke (who has just spent the season on loan at Portsmouth) .

This will followed by the capture of Adam Reach from Middlesbrough (formerly on loan at Preston) . Town look set to pay £250k +additional causes to get Reach to Portman Road, with a deal all set to be completed.

Will be back with more info as and when I have it.

25 May 2016 09:39:28
It be more than 250k for reach and Preston are front runners for reach.

25 May 2016 10:05:01
As I say, it is £250k +additional clauses, which I believe could total up to £600k. Preston did look the front runners, but Ipswich are all but set to confirm his signing this week, held positive talks over the weekend, which in turn has meant Reach will now sign for Ipswich rather than Preston.

26 May 2016 13:53:57
I'd say reach is worth 1-2 million in today's market can be really good on his day and he's still learning all the time would have him back at Boro as a fringe player.

30 May 2016 16:18:36
Reach is a good player, very energetic, gets up and down the touchline as good as anyone. He just needs to improve his finishing and then he'll be worth that kind of money. Hope he chooses PNE.

24 May 2016 20:14:51
Middlesbrough is interested in signing Swiss playmaker Luca Zuffi from Basel after EURO 16. The midfielder would cost around £5M.

25 May 2016 06:52:46
Where's your source because I haven't heard a thing about this.

25 May 2016 17:15:41
Don't remember, maybe Skysports or similar, but it is nothing more than a gossip. He is most likely to move to a Bundesliga club though.

26 May 2016 01:06:00
Yeah from Champions League to Middlesborough, seems abit of a stretch to be fair.

The fee sounds about right though.

28 May 2016 12:31:39
Hes getting links from sports mole load of rubbish same as the preat lad was never going to happen utb.

29 May 2016 14:37:59
Believe one Fab Ravanelli did exactly the same.

23 May 2016 11:34:05
Middlesbrough linked with Asmir Begovic from chelsea.

24 May 2016 10:55:54
Are you mad no chance.

24 May 2016 11:41:06
Vicktor fisher to the boro what a player agent doing a grate job with the links need them on the dotted.

26 May 2016 01:12:24
Middlesbrough fans go mental with their rumours around Transfer window time lol.

Although Viktor Fischer would be a decent signing, I can't see Begovic leaving if Curtouis is also going, that'd leave them with that 3rd choice Italian goalie lol.

Plus I think Begovic would most likely goto a top European club before sliding back down the English table. No offense, just facts.

27 May 2016 00:43:25
Boro are going no where we are back where we belong and we can attract big players because we're a big club and a great club all round.

27 May 2016 20:48:00
Ramirez (free agent)
Praet (accepted an offer from Sevilla)
Fischer (officially signed as a MFC player now)
(watch this space for updates on any more enquired players)

29 May 2016 14:51:03
Teeside1 are you a boro scout?

03 Jun 2016 07:33:21

20 May 2016 23:07:57
Released Rovers defender Matt Kilgallon, to return to the North East by completing a move to Hartlepool United, Matt has previously had spells with Sunderland and Middlesbrough.

Matt has had interest from a number of league one and two clubs, but would favour a move back to the North East.

26 May 2016 01:16:58
Seems plausible.

17 May 2016 08:15:57
Middlesbrough looking to bring in Kevin Mirrallas and Jefferson Montero. Along with Gaston Ramirez, they are seen as key forward players to help in boro's premiership campaign.
A new keeper is on the way, with Feyenoords Kenneth Vemeer a likely target.

17 May 2016 13:22:25
Yes seen the Vermeer rumour all over also gaston will come he loves us and we love him not sure about mirrals but montero was a target we missed in Jan so possible but I've also heard milik Walters amongst other names flamini Morrison so we will just see what happens.

17 May 2016 15:07:45
They will never join a club as weak as you. And Ramirez carried you to promotion, without him you are nothing.

17 May 2016 15:53:44
🙈🙈🙈 really from a burnley fan who were carried all season by an over priced centre forward. Even the manager wants out. From the clubs I've spoke to so far, they are banking on burnley for 6 pts.

17 May 2016 16:12:13
BurnleyBFC What are you saying? You are just a as weak as Middlesbrough. At least Boro have done well when they've been in the Premier League.

17 May 2016 17:40:06
Your both still going to get relegated.

18 May 2016 05:23:58
Boro were last in the prem a long time ago mate. We weren't carried at all if you look at our stats, plus is a player we bough for £6m scoring 25 goals getting us £150m over priced? Exactly. We had one if the best defences in the championship and Dyche said he will spend so I am sure we will stay up. We probably had the best defence anyway after we made a change to it half way through the season taking Duff out the team.

18 May 2016 10:23:20
Last time you were up all you got were championship standard players like juke from Boro then you got relighted you will do the same again your club has no ambition in the transfer market.

19 May 2016 22:17:34
You paid £9m, get your facts right. At least boro will try and compete. Burnley will bring absolutely nothing to the prem.

21 May 2016 08:30:56
BurnleyBFC we were in top 3 practically all season we signed ramirez in January without gray you wouldn't of even made the play offs and it was £9.75 million so get your facts right your a bang average side who play boring football ule be back in the championship next year guarantee.

22 May 2016 12:03:18
Boro played Burnley off the pitch twice last season. Burnley played scruffy football for most of the season and will get destroyed in the prem if they play the same way. Also none of the burnley players would get in the boro team n that includes gray since whenever he plays against a prem quality defender like Ayala he doesn't get a touch all game.

23 May 2016 03:15:59
No big player would ever join burnley. You will always be tinpot. We have had world cup winner champs league winners at boro because we are a good club with pedigree something you will never have. Can't wait to see the signing's and when we play you and hammer you. Even Barton doesn't want to stay bail you for rangers because your that tinpot.

23 May 2016 03:23:21
I'd rather see us sign a keeper with prem experience. Big risk signing a foreign keeper first season up for me.

25 May 2016 11:23:39
BurnleyBFC, you may well have had one of the best defences in the league, however, we had the best in the country. Gaston couldn't have carried us because we were top at christmas, He signed on Loan in January, you are just bitter because you have to go to possibly the worst ground in the country to watch your center backs hoof the ball to a big lummox and a quick lad, Andre Gray is talented, don't get me wrong, but he is a poor mans Callum Wilson. I hope Burnley stay up next season, its just a guaranteed 6 points for the season after when we're playing the geordies again, if they're lucky enough to get back to the Premier League.

27 May 2016 06:09:01
Updates from sources about potential transfers:
Goalkeepers MFC are looking at and have enquired about are as follows in Tim Krul, Michel Vorm and Kenneth Vermeer (or even Jasper Cillesen as he is a close friend of Viktor Fischer) .
The defenders that MFC have enquired about are Alvaro Arbeloa, Tomas Kalas, Victor Lindelof (rumoured to have rejected the high bid from Man Utd due to no guarantee of first team football), Aissa Mandi.
The midfield enquiries are Gaston Ramirez, James Morrison, Mathieu Flamini, Rachid Ghezzal, Jefferson Montero, Dennis Praet, and Viktor Fischer (who is officially a MFC player for a fee of around £4million) .
Enquired Strikers are Lucas Perez and Milik, but there has been words spreading that there could potentially be a signing worth around £25-£30million and is world class (the name hasn't be released yet unfortunately) .
I will update you lot when it is necessary! UTB!
