Apparently on the Boro Commercial twitter account at 5.30pm.

Bob - this is what twitter is for!

If you say so Barry, but I still think Twitter/Facebook, WhatsApp, and all the rest are very dangerous playgrounds, where everyone knows everyone's business within seconds of it being twitted, or whatever. No such thing as privacy, or discretion, any more.
Social media has a lot to answer for in this crazy world.
If Trump is an advocate, and user, of it!! that says it all!!!

There must be some irony on posting messages on a globally accessible message board under your real name decrying the loss of privacy caused by social media, but I'm buggered if I can find it...

Similarly is the reverse logic of posting without putting your real name, even in the profile!

Just call me an old luddite dinosaur.

Well no, that would be mean and uncalled for.

Not using your real name is sensible if you want to avoid those risks you mention. I use my real name on some sites, a generic name on others. Think schools should be teaching kids basic privacy so they can avoid the pitfalls.

Anyway, roll on the first new signing.

Take your point, and lets agree to disagree.

Most important bit is the signing, when it happens.

Lets hope it's worth waiting for.

That young spring chicken striker, ex reading, signing permanently, will do for a start please!!

COME ON YOU YELLOWWSSAA!!

I could've guessed your first comment was going to be negative Enzo.

Enzo, we're Boro not Man United... This guy is the best at what he does in our league. From what I've heard he's a younger version of Dennis but scored 29 goals last season too.

Anyone performing that well at this level, wanted by loads of other clubs, is a major signing for us.

Personally, with him sitting behind Coxy and Cureton or Perry, I'm very excited.

That's a lot of goals.

Jamie and Perry both proved last season how important is is to have strikers with instinctive scoring ability, so welcome aboard Connor! :)

Agreed, good young prospect. But seems to be a similar player to Pat Cox? Not sure we could play two big men up front.
I'm guessing Jamie, understandably, is seeing is any offers come in from a higher level.

If you're going to effectively play three up front, with one sat behind the other two, you need four strikers.

Calcutt plays in a totally different role. Far more skillful with vision. He's a big number ten who will sit behind Cox and Perry. Cox plays in the box. Doesn't really hold the ball up, just flicks the ball on.

All 3 have the potential to score 20-30 goals. Happy times!!
