Certainly don’t like the new strip, looks shite. Don’t understand the fascination with red on the shirt over the last few years

You won't like the red away kit then !

I've never understood the love in with Le Fondre. 

A goal every 4 games or so. He was never prolific. 

It's not that I dislike him - he just gets talked about like we was banging hat tricks in for fun. 

I thought he did well and played well in his first two spells

Then part of a struggling team in his third spell

Used to like watching him play and offer something up front as opposed to some of the other dross we had to choose from at the time

Bit like Clough, a player you thought could do something given a sniff

Parkinson to blame. Clueless on CF’s

One of the best prem goals to minutes ratio albeit 12 goals. A goal every 124 mins.  
I thought he was great for us

Agreed.  We've watched some bloody awful strikers over the years, and he was class.  I don't need to look at his goalscoring record, which is probably great here and elsewhere, to know he was/is a great striker and footballer (relatively).  If any Bolton fan watched him for us and didn't think he was one of our best, outside the Prem/top division days, they weren't watching properly - or it was the days Parky put him either on the bench or the wing (with Armstrong probably).

Class act le fondre.

always thought he could make something happen when he got on the ball.

excellent finisher

Yes, great finisher Maple and surely every bit as much good as a finisher for us as CJ was although I somehow don’t see him as an Evatt player! ☹️

As a last 20 minute player he’d be worth signing, guaranteed he’ll score and create more goals than Jerome.

I'll put this here not least because 2 days into the window, this thread has dried up.

Luke Matheson has ended his spell at Bohemians.  Started some games but not all, still had a few niggling injuries.

Guess he'll be back here for pre season training after a break, but even though I'd love him to succeed, think he's on his way somewhere in L2 - maybe on loan.

Does anybody have anything on the Josh Coburn Rumour. Could step in for Charles until fit

Another whose current club is Bolton on Wicki

Definitely a talent and one for the future and if Boro feel he needs another season out in L1 why not. He could add the size and physicality we’ve been missing up top as well.

Thought he was very good against us at our place a couple of seasons ago, looked a real prospect.

Not seen much of him since though

Never heard of him, which is pretty much par for the course currently. 

21 years old, Middlesbrough player. Played 21 Championship games last season, scored 5.

We don't often get that.

You clearly haven't been following my one man PR campaign/charm offensive over the last ten years - usually described by sad fuckers on here as "blowing smoke up their ass". There are a lot of clubs with decent fans who like us or at least don't hate us. Unfortunately there are a lot of Wanderers fans whose mission in life is to piss off everyone else.

Can't say I've ever come across an away fan who likes us because of your PR offensive though

Sorry Lusty, I’m with Sanchez on this one. 
We don’t often get compliments.

Checked his goals and he’s a number assisted by Collins when they were at Bristol together, 6-3 target man, it’s a yes from me.

Aye just what we need for tapping in those 300 balls a game across the box from the byline :)
