Am told the bids for Goode so far are just shy of £500k so a bit of work to do for any buying clubs

Also itís both Boro and QPR whoíve bid
Could be that Pearson will soon be installed as the next manager at Middlesbrough, or Head Coach as Watford pedantically refer to the role as!

Is the touted £750k figure what the club value him at & the minimum they will accept?

If he goes to Boro, wouldn't mind Marcus Browne being part of the deal or even a season long loan...if only to pi55 off Poxford  Grin

Any other nuggets in or out ntfclad?

To be fair he'd have been playing in League 1 and impressing as well. He's impressed for us in L2.

I know Iím probably guilty of knicker wetting but it beggars belief that once again we have got promoted to league one and we are looking at a complete rebuild. If Goode goes (which looks very likely as KT is now on record as saying we wonít stand in his way if a big club comes in and 2 have now come in for him) and Oliver turns his contract down (I know heís not exactly harry Kane but he has been very effective for the way we play) then we could be left with just 5 of the players that started the playoff final.

Those inside the club are a bit confused at the £750k figure and where itís come from is what Iíve been told, potentially aware of the backlash on social media

Warnock has already accepted the job going forward (as of yesterday).

First mention of that figure I saw was Keith Downie on twitter to be fair
Perhaps thats the amount 'Boro and QPR value him at rather than on our sided

I donít know why anyone is in the least bit surprised that the club have got promoted and are dismantling the squad.

There is no ambition to be anything other than a league two club

Same old same old.

So you're saying that we value him for more than that then? I know he has two years on the contract so we have that on our side, but there can't be that many League Two centrebacks that go for north of a million.

Goode still here and club stating they want to keep him.of course they say that, but we all know that if a lower league club gets offered enough he'll be on his way, thats football
Oliver offered a new deal. Obviously dont know how good boviously we don't, however there must be a reason he hasn't signed up yet
Wharton & Morton already talking to the clubs to get them back do we know this for sure? Wharton has already stated his intention to fight for a place at his parent club

McCormack (would have kept him) replaced replaced with an unknown from the division below....when McCormack came in he was a league 1 player and we were league 2, we've replaced him with a league 2 player now we are League 1

As for the others, early days yet but Turnbull has gone..... Cornell who appeared in the majority of games last season has gone, and Andy Williams, our top scorer over the last two seasons has gone too.

I'm not saying I necessarily agree with "dismantled"....but you can see where he's coming from. The likes of Marquis and Collins returned to their parent clubs, and Adams and Holmes went off to pastures new in 2016, and Rob Page was also accused of "dismantling" the squad.

Turnbull struggled in L1 for Coventry didn't he?

Maybe Vadaine has already signed up and it just hasn't been announced yet?

Goode was always going to leave, we don't have the capacity to turn down bids of a certain amount and I also assume Goode would want to play in the Championship, it isn't always a lack of ambition to keep a player.

We know the club have said they have held conversations about Morton/Wharton - if one of both of them don't want to come back, what can the club do?

McCormack, too expensive for the games he plays but agree he would have been good to keep.

Ultimately, glass half full or glass half empty, right?

It's a very very different scenario to the Rob Page summer and if you can't see that then more fool you.

It's a difficult one because whilst under normal circumstances I'd want to play hardball & insist on a price tag of a million, these aren't normal times & I think there will definitely be a downturn in clubs paying big transfer fees in the EFL. The facts are that 750k would be a massive boost & possibly sustain us for a season with the prospect of other sides simply struggling to survive.

I do think Goode has massive potential though, so in some ways a decent sell-on clause may end up being the most important thing, I think he's a born winner & is likely to go right to the top.

Closer to a million apparently

Teams that keep the core of their first team and improve on it normally do fine, teams who throw the baby out with the bath water tend to struggle.

I personally think you need to keep about 75% of you back 5 together and most of the spine.

Players come, players go.
Likes to hoof it up top a lot, and when he played against Championship opposition in Derby, he got caught out and should have been sent off in the 1st leg.
And don't forget the 1st leg of Cheltenham when he didn't deal with the corner correctly for their 1st goal.
Call me cynical but whatever is offered we should take. As people on here have said there will be a lot of players looking for clubs, who may turn out to be better.

I disagree completely - he was immense in the home game against derby and there was a collective failure for the Cheltenham goal, you donít mention how superb he was in the playoff second leg and final. He is only 23 and I agree with the club valuation of £1m, Iím far less confident that KC will get anywhere near that to invest in the team.
