Straight replacement for Rochemback and Boeteng. We need to add two more additional player to cover up No 1 shirt and Defender/Left Back. For me Brad and Turnbull is not experience enough to handle pressure week by week.They need more time to get No 1 shirt.loan one of them to gain experience.That what i see area we need to cover up.other area looks strong enough. with Oneil want to commit with Boro next season.i believe Soughtgate will push him to middle alongside Digard and allowed Emnes play wide on right. With Tuncay(Awesome) and Alves infront,nothing to worry and also with Huth and Mido is back! Mido losing 10 kg like new bullet for Boro. Can't wait new season started.
