1) We are being linked with a move for Luke Young. Does it surprise you he wants to go after 12 months?
Yes I'm very surprised, he has settled really well at the club and was one of our better players last season. He looked very relaxed and happy at the Boro team photo-shoot yesterday.
2) What sort of a player would we be getting?
He is Mr Consistent. You would be getting a real work horse. Great footballing brain.
3) How would the Boro fans react if he returns to the Riverside this season in claret and blue?
We all know how fickle football fans are. If he was to go to you and he gave a decent enough reason then we would respect that but if he turned round and said he wanted to go because Boro were not ambitious enough then he would get booed off the pitch at the Riverside.
4) His price is said to be between £3.5m and £5m depending on which paper you read, not a bad quick profit, what do you think he is worth?
Yeah between £4m and £5m would be a good price for us and great bit of business but we don't have any cover at right-back so unless we have someone else lined up already this could just be paper talk.
5) How do you think Boro will get on this season and do you have any feeling (or indeed care) what Villa might do?!
Depending on if Alves and Mido can get a partnership going will be the key to our season. If so then a top ten finish is realistic. If not then we could end up in the same position as last year. Villa will do well again this season. I feel you guys need a goalscorer though. I don't think Carew has got 20 goals in him. You have quality all over the park and will create chances but not having a goalscorer could be the difference between finishing in the top 6 and finishing in the top 10. You'll come above us though!
