Middlesbrough's Mowbray compares Leeds United's McCormack to Rooney and Suarez!

Ok, Tony Nobody wasn't comparing the playing ability of the Scottish international with the granny shagger and the Uruguayan cannibal, but even mentioning the three in the same breath is inviting a degree of ridicule. Mind you, given the way Miserablebrough ended last season, Mowbray must be quite familiar with ridicule.

The point he was making is that the door has not yet closed on the McCormack transfer saga. Suarez may yet go, albeit to Real Madrid rather than Arsenal, and Rooney could yet leave Manchester United. Both clubs have insisted their men are not for sale, but the proof of the pudding will be in the eating. Mowbray could, of course, have mentioned Gareth Bale whilst he was about it.

To be fair, in all three cases, the players have been pressing for a move, whereas McCormack has repeatedly said he is happy at Leeds. But that's before he has heard the salary Boro might be willing to offer him.

It's an old cliché but true nevertheless - money talks; and despite the history of both clubs, the Smoggies have more of it than Leeds. Past glories will not give McCormack the financial security he and his agent will crave, and if Boro dangle a big enough carrot, the Scotsman is not going to prove the stereotype wrong in a hurry.

Tony Nobody concedes that it will "not be easy" for Leeds to part with a player who has scored 3 goals already this season, but he insists, "I don't think it's over."

Leeds fans will point to the on going contract negotiations as proof that McCormack is going nowhere but he is under contract anyway so this is irrelevant. A longer contract and a higher wage simply inflates McCormack's transfer value and puts him in a stronger bargaining position when negotiating terms should he move.

And Middlesbrough may not be his final destination. Blackpool have bid for him and are now flush with £5m from the sale of Phillips. And I still have a hunch that 'Arry will make a last minute bid.

If Mowbray hasn't given up hope, Leeds fans shouldn't take anything for granted.

  6. This is a nothing article to be honest, all speculation and no substance. He may go, he may not but no way will he leave for the 1.3m boro offered he is a 3m+ player and to sell to a championship side should inflate that tag to deter them in my opinion. On the other hand he will do better than that long haired tit west ham bought....

    1. McCormack is better than Carroll? This is the same player that scored a mighty 1 in 5 goals for Motherwell in the super powerful Scottish league lol.

      I hope you lot make a decent push and we get to play you lot in the FA Cup (It wont be the league for a while at least) will see how much Carroll would batter you

  8. can you honestly see rossco going to blackpool. no disrespect to them but hardly a step up the ladder is it.you could say the same about middlesbrough, if he was to go it would only be for money because hes already at one of the biggest clubs in the country.

  11. Miserablebrough, Tony Nobody. Quality stuff. I predict a top class career in journalism ahead of you.

  12. A 5k increase in wages per week equals one million over four years, Mcormack will take this whichever club (including Leeds)come in with it. I suspect Boro have the upperhand at the present.....

  17. You say on one hand that to mention the three players in the same breath is ridiculous then proceed to say he's so good that he's bound to get other clubs sniffing around.

    How about this for a fact. You will write anything to try and make the Leeds supporters bite and you are very successful at this. The puzzling question is why can you be so bothered?

    Oh and I won't discount West Ham sniffing around Ross either. They cant score goals.

  19. If you're West Ham fans then why the duck do you always talk about Leeds?
    I thought we weren't famous anymore?

  20. I hate your total disrespect of people Southern Troll, Eg. Nice Guy Brian, Reverend McDermott and now Tony Nobody! Both these blokes have managed to get to where they are via hard work and dedication, yes one of them might be not doing as well as their fans expected, but both earn a hell of a lot more money in 1 month than you do all year round. So when you can actually get out of your pokey little Peckham shithole and get a job that pays the equivalent then you can act like a pius prick if you really feel the need.

  21. Awful piece of writing.

  22. Your method of attracting a viewing of your blogs are extremely dubious. Headlines that provoke the masses will undoubtedly give a high score. But I have to question your motive.
    You appear to provoke the fans of clubs that you revile, for some reason.
    I can only surmise S&M must be your badge of honour.
