DO NOT BUY YOUNG,
You don't need players with good potential, you need players with experience.
In ym first season with Boro i managed to buy Solskjaer, Sibierski, Sheringham, Cole, Larsson....then in the summer of second season i signed Maldini (Awesome!) and Figo.
Don't buy young in first season, buy old and establish yourself.
Although do sign Emiliano Vecchio.
Middlesbrough are all ready well establishedDon't buy young in first season, buy old and establish yourself.
