I don't know how close the relationship is between Boro and the Gazette these days, but the conspiracy theorist in me suspects that Sol Bamba is quite likely to get offered a deal here, and that a few recent Gazette articles singing his praises and highlighting his qualities are paving the way for that announcement to come.

But it could just be that there isn't much else going on to write about, and I'm reading too much into it

I would be shocked if Bamba isn't offered a deal and have felt like that ever since we announced he was training with us.

if Bamba is happy playing backup with a package that reflects that, then his experience and leadership will be welcome

to be fair there are worse things we could do. Sol Bamba for one year as a cover and around to act as a teacher for our young CBs would be fine.

Bamba definitely offered a deal. I also think for the right money as a 4th choice CB who can help the 23’s it’s a good call. Means wood can go out on load too for more experience

More jobs for the boys. Just end up needing more players next year. Get younger players in and get them bedded in while we are treading water this season.

Yeah, I was against it at first, but considering he'd be backup, probably pretty low wages, effectively the role Woodgate had under Karanka, it isn't the worst thing.

Sorry, but a 36 year old who has started one game since march 2019 is not a good signing in any way shape or form. It's completely lacking in imagination, a waste of resources and if he hadn't played under Warnock before no one would be happy with this.

What if he's on £100 a week

There really are worse things we could do with what I would imagine is a contract that barely touches our resources. It's not so much his previous with Warnock for me, but fact is he was a very good leader whilst he was at Cardiff and teams don't often get promoted without them. The fact our captain is still apparently Jonny Howson at this stage says a lot to me about what's changed in that respect since last season.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
