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.

    • 1. Are you Warnock in, or would you prefer him gone? Still would prefer him gone, 3 wins against 3 terrible sides isn't convincing enough but it's a moot point anyway as it looks like he's staying until the end of the season regardless. SG should have sacked him after the Hull game but didn't so why would he sack him now? Yeah fair enough he sacked Southgate after a win and we were 2nd in the table but the circumstances there were different (I still believe sacking Southgate then was wrong, though.) 2. Looking at the impact our new signings have had recently, just how good was our summer window? It was a decent window, we've had better and we've certainly had worse. I don't think anybody expected Bamba to be our standout defender and it's taken Payero a while to get going (though one could argue that wasn't his fault) but Sporar certainly is a cut above and I've been happy with Uche too, for his workrate and tenacity rather than his ability to hit the back of the net, though. 3. Which of the current injured players would you put straight back in the team when fit? (Fry, Bola, Dijksteel, Hall, Browne) [Not bothering with Ameobi or Fisher as they aren’t real] Bola for definite, I'd keep Bamba and McNair with Howson on the right though. Dijksteel will have to earn his place back in the team for me, and Hall isn't good enough. 4. What’s the best thing to come from Birmingham? Uh.... 5. Is Šporar the best striker we've had since Bamford? Yes, easily 6. Starting 11 and formation? Unchanged team for me, that way we'll see exactly how good we are, playing against better opposition than our last three games. (Great OP, btw)
    • 1. Are you Warnock in, or would you prefer him gone? Stilk Warnock out i think he's stumbled into a system that's worked due to injuries. If he keeps us in the play offs then he's doing the job he was brought into do but i expect us to be in there with this squad and it shouldn't be some sort of miracle he's done.  2. Looking at the impact our new signings have had recently, just how good was our summer window? I think it was a good window and we are starting to see the best of the signings. Who knew game time would help players settle...  3. Which of the current injured players would you put straight back in the team when fit? (Fry, Bola, Dijksteel, Hall, Browne) [Not bothering with Ameobi or Fisher as they aren’t real] I'd put Bola Left back and that's it.  4. What’s the best thing to come from Birmingham? SABBATH. Absolute shithole of a place  5. Is Šporar the best striker we've had since Bamford? Yes and i prefer him. 6. Starting 11 and formation?   Unchanged 
    • He will probably take a break before he comes to take us on in the summer as a Premier League team 😃
    • Sounds like Koeman has finally been binned tonight at Barcelona. They lost again today and are 9th in La Liga.
