On a more serious note, if Randolph did end up being sold, would people be comfortable with Mejias as first choice for the coming season?  I think he was first choice in Cyprus so he is coming off the back of regular football.  Just a hypothetical question, no reason to think it will be the case of course.

I'd be willing to give him a chance, but would expect us to be looking at bringing in another keeper to challenge each other. We only really saw him make cameo appearances in the past so I wouldn't want to write him off based on that.

Kike Garcia, yes. 

 

Kike Sola, no. 

(Thankfully the latter is now retired.)

I'd at least let the club have a really good look at him in the friendlies. But I'd also expect us to have a good look at who else is available on the market.

I actually think we'd have been 15-18 points worse off without Randolph last year. He saved us, literally, so many times.

Mejias is fine for a backup, but he's not good enough to be our No 1. The opposition just target and bully him as he can't catch or punch crosses.

Bogdan is available on a free  ,  wasnt  a success at Liverpool, but seem to remember him being highly rated at Bolton.  Agree though we need to concentrate on a couple of full backs and  wingers/playmakers  first .

Does the italics mean you're being sarcastic, I sure hope so about Bogdan anyway  ?

NO! 

I'm happy with Mejias as a back up, but there is absolutely no way he is ready to start week in week out in the Championship. Randolph has set the bar pretty high so if he was to be sold he would have to be replaced with someone with equal quality.

I don’t agree with this. Yes Randolph May have saved us some points but you’re making out that a different keeper wouldn’t have made any of the same save. A different keeper may not of saved them all but they may of also made saves Randolph didn’t. I think Randolph’s a great keeper at this level but he also has a bad habit of directing he’s saves back into the danger area.

Blackburn apparently making a bid for Karl Darlow, would be a decent replacement if Randolph were to go.

    • My initial thought too Maccarone, I was gutted when walking home from work & seen the gazette headline Cummins up for sale, not longer after Sunderland snapped him up, bad business IMHO 
    • Thought he was going to be a superstar, sadly never quite worked out that way.
    • Boro flashback 12th November 1977 Villa 0 Boro 1 Who remembers Stan Cummins the 1st million pound footballer which Jack sort of said at a media meeting & the press changed his words around  Well Stanley scored his 1st Boro goal on his 1st appearences of the season taking both points back to Teesside & our 2nd away win of the season  Pat Cuff was standing in for Jim Platt, John Neal was trying to find who was going to be his No1 keeper of the 3 on the Boro's books Boro team Pat Cuff  Ian Bailey  Terry Cooper  Graeme Souness  Stuart Boam  Alan Ramage  John Mahoney  Stan Cummins - 3rd appearance  Billy Ashcroft  Tony McAndrew  David Armstrong   
    • Agree with most of this, but I'm far from confident about us retaining Championship status. If we can use the decent performance against QPR as a springboard and start picking up points more often, we might end up quite comfortable. Knowing Boro though it'll be a last-game-of-the-season nailbiter.
