Ayala and Friend would be relatively surprising, as would Clayton I suppose. Just because they feel like they're part of the furniture by now. As soon as he makes an appearance, Friend will have played under 7 Boro managers (including caretakers). Not many recent players can say that! 

The first two should have been out the door before now so I don't know if I'd be surprised or not if they left.  I can't see them being cut price however as I doubt they'd be worth much anyway.

It depends how you view 'surprised' I suppose. The players mentioned have all been here a while, and have hardly ever been linked with moves elsewhere, and from what I've seen, people seem to assume they'll be here next season, so in that respect, it could be considered surprising if they were sold.

I know it's been mentioned elsewhere, but Bristol City have signed Kalas on a permanent deal. They've played a blinder to upgrade from Flint for essentially £3m.

Wasnt Flint 7m?

Yeah I see what you're saying but I think at some point we should be looking to move on and there shouldn't be surprise at that.  Friend isn't what he was and I don't believe the other two are either.

Was he £7m or £6m?

I thought sky sports and bbc said it was in the region of 7m so probably something like 6.75m.

I was thinking £5m, but that was McNair, wasn't it? Yeah Flint was £7m. 

Cheers Pulis.

Unpopular opinion... IF Stoke (or others) want to pay a decent fee for Randz, we should absolutely sell. 
One of the reasons for him to shine like last season was us sitting back and let the opponents attack us.. If it's going to be us attacking and playing it out from the back, he is not my first choice in this league... 

But I would for sure keep, Wing, Tav, Paddy, Britt, Fletcher - The rest I wouldn't mind selling, if we got any replacements in needed areas!

If someone is willing to pay a lot of money for him then I think we'll sell.  I don't think it's such an unpopular opinion mate as people are realistic enough to know that if the money is right then any player will be gone.  That's just how it is.

True

I also think, that for a goalie to be the best man on the pitch, the outfield players and tactics especially have gifted the opponents too much possesion in our last third...

Just for fun - Would you guys rather have Valdes or Randz as our keeper? 😉

A decent championship goalie or a retired goalie who hasn't played in 2 years and is now managing a nothing youth team? 

Not a tough call.

    • Personally I would have liked to see Stokes score more last night, fully accept the circumstances, but if we are too passive and cautious this too can assist the Aussies. One thing for certain we can not rely on Butler getting runs if he comes in early today
    • We really need both stokes and root to get a century, not too confident with the rest of the batters left
    • Well very pleased to see England close the day on 156-3. Very controlled and patient batting for most of the day from Root and Denly have gotten us to this stage. Stokes in the last hour of the day came into bat at 5 in survival mode and made 2 runs (not out) off 50 balls. The first session of tomorrow's play will decide the outcome of this test match (and the Ashes). If Stokes and Root can survive the first 8 overs of play unscathed. At which point the new ball is available to Australia. They will then have to contend with the new ball and the threats that come with it. If they can get to lunch unscathed after the new ball I think that is when the test becomes ours to lose. At this stage I'd happily take England scoring 30 runs all session if it meant losing no wickets. It will also be England's highest ever run chase if we are successful.
    • Our problem has been that we just don't score goals, we've been amongst the lowest scorers in the championship both pre and post our 1 season recently in the PL. This season, although it's early on, seems to be going the same way. While Britt does get goals, he's not what you'd call prolific, we've been set up as a defensive team for a few years now through different managers and scoring has been an added bonus to not conceding goals.
    • No worse than some of the goals our players have missed, and he also scored today. Hugill has scored 3 goals so far this season. That's more than our top scorers. Imagine if he'd scored at the same rate for us as he is now - we might have gone up! Not sure what we do to our strikers - they always seem to do well for everyone else but do less well for us. Bamford a possible exception as he did well for us, although he's really banging them in for Leeds at the moment.
