Lol no; as far as I can see the tweet was 100% referencing Randolph. If it wasn't the guy can't phrase a sentence to save his life.

So Randolph has actually managed to fail a medical with an injury that doesn't exist? 🤨

Actually, y'know what, scratch where I was going with that. This is West Ham. They love constantly injured players.

Just remember that Wilshere passed his medical! I'm sure someone could turn up with 1 leg and pass the medical at West Ham!

Maybe he’s become so used to feigning injuries that he’s now a master of it? 🙄

There are some who probably believe that 🙄

They certainly will CT. There are none so blind than those who will not see.

Sorry, are you talking about Britt here? He misses more sitters than he scores mate, facts. 

You do realise all strikers miss chances? More than they score

I've never heard of a confidence poacher before. I might see if I can get a start somewhere. Sounds like a nice role for 20k plus a week 

We get it, you don't rate him but he still has scored 16, 15, 14, 15 and 33 in his last 5 seasons. He's a poacher, scores and streaks and benefits from as manager who backs him hence a confidence poacher. He works harder for the team than he's given credit for too.

You might not have been happy with his output for the money paid, feel like he misses too many chances or whatever but he consistently scores goals. Probably not as much as he should have but he's never had a full season in the championship where he has scored less than 14.

Bernie was a poacher, didn't close down, offside a lot, greedy. 

 

1986–87 Third Division 17 league 22 total

1987–88 Second Division 21 league 24 total

1988–89 First Division 15 league 18 total

1989–90 Second Division 21 league 32 total

1990–91 Second Division 16 league 20 total

1991–92 Second Division 16 league 18 total

Those are the kind of figures I expect from a quality championship poacher who doesn't contribute much when not scoring (to be fair he contributed a lot more than Britt and even played a spell at left wing)

I hope we make a profit on Randolph, I know we take a hammering in most of our bizniss but surely we have increased the boro black kojak's stock?

I genuinely don't believe that Randolph rumour. Obviously I could be wrong but he's always come across as so professional and a decent bloke.

Club know they can save A LOT of money with him leaving and since Pears has looked good it's a no brainer for the board.

Consistantly scores goals. Thats a lie. And if your only job is to hang around the box and poach goals and you don't expect him to do the other simple stuff that's expected from footballers then the returns you've mentioned simply arnt good enough.

Randolph deal still expected to happen.. slight issue with scarring on thigh muscle shown on scan. I'm 99% sure deal will happen otherwise he would of been back at boro today and he is still at Wet Spam.

    • Probably Keane...Leo's quite a sturdy chap, isn't he? 
    • I'm not talking about giving him credit over the long term. I'm saying that game was perhaps the best we've played this season and it was really good. That doesn't happen thanks to luck. West Brom didn't just let us win, we won the tactical battle by being set up tactically in favour of winning the game away at the league leaders. You won't even give him that which says your judgement of short-term victories is blinded by the long-term and the long-term is not something I'm disputing. You don't have to give him a resounding pat on the back for a whole season by allowing one match to be considered a genuine success.
    • Which one? Keane or Leo? Hohoho. Safe travels and enjoy the game!
    • Doesn't look like any team is going to leapfrog Leeds as they're all taking turns in bottling it when they get the chance. Tony Mowbray is doing a great job at Blackburn though.
    • I've been trying to find some optimism for this game, but I don't have any. I can't see anything other than a Barnsley win. They are better than us and should have beaten us at the Riverside (we really got lucky there).  3-0 Barnsley.  I think we can get a point off Charlton, but I am really struggling to see other games where we are likely to pick up points. It's worrying.
