Looking to keep him on for another year. Much much lower wage and maybe some coaching.

Before this season he was hoping to have this and next season playing. Sadly, not going to happen. 

Gutting news, what's actually wrong with him?

Sorry I just needed to see kids as off to London tomorrow until saturday.   Randolph - West Ham tried to renegotiate with us and wanted a loa  as they couldn't be sure with injury... woody s

@Lurker, @diggerlad07 @Smoggydownsouth and all the other ITK posters. Thank you for all the ITK info you guys share. Think i speak for everyone when i say it is much appreciated. Without it the l

Roberts is done. As someone has said, Ayala is on £25k a week. Don’t know what he’s been offered but I can’t believe it would be £5k. Randolph is gone, assume it’s West Ham.    5 more

Few names being branded about Clarke, Gisbson Etc.  Just a few names for alternatives who may interest us.  In my humble opinion we are short a Keeper if Randolph goes, CB, AM/Winger and a Forward if Britt leaves.

How about:

GK: Peacock Farrel

CB : Jagielka

AM: Tomlin

STK: Success

Unless Villa make a huge sale (Grealish) I cant see them buying Britt this January. They are in massive FFP troubles and need to cost costs before the season ends. Their current finances are reportedly already in breach of FFP rules in the Premier League. Can you see them spending 8-10 million on a championship striker if that’s true? That said they might not have a say if a team triggers Grealish 45 million buyout clause and he’s drawn to a bigger club. Although I can see him turning a move down to help villa survive.

Peacock Farrell: Don't really see what he offers that Pears doesn't apart from a bit more experience. My mates who support Leeds reckon he's got potential but they didn't feel confident with him between the sticks. I'd just stick with Pears for now to be honest. If he drops in form, Meijas is an okay backup and we can address that in Summer.

Jagielka: He's 37 and has recently rejoined his boyhood club. I can't imagine he's champing at the bit to go out on loan for 6 months and is probably just enjoying being back around SU. Theres likely a lot better/fresher CBs we could get on loan.

Tomlin: Him knowing the club is probably the only positive here. From what I gather, he didn't really do much in League 1 last season.

Success: Haven't seen much of him play to be honest, but his stats don't fill me with hope. I know stats aren't everything but 5 goals and 5 assists in 60 games for Watford doesn't get me excited.

Sooner the better, then we can look to the future. 

Yeah, considering how quick we want to do our stuff, it does feel like the Randolph deal is holding us up a bit.

Regarding Billy Sharp:

Quote

'The decision is with Billy'

Sheff Utd v West Ham (Fri, 20:00 GMT)

Sheffield United

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder says he will allow Billy Sharp to make his own decision about whether or not he leaves the club this month.

A handful of Championship sides have enquired about the availability of the Blades captain, who has started only one Premier League game this season.

"I spoke to him about three weeks ago about it, knowing what would come up in January," said Wilder.

"And rightly so. If I was in the Championship and needed someone to give us a boost in January and score us some goals between now and the end of the season and saw that Bill Sharp wasn't playing at Sheffield United then I would be asking the question.

"Always the decision is with Billy. Obviously from an individual point of view, Billy is disappointed he's not playing.

"The decision is with him and if he comes to me and says he needs to be playing then I will respect that. But we need him here as well between now and the end of the season so our need is just as big, if not bigger, as those clubs in the Championship."


 

Quote

Sharp's influence is 'huge' - Wilder

Sheff Utd v West Ham, (Fri, 20:00 GMT)

Sheffield United

Some more meat on the bone of the Billy Sharp situation via the Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder:

"He has an important part to play - and has played an important part with the pressure he has put on the strikers," said Wilder.

"Young strikers as well. How good is it for the likes of Callum Robinson, Lys (Mousset) and Oli (McBurnie) to have Billy to learn from?

"From my point of view, the example he has set, and is setting, and the influence he has on those young players is huge."

EDIT: On the subject of Sheffield United though, I wonder if maybe Richard Stearman is an option for a loan centre-back. Surely cheaper and easier to bring in than Gibson at the moment.

2nd EDIT: Added another quote to just above the first one that suggested Sharp probably won't leave, scrolled through and seen another one that actually indicates he may leave.

Tomlin is on fire this season. 4G 6A in 17GP. He's been phenomenal for Cardiff recently. Finally seems to be enjoying football again,

    • imo, anyone who criticises Marcus T either doesn't see us playing very often or doesn't have a particularly good understanding of the game. Not meaning to sound harsh, but his contribution to the team is very clear to see. He's not perfect by any means, but then not many players are, especially at this level. If you're just simply looking for players to criticise then there are usually about 8 or 9 players you should start with before Mr T each game  
    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view
