As i say if the info I'm getting is utter rubbish then I apologise. Just literally relaying it as I'm told. 

You could well be right and I don't have a clue regarding the contract but like I say I would be just surprised.

I know we offered him 10k a week recently and it was knocked back by his agent.

It's the sort of daft thing we have done in the past which has contributed to where we are now.

Randolph is apparently having his West Ham medical at the Boro according to Alan Nixon. They're sending staff up to make sure he can kick the ball after his injury

I take it that was the Nixon story this morning? But why are they taking it here when he’s been in London for a week now?

Yeah agree to be honest... 2yrs with an option of a 3rd would be my way of doing it however the contract of a footballer is something I have no clue how it works.

🤣 sounds like a Boro medical. “Can he kick a ball?” “Yeah” “sound, get him signed”.

“West Ham. Want signing target Darren Randolph to have a ‘medical’ at Middlesbrough to test his thigh injury before signing him. Worry over whether he is able to lick properly. Want it done on Boro premises.” - Alan Nixon. 
 

God knows what they’re planning to do with poor Darren.

Surprised we haven’t gone back in for Grosicki with the form he’s been in and his contract is up at the end of the season. Still think we need another winger to play on the left, any new names anyone has heard?

Regarding Howson. He probably agreeing to lesser weekly wage than he currently on but on basis of a longer deal. Therefore long term he not losing out financially and for us we are paying him less each year for benefit of our yearly accounts.

No real issue with Howson getting a deal that takes him to 35yrs old as he one of them players who could keep playing until he about 38. As has been said he a top pro who looks after himself who has a willingness and the ability to change his game to suit his physical capabilities as time goes on.

RE: Roberts potential deal. Apparently Celtic agreed £8m fee but Pep pulled the deal. That was after an unbelievable season in Scotland and his value has depleted slightly since so you’re probably looking somewhere around the £5m region.

Make an offer quick because his value is only going to go up

Think it’s unlikely we can do that this window unless Randolph, Britt etc go out.
But yes the price will go up, as will the number of teams interested.

I think be great to get Roberts on a 18 month loan deal with a clause to sign if we're promoted as that's really the only way we can afford it.

Selling Britt and buying Roberts would be a pretty decent use of money tbf, we would make money on Roberts eventually.

    • Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances? Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet. Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction. Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it. Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line. Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you? So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves. 
    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
