Well that'd be a bit funny.

I have heard we are preparing bids for Johnson Clarke Harris (Bristol rovers) and Randell Williams (Exeter) . This is exactly sums up where we are heading taking chances on lower league players.

 

Striker and a winger which we need.

Maybe thats just indicative of the state of the club's finances?

I'm sure they're not doing it just for the fun of it.

Thank you for the info @diggerlad07. Much appreciated. Clarke Harris has been doing well at bristol before his injury. Think he back and scored again yesterday. As far as Williams is concerned, i will google him once i finished typing this message.

U heard much on how many we looking to sign in jan and if anyone heading towards the exit door?

I cant imagine Randolph will fancy a return there given he will be 2nd choice once Fabianski is fit which i believe he will be come Jan. I only see Randolph leaving if someone can guarantee him 1st team football as that was why he left West Ham. Cant think of many teams in PL who need a no.1....

If that's the case, however much I love him, I hope it's Randolph. We desperately need to keep Britts goals IMO and we barely have enough CBs as it is, so Fry (even though I honestly think he's had somewhat of a poor start to the season) can't go either.

Randolph has been absolutely brilliant for us, but I'd agree I would sooner sacrifice him than Fry or Britt.

Britt has been largely good lately, and has scored half of our goals in his time here, we can't replace him effectively in January, but I'd try to move him on in the summer and replace with somebody much cheaper as I don't think he's ever provided £15m performances.

Fry cost us nothing, is dedicated to Boro and we are so weak and thin defensively as is.

Randolph cost a fair chunk, is still worth a fair chunk, and Pears seems decent enough.

Marvin can stay until summer at least for me. He has he has become somewhat of a utility player for us which is welcome given our lack of numbers. He can play left wing-back and also either flank. And whilst he not been a world beater, minus his stupidity v Hull, he has performed well when called upon imo.

I'd like us to add another CB as well that, especially if he's going to continue with the wingback system.

I suppose any offers for the big earners have to be accepted. Maybe Britts injury might scupper a move. If he does go we will need 2 attackers though.

    • I remember sitting in a pub in the Algarve that had a load of different games in TV for that 8-1 game. Was with my dad and brother, next to a bunch of united fans (were playing Wigan who were just above us going into that final weekend). Drunkenly said to one of them that I'll get a round of shots in for every goal they put past Wigan, and one of their group chimed in that he'd do the same every time we scored.   Safe to say I got the better deal
    • I think you may be right. I seem to remember moaning about the lack of goals we scored that season. 
    • That City game was a freak game rather than a brilliant performance.  It was common knowledge that Ericsson was going to be sacked after the game so I don't think their players were fully motivated, City went down to 10 men and a few of their players threw the towel in after that. We scored a few great goals in that game but it felt a bit like a friendly game towards the end of the match.  I think that result has become more famous over the years because of how big City have become, before they had the money they were no bigger than us as a club and it felt like we used to beat them every season. 
    • Funnily enough enough as far as I remember that 8-1 was the only game that entire season when we scored more than 2 goals. I may be wrong but it's what I remember, didn't bother checking haha. 
    • I went for Brentford.  I think the games I'd like to see are the last game at Ayresome Park, Boro 4-1 vs United and Man City 8-1. The last 2 would be a great reminder to the recent Boro teams you are allowed to win by more than a goal and score more than 3 on occasions.
