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.

    • Well I can claim absolutely zero inside knowledge and don't even make a habit of reading the Gazette any more, but even a blind person could see that things are rotten at the club from top to bottom, based on most of the things p-mards mentioned in his original post. Player recruitment - an absolute joke the last few seasons. No obvious plan with regard to building a competent, balanced team, with adequate cover in all areas. Always seems to be late rush-jobs, getting anyone who's cheap / free and available. Or occasionally splurging on a "big name" thats out of favour at their club. Hence the lamentable squad we're currently lumbered with. Also not helped by the frequent changes of management. Coaching - non-existent for quite some time, as far as I can tell. At least since Karanka left anyway. Players actually seem to get worse instead of better. Management - no stability for the last few seasons. None of the incumbents has had the chance to really put their stamp on the team. Major contributing factor to the state of the squad with lots of players leaving / coming in and changes in playing philosophy. Chairman / Board - well the buck ultimately stops with them (or maybe just Gibson). I would very much like to know just what the hell they've been doing since 2009. From the outside, it looks like they've spent most of their time faffing around at Rockliffe Park, playing golf, having saunas or whatever. They certainly haven't spent much time planning the club's future. We had 4 seasons of parachute payments after getting relegated, which gave us 1 season to have a crack at bouncing back, followed by 3 of consolidating in the Championship, if it didn't work out. Also sacked Southgate after just 13 games, while we were in a reasonable run of form. First knee-jerk sacking IMO. Since then, we've had periods of boom & bust (more bust though). They clearly didn't manage the transition from PL to Championship very well, as the club has had to undergo drastic cost-cutting. We've brought in managers on short term contracts to keep us afloat on a shoestring budget. Infamously got Garry Monk in and loosened the purse strings so we could "smash the league" - then sacked him after just half a season. Okay we didn't look like getting promoted, but also smacks of idiotic, short-term thinking. Nowhere in all this can I see any evidence of simply getting a manager in on a reasonable (3 year) contract and simply giving them time, plus reasonable resources to just rebuild the club to a stable, healthy position...without the pressure of either keeping us up, or getting us promoted. No evidence of trying to recruit competent coaching staff, to go along with our top-class training facilities. No evidence of trying to build a scouting network, or appointing a director of football to help get our player recruitment on track. This collective of clowns (again - maybe mostly Gibson) has managed nothing over the last 11 years...except to make the club a laughing stock.  
    • I don’t think Big Sam would have taken the job. We lost Pulis because he wouldn’t take a pay cut which in hindsight is ridiculous. How many teams in the history of football have offered a decreased salary to an existing manager, it was absolute amateur hour in the boardroom.    I’m with you on George, but I do think that Ravel Morrison has something about him too. 
    • Hahaha *** hell, seriously *** off
    • There must be many situations where disciplinary action is completed before criminal action. If not Sheffield Wed or Wigan could get promoted within 2 years and then because of being under a different jurisdiction could escape punishment.
    • Has to be gorgeous George, met him a few times and hes been a good wingman for the ladies. He may have lost a bit of pace and awareness on the pitch but on a night out hes topus notchus and still has it.
