Could even be part of the Randolph deal having them give us first option on him, whether by means of a loan or permanent signing this month or in the summer.

We could do with an experienced defender but if it's a choice between trudging along trying to scrape together the pennies for Gibson or what I would suspect would be a significantly cheaper option with Oxford, I'd prefer the latter right now.

Augsburg signed him last summer on a 4 year contract.

Oxford certainly seemed hyped up when with West Ham. I would however like us to source a left footed CB. Not only would it give balance but I think Fry will be a lot more comfortable on the right.

Fits the bill of the players we supposedly are wanting to sign.

He’s young, has potential, versatile and athletic. Could be suited in a back 3.

If the price is right it’s a big yes from me.

I remember his debut away at Arsenal when he was 16 and he was one of the best players on the pitch. I dont think the changing of managers over the last 5 years at West Ham helped him, he was tipped for the very top.

That's the pre-match weight. Modern balls are far better at repelling water.The old balls would soak it up more.  Anyone that headed a ball in the 70s or even a 1980s Mitre Delta will tell you the difference from a modern ball.

Yeah that one shifted about, the jubalana went completely over the top, it was like when you volley a penny floater.

I literally couldn't think of a worse signing if I was a Stoke fan. I've loved George for us but his best days are well behind him and he's had a lot of injuries. 

The story doesn't make a lot of sense to me. 

I was told that he has had chronic back issues for 2 years, that he has been 'managing'. I would think it is more likely that he will retire than move.

You mean a “flyaway” 😉

That George friend article is a glitch on the website I think. I’m pretty sure that article is from November and it has accidentally been reposted

Woodgate said he thinks he'll get a 'few more in' suggests 2-3 personally I want people who'll be here past May since the season now is a write off I saw Oxford to Venlo was going to be an option to buy in the summer for 2.5 million euros if that one comes through hopefully we'll have the option.

Freeman, Jones and Oxford would do us nicely all 3 we could feasibly sign permanently in the summer and not break the bank if they perform well.

Mark Drury asked Woodgate about Ben Gibson. Drury said obviously Ben has been seen in and around the place (referring to Rockcliffe i assume) and if that is someone he would like. Woodgate said he the chairman's nephew so he can visit whenever he likes. When he was pushed if he woild want Gibson back he said "lets see what happens".

    • good win that. its great going onto the other teams messageboards and seeing the same comments after every game. here are the typical ones.  Boro are terrible, diabolical, very poor, awful team etc etc. often the same posters comments say we(not us) cant pass the ball, we keep hoofing it long, our midfield are awful. only 1 shot on target all game --------------------------------- for any oppo fans, yep other teams struggle against us because, we work harder, close down faster, tackle harder and we are more organised and actually have several really good players. just want to hope we dont start scoring more because we'll take some stopping.
    • We haven’t conceded a goal from open play yet in 8 games. Penalty and corners only.
    • BBC Tees said that the touted McNair swap was with Stoke for Sam Clucas. McNair has been brilliant so far this season so it seems like it was the right decision to keep him.
    • I'm delighted with the win. Warnock has worked absolute wonders with Fry, Dijksteel and McNair. This season I think we're going to be similar to our promotion winning team under Karanka, with the way that we'd do well against the better teams and struggle against the not as good teams. Finding a knack of winning them games like today is going to help us repeat them gritty wins against the lesser sides. Our style of football is going to be frustrating at times, sure, but I can easily accept it as we're going in the right direction after several years of drifting backwards in a seemingly unstoppable manner until Warnock came in. Considering the shambolic state that we were in last season, the incredibly tough opening fixture list and the disappointment in the transfer market, Warnock has done a fantastic job to turn us into such a highly effective team in such a short space of time. Some fans were similarly moaning about Karanka's style of play in our promotion season, however, he got us promoted in the end and even the most idealistic of us will have fantastic memories from his time here; certainly more good memories than the three and a half season since he left when we've had next to no good memories. If Gibson's track record is anything to go by then we're going downhill whenever Warnock leaves anyway so maybe we can stockpile the negativity to one side for then? We may as well try to enjoy these times of *fingers crossed* getting results ugly before Gibson plays “Teesside managerial roulette” again and appoints Roy Chubby Brown as our next manager after he convinces him through a Powerpoint presentation that he can get us playing football just like Liverpool. It's also worth noting how much our home record has improved. Even under Warnock’s games last season we really struggled at home. Last season overall we won 6, drew 8 and lost 9. So far this season we've won 2, drew 2 and lost 0. We're undefeated in 7 league games now too. Lets try to enjoy it.
