Who is Jones?

Jordan Jones. Our ex academy player now at Rangers but out of favour

Incidentally Jordan Jones started his first game tonight for rangers in months. I am not huge on Jones. I think there better out there.

I believe @Smoggydownsouth said we want 2 more. Hopefully a CB and a wider player. Would love the latter to be a permanent as that would possibly be one less problem position that needs filling in summer. And we will have plenty of positions that need filling anyway come summer time

Echo have confirmed we've made an approach to loan Oxford and we're hopeful of convincing him to come.

On Jordan Jones he played a cup game with Rangers fringe players/youngsters played got hooked after 60 minutes by Gerrard who said he was bored watching them in the first hour. He's the only consistent attacking loan link left on the table and I think he'll end up leaving Rangers soon it's whether it's us or Stoke he definitely would give us something on the left cutting inside.

Woodgate also said that he would have loved to have played a back 4 tonight obviously couldn’t since we only have 1 for centre half. 
 

Personally think Woody wants to go back to the original plan of 4-3-3 as soon as he possibly can.

I always thought Reece Oxford was a DM? I swear that’s when he played in that game against arsenal.

Not really one to share info but been told tonight there is definite interest in Gibson and both parties want it to happen. This information is from the same guy that told me about Ste Walker starting against Stoke which I posted about in the matchday thread a good few days before. As I say just passing on information but makes it more interesting after Woody’s BBC Tees interview.

A few ITK people have said that Gibson would be done already if not for the financial aspects of the deal. Hopefully Randolph leaving means that's closer to being sorted out.

Missed the interview... what was said? Also ref Ben... yes interest from both sides though I have It on good authority If it doesn't move on soon we wont wait... woody knows the next 6 games good be critical and wants players in early as poss.

Drury asked him he knows Ben been in and around the place. He someone you want.  Woodgate said he chairman's nephew so he can visit whenever but when pushed if he wants him he said lets wait and see.

You are correct, he did play DM v Arsenal but he is essentially a Paddy McNair in reverse. Paddy obv being a CM who can play CB if need be. Oxford is a CB who can play DM given he is very comfortable with ball at his feet.

Personally, I’d rather have Oxford than Gibson. Maybe get Chester in on loan too. I honestly can’t see why we’d risk financial stability to bring Gibson back

Defo will be 2 I think... though was told it's a RB and CB but could be 2 CBs and then Howson can cover RB. No more attackers. Chester on just as much as Gibbo in wages mate.

Really? I guess he’s probably too expensive too unless it was a loan till his contract was up. 
 

I definitely think we should be looking at Oxford above all others mentioned. I really like him and he fits the mould exactly in what we’re essentially looking for long term.

    • As CT alluded to possibly on another thread, some people like to knock our young lads at every opportunity. I don’t get it.    he’s really not played a lot yet gets criticised half way through the first half. Last game he got criticised after less than 10 minutes. He ended up having a good game overall and deserves credit for that, not criticism.    but on a more positive note, what a great result against a team we’ve generally struggled against my entire life. 5th in the league is very good when you factor in the teams we’ve played. Dare I say, the football today while not amazing was also not too bad. 
    • Still depends on what you're looking for. I'd say some of the bigger ones include: World of Warcraft Guild Wars 2 The Elder Scrolls Online Final Fantasy XIV EVE Online Runescape Black Desert Online. There's a new one coming in early 2021 that looks quite interesting called New World.  
    • i said it last season, the kids will keep improving and be even better as time goes on. thats what we see now. some of the football today was nice and need fast football. players involved were the young lads and bola. they know eachothers game they are pretty familiar and now the confidence is coming for them we are seeing them express themselves. the shackles are coming off and the young lads are starting to show us what they can do. give it a few months if this form keeps up these kids will be flyin and the goals will be flowing. lot more to come from us yet. well done NW you can see they all love him he's like a grandad figure to them never mind a father figure. he'll give them the love and build their confidence and we'll keep seeing the results of that in their performances, UTB.
    • NW says he has been training at Rockcliffe for the last couple of weeks so his knee must be ok now. NW wants to get him so who would argue with his judgement? Not me.
    • I can't believe it was 5 years ago when I posted this.  Are there any good new ones out that people know about?
