One of the lowest scorers in the league, blows half the budget on a center back.

A CB that has barely played in 2 years on top of that.

Hes from the Boro though! Jobs for the boys!

We’re currently playing with a midfielder in defence and have a 16 year old Wood as backup with Shotton injured. Getting a defender in seems fairly reasonable. That said we obviously need pace and creativity.

Yeah, bear in mind we still never replaced Flint. Still, bringing in only Gibson could be... problematic.

As others have said, we do actually need another CB. 

It's all about whether it's Ben Gibson, or Ben Gibson AND some attacking players.

Saville is garbage what did he actually do last night? 

Saville improved once Clayton went off and he was paired with McNair.

Do we really though? How about we sign some attacking players that allows woodgate to go back to his favoured 433 then at best we may need a short term cover Cb. Not waste our supposed tiny budget on someone who is on huge wages comparatively and pretty much would need the rest of the season to get up to speed in anyways.

I'm not sure Ben would need that long to get back up to speed. He knows the club inside out, and I'm sure he'd rebuild his partnership with Ayala pretty quickly. Providing his wages aren't indecent, it's a good move all round.

(Let's ignore the fact that leaving for Burnley was a bad move in the first place, even if it seemed sensible at the time.)

Well yes, we do, we are so short at cb we have played a midfielder there for the last 4 games because we have ONE injured cb. Our backup cb is 17 years old.

Yes, we do need a cb.

Technically speaking, we played a midfielder there because the manager insists on playing three central defenders even when we don't have them available.  I suspect Friend is viewed as a central defender as well but really who knows.  Trying to understand how people at this club think is a sure fire way of driving yourself insane.

Selling Randolph to fund lots of loan signings would be a bit short sighted.

It's the type of thing this club usually does.

If you go back to the Mowbray era he was told there was no money for transfers then Gibson went out and brought Woodgate back to the club behind Mowbray's back.

Is it possible Gibson might be coming in on loan to replace Ayala who might be sold in January and we will then look to replace Ayala more long term in summer?

Alexander Milosevic according to someone on another forum but that would be January not in the summer.

He'd be on a free as he left Forest in October so that's no surprise. He also scored against us in April...

    • Apart from some unfounded speculation on here I have seen nothing to suggest he hasn’t been paid. Do you know that he hasn’t been paid? If he hasn’t, then I’m surprised he hasn’t just said so, instead of saying he can understand if people think he is a money grabbing player with no loyalty, but hopes that people will forgive him for only thinking about himself.  There is nothing to suggest he hasn’t been happy taking his pay during the last few months without lifting a finger and now he can only think about himself. 
    • Report on Moukoudi which can be filed in the section 'complete bullshit' https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2020/06/04/report-woodgate-signing-already-facing-middlesbrough-exit-pl-clubs-will-bid-9m/
    • Where is the evidence to prove he has or hasn't getting paid? I haven't personally seen it yet.
    • Aye, it does put it all into perspective when you say it like that 😰
    • I'm aware of the current situation at Charlton but he has been getting paid.  I don't understand why you two keep suggesting he hasn't been?  I know the club is a shambles but the players have still been getting their wages.  His decision not to play is solely based on fear that an injury might impact a potentially lucrative contract offer somewhere else.
