Would be typical of us.

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!

Sorry I just needed to see kids as off to London tomorrow until saturday.   Randolph - West Ham tried to renegotiate with us and wanted a loa  as they couldn't be sure with injury... woody s

Roberts is done. As someone has said, Ayala is on £25k a week. Don’t know what he’s been offered but I can’t believe it would be £5k. Randolph is gone, assume it’s West Ham.    5 more

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.

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.

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.

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...

    • Agreed, there must be some truth to it. I hope so anyway.
    • If only we had a king to ask🤔
    • Personally, I quite enjoyed it. Scotland played fantastically well, but then they would. I’d liken it to when a lower league team draws a premier side in the cup. If they come for their big day out and they stick to the game plan, anything can happen.  Always the same when there’s a gulf in class (though Scotland have some good players here and there these days). If anything England got off quite lightly. 
    • England were far too slow getting the ball forward, Southgate favorite Sterling came into the Euro's out of form and struggling to make the Man City 1st 11, watched him get owned by James in the cup final and Tierney last night not good enough. Rice plays DM for West Ham yet  still manages to get into the opposition box and score goals so he's obviously being told not to venture forward. Mason Mount persisted on taking the corners despite not being able to clear the 1st man and he's tracking back and putting a challenge in non existent. Kane is playing with he's back to goal most of the time he's a top striker and the midfield created absolutely nothing for him shouldn't need to be going deep. I don't rate Lyndon Dykes very highly yet he won just about every ball in the air and numerous free kicks. A good coach can see when and where its going wrong and makes the subs and tactical changes to try and put it right, Southgate just isn't good enough to do that, fits the England coaching/manager role well, nice inoffensive guy who won't criticize the team regardless of how they play says all the right things, and as done nothing at management level, he fits the profile, stick with nice guy Gareth, its one of the reasons Brian Clough never got the job and that is why we are still lunching out on 1966.
