Have to offer a new contract before January and if not then unfortunately we need to move him on. Can’t afford to lose a £10m+ player for nothing in a year 

lmfao Randolph isn't a £10m+ player!

Unless he somehow goes to a PL team we'd be lucky to get anywhere near that.

Best keeper in the league, in his prime, already has Prem experience, international keeper. I'd say he is about 8 million. Just look at the sums some of the Championships best players are sold at.

Not gonna argue with any of that, but this is Boro we're talking about. Selling players for what they're worth isn't our strong point.

Really? I think we've done fairly well regarding sales in recent times. Our problem is recruiting.

I think we are more switched on in obtaining a decent resale value, it's definitely the incoming signings that are the problem.

"Derby County and Middlesbrough are plotting to sign Jack Clarke in January as Leeds United face up to losing their academy product for good, Football Insider has learned.

The 19-year-old’s future is up in the air ahead of next month’s transfer window as he’s been stuck on the fringes of his loan club all season."

Woodgate basically confirmed there's truth in the Randolph rumours this morning.

Truth that there's interest in him or truth that he's likely going?

Truth in the interest, but also didn't deny that he might be off.

"Linked, that's all it is. I’ll let you know when we’ve got some news on that. At the minute we're not in January."

It's inference on my part, but that's how it comes across.

Yeah, sounds like he expects at least some concrete interest in him.

Jack Clarke loan and Marcus Maddison for 2.6m would deffo be a step in the right direction, even if we have to lose Randolph to West Ham

Something about Maddison doesn't sit right with me.  He's an odd one.

Isn't Maddison out of contract in the summer. No club has matched his release clause for years so you'd think there is something about him that clubs don't like. You can't argue against his stats though.

It does seem like Maddison has been discussed here for a couple of years, has put up great numbers in league one for years and yet no Championship team has ever shown any concrete interest to even activate the release clause.

    • The Irish health department released this graph today showing the effects of social distancing and lockdown. It's interesting as (if accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise) Ireland should be looking at about 15000 cases today but we are currently just shy of 3000 cases. Looks like we are flattening the curve here before we've hit critical saturation of the hospitals.       
    • A new study by from Imperial College London estimates that up to 2.7% of the UK population may have been infected so far - that's about 1.8m people if it's correct.  It's a statistical model though so you have to keep that in mind.  Also says that between 20,000 and 120,000 lives might have been saved across the 11 European countries they were looking at thanks to the measures put in place so far 👍
    • A quick addition to this interesting question, probably for the older supporters in part 1, but everyone who has travelled to support in part 2. part 1 when answering the original question I found that our time at the Riverside has been filled with great goals but when thinking about it I found that the goals that made me most exhilarated and hyper in my celebrations nearly all came at Ayresome Park, now I’m old enough to have been an active supporter over the 2 grounds but I do believe the sheer joy and communal togetherness of a Boro goal at Ayresome beats that at the Riverside. part 2 I also chose a goal scored away from home too, and I was wondering if anyone felt that goals scored at home or away brought out different feelings of joy and excitement. For me, I’ve been on many a thankless away trip but there is something genuinely special when you score away from home, whether it be a Bernie Tap in or a Karambeu missile like he did at Valley Parade, there all special but an away goal is like a good pint that comes with a chaser imo. You can never count on them but when they come everyone of them is welcome.
