I reckon Ben would just cover the £30k difference between what we can pay - like Gaston did.

Could SG just give him a really generous christmas / birthday present that coincidentally covers that exact amount? 😛

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

@Lurker, @diggerlad07 @Smoggydownsouth and all the other ITK posters. Thank you for all the ITK info you guys share. Think i speak for everyone when i say it is much appreciated. Without it the l

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

Don’t think Woodgate coming out and saying Fry is only going for £30m was the smartest decision. Personally wouldn’t blame Burnley if they came back with pay all his wages or it’s not happening

Guesswork journalism 😂

I don't think they've just made it up; he is recorded on payroll sites at 40k so I would guess that's where journos are taking it from.

Out of our current team the only players I can see generating serious interest that would fit the ‘Everyone has a price’ line would be, Paddy, Britt, Fry, Tav and Spence. Personally wouldn’t want any to leave and I’m surprised so many people would be happy to see Paddy sold. I think he’s our best midfielder and will improve us massively when he’s moved back there.  
 If pushed I’d rather see Britt leave over the others but I’d very much like to see a Fletch, Britt, Roberts front 3

Players I'd accept us selling this window without a replacement: Clayton and Gestede

Players I'd accept us selling with a replacement: Assombalonga, Johnson and Shotton

I'd keep everyone else because our squad is very thin as is and we're heavily reliant on academy players plugging the gaps now.

A lot of people are guessing the same wage then, as I've been told that by a credible source and as mentioned it's on several credible sports finance websites. Prem wages are generally easier to access to, so I don't see a reason to doubt the credibility

If all aspects of the contract were being achieved then yes that would be correct as it stands they are not

Wont be Howson he joined us as he wanted to move back to Yorkshire with his young family.

That’s good then, he is the only older midfield utility man I can think of, unless you class Clayton as a utility man, or McNair as older. Which neither of them are.

do not expect Fry to be amongst the first to leave ...more like to be midfield/utility player on more money and somewhat older

McNair is somewhat older than Fry and probably the one player in the squad I'd think could be outright classed as a utility player by anyone, he's been that for most his career so far. This absolutely sounds like McNair.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
