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

hardly a utility player mate. He's barely got one good position nowadays, let alone multiple.

Was gonna say, he can't even play another role from his usual in central midfield, never mind another position entirely.

at this moment in time I would class McNair as our most saleable asset, not our most wanted sale but the one player I can see us getting an offer for who has no ties to the area and would bring in some funds.

McNair out pays for Roberts, i'd reluctantly get on board with that.

If Roberts isn't injury prone I'd jump at that. 

Creatively Paddy gives us nothing -  solid Championship players are easy to come by. 

Roberts has that little extra, star quality, that can often change a game on it's own. He's already won us 2 penalties since joining, if I remember rightly that's already twice as many as we've had since the start of the season.

Can’t see a Prem team coming in for McNair. And I can’t see a team paying over 6 million for him. He’s not been that good. 

?! he's probably our player of the season up to this point?! For the first few months of the season he was basically the only player likely to create something offensively for us.

I'd have to disagree with both parts of that statement. Paddy has been one of the few players running through walls for us this season, and some of his performances have been immense. Though I agree his penalty taking needs work!

I think most Championship managers would welcome McNair straight into their matchday 18s, and I think it would be difficult to replace his versatility and commitment. And while I agree he's not a Roberts or Ramirez-style onto-the-attack playmaker, I think he's one of the most important players in our youthful and inexperienced squad. I wouldn't let him go unless someone makes us an offer we can't refuse.

That’s not saying much though. I don’t think he has increased his value here.

Have any of our recent signings increased in value since they joined us?

Either way, it doesn't change Paddy's importance to our paper-thin and very youthful squad.

brum exposed our lack of real defenders last night. there goal was text book for them. get the only cb out wide against their best wide man. put one to the back post for their target man up against a 5ft 9in cm playing in defence. jukes easiest goal of the season.

if ayala was on the pitch with gibbo and fry, they wouldnt have had a sniff all game.

i was watching ry on the left and seen how uneasy he is using his left foot. he often turned back to his right foot when a nice ball down the line was on. its not good having him there. johnson was like the invisible man to. cant remember him being near fry all night. coulson will be back next game thankfully. hopefully with gibbo left side.

    • West Brom are about to appoint Valerian Ismael from Barnsley as their manager. I'd say that could potentially be a good appointment.
    • Kind of ironic that Boro then ended up in a similar situation with Karanka...though I'm guessing he was nowhere near as bad as Magath.  
    • Be proud and be strong. It does hurt but never forget that he's a dad and you're a grandad. Always say her name and never ever forget her. You never will. I am a proud dad of 4 beautiful children even if one is an angel. Be strong and remember that people around will always care. Much love and support.  Trekkers xxxxxxx
    • Really poignant for me this.  My eldest son's partner had to give birth to their first child yesterday even though she had passed away in the womb on friday.   Tragic and devastating for us all but the way in which he has handled himself in the last few days is incredible.   So whilst it hurts like hell, a very proud father.  
    • I'm surprised that Gestede has actually managed 178 games in his career so I just checked and according to Wiki he has managed 284 games over his entire career which for a 32 year old isn't many. Smith at three years younger has played 410 games so at least he may be available for selection instead of sending in a sick note. They both seem to have a 1:4 ratio which isn't great but much more useful if fit and available and that's before we consider the respective costs involved for fees and wages.
