It’ll be Clayton, his agents been talking around for a while now 

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.

let's not forget Johnson and Shotton could be classed as older utility players

yah but originally it was said as a midfield/utility player which would rule those two out.

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

He'll have to settle down in Redcar or Saltburn, none of the north of the Tees nonsense.

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.

    • I was commenting on the fact someone has said he's not stuck to his guns with a 4-3-3 throughout the season when plenty of people were also very early on criticising him for not changing from it. That's where I'm saying he can't win. Roberts came in early, we got it tied up ASAP, it's clear he was a significant part of our plans for the rest of this season and his performances on the pitch showed that. No, his absence doesn't excuse the rest of the team or the tactics but it has hit our plans hard clearly, we don't have another player like him at the club and haven't had one like that since Ramirez left. I've no idea why you think he isn't being careful with Roberts just because Friend forced himself back quickly at a time when we were desperate for players. Friend got himself injured again and said himself in his post-match interview against Luton that he held some responsibility for declaring himself fit. It's not like Friend came back as soon as he was fit to play again recently, nor Shotton. They were in U23 games for a week or so before they were declared fit for the first team. Friend went back into the team against Luton but then Fry had to drop out too so it was gonna be him, Shotton or McNair.
    • Yes, but why has he done two interviews so close together and said such different things? That is what does not make sense to me.
    • Rumours Woodgate has been sacked. Any truth in it?
    • No statements anywhere. I think people might be believing what they want to hear. I would take it with a very big pinch of salt unless something leaks out via a more reliable channel. 
    • He obviously gave the interview and the quotes within it.
