Apparently it’s there and we don’t need to sell to buy.... Gibson must have got 3 numbers on last nights lottery.

£85 must go a long way these days in football 😲

It's the type of signing Gibson usually finds money for, regardless of whether he's really needed or not.

I am abit concerned that they is no winger's linked apart from Jack Clarke as that's where we need must sign someone that is half decent so teams are abit fearful playing us!

Doesn't Maddison play from wide?

Maybe but he doesn't really look like the typical winger the type who can run the length of the pitch and whip a cross in

I'm not sure many of those players exist anymore to be honest. 

The modern wide player is more likely to cut inside and interchange with other players.

Pretty much, full backs are supposed to do that job.

Been told we want 10 for Randolph... dont see us offering terms for Ayala Howson Gestede... just because I dont think we can afford them. Clayton free to go as well I believe

Clayton definitely looking for a move and free to leave. Agent has been talking to a few clubs

I say this because Boro have only really acheived success when had a good winger. As when we promoted had Adomar, reached the playoffs with Traore and even in the golden area had the English international Downing. All these players ran the length of the pitch and whipped crosses in.

His time has run its course here, and he's lost a lot of popularity, not sure it's a huge loss if he goes and he's still young enough to have some value.

Even adomah was used a lot on the left cutting in.

He is right footed so that would make sense

I meant he wasn’t always played as a ‘traditional winger’

    • I think Hugill was all too often on the ground and I couldn't stand that in a big physical lad, more-so than the regular diving player... but I also think he'd have scored more goals under Woodgate than he did Pulis. Though you could probably apply that to a lot of strikers.
    • I disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
    • Played as a striker he was a immense. A proper poacher and could shoot from distance too.
