Yeah I read that and the rest of the thread.  I couldn't work out what the 1 appearance would be in regards to because he's played 71 league games and 76 games in total but then I looked at it and it could be for 75 appearances if you don't include play off games, but that would seem odd to me.  It could be for 70 Championship starts as he's started 69 to date with 2 sub appearances.  Other than that I don't really see what the clause could be for, that's if it actually exists.

Might be based on a percentage of games he’s been available for selection for. Or something obscure like that.

I suspect that if we are trying to sell him it's for the same reasons we were trying to sell him in the summer - that he's on decent money, isn't all that good and will soon be out of contract.

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. 

And Terry Cochrane in a Boro team that should have won something 

Wingers are an exciting part of any game, would love to see us bring two in, doesn't look likely

Yeah, Pulis didn't want him apparently.

Wasn’t the word that he wanted too much money. That aside I’m sure it was more appealing to move to the French top league than go to a mid table championship club.

I'm sure that the appearances only includes starts because we kept putting downing on the sub bench didnt we?

EXCLUSIVE: Derisory Middlesbrough midfielder bid laughed off

Probably a dummy offer they knew would get rejected just so it looked like they were trying, to appease the fans. Also see the Gazette PR machine churning out recycled Ayala articles today. Must be kicking rocks in the office

There seems to be a lot of momentum building regarding randolph to west ham being nearly done, both on here and social media generally. Do any of the ITK posters on here received information about likely fee for him as general consensus seems to be that his departure is all but done?

The Peterborough chairman has in the past been complimentary about our club on more than one occasion so. Said we are a great club to deal with. Therefore good to see we not made an insulting offer as Maddison is a player i would like here.

Good point and I'd completely forgotten about that like an idiot 🤦‍♂️

74 total starts he is on so that's probably it.  I should have spotted that.

That then begs the question why is he not on the bench at the very least?

My understanding is that Randolph does not want to go back to West Ham as he wasn’t happy with his lot there. That came from his Dad.

Presumably because he is actually injured?  I imagine the issue would be not wanting him to start another game when he is fit so the clause isn't triggered.  They may have been willing to do it earlier in the season but now he's out for however long and is also out of contract then would they want to add another expense?  That's all assuming it's true of course.

Fathers and Sons though, it can be a tricky thing.  Look at me and Denzel.

    • It's a shame there's no sign of someone coming in before Rotherham. Warnock seemed confident of that and keen for it to happen. For me, being the 7th best team in the league this season is OK based on the last few seasons. It's a shame if we cannot push on this season but once again more high wages will be gone in the summer.  I hope either Warnock stays or Gibson goes for someone like Paul Cook. He's done great with teams so far and I would be happy to trust him with this squad and any cash Gibson can give him. I do think if we don't go up the likes of Paddy, Fry, Tav and Dijksteel may attract interest. I wonder if we sold one we could keep hold of the others. Hopefully we don't have to sell them all.  Next season even more of the kids could be ready which is quite exciting really. Especially as we may actually get to see them in person. Fingers crossed for this week and the rest of the season. Hopefully Gibson can work out how to splash a bit of cash.
    • Speaking last week with my mate who gave me the Watmore info he said that Boro are looking to do 3 in 3 out. Britt, Roberts and Wood were the three out  (Wood on loan). other than maybe Wood I don’t think much will have changed.  
    • I genuinely hope you are right and that I am wrong. He originally had a hamstring injury after 4 games for us and just as he was getting close to returning he then suffered a front thigh injury in training which I think required surgery putting him out for at least an additional 10 to 12 weeks which would put his return at around mid to late Feb if his rehab goes to plan. Added to his previous serious long lay off before coming here and it doesn't fill me with optimism. Like I said I hope you are right and my pessimism is without foundation.
    • I think we would need to see a departure or two for any signs of incomings but you never know
    • Quite simply a must win game with due respect to Rotherham not getting 3 points against them will put a stop to any real hope of progress towards top 6plus we need to stop the home form rot
