Ive only seen us on tele and highlights....when would you say we abandoned the high press? For me, it worked vs Luton and we were unlucky not to win and then every time ive seen us we barely pressed as a unit. 

I never personally saw a press, just enthusiastic running about.

Nice one I’ll have a serious word with his mother. Maybe she was winding me up?

How do you know his mother? 

Is there a chance of you becoming Randolp's step dad? 😛 😄

Jelle Vossen 🙄🤦‍♂️

He's undoubtedly just as useful/if not better than what we already have. Worked his absolute socks off every game for 90 minutes and definitely had a bit of quality about him. Highly doubt we will sign him anyway but its daft to say you wouldn't take him in our current situation.

Agree Alex I loved his work rate when he was with us. It could inspire the young players to be the same

I didn't actually realise how little football Randolph has played at most of his clubs, comparatively speaking.

He only needs 5 more league matches with Middlesbrough to overtake his highest league appearances with Motherwell, 24 total appearances off them.

It's looking doubtful he'll reach that milestone now, which is a shame.

I don't think Vossen has been good for a few years now and that's in a completely awful Belgian league.

Vossen was quality but we've moved on he's 30 now so be coming here to retire and Boro need to stop becoming a retirement home

Vossen was great, a bit unlucky while he was here but likely to not be as good now as then. 

Also I doubt we would even be looking at him because he's not from the North east or even British. Seems we don't look abroad for bargains anymore.

Those saying Vossen wont be as good as he was when he was here/he 30 now/he struggled in a poor league etc are making valid points but the point @alexutb has made still trumps them all imo in that even if his form has declined he would still be good enough for our current squad. If there a sensible deal to be done then i would defo have him here.

    • Coulson’s lack of playing time has been mentioned once or twice. Sounds as though Warnock felt he needed a kick up the proverbial:- Extracts from Gazette interview with NW Neil Warnock says the penny has dropped for Hayden Coulson, with the wing-back now showing the Middlesbrough manager what he's capable of. Coulson hasn't featured much because he hasn't impressed in training, is the honest assessment of Warnock. But in the last fortnight that's changed. He's got to be better than what he was in pre-season. It's my fault as well, I played him right wing-back against Barnsey and he had a nightmare, that was my fault. "But he's not been good in training. But the last two weeks all of a sudden something has dropped and he's been fantastic."
    • What's happening with Traore at Wolves?  Doesn't seem to be getting in the side?
    • there is the risk that focussing on the u23 league, prevents them going out on loan to develop in a real competitve environment
    • RIP Nobby. One of the greats. Who can ever forget that toothless smile😁
    • I watched him play. I enjoyed the 70,s. Boom what a guy, Platt and Spraggon but one can’t forget seeing Graeme Souness and Mills. In the 70,s we had some great players and it’s unfair not to name all them so will leave it there., RIP NOBBY......
