    I'm with DZ on this. An adult has stood over this child's shoulder and told them exactly what to write, then made the conscious decision to post it on social media to try and emotionally blackmail Gibson. Would a disabled 11 year old truly understand the ins and outs of this situation and even know who Gibson is?  

    It really depends on the level if interest the child has in his football club.


    My 10 year old daughter (who is not disabled granted) would be able to talk in great detail about subjects she is interested in..

    Also we don't know what disabilities George has.

    Has anyone ever seen a team in administration only sell 1 bit part player for a total of £30k, yet complain that others are causing them financial issues and will be the cause of their liquidation?

    Lawrence, Sibley, Buchanan, Bielik, Knight and Jozwiak more than cover the money they need to reach the summer. Wonder why they're not interested in selling them...

    Especially when they likely will leave in the summer if they do manage to survive that long. As they won't want to be playing league 1 football.

    I'd agree with all of this, and would add that we've had the majority of that starting line up sidelined with Covid, and Connelly hasn't played for ages. Reading would have been keen to claw back some respect after that Fulham defeat, so it was one that was all about the result.

    I wonder if anything in the front two might change for Blackburn. Neither Sporar or Connelly played badly, but on the other hand, I don't think either could say they'd made themselves undroppable.

    I'd try balogun with sporar.

    Give both Scottish giants access to the premier League and it’s tv money, coupled with their fan bases and attendances and they would be in the top 6-8 sides. That’s not to say they would win things every year but they would have more resources and attractions to signings than the likes of Southampton who are consistently members of the top flight, have a competitive squad.

    That's basically what I'm saying

    Current teams would be competing for playoffs in Championship for me. Even with money they'd struggle to attract players to Scotland. It isn't exactly a desirable place to go and live likewise Newcastle.

    Everyone wants to be in Manchester or London. I think with TV money they'd be bottom half of Prem. 

    Oh I'm not sure, Glasgow is like many cities,  has its rough parts, but there is some nice parts too. 



    I can understand why no one would want to live in Newcastle though.

    Each to their own I guess. I would add Celtic and Rangers into English football and would expect them to be top-half Championship. Even though their fans think they'd be Top 6 in England when realistically they wouldn't be.

    Their current teams may not be upto that standard, but if they were in the Prem and had their slice of that TV money then maybe they could attract better quality players with their "history" and also their large fan base. I doubt they would be Top 6 but definitely Top half and challenging for euro places maybe.

    Could mean absolutely nothing and after hearing Wilders comments on Payero today it probably does but Payero has just put see you soon amigo on his insta story presumably to a friend from back home. Just thought it was worth noting 

    The guy in the photo is Carlos Mercado, who on his insta profile has him working for HB futbol elite, which is Payeros agent.  

    So could just be saying see you later after a visit from him. Or there could be more to it. 

  8. @Youngy228you are a valuable contributer to the group, so take comfort that other ppl enjoy reading your views too. We all have these days and like others have said, take each day as it comes, and it can sometimes be all about small wins. Take care buddy.

    Agree with that @Johnmfc81 but even if Tav left for free in the summer we would not have had any losses with him to cut. He has been superb value for money regardless of any sale IMO

    I agree it wouldn't be seen as a loss financially, only it would in terms of an asset which we would have to replace, which unless it was another free transfer would of cost us something.

    Cut what losses? He cost us nothing, is a mainstay in the team and puts in a shift for us every week 🤷‍♂️

    I suppose this is where thinking of it like a business comes in, if cashing in on Tav helps with FFP going forward then replacing him with a player who is cheaper and plays at a similar level isn't that bad. Especially if it means we can continue to improve the squad elsewhere.

    Wilder has already stated he wouldn't have sent Spence on loan. Imagine he will have a good look at him in the summer.


    It's not quite how I interpreted what he said, it sounded more like he has no choice (about a recall) , whether that's because he doesn't want to be here, or whether the rumoured bad influence we can't know. Perhaps he wouldn't of loaned him out if he was here at the start, then maybe Spence may not of wanted to leave, also I don't think we would of seen the best from jones then. Jones has played his vest while at RWB IMHO.
