Obviously Gibson training with the club in close season doesn't mean much, but you'd think it would hint that the signs of a return were broadly positive at this point.

It could just hint that he's been here for most of the year so far and nothing has changed in his personal circumstances?

It will be interesting to see if the Gazette report on this. Given that there was a photo, which people have seen, of Gibson training at Boro, there is clearly a story there.

If they don't report on it, then that says a lot about whether they have to run stories past the club.

 

Is there a story there?  He's been here for months so unless the story is:

GIBSON STILL TRAINING HERE:  EXCLUSIVE!

Then really, what is the story exactly?

Oi Gibbo, if you want to use our facilities you need to sign for the club on significantly reduced terms. Otherwise get to the park.

I suspect at the very least it means Norwich aren't close to signing him. Which isn't far off what most of us would expect anyway.

Indeed, there's nothing to suggest it's more positive for us than we already understand, if we could afford to do the deal for him, it would have undoubtedly been done ages ago and until there's no chance of that happening, I'd expect Burnley don't want him around anyway.

I guess in Warnock's eyes, he's not as fussed now there might be a chance of him actually being here next season as opposed to when he didn't want him training with the first team towards the end of the season just gone, when he definitely couldn't make use of him.

That's exactly the kind of article I would expect from your lot at the Gazette.

The story is that they've deleted the photos that he was in, even though it was only in the distant background, not that he was in photos.

There's clearly more to it as they were happily publicising it in January.

I was under the impression that he wasn't training here anymore. If there's no story, why has the photo been removed? Just speculating.

You'd think the 12 point deduction and donkey manager would make Sheffield Wednesday less appealing to Murphy the second time.

This. Why delete the photo when its hardly a secret he's been training with us anyway?

If that's the story, you can guess how shocked I would be if the Gazette did report on it. If the club want something hidden, the Gazette are hardly gonna be willing to publish something that really isn't a huge shock to any of us.

Were you?  I was under the impression that nothing had changed at all with him so I just assumed he was still knocking about with us.  I'm fairly sure that people mentioned he was at Rockliffe Hall on this very forum and I would guess it's been all over social media as well?

I don't see the Gazette writing a story about the Gazette deleting a photo.  The actual story would be that Gibson is training with us, which I, incorrectly it seems, assumed that everyone already knew?  That's not really a story, to me anyway.

Not sure about the latter being on social media myself but I'm definitely with you on this one, I don't know why those circumstances would have changed when the circumstances surrounding his future haven't changed. He's still not wanted by Burnley and we're still happy to give him a temporary home if unable to provide a permanent one.

Ah right, I assumed that if it was on here then it would be on twitter and facebook etc as well.

    • I’ll be paying the cash for this. I should’ve just bought the bloody season pass....   either way, I can’t see whatmore and roberts both starting, but I’m all for this being a Roberts game. I reckon we will be pressing high up the pitch, so having him on the ball in the final third would be perfect. Aside from that, both saville and McNair were visibly struggling towards the end of the last game, I reckon there might be some rested legs....
    • If we can offload someone then fine, I'm not sure how likely it is though.  Assombalonga will be on too much money I'd have thought and why pay any kind of transfer fee for a player you can get on a free transfer 6 months down the line.
    • We should be trying to sell Assombalonga in January, he's not contributing anywhere near enough to be indispensable and getting something for him is better than nothing. He's also not contributing anywhere near enough to be worth a new contract, at least in my opinion. 
    • Would make more sense to wait until the summer I think?
    • If Britt and Fletcher don't sign new contracts soon I would guess Warnock will move heaven and earth to get a new striker. I know they're not great but they're decent enough and to lose for nothing would be terrible.
