I wonder which of our young talents we'll flog to them in 2 years time when we want to bring Fry back.

Probably Nathan wood so they can kill of another CB's career

27 league games in a 46 game season means he missed 40% of their league games.

The season before, also 27 in 46.

The season before that, he only managed 17. 

He doesn't appear to be a player that you're going to get a full season out of, ever.

Just to play devils advocate in the 17/18 season he had to compete with Irvine, Larsson, Meyler, Henrikson and Jon Toral for a starting midfield spot. Larsson, Henrikson and Meyler were definitely above him in the pecking order and to a lesser extent Toral and Irvine were above him too. He was only in the match day squad 24 times that season.

For the 18/19 season he was in the Hull match day squad 42 times out of 46.

Then for the 19/20 season I believe he has had 1 injury all season. The first 18 games of this season he was in the squad (twice on the bench, 16 games starting). He then broke his metatarsal (I think).

Fair enough, I stand corrected then 🙂

I’d rather we keep Fry to be honest and move on from Gibson. It’s just too risky to be holding out for it all to come together, we did that last window. 
I do have some faith that Warnock will sort us out behind the scenes. Already brought in his analyst and he’ll be extremely frustrated with how things going so far. But what on Earth was Pulis paid to do?! 
I always thought Bausor was the boo boy and probably not deserved but from what @Lurker has said he actually *is* useless! Any movement on a possible DoF approach moving forward or Bausor getting pushed out?!

I mean it's not to say he won't get injured if we did sign him. But I don't think he's as injured as much as people think. 

From what I can tell he's only had 2 publicised injuries. A hernia whilst he was at Liverpool and a broken metatarsal at Hull this season.

Edit: And a knee injury when he was on loan at Swindon.

Gibbo expected at Norwich for talks tomorrow and Nottingham Monday both permanent signings.  As mentioned last week currently nothing on incomings Williams we couldn’t agree fee with Wigan Stewart has been to rockcliffe twice but has other options. Mass redundancies in club will be announced end of next week.

Norwich can talk to Burnley all they like. If he really only wants to come here then they're wasting their time.

Has he given up on a move to Boro then do you think?

Didn't sound like Gibson was bothered where he played, as long as he was playing, judging from his BBC Tees interview.

I think the club need to change targets.

If he's actually going to Norwich and Forest to talk to them then he is certainly exploring his options. I still don't buy that he is only willing to come here and play to the wages that we can seemingly offer. I've always thought that it's going to be Burnley or a club willing to meet their demands.

You'd probably have a hard time running that past a tax inspector with regard to Ben's wages.

    • The thing that gets me is if Swansea had sportsmanship they would of let us walk the ball in for a draw like Bielsa did a few years ago but they didn't as they are cheaters hope they aren't promoted horrible club with cocky fans who are attacking Bolasie asking for VAR 
    • Straight down the middle. He would have saved it if he'd remained his normal  statuesque self. He must go at the end of the season. Dud!
    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
