I would love to know what you do in the community to feel you have a moral highground over Steve Gibson?

I can't speak for RealSlimShadey but I am a super nice person to one and all.

As you say though, thats football. If we dont pay wages, we dont compete and the club shrinks further in terms of the jobs that can be offered to the community. I would love to see a big change in how football clubs are ran but it seems like its a long way off in this country, especially in the top two divisions. 

Arsenal made 55 members of staff reduantant whilst having 100 million pound player wage bill

To be fair, Arsenal are owned by a *** though.

I completely agree. As I say, nuance is important - perhaps an internet forum isn't the best medium to always get that nuance across. The difficulty of nuance is especially apparent with a figure like Gibson who, in my opinion, has a complex relationship with the Teesside community (which is inevitable given how significant he has been here for well over three decades).

I think @ErimusFootball's recent article on Gibson is a really good example of capturing the nuance of Gibson from a footballing perspective. 

Is nuance your 'word of the day' by any chance? 🤔

I’ve seen some people mentioning a £3mill fee, seems pricey for someone who’s only done it in the Scottish championship (although tbf he was prolific there)

Hes scored a shedload, albeit in a fairly poor division.

Shame its been posted in a private group. Can someone impersonate a Dundee fan and have a look? 👀

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
