You may be right, although I don't think Spence was overly impressive when he played him there in the lockdown matches.

It's interesting that we don't seem to be linked with many wingers, maybe that it a sign that he's thinking about playing wing backs. Thinking about it he talks about adding to the spine/core.

Dijksteel/spence RWB   Johnson/New Signing LWB? 

and fry hall and thee other new cb we are chasing. seem to be names popping up still. deffo could be 3cb and wingbacks hes looking at.

Traore was good for us for 6 months at most in all fairness

Probably true, but he was a joy to watch most times he played for 3 years whereas Johnson was a joy to watch how many times?

Forest, Stoke, Wednesday and Derby also in for Murphy so it’ll probably be another window when we get turned down by him then.

Just a fun thing to remember as Murphy crops up again, that was the Gazette in that Pulis January window who pushed Murphy out there as a main target and we were pretty confident back then.

No harm in trying but that Murphy's turned us down I think it's 3 times now?

Josh I think we put a couple of bids in to Norwich under Monk I think it was?

Warnock has in his favour he convinced his twin to go to Cardiff and that might be an edge but hopefully unlike the Pulis days this is just us putting an attempt in whilst beinb wide eyed about other targets in the meantime.

You make a really great point here, mate.  You don't play well by picking talented players 🙃

You get my point, troll 😏

Experience instead of experiments 💪

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.

I'm not sure he's meant to be training, honestly.

It weird that they would hide the photo after he was very obviously training with us last season.

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.

I think many would disagree with that, he was like a headless chicken who in the main was frustrating and didn't impact games

Who were the experiments, like?

Just pick your best players in your best team.  Most of the other stuff is *** at the end of the day.
