Just had it pointed out that Spence doesn't appear to be on the trip to Cornwall, he doesn't seem to be in the team pic by the plane, unless he's hiding behind someone else.

Nevermind, he's just hiding behind Dijksteel, the cheeky scamp!

Could we sign someone please ... I have cravings ... Either that or just bored

I'm hoping we get another one of them 3am tweets from some South American journalist saying the boro have agreed a deal for an outstanding prospect this week!

I don't think it does amount to the same thing though.

If Gibson was willing to spend £2m on a foreign gem, but only willing to spend £1m on a lower league player, that doesn't meant Gibson is forcing players on a manager.

It just means he's more willing to spend on certain players.

Every single owner at every single club is driving transfers to that extent.

If Warnock didn't want Payero, I'm sure we wouldn't sign him.

I'd sooner spend more on a steak than a pizza, it doesn't mean I'm forcing my partner to get steak.

Your relationship with your partner is completely different to Gibson's with Warnock.  That is an employer/employee relationship, I'm assuming that yours isn't? 😯😉

I don't think forcing is the right word to use anyway, and I don't believe that I used it.  I said it was Gibson driving a transfer, the word I should have used is influencing.  If you are prepared to spend more on one set of players than on another set of players, you are trying to incentivise the manager choosing players from the group that you prefer.  'It just means he's more willing to spend on certain players' - yeah, the players he would prefer that we sign.  That's the point I'm making.  We've seen it before so it seems odd that people are pushing back on the idea that he/we would do this?  We know we've done it recently, why wouldn't we do it again?

It will be interesting to see what the powers that be do. Especially regarding GK’s. One positive test could place 4 keepers and coach(es) in isolation. 
 

that could have an impact on 3 games if they do the full 10 days.

I don't think anyone actually wants him and the club are just desperately touting him about.

There's always going to be conjecture, we're not working with the man. Why would you expect the average fan to deliver a view, positive or negative, on Gibson without conjecture?

Not people to make their own conclusions or hear something from an anonymous source then state as fact

Deliver a view using facts, it's not hard

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
