I totally agree with you, we have no idea if Gibson is up to the job he’s not played for 2 years and clearly wasn’t motivated enough to get anywhere near the Burnley team, if he wasn’t SG’s nephew, there is no way that we would be signing a player with that sort of track record.
I’d rather hold on to Fry and bring Nathan Wood through.
We have no idea what kind of player Gibson is anymore considering he hasn't played football for two years going into next season and you can gurantee that he will be on much bigger wages than Fry. And I'm still not totally convinced on Moukoudi, certainly not enough to brand him a better player than Fry or with more potential. I agree that if Gibson is as good as when he left us and Moukoudi can develop even further then yeah it sounds like smart business.
If it somehow panned out like this:
Sell fry at 20 mil
Buy Gibson for 5 and Moukoudi for 3
It would be shrewed business on paper and would allow further strengthening elsewhere. But Gibson is sounding like an expensive gamble.
