Gibson did want to leave. It’s a complicated situation. Not all the Gibson’s get on.  Made the situation tricky.

Gibson wanted to leave when West Brom put 25m bid in for him when we got relegated purely for international purposes but uncle Steve said no hence the ‘fall out’ and second time round it was sanctioned by Steve because it suited.

Gibson’s agent was touting him around for weeks before the story broke. No problem with that as he wanted to stay in the Prem. The problem was that he chose the wrong club he could have gone to Southampton where he would have been much better off but chose Burnley. I did hear that the decision was influenced by the fees his agent wanted. 

Yeah and the fact dyche told him if he kept his head down and done well Burnley wouldn’t stand in his way if a big move came off

I don't know why we'd entertain Gibson at all to be honest why would we take our old highest earner back for a year with a hefty loan fee? Illogical to me we got good money for him got his wages off the books wished him luck and had a 20 year old Dael Fry ready to grab his spot we're 12 months on Fry's our best CB captain Friends apparently a CB for the left side we probably could do with a left footed LCB in the mix Shotton just looks so uncomfortable shaping passes on his right foot at LCB.

Friend could do what the Bournemouth fullbacks did when they were getting on and claim a CB spot he's more feasible than Shotton is. If we get a CB on loan I imagine it would be a PL young lad not a 50k a week Burnley defender on a 7 figure loan fee.

If you reckon you have a story, how about telling it?

I'm quite intrigued by who this CM might be.  Perhaps defensive competition for Clayton? Or maybe Saville's replacement?

The fallout was between bens dad and Steve. There were issues to do with property and money. Ben didn’t want to get involved in the mess. Loved boro. Wanted to be in premier league. Left it up to Steve to decide.

My understanding is that Gibbo and his brother fell out after Steve blocked Ben leaving. He wanted him to stay for a season, which he did and after that he was off to the highest bidder. Whether or not there is any residue I have no idea but I was also led to believe that Ben's dad "retired" from Bulkhaul over it.

Big part of it. There was money issues between the two brothers also - basically Ben didn’t want his move to lose his family the money connection to Steve

Shame, I used to love the Gibson Brothers. Cuba was a disco classic.

    • 1.       Did Sunday’s game make you wish you’d never got into football in the first place? No, but it was the lowest I've felt after a game for a long time, probably compounded by lockdown etc  2.       Since we lost the last game, should we be expecting to win this one? Yes, NW will have them firing and I think we'll see a performance similar to the Forest game. 3.       Can you name eleven fit Boro players and put them into some semblance of a formation? 3-4-3 Bettinelli Mcnair Wood Bola Spence Howson Saville Coulson Roberts Watmore Akpom 4.       If we could resign one Boro player from the last ten years, who would it be, and why? If we could resign someone at the same age/condition we signed them initially then i'd say Leadbitter. I think he'd thrive under Warnock and bring some much needed leadership. If it's someone who's still in the game then it would have to be Traore. 5.       Have you been in an accident in the last five years that wasn’t your fault? No.
    • 1. No, but it completely ruined the match for me and I'm still angry now. 2. It's a game we absolutely should be winning, but then so was Birmingham, Sheffield Wednesday etc... 3. Bit worried about Wood likely starting after his performance yesterday, but I expect he'll be better prepared this time. 4. Traore, he'd tear this league apart. 5. I actually don't think I have!
    • It seems most January windows end with Gibson having a call to make on what he wants to do. I hope we have a Jordon Rhodes/Ramirez week rather than  a Gestede week.
    • I think I will still be in shock and disbelief about the last game till after this game, regardless of whether we win or lose. 
    • 1: No, but I was close to vomiting. 2: Yes 3: Bets, Hows, Wood, McNair, Bola -- Morsy, Saville, Watmore, Roberts, Britt, Chuba 4: Bamford - He is what we need at the moment .. Someone who can finish and make it look clever at the same time. 5: No accidents
