Not Boro related but Everton have seen a £70m plus James McCarthy and Cenk Tosun bid for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha rejected, Sky Sports News understands. What the hell is going on.

Leicester are talking with Sampdoria about signing 24 million pound Dennis Praet, Another one that got away in our Prem campaign. Maguire, Praet, Mandi. Some right quality there that we missed out on.

@reluctantnicko: Burnley. Sounded out Palace about Scott Dann. Surprise one. More online later.

Can’t see them wanting Dann as well as Fry.

Palace are set to sign McCarthy regardless for £3m. Seems a strange story.

Maybe they have got the hint that Fry is not interested in joining them.

Woody doesn't do them on a Friday it's either a Wednesday or Thursday afternoon now 

The press conference is today at 4 I think. Not sure if they'll usually be Thursday though and its been brought forward to today with it being deadline day tomorrow.

Latest update... things moving behind the scenes... Burnley defo coming back for Fry. Nothing close incoming or wasnt at 11am.

Burnley must be getting some encouragement from somewhere. Very disappointing in my opinion.

Makes much more sense than spending £20m+ on Fry to sit on the bench behind Tarkowski and Mee

Barnsley seem to be going after Tav according to their fans. What would you accept?

Season long loan, or £5m plus add-ons if we sell.

I wouldn't sell at all. They can do one.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
