Must have someone lined up, right? Only three CB's if he goes. Not that I think he's a CB mind.

4 technically if Wood hangs around - Friend, Fry, Ayala, Wood.

So potentially;

Clayton to Huddersfield (If Mooy is sold)

Shotton to Wigan

Saville to QPR

Fry to Burnley

Britt to Palace

Obvisouly I'd rather the top 3 happened.

Do think it would be a bit of a risk getting rid of Clayton. Which is a bit of a 180 on my part as I was happy for him to go. But he seems to have an important role in terms of the sitting role in the midfield 3. Still has limitations in that role though. But at this late stage could we get a good replacement.

Where is this Shotton link? There’s nothing on Twitter.

Did it mention a price.

I imagine we'll have to pay them a fair whack to take him..

I wouldn’t be happy with Clayton leaving.

And money in the bank for Boro, but sadly by the time they found players willing to come, agents Gibson will deal with and fees agreed, We ran out of time our squad was thinner our bank balance no bigger as fees payed over multiple years and the club release a statement saying “ It is what it is”

The above all in jest but horribly there just enough probability there to make you really hope it doesn’t happen.

I'm not sure if it's better or worse that the window shuts at 5pm instead of 11pm/midnight 

You can get a pint easier at 5pm than at 11pm/midnight

The Fa having to think about those poor lonely sky reporters needing a post prattle drink. ?

Wouldn't be against Shotton leaving, but it leaves us bare at the back, unless Friend is backup?

Certainly can't afford to lose Fry now. 

Ayala/Friend/Fry/Wood...could do with an extra CB to be honest.

We'd be stronger playing just one CB, than playing Shotton at all

    • 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.
