@Lurker, @diggerlad07 @Smoggydownsouth and all the other ITK posters. Thank you for all the ITK info you guys share. Think i speak for everyone when i say it is much appreciated. Without it the l

Roberts is done. As someone has said, Ayala is on £25k a week. Don’t know what he’s been offered but I can’t believe it would be £5k. Randolph is gone, assume it’s West Ham.    5 more

5.2mil that said we still owe 1.2 so will be 4 in total

Decent. Could have been better but with no bidding war it’s still a decent fee and a high earner off the books. Loved him. Best keeper since Schwarzer. Hope it allows us to move forward.

He's injured

Makes more sense, but he's been injured quite a few times there without ever playing a game.

He's only made one appearance in the league in 2 years at Burnley.

It depends if any other club comes in for Gibson and offer's to pay more wages. However if no club does at the end of the window the Boro should get him as he's not even making the Burnley bench so they'll defiently want him to go somewhere to play and build up abit of interest to hopefully sell in the summer.

He only hasn't been on the bench due to injury, Dyche was saying in the press this week

That's what Dyche was saying in the press, he's been really unlucky but it's all part and parcel of it not working out for him there.

Horrific turn of events for the lad. Looked a Prem quality defender when playing for us there. Really thought he’d kick on at burnley and earn a bigger move.

There used to user on here who has not posted in a while called KM. Every transfer window he would search the internet high and wide to bring us latest boro transfer goss.

You @BoroYorkie & @BoroJake are both doing a great job of taking his place. Good work pair of you. Much appreciated. 

It doesn’t matter who you loan the player from you are allowed 4 loan players, but, in some instances you can only play two of them at the same time!

Ben Gibson isn't even making the bench in a cup match against Peterborough, it's sad how hugely the move to Burnley has derailed his career.

Might not want to cup-tie him

He's injured apparently and I think the day has passed when clubs were concerned about buying cup-tied players. 

Ik I sent that before I read the rest of the messages and was just thinking of any old reason

Good deal imo. Suppose Pears remains no.1 now. Mejias was brought in as a number 2 so if we get desperate we recall Hemming, whom I have never seen play so not sure of his ability.

I think I remember reading on here in the summer that JW might get up to  50% of sales so up to £2m in the pot for a permanent buy. 

We still need a CB and left sided forward then I would imagine replacing like for like for any sales we make, though we still have plenty of numbers at CM and I think JW rates Liddle highly so he might get his chance.

Or enough to pay for gibbo on loan?

I think I might be in the minority, but think we need to add some permanent transfers in to start building the numbers up for next season rather than on wages for players from other clubs.

    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view  
    • Maybe if he was Slovenian and not from our academy he'd be the best thing since sliced bread 🤷
