Don't see us paying a million quid for him if he's free in 6 months.

The trouble with out of contract players is you could be competing with many other teams for the player and it usually comes down to who offers him the best deal.

I really hope we can get Ben Gibson back here for the long term. He has wasted 18 months of his career at Burnley so I'm imagining he's desperate to leave Burnley as soon as possible. Hopefully he's in a position where he just wants to come back here and have a settled career here where he knows he's going to be a key player for the rest of his career. However, he's probably going to have to take a significant wage cut and we're going to have to find serious funds from selling another player. I'm imagining a lot will also depend upon whether Burnley can get another CB in.

Have the ITK guys got any further information on the Ben Gibson situation?.

sorry not much good news!

Gibson obviously people have heard otherwise but he still hasn't had any contact with us.

nketiah joining bristol city

Britt still not guaranteed to stay however no one has got even close to valuation.

Spence still a bit of a standstill agent wants more than what we are offering quite a few clubs sniffing around tomorrow and Friday big day on this front.

This is typical Spence gets a run and his agent is hanging us out to dry.

I'd be surprised if there hadn't been any contact with Gibson even if it's just an uncle having a chat with his nephew or whatever.

It’s just his agent doing his job. If we only have him relatively small contract and he is going to continue being a first team fixture then obviously he wants to paid accordingly. I don’t doubt that it will be solved

    • 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.
