Why would we get rid of one high earner to bring back another one?

I think those itk on here have said the loan will not cost as much as many would assume.

Exactly as I expected.

His story is absolutely nothing, they peddled the exact same line in the summer.

£10m? When we are already short at CB? Pull the other one. Rinse them if they are serious, cant afford to lose our only fit CB, no matter what the price. I'd be asking 15m plus Gibbo plus a large sell on fee. 

If it's a player we cant afford to lose, we shouldn't be giving him away for market value. We would need to replace him plus cover the wages of the new CB plus we probably need another defender on top anyway

Fry was the only player on our team that could actually consistently win a header vs Fulham and he's our only fit CB he's also worth more than the 10 million Dyche values him at I just can't believe after they wasted oxygen on this in August he's back again for Dael.

Fry's better than Webster and Webster left a middling Championship club for 20 million we are absolutely mad to not go from that baseline if we even entertain Dyche with this.

Don't want him back at any price. He'll be Steve Gibson's spy and  conduit to interfere with the team.

Such an easy story to recycle every window, would be surprised if it’s got any truth to it

i do find it amusing that less than 5 months ago that the general consensus on this board was not a penny less than £20m for Fry. I believe the bench mark we used was the fee Brighton paid for Bristol Citys Webster. However fast forward just 5 months and some of our fans are now happy to take half of that (some would probably take less than half).

Dael Fry certainly has not set the standards he previously set but there are a number of factors contributing towards that. However, in the last few weeks his performances have improved and i for one hope he stays and continues to improve. And we then sell him for a fee we all felt his ability and performances merited. 

I certainly would not be giving up on him. I talked in an earlier post about showing the younger members of our team some patience during they development. Fry falls in to that category. He is 22 and it is rare you see a complete defender, especially a centre half, at the age of 22. 

Lets be patient with him whilst he plays his way out of this sticky patch and then sell him for a fee his ability merits eh.

Very arguable, and I dare say it would be mainly boro fans that would have that view. I personally don’t rate Fry that much though.

You know I had a feeling fry could be moving on, with what we know off here about Gibson, the pretty strong links to Reece oxford on a permanent move made no sense, specially with woodgates desire for a back 4.

In what world is Fry better than Webster? Webster was probably the standout CB in the championship last season, Fry hasn't even been the standout CB in Middlesbrough

    • I don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
