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'm simply going by the fact that it doesn't seem to mentioned anywhere that they haven't been paid.  The Charlton forums I looked at haven't mentioned it and generally you'd expect to see it there.  It's not like that kind of thing stays secret for very long, and with all of the grief he's getting, it would be reasonable to assume that if he wasn't being paid, that he'd say so to defend himself.  All he's said is that the decision has been a really difficult one for him to make but that his fear of injury is such that he doesn't want to play, and that he knows he'll be seen by some as being greedy.  It's also perhaps worth pointing out that he was missing for two months earlier in the season after being injured playing for Montserrat and I assume he still received his Charlton wages then as well.  All in all, he'll have played about 4 months for Charlton this season but been paid for all 12 months, unless they refuse to pay him this month, which they should.
    • Apart from some unfounded speculation on here I have seen nothing to suggest he hasn’t been paid. Do you know that he hasn’t been paid? If he hasn’t, then I’m surprised he hasn’t just said so, instead of saying he can understand if people think he is a money grabbing player with no loyalty, but hopes that people will forgive him for only thinking about himself.  There is nothing to suggest he hasn’t been happy taking his pay during the last few months without lifting a finger and now he can only think about himself.

    • Where is the evidence to prove he has or hasn't getting paid? I haven't personally seen it yet.
    • Aye, it does put it all into perspective when you say it like that 😰
