Yep just seen that. Replaced by that Keith Long. Might find out after the game.

He's such an irrelevance to Burnley that I can't imagine the journalists would think to ask specifically. 

Unless Dyche mentions it in a general transfer question.

I don't think we will accept, but even if we did, I think Fry would reject it. Why would he go there to be back up? He's seen from Gibbo what that does to your career. 

He might as well stick with us and play for the next 12 months and get experience, then see who is interested

I actually can't see it not happening now like. Woodgate diddnt deny it at. And he's usually quick to play stuff down.

time will tell,personally dont think it will,heres hoping tho

Steve Gibson wants him to come back and i'm pretty sure Woodgate would be happy with it so it'll happen. Especially as Burnley have been letting him work on his fitness at Rockliffe.

Also from what i've been told Ben Gibson is desperate to leave Burnley and only wants to come here.

Fry hasn't been the same since he got injured. not saying it is just this, but the problem is he came back and then had to be the one of the main guys at the back in a difficult time when results weren't going our way. Been much better when playing alongside Ayala or Ben imo. He will develop, but at the moment he just hasn't been great in certain situations. Don't think it helps going through different centre back partnerships due to injuries either. Looked the part against Spurs at home though. Really did

he is playing on the wrong side, and didn't have a pre-season. He obviously is slightly off the pace this year, but he has shown the potential to be top class. We just need to stick with him

Fry has shown enough potential to warrant plenty of faith. I appreciate he’s made mistakes but this season has been very makeshift at the back from keeper, to central pairing and wingback/fullbacks and formations and tactics. Can’t be easy. Playing on the left of a three is obviously not easy because he is so one footed. Always looks to shift the ball into his right foot and when under pressure that leads to mistakes. He is one of those players that need full faith and play every week unless he physically needs a break.

I would imagine if we sign gibson with a view to a permanent and the same with Oxford I would think Ayala may be sacrificed come the end of the season.

I don’t like the sound of this based on the fact that it sounds like a Gibson signing and not Woodgates.  
 

Didn’t we do the same with Stewy?

Yes, but we were paying Downing stupid wages and he was arguably past it. Ben Gibson isn't even in his prime.

I'd swap Gibson for Fry in an instant.. but he'd be mad to go there. Must be something to it though or the story wouldn't even be out there.

Stewy was the wrong side of 30 when we signed him.

Completely agree with that, as much as I don't think he's one of the best in the league currently he still has every chance to become one of them and be ready for the prem

    • You couldn't really legislate for Hugill scoring a worldy. That said even though we were crap and sloppy, but we should've got a point out of it.
    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.
