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

    • 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.
