Exactly. Oxford could still be seen as the dm to replace clayton and if Howson moves on.

If Ayala moves on too then we could do far worse with a fry/gibson partnership.

Considering he hasn’t moved to Venlo yet I’d say there is interest from elsewhere.

I don't think it's a simple choice between Gibson and Oxford if the finances aren't anywhere near the same. I'd have Gibson back over chancing it with Oxford if they were both gonna cost us the same but I just don't see how that could happen.

Regarding Fry rumours, unless we're selling because we have a plan on how best to spend the money, keep him for now. Just getting some money out of him right now doesn't help us and it only hinders our back line. I feel like I keep saying this over and over but in terms of getting wages off the books, Fry is not burning a hole in our pocket. I'd sooner shift Britt and take a bigger loss on him than sell Fry because somebody is offering £10m+.

If selling Fry for the £15m price mentioned meant being able to sign Roberts and Gibson on permanent deals with change to spare, that would sound very appealing to me.
 

Although I can’t see Fry wanting to go at all personally

Personally think he hasn’t been helped playing on his weak foot constantly, being alongside Gibbo who is obviously a natural left footer I can see him continuing to improve while Dani is injured.

Oxford is only 20 you know just feel he has great potential 

I just feel that if he was all that, West Ham wouldn’t have let him go.

TBH I dont go off the logic that X team would not let X player go if he that good.  Therefore he cant be all that.

That logic could have been applied to Randolph when we signed him but he turned out to be just fine.

Happens all the time. Chelsea let Salah and De Bruyne go.

Your right. It's like Southampton letting gaston go out on loan to us. If you sit and think about it there has been loads of players who have been let go by a side and have turned out to be a good player. De bruyne and salah for example

If pulis was still here for the next 2 seasons do you think spence and Coulson would have got a chance. Probably not. And both there contracts would of ran out.

That’s all fair enough. I just feel that if two different clubs (West Ham and now Augsburg) are happy enough to let a supposed “hot prospect” leave their club’s for next to nothing, there’s something not quite right.

    • Probably Keane...Leo's quite a sturdy chap, isn't he? 
    • I'm not talking about giving him credit over the long term. I'm saying that game was perhaps the best we've played this season and it was really good. That doesn't happen thanks to luck. West Brom didn't just let us win, we won the tactical battle by being set up tactically in favour of winning the game away at the league leaders. You won't even give him that which says your judgement of short-term victories is blinded by the long-term and the long-term is not something I'm disputing. You don't have to give him a resounding pat on the back for a whole season by allowing one match to be considered a genuine success.
    • Which one? Keane or Leo? Hohoho. Safe travels and enjoy the game!
    • Doesn't look like any team is going to leapfrog Leeds as they're all taking turns in bottling it when they get the chance. Tony Mowbray is doing a great job at Blackburn though.
    • I've been trying to find some optimism for this game, but I don't have any. I can't see anything other than a Barnsley win. They are better than us and should have beaten us at the Riverside (we really got lucky there).  3-0 Barnsley.  I think we can get a point off Charlton, but I am really struggling to see other games where we are likely to pick up points. It's worrying.
