Enough of Shotton or whoever else's wage packets. Let's get down to transfer news...

If we want to discuss wages then let's create another thread...

I don't think it would, mate.  I don't see a scenario in which players would accept less money than they actually want.  The method of paying that money  - wages or signing on fees - wouldn't alter how much money we have to pay them.  Unless there is some tax benefit to a signing on fee then there would be no reason for any player to accept a bigger signing on fee but miss out on more from a lower wage.

I guess it depends on how the signing on fee works, if they then leave during the period of their contract they could be better off financially by taking a chunk up front and lower ongoing salary. 

But I'm quite surprised that Shotton is on £15k if its true.

Apparently after talking with Augsburg we decided to leave Oxford alone is how the Echo understands it, as the Gazette suggested yesterday I guess. Not much new besides that the Echo rule out the Gregory link and say we're after 1 defender and after that a wide player.

I see it as players are a commodity , valued and promoted by agents and clubs. The players stock value fluctuates based on statistical merit and Investors interest. I dare say players may try and stay put if long term plans exceed short term returns or the profit is lower than the effort needed to move. Least not forget the common denominators of value are divided between Club, Agent, Player and investor. 
We know little about how it works or what they earn and we are not likely to be invited to give an opinion so basically who really gives a @@@@.

The article also mentions that Watford are interested in Gibson. If we fail to agree something with Burnley I can see Gibson being lured in by Nigel Pearson for the rest of the season. They would surely have the finances to accept Burnleys demands. Unless Burnley doesn't want to strengthen a direct opponent.

at the end of the day any move will depend on Gibson so it'll be Ben's decision but i thought Watford well stocked at CB

Yeah I'd say that would rule Watford out of any deal.

Downie saying we’ve had a loan offer rejected for Gibbo, contrasting stories all over.

It's become more complicated because the player they want to replace Gibson with is Dael Fry. 

Higher offer for Dael is imminent 

Ben won't be heading south

Anything over 10 just sell fry. Probably get him back in 2 years for less that half the price

If we need to sell Fry for 10mil plus,  to get Gibson + another CB, its a yes from me.  Never really undestood the hype around Fry only a regular this season and his form in the main has been pritty poor, granted theres potential but give me a 27 year old Gibcon in his prime and a chester/Reid/Dann all day long.

Any idea what the higher offer is likely to be?

    • Yes I would agree with this if mid table like a month ago but as now we are heading league one we have to cut losses sack Woodgate get a Warnock in to keep us in the Championship. As if we get league one football it's a very long way back!
    • I enjoyed the game tonight tbh, despite it being freezing. I thought we went toe to toe with Leeds for the most part and could have quite easily nicked a goal or maybe even two on a different night. I'm not ready to completely write Woodgate off just yet - I think until he's had a proper chance to balance the squad to his liking over the summer & also get rid of all the various high earners (who've been pretty uninspired for several managers over several years now), it's kinda difficult to judge the poor bugger. He's clearly not doing a fantastic job, but I think a lot of managers would have struggled with us this season - espescially given the task of relying on youth and completely overhauling the playing style, but with pretty much the same core group.. All the young players will be a season better next year and hopefully the same will go for Woodgate. Assuming we make some positive moves/changes to the squad over the summer, we can start to build from there. Although I appreciate that it's fashionable to be negative on this forum, so with that said; Woodgate out!
    • The Forrest games on Monday this gives the club a long weekend of double training sessions. As honestly Gibson needs to say Woodgate will you resign if he doesn't sack him then get a Warnock in who be here 9am this morning getting them players drilled for 4 days. I reckon if this happened by Monday night the Boro will be transformed and may beat Forrest. But nope this won't happen the players will laze around for 4 days doing pre season like drills then stuffer another L on Sky. I don't actually think Boro have won a game live on Sky this year
    • Don't really want to see George  playing for us anymore, he has lost it totally. Food for thought I do not imagine for one moment that Ben Gibson will be donning a Boro shirt if we do go down
    • 352 britt and fletcher up front, howson or spence rwb, tav in the middle where he was doing well.
