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?

    • I don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
