Probably, as far as I know he didn't really want to go in the first place.

Yeah, he didn’t want to go. 
 

As we went through on a previous transfer thread, it all got a bit messy. Ended up taking a pay cut too.

The deal is all in place, stumbling block is they want someone in.

Why? Gibson isn't even on the bench when fit, and Mee and Tarkowski both rarely get injured, either. I think Dyche is just being a ***, as usual.

Can't really see it not going through then. Burnley are a Prem club after all and they are not looking for a starter so I don't think they are going to have big trouble finding someone if they really want another body.

Any others coming in Lurker? 

Interest in a few of our midfielders. Nothing happening yet. 
 

Can see us going for 2 CBs with Fry now injured.

Personally think we still want another wide player in but not many names going about just yet.

Really hope we don't leave it til next Friday evening and then panic-sign an absolute spud of a CB out of sheer desperation. It'd be nice not to worry about being linked with an SPL team's out-of-form CB for "just" £3 million.

The players and selling teams won't make a decision until the last second to try and squeeze out the best possible deal. It's largely out of our hands..

Has it been announced how long he's out for yet?

Woodgate says he expects him to be back quickly. Sounds like he should be back for the Blackburn game.

Watford considering bidding for Gibbo, according to the Northern Echo

 

Quote

SEAN DYCHE has hinted that Ben Gibson could leave Burnley if the figures are right, having already turned down a loan offer from Middlesbrough for the defender.

There is a lengthy list of clubs keen on signing the centre-back, including in-form Premier League side Watford who are heading towards safety under ex-Boro skipper Nigel Pearson.

And the Hornets are ready to push harder for Gibson, who would be allowed to leave Turf Moor if the terms were right.

Burnley would prefer to sell the man they paid a club record £15m for in the summer of 2018, but Middlesbrough are in no position to get anywhere near that or match his top-flight wages.

Even Burnley’s interest in Dael Fry - who Jonathan Woodgate suggested over the weekend that he will not be letting go for less than £30m – would not help Middlesbrough when it comes to match Gibson’s wage.

Watford are certainly in a stronger position to do that and they are currently weighing up whether to firm things up before Friday’s transfer deadline.

    • We have an official Fifa Esports player now! he's currently guided us into the last 8 of the Ultimate Quaran Team tournament being run.   He has beaten Huddersfield, Walsall, Central Coast Mariners & VVV Venlo so far.
    • The Irish health department released this graph today showing the effects of social distancing and lockdown. It's interesting as (if accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise) Ireland should be looking at about 15000 cases today but we are currently just shy of 3000 cases. Looks like we are flattening the curve here before we've hit critical saturation of the hospitals.       
    • A new study by from Imperial College London estimates that up to 2.7% of the UK population may have been infected so far - that's about 1.8m people if it's correct.  It's a statistical model though so you have to keep that in mind.  Also says that between 20,000 and 120,000 lives might have been saved across the 11 European countries they were looking at thanks to the measures put in place so far 👍
    • A quick addition to this interesting question, probably for the older supporters in part 1, but everyone who has travelled to support in part 2. part 1 when answering the original question I found that our time at the Riverside has been filled with great goals but when thinking about it I found that the goals that made me most exhilarated and hyper in my celebrations nearly all came at Ayresome Park, now I’m old enough to have been an active supporter over the 2 grounds but I do believe the sheer joy and communal togetherness of a Boro goal at Ayresome beats that at the Riverside. part 2 I also chose a goal scored away from home too, and I was wondering if anyone felt that goals scored at home or away brought out different feelings of joy and excitement. For me, I’ve been on many a thankless away trip but there is something genuinely special when you score away from home, whether it be a Bernie Tap in or a Karambeu missile like he did at Valley Parade, there all special but an away goal is like a good pint that comes with a chaser imo. You can never count on them but when they come everyone of them is welcome.
