If Gibson won't go to Watford then they can bid anything they like and it won't make a difference I guess.

But if it turns out it’s his only option because Burnley will only accept their bid then he’d be better off going there on loan.

I suppose ultimately he doesn't have to go anywhere, if he only wants to go to Boro no one can make him play for Watford.

The Watford link seems to be for a purchase not a loan; and I just have a sneaking suspicion there's only one place Gibbo wants to go.

Erm.... No, not an anagram!!! 

 

Just spoke to the person that told me about the gibson thing originally. He reckons it'll all go through on deadline day. Reckons loan with the amount of loan with view to a permanent. Still saying it will cost the club no more than 10k per week.

He only wants to come home. Has his heart set on it, regardless of the cost

The Spence line is very encouraging though.

Woody said last week Spence, Pears and Tav should be signed up within 10 days. I was thinking they’d save it for the end of the month to keep all the whiners happy when there’s no late January incomings..

Yeah, I was wondering where the extra 'i' came from but I'm so used to my son disappointing me nowadays that I don't even bother commenting any more.  He's getting very close to being disowned, which he might be delighted with, to be fair 🤔

Re: Ben Gibson. Think Burnley team sheet for FA Cup will tell us a lot as its a game you would normally expect Gibbo to start but if he doesn't then that could be telling imo.

I’d be surprised if he plays for them again. Unless Dyche goes.

    • 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.
