If he is offered a new contract, it will be for significantly less than he is on at the moment...so unless he is happy to accept that, then he will be gone as soon as we can get an offer within reason...club do not want same scenario as with Rudy

Not unless his contract runs out it won't. Fairly sure you can't offer reduced terms and need to wait for the contract to expire then resign them on reduced terms.

Ben Gibson been at Rockcliffe again today. Seems weird as they were at home today. Could be nothing but seems odd to me

Only 22 though, in great form at the moment and would suit Woodgates tactics and formation alot more than Britt.

Has the potential to be alot better than him aswell

Everyone has the potential to be better, doesn't make it likely. Could argue if he was that decent he wouldn't have left Newcastle

yes....but that does not mean you cannot say..."hey, Adam..just letting you know that when this contract is up, this is what you are likely to be looking at next time..."...you might turn round and say "my finances permit me to do that" or "I shall examine other options"...you would probably not say "don't tell me what I can expect, i want it to be a surprise"...Legally, I am sure you are right, but there is a difference between an agreement and a contract..some people agree things and stick to it, others don't..all conjecture but I am sure Britt's agent will be doing the right thing (for somebody)

Had a catch up with someone today who has been with Ben. Burnley told him he won’t be coming here unless we change stance on dael hence another bust up with dyche. Looks like loan to another premiership team with full wages paid.

In that case Fry stays and Gibbo goes on loan elsewhere. I'm not sure what Dyche thinks he would gain from bullying us into selling him a player who doesn't want to go there.  Does he really want to sign someone who doesn't want to play for him?

If that's true, see ya after, Dyche. Move on. We need defenders, we gain nothing trying to swap one for another, move on from Gibson if it's not going to happen. Said it multiple times already in this window, if it ain't gonna happen, get a shift on and find someone else. Starting to feel like the January window in the Prem, too long spent chasing players we're not gonna get. Welcome back, Adlene Guedioura!

If Fry had no interested he could tell Burnley no and all this would go away.

Sounds a bit weird regarding Fry. I could understand if it was because of our lack of finances but this just sounds ridiculous.

Gibson didn't want to go to Burnley either. Pretty sure there's no chance Fry wants to go and take Gibson's place as a 4th choice centre-back who only gets their game if 2 of the fittest centre-backs in the Prem drop out of their team. Especially after Gibson's experience, he'll be put right off. I really don't think it matters in Burnley's eyes.

I guess Gibson can just refuse to go to Watford and Burnley will eventually just want him and his wages off the books? What a ridiculous situation though. Wonder if Steve Gibson feels guilty? 
 

cant imagine we will ever want to deal with Burnley again

    • What do you mean by you installed the Win8 iso onto a flash drive? The iso is meant to be burned to a DVD-rom.¬† It should be an executable file for a flash drive.
    • In no particular order: ¬† Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only¬†need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood! ¬†
    • Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB. ¬† I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now¬†
    • God, I couldn't even pick just three.¬† Lots to choose from over the years, including some of the great choices selected above¬†ūüĎć Hendrie's two against Luton, bye bye Ayresome but hello Premier League and The Riverside.¬† Ravanelli at Wembley 96/97, it looked like we were going to do it finally but then we didn't.¬† Festa, a whole week later, at Old Trafford against Chesterfield, when it looked like we'd avoided an absolute catastrophe only for history to repeat itself.¬† Rav's¬†last minute penna winner against Villa at the beginning of the week of destiny.¬†¬†The whole¬†first 5 mins of the Liverpool League Cup semi final in 97/98.¬† The first few minutes of the second half against Oxford in the same season.¬† Festa's last minute¬†equaliser at Southampton when we were down to 9 men for a 3-3 draw in the 98/99 season and Brian Deane's goal to put us 3-0 up at Man Utd a few weeks later - I think that was the last game Man Utd lost that season before winning the treble - "We're gonna win the league", well maybe not.¬† Boksic twice up at St James park against the Geordies a couple of seasons later.¬† 01/02 season against Man Utd in the cup, hardly any bugger there because there was some argument about the ticket pricing and the fact that it was a lunchtime kick off on the telly, two goals in the last 5 mins to win it, hurrah!¬† We had some good times against Man Utd back then for whatever reason.¬† Speaking of which, the following season at home against them on Boxing day, all three goals were decent but the Job one at the end to clinch it because of the second or two it took for Maccarone to head the ball across to him was nice.¬† Same sort of reason but earlier in that season, against the Mackems at home and Nemeths second goal (our third) when he kind of ran through on his own to score in front of the North Stand - I think it was just the sense of anticipation really. 03/04 season in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.¬† The first 6 or 7 mins as a whole but I was partly hysterical throughout the entire game really when I think about it.¬† It was ours to lose after that start and unfortunately we seemed to experts in finding ways to do just that up until that point.¬† Same season, scoring twice in injury time maybe to get a 3-3 draw at home against Leicester and another win at Old Trafford, Juninho scoring twice with his head! and Job getting the winner after Man Utd came back to level.¬† How did Man Utd win so much back then when we used to give them a going over on a regular basis?¬† Weird, football, isn't it?¬† 04/05 season, not a goal but Schwarzer saving that penalty at Man City in injury time on¬†the last day of the season to get us into Europe again has to be right up there.¬†¬†The following season has to be the European goals already mentioned above, the games as a whole were mental but scoring late on to win not just once but twice is about as crazy as it gets.¬† Humping Man Utd (again) and Chelsea was also a lot of fun. After that point things got darker and those amazing moments never seemed to come around, at least not for me anyway.¬† There were always odd games or whatever but we were in decline and you could feel it.¬† We had some good games under Mowbray and obviously we were in the hunt a couple of times during seasons but we always fell away.¬† I think you're probably waiting until the 14/15 season for some more great moments - Leadbitter's freekick at Huddersfield was fantastic, Bamford's goal at Derby and the own goal at Norwich, the play off games against Brentford.¬† I stopped going away from home by this point though so most of those weren't experienced in the same way, the home play off game of course was though.¬† Following season, both games against Brighton had goals which got me going and¬†against Derby over Xmas with the two goals in two minutes.¬† Nugent against Hull and Forshaw against Reading, mental. Probably loads I've missed out as well.¬† I think I just enjoy us scoring goals in any circumstances¬†ūüėÄ
    • In order of age: 1. Ravenelli's in the FA cup quarterfinal that guarnteed we were into our first ever FA cup semi. 2. Zenden's penalty in the league cup final 3. Nugent's goal against Hull
