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

    • 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 😂
