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 

Why would Steve Gibson be feeling guilty? Over his nephews lack of playing time at Burnley?

And why would this put us off dealing with Burnley again? A club wants the best deal it can get for one of its players. Sure that happens in every single deal.

Its hilarious seeing all the anti-Dyche stuff. He's become a proper pantomine villain on here and I bet he doesn't give a stuff about us.

I think we need to try and get Simpson from Bournemouth, just in case the Gibson deal does not materialise, at the end of the day we need a CB by the end of next week.

If Britt does go in these final days the club must make sure they get enough of a fee to sign Toney as a replacement.

Ben was forced out by his uncle by all accounts on here. Not sure this is a standard situation if Burnley are only saying they will let him come if we sell them Fry but maybe I’m blinded by my dislike of Dyche!

Picture is Legit... was there last night and today... let's see what next week brings... I'm told he has told Dyche and Burnley only one club he wants to join... if he cant he will stay there until the summer. Cant disclose anymore I'm afraid.

Not his uncle.... more TP and the necessity to ensure we fell in line with FFP.

The reasons above and also his own desire to play in top flight? He was one of the few positives from our dismal premier league season. He agreed to stay for 1 season to help get us back up which never happened so off he went to try and further his career.

I can see it happening because he clearly dosnt want to be there. I understand teams keeping players that want out if there key players but Ben Gibson isn't getting a look in. Makes no sense to keep him. His value will Continue to decrease of he stays there and dosnt play games. 

 

Only thing that puzzles me is his wages. If he's on 40 grand a week are we gonna give him that aswell

If we take our rose tinted specs off and look at things from a neutral perspective, do you think coming back here would be a good move for Ben Gibson. 

I'm not sure we are ready as a club to compete for promotion for a while yet and if the rumours are true and clubs like Leeds and Fulham want him on loan then I think there's better options for him. I actually think he's good enough to play in the Premier league if he can find the right club.

Maybe he just wants to come home; some players are like that.

    • 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 😂
