Bit boring but here’s a video of his touches during his sheff utd debut, gets an assist and mainly just knocks the ball around. Not much to see but gives a feel of how he plays, seems to be playing a deeper almost Mikel type role here at times.

Looks to me like he will be one of them who looks quality on the ball and does naff all when he doesn’t have it.

yes i watched that, he looks decent enough. i dont think his ability is the worry he's a talented footballer. hopefully coming he everything will click for him.

Abit worried with Jordan Jones and Ravel Morrison we're signing two players who at every club they have been at have litteraly been singled out for showing a lack of effort. We need grafters, player's who will fight for the shirt hope these two aren't just gonna throw the towel collecting their pay check. If they was ever a definition of free rider players these are it.

Not really anything to be worried about is it?  Two months ago it looked like we're sinking to League One, now that was something to worry about.  Now fans are complaining about players that may or may not even come.

yes i like this idea, bit like what Holloway did at blackpool. get a rag tag bunch together and something clicks in place for them. 

The film your getting at is the Dirty Dozen me thinks?

They is defiently a player in there just his attitude comes across as if he isn't bothered not really putting the effort in that if he did he would of developed into a top player. Hopefully by some miracle Woody and Boro can sort this out

Maybe the Lads grown up a bit....Who knows?

For what it's worth, the member of the backroom staff I play football with wouldn't tell anyone information at football last night about incomings as he's under strict orders from someone called Jules? (Maybe the PA officer I don't know). However, the ex player which the majority of you can guess who it is is adamant that ... 'he's coming home, he's coming home, Benji Gibson's coming home'.

Apparently Travel I mean Ravel Morrison isn't the only attacking player who visited Rockcliffe this week but this one could be a permanent - I asked for names and again the backroom member wouldn't give me any names.

"Rangers' Jordan Jones was mentioned overnight, but at this stage, a deal for Sheffield United outcast Ravel Morrison is regarded as more likely. That should develop this morning."

Echo seem well behind the ball they're still on Gibson/Benkovic despite the Moukoudi thing seeming very advanced.

Also Ravel's started following our players, the EFL and Robbie Keane now on twitter I mean in the days of social media transfer tracking that seems nailed on at this point?

We should probably turn this thread into a ‘where’s Ben Gibson? thread, I’m sure we will be getting hourly updates on twitter of Ben Gibson’s cars whereabouts

TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY!

So...

Moukoudi in on loan

Morrison in on loan/permanent

Gibson in last minute loan with obligation to buy in the summer

 

That about right, chaps? Or will we get a last minute ridiculous panic buy out of nowhere? Maybe that Argentinian lad?

    • 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.
