I am not saying this because it seems the Gibson deal might be drifting away from us but I am quite relaxed about the whole situation. i think the reason for that is we seem to be eyeing some decent alternatives in Benkovic and Simpson who both come with a lot of promise. For once we not put all our eggs in one basket.
I know club are looking at two CBs but if we get 1 of the above 3 in I will be happy with that. if we dont get either of the 3 then I will start to worry.
Oh and i still got hopes our beloved boro will make a out the blue type signing for the top end of the pitch. Ideally more Lee Tomlin out the blue and less Adlene Guidioura out the blue.
Hey don't get uptight about it I was just pointing out to Smogzilla a fact and how I see it.
By the way there really is no effort in doing this, it just pass's some of my spare time and it keeps my brain active since I retired.
The finances always had to be right for this deal to happen in this window and were a long way off from that happening from what I was told Thursday.
What's the point in spending a million pound plus wages on a six month loan deal when we are not going to be either fighting relegation or fighting for the play offs.
Deal could still happen yet but I expect us to push hard for permanent transfer in the summer.
Ps whoever said Gibson had a medical over the weekend was talking utter cr@p
It'd also be unfair to Wood himself - get cover in and then play him when it's right to play him rather than rely on him. Let him learn when it's the right situation, and with experienced players alongside him, rather than pitch him in and hope for the best. Throwing him in there without support could really harm his development.
