Title: Ben Gibson back to Boro?
Post by: headset on May 23, 2022, 03:15:11 PM
muted rumours - i can't see it myself like.

i doubt we could afford him with 2yr left on his contract unless it's a loan and, I doubt Norwich would agree to that.

he is the type of left-footer at the back that would suit us i would take him back - I just can't see it myself in reality- most players go back home for the last move of their career - if he was out of contract I could see it happening.

That's the only bad thing about Norwich & Burnley coming down and needing a bit of a re-build they will be in the market for the same players as us due to our needs for a bit of a squad re-build  - so will likely blow us out of the water 'money wise' in any head to head for players.

Sometimes it just doesn't work out when a player moves. Prime example was Kerny, never the player he was under Lennie for us.

it's looking like he is out of his depth in the premier league. 2 relegations now under his belt

it's always hard to judge individuals in a generally poor team which promoted clubs are normally bracketed for obvious reasons...

my take on him is he is a top-end very good championship player that will struggle in the premier league..

that said he did ok under Karanka in the prem - maybe due to the defensive protection we played..

I would say his premier league days are over if i was asked my opinion on his future
