Youngster Liam Gibbs 06:41 - Jun 13 with 7415 viewsUpthetown1970

I have been informed that Aston Villa, Brighton, Norwich and Rangers are interested in Gibbs. I fear we could lose this very talented youngster as I believe his contract expires at the end of the month.

You have been informed? If the lad wants a move, he should be allowed to move. Nothing much Cook can do other than talk to him and see where he wants to be. We can't just offer up contracts because someone was informed.

Exactly, the club have offered Gibbs a contract. If he can get better elsewhere and at a club he feels he can progress with, then fair enough but that's football.

We'd be owed a transfer fee/tribunal compensation if that happened, I believe?

To quote Joe, some players are just too good to for us to keep, maybe he should speak with Charlie Brown, who made a lot of money but does not appear to have progressed as a player, but that may be harsh and quite possibly wrong.

Knowing someone involved heavily in the academy this is one we must keep.

Mate says he is the real deal.

As were Dean Bowditch and Charlie Brown and Alan Lee said Jack Lankester was the best he has worked with.

At the end of the day the club receives compensation and there cannot be restraint of the player's opportunities. However, the club should consider how best to sell the project to these youngsters as well as to new signings. Ultimately, though, money is likely to talk. Very few players, no matter how highly rated, actually make it and if there is money on offer right now who can blame them for taking it?

Charlie would tell him, "well, I got paid well for the last 5 years and I've ended up at the same level as Ipswich anyway, so..."

Keiron Dyer has a bit to say about this on the excellent podcast with Blue Monday and Phil. He was really clear that we need to do a better job of selling the project to young players.

Discussions are ongoing, I think. None of the clubs mentioned are the one I heard were the most interested, incidentally. Which isn't to say they're not interested as well, I know a lot of clubs are keen.

Hes definitely a player we should be fighting to keep. What club had you been told is the front runner. Hope Mr Ashton is speaking with him and his agents

I'll keep that to myself for the moment. I think the expectation is that it'll get done.

I really hope so. Everyone I talk to at the club absolutely believe this lad is the best to come through the academy for a long time. I was also told that Liverpool were really impressed with Gibbs when he played against them in the FA youth cup semifinal. Come on Town get this lads contract sorted!

Wouldn't surprise me. I thought he was the outstanding player in the Youth Cup games I saw.

Was impressed by the lad who played at Right Back in the games I saw too - bit of pace, and always looking to get forward and support the attacks...

Villa, Brighton and Norwich would all be very able to pay much more than we could, I am sure. Whether, as he is not included in the wage structure for this league's version of FFP (due to his age as far as I understand it), we could pay him a very good wage and whether we would be willing to are other questions. He would only go to Rangers if it was the best offer I am sure.

It is good to read that Phil is confident he may well sign with us.

We are paying for not bothering to go for Category One. All this ‘we fell just short’ is tripe. If we’d wanted it, we’d have invested more than required and made sure. It’s simple, invest or have your best young players removed for peanuts.

If the new owners are serious, this is the first area to put proper money into. If they’re not prepared or financially able to do this, collapse it and stop wasting money on it.
