If, like me, you’ve a lot of spare time in your life, you’ll surely be taking a look at what other clubs are doing in the transfer window.
Certainly, it beats dwelling on our lack of activity and, sometimes, particular developments seem to be in our favour.
For example, Middlesbrough have signed Aden Flint recently as a new centre-half. My immediate reaction, then, was that we now need to up our game in terms of going after Ben Gibson.
I can understand there might be some doubts over him given he’s only played one season in the Premier League but, during that time, he was a real asset and looked assured despite Boro’s drop.
They seem to be already planning for his possible exit, too, so to now not get in the mix for the player when we’re surely one of most attractive propositions would be silly.
Williams is getting on, it’s time we take advantage of things going on around us.
