  1. Feel a little strange posting this but just wanted to thank all the members for their contributions to the site. Been struggling for the last 2 years. Often go to bed on a night wondering whether it would just be easier to stay asleep. When i do wake up and try to pretend everything is ok and go to work as normal this forum is a genuine source of escape for me. Thanks to all. #UTFB

  2. The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through. Gives his all, box to box midfielder, left footed, thinks Boro is a class club and loves it here already. Source - the lads dad 😁

  3. Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to Newcastles interest. For me he is someone who clearly has a good attitude and tries his best each game and his work ethic is incredible, we all know his general play and shooting can be worked on and he definetly has the talent to find more consistency in that regard but I’m sure it will come. I just don’t understand comments saying get rid as if he is some kind of mercenary when he isn’t , looks

  4. Got to say credit where credit is due, I’m hugely impressed with the business we have done so far. The fact that other clubs were willing to pay a higher percentage of Flo’s wages but we were the club and player’s preference. The fact that we’ve edged out Celtic for McGree, a club who have the pull of European football and a manager the player already knows from his time with the national team. I just feel like it speaks volumes to the project that Chris Wilder and Kieran Scott are building. Very exciting times to be a Boro fan.

  5. In West Belfast born and raised On the playground was where Caolan spent most of his days Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin', all cool And all shootin' some footballs outside of the school When a couple of guys who were up to no good Started making trouble in his neighborhood He got in one little fight and his mam got scared She said, "You're movin' to Boro with Paddy McNair"

  6. So got told he is a LWB who is extremely fast, Reece James Dad (Nigel) has an academy in London which got Bilongo noticed and has now been scouted by most of the PL and Championship teams, Chelsea got cold feet on him and messed the lad about a bit, apparently he was devastated. From what's been described has a lot of similar raw attributes as Jones and will need heavy coaching but "should be taken seriously" as a player and thinks we are paying the same as Chelsea were to get him (i.e. 50k). Nigel James has said Boro want to replicate what weve done with Isaiah Jones and that we've

  8. - Payero Potentially may be going out on loan (no option to buy) if we get 2 players in and our T&C's regarding his full wages are covered. His preference is to back to Argentina but clubs can't afford his full wages but interest also coming from German and Italian clubs who can cover his 18k wages. Deal is to get him 1st team football and come back for the summer. Deal makes sense especially if we don't renew Howson contract although talks have begun on that front but it will be even further reduced terms. Not sure if people are aware but Howson's last contract extensi

  12. Connolly has basically been character assassinated on here today based on nothing more than conjecture and tabloid tittle tattle. Girlfriend is on ‘love island’ he’s a wrong un, girlfriend is Alex Scott off the tele, he’s ok. None of you knows the first thing about any of these people and what they are like off screen. As far as I can see he’s been immature in some of his behaviour (God forbid as a 21 year old), and has a bit to prove as a player, which is presumably why we have the opportunity to look at him on a 6 month loan. I trust the club to have taken all of this into consideration befo

  14. Evening all, I've had a read through all of this thread and the opinions mentioned. I'll do my best to summarise. If memory serves me right, the oneBoro Forum is approaching its 15th year… 15 years!! Over that time, the admin and moderator team have gone above and beyond anything that could be expected of them, doing this on a voluntary basis in-between their day to day lives, often going unnoticed at times. Looking at the stats we’ve had almost 40,000 posts over the past 6 months. Keeping on top of all of these posts is no easy job. Difficult decisions have to be made at times, and

  16. WTF is going on with us right now?? I don’t get it. Because, from what I can figure out from the transfer market so far, is that we seem organised, know who, or what type of player we want. Have figured out which players either don’t fit the system or simply aren’t good enough for what we want to achieve and we are in the process of getting rid. Even if they are ‘nice guys’ or ‘work hard’. We even seem to be attracting proper players, rather than the usual old journeymen or mercenaries. It’s like we’re a proper football club with a proper manager and a proper director of football. We even have

  18. Hi everyone, I am fine. I’m sorry for the message last night being poorly worded. In the daylight of morning i can see how it might have been misleading. i was only trying to say i need to step away from the forum as found myself glued to it and doing nothing much else. If id thought more carefully i would have been less dramatic and said I’m going for a walk this morning and then the game this afternoon and ill see you guys soon, but sadly i didnt.

  19. Nothing wrong with healthy debate on any topic including this one, just important for a few lads to remember that we're all on the same team. Not everyone is gonna agree on every subject and that's more or less the whole point of a forum isn't it, to have reasoned discussion? Also important to remember the benefits this place has, as the thread from Youngy228 the other day highlighted. There's a pretty good group on here for the most part and is miles better than any other forum I've posted on and it's the only one I've ever really stuck with over the years.

  20. Us and Stoke shouldn't be in that article. It's just parroting the Telegraph's pile of dogshite they posted yesterday trying to ragebait clicks from salty fans of cheating clubs. We routinely lose the maximum amount we're permitted to under FFP and it's an area Gibson really has his finger on the pulse. We've had windows where we've voluntarily acted like we were under embargo (thinking Mowbray and Woodgate days) to stick within our limits. Some donkey from the Telegraph's looked at our losses from last season without considering we've shifted on some of the most expensive players we've h

  22. With regards to Tav, I think it is absolutely mental that there are actually fans that want him gone. He is absolutely vital to our team. Yes, his goal output needs to improve. But his overall contribution to our play is crucial. His link up play is absolutely brilliant. Unlike some of our players, he never hides. He always creates an option for the player on the ball. You will notice that when he doesn’t play, our build up play looks so much more disjointed and that is because when we have the ball, there are usually no passing options. On top of that, Tav’s work rate, energy and enthusiasm a

  24. Some absolute shocking takes regarding Crooks tonight. Why the hell do people always want to change everything when we lose literally one game (away to the most inform team) after having the 2nd (?) best form since Wilder came in? We’ve lost one game ffs. Drives me insane and it’s always just a massive over reaction. Also please for god sake why would you change the most important and dangerous part of our team (by far) by moving Crooks away from Jones. If you think you could slot any player in the RCM and get the same out of Jones you’d be wrong. Players build relationships all over the pitch

  26. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! As I reached level 5 in MDT making, all the members of the Oneboro forum decided to have a huge celebration party!!! So we all hired the Middlesbrough Karaoke Partybus and went on a roadtrip round town! Before the roadtrip, we had a huge party at the Riverside: Brunners, Wilson and a few others including Diggerlad gave little DZ the best gift ever, as they let him celebrate topless ❤️ We all enjoyed the roadtrip very much, especially the part, where Blanco and NeverBefore showed us all how they celebrate in Ireland.

  31. Welcome to oneBoro, and well done for raising your head above the parapet in enemy territory! (Though we're a nice bunch on here, apart from one or two weirdoes). Steve Gibson has been pursuing Derby (Mel Morris in particular) for three years about perceived transgressions of EFL rules. The fact DCFC are now in administration and facing an uncertain future doesn't mean he's going to give up on years of (what he believes to be) justifiable legal action. As other posters have mentioned, we sold our crown jewels - including Gibson's own nephew Ben - to stay within FFP limits. We didn't sell

  33. Derby County Football Club owe HMRC somewhere in the region of £28 million yet somehow none of today's MP statements or news reports make mention of it... The biggest disgrace to football wouldn't be Derby getting liquidated it would be them wriggling out of a £28 million tax bill it would make a mockery out of every club and every individual in this country who does pay their taxes. I don't care if we get a penny out of Derby but the new owner will need to pay that tax bill in full anything less would be an absolute disgrace.

  34. We have went from selling Tav to the premier league to loaning him out to a divisional even though he plays every game for us. Our fan base. Utterly mental. Leave the lad alone, he’s doing just fine and had his best game for a while on Saturday. The signing off McGree will hopefully ignite him.

  36. @Youngy228first of all, very brave of you to speak up on here. Many wouldn't. As most of you know, I like so many have had a tough couple of years myself, and, with social contact limited, it's been a great comfort to find people online to have a chat and a laugh about the less important things (and remember, that's what football is!) Keep looking upwards, pal.

  37. McGree is an Aussie being bought from an American club in fairness. Most of our signings are likely to be from the British Isles because we're a British club. That's just a fact. I never really get why people are bothered about where players come from? I'm bothered about how good they are, are they decent pro's, can we afford them.

  44. Just on Spence. I think @Neverbefore summed it up well. He's a player with potential and it would be very interesting to see how he'd do in a Wilder team. As others have said it feels like he could go to the top or he could plummet to a level below where we are. In an ideal world we'd keep him and see where he ended up. But we don't live in an ideal world and we are under certain financial constraints; Firstly the fact Spence isn't at the club, so his sale wouldn't affect the current team's performance weights in the favour of selling him. That coupled with the absolute revelat
