  1. I wouldn’t say it’s a farce. It demonstrates a flexible approach. They don’t have all the answers and are reacting to new data that is arriving daily. They had to push a statement out when they did as to hold back would have drawn widespread criticism about inactivity and gambling on the public’s health. Yesterday saw the single biggest increase of confirmed cases and the first death in Scotland, so the goal posts had moved again. We as a country and a world are all making it up as we go along as we’ve never faced anything like this before. Yes we’ve historic examples of epidemics/pande

  3. There was a danish scientist yesterday who explained fairly well why they are doing it the way they are in Britain. In short there is a “text book” plan on pandemic that describes what to do at what stages. Doing things too early won’t help and currently Britain are following that line and there is nothing wrong with the way they are doing it. You can’t just compare with a country that is at a different level. The public needs to stop whipping up a frenzy. There are experts in the area advising the government on how to go about it and are also taking advice from the international community of

  4. The uk strategy is different from everywhere else which is a risk but I think it makes more sense. Other countries are trying to entirely shut down and hope the virus goes away but in all likelihood once they relax this it will come back and they are back at square 1. We seem to be trying to get mass immunity by allowing it to spread slowly at a rate the nhs can cope with, then over a period of time the country gets herd immunity protection and it doesn’t come back in a big way. Risky but potentially smart.

  5. Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen, I have finally had some time to have a really good look at our financial accounts for the period upto June 2019 (The 2018-2019 season). As a word of warning this will be a post that is very number heavy. I apprieciate this will not be a thread that is everyone's cup of tea, but as far as I am aware, no-one has a gun to your head making you read this. The Facts: Turnover: In the latest figures released for the 2018/2019 season turnover was £55,643,000. Compare that to the 2017/2018 season's figure of £61,996,000, we have a decrease of 10.25%. *Cost

  6. It's tough for the elderly, and also those that are at higher risk (immuno-compromised, or underlying health conditions) as it completely destroys the fabric of their social existence. Just remember to reach out and call people, even use video calling if its an option. And spare a thought for the parents trapped with small children for the foreseeable future!

  7. Thing is, I'm not too fussed as I never expected us to beat Swansea. Doesn't make the subs look any better, though his hands were a bit tied when we were forced to bring Leo on for Stojanovic. It was enough of a shock to see him on the bench, and that he'd chosen the #69 to wear. Did anyone else notice Mark Page have a bit of a giggle when he read the subs out?

  9. I actually think we will be far better next season. Robert's will be massive, Gibson and Moukoudi at the back solid. All the youngsters coming through with another years experience.

  12. Given that there won't be any football, for a little while at least, I wondered if a thread like this could be worthwhile for those who still want their Boro fix? It's not to be confused with the Erimus on this day thread. It's just a thread to talk about things in Boro's past, get some vids up and that kind of thing. It can be anything, favourite seasons, favourite games, worst seasons/games, memorable games for you personally, great games in Boro's history, whatever really. If it's a daft idea or nobody is interested then feel free to delete the thread mods 👍

  13. Boro v Swansea is another massive game & another vital 3 points as the mighty Boro try & drag themselves away from the wrong end of the championship, after the magnificent away result at Charlton last week, a win that enabled us to jump out of the botom 3, leapfrogging Charlton, Hull & Wigan & within touching distance of Huddersfield & Stopke above us, the Championship looks a lot more friendlier than a few weeks back Swansea, sitting in 11th place on 53 points are winless in the last 3 games & pushing for playoff points, the Boro & Woodgate will still be bou

  15. I think Forshaws goal was the goal that got us promoted as dropped points could have given Brighton the advantage for the rest of the season. It's probably the most I have celebrated a Boro goal bar the Basel/Steaua games. It's just a shame we managed to Boro up the next few seasons and find ourselves where we are.

  17. In terms of time frame BU, Erimus74 should beat your winning run! How thrilling...……….not! What a pity this has happened because in my fantasy game Clayton scored a brace!

  18. From a purely epidemiological point of view, it is a sensible approach. Time will tell whether it is a smart move in reality. The approach is dependent on the virus staying largely the same (enough for our immune systems to recognise that they have antibodies against it and for those antibodies to work correctly) and on our being able to keep those who are most vulnerable away from the virus until herd immunity has developed. If the virus mutates significantly (it is a coronavirus which is the same family as the common cold and the cold virus mutates a lot) then when other countries lift

  27. From a football impact, the season is over guys, time to face this. There is simply no scope to continue the season beyond its current boundary without compromising it. Player contracts run until June 1st, as do loan agreements. If the season were to be extended over the summer months, the integrity of the competition is gone because the squads will be different. You couldn't force any club to loan a player through an extended season and you couldn't force players to stay with a club once the contract has run out. From a club perspective, they will all lose income, which may ti

  29. They can try...I doubt they will get much joy. As long as the Leagues work work out a plan to finish the season, there won't need to be any legal challenges. Will likely require a lot of re-scheduling, but I think it could still be done...unless they decide to postpone all fixtures until June/July, in which case it'll probably be too late. But given a global pandemic is something that is beyond everyone's control, if the season ends now, clubs will just have to suck it up and deal with it.

  30. No issues here Joe however in your introduction you have pretty much stated what most Boro fans have known throughout their supporting lives. Recall marching bands, but that does not count! However rumour has it that we were going to play "the dance of the sugar plumb fairies" because so many of our players seemed to be dancing on tippy toes In answer to your question when "pigbag" first became the music of choice my son had got himself a CD with maybe four different versions of the song which would be constantly played throughout a 240 drive to Middlesbrough and depending on res
