  1. Starting at Round 4: Some good scores all round, with @SmogDane and @AnglianRed grabbing a joint Manager of the Week award.

  2. Exactly it’s an outrageous power grab and should be resisted by the other 86 clubs.

  5. He already said he feels they should help as the lower league clubs existence helps PL a lot in terms of players they develop who go on to play in top league. Also said younger and unproven managers start of in lower leagues before PL clubs take a chance on them.

  6. They are decent especially when you consider their population is only about 11,5 million, but I don’t think that’s taken into consideration. There is no way that are better than Brazil, Germany or Denmark in my opinion.

  7. Paddy starts with Northern Ireland. No Saville in squad. Hopefully Paddy starting tonight means he gets a breather on Wednesday from a purely selfish boro point of view

  8. Yes the idea of wearing a mask is to protect others. It’s amazing how many people can’t get their heads around this. Wear a mask and save others.

  9. The biggest issue in all of that is the special status thing. It basically allows the biggest 6 clubs to change whatever they like in the future. So these proposals would probably just be the start.

  14. Have those ITK nothing at all to say about the transfer situation or have they been silenced by their contacts? Thanks for past snippets. Anyhow this thread now seems redundant as it is weeks since anything was posted of any note, just speculation.

  15. Yeah dude, issues from earlier in the week reared their head again yesterday, but it's all good now, I'm in the middle of doing everything as we speak, should have everything ready to post in the next hour

  16. Judging by several Gazette articles it seems Warnock gave an interview to talksport this week. Unfortunately cant find link to interview but in todays artivle in gazette he talking "about adding 1 or 2 more" to squad before friday. Be interested to know if he means 1 or 2 more in addittion to Roberts or if Roberts is part of the 1 or 2? I assume in his head Roberts is done so must mean former. Or I hope he does.

  17. It seems odd that we’re holding off announcing both Fletcher’s injury and Roberts signing. As someone said yesterday - maybe Fletcher’s long injury lay off is being suppressed so that other club’s can’t sense that our desperation to sign a striker. Then once we negotiate and complete signing the striker, we’ll also announce the signing of Roberts alongside the negative of Fletcher’s injury? 2 positives and 1 negative would balance it out.

  18. There have been failings across all echelons of society this year, from top to bottom. But I had hoped after the catastrophic damage the first lockdown did (to the economy, mental health and children's welfare in particular) that our elected leaders would try to strike a better balance between protecting the most vulnerable members of society against a virulent pandemic on the one hand, and the incalculable health, social, educational, economic and cultural damage being wrought by lockdowns on the other. People will be dying prematurely for years - decades - from diseases not diagnosed or

  19. Hi everyone. I am a long term lurker on all 3 Boro "main" forums and decided that Oneboro is probably the safest haven for me (I do not really have an opinion on politics etc and the other boards sometimes appear top heavy with that topic). My 1st memory of a Boro game was a FA cup replay against Wolves at Ayresome Park in 1981. I remember being scared when my dad got separated from me into a different queue because it was heaving. I mean i was only 27. (I do enjoy humour btw), i was really 9. I look forward to getting stuck into some serious Boro talk.

  20. In the telegraph it's being reported how the Premier League bug clubs are going to try to use this conavirus to overhaul English football to their advantage 😞. Reducing the Premier League from 20 clubs to 18. But in return will give 25% of Premiership revenue to the EFL to be distributed prorata to EFL clubs. Whilst promotion will be top 2 in championship then 3,4,5th play the Premiership 16th Club. I feel like this is simply a power grab by the big clubs.

    • WOnder if this will be with immediate effect. Football is in absolute turmoil
    • The Carlisle News & Star have just published an article on the ESL which sums it up rather nicely...  
    • I don't know whether you've misunderstood my post or whether I have made my point very well, but let me make one thing clear. I don't think anything about this proposal is good, its a disgrace and I'd be over the moon if the 6 of them were turfed out for good.  What I was saying is that all this moral outrage should have been happening years ago. The game that most of us grew up loving has been gradually eroded over the last few decades. It isn't about the fans or sporting integrity at the top, its about pure greed and has been for years.  Just because the current system is better than the new proposed system it doesn't mean I should be happy with it. To counter a few of your examples, to take Hartlepool as a club, I can remember a time where Wimbledon climbed up the pyramid and fans of clubs that size could always dream of doing the same. That will never happen now.  You mention Leicester (I knew someone would use them as an example). They won the lottery when a billionaire bought them and they broke FFP rules to get promoted. How many clubs have sold their souls to foreign owners and got themselves into debt trying to do a Leicester. Its not a good model to try and copy really.  Finally, you ask me why I bother. Well its in the blood isn't it? There's no logic behind it but the majority of the magic has gone from the game. I grew up watching us be crap in the 80s but even then you could dream about finding a good manager, and crop of good young players and doing what Forest did under Clough. Now its either find a billionaire or simply exist. 
    • So long as Cork City don’t push themselves to the front and try take the place of Bray 😃
