  1. I will give you a slight insight of how my mind works, I see the name Lazaro, at that point 'Hello Dave, your my wife now Dave' pops into my head as I think about A League of gentlemen, which then links to Royston Vasey, which is Chubby Brown's real name and Chubby Brown is a Boro fan. Then I try to think of something funny or witty to post but as usual fail to find something along them lines, so I proceed to write a reply on here which turns out to be a written version of verbal diarrhoea.

  2. Can see why walker is undroppable in this team. His pace on the turn over to recover has probably been the most important factor towards England conceding so few goals all tournament.

  3. Hartlepool Mail has a good story on Payero, with some actual journalism https://www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk/sport/football/middlesbrough-fc/the-argentine-view-on-martin-payero-and-inside-track-on-middlesbrough-transfer-reports-3299016 The fee mentioned was $8million (£5.8million) which would be out of Boro’s price range, do you believe those figures to be correct? GGG:( the guy who broke the news) ““That’s the whole liberation fee. The contract of the player and Banfield’s fee. It’s a four-year contract.” (German later explained he believes the fee would be paid in ins

  4. I would sacrifice England going out to Italy in this final on Sunday 22-0, absolutely embarrassed by the Italians, just to breathe the same air as United, Liverpool and Arsenal on a yearly basis. Not in the way perhaps the likes of Sunderland did, you want to be at least competitive enough to guarantee staying up the way we did for most the 00s. But having that base to build from as a club, I'd have England embarrassed every sodding year just to see us playing against the best 19 teams in the country every week. I miss it so much.

  5. Just got home and saw the replay a few times again. Still can’t believe sterling got the pen. He was already beginning his dive before Jensen came in. Definitely looking for it and conned the ref into thinking it was Jensen who made him fall over when it was him looking for the dive. I have no problem with England winning but that should never ever be a pen.

  9. Yes of course you could be correct but you would of thought they would have released my information when I posted the information on the 26th and not wait for 3weeks later. I obviously knew about south Americans from the screenshot I posted previously and lazaro's name was passed onto me. Didn't have any inkling on the Payero deal so club is obviously scouting the area thoroughly. Good Avenue to go down imo and something I've wanted the club to do for a long while. What's your take on it?

  10. Well if that’s the whole fee it would include his wages over four years. If we are paying 14k a week that’s about £2.8m which would mean that we are paying Banfield £3m. Thats paid in instalments is only £750k per year. Seems very achievable in that context.

  14. Sterling was barged by Jensen. Anywhere else on the pitch, it's a foul. But don't expect bitter anti-English people to acknowledge that inconvenient truth. It suits them to claim England cheated, because it gives them a chance to argue against reality. Onto the final, for the first time in my lifetime. We'll probably lose, but hey, got to be in it to win it...

  15. I can accept you not thinking it was a penalty, but to say there was no contact is just flying in the face of reality.

  23. Jan Mølby does quite a lot of commentating in Denmark. His humor is as dry as the Nevada desert. Last night when one of the italians had cramp his comment was "Yeah players now a days aren't as fit as they were in my time. They can't play all these games". His co-commentator had a small laugh and asked whether it was possible to get a cramp when you spend the entire match inside the centre circle, to which Mølby just replied "I don't know. It was always my teammates who were on the floor crying and whining".

  24. Interview Hartlepool Mail have done with the person who broke the Payero news... The fee mentioned was $8million (£5.8million) which would be out of Boro’s price range, do you believe those figures to be correct? GGG: ““That’s the whole liberation fee. The contract of the player and Banfield’s fee. It’s a four-year contract.” (German later explained he believes the fee would be paid in instalments rather than a one-off sum, yet the initial fee is unknown). If so, when could we expect a deal to be completed this summer? GGG: “I think that maybe not this week, maybe next

  42. pity Danny Murphy is so annoying as a commentator because i really liked him as a player. he was cultured and easy on the eye but has a sinister side with some of his commentary lines. works the other way too cos i really liked Bellamy when punditing. most annoying for me are Darren Bent, Redknapp, Tony Gale and Micah Richards. WHY DO THEY INSIST ON SAYING "LIKE I SAID EARLIER all the time when they clearly havent. plus my pet hate word.....listen. i realise now just how good Andy Gray was.

    • Delighted to see AJ got absolutely battered by Usyk, I've been saying  for weeks that he was severely underestimating his opponent YET AGAIN. He's never going to fight Fury (probably a good thing, Fury would murder him!)

    • While we have a regressive Manager playing regressive football which as you say is the complete opposite to us except that when I actually type it it looks real scary. A regressive Manager playing regressive football. How bad can it get and where is it going to take us?  
    • Our fixtures become interesting after Sheffield United. Away to Hull next Saturday then we have a run of Home games to Peterborough and Barnsley then Away to Cardiff, Warnock's old Club who are struggling (although not quite as bad as ourselves), Home to Birmingham, Away to Luton before we go to the Hawthorns to face the Baggies on the 6th Nov. We then have two consecutive Home games against Millwall and Preston before a trip to Huddersfield on the 27th November. On paper there are some very "winnable" games amongst that lot so would it be fair to let Warnock have that run to save himself and get things back on track or is it too risky to let the performances continue and see those potential points frittered away like we have all year? It could be argued that it would be reasonable to give him those games but the reality is that we are seeing nothing that gives us any reason whatsoever that Warnock has a grip and is going to tun it around. There has been little logic, shape or reason as to how he sets his sides up. Our defence is as poor as I have seen from a Boro side in a long time. If we were solid at the back, keeping clean sheets while boring us to death there would at least be some merit in his thinking but porous doesn't begin to describe us. Our Midfield is a disjointed mess, they cant cover and shield the defence and they can't set up attacking passages of play. They seem to run around chasing back (or more likely chasing their man to mark) after we lose possession or running up chasing long punts, then running back again, then running up again meanwhile adding little of merit or quality. It's clear that it is due to tactics rather than them all being useless (including Howson in fairness). Their passing and ball retention is painful to watch rendering them a weak and ineffective unit regardless of personnel. The fact that we are lamenting the loss of a fairly basic clogger in Morsy illustrates just how desperate we have sunk and how low our expectations now are. Attack? I can only chuckle at the thought of us actually looking like we can attack and record efforts be they on or off target. With just about zero threat or opportunities, bereft of any quality of service we look hopeless.  Ikpeazu can be a real handful and Sporar has class yet neither seem to be effective in a Warnock side.  We have played many teams already with far fewer resources than Warnock has at his disposal and have been found wanting on each and every occasion with the exception of bottom of the table Forest who immediately sacked their Manager. Derby are a basket case and a collection of journeymen players and Rooney's nous (Rooney and nous in the same sentence is something I thought I would never be typing) but they comfortably nullified Warnock. Mark Robbins and Coventry (with their own set of off field issues for years) and limited budget of a side bettered us with ease. Reading with an inexperienced Keeper (not that it mattered as his Kit won't need to have been washed by the end of all that added time), and a defence consisting of midfielders square pegged into a makeshift defence kept us at bay with such ease it was demoralising. Then there was Blackpool and copy and paste. A terrible disorganised Defence, a Midfield that seemingly has a confused purpose and an Attack that rarely if ever threatens leaves me with little reason for optimism. I'm not even sure where to begin in terms of sorting it all out as it is so far off the ideal in every single department that it is scary as to how bad we have become and how likely it is to continue unabated because there are absolutely no signs of something clicking or even just misfiring. It's the dampest of damp squibs. Its like the end of Strachan and Mogga all over, all the signs are glaringly obvious and I suspect the players must think the same despite them being "a smashing bunch of lads really". If SG made a change now it could get worse but by how much? If he doesn't it could get better but again by how much? Weighing everything up I can't see anything to suggest anything but more of the same for the last quarter of the year and by that time we could be lamenting more lost points against mediocre to poor sides and seriously deep in relegation territory. Hull and Peterborough will be looking at their fixtures against us and seeing them as winnable six pointers, this against a side that had the Play Offs as the target only a few weeks back.    
    • Warnock shouldn't abuse referees. But I don't think boro fans should be calling our manager expletives online. It makes us all look silly. I imagine if we beat Sheffield United 3-0 then nobody will be calling him a p**** then. He won't be here much longer.
