  1. Happy Father’s Day to all the Boro lads that are dads, that have dads, that are going to become dads or maybe lost your dad over the years. ❤️

  2. The name gave me suspicions but what gave it away was his wild calamitous misjudgement in coming for the ball in the 95th minute. I knew it was you Brad

  4. Be proud and be strong. It does hurt but never forget that he's a dad and you're a grandad. Always say her name and never ever forget her. You never will. I am a proud dad of 4 beautiful children even if one is an angel. Be strong and remember that people around will always care. Much love and support. Trekkers xxxxxxx

  5. I'm surprised that Gestede has actually managed 178 games in his career so I just checked and according to Wiki he has managed 284 games over his entire career which for a 32 year old isn't many. Smith at three years younger has played 410 games so at least he may be available for selection instead of sending in a sick note. They both seem to have a 1:4 ratio which isn't great but much more useful if fit and available and that's before we consider the respective costs involved for fees and wages.

  6. There was an astonishing story in the Guardian about why Magath bombed at Fulham, shortly after he left. It sounds like we dodged a bullet by not appointing him. https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2014/sep/20/fulham-farewell-magath-felix-madcap That said, it's extremely narrow-minded and parochial to dismiss a German manager because he'd supposedly turn the town of Middlesbrough into an enclave of ze Faterland. Wonder what changed in the run-up to Aitor's arrival?

  7. Thats why I can never like or support Italy. They're ridiculously good footballers...but they even put our PL teams to shame when it comes to "simulation", time-wasting etc. Going down like they've been shot the moment an opponent comes anywhere near them. Disgusting...and they've always been like this, even going back to the 90s.

  8. bloody hell smith is a late bloomer isnt he. his first 30+ game season was only 3 seasons ago. looks like hes only been first choice for the last 3 years and has an average record in champo games; 45-8, 34-9, 44-10. actually thats not bad at all when you think about it, hes playing for rotherham not brentford. he is a respectable champo targetman and probably a really shrewd signing.

  9. I cannot sleep .. It's just football, but my mind is 95 % on the game tomorrow ... Win it, and Denmark are through to the knock outs. My God I hope we can carry on the great play from the Belgium game! I can't help but feeling a little history repeating here .. In 1984 .. Allan Simonsen broke his leg in the opening game ... But Denmark, not only the players, but the whole nation sent him get well letters ... Hell, All the players even recorded a get well song, which was broadcast on national TV .. Denmark lost the semi final v Spain on pennalties .. Preben Elkjær, missed

  10. I thought the same but was speaking to my Pools supporting mate and they love they GK who is injured and seem to think if James did return he would not get a game.

  11. I reckon we might send Brad James back there, see if he can hack League 2 before possibly returning as our second choice keeper when we're in League One next season

  12. I'm clearly seeing a different football match. I'm seeing a side with skill and ability cheating and diving at every opportunity. That they are clearly a class above and have no need to do that is shameful. There is no disputing their talent but the cheating aspect along with a very weak Referee is making me nauseous. Better Referees in this tournament would wave a few of those "challenges" on letting the game flow and letting the Italians know that they need to win by playing football not winning free kicks.

  13. The Gibson 'bashing' is very little about his actual monetary investment from what I've seen. I know some will always hark back to times when we spent a lot of money in the transfer market and not see that we can't do that any more but that definitely doesn't seem to be the overwhelming anti-Gibson narrative, certainly not on this forum. It's more about Gibson's control and decision making with the money he has and has had. He's not a modern football director but he, Bausor and one or two others at any one time often seem like they try to operate as such. There's a reason in the modern ga

  14. I forgot that name altogether but this is from Vickers a few years ago. According to this, the Bayern manager wasn't just linked, he applied and his application was binned. And here's one of his 'Untypical Boro' articles to expand on that: https://untypicalboro.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/mittleburg-am-r/

  15. True, but you'd think that with what he was saving in the transfer market, he'd be a little smarter about who he appointed as manager, or at least get some competent back-up for a rookie manager facing a tough challenge.

  16. After all he went through at Burnley, I'm very chuffed for him. I hope he makes the step up to the top level again and bangs in a last minute winner at Turf Moor and gives Dyche the Callum McManaman treatment.

  17. Funny response this from gibbo, but more just wanted to point out all the incredibly positive things the Norwich fans have to say about him under the replies. Absolutely delighted that he's found a home where he's as loved as he was (and still is) here

  18. Really poignant for me this. My eldest son's partner had to give birth to their first child yesterday even though she had passed away in the womb on friday. Tragic and devastating for us all but the way in which he has handled himself in the last few days is incredible. So whilst it hurts like hell, a very proud father.
