  1. Oi - leave off Clinton,. His honesty and sense of self-deprecating humour are a refreshing change from the other so called pundits. Very few, apart from Gary Neville, come across as having any real depth of knowledge.
  2. Scotland has 4 big clubs ? A one horse league and the horse has gone lame.
  3. I can see the converstaion now. "Mr Gibson how about Kean Bryan a good young defender from Sheffield United." "He's not a centre midfielder then Neil." "Naah" "Are you sure Neil " "Well he can play there" Gibbo shakes head in disbelief and walks off.
  4. I love transfer thread cycles. Every time we are linked with someone good: Day 1 Immense excitement Day 2 If we want him then he will go to someone else Day 3 How can we possibly afford him, we are meant to be broke Day 4 Definitely a Gibson signing, Warnock won't want to play him Day 5 We won't get a work permit Day 6 Why haven't we signed him, Bausor is useless Day 7 Signs for a much bigger club and everone agress he was useless all the time and would never have fitted in to our style of play And repeat ...............
  5. People are worried abot Warnock's influence on the juniors, I'd be more worried about Lee Cattermole's influence.
  6. Everton have also released Josh King. Probably wouldnt come or we couldn't afford his wages but would be great at this level. Never mind dreaming back to being rejected by league 1 journeymen.
  7. Yeah he can keep the seat warm until Roy Hodgson comes out of retirement after Steve Gibson says he is the manager he has always wanted for the Boro.
  8. I don't hate him but I do expect more from him for his £1.3 million salary than a couple of laughs with Shearer
  9. If the BBC had any guts they would get rid of the terrible crew that inhabit Match of the Day and appoint her in Lineker's place. I tuned in at half time of the cup final and the puerile chat was worse than a conversation in the pub after a day on the beer. Gary Lineker and his "mates" are well out of their time and so full of their own self importance. And that comes from a 64 year old.
  10. The politicising of football boards was the single biggest reason for me forsaking another well known Boro fan forum. I much prefer the largely saner people that inhabit this forum. Hopefully we can keep this forum clear of the murky world of politics, both local and national unless they directly have an effect on our club.
  11. Sorry but there is little chance that the savings in wages will 100% be reinvested in new players. Our ongoing looses are too high.
  12. Sadly there is a big difference between clubs bidding £5million and us willing to listen to bids above that figure.
  13. on behalf of the hard of seeing I thank you Agricolan Reed
  14. Can't forget that season it was my first supporting the Boro. Over 50 years later I still haven't learnt my lesson UTB
