  2. Chuffed for Morrison there! Cracking goal! Come on Boro (former youth players obviously...) Felt like I celebrated that goal as a British person- really don't care who wins.
  3. Gutted that Downing has signed for West Ham. :dodgy: One of the best players I've seen in a Boro shirt (started watching in the 90's), and one of my favourites has signed for a club I cannot abide. It's a sad day for football...£5m is an absolute bargain for a player of his quality IMO. Wish him the best of luck though and hope he gets an England recall playing for a team that finishes in the bottom three!

  6. I like him and on his day I genuinely think he's our best player. (My name is nothing to do with his by the way... just a coincidence that I'm quite pleased with)
  7. I'm sharing your optimism here! I think that on there day, these are good players that should do very well for us. Hopefully next season will be ours! But if not, theres always the one after... C'MON BORO!!!!
  8. I'd happily take Wheater, Graham and Hazard. Not sure how realistic that is, just saying I'd be happy if it happened! :D
  9. It certainly would! Do you think Hoyte is better than Cox though? Thinking back, I can't see it ever happening again that a former England and Man Utd captain as big a name as Robson was at the time, would go into management with a second tier team. I hope I'm wrong and I might well be, but I can't see the likes of Terry, Lampard or Gerrard moving into player management with an equivalent club of our stature back in 94/95...
  10. Yeah Blackmore was free... And Pearson was only 500k. Seems I've added a bit due to inflation since 1995
  11. I remember when we signed Neill Cox for £1m from Villa and Pearson £750k from Sheff Wed. I was really excited about signing players I'd never heard of. I think we got Clayton Blackmore for £300k too- He was an underrated player.
  12. I'd be pleased if we got Danny Graham. I hoped we'd get him in January and I haven't changed my mind!
  13. I'm in! Always wondered what it was all about, guess I'm about to find out...
  14. ^ This, this and this again! Well said Coxswain!! UTB
  15. Not sure if I'm allowed to do this, but I was wondering if anyone objects to me asking for Great North Nun sponsorship. I've been a member for a while and a Boro fan for life. I wouldn't normally put this on a forum but this is a special case. I'm hoping to raise a lot of money for the Percy Hedley Foundation, specifically the school part where I am a teacher. There's a bit of a financial crisis there at the moment and staff will be losing 20% of their wages in some cases. Which will have an impact on the pupils, all of whom have special needs. We need to maintain a high quality of provision
  16. 18 goals last season in an uncreative team and injured, yet still playing, for half the season. We need to keep him! I'd be chuffed to bits if Emnes stayed. That's all.
  17. Jp, a taxi from Newcastle to Boro will be about £60 at least. If you're getting one straight from the airport, even more. You'd be better off getting in a few days early, walking to Hartlepool and getting the bus!
  18. I like Hulk. Might even say he's incredible. Plus he'd match the ramsdens sponsor quite nicely. Get him signed on!

    Ipswich tickets

    It's better than um-boro-ella.
  20. I assume you were watching the same game as Martin O'Neill. No I think if we'd had more going forward we would've spanked them easily. No way were they better.
  21. Forgot to say: Tony McMahon was awesome! How anyone questions him is beyond me. And he was at right midfield! Great player.
  22. Really enjoyed the game tonight. Shame about the result. Too many backwards passes 1st half and bad 1st touches. Young players looked composed, reach in particular. Pleased with Main's contribution though Emnes was poor- must be injured! Hoyte is no good. We deserved more. Penalties would've been fair I think. Looking good for the future though! UTB!!!!!!!!
  23. Spot on Xathras. Totally agree.
