  1. Has anybody’s account been credited yet with the 4 game refund? Looking to renew ST but just waiting for it to show first.
  2. Keane talking on Soccer AM about lockdown and Boro. https://youtu.be/Vy8U6Cr46Ww
  3. I think but not 100%, they have built and now moved into a house near Manchester.
  4. Sorry found it.... If anyone else is also interested:
  5. Well I'm thinking if the Early discount is after the 4th April that will be good as they will have to issue something once this first delay gets extended. Until it's confirmed no football will be played after the 3rd April I guess we might not hear too much.
  6. Does anyone know what the Early Bird ST deadline is? I'm sure it's April but can't seem to find it. Be also interesting if they still enforce it!
  7. Team News / Injury Update: Manager - A lot is being said that Woody is playing out his last few days as Middlesbrough manager. Could a not too horrendous display against Leeds and a win against Forest actually salvage his job - Majority of fans hope not! Crowd watch on the West Stand for any noticeable 'defensive' figures. Tav - Outcry to put Tavernier back into the starting team from fans following the last 3 games didn't amount too much against Leeds, as he didn't put in the best of displays on the night - A subject up for debate Friend - George looks injured following the Leeds game, a player we certainly respect but believe he shouldn't be getting a start so probably for the best. Fletcher - Another player who will now likely be injured for this fixture. This will see a few changes hopefully for the better against Forest. Roberts Update - Looking like end of March for his return which can't come soon enough Ayala - Returning soon with us expected to see him probably for the next vital Boro home game against Swansea on 14th March. View from the other side: A detailed opening post on the fans forum - http://www.forestforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=48611 Questions: 1) Prediction? 2) Do you see a draw as any point is good at the minute, or a win a must due to the current standings 3) Expecting Britt to start, can he actually have a decent game for once against his former team? 4) Putting aside our circumstance, if Leeds & Forest are promoted, will you actually be more or less interested in PL next season? I.e. watching occasions with these teams rather than teams we are less inclined about such as Watford, Bournemouth, Southampton etc. (Hope that makes sense) "Back Stronger" 😉
  8. Yeah he has some sort of media / journalism degree and said in an interview last year he would like to pick that up when he retires from football.
  9. Words from Leo last night .... Certainly very passionate.... I like the comments enforcing he is assistant coach not GK coach and that he always shows good discipline 😄 "After I watched the interview with Mr Clotet, the, Birmingham City manager, after the game; I noticed he mentioned my person, with a misinformation. I feel wronged to have anything untrue said about me. Let me be clear, I didn’t even raise one hand. This is why I want to express my thoughts. You can say anything you want, that is a human right, and I respect that. However, when questioned in the interview about your own goalkeeper shouting for help, a response was given that the goalkeeper was not being watched. Surely, given our bench, and the Birmingham city keeper himself was shouting for help, somebody must have noticed. If not, I apologise. I was trying to protect my player, as is always my number one priority. After Tavernier got a head injury, players of both teams called with urgency for the team doctor and for first aid. The game was still in play, and our team doctor and physiotherapist were running into the field to give the necessary assistance, as is common practice with a head injury. The referee blew his whistle before the goal was scored - therefore the opposition team scored a disallowed goal. Mr Clotet went over the throw-in line to celebrate the winning goal, when Tavernier is still getting first aid assistance. Then is when I reacted, coming to telling Birmingham manager; "Respect, stop the celebration, look how bad is him on the field" I want to make this very clear; in 14 years as a staff member in my career, this my first red card. My good discipline teaches me how to behave with challenging situations when I think I am not met with the same respect. Even if I was spat at, there’s no reaction. I didn't throw any punches as was said. Also I'm not the goalkeeping coach of Middlesbrough, I’m assistant coach, and as coaches, we have to be aware of what is happening on the entire field, and not only where the ball is. Player safety of both teams is always of utmost importance. I will be making no further comment on this matter, and I welcome Birmingham staff at any time and wish them well for the remainder of the season. I hope you understand why I needed to put my side of the story. Because at the end of the day, life will always come before football passion."
  10. If this has any truth in it then would stop Leeds interest in Britt.... Surely not another 32Red job 🤨 https://www.motforum.com/article.php?page=38850
  11. Best ref decision 😬 .... Granted it was a red card tbf (1:20)
  12. I agree, or if it was the other way and we drew at Spurs, it would have been a good home replay for the fans to look forward to instead. The buzz of the FA cup is a big one for a lot of clubs and as you state majority of fans away from the PL top 6 would be overjoyed to get to the final let alone win the FA cup in their lifetime. I think from the 5th round the replay has actually been abolished this year to free up league fixtures which was brought forward from it's proposal of starting next year instead.
  13. Not sure how much that will matter against FFP if they are receiving his full wage as extra revenue from the sponsorship anyway. I presume it just cancels it out?
  14. I'm going for 2-2 for this game (yes we will score 2!). Just think both teams have struggles but it's a Friday night home game so hopefully that spurs us on. I think Britt & Fletcher starting upfront is likely as he was nearing fitness last week. Can see the 5th minute support for Leo being an emotional one for him and is a nice touch on his horrendous anniversary... Let's reward him with a goal in the same minute 😥
  15. Thought this was interesting..... Championship table at the start of the decade. I can't believe where some of these teams are now! Also that it was that long ago we got relegated alongside Newcastle and West Brom with them bouncing straight back-up with Blackpool 😮. Ironically forgot that in 2009, while we were being relegated from the PL, Norwich and Southampton dropped into League 1.
  16. When I seen it back I thought it could even get extended to 5 games as it's that bad for me. Only saving grace will be if any truth in the ref actually giving it for a stamp and where we stand on that.
  17. Not as serious as first thought and remains 50/50 for the game. Woodgate stating he won't risk him if he isn't 100% fit.
  18. I can see us getting a draw (hopefully) from this game which I would see as a very decent away result. Britt likely not to feature or at least start the game, so the team is going to be set-up very similar to the Forrest game. We could possibly see Johnson starting ahead of Coulson and Wing replacing Saville.
  19. I've just watched it back as well and think it definitely looks like a penalty... Plus reading the Forest forum they believe it was awarded correctly mostly blaming Robinson for a very poor challenge. Credit to McNair as both the defense splitting pass and penalty are spot on!
  20. Ha I thought everyone myself included would be more excited on the back of a win. I agree with everything you said. Same formation/team with Gestede in if Britt is injured. I do have slightly more optimism however currently believing we could get 2-1 from this game if we can keep Grabben quiet.
  21. Match-day Thread - Nottingham Forest V's Middlesbrough Sorry but the superstitious side of me insisted I must proceed with the newspaper format once again 🙂 View from the other side: Forest Banter - http://www.forestforum.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=6&s=eaaf59d3d33b909aea2fee8234d5c5a4 Vital Forest - https://forums.vitalfootball.co.uk/threads/prediction-league-game-23-forest-v-middlesboro.100669/ (Prediction's) Questions: 1) Match Result? 2) With Britt seeing leaving on crutches after the Charlton game - Do we keep the same formation and if so, does Gestede or Walker start? 3) Adomah back facing the Boro in a Forest shirt. Money aside, would you have him back in January? 4) Best debut you have seen?
  22. Really pleased to get a win as the match day author, seems it’s in privileged supply so far this season 😁 Main points from the game for me: • As already said Wing Backs made such a difference today! Offered an outlet continuously and provided decent width, attacking and deference play. Yes it wasn’t perfect 100% of the time but Coulson and Spence both did very well and offered a good balance to the team. •Personally feel Clayton did ok.... Numerous times both him and Ayala seemed very vocal organising the team. •To go ahead so early and hold onto that lead for 90 minutes isn’t easy! Yes we should have sealed it with the 2nd but still a positive. •Space and interlink between Fletcher and Britt is so much better now. They don’t run into the same lines anymore giving each other clear space. Think it was 30-35 minutes on the counterattack they split perfectly as they ran forward to receive the ball. Lots of positives for me. I’ll get the Forest Match day thread up ASAP.
  23. Don’t worry it says it in really small print at the top...... In white 😉
