  1. I think what is being overlooked here with Karanka is that he was clearly working his ticket and had been for some time. To me it was a clear case of wanting to be sacked and some of his public utterances essentially 'encouraged' Steve Gibson to do just that. He spoke of his frustration with transfer targets; "I gave them my list one and a half months ago and here we are one week to go and nothing" or words to that effect. He fell out with the fans, players, coaches, the medical staff, the Chief Exec. and finally the Chairman. Who can forget is indignant reaction to the crowd chanting 'attack, attack, attack' when 2-1 down at home to West Ham. The fans wanted a point out of the game while he didn't want to concede another and lose 3-1. When he was finally let go, Gibson commented that 'it had come as a relief to Karanka'. He was shot. My only frustration is that it wasn't done earlier and with a plan in place which did not include promoting Steve Agnew.
  2. Well he's not going anywhere and neither is Woodgate according to this. https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/steve-gibson-exclusive-middlesbroughs-relegation-17841031.amp
  3. After the Leeds game the BBC Tees guy said something along the lines of 'Steve Gibson is always welcome to come on the station to speak to the fans'. Something like that anyway but I sensed that invitations had been made in the past but not taken up.
  4. I remember 3 or 4 seasons ago the club did trial a couple of nice Theakstons beers in one of the North Stand concourse pop-up bars. Both were part of the 'season card free pint' deal but the trial wasn't continued for whatever reason.
  5. Call me picky but the spelling of Forest is incorrect in the topic title 😆
  6. He'd walk straight back in to Liverpool's set up surely. You know, where he was so highly regarded.
  7. Oh dear George. He must be set for the knackers yard.
  8. From December 2007:- Steve Gibson has turned the knife on Steve McClaren by insisting he is happier to have Gareth Southgate in charge at Middlesbrough. The Middlesbrough chairman launched a scathing attack on the former England head coach. He said: "If Steve said to me the grass is green, I would go out and check. He can be charming but he had this streak of ambition that was absolutely bloody ruthless. "You can't go through life trying to achieve your ambitions at the expense of others. "We shake hands when we meet but he's never been back since he left and he's not on my Christmas card list. "We never want to get into that situation again, I don't want a guy who is always thinking about the next rung on the ladder. He just saw us as a stepping stone and if you can make enemies at a club like ours, you're going to be in trouble when things go wrong." Gibson gave unequivocal backing to Southgate, adding: "I gave Gareth a five-year contract because I wanted him to have the time to take a much longer-term view of the club."
  9. Why would Britt go to Burnley to try and push through a deal to Forest? 😁
  10. Boro's will be 3rd Party, Fire & Theft no doubt 😂
  11. I recall, for a very short period period admittedly, Boro did publish transfer fees when they were permitted to i.e. the selling/buying club did not object. This was more to spite/correct the Evening Gazette more than anything.
  12. The number of times a Fulham player has kicked the ball away after we've been awarded a free kick is astonishing. No sanction from the ref on any occasion 😡
  13. Did he not score a header away to Brentford last season?
