  1. This is something that always floats around as an idea - we did some nice stuff previously with a podcast (although very short lived) and Tom and Humpty did some nice video bits. It would be interesting to try and do something different to those that already do these things. Red Army TV, Boro Fan TV, Boro Breakdown etc. I would actually prefer a post match opinion - raw is always more exciting and interesting. Its where Arsenal Fan TV really made its name. Boro Fan TV do a bit of it though. I am happy to be involved, although not a particularly active member of the forum, having mo
  2. It’s gone well the last months, but we’re not out of the woods yet. Still a lot to do and Woodgate has almost been forced into the way we’re playing. At the end of January if things are still looking bright and we’ve moved up the table - then we can start to be enthusiastic!
  3. Welcome to the Official oneBoro Match Day Thread for the EFL Championship fixture between Middlesbrough and Hull City. Boro currently find themselves in the bottom 3 of the Championship without a win in 7 league matches... that win against Reading seems an awfully long time ago... well that's because it was! Hull find themselves middle of the pile in 12th having won 3 of their last 5, the wins coming away to Fulham and Forest whilst beating Derby at home. These sides have met 52 times previously in the league - Boro winning 25, 14 in Hulls favour and 13 draws - Boro will need to a
  4. Possibly, but I think people will need to give us good value. Same goes for any player. I think Randoloh, McNair and possibly Wing are the only players who's get any interest
  5. Playing with Pears on the bench.. looks like you're a bit wrong
  6. The positives: We won, Britt scored... The negatives: We looked disjointed, players lacking confidence and form, system still not right, were lucky not to concede. Still 3 points though... Maybe the first brick of this season's foundations. Another home game to come, a positive start against Millwall and it could start to look a little better... COULD
  7. You've got a point CT, it's been a tough thing to commentate on..
  8. Could be Dorset or Kent.. if at all either of the Gillinghams
  9. Sadly only a few games were recorded. I'll have a look to see what I can dig up once I'm fully established back down here. My Mac is currently in a box under a bed ?
  10. I'm sure he is, I've followed a few commentators careers and being biased on local radio hasn't stopped the best rising to the top. I'm led to believe Ali turned down moves up the ladder as he only wanted to commentate on the Boro. He was also the reason why so many of our games were picked for 5live/sports extra in his days when nothing else was on. Because the standard was high.
  11. I do agree, far from the worst commentary team we've had to listen to following the Boro. Addo is a decent presenter and the trio thing works. Bernie had his time, it worked well as the Yang to Ali's Ying. Higgy was good too - far more tactical awareness in his comments.
  12. My problem with Mark Drury is it feels like he's commentating for a bigger aim - like it's a constant 5live audition. It's not what people generally want from a local radio commentator. Nothing wrong with a bit of bias - his only audience is Teesside and those willing to pay MFC - get less excited when the oppo score
  13. BBC Tees have a perfectly good commentator.. just a shame it's Rob Law and not Mark 'I love a cliche and club nickname and talk about anything but the game' Drury I don't think I'd go down too well either, with my southern accent and all.. long commute too as back in the land of over priced houses ?
  14. Essentially, yes. I'd like to think with none of the nonsense that you often get with radio commentaries. I describe exactly what's happening, very little time for fluffy stuff. It's more like the original radio commentaries before personality started to get in the way of things ?
  15. Spent the last two seasons working for the club as their audio descriptive commentator for blind and partially sighted supporters... Best job ever, despite having to put up with Pulisball ?
  16. Some great logic here - can't argue with any of it
  17. I'm with Jimmy, let McNair sit. I think he's got more in the tank than Howson energy wise and also has more defensive qualities having played right back and center back through large parts of his time at Man Utd.
  18. The next penalty is tricky.. it could be a while waiting for it too. Ideally it comes when we've got a decent (2+ goals) advantage in a game and the scoring of it isn't vital. If that's the case, Britt takes it for me. If it's 90+ mins and the game is level, my thought process might be different... Tricky game this, we need to improve as a pressing unit, were still half doing it leaving space at times. Randolph Dijksteel - Ayala - Friend - Coulson Howson - McNair - Wing Johnson - Britt - Fletcher Is how I'd go. Clayton looks a bit lost in the press
  19. Saturday 17th August 2019 - 3pm KO - Ewood Park Preview: Both sides come into this fixture following home league cup fixtures against lower league opposition - Blackburn oversaw a battling Oldham side 3:2, whilst Boro only turned up for the last 15 minutes against Crewe and were knocked out on penalties. Blackburn have a host of familiar faces in their employment with Tony Mowbray has several ex-Boro players in his ranks including; Harry Chapman, Danny Graham, Richie Smallwood, Stewart Downing and Jayson Leutwiler. There is a decent 5 a-side team in there! Both sides have
  20. The incident DZ mentions has been shared with mods and being dealt with.
  21. Right all, enough of the derailing in various ways. Things that have been posted/sent have been dealt with. Let's keep things on the game, respect opinions and not lower the tone or post potentially discriminatory things - no need on a football forum. Let's keep it civil and polite.
  22. Sounds like a great first half, more of the same and we should have the quality to put a chance or two away. Keep the high press and tight at the back. Come on Boro.. 3 points please
  23. I don't think we've weakened our squad with the outgoings (bar Mikel who we were never going to keep), but I am not sure we've strengthened either. We've made good additions, who have potential. We've kept our best players and we still have a strong spine, but our depth just isn't there in key areas. We are going to rely heavily on Randolph, Fry, Ayala and Britt. More worrying is our hopes of Wing doing it week in week out. I think we just about have a first 11 that can push for playoffs, lose 2 or more and were hoping for top half. One thing for sure, this season's footbal
  24. Quality can't be confused with quantity ???
