  1. Happily take that 2m from the sell on clause. Hopefully that's actually invested next summer.
  2. Great academy, excellent training facilities, modern stadium, passionate fans who would come back in numbers if we even experienced a tiny bit of success. I don't think we're that bad of a prospect for a takeover. We're only in the position we're in due consistent failures by Steve Gibson and his lack of ability to adapt to modern football. The game has changed massively in the past 10 years and we haven't transitioned well at all.
  3. I'd love a Red Bull takeover to be honest. Imagine our current academy with extra investment and a bigger scouting network. We'd have one of the best academies in Europe. Red Bull would bring investment to the area and the club, as well as bringing the fans back. They'd probably be able to lower ticket prices to make it more affordable for fans as a repayment for losing some of our identity. Our fans would soon stop caring about the loss of identity if we were in a similar exciting situation as say Wolves are now. With the resources they have, they could probably invest in the area and bring extra jobs and opportunities to Middlesbrough as well. Also every other club in England would hate us and that would bring a feeling of a united Boro even more, us against the world. Of course this is never gonna happen but a man can dream 🙃
  4. I'm from the future. Boro beat Wigan 2-1 with Britt scoring.
  5. But every now and then he scores an absolute banger to make up for it 😅 His shooting is unreal. EDIT: and we ruined it....
  6. Easily one of our most overrated players, his decision making is just woeful.
  7. Assuming we get Ravel Morrison then I'm happy with our window. Any more signings after that are just a bonus.
  8. I knew our board was incompetent but surely they never gave Dimi that much money?!
  9. Watched Bong Joon Ho's new movie 'Parasite' last night and it was absolutely class. First korean movie to be nominated for an oscar (and there's been some gems over the years). Would recommend anyone to watch it, cinematography is beautiful and one scene absolutely shook me up.
  10. In my opinion I think Dijksteel was always signed to play in midfield
  11. I genuinely don't believe that Randolph rumour. Obviously I could be wrong but he's always come across as so professional and a decent bloke. Club know they can save A LOT of money with him leaving and since Pears has looked good it's a no brainer for the board.
  12. Looking forward to this. Got a feeling Son is gonna absolutely destroy us though.
  13. Excited for the rest of the season now we have Roberts. Really hope we don't sell Randolph. I think he genuinely likes it here and he's been absolute class these past seasons. Pears is decent but still untested, if we did make the playoffs I'd much rather have Randolph for those games alone. Understand we need the money though, would probably rather see Britt leave (even though I'm a fan).
  14. Are you able to watch this BD? Yeah. Riverside Live via the website. We haven’t really been close to the penalty box. Nothing to fear for Leeds as we are always outnumbered. They haven’t been much better though. isn't that just audio?
  15. On the basis of this game I don’t really understand this. We’re away to probably the most inform team in the league who’s top scorers in the league and our preparation has been scuppered by Braithwaite this week. We have almost nullified Leeds this half. A point is good and we will get chances to nick a point. We’ve had a few already. What don't you understand? I hate the way he sets his teams up. I hate the players he picks [i loved Downing /until 2009]. I hate the fact he stumbles on winning players and formations [but doesn't stick with them]. I hate the pragmatism of it all. We have 13 points out of 15. We just played a blinder of a half against Leeds away from home. I wasn't a big Pulis fan but none of these points are valid at the moment, you can't take some results from last season into consideration cause it wasn't really his season/squad.
  16. We looked really good, we absolutely controlled that first half. Second half we still looked solid, although West Brom definitely got back into the game more. Referee made some dodgy calls for both teams but overall I think we genuinely deserved that Ayala goal at the end. Clayton gets criticism but he was really great tonight, same with Howson.
  17. Can't blame this loss on that moment. This is all on Tony Pulis, we were negative at HOME in a playoff semi final tie, we barley created any chances or even looked like scoring. Bruce has tactically outclassed Pulis tonight, we relied on Traore too much all season and Bruce put a lot of pressure on him, without him we had no spark. Just can't believe Pulis' overall game management here, he was so negative when we needed a goal. I knew from the starting line-up we weren't gonna score tonight.
  18. Can't believe this game management by Pulis so far, how are we still so negative?!
  19. They're going to score and end this tie soon if we don't make a sub.
