Erimus I'm guessing by your username you were born in 1974?

So some of this is before you're time? 

Are you an historian of all things Boro?

No Maccarone, born 1960, the 74 is reference to my favourite season, 1973 - 74 following the Boro

Love finding & posting Boro facts, especially Ayresome Park

Boro flashback - August 8th

We travelled to Edinburgh to play Hearts in the final of our Scottish mini tour, which didn't end well with the Boro on the end of a 3-0 thumping

The game featured the late, great Willie Maddren, who was involved with the 1st team for the 1st time since the 3rd September 1977 after he suffered knee injuries & after operations was named as one of the 4 substitutes

Alan Walsh, one of the other named subs, was named for his final Boro fixture before been released

Willie Maddren didn't play in another Boro fixture, what a great servant & a humble man, a true Boro legend

The Boro team 
Jim Stewart
Ian Bailey
Peter Johnson
John Mahoneys - Sub Craig Johnston
Stuart Boam
Alan Ramage
Graham Headley - Sub Billy Woof
Tony McAndrew
David Shearer - Sub Willie Maddren
Stan Cummins - Sub Alan Walsh
David Armstrong

No1 in the charts - Miss you, the Rolling Stones
Force 10 from Navarone was released

Really like the input and memory recovery features so far Erimus 74 and if this is your regular thing and forte perhaps we should simply have one thread devoted to your contributions of this sort and type of contribution.

Will have to come up with a good thread title something like "Erimus 74's Back in Time thread. Suggestions would be good but I feel one dedicated thread to your input would be good.

I think a sub-forum would be better, "Boro Memories"

Boro flashback 9th August 1975

ASC Qualifying round

Newcastle 2 Boro 2

Boro needed to avoid to defeat to finish top of the group to progress to the K/O stages, the group consisted of Boro, Carlisle, Sunderland & Newcastle 

IIRC a male Newcastle streaker ran on the pitch with the scores still at nil all, he looked like he'd been to Benidorm for his holidays with having white parts where his shorts once were, think he was wearing his socks ??

With the distraction over Newcastle scored 1st, Boro equalised through Alan Willey, took the lead through David Armstrong only for Newcastle to equalise, Boro had secured the point needed & progressed to the knock out stage, were we would play Aberdeen in the ASC QF 

Boro team
Pat Cuff
John Craggs
Ian Bailey
Graeme Souness
Stuart Boam
Tony McAndrew
Peter Brine
David Mills - Sub Malcolm Smith
Alan Willey

    • And who is responsible for the players' terrible attitude and performances? Granted the players have to take some personal responsibility, but ultimately the buck stops with the manager. Funny how he neglects to say anything about that.  
    • Mowbray would be your man. Karanka is too much of a control freak.
    • Can’t see Akpom being in the squad. 
    • Its hard to know fully what the consequences of something like that would be. The Premier league product without the big 6 would not be as desirable to TV companies especially overseas, there's no doubt about that.  Obviously then the income of every other club would drop and big name players would move on.  Commercially it would probably be a bad idea but wouldn't it be great if sporting competition and integrity were put above that.   
    • I certainly think it's an interesting thing to consider, if we broke off from them or simply banned them from competing alongside us until they put this stupid idea to bed, how the broadcasters would react. Who would they follow? Sky, for example, right now are protecting the Premier League with all the power they can. It's beneficial for them to do that. But if we split from those 6 and they had the opportunity of buying into what those clubs do next or just sticking by the Premier League and the EFL, what would they do? It seems like it should be an easy answer, follow the clubs with the money, follow the potential viewing figures they would generate. But is it as simple as that? I'm not so sure.
