Social Media Channel


Recommended Posts

All,

What's everyone's thoughts on potentially creating a Oneboro channel show on social media such as Facebook? Similar to BorofanTV, Redarmy TV etc.

There is a lot of good posters on here with excellent opinions so I was thinking it would be brilliant opportunity to bring us all together and really show off the forum to the Middlesbrough fan base and further a field public.

A weekly show would give enough material for viewing public to digest and the channel wouldn't grow to be tiresome imo.

I am happy to be part of the channel, but I'd rather not be the lead asking the questions ūüėāūüĎć

Imo probably best not to do the show on Saturday night straight after a game as people's opinions are usually in the heat of moment.

Anybody interested in this idea?

It's a nice idea, but in my experience, an initial rush of enthusiasm tends to give way to apathy. Plus, as @YusufBoro has found to his cost, well-meaning social media projects can trigger trolling that can demotivate everyone involved.

However, I'm all in favour of any project that elevates OB's public awareness, especially if it stops people visiting platforms like COB, which hardly shows Boro fans in a good light.

Think we've tried this before, but I'd be interested if we could get enough interest from elsewhere!

That's excellent news.

If we could find someone who would be willing to 'Host' the show who is non-biased and see's the fans opinions as well as the clubs, then i think that would give us a excellent platform to work with.

I thought one of the admins would be up for this sort of thing as they do excellent job admining the forum and it could put this forum on the map which could lead to better things.

Yeah i agree, but i am sure there is some regular posters on here would like to give their opinion on a greater scale without the worry of the back lash.

Yusuf, is doing a cracking job at promoting the fan base opinions and we should be encouraging more fans to do what hes doing atm.

As always get the one idiot regardless of having a show or opinion on here.

I'd be very interested too. Maybe we can get a zoom meeting set up to discuss things further? 

Yeah that sounds good to me.

Just need to find someone who would be interested in hosting the channel

@Red Rocket and @Tom have always done a good job in that respect. It would be a good way for RR to keep connected to all things Boro when she emigrates too. I know Tom's done some good work with Neil Grainger in the past. Might be a good idea if you could draft him into the equation. I'm sure Yusuf would be keen to contribute.

Same thoughts as you Matt, mentioned this to DL when he got in touch about the subject.

Needs solid thinking and commitment though could be good fun, we need a host who comes over with a touch of refinement and lots of self confidence so CT shoud do nicely!

One thing I quite enjoyed doing was live tweeting an away day on behalf of OneBoro. I think it was Wolves and Monks first game. Only problem was that the signal died as soon as I got in to Molineux. Might give all forums members an opportunity to be involved and it can be a little less 'invasive' than a podcast etc.

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong,¬†but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look¬†stifled and¬†devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward,¬†the striker¬† with the best heading ability¬†is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had¬†a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.¬†¬†
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s¬†by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham¬†and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch,¬†I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term¬†and¬†long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person.¬†People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp¬†agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that¬†he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him ‚Äúunprofessionally‚Ä̬†upon¬†leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh¬†that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
