We are such a depressing fan base, we should add a signature to each post with the contact details for Samaritans

I get we have had a poor few years but isn't football meant to be a distraction to the ills of the world

Samaritans put the phone down when you identify yourself as a Boro fan!

What is the current situation regarding the "flair" South American signings we are all hoping to arrive at MFC.

To be honest I always think that if we have not captured the player within the first fortnight of declaring an interest then it never seems to happen.

The two lads already mentioned might just might come to Middlesbrough on holiday

Muniz is probably going to fulham it seems. Probably be more news tonight. Payero deal has small financial complications according to Warnock, should be sorted though. The other South American signings no one even knows the names of. Lazaro has been mentioned, but only by an itk not any media reports iirc

To be fair, in the last few years on here, a fair few people have fallen out of love with it, especially those who spend a lot of money to watch it every other week and have had to put up with Pulis, Woodgate and Warnock. It's more like a bad addiction than a distraction at times.

The saga continues.... We have gone in with improved offer hoping that Flamengo pull out of negotiations with Fulham!

Fulham offering player around 25-30k a week where ours is believed to be just under 20k.

Fulham will just match whatever we throw at them, like earlier

For an untested 20 year old with very little first team experience, that seems like a very dangerous gamble for us.

Think they are worrying about ffp. Might not be able to match us for much longer

At some point they can't afford to, not without selling. It's why they're trying to do so many offers as loans with obligations.

I do get that I really do but a hint of Ali Brownlee optimism wouldn't go amiss now and again

I'm guessing more upfront and smaller instalments in exchange for a lower sell on %.

I feel that some of the people who fall out of love with Boro, do so because they don't manage their own expectations.

At this point before last season, we had signed Grant Hall, whilst losing Friend, Ayala, Shotton, Gestede, Morrison, Pears and Clayton plus the loanees.

We didn't make a second signing until the day before the opening game.

This time we've lost Johnson, Fletcher, Assombalonga, Mendez-Laing, Archer, Saville, Wing and the loanees, but have already brought in 5 replacements with more on the way, the season doesn't start for another 11 days and the transfer window doesn't shut for well over a month.

We're in a much more stable place than the start of last season financially too.

Yes but its the quality or lack of it we have brought in so far that worries me. Would not of been bothered on jot if we had not signed any of the players we have so far.

    • What information would make people change their minds? How about gay role models, who have public platforms to share their stories and lifestyles which were unavailable in the 1960s? How about incontrovertible scientific evidence that old assumptions about homosexuality (it's a perversion, it can be cured, etc) were wrong, making it easy to debunk those inaccurate old stereotypes? How about evidence of the damage homophobia can cause on both a personal and societal level? You're right that religion plays a big part in these matters, but ignorance is a bigger problem. Nobody had the internet when homosexuality was outlawed in the UK, or a thousand public platforms for debating right and wrong with people from all over the world. Every nation's citizens lived in relative ignorance, largely believing what they were told by their elders and betters. The Saudis still have to, because their internet is censored centrally. If they could access the same panoply of information we can, I suspect the majority would at least question or even soften their attitudes towards same-sex relationships, even if their religion will always prevent them embracing it. Instead, the Saudis are only allowed to access content their government has approved. Their government disapproves of homosexuality, so that's the only version of the truth people get to see. Lack of information = lack of knowledge = lack of tolerance. Apologies to the mods: I know we're way off topic here.
    • When Bryan English joined from Chelsea. He's since gone back to Chelsea and he's their medical director.
    • I think we won a medical award of some description during Karankas time, that does ring a bell
    • He's a much better footballer (especially technically) than I think anyone really thought when he signed. I just assumed he was another Warnock ogre but he really does seem like a very good player at this level. 
    • I thought we won some kind of award a few years ago?  Might have been medical rather than sports science, mind.
