Ouch 🤣

When you see something like that it makes you think about stuff and I think its an appropriate time to also say how positive this forum is for myself and my mental health and mood.  It’s a great place

The problem with the gesture itself (in my opinion) is that there are no concrete goals. 'End racism' is a noble idea, but how do we know when that's been achieved? Can it be achieved? I wonder i

Really classy, well thought out and worded statement from the FA. Really eliminates any reason to boo the players apart from the fact that you're a racist. Good job. 

I'm sure anyone booing at this point is channelling their inner Woodgate with his infamous "The table is lying" quote/mentality.

Picture the scene...

FA Statement: "English football is very clear that it does not view this as being aligned to a political organisation or ideology".

England "Fan" that boos: "The statement is lying"..."Boooooooooo!".

It's coming out from all ends in the camp, even outside as Scotland have said they'll join us in our game doing the same thing just for our game as solidarity with the message we're actually sending.

It's like I said before, the only people left perpetuating this as what people say they're booing it for are the people who will boo.

Notably the only idiotic response I read in the quick glance at the top 5 comments I saw is an anti-vaxxer. These are the people who want the footballers to pander to their idiocy.

On a scale of 1-10 how excited is everyone for the game tomorrow?

I'm probably at a 7 or 8.

I like watching England at tournament footy but I'd prefer watching Boro play at Rotherham so that always kind of knocks 1-2 off, certainly at the group stage.

After today, watching football for joy feels like it knocks another 2 or 3 off. That may go tomorrow if the news remains positive.

EDIT - I forgot to mention, I prefer watching England football at the pub or at least with family/friends. Not being able to do that certainly knocks a couple more off.

So right now about a 3-4

Hopefully the news stays positive and that excitement gets bumped up again! Must admit watching the Belgium game wasn't half as enjoyable as it would have been.

Luckily we've managed to book a pub table for me and 5 of my mates, so we'll be in a pub, but it won't quite be the same as the WC.

Edit: Just to clarify WC = World Cup 😂

Do you normally watch football on the toilet like?

Watching England at a major tournament has always felt by far and away the best part of football. The atmosphere and feeling is unmatched for me, although since the first tournaments I remember 2004/06 results haven’t been great

The first one I remember properly was 2002. Have the vivid memories of my mum taking me and my sister down the pub on the way to school to watch the first half of games at about 7 in the morning*. 😂

*2002 was in Korea/Japan so the time difference was in full effect.

I'm so happy to read considered opinions on the subject, i must admit I've been lazy and only getting my boro chat from the Gazette website comments sections recently which are jam packed with very very dubious posts about politics and Marxism and subverting everything that is english by taking the knee.

 

I'm very interested to see what happens, if an england player scores then takes the knee. The perma outraged booing mob will be conflicted and so I'm sure it's going to happen. 

 

Reading comments here has restored my faith fair play to oneboro, I will not stray again... 

 

living in NZ now so I'm excited about the euros, but not enough to watch at 1am with work in the morning! 

 

in the past I was always excited, then we'd do rubbish, so I lost hope, then just fudge through the group stages and start to look up for it in the knockout phase getting me excited again only to crash out in controversial or underwhelming performance circumstances.

 

now it's fair to say I get more excited as the tournament wears on, always with a shield around my heart in case we get knocked out by a hand of god or uncounted goal that bounced a yard behind the line. we had a bit of luck in '66, but I think we've paid for it ever since.

 

a young squad with a lot of potential and a very intelligent manager, I'm hoping we put on a show for everyone.

 

UTB and come on england!

Wtf are you an amoeba? I was doing my A Levels in 2002 and missed most of the England/Brazil game!

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
