We should just go back to this, but change the year to 1876  

The thing is I'm not bothered about it.  I don't believe that the person who said it really meant it, and I doubt he was looking to really offend me with it, so I wouldn't report it or him.  A bit lik

Hopefully similar to this

Given the transporter bridge theme this year, I wonder whether we will get transporter blue for the away kit again.  I loved that away kit, until Sunderland went and copied it a couple of years later.

I think the shirt itself looks really good, one of the better ones in the last few years.

Having said that is anyone else completely fed up with the gambling sponsor? Not only does it ruin the look of the shirt but ethically it leaves an awful lot to be desired. Hopefully isnt too much longer before its prohibited to have them advertise in football the way they currently do.

Considering that Ben "PR" Houchen gets his face all over Boro media due to him being Tory Gibson's best mate, I'm just relieved that it's the outline of the transporter bridge and not his face yet again. 

Being sponsored by a gambling company sits very badly with me. I only just learned that 300,000 people in Britain have a gambling addiction. This article on Andros Townsend was very informative: https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12327062/andros-townsend-exclusive-interview-overcoming-a-gambling-addiction-and-helping-others-do-the-same

There is a huge gambling crisis in the UK that barely gets talked about, it'll only get worse with how much gambling is rammed down our throats here.

last I saw they wanted gambling sponsors off kits by 2023, I hope they stick to that.

If you watch any late night TV - thats all you see in ad breaks...the monotony of it pisses me off as much as anything.

For those of us that think gambling's for mugs, its just an annoyance. But I do spare a thought or two for those in the grip of gambling addiction, or trying to recover from it.

A knackered bridge that doesn't work, and 'set your limits', two things that beautifully encapsulate Boro 🙌

 

It still looks nice though - its a historic part of the Teesside skyline. 😉

I do get what you mean though. They could do an entire series of Abandoned Engineering on Teesside. The bridge, the steelworks, whatever's left of the old ICI plant (if anything), the hydraulic clock tower. Must be plenty more besides those.

I hate it. Also, the club badge looks so bad now, they need a redesign, or to just go back to any of the previous version.

Also, they way people bleat on about gambling ads... who really gives a ***? just get as much money in as possible. people will gamble irrespective of where we have 32Red on our shirts.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
