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.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
