Here we go again. You know what you were doing with your comment and it wasn't entirely related to the bridge. Stop it.

Of course it wasn't entirely related to bridges but I thought it was a word that had been reclaimed.  Apologies if I was mistaken about this.

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

It is still a slur. Lets just move on and learn from this.

I did.  I just had a look around the internet and read some differing views on it 👍

Incidentally, I did get called Adolf yesterday, but you're not really looking for that kind of 'offensive' thing, are you?

When was that, I'm genuinely not sure if I saw that - I'm not around all the time and I don't read every post. Please feel free to flag posts like that for us though, it's what the report button is there for.

getting back to the topic matter, this is why , in general, im not a fan of the white band. when done simplistically as it was in its 73/74 form ,yes its a thing of beauty, but alternatively, when it is tinkered with it can turn out to be a monstousity. Soill be fair as i can with my comments on this particular effort, I Like the collar, i really am pleased weve opted for red shorts and socks and i but into Hummel being a better quality than adidas or errea , although looking back the designs under errea were by far the best weve had. Now then , the band is just too low, and the bridge although iconic is a monstousity itself (like the resulting shirt) and theres no way to make it pleasant on the eye within the design. the other positive i can add is that im on board totally wit thebetting company comments and btw CT I Loved your witty reply "i bet they dont" sometimes a few words can say so much. regarding the recent sidetracking between CT and Brunners , theres a massive irony in the previous post regarding moving on and learning.

Ok, I don't really want to go on about this because you've got a view of the world that just isn't how it works in reality, but just because you didn't use it as a slur or think of it as a slur doesn't mean that it isn't. I'm not accusing you of intentionally trying to offend anyone, just to be more careful about your choice of language.

Couldn't disagree more. Errea got about 5 right out of 15. That's not a great record. The only thing wrong with the new shirt, imo is the tranny plastered all over it. I don't get the band being too low thing. On the picture of the shirt drapped over a mannequin it looks spot on to me. The XXXL shirt used to announce it might be why it's perceived as being low possibly?

It was a great effort but poor in its final execution which is a shame.

All the ingredients were there to make it iconic, the Transporter and the White band. The band is far too low but may be passable at best with red shorts and the Transporter scribbles are an overkill. All done with the best of intentions but like the Boro badge it just looks like it was designed by a seven year old.

All the right notes, just not necessarily in the right order which is really sad. I do appreciate the intent so some credit has to be given for that. As for the sponsors logo the less said about that the better, it destroys the shirt apart from it being immoral along with offensive and painful to many. I can't understand why for example tobacco products are banned in sport yet gambling is permitted, both destroy lives and families.

Part of the ongoing battle that mental health issues should be treated similarly to physical issues. We can physically show someone the effects a cigarette will have on your insides but when it comes to the brain, that's not really possible to the same extent. So some will have varying beliefs as to how much control a person should have over something like a gambling addiction.

Mind you, at least we accept that sports betting is a problem in football to an extent and have these messages somewhat taking responsibility for what they do to people. I know its not much but we can't even agree within the games industry about what constitutes gambling. Quite close to home, FIFA's Ultimate Team is the absolute worst for it and it's only just starting to take some minor steps to making it more manageable after being banned in Belgium.

    • 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
