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

Well to be fair they are just ideas put together by fans - either using some kit design website or art software. They probably weren't intended to be original. I'm guessing whoever did them was just t

I always thought this crest redesign was slick as hell:

That's gorgeous! The lion, 86 and 1876, the Transporter Bridge, a circle and a shield...mmm...

How did we end up with our current overdesigned and underwhelming logo when this beauty was in contention?

Nobody really knows but there were a few rumours at the time that it came from a source close to Gibbo which is why it went through "unopposed" or from a Student at a local College (or maybe a mixture of the two). To my knowledge the original source never really came to light and considering the fans opinions at the time and ever since it's not a surprise it was kept quiet.

It was done by a bloke that worked at the club. He was in some kind of junior marketing/commerce position. I remember him referencing it on twitter at the time and then receiving a lot of stick as it was so bad.

I did like that badge, but would love to see us go to a minimalist badge with just a lion, or a lion with MFC underneith.

Like the 70s to mid 80s badge?

How many weeks after the home shirt does the away shirt usually come out? Can anyone remember back to last pre-season for a rough idea?

Think they were both out at the same time last year

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.

I think the point CT was trying to make is that not all "world views" are in fact global.

The majority of the time, some people find certain things offensive, while others don't. Even when it comes to words relating to themselves.

Also, as CT said, the intent behind the use of a word can carry as much meaning as the word itself (though that can be less obvious on an internet forum).

In a nutshell, just because the prevailing or politically correct view is to find something offensive, not everyone will. Assuming everyone is aware of, or agrees with said view can cause as much argument as the topic itself...as we occasionally see here.

Anyway, thats just my 2 cents.

I'll be honest, I don't really care if you are offended or not - it's still considered a slur, so I'm not going to allow it, it's that simple.

Thats a nice piece of work - though really you could make 2 badges out of it. Get rid of the shield and you've basically got the 1986 badge.

For a new design, I'd keep the shield, have "MIDDLESBROUGH FC" in a bar across the top and "1876" where the 86 is.

I'd also change the blue bits to red.

    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play. 
    • Have a great time, that man. Hope the boys make you proud ,Enjoy the Legends Lounge & the party. .........  Travelling is a complete pain these days. Im off to Tenerife next week via Stansted so i need locator forms going into Spain, PCRS test & locator forms  coming back to the UK & again a locator form coming back to Ireland. All worth it though........... I love the way people on Forums ask "Does anyone know a bar in "wherever" where i can watch the match. In other words- I am in "wherever" & i want everyone to know it,  BTW Does anyone know a Bar in Costa Adeje where i can watch Sky Sports?!
