I'm sure you'd do the same for Ireland, haha, and I probably wouldn't blame you.

I'd have Boro win the CL over seeing Northern Ireland win the World Cup

Heading away with the good lady wife so won’t be back on before the final. Sincerest best wishes to the ordinary English fans on here. Hope it happens for you 💪

I think for me it's partly about the connection to the area too. I don't hold much connection to the entirety of England but I love coming from Middlesbrough, I've lived and worked in a few places aro

Congrats, friends ...  🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 V 🇩🇰 @ Wembley  ...   Good luck to y'all!

Once we put Grealish on it gave us that little bit extra on the left, combined with Sterling & Shaw for the 1st goal and then the assist for Kane. I wonder if they watched the game in Scotland and Wales I hope so, no doubt they'll have cheered us on 😁

Actually no. I would prefer that Boro win a major trophy than Ireland tbh. That way I can be smug to 99.99% of the population over here for a year 😂

It would be great to share the joy with millions rather than a few hundred thousand.

That's the reason I'd take Boro over England. Feels more special when it's a smaller group of people who get to enjoy the moment. 

 

I wouldn't complain at an England Euro, World cup double though...

welldone England and good on ya GS  for being proactive rather than reactive with the Grealish introduction. once again Pickford was immense and the back 3 all had great games. 

sidenote , ive noticed that its 7/7 so far in this KO round for teams wearing white.

Good omen for the Boro.

The one and only time England won a cup, we were promoted the next season. Glorious memories of England 1966 and Boro promoted 66/67 season.

I think for me it's partly about the connection to the area too. I don't hold much connection to the entirety of England but I love coming from Middlesbrough, I've lived and worked in a few places around the country and I still remember 5.5 years ago when I was living and working in London, I hit a real brick wall. I was really unhappy, I'd just moved jobs and I felt like an imposter working amongst people that I just couldn't make a strong connection with.

Interestingly, there was one lad who I worked with who I remember quite well during the 3-4 months we worked together, was a Romanian lad about my age and even though he wasn't a huge football fan, it turns out him and his family were Steaua fans and he remembered growing up with that Middlesbrough game as part of their history so we got chatting a fair bit through that. I don't know if that connection is what started to drive me home but it was part of a process. I spoke to him a lot, I was reading Jonathan Wilson's Brian Clough Biography 'Nobody Ever Says Thank You', I was listening to an awful lot of Cattle & Cane.

12 months later (just after we got promoted as well) I was back in Middlesbrough living with my brother, working for a company based in Sunderland. As with everyone, had my ups and downs since then but I've rarely doubted my ability to connect with people in some way since, always been working with people from Boro, people who just know what it's like to have grown up up here. I just love it and I don't think I would swap it for anything.

So yeah, for me, I will always support England but I'll never ever feel the way I do about England as a whole as I do with the mighty Boro. For me, it's not just about the club, it's about the town. If there's such thing as patriotism about a town, that's where I sit.

@ wilsoncgp

 

Just googled that Cloughy Biography. The photo on the front cover of him smoking amazed me. I never realised he was a smoker. I'm surprised they didn't airbrush it out in this anti smoking era.

    • Yeah I didn't think Gary went after Boro at all. Deluded sheep botherers heard one soundbite in isolation and decided that he did for some reason.  He was more asking how as a football community have we got into this situation... How has someone like Morris been allowed to do this. And how can we stop it happening again? 
    • I’m surprised that they still allowed tickets to be sold without announcing some form of checks for this match. It’s not like it wasn’t going to be popular....
    • I think Gary Neville's statement was really good. I thought he spoke with balance and ultimately aimed the questions at the right people, really. It's the view of football in this country and how we manage that situation. He said clubs should be like listed buildings and in one respect I agree as the culture and history of football is huge in this country. But also, you can't afford the government to look out for them when they're also ran by massive risk-taking owners. Which is why we have a Fit & Proper test and FFP and all those things, to try and protect the clubs from the people who run them. But whilst those things only provide an obstacle that these bell ends can overcome, you aren't really protecting anything. And whilst football clubs are like other businesses, that legitimises our claim because Derby have been run like a regular business, not like a club that cares about staying alive. And when the crap hits the fan, they want all the protection in the world, they want MPs to stand up for them, they want local media to challenge us because we're being ***, they only want to pay 25% of their deferred bloody tax. Whilst that's the situation, we should treat them like a regular business. If they want to be treat as part of the football family, they should have acted like a part of it to begin with.
    • So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?
    • tbf Gary didn't belittle the claim, he said if football is a family then the clubs would drop it, even if the claims are legitamite. He also then pointed the finger back at Mel and the administrators. It was clear he was generalising and didn't have the full facts, but he was basing his responce on what happened to Bury. However, that was a much milder screw up than Derby, so not a like for like comparison
