Absolute gentleman, the biggest Boro supporter around and his legacy lives on in this website, oneboro wouldn't be around as it is today without his input in the early days. Such sad news. 

He was of the main reasons why I moved over from 606.  When VB wrote something, everyone took note, which I think is the best compliment someone could be given on a forum like this.  RIP VB.

Have been discussing what to say about this, but yes, it's a sad, sad day. He was always the nicest guy when I spoke to him. Thoughts are with his family and friends. RIP VB.

Heard the news earlier today, really sad to hear it too. Would love to hear more from those who knew him better.

My boss knew him a bit, he was biz dev director at Sumo Digital for quite a while and I believe he was still involved in some capacity at least up until recently. Well regarded in the games industry, always hoped to meet him properly and chat about games, the Boro and the forum. Very sad day for all who knew him.

RIP Sir. Prayers and Blessings to his family and friends.

Such sad news! Was a prominent poster when I joined the board from 606. Genuinely ITK and not arrogant about it. Seemed like a lovely bloke.

Rest in peace Vector. UTB

He was the admin on oneboro before downsouth took over, and he led quite a few of us over here from the old gazette forum when it went down the toilet. Can't understate his importance and how good a guy he was.

Terrible news to hear this. I always hoped he would have make a comeback onto the forum after stepping down. I think he did very briefly a couple of years ago. He made transfer threads exciting with the snippets he used to get (i remember the storm the Mccormack saga started on here and twitter with Leeds fans).

RIP

    • Ah i see. I thought he was bought in as it was anticipated Henderson might be loaned out. They still got Lee Grant i think who 4th choice there.

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
