Look at this graphic. The two bullet points at the bottom are bonkers. People were still complaining back then about the style of play and ‘negative’ football as well.

It’s been this way for ever since he’s been at the club. Any team that remotely plays any type of football, and we struggle. It ends up as the following… 1. we can’t control the game. 2. Our defe

Teesside Park is over a mile from Riverside..  you would need Middlehaven (formerly Cargo Fleet)...  Metro just fancy name for local rail services 

Sorry my bad meant Middlehaven, so has the old Cargo Fleet Station opened now?

as far as I know, it is still "under consideration"..  which usually means nobody wants to invest the money required ..  would certainly help even if only open on match days, but I fear it will go the way of the wind turbine and unless people start to kick up a fuss, the Transporter ..

Thanks for this I do have an interest in Railways and I guess I was a bit of an anorak in my youth🤪

Even if Bola and McNair fit tomorrow, I wouldn't change a winning team which has the potential to have some confidence and take the risk of aggravating their injuries further. Start them on the bench and if the game isn't going our way then change it.

Strangely confident going into tomorrow even before the forest result and im going with a 2-0 win . I just think there's so much to lose with a negative result and performance tomorrow.

I'm buzzing for tomorrow's game simply because I want to see Sporar live, he looked a class above vs Forest with his touch and movement haven't seen a striker like that at the Riverside since JFH.

Reckon we could see a few goals I'm going 3-1 Boro, looking forward to seeing Siliki as well he's looked off the pace but I like the way he gets around if he can add some sharpness to his passing he could run games even from picking up second balls from our hoofs I think he could be effective.

Bloody hell, you've changed your tune!  You were on a bit of a downer earlier in the week?

I always thought we were going to get beat by Forest and then win this Saturday.... I'm over the moon to be proved wrong on Tuesday and hopefully we get a result tomorrow.

Excited for this one, feeling strangely positive after just one win.

Hopefully a good crowd, good atmosphere and good performance.

Yes would be good to get The Riverside "rocking" today.

Ruthless and precise please Boro

Without knowing who has eaten what for breakfast, I'm unwilling to make any predictions.  If any of the Boro lads are reading this, make sure you get your snacks in 45 mins time as well 💪

3 Shredded Wheat for everyone!

Or failing that Weetabix will do.

    • 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
