Ironically. When I think of a left footer who could play CB and have the ability to overlap… date I say… George Friend 

I don't think George can overlap any more - he's more likely to be lapped!

He was arguably the best LB we've had in my time supporting the Boro, and a great player on his day, but that day was several seasons ago. His legs had gone even before we sold him, and I haven't seen much from his time at Birmingham to suggest we made a mistake letting him go.

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

Got to say credit where credit is due, I’m hugely impressed with the business we have done so far. The fact that other clubs were willing to pay a higher percentage of Flo’s wages but we were the

Newcastle are ready to offer 20 million for Stokes Tyrese Campbell. I think they should offer us that for Tav instead🙂

Picture the scene. It's the final game of next season. Boro and Newcastle are scrapping it out for the second automatic promotion spot, with Norwich having already sewn up the Championship title with an unprecedented 110 points. We visit St James's in a winner-takes-all shootout. Tav steps up to take an 89th-minute free kick, 25 yards out, wearing the loathsome stripes of the skunks.

Does he score? Could you live with the irony if he buried it in the top corner? (Could you stop laughing if he skied it into the Gallowgate and smacked a fat Geordie in the face?)

Anyone know why Yan Dhanda can't get a look in at Swansea? Always liked the look of him and out of contract in the summer

Always thought he was a bit like that Jota for Brum or Fabbrini. Look decent but overall impact on the game is very limited.

I would take that potential scene if we got 20 million for him now. It won't happen anyway because Newcastle will join Sunderland in League 1 as the saudi despot loses interest when they get relegated this season and they are left to support themselves without any bloodmoney.

God, I hope you're right!

I wonder where these Championship Clubs are going to get the money from to afford his wages? 

Newcastle might be happy to cover his wages if it means they can clear a space in their squad to bring in a big gun in January

Exactly. If they want rid money isn’t an issue. Could offer a promotion bonus to sweeten the deal.

    • 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
