Ugo Ehiogu Memorial


Recommended Posts

Following discussions with the supporters forum, there seems to be a bit of traction with regards to creating a memorial of sorts for big Ugo.

The initial suggestion was for a mural of some sort depicting Ugo during his Boro pomp.

Would be interested to hear thoughts and suggestions as to what how you guys would like to depict a memorial and where you’d suggest it goes.

Initial thoughts are for something like this…

I think this would be the perfect photo to use for Ugo.

Got to admit I haven't been to the Riverside since the pandemic, but my initial thought on it being under that bridge is that there is usually burger and sweet vans there on match day and it would seem a bit pointless putting it behind them.

I don't know the area well enough to have any suggestions on that front, but I 100% support a memorial for Ugo.

Hope it happens, guy will always be a legend.

Yeah that was one of my initial thoughts too. Suggestion was to identify the kind of canvas we’d need. Can’t imagine that pitch would be shifted and you can’t have it there with the burger van in situ.

The completely empty metal panelling on the left of the windowed section here would seem a good place, if that is something the club would consider

Another option, although it would require agreeing it with the company based in there, would be the long section of wall after you cross the train tracks coming from the To wn centre. 

I do think something more physically imposing would be better suited to the man himself though.

There are plenty of players that deserve this and staff too, ones who won’t get a statue but deserve some memorial. I wonder if we could do something that ties in the gates and statues we have in front of the ground already, we might loose a few car spaces but a properly designed memory space would be nice.

That's not a bad shout, actually. As per your other post, that spot there has enough vertical space to create this physically imposing image of Ugo to reflect the man.

That would be epic. I hadn’t considered something on that scale. I wonder how the club would react to that suggestion. It’s on the list cheers Will

I agree @Naisby 
The thought behind this was because he died so young. It seemed to gain a lot of support on twitter too.

This wall on the right could be a good space and you could have a series of murals for other Boro heroes and legends that the fans would want to honour. Like a memorial version of the East Side Gallery. 

On Ugo specifically, I 100% think we should have something for him.

That was my thinking, and it starts a buzz and personality about the club before you get to the ground itself. Obviously the main stumbling block would be the company who own it.

    • John Ruddy been officially let go by Wolves it seems, I wouldn't be totally against him signing. Was always a Good Championship level keeper for both Wolves and Norwich. I read something regarding George Friend a few pages back the other day and I would be totally all for it, would add some great leadership and the fans would surely be right behind him still and as a left sided centre back I think he could do a real job for us even if just as a back up option. Also heard the Rhodes rumors and I personally believe he is a perfect Wilder Striker, such a hard worker and a great finisher. Which leads me to my final former Boro player, Ben Gibson. I again would love to see him return and think he could flourish in the left sided centre back role for Wilder's system. I do think the best options for those outside centre back roles are more suited to a full back converted/secondary centre back but at Sheff United Wilder didn't always have that option and was still greatly successful. If Fry was to leave Gibson would be great in the middle of the 3 of course.  
    • Very strange move, but apparently it's a three-year contract and for good money. He'll finish is career mid-table in the Championship.
    • Nothing mate. Just a hunch feeling. 
    • Heard something more or just speculating?
