Non-Boro Football

None of them would overly excite me bar maybe the latter if i was stoke fan @northern boro

I am not advocating JW should be sacked but I was looking at managers who are available earlier more out of boredom who I feel could do a better job with our current squad/new model/lack of funds.

Chris Hughton jumps out as obvious choice and two maybe less popular choices but ones i think would make us competitive in this league at the right end of the table with even this squad would be Gary Rowett or Nigel Adkins.

Rowett did not do well at Stoke but did well at Derby and Birmingham. Adkins likewise at Hull. Plus both know the lower leagues well which is market we will be targeting under new recruitment model.

Other names out of work are Sam Allardyce, Carlos Carvahal, Claude Puel, Mark Hughes, Alan Pardew, Aitor and Sol Campbell.

Watched Newcastle yesterday... what a sorry state all three of the big northeast clubs are in.

Could next season be the first ever premier league season with none of us in it...?

Could be fun if we survived, Sunderland got promoted and Newcastle got relegated ?

I didn't even think of that - you're right! 

Although I still feel like it's better for all of us for the others to be doing well if you see what I mean.... players will be more attracted to an area where there are 3 PL teams within driving distance.

Pulis will be all over that Stoke vacancy. A club in a *** or bust situation means more allowances for him. Transfer % Revenue bonus, remote base in Bournemouth and a golden up front handshake from Coates family for accepting which was in our case legal fees arising from his time at Palace

Lack of principles from Derby again

I mean they've said from the off that they'd rehabilitate them. They're guilty for what they did, what they did was stupid, irrational and I suppose to some, unforgivable. But they're young lads and as long as they accept what they did was wrong, accept the charges and try to atone for it, by all means, give them the platform to do that. I'm sure they've been punished internally too. They may even be playing under the pretence of none of their regular bonuses and whatnot, we don't know. I'm sure both players don't want to hide away from it given they both clearly wanted to be involved with the squad.

The way McManaman just scored for Luton, should be watched over and over by our attacking outlets .. He was just steering in a good cross.. No blasting to make it look spectacular.. Just a good controlled steering

    • I remember sitting in a pub in the Algarve that had a load of different games in TV for that 8-1 game. Was with my dad and brother, next to a bunch of united fans (were playing Wigan who were just above us going into that final weekend). Drunkenly said to one of them that I'll get a round of shots in for every goal they put past Wigan, and one of their group chimed in that he'd do the same every time we scored.   Safe to say I got the better deal
    • I think you may be right. I seem to remember moaning about the lack of goals we scored that season. 
    • That City game was a freak game rather than a brilliant performance.  It was common knowledge that Ericsson was going to be sacked after the game so I don't think their players were fully motivated, City went down to 10 men and a few of their players threw the towel in after that. We scored a few great goals in that game but it felt a bit like a friendly game towards the end of the match.  I think that result has become more famous over the years because of how big City have become, before they had the money they were no bigger than us as a club and it felt like we used to beat them every season. 
    • Funnily enough enough as far as I remember that 8-1 was the only game that entire season when we scored more than 2 goals. I may be wrong but it's what I remember, didn't bother checking haha. 
    • I went for Brentford.  I think the games I'd like to see are the last game at Ayresome Park, Boro 4-1 vs United and Man City 8-1. The last 2 would be a great reminder to the recent Boro teams you are allowed to win by more than a goal and score more than 3 on occasions.
