the only reason Derby are "rehabilitating" them is because they'd be *** without them.

I'm not disputing that that's why Derby are actually doing it but I don't really care about Derby and their reasons.

I am saying from the perspective of the players as human beings that they should be rehabilitated because they're young men who have a long life ahead of them, chastising them indefinitely for their crimes the way an institution like a football club the size of Derby could would be hugely damaging to their wellbeing. Especially when we find out that part of the reason Lawrence has been drinking and being daft is because he's lost someone he's very close to recently, that's a very human thing to do and he needs supporting through that at the same time as being punished.

I disagree. They have lots of money therefore they should all be rounded up and shot

Assume you mean Georgia @boroie? Yes I did unfortunately and I thought it was dire from us. I did say if we could “fluke” a win against the Swiss we would be through along with Denmark (taking it for granted they will beat Gibraltar). Stranger things have happened in sport before and will happen again. I’m just hoping it is our turn to defy all logic tomorrow evening. I always look on the positive side with both Ireland and Boro.

I did actually mean Georgia, my bad!!

I watched that game against the Swiss, and while we were better, unfortunately the Swiss are a lot better than the Georgians. We got well trounced in the end, and only Rando pulling off a few worldies kept the score down. I don't see us beating the Danes next month though, so its probably playoffs for us (I think thats how it works anyway?)

Don’t say that on front of @SmogDane and @Borodane. They will only get too excited and won’t be able to sleep for a month 🙄

But was it Georgia and in what context and how can the Irish team get to play offs if not winning? 😄

Nations league I believe. We would be in the playoffs due to our wonderful ability to come last in the group. But, because Denmark would qualify via the Euros Ireland would take their place in the nation’s league playoffs. Or something ridiculously similar to that......

the precept of the Nations league is farcical. its all about revenue.  at the time people enjoyed it but there doesnt seem to be much credo for the winners  ,infact its nigh on forgotton already  .  Now it really gets murky when you look at teams like Scotland who still can qualify for the euros due to thier gruop placing in the nations league ,  AT a time when everyone was crying out for fewer games  they added this to the calendar .   similar to the system within the champions league where the third placed team goes into the uefa cup   .  makes a complete mockery of the initial qualifying  for each competition.

I was on a stag do in Budapest when the world cup group stages were on. Nothing better than sitting all day in the sun in a park watching game after game on the big screen.

Game 2 of the day. Albanian 2nd Division (level 3) top of the table clash between two distant teams playing in neutral Tirana. KF Mirdita v KF Gramshi. More beer was consumed but sadly no food!!!!! I think it finished 2-2. In fact it was 2-1 to the away side 🤪 🍺🍺

    • Thing is, we almost certainly will offer him less money. And I don't think based on what he's said that he'd outright deny just less than what he's on. But tackling the wage bill would appear to need more movement than that and actually, a significantly less wage. I wouldn't expect him to stay on those terms. I'd say if the club really cares about wanting to keep him around, they need to approach it carefully, even if they are going to low-ball him to begin with, don't be a *** about it and expect him to say yes to anything because of a commitment to the club. Have a high boundary that you can't go beyond, work up to it and if his representatives think he should say no to our highest offer then we leave it at that and on good terms. No taking the ***, no expecting him to be accepting a pittance for his services on the back of the club as a whole's mistakes, something much bigger than Ayala's responsibility at this club. Most importantly for me, we have to accept the likelihood he leaves and hopefully wish him all the best if he does. I think he's been a great servant for us and I hope, unlike Derby, we treat him as professionally as he's treated being a player for this club.

    • How many Boro players are out of contract come January,?    
    • It's hard to be impressed with a 7-0 win, why not just be happy with it then?  We're Boro fans and we've scored 13 goals in 16 games this season by way of comparison. I can be more than happy as an England fan watching them score 7 against anyone.  France beat Moldova 2-1 and Serbia beat Luxembourg 3-2 last night while England were failing to impress with their 7-0 win.
