Non-Boro Football

The biggest issue in all of that is the special status thing.  It basically allows the biggest 6 clubs to change whatever they like in the future.  So these proposals would probably just be the start.

Exactly it’s an outrageous power grab and should be resisted by the other 86 clubs.

It does look that way.

I wonder if it was leaked deliberately on an international weekend so the focus is on that rather than the usual club football.  The media is mostly geared towards the internationals at the moment.

Maguire out of form, Dier just not that good, Walker is a right back playing in central defence and he wasn't impressive during the last international games.  Trippier playing left wing back and he was also poor in the last break.  Rice and Henderson both defensive/worker types.  Even the three attacking players seem like defensive picks. Unsurprisingly after nearly 30 mins we are 1-0 down and we haven't had a shot yet.  Not even a shot 🤦‍♂️

Fully deserved equaliser 😏

I love this new way of playing, it’s great to see so many long balls from out lads. Proper football!

Yes, it did put me in mind of another team 🙂

Playing a little bit better so far in the second half in fairness but there's still not much going on.

    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
    • That sounds about right to me, with my fag packet maths.
