There would be something funny about good old Mel selling the Derby company that owns their catering contracts or something to this fella for £200m.  FFP sorted for another few years kerching!

Happy Chris Pratt GIF

If this is the same person that tried to purchase Newcastle, can you imagine the reaction from their supporters if he is given the go-ahead at Derby...  can't remember exact reason he got blocked there, but surely not one rule for Prem and another for EFL 

It won't happen, I can see quite a few EFL teams objecting to it, for a start.

Well we are now no longer the only team to take points off Reading and weirdly it was the team we just beat! Weird league, this.

It certainly is Brunners. The toughest league in the world IMO

What's happening with Traore at Wolves?  Doesn't seem to be getting in the side?

I was wondering about this too. Nice way to repay his loyalty in signing a new contract.

Its messing up my fantasy team as well. I am reluctant to drop him as he will be guaranteed to have the perfect game the moment I do. Or perhaps he is enjoying watching the Boro that much by not performing Wolves may choose to offload him back to us.

    • Thanks for that. Seen a few reports about the test games but they only tell you about the seating arrangements¬†
    • Hey Erimus, fancy missing out Mel Nurse. A Boro Captain too. A bit before your time¬†ūüė≥
    • There will need to be some serious psychological rather than tactical decisions made by NW for the Swans game. Was it fatigue, was it the weather, was it those misses that could have seen us three nil up by thirty minutes and cruising at Huddersfield? I am fully in Warnock's camp but there is a question mark over his use of Subs at times. He usually calls it right but there are now a couple of occasions when he has used them poorly and if fatigue is a contributory¬†reason then he has to start using more than three and more importantly he has to start changing and influencing games sooner with them. Some tough calls to be made and it is imperative that he does it without favour. There needs to be a clear message of shape up or lose your place. Easier said than done of course with such a small and inexperienced squad but below par mediocrity must have consequences regardless of status or reputation. For clarity that isn't aimed just at Britt who is the obvious target after Saturday, there were a few others who struggled for whatever reason. ¬†
    • Tough game. Need to win with the way the top-6 is shaping up. Really tough to call after the display at Huddersfield and conceding 3 goals all from open play. I think it'll be a dire 1-1 with Swansea the happier team.
    • I think by now we all know that we thought we had bought Britt, the mythical legend who scored goals for fun at this level. The realty is that we bought a "goalscorer" that nobody else was willing to match¬†the asking price for and over time we have found out why. What compounds the issue is that having identified his strengths and weaknesses a succession of Managers have managed to set up Boro¬†teams to play¬†to those¬†weaknesses. When I have conversations with fans of other clubs I'm often surprised when I raise a topic on a Player of theirs that I rate to find some negativity from them. Its the same with us, we have players that other fans rate but they don't watch them as intimately, week in, week out over several seasons as we do. Usually we have an opinion of a competitors player based on a few headline performances,¬†great saves or defending condensed into¬†two minute snippets on a Saturday night or heaven forbid, the goals they scored against us. Jordan Hugill is a beast of a Striker who will get you goals at this level except when he came here instead of being a beast he was sat on his backside doing a one man¬†impression of the Gap Bands "oops upside your head". Kris Boyd, Scott McDonald, Jordan Rhodes etc. etc. there is a very long historical list. It works equally in reverse of course, Liverpool paid over two million for Brad Jones, its just that it seems to work against us more than for us. ¬†
