From what I have read elsewhere I believe there is an £8M deal in place.

Just had a snoop in the Norwich club website to see if there was anything "official".

Seems like it is an obligation to buy upon promotion rather than an option.

Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Here's an even better question but it's quite a long one.  Why did we sign Bamford and Gestede for a manager that didn't want them at the time, then 6 months later, appoint a different manager wh

Hope that Lewis Wing scores a screamer today, Rotherham desperately need to beat Birmingham here.

Yeah I badly want derby to be relegated under Rooney

I'm sure we can count on Boro to help make that a reality, when we play Rotherham.

Don't have anything against Rooney myself, but I would love the final act of Mel Morris as Derby's owner to be relegation.

Slimes, dodgy ***.

Huge blow that for Rotherham. Losing in 88th min to Birmingham. Feels inevitable now for them. Albeit am sure we will give them a hand on Wednesday. Really want them to stay up at Derby expense.

Yeah, I sadly cannot see Rotherham making up the points now. Two defeats to relegation rivals in a row.

Their remaining fixtures are Middlesbrough, Barnsley, Brentford, Blackburn, Luton and Cardiff.

I don't think they'll win any of those remaining games, they looked exhausted today and the fixture build up isn't slowing down.

Surely they'll get at least 3 points. They play us next and with us in the form we are in, if they don't beat us they probably deserve to go down! 😂

I'm honestly expecting us to beat them comfortably.

Marvellous to see Real Madrid playing the game the way it should be played. Los Blanco’s, they are even named after me....

Wonderful 😃

The premise of the article is that Real Madrid are a long ball side.  Then you look at the table he has included and they only play 10% of passes long, which is the 2nd lowest in the league behind Barcelona, and less than half the percentage of the most direct teams in Spain.  Their switches of play number is the second highest behind Sevilla, which tells you that the long passes they are making are across the pitch rather than down field as well.  So they are not a long ball side at all in any way whatsoever.  It's an article that directly contradicts the evidence that is presented in the article itself, and he gets paid to write this nonsense 🤦‍♂️

    • Whilst accepting "Barbie Girl" is a parody, I have to agree that AR is right about admitting to singing it...  though I would have had more respect for SD if he had chosen "My Ding-a-ling" 🙂 
    • I disagree that we don't have players good enough to play the ball in a more controlled and purposeful way, particularly since the January transfer window. I wouldn't say any of our defenders are particularly bad on the ball at all, and all of our forwards/wingers thrive with the ball at their feet, not in the air. Not to mention we probably have the worst keeper in the league at long balls. The way we play is completely counter to our individual players strengths and it's purely because it's the only way our manager  knows how to play.
    • we need the players to play with it on the group in tight areas to. most of our squad players dont and just lump it. because of the instructions they are given. that is probably because like we seen under woodgate, they are not good enough to play and will lose possession and cause us problems. the main thing with woodgate tactics was losing the ball and instantly putting ourselves in trouble and outnumbering with guys all over the shop. NW stopped that by making us more rigid in shape and telling them to not dally and lump it over the top. at least that's how i see it in a simplified way.
    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
