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

imagine the difference this would make if it were put into the championship or even spread across all of the football league. Insanity.

 

 

Indeed.

With that money you could either pay the wages of 4-5 top PL players for a year...or wipe out the debts of a few lower league clubs.

Nigel Pearson signs 3yr Bristol City deal. He has won 2 out of his 12 games in charge.
 

Surprised he got job on permanent basis on back of that.

Albeit with a full summer he could have an impact next season.

I watched this at half time, thought it was a good watch if somebody hasn't seen it yet, quite a raw conversation between Ian Wright and Alan Shearer about online abuse and racism. I'm kind of glad given they apparently can't join the social media blackout that BBC Sport have filled some of the space left with this conversation.

Ian Evatt's Bolton are a win away from promotion to League One. Very impressive given the situation the club were in when he took over.

He also did a remarkable job at getting Barrow promoted to League Two whilst playing a very entertaining, technical brand of football. I'd be keen to see how he gets on at League One level (if they go up), think he has the makings of being a good manager.

Man United vs Liverpool has been postponed due to fan protests. Two of the world's biggest clubs, playing a potentially league-deciding game, see the match abandoned an hour after it should have started because fans broke into the empty stadium where the match should have been played behind closed doors due to a global pandemic, to protest against a European Super League that was abandoned 48 hours after it was announced by owners who couldn't give a flying f**k about football, and nobody says a word on social media because of a self-imposed industry-wide blackout.

We really are living in extraordinary times.

Man Utd - Liverpool game today has been postponed.

There was a largely peaceful anti-Glazer protest outside Old Trafford, but apparently a couple of hundred morons decided it would be a laugh to break into the stadium.

According to one of the pundits who were going to cover the game, bottles and other objects were thrown at the commentary box.

Why do these fuckwits always have to show up and let the media have a field day, focusing on their idiotic antics, instead of the main issue...unfit owners?

    • He was probably our top target because he was free and experienced at this level. It's disconcerting when we need three in and we've missed out on a free transfer. Going to be a long summer.
    • Well football is cyclical. They were at the top of theirs back then...as were we. I guess we can count ourselves lucky we didn't bottom out as low as they did.     In one sense they were horrible days. With hindsight we were clearly spending beyond our means...even with Sky's millions. Not saying Southgate would have kept us up without the budget cutting but he'd have had a better chance. We didn't plan long-term to make sure we could sustain our place in the PL...or mount a strong comeback once we got relegated. Just been a series of kneejerk reactions and short-term thinking. On the flip side it was fun while it lasted. I would love to know though if Gibson & the board actually thought the gravy train would ride on indefinitely, or if they were actually aware of the precarious state the club would be in, if the money stopped rolling in... Also, the closest we came to losing our identity was when the stadium was renamed the Cellnet Riverside. No-one was demanding the club change its kit, badge or name, as has happened in some cases.   Ah yes, the days when we were Middlesburgh Celtic. 😁  
    • This is scarily familiar, right down to the team signing our top option!
    • If he was our top target and he has chosen to go play second fiddle to last seasons ‘obviously not top target’ that’s disconcerting.
    • That is the only thing that would surprise me. The scale of the rebuild needed is huge. I don’t see us getting quality and quantity.
