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

Centuries ago Villages had ducking stools whereby if the person drowned they were innocent and if they lived they were guilty and sentenced to death. Nowadays not much has changed sadly. Idiots postin

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

Crazy game on BT, Sevilla v Salzburg ..  forty minutes .. four penalties, all legit.  Three to Austrians, first one missed, second one scored, third one hit post, then VAR check gives Sevilla pen and they score. Salzburg should be out of sight but now looks like going in level at half time...  it's a funny old game 🙂

watching tiraspol v shakhtar on BT ESPN...  enjoyable game ...  Adama Traore just scored with a beautiful volley from a cross by a Brazilian full back named Cristiano..  names to remember. both look as though they would be suited to British game..  not afraid to get stuck in.

Great news.

At least that concludes the saga. Lucky for them that they have had a decent start to the season everything considered, and will "only" be 7 points off safety. But with only 4 goals scored I doubt they will have the firepower to make up the points. They can't 0-0 themselves to safety. Maybe it will save Houghtons job as Forest won't be last.

Maybe I'm biased, but nine points with another three suspended seems relatively minor considering there have been five confirmed breaches of EFL rules, one of which had also occurred in a previous season and not pursued at the time.

A nine-point gap is a big obstacle for a struggling team but it's not insurmountable, and it hardly confirms relegation. Considering all the broken rules and financial duplicity, I think a season in League One is the minimum Derby deserve. Hit a purple patch, and they could shrug this setback off by May.

It's not as stern a punishment as it should be, but I think it's because the EFL have struggled to indisputably pin charges down on them.

That and Derby have successfully contested a lot of what they were charged with.

9 points is a hell of a lot better than the fine they were initially getting, even though it should be guaranteed relegation in a just world.

    • At least my quest to watch quest has been a bit more fruitful of late🙂
    • There are huge questions over how many players get injured under his coaching (we have an entire back five out atm), strong evidence of a bullying culture among his staff, and lucky-dip in-game tactics. I accept we're in far better form than you (and much higher up the table), but we've endured some absolutely atrocious performances this season. With the talent in our ranks, it's been perplexing to watch us hoofing the ball to the opposition keeper time and again. Warnock is leaving at some point this season, so we're basically marking time til then. Whenever he leaves, I don't think anyone on here will shed any tears, or feel as warmly towards him as you guys clearly do. If you want him back, we won't protest!
    • Speak for yourself DK I am certainly getting carried away after all this has not happened for a while and also perhaps drinking some CS has helped🤢
    • TC on behalf of the forum I would like to thank you for your contributions toward our forum, it has been a real pleasure having you and some of your other Cardiff fans on and posting. Would be good to see you pop in from time to time and gve us an unbiased opinion as to how Boro are doing. With regards NW he seems to have adapted somewhat and in my mind he is welcome to carry on in the same vein! Good luck to you and your fellow forum members moving ahead save when you visit The Riverside!👋
