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

Was there? Seems strange for us to be looking at spending over £10m (Muniz + Payero) just in fees if we were anywhere near it.

Was wage structure concern rather than transfer fees (they can be deferred or spread)

You would have the Derby fans paying tribute to you for sure 🤣

It definitely would be, but I'm fairly confident we won't have  given how much effort has been put in to limiting spending since 2018 and how aggressively Gibson has called out other owners.

He'd have egg all over his face and look like a right ***.

Still if we broke the rules, we'd deserve the punishment.

Yeah, they're absolutely ***. Due to EFL rules, once they go into administration they can't be bought for 28 days (in order to allow Supporter groups to make a bid) and for every month they fail to pay their players, they get a 3 point deduction, too.

Not owning their stadium or training ground is something that is seriously going to bite them in the *** and to me, it's just pure karma.

No collateral, mmm that’s an issue. Do we own ours? 

A bit of BORO history and the grounds we played on 
1876 to 1878 The Archery Ground, Albert Park

1878 to 1880 Breckon Hill 

Paradise Ground (Middlesbrough Ironopolis) 

1882 to 1903 The Linthorpe Road Ground

1903 to 1995 Ayresome Park

August 1995 to present Riverside Stadium

They can't be deferred in terms of FFP and they are always spread out for FFP.  If we were close to the limit then we'd have an issue with everything.  Being close to the limit is just being close to the limit of course, the issue is when you go beyond it.

We were close to FFP limits before the end of last season, but we have more latitude for this season, which is precisely why we've been able to spend in the summer transfer window. 

No tears for Derby, or Reading, whose wages were 266% of turnover a couple of seasons ago.

    • Swansea average 66% possession every match so I imagine their fans see that sort of game a lot. I'd prefer us to be adaptable and exploit a team's weakness with Long Balls than to try and play right into their hands.  I've seen enough from Wilder's first 4 games that we'll play a modern style of football for the most part. But I'd always prefer us to be a winning team than an attractive team... 
    • It's also happened twice in Rangers history (McCoist, McDowell and McCall/White, Waddell and Wallace)
    • Smogsterking is right,  I just googled Celtic managers and before Jock Stein they had the trio of Willie Maley, Jimmy McStay and Jimmy McGrory
    • Writing that gave me flashbacks of Noel Whelan and Andy Campbell.
    • I would love Utd at Riverside so I can take my little cousin to watch Cr7 who he is obsessed with. Cr7 probs would not play but would like to think he on bench and has to come on when we are leading them but his efforts prove in vain as we knock them out.
