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

Man Utd fans crying into their prawn sandwiches.

Man Utd 0 - 4 Liverpool (HT) 😮

This could be the end for Solskjaer (especially if it gets worse second half).

Wonder if they'll ask Fergie to come out of retirement?

I wonder if there will be some articles in the Manchester Evening News later on, explaining how it's not the manager's fault.

Now Ole can blame the ref, phew!

While I didn't feel Pogba's challenge was a stone cold red card, I felt he was pretty lenient at other times. Utd could have finished with 9 players.

I got the distinct impression the players were actually trying to get Ole sacked. It was like watching some of Boro's worse games of recent times.

Don’t like United so enjoyed every goal. Fergus face and Ole scratching his head was priceless 😂

Any players that goes studs up should be charged with assault. Pogba was rightly sent off and should be given a season ban.

In an alternative reality, Lindelof and Maguire signed for us...  if that is what you get for £110 million, then Bamba must still be worth a bit more..  wins more in one half than they have all season. Jesting aside, I have seen better defenders playing for less fashionable that can consistently produce better performances but I suppose they are helped by other team members that are willing to get stuck in too rather than stand and watch them struggle

Well the result gives a new meaning to “give me five” 😂

I think five may well be banned in a certain part of Manchester. 
How old is your child err 4.99, how much is that £4.99 

Would you like a can of four plus one alive? Can you lend me half a tenner?

yep i got a warped sense of satisfaction seeing that capitulation by the media darlings. grate as watching boro win was and the cricket later that day, this rounded off a lovely weekend sports for me(final note to the bengals too).

re the sending off, i thought pogba was slightly unfortunate VAR got involved otherwise he may have got away with a yellow , Ronaldo though is incredibly lucky to have stayed on the pitch for his first half assault on jota.

    • I wouldn't describe Onel as deadwood personally. The only reason he left is exactly because the manager and style of play changed. I also think there's a very good chance we would have got him with or without Scott as I believe he is widely believed to be the player Warnock said he'd "take in a heartbeat" when potential transfers were being discussed.
    • Hospitality at the JCA is, indeed, very good. I've got a Scots mate who keeps threatening to take me to a Utrecht game. Must do it one of these days.
    • I can see where you're coming from Pidge, however, there is another way of looking at it, keep the players and have a better chance of staying up and we are a much better prospect for prospective buyers who may be prepared to go higher if others start over-bidding them. The more money we get in, the more we can pay our creditors. My preference would be to pay off all creditors 100%. I did come up with an idea whereby Mel lends the club the money to pay off the creditors and thereby becomes one himself, he writes off the £140M we owe him. The club leaves Admin and he gets 25% of the new debt up front. The rest is paid back over time, £2M at the start of each season and 25% of any profits made each financial year until the interest free loan is paid back to him. I'd also have Derby (and preferably the rest of the EFL teams) present a budget before the start of every season to the EFL, as happens here in the Netherlands. The budget has to be believable. Projected income and projected outgoings, a club knows then how much "extra" it has to buy players. The idea is to NOT make a loss. If, due to circumstances, you do make a loss, each subsequent year's budget has to include a realistic plan on how, and over what reasonable time scale, the club will pay off their debts. Failure to produce a realistic, believable budget sees the club getting it thrown back at them to amend and keep to the amendments. Failure to do so will lead to an immediate points deduction. Recurring infringements can see a club thrown out of the League. That would ensure nobody could end up where we currently are.  
    • yeah, the club card thing makes it annoying. I went to an Ajax vs Utrecht game pre covid, it was so one sided! on the plus side the free beer and food in the hospitality was great. I've been to Aalsmeer a few times, there is a guy who sells Keter tuinhuises from his farm near there, that I've used a few times.  
    • Gary Neville's comments would have held more weight if he had and his brother hadn't bankrolled Salford in to the EFL in the same season that their hometown club went under. Salford replaced Bury in the EFL.
