Read that Maguire was booed by England fans the other night. What a distinct lack of class by those "fans"👏 I must say that the treatment Maguire is getting in England is appalling and embarassing.

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

I was at the game - it was really weird.

The Wembley crowd is a strange one at friendlies - very young and very London crowd. Lots of tourists and day-trippers. I guess I'd include myself in that, as I only went because we got free tickets. Trying to get to an England game that means something is borderline impossible unless you want to pay through the nose for scalped tickets.

There were more people singing about Arsenal, West Ham and Spurs than England. I imagine Maguire got it because A) London clubs booing the United connection, B) southern Man United plastics joining in and C) he gets dog's abuse on social media so all the kids think it's funny to boo him. Then of course idiots will just join in because others are doing it without really thinking about it.

I'm sure he'll get an extra loud roar from the 'proper' England fans who turn up to the away games and Nations League fixtures.

It's just an odd one, really. Booing a player from a name being announced. The worst I've ever really noticed at the Riverside is you know who people don't like when you hear every name get cheered except for the odd one or two.

I think the last time I remember a player being booed at the Riverside from a name being announced (though I wasn't there so may be recalling incorrectly) was when Ramirez came on for Monk's home friendly.

Thankfully it's not something you hear often. At least not over here anyway. Boing the oppostion players when you have a large away following is funny though. My own club has one of the biggest away following in the league and often it is about 50/50 in voice level or even above. The home stadium speaker usually calls out the lineup of the home side by saying the first name and then the crowd has to yell the last name. It's a bit bland when the crowd isn't so big. The AGF away following has a tradition of yelling "ass-hole" at every last name and it's with some conviction and will often outyell the home support. Funny little thing to build up the atmosphere but I doubt it's something that will "hurt" the players as it's not really personal.

I have a distinct memory of Kevin Thomson being booed onto the pitch as a sub during either Strachan or Mowbray's tenure, don't really remember if there was any context around it.

Bet we get Wales or Scotland for our last one

Called it!

 

Decent draw overall for us. We're definitely getting beat by Wales if they get through though 😄 Slava Ukraini!

Not being funny but given the nature of the draw it was highly likely they'd be with us once the first three selections in each group had been made 😝

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
