Amazing, I love it. It's just a lovely relatively local getaway. I can't wait to go back. Literally first holiday we're planning post-pandemic. Friend of family runs a B&B there so we've been a few times over the years to stay over.

Yes agree lovely place Whitby stayed at a B&B a number of times over the years, goth weeks good a lot of effort and money goes in to those outfits.

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

I can't imagine that game getting approved by Hasbro...

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

Never been to Whitby. Is it worth visiting?

I always liked it - even as a kid.

Best fish & chips I ever had. They also have waffle stalls (used to have bananas, cream and syrup on mine).

Even though it was always busy, it still had that quaint fishing town vibe...very picturesque. You can visit the abbey (if you don't mind the uphill walk) and learn everything you ever wanted to know about Dracula (apparently it was the inspiration for Bram Stoker's novel). You can also get boat rides that go a short way out of the harbour and back.

Blackpool's nice...more your drunken weekend kind of place. Whitby is better if you want a more relaxed getaway (not to mention closer).

It's the perfect place to go to forget you're a Boro fan for a while, too. 😅

Even I’ve been to Whitby. Beautiful place and as was said previously lovely fish and chips. A must visit if you are in the area

Birthplace of Arthur Brown...  Bringer of Fire 🙂

Seen him live about 4 years ago, incredible that he's still doing all of his stage theatrics at his age!

Definitely an experience...  think there is a little more attention to Health and Safety since the well-publicised accident. Very lucky that copious amounts of beer were close by to put him out. Read somewhere that he was one of Bowie's inspirations, so in his own way, a bit of a pioneer

Unfortunately Whitby is now over ran with tourists which has taken away from its charm. Incredible place and somewhere i visit as often as i can (outside peak times).

I wasn't sure if this should go in the summer transfer thread so I've stuck it in here instead

https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/sources-middlesbrough-and-bournemouth-track-18-year-old-after-chelsea-trial/

"Championship duo Middlesbrough and AFC Bournemouth are both tracking Hornchurch winger Jili Buyabu with a view to a potential transfer, sources have exclusively told Football League World.

The 18-year-old was trialled by Chelsea over the summer and featured in a friendly for their under-23 squad against National League side Woking, but despite impressive he was not offered a contract by the Blues."

    • Nice to hear Wilder was complimentary of Leo in saying he has really taken to him. I know people might say people should have a a job on merit and not emotion but with Leo it seems he here on both counts.   I guess its nice knowing there someone in the set up who genuinely has the same passion and love for the club we fans do. And that he appreciated by the new boss as much as he is by us fans.
    • Well let’s hope the weather favours those making the journey and the predicted blank of snow holds off.  I can remember my early days pumped up full of beer travelling around the country to games in the back of freezing vans. The worst I remember was a crammed Luton huddled together in the compartment above the cab trying to stay alive. The spilt beer and urine had turned to ice sending everyone flying every time it stopped, took off or cornered. The only stops allowed were for petrol, or a pub so containers a pipe and funnel were essential equipment.  Although I did hire a new Ford Granda in 1980 for a 1 - 1 cup night match at Portsmouth. Terry Cochrane scored, latter we became good friends, but it was a toxic atmosphere and lost my bother who took off while being threatened. Drove around town until we found him being chased down the street by a few hundred agitated morons. Picked him up on the move but someone cracked the windscreen. I remember leaving work at lunch, drove down and back after the game and in to work next day. BORO mad back then.  
    • I didn't see the problem with it personally, whatever the rules actually are, I feel like it should be a goal. It's not a foul as its a challenge by his own player. It's not a head injury so it doesn't need immediate attention. And you're gonna have a hard time convincing me he's not making the most of that just to stop play anyway. Admittedly, he probably doesn't realise himself who's actually stood on his foot but note that by the time the shot hits the back of the net, there only seems to be one player who realises he's down and is asking for play to be stopped... the man who stood on his foot to begin with.
