'Other Boro stuff'


Recommended Posts

Kavanagh seems a prospect like, tonnes of goals at youth level. Looks exactly the type of striker Wilder likes to play as well.

Superb article from The Athletic published today... Gives you a real sense that something special is being built. We've been crying out for this for so long.   Michael Walker 2h ago  2 

It is emotional blackmail and the situation has been clearly fabricated, if you look at the handwriting its obvious that Wayne Rooney wrote that letter. 

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

The administrators mentioned the amounts when they were on the radio (possibly talksport) shortly after being appointed.

I had a look and there doesn’t seem to be any direct quote about this figure of money. This week ex Chrystal palace owner Simon Jordan quoted the figure and said it was rubbish, not the dispute but the fact of £45m being the reason or the cause.

its clear that Steve Gibson has some reason to go after Derby County now or in the future, it just seems that £45m is a rumour figure. Apparently the financial amount we are Supposed to be seeking is either 1/3 or 1/4 of the total money we would have got had we got promoted.

Its a reasonable figure but as we didn’t get promoted and would have only got the last place in the playoff with that pullis team it’s only my opinion but I’m not sure if it isn’t something else that isn’t being mentioned fully incase of legal disputes.

It would be quite funny if after all this time the whole thing was a secret ploy between Ashley and Gibson for Ashley to get a new football club at a cut price and Gibson to get a nice cash windfall.

Someone casually start a "I'm not normally ITK, but I have heard that..." about this on twitter.  Pleeeeeeeease.

According to Rob (of FMTTM fame) - Gibson rang him after he contacted him on behalf of a group of Derby fans and confirmed that the £45m figure was correct. A direct quote from a post Rob made "He also told me how he arrived at £45m. It makes total sense - I can tell anyone that asks me privately but is based on an average value of the worth of promotion to the Premier but also divided by the bookies odds if we made the play offs and not Derby."

I don't see someone who runs a fanzine as a major source of his income and takes part in the weekly Boro media making up a phone call with Gibson. So yes I do believe it.

If Gibson thought he would get that kind of money in those circumstances from any club I think it would be very very wishful thinking as it’s all based on hypothetical notions. The EFL has already punished Derby for those infractions and they have accepted them.

Clubs cannot sue each other directly in the courts, only through EFL binding arbitration. As the EFL have already punished Derby it will take great amounts of evidence that the EFL couldn’t in a month of Sunday’s ignore, as this would well and truly open a can of worms the EFL would want kept shut.

Im not saying it isn’t true what he may or may not have told Rob from FMTTM, just my honest opinion based upon how the EFL and football runs itself and Gibson’s past entanglements with points of justice with Footballs governing bodies.

Whenever clubs get in to disputes with each other it’s the League they belong too that acts as the independent arbitrator and their judgement is final.

However you can then take the League body to court based on its findings and judgements, but you have to prove the judgement was incorrect based on how they arrived at it, not that the judgement itself was wrong.

A court can find that the EFL or other body is wrong on an interpretation of how it came to that judgement but all it can do then is return it to the EFL to judge again.

The ultimate piece of power that the EFL has is that it can say to a club, if your not happy then fine go join another league.

Mentioned it before on here but Rob told us about this call the day it happened in our MSF group, think it was before Christmas.

Rob is one of those who is quite worried for Derby going out of business, from our conversations. I don't think he'd make up a call that helped to somewhat change his mind about the situation.

This isn't a dig at you by the way, but I do trust what Rob says. 👍

It’s also common practice in legal claims to submit a ‘claim’ for more than you want. There’s an old saying in economic psychology  “if you want to borrow £10 ask for £20”

@wilsoncgp after Gibson’s previous tries to get footballs authorities to act on their own rules when they don’t want to. Do you think that Gibson really would try to get £45m this way?

It is interesting that Jordan says £45m is not the money we're after but Rob said it was. Could be someone misinterpreting something there. Either way, I don't think that's what he's going to get and I think Gibson must know that too.

For the hard graft and the way they are fighting and for the sakes of the fans I would like to see them stay alive and get through this with a club to follow.

Many of us remember the harrowing times when we nearly went out of existance would not wish that on anyone, one mans actions can cause untold repercussions something we might all witness soon with Putin

It’s like being back in the 80’s again, football clubs almost going bust, Russian troops back on the borders, living with a 3 minute warning. European allies saying one thing but doing another. Oh happy days, I didn’t think days like that were gone forever, really hoped I would be much older or gone before they did.

    • imo, anyone who criticises Marcus T either doesn't see us playing very often or doesn't have a particularly good understanding of the game. Not meaning to sound harsh, but his contribution to the team is very clear to see. He's not perfect by any means, but then not many players are, especially at this level. If you're just simply looking for players to criticise then there are usually about 8 or 9 players you should start with before Mr T each game  
    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view
