'Other Boro stuff'


Recommended Posts

I'm that sick of hearing about Derby now and sick of their obnoxious fans on social media that part of me actually hopes they get liquidated.

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 🤣🤣🤣

I was just coming on to post the same thing, it's an awful situation but I really am losing a lot of sympathy for them in the last day or two.

I'd probably feel really guilty if it actually did happen, but they've really wound me up and I'm starting to fear they'll actually stay up and get away with it all.

Relegation is all I want for them, but the goodwill is chipping away.

I start to think the same, but imagine if our whole fanbase was judged based on a few social media idiots and FMTTM... it wouldn't be a fair summary and it's likely the same for them too, but this really has brought out the worst of them!

The frustrating bit is seeing all the fans that are now crying save our club who a couple years ago were posting the league on strings meme. They've done this to themselves.

Poetry boy, who gained traction for his poem about Derby's plight, has now had his receipts uncovered and he was mocking other clubs while they were splashing big too. 

It's just the utter...I don't know...find it pretty *** cheeky like.

Yeah I know, I just try to keep in mind how much of a minority they are... it is tough though!

Most of their fanbase will be reasonable people and as usual its the clowns on twitter who give everyone a bad name. Its only really those fans who I'd like to see suffer with the club being liquidated. 

With the real problems going in the world though I would find it hard to get upset by a football club going bust but I'm probably lacking a soul.

So if I have this right all the Derby fans are asking for is for Gibson to drop his claims, HMRC to cut their tax bill by tens of millions of pounds, exit administration without selling any players and if they just get these small concessions we could all have played our part in #SaveDerbyCounty?

To my knowledge every other club in their situation has had two options be it Portsmouth, Bury, Bolton or Wigan and here are those two options:

Option 1: Sell your assets and pay your creditors allowing Administrators time to find a new owner.

Option 2: Cease to exist.

Why do Derby fans and their administrator feel that they are entitled to an option 3 in this situation?

This has gone under my radar as things I'm mildly aware of until yesterday when I viewed the Derby debate in Parliament and then watched MP's beginning to give out indirect criticism of Middlesbrough.

It's boiled my *** and clearly Gibsons when quite clearly other parties have lent on their connections to give out this one dimensional message Boro are the bad boys.

It's clearly not our fault if Derby are liquidated, we didn't put them into administration in the first place

Seeing this do the rounds on twitter, Derby fans have lost their damn minds...

It's genuinely scary how widespread the belief is within Derby that Gibson is the big bad wolf, your football club's in administration and your administrators have not done anything to change that fact in 3 months maybe direct some pressure/anger onto them?

Or alternatively write Mel Morris a letter asking him to hand the stadium/training ground back making a potential sale more likely due to the increased asset value it would bring to the table.

Just checked..  it is a school for pupils with learning difficulties, so sorry George ..  I should have looked first 😔 

Think it’s pretty well written for a Derby fan anyway. First time I have seen them post something without calling someone a ‘Bamford’ weird *** they are

    • 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
