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 don’t get having “second” teams at all.

Imagine this:

My grandparents moved from Liverpool to Boro with their first child. My gran missed going to the Pool games so started watching the Boro games even though she was still a Liverpool fan. Middlesbrough were her 'second' team as she remained a Liverpool fan first - even though she went to Boro games for decades.

Liverpool actually were the first team I cheered for, watching the European games on the telly with gran, but after going to a few Boro games I switched allegiance, but still always cheer for Liverpool unless they are playing Boro. Hence Liverpool are my second team.

My Dad was of the same view as Bruce's.

Hated football as "they're all fannies" and only liked rugby.

They don't help themselves by rolling around like they are getting violated by a tiger everytime they are touched.

Often think a rule should be to try and stay on your feet at all times and let the refs ref.

laying on the floor pretending to be injured, trying to convince everyone how harmed you were by the slightest touch  is so embarrassing if you compare to rugby.

Watched a yt vid recently of Souness's best tackles. It's like a different game entirely back then. Wouldn't want to go back there, but definitely all the flouncing is a scourge imo

I probably haven’t posted on here in a good 10 years but lurk regularly, tonight was at a bus stop in south london with A guy who turned out to be Nicky Bailey. I was probably about 12 when he played for the boro and he was absolutely delighted that a boro fan recognised him. Had a good conversation about him and boro back in the day under Mowbray..

Delighted to hear from you again Tim, yes been a while.

Nicky Bailey good contributor to the forum always passed on VictorBoro's fag packet team predictions, seldom wrong.

Though in fairness may have been his wife.

Any juicy info😉

Think Bailey finished his real footballing days at Barnet?

According to Alan Nixon we’re getting £3m in compo from Mel Morris to be paid on the sale of the ground

That'll be a welcome boost to the coffers.

Just need him to actually sell it first.

I have a sneaking suspicion that he will 'donate' the ground or something similar just to avoid having to pay the £3m

    • Found a Dutch defensive midfielder Mees Hoedemakers who may fit the requirements, unfortunately again in the highlights his defensive ability not shown.  The Italians in the previous post and this player have valuations of 1.2 million euros or less if Transfermkt can be believed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTj5iZhK0Rs Also an Australian box to box midfielder I'd recommend Boro have a look at is Angus Thurgate, a big improver last season, became more of a threat going forward and  definitely handles the defensive side as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGb-QtRhfas
    • Choudhury looks he would be a top signing if he wants to come here, someone said he's rejected us twice though. Here are two other defensive midfielders I've come across on database searches, both Italian. Pity that their short highlights don't include their defensive efforts, but they both look like they can control play in possession well. Both also have been loaned extensively by their parent clubs, they might be interested in a permanent home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do1xIWsDD8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYhm0Rt6PTk
    • Clearly Parker not the only coach that isn’t in charge of recruitment 
    • Just a thought but....   General concensus is we need a lcb and at least two midfielders. And in reality the only ones we've been "linked" with are greaves, choudhary and hannibal. All British based players. We also need at least one more striker, and we've been linked with hoppe, Henry, larsen to name but 3. I wonder if there are possibilities of us finding a gem or two for the defensive and midfield positions from abroad too. Especially given the eredivisie link and we have only really been linked to 1 player from the Dutch league. 
    • Me neither, and I suppose it's only failures if we don't end up getting the business done anyway.  If we are prepared to make sizeable bids for the likes of Henry, Greaves, Larsen, then I have to believe it's nothing to do with what we haven't done so far, and simply because they like the players.
