Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today ūü§£ūü§£ūü§£

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

One player who didn't go out to Austria was Ayala who missed the trip with injury

 

Hmm, diggerlad said the other day that he was there but doing a different routine than the others.

Pullis has said they left him at home because rest was more important that training

It's amazing to think it's 14 years today since we signed Hasselbaink. The day after signing Viduka. I think the Hasselbaink signing was the biggest surprise signing I have seen at the Boro. I remember switching on sky sports and totally out of the blue seeing it as breaking news.

 

It was such a different time in terms of how quick that kind of news travelled. I was playing football with some mates about 3 days later, and they were all Boro fans, but hadn't read the Gazette for a few days and all had no idea we'd signed Hasselbaink til I told them.

I remember we were linked with Kluivert thinking it was either him or Viduka that summer. I was thinking Leicester style concepts about our team that year. The only sad thing was Juninho leaving for Celtic that summer as well.

Juninho was signed around the same time too wasn't he? I remember being similarly surprised but after reading it on teletext rather than sky sports haha

Oh yes I remember that. That was with the signing of Maccarone. I miss the good days of teletext for news.

That's the one! Knew it was along with a big striker signing

    • If Smith signs i would imagine he would certainly be arriving as back up and not main striker. Secondly 10 goals and 3 assists for the team that finished 2nd¬†bottom in league imo is not the worst record. Yes he wont get pulses raising but Kieffer Moore hit 10 goals for struggling Wigan last season and in a better team his return was better and we (whether people like NW¬†or not) are better than Rotherham. I am not for one second suggesting Smith will score 20 goals for us like Moore has for Cardiff but he would not be worst back up target man if¬†that is what he arrives as¬†given his numbers last season.
    • 224 but ran out of time¬†ūü§¶‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹ It felt like I spent 5 mins just trying to remember Mark Summerbell's name, which wouldn't be so bad but he wasn't the person I was even¬†trying to remember.¬† I was actually thinking about Steve Baker and the League Cup semi final against Liverpool when he did that man-marking job on Steve McManaman.¬† I think Summerbell was the lad who was going out with one of Robson's daughters while he was playing for us?¬† Quite a few I didn't get from the last 5 years or so really.¬† Didn't even get a couple from the current squad¬†ūü§≠
    • Doesn't even hold him in high enough regard to tell him the truth about his future when he signs a contract waiver, according to Downing. I imagine that¬†feeling is, or at least was, more than mutual.
    • Maybe we can now put that statue up of Downing which Pulis thought¬†he deserved. Albeit I don't¬†think Steve quite¬†holds Downing¬†in such high regards as he¬†used to
    • "Rotherham United's Michael Smith is someone who is thought to have impressed Warnock and ticks several of the boxes of what the boss is looking for up-top." Worried next season will be an even tougher watch, can't say I've seen much of him like but average record and presumably a donkey type?
