Good on Maddo, but I can see this ending badly as he mistakenly divulges confidential information on the radio and gets sacked from both roles

I love Maddo on the radio. The man has a lot of passion, clearly loves boro. Plus, his pronunciation of even slightly complex names is hilarious, him pronouncing Lukaku as Lookookoo is still my all time favourite.

You can't say OneBoro doesn't provide top quality content from its users

 

I lie awake at night thinking about a lot of this stuff  :upside_down:

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.

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

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.

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

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.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
