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.

    • I mean those are some pretty dreadful collective ratings for the players. I think it tells a pretty accurate story. Individually, players were not at the races and didn't give a toss on Saturday. But the changes to get us back into the game were ultimately more diabolical in terms of taking action. Don't quite know why the Gazette have decided to go along with the whole 'more forwards but somehow still no chances' piece that Woody came out with. You don't automatically solve your creative problems with more forwards and you certainly don't solve them with strikers like Britt and Gestede.
    • Just want to say good luck tomorrow lads, you have a busy week ahead. Hopefully will be watching it all play out on BT Sport.  
    • End of this season players will be leaving  has their contracts come to an end. Other players will also be leaving wanting away and will be fetching hardly any money to the kitty. Woodgate will more than likely stay on because he is one of the cheapest about and although he has managerial status, seriously the backroom boys will still be running the show. Possible drop down a division losing loads of turnstile funds. I reckon in one word I would say the coffers will be empty and "Survival" is the medium/long term vision here.  
    • I don’t understand how people can say that Gibson is not a footballing man. He’s been involved in the game for nearly three and a half decades. If you think he’s not a good footballing man well fair enough that’s your opinion but he is definitely time served at this point which qualifies him as a footballing man in my opinion.
    • I have to say I echo what @Changing Times and @p_mards have said in regards to appointments in key areas. In my opinion the biggest threat to having a consistent long-term vision is Gibson himself. He is not a footballing man and thus the decisions he makes are by and large poor. The sooner he relinquishes a bit of control over the footballing decisions the better. Getting a director of football into the club would be a good start. As we would then have a football person making football decisions.
