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 don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
