Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

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

If this stat is legit then it shows that our 1 season in the Prem had a squad cost of almost 80 mio. On top of that I guess you can add the general running of the club, academy and the 5 million we spent on improving the stadium facilities. And then there is the transfer deficit in the two years leading to promotion. You get a lot of people asking where the 100 million pay off has gone and here is the answer. https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&q=%23Boro&src=typd

 

We get roughly 75 million in parachute payments after relegation and that has to be spend wisely. Luckily we somehow managed to balance income and outcome on transfer fees last season despite buying players for almost 50 million if the rumoured numbers are correct, and this summer we look like coming out with a pretty big transfer income thanks mainly to Gibson and Traore.

 

We will still have a rather big wage budget and general costs compared to Championship standard so the parachute money falls in a dry spot and our sensible transfer business this summer should help the club to a sound financial footing in the coming years even if promotion isn't achieved.

Adrian Chiles’ BBC 5 Live show are talking Boro today as part of their Championship weekly feature.

 

It’s from 11:30 with a mix of Championship & Boro guests.

 

might be being a bit cynical here, but we could well be a sideshow, he is a well known Baggies fanatic .

Slightly off topic from other threads, but just curious to what people think of the captaincy since Gibbo left.

 

Gibbo was a young leader with respect of the rest of the team, Grant is still around the 1st team and never publicly had the armband taken from him, and the last couple of games has seen GF wearing.

 

Just want to throw another couple of names into the hat for the 'C'

 

Clayton

 

Howsen

 

what you think?

People seem to forget the captain is the captain every day, not just for the 90 mins on a Saturday. For me Gorgeous George is thright man for the job. Intelligent, articulate and the consummate pro. Does all the right things regards healthy eating and his own fitness regime between seasons. He seems to command a lot of respect from the players around him. Not saying Howson doesn't do these things too but I think Clayton is still a bit immature for the role

Cracking points. And fully agree, I was just raising the question because with Gibbo gone and Grant on the fringes it would be interesting to see who would take the armband if Friend wasnt available. Howsen has done it before and Clayton seems to be ever present this season so far. Looking beyound those i struggle to see who has the chesnuts to wear it. 

Downing doesnt strike me as someone who is interested in the role and likes to just get on with his game.

    • Can’t see Akpom being in the squad. 
    • Its hard to know fully what the consequences of something like that would be. The Premier league product without the big 6 would not be as desirable to TV companies especially overseas, there's no doubt about that.  Obviously then the income of every other club would drop and big name players would move on.  Commercially it would probably be a bad idea but wouldn't it be great if sporting competition and integrity were put above that.   
    • I certainly think it's an interesting thing to consider, if we broke off from them or simply banned them from competing alongside us until they put this stupid idea to bed, how the broadcasters would react. Who would they follow? Sky, for example, right now are protecting the Premier League with all the power they can. It's beneficial for them to do that. But if we split from those 6 and they had the opportunity of buying into what those clubs do next or just sticking by the Premier League and the EFL, what would they do? It seems like it should be an easy answer, follow the clubs with the money, follow the potential viewing figures they would generate. But is it as simple as that? I'm not so sure.
    • 1. Was it Malley that was highly rated a year or two ago? If it was I'd give him a go alongside Howson. I'd also give Coulson a run a leftback, we know what Bola is all about, and under JW Coulson seemed to be on an upward trajectory. If he puts in 5 good performances maybe we can keep him as cover for Bola and not worry about needing to sign leftback cover in the summer. Archer Fisher, Hall, McNair ,Coulson Howson, Malley Kebano, Watmore, Bolasie Akpom 1a. No idea, pesky Romans. 2. Negredo purely because at the time he seemed the perfect striker for Aitor's system (that he used during the promotion season). Valdes is worth a shout just because of his previous experience in the game and what he had won. 3. Who knows, but if we finish lower than 9th next season, that would be pretty bad.
    • Amber list countries then, if he has to quarantine.
