'Other Boro stuff'

Recommended Posts

I see Sheff Wed habve joined Derby and Villa in selling their stadium to a company owned by the club owner/owners.

These were the 3 clubs reported to be on verge of serious FFP breaches and all now used same loophole it seems to avoid any sanctions.

Was reading stories in May that so many clubs doing this now is forcing the EFL to look into their financial rules to stop it happening, but I don't know whether anything will come of it.

It shouldn’t be allowed. The whole point of FFP is to stop clubs going to the wall by running up to much debt.

whats going to happen if the derby/Sheff wed chairman walks away not only leaving them millions in debt but with no stadium too?

It's a good job Gibson made a deal out of it and the EFL essentially said 'meh'. Now they know for sure they are allowed to do it and have thus done so.

Yeah, one of the theories was that SG was testing the water so he could also do it. You know they would come down on us like a ton of bricks though if we tried it!

Really wish he was here in some capacity, but glad he's doing well. I know the article states he didn't necessarily want to go straight into coaching after he left Sydney F.C, but I think if we'd have given him an opportunity he'd have taken it.

think he regrets not joining Liverpool, if he had I doubt he'd have ever come back to us.

Boro link for Blues (Bishop Stortford)

Blues have entered into a partnership with Football League side Middlesbrough to provide a pathway for their academy players to progress to the professional games.
Martin Carter, Head of Academy Recruitment at the Championship side, will be in close contact with Blues’ management to identify potential talent throughout the South East and London.
This could lead to players playing for the Blues’ first team, and if they progress to a high enough standard, then going up for trials at Middlesbrough.
The academy players will be visiting Middlesbrough’s prestigious training facility Rockliffe Park, for coaching sessions and matches with their teams of the same age. Boro has a similar partnership in place with Northern Irish club Portadown and has close working relationships with a number of other clubs.

Do people reckon Luton tickets will make it to general sale? Being a Friday night and on TV I figured they might.. 

I doubt it will get to general as it will be a new place for many people

    • You know I stopped saying things like that when I left Marton Road infants school back in the early 60s.  😄😄
    • I agree with you. I think Hugill did go to ground a lot but probably because when he played, the closest person near him when ball was played to him were the fans in the stands. Probs thought best i can do is win a free kick. QPR and Preston showed when you use him properly, i.e in a front 2 he is actually very decent at this level. A lot better than he showed here imo.
    • Has anyone been watching these? They have been quite decent listens. They have had one with Mowbray and another with McClaren, Beswick and Harrison as well so far.  
    • I think Hugill was all too often on the ground and I couldn't stand that in a big physical lad, more-so than the regular diving player... but I also think he'd have scored more goals under Woodgate than he did Pulis. Though you could probably apply that to a lot of strikers.
    • I disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
