unfortunately not mate. the substance was short lived.

On Braithwaite: He has been very good in training. He has not told me he wants to leave boro so I will take that as he wants to stay and goes on to reaffirm he been best player in training.

Asked if loan market a more likely option than Permanent: We will see. Both options will be explored.

On Captain: He confirms George Friend will be Captain. That is both club captain and team captain. Calls him a fantastic leader and a great example to the young kids.

Of course George is captain. I can't imagine why we'd change that.

Because he's not very good?

Neither was Leadbitter, he was still captain until he left.

He’s an incredible role model and completely ‘gets’ the club, he should be club captain until he leaves/retires.

That's different though, Leadbitter was made captain during a time when he was one of the first names on the teamsheet, and deservedly so.

Friend as club captain is fine, but shouldn't be a guaranteed starter.

I dont think him being a team captain does make him an automatic starter. There are plenty of examples of players that are team captain but are not guaranteed starters. Valencia was team captain at Utd but was not a regular. Jagielka at Everton last season. Morgan at Leicester is another. 

Friend being team captain does not mean anything in terms of him being a guaranteed starter imo.

But each of them were appointed to the role when they started every week. So even though they've dropped out of the team, like Leadbitter, they are never actually stripped of the captaincy.

For me, when you actually appoint a captain, you choose someone who will start when fit.

Friend was appointed captain on Leadbitters sale, I thought, which means he was picked when he was something that was chosen when fit.

Just a thought, has Woodgate not thought to ask Braithwaite what he wants to do? 

It would seem like a pretty important thing for me to find out if I was the manager.

    • I always found this crazy it would be £10 you switch your VPN on it's suddenly £5 🤯
    • Thank you as always for the info. When you say there are 2 lists of 8 or 9 players. Does that mean we are looking to sign 8 or 9 new players?  Probs make sense if 5 out the 7 out of contract players are leaving along with a handful of loan players.
    • Do you believe any of the other out of contract players will be offered a new contract if we stay in the Championship? 
    • Whilst the noises from inside suggest Ayala will play I still dont see it... Leeds have stepped up there interest along with Fulham and Crystal Palace. Gibson not allowed to play etc and Djiksteel prob wont be seen until next season. The club are actively pushing ahead with targets... 2 lists around 8 or 9 players on each list dependant where were playing. Also Everton have asked us to keep them up to date if we sell Fry. The feeling behind the scenes is he will move on and money will be used to strengthen in the summer whilst helping balance the books. Howson will only sign once were safe. Other things going on but nothing set in stone. Once it changes in will share.
    • Boro weren't on the red button for quite a while, honestly. I thought it was a flat £10 for all because they upped the coverage?
