'Other Boro stuff'

They're a fans group who sit in the North stand (Block 15 if memory serves). They occasionally do flags and banners, but aren't really as impressive as the Red Faction. 

Ahh okay, I've never been in the North stand so that's probably why I've never heard of them. Red Faction I agree do some brilliant displays and they come across as a decent group of lads from the time I've spent in the South stand!

Twe12th Man have official links with the club as well, so they have some benefits, such as their own designated bar in the stadium, which stays open and plays music after weekend matches.

I forgot to ask if the bar was related actually! I didn't know it was an exclusive thing tbh, thought it was one you could book (shows how much I know haha) I did read somewhere on here a while back that some of the lads left that group and started the Red Faction but not sure how true that is.

So judging by the twitter reaction, sounds like Boro have managed to royally cock up the ticketing system. Pretty standard.

The website is so radged. My mate logged in half an hour early, got our tickets in his basket within a couple minutes, and then he couldn’t click checkout... Tickets then sold out... But then suddenly he was allowed to buy the tickets! Utfb what a day 

hopefully they’ll make it a lot smoother cause that was real stressful

Luton tickets sold out in 10 minutes

Think there was a fault with the new system. People on Twitter are saying to keep refreshing the page.

Yeah I had very similar issues... Got in early enough but just wasn't letting you go to checkout as saying maximum number exceeded. Got sorted in the end though.

It's not surprising but every time one of the players give these kind of interviews this summer is it just me or do they always seem to give a thinly veiled criticism of the previous regime? To me it really shows just how unhappy the camp was and it goes to show that pulis had lost the players by the end - though I think that was obvious on the pitch.

I don't think I'd describe Britt's as thinly veiled ?

I think with someone like Britt, it's clear the regime didn't suit him and he already showed how he felt about that publicly, looking back at when he got subbed for Friend and then we lost. He didn't throw a tantrum, just sort of sighed. Players are allowed to feel like they're not at their best or being given the opportunity to show they're as good as they are. But after an initial spell of Britt seeming like he might down tools just after Pulis was appointed, he's picked himself up and got on with it. He has ever since. In a world with players like Braithwaite who just don't bother trying to adapt and only play for themselves in those situations, you kind of have to appreciate players like that (even if it's entirely what they're paid to do).

Overall, it's great to hear someone like Britt so positive about these things. He's not George Friend who tries to invoke positivity and appreciation into everything they do. He's more publicly emotional about the way he feels. I remember after the Ipswich game last year that was on tele and the Sky fella asked him if he can go on and keep scoring the goals, his response was tinged with determination but little happiness. Simply "Why not? Why couldn't I do that?"

Now when they're speaking to him, he's got a massive smile on his face, that cheeky grin that Bausor would kill for, he's not trying to prove anyone wrong, he's hoping to repay faith and enjoy himself.

Britt's a really good lad.

 

I've said on here before that I have a friend of a friend who knows him quite well, he was always happy here, never actively looked to leave, his only problem was ever with the manager. He still ploughed on and eventually forced his way back into the team ahead of Pulis' favourite. I genuinely can't believe the stick he gets off some of our fans given how good his attitude has been throughout the whole thing.

Clear difference in attitude between him and Braithwaite. Britt got his head down and worked hard to force himself into a team that didn't suit him. Whereas Braithwaite jumped ship at the first opportunity.

I agree. Can't fault his work ethic. It has been obvious the squad weren't happy with the Pulis regime but I'm hoping we'll have a much more exciting season with a more attacking set up (hopefully a couple of more players too) I genuinely think he'll bag more goals this season under Woody. We need more players like him in the side, great attitude and I think it will help in the dressing room!

    • This might be controversial, but I'd like to see us name a stand after Jack. I think that would be far more fitting for our history and heritage than the current N S E W designations. Not sure who we'd name the other three stands after, but a fan poll by MFC would probably come up with the right results.
    • My memories of Boro were as a muddling spluttering Championship Club (Division Two in them days) that were always close but we knew that we would never be promoted and to be honest didn't expect it. Outside of the top two but somewhere in the top eight or even six and that was Boro.  Big Jack came in and suddenly there was an entirely different atmosphere around the place. Here was a winner, a fighter, someone that wanted to win and be a winner. The story of the White Band and introducing it meant that in a dull world of lookalike kits suddenly Boro stood out. Colour TV's were becoming the norm for those who could afford them and for those still viewing in Black and White (as I was) those few minutes of Boro on Sunday telly suddenly shouted out to you that Boro were on the box! The success that followed was as unbelievable as it was incredible and had the Club been better run at a higher level it should have been built upon. Regardless of all that because of Big Jack everyone knew who the Boro where.
    • Yes a very sad loss, always remember away games especially that Big Jack would  collect the training tops from the players. He had a very good and pacy team at one time
    • Just read the article, Warnock has given his ideas and the recruitment team are going to have a look. Therein lies the problem, our recruitment team are ***. British players with no resale value in coming. 
    • In essence I think thats exactly how it would have to work. He has already said that Spence can go right to the top and if I was Djed's father I'd be telling him to listen to the old guy and take in everything he tells you. Players with the type of ability that Djed is starting to show glimpses of can go way of the rails (he only has to look at another Player in the current squad to see how talent alone isn't enough) unless they are managed and nurtured correctly. Coulson, Tav and the others could all benefit from his pearls of wisdom and if they are that good I don't think NW would shoot himself in the foot by not involving and developing them. At this level they are top end Championship at the very least with the potential to be far better. Young players also benefit from having a few old seasoned pro's around them.  We know and Warnock knows that he won't be a long term Manager due to Father Time so its an ideal opportunity for him to prove himself once again but at Boro he also has a unique situation in his career. Previously he would manage a club for two, three, four years and get the boot as all Managers do, its the nature of the game. With him at the helm we won't be in the mess next season (assuming we survive) so a remit that involves longer term development after he is gone doesn't have the immediacy of his previous roles. Planning for the next Manager that "follows on" from him should be a part of that role so that we evolve and stop pinging around from one extreme to the next with Management appointments. Just to be clear #ABW.
