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!

    • I mean those are some pretty dreadful collective ratings for the players. I think it tells a pretty accurate story. Individually, players were not at the races and didn't give a toss on Saturday. But the changes to get us back into the game were ultimately more diabolical in terms of taking action. Don't quite know why the Gazette have decided to go along with the whole 'more forwards but somehow still no chances' piece that Woody came out with. You don't automatically solve your creative problems with more forwards and you certainly don't solve them with strikers like Britt and Gestede.
    • Just want to say good luck tomorrow lads, you have a busy week ahead. Hopefully will be watching it all play out on BT Sport.  
    • End of this season players will be leaving  has their contracts come to an end. Other players will also be leaving wanting away and will be fetching hardly any money to the kitty. Woodgate will more than likely stay on because he is one of the cheapest about and although he has managerial status, seriously the backroom boys will still be running the show. Possible drop down a division losing loads of turnstile funds. I reckon in one word I would say the coffers will be empty and "Survival" is the medium/long term vision here.  
    • I don’t understand how people can say that Gibson is not a footballing man. He’s been involved in the game for nearly three and a half decades. If you think he’s not a good footballing man well fair enough that’s your opinion but he is definitely time served at this point which qualifies him as a footballing man in my opinion.
    • I have to say I echo what @Changing Times and @p_mards have said in regards to appointments in key areas. In my opinion the biggest threat to having a consistent long-term vision is Gibson himself. He is not a footballing man and thus the decisions he makes are by and large poor. The sooner he relinquishes a bit of control over the footballing decisions the better. Getting a director of football into the club would be a good start. As we would then have a football person making football decisions.
