Which stand do you all usually sit in at the stadium? I ask because I'll quite possibly have met some of you before!

Sat block 29a north east lower corner for around 7 or 8 year until they introduced the family zone, then moved to block 28 north lower for 4 year, then moved to the west stand block 84 for 3 year, this season we are moving into the north west corner block 87, tried to find seats as good as our first spot for years we only moved from 29a because of kids being up and down every 5 minutes, west was a great view but the atmosphere is dire, saying that there was games last season when we had nothing to get excited about and even the south had lost interest for long periods, hopefully find the right balance this season, tried the south west from time to time but it just doesnt seem right for us sitting that end and shooting towards us first half after well over a decade of being in the north end.

I think the north stand is the only one I've never been in haha. I agree with you about the atmosphere, everyone was fed up last season and rightly so! Will probably be a lot better this season if yesterday night is anything to go by! Looking forward to it and I hope the seats are better for you!

Heard this was a great performance all round the way Hackney started for the U18s in their preseason Im not shocked he's putting in great performances for the 23's and cup games just carrying on the end of last season when he was thrust in a reminder he's 17 years old his progression is beyond u18s for me he seems set for the 23's the 1 main chance he got in pre season in Austria just looked a bit weak on the ball I think Woody thought the same. 

A recent addition to the U18s is England U16 winger 16 year old Joe Ridley anyone looking for an attacking prospect coming through keep your eyes on Ridley throughout the season I think he's getting fast tracked through fairly quickly I don't like putting pressure on the really young ones but Ridley's got some buzz around him.

Tldr: Academy doing real good, almost scarily good.

17 in the North usually, sometimes 19.

Covered the game. Quite a low key affair up until injury time but some nice interplay from Boro at times. Both teams passing out from the back. 

Game turned with the introduction of Isaiah Jones and Sam Folarin in the second half. They brought electric pace on both wings which pinned Villa back. Jones speed won the penalty at the death when he blitzed passed his full back and was subsequently hauled to the floor. Neatly put away by Ben Liddle.

 

A decent start for the Boys!

76% of fans seemingly disagree with you. Bit of fun, innit.

Though I preferred it when we randomly blasted a bit of Song 2 about 30 seconds after the opposition kicked off and were on the attack.

God knows who is picking the rubbish they play in there, doesn't fit with the demographics of the fans. Goal music takes away from the noise from the crowd and I much prefer coming out to Seven Nation Army!

Goal music is shocking tbf. Pig bag is also a horrendous song to come out to.

Good job we don't technically come out to Pig Bag then.

(We come out to Perfecto Allstarz - Reach, which is a remix of Pig Bag by Paul Oakenfold. Interestingly QPR also come out to it, I wonder who ripped off who? I know we've been using it since we moved to the Riverside.)

Google is suggesting that QPR started using it in 1998. The source which gave that info (a QPR forum) says we ripped it off them, but that doesn't seem to fit with when we started using it as we moved to the Riverside in 95.

(Yes, I'm bored...)

If you want to be even more pedantic, you could say we come out to Reach Up (Papa’s got a brand new Pigbag) by Perfecto Allstarz.

But yeah, think it’s a poor song to come out to. A pretty anonymous song that is only played due to its popularity coinciding with the Riverside’s opening.  Doesn’t help that QPR come out to it as well - as if it didn’t already lack individuality. If we’re to come out to a song, surely it should be something that has some link with the area/club. Maybe something by Chris Rea.

    • I think the biggest problem for me, other than the awful results, is that it's happening with Woodgate in no way sticking to his guns with his vision of how we wants the team to play. It's fair enough seeing it as a long term project where it's worth short term pain if there's actually any semblance of something being put in place, but it's a different starting line up in every single match and no clear style of play. I think we'll be in the relegation zone by the end of Monday night, I'm not sure we'll get out of it. 6 of the starting 11 from Saturday are out of contract in the summer, so it's not playing with a view to the future.  
    • Just looking at it, will Gibson be more likely to act after Leeds? Give the new man time to do something and try to get a bounce before a more winnable home game vs Forest and then away to Charlton.
    • IMVHO Woodgate is the short term problem and Gibson is the long term problem. Can anyone see anything really changing under Gibson? Given recent history? He did save the club and sometimes it's better the Devil you know but these days Gibson seems clueless or disinterested or both and if he is can he please accept it and if anyone even half competent is interested can he do what's in the long term best interest of the club and either appoint a good team and step back or sell up. 
    • Thanks mate. I knew I'd heard it somewhere and wasn't making it up - I just had no idea where to find it. Something about it had just made it lodge in my mind at the time. Edit: and if it's 12 games, Gibson needs to act today to have him fully in place before Wednesday's match. I never thought there would be a time when I would want Warnock as our manager but he would keep us up. He isn't looking for a long term thing, so it would suit both sides - but only if Gibbo acts whilst there are still 12 matches left for him to manage. 
    • Mid Table? at the moment I'm looking at the bottom 3...But Boro being Boro we're liable to run Leeds ragged
