What might be a better idea is to have a card that isn't a season card, just a cheap membership card which keeps track of your ability to attend each match.

We are exploring the introduction of Members Cards which would ensure entry would be the same as for Season Card Holders and see cards automatically activated for games, alleviating the need for collections.

Also, is this how the Season Card works for cup games? i.e. if I buy my ticket online with my connected account, will it just activate my card for tomorrow night's game?

Yes that has been the case in the past for me.

The song is from 1995 
 

 

Am I the only one who loves that song? 

The Tees side darter Glen Durrant also has this song as his walk on song ?

Karanka's PR lady would send stories about him to the local press (Gaztte, BBC Tees, etc) without realising he's friend with a lot of  the guys.. so they'd tell him immediately what was going on but the club wouldn't allow him to respond to any of it.

He spoke very well. Lots on Karanka..

Imagine if Karanka was a people person... not stubborn, but good at man management. Then he would hav been fantastic. Cause his results were pretty good and the Riverside was a fortress. 
Everything felt right untill the first fall out up to that (was it Rotherham) game!

Very easy for Downing to cite specific things after they have happened The whole Stoke and Palace mentions. In my opinion he comes across as a bit arrogant, someone who wasn't in the team as there were better players available and didn't like it.

I was pretty excited when he first signed for us, as in the 10 role at West Ham he was very good. But it became apparent quickly that the system we would play under AK would not suit him. Which then posed the secondary question of whether he was actually AK's first choice option. Which from the interview it is clear he wasn't. 

One thing that did really stand out for me was when he was talking about the whole contract situation. He seems to have been very annoyed at the club themselves and it does not paint the club in the best of lights.

My opinion of stewy went down listening to that. Just sounded so entitled, like he had a divine right to be playing. No real recognition that people were booing him because his performances weren't up to scratch.

I thought this, bit of a victim complex almost. How can he say he had 'a lot of arguments with every single manager he's played under' and then make out like Karanka was picking on him for no reason

Was very very average in his stint here for how much he cost and did Karanka even want him, it's pretty much established Gibbo was the one who brought him in

Karanka's the best manager we've had for years and probably will still be our best recent manager in the years to come, the chairman bringing in players that the manager either doesn't want or know about just never works really and maybe if AK had it all his own way it'd have never got to the stage of him walking out and who knows where we'd be right now

I mean incredible by Downing, easy to forget he was 1 of 3 senior players who had enough of Aitors training methods when we were in the Prem claiming to the chairman we'd get relegated Aitor needed to go (This was March we were already done) unless even the Karanka sacking story was made up PR?

People's only defence of Downing devolved down to expectations you'd expect from League 1 players he keeps the ball and runs around alot with no pace left in his legs. He needs to look at himself he was on the pitch plenty under Pulis and Karanka he was bang average big disappointment especially now he's going around Tarrentire and Radio Tees looking for sympathy.

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
