What do you actually know though? It's not a dig if it sounds like that. Not a lot of people know much about the clubs finances in the first place and it's just a matter of days ago where you said you expect half the championship to go bust iirc. I just think that you are buying too much into the doom and gloom and I stand by my statement that I don't think we will see even 12 clubs across the Championship, L1 and L2 combined go bust. I very much doubt that our entire survival hope was based on spectators gradually being allowed back in from october and no new restrictions being imposed. If that was the breaking point then there is no way we would have spent money on players this summer and we would have been selling players instead.
If we've done our summer business assuming that we'd have 10k fans a week for the rest of the season from October then Gibson and anyone else involved in that decision making should be having their mental capacity tested. That would be one of the most reckless actions I've ever seen from our football club and as NB4 says, I simply can't see a smart businessman like Gibson doing that.
So after improved performances (going forward anyways) Boro face the Reds of Barnsley for the second time in under 3 weeks.
The last outing which was at the Riverside too was a poor display in a very short lived league cup run and Barnsley ran out 2-0 winners with relative ease
But surprisingly their league form is twice as bad as ours, considering they’ve only half the points that we do.
Barnsley uncertainty ahead of the game with Gerhard Struber 'on verge' of New York switch may affect their preparation for this game
BORO have not won a home game in the league in the last 11 attempts
Our defending this season has been so ugly that on a dating website it works be described as having a ‘Great Personality’
BIG 3 Q’s
1) Will we win?
2) Should Johnson start?
3) Is scone pronounced S-con or S-cone
A VIEW FROM THE OTHER SIDE
