Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

I can't imagine that game getting approved by Hasbro...

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

Probably because of his gammon esque quote about Brexit more recently, I would say. 

Some of us, maybe. But that issue is split down the middle and has been extremely partisan on both sides so for every person who will never forget what he's said and despise him for it, you'll have some who'll laud him for it.

I never got why so many have issues with NW

I think its because as boro fans what we really want in a manager is superstar celebrity Brazilian born in Yarm who has an impeccable record of success but has never managed before who will spend millions on Galatico moneyball signings from the lower leagues  whilst playing only local lads in the first team.

He should be good with media but tell us nothing. Be carm on the touchline but vocal. Have a rigid formation that he changes to suit the players he has. 

It's not too much to ask.

This is a read and a half on Grant Hall that bloke's been through hell and back the past few years.

 "Patella tendonitis is a common knee injury suffered by elite professional footballers, which results in a prolonged absence and carries a high risk of recurrence"

That is actually a horrible injury he had, almost worse than a cruciate in some ways if it reoccurs with us that's half his contract he'll be missing let's hope that he's over it for good. For me he should go into preseason as captain in a couple of weeks if Ben Gibson comes back eventually I guess there's a debate but in our current squad, even if Friend stays, I'd have Grant Hall as captain seems the perfect type of bloke to lead a dressing room.

I am happy to stick with Friend as club captain and Howson as team captain. Both seemingly highly respected within dressing room and good leaders.

Not the "pointers and shouters" Warnock will look to add but he can add them to the team without the need to make them captains straight away imo. Not all captains need to be shouters and pointers imo.

Hall can play his natural game of being a voice on the pitch though.

Interesting that Pears is yet to have signed an extension. No wonder we've been linked to 2 Goalkeepers so far, Phillips and Bass. 

I do think we are ok in the GK department if Pears signs. Stojanovic looks solid so far, think him and Pears for the No.1 spot, then Mejias as emergency/3rd keeper.

Pretty sure it was reported ages ago that the club can activate a +1 year extension to him so he's not going anywhere right now.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
