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

I just googled it.  A *** youtube team, of course Brunners is a supporter 🙄🤦‍♂️

Hey man, they're a legitimate non league football team now! In the FA Cup and everything. The best known & best sponsored non league team I would imagine, with sponsorships from Football Manager & Adidas.

They even have their own version of Adam Traore.

I wish I had a second team at times it's an absolute ballache supporting Boro.

Area has no other remotely good sports teams besides a semi decent speedway team or if you like your rugby trek up to watch the Falcons, I just follow Yorkshire in the cricket and a couple of American sports teams can't bring myself to give a f about another football team sadly I wish I had it in me to sometimes because there's nothing pretty about watching pub team football or 50 yard punts week in week out for going on 4 years but *sigh* I persevere...

Right now am I watching my local team FC Midtjylland play CL qualifiers v Young Boys Bern.. Good game, but 0-0 at half time.. 

I follow FCM, but am not active on the forum, and I don't watch many league games, even though we are Danish Champions... 

But I follow the Boro through ups and downs.. I watch all games possible, even on dodgy streams like yesterday... 

And oh, I reached 1000 upvotes here today 💪😎🤘

Well done mate 💪

I go to like 10 FCM games live in a season... And between 1 and 4 Boro games in Non Corona times.. 

And Then the Odd National team game.. 

But most my games I watch on the tele.. What about you, mate? 

Not really much of a football fan, more of a tennis man myself 😉

Nah, Boro, obviously, season ticket for too long to pass a sanity test.  In the dim and distant past I'd get to plenty of away games as well but that's not happening at the moment.  I'd also watch Hartlepool, Darlington (when they were league clubs) and some of the non-league sides if Boro weren't playing or they were away and I wasn't going.  The others were just to watch a game though, I'm a Boro fan only 😣

Actually, I suppose I'm an England fan as well but I've never really thought about that being the same as Boro.

Go and watch Bristol city occasionally Weston-super-Mare ground is only about 600m from my house so I see them to get my football fix. But it’s only the Boro I care about

Apart from Boro and the mighty Randers FC, I follow Arsenal and Flamengo (my wife’s 2 teams) and go to Brighton matches occasionally with mates although they’ve never done it for me as a team.

I went through a phase of watching Southampton years ago, when I lived there. It was a good time to follow them as the likes of Shearer and Le Tissier were just establishing themselves, however I was in the crowd when Saints scored against Boro and whilst everyone else was leaping around, I just stood still.
Fortunately Bernie scored for Boro I think we drew, but I knew then that I couldn’t seriously support Southampton, I stopped going regularly after that.

So really he shouldn't have even still been in the stands on Tuesday. Worrying given his age, regardless of how well we can ensure he's looked after. I hope he gets through it and also hope he hasn't passed it on to anyone else.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
