Just out of interest, why were very few people wearing masks inside the ground yesterday. Surely that should have been one of the rules of entry. It didnt really make us look good and may have reduced our chances of continuing the experiment with an increase in attendance. Had i been there I would never have done so without a mask on.

It wasn't mandatory to wear a mask in your seat.

Everyone was wearing a mask when moving around the stadium though.

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

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

6 trophies in 7 games? That must make him the most valuable player of all time 😂 

To think he started at the Boro 🤗

Who are we all going to choose? I reckon CT is nailed on to sponsor Johnson.

A multimillion Pound business wants me to hand over some more cash to sponsor an employee?  Next time I'm in Tescos I'll ask about sponsoring my favourite shelf stacker as well 🙄

https://www.mfc.co.uk/news/teenager-kavanagh-pens-first-pro-boro-contract

Callum Kavanagh signs a pro contract. Just a couple of months after signing up as a scholar. Gives an indication of how highly he is rated. 

Every U18 game I've caught recentlt (the latest 3 2 loss to Derby highlights are on their website) he looks a level above his age group.

U23s by christmas is my guess that's the test for me if he stands up to the test in the 23s I'd have him involved in next summers pre season he's good enough and big enough physically to get the fast track treatment if he stays injury free and keeps his feet grounded.

Any word on how NW is doing with covid?

Nothing on the club website, or Twitter (that I've seen).

I'm guessing it'll stay quiet until his isolation period ends. I'm sure if it turned serious there would be another update.

Can definitely see him moving to u23s pretty sharpish. Might even be in a month or 2 if oneill/ walker head out on loan

    • In fairness to Gibson, he's not likely going to invest a lot of money while Warnock is in charge. I expect he'll be given a modest transfer budget...just a bit more than he had this season. Its not going to be another Garry Monk spending spree, thats for sure. At the moment I think the club is in damage limitation mode until they can get fans back in the stadium and money coming through the turnstiles. I think its a case of better the devil you know. We're not likely to improve much next season, but another mid-table finish will do while the club gets back on its feet financially and is in a position to attract a better standard of manager.
    • Indeed. We can point to lack of quality and strength in depth, (which definitely were factors), but how often did Boro concede ridiculously soft goals, either due to inept keeping or defending...basic schoolboy errors? If we'd at least been decently organised at the back, (not watertight - just decent), we might well be looking forward to the play-offs.  
    • We finished exactly where I expected us to, in all honesty. Always found the talk of play offs baffling when we just about stayed up last year and didn't improve the squad in any meaningful way.  You can get promoted with average players and a great manager (likes of Leeds, Sheff Utd, Burnley) or you can just have a bigger squad with much better players than everyone else (Bournemouth, Watford, WBA, Fulham etc). Then you get Wolves, Norwich, Newcastle that have both and walk the league.  We had the money to make a bigger, better squad than everyone else and blew it... We've also had about 5 opportunities to get the manager right. Now we have neither and that won't be changing over the summer, so I think people need to be realistic. Is Gibson working behind the scenes to bring in an ambitious, upcoming Bundesliga manager to take over Warnock's steady mid-table ship? Find it hard to believe personally.  Foreign billionaire fancies an investment in the north east? Again, highly doubt it... and careful what you wish for anyway and all that. We're a mid-table Championship side until a big catalyst comes in. 
    • I just can't see where the money is going to come from judging from the club accounts and Bulkhauls horrendous year. Unless sales are happening
    • As mentioned above I do feel the lack of depth and quality in the first half of the season had an impact with us unable to rotate and rest players in our squad meaning we struggled in the 2nd half of the season. The likes of Mcnair were playing 4 games in 8-9 days with the international breaks but we didn't have any option to rest him given injuries and lack of quality to cover him. I think we were only a point off Watford when we got to January. Unfortunately our 3 loanees came with a lack of match sharpness requiring time to settle and then we lost the likes of Tav Dijksteel and Fry at important parts of the season. I agree with the second part I do worry with giving Warnock significant money considering he has probably got no more than 12 months left with us. It would be a huge gamble and if it goes wrong it sets us back another few years. However we need a fair few signings to even get on par regarding the standard of our squad for this season.
