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

in years goneby we sponsored Leadboots, but judging by the Hype it would have to be a wingback 😄

I'd be keen for us to sponser a player again. It really helps attract attention to the forum.

I’d like to do it again. And my personal recommendation world be Sam Morsy

Understand Uwe's thinking but would rather go for an academy product like Tav or Wood...anything that can give them a boost can help their confidence and with it being first come, first served, the new signings will likely be snapped up by the commercial outfits, either way, the quicker a decision is made, the more likely the first choice is available

We got to send a few members to interview him too if I recall correctly.

The club's social media team are busy with the Twitter video as we speak

This is taking it a tad too far, don't you think?

Big man and a little man at the front carrying the casket I heard.

This stuff from Chubez can't be right I've been told repeatedly we're basically a non league post industrial hell hole who can only sign Dickens Inn barmen what is this nonsense from Akpom about jumping at the chance to buy a house and viewing Boro as a decent size club.

Wanting to follow his hero JFH that can't be right either he's only ever mentioned now as a former Leeds player must have been Leeds that got to that UEFA Cup final in 06 with Jimmy it can't have been us we're basically Wrexham the way people talk about us.

I guess he’s a bit of a fantasist.

Think a few of the non-title contenders in the Premiership might be taking the competition a bit more seriously this year  ..every penny they can grab will make a difference to some of them, so doubt there will be outings for the reserves as many times as in previous years...very noticeable that Newcastle, Everton, Arsenal and the like are fielding bulk of first team

Barnsley 6-0 down vs Chelsea. Think we avoided one there😂

To be fair, if you watch the goals, you can just see how Chelsea completely pressed the crap out of them and forced them into errors. We saw that from our game with them that that was probably the best way to break them, it looked likely at one point early in the game but then they scored and just looked infinitely more confident.

Not to say Chelsea wouldn't have beaten us but Barnsley really played into their hands.

    • Surprising as it may seem I do have a life outside of this forum!Read late on Saturday posts, in fairness others had succinctly put the deficiencies in his game.  He gets his game for one reason - we hardly have an alternative. Nice situation - for him
    • Brilliant shout erimus & my mates favourite player Not long after signing for the Boro he was mistaken as one of the members of the Great train robbery team, released soon after though  I should have thought of him, he would have definetly gone in to my fact of the day  He also ran a pub back in Swansea 
    • You were missed after the Derby game, it's good to see you back. Two goals in two games now, the lad is on fire 💪
    • Assombalonga wasn't a mythical striker who scored goals for fun at this level though.  He scored 15 goals and then 14 goals before he joined us.  He then scored 15 goals and 14 goals for us.  We got exactly what we paid for, it's just that we paid far too much for him in the first place.  I'm not sure what it is about this that people don't get, unless they convinced themselves he was a 20+ striker somehow? Hugill is a beast of a striker.  The best season Hugill has had at this level was last season when he scored 13 goals.  He's only ever hit double figures twice at this level.  When they played in the same team, Hugill got 6 goals, Assombalonga got 14, albeit Assombalonga played more minutes, but he didn't play double the minutes.  Ah, but Hugill is the better all round player.  Hugill has 7 assists in his career at this level, Assombalonga has 6.  Hugill is a beast, Assombalonga is rubbish 🤷‍♂️ I think the bigger problem we have is the expectations that we place on some of these players.  The likes of Boyd and McDonald were players who had done ok at a relatively weak level of competition only.  Rhodes did well at this level but in a different set up to the one he joined when he came here, and we made no attempt to replicate that - that's one reason why an owner shouldn't decide to buy players. I'd say that we have three strikers who appear to be much of a muchness.  I doubt any of them would hit 20 a season at this level, they'd all top out at around 15 I reckon.  All you can do, as you mention, is attempt to play to their strengths as much as possible, or accept that if you don't then you will get inconsistent performances.  15 goals a season from a striker is fine, unless you spent £15m on that striker, in which case that's your own fault for not understanding what you are purchasing.
