Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today ūü§£ūü§£ūü§£

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

On the topic of Keepers, St.Pauli play Hamburg tonight. It's live on BT,  it'll be a decent game anyway, but it'll also be worth watching to see how Stojanovic fairs.

St pauli clean sheet from our man I hope we give him a chance in summer

Yeah it was in the end. He didn't have loads to do to be fair, but looked solid. There was one moment where if the shot was on target they would have scored, but that was more down to how good the strike was.

I'd like to see him given a chance next season. Why plough £1m on him then not make the most of that.

Every time howson has a decent performance the gazette does an article on him. Completely ignoring how poor he's been for weeks now. Become even more of a PR piece for the club since the lay offs.

I don't even think he was that good last night? Pivotal in the 2nd goal yeah, great run up to and into the box, combined well with Johnson and found his man in the middle which doesn't happen very often with us. But other than that moment I really don't remember him doing much of note?

It's tough to award a man of the match in a game like that but my choice would probably have been Spence. He wasn't great from start to finish either, nobody was. But Spence probably had more good moments in the game than anybody. He won the free-kick which lead to the first goal and was involved in the build-up to the second ensuring we retained possession in their third of the pitch.

Howson has been dire for weeks and it's weird that he keeps his place when everyone else is rotating. He looks like he could need a rest.

Thought Howson had a good second half. First half ball was bypassing him entirely but that's not really on him, that's the curse of being a midfielder in this team sometimes.

Second half he got hold of the ball a lot more and I thought played quite well.

Hasn't had the consistency recently that he usually does though, I agree there, he's had some rank bad games recently and some decent games too. Is unlike him, you can usually guarantee a 7 every week from Howson.

One time Boro loanee Harold Moukoudi has scored 2 in 2 games in Ligue 1. St.Etienne are having a bit of a crap season, but he's been one of their better players so far.

For some reason I read that as herold goulon and thought surely not! Prompted me to look up where goulon is these days, in Malaysia apparently

RIP Willie Whigham....  a character and a decent player 

Indeed he was in goal the very first time I watched a Boro game

Used to wind up the opposition by lighting a Woodbine if he was having a quiet game...  ran across him a few times when I used to go to away games ..  had a "colourful" vocabulary, but always happy to mix with fans and got pleasure from the number of people that acknowledged him.

Old school Keeper with a real character. Legs like matchsticks but agile and really good at this level until Jim Platt came along in the early seventies to win the shirt from him. As with Downsouth he was the regular Boro Goalie when I first started watching the Boro at Ayresome Park. RIP.

    • I could be wrong but I'm not sure the actual accounting record would touch the P&L side (until the amortisation is accounted for). If they paid all ¬£12m upfront the bank/cash account would take the hit, but you'd have an asset appear in the accounts.¬†Even if they didn't pay for all ¬£12m upfront they'd most likely record the asset in full and then have a liability account (Liverpool) which would be reduced if and when they paid (using the bank as the other side). But as @ScarBorosays the amortisation (and the expense - P&L side) would still only show as the original cost split between the contract length in this instance ¬£2.4m regardless of when they actually paid.
    • Under normal accounting standards for intangible assets, transfer fees are amortized on a straight-line basis over the period of the players‚Äô contracts. This was how Derby got into trouble by assigning a residual value to reduce the annual¬†amortized cost to the club. Let's say you are allowed to defer the payment, the costs would have to be assessed¬†over a reduced period and therefore be higher in the out years, big risk if you don't succeed.
    • Surely depends how they account for the actual transfer fee payment, can‚Äôt remember if they put it through operating costs or not (and Cba to check right now). If the transfer fee is incurred in the P+L as it‚Äôs paid then there is definitely a FFP benefit to back ending payments.¬†
    • It'll be a loan deal for a year as Mr_Maz says.¬† If it's got any link to FFP then I can only think it's to help Fulham's FFP position for the coming year.¬† I don't believe¬†they've sold anyone for any serious money so far, and¬†they would ideally want to keep the net transfer spend as close to zero as possible, as their wage bill will be higher than the parachute payments they receive.¬† If things don't go as they plan this season then they will probably sell players next summer, which would balance things out for FFP and also cash flow, so the transfer of Wilson then will be fine.
    • https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/cardiff-city-youngster-who-really-21140778 If I was a Cardiff fan I'd read those paragraph's as Brown will probably be gone and Boro's rejected bid wasn't far off, it would be interesting if we sign him AND¬†Kean Bryan. It would definitely add some depth to our left side especially if we're looking to play 5 at the back more often than not.
