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

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.

    • WOnder if this will be with immediate effect. Football is in absolute turmoil
    • The Carlisle News & Star have just published an article on the ESL which sums it up rather nicely...  
    • I don't know whether you've misunderstood my post or whether I have made my point very well, but let me make one thing clear. I don't think anything about this proposal is good, its a disgrace and I'd be over the moon if the 6 of them were turfed out for good.  What I was saying is that all this moral outrage should have been happening years ago. The game that most of us grew up loving has been gradually eroded over the last few decades. It isn't about the fans or sporting integrity at the top, its about pure greed and has been for years.  Just because the current system is better than the new proposed system it doesn't mean I should be happy with it. To counter a few of your examples, to take Hartlepool as a club, I can remember a time where Wimbledon climbed up the pyramid and fans of clubs that size could always dream of doing the same. That will never happen now.  You mention Leicester (I knew someone would use them as an example). They won the lottery when a billionaire bought them and they broke FFP rules to get promoted. How many clubs have sold their souls to foreign owners and got themselves into debt trying to do a Leicester. Its not a good model to try and copy really.  Finally, you ask me why I bother. Well its in the blood isn't it? There's no logic behind it but the majority of the magic has gone from the game. I grew up watching us be crap in the 80s but even then you could dream about finding a good manager, and crop of good young players and doing what Forest did under Clough. Now its either find a billionaire or simply exist.
