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

Agree with that but then there should be retrospective action taken against Branthwaite from Blackburn and Fulton from Swansea not to mention retrospective action taken against the Officials of those games themselves. I think Morsy "got away with it" because the FA fear that it will open a can of worms with Warnock as they know he would have been asked by the media and would have responded with the above citing consistency. 

As far as I understood it from the Branthwaite one was they can't retrospectively punish as the ref judged the incident. I don't think the ref in the Preston game saw what Morsy did, only what Browne did as a result of it.

I think it's mad that Morsy hasn't received a ban. I honestly don't think the FA give a toss what Warnock has to say as they only profit from him going off on one.

Didn't see this posted anywhere - branco is currently in intensive care with covid related complications. Hopefully he pulls through

I know there's a chance we only brought him back originally as fan service but I seriously do love Leo, the man has adopted Teesside as his home and that is beautiful. Can't have been easy in lock down after the couple years he's had. 

I hope he stays around for a long time.

I'm mad, just renewed my season ticket for next year. But in the process of doing it, I forgot that the club still owed me for the 4 matches that weren't played in the 19/20 season, nice £85 off towards the renewal!

Very canny saving. Better than finding a fiver in your trouser pocket u has forgot about.

Did you ask how season ticket sales are going?

Unfortunately i wont find out until June if i can return home or if i will be in London until Xmas for work so will miss out any discount if i do renew.

I did it all online so never got to ask.

I think if you got the season ticket in 19/20, that saving might be applied to any ticket purchases you make at some point, I might be wrong though.

I'm sure I remember them saying something along the lines of each game that we didn't get to attend will be paid back at the average cost of the ticket for the seat we had and as I was going through the website to renew today, each of the 4 match deductions were applied individually as ~£21 discounts.

@YusufBoro good work my friend. I enjoy watching them. Have you managed to get any ITK transfer news for us through doing these interviews? If not I will set you a challenge of finding us at least one name we are after before your last interview. Haha

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong,¬†but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look¬†stifled and¬†devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward,¬†the striker¬† with the best heading ability¬†is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had¬†a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.¬†¬†
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s¬†by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham¬†and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch,¬†I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term¬†and¬†long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person.¬†People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp¬†agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that¬†he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him ‚Äúunprofessionally‚Ä̬†upon¬†leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh¬†that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
