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

I can't imagine that game getting approved by Hasbro...

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

Owing to the funeral of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh next Saturday's game at home to QPR will not take place at 3pm

Eh? So when will it take place?

It may have been more apt if it read "Owing to the funeral of Football on Teesside next Saturday's game at home to QPR will not take place at all"

Earlier or later on the same day I'd imagine.  Ridiculous but hey ho.

Yeah seems funeral service will last approx 30mins with a 3pm start.

Therefore maybe games can kick off 4pm unless they want all kick offs at 12.30pm and completed by 3pm.

Next Saturday's games could be played on Friday night to avoid clashing with HRH The Duke of Edinburgh's funeral

Hope it is Friday.

Benefits me, means it doesn't clash with my girlfriend's birthday and I can look like less of a ***.

Glad to see you've got your priorities sorted. 😁

Anyone else think it's shocking that NW doesn't know the names of the top lads in the u23s? And it's only now 2 or 3 will get a chance to train with the first team.

Agree. I know I've harped on about this before, but I don't see the point in having an academy if its main purpose is to churn out players for lower league teams to sign.

Boro were lauded for having one of the best academies in the country at one time and I do find it sad (and perplexing) that more youngsters apparently aren't good enough to take that final step into the first team.

Especially when you see some of the signings we've made over the last few years.

Nooooooo, 12:30pm on Saturday, that's even worse than it was.

Why are you even arsed about the game? It's completely meaningless.

Never going to get a better chance to watch every single match in a season.

Not a chance I'll be going out for a meal for a while. I went into the city centre for a prescription today and the place is bloody rammed. Seen the thing about a bar opening up at midnight last night in Huddersfield that had every table packed up for people going for drinks. I'd rather sit at home and watch the Boro and wait and see how the vaccine really copes with people coming out of isolation before I take that risk.

    • Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.
    • Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers. Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.
    • It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are.  If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him. Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.
    • I think you are reading and interpreting what you want to get angry about rather than what i actually said. I expect every manager to have his approval on all signings even Warnock, even though he wont be here in a years time. Peltier was signed as cover for Fisher who we knew was out for a long while, we absolutely needed him. He clearly can plug a gap, not ideal, but he did ok at LB. we absolutely needed another CB. McNair is useless in a back 4 but ok in a back 3. Like I say, I expect every manager to plan for their team and have their approval over the choice of an owner. As for Scott, we have no way of knowing how successful he will be, what his Job description is or how much autonomy he will have, you are peeing in the wind if you hazard an answer. Gibson has always been hands on,, i don’t see that changing sadly. Since 2006 the owners vision has been wrong more than right, as have his appointments. Don’t take that to mean I am ungrateful for his efforts, without him, we’d not have a club, but goodness me he is due a right decision. I know he is trying his utmost but is having to do so with an imbalanced squad. He does not sign players, that isn’t his job it is Gibson and Bausor that do a deal or walk away. They have tried hard to fix the final third with more pace, flair and finishing, unfortunately the defence has been holed as a result.    I am not suggesting Spence and Coulson were great players, but they are better than nothing. Are you suggesting Warnock prefers Jones as a LB to Coulson? He doesn’t, he is having to make do and mend.  We have no holding midfielder. Howson is doing a job but it is not his best position. He is not refusing to sign foreign left backs at all, you are spinning his comments. He said they haven’t found anyone that fits the bill after being unable to fund UK based LB’s. Why you interpret it as a refusal is odd when he had no say over Morsy and some other signings is beyond silly. Getting a player to agree to come knowing they are going to be mere cover, from abroad especially, in a pandemic too, when you have no money, will not be a doddle, it isn’t like a pic and mix at the cinema.    Get off his back and support his efforts for now, he is not trying to set us up to fail, he has the best record of any manager in the league, but that was with his mix of players, blame the players for their part in the poor performances too and the goals we concede. Warnock deserves some criticism but it needs to be for his failures, not those of others. You can rejoice his departure come May which isn’t long for you to wait. 
    • Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around. Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously. Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.
