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

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

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.

    • I'm pretty sure too. If any coach / manager openly talked about throwing a game, one Tweet would be all it took to cause a huge scandal and put that person out of a job. But a canny one might pick a certain team and tactics that would guarantee they'd struggle. The players might think something was a bit funny...but there would be no proof of any shenanigans. 😉   In England's case though, I have to say Southgate strikes me as too honest a person. I'm sure he has way too much integrity to even consider something like that. But his cautious nature, team selections and tactics could end up having the same result. 🤷‍♂️  
    • Exactly... and even if we do draw and get an 'easy game' in the next round, there's  no guarantee we win it going in on poor form. Plus we would only have to play a strong team in the following round anyway, with Italy Belgium and whoever wins France's group on that side of the draw. You can't hide from the best sides for long in the Euros. Tonight's all about a good performance and getting the fans back on side for a home tie in the next round. It's guaranteed to be a tough game but we might as well fly home now if people are too scared to play Germany in a one off game. 
    • England need momentum and fast. Winning convincingly breeds that.    I’m pretty sure it’s only fans that discuss trying to plot an easier route through a tournament by throwing games. It’s a sure fire way for players to lose their confidence in their manager. a win is the only good result for England tonight.
    • Thats pretty much what I was thinking. They may not have scored many goals, but technically they're still a formidable team. I could see them running rings around England anyway.
