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

Hat trick by Coburn. 

I heard good things about the young striker Callum Kavanagh as well @Smogzilla. You seen much of him? Thoughts? 

Oh yes, Kavanagh has a huge amount of potential and a great attitude from what I'm told. Fingers crossed he develops well because we could have a real star there if things go right.

Kavanagh along with Wood become great on football manager from 2022-2023 season  onwards. Hope Kavanagh, Wood and Coburn get good loans in L1 next season

All our goals were quality finishes, can't pick a favourite, Stott with another lovely finish too.

Some nice assists too. Coburn with a lovely hook pass to assist Kavanagh. Encouraging 👍👍👍

Hello,

Can someone assist me on a discussion i am having with a friend.

Was there a podcast that Stu Downing did with Schwarzer i think last year where he confirmed he fell out with Gibson towards end of his boro stay? He mentioned his father demanded a meeting with Gibson but the meeting never took place as Gibson had backtracked on a promise or something?

I didn't listen to it but I thought it was more about him falling out with karanka? Though I'm not certain.

It was inclusive of the end of his Boro career, surrounding the contract situation which stopped Pulis from starting him, even bringing him on in the first half on occasion. He said something along the lines of having a gentleman's agreement for a new contract that led him to waiving the automatic increase to his salary so he could play again... then the new contract never came.

This is the podcast:

Yeah so clearly his dad and Gibson has a massive fall out given he refers to it as a “naughty conversation” and downing adds he not spoke to Gibson since.

All very odd that is going on in the same summer we are appointing the son in law/ brother in law.

Another handy win for the u18s. 

That Pharrell Willis needs to be fast-tracked into the first team.  The amount of happy related puns available could keep the Gazette in business for years.  And me on here actually.

We also have a player called Fenton John too, and that name brings me great joy.

    • I disagree that we don't have players good enough to play the ball in a more controlled and purposeful way, particularly since the January transfer window. I wouldn't say any of our defenders are particularly bad on the ball at all, and all of our forwards/wingers thrive with the ball at their feet, not in the air. Not to mention we probably have the worst keeper in the league at long balls. The way we play is completely counter to our individual players strengths and it's purely because it's the only way our manager  knows how to play.
    • we need the players to play with it on the group in tight areas to. most of our squad players dont and just lump it. because of the instructions they are given. that is probably because like we seen under woodgate, they are not good enough to play and will lose possession and cause us problems. the main thing with woodgate tactics was losing the ball and instantly putting ourselves in trouble and outnumbering with guys all over the shop. NW stopped that by making us more rigid in shape and telling them to not dally and lump it over the top. at least that's how i see it in a simplified way.
    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
    • with fry playing we never seem to get done in behind the defense. without him it seems nearly every game. dijksteel and tavs work rate and energy on the right side. they dominated every team we played on that side. we missed one of them but once both were out team never looked the same. next season if we keep bolasie and he is linking with tav and has dijksteel over lapping all the space those two will create i'm sure he would be thriving. we get the correct forward in with him and i'm positive for next season. easier said than done though. we need a keeper who is competent in shot stopping and commanding his area.
