Transfer Rumours, Summer 2014 "Didn't we do well!"

Recommended Posts

Nothing will match last years thread. OneBoro should release it as a book.

 

Didn't fmttm release a book with just threads from the website in it? Sure I got it for Christmas one year...

Last years thread was epic but heartbreaking in the end. I'd rather have this years thread, although a few more rumours would have made the summer pass by quicker.

Without going back thru 1373 pages does anyone remember who has to pay a visit to Binns Window, or does anyone want to come clean

Denmark beating Armenia 2-1 means it is the first time since 1999 that they've come from behind to win a qualification game (both World Cup and European Cup)

Pleased with the transfer window. Just hope we haven't shot ourselves in the foot re budget and FFP - don't trust the FA and they probably ignore anyone else who breached FFP whilst making an example of us.

 

We now need the team to gel and find some form. :)

    • Nugent vs. Hull, Rhodes vs. Bolton, Forshaw vs. Reading. What a season that was. Makes me sad thinking back now.
    • Adam Forshaw against Reading with literally the last kick of the game which for me was the goal that effectively got us promoted. Plus Maccarones 2 in the Europa League
    • I spilled my beer when Job scored the opener in the Carling Cup Final, was pretty hysterical after that.
    • In descending order: 3. Emerson vs Sunderland at Roker Park Roker park wasn't a happy hunting ground for Boro or at least it wasn't when I went. I'd never seen us win there prior to that game. An early start on the beer and the short journey up there in the back of a friends transit van had us all in high spirits long before the game kicked off. When Emo strode onto that ball 30 yards from goal like he was sauntering along the copacabana on a lazy sunday afternoon and unleashed a piledriver that nearly tore the net off it sparked riotous scenes in the terraces behind that goal. The fact that it was old school all standing meant that bodies and limbs were flung here, there and everywhere. 2. Massimo Maccarone vs Basel We needed to score 4 goals with just over an hour to play but weirdly it felt like a formality as soon as Viduka pulled one back just before half time. In the concourse at half time I lost count of the number of times I heard fans saying 'hey we can do this ya know'. It was almost written in the stars that we would pull it off. That togetherness and universal show of belief culminated in extraordinary scenes in the 90th minute when Massimo received the ball on the right corner of the penalty box and drove the ball into the oposite bottom corner. I went that mental I ran down the steps and kissed a chaps bald head three rows in front of me. 1. Massimo Maccarone vs Steau We couldnt do it again could we? Due to a late change in rotation I was able to attend this game but was not in my usual seat in the North Stand. Instead I had managed to get a ticket for the West Lower next to the Boro dugout. The unfamiliar surroundings added to the incredibly surreal and unprecedented celebration. When Downing whipped in that ball from the left hand side and the gleaming bald head of Massimo rose like a salmon at the back post to power a diving header into the far corner I took leave of my senses and celebrated like I'd never celebrated before. An incredible moment that epitomised what football is all about.
