Annual Message from The Chairman

Recommended Posts

Well that time is fast approaching when we hang on to every word that Steve Gibson utters following the end of the season performances, where he shares his views and plans for the following season and rekindles our passion for all things Middlesbrough FC.


What are you expecting to hear from him this time round?


Will there be comments which will possibly come back an haunt him at a later time and will "smash the league" statements be a thing of the past?


I have a feeling that this time round it will be a lot more subdued in terms of aspirations but a firm belief that everyone will be backing TP and trying to ensure he has the tools(I use that word lightly) at his disposal for Boro to step up next season.


I also think that SG may mention that players will have to be sold in order to generate funds for The Manager.


I do not think that there will be any admittance that we got things wrong.

I doubt he is going to say anything about transfers in and out. It will be a message where he states his disappointment of the season and that we didn't fulfill the goals we initially had. We will move forward and Tony Pulis has he full backing. There will be praise for the fans and for Pulis for coming in and steadying the ship showing that he is the right man to take us forward.

It's not an annual thing. I don't recall him doing anything like that before last year.


Yeah, the only other time I remember him doing it was after Mowbray was sacked.

    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
    • Have you heard any names of our transfer targets or which players we're most likely to cash in on? The Gazette seem very keen on discussing Darlow and Lenihan so it seems that there's some substance there.
