I’m sick as a dog so cannot go tomorrow. So a Boro win guaranteed. Last games missed were Swansea at home in Premier League and WBA this season. Good omens.

I've been to all the home games barring one and we lost that so it hasn't made an ounce of difference, each to their own I suppose.

Hull are pretty competent so I expect us to lose as our manager and players are going through the motions until the flights leave for their Summer holidays. Beating the only club with worse morale than us on Tuesday didn't change much.

 

At this point I'm mainly enjoying seeing players like Fletcher and Fry improving and getting glimpses of what could be next year. One match closer to getting our club back, whatever the result.

I agree, on a similar note and for fun anyone else have daft little superstitions? Mine is i always leave a quarter of my pint and throw it in the bin . Then immediately have a bovril ( at home games). Have done since i had a rough pint at charlton fa cup 1/4 in 2006, we won 4-2 Makes absolutely no odds but i still do it!!!

That was my first ever game! Have vague memories of Rochemback’s and Morrison’s goals...

You chuck away a quarter of a pint at those prices? Are you absolutely loaded?

 

When I had a season ticket I had to go through the exact same turnstile every home game, and then not sit down in my seat until kick off (I could go up to my seat, I just didn't let myself sit.)

 

This was back in the Bryan Robson era so I'll have been about 12 or 13.

I shall be at a wedding today so won't be following this at all.

 

Semi interesting fact:

 

The last time I was at a wedding when we were playing was my own back in 2012. We beat Wolves at home 2-0 with late goals from Marvin Emnes and Scott Mcdonald.

It’s only a recent tradition, but I find that if Boro are playing and I avoid watching them, I enjoy my afternoon far more.

 

I had a choice, the match or shoe shopping with wife and daughter. Some lovely shoes in town.

    • I'd be shocked given Warnock's stance on him that McNair would be sacrificed for anything below £8m.
    • Surprised people are rating Paddy at 5m. I would not be selling him for any les than a 8 figure sum. I look at someone like Josh Brownhill at Burnley who done well since he stepped up but was he any better at this level for Bristol City than Paddy has been for us. I dont think so. And Burnley paid £9m.   Paddy is a versatile player which is a more welcome than ever given teams like to play various formations. Think we under selling Paddy at £5m myself.   my figures are probs best reflected by @Mr_Maz. Paddy: £10m Fry: £15m+ Tav: £15m+ Spence: £4m+
    • Yeah I’ve said a few times this year that if we have to generate funds the. McNair should be the player to go. It’s really out of him, Fry and Tav that would generate significant sums. As others have mentioned, he’s done decent at CB but at the same time, probably very replaceable. He’s then average in midfield. my only concern is that if we are challenging for playoffs next year, we need quality and strength in depth. Imo that’s one of the reasons we’ve struggled this year. 
    • They were horrible days, spending millions outbidding other clubs on transfer fees, throwing money around on big contracts signing mercenaries and challenging for Europe. Lost our identity you would have thought we had rich owners the way we were carrying on. No wonder the fans were unhappy.
