Chien lee wanted to invest in boro but steve gibson said no hes the richest owner in the league and owns barnsley https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/jan/24/steve-gibson-chinese-investment-middlesbrough

I didn't necessarily mean foreign investment, just someone who wants to invest in the club.  It won't happen and just feeling narked as we as a club are struggling.  Its.horrivle having to reset again and again

Keep your hair on man.

 

I never once said 'its my priority'. I have been following Boro since Ayresome park and have experienced pain before.  As for keeping our identity, by that you mean the feast to famine of how we have been operating for a good number of years.  Well I disagree, I don't want my club to do that.  I also didn't mention a foreign investor, I also never said I want instand success.  Wrong end of stick and manipulating words come to mind.  Out club is a joke at the moment, I'm actually glad woody is head coach, I can't wait for the season to start but the fact that we are having to sell before we can buy (AGAIN) is a tad frustrating, I'm a project manager and we have a thing called 'lessons learned' after a project.  The club need to give it a go as we fail over and over again.  

 

But yeah let's keep doing it mate, as long as we keep our identity, we won't have a bloody club if we carry on like this.

So why is our club a joke? We are an average championship club, adapting to life without parachute payments and not trying to gamble with FFP. I think you are massively overreacting, if anything this period is protecting our future by being sensible. An invester would still need to work within FFP and would only bring uncertainty

Is he though? Or is he just trying to create a sustainably ran club that fits within FFP in a reality without parachute payments

I like your thinking but money talks, let's be honest. The championship owners are now quite a rich bunch.  We are falling behind now, I really hope that we do well with the young lads this season, it would be great.

Over reacting?  It's an internet forum mate.  Our club is a joke as we have reset so many times and made so many mistakes.  That is ridiculous, read back at some of the other chaps posts about Tony Pullis and his cut of money, all the sugar coated nonsense we get, deep down mate we are a bit of a joke.

Of the teams that went up last season, only one of them were free spending. I would prefer stability and building a squad and identity the right way and I don't mind if that takes a few years.

For the record I wasn't accusing you of being ridiculous but just commenting on the general consensus that we need big spending and instant success

We really don't, no club is perfect. Very few managerial choices work out in football hence the big turn over of managers generally and yet for a club with a relatively small fanbase we have stayed within the top 2 leagues consistently.

In a time where bigger clubs like Leeds, Sheff Wed etc have struggled we have still had success and promotions. We are in a better position than most, loads of teams would love our chairman and our record

If your priority is us getting investment and spending money, then you completely don't get what our club is about. I would rather stay in the championship for ten years with ups and downs and keep our identity under Gibson than sell out to a foreign investor.

The need for instant success is ridiculous

What is our identity?

Steve Gibson got married this weekend and had a big bash at rockliffe. Probably explains where all the money has gone. Ronan Keating wouldn’t have come cheap. Who needs an attacking midfielder when you can have the musical genius that is Mr Keating. ?

It's a sham wedding, all of it is a front to funnel FFP money into the club! tin foil film GIF

If it was anyone else KM, I would think your last sentence was sarcastic. However I entirely believe that you see Ronan Keating as a musical genius.

    • What do you mean by you installed the Win8 iso onto a flash drive? The iso is meant to be burned to a DVD-rom.  It should be an executable file for a flash drive.
    • In no particular order:   Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood!  
    • Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB.   I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now 
    • God, I couldn't even pick just three.  Lots to choose from over the years, including some of the great choices selected above 👍 Hendrie's two against Luton, bye bye Ayresome but hello Premier League and The Riverside.  Ravanelli at Wembley 96/97, it looked like we were going to do it finally but then we didn't.  Festa, a whole week later, at Old Trafford against Chesterfield, when it looked like we'd avoided an absolute catastrophe only for history to repeat itself.  Rav's last minute penna winner against Villa at the beginning of the week of destiny.  The whole first 5 mins of the Liverpool League Cup semi final in 97/98.  The first few minutes of the second half against Oxford in the same season.  Festa's last minute equaliser at Southampton when we were down to 9 men for a 3-3 draw in the 98/99 season and Brian Deane's goal to put us 3-0 up at Man Utd a few weeks later - I think that was the last game Man Utd lost that season before winning the treble - "We're gonna win the league", well maybe not.  Boksic twice up at St James park against the Geordies a couple of seasons later.  01/02 season against Man Utd in the cup, hardly any bugger there because there was some argument about the ticket pricing and the fact that it was a lunchtime kick off on the telly, two goals in the last 5 mins to win it, hurrah!  We had some good times against Man Utd back then for whatever reason.  Speaking of which, the following season at home against them on Boxing day, all three goals were decent but the Job one at the end to clinch it because of the second or two it took for Maccarone to head the ball across to him was nice.  Same sort of reason but earlier in that season, against the Mackems at home and Nemeths second goal (our third) when he kind of ran through on his own to score in front of the North Stand - I think it was just the sense of anticipation really. 03/04 season in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.  The first 6 or 7 mins as a whole but I was partly hysterical throughout the entire game really when I think about it.  It was ours to lose after that start and unfortunately we seemed to experts in finding ways to do just that up until that point.  Same season, scoring twice in injury time maybe to get a 3-3 draw at home against Leicester and another win at Old Trafford, Juninho scoring twice with his head! and Job getting the winner after Man Utd came back to level.  How did Man Utd win so much back then when we used to give them a going over on a regular basis?  Weird, football, isn't it?  04/05 season, not a goal but Schwarzer saving that penalty at Man City in injury time on the last day of the season to get us into Europe again has to be right up there.  The following season has to be the European goals already mentioned above, the games as a whole were mental but scoring late on to win not just once but twice is about as crazy as it gets.  Humping Man Utd (again) and Chelsea was also a lot of fun. After that point things got darker and those amazing moments never seemed to come around, at least not for me anyway.  There were always odd games or whatever but we were in decline and you could feel it.  We had some good games under Mowbray and obviously we were in the hunt a couple of times during seasons but we always fell away.  I think you're probably waiting until the 14/15 season for some more great moments - Leadbitter's freekick at Huddersfield was fantastic, Bamford's goal at Derby and the own goal at Norwich, the play off games against Brentford.  I stopped going away from home by this point though so most of those weren't experienced in the same way, the home play off game of course was though.  Following season, both games against Brighton had goals which got me going and against Derby over Xmas with the two goals in two minutes.  Nugent against Hull and Forshaw against Reading, mental. Probably loads I've missed out as well.  I think I just enjoy us scoring goals in any circumstances 😀
    • In order of age: 1. Ravenelli's in the FA cup quarterfinal that guarnteed we were into our first ever FA cup semi. 2. Zenden's penalty in the league cup final 3. Nugent's goal against Hull
