West Ham. Wigan. Fee for Hugill agreed. Negotiating over wages etc. Not done yet. Not dead yet.

That's an Alan Nixon tweet if I've ever seen one, right?

Hill scored an incredible volley against wigan so I think they must clearly be basing their decision entirely on that

I thought he'd turned them down flat because they only offered him half of the wage he's on at West Ham?

Middlesbrough are interested in Algeria international right back Mehdi Zaffane. The 27 year-old is available for free after his contract at Rennes expired. Nottingham Forest, Norwich City and Celtic are also reportedly interested.

I'm mild mannered reporter Clark Kent ?

I did wonder about this though.  What is Boro's identity exactly because I'm not sure we have one?

Pretty sure our identity is a backs against the wall torrid defensive team that's difficult to play against, it's the only times I've witnessed success at the club anyway.

CT did you post that you read the club account when they were published?  If you did Does it say how much the directors take out of the club?

No, I tend to just have a look when someone mentions something about it on here or if I'm bored and want to be nosy.  I think Danfromdownsouth is the man you're after as accounts and accounting are his expertise and I think he does have a good look through them. 

The accounts do tell you how much the directors take out of the club in the Director Emoluments section and also I suppose via any dividends paid.  As a rule MFC doesn't really pay directors,well there are only two anyway - Gibson and Lamb.  One of them gets £5,000 (I'm assuming it's Lamb) and the other was remunerated through another group entity (I assume that's Gibson via Gibson O'Neill.  I don't know if that's the info you are looking for or not.

You're way too cynical for me these days Foogle.  I have to be careful to make sure that this forum doesn't bring me down.

Why don’t you just use the emoji tool on the side. Unless you are doing it purposely so they don’t get the ‘rep’ point for want of a better phrase 

I’m not happy with fact that that silly score count has returned

Maybe that is what the 'new direction' is trying to address, give us an identity so down the line people think of a locally based footballing side when they think of MFC not a club that pays over the odds for second rate players just wanting a big payday and who play rubbish football, (that is Pulisball not under AK, where we did play some good football)

Cheers CT I’ll have a looking when I’ve got time.

Just seen a few people saying Gibson pockets the transfer fees when talking about the possible fry transfer. With the club making a loss most years he would of had to give himself a big wage/bonus to do so.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
