Ironically, he actually bet the doctor that he'd pass it as well ?‍♂️

Raf mentioned another 2 players at rockcliffe. Maybe they are close and they are going to do multiple announcements at once?

Say this every time. They don't need to rush, they'll put it out when their social media people think it's best. It's done, that's all the rest of the people at the club need care about.

Seem to be a lot of boro fans wanting Lyle Taylor on twitter 

Am i crazy or is it insane to be drawn into a bidding war with Brentford for a striker who's 30 before the season ends and has a 1 in 4 record in League 1. £3m is the quoted price and with Charlton's owners it'd end up more anyways for a player with no resale value, we only play 1 striker in a 4-3-3 and both Britt and Fletcher are better imo. Much rather use the money on a winger and go for a young prem striker on loan if we do offload Gestede i.e Troy Parrott, Sam Surridge was decent in league 2 he's only 20 from Bournemouth, there'll be loads we could get as a cheap 3rd choice

Haven't heard anything about Britt btw, I'm fairly confident both him and Fry will still be Boro players come 5pm Thursday.

Dijksteel announcement is probably being delayed until people finish work etc. Makes sense now I think about it.

Could be holding off on Lyle Taylor until Dijksteel is official although Charlton's owner doesn't give a *** about the fans so I doubt it would affect anything.

Football insider claiming we want to hijack the Lyle Taylor deal. I can almost guarantee this isn’t true as I can’t imagine we would want to deal with Charlton anymore than we already have ?

Lyle Taylor's agency is Boro based SMI International. 

Plenty of current and ex boro players on their books including Woodgate if I'm not mistaken. 

Maybe gives us some leverage.

Really excited by recent signings,of all the strikers linked would love to sign Michael Frey,think he could knit things together nicely....not sure it's a goer though.

    • 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.
