Hello everyone and pleased to meet you.

I'm a Boro fan living in Italy. Been a fan of the club since 2005. So far, I've watched the Boro playing in person just once, on the 21st of August 2011 (at the Riverside for a league match against Birmingham City), but I'm planning to repeat the experience next month, this time in an away game. As I am in Bristol at the end of September, due to its proximity with Cardiff, I'd like to go to watch the game against the Bluebirds on Saturday the 21st. I'm just a bit worried about the tickets, so any advice from your side is very welcome!

P.S.: Hope to enjoy my time on this forum! ?

Welcome! Are you Italian? What made you see the Boro light?

Can't help much with the tickets - maybe try and email the Boro and see if they can sort anything out.

Yes, I am Italian. Born and raised.

How I became a fan of the Boro: in 2005 Italian TV started broadcasting matches of the Fooball League Championship, something that made me discover the beauty of English "local clubs", so I immediately wanted to follow one of them. However, I was fifteen years old at the time and I was also a bit of a "glory hunter", so I wanted to follow a local team that played both Premier League and European football. That's why I chose the Boro. Obviously, the amazing Uefa Cup  run of the 2005-06 season convinced me that I had made the right choice. I'd like to add that I don't have any favourite team here in Italy, so Boro is my only one.

    • To be awkward, because, well, I am awkward, I decided not to include the Premier League season.¬† Being honest about it, Negredo is easily the best forward from this decade in terms of quality.¬† Even players like Chambers, Fischer, Espinosa, would probably walk into many of the teams we fielded over the decade.¬† Given that many of those players did bugger all really, I don't want to pick them so it's Championship players only. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Randolph Fabio¬† Ayala Gibson Friend ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Clayton Leadbitter ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Robson Adomah¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Ramirez ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Bamford ¬† It was tougher than I thought really.¬† GK was easy enough for me as it was really between Randolph and Given and Randolph has been pretty much our best, most consistent¬†player since he signed for us.¬† Right back was a toughy.¬† I don't think any of them were especially good for any length of time.¬† I almost snuck Rhys Williams in there to get him into the side but he wasn't that good as a right back so I didn't.¬† Hoyte, McMahon, Varga, Fredericks, Kalas,¬†Nsue, Christie, Fabio, Shotton, Howson.¬† In the end I cheated slightly and selected Fabio as I think he was probably the better player out of that lot.¬† Nsue probably should have been chosen though as he played more games.¬† Central defenders speak for themselves.¬† Maybe could have looked at Williams here because when he was fit, healthy and on top of his game, he was a good player or Wheater before he left¬†but they are not in the same class as that partnership was for us.¬† Friend is obvious at left back, great value signing and played for a lot of the decade. In midfield, I was a big fan of Robson and would have liked to see him playing in better sides.¬† I think he'd have done ok for Karanka for example.¬† But you also have to respect the job that Leadbitter and Clayton did as well so I ended up selecting all three.¬† I didn't think that the likes of Arca, Butterfield, Whitehead, Bailey, McEachran or the more recent lot had done enough to get into the side. The attacking players were a bit tricky as well.¬† Adomah I would say is the easiest choice as he did well for us over 3 seasons.¬† Bamford is the best striker I've seen playing for us in the Championship so would have to select him ahead of Lita, McDonald, Emnes, Juke, Nugent, Assombalonga etc.¬† I didn't like selecting Ramirez as he only had a 6 month spell with us in the Championship and I think he's a *** but he did have a big impact in that time and he was a good player.¬† I suppose¬†Tomlin, Traore, and one or two others might have cause to grumble about not being selected but I feel Ramirez had a bigger impact than them. I reckon that team gets promoted fairly comfortably.
    • Well, I'd guess Assombalonga, Randolph, Fry, McNair, Tavernier would probably have higher values than say Ayala, Howson, Shotton, Clayton etc given contract lengths and ages.¬† So I'm assuming the first group is where the sales would come from if it's highest fees were looking for rather than the second group?
    • Why highly probably? Its certainly possible. But not highly probable. Were 9/4 to go down, so the bookies clearly arent convinced. there currently are 4 teams below us and a few within touching distance above us. People are in hysteria because weve been poor without even considering that there are likely to be 3 poorer teams than us in the division as the results have shown so far.
    • Boro cutting costs and strikers signed from Scotland.¬† I feel like I've seen this one before¬†ūü§Ē
