Boro v Luton Town (A) 3-3 (Fletcher, Assombalonga, Wing)

Recommended Posts

Fancy us tomorrow. Think it'll be 2-0/3-1 sorta scoreline. Mentioned the lineup I expect earlier in the thread and I'll stick to that.

 

Fullbacks are a big loss to Luton I think

Settle down children and I'll begin...

 

Twas the night before Luton, when all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, not even a Mejias.

A blank kit was packed by the kit man with care,

In the hopes that Anfernee Dijksteel would soon be there.

The players were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of promotion danced in their heads.

And Woody in his suit, instead of Pulis in his cap,

Had given us hope that we wouldn't play crap.

But out on the pitch surrounded by noise,

Woody sprang from the dugout to encourage the boys.

Away to the Hatters was a tricky beginning,

If we wanna go up, this is one we should be winning.

Now Howson!  Now Wing!  Now Britt and McNair,

On Brown, On Bola, not you Rudy, you just sit there.

The fans sprang to their feet, as the ref blew his whistle,

Wing had just scored with a shot like a missile.

Wouldn't that be such a wonderful sight,

Happy new season to all, and to all a good-night.

It's game day, I'm in the states on the west coast for work, cannot wait! Unfortunately it's unlikely I'll be able to watch as it's around midday when the game kicks off but I'll be following on the gazette updates and here.

Please follow Red Rocket on the oneBoro Twitter takeover covering the whole day from travelling down from Boro, build up and meet up with fellow oneBoro members and of course the game it 'self.

It may go quiet after the game but we will wait and see.

So happy that I get to go and will publicly thank Familyboro for his assistance.

Feels like its been a long break from football this summer... Boro kicking the whole thing off on a Friday night too - what a start to the weekend!

 

Very jealous of those with tickets - enjoy!

C'mon Boro be fantastic to put on a good show in front of the Sky cameras and to get Woody off to a flying start.

    • 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.
