Thank you oneboro aka Rob

Recommended Posts

Well here we are looking forward to the new season of 2019/2020 where upon we will all collectively follow the fortunes of the only football club that matters to us, Middlesbrough FC and we have been fortunate enough to have been able to do so for many a season now with their ups and their downs thanks to the fact that we have and are members of the oneBoro forum, a forum that has become a part of life to so many people over the years.

This forum has given me an outlet and a way to share my love of MFC and to chat to like minded people from all over the world.

It has allowed me to become friends with so many other forum members, to get together with them at so many games and grounds just to able to see the Boro but in a much better way than being alone (ok have my son).

Irrespective of the minor fall outs regularly seen personally I am just so glad that I have had the chance to participate on a forum which has always maintained it's values and respected everyone's opinions be they good or bad as much as possible.

The number of participating members increases all the time and over the years the forum has allowed thousands of folks to share with others their thoughts about MFC.

Technology and social media certainly has changed over my time on the forum allowing instant information and news, the ability to watch a match live, depending on streams, of so many Boro games but at onetime this forum was a vital part to so many, especially oversees to know what was going on during a game and the reason why our match day threads were so popular. I recall many folks stating that the match day threads and transfer window threads were the main reason for them joining in the first place and happily many are still active and contributing members.

There are other Boro forums that people can use but we have kept going we have had good and bad times but we are still here and growing in popularity it would seem from recent increases in membership. Certainly I would hope that we see the return of members who have stopped posting during the Pulis period and that they can feel the forum is a good place to visit.

But during all of that and always ensuring that the forum is possible is the fact that we have Mister oneBoro himself (Rob) who without fanfare and to be honest not much thanks or recognition silently gets on making sure the forum costs are covered and updating the forum resulting in what we have available to us all.

He never asks for financial assistance, though members can aid him should they wish, he sorts out forum issues as quickly as possible and well he has always been there for us.

So publicly I want to thank Rob for all he has done for us, your efforts and time are very much appreciated and I know that so many other members recognise that fact.

We have a like button now and the man who started this and has always maintained this forum deserves far more recognition and appreciation so please even if you see a post from him which is short and sweet and probably forum maintenance related give the man a "like"

Or simply just say thanks Rob on a reply, I know the forum means a lot to so many, tell the man why.

On behalf of everyone Rob both old and new past and present a massive thank you for everything you have done, this forum would not have been possible had it not been for your efforts.

I love this forum. It's a giant among pygmies. I don't know Rob, but thank you regardless - and also thanks to the mods for preventing this becoming a COB nuthouse or remaining stuck in the 1990s like FMTTM...

Thanks all for the messages! The forum is nothing without you all, so it’s great having you all on board and contributing like you do. 

A big thanks must also go to the forum team who keep things ticking over, they devote their own time voluntarily to ensure a great all round experience for everyone - so a massive thank you to them ? 

I want to continue to see the forum thrive in this season, so if anyone has feedback, suggestions and ideas for the website and forum please let me know (I’ll have a think about the dislike button ?).

During the summer I’ve given the main oneBoro site a bit of a refresh with a new look and more content - feel free to check it out too!

Once again, thanks! But thank you all more... keep posting ?

    • Don't be impressed then, just be happy with a 7-0 win like I said. In the past 18 months England have made it to the World Cup semi finals and the Nations League finals.  That's better than a lot of good teams including - Spain, Belgium, Argentina, Germany, Italy and plenty of others.  We lost to Croatia after extra time in a game we probably should have won by half time and Holland after extra time in a game that we could have won but obviously didn't.  To get to the Nations League finals we had to beat both Spain and Croatia and to get to the World Cup semi finals we had to beat both Colombia and Sweden, who are both decent sides.  I think we're a better team now than we were in the World Cup as well.  We lost to Belgium in the group stage and then again the third place play off but we changed the team for both of those games, rightly or wrongly.  So whilst we did lose the games, we also didn't give either of them our best shot. Against the mighty Kosovo we won 5-3, my memory is fine.  Winning and scoring 5 goals sounds pretty good to me.  The mighty Kosovo have lost twice this year - to us and 2-1 against Czech Republic.  They've also beaten the Czech Republic and drawn with Denmark so they aren't a terrible side by any means. France have won a few trophies over the past few decades.  They've also been a better team than us over the last few decades as have Spain so that seems fair enough to me. Our much lauded attacking line up has done fine unless we don't count putting 3 past Spain and beating Croatia?  During the world cup we weren't playing like this so it's really only post the world cup that we've had the opportunity to see it in action and so far it's done pretty well.  When it gets tested against better teams next year we'll see how it goes then of course. We've put 3 past Spain, 5 past Czech Republic, 6 and 4 past Bulgaria, 5 and 7 past Montenegro and 5 past Kosovo in the last year or so.  I'm not sure it's fair to call them all minnows and if you look around there aren't many teams doing that with the same regularity.  Montenegro the other night weren't a pub side, we are the only team who have stuffed them over the past 3 or 4 years and that includes games against Denmark, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey and Serbia.  We're a much better side than them but they aren't hopeless and have been competitive against decent sides other than us. I don't see the relevance between a video game on the easiest setting and England.  We're not playing San Marino, Andorra etc, the teams we are playing are better than that, and as I pointed out above, we've done ok even in competitive games against good opposition.
    • Cardiff appoint ex Miillwall boss Neil Harris as their new manager. 
    • Ayala was identified by Mowbray and the loan signing went through at the time of his sacking, he definitely wasn't a Venus signing. Karanka was in charge when we signed him permanently but he had nothing to do with us identifying Ayala initially. 
    • Sorry @Erimus74. Did not see your post. I dont think any are out of contract in jan but following 6 are out of contract come the summer.  Shotton, Ayala, Friend, Howson Johnson, Rudy. Suggestion is Clayton could be 7th one also out of contract but we might have an option to extend his. That option lies with us and not Clayton apparently.
    • Totally agree @wilsoncgp. I am also at a loss to explain reason why but i am also not too bothered why other clubs are not going for him because given his stats for last few season and fact he has 6 months left on his contract means the financial risk attached with him could not be lower. He already has 9 goals and 6 assists from midfield this season meaning he almost averaging a goal/assist every game. And as @DanFromDownSouth said. He is exactly the type of player our team currently lacks imo.
