Sorry not been on here for a week or so, meant to post about Juninhos debut on the 4th.

What a remarkable day, it seemed like the worlds media were at the Riverside, that day, carnival atmosphere in & around the ground, the place was buzzing, will TLF live up top the expectations, can the Brazilian player of the year cope with the north east wind, the blizzards, the snow & whatever the north of england will throw up at our latest signing

Well if the Leeds game was anything to go by, his class pass to Fjortofts goal & his booking on a tackle on Brian Deane then we have a little gem on our hands & Osvaldo Giroldo Júnior, known as Juninho Paulista or Juninho, didnt let us down one bit & made us want more

Boro flashback 7th November 1987

Talking to Bernie Slaven today in the shopping centre & on this very day 1987 he was scoring one of the goals with Stuart Ripley scoring the other in a 2-0 win away to Sheffield United 

Boro kept the same team they have had for the previous 10 games & unbeaten since 3rd October, the team had settled in to a well organised, attacking team who had nothing to fear in this division

We still went another 7 games without tasting defeat 

What an era following the Boro back then

Boro flashback this day 8th November 1980 

Brighton 0 BORO 1

A goal from Craig Johnston, his 6th goal of the season, how good was this lad, was enough to give us our 2nd away win of the season, Craig Johnston went on to score 10 league goals that season, out of 27 league games, some going, with losing the previous league game at home to Birmingham 2-1 we needed a pick up from the Boro & we got one                                                                                                                                                               We had suffered some heavy defeats on our travels that season but won this game without conceding a goal, which so far we had only happened the once away, that time we won at Sunderland 1-0

Boro flashback this day 8th November 1986

Darlington 0 BORO 1 

Boro went in to this fixture unbeaten since the 21st of October & 2 league defeats this season after 15 games, losing 1-0 at Notts County & 3-1 Att home to Blackpool

Our previous meeting with Darlington were when we met in the FAC January 1985 with Darlington winning after a replay at Feethans

Times have changed since those llow times at the Boro & to go back to the last league meeting then its 20 years almost to December 66, also in the 3rd division, when over the festive period Boro won 3-0 away & 4-0 at home 

Now 20 years on a single goal from Archie Stephens was enough to take all points in this North East Derby & take all 3 points back down the A66 & continue our great form at the top of the league, this match attracted Darlington biggest crowd that season, 9,947 with the majority from the Boro

Darlington striker & ex Boro favourite Dave Currie was sent off

2nd season for John Neal, who was building a nice blend of youth & experience, his achelies heel was the away form, we scored & won games at home but constantly struggled away, a cracking time supporting the Boro though

    • Personally think not offering Ayala and Howson new deals would be a massive mistake. Ayala has been a rock in a poor defence and how many games has Howson performed below a 7/10, I can’t remember too many. I’ve heard both really enjoy being at the club so that could be a boost. 
    • Well the NHS has been a recurring bugbear of pretty much every government over the last 20-plus years. Its such a leviathan of an organisation, faced with ever-increasing demands and there is nearly always a crisis of some sort...access to GPs, ambulance response times, cost / availability of drugs, operation waiting times, bed shortages, staffing shortages, to name just a few. While I'm quite happy to pay a bit more in income tax, National Insurance or whatever, I just don't think the current system is sustainable in the long term (especially with the aforementioned growing & ageing population). You can't just keep throwing ever increasing amounts of money at it. It already accounts for around 20% of all government spending. The NHS was founded on a post-war model, when the population (hence demand) was far lower, wages and costs of providing services were comparatively lower. I genuinely think that at some point in the not-too-distant future, a massive overhaul will need to happen. Both to speed up & simplify the whole process from requiring treatment, to receiving it, as well as ensuring we have adequate staff & facilities. I'm thinking some additional taxation may have to be brought in. Or perhaps hospitals and surgeries can start being sponsored by drug companies and we'll have to get used to seeing GSK and Wellcome posters both outside and inside. Maybe they can start selling ad space on CT scanners, so that they end up looking like F1 cars?   Anyway, after all that waffling, I think what I wanted to say is that I'll settle for some minor improvements, rather than expecting any radical changes.
