Exactly right. They haven't even filled the West Stand up so there's no point opening the entire stadium and pay more staff to work. They have certainly had the South Stand open for cup games last season but only one bar and it was always dead.

Plus it looks better since they moved the TV gantry to the East stand as it'll look like close to a full house ?

I figure this isn't on riverside live is it? Cup games don't get streamed?

You're right. There are no cup games on the website. Is it streamed on any of the betting sites? Seem to remeber that some of the sites streamed all the early rounds.

Anyone seen on twitter the club have mucked Red Faction about with tickets?

Aye, it's a disgrace. Club are discriminating against them as they're allowing other people who aren't South Stand STH to sit in the block they were going to be based in. Atmosphere will be dead now and it will probs cause friction between them and the club.

Very strange, think he's come around a little more in the last few tweets.

Safety is paramount, of course. The club would be much more liable to abuse if they allowed things to go on and something bad happened. If they fear something will happen, then fair enough, they need to take action. I know the stewards and police will have their say on this.

But communication is dreadful though, if nothing else. They spend ages developing this relationship with these fans who do their utmost to create an amazing atmosphere at the stadium, put together displays and all sorts... and then being throw them under a bus at a moment's notice. It baffles the mind. Imagine the stadium without the Red Faction... Christ.

Dijksteel   Wood   Friend   Bola

 

     Malley   Howson   Saville

 

Tavernier    Fletcher     Browne

 

I’d like to see Howson/McNair tried in the holding-midfield role, Howson especially is much better on the ball than Clayts and his defending has improved massively in my opinion. 

Fletch fully deserves a chance to be our first choice striker, his finishing and movement has looked very good (should be on 3 goals right now) Britt has worked hard but been on the edge of games. 

I think Marcus Browne has to be our set LW this season. We can’t play Fletch in that position as he offers no defensive help to the LB whatsoever and leaves us exposed. Browne has a lot of potential and for me has to start at Blackburn too.

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
