I dont live in the area so granted I dont get to go to many. But under Pulis I'd not have gone anyway. Plus I play football on Saturdays.

I've played sport and football and I get your point completely about booing and why it's a negative. My point is that at the top level, booing is part of that game. I dont want people to boo players ALL the time, but if they've performed below standard, that's when I'd think a boo is warranted. 

We both know I'm not going to list every game where the gome team has booed at half time, but it happens, like I said, it's part of the game. Rightly or wrongly is obviously open to debate. 

Your point about booing when they've tried their best is missing my point. I said that, for me personally, i would never boo a player who is giving it their all. But i would boo a player who isn't putting effort in and is playing badly. I think you have misunderstood why people potentially boo in the first place.

But we shall agree to disagree.

I think I've explained why I detest booing and I haven't missed any pints I just disagree with them.

I remember a game last season, we were playing well and should have been a couple of goals up, then after about half an hour we conceded against the run of play and the crowd started booing straight away.

I thought that was very poor tbh and couldn’t see what good they thought it would do, people were just waiting for an excuse to boo just because of pulis.

Also the Brentford game, People got on Dijksteels back almost immediately just because he didn’t/couldn’t pass it forward, what a welcome that was for him.

Tbf although I’ve never took part, if we’ve had a shocker as we did on Tuesday I don’t mind booing if it comes at the half/full time whistle. During play though I agree it’s awful and totally counter productive.

This specific instance though wouldn't have been directed at Dijksteel personally though, more at the frustrations of going backwards when chasing a goal on 85+ minutes. Just fans venting frustrations, think that's always going to happen, especially in situations like that.

    • This day 15th November 1994 - Boro's young guns go down to Ancona in this Anglo-Italian compatition Boro took the lead after 10 minutes then struggled to impose themselves on the game, the youth in the team v experience they were facing proved too much in the end, with Ancona levelling on the hour mark & scoring 2 late goals in the 80th & 90th to put the game beyond Boro 
    • Thing is, we almost certainly will offer him less money. And I don't think based on what he's said that he'd outright deny just less than what he's on. But tackling the wage bill would appear to need more movement than that and actually, a significantly less wage. I wouldn't expect him to stay on those terms. I'd say if the club really cares about wanting to keep him around, they need to approach it carefully, even if they are going to low-ball him to begin with, don't be a *** about it and expect him to say yes to anything because of a commitment to the club. Have a high boundary that you can't go beyond, work up to it and if his representatives think he should say no to our highest offer then we leave it at that and on good terms. No taking the ***, no expecting him to be accepting a pittance for his services on the back of the club as a whole's mistakes, something much bigger than Ayala's responsibility at this club. Most importantly for me, we have to accept the likelihood he leaves and hopefully wish him all the best if he does. I think he's been a great servant for us and I hope, unlike Derby, we treat him as professionally as he's treated being a player for this club.
