You can cut the wage bill by getting rid of players. 

What worries me is that the people we have already have struggled to play well. When the big earners go, who the hell is gonna step up to the plate to replace them? The only people we will have are the people who have tried and failed already. 

Again, its poor recruitment. It legit makes me angry how far we've fallen from the good times of Karanka. I miss feeling happy and proud to be a boro fan. 

Instead I have to put up with people at work asking questions like, "What's happened to Boro then?" Urgh.

Some of our players are on tens of thousands a week and swanning about in brand new cars. They do nothing to earn it. Meanwhile, most of the stadium staff are on minimum wage as it as and having their wages cut. It makes my blood boil.

I'm grateful to Gibson for keeping the club afloat over the years but I think it's time sell up (if we can find a decent buyer)

I've heard billionaires are queuing up around the block to buy a money-pit football club with poor support in a poverty stricken area.

Would go with a nickname change if they were interested instead of the Boro we could change to the Red Bulls.

Be buggered though if we  were sold to some other company  who is called something like  "Always"  and they wanted to change our nickname. 😟

Nawww that would never workout I can see the headlines in my head now.

Ash I think every Boro supporter deep down inside is grateful to the guy and if truth be known would certainly like the fella to stay at Boro and stay our Chairman and owner.

But I would have to say he would have to change his mindset to change a lot of fans minds now after the mess he as created .

No more allowing old pals to step into jobs at the club that needs football experienced men or women in those positions.

No more buying players without asking managers do they want them.

No more being a club that does not look to the future when putting a person in the managers position.

Literally start taking advice from people in the know and not people that do not know.

I can just see it now...the Middlesbro Red Bulls...

*shudders*

Thats worse than the Hull chairman who wanted to change their name to the Hull City Tigers.

Given the choice, I think I'd rather we were sponsored by Vaseline... 🤪

You aren’t allowed to rename teams, hence why hull never got renamed, it’s just an annoying thing people go on about every single time red bull is mentioned. And no They aren’t called ‘redbull Leipzig’

It would be RB Middlesbrough. Is that so much worse than Middlesbrough FC? Personally I couldn’t care. Leipzig fans seem fairly happy. Football is a business now.

Are people now pointing the finger at players spending the big wages they're on? How dare Ryan Shotton spend tons on a wedding and a new car.

Unbelievable. If Gibson starts pointing fingers at them for not falling in line with the new financial structure, some of you will lap it right up.

Also, if Gibson is cutting the wages of people who need it most to accommodate the wages of those who need it least then at least I can understand why he fell into bed with Simon Clarke.

That's exactly why I said IF we can find a decent buyer. There were Chinese investors interested a couple of years back but Gibson said no. Maybe he doesn't want to sell at all. We have wasted any money we did have on overpaid crap. I do understand why they're trying to cut the players wages but it shouldn't be the little people who are working part-time on minimum wage as it is.

I agree with you on this completely!

It's not the fact the players are spending the money, anyone would in their position. It's the fact they're being paid tens of thousands a week for doing nothing yet don't have to worry about not getting paid or sacked like anyone else would. I would love to sit on the bench and get paid £35,000 a week for it. And yes, the club staff are being made to start later and finish earlier to cut down on the already miniscule wages they get.

This was true headed by Peter Lim but Gibson refused out of hand so he went and bought Valencia who are now in the Champions League 😄

The trouble with wages is the club have handed bumper 30k+ contracts to players who are in the latter years of their career. We have a very aging squad with hardly any players in their prime years of 26. Either young inexperienced or old retiring

    • Ha I thought everyone myself included would be more excited on the back of a win.  I agree with everything you said. Same formation/team with Gestede in if Britt is injured.  I do have slightly more optimism however currently believing we could get 2-1 from this game if we can keep Grabben quiet. 
    • Wow - you're keen FB! But then I suppose wins do that to you.   1) Match Result? As Rioch's Braves said, Boro very rarely do well at Forest...even when we've been able to name a full strength team. They've been going pretty well so far this season, so I can't see beyond a home win...and a fairly comfortable one at that, given Boro's injury crisis. Prediction: Forest 3 - 0 Boro   2) With Britt seeing leaving on crutches after the Charlton game - Do we keep the same formation and if so, does Gestede or Walker start? Given the spirited performance the lads put in against Charlton, they deserve to start again - after all its not like we have many better options available.  That said, I would put Gestede in ahead of Walker, purely for his greater experience, despite his lack of match fitness...but I'd definitely have Walker on the bench. 3) Adomah back facing the Boro in a Forest shirt. Money aside, would you have him back in January? In a heartbeat! AA is one of the best signings we've made in the last 10 years. A fine servant for the club and I was very sorry to see him go. Sadly I fear he will be one of our tormentors-in-chief. If he doesn't score against us, you can guarantee he will at least set one up. 4) Best debut you have seen? I thought Djed (is that really spelt with a "D"?) Spence did himself proud. Seems to be the way that we don't produce wingers / wing backs very often, but when we do they tend to be a bit special.   Looking forward to reading the Forest forums nearer the time to see how many they think they'll win by...    
    • Played some good football yesterday and should have won by a few more some good chances missed, well worth the win. Early doors but Spence looks like quality skillful and fast into the tackle which  we haven't been seeing, and good going forward Coulson another good game and Howson has always had that bit of quality about him. Tav is just getting better game by game always looking to make something happen plays without fear. I thought we were well up for it chasing down,putting  strong challenges in we need to keep that level of intensity up.
    • No idea how Celtic are winning this cup final. Been all Rangers, and Morelos seems cursed against Celtic.
