Life during the International Break

Recommended Posts

We all hate disruption to a degree in our normal routine and let's be honest the IB does just that because there is no Boro for two weeks especially when it is the football season.

So what do you do during this period of either forcing yourself to follow league 1 and 2 games and results, or forcing yourself to watch whatever International game is on the box as a replacement?

Some may take advantage of additional free time so do any of you have a task, trip or time to do something you have put back on doing?

We often see the comments about the IB giving the team the opportunity to do more training on aspects and time for injured players to return and get up to speed and well though we might be used to it does not mean we have to like it.

So are you looking forward to the International Break?

I get in to the international fixtures, I follow all the British teams' results and watch the ones I can.

That and the 4th test of the Ashes.

I’m going on a 4 week international break. As I’m of to Turkmenistan 🇹🇲 on Sunday for a month. They are ranked alongside North Korea in terms of human rights and the whole of their internet is either blocked or heavily monitored fun times 😳

I’m in the military, currently posted over in the Czech Republic 🇨🇿 as part of a tri service (Army, Royal Marines & RAF) British Military Advisory Training Team (BMATT)   Our role is to travel to countries around Eastern  Europe and Western Asia training their own forces in British tactics and leadership qualities. 

21yrs in the forces and this is by far the best job I’ve had 

(You can google BMATT and have a look at the .gov webpage)

    • The Boro are unbeaten in the last 4 games & on the back of a 1-0 win at home to Reading travel to South Wales to take on recently relegated Cardiff City who sit below the Boro in the championship table on goal difference, there record is the same as the Boro’s so far, played 7, won 2, drew 3, lost 2 One of the bookies favourites to return to the PL Cardiff have found it anything but easy, they’ve had a busy summer in the transfer market bringing in up to 10 players, including our very own Aden Flint a big money transfer Cardiff are without a win in the last 3 games after starting the season with 2 wins & a draw from their opening 3 home fixtures, this will be another testing time for team  But its about the Boro, how Jonathan Woodgate sets us up, formation we play too, Luton & Bristol City away we played fast attacking football though & IMHO, a win was what we deserved, a draw is what we got in both games Will Woodgate to stick with the team that started against Reading?  Will Woodgate keep with Shotton, or bring in Ayala to partner Dael Fry?
