This just highlights how bad Spence positional play really is 🤷‍♂️

Of Antonio Brown? God damn man, where to start. Here are a number of things that he's done, mostly this off season but a couple date back to prior years. 1. Wants out of Pittsburgh - makes i

I’m a Panthers man myself as have some family there. Was fairly into it 2013-2017 but my interest has waned last couple years. Might start watching it more this year. My brother is really into it. He probably knows more about the Bucaneers (his team)/NFL than the boro/championship so I’m always kinda up to date with what’s going on through him.

Your brother sounds like a reasonable man ? 

Must be fun for you two to watch the division Derbys ?

Big Steelers fan due to my parents living in Pittsburgh and me being born there. Going to be a weird year this year as we transition away from Le’veon Bell and Antonio Brown.

At least you ditched the Antonio brown circus. Think that was a great move.

It’s a great move in terms of attitudes and egos but he’s also the best WR in the NFL for the last 4 or 5 seasons. Smith Schuster looks great but was he profiting from teams doubling AB or is he legitimately that good? We’ll see this year.

I dont know a great amount about NFL i think recently I have began to grasp the rules which makes it easier to follow. The team I go for are the Packers although that is predominantly down to liking the colour green. I was hoping Wade would make the cut after a promising moments in the pre season though.

I'm more into the NHL though and watch a fair bit of that as you get free streams on betting sites. Plus I enjoy watching Billingham Stars which is a nice introduction to ice hockey for anyone fancying giving it a watch. My team there are the Philadelphia Flyers.

Yes granted, but I suppose the argument is that ability worth all the drama in the dressing room? I'd argue probably not. I'll take the slightly less talented WR who has his head screwed on properly over AB every day.

He made the practice squad, so he basically now sits for a year and learns the ropes and goes again next year. If he can get even 1 season as an NFL running back that would be a huge success for him, especially at 28 already, typically RBs don't have a massive shelf life.

As for the NHL, don't worry, I follow that too ? and my local team are the Guildford Flames. My NHL team are the Vancouver Canucks.

Green Bay Packers, I work for a US corporation who's Head quarter's are near Green Bay, got a guided tour a few years back, 50 year waiting list for a season ticket, they get passed down within families so never become generally available.

Imagine that at Boro!

    • Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.
    • Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers. Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.
    • It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are.  If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him. Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.
    • I think you are reading and interpreting what you want to get angry about rather than what i actually said. I expect every manager to have his approval on all signings even Warnock, even though he wont be here in a years time. Peltier was signed as cover for Fisher who we knew was out for a long while, we absolutely needed him. He clearly can plug a gap, not ideal, but he did ok at LB. we absolutely needed another CB. McNair is useless in a back 4 but ok in a back 3. Like I say, I expect every manager to plan for their team and have their approval over the choice of an owner. As for Scott, we have no way of knowing how successful he will be, what his Job description is or how much autonomy he will have, you are peeing in the wind if you hazard an answer. Gibson has always been hands on,, i don’t see that changing sadly. Since 2006 the owners vision has been wrong more than right, as have his appointments. Don’t take that to mean I am ungrateful for his efforts, without him, we’d not have a club, but goodness me he is due a right decision. I know he is trying his utmost but is having to do so with an imbalanced squad. He does not sign players, that isn’t his job it is Gibson and Bausor that do a deal or walk away. They have tried hard to fix the final third with more pace, flair and finishing, unfortunately the defence has been holed as a result.    I am not suggesting Spence and Coulson were great players, but they are better than nothing. Are you suggesting Warnock prefers Jones as a LB to Coulson? He doesn’t, he is having to make do and mend.  We have no holding midfielder. Howson is doing a job but it is not his best position. He is not refusing to sign foreign left backs at all, you are spinning his comments. He said they haven’t found anyone that fits the bill after being unable to fund UK based LB’s. Why you interpret it as a refusal is odd when he had no say over Morsy and some other signings is beyond silly. Getting a player to agree to come knowing they are going to be mere cover, from abroad especially, in a pandemic too, when you have no money, will not be a doddle, it isn’t like a pic and mix at the cinema.    Get off his back and support his efforts for now, he is not trying to set us up to fail, he has the best record of any manager in the league, but that was with his mix of players, blame the players for their part in the poor performances too and the goals we concede. Warnock deserves some criticism but it needs to be for his failures, not those of others. You can rejoice his departure come May which isn’t long for you to wait. 
    • Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around. Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously. Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.
