Predictably I follow the Chicago Bears, made the playoffs after barren few seasons. Reckon we will do the same again this year despite inexplicably trading away Jordan Howard.

I am a buffalo Bills fan. Fell in love with them over a decade ago somehow, they weren't even very good then.

Very excited for this season, especially with Josh Allen, the sexiest man in shorts.

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.

Dolphins fan since the Dan Marino days, expecting something close to 0-16 next season!

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!

Maybe it is just me, but the way they have treated Kaepernick has tainted the whole thing....some of our England team didn't sing the National Anthem....never got them kicked out of the League...

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
