at least Morrison has championship experience 

He's got experience of a few things, I'm not sure that alone makes him someone we want here.  He last played in the Championship a couple of years back where he made a few sub appearances and wasn't in the squad half the time.  Let me put this a different way, if you didn't know his name would you want to sign him?  And for that matter, when was the last time that people have watched him play who think it's an ok move?  I reckon people are remembering what he did 6/7 years ago when he had that breakthrough period with West Ham but he clearly isn't that player.

Zero expectations from me.

if he signs, he's judged on what he does and how he plays for us. his backstory is only an issue if it negatively effects his time here.

Plus it's the clubs risk to take, not mine

Still can’t grasp that we think it’s a good idea to sign Morrison. There literally isn’t a single positive aspect about it.

It’s an extra body in a desperately small squad, in a position we have no one. Small wages, short contract. Don’t get all the moaning.

Throughout his career his gone out of his way to show clubs that they shouldn’t touch him. He must have the best agent in the world. There’s got to be plenty of players around that we can could offer a short term squad role. An extra cheap body doesn’t really do it for me when it’s a player that couldn’t even cut it in the Swedish league.

Didnt hear of either before it became news on internet... morrison was 100% at Rockcliffe and is done I'm told. Moukoudi still got nothing concrete apart from what's in public domain

So Morrison, the French fella and gibbo? All tommorow 😁

Where do we actually stand on gibbo, one minute he’s off to Watford the next minute we scrape out some cash to pay some of his wages but Watford can still pay the whole thing so they’re favourites but he wants to come back to boro??? It’s all a bit confusing

From whats been said: Gibbo wants to come back here. Watford interested but Gibbo isn't. So whilst they might agree with Burnley the player doesn't want too... Fingers crossed

I'd guess the talk of Boro having literally no money is to try and keep prices down..

On Ravel Morrison.. I'd rather not have him for all the reasons mentioned.

I'd prefer to give Walker the chance from the bench since it looks like we can't get a decent loan for him.

We have money, we just can't spend all of it. That's what my understanding of it is. We have to stay within the FFP limits.

    • What do you mean by you installed the Win8 iso onto a flash drive? The iso is meant to be burned to a DVD-rom.  It should be an executable file for a flash drive.
    • In no particular order:   Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood!  
    • Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB.   I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now 
    • God, I couldn't even pick just three.  Lots to choose from over the years, including some of the great choices selected above 👍 Hendrie's two against Luton, bye bye Ayresome but hello Premier League and The Riverside.  Ravanelli at Wembley 96/97, it looked like we were going to do it finally but then we didn't.  Festa, a whole week later, at Old Trafford against Chesterfield, when it looked like we'd avoided an absolute catastrophe only for history to repeat itself.  Rav's last minute penna winner against Villa at the beginning of the week of destiny.  The whole first 5 mins of the Liverpool League Cup semi final in 97/98.  The first few minutes of the second half against Oxford in the same season.  Festa's last minute equaliser at Southampton when we were down to 9 men for a 3-3 draw in the 98/99 season and Brian Deane's goal to put us 3-0 up at Man Utd a few weeks later - I think that was the last game Man Utd lost that season before winning the treble - "We're gonna win the league", well maybe not.  Boksic twice up at St James park against the Geordies a couple of seasons later.  01/02 season against Man Utd in the cup, hardly any bugger there because there was some argument about the ticket pricing and the fact that it was a lunchtime kick off on the telly, two goals in the last 5 mins to win it, hurrah!  We had some good times against Man Utd back then for whatever reason.  Speaking of which, the following season at home against them on Boxing day, all three goals were decent but the Job one at the end to clinch it because of the second or two it took for Maccarone to head the ball across to him was nice.  Same sort of reason but earlier in that season, against the Mackems at home and Nemeths second goal (our third) when he kind of ran through on his own to score in front of the North Stand - I think it was just the sense of anticipation really. 03/04 season in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.  The first 6 or 7 mins as a whole but I was partly hysterical throughout the entire game really when I think about it.  It was ours to lose after that start and unfortunately we seemed to experts in finding ways to do just that up until that point.  Same season, scoring twice in injury time maybe to get a 3-3 draw at home against Leicester and another win at Old Trafford, Juninho scoring twice with his head! and Job getting the winner after Man Utd came back to level.  How did Man Utd win so much back then when we used to give them a going over on a regular basis?  Weird, football, isn't it?  04/05 season, not a goal but Schwarzer saving that penalty at Man City in injury time on the last day of the season to get us into Europe again has to be right up there.  The following season has to be the European goals already mentioned above, the games as a whole were mental but scoring late on to win not just once but twice is about as crazy as it gets.  Humping Man Utd (again) and Chelsea was also a lot of fun. After that point things got darker and those amazing moments never seemed to come around, at least not for me anyway.  There were always odd games or whatever but we were in decline and you could feel it.  We had some good games under Mowbray and obviously we were in the hunt a couple of times during seasons but we always fell away.  I think you're probably waiting until the 14/15 season for some more great moments - Leadbitter's freekick at Huddersfield was fantastic, Bamford's goal at Derby and the own goal at Norwich, the play off games against Brentford.  I stopped going away from home by this point though so most of those weren't experienced in the same way, the home play off game of course was though.  Following season, both games against Brighton had goals which got me going and against Derby over Xmas with the two goals in two minutes.  Nugent against Hull and Forshaw against Reading, mental. Probably loads I've missed out as well.  I think I just enjoy us scoring goals in any circumstances 😀
    • In order of age: 1. Ravenelli's in the FA cup quarterfinal that guarnteed we were into our first ever FA cup semi. 2. Zenden's penalty in the league cup final 3. Nugent's goal against Hull
