Its mad how everything seems rosier when your club is riding a good wave.  I've just said hello to the wife for the first time in months 

Well played fellas. Draw a fair result.  No complaints. See you at our place. Any one need any advice give me a shout. 

Today was class but I'm proud to be from Boro regardless, I love the place and honestly it makes me happy to turn up to the Riverside every match day. I work down the road from the stadium and the Tra

Do you ever write about football, or only about things that baffles you in other human beings views and opinions? 🙄

It's what Will does these days. I remember when he used to have good opinions about football and would actively contribute to discussions. It's like him and CT have switched bodies.

Worth noting is that unlike other 'north' London clubs we announce attendance as bums on seats not tickets sold. 

I think our attendance is calculated by asking Mark Page to pull a number out of a tombola. The stadium looked pretty chocca on Sunday, yet the attendance was announced as roughly 8,000 below capacity.

I did like it when Mark Page did the tombola yesterday and he got the lad up from a suicide prevention charity and gave him a very dull reception then turned round and basically jizzed over Duzza. He kept it up during the draw too.

To be honest I've seen Boro yo-yo between the top and 2nd tier so many times that the shine has worn off a bit.

Play-offs? Meh.

Getting promoted under Karanka was great, but the excitement wore off pretty quickly when it became obvious we were on a hiding to nothing and going straight back down.

My Best moment was away at Wolves 92 season,winning promotion to the Prem,when that whistle went and we'd won 2-1 after going down to 10 men and going 1 down and hugging & Kissing a perfect stranger(Female, I hasten to add) Never seen her before or since)but we shared a moment that will stay with me forever,before I had to run for the train back to Plymouth...Oh those days

So instead you are more excited about 16th in the Championship and a draw against a decent Premier League side? I'm genuinely baffled.

I never said I was excited.

I just said I haven't felt this good about the team for a long time.

For most of the past 10 years or so, we've been aiming at promotion (and mostly failing). We've had a revolving cast of managers and players come and go. Gibson has alternately splashed the cash or tightened the purse strings.

Over the last couple of years or so, the chickens have really come home to roost, as far as the club's finances are concerned and we've finally got a real indication of just how bad the situation is. Coupled with the way we started the season, it looked for a while as though we would be dropping into League 1 and possibly even doing a Bury.

Since December, however, we've seen a real change sweep through the club...certainly in terms of attitude, commitment, performances...and most crucially results. Which is even more impressive when you consider the limited spending and chronic injury problems with the squad.

So, weird as it may sound, recovering like that, after a pretty disastrous start, has given me a really good feeling. If the manager and players can work together under really tough circumstances, it bodes well for the future (assuming things have got as bad as they're going to get).

    • A retired Shay Given gives us 15 more points than a season with Lumley
    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
