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.

I'm pretty sure that 'family' deal also applies to away fans (it has in the past). 2 adults and 2 U18 for £40.

Pretty good value.

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).

    • I looked on Windows website and it gave me an iso file to download, I just assumed it would work off a flash drive haha
    • 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¬†ūüĎć 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¬†ūüėÄ
