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).

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year.¬†
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion.¬†
    • I don‚Äôt think it‚Äôs down to the working class nature of football, boxers don‚Äôt get the same flack, I think it‚Äôs because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a¬†few years ago who wouldn‚Äôt let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course,¬†she said! ¬†
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.¬† Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports¬†to give up¬†their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week.¬†
    • Yep, its a real sob story.¬† But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.¬† Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.¬† On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.¬† I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.¬†
