What is the Boro identity?

Recommended Posts

The boro breakdown podcast made a great reference to this. The player a boro fan wants to see is one who will just try and keep going. Put in some big tackles and wear their heart on their sleeve. 

Leadbitter - born a mackem and should be hated. Yet he is loved because he gave his all, bollocked people when needed and gave his all more often than not. 

Tuncay - loved because of his work rate. 

So that's the identity I think the fans want. And I think it's fair to ask for that personally. 

Why is Britt hated? Because hes lazy and rarely gives his all. Gestede? Same issue really. 

They also went on to say how our current boro team is one that is lacking a reliability to the fans and the disconnect grows. 

Who ever is in charge of the summer rebuild, that's what they want to bring in.

Don't worry MBP, Richie Smallwood will be back in the summer to captain us to the League One Play-Off Final.

Sadly it is the whoever is in charge that needs a rebuild!

two recent posts by BWS AND MBP have just about hit the nail on the head as to where were lacking and failing. id put it as a mix of both posts reasoning. what were needing is a player or two to put themselves about in midfield a,la hamilton, glover and prior to that souness they will get a good section of the crowd back onside through sheer endevour and commitment.addd to this we are and have been for yonks, desperately missing a maverick type attack minded midfielder that can give us around 15 assists a season and get the crowd on thier feet. adama was a low level version ,very much a project but tomlin was the last player that fit the role. we need to show bravery in our play in as much as that one or two players need to stop playing the easy pass and start attempting the more adventourous toch.

This is what kind of annoys me about our fans, we’ve had some really good players never really click with our fans because they don’t ‘put it about’ and some truly overrated ones because they do get stuck in. If we built a team of leadbitter types we wouldn’t get very far I’m afraid.

    • It could be a number of things to be honest, have you tried connecting it to an external monitor or a TV first and then booting it up? If it works fine on an external source then you have a screen issue.  If it doesn't work on an external source then it's probably a corrupt system file causing it. The easiest way to fix that would be to wipe the hard drive and reinstall your operating system (you should have a CD-ROM or USB stick that came with the laptop in order to do this. Connect your laptop to a TV or monitor first though so you can see what you're doing!) If that still doesn't work and you can't get a display on the laptop AND an external source, the graphics card could be shot, or the motherboard could be faulty, there could be a CMOS issue, etc etc.
    • Hi all, just after a bit of help. I'm trying to reset my laptop. It is a fair few years old now and has been through the ringer, a fair few times it has hit the wall and I have managed to fix it by myself, but this one seems beyond my capabilities.  This issue has been going on a while but I'm only just getting round to it since I finally have some free time. When I turn my laptop on, It makes the noise as if it is loading, but I just get a black screen (it is still backlit but nothing ever appears). I have tried the Novo one button reset, which actually brought up a screen for the first time in lord knows how long.  However, no matter what option I choose, it then goes back to a black screen.    Anybody with any ideas at all on how to fix it or what's wrong? I was using it as a media server for Plex before it left so there were a lot of files on there that may have corrupted if that helps diagnose it at all?   Thanks in advance
    • Gazette seem to be suggesting club and JW want him to stay given his influence around the place. I should have added the above post was not my own prediction of who will stay or go but more what Gazette are seemingly suggesting. 
    • The police struggle with their duties during a short spike in crime on a regular day. That, along with the government's long desire to portray the changing face of crime and how we increasingly need to change to fight more digital crime, is going to be a factor in how many coppers we have on the streets to enforce these things. The government has now been forced to accept that enforcement may be needed to keep people indoors, which goes drastically against their ideal distribution of officers. Going significantly against their ideal setup is becoming quite a theme during this pandemic. As I said earlier, this doesn't mean higher levels of lockdown are on the way, what it may mean is that higher levels of enforcement will be dispatched in order to enforce the current lockdown procedures.
    • Why would we want Friend to stay, He was a brilliant player, now he cannot play three games on the spin.
