    Goals by players from other clubs you`ve really enjoyed......

    Best goal I’ve seen a player score against us was that Paul Scholes rocket so that is up there, a stand out goal. That Vincent Company goal a couple of years back for Man City was some strike as well, enjoyed that one. There have been a few over the years, agree with the Vardy one above - Roy...

    What's your highest break in snooker?

    If I get a break of more than 2 - that’s 2 consecutive balls - then I’m doing well and it’s because balls are near to the pockets. I can do pool better than snooker, I think there’s a lot of skill in snooker, the errors in addressing the ball are soon magnified by the size of the table.

    Mowbray - You're a WEASEL

    I agree, most of the posters on here are first class and a credit to the Boro fan base. This forum has kept me going during the lockdown, I don’t know a single person in real life (or not that I know of) but every day you can escape with a bit of chat about this and that and the vast majority...

    Mowbray - You're a WEASEL

    My problem is that I think some incidents/accidents transcend the sport, the game and the match. This was such an occurrence. Fry nearly lost an eye from a clear red card kick in the face. Mowbray could still have defended his player by just saying it was not intentional and he will learn from...

    Petition to have the Ref sacked

    Agree with all that. I don’t think there is a conspiracy against the Boro, I think all clubs suffer poor refereeing, I do think refs are vulnerable to being corrupted from other sources outside the game. I think it’s an unhealthy mix of multi millionaire footballers and managers being...

    Mowbray - You're a WEASEL

    Thanks E74, us more senior members of the forum have to try to maintain some decency in the debate!

    Mowbray - You're a WEASEL

    I respect your defence of him but why would I have a chip on my shoulder about Mowbray? I’m just a Boro fan of over 50 years, I’ve never met him, he is just an ex player and manager of the team I support. I think he did a great job as a player and a decent one as manager considering the limited...

    Mowbray - You're a WEASEL

    Yes and I respect their views, I haven’t called Mowbray any names but I’m deeply disappointed in his comments after this incident, I would go so far as to say he thought his boy did good. Like I said, it’s maybe that time has caught up with him.

    Mowbray - You're a WEASEL

    Mogga let himself down. He has a few die hard loyalists on here and I respect that but a lot of us will never again look upon him as the hero we did in our younger days. He was a centre half and he’s getting on a bit now, that’s the only excuse I can offer for him I’m afraid.

    Petition to have the Ref sacked

    Yes and that was completely wrong as well, there seems to be a deep rooted cultural problem.

    EU making a pigs breakfast of vaccination programme

    I agree, the NHS has done very well - yet again.

    Petition to have the Ref sacked

    I think the refs are making a shambles of VAR because it makes them too accountable and highlights their many errors. They are making it clunky with one purpose - to try to get rid of it.

    Petition to have the Ref sacked

    I agree with you unless there is corruption involved of course and I wouldn’t rule that out. The problem with refs accountability is that it is all behind closed doors, until it is more transparent then the frustrations will mount. I‘m a big football fan, I will watch any football, and I’m...

    Everything Tony Mowbray said on Jarrad Branthwaite as Blackburn Rovers boss defends loan ace Jarrad Branthwaite [Lancs live]

    To be fair to Mogga he should be a politician with that ability to spin the harsh truth that one of his players committed thuggery on the field of play.

    EU making a pigs breakfast of vaccination programme

    Tell us the UK vaccination programme is a great success when it has been fully rolled out and we can go back to normal living. Last news report I heard we are running out of it. I think it’s a wait and see from me. And what does it matter to us what the EU are doing?
