    Wilder didn't promise marquee signings at all. He said he hoped to attract a couple of 'big names'. Craig Johns then reported this by using the phrase 'marquee players'. https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/wilder-middlesbrough-transfers-big-name-24296619

    Promised by who?

    Post one 80s hit that you can guarantee everyone has forgotten about.

    Either I've got an amazing memory or 'everyone has forgotten about' doesn't mean what I think it means. Anyway, I always preferred this to the more popular Fade to Gray.

    That is shocking - ref comments to wilder

    Not really. The referee calls a miss if there was an easier option than the one attempted by the player. If a player is snookered, the easier escape may result in leaving the opponent a simple pot. The more difficult escape may leave the cue ball safer. It is very rarely a bone of contention...

    That is shocking - ref comments to wilder

    A foul is a foul, regardless of the physical attributes of the player on the receiving end. If a player gets punched but hardly flinches, is it less of a foul than the same punch knocking a 'less strong' player over?

    Stonemasons at the Riverside

    The statue recognises a footballing legend's links to Middlesbrough. Albert Park is the best place for it as it recreates his regular walk to training. But he is a legend because of his managerial achievements. Without those he would be our equivalent of Wolves' Steve Bull. Loads of goals...

    Stonemasons at the Riverside

    Of course we can agree he was a fantastic goalscorer. But does that justify a statue? I don't think the Albert Park statue was commissioned purely because of his Boro goals. What about Fenton & Peacock? Both great Boro goalscorers, and in Fenton's case achieved in the top division.

    Stonemasons at the Riverside

    A mural depicting the 86 team would be lovely. I personally like the image of the players in the director's box after the 87 promotion winning game against Wigan. Rioch should have a stand named after him and a statue. Clough doesn't warrant one I don't think. Not for his Boro achievements...

    A bit embarrassing for Wilder this morning then

    Ideally yes, it should close before the season starts. But this season is not unique, other than the fixtures starting 1 week earlier. The window closed at the same time one year ago. Last season we had played 5 games before the window closed

    It's only a week longer than usual. Is that really such a big deal?
