    They quoted £25m, we didnt have the money. We cant just keep spending money we dont have, the books have to be balanced somewhere

    Joe Lumley’s Reading top of the league

    Not the best agreed, h_m_boro pretty much nails it earlier in the post. His display for QPR at our place a couple of years ago was probably one of the most impressive goalkeeping displays Ive ever seen against us. Good luck to the lad

    Interest rates - medium to long term, guesses.

    I think youll be surprised. Its 1.75% now, I could see it soaring past 3%. The last few years has been the lowest its ever been. It wasnt that long ago (30 years) it was up about 15%, even higher in the late 1970's

    Womens football seems to be top heavy With local girls with zero footprint in the NE

    To be fair The Riverside has been one of the best supported grounds for the English womens football side. We got a crowd of just shy of 30,000 for the 2019 Brazil friendly

    RIP David Shearer

    Just read the sad news former Boro striker David Shearer has passed away aged just 63. Scorer of the first goal I ever saw live in a 1-0 victory over Liverpool in the 1979/80 season. Met him at a Former Players dinner in 2017 at The Riverside, where he was resplendent in full Scottish regalia...
