His salary won't be a consideration - he's on about 4k a week or something according to figures published on here the other day - dirt cheap for a player of his quality.
Disastrous move for me and, as others have said, the fact it's to a direct rival makes it even worse.
The Boro keeper of my youth, from when I first started watching Boro. He always did that thing of catching it, then dropping it then catching it again. Almost like a basketball thing. Or did I imagine that. So long ago!
He has a certain effectiveness but I'm glad he's no longer our manager. His Boris-love stuck in the craw for me, but was exactly what you would have expected. No doubt if we beat them he'll have a whinge ready and if we go up he'll claim some retrospective credit.
I just saw this post on facebook. The reason I post it here is because not only do I remember Brain Laws being a top player for the Boro I used to sometimes get free passes into the 100 Club at Ayresome and free away tickets; my mate's dad got pally with him because he ran Blue Bell Garage -...
He's a kid from Tooting who got a pro contract and probably couldn't believe it, but teams wouldn't be doubling up on him if he hadn't shown something. I agree that repetitions - of crossing, of first touch exercises - are what's needed. Traore blossomed from embarrassing to unplayable. Jones...
I liked him too.
I did too. Getting them up and keeping them up in the first season was an achievement. They had some good moments and no way did they stink the place out like we did when we went up under Karanka (for one gloomy season).
I've only read the first page - I might well read the rest - but already there seem to be three types of poster/voter:
1/ "Labour aren't this, aren't that; they haven't done enough to convince me."
Basically, you're a Tory, you vote Tory; however, you know you're on a left-wing board and you...
I think Hackney benefits from having Howson's experience alongside him - with another young player he might not look so composed. We definitely need to replace Howson long term but it should be a proven schemer who, like Howson, can provide the stability for Hackney to continue to flourish
"We've got this player, he hardly ever scores or assists, but he does these really showy backwards diagonal runs, over and over, and either gets fouled or lays it off 5 yards (backwards).
We want 100 million for him"
He benefits when Dijksteel is in the team creating overloads. He doesn't work so well with Smith. Also, he had a good understanding with Crooks.
It's good he's no longer a wing-back, having to tear back to his own box the whole time, but could benefit from different personnel in his area of...
It's appalling that anyone should highlight why the UK Prime Minister asked a homeless man in a Christmas food shelter if he was in business.
What's Christmas for if not to have stuff like that banned?
Up until I knew a family bereaved by (cold-blooded, brutal and senseless) murder, I took the classic comfortable liberal position on this issue. Since then I have asked similar questions to the OP: Why is the murderer alive when the sweet brilliant father he bludgeoned to death, who helped so...
