    Appearances totals of key players in 23-24, why we missed out.

    You could put another slant on those statistics :- Greenwood played 37 ( missed 6 ) Silvera played 40 ( missed 3 ) and to some extent Engel played 41 ( missed 2 )

    Greenwood and Silvera

    Statistics aside the difference between Jones v Greenwood and Silvera is that Jones has credit in the bank based on what he has done and what he can do over 3 seasons. He's been very average for nearly 12 months but he had proven he was a very good footballer and major asset. He was very good...

    Greenwood and Silvera

    id place him on par with Neil Warnocks experiment Toyosi Olusanya who came on in the 66th minute against Blackburn in Sept 2021 , ran 10 yards with the ball was tackled, fell over and was never seen again in the first team. I watched him several times in the under 23's thereafter and he was more...

    First, Current, All Time

    I once went to a quiz where a question was " What is the name of the only footballer to score in a FA Cup final that is a Palindrome (spells the same backward as forward". ) I answered " Bob " :p It was actually George Hannah for Newcastle in 1953. You never know in a few years it could be Jack .

    First, Current, All Time

    " Hannah" ? Is that the nickname fellow Boro teamates have given to the Aussie Superstar , Sammy Silvera ? Coined because he plays like a girl :p.

    Greenwood and Silvera

    When someone who works as a pundit on what is a very biased local radio station have the guts to say " They are not good enough " ( they have said it twice in the last 2 matches ) , we all really should listen and take note . Its something I never thought I would hear, for obvious reasons. As...

    Greenwood and Silvera

    Greenwood has the 3rd most goal contributions in the team after Lathe and Jones... and he's only 21. Greenwood has played 38 games, which is more than any other Boro player other than Engel and Howson who have played 40 games. Its a law of averages if he constantly plays in a forward position...

    Greenwood and Silvera

    Between the two of them they have played 75 games this season which I find staggering. Their goals aside they have offered nothing and in many instances they have been passengers. On some occasions id go so far as saying they have been liabilities. Silvera must have lost the ball 7 or 8 times...

    * The Unofficial "Official" Boro v Ipswich [04/24] Match-Day thread *

    3 mins into the second half and hes been knocked off the ball again and hit a pigeon on the 23rd tier of the away stand

    * The Unofficial "Official" Boro v Ipswich [04/24] Match-Day thread *

    On a par with Birmingham. Before we scrored I thought we were playing Brazil circa. 1970. " Brilliant Out of this world, the best, we are stunning, unbeliveable , as good as Pele, just like Messi, best weve played all season, that was a 100% penalty, superb, how good are we.... and on and on...

    * The Unofficial "Official" Boro v Ipswich [04/24] Match-Day thread *

    its close but I can honestly say that Silvera is worse than Greenwood. Both are liabilities and offer nothing. Silvera has either lost the ball or being outmuscled at least half a dozen times this half. He's as weak as pish !

    Sam Greenwood

    Dana Malt has just delivered a true verdict on Greenwood on the radio. Its about the first time since the days of Malcolm Allison have I heard such a truthful and damning opinion on any Middlesbrough player. She basically said he's just not good enough. Personally I think she was being too kind !

    New England kit

    I had to say shirt because there isnt a Middlesbrough flag. Ok lets say for 111 years the Transporter bridge as it actually appears and looks in the flesh was on all Boro shirts over that period. As far as im aware its always been painted light blue and its appearance as never changed. Its...

    New England kit

    My mate Trevor told me the other day that h'ed seen a full page advert in Sports Illustrated Magazine a few weeks back, paid for by the North Korean Football Association. It was a Competition open to anybody all to design The North Korean Football Shirt for the Next World Cup. The winning...

    New England kit

    I think the Boro home kit should be pink with a lemon band and puce piping. After all its just a shirt and the Red and White colours are synonomous with nothing and mean nothing to the area of Teesside. 148 years is way too long without a change . Theres about 90% of posters on here who should...

    O'Brien yesterday

    I agree with most of that . In effect those mentioned are around 35% of the regular team players and 60% of the first team squad. How the hell we are even 10th beats me ?

    Worse commentary ive ever heard in my life ( and i'm 65 now ) was Birmingham v Middlesbrough on Brum I-follow 2 weeks ago. It was that bad it nearly made my ears bleed. Even the Mrs. who never comments on such things said " who/what the hell is that " ! I'm sure anybody else who had to endure...
