    Phil Foden

    No there were performances from a team helped along by very favourable group draws with poor opposition in the early stages. Whilst England beat the minnows and qualify, far better teams are losing in other groups and going home . Middlesbrough made the semi-final of the league cup due to the...

    Takeaway Prices

    If Curry is your thing get yourself to Asda and buy their Bom Bahia curries . There are about 6 different varities to choose from. In about 40 years of trawling around supermarkets for a curry as good as an Indian restaurant or take-away this range is the best by a country mile ! Each is 400g...

    Untaxed Vehicles Seized

    There seems to be a fair few assumptions on here that anyone who has an untaxed vehicle " on a road " deserves to have their vehicle seized. Well lets define " Road " ! Actually it should be " public highway " deemed to be owned by the Hiighways Agency for legal seizures to take place. A few...

    Boro - Currently 12-1 Joint 2nd Favourites To Win Championship Title

    I dont think you can blame the bookies because the odds will have been based on what we did the season before and the likelyhood we would sign more forwards for the start of the season. The fault lies with the Boro recruitment being slow ( as usual ) and bringing in two gambles Rogers and Latte...

    Boro - Currently 12-1 Joint 2nd Favourites To Win Championship Title

    Not taking into consideration Luton , Bolton , Oxford, Leeds, Soton, Norwich and W.Brom. you can currently get 12-1 on Boro winning next seasons Championship. Burnley are faves at 7-1 and Sheffield Utd are 12-1 whom I think will be lucky to finish in the top 6 ! Sunderland are 20-1 and the...

    Who do you get told you look like?

    Ive never been likened to Brad Pitt but apparently I have an uncanny resemblance to his older brother Cecil or Cess to his friends.;)

    * The unofficial "Hurrah for The Red Shirts". Boro v Cardiff City [04/24] Match Day thread *

    Now the Cardiff Commentators have said " Cardiff had more of the ball in first half " . Actually they had 48% !

    * The unofficial "Hurrah for The Red Shirts". Boro v Cardiff City [04/24] Match Day thread *

    From the overly biased Cardiff commentary " Cardiff were in complete control in that half " ! Not according to the statistics they wernt !

    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...
