    Ironopolis: Celebration of Middlesbrough's Architecture - Talk Today at 1pm

    This talk was really good and well attended. Dr Michael Johnson is not from Middlesbrough at all so that really adds kudos to him celebrating our buildings. Weirdly enough I was walking through St Hilda's after the talk and a lady was photographing some of the buildings with blue plaques in...

    Calls to make South End a city

    I have said many times I had a minor role in the failed City Bid of 2021 - and both Sunderland and Preston (the most recent cities at that time) came up with figures for the benefits - that is what I am alluding to. Middlesbrough Council will still have the documents - it was a lot of money.

    Calls to make South End a city

    It isn't just symbolic. Anything based in the new city, be it college, office, shop etc gets City Status by its name. It can mean extra staff. It can mean higher ranked/paid staff. This brought massive extra funding for Sunderland and Preston. It seems all wrong and ridiculous to say it but both...

    Calls to make South End a city

    I hosted a talk before lockdown by Middlesbrough historian Geoff Braddy and he refutes this explanation of middle point between Whitby and Durham and seems to be able to back it up. It just is not the route you would have taken between the two, if anyone had actually wanted to travel between the...

    Calls to make South End a city

    Chelmsford to Southend is 20 miles - it would be a nice tribute of course that is true but surely you cannot crown two Essex towns as city in a row over the rest of the country. Tees Valley/Teesside is the biggest conurbation in the country without a city. Chelmsford was supposed to be a city...

    Howson

    A couple of years ago away at Barnsley, some Boro drinkers were ascending the steps up to the back of the stand at half time. One was loudly moaning about Jonny Howson. A terrible midfielder. Another pointed out he is playing at right back and playing well there. The other replied that doesn't...

    The ignore button is there so that people can admin the board for themselves. I excluded the two people that were particularly insensitive and infuriated a lot of people. Remember you can opt to not read or post any thread. Using Ignore you can block a poster from disturbing your day.

    Versus Peterborough - Posh Boro After the international break can we bounce back with games against struggling Posh Boro and Barnsley - we'll have to do it without a defence it seems.
