Quietly fuelling Middlesbrough FC, through an historically difficult time.

Zilch, a big diddly-squat coming through the turnstyles, and backing once again for the manager of the football club.

as Boro fans we dont know we're born with that fellah.

Cut the crap, i'm tipping my hat to him this morning - his put his money on the table once again and given us all a lift. 🎩

Spot on, I saw someone (a former poster on this board who is now a Twitter celebrity, despite claiming social media was "for girls and teenagers") complaining because we used Tik Tok to unveil a player.
😀
Does this former poster have a history of single-handedly building airport terminals?

Only worry is many of the incomings are loans/short term contracts so we may have to start again from scratch next season. Hopefully not if all goes well and we will cross that bridge when we come to it. Should see some good football between now and then.

if we get more goals and wins - i'm sure they will want to be here for next season - regardless of the league we are in.

I posted yesterday on the Transfer deadline thread before we signed anybody that Gibson has provided excellent backing during Covid.
£4m plus to sign Akpom, Morsy and Fisher.
Plus commitments in contracts for Hall, Archer, Watmore and the loans of Bettinelli, Bolasie and Roberts.

To then bring in Mendez Laing and Kebano in addition is excellent backing for Warnock at a time when there is no revenue and Parachute Payments are a distant memory.
Its got nothing to do with using the Ayala/Friend/Clayton/Gestede/Shotton money; there was no money, just not having to spend it any more on them didn't mean it was there to spend on somebody else.

I still scratch my head at the decisions he made from promotion in 2016 through until he turned the corner and appointed Warnock, but there is nothing more can be done about that.
