How many Boro players would you recognise in the street

I'd recognise Watmore as I've met him before.

Beyond that - McNair, Tav and Fry maybe?

This is the problem with rebuilding the team every season, you don't get much of a connection with players.

I was thinking about this earlier in the week looking at the pics from the friendlies, came to the conclusion it was probably zero.

Maybe (ex-player) Bettinelli .... just to be sure I'd throw a ball in his direction.

It's definitely him if he drops it or palms it into the traffic.

I was saying this the other day I have taken my eye off the ball as who we have signed.

I honestly missed the Amoebi signing, no idea of the fee or what.

I think if you see somebody above 6’ 4” near the Riverside or Rockliffe he is probably a first team player.

Watmore and Tavernier. McNair would be the one you recognise as someone but don't realise who it is until you've walked past him. I did that with Mark Schwarzer in Harrogate once.

None to be honest. In 80s id regularly see pally and bernie in town, or gilly, even fleming later on in 90s in acklam in particular. Been sat on tranit buses with curtis and gary gill.hopping on and off near where i lived. Unless youre at a community visit from a player you dont really meet them outside of the training ground these days.

Most live Eaglescliffe, Yarm, Hurworth or Croft way don't they.

I cant even recognise them when they're playing, the turnover in recent years and especially when I forget my glasses.
