He might have won a trophy and gave us European adventures, but dud you see his hair and his teeth????Should be a Steve Mclaren statue at The Riverside, only manager who has ever won owt for us, but constantly derided for 'boring football' and because he was let down by the 'Golden Generation for England' (also did some sterling work at Sid James Park)!
If he hadn't done so well in management it wouldn't even be a discussion.
Don’t forget the statue for gentleman George was built when he was still very much with us.
Of course we can agree he was a fantastic goalscorer. But does that justify a statue? I don't think the Albert Park statue was commissioned purely because of his Boro goals.Reading this thread I wonder if it's the other way around. If he didn't have the great management record and the higher profile would it be easier for everyone to just agree what a glorious goalscorer for the club...?
An apology would be a good start, but obviously you think it is ok to call someone a t wat and have no repercussions.So your default is to roll about on the floor outside a pub?
Just supporting my first comment.
What exactly are you looking for here Norman?
I’m not sorry for what I posted at all.
The statue recognises a footballing legend's links to Middlesbrough. Albert Park is the best place for it as it recreates his regular walk to training.I'm pretty sure it was, because his record was so unbelievably brilliant.
Here he isThere you go. And what's the harm in that? I think he'll have been 80(?) or thereabouts when it was unveiled. So hardly unlikely to ruin his reputation with boro fans by suddenly putting in duff performances...
If we were going to say no statues while someone is still active in the game I'd agree. So maybe a no to McClaren and Southgate. What if Southgate goes and manages the geordies next and wins them the champions league or something?
But Norman you have let it get to you.An apology would be a good start, but obviously you think it is ok to call someone a t wat and have no repercussions.
But you know what, I am not going to let a daft get like you get to me. I am 5 weeks into an 8 week holiday in France, I have been out on my boat fishing all afternoon and now I’m finishing the day with a Pastis.
You get all hot and bothered under the collar regarding Cloughy whilst I chill out in the evening sun.
I just can’t believe admin let you get away with this.
Have a nice day.
I suppose it shows the lack of upbringing that you can’t apologise when in the wrong. Oh well.But Norman you have let it get to you.
I've wished you well on your previous similar trips and I'm happy for you that you have had a lovely day. Enjoy your drink and the sunset.
I've thoroughly enjoyed mine.
