    I bet Tom is great fun talking football over a pint !!
  4. No, but 1st game in 23 !! Why be negative before a ball is kicked, Nutall did ok in a tough game. It was not a good game but more down to Millwall at home with 4 x wins on the bounce than Rovers. 3 Points is all that matters, but some posters always find something when we win or plenty when we lose !! IMO Realism is in short supply

    There is a lot of bullshit on here, lots of dreamers !!! Realism is in short supply, people have short memories. I understand that it's about opinions but we are work in progress and yes we have got weaknesses ( late goals etc) If we win the other side are crap and we lose we should have won, no credit where due ? The hospitals are busy enough without going on suicide watch COYB
  6. Hi All Tough game away at Middlesborough tomorrow at the Riverside, they are as expected up near the top but did lose 3-0 to Villa in their last home game. I unfortunately cannot make the game tomorrow as I have a boys day out in Skipton (twice yearly catch up with old friends) will be messy !! Been to Borough twice before both at Ayresome park and both times remember it was one of the coldest grounds I had ever been to ( 0 -0 in 1985 crowd 5,000 ish and 3 - 0 win in 1990 crowd 15,000 ish). Middlesborough are nicknamed Boro or the Smoggies and we're a founder member of the premier league with Rovers, but we're one of the teams relegated in that first season. Inter club fact - 96/97 season Boro were deducted 3 points by the PL for failing to fulfill their fixture against Rovers. There have been quite a number of recent connections between the clubs: Tony Mowbray, Mark Venus, Danny Graham, Richie Smallwood, Stuart Ripley, Harry Chapman, Paul Ince, Craig Higgnet, Yakubu, Marcus Bent, Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede. Area Facts Yarm great place for a beer similar to Clitheroe and you would often see footballers past and present (Gary Pallister last time there) If you are a golfer, two good links courses ( Seaton Carew and Cleveland) but also inland is the new set up at Rockliffe Hall where Boro have there training ground, it is magnificent and is owned by Steve Gibson who owns Boro. Let's hope for a Rovers win and kick start our tough festive period, I will leave all the team formations to everyone else !! COYB

  10. Back in 1996 I rang into talksport and told the nation that George Donis was going to a world beater and we would win the title again !! Only played around 20 games and he disappeared back to Greece

    I agree in general, I think Lester will improve as he is only young and possibly Lamb and Parkinson is the shining light but the rest have been poor.

    I agree especially with Jordan Clark leaving at the end of the season to join Surrey on a 3 year contract

    Great post, also just to add their goalkeeper was man of the match on their forums and got a special mention from their manager Neil Harris, which also backs up the stats page.
