Be quite happy with a point tonight ( long drive back if we get hammered ).
Norwich are no mugs and Carrow Road as others have said is not exactly our " Shangri La ".

Hopefully we will start with the same side as last week or very close to it at least. as we are looking a bit more solid at the back.
In fact sat in the trent end last week v Brum I felt I was sat behind a much more solid defensive line with Pantillimon and the two centre backs. I have to say the passing beteween Smith amd Worral has had my heart in my mouth more than once.

Thats not to say we are the finished article at the back, in particular the left back position, but definately imo tighter.

Hope to see either Brereton or Vellios ( unlikely I know but I am still not yet convinced he has had a fair crack of the whip. thumbs down aplenty no doubt :) ).

Thought the introduction of Murphy on Saturday offered us nothing but he may yet not be fully fit.

Either way its . .



1.) 06 Mar 2018 19:48:05
with you on this Creepy
good to see Pontilimon shouting to the back line rather than just fetching the ball and getting on with the game, we need a keeper who communicates with the defence.
I am a fan of Vellios and think he will do a better job than the other two at the moment, BB getting better but still miles away and Murphey not fit or getting any younget but proven.
enjoy the evening mate and bring us back 3 points

2.) 06 Mar 2018 21:45:56
Brereton too busy diving and looking for free kicks n penalties to play football. Missed the target on several occasions. Send him to Notts. With Murphy playing the way he did on Saturday we have no option but to play Velios. The best we have by a mile.

Loan Darikwa out to the lower leagues.

No real complaints from me about the result to be honest. I think Cardiff aren't really getting the credit I think their performance warranted.
They chased , harried and outmuscled us for most of the game.
Certainly the time wasting element of the game is annoying but its nothing new and not exclusive to Cardiff.

Not the greatest refereeing performance particularly the penalty but a different ref may have awarded it BUT may also have red carded Traore not yellow for what I thought was a dreadful tackle.

Murphy is looking tired and we may well be a bit light for someone to take his place but all in all I am not over concerned at all.
Cardiff are not second this close to christmas by a fluke and despite the shennanigans look a good side.

I still maintain we are better placed as a club than for some years.

PS I would rest Mckay for a while and start with Caryol for a couple of games on the left. Whenever he comes on things seem to happen.

COYR and tractor boys next ( love that journey hmm . )


1.) 28 Nov 2017 09:08:45
Welcome back Skegsay. As far as I'm concerned Ipswich will be a tough game and our record away is not very good. Of course I'd love us to win, and if Bridcutt is back I think we stand a chance, but I'm not over-optimistic!



28 Jul 2017 13:26:01
Just come from the shop ( which was very busy ) . Told me that the tickets are being posted out today "" no fail " so should be on the mat tomorrow.

Went yesterday at 1pm and taking around an hour and a half from back of queue to desk so went back just after 5 and only a couple of people in the ticket office so happy days.

Middlesbrough have completed a club-record deal to sign Britt Assombalonga from Nottingham Forest.

Assombalonga said: “I can’t wait to get started and train with the boys. I’m glad it’s completed and I can focus on what’s ahead now.

“I can’t wait to meet the manager and get ready for next season. There’s a good feeling around the place. From the minute I walked in it felt right. ”

Personally I think 14MIL is a joke, he clearly wanted out. oh well boro physios will be kept busy ;)

2.) 17 Jul 2017 21:41:53
well I'm glad that's over with. time to move on and get behind young Ben and cummings. let's hope they can fill the void.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 22:27:51
Gonna be tough to fill the goal gap britt leaves but if he wanted to go then the club is right to sell only players wanted are the ones who will fight till the death for the team.

4.) 17 Jul 2017 22:41:15
Assambolonga, Antonio, Burke. We have no ambition.

5.) 17 Jul 2017 22:49:35
Long eaton-in my opinion, we need stability before we can be ambitious. Fingers crossed that the money is spent wisely, hopefully we can make a few decent signings to improve the squad and continue to develop some of the younger players.

6.) 17 Jul 2017 23:02:59
His release clause was met and he wanted to go nothing to do with ambition.

7.) 18 Jul 2017 00:05:04
Bang on Redmash. Some people are just blinkered!

As soon as a club triggered his release clause then he was off and to be fair if I got offered over double I was earning now I would do the same.

Yes gutted to a Championship club but it now history onwards and upwards.

You Reds.

8.) 18 Jul 2017 07:23:32
Long eaton. - everton sell lukaka, soton an entire team over the last few years, but both seem to be doing ok, its the way of the football world, unless you are Real Madrid. What matters most is the owner and manager, we will find out soon enough.

9.) 18 Jul 2017 08:16:50
Agree with longeaton it just shows a total lack of ambition! As a new owner EM should be trying to lift the fans who are deflated after years of disappointment. How is selling our best player going to do that? If I was a season ticket holder i'd be feeling pretty ripped off now.

10.) 18 Jul 2017 08:17:02
Long Eaton Red

Assombalonga, Antonio, Burke sold because we have no money not because we have no ambition.

See Marco: won't spend his few hundred quid on a season ticket, unless the club spends millions.

Assombalonga just cost Middlesboro £15 million plus his salary of £3.1 million a year!

FFP is just not fair. Parachute payments make the unfairness even worse.

Footballers are no different to the rest of our sad and sorry society, greedy and selfish. I do not blame Assombalonga, who wouldn't move to double their salary? I don't blame the club, it has again done the business it needed to do to survive.

11.) 18 Jul 2017 08:25:24
No money? Our new owner owns Olympiacos! Hardly going to be short a few quid! Was hoping Olympiacos would sign Vellios for 15 million! that would have sorted us financially.

12.) 18 Jul 2017 09:31:14
Our last three owners have had multi million pound fortunes.

FFP will only allow a club and its owners to spend based on the money the club generates. Our club is currently losing millions of pounds on a consistent basis.
We now have a board of directors whose task it is to reverse these loses. Unfortunately, as I think Fawaz concluded, a board of directors costs a considerable amount of money too.

We need promotion or some other means of generating cash. As supporters all we can do is pay our entrance fees. I keep banging on about the Bayern Munich model, where they have cheap season tickets. They fill a much bigger ground than ours and make a fortune on merchandise.

13.) 18 Jul 2017 10:07:34
Obviously its a massive shame that he gone but both assombalonga and antonio wanted to go they both have premier league almost guaranteed within the next few seasons. though who agrees it would've been nice to see them three up top together. either way now he's gone i expect at least a couple more signings and for the dead wood stojikov ect. to be gotten rid of. as for positions i say possibly one more defender if we ship perquis and hobbs not sure which but i belive mance and worall are brilliant i want smith to start in goal so i hope we don't go for anther keeper uneccessary imo and perhaps one more midfielder vaughn is getting on despite his quality and cohen has to be careful due to his injuries and i still feel we need a good mid to replace lansbury.

I have to say that the siginings of Carvalho and Goncalves have come as a total surprise to me as two weeks ago I had never heard of either of them but then again I am not a keen follower of European football but surely at 13 million for one and an option to buy at 20 million for another it shows massive intent on the part of the owners.

The midfield area is not perhaps our weakest area of the pitch but can only surely be enhanced by these additions which leads me to wonder how much has been earmarked for our achilles heel of a forward line and right and left back positions.

One thing is for sure and that is all things being equal by this time next week we will know who our first team squad for the upcoming season will be as the manager stated a month ago that he wanted all the ins and outs resolved by the 25th June when the players return back for pre season training.
It is his belief that a new look squad needs 6 weeks together to bond and learn about one another which is something he thought was beneficial at Boro and would appear to make sense if his aim of introducing up to 10 players becomes a reality.

Who he has in mind to lead the line is at present something he is keeping close to his chest but two quality proven strikers are a must for us to push on next season but he is going to be one very busy man next week with probably at least a dozen players to be sold/loaned or in my opinion more likely paid off.

I have said on here before that I would be happy with a top ten next season but it looks like the owners are being more ambitious l than that and I suspect play offs will be the minimum they will accept.

With this level of investment Mr Karanka and his i new look side will have to hit the ground running because let's be honest the 20 or so matches he was in charge for were not exactly scintillating ( this is NOT an attempt to reignite old Warburton v Karanka passions ) and with record season ticket sales expectations will be sky high.

As things stand we appear to have real owners with real money providing real investment both on and off the pitch ( I suspect the Main Stand is breathing its last hopefully ) and we begin a new campaign better placed than for a CONSIDERABLE period of time and I for one will enjoy the ( hopefully ) less bumpy ride.

AS always . .



1.) 16 Jun 2018 14:46:19
If karanka not comfortably in top 4 challenging for auto promotion by December he will be gone.

Much appreciated 2star.
Creepy by name creepy by nature :-)
Red always I don't think you are too far wide of the mark. Massive first dozen games or so .



14 May 2018 11:23:31
The manager allegedly addressed the entire first team squad last Tuesday and informed them as to which players figured in his plans for the forthcoming season.

For those who didn't he wanted them to show " how hungry " they were to play and find themselves new clubs as opposed to sitting back and taking the easy money.

Well so far ( I know the window isn't open until thursday ) there appears to be no indication of any of them feeling even a little peckish never mind hungry which unfortunately comes as no real surprise.

Hand on heart I can't see many of the players he has no doubt told to leave either attracting any sort of meaningful fee or perhaps more to the point being able to find a club who will match the wages they are on for the next 1,2 or 3 years with us.

Its very difficult to blame these players because no one really wants to go somewhere else to do the same job at possibly half the wages so the only real solution would be as far as I can see to pay up players contracts to get them out which could turn into an expensive business.

I have zero experience of running a business , never mind a football club, but if I was to be thinking about employing new staff I would want firstly to be rid of those I didn't want so I had an idea as to how much my wage bill was going to be.

Lets hope that Thursday brings better news for us and we don't have to be scrabbling around at the back end of the window for what's left over as has happened in the past.

As always . .



1.) 14 May 2018 13:32:47
You have two points here creepy, which highlight how difficult it is to move on players you don't want anymore, after giving them good deals on long term contracts. The best solution is if they can be sold or moved on as part of another deal. But as you said, the player doesn't have that incentive, other than for football reasons. You could pay up a contract, but the cost won't disappear from the company accounts. It would still be an expense showing in the ledger. Selling or loaning is the only way to lose the financial liability or at least make it cost neutral!

2.) 14 May 2018 13:46:56
I wouldn’t read too much into things just yet Creepy. Think you will find that most players will be away for the next fortnight or so (on their holidays) and probably their leeches too. Expect to see some movement in June once they all return from their hols. Contracts generally run til 30th June so expect announcements from July 1st although may be sooner with some deals as we start back on 25th June! I think AK will press ahead with his incoming deals regardless. This will do two things. 1. Show he means business again like he did in January. And 2. Show the players he wants to move on just how far they are down the pecking order. Then as pre season progresses and the new season is upon us, players will want to find new clubs or go out on loan if they know they won’t be playing at Forest under AK. Enjoy the summer and the World Cup in the meantime.

3.) 14 May 2018 14:34:23
Hopefully you are right Ruddy but I genuinely can't see many players giving up lucrative contracts for nothing.
Ward for example will collect over half a million pounds for the last year of his contract by which time he will be 33.

He has played 57 games for us scoring three times. Was no doubt a useful loan signing to Burton but we had to contribute a fair slice of his wages to make it work.

Murphy,Bouchalakis,Vellios have 2 yrs.
Clough and Mckay have 3.5 0r 6 more have a year

These are players who for one reason or another have not proved too successful either with us or on loan and I just can't see a mad rush to scoop them away .

Ive harvested the humbles however and hope to be consuming a large pie sooner rather than later.

Aa always.

Not a chance for me I am afraid. Bores me rigid

5.) 14 May 2018 18:47:46
If AK and the Owners want players gone, I'm sure they will manage it. Nothing certain now till July 1st. so nothing to say. The rest is Journogarbage, looking for stories in the silly season.

6.) 15 May 2018 22:24:30
Let’s hope so Creepy. Be an interesting summer that’s for sure. With players like Ward he probably doesn’t have many more years left in his career so all down to his desire (injuries permitting) to play football regularly. One would hope that he would want to spend his twilight years playing as much as possible but time will tell. Anyone not in AK’s plans that wants to play (not bench warm) will look to move on even if only on loan. Here’s hoping anyway. Cheers



06 May 2018 19:50:56
I was a little surprised to see that both Hobbs and colback were in the starting line up as I couldn't ( and cant) see what the manager had to gain from playing a loanee who will be no doubt driving north to Newcastle now and a player who can be surely nowhere near match fit.

Surely there can be no doubt Hobbs will leave us this summer and will not be offered another contract with his unfortunate but appalling fitness record.

I thought that we were lethargic and sloppy all over the pitch giving the impression many of the team were already " on the beach " as it where and Bolton were to my mind unlucky not to go into the break leading.

Brererton continues along in similar fashion ( yes I am aware he is only 19 etc) and spurned three golden opportunities of which one was presented to him wrapped up on a silver plate by Tomlin and he continues to actively seek free kicks when he could well gain by staying on his feet.

In a scrappy second half little improved ubtil after Bolton opened the scoring and Osbourne finished off a strong forward run with a cracking 20 yard strike.

An excellent goal well taken no doubt but I have seen Osbourne ( and to be fair others) in virtually the same circumstances who elect not to shoot but stopo, take a touch and either pass square or back.

Osbourne alone could have had 5 or 6 more goals this season if he had just trusted his foot and had a pop.

A point was of no use to Bolton who threw men forward allowing us to take the lead and I genuinely expected us to add to our tally but I should have known better.

Our defense was unable to close out the game and protect a lead with defending which was of a standard that defies belief.

Honestly, good luck to Bolton who chased , harried and never gave anything up all game and they deserved to win and clearly wanted it far more than we did which is an obvious statement bearing in mind the relative league positions of both clubs .

In fact Mr Karanka intimated as much implying that there was nothing for his team to play for today whilst it was clearly all on the line for Bolton.

Playing for the points maybe one thing but may I remind him and the team that there were at least 2145 reasons to perform and play in the Franking Sense stand.

Another season ends and in reality it was little better than the last few debacles we have all witnessed and I think its time we got dished up much better fare next season so let's hope and assume backsides will be kicked flotsam will depart and real proper quality signings ( NOT LOANS) will arrive come August.

We have to hope as we always will and . .



1.) 06 May 2018 20:30:09
Since players in the top divisions mostly became rich even when of average ability a lot of them have past caring when the team has nothing to play for, and when managers are being changed as often as the clubs shirts, or sooner.

Brilliant post creepy. You don’t have to do one

3.) 06 May 2018 20:47:00
Win at all costs what you say is quite correct but what I don't want to be TOLD is that fans travelling to a game like this are not really worth the effort.
I am not naive but just like to be , shall we say, " humoured " a little.

4.) 06 May 2018 21:54:34
Creepy1, you are a valued hard working fan, the type every club needs. Today our players let you down for that we apologise and when you come to the club shop you will receive a penny off any purchase you make.

5.) 07 May 2018 02:26:50
Thank you most sincerely for your kind words and most generous offer.
God bless you : )



25 Apr 2018 11:11:22
Very much an " end of term " feeling around the WFCG last night against a pretty poor Barnsley side but you can only play against the opposition in front of you.
We completely dominated the first half with Tomlin being at the centre of everything offensive and capped it off with a superb goal.
Brererton took his goal very well indeed and should dwell on that today because it showed what he is capable of notwithstanding some poor defending.

An awful shame for Fuentes who in his brief time on the pitch did not look out of place and one casn only hope he recovers quickly and well wherever he finds himself.

I expected more of the same second half but was a littlle surprised at the lack of urgency and we seemed to take our foot off the pedal but a 3 nil victory cannot be sneezed at.

On the negative side I felt Guedioura had a below average game again and he seems to be trying too hard at times .

Lets hope a full pre season can improve him.

Two games to go of what has once again been a very disappointing season and I am dreading the close season with no football as usual but let's hope we are back bigger and better in August.

As always.


Ps The world cup doesn't count to me. International football zzzzzzzzzzz.
Wont watch a minute of it :)


1.) 25 Apr 2018 11:45:45
Thought we looked a better team without colback creepy?
He doesn't do much wrong neat and tidy simple pass,but no urgency in his play,Can see why Benitez wants rid,Not quick enough for the prem.
We get leggy in second halves,but Lolly changed that,what a dribble taking out four men like that.
Shows we were right to let pinilos go,cash ran him ragged.
First game I've enjoyed for a while some more of that on Saturday against better opposition and I'll be happy.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 12:00:30
Spot on with that assessment Forest79. Think Bridcutt is under rated and does a better all round job than Colback as he can get forward and presses higher up the pitch. Would not break the bank for Colback when we have as good here already and would rather use the cash for a couple of decent strikers. Thought Mancienne and Fox looked ok but were well protected by the midfield. Agree with Creepy re Guedioura- he is trying too hard and wants to score the wonder goals when he was here (and largely carrying us) last time. Needs to calm down a bit and keep it simple. An enjoyable night all round bar wins for the sheep and scousers

3.) 25 Apr 2018 12:05:05
I agree f79. Was at Fulham for Colbacks first game and he looked a cut above and carried on pretty well in the same manner for a while.
I think the problem is he is a loan player on huge wages coming towards the end of the season and has no real attachment to us so will understandably be wary of getting injured either for his summer holidays ( which I doubt will be Skeggy as lovely as it is ) or for any prospective move.
His wage demands will I think prove too much for us going forward next season.

For my money Cash has been our most improved player this season and is one of the few who appears to wear his tree shaped heart on his sleeve ( metaphorically speaking that is ).

Once more .


4.) 25 Apr 2018 19:07:44
Cash has been very unlucky with injuries when he's just been looking the part.
Was going great preseason till the last game and out for the start of the season.

" Aitor Karanka must give Nottingham Forest an identity in order to turn the cycle of hope into actual achievement ".

This is a headline from the Nottingham Post.

1.) 22 Apr 2018 19:17:11
If you did read it you would have seen it refers to finding a playing style that makes us successful, when you keep changing your manager it is not possible.

Not really sgetty I just try to put down my thoughts and opinions on here as I see them.
Part of the reason my posts go on a bit sometimes is that I have plenty of time on my hands to look at things in a balanced way and I try not to come on in a knee jerk reactionary way eg after the shambolic Preston performance which left me spitting blood quite frankly and let the dust settle for a few hours.

Also a big influence in my posting is funnily enough the Nottingham Post whose reporting of what is happening borders on the absurd at times and riles me to the extent where I believe I can do better ( which quite frankly isn't difficult ).

As we all do I look at the Post site because its really about all we have and click on the Transfer updates section to be informed that Lee Westwood has won a golf tournament , Barnsley have a new manager Aston Villa have signed x, Rotherham have signed Y etc etc and it infuriates me.

We all like to read informative articles about our club that take into account the wide and varied opinions that we all have withiout resorting to the throwing around of name after name as the Post do.

The place to toss names about is on here , a banter and rumour site , not in a newspaper and you are quite right regarding offensive comments which seem to be creeping in on here from what appear to be new members who as far as I can check have not posted before.

Thank you for your comments and let's wait with baited breath for 11hrs to see whose up first .

There can be no doubt that Lichaj has been a fully committed and loyal player to this club for the past 5 years and has fully deserved all of our support and plaudits that have come his way.

Unfortunately he has been at the heart of and on many occasions marshalled a defence that has seen us sliiping down the table and flirting with relegation.
I accept and understand that he is not the only defender on the pitch but we have been defensively atrocious at times and steps are being taken to rectify this ie with Figuerido and now Dawson and it is, to my mind,an inescapable conclusion that he is not good enough but in the same breath I am far from convinced that Darikwa is much of an improvement.

Hopefully we will see some quality signings in this and other positions which must surely come in the wake of the Portugese signings.

In closing I wish to add that the awful comments being aimed at his wife are completely and utterley unaccepatable and those responsible sully the name of this club.

Roll on 9am tomorrow.
