    Hes clearly fallen out with Dyche, I agree what hes doing is wrong but he wanted out in January and for some reason Dyche wouldnt even loan him despite having no use for him so I understand his frustrations as well.

    I just hope it doesnt end up making the club look bad having him dressed in Boro training gear running about like he plays for us.. he clearly still has his heart in the area but i guess his wage demands would be way too high for anything we could afford, its all just a bit weird to me mate. I dont think Woody is that pleased about it, he said something along the lines of his uncle owns the club so he can come and go as he pleases didnt he.

    Im not too sure I havent seen Woodgate comment on it Im sure Gibson would take much lower wages to rejoin us but obviously Burnley wont be happy and wont want to sell to us after letting him train with us. Unless we give them Fry Im surprised how many clubs hes linked with hes clearly got potential but overall hes had a poor season.

    Yeah like you say his season, like the rest of the team has been bang average. It will be interesting to see what happens with Gibson tbh, but at the moment the situation stinks.

    On a more pressing matter, i cant believe Howson has been allowed to run down his contract, we really are screwed.

    Ayala too although imo Howson has been much better as a rb and cb for us then he ever was when he played as a cm. Versatile players like that are really useful im in the minority of Middlesbrough fans who will miss Shotton as well i think overall he has done a good job for us at rb and cb.

    I've officially taken the plunge and downloaded Football Manager. Will report back when I've won the Champions League with Kettering.

    5 Seasons in the Prem, 10 Seasons total, basically 2 months exactly, over 200 Hours- but we're in the endgame now. Up the Kett.

    Should also point out I've properly banged this season. Could've even got Champions League from winning the Europa.

    Anyone indulged in a bit of PES2020 this year? I've started playing it, much prefer the concept of MyClub to Fifa's Ultimate Team but my word the gameplay is horrific.

    Being a bit snakey with this only giving fans a refund option until Friday. Taken the full refund because there's no guarantee we'll be able to go to games start of next season either. Plus I reckon 75% of our games are going to end up on TV because of where we are so the Fulham TV option is moot.

    Not going through this on here again. Spent like 4 hours trying to get one to work before and I just ended up with a load of files and an unzipper downloaded. I embrace the generic badges.

    League One teams getting tested before the vote on how to end the season, you couldn't make this up. I gave up on us getting in the playoffs weeks ago but the weekly ❤️❤️❤️❤️ the EFL keep having is unbelievable.

    I guess with all this destroying statues of ‘wrong uns’ at the minute there is a risk that yours won’t be lasting much longer Wheeler?

    Assuming you mean the Michael Jackson one we haven’t had it at the Cottage for at least 5 years now. Think it’s in a museum somewhere.

    But it would’ve 100% ended up in the Thames otherwise.

    Col U v Cheltenham at Wembley potentially. Doesn't get much bigger than that.

    For the Championship I'd think the Semi's would start the Saturday and Sunday after the last round of fixtures on the Wednesday. And then Midweek 2nd legs and Final maybe the following weekend which would be 1st week of August.

    Don't know for L1 and L2 because they obviously aren't playing out the rest of the season. Depends if they want to do the usual Play-Off weekend at Wembley with all of the games over the weekend. Although I think the only Bank Holiday we have in August is right at the end so who knows.

    No they weren’t. Was that the 1-4?

    Weird thing was that team was good on an individual basis. Ayling, Flint, Freeman, Bryan, Kodjia...

    It was. Think I took that photo about 4 rows further forward than I was originally after Tunnicliffe's chip.

    ... and our team was absolutely shambolic apart from McCormack, Dembele and Cairney and we still had Kit Symons in charge. Only thing I remember about it is we matched your 3 at the back and there was some very suspect defending. Think Flint literally put Dembele in 1 on 1 for one of the goals.
