    Kieran Scott - leaving?

    No I’m not saying that. To my mind, think back to when Carrick was appointed. The three leading candidates were Carrick, Rob Edwards and Gary O’Neil. Edwards was a player and then a youth coach at Wolves. I think Scott worked at Wolves? He may well have encountered him then and kept contact, or...

    Kieran Scott - leaving?

    Yes anything we can deem as ‘good’ was Danks, definitely. Not Scott. Anything we can deem as ‘bad’ was Scott, definitely. Not Danks. People bang on about Danks like he’s a combination of Rinus Michels and Jorge Mendes at times.

    Neil Warnock - Aberdeen

    It was a dreadful appointment in the first place. He’s a laughing stock now imo. I bet he’s still giving referees and linespeople dog’s abuse as well. Willie Miller has completely called him out in that piece. Aberdeen fans must be fuming to have him up there. All he’s doing is looking to add...

    Academy players - too cautious?

    Didn’t Kieron Scott say something about there being a great batch of 15-16 year-olds about to come through? He was also talking about the club wanting to sign players from elsewhere to bulk up the youth squads. To be honest I think I’ve heard this stuff about the next batch being the best batch...

    Red faction statement.. ticket prices

    I’m not sure I would call the team playing in front of thousands of empty seats for much of the last fifteen years ‘commercially sensible’ tbh. There has been absolutely no attempt to address that or grow the fan base, generating further revenue streams. Are we any further forward now than we...

    Red faction statement.. ticket prices

    At the risk of this thread also being locked, taken down, whatever, what’s that about the loyal fan and the director’s lounge? I’ve never heard that before.

    Red faction statement.. ticket prices

    If the content of that Private Eye piece is true then you can surely understand why people may be a little dubious towards the chairman. And it’s a matter of fact that he has endorsed and supported certain Tories. People are allowed to call him out on that imo.

    Academy players - too cautious?

    Apologies, I completely missed read his appearance stats. But he did break through into Brentford’s first team at 18, 19 and played FA Cup matches there. There is clearly talent there to work with. It is a bit odd to sign someone of that profile to keep them on the bench all season though.

    Academy players - too cautious?

    Gilbert has 28 at 22, so more than Jones. Maybe Gilbert is another anomaly. We don’t know. Nobody does, do they, not if we’re being honest, because we don’t see them day to day. I would expect him to go somewhere on loan next season though. It’s no good spending months on the bench, picking up...

    Academy players - too cautious?

    I have a mate who plays for Gateshead and he says Stott is nowhere near the levels of the established Gateshead players. He joined them after his loan with York was cut short and Gateshead were in the midst of an injury crisis. I actually thought Stott was 17, 18 until I read this thread tbh...

    Paul Pogba Banned From Football For Four Years

    Those having a go would be amazed at how lax some players are when it comes to taking stuff given to them by club doctors and medical staff. Pogba will be absolutely slaughtered for this but I’ve always thought most players operating at that top level will be taking all sorts of stuff. It’s...

    Malcolm Christie

    It’s not hard to work out who to invite though. You check which players played in the League Cup campaign and you set about contacting them and asking them if they’d like to join in the celebrations. That’s everyone from Southgate and Juninho to Ricketts, Christie and Carlo Nash. Plus McClaren...

    Red faction statement.. ticket prices

    There’s loads of truth in that. Look how the majority of posters on here and elsewhere responded to the Kieron Scott interviews with Tees and the recent podcast. He generated a lot of goodwill from just being open to going on and engaging. You can disagree with him or some of the things he said...

    Red faction statement.. ticket prices

    This is just my opinion but this is exactly why the chairman should get his arsè down to BBC Tees and openly engage with supporters and the town at large instead of hoping a handful of hastily arranged, closed-shop meetings conducted in private will quieten any dissenting voices. It’s just...

    Red faction statement.. ticket prices

    The message seems to be that the club have upset quite a lot of its supporters but that we, as supporters, have a duty to forgive and forget and move on. Things will be better next time. Just like we said they would the last time this happened. There will be no more discussion or debate, there...

    Dave Myers Hairy Biker RIP

    A real shame. Their TV shows were as warm, hearty and enjoyable as their recipes. RIP.

    Red faction statement.. ticket prices

    I’m very mindful of that and have already condemned the abuse and criticism he received. It’s not on. But I’m allowed to ask you the question, surely. There’s a sense that people are being discouraged from asking questions and asking for information tbh. It’s not good.

    I wonder if they invited Michael Ricketts.

    Malcolm Christie

    I took it as a given that everyone involved in the day would be going. The 16 players and the handful who never made the final squad. I think Nemeth, Cooper and Christie were the main three? But who decided not to invite some of the players, Jesus wept.
