Middlesbrough U-21 (EFL Trophy) Tue 9 Oct, 7pm


#41

To put it into context, by turning up and winning two games, we’ve effectively recouped the outlay on Ferrier, turning him into a free transfer.

Cracking business.


#42

40k minus the cost of policing the away following.


#43

:rofl:


#44

I’d have said it means nothing if we lost, and it means nothing still.


#45

Can I ask why it was a 7pm kick off?
I can’t imagine that helped the attendance much.


#46

10k for a reserve game win. Cor moan at that really.


#47

Wonder which pocket Bonser will shove this into…

I agree to a certain extent regards the money, however lets not include this in the programme as a first team fixture and regard it as reserve football! It embarrassing.

I think this competition is finished no matter what format it is in now. Should we get to the final it wouldn’t interest me in the slightest. When Stevenage play a reserve side it tells you everything you need to know…


#48

Only 610 could be bothered to turn up for the other game in our group - Port Fail v Burton.
With 67 Burton fans making the trip


#49

Listened to the commentary on BBC Smog FM. The commentator and summariser (Neil Maddison), were absolutely unstinting with their praise of how we played, shape, pace, set-pieces, etc. Was really good to hear opposition people talking about us like that no matter what the competition.


#50

Good to hear that…and as you say it doesn’t matter about the competition.


#51

#52

Cracking goal from Cook!


#53

Excellent goal from Mr Cook.

:grinning:


#54

Well Look North covered last night’s match. Midlands Today?


#55

I went to last nights game mainly to see the back up players we have at our disposal and was pleased by what I saw…but this competition is done now and although we got to the final a few years ago and took 30.000 fans .If we were to get to the final again I think we would struggle to get 5.000 at Wembley such is the demise of this Mickey Mouse cup.


#56

I think you are under estimating the power of every midland fans second club syndrome :wink:


#57

I know what yr saying but when we went a few years ago there was a lot of people from Walsall who have no real interest in the club just that that it was our first time as a town at Wembley


#58

Wow what a strike from Cooke hope than spurs him on. UTS


#59

Wembley has lost all it’s glister to me.Every Tom ■■■■ and Grimsby has played there numerous times.


#60

Oh no …the nickname police have struck…d i c k?
