Not a chance of serious investment for some time to come, especially with the world the way it is currently.

It's the continual lowering of expectations that pisses me off.

We are now resigned to being not a team that regularly challenges for promotion, not a mid table team, but a team that regularly flirts with relegation to the third tier.

Bernie - spot on. More worryingly a number of our fans buy into this “ mere existence “ that now prevails

The professional football bubble is slowly deflating and shaping shape, and this Covid nonsense is accelerating it. As for Boro, they're a fine example of he consequences of running a business with a strategy based on cronyism and sycophancy with a dictator in charge who makes a catalogue of shitty decisions without being challenged.

Yes, the narrative now is that we will do well if we stay up.   souey

Currently the club at best is challenging for play off positions
No money
No long term view
Owner who no doubts loves the club but cannot compete
Owner who should have made the decision to get someone with good football background in to run the football side but ego wouldn’t allow it
Small club
Small town
Any form of cup run would be great
Otherwise we just make up the numbers like 95% of other clubs

All this emphasises that the Gibson regime has gone full circle. There is no money,no ambition and no savvy long term plan.

Theres certainly no ambition thats for sure. That ship sailed along with £49.5m three years ago.

In fact its pretty fair to say that the Steve Gibson of today has about as much ambition as Alf Duffield did 35 years ago.

Mike Ashley is a far better Chairman the Gibson. FACT

Only ever been in the 3rd tier of English football twice, gaining automatic promotion the season after. Two years in our history, Gibbo will break that record in the not to distant future.

Fook off Gibbo.

You must surely come up with an explanation for that.

When a cockney wide-boy takes over a northern club it is to sell it for a profit ASAP. Now that IS a fact.

I have argued for a long time that Gibson needs to sell up. He can't now even if he wanted to. Covid -19 has buggered everything up ,including football. I think we will see scores of clubs going to the wall and the Championship will be no exception.PL teams will survive for now on the back of TV money,but even this may not be enough in the longer term. Clubs like Boro will limp along for a while but if the virus persists then they will be in severe financial trouble. The good news however is that the gravy train for agents and pampered players may be coming to an end. In the end even Gibson might have to call it a day or go down with his " ship".

To be honest, we need Gibson more than ever now. He would cover any shortfall brought on by covid and keep the club afloat. He’s in too deep not to.
