The unemployment benefit payments in the South are ridiculous. Employees struggle to compete

 :alf: :alf:

T'be shore

They actually are. I worked a few years in County Mayo and standard jobless benefit was over €200 per week. The government would also build you a house if you had land to save on never ending housing benefit, and also because they lacked social housing.

People complain about single mothers in the Uk but in Ireland 2 kids guaranteed them around €30k a year and free housing.

Isn’t that what a discussion is? Or are we all just here to blow smoke up each other’s arses. Tell me where or how my issue is wrong? I called him out because for large parts of the game boro we’re good, yet not a peep. Then as soon as it goes wrong he pops up again. Whether you agree with the term “taking delight” or not it’s accurate here under the commonly accepted meaning.

As for the players Spence was arguably our best player without playing for us, followed by Tav. That’s why they’ve gone for the big bucks. As for the loanees; Balagoun, Connelly and Sporar played a lot for us, and despite them not being great they were some of our better performers. That’s nearly half a team gone and as of yet not fully replaced or improved on.

But as usual we have thrown it away with utter shite defending.

There he is, not interested when we were winning. It was nothing to do with defending, it was a mistake in midfield.


Did you have a bit of difficulty understanding what I wrote, and then comparing it to what I said about Bill. Your point is nonsensical.

I gave an opinion, which turned out to be wrong, I didn't hide from that and start gloating when the 3 points were lost.

Bill on the other hand only gets involved when things are going wrong, he never gives credit where it is due, and takes delight in the negative, which is my point.

Pretty sure you can see that if you read things again.

For what it is worth my original point still stands. Stoke were poorer than expected, but we really lacked a focal point for the attack. Until we fix that we are mid-table, because we won't put games to bed. We have some very good players in midfield, and the wide areas, and they put some top quality balls into the box. Whatmore did well, but he cannot carry the team alone.

Yet its ok for you to post this...

We'll get a good bumming tonight, it's not that we are a bad side per se, it's just a tough set of fixtures to start and we are currently midtable at best. But then what do you expect when you sell your best two players, lose some of the better players from last year to expiring loans and then "shop" in the bargain bucket.

Yet you seem to take issue with someone who's views differs to yours. Using words like "takes delight" when his opinions show signs of fruition. Thankfully, not every Middlesbrough fan is indoctrinated by BBC Tees & Gazette sycophancy.
Incidently, we didn't sell our best two players at all. Spence contributed nothing to MFCs 21/22 season whereas Tavernier was inconsistent throughout. As for losing some of our better players through loan endings, only Sporar came close to contributing anything, thats unless the totally ineffective Ernal Hernandez, James Lea Siliki, Folarin Balogun or Aaron Connolly rocked your boat?
