Boro Shirt Sizes
Bit of a strange question but does anyone own or have seen the new away shirt in child size?
I'm a right short *** (5ft4) and the last Boro shirt I got was a small mans and it was a bit big.. embarrassing I know. I noticed they sell XLY which would probably fit me better but I've seen kids football tops in the past and the badge/sponsor/number look smaller.
Does anyone know if this is the case? I'd rather wear a top that's slightly too big than have people knowing I'm wearing a kids one! Ha.
I realise I've lost all man points for even posting this but nevermind.. I want a Vossen away top
The Loan Window 14/15
with the closure of the transfer Window last night, the loan window now opens.
but what can we expect from Boro? with a lot of of transfer business actually being loans are we expecting much more?
what are the limits of the loan window and how will this effect us?
what do we need in terms of depth and strengthening the squad?
does anyone expect a surprise signing?
who will leave during this window and where to?

Boro's Production Line - Is it still working?
So last night we saw without fanfare and ceremony the departure of Jason Steele to Blackburn and Seb Hines to Coventry so that they could pursue their careers elsewhere due to being surplas to current requirements.
This prompted me to think about our famed academy and the hopes of the past that we would see a continual production of home grown talent that would save Boro oodles of money or to generate loads of dosh when the big boys came in to buy our talented players.
But on face values it has not worked out that way for Boro has it?
This is no way meant as an attack on what is a brilliant academy with the facilities and leadership which is recognised throughout the land so let me make that clear straight away but something is not quite right and I can not put my finger on it so hopefully with a discussion and debate we all might be clearer as to what is going on player production wise.
As it stands right now after the recent activity we really only have Reach and Gibson who are and will be part and parcel of the first team squad and the likes of Fewster, Luke Williams, Atkinson on the edges subject to circumstances with the first team squad but in all likelyhood we know that once again some will be sent out on loan.
Apart from Downing and Jinky and Bennett we have not received or had big money offers for many of our ex Academy players and so many drifting away to lower league clubs where they are soon forgotten about and in my opinion never seen again as a much improved player fufilling their initial potential.
Powlay I know has made comments regarding the pros and cons of yearly batches of young players getting pro contracts and has highlighted to a degree ones to watch but with all the talent at their disposal it really does seem to me that there are very few that come along and we can say "he looks a good player" and becomes a firm favourite with the fans
So is it still working for Boro as a club and should we not be concerned that fewer and fewer are breaking into the first team and going onto bigger and better things?
A rallying call...
Everyone who can, get yourself a season ticket TODAY.(If youve not already got one like!)
Lets get the Riverside full every week

Non-Boro Deadline Day
Now I know we'll all be glued to the Transfer thread until Jelle and Yanic are confirmed, but thought this would be a good place to discuss what's happening today.
Confused as to why Man United are even linked to Falcao today. Yes he's a quality finisher, but they've already got Rooney and RVP, and they need a centre back more urgently in addition to Blind.
Confirmed Deadline Day Deals
ust thought it would be good to have a thread solely for done deals for those who don't have tine to read through the transfer thread.
Buckle up fellas i think we are in for an exciting ride this year.
Yanic Wildschut From Heerenveen 2 year deal with option of a year extension.
Jelle Vossen From Genk on a season-long loan subject to clearance.
Chelsea's England Under-19 international goalkeeper Jamal Blackman has joined the club on loan until January 17
Jason Steele has joined Blackburn Rovers on a season-long loan.
Seb Hines has joined Coventry City on loan until January 4
